I like this thinking!
P.S. I just had to add, totally dont know what date it is, as a teacher all i ever know is things like its week 3, term 3, day 2 today and as sn ivf-er, i know its day 14 of my cycle (lucky DH!). Anyway, just realised its august, so i can say im going to athens next month (still 7 weeks until i go) but i like the sound of 'next month' much better. Except that now ive realised that its 'next month', im getting anxious (@Billie2 - im a total hypocrite).
Oh and, if anyone ever had to get partner to do cystic fibrosis blood test, any idea how long it takes to get results back? My hubby did the test 7 weeks ago to the day. My clinic can confirm bloods were sent off but no results back. Lovely receptionist said she would chase it up for me (lovely considering i havent paid them a cent and im not even really a patient there anymore!) But do you think i should try and chase it up myself too? Just wond er ing if 7 weeks is normal time frame for this test. I know it takes a while but...?
How may cycles have you done? You need to have some faith in what your FS is saying and if you don't, I'd look at finding another one. They want you to have success as at the end of the day its a business so they want good figures for pregnancies/live birth rates
Yep @gorgeousgeorge that was me. New Foxtel box is now in situ! Add to lastnight's fire, vomiting and diarrhoea I had to take 4 y/o DS for blood tests today. Emla patch went on one hour prior amongst major tantrum, the first pathology place was an epic and traumatic fail with one woman who was a total b*tch, so onto our local hospital where they have amazing ladies to draw children's blood. They were angels. It took 3 of us to physically restrain him. I'm sporting two pretty painful bite marks. Mummy got a bandaid too. Another 2 weeks til the next lot of bloods. Boo.
The local hospital (private) just happens to be the one I wanted to give birth in and the reason I took out PHI. Sure enough we passed a brand new bub and mum in the corridor. I had to bite back the tears. It was like a lightening bolt through my heart. I'll be using my PHI to have a hernia op there next Thursday instead.
My disaster of a cycle continues I am afraid. I only got 9 eggs from 25 follicles and I know I only need one good one but with my usual huge drop off it doesn't look good. To top it off my meds weren't sent to the hospital so Dh had to run down to Warren's room for scripts and sort it at the chemist only to bring it back to the hospital and its all wrong.
Still at the hospital having intralipids its going to a long day I think.
@Tahli yep he'll do a scan. Awe poor little boy, and poor you so stressful for you both!
