Star - I've been thinking of you and hope you are holding up ok. Make the most of drinking coffee, wine and eating all the cheeses and meats at the moment because I just know that you will be UTD with a sticky bub very, very soon. I honestly have that strong feeling that it is going to work for you. I know the wine and cheeses are only a small consolation but I use to find they helped as long as i told myself I wouldnt be having them for much longer. Take care of yourself hun. xxx
Haydos - I hope your scan goes well on Monday and that your EPU can go ahead on Wednesday, you definetly deserve a break in this whole process. Thinking of you and sending "grow, grow, grow" vibes to your embies.
Marzi - How are you going hun? I've been thinking of you, when is your BT?
Lilbirdy - I think 9dpo is too early to test, I hope your poas shows a lovely double line if you test again on 12dpo. Sorry I cant help with any PCOS info, hopefully someone else can.
I hope everyone else is doing well xx

Lilbirdy - how's your tww going? Have you poas again or waiting until Thurs? Fingers crossed for you
Did you have any luck with your GP about your PCO/insulin question? I'm borderline PCO and am a bit overweight despite not eating that badly and lately have cut out sugar (including the hidden sugars in processed foods) and am finding the weight is falling off so am assuming this is possibly due to insulin issues. Just a guess though and I have no idea if it contributes to our infertility issues.
Lilybaby - how're you going? Mustn't be long now until your scan?
Starf1sh and Jamison - hope you are both going ok! x
Afm - well I'm now having an EPU on Friday! That's insane, I think I forgot to let my body know this is an Antagonist cycle and it's meant to take just over 2 weeks for EPU not 3. Will lose the first cohort but hopefully still have some good eggs. Still very excited/nervous about trying PICSI as its pretty much our last hope.
Hope everyone is taking it easy in the lead up to Christmas and that those of us not pregnant yet can avoid well intentioned but insensitive people over the holidays.

Lilbirdy, Congrats!!! Over a very important hurdle. for great numbers on Thursday.
Haydos, you must be feeling relaxed if EPU snuck up on you! Hope it's a good sign for things to come!
Loveabug, hope you are doing ok
Jamison, I think my DH just might kill me if I lashed out on a pair on Jimmy Choo's at this point Even though I'm sure I would look fabulous!! Sometimes on this long journey (between the cycle costs and necessary post cycle retail therapy) I wonder if bankruptcy or insanity will get me 1st!
Thanks lovely Lily for your thoughts and encouragement Your 12 wk scan must be soon??
I think I will need a little bit more time to lick my wounds before I put my Comeback Queen boots on! (I smiled at that one Frosty! ) Hope the bedrest is not driving you completely
to all the long term gals...time for a few more ladders please!

Hi to all the other lovely ladies
afm, I've had a bit of a scare this week. Tuesday arvo I had brown discharge/bleeding and of course totally freaked out. I ended up coming home from work early and was given the rest of the week off by my boss who I had to tell I was pregnant since I was bawling in her office. I ended up having a scan this morning at my Ob's and everything was perfect thank goodness. Bub still has a strong heartbeat and has grown 1cm in the past 6 days. Ob was very reassuring and said all is fine, she checked my uterus and couldnt see a reason for bleeding so thinks it must be a cervix irritation - didnt want to check though in case she caused more irrritation. Still have some brown blood when I wipe after going to the loo but (touch wood) nothing in my pants since Tuesday. Such a scary, scary time though. Frosty I dont know how you've coped with all you've been through with your bleeding and bed rest, I've just had a small episode the last couple days and can not believe how scared I've been - you are very strong.

lilybaby---Glad everything has settled down. Won't it be easy if we get a smooth sailing pregnancy like everyone else too seeing that it took us so much trouble to get there in the first place? I have to put on my calm hat and kept telling myself what will be will be, I'm receiving the best possible care, but there's nothing anyone can do to stop the bad things happening if it's going to happen. And surely I *can't* be that unlucky so many times? Things seem to have settled down for me too, haven't bled for over 2 weeks now. (touch wood). Feeling very tired all the time, went and had a blood test and found I'm a bit iron deficient and my haemoglobin has dropped by 20 since the beginning of the pregnancy. So I've started taking some iron tablets and re-started the Berocca to get some energy back. Just as well I don't have to work but I'm getting really bored.

Congratulations Marzi!!!! Fingers crossed this is IT honey!
Lilbirdy, I did read your numbers were good and had doubled! Awesome news!
Lily, oh hon what an awful scare! Glad to hear ultrasound showed bub is thriving and hoping things stay nice and calm in there!
Frosty, wonderful to hear that things have settled for you also. Geez if there was any justice in the universe you'd think an 'easy', straightforward pregnancy (where we all look and feel amazing ) should be guaranteed after all the effort to make these precious bubs!
Haydos, how did EPU go yesterday??
Jamison, Loveabug, Felicita
