Just saying hello everyone. Nothing really to contribute. Zakmick, good luck with your knee. Selm, have you tried Parsley tea and a white skirt???

Parsley tea and white skirt Net?? Lol
There is a lot of bad news on the threads today, a lot of hearts breaking, it's hard reading all of these and thinking will we ever get there.
Then I think how wonderful we all are to be trying everything possible to make our dreams happen- we are very special women!! Even with the constant set backs, slaps in the face and wearing our hearts on our sleeve we keep going.
Ivf brings out the worst in us but also the best.. Patience, resilience and strength are things ivf has taught me about myself.
Sorry girls getting a bit philosophical.
Afm: knee is good and I think I have ovulated so FET next month might be sooner than I thought!!

Zakmick, great news about O and also about your knee!
Perhaps knee surgery should also be added to the parsley tea and the white skirt, LOL!
There has been lots of bad news on the threads. Well more hurdles really. Hurdles that Im sure can be overcome, and really we need to all believe that and for some of the time we have to truly believe it or we wouldnt do this to ourselves.
We are a group bound by the most exhausting experience arent we.
I am so grateful to have you all around.

I thought from another forum that parsley tea was standard for bringing on AF. Guess that's a snippet to save for when she's being slow. Also wearing a white skirt! Hope everyone's travelling well.

Feeling a bit frustrated today. I am actually kind of reluctant to do another full IVF cycle as I can't really afford it and feel my egg quality isn't worth it anyway. I love the comfort of having a scan and knowing there's follies there ready to pop but they only do that at my clinic if you are doing IVF, not for IUIs. My most success came before from a converted IVF cycle antag cycle with 2 follies, and i can't help wanting that again. It was my first IVF and I was excited but also felt more in control when i started getting the scans.
My FS won't answer questions/consult over the phone but I can't get another appt til next Thursday or Friday and I'll have started day 1 again by then. I really hate to miss a month. If I get a similar number of follies as last time (5) I'd really rather do an IUI. Given that I only got 1 fertilisable egg from 5 follies , I am not remotely worried about multiples but the clinic nurse said generally they wouldn't do it for 3-4 follies. Given that my FS took the DHEA away, I'm not likely to get more or better quality eggs with the same flare cycle as last time. What does everyone think?

I girls, i wondered if i could join you on here again. I really need to get off the cycle group threads because i dont want to impose any negativity on the girls still trying to make it through their cycles.
I just feel so hopeless at the moment. I have got to to stop looking online for info and journals. 3 chemicals in a row puts you in 1% of women, i just feel like all the odds are stacking up against us and we're never going to have a child.
I'm prob just extra fragile because we now have 3 friends with babies due in Jan, when our last pregnancy (the most promising one) would have been due. I think i've got to make a mandate to keep off the rest of bubhub as well and only stay on the IVF forums. I literally cannot believe that there are women on here starting threads because they have found out the sex of their child and aren't happy just because it wasn''t what they wanted!
I will stop back and read what i've missed. I really hope you are all coping ok, and that you get off this rollercoaster very soon (with your babies!).

Hello there. I've been MIA on these threads for a bit, but I've been keeping an eye on them.
Clem I wish there was something I could say that would help you feel better, but I don't think there is. It's a really crappy situation, and it's not fair at all. I understand how upsetting it can be to hear people say things about their pregnancies/ babies when all you want is to be in that position too. It would be very hard to have friends with babies due at that time.
What's the next step with you in terms of getting some answers as to why this is happening?
Net - I'm not really sure what to suggest in your position, but it sounds odd to me that your FS won't talk to you over the phone. I call mine all the time! (Well, not quite, but fairly often). Is there anyone else at the clinic you could talk to, if you explained it was urgent and you risk missing a cycle?
AFM - I don't know. Put an offer in on a house today, and booked a holiday for a couple of weeks time. How's that for retail therapy?!
I'm struggling to feel positive, and feeling closer and closer to putting a stop to TTC. My whole mindset is different now, and I don't know how to get it back. Before the mc I was so excited to be pregnant, even knowing how much I really hated pregnancy the first time around.
I know that will sound terrible to anyone who is desperate to be pregnant, and I hate hearing people complain about pregnancy when it's all I want now. But, to give some brief background, I really hated pregnancy the first time around. I felt pretty awful, ended up with SPD and couldn't walk for the last month, and was terrified of having a baby. And that was after over a year of TTC + treatment. This time around I said it would be different, and that I feel like I messed up by being so negative before. The last c.18mths of TTC I've felt excited about being pregnant and it's all I've wanted. I was so so happy to get the BFP and be pregnant (before I miscarried).
And now I feel like I did a few years ago. I feel like I don't want to do another round of IVF. I don't want to be pregnant. I just feel really miserable about it all, and I can't explain why. I still want the baby at the end of it! I'm just dreading the process, and feeling really negative about it.
I think I'm just tired out from the long TTC process. I feel like it's consumed my life, and taken my focus off everything else in life. And as I haven't been injecting/ taking pills for the last 10 days, I feel physically better than I have in months. I feel like my old self. I've been drinking wine, coffee, getting excited about the house/ holiday, and I've socialised more in the last week than I have in a year.
I guess I've just remembered what life was like before being in this TTC hormone crazed bubble! And life was nice.
So, we'll see. We have FET late August (maybe early Sept), and we have 6 frozen embryos from the last cycle. So I think the plan is to use those, and then - if it hasn't worked - we will stop. Usually I'd feel devastated just thinking about it, but at the moment that seems okay to me. Not sure what's going on emotionally really.
Sorry for the long post! (Which probably made no sense at all, as I really have no idea what I am thinking or feeling...)
