Huge post just lost it! Will now go for a condensed version of the original, sorry ladies.
EO, I'm so sorry that this cycle hasn't gone as you'd hoped and you are feeling disappointed It's amazing how much they can vary, my 1st I had 14 eggs got 5 blasts and the 2nd cycle had 8 eggs and ending having to transfer the only surviving embie on day 3...WTF!!? I have used pregnyl twice for stims and one occasion AF was late, the other one on time.
I do admire your strenth in picking yourself back up, arming yourself with knowledge and moving forward positively with the next plan. But you won't need to because you will be UTD!!! Thinking of you tomorrow for bt gorgeous. I know lots of people have already suggested things but is your DH also having acupuncture?
Lindylou, whereabouts in the US? What a great job you have, does your DH ever get to go with you? Hope the weigh in went well You are right we were in Niseko and I spent my b'day in Sapporo, interesting town!
PinkB, sorry have already asked you this on over 35's thread, any update on your cycle??
Nat, HUGE CONGRATULATIONS on your engagement, so exciting!
Crofty, I also have the grinding problem. My chiro sent me to an orthodonist for assessment several years ago when she couldn't fix my chronic headaches and neck pain. So ended up with very expensive mouthguard but it has done the trick! Are you cycling again soon?
Quartz, great to hear your FET is underway Also very sorry to hear about your cousin, just devastating the destruction earthquakes can cause
A very big to you for Tuesday, another Pisces Princess!
MrsDaisy, hope you are feeling ok after the move and settling in well How did your FS appt go this week?
Hi to everyone else
AFM, back safe and sound from Japan and already feeling buried under work, arrrrgh! I have had to stop watching the commercial tv coverage in Australia of the quake I find it too distressing, and out of keeping with my experience whilst inside the country of a very worried but calm and hopeful population. I am really feeling for the beautiful people of Japan and hoping the universe will deliver them safely from nuclear disaster.
Have a great weekend all , looks like a wet one and unfortunately I have a mountain of washing to do from our trip!

Hi ladies! Thankyou all for your congratulations! I've got SO much going on right now. Just moved house, and won't get the Net connected till Wednesday so it's phone posts only from me! Planning our engagement party, then my DDs party 2 weeks after that, then trying to fit in a FET somewhere, oh and DF and I are buying a house in the next month or so..... It's great in a way that I can't focus everything on having a baby, cause then I'll forget about everything else I've got to do!
EO - I hope you're feeling ok today. I've only had a pregnyl shot once, back in my first ever cycle at WFC but I can't remember how it made me feel. Hope your little embie is snuggling in nicely!!
Starfish - glad to see you're home and made it out of Japan. The world is becoming such a scary place, and my heart truly goes out to everyone affected by all these random acts of nature. Makes me ever so thankful that I live here! So lucky..
Hi to everyone else! I will catch up with proper personals when I get my Internet back up and running! Off to go party shopping today. DF is away till Sunday next week, so I've got to distract myself. Going to hire marquee, tables, chairs etc. Lots of fun!!

EO- wow, BMI of 17.5 is super slim, you could be a model at that size . One of my besties from school was naturally very slim and tried so hard to gain weight. She could eat Maccas and drink 1L of coke every day, and still didn't put on a single kilo! Speaking of which, we didn't weigh in at boot camp last week, its happening next week instead. Glad you're getting some helpful info in your other thread, but hope it all goes on hold because you'll be PG this cycle. One week left til BT!
Quartz- so sorry to hear about your cousin . I was in NZ when that quake struck and it chilled me to hear of the lives lost. We just never know when our time's up, do we? On a brighter note, yay for FET next week! Hope your b'day celebrations pass on some good vibes to your embie
Starf1sh- so glad you're home safe! The coverage of the Japan crisis is very distressing , hopefully the nuclear plant is back under control soon. My US trip will take me to Baton Rouge (Louisiana), St Louis (Missouri) and Salt Lake City (Utah)... quite a bit of ground to cover! Unfortunately DH can't come with me, so he gets to be a bachelor the 8-9 weeks a year that I'm away.
Nat- gosh, I'm tired just reading about how busy you are! Good luck with house hunting, party planning and getting back online.
PinkB- hope your follie count is looking good! Do you have an EPU date yet?
Hi to all the other Sydney girls , hope you're having a nice weekend.
AFM- finally got around to finishing my paintings from the workshop the other week, pics are here for anyone who'd like a peek ( that rhymes!)http://www.bubhub.com.au/community/f...p?albumid=3175
Its OK to laugh, I'll never be a Monet or Van Gogh! Going to a concert with friends tomorrow night, Grinspoon and Stone Temple Pilots , can't wait!
21-03-2011 07:35 #264
Lindylou, You are going to be a busy bee! Both yours and DH's pictures are GREAT!! I'm impressed I don't have an artistic bone in my body How was the concert?
EO, have just realised in my semi jet lagged state I tried to bring your 2ww forward a week and miscalculated your bt! Perhaps I was just wishing this for you How are you going hun?
Wow what a wet weekend (and week) we are having Sydney girls, for me it was soooo nice to snuggle up on the couch with DH and just watch movies. Hope you're warm and dry wherever you are and sending much to all.

EO – hope you are travelling OK! I am sorry to hear you had none to freeze – unfortunately I understand that predicament all to well – its horrible. But truly hoping your great little blasty is ready to hold on tight and go the distance! I hope the rest of your TWW goes smoothly. Oh and my AF has always been a few days late on pregnyl.
Starfish – J Sounds Like the perfect weekend - movies and cuddles!!! Hope ur travelling well
Quartz – happy birthday and good luck for for your FET. Fingers crossed for you!
Nat – lots of lovely distractions – enjoy them all J
Lindylou – your paintings are awesome! Enjoy your concerts!
Hope you all didn’t get too wet today! My shoes stayed wet all day after getting drenched this morning – gross!
AFM – Day 3 into FSH jabs and have now added sazien with BT booked for Wednesday. Started on the prednisone and feel like I am buzzing – feels like I have had a lot of coffee (and its been 6 years since i had one for real!). Feeling quite awake at night now with pred plus DHEA. So much fun!!!!
22-03-2011 13:28 #266
Starfish: Thanks honey, would be great to skip the TWW and do the BT early but its not too bad, only 4 sleeps to go so that will go quick enough. Its 4 more nights I can lay in bed and believe I could be UTD. DH has never done acu before but I have heard good things about it and I think it is something he would like to do so we are also going to get him onto that as well as all the vitamins. So how is everything with you going? Are you guys looking at starting another cycle again soon? Have you met with your FS to see what there could be to change for your next one? Your DHEA should def be kicked in now so you should have a great increase in egg quality. Can’t wait to see how you go with your new batch of eggies.
Lindylou: Yeah my mum is also really tiny, I find putting weight on quite hard to do, although the only thing I have ever noticed that makes me put it on quickly is alcohol. This isn’t always a good thing, my FS has tried to get me to put on 4 kg’s since I met him and the maximum I can manage is 2kg, I want to do it the right way – not by eating maccas and junk. Have you had your weigh in this week yet? Also seen your pics of your paintings – they are awesome; I would never have guessed that they were your first attempt. Are you guys gonna keep going to any more classes? Also have you had your follow up appointment about your Thyroid issues yet? Sorry I can’t remember when the date for this was.
PinkButterfly: Thanks darl, I didn’t want to rely on the no show AF as a pg indicator so glad I know about it now. Its so disappointing not having frosties, although my clinic say 60% success on fresh and only 30% on frozen so I guess it’s the fresh ones we are always hoping the most for. Goodluck for your BT tomorrow, wow had no idea those drugs would make you feel great – I always just expected they would make us feel extra sleepy/bloated/moody etc. Is this your first cycle with the pred, saizen and DHEA?
Nat: So glad you have had heaps on to distract yourself with everything that’s been happening. I hope you have a fab time at your DD party, that’s one of the things I always have looked forward to about having kids is their little parties. Are you doing any type of theme? Have you spoken tot yur FS about what is going to be changed for your next cycle?
Quartz: Sorry to hear about your cousin darl. Such a horrible thing to go through. How is your cycle going? Do you have a date for your transfer yet? I had a look though the March thread but its so big I may have missed it.
AFM: 4 sleeps till BT, really not feeling too confident with this cycle. Pregynl should be out of my system today so im interested to see what symptoms stick around. So far i have heaps of constipation and bloating and a few AF cramps. One thing i have noticed is i have lots of creamy CM. Not sure if i have had this before as it has always been masked by the pessaries or crinone. One thing that i wanted to tell you ladies about that is slightly embarrassing..........i woke up this morning having an Orgasm in my sleep!!!! I have NEVER in my life had this happen, i kind of remember being close to this in my first stim cycle so i am guessing its cause our bodies are pumped with hormones. Has anyone else had something similar happen?

Hi Sydney Girls just a quick one from me today.... have a million things to do before heading out for dinner.
PB - Thank you for the birthday wishes. I had a lovely day and was very spoilt (especially by my mum who surprised me by telling me she is taking me on a mystery overseas holiday in August!! )
EO - I know what you mean about the March thread, it is way tooooo big for me to even keep up in there. I find there are so many posts every day that if I miss a couple of days it is impossible to catch up!
AFM..... I had my FET today. They only had to thaw one embryo to get a good one and it had 100% cell survival so I was really happy with that. Am now in the dreaded TWW which is actually extend a couple of days as my BT was due 3/4 but I am going away to my sisters 21st so not able to take it until the 5/4!!! This one is a sticky one!!!
24-03-2011 08:11 #268
Quartz: Congrats on the great thaw of your embie darl, i have everything crossed for you for this cycle and hope the TWW doesn't drag too much for you .
Well I caved and done 2 hpt, 1 last night and another today and both were BFN. I don’t know why I am so surprised with the result given how bad this cycle has been from the start. I have moved my BT to tomorrow. I am absolutely shattered, why does this keep happening???? I am supposed to be fine fertility wise and we are only doing IVF due to my DH. I am going to speak to my FS on Tuesday and then will be changing to a new FS for our next cycle (at the FS advice). We are going to have to wait until July now as we need three months in between each of DH biopsy’s and also need to save some more money. This is so ****ing hard, I haven’t been able to stop crying and now I am supposed to be at work today and pretend like nothing has happened. It just feels like my whole world stopped yesterday, the break is going to kill me.
25-03-2011 01:29 #269
EO I truly feel for you. I hope that the change in FS and the short break will make all the difference for you.
Hi to everyone else. I hope everything is plodding along nicely.
AFM, I feel like Im in my own nightmare. I honestly am so confused, and I haven't even started taking any of the drugs.
My DH and I have had such a bad run of things in the last 4 years, and in the last month the reality of starting IVF or having kids is really freaking me out. For us it may mean the decision between having kids or a house, possibly not both or neither. I was so happy when I found that the RPAH Fertility Unit was so cheap compared to most other clinics I cried with joy, but even now, the thought of going through endless cycles at such a cost financially and to my health and mental wellbeing terrifies me.
Have I just got cold feet?
I'm a total planner and love having control. Could this be why I feel so stressed and worried? IVF doesn't allow you to control much, not your hormones, body or finances.
Sorry for my freak out, but I've had 90 minutes sleep, and I've been trying to talk to DH for the last month or so about my fears and he is so layed back and chilled out (my total opposite, god love him) that he just says, lets just give it a go, we'll be ok.
But I am truly worried that we will never be able to buy a house, travel or have kids. The things most people take for granted, and I want it all .
So sorry for going on.
25-03-2011 17:03 #270
MrsDaisyP - I'm a total planner too, and I totally understand your angst. I'm lucky enough to have 1 DD, and I sometimes panic that I won't be able to give her a sibling (she has a half-brother from her dad knocking up the first girl he slept with after I left... ANYWAY...). I HATE knowing that I can't control this, I can't control my emotions or my body. I try to take it one day at a time, but I simply can't. I'd say you just have cold feet. Try a cycle, and see how you go. You will always regret NOT having a go....
EternalOptimist - How was your BT today? Any little surprises? I'm so sorry you're having such a hard time. And the worst part is definitely the WAITING in between things.. Like we don't have to wait long enough! I hope you can find something to distract you with!
Quartz - for being in the 2ww. Even though it drives me bonkers, I love knowing there is a potential bubba floating around in there. How are you feeling?
PinkButterfly - How are you going? How was the BT on Wed?
to Lindylou, Starf1ish and anyone I may have missed!
Well... AFM... Still waiting to go back to my FS on Tuesday. This D&C has really mucked my body around. I've been bleeding on and off since I had it. Started bleeding heavy again yesterday morning, then its backed off again. Meh.. I have no idea whats going on! Engagement party plans are coming along nicely, its on the 7th of May at lunchtime. Theres an open day at the function centre I want to go to for my reception, so I'm going to have a sticky beak there tomo at 1pm.. I have a bridesmaid meeting on Sunday. And my DF comes home sometime on the weekend!! So busy.. Then next week I've got appts to go see about getting our home loan now that our deposit is in my bank! I don't even have time to think about IVF right now... Hoping to have a FET soon and pop out a baby before my wedding next year!!
Have a great weekend everything xoxoxo
