Just thought i'd stick my head in and say hello - its been a while!
Firstly, congrats to everyone on their BFP's! What wonderful news. For those who didnt get the greatest news THIS TIME, Big hugs to you.
I'm feeling really down myself at the moment. I am trying so hard on my weightloss, have started metformin and Clomid 2 weeks ago and I'm just all over the place. At 129kg i know i need to continue the weighloss fight but due to this, i've convinced myself that not in a million years will IVF work and that i will never get that BFP i'm after.
We're booked in for ICSI in June. One minute i think - yep this can work and the next i think - nope, stats are all against obese women falling pregnant so of course it wont work.
To be honest, you BH girls keep me going and i do draw inspiration from your stories.
I know that PCOS is partly to blame for my weight etc, but really, can this be the one thing to stand in my way - the fact that i did stack on so much weight!?
Sorry to rant but i really needed too!
Hugs and baby dust to all!! Lets keep up the good fight - even when it does drag us down......

Just a quick one from me
Ellymoe- Good luck with this cycle
Zammy26- I am glad you are feeling yourself again I hope it works for you too IVf is pretty invasive fingers crossed things will keep looking up.
Kellijh- Congrats on O'ing and good luck I have my FX for you. Just remember dont let them get you down weight or no weight it can work I am a bigger girl as well I started out at 135kgs and lost 13 kgs but my FS said my weight was not a factor he said as long as I was eating well enough and being positive we would get there it is just some of the doctors and nurses that have a weight bias he said fertility and MC have around the same numbers regardless of weight and people can use the data to make one look worse than the other so be positive you will get there.
With pcos The naturopath I went to said the way in wich it affects your weight is that most peoples bodies gear up for a cycle and we gain some water weight and then once we have had the cycle the bodies responce is to lose the weight but with pocs our bodies gear up but dont get there so as the condition worsens you get less and less nad hold on more weight I found it pretty interesting she said the best thing to do was breathing excercises streaching and cardio and drink loads of water.she was a very interesting lady.
AFM- Well my Blood test is on Thursday morning but I will not get the results til friday afternoon it seems slack to me but I am so excited, I tested last friday to see if there was any pregnal left in my system BFN so that was good no pregnal left I am a bit of a POAS addict so I tested again on Monday with a normal FR HPT and got a very faint BFP so I bought a FRER and tried again in the afternoon and it was a BFP very clear I nearly fell over I never thought to see those two lines so I am trying not to get too excited till I get the blood results but it looks like a to me I am going to test again tomorrow morning to see if it get darker
so loads of to you all

Lissa that sounds very promising!
I too try not to get excited about things, even just possible O pain because I hate being disappointed when I find out it wasn't happening. But your test results so far would be hard not to get excited about I imagine! Please let us know on Friday!

I wont get down - after all it is on Clomid Cycle #1! lol Am getting all the AF signs I sometimes wish she's just come already and put me out of my misery! Wow, your results seem very promising!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I really wasn't planning on writing this anytime very soon as we were planning to start IVF next month, but...
got my bfp
I'm 16dpo (oh- actually 4w2d!) and did a bt this morning as I had the trigger injection and Pregnyl (which both give false pos on hpt). FS said hcg over 100 is great and mine was 732!
I had a tiny bit of spotting on Monday so I thought AF was starting, and I felt the most classic PMT symptoms I've had for months - so was pretty surprised. I don't feel pregnant at all yet. Fingers crossed for a sticky bub!
Thank you to all of you wonderful ladies for your help and support I hope you don't mind me popping my head in every once in awhile to celebrate your much deserved bfps when you get them.
Lissa - maybe we'll be in the same due thread... Big fingers crossed for you.
Cazigurl, Sammy, Zammy - extra lots of babydust to all of you who've been around regularly since I joined last year
Dr Ladydee - my cycle and Clomid buddy from day 1 - you are next!!! I have all my fingers crossed for your IUI cycle. I can't wait to see you post your bfp - you'll absolutely get there
Hello to everyone else - sorry for the lack of personals to the last few days of posts. Wishing you all the best of luck.

That's fabulous Windupbird!
Hope everything works out and you get your #1!
As for me, I am thinking I may have ovulated when I thought, usually my temp in the morn is around 36.5 and shows very little variation, yesterday was 36.62, today was 36.78........trying not to get excited, but if it is still higher tomorrow I may not be able to help myself
24-03-2011 21:56 #30
