    Thanks everyone for their kind words. It seems that one of the reasons I was feeling so bad yesterday was because I had developed a UTI and spend about 5 hours peeing blood. This seems to have passed through my system now with the help of the anti-biotics however, this is my third infection in 2 IVF cycles (the previous two were vag infections) and I am not prone to this type of infection prior to this. I am not sure what is going on and am not keen to start a new cycle until someone can tell me. My FS doesn't seem too concerned (although he was away and doesn't know about the two most recent infections) and said the crinone may have caused the first one but the second one came on before I started using it this cycle. To cut a long story short - has anyone else had any problems with infections during their journeys?

    Otgirl no knowledge on infections but I would be asking you FS more about this as if could be contributing to you conceiving.

    Micca hope your rested up and gearing up for you scan when are you having it Im dying to hear how the twins are

    Deelicious and lilbirdy hows the two week wait going

    Soclose and Kitty M any sign of AF yet

    Sooz when is your scan for the heart beat

    To all the other ladies Hi I hope you are all well love to all

    Well no news here read an article that if you have not conveived by the 3rd attempt its not going to happen. My heart sank as I have now had two chemicle pregnancies and this will be my 4th go at IVF. Wish I had never read it have to try and get that negativity out of my head now. Has anyone else read or heard of this. Off to acupuncture tonight he specialises in IVF so Im going to ask him if he has heard that too.

    Have a great day ladies thinking of you all

    Lilly40, I'm with minibar, just ignore those sorts of articles. I did 3 x IUI & 3 x IVF and there are so many stories of other women out there who had succes after many more than 3 cycles. I remember the Acupuncturis I saw telling me that average was 5 IVF cycles for an older woman.... but as usual, we always seem to want to put stats and numbers to everything. Every case is different and whilst you can remain strong and positive and just take each failure as another step closer to a BFP, then keep going.

    Tiny heartbeat scan is Tuesday next week. It's taking forever to arrive - I'm so impatient to just hear that little heartbeat to know it's all ok and this BFP is for real.

    Hugs to all Sooz xo

    Well it's been 1 hell of a week to say the least.

    Finally dragged myself to the GP to discuss general feeling under the weather and no AF following cancelled cycle. Was told that at my age, my body has had a shock with all the hormones, and that I should just be patient. He prescribed Provera 10mg for 10 days - so yet more hormones!! My DH wasn't too happy, and decided to phone the FS for advice. FS said that it could take a while for hormones to settle, and suggested that I have a range of blood tests, just to check HB, hormone levels and cover all bases.

    So, worked Sunday night, and dragged my sorry self to the blood collectors first thing Monday morning. I got home and climbed straight into bed for my much needed sleep - I was immediately out for the count and dead to the world.

    At 1pm, I was rudely awoken by my mobile, and took so long to find it, missed the call, however noticed that I had missed 5 calls in total, and the last one was from my DH.

    In my sleep deprived stupor, I phoned him back, and he told me that the FS had been trying to get in touch, and needed to speak to me asap. So as you can imagine I started to panic. I phoned the FS immediately but he was in theatre and I too had to leave a message.

    My DH was home an hour later - and by now I had imagined all the worse things possible, and was completely stressed out.

    Eventually the FS phoned, and explained what the problem was that one of the blood tests had been to test for pregnancy - and low and behold we had a BFP, however FS felt that this needed to be checked as highly unlikely. He arranged an urgent appointment to discuss this and at 4.30pm I was sitting in his office, being told that the only way that this had happened was if I had had extramarital sex - as DH has had Vasectomy. Up till this point, I had thought it was a false positive and something was hellish wrong with my hormones. So I was totally shocked and felt like a scarlet woman despite adamantly denying any wrong doing.

    So Blood tests were redone, to check for error. Still a positive and HCG levels are 5700. DH very supportive and we are both shell shocked.

    DH underwent a semen analysis yesterday, and the results are in............live sperm !!!!!!! DH credits all this to Menevit, and FS suspects that there may have been semen there all along, and we just got lucky.

    Scan booked for Friday morning - and hopefully everything is ok.

    I'm on annual leave now, having taken the last 2 nights off sick - as I was in no fit state to work safely.

    Everything is crossed that things go ok, and will keep you all posted on how the scan goes.

    x x x

    Just a quicky.

    Sorry, been MIA.....parents arrived from interstate for a couple of weeks.....thrilled to have my mum and dad around and have been really busy doing 'stuff' with them.

    KittyM - OMG, what a week!!!! What wonderful wonderful news.....congratulations. You must be in so much shock. Its great to see all these BFP's. Well done and congratulations again.

    Micca - Thanks for the PM regarding the royal jelly.....started taking it a couple of days ago....tastes foul, but all over and done with in a couple of minutes. Good luck for your next uss....what date is it again? Are you getting more and more comfortable with possibly having twins? Cant wait to hear the next installment.

    Sooz - Still looking and those positive POAS's!!! Good luck for your uss....cant wait for your next installment either.

    Goldy and Otgirl - So sorry to hear of your news....it sucks. Look after yourselves....cry, cry and more crying. Spoil yourselves and then seek some further direction. Hugs to you guys....thinking of you.

    AFM
    Well my endometrial cyst is not an endometrial cyst!!!! It is a cyst in the wall of my uterus close to the endometrial lining....it is still there but it has decreased in size quite a bit. Having acupuncture and chinese herbs to try and decrease it even more and then go on the pill next AF, to try and shrink it. So just waiting for AF now. Wont be cycling till the end of August . Didnt like hearing that bit of news, but what can I do.

    to everyone else..hope you are all well in your journeys.

    Kitty M....wow...OMG is really the answer.... that is a great beta level...so maybe around 5-6weeks pregnant...far out...I bet that hit you blindsided...you are the second story that I have heard like this.... bad form for the FS to say it was impossible without an affair...naughty naughty bedside manner.... your GP did not sound much more helpful.....sigh.... at least you have had a great result
    I can wait to hear your uss results...Ill be checking every hour on friday....

    Penny... fingers crossed for you egg collection tomorrow I hope it goes well and then a great fert alert for you...

    Lilly..I would not take that study for heart. I read a lot where there are several peaks of BFPs... 1st cycle, 4-5th cycle and 9th cycle.... so if you can keep cycling you will have success
    and thats a fact....xxxx

    sooz...the uss wait is really a 2ww on the insane train again as you wait and fret about everything.... try and keep busy if you can....

    deeelicious/lilibirdy...how are the both of you going in the insane asylum?? do you need medicating yet or are the straight jackets holding up....

    otgirl...I hope you are beginning to get everything together and your tears are decreasing.... big hugs...

    AFM
    well a not so bad day at work.
    finished now..Ive got 2 days off before I work the weekend.....
    USS is tomorrow morning and my mind is in a very dark and twisted place. I keep feeling that everything will be bad on the scan tomorrow and having negative thoughts. my silly brain keeps saying...there will be no heartbeat, the gestional sac was small last time and I really dont deserve happiness .....and then my sensible brain keeps yelling at me to stop being so paranoid and it will be ok... sigh.... my silly brain seems to be in charge at the moment.... Usually I am ms stoic and positive type of person but right now Im just paranoid patty.... the uss machine is just a little one just like the FS use... I might go to the city and get a proper one at 9-10 weeks (only 1-2 weeks away)... as the report was pretty poor quality last time....and I need the security of a high resolution machine.... what I really need is to see the fetal medicine people and have reassurance...sigh...
    I am just praying that tomorrow goes well... I hope I can sleep tonight....

    anyway enough of all that from paranoid patty.... tomorrow will be what will be....
    xxxxx

    OMG Kitty, that is just wonderful. Thanks to the Vasectomy Dr out there that didn't quite get it right . HCG levels are nice and high - do you know how far along you might be? Can't wait to hear your next instalment on Friday!!

    Sunny, bugger having to wait til end of August, but sounds like you are doing a super job at getting that cyst under control. Enjoy having your parents around you and hopefully they will help to make that time fly.
