And i have a 'muffin top store' t shirt which has the shops logo and 'top of the muffin to you!' written on it from this cool website that makes fake advertisement t shirts for tv show related items. Oh, and i made my best mate named bobby, who also loves seinfeld a macaroni-bobby statue for his birthday, like kramer made for jerry and bette midler. I was making it out of pasta and super glue and was at a tricky stage, had my hands full, so i was used my mouth to unscrew the lid from the super glue. Except the lid was already off the superglue so when i bit down on the tube, superglue flowed into my mouth. I ran to the sink to spit it out and briefly considered whether i should gargle acetone nail polish remover. But decided that was even stupider than biting down on a tube of super glue. Luckily i didnt glue my lips and tongue to my teeth but i couldnt actually get dental floss to slide between my front teeth for about a month. I am not making this s h i t up.

    I know I'm late to the party but the one thing (ok two) that I wish I could tell myself four years ago was to read Dr Beer's book - is my body baby friendly. It explained auto immune issues and how it can affect fertility, which led me to get testing and Dr Matthias.

    The second thing is to do pgd testing on any day 5 embies before transferring - I could have saved so much $$ and heartache. Good looking blastocysts might still be abnormal.

    Good luck xx

    Hi all, I'm new to this thread and even though I'm not 40 yet, I hope I can still post here.
    I have a history of recurrent miscarriages (5) with no live births. One of these was via IVF and it was a PGDed embryo. I've since has further testing via Dr Braverman in the US which revealed some immune issues. I'm currently cycling with Monash in Melbourne and my EPU is in Thursday.
    Just wanted to ask if any of you here have had counselling from Monash and what was your experience? Did your DP/DH also go along? I'm at breaking point at the moment (it's probably all the injections) but I was going well so far. Do you know if I can speak to someone over the phone before I do something silly? I'll call Monash in the morning to check anyway. I was going so strong until now. Hating all this as its just not me!

    @Mongol I haven't been to any counselling at Monash but I do know they offer it. It might not be as quick as you need it though. I would recommend getting into your gp first thing this morning and asking for a mental health plan. This means you can go see a host of psychologists at a discounted price. Your gp might even be able to recommend someone who has some experience surrounding infertility or you can ask the receptionists at any of the psychologists you call if they have anyone with infertility experience. It really is such a hard and sad time to be going through all this especially if you're alone. There's no shame in calling out for help whether it be on here or by seeing a psychologist to help you get through it. Please check in with us after you've made some calls this morning. We're always here xox

    @Mongol please take care, @Caesardust advice is good, I agree to go and see your gp this morning, tell them it's urgent if they can't fit you in as it sounds like you need to talk to someone ASAP. We are all here so come in anytime and vent if you need to. It's a really hard road and we all understand. Thinking of you X

    I dont drink much these days actually over the past 5 years i drink very little. When not cycling i would have a drink about once a month. I don't mind a glass of bubbles or a nice glass of wine. Often i just go out and have a nice non alcoholic drink. My local wine cellar where im.off tonight for book club does a nice hops beer with no alcohol its great.

    Hello Mongol and Welcome to the thread Luv


    I'm so sorry to hear of your past MC's

    Now that you've gotten to the bottom of it with Dr Braverman and are being treated for your Immune Issues your next embryo (which I assume is also a PGD tested one) will stick this time for you Luv

    I agree with the other Girls about going to your GP and getting yourself a Mental Health Plan sorted. You can call and set up an appointment with a Psychologist of your choice beforehand though, so long as you have the MHP by the time you go to your appointment then that's fine.

    I've also found some counsellors that specialise in infertility/IVF (just in case Monash can't get you in for an emergency appointment with their counsellors):

    http://access.org.au/?p=1404


    Hopefully some of them are close to where you live Luv and might be able to fit you in for an emergency appointment

    Other than that, you've got Lifeline (13114) or Beyond Blue (1300 224636) and us here on the thread of course Luv

    I'm glad you've reached out and asked for help. Keep reaching out ok??? You can and will get through this
