Millie - Thanks. I have a whole arsenal of different tests to use but I think I am going to lock them away for a few days
M2O - Thanks heaps for that it was very helpful
I think I had already rationalised that it was a stupid thing to do pretty much as soon as I had done it!!!
Curiosity just won out this morning I'm afraid.
I am going to wait until the end of the week to try again, even though my head will be wrecked and I'll have no nails left

M2O - Sorry I had to run in last post before I could say I am sorry re the BFN and I hope AF arrives soon so you can get on to another cycle.
This is such a rollercoaster and most of us have been through so much before we even get here.
I did everything that 4 different specialists advised me over the years and then finally got this one that said I should have gone straight to IVF years ago!! I'm 38 now and so I stress that my clock is ticking way too fast.
Personally I'm very glad I stumbled across BH as the ladies on here are so supportive of eachother and I'm not sure how people do this without that.
Here's hoping that the next cycle will be your one

Thanks sweetie! Yes there will always be regrets. If only I didnt give up after the first try, I may have reached the destination already. Thanks to the FS who never got me tested for ovarian reserve and kept assuming I was fine!!! That's why I really never fully trust those FS or GPs anymore...but I know they are just mere human beings!

Oh no I see there are more hugs needed here for Linds & M20.
Linds I feel like we have just gone through the same thing with the move on top of IVF, sounds like you're very organised well done, I am still unpacking. Take care hon I'm 99% sure you'll get a good chunk back from medicare too.
M20 You've put on such a brave face but I know it is still a massive disapointment So you want to jump straight back on the IVF horse again? I can relate about being mucked around & trust issues. I feel several yrs were wasted & did not have AMH levels tested until after IVF cycle, was told test wasn't available until recently?? Still we can't look back now can we & miracles do happen - with a lot of hard work. Hope your miracle is on its way
LG I'm insane with POAS & have had so many false positives because of Pregnyl so don't worry I think everyone does it, but do try & excercise some control if possible just to save yourself the stress. Yep you're so right no one comes to IVF without having been through a lot of hurdles first, here's hoping your IVF stay is a short one
MRSOC m/c would be so hard but I do think it's a good sign that IVF can work & lots of sticky for you for this next one.
Millie yay - I love your positivity! I hope we start off 2012 like this
Chook, Smurf, Jaye & anyone I've missed

Hi everyone, I don't often get a chance to write much, but I check in to see what you're all up to often.
Linds, I'm sooo sorry to hear about AF - I was convinced it would be your time. Hope the unpacking is going well and is helping to take your mind off it, at least a little.
LG don't fret too much about the POAS not showing anything yet. It's still really early days. Save the one you've got left for a definite positive test after your BT so you've got a nice souvenier (sp?) to put in the 'keepsake' box.
Mum2One and MrsOC hope you're both holding up okay.
AFM I'm due AF anyday now. Wish they'd hurry up as I can't book our annual holiday before christmas until I have all our dates fixed for EPU/ET (yeah yeah, priorities!). I was hoping to be away for the 2WW but looks like I'll just be moping around the house wanting to POAS like everyone else!!!
Hi to everyone. Talk soon

Mom2one sorry to hear it is a BFN. Let’s hope AF just hurry’s up so you are able to move on with your next plan.
Linds I am so sorry to hear this was not the one for you. You must feel as if you made huge progress this cycle though not only making it to EPU but ET as well. I am sure you will get a decent chunk of money back from Medicare to put towards your next cycle. You sound very organised being unpacked already. I bet you are happy to be settled again.
Jaye it is lovely to see you back, although I agree I wish it was in one of the other threads. It does not sound like an easy couple of weeks but I agree that your hormones would be contributing to how you are feeling. Getting announcement from those close to you is like salt in a wound. I remember when friends of ours announced their pg after our first cycle (no fertilisation) it was like someone cut my heart out. You are happy for them but sometimes it is just hard to see through your own grief. That same friend also had their baby the day I got another crappy fert call. Talk about bad timing…. Seeing your FS and getting a new plan will no doubt help with how you are feeling. You are not a negative nancy. What you and your DH have been through is heartbreaking. You have every right to feel sad.
LG hang in there it is still early days – and stay away from the HPT’s. They are EVIL!
Nessika we need to allow ourselves some little indulgences every now and again. As long as we dont do it every day! Good luck with your FS appointment next week.
MrsOC it can be a little frustrating when they don’t have answers for you. Are they going to change anything this time? From memory you had a big jump in FSH this time didn’t you? I don’t think there is anything you can do with the left over meds. I usually just asked for less next cycle so I didn’t end up with too much surplus at home.
Millie I hope you get your Christmas wish this year. It would make me very happy to see a run of BFP’s next month. What is happening on the work front?
Patient good luck with AF hurrying up. I think we all plan our lives around IVF so don’t think you’re alone there!
AFM – I have had a nasty chest cold over the last week which has knocked me around a little…. well a lot. I am not getting much sleep either which isn’t helping. Have first scan this Friday and I am petrified. I really don’t care how many heartbeats I see as long as there is one healthy one.

My AF came a tiny bit yesterday and then last night but really really tiny bit...and until now it hasnt gone into full flow...I did have some really dark red clumps (most like from the crinone too) So sorry TMI.
Has any of you experienced this with doing IVF?

All I know is that the drugs/hormones definitely have an affect & I had a lot of clotting in recent AFs that is not normal for me. I asked the nurse at the time something about blood pooling. At least AF has started for you so you can get on with your plan
Smurf hope you are feeling better - it's amazing how so many ladies get sick at the beginning of their pregnancy with bad colds, I know immune system is suppressed. for a healthy heartbeat & cute pic for the fridge - can't wait to hear how you go on Friday!
Patient I am booking my holiday especially for the 2WW in January - I hope you get a nice break & a NY miracle too
23-11-2011 10:45 #89
Hope you are all well.
I need some advice from you experienced ladies!!
I have read that Crinone can make you feel quite down - does anyone know how long it takes to do this? I am on my 7th day of Crinone and today feel quite sad and a bit narky.
Have just bitten my best freinds head off for telling me that I should not have done a pregnancy test yesterday (which I know I shouldn't have!!)
Last night my SIL announced to us that she is 6 weeks pregnant and did it like she was giving us the best gift ever " you are going to be an auntie and uncle again" seriously all that was missing was the "tada" I felt like screaming we dont want to be an auntie and uncle again we want a child of our own!!!
Now this is not the first time someone close has told me this of course we ahve been trying to conceive our first child for 7 years and I usually cope with this quite well and I did so last night, but today I feel quite sad and everything is just annoying me a bit.
If this is the crinone, will it get worse? I have another week of taking it and I think if it gets worse they may have to have me quarantined!!

So much has happened in the last few days!
Mom2one, sorry to hear you didnt get the BFP, but nice to know your AF arrived on time so you can start again, since being on this rollercoaster, i've got from 3 day AF at a 24 to 27 day cycle to 2 to 5 day AF will a 40 or more day cycle, i'm sure that the meds are causing you the clumps, but maybe call the Nurse and see waht she says...
Linds, sorry to hear about your AF, pity this time didnt work, its just not fair!!! . I'm guessing the moving is keeping you busy...
Smurf, how exciting to have the scan in two days time. My bestie and SIL both got sick at around 6 weeks also, are you getting any morning sickness yet or anything?
Yes you are right the did up from 300 gonal to 450 puregon this cycle and it was antagonist, this one we are going with down reg with a slight change of no pill, just waiting for AF to come naturally, go back to the gonal-f as that is what i was using when i got the BFP even though it turned out to be a m/c and i'm on two sprays of synarel in the morning and at night (yucky!) so i'm back to being nasty pasty! Have already warned DH and he was like oh you will keep having to remind me and i'm like NOOOO i've told you, if i get snappy or something just play nice cause i can't help it , I've also dropped the DHEA, it did nothing for me, the quality of the eggs nor the quantity . I also asked FS about the Colarado and she said that it has the least likely success rate but if it doesnt work this time we can try it next time. She is pretty easy going and is happy for me to try anything.
LG - If Synarel is the Devil, Crinone is the Antichrist, i found that it was the most awful of the lot! I found that i was second guessing myself, thinking i was not deserving, crying all the time, angry, and completely in bits!!! I feel for you!!! I cant remember how long it lasts, but i remember that it started at about day 4 or 5 just after i'd had ET. I'm sorry that you had to hear that from your SIL, it really is the pits, as much as you want to be happy for them, you want to have it so much yourself that it can sometimes feel like they are stealing your chance from you (well thats the only way i can explain how it feels to me, like there are only so many babies to go around....)
Nessika and Millie, when do you think you will start your stims?
Jaye, i hope you are feeling better now and that your FS has some answers for you on Friday
Hi JFB, how are you going!
AFM, i'm just waiting for AF now, i hope its not another 40 dayer cause that will mean i wont be able to start my next cycle this year and i really want to!
MY SIL is due her bub tomorrow, my BFF is due in 3 weeks, i'm their second support person, after their DH's incase they can't handle it.
