Some days are just plain rough I would enjoy a few wines myself and fav takeaway.
Hide it from your news feed so you don't have to see it. L
The other week, I got caught saying loudly and rudely at the IVF clinic some people who were having a pregnancy scan. Who were gushing over there 4 IVF child (good for some) "gee I wonder how many kids she would have had if they f@cked up her EPU !!!!! And nearly killed her !!! My DH was beside me and hissed at me to be quite. How sad am I to be angry and have the green eyes monster of the IVF pregnancy people.
This is road is dam hard and it brings out our most painful of emotions

I think it is highly insensitive for people sitting in an Ivf waiting room to be gushing over babies etc don't they remember what it was like!!!! It infuriates me. I was sitting there once waiting for my pregnancy bloods when another woman was talking to her friend about how she had a positive test that morning etc etc but really loud.. I nearly cried..

Thats horrible. I wouldve said something too. Its the same when I hear mums complaining loudly in the same situation. I would do anything to be a mum.
Whats worse is the ivf people though..... when they have gone through most of the sh! T we have and still have the nerve to either complain or gush in your face. They were there...they should understand!
Hugs. Id love to slap them all.

Hi, ladies, i read through the thread but can't write long as I am on the road for work again. You ladies are tough and good to vent it out. I hate those insensitive comments and I have withdrawn from socializing every now and then. My heart ache just to think about it. There are also other things aren't going well in my life at the moment so i am feeling like the end of the world (really).
Good luck to those who are cycling. I am waiting for another month to book in with Dr. M for the NK cell biopsy. Darn priv insurance waiting period. You ladies are spoilt by the medicare.

I've been thinking...that more needs to be done in the area of immunology and pre-pregnancy blood screening to try and avoid unnecessary miscarriages. Would love to carry out some research or at least get some off the ground (I am not qualified in medicine though and have only done 1.5 research subjects which are in educational research, not medical). There would have to be ethical clearance, etc. Anyone have any ideas as to how this sort of thing could get off the ground? I can't work on it atm as I am mid-semester, but once my second assignment is in I'd love to start working towards it - perhaps I could do a proposal and submit it to my ob who lectures at uni or give it to the medical research unit in town/at uni.
Not sure, just thinking.

Thanks ladies, yesterday was rough but I got through it, no wine or takeaway though as I start jabbing with lucrin today. I did make myself a chicken Caesar salad though (minus croutons) it felt so decadent to have a creamy mayo dressing!
Have picked up all my ivf drugs, saizen is at home and the pred, doxy, clexane and progesterone arrived in the mail today. A little nervous, a little anxious. Part of me is just worried it's not really immune related and I'm just old!

Little ted, I'm not really sure how to go about it but what a great idea. If you do speak to your ob (dr b?) about it, he does know about dr m and seemed quite interested when I briefly mentioned the immune treatments I was taking. Would be wonderful if there was someone in newy who knew about immune issues as well as getting it more widely accepted. The only problem I see with research is that proper trials would need to be done with the drugs and testing to check immune system along the way and a lot of the more advanced testing is only done in the us...

Thanks Seaside - big big help so really thanks. Yes I am 11wks today (Downs scan on Thu...) and still wake up every day praying baby is ok and will be ok. My home fetal doppler has been a godsend except for the last 3 weeks i realised we have been listening to my HB and not bubs! Doh! Finally found baby's HB on Saturday i've had some serious cramping but no bleeding so trying to put that down to uterus stretching out etc.
We are negotiating for a new apt to move to across the border in HK and stress levels are high. I just want it over and done with so i can "relax" as far as that's possible. I've held off doing any baby planning or shopping till we get further along as part of preparing myself for the worse. I really envy the women who can take their pregnancies for granted too and enjoy it.
To all the other ladies - I hear you. It astounds me how quickly women forget the struggle and heartache. I certainly haven't. Most women i know outside of this board and my sister got a baby on their first IVF cycle so with them I got a lot of...oh well you haven't been trying very long (after 4 failed cycles!). Or at least you haven't had a miscarriage. Then other women who struggled for a bit then got pregnant naturally and then complained about getting fat. I used to think when they said that that it is an absolute privilege and treat getting fat and I still do. Sending everyone big hugs and baby dust xo

I am new to this thread. I have been reading posts and am interested in your experiences with immune issues. I did three cycles resulting in two chemicals before the fs tested me for NK cells.
I was told I had high NK cells and started on prednisolne. That cycle I got pregnant but miscarried. Further cycles were mostly chemicals. I moved to another fs but she does not believe in NK cells affecting results.
I would like to know more...so many of you have had success after using immune protocol...
Some of you have mentioned Dr Matthias - do you know if he takes phone conferences?
