    Sunny how did your appointment go?

    Otgirl, congrats on being PUPO I hope this is the one for you

    LillBirdy - I always feel fine after EPU, never even feel like I have had anything done lol. But in saying that I only ever get one or two eggs, I know a lot of other ladies who feel like c!$% afterwards. I hope you are okay

    sooz........wow WOW wow WOW

    oh I am so happy for you, I have tears in my eyes...we need more happy news and BFPs.... wow to get a BFP that early is a good sign.
    I hope you can wait the weekend out...it will be so long.... stunned disbelief that was me and still is....I cant believe so much has gone on for me the last 10 days.... still not really believing I am preggers yet...
    hugs hugs of happyness for you....

    KittyM...how frustrating that you had to cancel a cycle... grrrrr that would just do my head in. Sounds like you FS has a plan for you, I hope that it works this time.... at least you are feeling better, sounds like the cycle was just not quite right anyway...
    WOW 7 weeks annual leave...Im very jealous...the only time I have had off in 2 years is for IVF egg pickup..sigh.... must look into having a bit more off.....keep us updated as to your next cycle.

    lilbirdy.... good luck for you egg pickup.I hope that you have an easy time of it and get lots of great eggs.
    I too had 21 eggs at the last pick up and a little bit of OHSS... I think what really helped was staying at home for the next 2 days and doing nothing but drink and pee to clear all the toxins as well as eat protein meals 3 x day.
    I never have any problems post EPU, and just feel a little tired from the anaesthetic. although my first one I had a lot of nausea and cramps but the other 2 were a breeze...
    cant wait to hear from you.

    sunny.... hanging out to see how your FS appointment goes, I hope you get everything you want from it. good luck for you....

    otgirl...hang in there in the 2ww...stay on the insane train and wear that straight jacket when you need it.... lilbirdy will be joining you soon

    goldy...how are you hanging in there??? fingers crossed when is the beta due??

    Soclose...how are you going with sorting out your next cycle?? I hope that your FS is going to approach you much more aggressively..

    cillie..fit and fertile thats your new motto... I hope that you have some good direction for you next cycle...you have a lot of decisions to make

    Lilly40.... I hope you are going along well. What is happening with your next cycle?? how are the plans going... moving forward I hope.


    AFM
    well I slept well last night...bliss ...more weird dreams of course...lol..

    Im getting hunger/nausea type feelings before breakie and lunch which settle when I eat...so thats a good sign...lol.... really tired too...
    I still cant believe that I am pregnant. just not really ready to unguard my heart yet.

    I did more internet research last night and found a study that looked at progesterone levels in IVF at day14 post ER, and they found that a level >430 had an 80-85% chance of viabilty compared to lower levels... I so like that (mine was 805) and Im hoping that I wont be one of the 15%.

    Hanging out for my uss this afternoon.... at 5w6d... it will give me an idea as to if it was a delayed implantation and if the bean is growing well...if I am extremely lucky I might get a heartbeat.... so Im both nervous and excited.....

    I have to start thinking about the food side of things as well... the downside of not really thinking you are preggers is you forget about the food restrictions...I think Ham and runny eggs are going to be my main restrictions....lol..that I will miss the most...sigh. but well worth it.

    Im planning a very quiet day today, I have to drive back to work for a farewell dinner and uss this afternoon but I wiil come back after after all I need that lovely sleep..lol....
    after my 2 weeks of anxiety, worry stress, travel to sydney and back, hard courses I am so ready not to move off the couch for today... me and blankie are becoming firm buddies.....lol......

    if I missed anyone I apologise

    I hope everyone has a good thursday...
    xxxxxx

    Micca, so so excited for you. You must be soo happy but yes I can imagine still hasn't sunk in yet lol. I reckon it would takes me weeks before I got my head around it.

    I am thrilled with all our BFP's, gives us all hope

    Micca I am going to take your advice re; the wheat, thank you so much for that.

    My level was 21 grrrr but in saying that still not overly happy with FS. So I will do this cycle with them (I have had the drugs at home for months now lol) but if he doesn't give me any hope I will flick him!

    Hope you are having a nice day at work Lilly

    Sooz – That is such excellent news, well done……only 4 more sleeps to BT…..do what you need to do for you to get through the next couple of days. Im sending all my good vibes your way and will still keep up the visualising.

    Lilbirdy – How did your EPU go today? How are you feeling?

    Micca – Its so good to hear that your numbers are just getting better and better….thats so cool. How did your scan go today?

    Cillile – Please, never stress out over egg numbers…..I did and it just added something else to worry about and negativity around me....never ever compare. Keep saying to yourself that it is always quality over quantity…..and we all know that it only takes one.

    Soclose and KittyM – My heart goes out to you……cancelled cycles and waiting is a horrible thing to go through. I so know what you are going through….it sucks and I hate it. I am now trying to turn my thought process into thinking that even though I may not be cycling/stimming, Im still on the IVF train, as I am still currently building eggs/follicles in readiness for stimming……that’s why I am doing this healthy mind and body thing, to give my developing eggs/follicles every chance of being good quality.....hopefully.

    Otgirl and Goldy – How is the 2WW going…..here’s hoping that it is your turn for a BFP.

    AFM
    Thanks everyone for the well wishes for my appointment.

    My appointment went well with the ‘fill-in’ FS, while my FS was away. As well as getting answers to my little issue, I also took the opportunity to get a second opinion on my IVF protocol from the FS…..he was very happy with the protocol that my normal FS has me on for my next cycle…in fact, he said it is quite successful with older ladies. He also said that he will now keep an eye on my case (he has just moved to our city), due to me being 45 and he wants to ensure that everything that can be done, is done, so I get that little bubba. I am extremely thankful for the little bit of extra attention, especially as he has so much experience in the field of IVF…..he has been working in IVF since the 80’s and worked with the specialist that had the first Australian IVF baby…..given that, Im not going to knock his offer back!!!

    So, I have an endometrial cyst that needs to be cut out…..he said that I could go on the pill for 3 or 4 months then see if it is ‘flushed’ out when I stop taking the pill. It doesn’t always work and FS said that at my age, I don’t have 3 or 4 months to wait. So FS would like to see it cut out as soon as possible (will hopefully find out a date in a follow up appointment on Monday), as FS wants me back cycling immediately. It also may be a case of waiting for AF before they can do the hysteroscopy. FS has said that I can restart taking my DHEA straight away whilst waiting. Didn’t have to ask me twice…..I was back taking the DHEA this morning!!!!

    In my diagnosis, it says ‘endometrial cyst of long standing’……when I asked how long is ‘long standing’, they cannot say. Im still at a loss as to why/how it was not picked up in all the multitude of ultrasounds, but ????…..I have to move on!!!

    FS says the cyst could have been the reason for non-implantation, but we will never know, as you are all aware there is so many other factors that play a part in conceiving. So FS says ‘lets get your womb a happy healthy place for your next embryo/s’. Happy with that!

    I am glad that I have a plan of sorts, but will feel better if/when I have a date for the hysteroscopy.

    Bye for now.

    sooz, how exciting for you, for your BT monday and it confirms that news !!! Think the best thing you can do for your little embie is relax and try to enjoy the weekend, treat yourself to something nice ahead of the hopeful confirmation.

    micca, how did your uss go ????

    sunny, wow, that's alot to take in, but glad your appt went well - it sounds like the removal asap of the cyst is def the best option. I hope you can get a date for the hysteroscopy really soon.

    to everyone else, hope your healthy and doing ok.

    AFM, am currently cuddling my puppydog on the lounge, he's great company to recuperate from EPU - albeit he's a 30kg labrador ! First EPU was fine, felt a bit of pain but the sedation was good, actually felt really relaxed during the recovery. They got 22 eggs. I'm a bit confused though because I asked the scientist if it was eggs or follies and he said eggs. Of course, I know all of the those won't be mature, but I am stoked at the numbers and when he looked at my age on my records, he did a double take. He said DH is a 'stud' in terms of his swimmers, so I am feeling really optimistic about the fertilisation but of course I am taking one step at a time. DH keeps telling me we are 'guaranteed' - I'm not sure he quite understands why I'm being so cautious, despite the good numbers so far. Anyway, everything crossed for some good news from clinic tomorrow and transfer Saturday. I feel a really lucky woman at this point in time, for a whole heap of reasons.

    Hi all

    Just a quick one tonight. Sorry no time for personals. I am in Tassie for a few days with my folks who don't know about the IVF (Mum's got cancer and I don't want to her her hopes up) so I probably won't be on again until Monday. Good luck with everything everyone is going through at the moment.

    Sooz - What hopeful news. Absolutely marvellous.

    Thank you for support re: egg numbers and suggestions for supplements and getting healthy. I appreciate the support. It is a very different from the disappointing counselling session I went to with DP yesterday. It was like two guys bonding over statistics and solving a problem. (DP is a numerical modeller - predicts events based on mechanics and mathematical models). I had arranged the counselling to talk about improving communication and supporting each other through IVF and the dreaded BFNs so I was very disappointed.

    They decided we wanted to go with the best chance of success- donor eggs. I do too with my head, especially since we are going to find it really difficult to put together funds for another attempt, but damm it is disappointing. Was quite upset by the counsellor who pretty much denied there was much effect from the hormones and the treatment process which contributes to emotional reaction to BFNs. What?? I'm fraying at the edges way before I get to the BFN everytime.

    Plan to talk with sister (14 years younger) about possibility of being an egg donor for us. According to the guys, it's not much to ask, she'd love to do it and there is no way she'd say no. I think it is very different doing something difficult because you love someone to loving to do something.

    I've definately gone vetern IVF Barbie, sorry. Best be off before the vibes taint.

    Take care all.

    Lilbirdy, you should feel very lucky - 22 eggs is magnificent! So lucky that DH has great swimmers too – that’s fantastic. Celebrate every win and wonderful bit of news you get have. I think it’s really important to enjoy all the wins along the way. It helps keep you positive when you hit some bumps. Look forward to hearing your update.

    Micca, so excited for you – such wonderful numbers and busting to hear how your uss went today …. or are you already too glued to that couch.

    Sunny, wow – like the sound of your fill in FS, that’s great that he is showing so much interest in your case and has so much experience. Hope they get you in real soon to get that stinkin cyst out the way; then you can get on with really focusing on some heavy duty visualization of healthy follies, embryos and bub for yourself!
    Just curious - what protocol are you on?

    SoClose, good on you for staying positive despite your set backs. Nothing wrong with seeking out a new FS – most importantly you have to be happy and it’s really important to get more than one opinion.

    Minibar, thanks so much for popping in and saying hi. Hope all’s going well for you.

    Otgirl, hope you’ve managed to sort that infection. How are you managing the beginning of your 2ww? I hope it races on by for you.

    AFM – crampy tummy, but I’ve read that that’s a good thing. I'm just hanging out to give another HPT test a run tomorrow. I bought a couple of different brands just in case the one I used this morning gave me a false positive. I am now a HPT addict. HPTs are now like Pringles to me “once you pop (test), you can’t stop”.

    Time to pump some zzzzzz’s. – been pretty weary the last few days.

    Hugs to all Sooz xo

    Lillibirdy... great news on the eggs cant wait to hear your fert alert tomorrow...

    Sooz...keep on POAS...lol..enjoy seeing those 2 lines...

    Sunny...sounds like the FS was pretty good and positive fantastic especially when he understands the tic tock of our body clocks...implantation often increases after a hysteroscopy as well...

    cilllie... what a big decision you have to make. But you are so lucky to have a younger sister.... I hope that you can come to terms with it all.

    AFM
    ok well the uss is done and all was good.

    the dates are pretty right 5w 5-6 days.
    there was a yolk sac and a little flickering heartbeat...too early to count though....

    Im quite relieved to see the heart beat and a yolk sack with the little alien in it....... and my sonographer friend said she is happy to scan me as much as I like....got to love her...theres a few jars of chutney waiting for her... this next 2 weeks the bean quadruples its size from a grain of rice to a cherry.... so lots of changes....my boobs have suddenly popped out and are getting rather large...might have to look for a new bra next week.... pity there is no one to fondle them..sigh

    So its good news...I feel less anxious and the risks for miscarriage drop as we get farther along....still not ready to guard my heart and ride the preggers train yet...

    So next beta tues and next USS tues (formal heartbeat one) ..then off to melbourne for a conference and some squeezed in shopping on thursday....busy busy.
    time is certainly flying......

    I've some morning sickness creeping in...usually when I need to eat...I hope it does not get worse....but Im sure it will....lol..lol..lol....

    so back home now... love those long drives... snuggled in bed about to go to sleep....
    cheers....xxx
