@Heyside good luck for today Hun. I'll be thinking of you xx
Glad you're back to normal too!
Hi ladies, I’m sorry I’ve been MIA. I’ve been sick and my phone battery needs replacing. (so much so that it’s been unplugged since 6:50 and it died at 7:25.. hm)
I don’t know if I’ve told you guys but we don’t get ADSL at our property but we will either be getting fixed wireless NBN (fingers crossed) or skymuster (satellite NBN) soon so I won’t have to use my phone’s data all the time!!
I finally got my Medicare rebate back today which is exciting because I was wondering how we were going to pay for our transfer. Lol
This time we are keeping it a secret from everyone because I’m sick of my mum telling people that don’t even deserve to know and I’m sick of my FIL asking me how my dud eggs have gone.
I have to keep reminding myself that I don’t HAVE to tell them everything and they can find out when I am finally pregnant.
Only a week or so to go and I finally start my cycle!
Congratulations on being PUPO and on your little frostie! I’m a bit late to the party, how are you feeling? I hope you get a nice surprise soon! xo
Ps. You should try Peggle! I think it’s called Peggle Blast on the Play Store or App Store. Or Mega Run! I always play these games to help me sleep. I also play candy crush soda saga.
I am a huge gamer and absolutely cannot wait until we finally have internet so I can play games online again!
CONGRATULATIONS! Wishing you all the best for your beta results today! Hope your week is going fast. Your fast at home test results sound very promising! xo
I’m the same! I spent like the last half of 2014 staying away from deli meats, alcohol and sashimi just in case I could be pregnant.
I just realised today is your beta! Wishing you the best of luck! xo
Congratulations on your little ones making it to freeze!
I hope you feel better soon and that your tests just get darker! xo
Hi! I am so sorry to hear about your troubles and the cyst you have on your ovary.
I have my fingers and toes crossed that everything goes well for you. xo
Thank you! My doctor told me to take some Nurofen and ask my husband to give me a good massage which seems to be helping. I’m pretty sure I got sick from the waiting room at the clinic though because I came home with a sore throat and am still sick!
YAY! For transferring 2 frosties! How exciting! 6 is my favourite number, hope it’s a lucky number for you!
Glad to hear your spotting has sorted itself out and your lining is nice and thick! Hope everything goes perfectly for transfer next Tuesday! (if your transfer is still next Tuesday!) xo
Oh my goodness the complaint about fortnightly pessaries is so FRUSTRATING! Lol You should let her know that they can be inserted anally which some women find much more comfortable. (my nurse told me this last fortnight) Hahha
Oh my goodness!! Congratulations on all your little embryos! Fingers crossed they keep growing and the slower ones catch up.
Oh no! I'm sorry to hear you've been unwell!
It certainly sounds like you’ve picked something up. So glad that you’re feeling better! xo
Congratulations on all those follies! Sounds really promising!
I’m so sorry to hear of all the pain you’ve been in! I really hope you don’t have to go through it ever again.
I’ve had 2 transfers, the first I didn’t feel anything and it was a surprise when my FS said it was all over and done with and the second one was a tiny bit painful (like a pap smear) I had a bit of cramping afterwards but it wasn’t so bad that I needed to hop into bed or anything.
Wishing you the best of luck with everything! xo
I am so sorry to hear that AF arrived. Sending you the biggest of internet hugs!!
It’s so easy for people who aren’t going through IVF/ infertility to say such insensitive things because they just don’t understand. I don’t know why but seems that it’s entirely impossible for them to understand.
I have ended a relationship due to the selfish nature of a person.
I’m a very empathetic person and I put up with a lot from this person and it just got too much for me.
If this person is frequently causing you heartache and you dread hearing from them then I recommend cutting them from your life. It’s bad for your health to put up with stuff like that all the time and you deserve more than that!
At the very least, you should close yourself up a bit so that she doesn’t know so much about you and only share happy things with her. (unless she is going to one up you or something)
As for family, I have stopped talking to my mother several times but it’s impossible to cut her from my life without cutting my dad from my life and I refuse to do that.
I don’t tell my mother anything anymore and I am much happier because of it.
Besides, I think many of us will be happy to let you have a ‘winge’ or vent. I know I am! xo
Woohoo! Glad your AF finally arrived! Wishing you the best of luck for your cycle! xo
I am so so sorry to hear of your BFN.
I can’t give the exact amount for our IVF cycle but I think it was around $6000 for us including drugs + our health insurance excess for the pickup. Our clinic is cheap though I recall QFG being around 10 grand? It really depends where you go. Some places bulk bill!
For me, this group is all the support I need or more so can handle. I cannot find any IVF support groups or therapists near me and I find social interaction stressful anyway.
I hope you find what you need. xo
Congratulations on being PUPO and on all your frosties!! Wishing you the best of luck and I hope your 2WW goes quickly!
I am so sorry to hear of the troubles you’ve had and for your loss. *hugs*
Congratulations on being PUPO!! Hope your 2WW goes fast and you get a wonderful surprise. xo
Woo! Congratulations on your squinter! Hope it gets darker for you. xo
Phew! I hope I didn't forget anyone! Microsoft word says I took 143 minutes to type all of that! lol
So jealous of all you ladies who had a long weekend. I'm in QLD so didn't get one.

@mrsthomo thanks so much for your message. I love reading your messages as they give me a reminder on what's going on. On that note good luck @julianicholson and @kmvw for your betas today!! Looking forward to hearing some good news hopefully 😁😁😁
I was working yesterday and hubby was home late so I did a quick read through but not a great response.
Your message about shutting out people is so true. I do dread hearing for her and I keep hoping I'll get a nice response back. I texted her for her scan today and she just said thanks fingers crossed...no reference to my beta today (which obviously didn't go ahead...but she doesn't know that). Maybe she will text me later in the week to see how I am. If not I won't be volunteering my negative result. The hard thing is she's my cousin! Argh...family. You can't choose 'em.
Good luck with your mum. I think you're approaching it well. Let them be on a need to know basis.
I'm so excited you'll be starting your cycle soon! You've had a fair break between them so it will be wonderful for you to start. Hoping its your lucky round.
AFM- I have an appointment with my fertility specialist on Friday! They had a cancellation so it saves me waiting until late July! Pretty happy about that.
As I'm about to send this I get a text
"1 baby!!!!" From her.
Feel like saying "no s***, you just dramatize everything! I was always going to be one baby but you had to have a freak out and have all the attention on you!!!!" But no I'll say "congratulations" and quietly cry inside. Haha.
Oh dear, if I don't laugh about it I will cry.
Thanks again for your support ladies. I will continue to read along and be the cheerleader for you all xx
Sorry quick update for me personals later. I asked to see a scientist as soon as we got to the hospital earlier, we were so lucky to be told all was looking good with our frostie and seemed to be expanding which was such a relief. Our fresh embies were not ready for testing yet and we are giving them an extra day to reach blastocyst tomorrow, this doesn't concern me too much as this happened last cycle also hopefully they will improve overnight. Happy to say currently pupo with my pgd frostie xx
@mrsthomo thanks Hun. I'll download those games. Candy crush is driving me insane. lol.
Good idea keeping it a secret. Makes it a bit easier to handle I think.
@Heyside yay! Congratulations on being PUPO! How exciting. Hope it's a sticky and your other embies progress over night.
TMI (sorry!) and crinone question. I'm getting lots more "clumps" of crinone coming out when I wipe ew, however it's tinged brown and light pink is this normal? The gel is white when it's going in. Or is it irritating my cervix?
@Heyside yay for the PUPO and all the best for tomorrow testing on embies.
@hopefull29 I just started crinone this morning and already have exactly the same thing as you, the brown discharge I suppose its from the EPU the wound still healing and normal to have some old blood coming out. I think clumps are normal consider how think the gel is? maybe best to ask your nurse.
@GM9 thanks Hun. It was more the colour that was concerning me. I think I'll too have to do a bit of an internal. 😂😂
@obesebaby thanks Hun. When I first started using it the clumps were white- like the gel but now it's mixed with browny pinky colour. But I'm glad to hear it might be normal. I did think maybe it was from EPU but I would have thought by now (8days post pick up) it would be gone. I'll see how it goes today and if it doesn't improve I'll call my nurses tomorrow.
