    Hi Everyone,

    I'd like to join in too. We're CD2 of our first IVF cycle after several unsuccessful IUIs. We'd become old timers when it came to IUIs but feeling like real newbies now in IVF world so it would be great to have some online company for the journey!

    We're using donor sperm and doing a reciprocal IVF cycle (I have good eggs but a rubbish fibroidy uterus, DP has not so great eggs but an excellent fully functioning uterus) so it's a bit like a tag team. All going to plan ( does that ever happen??) I'll get to EPU stage and then over to her for transfer .

    Anyway, just wanted to say hi, I'm a bit new to forums so just getting the hang of posting and trying to keep up.

    Hey there, We're TTC #2; our DS (21 months old) it took 2iui, 3 stim cycles and a fet to get him. Hope it doesn't take all that for no 2.
    Had a few scan already and got my next scan on mon, so then I'll know if epu will be wed or fri.

    How is everyone else doing? Anyone else got epu this week?

    @Sariele Thank you for that advice! I wish someone had given me that heads up before we started. I went overboard being positive, I even had hypnotherapy to get over my trepidation about IVF, which worked brilliantly but the results arent looking positive. We had 12 retrieved on Wednesday, 9 injected, only 3 fertilized and got the sad news today (day 3) that none of them have grown to the normal stage of 9 cells (1x5 cell stage but fragmented, 1x2 cell, 1x3 cell). 😢 They are going to call on Monday morning, before we were meant to be having implantation to let us know. Before we started DH and I had agreed to only have 2 rounds of IVF. I nearly didn't want to post because I didn't want to bum out any of you who haven't started yet, but at the same time, I wish I'd been more realistic, as Sariele pointed out. The counsellor at Repromed had warned us that the waiting for the pregnancy test would be difficult, I wish I'd been warned how challenging this stage is. For those of you who haven't started your first round yet, I'd recommend lots of lovely distractions for between retrieval and implantation! ☺️
    I reckon the distraction idea sounds like a good plan were having ours put back on Friday. I've just bought wallpaper for our room to keep busy lol

    Hi everyone. I thought I'd chime in and say I hope 2016 is the lucky year for us all. I'm starting a new cycle next week after 3 stims (3 fresh transfers) and 2 fets. This will be my last attempt with my current clinic before I change to a new one. I'll be having a det with my last remaining embryos and the Bondi protocol. I'm praying this is the last round for me but I never get too hopeful. The let down is horrendous as most of you probably know. Not that this is always the case for you first timers but it's better to prepare for the worst in my opinion. Wishing you all lots of babydust ladies xxxx

Was referred to a specialist who performed laparoscopy in June. Found severe endometriosis and blocked tube. Also had another op in Aug to remove a uterus septum.. Currently have a mirena in to stop my period and control the endo.. Big hurdles in 2015 and was hard for hubby to accept ivf is the safest option for me. Seeing my fs next wed and find out our start date for the ivf journey as well as taking out the mirena (aargh) .. Extremely nervous and trying to stay positive.. Any similar stories??
    Hi @Kathk18 I kind of have a similar story.
    Been trying to conceive for a few years now (i've lost count how long). About 6mths into trying I was in emergency because of severe pain, but the doctors thought it was kidney stones. I decided against having an ultrasound twice - it was 2am and I didn't want to hang around till 9am for the sonographer to come in, and once referred from GP @ 6mths TTC to check for infertility issues because I didn't think I had any. Anyway, 12mths of TTC I went in for a scan and lo and behold I had severe endo! I was "riddled" with cysts (Dr's words). I dunno what other probs I had but my uterus was stuck to my bowel and I had endo on the bowel in other places too. I've now had 2 laps to remove the endo by one of the top endo surgeons. Second time was about 18mths after the first! within that 18mths, we were TTC naturally. Did your doctors recommend you do that? I kinda wish I had just gone on hormones to suppress the endo for a while.

    So here I am now, waiting for AF to arrive in 5 days so we can get our one and only frozen embie back in! Good luck everyone on your IVF journeys! I've had one (and a half) stim cycles, it's no fun, but I know this is not the end for me unfortunately.

    @Mink who was your endo surgeon if you dont mind me asking? And sad but good to see a familiar name.

    AFM ive just made an appt with another FS to have embies transferred. Appt is this Thursday.
    Does anyone know how long it takes to transfer and start a FET cycle with a new FS??

    Hi all,

    About to start our first IVF cycle with PGD. AF due in a day or 2 and then will start stimming. Our story is long and complicated and my signature pretty much sums it up, but here goes...

    Natural conception with DD (2008) and DS (2010). DD diagnosed with rare syndrome/disability caused by chromosomal rearrangement. I am carrier. DS (already here) is a miracle and unaffected by disability and not a carrier. DH and I desperately want another child as we always wanted 3 and feel it's important that DD and DS have another sibling as the road ahead will be tough for all. Visit IVF clinic 3 years ago and told they cannot help us, as chromosomal rearrangemnet/deletion too small to be detected. Decide to try natural conception with CVS. 2 X miscarriages at 10 & 14 weeks. Lots of grieving, I can't do it again. Last ditch effort, visit IVF clinic again. Technology has progressed significantly. Testing reveals we can now do PGD with 95% accuracy! So here we are about to start the journey! So different to many of you, as I don't have fertility issues, but unfortunately I do have dodgey chromosomes. This is costing us our savings (PGD, the type we need is ridiculously expensive) but will be so worth it!

    Expect lots of crazy questions from a total newbie! Excited to share this journey with you all!

    Hi @Evelynmoo good to see you here too (plus some other familiar names from Nov/dec). I've still been quietly following, and sorry to hear yours didn't work out... Especially after all that waiting around you did, and again with the ectopic (was that you?) my endo specialist is dr Michael cooper who is also my FS. I'm not sure how long FET would take starting at a new clinic. I suppose there'd be a lot of paperwork to get embryos moved to a new clinic etc. I haven't started but I'm expecting to be pretty straight forward as my hormones and cycle seem to be mostly textbook. All I know is the transfer will take place 5days after ovulation. Good luck this time around! I hope Jan/feb thread brings us more happy news! Xx
    @missmilliesmum welcome! Lots of experienced ladies here with lots of very helpful advice. I've learnt so much about the IVF journey from just lurking around these threads hehe. I'm sorry to hear what a complicated journey you've been on but glad that PGD testing is available to you. It would be such a relief just knowing you will transferring the healthiest embryo possible! Good luck!
