Newmummy - we found that first week in hospital tiring but things got easier once we were set up at home and in a routine.
Afm - I am waiting for my monthlies (which are 5 days late) so I can start my first round of IUI. Getting impatient... Why is it when you want them to come they take their sweet time???

Hi ladies....mind if I join you? I have a beautiful cheeky nearly 18 month old daughter (after 2 years TTC) and am back on the infertility roller coaster trying for bub #2. I have PCOS so main problem is growing and popping that darn elusive egg! For my dd we tried a fertility naturopath for way to many months, tonnes of acupuncture, 6 months of clomid, 4 months on Metformin and were finally blessed on our second round of FSH injections with IUI. Of course in hind-site I should've know something was up with my cycles but I wasn't diagnosed PCOS until after 10 months of TTC.
This time around we've been trying on our own since January and recently had my 1st round of FSH/IUI cycle cancelled on CD26 with 4 x 10-12mm follies instead of 1 nice big one. Just finished 10 days of Provera to bring on what is shaping up to be one heck of an AF and then I start injecting again on CD2 for round 2 on a slightly higher dose. If I overstimulate again this cycle, it'll be onto IVF for me......which I know absolutely nothing about! Eeek!!
Are most of you ladies happily graduated or are some of you still cycling and if so, what types of treatment are you trying??

Alot have graduated here but there are still a few trying and some graduates now trying for number 2.
It's a great source of information here as some of the girls here are extremely knowledgable on everything iui & ivf.
Good luck on your journey. We will all be here for you!

I'm on of the "lucky ones" to have PCOS too. Unfortunately this was diagnosed about 14 months into us TTC. I am about to start my first IVF cycle and I'm actually a little bit excited about it. I think more so because I want to see if my body will actually work properly this time. I tried Clomid but had to be taken off straight away because I overstimulated and IUI was useless.
I really wish you all the luck in the world! This forum is great for finding things out and venting if you need to.

I have sort of graduated! I'm 19 weeks pregnant with first bub after 5 cycles of IVF. I have blocked tubes so had to go straight to IVF (after 2 years of TTC - 8 months of no period then nearly a year of blood tests/temps/natural stuff then my GP thought I might need a 2nd opinion).
Once we have this bub and are trying for #2 I'll be back on the roller coaster once more!
Feel free to ask as many questions as you want!
TK I was like that with my first IVF cycle - my AF was 7 days late. My Dr made me do a preg test just to be sure. What would the chances have been if I was - I think I was just stressed/anxious/excited etc about starting and it showed. Hopefully you can get the ball rolling! You could have two babies under two soon - hectic!!!! Hopefully Dakota is being a good bubba
Newmummy I hope you're getting as much rest as possible and enjoying your little bubba. Is your DH still here?
AFM - had our big 19 week scan yesterday and everything is perfect (phew). The Dr told us that our downs assessment number was the highest it could have been (apparently you can only increase 20% from the starting number & I was right on the 20% so very happy). I asked him if it was normal not to be showing much and he said because I'm fairly tall (about 170cm), have a longish torso and have really tight ab muscles & a flat tummy (thank you pilates) I prob wont show for a while longer - but it's not an issue. Bub has been laying vertically snuggled up against the placenta (which is kinda at the back) last week at OB and yesterday. Dr said this is prob why I can't feel anything yet either as it's kicking the placenta. DH & I are getting less anxious by the day & I just bought our first baby item - woohoo!!!
If anyone is keen for a catch up - what about last w/end of Sep???

Hello ladies I'm so in love it's crazy never new this love existed!! Had a bad day yesterday ...... Before we left the hospital after Zoe was born we were seen by a paediatric doctor who said everything was fine but she thought Zoe's fontanels were fusing too soon and to not worry but to go see GP on Tuesday to see if any thing had changed any how we done this yesterday and he seems to think they have too so now we have been referred to Gold Coast again to have a specialist look at her head and she will need a cat scan to confirm ..... It's been so hard to stay calm and positive !! Im just so scared! my Man was ment to go back yesterday it was too soon for him and because of all this he's taken another week till my mum and sister come from newzealand .

Oh no newmummy, hopefully everything will turn out ok. Excuse my ignorance but why is it bad if they fuse too soon?
Remember I'm just around the corner if you need anything, I'm happy to help. Or even if you just need someone to talk to who understands xxx
