    LuckyAPA – Have you only had one cycle since your last child and that resulted in a BFN? for myself, if I had only one unsuccessful cycle, that would not be definitive enough for me to not try again. I would personally need at least 3 cycles with zero result before I felt I had no options. Then again - I do love to bang my head against the wall. I think getting lucky first cycle - is quite rare? and extremely lucky. I have to say I like Micca suggestion – if this pregnancy does not work for me – I may try what she is suggesting ! I tried Human growth hormone, DHEA & Melatonin to improve my egg quality
    Deb11 – Oh how exciting you have started your cycle. How is it all going? I stopped using DHEA after EPU
    Lilwish – oh what is the diference btw Japanese and Chinese acc - ? Oh so nice for you to take the pressure off for abit.
    Tens2many – Oh I am so sorry to hear of your pain . How are you feeling today?

    Lilybaby- Thank you for your well wishes. I think every new bench mark I reach, just makes me nervous about the next one. I am trying to relax and enjoy where I am at. Love that you had a wonderful time away with your DP ! We all need to just enjoy ourselves every now and then, something I think we often forget about while doing IVF


    ATM – Had cramping last night – was a little freaked by this. DP assures me this is normal. Feeling quite awful today – ie morning sickness? But if it is morning sickness – then that is great !! Tomorrow is the BT – and Friday is the scan. DP and I are scared ****less . What if.... oh sorry - no heart beat... not viable

    Hi everyone,

    micca....thanks for the information regarding when to stop taking DHEA, and also taking B12 and vitamin D. You seem to have so much knowledge. Did I read somewhere in the forum that you have a medical background? I am currently taking vitamin D and will speak to my GP regarding the B12 shot.

    lilwish.......you are right. It is hard to know what to do. What works and what doesn't. There is so much information out there and it gets confusing. It is hard to know what to believe.

    tens2many........how are you?Hope you are okay Try to say positive. It is not over for you yet. Little Archie was proof that you can get pregnant. I'm sure you will again.

    lilybaby.......thanks for the kind words. I'm trying to stay positive. My last cycle (and first ) was cancelled due to poor response....one follicle only. I hope I respond better this time.

    luckyAPA.......how are you Sorry to hear about your BFN. I think the 5 regarding your egg reserve that your nurse was talking about was your AMH. Anything below 10 is bad. But a 5 at the age of 45 is great. My AMH is 3. I am 43. I would definitely keep trying if I was you. I wish I had the same response as you regarding the amount and quality of eggs. You are amazing!

    AFM.....looking forward to starting my cycle on Tuesday. Rather nervous though about the BT and scan on the 14th. What if I only have one follicle again. Should I proceed with EPU? It is hard to know what to do. I know it only takes one, but my chances aren't great with only the one. Has anyone else been in my situation? Has anyone been successful with going on to ET after only having one follicle - had one follicle, gone on to EPU, and had it survive and then transferred?

    LuckyAPA - The decision on whether to try again should be made following discussion with your FS however, given you had a good number of eggs, it is probably worth one more go. When I changed over to the mini IVF my FS and I agreed that we would try twice if the first one was unsuccessful but not continue on endlessly wasting money if the second one wasn't successful either. Given neither were I have now given up. He indicated that my lack of fertilisation/failed survival of embryo for both cycles was due to the age of my eggs and therefore it is unlikely to change in the future.

    Tens2many - Don't give up hope yet. I have never POAS as I didn't want to get a false reading. I understand how important "your last chance" is a I have very recently gone through mine but I believe you should ride it out until you BT and see what happens. I cannot imagine how much worse ending your dream would be for you than it has been for me given your history but if this is the end of the road for you, you will get through it with the love and support of your DH. I will have everything crossed for you in the meantime.

    Deb11 - I have gone to EPU each time with no more than 2 or 3 follicles evident on scan and have nearly always ended up with at least 3 eggs available for fertilisation. Most of the doctors that specialise in older women will take what they can get as one is all it takes. I know it is much cheaper for you to cancel and try again but if you have a second cycle with only one visable, I would request the FS to take it anyway and see what happens.

    Mammalinz - good luck with your scan.

    Sunny - how did you get on last week?

    Hi to everyone else.

    Deb11 – I think even if you have one follicle you should still go for it, as if you don’t, you’ll always wonder…. What if. That alone could drive you nuts – last cycle was my worst follicle count, but best ever egg pick – so you cant be 100% with what you get in the scan, anyway. Now I am pregnant… so you just never, never know
    Ten2many – sounds like you are having a nightmare of a time. My implantation bleed was day 10 ! I was convinced it was AF. I agree with Otgirl – I did a HPT on my DP's birthday … you may recall it was negative. I wrecked his birthday, stopped taking all the medication (thank god only for one day) only to find out I was pregnant. Hang in there. Nothing is final till you get a BT
    Otgirl – how are you ? I have been thinking about you and how you and your DP are going?
    ATM – Thought it was BT day, turns out is isn’t. We don’t need to do another BT. FC has told us good bye, so long, see you later - or until this pregnancy fails . Scan is on WEDNESDAY. Scared, nervous and anxious. This has been the longest 7 weeks of my life! The cramping is kind of gone and I haven’t had any spotting. Feel terribly nauseous and eating like a horse (which I know isn’t good). Stopped drinking coffee completely – which I am surprised at. Went for my massage this morning – thought I should let them know I ‘might,’ be pregnant. They went crazy. No way am I allowed to have a massage during the first trimester – they then were screaming about (my secret pregnancy) throughout the store – it was horrific. !!! Everyone coming up to me.... OMG it was awful, especially when I have not acknowledged the pregnancy myself. To think I have had two massages – one after transfer and the other one a week or two ago – it is a miracle I am still pregnant.

    special hello to lilybaby,cjm1,lilwish wishingHoping and any1 I may have missed


    AFM- Pretty rough nite again was so sure AF gunna show her ugly ugly face but nothing yet not holding out any hope tho as the AF pains are quiet painful and spotting began last night TMI- pink and white everytime I wipe and I weakened and POAS at 3pm today and the words "not pregnant" came up within 1 minute........unless a god dam miracle happens its all over for us DH does not wish to be cut a 4th time and I have to respect that as it was so PAINFUL 4 him....i would never tell him this as i can only share this with you ladies but i hope i dont end up bitter and resentful towards him in years to come because as much as i hate the ivf rollercoaster ride i would go right to the end...that end being told i have no eggs and even then id probably still go 1 more just to be safe.In the back of my mind i still always have the thoughts what if id tried this or that what if the next ones "the" one.... i always had a very clear vision that we would not be keeping Archie we would however share a girl well before we even looked like losing him....

    cheers

    Tens2many - I'm so sorry I just reread the posts from the last few days and realised I read your post wrong. I'm so sorry I thought you'd started your af already, I hope my post didnt upset you . I just read you'd asked about implantation bleeding at 9 days past a 2 day transfer? If you are only 9 or 10 days past a 2 day ET I think that might be too early to show a result. My clinic says implantation will happen anything from 1-3 days after a 5 day transfer so then if you are allowing a few days for hcg to be detected I would give yourself a bit more time for hcg to show up. I hope that makes sense? I really think and hope your poas today is still too early. When is your BT? I have everything crossed that the spotting you've had is implantation and that it either slows right down or will stop altogether. Fingerscrossed you will get good news on BT day. Take care

    Back later for more personals, gotta go cook tea.

    Hi girls,

    so much to catch up on...

    [COLOR="rgb(255, 0, 255)"]mammalinz[/COLOR] - good luck with your scan wed. It will be such a relief to see that all is ok. Glad the cramps have stopped - I found that drove me crazy with worry too - and no spotting is good news. Lucky you mentioned poss preg for the massage. I've always been told that too -nothing in 1st trimester, so get paranoid about even DH rubbing my shoulders, etc.

    [COLOR="rgb(255, 0, 255)"]tens[/COLOR] - have you called your FC to let them know of your spotting, etc? It's enough to send anyone mad! I'm so sorry you feel its the end of the line. I don't know how I will come to that conclusion when the time comes... I feel my DH and I may not agree, cos although we've both said if it doesn't happen this year, that's it, I just don't know how I'll stop wanting to try one more time. Sounds like you've had some kind of spiritual feeling that may know better though.... I hope so

    [COLOR="rgb(255, 0, 255)"]deb11[/COLOR] - don't start thinking about how badly your cycle is going to go.... you haven't even started yet, so think the best - they reckon positive thinking gives positive energy... My final scan b4 EPU showed 7 or maybe 8 eggs, but they got 11! so you never know what that extra day or 2 can do.

    [COLOR="rgb(255, 0, 255)"]lucky[/COLOR] - I hope you're feeling a bit better. it takes time to pick up from such a huge blow, and it seems to get harder every time, but give yourself time to heal a bit before you make any definitive decisions.

    lilybaby - What a lovely weekend retreat. We definitely do need these little getaways and spoilings to cope with what this whole ttc puts us through. My DH is planning a weekend in the mountains with a fireplace for a few weeks time (we look forward to real winter weather so we can have a fire, since we're in sunny Bris still in mid-20s).

    Hi to all of you other lovelies

    AFM - for those asking about Jap acup, it's only early days but so far I've noticed that I need to go more often: when AF starts, before & after O, and in between - just not the week before AF. No herbs are needed to supplement, which suits me because I was concerned they may interfere with my prolactin meds. With Chin acup she put needles in, then left me to rest for an hour, whereas with Jap acup, she puts some in for a few mins, takes them out and puts in elsewhere, and so on, then sometimes leaves some for a while. chin acup was all on front side - belly, ankles, wrists, etc, however Jap acup was on front, then roll over and in back too. she also give me a but of a massage too. I love the acup for the relaxation if nothing else, like you said, Lilybaby.
    I know when I did the Chin acup for 5 mths I felt it didn't work and was getting impatient, so that's why I stopped and started IUI with FS. Is it coincidence or not that that's the only time I fell preg... no more acup & no more preg since. I'll def continue throughout my IVF cycle this time to hopefully improve my odds.
    I'll keep you posted ...

    Firstly hi to everyone, and secondly I apologise that this is going to be a me post.....I have been MIA due to the huge financial problems we are having and just haven't had the opportunity to post until now. My poor DH has had a breakdown and was taken to hospital last night and has been admitted. My weekend was horrific to say the least, at 3am on Saturday morning DH started ranting that I had to kill him and that he was going to take DD at 3am to his parents house as we had to get out of the house. He has been extremely stressed by the financial situation, and I had been tolerating all the goings on and trying to protect DD as much as possible, but this was just too much. I called his sister and she came over and I left the house with DD and stayed at my sisters place for the weekend. I had to return home on Sunday afternoon as our accountant was suppose to be coming over to go through things, but unfortunately due to a death in his family, didn't show. DH was just over the top with anxiety, his sister and cousin said I should call the Dr, which I did, and then the ambulance took him to hospital. So here I am with my scan tomorrow and no DH to come with me......this was not the way it was meant to be. I feel so lost at the moment. I am trying to sort out all the financial stuff, look after DD and try and keep her life as normal as possible, and deal with this pregnancy..... I hope tomorrow brings some good news as I don't think I will be able to cope if it's bad.

    Sending everyone lots of
