    @skeeter congrats on being pupo. What a great result to have some frosties in the fridge for later days.
    @Blossom74 you are so gorgeous with your hair and lovely kind eyes. I don't seem to imagine what people look like but it's so nice to see your faces. I wonder what people think I look like?

    I sent a worried email to my nurse this morning asking her to speak to my FS about my lining and length of my cycle. Apparently she did (I don't know if I believe that) and he said anything over 6 is fine and the length of the cycle is not of concern, proceed ahead. This was all written to a Erica which is not my name. Hmm the old saying you get what you pay for is so so wrong in the ivf world. Anyhoo I'm sat at the airport drinking chai while dp knocks back some beers. Oh how times have changed. I used to travel the world, loving the adventure and partying hard. Now I'm fantasising about a couple of Valium on the plane and a cup of tea.

    Thank you all for your well wishes. It means so much to me to have all your support. My warrior women with me for my journey xoxo

    Bahahaha, it's all smoke and mirrors hon! Lots of makeup, a good photographer, and Oil of Olay moisturiser twice a day for the past 26 years

    I can only put it down to genetics. My sister got wrinkles, I didn't - YET. She got gray hairs, I didn't. It's a huge bone of contention as she is younger than me

    I don't deserve it to be honest - I wash my face with soap, ha ha! No fancy face wash for me

    ETA: I should mention, that was my wedding day, nearly 3 years ago. I was technically 39 then

    That's a fab result hon! Congratulations!

    Following my hernia surgery I'm definately not up for starting his kitchen sink protocol in a few weeks. It would mean having the Hysteroscopy in 2 weeks. Nope, no way, still recovering.
    Any advice welcome.
    Oh yeah, good call, thats the last thing your body needs right after surgery. I have done one, early last year. From my cycle notes I did:
    cd10 bloods
    cd12 bloods & scan
    cd13 bloods
    cd15 bloods
    cd16 bloods - look like ov happened on either 15 or16
    started progesterone pessaries cd18
    transfer cd20
    bloods for progesterone cd22

    hope that helps?

    congrats @LillyM - great numbers. good luck for your fert report.

    congrats on your frosties @skeeter

    have a good flight @Caesardust & best of luck for your transfer if we don't hear from you whilst o/s
    @Tahli I had a natural fet - just some BTs and a scan leading up to natural ov day until they knew the ov day then they put the frostie back in 5 days later (as it was a blast). progesterone (endometrin) a day or two before transfer + afterwards was the only meds. nothing else prior to transfer. good luck

    @skeeter you have smashed it! Well done. Congrats on double PUPO!
    @LillyM DOUBLE FIGURES! Booyah! For little old repeat stimmer, thats a good number. So 5th and the best haul so far. Told you the first 4 were practice runs.
    @Tahli no idea about FET. I have 2 little frosties that I was blessed with and I guess medicated FET will only occur for scheduling reasons to fit in with clinic. I have no problem ovulating on my own.
    @Blossom74 We just bought a new car (which was due to a new bub we are no longer are expecting) and happily traded in our current car as people are time wasters. Hope the van sells asap! One less stress.

    So many ladies dancing upon poas territory.. Sending you all best wishes.. xx

    great news! @LillyM and @skeeter! Sending you both lots of luck in the coming days

    @Charlie74 wow it sounds like a good idea to pass on the info. He sounds like a character. I had my ectopic treated in the chemo ward too as methotrexate is a minute dose if chemo basically. It was very humbling going in and seeing all the people having their treatment. The Dr actually said to me, "I hope I never see you again in the nicest possible way!"

    @Caesardust enjoy the time out on the plane, its good for that I think, uncontactable so you just lie back and watch movies (and take valium). Truckloads of good luck have been sent by your warrior women!! xxx

    @Tahli you're so sweet!

    So remember that emergency gonal f pen I got from QFG the other week when I ran out.
    They said they would just invoice me. I just received the invoice 1 pen = $550. I am fuming I get two from chemist warehouse for $38. This is a clear idea of just how much they rip us off and under value us as clients. I tried to ring them but they close at 3pm so not sure what to do. Hubby says we will just pay it. I have a pen here I could give them now but I know they won't do that either. Money hungry Fruckers. Oh and you know why not wait until my 2ww is over before shocking me like this they just prob want me to fail so I have to pay for more cycles.
