    me too!! I've always totally cringed at the thought of that stuff..uurggghh!
    @Charlie74 I can totally understand your fears and anxiety about tomorrow, that's great that your dp is going with you, I've got everything crossed for you that your lining is fabulous

    @Tahli I hope you are feeling much better in the coming days, surgery knocks you around that's for sure. Glad your family and ex have stepped in to help out. Look after yourself xx

To be honest, ive worked out dates n stuff n if my de cycle works, ive thought about having an "egg celebration party" for Easter :-) I'll prob have to make my own invitations. I dont think you can buy "donor egg party" invites at the shops.
    AFM the sun has come out today in the snowy mountains n its 24 degrees! Im soaking up the vitamin d and contemplating putting on my bikini and jumping in me pool just for the hell of it. Feeling very happy today so im taking my own advice and just letting myself feel what i feel...and today that is happy!
    Hmm. I'm always checking my potential due dates when I'm cycling? Am I the only one that this.


    I was about 32 weeks when We went and bought clothes, I found it really hard to buy clothes, the first time I was on the verge of tears and ended up walking out empty handed.


    Welcome @Jodie

    Interesting conversations today girls and things that I discuss very often with DH often going round in circles. I feel we have also lost the focus of the end goal and a sibling for DD, unfortunately she will never grow up close to a sibling now anyway as she will be at least 6 if we have a second child. Our focus just seems to be cycle after cycle though planning for next steps and how we can change things rather than the delivery of a beautiful bub. Maybe I need to change my mind set which might give me more positivity.
    As for the announcements to the world if we ever get there we are not sure where we will go with that. I definitely would want to be considerate of anyone else going through fertility issues and would hate to upset someone. On the other hand I would love to use an announcement if ever we get to have one to show people even after a hard battle the goal can be achieved. Would also try and get it across to other people how considerate people should be when asking women questions about having children and also presuming how easy ivf is, some people have no idea. Not sure how we would get that across.
    Baby showers have never been my thing to be honest and I find them an 'American' thing. I personally like to buy the gifts for a bub once it has been born so I definitely wont be having one, again thats my personal opinion. My issues are with other people's baby showers, I have always attended them but I am finding it harder and harder. I have 5 friends and family members all expecting babies over the next month or so its been difficult. I went to a family baby shower a few weeks ago which was pretty low key and managed ok. I have been invited to more of a full on one next week though with games and full on gifts ect but its the day I plan on poas and I have decided its just too much for me on that day so have protected myself and made my apologies.

    Thanks for those ladies that have asked about me today and how my tww is going. I initially had a few cramps but I know that can all be put down to the truck load of progesterone I am on and to be honest even that has stopped today. So not really feeling it to be honest at the moment and I am now 6dp5dt and we even had the discusion of next steps today and where we might go from here. Just had my last pregnyl booster tonight and don't plan on poas until next Sunday just to prepare myself.
    @Arianasmum - How is your tww hun x

    Thank you for checking on me.. 1 week down...1 more to go till I find out...
    I have been experiencing sore boobs and mild cramping. Yesterday I suddenly had frequent peeing ..but then today is normal again..feeling queezy but not that bad..slightly lightheaded. I also noticed that my nipple slightly darker...This morning I had the last 1500 pregnyl injection. Does anyone know what pregnyl does? I am thinking all I'm feeling now is caused but pregnyl. My BT is on Monday 22 August, not planning to POAS..i have been telling myself to accept whatever result ... And be brave.. @Heyside thinking of you.. Hope you are doing ok with tww

    @Charlie74 so glad your friend did not change after becoming pregnant and continued to support you in your journey, it was really heartwarming post of a great friend.
    @Maxwellsmum I totally get where your coming from and congrats having a year off from work, do you plan to go back pregnant?

    Hi all... interesting conversation about the baby showers. I am thankful that apart from work people, none of my friends have had baby showers lately, I spent my twenties going to those! As for me, if I get pregnant I am having one with decorations and games and cakes and everything I've just been waiting so long for my turn... Also, my mum has been planning shower games for years.

    I am finally triggering tonight, and EPU on Tuesday. I am happy to be proceeding and have fingers crossed I will get a decent amount of good eggs, and a fresh transfer.

    Good luck to everyone where ever they are up to
