    It sounds like we'll all be fairly close together SurferGalGC and Beckmilamoo!
    We also have just built and moved into a new house, and I've just started a new job so it's been a huge first half of 2016!

    The orgalutran this morning wasn't too bad. Mine was at room temp and while the needle was okay, the solution stung after about 5 seconds for about 15 min.

    @jess8383 I've just started a new job too, makes it so hard to be asking for time off already.. especially when I don't want to say what for just yet!

    Eek, I'm doing my first needle tomorrow night! Do you do it yourself? I'm tying to convince dh but he doesn't seem very keen haha. The nurse suggested icing the area before and after! Might be worth a shot for the orgalutran?

    Ice the area first yes for about 30seconds. It doesn't hurt as much as you would think so. It's pretty fast. If you hit a blood vessel though don't stress you'll have a little bruise but that's it. When you've done it few times it won't even bother you at all. Ogalutran stings a bit more though as the needle is a bit bigger. Good luck girls it's all totally worth it for the end of result

    Welcome! And nice to have a buddy. Do you mind if I ask why you're using donor sperm? Are you single like me?

    I am a bit overwhelmed by the thought of being a single mother, and I certainly didn't plan to do it this way, but unfortunately I feel my hands are tied if I ever want to be a mother. But I have lots of family support so fingers crossed they will help to take some of the pressure off! I know for a fact that they will be more help than my ex ever would be!

    I've never really thought of it as being brave but a few people have mentioned it so that makes me feel kinda cool. Almost like a superhero or something! Ha ha, but I reckon most mothers are super heroes (except those who do nothing and don't give a crap!). Just gotta take it one step at a time. Step one complete for me (this round)!!

    I think it's super brave! I've got my DH to complain to and freak out to and as a support person in general, I couldn't imagine the guts it would take to take on this journey without that. So kudos to you! (And bubbles).

    The family support is awesome though! My family is in awe of the whole process!! It's so new to all of us. They want to come along for all my u/s and appointments and transfers haha. It's kinda cool to be able to share it with them too.

    Have you done your follies u/s yet? Do you know when your egg collection is?
