Still BFN how can we be so unlucky...
Not sure Keiko but not looking good. 8dpt and BT tomorrow so can't see how it could change in a day. The only time I've really heard of people getting results after now have either gone on to have Chems or were using cheap hpts... FRERs are meant to pick up anything over 5 😩

Ducky01 - Thanks hun and yes thinking of my appointment as I step forward, will let you alk know how it goes.
StillHopeful - So sorry to read about yr BFN hun wasbso hoping for a suprise.
Hi all. Sounds like it's been pretty average around here lately . I'm so sorry to the ladies who have had bad news. This journey just sucks all the way through. I'm sure it's all worth it in the end but what would we know? It's funny, I started out doing ivf when I was 23. So young - even though the doctor told me it would be tough going because my endo was so horrific, I sort of expected it to work straight away. Now I'm edging closer to 27 still with no baby and wondering if it will ever happen. Back then I was saying I wanted 4 kids!! Now - oh what I would give for just one. Sorry to be such a Debbie downer. Just feeling a little fragile. And so sad for all of you lovely ladies.
Yesterday went well - I think I got given too much GA though as I couldn't wake up. I was late going in, it was supposed to be 830 but didn't get in til after 9am. Wazza said it went well and looked okay in there, apart from I seem to have a heart shaped uterus. I would have thought I should have been told that by now - so many surgeries. Anyway he said that shouldn't be too much of a problem in trying to conceive. I have my day 2 appointment with him on the 18th, where I'll start on gonal f - never been on that one before, my old FS always used puregon. Bit sore and crampy today but all good otherwise and back at work.
Hi @Ree888. Glad you are feeling better and the surgery went well. I can't believe you are back at work already! I'm bad enough after EPU let alone surgery. Very brave! Hoping the gonal f does the trick for you. Surely it has to work somehow. And jolly gosh... 4 years.... That makes me weak at the knees just thinking of that! 😁
Thanks @Keiko2012. It hasn't been 4 solid years of ivf - childcare wage means we cannot afford to to back to back cycles ever. So crazy how much it is. We've always had breaks in between. Im so sorry about your cycle. I know how gutted you must be. I understand why you're thinking about getting a different donor. We decided to choose another one as we wanted a fresh start. I hear you on the animal front too. I have two dogs and two cats - love them to bits. They seem to know when you need a bit of love too. I've started doing some volunteer photography work for some animal rescue groups which is fun but hard as well as I want to take them all home!!
Oh wow @Ree888 - I've just been thinking about a hobby and maybe starting photography. Just for myself of course. I would love to volunteer at shelters etc but just can't bring myself to leave without one. So once I go in there we are getting an animal lol! How do the cats get along with the dogs and vice versa? I think ours would hate it - another reason not to get a dog lol.
The more and more I'm thinking about this whole donor issue I think I'm ready to swap. I knew DH is not quite there yet. I mean it's so hard finding one in the first place.
I've been looking after an ex 32/40 prem Bub the last few days ( a twin) the other one is still in special care. Gosh she's just so cute and I just wanted to take her home. As silly as it sounds and I wouldn't think this would happen- I think she's healed me in a way. Made me even more determined not to give up and put up the biggest fight. I'm ready for it physically and emotionally. Financially is another story. But I can't imagine not ever having children!
@StillHopeful I've been thinking about you Hun. Have you tested this pm? I'm still crossing my fingers for some miracle - but I know that this seems like a far stretch.
@Keiko2012 they all get along really well actually. Our first cat we adopted as a 18wk old kitten and she was around dogs at her foster home. Our older dog we've had since a puppy - she's a lab x staffy, and we've always had cats so she's used to them. Our other dog is a german shepherd and again, we've had her since a puppy and always had cats, then the baby of the family, another rescue kitten but we got him at 8 weeks old, he hated the dogs at first but loves them now. They all sleep together in the laundry every night. We always find them curled up on the blanket together in the morning. So cute
I'm glad you've been able to heal looking after that gorgeous little bub. Newborns always seem to make everything okay don't they?
@StillHopeful I hope you are doing okay. I've been thinking of you.
