Precious: Am so relieved to hear you are on the mend Luv. Good on you for getting straight back up on the horse so to speak I so admire your persistence, courage, resilience and tenacity. You are a true "Warrior Woman" girl and I have no doubt you will get your BFP!!!
No, am nowhere near the flooding thankfully. I'm in Brisbane and the poor buggers copping it are in Nth QLD and far Nth QLD. My dad lives in Mackay (about a 12hr drive from here), so will check in with him and see how he's going, though thankfully, he doesn't live in a flood prone area where he is.
Emski: Yay for 5 weeks Luv!! Of course your FS's office are positive and happy about it because they know like I do that this is a sticky one my dear!! I'm thinking more Preggo symtoms should start kicking in within the next couple of weeks onwards, but you may be one of those women who only get a few (like me) rather than every one in the book!! You already have some happening with the one's you've already mentioned (my boobs are always huge come the evening as is my stomach bloating/baby and it's always been that way from the start).
Your poor ar*e!! Yes, can imagine it's copping a beating with those injections you poor Luv They're intramuscular aren't they? No wonder they sting, plus the fact that the Progesterone is in oil, it makes the liquid thicker, so yep, stingy, stingy!!! How much longer do you have to take those or are you going to slowly taper off and just rely on the suppositories/Crinone for support?? Totally understandable about the clexane with your clotting issues is it?? Get those bags of peas ready!! I always found the clexane injections easier to deal with if I iced the area for 5-10mins before injecting. Helped a lot with the bruising too. Jaysus!!!! You're going to look like a dartboard by the end of this pregnancy!!
I think it's wise booking your OB now Luv as at least you'll probably get in with the one you want that way. Yep, they're expensive allright, I wish we could've afforded to go with one, but there was no money left in the kitty after our last cycle, so am relying on the one's up at the hospital which has been fine so far as the 2 OB's I've come into contact with thus far were both Maternal Fetal Medicine specialists and highly regarded (Googled them beforehand) and the next one I'm due to have an appointment with is one of the top consultants at the hospital, so feel in capable hands though it would be nice to have that continuity of care, I admit.
I have no doubt Wed's BT result will show a cracker of a level girl!! Are you going to find out this time what it is or just get the ok from your GP that levels are doing what they should?? Been keeping up with you via your blog too. Hang in there girl, only 2 weeks until your scan when you can finally breathe a sigh of relief when you see all's well with your little one...and it will be, of that I have every confidence!! :-)
Booboo: How was your weekend girl?? Hope you and your DH had a good one together
Hello to all the other lovely ladies out there as well.......
AFM: Enjoyed going out and about yesterday catching up with my sister and our friends. Banana bread turned out great and tasted delish hot out of the oven with a smear of butter on the top!!! Yum!!
Had a sh*t of a night's sleep though (no idea why??). Was out for the count not long after 8.30pm then woke up around 12.30 am and was up until after 3.30am, then went back to bed for less than an hour and up again to get DP off to work (he had an extra early start doing overtime today). Thank God I've got the day off so will probably go have a "Nanna Nap" later on .....or at the very least, a decent lie down, after I get my To-Do list done.
Ok my lovelies, time to go for now. I hope you all have a fantastic day and until next time......................

Precious, glad to hear you're doing ok. As Bib said it takes courage to dust yourself off and give it another go, but if you're anything like me (and I think you might be) that gives me hope having a next step to aim towards. My MC was similar to yours so I fully understand how you're feeling at the moment, be kind to yourself... and in 5 weeks I think you'll be ready to tackle this again.
BiB you are making me want banana bread! I was up at 3am too STARVING... I ended up having a bowl of leftover cauliflower cheese from last nights roast and a cup of tea. Crazy. I then watched a bit of One Born Every Minute and cried on the couch lol. I went back to bed at 5am and woke up STARVING at 8am.
Yeah the progesterone in oil are intramuscular - I was working in a Big W out the back today and walked backwards into some shelving and started crying it hurt so much. The poor staff member I was talking to at the time must have thought I was mad because I was crying saying - I have to have injections in my butt and I just whacked my bum on the shelf! Far out it hurt! I"m on them until 10 weeks but start to alternate with Crinone at 6 weeks thankfully.
Re - the beta I will find out the number... I've calmed the F down about my betas now and figure there's nothing I can do - I found a thread with a lot of women who posted their numbers and follow up numbers and I didn't feel so bad. I initially came across all these over achievers who had a first beta of 898 or something and my piddley 111 made me worry, but I'm over it now ... I also backed away from the pee sticks over the weekend (until last night due to my lack of symptoms I wanted to make sure there were still two lines! All looking good there!)
Anyway - I better run - have to go pick up my poor kelpie who's been at the vet all day - poor little bugger has been so crook for a few days with allergies and a tummy bug. He's had a few skin biopsies taken today to find out exactly what he's allergic to... other other Kelpie is missing him like crazy and is herding the cats all over the house out of boredom
Hi BooBoo and our other ladies..

Precious glad to hear u r ok, you are very strong, glad to hear u will try again in June. Hope your rainbow babe isn't far
BIB w/e was good thanks, had dinner out with dh and his parents. Sunday hubby had footy so I caught up with a girlfriend and her little ones at the shops for a coffee, they are so cute they call me auntie becca
Sounds like u have been busy baking I love banana bread, a local shop sell it and they add raspberries it's so good
Emski hope your kelpie is on the mend poor luv, I hate taking mine to the vets they r just like children aren't they, I worry sick about mine. One time our older cat went missing or I thought she did anyway. I was looking down the st and stressing out, I then open the kitchen cupboard and there she is sitting in there all innocent
Rang the clinic today and booked my day 21 apt for 5th May, decided to add the Saizen in, she said roughly about $700 extra but will get back to me on the exact price soon. I remember I heard someone paid $1500? BIB what did u pay? Also got another script for dhea and melatonin nearly out again
I'm still not sure if doing long or short cycle, nurse needed to talk to FS again. If I do the longer cycle I'll start on cd21 so not too far away - oh god I don't know if I'm ready now have been a bit emotional the last few days, bloody AF!!

Emski: Hope your furbaby is better now, the poor thing. I hope they've found the cause. My little sister has a kelpie too and he's so cute!! LOFL r.e your other one herding the cats all over the house!! I can just imagine it too!!! It's a wonder they all haven't gone into "Feline Protection" (hiding)
Your Beta's are fine Luv, you know as well as I do it's not about the number per se, but about how they rise. Waking up in the middle of the night starving is yet another symptom (have done it myself a few times, which is why I keep some low fat custard or yoghurt on hand to wolf down when it happens which was more often in the first trimester, just every now and again now). And sometimes when you think of certain food or see it (for eg in a magazine), you want it, and you want it NOW!! Yep, and the fact you're appetite has picked right up and you're hungry every few hours is par for the course too at this early stage It's all headed in the right direction Luv I can assure you and I know those numbers will be a beauty tomorrow when you get the results
I occasionally watch that show too and cry as well sometimes when the babies are born (bloody hormones!! LOL) Makes me wonder about how DP and I feel when the Belly Bean is born (all going well of course). Oooh, your poor ar*se!! That would of hurt like hell!! Not long now until you can stop them though I know they're doing the job for now.
I surpassed myself with the banana bread, I must say, though I have no interest in eating it as my "Craving du Jour" at the moment is chocolate covered honeycomb...why is this so?? Buggered if I know, but I have to control myself or I'd be eating it everyday. Just have to hold out until this latest craving dissipates (which for me is usually a couple of weeks). Don't want to stack the weight on too much. Have been told by the MW that expected weight gain for women with a normal BMI before their BFP is 11-16 kg's and I can assure you, I'm well on my way to that!! In fact, it's starting to stress me out to be honest. Have already put on over 7kg's (more like 8...am bloody terrified everytime I get on the scales every week to check) and I'm 20wks tomorrow In saying that, I'm still fitting into all my clothes etc, so I don't know what's going on and nor can I control it even though for the most part I eat well etc and give into my cravings only occasionally It just feels like I'm putting too much weight on too quickly for where I'm at.....sigh....
Booboo: Good to see you had a lovely weekend girl Yes, my next "Bake Off" will be banana, white chocolate and raspberry muffins (DP is so spoilt and I'm happy to bake things I've got no interest in eating atm so I won't be tempted to binge). Froze a heap of banana's for future use. Bahahaha your cat hiding in the kitchen cupboard!!! I bet you called her name all over the house too before you went down the road looking for her!! Cheeky bugger!!
Yay for the 5th of May!!! It's all happening Luv!! I'll be keeping my the Saizen gives your eggs a massive boost too!! Used the Saizen in Cycle 4 and bought 8 vials @ $140 each, so $1120 all up. I used 1 vial a day for 8 days (which was the minimum WDA wanted me to use, the maximum I think he likes his ladies to use is up to 12 I think??) as that was all we could afford to spend at the time. I think the price my clinic charges for it now has gone up slightly and from what I've read of other ladies posts, some FS are only using 1/2 a vial per injection. What does your FS plan to do??
You'll be right Luv, you can do this!! I have no doubt all your hard work will pay off. Take a deep breath, gather your inner reserves and strength, stare this Cycle straight in the eye and charge headfirst into it with every intention of getting to embryo transfer because you want that BFP and by Christ you're going to do everything in your power to get it!!!
Hello to all the other lovely ladies.......
Ok my dears, must get on with it for now. Have yourselves a fantastic day and until next time............................

20 weeks today woo hoo, try not to stress about the weight gain, I know easier said than done. Choc honeycomb is good, I have a craving more for savoury, a big bag of twisties will fix me
Not sure about how much Saizen I'll be having I'm waiting on the nurse to call me back
I wish I could feel stronger bib I just don't anymore feeling quite lost at the moment, scared for the future and what it will bring. Sick of things being hard in many areas of my life - sorry for the downer post just have a lot going on if it isn't enough to just have this to worry about
16-04-2014 05:19 #637
Emski: Good Luck today Luv (though I'm confident you won't need it...) Nevertheless, and levels are rising like they should. You're 5+2 today aren't you? Am expecting a ripper of a number when you get the result. Will be stalking this thread looking for your update
Booboo: Oh Luv..... This whole IVF thing is such a difficult thing to go through without the added stress of issues in other area's of our lives going on at the same time. Yes, it would be nice if all our challenges/ obstacles that we have to face on this rollercoaster that is life unfolded in an orderly fashion, one at a time, but life (and all it's up's and down's) stops for no-one and we can only do our best to soldier on and survive the sh*tstorm we find ourselves in. Try not to get too far ahead of yourself in regards to the future. It's something we can rarely control so it's best to cross those bridges when you come to them sometimes or else you just end up a nervous wreck worrying about all the "what-if's" that may or may not happen. All we can control is the now, the present and the very moments we live in (and only then to a certain degree).
Have you thought of having any counselling or is it ringing a bell in this Preggo Brain of mine that you already are/have done?? If not and you find things becoming more difficult to cope with, please go and get some help ok?? You don't have to struggle on alone if you don't want to and it's ok to ask for help when we need to. Whatever it is that's going on with you girl, I hope it resolves itself sooner rather than later
Remember that we're all here for you Luv and will be cheering you on from the sidelines!!! And you never need to apologise for sharing your feelings here with us be they good, bad or ugly (Christ knows I "emotionally purge" myself often enough on this thread....) It's not all beer and frigging skittles in everyone's life all the time!!!
Precious: Hope you're recovering well Luv...still thinking of you and can't wait to see you back here when you're ready
Big Hello to all the other lovely ladies too......
Ok my dears, have yourselves a great day won't you?? And until next time...............
