    Hi Jane,

    Not sure really what it say. It is so hard. Just know that you can write whatever comes into your head, we understand.

    So frustrating with the added pressure of the extra cost that is involved. I really hope that the government will delay the increase. It still has to be passed doesn't it so it's not certain yet???? Is it?

    Have a good time in Darwin. It will be good to get way.

    Take care of yourself and look after your husband.

    have a great time in Darwin Jane.

    I am so p***ed off today also, firstly I think I am starting AF which means the IUI hasnt worked again, so now we have to go see the FS on Tuesday and sign all the IVF papers, but even worse timing I just opened my emails and my dad said that my cousin is pregnant, she is not married and wasnt even trying, where the f**k is the justice in that.
    We have already spent so much money and now its just going to escalate even more with IVF, its just so not fair on so many levels.
    Sorry for ranting, just need to get it out...

    Oh Zimby, I am so sorry to hear it. Chocolate always help.
    I also had a bit of a moment yesterday ranting about women who fall pregnant when they are not trying and who don't want the kids and all that stuff. It IS NOT fair I agree with you. The only thing That gives me comfort is that our children when they eventually decide to turn up, will know just how much they were wanted and how much effort went into thier arrival. We are all very strong women and as much as this whole process sucks I think in the end it will make us better parents. We won't take them for granted!
    My advise..... Have a really good cry, punch something, eat some chocolate, get really ****ed with some girlfriends, then wake up and face another day. All except the last are easy and fun. The last shows us what we are made of.

    thanks Jane, its good to know I can let it out on here. Yes I agree its just not fair, and I know life isnt fair blah blah blah but it still hurts and sometimes I just find it hard to deal with. I ended up eating 10 chocolate bars and some jelly yesterday, not good! I would love to think that one day we will have children but I have to say i'm losing hope and i'm almost at the point of giving up. We have decided to do an absolute maximum or 2-3 IVF cycles and then thats it, we get over it and move on with life. Our life has been on hold for too long and we just need to take some control back. And to be honest if it dosnt work after 3 times I dont think its going to work, I know other people have done like 8 cycles and it finally works, but we are not prepared to put ourselves through another few years of this process and spend all our savings at the same time, I think for me I would end up broke and bitter so its not worth it, what kind of parent would I be in that state, not a very good one. At least if me and DH decide to stop then we are in control of the situation and we can move on without wasting any more precious years of our lives, however we can say we tried and we did all we could at the time. We can now see a light at the end, either way if I get pregant or not, we know this will end in the next few months one way or another and we can start planning for our futures once more. Phew!

    yep thats what ****s me the most also like being on hold waiting and waiting and all the bull**** you go through with no control

    also how many times do you hear that its when people have stopped that they have become pregnant but stopping also seems so hard

    Hi Zimby,

    I can understand what you are saying. Half the frustration is feeling like you are not in control. 3 rounds of IVF has a fair % of sucess so I spose this new method is a new path. If there is a chance, then we need to try and be positive.

    I'm in 2ww but I feel really positive this time. Not sure why. If it doesn't happen then I will be devistated because the have to back to FS.

    thanks so much everyone

    overitand36 I know what you mean, stopping is hard, and even if we do stop trying, its hard not to automatically know the dates of your cycle etc, I know my body so well now that it would be hard to not think about it, although I hope in time it would get easier.

    michelle70 yeah I agree we have to remain postive, I am feeling better today, I just bough a good book on IVF so I will get reading that and see how I feel.

    has anyone gone down the Natural Therapies path, I went back to a regular GP yesterday to get a new referral for the IVF clinic as mine had expired (apparently they expire after 12months) and I saw this new doctor who happened to be chinese, he gave me the referall but also asked me whether I wanted to do this special blood test which tests for all levels in your blood, eg, manganese, zinc, selenuim etc etc he said if they find a deficiency all you need to do is take some natural supplements and it will regulate and balance my body. What do you think? Has anyone done this?

    Also I was meaning to ask does anyone who is taking Clomid, get really heavy periods, I have been taking Clomid for 2 months and I got AF yesterday and sorry for the too much info but it is the heaviest AF I have ever had. Freaking out bout that too.

    oopps this was very long...................

    HI Zimby,

    Yes, on clomid and yes I get heavy periods for the first 3 days and then it gets lighter. My thinking behind getting heavier periods was that I'm not sure if I was producing an ovulatory cycle but I am on clomid so that was the reason that it is heavier. The nurse said that one side effect of clomid was less cervical mucus. Not sure if you have noticed that but apparently that is normal.
