Nessika - I did acu quite a lot, at first didn't like it that much cos it hurt and I didn't feel relaxed so was beginning to wonder if it was beneficial too, but then I found another acupuncturist before my last cycle i just absolutely loved, used a different method and hey presto. I actually didnt' care if it didn't 'help' to get utd I just felt devine after a session and I kept it up during my pregnancy, I liked to chill out on the acu table and feel numb. The day of my transfer the acu told me she was thinking twins when she felt my pulse, 2 embryos were transferred and at the scan there were 2 sacs, one containing Evie and the other was empty. So was pretty close. I also went to a natropath and tried herbs, they weren't really ttc herbs she just wanted to help stop my body being so sluggish and tried to convince me that if I did her treatment for 6 months without ivf it would make a difference and I was like 'maybe if I had someone to rompy pompy with but I don't nor do I have the time! Just give me the god dam herbs woman!' I don't believe I benefited from that but I did ask for False Unicorn Root for my last cycle which is suppose to help implantation. So who really knows what helps but I have always recommended acupuncture and that you need to find someone you like. I have just booked an appointment for next week with a different acu than last time as she is on mat leave....bugger, hope that's not a bad omen.
JFB - hehe I don't need hormones to make me nuts, I'm already there.
Sonja - happy 1st to Marc. Yes your family is growing up. I think Perth is the only place in the country that has had a summer, got more than it's fare share that's for sure, not that I'm complaining.
Fiona - Happy 40th woohoo!
Have a sick bub atm, going to dr this afternoon. E has been miserable all weekend, always seems to get sick on a weekend when I can't take her anywhere, think she has ear infection she's been unsteady on her feet and has a cold, pulling at ears etc and she fell and split her lip yesterday, so not a happy camper right now. She hasn't liked chocolate yet so I got her a kinder surprise bunny today thinking she might eat that, she thought it was a toy and was all happy but when I bit it's head off to show her she could eat it she cried...was not happy with mummy. She has this cute way now when she cries, she puts her face in hear hands and plants herself face down on the floor in a ball. How dramatic.

Nesskia: i meant to add something that kismet alluded to....beware the ACu/ TCM practitioner who starts banging on about giving IVF the flick and working with you for 3-6 months (obviously going weekly and spending a fortune etc) and how that will get a BFOP you...i went to new person who was closer to my home and ended up ditching him as he became increasingly adamant that he could get me UTD just using TCM and acu....and thsi was when DH was what 12months old and i had just gotten a low level on my 1st attempt for number 2 ...friggin charleton. but there are some very good ones out there who know what works and know that u are there for 'IVF support" not anti ivf....

JFB. Yes I agree completely. Find an acu that is prepared and has experience with ivf cycles
Happy birthday Marc!!! Wow how time flies. Wish I had met him before you left

Nessika I used acupuncture & Chinese medicine with DS cycle. I really do feel it helped with getting our BFP, I have ditched Chinese medicine now & just doing acupuncture.
Kismet you mean Mummy biting bunnies head off LOL! I can just imagine Evie doing that.
Happy 40th Fiona, you look stunning,
JFB OMG only 7 weeks to go, your pg has flown. Ash turns 2 on the 29th, it has flown, have to say I LOVE this age.
HAPPY 1ST BIRTHDAY MARC!!! Sonja where has that year gone? I bet the beach was lovely, you really are having a horrible heat wave over there ATM
AFU toilet training has been a great success! I'm over being at home & actually looking forward to playgroup tomorrow
imloving this age, Ash is a little parrot & such a good helper. He even insists on feeding the dogs.......so cute.
Well I forgot how much I hate synarel, I feel soooo exhausted.

Fiona - Gorgeous pic of you and your bump...you are glowing....hope you had a great B'Day.
Sonja - Congrats on the B/F and Happy B'Day to your little man....they grow up so fast.
Nessie - God i feel bad i haven't even thought about TT Kade, although he is very happy to sit on the loo.....i think i'll wait for the summer before i do it with him. He does tell me when he does a wee wee so maybe he will be easy to TT when his time comes.
Good luck for your cycle......i soooooooooooooooooo am hoping this is it for you
Jfb - This baby will be here soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooon.......how are you feeling??
Kismet - Hope little E feels better soon. Tons of for you for this cycle........

amum: i havent thought about TT much either..i cant do it anyway and H isnt ready......im leaving it til end of year / summer. as for pg.....theres nothing good to say about the 3rd trimester really is there ....baby feels heavier this past week and getting that tightening sensation sometimes when u walk....breathing at night is hard..blah blah list goes on ....im lucky not much cankles this time just feel a lot bigger and very uncomfortable at night now....im seriously going to be begging ob for 38 wks c sect....the guy has seen my ar$e / hemmie so i have no shreds of dignity left so may as well start begging now too.....i just cant decide 100% on a boys name (im assuming its a boy now cos i feel so massive) so have been trying to pick something and stick to it........
nessie: sounds like TT has worked well..well done. oh god synarel is like a poison u poor woman...that was my most hated drug in ivf....nasty nasty stuff.
kismet: how is evie?
BK: how is henry? did u end just doing the settling yorself?

I dread TT having carpet! R
RANT coming... We are both crook now, I had basically no sleep lastnight (Evie was fine, just me) and had to get up to go to loo at 4am only to have the squirts, sorry TMI. Feeling like a train wreck, not sure if I ate something to upset me or I have a bug, had a frozen Mccains mini pizza for lunch yesterday and it was horrid, don't usually buy them, never will again. Took Evie off to daycare as she seemed a bit better only to be told she shouldn't be there cos she hasn't had her anti-b's long enough....WTF!!!! was so ****ed off, she gets sick from there ALL the time and there were kids there with thick green snot running like a tap. She's suppose to have them for 24 hrs before bringing her, I was so pi$$ed off, said she's had the 3 doses she's suppose to have in the 1st 24 hrs and what would a couple hrs difference make anyway...oh so sorry it's our policy, they say, and it's cos she could have a reaction farkin ..I said she's had the bloody thing several times cos she gets sick so often from here and never had a prob. They suggested I could bring her back at lunch when 24hrs is up, told them it's not worth it she sleeps after lunch and then I pick her up. OMG I'm still fuming, they have sicker kids there than her ffs & everyone else seems to drop their kids off & run but I happen to be the honest one and pay for it. I suppose she could pick up whatever is going around there anyway so probably better off at home. All I was gagging for was to come back home and go back to bed thinking she's better off away from me anyway. Poor thing has been so bored cos I can barely get off the lounge, she's in bed now so going to have a lie down myself. So, I now have a double dose of the $hits so to speak

Kismet: geez that is pretty pathetic....ive never heard of such a policy and yes im sure there are kids there who are sicker than her....i know ppl have to work etc but ffs i would do everything i could to keep H out of daycare if he had green snotty nose etc i mean i wouldnt want to be at work when sick so why would a child. i hope u dont have that bug we all had last week....it was foul...u must be so tired, i was a train wreck the day after i got that bug and slept most of the next day cos DH thank god was at home otherwise id be in your boat and it would have been truly awful.

Sorry I haven't been on. I've just had a quick scan.
Nessika - so sorry hun. Take your time. i got back on the bandwagon the cycle after my AF when I m/c.
Like others said, beware the act who spruces being able to get you UTD without IVf. Go with your gut. I used acupuncture for my cycles. She also did TCM, though I never used her for that. My acupuncturist also worked in conjunction with my clinic though.
Hi to everyone else. Sorry I'm doing a scan and run.
We are off to Melbourne tomorrow for the Grand Prix, for a week. Looking forward to it and have a bit to do today to finish getting sorted. Pretty much packed, so happy about that.
I'm on a mission atm to get rid of some mould stains in a couple of Spencer's clothes. I'm using every method known to man. Hopefully they will give up and leave!

Moong I'm very jealous!! Have great time, I LOVE F1!!! DH took me down there for our first weekend away together, he well & truly had me after that
Kismet I feel for you, there is nothing worse than both of you feeling c**p. I will be in Newcastle on Friday if you need anything let me know.
JFB you poor darling, it will soon be over for you. I think you need some choccy to cheer you up LOL!
Amum as usual Ash is always doing things early, I swear he is freak of nature!!
i was talking to Mum at PG today & she couldn't believe it, her little boy didnt shw any interest until he was 3 1/2. Ash was just soooo ready.
Has anyone heard from Tired? I hope the twins are doing well.
Spot how are you gorgeous?
