Jen- I am so sorry for you loss
If you don't mind me asking where do you have acupuncture at?
Pippi- I hope everything went well with you scan today
Little Feet- I am so very sorry, you are in my thoughts
Midnite- I hope you are feeling better today, it doesn't sound pleasant.
Afm- I'm sorry I seem to only pop in and post occasionally, as I haven't started cycling yet I don't have a lot to contribute. Finally getting things in motion though and should hopefully start our first cycle in November

This is my first ever post!
I am going to be starting my IVF journey soon and thought I would get on board here and start to get to know people and have somewhere to ask questions and to read to learn.
I have been reading over lots of information provided by the doctors, but my head seems to be swarming with terms and procedures I cant seem to understand.
I read the threads here and it sounds like half of you are fertility doctors and nurses. I hope I can start to understand it all too so I know we are doing the right things as soon as possible to as not to waste time and money.
I have done six cycles of clomid, which I responded too and the doctor said I was ovulating. So next up is I am off too have a hysterscope and laprascope to make sure every thing is clear.
The doctor suggested we try injectable medications and IUI after that, or IVF.
I guess it will depend on what is more cost effective and what will work fastest.
We haven't been given a reason as to why we cant get pregnant, other then I don;t seem to be ovulating on my own.
I am healthy and fit and (I think) young and so is my husband.
Anyway- I am pleased to meet you all, and while we aren't up to IVF just yet, there didn't seem to be another active thread with injectable meds. If I'm not supposed to be here just direct me where to go

Hi Kynem and welcome to our group!!!
Little feet: Im so sorry honey, this is going to be a difficult time and I hope you get through it x
I cant remember if the money was a concern and that was contributing to finishing IVF? Just thought I would mention the low cost IVF clinic, The fertilty centre in dandenong- they are affliated with mivf. Specialist apts, ultrasounds, bts etc are all bulkbilled which drops the cost significantly. I have just made an apt there.
afm:Not feeling confident anymore, hpt 7dp5dt is negative. Im hoping its just early as i havent got a + before 11dpdt before..feeling flat!

Strawberry, we have booked in for acupuncture at newtown natural fertility and ivf support centre. It seems good but only had 1 appointment so far!
Kynem, welcome to the thread! There is definately a lot of info available here, most of the ladies here know more than my gp! Quite alarming sometimes but that's why there are specialists I suppose!
Zacmick, try not to give up hope, it is still very early. Fingers crossed for you. How is the OHSS? I know I am going to be quite anxious and feeling wary after bfn and chemical. So tough but hang in there........ You still have every chance!
AFM I pick up drugs on 16th and start Stimms on the 18th. They are increasing the dose of puregon to 150 from 100 so hopefully will get a few more eggs. We are also doing HA ICSI so they are hoping to get a better fertilization rate.
I am kind of after opinion here but.... Last fresh cycle, DH took his sample to the wrong place while I was having egg collection. This sample could then not be used in case it had been tampered with. He had to do another sample after only 3 hours of abstinance. What I was after opinions on is do you think this could have affected my embryos? The hospital just say probably not as they did get to blasts but I'm sure they don't really know cos I bet it has never happened before! I'm just trying to get myself into a positive frame of mind for this cycle!!,
Zacmick the cheap clinic sounds great, you will have to let me know what you think (hopefully you won't need to go though!) We could do 2 cycles for the price of 1 there but living in Geelong it's quite a track to get there. Always a possibility though!
Big hugs to everyone else.

Well we are all A bit quiet at the mo!!!!

I feel so guilty about not getting on here enough, I miss the app she says in a loud whining voice!!
jen so excited you are starting again and they are looking at things to improve egg quanitity!!
AFM: we did an earlier BT last friday due to DH going away for work, and it was a negative. I had started to bleed friday so I knew it hadnt worked. Im sure implantation had tried to occur but they just werent strong enough. We are now changing clinics. I have an apt with Dandenong Fertlity Centre on 17th Oct, 18th Oct Lynne Burmeister at Monash and 22nd Oct Nick Lolagtis (sp?) at Monash too. I need more guarantees than its a numbers game, and dont understand why further tests on me or DH have never been conducted. So I rang my old clinic and they are sending out a hard copy of my files.

Zacmick, so sorry to hear your news..... It must be so frustrating. Fingers crossed a different clinic will come up with some different ideas.

Zakmick- so sorry to hear this cycle didn't bring you your BFP. I hope that you are happy with whichever clinic you choose to change to and they are able to fulfil your baby dream. Thinking of you

Sorry to hear Zakmick! It really sucks! I changed Dr's and it was the best thing I'd done! I have everything crossed for you that you find a Dr you like!
All is going well for me. We saw bubs last week and he/she has grown, placenta healed and even did a wriggle for us! So I am trying to relax. But I had an upset tummy today. I read online that it is normal but it has got me worried. I have also had my maternal serum bt done, waiting for results.

Hi everyone, it's been quite a few weeks since I last posted but have been still reading all of your stories. It's been an emotional few weeks for me and I tend to withdraw a bit. Hope you all don't mind me popping in here and there, this thread was a huge support to me during the Ivf times.
Jen: so sorry to hear about your loss, been thinking of you. I think acupuncture does help I've been going for 2 yrs now. Someone asked about vitamins for their husband can't remember who it was, but I highly recommend 'fertilaid' and 'motility boost' by Fairhaven Health, we had success after using these products, not saying it was that that did it but probably combination of things.
kmvw: awesome news everything is ok with the pregnancy, how far along are u now? Hope u are feeling well.
wunsi: hope all is well with you too
pippi: glad to hear it is going ok, how cute to see a little wriggle! It is hard to relax and enjoy the pregnancy after going through infertility, I'm still not relaxed! Hope your serum results are good.
Jez: I know how u feel, after 3 yrs of trying and 2 failed Ivf cycles I got pregnant naturally too. It is a strange feeling and it is hard to relax and enjoy the time. Hope all is well with you.
Zakmick: how are u going? So sorry this one didn't work out, hope you have success at the new clinic. Been thinking of you heaps.
AFM: I'm almost 17 weeks now. Had my 12 week scan and it was so strange! Towards the end the baby started wiggling around and waving arms and legs as if to say go away now I'm over it! Everything is going well for now except my blood sugar is rising and had to have early glucose tolerance test. Get results tomorrow. I'm pretty sure I will have gestational diabetes, trying really hard to control it with healthy eating and exercise. Blood pressure still slightly elevated, was much better when I was on holidays and was able to relax and look after myself more! Even though I have come this far, still finding it hard to relax and enjoy it, still doesn't seem real. Have been feeling fluttering in my tummy, doctor said its probably movements called quickening, but I'm just hanging out for next scan now to know all is ok. Don't know why I can't be excited and relaxed yet, just not used to things working out I guess. It takes such an emotional toll on u going through infertility.
Anyone else I missed hope you are all ok, hopefully I will get time to chat more often, it's almost 3 am now, I'm working tomorrow but been awake for ages, can't sleep lately...thank goodness it's almost the weekend!
