    Sorry ladies, not much time for personals tonight....but I just wanted to quickly say a big congratulations to Jenkie and Mammalinz (I think I may have already congratulated you, but hey, there is not enough congratulations for a BFP!). Also, congratulations to those who are PUPO and in the 2WW…..lots and lots of and for more BFP’s on this thread……geez, we deserve it, don’t we?! A very big welcome to the newbies…..this thread is not only informative, but the ladies are very very supportive….I think I have mentioned it before, but we celebrate the good times and commiserate the bad times with each other…..looking forward to getting to know you. Hugs to the ladies with BFN’s….my heart and thoughts are with you. Hi to everyone else…..hope you are all well in your IVF journey. Finally, a very special mention to Otgirl…..hun, big hugs to you….you are an amazing courageous woman!

    Thanks to the ladies who have asked after me.

    Guru time is finally here……we leave for Brisvegas tomorrow lunch time and my appointment is with guru Wazza on Friday, cant wait. Im back on DHEA, but I have it in the format of capsules this time and not troche. Too early for any side effects…hopefully it wont be the same as last time (itchy scalp, hair loss and mild acne – oh the joys of assisted conception!).

    Realised I had a dilemma on the weekend….but I know that I may not get much sympathy from you guys……I suddenly realised that I needed to buy some jumpers/cardies, anything with long sleeves, as I didn’t own any and it is cold in Brisvegas….damn a shopping trip!!!! Not much choice in the long sleeves department here in the tropics, so I hope I don’t look daggy!

    Anyway, off to pack my bag and give Mr Jack Russell some lovin’ before he goes to the pet resort for a couple of days. Will hopefully have a ‘miracle cure’ after Friday….will let you all know.

    Ciao for now.

    Hi Ladies

    This is my second attempt to post as my computer just froze inexplicably mid way through typing. Grrrr !! My machine never does that !

    Jenkie – great numbers – hope things sort themselves out for you soon

    mammalinz – wow such good numbers too !! Great news !!

    lilwish – welcome – how I hate that "your eggs are too old" chat – my MIL is always on about age – lucky she doesn’t mention that and babies in the same convo or there might be bloodshed !! (But she thinks we just decided not to have them !)

    lilbirdy – welcome

    LuckyAPA – you poor thing ! I never do HPT’s – don’t trust them, but then I rarely make it to the blood test ! My period usually comes at the time it is supposed to crinone/clexane or not !!


    Lilybaby – welcome – sounds like you have been through quite a journey


    Sunny 15 – good to hear from you again – I had wondered what you were up to – good luck for the Wazza appointment -- hoping he can give you what you are after – lol at the shopping trip

    Thanks to those who have asked after my appointments and what not – we haven’t told many people about what we are going through so it is nice to know we are in some peoples thoughts at least ! I told my sister what we were doing a year ago and she has never asked me anything about it since ... probably a good thing !

    AFM – we saw 2 FS’s on Monday – one kept us waiting an hour and a half, we actually had to leave to make the 2nd appointment and come back.

    The first gave us some tests to go and get done – AMH/FSH and said if the numbers weren’t great (>10/<than 14 ???) then he wouldn’t treat us because of my age. He also talked about measuring the ovaries, and some dye test, as well as something like flushing the ovaries and how that can sometimes help.

    The other doctor gave us a script for DHEA, and had the AMH test (and a couple of others) done at the clinic. She was prepared to give us a go and do a flare cycle, and said she would consider an IUI as well. She didn’t make any promises, and that is fine. I am at the point where I think we are just flogging a deadhorse anyway !

    I think DH is coming around to thinking we will have to do something else like donor eggs, and even said he would help write the advert. Don’t know if I am there yet – some days yes and some days no….we will see what the next few months brings.

    Default hi lovely girls.....

    i've been lurking, seeing how everyone has been going.... so awesome to see some BFP'S on our thread! Yeah!!!!

    I'm a bit flat, bugger, bum, *****, poo feeling.... going into last round of frosties and not very hopeful unfortunately; IVF has turned me into a cynical, suspicious, not hopeful person lately.... anyhoo i'll beat that out of myself by the end of the week...
    the reality is we'll be heading OS for ED me tinks; have tried pretty much everything else, so that's what we'll be doing next.... relocating to Syd in the next few months (work) so once 'Project Sydney' is complete we'll be able to focus back on 'Project Munchkin' : so i'll be hounding all those girls who have or are seeking OS donors for info, info, info.... god it's a full time job isn't it!!!!!
    Love you all
    xxx

    Here's a little joke for you all :
    Grandson: 'Grandpa, what's it like having sex when you are older'?
    Grandpa: 'Well it's a bit like playing pool with a rope!'

    Laughed and laughed - hope you do too!!!

    tens2many.... trying not to get your hopes up but that could be implantation pain..... ????

    andygee.
    .. sounds like you are having a plan... I have 3 friends doing ivf with donor eggs in the usa at the moment... Im sure that they will be happy to chat with you if you feel the need to ask any questions about their place..so far the feedback I have god is that CNY fertility is the best.

    cjm...it sounds like neither fs was particually enthusiastic.. some clinics hate us oldies as we drag their success stats down so they would rather not deal with us....sounds like you need to see Wazza..... and get your mojo back.

    sunny.
    ... I hope that your appointment goes well with wazza..he gives hope to those that other clinics have abandoned... my appointment is next friday and I am really looking forward to meeting him.

    lilbaby/ lilwish.
    .. welcome to the thread it is such a great place to feel loved, supported and welcome... our little caring community ..

    mammaliz... hanging out for your uss.... Im so excited

    jenkie...cant wait for your next uss too...

    lucky.... wow what a confusing result... I cant wait for you blood test... big hugs and lets hope that it is good news..


    has anyone heard from lily40? to see what happened with her and her son??


    well life continues... Im beginning to collect all my vitamins to start again and will get some dhea to take as well.... researching the best way to wean arabella..sigh... so sad.. and of course I have to collate all my cycles and results for waz to go through... and find the pics of all the embryos... anything that will help him.. as well as pack for my version of the tropics sunny...lol...we are due for snow this weekend so it will be nice to go somewhere warm...I actually dug out all my summer clothes I have not worn in 12months....thankfully I still fit them...so now its just a matter of shaving the heritage forests on my legs...lol.. oh the maintainence involved with warm climates....lol..lol...

    Just a quickie from me....

    cjm1 - I am astounded that FS/clinics won't treat certain people because of their age. You are only 42. If you said you were 52 then that might make a difference. But seriously, 42!!!! Shouldn't it be our choice to be treated by whichever specialist we choose. They get paid for goodness sake.

    me....pregnancy test in the am. The home pregnancy tests have left me feeling like it's just not going to happen for us this time. I've been wondering to myself if we should have one last shot but then I think maybe we're being greedy. Thank God for this forum. We've told no one this time and this is the only place I can vent/chat/etc.

    But...a bit of happy news today for me. A dear friend of mine gave birth to her little IVF baby this afternoon and I'm so happy for her, a little girl.

    Good night to you all, sweet dreams. I'll be back on here tomorrow some time with my good or bad news.

    Ciao

    Hi Sunny,
    I follow this thread and i am a patient of Wazza's.
    I just wanted to wish you luck and im sure you will love him.
    Im doing a cycle with him in Aug even though he told me my eggs are old and i can either retire/find a donor egg or take my chance a golden egg might come since i have had 4 children naturally conceived)
    I will be interested to see how your appointment goes.
    Good luck and enjoy Bris.
    cheers
    Mel
    Me 42 low AMH blocked tubes. 4 kids naturally conceived

    Lilwish – Welcome how are you? I think youll find this forum a wonderful source of support, advice and IVF friendship. Personally, I am super paranoid about wasting time – probably because I did waste so much time.& yet it is a fantastic idea to put your health in place and that can take 3 months. I did go down the acc track and it did nothing for me - in fact I got zero eggs! Then I decided to ditch that and instead replaced it with hypnosis and weekly massage - and I got pregnant. God knows what works, ha.

    Lilbirdy – Welcome. This forum is a wonderful place to swap stories, ask advice and find support.
    LucyAPA – Are you not feeling so confident with your HTP? I am so happy for your friend. Wonderful that IVF does give people success
    Litlybaby – Welcome. I have found this place to a wonderful source of support, IVF friendship and advice. Hopefully your stay on this forum will be short and sweet.
    Tens2many – I was on a similar protocol during the 2WW. I did have symptoms, but you cant trust anything I say as I always feel I am having symptoms. Being on underpant watch!I am also on underpants watch - but I am not sure why - IVF makes you go mad

    Sunny15 – Good luck with your appointment. Wow your time has come around quickly. I just came back from Brisbane, gosh the weather is nice there. Good luck
    Cjm1- Kept you waiting for 1.5 hours – that kind of stuff makes me so angry ! I think it all comes down to the FC & FS some places will see women 46+ .. so there are options for us more mature young ladies
    AndyGee – Hey Andy sorry to hear you are feeling a bit flat and cynical. I must say I feel that way at times – this cycle I went into I was convinced it would be the cycle to prove we were out of the the race only to become pregnant. So you just never, never know.
    Micca - Good luck with meeting Wazza next week. I hope he meets all your expectations
    ATM - Back from the funeral. It was intense and extremely sad. Had no problem with IVF medication at the airport, so that was good. So tired! My next BT is on Monday and already I am feeling slightly anxious. I know how quickly these things can turn around. To really push my self into a corner - I have just accepted a new position. Perhaps I am crazy - but I still dont believe this pregnancy will happen.
