    @Summer - I'm also in raging PMT land at the moment! On a natural cycle, AF due tomorrow. I don't even bother wasting money on tests as from 4-5 days out I know the signs that AF is coming and unfortunately have never even been suprised to the contrary. Feeling very over the whole thing at the moment.

    Question- does everyone's clinic use IMSI with the ICSI process? I've been reading about it and Monash doesn't seem to use it. PICSI or HAICSI is all they offer (which my FS has told me not to waste my money doing this time as a result of a recent conference he was at). I'm a bit worried about doing the standard ICSI since even with the HAICSI my fert rates have been about 50% twice and once got to 70%.

    Oh @Summer
    You're so stressed and rightly so, go to your GP, get a referral for a psychologist ( under a mental health plan so no fee) and ask for something to help you sleep. There's no shame in needing either of those things. Your employer may even have an employee assistance program where you can access free sessions.
    Screw what other people say about "mothering" time to just be blunt and tell them that their comments are not helpful and are downright hurtful. I know we have to except that many people will never understand the pain and feelings associated with infertility but doesn't mean we can't tell them to shut the hell up if we want to!!!!

    I have a little ap on my phone called "simply being" I find it really helpful to help me relax and sleep as well.
    Sorry your having such an overwhelming shi1ty time

    No embryo transfer for me today -- all arrested yesterday it seems. WTF meeting next week with Warren after I spend a few days eating my own weight in chocolate and fruit buns.

    @Green lady I thought IMSI and PICSI were similar but different clinics label them as either one of the other. I was never offered these except for Genea mentioned PICSI when I had a WTF apooitment after two average cycles with them. QFG uses IMSI (I think). @Summer wow you have a lot on ATM and I tend to agree with what @Blossom74 said but I am going to add more. The money you mention well holy fruck that is a lot of money. I would be bringing up my wants and needs with DH and not wait much longer. The court stuff could drag on for years. Summer I had an ex who was actually going to court for different matters and I actually left him because our whole life resolved around it. It became the centre of his world and it just never ended. After he lost the assault charge he got civilly charged and It just dragged on for years. I am not saying to leave DH at all but be prepared to put yourself first because if you don't then it is only going to make you feel worse. Yes DH is prob stressed ATM but too bad it is not your problem that he has a biatch of an ex wife. You deserve the chance to be a mother in your own right and DH needs to understand and support you on this. Sorry if anything I write doesn't sit right but I just feel like you seem to be the one who is giving a lot more in this relationship so it is time for you to get something back. Lastly big hugs to you and try to get some sleep x

    I'm so sorry hon, that sucks. I really thought it looked like you were on track for a transfer. Definitely hook into the chocolate and Easter buns, and whatever else you need to get into to get yourself through.

    @Sue77 you have been on my mind a lot lately too. I hope things are progressing with the surrogacy process for you. xx

    THIS. Exactly this @Summer. Yes, your DH's relationship with DSS is important, but so is your need to become a Mother. I see you as such a warm, loving woman and it upsets me greatly that of everything you are having to deal with right now, becoming a Mother has not been on the list of priorities with your DH.

    We all recognise stress around here. Everyone is stressed. But at the end of the day, that's not enough of an excuse for your DH not wanting to support you in this. It's not an excuse for ignoring the issue or hoping it will go away either. I so worry that in your generosity you will continue to put yourself and your needs last, and I would be so devastated for you if in 5 years time you find yourself bitter and resentful with your dreams to become a Mother unfulfilled.

    I KNOW you know all of this. I KNOW you know that time is constantly and quietly slipping away from us all. I really hope that you can get your DH on board with your plans to become a Mother ASAP, because as a man and as a husband who is supposed to love and support you, well frankly... right now he is letting down the team

    Hoping I have again not overstepped the mark. Go gently on yourself hon and get rest where you can, even if it is just having a lie down for half and hour and closing your eyes
