Trying - May this one bring you your dearest birthday wish.
DrM - As the girls put it so well, when that baby is in your DH's arms, he will be totally connected with it. He just has to assimilate the change 'intellectually' first.
Starf1sh - How are you finding the mini-break from drugs? I'm trying to get some fitness back but feel OLD right now. My energy and fitness will pick up soon I'm sure.
Hi to everyone here. Kismet, how is your gorgeous princess going? Doesn't time fly?

Trying4two: HAppy Birthday. Hope you had a great day.
DrMummy: I hope that everything is going splendidly with T1.
AFM: So far I'm counting down the days to the 17th Feb and my first appt. I am feeling a rollercoaster of emotions everyday.
I would just like to say that even though I haven't got much to contribute yet, your stories are so very helpful and they keep me going.
for everyone here.

Hi lovely ladies
Fiona, Slinky, and Trying, thinking of you guys and wondering how you're feeling? Any promising symptoms to report?
Always, how did your OB appointment go?
MrsDaisyP, good to hear from you again. Yes, strap yourself in, you're in for the ride of your life but you are in good company here! All the best for your FS appointment.
Hey Millie, I have actually been IVF drug free (apart from prog pessaries) since Sept last year. I did a natural FET in Nov, so that will be me about 7 months clear of IVF drugs by the time I cycle again. Does that make me a born again IVF virgin? Anyways I hope it is good for the system to have had such a lengthy break. How's the fitness regime going? I have been trying to get back into it too with varying degrees of success!
Sending much love and to all

Tryingfortwo - for Monday sweetie!! I hope you sailed serenely through your 39th. Hope you are getting some encouraging signs... Don't worry about taking Synarel while waiting for the IUI outcome. We conceived DS naturally while I was sniffing Synarel back in 2008 and he seems absolutely fine.
Always - how did you go with the OB hon? Hang in there!!
DrMummy - others have expressed much better than I can responses about your DH's feelings. It seems that the whole IVF experience has been a really positive thing for your relationship, which is a triumph in and of itself. It seems that all the augurs are wonderful for very positive bonding between DH and the little one
fionaalice - have had a peek at your posts on the 2ww thread. Everything . You're an absolute inspiration in your attitude.
Spot - how are you going? Have been mulling over what daylight robbery your clinic is performing charging that amount for an ET. Outrageous!
Starfish - hello gorgeous Seems like you're hangin' in there with light heart and lots of positivity. You're an angel
PinkB - hello there and long time no see! Glad to hear you're having a mental break from IVF. Very healthy indeed. Sounds like there's lots going on. Our DD starts pre-school next week too. It's a big step, even if they've been in child care. Hope all goes well for your DD (and you!).
Thank you for all your positive vibes. I have a BT in the morning when they will test for HCG. It will only be 5dpt so levels would be very low, if there at all. To be honest I am not hopeful. No discernible symptoms and just don't 'feel' UTD. Whether I would at this early stage I'm not sure but just don't have a good feeling. I guess it could be the Crinone talking but still.... Won't really know for sure until Saturday in any case because even if HCG is detected tomorrow could be still from Ovidrel. We shall see......

MrsDaisy - 17th Feb only just around the corner. Will be here before you know it. Best of luck with your FS appointment. Remember to ask as many questions as you want and don't feel pressured to be rushed out of their office. Remember.......you're the customer and the one paying the big $$. I wish I knew about BH, had done my research and knew what this IVF journey was about before I went to that first appointment......oh so blind and trusting was I.........but not in the end. Went into my appointments with both guns blazing.
To our girls in their 2ww........... I will say my prayers for you and hope that some very special miracles happen in this thread. Very much deserved and long awaited.
Slinky, Starfish.........I went to the ob yesterday and have another appointment next Wed (if nothing has happened in between now and then). Will have an internal (oh yay) to see how things are going and am booked in for the 18th for inducement (this is all if bubby hasn't decided to come on its own terms). Ob has given me strict instructions "not to have bubby on the weekend as this is the weekend she's not on call". Oh fantastic.........I'll just keep my knees together. She's a wonderful ob. With all the highs and lows we had at the beginning she said she would be "really miffed to miss the birth of this bubby".
Thank God I had my MIL with me today (purely just so I wasn't on my own crapping myself). Went shopping and my eyesight started to go and I mean getting to a point where everything was blurry and getting black spots. I rang the MW (before I couldn't see the numbers on my mobile) and she said that it was probably my blood pressure had dropped really low and that I may possibly be dehydrated as well. Was given strict instructions to go to a coffee shop, get water, something sweet to drink and possibly something sugary to eat. Thankfully I felt heaps better (after I had a bottle of water, gorged myself on a Dome icy lemon drink and a rocky road cheesecake - purely medicinal of course) and my eyesight came back to completely normal after about 20 mins. Had all sorts of scenarios running through my head because my MIL cannot drive. Anyway all is good and bubby is still stretching etc.
Luv & hugs, always

Always Hoping, how lovely to hear from you! Sorry to hear about your scare, but good to know it was just blood sugar (and wouldn't it be lovely if rocky road cheesecake could fix everything!) Look forward to hearing all about lovely bubby's safe arrival and vital statistics (oooh and the lovely name!)
Slinky, I hope you're wrong and that HCG shows up in your BT. Hang in there lovely.
MrsDaisyP, I totally agree with EVERYTHING Always Hoping advises. Read everything you can, learn everything you can - and feel free to keep your butt stuck to the chair until you get all the answers you need! Good luck
Hi Millie, love reading your posts and receiving your positive messages - they mean more than usual right now (see below ...)
Hi Fionaalice, how are things going in the 2WW? Am so sure you are our soon-to-be first BFP of the Year of the Rabbit!
And a giant, friendly to Pink Butterfly and Starfish, Kismet and Spot and Dr Mummy,
Its been kind of a rough week for me. Got a hideous 24 hour vomiting bug on the day I started Synarel, couldn't hold down the Provera and Prednisolone, though I took it as usual 12 hours later (and can I just thank God for doctors who do home visits armed with Maxolon) and now on all of Day 19, have started AF. I have never, ever, had AF arrive this early before. Obviously it means the IUI didn't work - which is a bit depressing considering there were three follicles there that ovulated - but am now terrified that we might have to cancel this next cycle as well. Am so bloody sick of FSs and FNs saying "that's weird" or "I didn't expect that to happen" when my eggs grow more quickly than they intend, or I start bleeding early, or whatever. When the FS said it today I felt like saying "Yep, I'm a big, fat, weird, infertile old lady, maybe you should stop taking my money so I can get off this IVF bandwagon and get back on with my life." However, I remembered that was the psychotic Synarel talking and held my tongue, especially when she went on to say that the mix of meds I'm on means I shouldn't get my period. Hurray for me, I'm a medical miracle. Anyway, its full blood tests tomorrow and we'll see what is happening.

Slinky - Best of luck with the HCG levels. I have my (and everything else) for your results. to that blast that was transferred and hope you get the best news ever today .
Trying4two - So sorry to hear that you have been so and that AF reared her ugly head. She is such a biach. Sometimes you just wish FN and FS would close their mouths when crappy things happen. They don't add to our confidence in them. Hopefully the blood tests will give you some answers You've had a really rough trot and deserve a break. Let's focus on your next steps and we'll put all our postive energy into that cycle for you.
A big to everyone I have missed and to those that may need it.
Have a wonderful day
Luv & Hugs, always

Always, oh what a horrible scare so glad everything is ok with you and bub. Your OB sounds lovely, very caring. Good luck with keeping those legs together but I'm guessing it's not going to be you who decides when bubba is ready to come! Will be watching very closely over the next week and sending lots of love and your way
Tryingfortwo, what a bl00dy 'trying' cycle you have had! I'm so sorry Probably not much consolation ATM but I think most of us who have been at this awhile have had at least 1 aberrant cycle where things did not go to plan at all but back on track the next. Hope this is the case for you Take care lovely.
Slinky, hoping to hear great news from you today, and
Special to all the Brissie girls, will be in your fair city this weekend and hoping it's
Have a great weekend all
