TRH - Thank you so much for your kind well wishes. My heart sank when I read your post. You and DH have really been through the ringer in the past 2 years. The IVF process does make one miss out on so much. Your comment about putting your life on hold rings so true. I can only imagine the amount of sacrifice and things placed on the back burner. I know I have written it before, but I will never be able to understand or accept why a wonderful and generous soul as yourself is denied what comes so easily for others. It just sucks. Glad to hear your going to get stuck into the XXXX and oysters. Am here if you need anything xxx.
TFT - Thanks hun. Yes the next 2WW is sure to do my head in. In the only other pregnancy I have had the first scan at 6 weeks revealed a gestational sac with no foetal pole, the 7 week a foetal pole with very low heart rate and 8 week no foetal heart rate. So needless to say I am quiet nervous. That said, I am trying to convince myself that this is a new pregnancy.
Frosty - Thanks hun. Read your miracle post. Sounds like your having fun sewing. Very talented.
Bron - Thanks hun. Have been thinking of you. Have you made a follow up appointment with the FS?
Betel, Tez, Chook and Buffy - Thinking of all of you and hope you are being kind to yourselves.
To all other ladies

TRH. I think Laned summed it all up prefectly. I don't think I can add anything. Just some virtual hugs .

TRH, so sorry to hear. I don't really have the words,
Please try to enjoy the rest of your holiday.

Trh---I don't know what to say that can make you feel better. What a rotten run you've had. Let me know if I can do anything to help.

TRH - it's heartbreaking to read your post, I just can't believe it happened again to you. God knows I wish we could blame someone for all this. But I agree that there is still a lot in this life for us to enjoy and I am glad you can see this too. I have 7 years of trying behind me and I wouldn't have made it that far if I didn't see that I have so many beautiful things around me even though we can't have children. It's hard but that's what pushed you through after so many disappointments. Whatever your decision, I want you to know that you and DH are not alone and that life is always a surprise, you never know what's behind that corner...We'll always be here to support you
To all the UTD ladies, I am very glad to read your posts and that everything is progressing well. Hopefully more of us will join soon . Wouldn't it be great to be all pregnant in the same year?
Lineyb - any news????? thinking of you and bubbas
AFM - finally I decided to start DHEA...I held it off it until now because I was just tired of keep trying new things and getting worse results each time. But I suppose I am not left with many choices and I have nothing to loose. My current FS doesn't believe in it but luckily I still had the prescription from my previous FS so I managed to get the 25mg caps. I am taking 3 caps a day, is that right? Next cycle is planned for Feb 2012 so it will be about a month on DHEA.
On another front, I am also seeing another specialist now to try and get off the damned prednisone!!!! I was for 20mg daily for over a year (thanks to my previous FS) and started reducing the amount in October with the new FS. I was down to 2mg a day before Xmas but wasn't really feeling well so I was directed to a specialist who has now put me back on 6mg a day !!! I just want to get off the prednisone...!
Other than IVF I am very busy with preparing the new home...moving day is the 28th of January, I am so excited!!!!!!!

betel..I'm still here patiently waiting..have a feeling these little guys are gonna make me wait until the end..they must be too comfy in there...lol.
Glad to hear you are starting the DHEA.do believe it made a difference to me and I was not on it for very long when I had success as well. Good luck with getting off the prednisone and also with the new houuse.
TRH.. thinking of you and sending hugs. It must of been a big decision to stop. You seem to have your head in the right space and hope you enjoy all those endless possibilities now open to you...
To all our newly pregnant ladies..how are you going? I know it is hard as you keep thinking of the next milestone..eg heartbeat scan, nuchal scan etc but my advice is to try and relax and take each step at a time. You never lose the fear..I am always happiest now once I have felt movement in both bubs for the day then I truly relax. Important thing is to try not to stress.
Hi to everyone I have misses.. Lets hope that 2012 is the best ever for all of you.

Hi girls! Just a heads up post to let you all know that microarray CGH has arrived at QFG if anyone is going to go into PGD.
Betel---So exciting to be moving into a new home. I hope your body gets back to normal without the damn prednisone . You'd better check with the endocrinologist that the DHEA won't add to the problem.
For all those still on the trying roller coaster, it seems that quite a number of long term IVFers have gotten BFP's in the last month, and our little Taking A Break thread which has now moved to FB, have achieved 82% bubba rate in the past 2 years. The point is it's NOT IMPOSSIBLE. It just takes some of us longer to get there and sometimes the journey wears us out and down and we have to stop before it ruins us.

Betel - Great news about the house. How very exciting for you. It is wonderful that you have something to help distract from the cr@ppy IVF process. Prednisone is an awful drug. Can't say I am over enthused about taking it myself. As for the DHEA, I truly believe it, the Melatonin and Royal Jelly was what got me over the line this time. The Melatonin really helped me get to and maintain a good nights sleep. It would be great if others could joing the 2012 pregnancy stats. That is why I have decided 2012 is the year of the healthy bub. Take good care hun. xx
Liney - Who can blame the little ones for being comfortable in there (lol). Thanks for your words of advice. It is reassuring to read the words of one who has been there. xx
Frosty - As always, thank you. You have provided such great words of encouragement and fantastic motivation for all of us. xx

Anyone know when you get to see a fetal pole and heartbeat?

The fetal heart is formed from the 5th week onwards, so if the sonographer gets a good view (usually internal scan), 5 and a half weeks, but to be sure most FS will not scan you till after 6 and a half weeks, that way, if there's nothing they can be sure that it's not viable.
