Already posted a message on 35+ graduates thread but can't say it too many times!!! Another BIG CONGRATULATIONS to Swede and DH on the birth of your precious bub, Archie.
Mum4nay, well if we're ever there again together you'll have to give me a cheeky wave! (Or alternatively we could hold each other's hand for future scary appts )
I had another bt today to help me decide what to do. Unfortunately my hcg is not falling at all but still slowly rising, so have made an appt with FS to arrange D&C as really this could go on for weeks at this rate. Psychologically this feels like the best decision for me.
Sending huge hugs to Millie and Mum4nay , much love also to all the gorgeous regulars and the lovely lurkers!

to Swede and her DH on the safe arrival of Archie. What wonderful news. We are all so happy for you both.
Starfish - honey I am so sorry that your BT is showing your HCG still rising. Very heartbreaking for you. Biggest of biggest to you. You are so strong.
Luv & hugs to all

congratulations swedeendie Enjoy your divine little bundle. I hope you are enjoying extended euphoria. There is nothing quite like the feeling of meeting that little one, particularly after such challenges to get him. Enjoy every precious moment
Starf1sh - I am blown away by your grace and dignity. You really are to be admired. Well done you on picking yourself up - and so quickly! - and finding a way forward. Amazing
mum4nay - you too are being incredibly resilient. I think the 'wait and see' approach is a great one. No need to rush into any decisions. Sleep on it - many times if you need to - and see how you feel. for you
millie - some for you too and well done also for looking only forward
DrM - hope that MS is coming under control now
AFM - BT tomorrow morning (day 10 of sniffing) so thinking I might get the go ahead to start jabbing very soon. Still feeling very surreal. Perhaps sharp objects going into my tummy will bring things into sharper focus Feeling quite intrigued about how the cycle is going to go. Really don't know what to expect in terms of egg numbers/quality. Guess all will be revealed soon.

Good luck Slinky with the 'sharp objects' yikes! Hope it brings you a 3rd little miracle
Sweede - congratulations!! and welcome to this world Archie - I LOVE the name!
Starfish - you poor thing, I'm thinking of you. Have you definitely decided to move on from Dr S?? I really like him and wished I'd gone to him years ago!! And yes, if I see you again I'll be there to hold your hand
AFM - it's now day 50 and still no AF (usually 24 day cycles but now started on DHEA). I'm assuming the longer this goes on the worse is my prognosis - Dr S said it would suggest I'm having trouble ++ ovulating. Any comments?? I've considered going on the pill just to kick start things but Dr S says that's universally been shown to have no effect. Grrrr.

Just the little ray of light we all needed on here.
Starfish, thinking of you as always and wish it were easier.
AFM day one of my cycle so ... here I go on another FET, possibly our last go. Not quite committed to saying it will be the last but I think it might be. So ladies over the next 4 weeks I'd really love you to send some of your positive vibes my way.
Love to all

Slinky, I'm sure the jabbing is like just riding a bike! In a couple of days you'll feel like a pro again. Exciting times to be starting again
Don't be fooled by the calm, control freak, over planning exterior I am at times feeling incredibly ripped off and angry because the situation really is F@#$%! I haven't been able to go back to work full time, my hearts just not in it while I am trying to resolve this situation and I seem to be saving my darkest moments for DH, lucky him! BUT I am trying to remember how lucky I am to have a stable relationship with a wonderful partner and so many other blessings in my life.
Always, thanks darl Hope our little ray of blue sunshine is treating you well!
Fiona, LET THIS BE THE ONE
Mum4nay, no I haven't made any definitive decisions. All in all I have been really happy with Dr S and the clinic and TBH it doesn't really suit me to change (although I am not a fan of Maroubra day surgery, another story!) On the surface of it every embie he transferred for me has implanted, he put me on DHEA, has been open to discussing all options I have brought to the table and has been unfailingly kind throughout all of this but I feel after so many unsuccessful cycles and 2 blighted ovums I need an independent opinion and fresh eyes on our situation, rather than just persevering. We are seriously considering PGD now and SIVF seems to have more experience with this, newer technology, as well as offering miscarriage management which has never been offered to me at IVFA. So will hear all options but in no rush to make a decision.
Will you make an appt to go back and discuss further options or leave it for a while? Hope AF gets her act together soon for you hun

Fiona sending all the positive implanting vibes i can muster lovely- please let this be Fi's special bub
Starfish i am so sorry to hear things are still going on for you, I hope the D&C takes care of everything and you look to the future soon . Take care lovely - and a new set of eyes looking on your situation is a good thing - I have only delt with SIVF's mic management clinic over the phone but they were brilliant.
Mum4nay i wish had some magic cure to suggest for you to bring on AF lovely but i don't, i hope your FS can come up with something soon so you too can look towards the future.
Slinky wishing you all the very best hope you start jabbing soon and all goes well
DRM hope you and twins are doing good and the ms is improving.

Starfish so sorry HCG is still rising, hope you can get closure soon
Fiona sending you very positive vibes and I hope this is the one for you

Dear sweet Fiona - don't be saying this is the last time cause it's too much pressure for you (even if it probably is).... just take it day by day and enjoy all this babydust through your hair and on your eyelashes
Starfish - thanks for your positive feedback with dr S - I'm new with him so just finding my way.... AFM, I'll retest AMH after 4-6 months on DHEA and rethink. I'm also ploughing through the donor websites just contemplating at present.... ummmm
Melk - your pregnancy is going so fast! How are you feeling - lovin' every moment I bet!
Hi to everyone else,
19-01-2011 14:52 #370
swede - a big congrats on the birth of little Archie. So pleased for you and DH!
fiona - sending lots of positive vibes and babydust your way. Am in a similar position - although I have stacks of embies left, our money (and our tolerance for the rollercoaster of IVF) is running out so am looking at going into my last 1 or 2 cycles sometime this year unless we either get rich (unlikely) or decide to keep going regardless and worry about the $$ later. Am kind of putting off going back because I'm scared I will feel much more pressure knowing it could be the last cycles ever.
starfish - big hugs to you - hope you are doing OK. Have been thinking of you lots.
