    Lilly40 - so exciting to finally be getting to the scan stage. Hopefully you'll also get some answers about the discharge. Maybe that's just the kind of pregnancy you'll have?? I understand about being freaked out though!!!!

    Hoping4more - such a brave decision you've made. Good luck becoming a nana. My mum says it's the best!!

    Lillbirdy - where are you at in this crazy ride??

    Wannabb - that sounds like great numbers and even better that they're growing at around the same rate. Sounds very promising!

    JM - for 5th time lucky.

    Billiesmum - we'll be FET buddies in January. I'm not on anything yet?? Is that unusual?? I guess we wont be starting til late Jan.

    Jenkie - your DH is so cute!!

    AFM - seeing FS tomorrow to find out why a perfect grade 3 embryo which started sticky ended in M/C. I know exactly what he'll say and do. First he'll write my age on the page and circle it a few times then he'll say it's from my bad eggs. Hmmm pretty over that. Just want o know what we're doing next and what we'll do to make it stick a little longer. Am looking forward to having a plan though. I did buy an ovulation predictor kit today to try it the old fashioned way - you just never know . Found out today that we can pick up our new car on Monday next week. Cant wait for that. We may not have gotten PG but at least the year ended on a little bit of a high.

    High to everyone I've missed!!

    Ladies

    I am sorry I have been MIA. I have had a couple of weeks worked which has kept me really busy, a couple of weekends away and, to be honest, we have been dealing with the fact our baby dream may never happen.

    I will spend a bit of time today going back and catching up on everyone's updates.

    I just wanted to share with you all how I went with the guru. I got a call yesterday to say he couldn't make my appointment on Friday so could I come in today. He was exactly how you all had described him, plus a little more. But I loved him. Sure, he told me things I didn't want to know, but he certainly has a fun way about approaching it. Basically he says he will take my money and do another cycle, but at 44 my chances are 0.0001% that it would work. He is suggesting donor eggs, which I guess is no surprise due to my age. Came home and had a big chat to DH who in the past has not wanted to go down that road, but he is happy for us to try one last time with donor eggs. I guess the hardest thing is the cost, and I really need to do it asap due to my age.

    I have a phone consultation today with a Dr in SA who specialises in adenomyosis (which I thought was the problem, but Warren says it is old eggs) so I will also wait and see what he says, but I am sure it will be the same story.

    I will be back to do personals later today. I hope you are all doing as well as we can in this journey and look forward to catching up.

    Jen

    Hi everyone

    Tens2many - Im crossing everything for you Im hopping you get your wish for Xmas.

    Jen42 - Hope your consultation went well today

    Tryingreallyhard - hope you got some answers and a way forward today thinking of you

    Lillbirdy - things are looking good for you this cycle rest up and take care of those follies X

    Wannabub - you are also looking good looks like you and Lillbirdy will be in the TWW together big hugs

    jenkie - how you holding up are you going waiting for the scan

    To Billiesmum, johnathansmum, Pearlhobbs, Chillie, Sunny, Micca, hopingformore a big hi and thinking of you all

    Apologies to anyone I have missed.

    Well had my first specialist OB appointment this morning and he is lovely was so nice. He did a scan and Im right on 8 weeks and 5 days and all looking well with strong loud heartbeat. No sign of any blood left in the uterus which is good. He said the brown spotting not to worry about as with people like me (for those who dont know my history I had a sever bicorniute uterus which was operated on 2 years ago to rectify (I say that my uterus has had a facelift!) anyway ladies like me apparently can have some bleed as the side of the uterus the pregnancy is not on thinks its not pregnate, hence the brown dishcharge still dont really understand but he has put me at ease. He will be monitoring me every two weeks due to the short cervix as they dont like to stitch up unless they have to as it can cause stress on the baby. He also said more than like have a prem baby due to the condition and abnormalities in the uterus. Im booked in on Dec 24 to have the 12 week downs scan etc. and he is also doing a cystic fibrosis test which apparently they usually do. All in all everything looking spot on at this stage.

    Have a great night everyone thinking of you all XOX

    TryingreallyHard - i hope we are FET buddies in Jan. Mine will be later in the month given my big OS trip to Ireland. I am looking forward to counting down the days with others rather than watching from the sidelines (in a way I am but I know I am going to be terrified if anything good happens.. hard to explain). Reading your post was like deja vu. Having gone down the DE route I can assure you it matters not whom the "genetic" mother is, one kick and they are yours.. Happy to share my experience with you if you want to chat. As for you not being on anything yet, thats not unusual, you are not as "old" as me and your lining might respond better than mine. My FS wants me to succeed with the 4 bubsicles because of what has happened so he is keeping me on the "stuff" to give me every chance.

    Lilbirdy - thanks for your kind thoughts. I hope your follies are all full of "good" eggs and that you have a successful transfer and some on ice.. that would be the best outcome and i will be watching the forum to see the outcome after your jabbing sessions.

    Tens2many - my pill popping is a bit surreal. Never thought I would venture down this path again. Was happy with Billie. But, as you know, life changes in an instant, and I sincerely hope your instinct is right. I hope you get the BFP. I do not miss being on the drugs and putting on a few kilos when i am not even eating much. But, as we all know we do what we need to do to succeed. My questions to myself - why am i doing this when i am probably not mentally ready. anyway.. TMI sorry ladies..

    Lilly40 - to read your posts gives us all a sense of hope. I am so happy for you. You will have the best xmas and well deserved too. When you see the little one at the scan on xmas eve you will be so excited as will all of us on the forum when you share the details.

    Wannabb - It is snowing and minus 10 in Ireland. HELLO.... OMG I think thermal underwear is the go. Here i am in Brisvegas watching my hair swell in the mirror due to the humidity and thinking in a few weeks I will be the exact opposite.

    Jonothansmum - wishing you every success

    Hi everyone else

    AFM - still waiting waiting waiting for AF. I am trying to calculate when AF will be arriving in Jan and whats the point when I am now approx 2 weeks late because of all the drugs. very confusing. Its amazing I never wanted to whinge about not getting AF - need i say more

    *me post coming*

    Well I had a complete meltdown before work yesterday morning. It wasn't over anything really big, I had to fill out some paperwork with DH and it included consents in the case of 'leftover' embryos. It was just a trigger for a massive crying/hysterics, I curled up on the bed in my work clothes and just sobbed. I think in hindsight it's probably been pushed down, I am really trying to be strong but just fell over today.

    I don't cry very much during this process, only when I get BFNs and that's usually 'done with' after a few hours. Sometimes I feel like that outlet of crying would help because it's like a pressure valve, rather than the explosions that seem to be my 'way'. DH was really comforting and we agreed to go to the gym together to help me get back into exercise, plus I made a counselling appt for Friday. I went and did a 'body balance' class at the gym yesterday after work.

    On the physcial front, next scan tomorrow, I'd suggest EPU Mon or Tues.


    I will come back for personals soon ladies.

    ps. Jen nice to see you again ! xxx

    Hey girls,

    Lilly40, just wanted to check back and see how your scan went. I’m so glad it went well and you’ve got a strong little heart beat going in there. I’ll be checking back to see how you go on the 24th. I hope you get an awesome xmas pressie with an all clear result. Good luck.

    Tryingreallyhard, I hope your FS appointment shed some light on what’s going on and can give you some new strategies to work with. Would be wonderful if you could do it the old fashioned way and have a nice surprise for xmas or new year. I’ll keep everything crossed for you. Enjoy the car. Something new is always nice.

    Tens2many, I’m keeping everything crossed for you that it’s all happening down there. I wish you all the luck to get a good BT result.

    Lilbirdy, big hugs to you. It’s just a big head f&^% isn’t it? Hope you scan goes well and you get a date for EPU and some great eggies that behave wonderfully.

    To everyone else, and

    Knew I couldn’t keep away completely. It’s all too addictive on here. I had to come back to see how a few people were going. Wasn’t going to post but… there you go.

    Hope you are all plodding along nicely. Will be keeping an eye on all of you. Best wishes.

    Jo.

    Helloooo everyone,


    LILLY40- So glad your scan went well may help to worry a little less er well probably not but it takes a little stress away so you can enjoy...Dont forget to ask for a picture at your scan will make a good prezzie for the family.

    BILLIESMUM-Funny how 1 minute we want AF to show her ugly face and then the next minute we'd do anything including running BUCK NAKED up the main street just for it to stay AWAYYYYYY....
    I am on steriods and eating like an absolute PIG!!!!!!
    I understand what you mean about mentally not ready I think I am BUT there is no doubt in my mind that if and when I fall I will be a complete BASKET CASE until I get to hold a healthy/breathing baby.

    LILBIRDY-meltdown all you want it is very stressful not many people can comprehend that but we all do here and we all have our HISSY FITS hopefully one day u can look back and laugh

    HOPING4MORE-Glad to see you sticking your head in we can use your support and advice.

    AFM-Im eating like an animal these steriods make me starving
    Still having cramps on and off,over obsessing about everything
    Crying about everthing
    Im not sleeping at all drugs are reeking havoc on me not only am I eating like a trooper i'm drinkin like a drunkin sailor(not grog tho) therefore p%#ing and really bad cramps in my calf muscles..
    Not sure when to POAS as I had a 2 day transfer and dont want to do it too early any ideas when I should ????

    to anyone ive missed.

    Jen42 - we saw Wazza yesterday and he also went down the donor road. He told us that if we wanted to get an egg straight away then we could pay $11, 500 for eggs from the US or we could wait on the list here (and get one when Im 50). He said that the donor program is his passion and he works really hard to get the best donors for us. My DH is havng a hard time getting his head arund the donor thing and Wazza basically said that being a mother isnt about the biology and that the bubba would be half him and all me He certainly tells you it straight doesnt he. At least you know exactly where you stand.

    Tens - I know what you mean about the steroids and eatng. Since starting this process I've put on 12kgs. Gotta now get it all off again before the next cycle next year. Are you on and pregnyl boosters? If you are then you can POAS 7 days after the last dose.

    Hoping - God I hope so . Would be such a nice Chrissie present. How are you going. Such a brave decision ou've both made. Im glad you're at peace with it too!!!

    Lilbirdy - I had a meltdown after the last MC (last week). God how I cried. I felt like it would never stop. My DH was fantastic. He actually knew exactly what to say this time to make me feel better. I have to say that all the weight I had put on made me feel even worse. Im now back on an exercise program to lose it all again.

    Billiesmum - it is esciting to finally be doing something rather than watching from the sideline. If we dont get UTD naturally then I'll be with you late January.

    AFM - saw Wazza yesterday. The crux of it is that we can 1. give up now and save our money 2. keep going with my eggs or 3. go the donor egg route. We've only had 2 goes so we've decided on using my eggs for a few more goes. But FET wont be til January so we're going to have a semi-natural go this month. Having some letrozole for 5 days then scan a week after that. Then he'll monitor me to see when I ovulate so we can do rooties . We'll see how we go but if not then January it is. He also talked about some ways to make my eggs better and then stickier. We talked about Saizen and he's very happy for us to try it (he said it's quite expensive). Then there's this other stuff called lipoidal that he squirts in before ET. Then finally he talked about scarifying my uterus before ET. That sounds terrible. Has anyone ever heard of the lipoidal or the scarifying or had it done??? I guess we'll try anything for a sticky BFP. Im a bit over all this miscarrying (he called me a serial aborter ). Sorry guys - that ended up being really long!!

    Hi to everyone I missed. Hope you all have a lovely weekend.

    Hi Ladies

    I hope you don't mind me crashing your thread. I've been posting on the Poor responders thread because.. well I am one. But this seems like a positive thread and since I'm 41 I figure I should be part of it. DH and I have had three failed cycles and are waiting for AF to start our fourth and final one (can only afford one more). I have my that the new year will bring us the joy of a BFP.

    I look forward to getting to know you.
    Cheers
