@Charlie74 Im so sorry you are going through all that, I understand the feelings of happiness for your friend mixed with sadness at your own situation, Ive been there. I think its harder when you know your friend has struggled too, you feel like you shouldn't have any bad feelings about it. I spoke to the psych I saw a few years ago about this and she reassured me by saying that all these feelings are about your situation, not theirs so its rational that you feel that way. So go easy on yourself.
Im sorry your dad is really unwell, I know how hard it is to see your dad get so sick. I hope the Dr is able to help. Take care
@Tahli thanks for your sweet comments, yep textile design. Theres so much great kids wear around and I used to do a lot of cute stuff for kids which was a little heartbreaking but I did always stash a bit away for the day when I WILL need it
Thats interesting about the donors twin, just out of interest how did you know she was a virgin? Do they have to state that info on their profile?
I actually watched this program on netflix yesterday called Twinsters, its about 2 girls who are actually identical twins but were adopted out of Sth Korea as babies separately and never knew they had a twin until one of them (in USA) became a bit of an internet hit and a friend of the other (in France) saw it and thought it was crazy how much they looked alike. So they got in contact and had the tests done and found out they are ID twins. How crazy!!! It was cute
I found going off FB was a good idea when things weren't great with me, it seems to be mainly full of kids these days since thats what everyone else is doing and I know from a couple of friends who are childless not by choice that its upsetting for them too, as well as single friends who struggle with it too. TBH these days I mostly hate it for the trash that people post Its like junk book. I make sure I follow a bunch of creative sites that post inspiring things, or things like the Sydney Observatory that post stuff about astrological stuff going on, it makes it much more enjoyable. Maybe a good suggestion for people to try? Also great photographers that post interesting/beautiful shots of stuff that take you away from the every day drool of looking at other peoples kids
@tuxcat DS has quite a few Smafolk tops. I order them in one big hit from O/S and have them delivered. I'm a sucker for Scandinavian kids clothing!! And some of the Jools Oliver range for Mothercare has been surprising good too. And children's books, ohhh the illustrations, that's my other major weakness!!! Your little one WILL absolutely be able to wear Mummy's designs...and I bet your heart will almost burst open with pride at both of your achievements!!
Yes, they have to state if they are a virgin or not. If they're a twin. What birth control they're on. Etc etc. Of course, it's up to them if they want to be honest or not. Would you like me to send a sample profile to read? If so, just PM me.
Apologies for so many posts this morning. I feel like I'm just catching up on where every-one's at!
@BlondeinBrisvegas or any of the other girls, could you please throw your 2 cents worth in on what meds I should be taking. I've just enjoyed 3 glorious days of no meds. Hallelujah!! But then yesterday got that chronic headache, requiring Codeine. So today I'm being more responsible and figuring my meds out for the interim period between now and starting a new ED cycle (hopefully!)...
Women's multivitamin and 5-MTHF (active form of folic acid)
Should I take:
B6, B12, Vitamin E, Co-Q10
Really not sure about:
Caltrate - it helps offset the side-effects of steroids but I'm not on Pred or Dex right now
Astrix (baby aspirin) - to thin my blood but I don't take Clexane until actively in a cycle so why would I take Astrix now for the same purpose?
Metformin - I'd need to ask Dr M about that one ( @Bongley did you take it when not actively cycling?)

Tahli - not a personal question so no need to bugger off! If this cycle produces no normal embryos that will be it for me ( apart from transferring my two frozen untested embryos which FS reckons are probably abnormal given my other crappy results!). My FS has spoken to me about DE and probably for me I'd consider it if was one of my sisters and since they are 38 and 41 respectively that option is out.
@ECM1981 Right ovary pain might be an endometrioma (basically endometriosis 'caught' inside the ovary that forms a cyst). I had one in my right ovary that caused me pain especially around ovulation. They excised it when I had my laparotomy but they can regrow.
I'm sorry @Charlie74 that must have been really hard to hear. Like @greenlady was saying the other day other peoples success sometimes leaves you feeling like the odd one out. IVF is torture on all sorts of levels from poor responding, to no normal PGD's embies, to a single line on a POAS, or even losing a precious life. It's not that your really upset it worked for them more that you ask yourself 'What's wrong with me that it doesn't work? Why can't it be me that it works for?'. I wish there was a formula we could follow that guaranteed success. I can only offer hugs.
A few cycles back we bought a rattle. That was the first thing we bought. I kept it in my bedside drawer and got it out a lot in the 2ww. It was a BFN that cycle but I still felt it was a welcoming sign for any baby we might have. We bought a crochet rug at a market on the cycle we got the chemical pregnancy but nothing on our last cycle. Mostly because by that stage I was convinced it wouldn't work.
I freely admit I have utterly no psychic abilities.
Happy Easter girls. I am crossing my fingers that this is the last Easter for all of us without a new bub (or one on the way).
