@theoneandonlyem - maybe around February? Not sure, to be honest. Haven't thought of a date to start again. Currently just trying to get myself out of my sadness and self-destructiveness rut.
Congrats Funchu!! How exciting!!
Oh Shrillian - it is a roller coaster ride! I'm looking forward to new beginnings in 2015!!
Good luck to the rest of the ladies here x
I've been missing lots of posts for some reason they aren't showing up?!
Congratulations funchu!! Wishing you a very uneventful pregnancy
Boysie I'm sorry you've endured so much heart ache I am another who would definitely be interested in reading your story.
Sorry about this cycle cinder it's just not fair!
I've been feeling very angry and sad the last few days and I can't seem to shake it. Why isn't there an off switch for this wanting a baby thing :/ I just want January to hurry up so I can get my follow up appointment and get all the proper details so we can access just how hopeless ttc naturally is and figure a way to move on from the thoughts of a family.
I may not be around much over Christmas so I'm wishing you all a very merry holidays and I hope you all have a fantastic new year!!
Went to the FS today to talk about IUI. He's said he'll do "mates rates", so 20% discount which might be enough to swing DH around I love that I get mates rates lol. We have until next week to decide what to do, so hopefully it's the IUI! He also did a quick scan today and some bloods (reminds me, I need to phone for the results) which confirmed that I am at the beginning of my cycle (thin uterine lining, ruptured follicles), so that's promising. Regardless, I'm back on the Clomid from tonight. Good. I've been missing the hot flushes the last couple of weeks!
Ahhh clomid. Thank god I never have to take that again. 9 cycles of week long headaches, moodiness and shocking ovulation pain
Luckily the hot flushes seem to be the worst I get.
Now I have a question for you ladies.. Did you/have you told your boss that you're going through fertility treatment? If I go ahead with IUI, my insemination day will be next Friday. I'm rostered to work a 12hr shift. I'm not sure how my boss will take it if I do tell her (I've just been made permanent on this particular ward and I've only been there a month). I want to ask for personal leave but I have a feeling she's just going to tell me to swap my shift. When my DHs grandma died she made me take unpaid leave because I couldn't find anyone to swap a shift with. I don't really want to have to swap, I just want the leave!
I told my boss, but it was easier that way for me.
I've been having bad ovulation pain this month for some reason and I'm not even on any medication.
@oneandonlyem I hope your DH is convinced with mates rates! Do you know your FS personally?
@starflame - I agree it is hard to switch off from baby thing especially after TTCing for so long. Have a few drinks over Xmas and enjoy yourself with hubby and family x
