Thanks very much everyone for your positive thoughts and encouragement - they seem to have done the trick because I got the second round of blood test results today and my levels are dropping nicely. Luckily the bleeding stopped two days ago (well, slowed down to occasional spotting) and combined with the bloods, the FS is content to let this cycle go forward. So I keep on sniffing my beloved SynareI but go off the Provera and wait for AF proper to arrive and then its more blood tests, and hopefully then can start stimming. I seem to be hyper-responsive to all the drugs; hopefully the lower dose she is envisioning is what will do the trick for me (I'll start at 150). Today is 14 DPO so hopefully AF is not too far away ...

Spot - hope all is on track for your FET
Slinkimalinki - thinking of you, hope you are doing ok I am the same as PinkButterfly I haven't heard of waiting 3 months between cycles?? However all our FS are so different.
Starf1sh - i start my saizen on day 25 inject 10iu daily until my trigger injection. What protocol are you doing? FS says I will feel really good while on it, as long as I don't bulk up like a body builder I'll be happy
Heiro - great to hear from you
Mum4nay - I know how you feel about getting your head around things not going to plan and having to go down the donar egg route. I'm scared to think too far ahead however I may be there next cycle if this one doesn't give us the result.
PinkButterfly - wow maybe cycle in 3 weeks that's great news

Tryingfortwo - best of luck with the next round! Sniff on!!!!

So blood test on March 2nd.
Please please please....

on me!!!!! I am soooo soooorrrrryyyyy girls for not posting since the birth of my darling Archie.....I feel ashamed of my self.....Ican only say its been a bit hecktic and time has just flown out of the window...but today..FINALLY... I have read through this beautiful thread.........and it made me feel worse due to you lovely messages you gave me....so sorry again....I can assure you that it is not due to not thinking of you..i do.....
My little man is 1 month today .....the birth was a difficult one and not really goingto plan...had a c-section in the end and really bad reaction to the epidural..so after +30hours of labor my little Archie came into our world....
I had to stay in hospital over a week due to little Archie got hypoglycemia and had to me monitored...this was due to me not having enough breastmilk and not discovered until day 4..so he was almost passing out due to low bloodsugar and had to go on the bottle straight away.....
so. I am dong both bottle and breast still as much as I can squeeze out...
Since then he has become a chubby little thing, with a weight gain of 500grams in one single week...almost 5kg now
He is so cute and I love him to bits...I have posted some pics if you like to see him...you need to befriend me due to me wanting them for more private viewing!!!! I been trying to upload more pics for ages but it just fails all the time.....
ok....enough about me...
Massive hugs to DrM....((((()))))...so sorry about your twin....thinking of you......
Fiona - I am so sorry you had a BFN....it is hard to say anything that helps...thinking of you too!!!!! Somebody said on this thread that ivf is practically seen as cosmetic surgery.....so true....I wish we all could get help as a medical condition, and therefore be for free....It sucks having to go through all of this....heaps of warm cuddles from me.
Spot....congratulations on being PUPO....I am too agreeing with everyone...surly it is you time to shine this time....
sabah - all the best with your cycle
tryingfortwo....lots of cuddly hugs to you as well...
Pink - glad your are trying again...what is the FS doing different this time????
Mum4nay - try to be positive girl...dhea can do wonders...fingers crossed

Swede - soooo good to hear from you!!! And thank you for the lovely words and cuddle x
Spot Wishing with every inch of my being that the fates align and give you the wonderful miracle you deserve.

Swede, great to hear from you! And yes we can appreciate you might have been a little bit preoccupied with caring for a newborn and recovering from a C-section! I saw your pics and Archie is just adorable!
Fiona, you are in my thoughts lovely one
Spot, To all the gods out there listen up!....
"Let this be Spot's super sticky take home bubba"
Sabah, My clinic starts saizen injections on day 3 and then a daily injection thereafter apparently...Hmm also not keen on looking like a body builder but will definately take the feeling great part!
Mum4nay, thinking of you and hoping a path becomes clear for you soon
DrMummy, how are you going?? Hope little bean is giving you plenty of pleasant reminders of it's presence.
Always, OMG bubba is due this week!!!! So excited for you Keep us posted...
Daisy, all the best for your FS appt tomorrow. If you haven't already write a long list of all your questions, including how to contact FS to ask the questions that will come up after the visit!
PinkB, I do have a very full schedule of pleasant things coming up, which should be a great distraction, including becoming godmother to my adorable nephew and my DH is taking me overseas for the week of my birthday, so I am a very lucky girl!
Hi JFB, Trying, Slinky, Hiero, Millie
AFM, afraid I'm having a very week, well month really if I'm honest! I'm reaaaally struggling with being at work and feeling my usual level of compassion and motivation. I work in health services with a very distressed population and I'm finding it really hard to be present in the way I usually would. Good days and bad days but I am finding the grief quite unexpected at times...I suspect the upcoming birthday and another year passed has something to do with it!

hello gorgeous girls
fiona - I am so terribly sorry to hear your news . You seem to be handling it with so much dignity and grace. You really are an inspiration to look at the good things we have in our lives and focus on making the most of those. Your DH seems a wonderful man. I hope together you will find the path that is just right for you. In the meantime, look forward to seeing you in here from time to time
trying - great news that your body has come to the party It's exciting that things are underway again for you. Hope you are coping OK with all the drugs. It's hard to underestimate the effect that everything has on your body and I don't think you really even realise it until you stop sniffing/injecting/inserting etc. I am feeling soooo much better now that it's all stopped.
spot - yay for being pupo and for great lining!!!! Sending every bit of positive energy your way and hoping that that little one continues to divide and conquer. It's just gotta be your turn this time
mum4nay - really sorry to hear that your body is not playing ball From others' experience DHEA does seem to be something of a wonder-drug. I hope that in time in works its magic on you too. Hope too that time brings clarity for you on the right path
starf1sh - sorry to hear you're having a bit of a gloomy one. In some ways though it is probably healthy - hard to imagine it would be any other way after recent times. Make sure you're very kind to yourself in all of this. You need time to grieve - not something you can or should just put behind you straight away. Lots of for you. When will your next cycle start? It sounds like FS has some good strategies up his/her sleeve.
melk - hope everything developing beautifully. Cannot believe you're nearly halfway already!!! WOW!
always - only 4 days to go for you. Hope the ankles are under control and you're keeping it all together
drmummy - wow - you're 16 weeks already (why is it that others' pregnancies always seem to rush by?!). Hope you are well over the M/S now and feeling great.
PinkButterfly - exciting that you may be cycling again soon. It is really great that you've had such a good break. Good too that your FS is right on the case. Getting ready to for you. Glad DD settling in well to preschool. Quite an emotional time really!
sabah - when do you start your cycle? Excuse my ignorance, but what is saizen for? Nice that you get to take a drug that actually makes you feel good! Bring it on!
Thank you so much to everyone for your thoughtful, kind words. I am feeling so much better now that I'm off the drugs. AF showed up on cue - 14dp EPU - as if nothing had ever happened! (which indeed it hadn't I guess). After totally going through the wringer last week I am just feeling relief to be out of the emotional torture of cycling. Have an appt with FS on Monday next week to discuss next steps. Not sure that we have much more in us than one more cycle (famous last words), so we'll see what he has to say...

Starfish: Thanks so much. I have been lying low as I've been freaking about todays first appointment a bit. Luckily every thing else has been up in the air too, which has been a stressful distraction.
Got to move house in less than 3 weeks because the landlord is selling and we don't like the insecure tenancy we have. So I've been doing 2x househunting, one to rent and one to buy. Plus I've been working on my first design for a lovely old client of mine, which is my first job since the car accident 18 months ago. All this while I study for a degree through Open Uni.
I've officially run out of fingers to put into pies!
To be honest I'm completely underprepared for todays meeting with FS. I don't have a clue what to ask that's practical. I will definitely keep in mind what you said about being able to contact them. I feel stupid. I'm normally the most over prepared, list at the hand kind of gal. Why after wanting this for so long (5 years) am I now freezing up?
Sorry girls. Once I get over the next month and start the process I'll be on here all the time and will try to work out exactly how you all manage to write everything in lovely neat lists remembering everyone. LOL.
All the best wishes to all of you.
Off to have a mini breakdown and more packing...
