    jenkie.....congrats on the BFP...

    I was so cautious of my BFP until I was about 20 weeks then I slowly began to enjoy it... I really did not relax until about 28weeks and then I knew that everything would be alright.. But it is normal for you to think about the bad side of things in the first trimester... more so because of what we have had to go through to get pregnant and it is all so precious...
    So both of you jenkie and mammalinz hang in there...

    Lets hope that there are more BFPs to come...lilibirdy, tens, lucky you are next up to the HPT gates...

    Jenkie - congratulations. That is fantastic news. I hope everything goes well for you over the next 35 weeks.

    Lucky and Lilly - good luck in the TWW. I will have everything crossed for both of you.

    Hi to everyone else.

    AFM - Nurse rang this morning and spoke to DP as I was in shower. She said one egg had fertilised and they would check on the others later today and let me know Monday. They asked him whether we wanted to freeze at 3 days or 5 days as 3 days would give us more chance of having something to thaw. He said he didn't know and they told him that we should ring them Monday and let them know. What the heck do we pay them for - they have made the decision every time prior to this and told me what was going to happen - how the hell would I know what I should do. I don't have the years of experience in this matter that they do! I will speak with my FN on Monday and hopefully she and my FS will have made the decision for me.

    LuckyAPA – I love your attitude! Can I be you – I am such a ball of anxiety. Surely your frame of mind is the better way to go! My advice re: HPT just don’t do them! They are stupid. Gosh I wish I could just hold out for the 6-week scan. Mind you I don’t have to travel for 2 hours for a blood test – more like 10 minutes. You’re right though; the blood test won’t change a thing!! You’re so right – nothing I do at this point is going to make too much difference! Hee hee – after my transfer I was scared to go to the toilet, also. So stupid, I know. My embryologist told me to put two eggs back in, instead of one, due to the same reason, my age. It does scare me – twins. Only because of the potential for more to go wrong. It is reassuring to hear you have done this before and only ended up with one. Do you mind me asking which clinic your with? Anyway – welcome to the TWW how are you feeling? Maybe your symptoms are a good sign
    Deb11 – Thank you so much. Yes… my hypnotist said the same thing to me. I.e. that my body knows how to hold a baby. but does it remember? Hee hee. I did so much differently this time. I changed clinics, changed FS, changed protocols and did the Colorado, hired a Personal trainer and exercised 3 x per week, stopped acupuncture and changed to weekly massages and saw a hypnotist once every 2 weeks to assist in reducing anxiety. The Colorado protocol meant lots of extra drugs … HGH, Luvs, melatonin, DHEA, um… anyway – if you message me privately I can give you this list. Melatonin is to increase egg quality. A Japanese study found encouraging results in women who took it during IVF cycles
    Jenkie – Congratulations – OMG OMG. We 40+ are kicking out of the ball park !! Your HCG is sensational … I am so excited for you, for me, for us… Hopefully a few more lovely ladies will be joining us in a couple of weeks.
    Lilbirdy – good luck with the 2WW. How are you feeling? How many did you transfer?
    Tens2many – I laughed so hard when you said you cried and cried. The hormones are also making me a crying lunatic. Everything is making me cry – bloody hormones ! Anyway the FN told me it isn’t a viable pregnancy till at least the 7-week scan. How scary is that! I think your follies result is brilliant. Remember I only had 3 – and nothing as big as a 20 and it resulted in a pregnancy, so don’t be discouraged! Good luck with your trigger tonight! My partner and I were told to have sex the night before transfer (maybe that is what made the difference?) sperm aids making the environment right?? For implantation – god – what do I know? Are you going to donate your spare frostie? Can we do that?
    Micca – I am with you – being cautious till 20 weeks makes complete sense! You want to enjoy it but you don’t want to open the flood gates of joy as it may not turn out as one would wish -… it is such a hard balance
    Otgirl – Congratulations – your off to a good start ! Cant believe they are leaving the decision up to you – crazy !! What do we pay them for, seriously. In my instance I was not given a choice… I have been pretty much bossed through the whole process. I would call Nick and ask to speak with him.. He may not be very friendly or approachable but gosh – he is opinionated and he will have an opinion on the issue. Whenever we (DP & I) have been unsure of the next step we have insisted on speaking with Nick. He has always been a bit grumpy but he has always called back and always answered our questions !

    mammalinz - i see Dr Esler at Queensland Fertility Group in Toowoomba. I live about 2 hours west of Toowoomba, basically in whoop whoop.
    How do I feel? Well, to be honest I only feel back to normal today after the egg collection. I've been bloated and tender and just generally uncomfortable since Wednesday. Is that normal? Last time, there was none of that so it took me a bit by surprise this time. And, of course, I'm still in shock that our result was so good. Apart from not having any spare embryos to freeze, which would have been ideal, the cycle just couldn't have gone any better.....well, so far anyway.
    And as for my attitude, I have bad days like everyone else, then I come on here and read some stories, get some inspiration and feel much better. i was having a bad day today until i came on here. don't know how I'm going to get through the next 12 days......

    Hello lovely ladies, firstly THANKYOU all for your best wishes, I really appreciated it. Apart from DH, we haven't told a sole our news, so it kinda made it real after reading your responses....

    Mammalinz - has it sunk in yet that your pregnant?? Hope everything going along smoothly. When is your scan?

    LuckyAPA & Lilbirdy - how's the TWW going? Sending you lots of

    Otgirl - am shocked along with Mammalinz that you had to decide what to do next. Am sure whatever decision you make will be the right one. Have eveything crossed for you.

    Tens2many - all the very best for EPU tomorrow.

    To everyone else, wishing you all the very best.

    AFM - no real sympton as yet, my (.)(.) are a bit tender but that's it. Am waiting to hear back from FS as I'd like to get another BT done just for my own piece of mind and sanity....if I know the levels are going up then I'll feel much better. Can't wait for the 7th for the scan, and hoping I make it that far.

    Well it is all over for me. I contacted my FS this morning to request she tell the embryologist what to do but when I spoke to her she told me the embryo had not survived the weekend. This was to be my last attempt as I would have to change doctors/clinics to continue as I am 45 on Friday. I don't see the point given I have now had two 3 egg collections with no outcomes. I will continue to follow your journeys and I hope that things work out for all of you.

    otgirl - hugs galore to you.
    i don't know where you live but if you do decide to change specialists, my fs actually encourages older women like us, it's like they're a challenge to him. dr esler at qfg in toowoomba.
