It amazes me how many others are out there going through the same ordeal. I just know this is going to be a positive thread
MINI: the only reason I knew about the med FET is through lovely DR Google! I am not too sure what type I will be going to do, but it is drug free! I am the same as you, my amh is 57, so stimmed relatively low and cancelled ET due to OHSS risk. I understand about getting a good amout of eggs, I hated the jabbing side of it. We sound identical with our cycles, I am around 30-31 days, so I am guessing we should be a day out from each other!
ROSE: Welcome and I hope this stim cycle is successful. It sounds like you have been through the works. I empathise with you about endo surgery, it was agony but hopefully it was sucessful and symptoms are alleviated. Look forward to sharing this roller coaster with you!
JTM & KIMBERLEYGAL: Welcome and hello. The more the merrier. Can't wait for updates.
RICE: hello and welcome. I am sorry for you bfn. Let's hope this cycle is a lucky one
AFM: still feeling pretty rubbish from my EPU last Tuesday. Hopefully I start to turn a corner. Counting days for the little witch to arrive so I can again jump on the IVF bandwagon.
Have a great day ladies x

Yes, Minib, I was also in the September/October thread – it was lovely to see so many in that thread getting their BFPs! I am crossing my fingers this is going to be a lucky thread also. I am doing a down reg. cycle. Starting Synarel this Saturday and then timing stopping the pill so that EPU will be mid-December (somewhere between the 13th and 16th). We didn’t get any snow babies last cycle – so at the very least we’re aiming for that that this time around (but hoping for a BFP of course!).
Hello to everyone else

Minib - Hope December is your month
ToniR1411 - 5 frosties, hope they thaw ok for you I was at risk at OHSS during my very first fresh transfer, I really shouldn't have had the transfer and I believe it was the reason for our BFN. We waited 3mths as I wanted my body to have a break and then we had BFP which was the a FET, the only frozen emby that survived the thaw, ds1 is now nearly 6 years old.
Rose2207 - Hoping your frosty is successful
JTM and rice cracker - good luck to you
My history, this is our 3rd full cycle. Not really looking forward to another egg collection and our 6th preparation at doing a transfer. Unfortunately we haven't had much success with our frozen embies surviving. It's been devastating getting that dreaded phone call on the way to hospital for transfer to be told your embie didn't make it. Then we had to cancel our cycle in April after a miscarriage as a result of a natural miracle pregnancy so now we we are again. I am 38 and considering the history of our frozen embies I feel this is most likely it for us and I really want it to be over this year! Our specialist is happy to transfer 2 embies this time so we really hope to at least have 1 bubba. Will see how it all goes.
But hopefully history will repeat itself, 1st cycle = ds1, 2nd cycle = ds2, 3rd cycle = baby 3 But if not we are blessed with our ds's.

Kimberley, welcome! I hope this cycle is as lucky as the previous ones. IVF is tough and so many roller coaster emotion. I hope by transferring 2 embies you have at least one baby.
JTM, I also hope this is a lucky thread and we will continue the luck from the sep thread. Could be a really nice Xmas present for you this year.
Rice, hello!!! Another sep thread buddy. Down reg cycle seems like a really long process. I was on antagonist and will be on that again if I need another stim.
Toni, ah dr google. It can be so informative and dangerous at the same time. Yeah sounds like we are very similar. Our issue is mfi so far. Hopefully nothing else. I had a laparoscopy earlier this year and they found nothing wrong with me. Was told it should be relatively easy process to get pregnant so here's hoping!
AFM, my legs start to feel heavy and sore. Normally this is a sign of AF. Also caught up with some gfs. One of them told me she's pregnant. So happy for her but at the same time feel upset for us. We've been trying at least one year longer than them. But hey it's not a competition. I'm still very happy for them but will also admit I feel sad for myself. Our time will come ladies and I'm hoping its December. Sick of waiting hehe

Good morning everyone! For some reason my daft computer is not letter me enter! Kimberley: I am very anxious about them not thawing. We focus so much on getting eggs and now the worry is placed on whether they thaw! It is a never ending journey! I have only had 1 EPU, but I have to say, it was wretched experience. I am still tender. I hope you get a great haul and it is successful. When do you start? Minib: I hope she arrives sooner rather than later - the only time we want her to come! It is really hard hearing about pregnancies. I have struggled massively with my best friend being up the duff. I have finally come around, but it has take me ages! You are right, this will be the month for BFPs! EOE - hello and have a great week!

Hi can I join? I am currently CD4 going to have a FET probably by the end of November with my blood test in Dec! This will be my last frostie my other two didn't take.
13-11-2013 16:06 #17
Welcome Nezz79. Hope this frostie will take for you.
ToniR1411- af expected to arrive around the 10th December. We leave to drive to Perth on the 12th December (we live 2700kms away) so it's quite a mission tying everything in with our travel.
13-11-2013 16:08 #18
Just got the call transfer date for me is set for the third of December. I was on the Oct/ Nov thread but as my transfer and my 2ww is in December so I hope noone minds if I join too?
A few people might know me from the June/ July and August / September thread. I also pop into the 30 -35 and FNQ thread from time to time.
This week has being a bit of a whirl wind for me as I wasn't even sure they would let me cycle on Monday when i had my follow up appoitment but my new FS took me striaight in and did my endrometrial scratch then today AF arrived so now it is all systems go. I am so excited to finally be here again although I did my first Clexane injection today and oh my that needle is an ouchy one. Other than that I really hope this is a super lucky thread and we all get x'mas BFP's. xo.

Nezz: Welcome and good luck with the FET. I look forward to your updates
Kimberley: you are a Wonder Woman! We travel to Perth 4 times a year to visit DH's family. We have travelled up north so I can appreciate the travel.
Sharlee: hello and welcome. You have indeed had a whirlwind time. The 3rd will be here so soon. Clexane are horrendous- they sting like a b!tch! We do get Christmas bfps.
AFM: I feel like I am in limbo land. Praying for AF to arrive and time is dragging. Feeling a little worried now about my frosties. Can anyone tell me success with grade 3 and 4 embies? We don't have any grade 5 and am stressing that the quality won't get us through. It feels like 1 hurdle after another.
Sorry for the whinge girls, I know I am fortunate to be here, just have some cruddy days x

I have been reading along but am becoming increasingly more impatient with replying on my phone and this is the first chance I had to get computer away from DH's aeroplane, car, quad searching fingers
Yep I have been in September and October / November thread/s as well as the January 2014 one as I was under the impression I was doing a frozen transfer until I found out I didn't have a frostie, this information hadn't been passed onto us!! I sound like Thread Tramp don't I?!?!!? Oh and the 30-35 thread - total tramp
I hope you are OK TonyR1411, limbo land is a place frequented by many IVF'rs I think . . . I use limbo land to get my body into the best place I can both physically and emotionally well that is what I tell myself and it seems to make the time drag a little faster . . . and yes the shoulder tip pain was dreadful after the endo surgery, poor DH -we were driving home from the hospital about 10pm along the freeway where there was an abundance of roadworks and no emergency lane, all of a sudden I needed to be sick (it was just the stupid gas!!) so similar to the lady on the idea ad STOP THE CAR!!! He couldn't as there was literally no where to stop until the next exit where he did stop on the side with me hanging out in my polka dot pj's sounding like ee or (his words!!) he then decided to impersonate the donkey noise that the gas trying to escape sounded like which made me laugh . . . . which hurt!! oh dear!! anyway, off the beaten track!!
JTM -wishing you the best, we will be having our p/u around the same date I am doing a sandwich antag cycle this time, hoping for third time lucky and that I will get more than one frostie!! A friend told me that my cycle sounds more like lunch than making a baby, I quite liked that
KimberlyGal1 - we just went to Coral Bay which is 1200klms so much respect to you, this journey is hard enough and I am only 10 mins from my clinic!!!
Sharlee32 - how exciting, so glad you could cycle. I remember you from other threads too, your puppy is so cute!!! How was the scratch?? I have mine booked in for the 22nd November . . .
Ricecracker -thank you, look forward to it too. I hope the down reg cycle treats you well!!!
Sorry if I have missed anyone or anything!! I have my fingers crossed for us all and sending everyone oodles of and lets hope we all get the BEST christmas present yet
