    @Charlie74 yes, I've felt like this too and am feeling it a bit now. like the universe has given us plenty of signs with the failures, though the positive parts have given me/us hope too. I guess the next part is deciding on/proceeding with the DE or stopping. I hope your lining problem will be overcome soon

    @Maxwellsmum, @Gagini. @CAErsurdust I'm with Monash Qld but because i'm in Victoria i don't really have a lot of contact with the clinic.
    They have sent my pack down and it should arrive Tuesday - when i start with the info on the injections but i dont have the details yet.
    I have been really up and down about doing the cycle at all this time...maybe after a long break it is harder to get the courage up, knowing whats ahead.
    But the thought of not trying hard enough convinces me in the end.
    @tuxcat good luck with your ED journey - is that in Australia ?
    Thanks @winsor

    Has anyone else found it difficult to talk to friends about the process ? I find that people don't really know what to say so they don't really want to talk about it.

    You can talk to us luv 😊 The average person I know doesn't know what to say. Actually I don't really talk about it or bring it up much. I don't have many friends IRL. I have a few aquaintances but not friends as such. Most of the ones I had I don't speak to anymore they just sort of had their families and are kept busy with them plus they moved on joined mummy groups all that jazz. I guess you lose things in common as well when they have babies/toddlers and your still TTC. The few friends I had used to ask me back at cycle 1 and 2 but now at cycle 9 no one likes to say anything much including me. I cycle remotely as well but through QFG. I'd be ringing Monash tomorrow morning and getting scan and bloods info of them.

    Thanks @Maxwellsmum is that with DrWazza ?
    I'm doing this last cycle with Monash and am on the waiting list for him.
    I have the scan form but that's it until the package arrives.
    I made the decision to go ahead very late so that's why the timing is tight.

    I feel a bit funny about the whole thing because i havent even spoken to Kee for a year, but i'm guessing because we've done it all before they aren't bothered.
    Sometimes i feel like its a bit of a money machine for them, rather than feeling like a patient they are invested in helping.

    @amie999 thanks yes we are looking for a local donor through egg donation australia. It was actually quite nice to talk to people today who know EXACTLY what you are talking about, I don't think Ive ever been in that situation before IRL. Someone actually said "BFP" and I laughed as Ive never actually heard it said! I do have a couple of friends that I talk about it with, they never ask me about it all so I don't feel any pressure to talk, I just bring it up if I feel like it. Its great. Some of my other friends who I don't see that often I feel like its such a big thing in their lives having kids that it makes me feel like they think its all that matters. Those friends i don't discuss it with or try not to see them very much! Yeah, we are the best ones to talk it through with!

    Yeah I am with Wazza. You will love him. He is worth the wait. The man is a saint 😇 I waited 9 months to get into him as well. Now he can't get rid of me. There is a few of on here who have used or are using him.

    I used Monash Rockhampton with my very first cycles here in Townsville. I didn't like them much. At the time the ladies on the phone were a bit pushy. After my second cycle failed they called me to tell me and were like sorry it's a negative, do we book you in for another cycle now and send you the invoice for it, plus the embryo storage fees all on the same call. I was like whoa wait slow down let me cry, scream and get drunk at my own pity party first. 😭

    I chose not to talk about IVF with all but my closest friends. Even then I just mentioned that we were going to start and didn't go into the details. I didn't want to put any more pressure on the process by having people ask how we were doing. It turns out I was right. No-one knows about the 6 cycles or how many eggs we got that were duds. I only mentioned the chemical pregnancy months after it happened.
    As you gilrs have said: no-one knows what to say. And when they do say something it's generally not helpful.

    Thanks for asking @Caesardust, I'm doing ok. Still reading along.. Everything 'baby' seems a little foreign to me right now I have to say... I know I've said this before, but I feel like my lining is going to be my Achilles heel & will stop us from ever having a child, either OE or DE. I can't get that thought out of my head.

    Do any of you ever Just feel like even though you want it so badly, maybe u should just accept that it's too late? That u missed that boat and u should just accept it? That's how I'm feeling lately.
    @Tahli if ur reading along, and if ur 6mths in a holding pattern is out of ur own control, then I understand how ur probably feeling luv. It's really really difficult to stay positive or hopeful when you have to wait 6 mths, especially at this age. I feel like I'm in limbo. If u want to chat I'm here X
    @Charlie74, I completely understand how you're feeling. I'm nowhere near as brave as you girls, I've only done two cycles with Genea in Sydney at the end of last year, both were BFNs and it was devastating. I've recently turned 44 and I wonder do I even try again? I desperately want children (being the eldest of 6 you just assume it will happen) but at the same time I think perhaps it's now too late. Infertility is a long lonely road and my friends and family moved in different directions because they had kids and I didn't. It's everyone's personal choice about timing and when to stop, I worry I will regret not having another go and I hope I can make the right decision soon. Maybe DEs are the only option now because I'm sooo old!!! Then I wonder, do I give Wazza a go but by the time I get in I'll be very close to 45!
    Best of luck to everyone cycling, it's exciting to follow along with you, I really hope you're successful in becoming Mummas.
    @Tahli, I've been thinking about you a lot. I hope you are feeling better and are beginning to get some clarity about your movements for the next few months. These girls are very much caring about you, it's lovely to have such a warm group of ladies who are on your team. Take care of you xxx
