    Talking New to IVF want wanting others to talk to

    Hi. I am new here
    My Name is Caroline but my friends call me Cazz
    My husband and I have been TTC for 8 years and 6 months now, with quite a few bumps on the way.
    The last two and a half years have been filled with Full on TTC attempts both naturally and through ART
    In 2003 we did five unsuccessful cycles of injectable meds. That was pretty hearbreaking as I felt my doctor and the ovulation induction clinic were not listening to me. I took a 6 month break and went to see a naturopath and finally got my cycles on track to what they should be doing so I went back last year. The first round of injectables with IUI was successful but I miscarried at 5 weeks the following two rounds with IUI were unsuccessful and we stopped because we could not handle it any more.
    In december last year we finally decided to give up TTC all together and in January I found myself staring at a BFP. again I miscarried at 5 weeks and was devastated but we took it as a sign that we should not give and again in February I found myself with another BFP. Again we dealt with another m/c at five weeks. Amazingly enough in March it happened again. BFP at 4 weeks m/c at five weeks.
    I wanted to give myself a break from perhaps another pregnancy as I feared that so many cycle after cycle may not be good either so I avoided what I needed to at ovulation time and I thought all was good.........Funnily enough my body decided to really trick me and I spontanoiusly ovulated on CD31 and 14 days later I got a BFP. I knew I was pregnant days befre doing the test.

    On monday I woke up and just knew I was not pregnant any more. I am just waiting for the bleeding to start.

    Back in January I had made an appointment with a new specialist and the appointment was on monday afternoon and after going through my history treatments etc she decided my best path would be IVE and she wants to do it ASAP so has planned it for August. I have to have a HSG a hysteroscopy and a lap before then and then have my IVF consultation at the Royal womens at the end of July!

    A whole lot of information to take in all at once but I am finally glad to be heading in aposative direction.

    I had never heard of this site before and am a regular poster on a big American based Site.

    I am hoping to find other Aussies to talk to about all of this.

    I am sorry this was so long....I am sure I could have made is much longer too. hopefully I have not bored anyone.

    I am really hoping to get to know other women in Australia and hopefully Victoria and even more hopefully in my area of Berwick that are going through this process. anyone who reads this can feel free to email me any time cnkaeser@hotmail.com

    Default Wishing you success

    Hi Cazz

    What a traumatic time you have had TTC. You and your partner must be very strong people to have coped with everything.

    I hope your dreams for a baby come true soon.

    Default Good luck...

    Hi Cazz

    You really have been through the wringer, haven't you? I am mother to a 9 week old baby conceived through IVF. My husband and I were trying for 2 years before we were referred to a fertility specialist... We had 2 unsuccessful attempts with IUI, and were told IVF (with ICSI) really would be the only option for us. We were incredibly lucky and fell pregnant on our 2nd cycle. Its a rollercoaster ride, but obviously so worth it in the end! I hope it all goes well for you... I'll be sending you positive thoughts...

    Cheers!

    Petster (Miranda)
