I know how you all feel... One of my friends fell pregnant on her 1st round of IVF (she knows we are doing IVF also) she proceeded to complain to me about how awful she feels with morning sickness... all I wanted to do was reach down the phone grab her by the collar and say "are you SERIOUS???? You are complaining about how sick you feel being pregnant after 3 years of trying and knowing that I am still trying... i don't care that you're sick... ENJOY IT as i would give anything to be in your position right now!" - I have already vowed that I will not complain about any pregnancy side affects... I don't care what happens to me as long as i have a healthy baby!
I am having my counseling session today... hoping they can help me deal with other peoples pregnancies!
Booboo for EPU you need to have at least 3 follicles measuring 17mm to proceed with collection but follicles measuring 11mm can contain mature eggs for some nice mature ones in there!
IVFforbaby I am so sorry for your loss... your little angel is watching over you and knows already what an amazing mummy you are!! I hope that your next cycle gives you an easy 9 months of pregnancy

I had bad morning sickness and was told that the worse the sickness the healthier your baby will be so next time she complains tell her that and to deal with it there are also tablets you can get for it too maybe she should look into them being Ivf herself she should know how your feeling at the moment it kills me to see ppl treating there children not so good I would have been the best mum and maybe it won't work again baby dust to you all

Welcome ivfforbaby, I am so sorry for your loss, you are so strong to be trying again so soon.
I realised the other day that I haven't seen a friend of mine since she was 12 weeks pregnant and she had her baby at the beginning of May! She was told she'd never be able to have children, got a second opinion and has just had her 2nd daughter. I am so happy for her, and she is a truly wonderful mother, but I just keep thinking -why not me? Sometimes I wish I actually had a diagnose able issue, so at least we knew what was wrong and why it's not working. All our FS has said is that it's unexplained, and I'm old with low reserves- that doesn't help!
Sorry for the me rant, very emotional today!

welcome Ivfforbaby and I am so sorry for your loss. Sending lots of for your next cycle, I too will be starting next month . Its so hard Sandra everyday shes complaining, and this wasn't planned she says and is telling everyone else in the office. Totally agree with you Jb I too will be the same, I would just be so grateful to even be pregnant. How did your counselling session go? hope it went well and thanks I didn't know that at 11 they still can be mature. Sorry u are having an emotional day chiefgirl, it sucks, I keep asking that too, why not me, this whole thing is so unfair

Welcome ivfforbaby. Sorry about your loss
I also know how it feels about people complaining about their pregnancy. Or say they weren't even planning and fell pregnant not sure why people said its hard. I get annoyed but try not to say anything. We just found out another friend got pregnant (weren't even trying apparently). I really hope it's our turn soon. We all deserve to be mums too.
My discharge is finally gone (only lasted 1.5 days - sorry tmi). I'm now waiting for my cycle to start in about 1.5 weeks (hopefully)

Chiefsgirl, sorry you had a bad day. You can rant to us. I tried not to rant to anyone cos I'm worried people think I'm being mean. But here we all know how each other feel so we can rant away
JB, how did your counseling go?

Sorry ladies for no personals but just need to purge I don't know whether to laugh or cry today... went in for my 4th BT & scan this morning and there are heaps of follicles measuring 11mm-17mm (including 5 x 14mm, 3 x 15mm, 3 x 16mm and 1 x 17mm) but my estrogen levels have dropped This happened to me in my 1st cycle and it got cancelled for the exact same reason. My FS has said to increase my dose to 300 tonight to give it a boost and hopefully the levels come back up tomorrow if not there is a chance it will be cancelled again... I am so disappointed... I don't really know what to do. AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
04-09-2013 15:02 #138
Oh no JB2011 do they know why your levels drop? I thought the estrogen went up by the number of eggs you have growing? For it to suddenly drop does that mean they've stopped growing/wouldn't be mature???
upping the dose works overnight for you.

JB that is so frustrating. I hope the increase in meds does the trick. After all the emotional preparation we go through before and during a cycle to have it cancelled is just so disappointing and unfair.
IVFforbaby, welcome. I'm sorry for all the heartbreak you've been through. I had a miscarriage too after my third transfer and after all the elation of finally seeing that positive test and that little heartbeat on the scan it is just so heartbreaking and deflating to have to go back to square one. I hope this cycle brings you a healthy baby.
I am still jabbing, BT and scan this Friday. Earliest EPU will be is Monday. Just want to fast forward through the next 2 weeks!

After spending the past 3 hours reading through forums, websites etc I have found out that your levels can drop when you start the antagonist (orgalutran) it can also decrease if your dose is lowered (mine went from 200 to 150 then to 125) apparently a controlled decrease in estrogen doesn't affect your chances but if it drops say on a down reg cycle or if your levels aren't decreased then it's not a good thing. My 1st cycle I was on an antagonist and Gonal f 112.5 the whole time so I guess that was unexpected but this cycle my dose has been decreased over time. Anyway I am preparing myself for a cancelled cycle and to start again mid-october but I guess keeping that glimmer of hope that this 300 dose helps. It's just so strange that the follicles are growing... the body is a weird and wondefful thing.
I am going to ask DH tonight if we can go on an improtu holiday if this cycle does get cancelled so we can get away before starting the next... I need to get away and clear my head! He works in travel so
