Traveler- I remember getting teary when all you graduates made it onto the UTD list too. Funny how we can be so emotional for cyber buddies we've never met! Happy 4th Birthday to your DS! No follow up BT from my clinic, they said I can have one if I'm worried though. Dr M is going to monitor weekly, so I'll get it done through him.
Crofty- yep another Dr M miracle for the Syd gals! I can't wait to see him again at my next intralipid, I'll have to restrain myself from planting a big wet one on his cheek lol.
TTHC- thanks for checking in on me and for all your great advice! So lucky I have all you experienced mummies to point me in the right direction . I am totally clueless in this world "after the BFP"!
Peonies- That roll call update felt pretty amazing, never thought I'd move past the TWW! You made me LOL congratulating Crofty on her doodle . Its a boy frenzy in here!
Lillac- Ah I thought I'd seen you post that you didn't end up seeing Dr M. Was smart having him as a back up plan though! How's your little man going?
Nattie- I knew it couldn't be that easy with adoption... but great to hear you've made a decision and will give IVF another crack next year. DH & I had an 18 month break before this cycle and I can honestly say it did us a world of good. I recommend lots of indulgences and living it up! It won't be just the 2 of you forever .
Rainbow- yay for 29 weeks! That rainbow toy would be perfect for your boy's nursery . Your ticker will be in single figures soon, woo-hoo!
MGC- I know you're still reading . Hope your break is going well and really happy you're going to see Dr M before you have another transfer .
Fingerscrossd- I need an update! I really hope the cycle was a massive success and you've been too busy celebrating to pop in.
Bella- massive thanks for all your great advice and lovely PMs! If not for you & Nat84u I wouldn't have gone to Dr M. I'd have used the last frostie, got BFN and given up. But here we are with a BFP and 4 frosties... unbelievable!
Nat84u- cannot thank you (and Bella) enough! I loved your PMs, your excitement is totally infectious
Hi Quartz & Alison
AFM- still mostly in disbelief that I'm UTD. Keep expecting to see the start of AF everytime I go to the bathroom, and so relieved when there's nothing there. Very nervously made an OB appointment for 3rd Oct, but only because they book out so quick. Just hope I'm still pregnant when the day comes around. My scan will be happening sometime around Sep 24th, waiting for the referral from my clinic to show up so I can book myself in.

Simpson yes you will go stir crazy expecting AF to arrive any minute -- doing routine panty checks, but every day the Flo doesn't turn up it will be more real for you -- dare to dream!!!!
Crofty, are you on the Sydney FB page? If you are I must be such a dill I hadn't noticed!
Nattie, local adoptions of young babies in Australia is incredibly rare--something ridiculous like 10 a year. Peonies is right that the current state govt has got a view for fostering to be more permanent through adoption but most of these adoptions still include court-ordered visitations with birth parents
Having said this I am so glad you guys are going to try again x

Hi all... good old AF decided to come a week late and decided to muck up my carefully planned long service leave holidays, so yesterday I did all my calculations, and a little unexpected, I've seen my FS this afternoon and started jabbing Gonal-F tonight!! Then Orgalutran and Leveris from Day 6. FS said that my LH levels dropped a little in the last cycle, so wants the FSH (Gonal F) and Luveris separate so he can adjust it accordingly during the next two weeks, rather than using Menopur, which apparently has the FSH and LH together in the one dose.
My FS would not allow my sister and I to do a "double cycle", just saying it was critical to keep them separate. What he would do is let me cycle, and straight after a BFN let her cycle, eliminating waiting a month or more to recover. In any case, we'll start the ball rolling as it will take at least two months to do all the consults with her, blood tests etc and counselling.
The FS wouldn't come to the party to quicken up the process of having to wait 3-4 months for donor sperm, so we will just put our name on the list again if this cycle doesn't work, but I've already set up appointments with Fertility First (no waiting list) so will discuss options there too.
The other interesting thing that came out of this afternoon's consult was about having more testing - I've asked before about implantation issues and he's always said no. Today he said yes to everything, particularly ANA (anti-nuclear antibodies), as he said once you've had 3 failed transfers then it's worth doing other tests. I know it's to do with money, but I'm a tad annoyed that they have to wait for 3 failed transfers before agreeing to these tests. If I'd known more about these things before, I think I would have jumped up and down and insisted well before now!!

Lillac- too right about the panty checks! I'm so relieved everytime I use the loo and there's nothing there. How are things going at home with DS? Hope he's still a content & easy baby.
MGC- wow, you're cycling already!! Darn AF for messing with your plans, always the way . I really hope this protocol with the separate FSH and Luveris grows a bunch of golden eggs! I agree 100% that its so frustrating in regards to needing 3 failed transfers before further testing. Be prepared for the blood draw, if your FS is doing everything on my list its 13 or 14 vials worth of blood!
Crofty- 2 more sleeps to morph scan! So exciting!!
Hi Nattie, Traveler & everyone else
AFM- After my first BT I was going well for a few days, then stupid negative thoughts & doubts starting creeping in... by yesterday I was going mental with worry! Had my follow up BT today and feeling SO much better now. Hcg has risen to 4512 and prog is good at 114 . That gives a doubling time of 44.5hrs and really puts my mind at ease that everything is on track . Having another BT next Tues, then scan is booked for 24/9. Fingers crossed we can keep clearing these hurdles

MGC- I hope the unexpected cycling goes excellently! Sorry, I've missed something, is your sister donating eggs?
Simpson- the negative thoughts are killers!! Have you bought the clear blue tests that show you how many weeks you are? They put my mind at ease a bit cos you can see hcg rising. But you levels are looking spot on. I'm so happy for you!
