Sorry I have been MIA. I needed to keep busy this last week to keep my mind from worrying. I know it's only 1 week between tests but after doing so much through the stim, it feels like I'm not doing enough in between beta tests.
I'll try to get to everyone, my apologies if I miss someone.
Sandra. Congrats on being PUPO! And the high grade embies too!!! Enjoy the TWW and I hope you don't get crazy like I do. I'm so impatient lol.
Chiefs. Have a great time in nz. And good luck with the scratch and this coming cycle.
Hearts congrats on PUPO, I hope you enjoyed archery. Unless u pull a muscle I would keep doing it, sounds like a positive exercise that will help keep stress down and take your mind of things. Sounds fun.
Megsarama. Yay for a fur baby. Good luck for transfer.
Mini. I'm so sorry, I hope it's just a scare, but if not big hugs and hopefully you can do FET as soon as its best for you.
Annerley. I will prob write to u in other post, but congrats on your numbers rising!!!! It's just so unbelievable, exciting, amazing all in one isn't it. So happy for you.
Jb. Love the pic of your wuppy. So cute. Hope you are well
Berra. Love how u forgot and moved furniture around. I did the same thing. When I was topping up our large aquarium, I lifted 25litres of water above my shoulders and into the tank. DH just looked at me afterwards and I got in a bit of trouble for not asking him for help. Oops.
Nicole. & KLM I hope you get to start another journey soon towards your BFP's. fingers crossed for positive news soon.
Frances. I hope hypnotherapy went well today, I'm interested also in how that makes you feel. Good luck for transfer tomorrow.
Everyone else. Babydust & miracles for you all.
AFM. My long awaited 2nd Beta test was this morning... I just got the results and my HcG is now at 10894 and progesterone is 1036! I'm so happy bambi & thumper have stuck! I started to worry as the last few days my symptoms have gone. All except the frequent urination at night. So I took the day off work in case I got bad news. FS said no more horrible pessaries Yay! And to come back for scan in 2 weeks. I feel so awesome. It's taken so many years and we have felt so hopeless. To now finally get our miracle makes it all worth it. To all the ladies struggling to pick it up and try again, please keep up the hope and never give up. Take a break, a holiday, or just spoil yourself for a while. But don't give up. I wish u all your BFP's and that you don't have to wait as long as I did.
I will drop by and update you all, and I will always read your posts. Forgive me if I don't post daily.
Babydust to you all.

Happy Monday everyone!
Thank you all for the well wishes - you girls are amazing!
My BT is schedule for 29 October which is the day before my birthday … So nerve wracking! We got a call from the clinic on Sunday saying they were able to freeze one more, so we have a total of 7 frosties! I’m still in shock but very happy that I won’t have to jab again for a very long time … Hopefully never again!
Heartstringz - How are you going with the 2ww? When is your BT scheduled?
Annerley - Unfortunately the clinic’s camera was broken so we didn’t get to see our little emby. It was a little upsetting, but the main thing was that I was having the transfer so I just focused on that. Our transfers do sound very alike. This fills me so much hope!! Thanks for explaining the hatching part to me. How exciting that it was already doing that then! Thanks heaps for the tips too. I’ve bought myself a big bag of brazil nuts and am eating them every day. I’ve heard about the coldness so I’m steering clear of anything that’s too cold. I hate water that isn’t icy, but it’s all worth it! I’ve also kept my showers to just warm, which again is a big difference because I love them hot. Anything to make this emby know that it’s in a safe environment and that it can stay for the next nine months!
Frances - I swear by acupuncture. I’m really happy that it’s helped you. I found that it really helped with keeping me positive too. How did you go with hypnotherapy? This may be a silly question, but what does pineapple do?
Jb - How are you going with the jabs? I really hope this is your lucky cycle.
Good luck to all the girls with a BFP, cycling or in the 2ww and big hugs to the girls who haven’t been so lucky this cycle ….

Hope - That is such wonderful news!! It sounds like things are moving along perfectly. I hope these next two weeks fly for you so you can finally see what bambi and thumper are up to!! I'm so excited for you!

Sandra I'm not sure when my BT is scheduled, I haven't heard yet. Hopefully I hear soon.
I'm not enjoying my tww that much. Having issues with constipation (sorry tmi I know) so I'm really uncomfortable. Have upped my fibre intake & started taking fibre supplements but so far they don't seem to be doing much. Called the clinic today who said to take Movicol & prune juice which I'll try but I'm not really holding my breath. I really really don't want to have to resort to a laxative but if nothing works soon I'm going to have to.
Also under an extreme amount of stress at work and not coping with it very well at the moment. DH is furious about the stress it is causing me & so am I. I don't need this right now & I'm really really worried that it will affect implantation. If I have to go again it doesn't look like I'll have any choice but to take leave without pay to get through the stims, EPU, ET & tww without ridiculous levels of stress.
Hope everyone else is doing ok & that none of you NSW people are in bushfire areas!

Thanks for the message Hope, all is going well here too! Congrats on your beta, that's awesome news! My third and last beta is tomorrow, should be done with Crinone from then too, yay! Your progesterone levels are looking fantastic as well. Don't worry, my symptoms come and go as well!
Sandra- my birthday is this Friday, hope you get a nice early birthday present like I did!
Shame about the camera not working but you are right, it's not the main thing. I'm glad you got the Brazil nuts, as for pineapples, I heard conflicting things on them, some people say they work like the Brazil nuts but others say the citrus in pineapple makes the uterus too acidic for the embryo so I decided to steer clear just in case!
Heartstringz- so sorry to hear things haven't improved at work but you are right, it's not what you need right now. I hope things get better for you soon! Good luck and thanks for the well wishes about the fires, the smoke hasn't been nice but seems to have cleared a bit here lately!

Good Evening Ladies,
Heartstrings that's terrible about your work. It makes a hard situation unbearable. A really really gentle laxative is parachoc, hopefully you don't need it. It can be given to little children and has no senna which is very harsh on the bowel.
yay Sandra for extra frosties !!
Great news Hopeforbaby that your beta is rising. Such great news.
Good luck Annerly for your last BT. I've been eating Brazil nuts as well. I've bought half a pineapple. Not a huge fan so might give it a miss.
The hypnotherapy went really well. I feel really relaxed, like I'd been asleep. She told me to trust my body and no matter the outcome ill cope. I'm relaxed and and on an even plain. Ill do accupunture again on Saturday as well.
ET is at 11:30 tomorrow Ive still got 5 embies growing, two are alittle slow going. Fingers crossed there is a frostie.
Good luck everyone

Good luck for et tmw France's xxx
Heartstringz that sucks about your work, hopefully things get better soon. As for constipation, I try prunes and benefibre, works a treat for me, are you keeping your fluid intake up? You really need to drink over 2l per day.
22-10-2013 09:19 #68
Heartstringz - Hopefully they call you soon to let you know. It’s kind of nice having a countdown … One week to go for me! I am still having issues with constipation too. It’s just horrible isn’t it? I’ve tried Movicol and it didn’t do much (apparently it just hydrates your stools). I ended up getting a laxative just before ET because I was in so much pain. Now it’s all back and it just sucks. I was going to start on prune juice today and hope that it works. Good luck with it. I feel your pain.
As for work, that is just horrible. All of this extra stress cannot be good for you, especially after all you went through with stimming. Is there any way that you can take some time off - even just a few days? I’m sending you a big hug.
Annerley - How exciting that you won’t have to use crinone anymore! I really hope I get the same birthday present as you. This must be the best birthday ever for you! You’ve made me wonder about the pineapple so I think I’ll just ditch it. Better to be safe than sorry! I keep listening to my body to see if anything is happening but I’m pretty sure I’m just imaging half of it. I’m so conscious of everything I do now which is crazy. I hope this next week goes by quickly. Good luck with your last beta today! I’m really happy to hear that the smoke has started clearing for you. Lets hope it improves over the next few days.
Frances - I’m glad that you’re in such a good place right now. I hope your ET experience is a wonderful one. I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you get a frostie or too. I can’t wait to hear how it went.
I hope everyone else is well.

Hi ladies, had a wax this morning (sorry if tmi!) have to get prepared for wedding this weekend anyway was chatting to my waxer, who I've known for about 5/6yrs, and have been through her breakups with the same guy, dramas etc and she's been saying they want a baby one day, she's 39, so I have been thinking she better get a move on... anyway she's now 9wks pregnant! Started to "not worry" in January and voila pregnant! She said if she wasn't preg by jan she'd start looking at when she's ovulating. OMG how lucky was she...! I took the news quite well and actually happy for her cause at 39 it could have gone a different way. But still... Not fair... C'mon universe!!
She's brave telling people at 9wks but I think she's just so excited and for them it's all unicorns & rainbows whereas for us IVFers the fear of early pregnancy is very real. How nice for then to be in that bubble, I'm jealous! Sorry just had to share as u guys are the only ones who understand me blabbing on!

Im now PUPO I had two blastys transfered this afternoon. 1 arrested over night and I have two that need to grow abit more before they can be frozen.
I had the same doctor who has done my last two EPU she was very gentle and helped me relax. My BT is on the 1/11 so let the TWW begin. I have been to 3 super markets and still no turkey. DH is now out on a mission.
JB wow bout your waxing ladie. It just goes to show us, that miracles do happen and yes there is something special out there for us. I tend to get abit too excited bout people who have the odds against them getting pregnant. So understand what you are saying.
Hope everyone else is having a good day.
