DD, you have every single right to be upset and tired of trying, it's no surprise you feel depressed. I felt the same way after both of my unsuccessful ETs, and every other month, as I bet the rest of us in here do/did. Yes, I agree, taking a month off (or how long you need) will be good for you until you and your DH are ready to try again .
AFM I have postponed my next ICSI cycle until I see my new FS - I really want a 2nd opinion. If I listened to my previous FS I would be on the pill right now getting ready for all those fun injections, but I just have this gut feeling that if I don't get my scarring fixed then this cycle would have been for nothing. I'm seeing a female FS this time (sexist, I know) in hope she will show more compassion and understanding. I am eager to hear what she has to say about my scarring or anything in general and will be more than happy to share her advice. My appointment is on Friday 17th June, but I don't want to get my hopes up because I did that last time and just felt deflated afterwards. Having surgery to remove the scar tissue also scares the hell out of me too but what option do we have? If this is the miracle cure we are looking for then let's try it I say.
Hello to you all, what else is everyone up to lately?

DD dont appologise for being a downer. I can only imagine what it is you go through each time you have ETs. If you are depressed please seek help, even if its only to talk to us in here. Talking helps, believe me, I have suffered badly from depression for years and its not fun. I'm glad DS gives you the motivation to get out of bed.
Mum2chris, hopefully your new FS can give you some new ideas. Surgery sounds scaring have no idea what it involves, but the idea of having a repeat c-sect scares me. Good luck

DD - it sucks, my witch arrived on the 28th too so only a 9 day luteal phase so something else to add to the joy NOT. Keep trying hon, things have to pick up for you, it's a long rollercoaster and costs a bomb but just try to take each cycle at a time.
Krissy - Exciting, waiting for your news, not long now... how are you feeling??
mumtochris - IKWYM re the fertility specialist, my second FS was a female and she was so understanding and amazing, she had a plan and the plan worked and so I have DD. I am same as you not sexist as I love my male obgyn, he's the best and wouldn't go anywhere else for a birth but him.

hi bosco- how have you been?
dd- hugs, hope you are feeling a bit better hun! ttc takes a toll on everything maybe you could just talk to someone about it? I wish fertility treatment was free or I had money to help mummys out it's so expensive xoxo.

oh Monnie - so happy for you, you have made such a big life change but so happy it's going well. Excellent re the TTC, that will be awesome..
I'm doing ok, have one more cycle left before the new FS so hope I don't need to see him. This cycle I only had a 9 day luteal phase so disappointed. Wondering why I fell pg on after 2 cycles of trying last year ... now nothing since the D&C in November...

Welcome to the newbies nice to share this journey with you and good luck getting your BFP asap.
Shelby and Flicker - how are those little men in your lives? Being good to their mums I hope and sleeping like angels Hope you girls are doing ok too.
Krissy - good luck for the arrival of your wee one - hope it all goes well and am looking forward to hearing your announcement
Anyone else due soon - bestest of luck
Monnie - lovely to hear all is going well with new DP - yay him being clucky and TTC just around the corner!
Bosco - stupid short LP! Hope your FS fixes that for you quick smart, though you don't have to see your FS as you'll be UTD instead
Mumtochris - Good on you for following your gut feeling re the scar tissue - hopefully it can get all sorted out with minimal surgery and you get your BFP soon as
DD hope life is treating you ok this week. Be kind to yourself and never give up - its not a matter of if you will get another baby but WHEN
Hi to everyone else - Woowoo, Reney, Second etc
AFM - had acupuncture again last week (only cost half of what it did last time thank goodness) and it went really well, have subsequently O'd and tried to catch that freakn egg - who know if we were successful but if not it wasn't from lack of trying!
I don't have high hopes as its been 18 months TTC now with not a single BFP *sigh* which is pretty cr@p if you ask me and actually quite unacceptable and I'm thinking the baby gods need a good kick up the behind!
I'm off to the FS on Monday - for no reason other than she likes to take my $ - as far as she's concerned my options are either IUI or IVF - will go and see her anyway to get referral for bloods to check thyroid levels.
Anyone doing Gabriela Rosa's 14 days to optimum fertility?? If not then its worth a look ladies - check it out at natural fertility breakthrough - I've been following it and its quite eye opening in regards to chemicals in the home, what food to avoid, tests you should ask your doctor for and exercise needed - I'd love to think that by making the changes she advocates we all get our BFP's - anythings worth a try!
One of my best friends who is pregnant just found out she's having twins (already has 2 girls) so that is very exciting - she'll have enough babies for everyone to play with Have given her all my maternity clothes - can't see myself needing them in the near future after all & I'm trying to do a bit of a "murphy's law" thing here as have given away all my baby clothes as well, in the hope that I ironically get UTD now that I have no stuff...please let this ridiculous theory work!

Sorry, have been mia for a while...
DD - huge big hugs for you, so sorry to hear it didn't work this time around. Please take the time you need to heal, and try again when you are ready.
Monnie - thats so exciting for you and your new man!! Good luck for the next few months!
Hi to the rest of you, and positive ttc vibes to all!!
AFM - my waters broke on the 24th of May, and had a c-section 3 days before my scheduled date of the 27th. Amelia Jade and Benjamin Charles made their way into the world at 9.29 and 9.30am. 3.12 and 2.6 kilos respectively... (sorry, can't remember the pounds)
Both are doing really well so far, apart from having day and night confused, which makes night time really long!!!
