Lashed - I'm so sorry it wasn't good news. I wonder why they have said you have to wait a month. I'm not sure why that would be but this is only our first cycle so we may quickly learn the reason why if this one doesn't stick. Maybe you can have another chat with them to find out their reasons. Take some time for yourself though and do something that makes you happy x
Ange - it can be hard when people, especially close friends, are falling pregnant. We have so many pregnant friends around at the moment too but I guess focusing on our journey and the path we are taking has kept me sane. I'm happy for them and excited but also staying focused on what we are doing rather than what they are doing - if that makes sense. Easier said than done for those who have had a really long and hard journey but you will get there. Sending you good vibes and baby dust!
Two girls, one dream and baby you are it!

AngeQ I know nearly exactly how you feel... during my 2nd round of IVF I was cycling with one of my best friends (we were only 10days apart) and mine ended in a chem then she told me she was pregnant... it had worked for her on her 1st round and now she is almost 20 wks pregnant. It was devastating and although I should have been so incredibly excited for her as they'd been trying for 3 years my heart broke for us. I too have witnessed 100's get pregnant (feels like that many anyway) being a nanny definitely has it's cons... surrounded by preggy bellies and babies. But this is also my first close girlfriend to fall pregnant...
I just kept wishing she had of been successful 3 years ago when they first started trying and I was in engagement lala land and a baby was the furthest thing from my mine as then I could have been the supportive friend I should have been instead it took me 10 weeks to be able to see her and in that time have only seen her 2-3 more times (although it is so much easier now seeing her I think our friendship might be a little bit strained (temporarily) - either that or she legitimately isn't enjoying being pregnant as she hardly talks about it, even when I bring it up) Rainbowbabe I love what you said about focusing on your own path rather than worrying about other peoples... so true but sometimes it can be so hard.
You're entitled to feel how you feel and do whatever you need to do to help cope with those feelings. This is NOT an easy journey... by far the hardest thing I have EVER done. Infertility is a b*tch!

Sparkle - after my first cycle failed AF was pretty much the same - though a little grosser because of the crinone and I had really bad cramping.
Lashed, so sorry.
My clinic also makes you wait a month between two fresh cycles so your body can recover from everything before going through it again. Hopefully with Christmas coming up the time will pass quickly and you can start fresh and as healthy as possible to create a little bubba, before you know it.
Vix sorry you are having a tough time at the moment. Hope all improves and you get your transfer early next week.
Jb - thanks for the good news story. It's stories like that keep me going -reminds me that anything can happen in the crazy IVF world no matter how bad things get.
Rainbowbabe thanks for the update.
Welcome to all the new ladies and all the best to everyone on their journeys.

There is so much activity on this thread! I haven’t posted for a looong time, but I do read the daily updates and try to keep up with everyone’s progress. I’m trying to catch up on the last few days and every time I read a page, another is added tonight!! Congrats to all those with good news, hugs to those who don’t.
I agree the world sucks right now, it has since I started this journey almost 2 years ago. I wish I could be positive like others going through IVF, but it’s so hard. My best friend from school is now pregnant (after having to take clomid for 2 months), but she got all jealous when I caught up with another school friend recently (who’s dad has testicular cancer, again) to have a girls night to vent because we’ve both had a tough time recently. I haven’t spoken to her since. After everything she’s been through – which is nothing on us – she still behaved like that! Then, my recently married (younger) sister messages me asking what vitamins she should take when trying to get pregnant. I told her what I take, then suggested she asks her friends these questions as I really can't handle it at the moment. I love my sister and we are very close, but she didn't catch me on a good day!
Since transfer I’ve been taking 1 Progesterone pessary at night. I’ve found it’s caused period-like cramps, but that’s not the worst. I feel like it’s affecting me mentally, a lot of negative thoughts, which I’m trying hide on the inside. Part of me wonders if I’m not quite over the MMC last cycle. I know it’s not a good thing to be thinking negatively during a cycle, but I can’t help it and I’m sure it’s the Progesterone doing it, anyone else experienced this? No one knows about this cycle either, so I don't feel comfortable discussing it with anyone, and my DH doesn't really 'get' my emotions!
Today I’m 9dp2dt, I’m tempted to POAS tomorrow (AF due Monday)! I feel like I have ‘semi’ symptoms of success, and it’s really confusing. Felt a bit quesy the past 2 days, but no soreness in the boobs (which I did have with the blighted ovum), and I’ve had AF cramps (which could be Progesterone) and the usual pre AF headache. It just stuffs around with your head and I’m over the whole process!!
Good luck to everyone, I have my fingers crossed for those still cycling it's a positive outcome!

do you mind I join in? I have seen few familiar names here. After 9 months since the diagnose of DH problem (azoo), we are finally moving forward. mTESE is scheduled in mid Dec. I am on the long protocol so I won't start the jabs just yet. I am currently on BCP and will start the synarel next week.

Welcome BB. Jump on a comfy spot on the couch. I'm at et stage of a long protocol cycle 'down reg' believe me the time will fly.
Good luck on your journey!!
Afm. I am super nervous. Still thinking the Fs is going to call and tell me none survived last night. It won't feel real until I'm sitting in the waiting room with a belly full of water.

Lashed so sorry. I'm sure as pp the month off is to give your body a bit of a rest. All those drugs put a lot of pressure on you. Try and put IVF out of your mind (easier said than done) it will be your turn before you know it.
Jb great story , really makes me appreciate what I have and that there are always people worse off than myself.
I bout a 3 pack of frer yesterday. I had 2 1500 pregnyl boosters 1 last Monday and the second on Friday so want to hold off till Thursday or Friday before I test.
Sparklemonkey that sounds like some good signs. With my last cycle with DS I was certain it hadn't worked cause of all the bloating and cramps which I hadn't experienced with any of my failed attempts and thought af was coming early. My boobs hurt that cycle but they were hurting even before. Transfer so were not a reliable sign.
Vix as I'm new I'm not really up with your story but hope you get some answers soon. It would be so frustrating being some where unfamiliar and feeling more in the dark than you already felt starting this crazy journey of IVF.
Ange your so not alone. I hate those bitter thoughts and feelings but can't stop them either. Just think how lucky your baby will be knowing how hard you try and what you had to go though

Vix - sorry it's all very stressful for you - fingers crossed for Wednesday ( I imagine they operate in a different and don't realise that)
AngeQ - you are allowed to rant and this is a great place for it! I totally get you too! You are not alone feeling like this.... It takes a while to work out how you want to deal with it . At the beginning of the year I told both my best friends about our journey, now they are both pregnant and I have stopped telling them about my cycle - previously I was talking to them about it, the good and the bad and they were asking lots of questions but since they are both pregnant I don't feel I can. I did send them both an email telling them I was really pleased for them, but it's hard for me and how I would like them to treat me, this made me and them feel a lot better so now when we hang out I ask a couple of questions about their pregnancy and then we chat about normal stuff... I now use this forum to share and feel I don 't need to with anyone else other than my DH

JB - thank you for the story, stories like that always give hope, I recently found out that a couple I knew through a friend who been trying for 4/5yrs IVF and all ( I don't know their background) had a little girl - it made me so happy!
