    Hopefully a freshie will do its thing when you stim @rainbow road. Do you know if you can stim straight away or will you be doing it next year?

    Default Same Sex Parents TTC List #3

    I don't know yet... I'll ask tomorrow when they call with my results. I strongly suspect I'll have to wait a month.

    How are you ladies feeling?

    Not too bad. It's frustrating having to wait and try again (don't know if anyone enjoys TTC) but we are also excited about what the future holds so that's also good.

    It would feel wrong to complain when we have only been trying for 2 months which hasn't even been 2 full months because DP and I switched so saved 2 weeks of waiting to O again anyway. We also had initially planned to start the whole process next year so we are still ahead of the timeline we expected. We wanted to have a spring or summer bub and now with any luck we will end up with exactly that. Hopefully we don't end up trying for long enough to get back to a winter due date! One never knows though!

    So when we look at all of that then it makes it all okay 😊I don't think DP will go for the bloods tomorrow, she'll save herself an extra needle and just wait for AF.

    How are you feeling about it all? Might be a silly question.

    Fair enough. She is needle phobic isn't she? I'll go if I still have a line, but if not I won't bother. It's across the road from playgroup anyway.

    I'm feeling unsurprised because I didn't think it would work, but really not thrilled about the prospect of STILL TTC. It's been over a year since our first appointment!

    And to add insult to injury, CFC called today, asking us if our baby had been born! We faxed them the obstetrician report from DPs D&C!

    Ouch! That would have been awful 😞 I'm not sure which Dr you used with them but they sound completely hopeless and I'm sorry that they put you through that! It's been a big year for you so maybe a break over Christmas might help for you guys to just have some nice and relaxing time with one another. It's kind of good to have a nice distraction at this time of year and something fun to focus on! Christmas will make time fly!!

    ETA - yeah she is doing well with needles but she wouldn't have one without good reason. We would definitely expect a good line by now so we are going to call this cycle a bust. If she doesn't get AF in a few days then we will see what a hpt shows but unless that happens then we just soldier on.

    I'm sorry this cycle didn't work ladies and Rainbow road I couldn't imagine how hard it was to get that letter from CFC.. Big hugs to you all..

    Since our last IUI this month has gone so fast had our appointment to sign paper work for IVF and found out we will now get medi care for future rounds. Yay!
    We have reached the top of the donor wait list for IVF which we were not expecting till Jan, we decided to stay at the top of the list until we are ready as once we pick we only have two months till we lose the allocation with out using it. But it makes it feel real that we are sitting at the top.
    Have our last appointment before starting IVF on the 11th Dec so counselling, nurse, and PLA accounts 😁 not looking forward to seeing what the bill will come to..
    Our plan is to start a full cycle Jan after we get thru the holidays ( if we can wait that long)

    That's so exciting @NandM! Hopefully time goes really quickly for you over the holidays and you will be on the IVF merry go round soon! My memory is shocking but who is doing the IVF and who is carrying?

    I'm sure it will go quickly this whole year has, I got a reminder I needed anther referral just about 12 months from our first appointment..!
    I will be doing IVF and going to carry still we looked at DP doing the stim cycle and I carry but that would have ment lose our spot on the donor list and waiting double the time to switch over.. No way we wanted to wait for 6 months for a donor lol so will continue on this path 😀

    Sorry it doesn't look like it's worked for either of you tortoise and RR. I'm hoping your fresh stim cycle is the one for you RR. And that switching back to you Tortoise gets you that BFP.

    How exciting NandM. I remember that overwhelming feeling once we got to the top of the list. I said to DP we'd sit at the top as long as we needed to before we chose our donor. I had no idea we'd select him within 24 hrs!
