    Lilly40 - that is wonderful news Enjoy this special moment. Sounds like a good HCG level but if you are concerned at all ask for another BT to put your mind at rest. Congrats again.

    Lilly40 - Congratulations!! Your levels sound great, but as Jenkie said, if you are worried, another BT will put your mind at ease.

    Mum4nay - I am so sorry your cycle was cancelled. That sucks big time. When do you get to see your FS and work out the next plan? Look after yourself.

    Gardenia - Im so sorry. This process is so very hard and I feel for you. I agree with Otgirl.....grieve with DH and grieve by yourself. Get it all out (as much as you can anyway)....cry, cry ,cry and get angry at the world....have a debaucherous weekend and eat and drink everything that we are not supposed to whilst IVFing!!! Come out the other side and then start thinking about whether to try again or leave it be....thinking of you.

    Mum4Nay - Im so sorry for you also. I so know what you are going through at the moment......a cancelled cycle hurts. Its like 'I just want a fighting chance to get a positive or a negative but the chance is taken away'. Big hugs for you.

    Lilly40 - Yes, some fabulous news. Congratulations.....you have waited quite some time for this.....enjoy. Im determined to follow in your footsteps soon. Yay for you.

    Default Thank you

    Hi everyone,

    I am overwhelmed by the kind words. I have been reading the posts and to the lady Gardenia - please don't make a decision right now. You are very distressed right now (and rightly so) but if I have learnt anything from my own experiences I would say that you will make the right decision about your future with your DH when you are strong enough to do so. Funny, at our age, so they say, we don't have the time to think things through. Each cycle can end up taking many months if you include the physical and mental recovery. My FS asked me about my stress when I went to see him (given what happened with Oliver and Billie) and he did make the comment that no scientific study had proven that stress made chances of falling less likely. However, we as mums, mums to be or women in general know deep down of course it plays a part. But, what I tell myself is that it doesn't really matter if your stress is because of bereavement, work, relationships, or whatever, we can and do deal with it because HOPE is stronger. I have hope that I will be able to be blessed with another baby (billie's potential brother or sister) and during the process of trying to get there I have a will to live. If, after everything I don't succeed with the 4 icebabies I can at least know I left no stone unturned.

    All of you have demonstrated to me, in the few posts I have read, that I am not alone in my grief, hope and longing and of course optimism until proven otherwise.

    I look forward to hearing more about your successes because for each one I see it gives me a sense of achievement. For those of you who have just found out you are +ive, I am so very happy for you. It's amazing.

    Gardenia - it sucks the big one lovie. I hope you get well and truly P#$^ed and have a good wail but as Billie says dont make any decision tonight. Tomorrow is another day. Lots of hugs to you and DH (and your little one who watched you cry today!!).

    Lilly40 - you go girl. That HCG is awesome. You've given me inspiration to be a bit more positive about this cycle. Well done and congrats to you and your DH.

    Billie - welcome to our thread. Your story brought tears to my eyes and made me realise how truly amazing we all are to keep on this really hard journey!! I wish you the best of luck with your 4 little bubsicles.

    Mum4Nay - that sucks too!! Im sorry this cycle was cancelled. I reckon this is so friggin hard so that when it happens it's even sweeter. Hugs to you!!!!

    AFM - tryng to be as "normal" as possible in this TWW. Went crazy last time trying to "do the right thing" (resting for days after ET, not overdoing it etc etc). This time Ive decided that Im doing all the normal things I did before I was PUPO because you know what it didnt make an iota of a difference last time. Mind you Im not going crazy and doing marathons ar anything but just doing all the normal things. Im hoping that if I dont overthink everything then maybe the BFP will be all the more sweet and if it's a BFN then maybe it wont be so devastating (hmmm that might not be right but it's my theory and Im sticking to it ).

    gardinea.... Im so sorry to hear that it did not work..after all the hope and joy that you had to have it shattered in one foul swoop is just a terrible day for you.
    take the time to grieve and sort your emotions and heal your soul.

    lots of love.xxxxxxx

    lily...woohoo
    thats a fabulous beta... my one at 17dpo was 89...just to give you an idea of how solid yours is...
    mmmm I wonder if that means there are twins in there??? eek..!!
    congrats and its lovely we have such a great BFP..especially on such a bittersweet day.
    welcome back on the train to loopyloo as you now have a 2ww to the ultrasound...

    Mum.
    .....big hugs to you, bugger bugger bugger... about the cycle being cancelled... I guess that the recipe was not quite right, lets hope that they try a different one your next cycle and have success...fingers crossed for you

    billie....welcome to the thread... your story is certainly heartbreaking but it shows what a strong women you are and you certainly do have a lot of love to give. lets hope that the time is right for a little soul to become your baby....

    TRH...hows the loopyville express going?? are you wearing the straight jacket 24/7...remember step away from the EVIL hpts...
    its your turn for a bfp next,

    minibar
    ...congrats on the birth of your daughter...it really seems like yesterday when you were stressing in the 2ww ..


    sunny, jen, jenkie,otgirl...I hope you are all good...

    welll I plod along... work and rest. Ive had the most hideous cold for the last 5 days...I spent all my days off in bed feeling pretty sh1tty...Im hoping it will slowly improve..
    often Im too tired to post but know that I follow all of you ....the nice thing is that the IVF process is a bit like labour...once you are pregnant you really seem to forget all the trials and pain of IVF...

    remember my future yummie mummies keep your eye on the prize at 40+ we have to be driven and obsessed for this to work. I look back in wonder that my cycle worked only after 3 goes and 41.5yrold eggs... but I was the amazon women obsessed... we can do it whether it takes 1 or 10 cycles it will work..

    Now you are all the amazonian warriors of the world. only the strong and brave can follow this path.... feel proud that you are able to do this and that all the trials and tragedy will make you the worlds most lovely fabulous parents to your babies whom will be loved their entire lives.
    Forget the fertile murtles and callous comments of the unthinking, just remember you are all a member of a fabulous club of very special women that is one of the most exclusive in the world. Where ever you go you will always have an instant compassion and a wish to help others on the infertility journey, sometimes you may not even realise you help someone but just knowing that you participated in the journey and succeeded is in itself an inspiration to others.
    be proud and strong... you can all succeed in this journey to Oz.

    Hi everyone

    Billie you have been through so much I want so badly to see you post a BFP soon.

    Gardenia2 I am so very sorry that this cycle failed it must be devastating to have hope then heartbreak. I agree with others to grieve then make final decisions later. only you can know what is right for you an DH. Hugs to all of your family

    Mum4nay i agree that everything about this journey is hard . I have not yet had a cycle cancelled but every time have the scan I fear it will be. Will you get another cycle in before xmas?

    Lilly40 Big congrats on BFP. seeing that gives me hope that maybe one day it will be me.

    To everyone else on this rollercoaster hope all is good with you

    AFM - scan with FS tomorrow ( last scan by local hospital) to see if there is a uterine polyp. FET would be due end this week early next week if all ok or otherwise will push for surgery ASAP to have everything ready to go after appt with new FS in several weeks.
