Vixjc - actually not sure what drugs or protocol I will be on with my doc - I am going to schedule an apt with her soon so I can talk details with her and see what kind of plan she has for me. Wow - you must be getting excited now too? I think April is going to be huge for both you and me!! Let's do this!!
Helsbaby - things may not always go the way you want them to but I think sometimes when you get totally out of your comfort zone and stop playing it safe, that's when really amazing things can happen. Someone told me the other day that what I am attempting is courageous and I guess that's true - yay us for pulling out all the stops to fulfil our dreams.
Took me a year to get here as well (and I managed to start and finish a new relationship in that year). Took me a little while to get my head around having a baby alone. My family are awesomely supportive too.. apart from my dad.. he will always support whatever choices I make in life but this one he is struggling a little with. I don't think single parenthood is what he had mapped out for me, but he'll just have to come around, I'm doing it.

Let's hope April is a HUGE month for us I am getting excited, it feels like everything is starting to happen quickly again. it's not long till hubby goes over to do his bit, and I had my first injection yesterday (Zolodex - used to down regulate me, instead of synarel or the pill - it did NOT tickle! I feel like I've been microchipped just like the dog!!! That needle was FAT! The injection site even bled a bit this morning during my run). I feel really good about this trip/cycle, it feels like everything is coming together. My new clinic has been awesome to deal with, my new FS has been fantastic, pragmatic and supportive. And given its my second donor cycle and I know that the meds (massive doses of them) will manage to grow my lining like it needs to, (even though the FSH meds don't grow my follies like they should), I'm not as stressed about it.
And as for you my dear, I've got my fingers crossed you're going to be one of those first time fairytales

Hi ladies, mind if I join? Looks like I'll be starting cycle number 5 in March. I just had an appt with an immune/ natural killer cell specialist and have got my program to go with my ivf program. I need to speak with the FS but we had discussed doing another long down cycle, so will start the pill in March to be followed by transfer in April just before Easter.
vixjc and booboo we've met before, hope this is it for us! Kelly70, I'm on the over 40 thread with you but have been a bit quiet lately. I just turned 40 at Christmas.
So I'm on dhea now (from the immune specialist) and my when I last spoke to my FS said she'd prefer me to do a long down cycle, so I'll be on lucrin, 450 gonal f, saizen and pregnyl, with clexane, prednisone, extra progesterone, doxycycline and an iv infusion from the immune specialist, I'm going to need a spreadsheet to keep track of everything!
Quick question if you are taking melatonin do u just use the over the counter one or do u need a script? My immune dr said to just use the one over the counter, but I thought it wasn't very strong?

Hi, can I join too? I'll be on cycle number 6. I recognise a few names on here (unfortunately!)
My last cycle was in november/december then my period took 8 weeks to show again after using some provera to help bring it on. I have just stopped taking the pill (it is weird, I agree Megs!). Man, it really does drag sometimes. I have been on synarel for the past week and I start my injections next week.
Wow Chief, they really have you on everything but the kitchen sink!
Kelly, physically I actually don't feel bad on the meds at all though I know some people suffer. Its the emotional let down in those last few days that kills me. I must remember to take a day off work this time around, I was a mess at work last time (the day of the blood test).
Good luck everyone.

Hey Everyone,Gosh please do join in, I love having more people on my thread.. makes me feel so much less alone Being a reality tv tragic tonight - sitting here watching One Born every Minute.. anyone else watch that?Vix: thank you lovely - a first time fairy tale would be magic.. let's see how the dice rolls . Did you say your donor was in Greece? So you'll be heading there as well in April, is that where your new clinic/FS is? Chiefsgirl: lovely to meet you! Massive massive good luck for Cycle 5, gosh some of you girls are strong. So do the doctors think there are immune issues causing problems with conception? Wondering if I should ask my FS to do some kind of work up on me as some girls here have suggested. I had a miscarriage but assumed it was probably egg quality related.Bongley: I see you were successful in 2012, awesome And then a chemical pregnancy on cycle 5.. that must have been a bit hard. Fingers crossed for your upcoming cycle - I would expect you feel pretty hopeful though, having already been successful.. I'm certain it won't be long for you. Thanks for the tip on the meds.. a few people have said it's not as bad as you might think which reassures me as my mind is boggling a bit at how much lies ahead of me (esp without a partner to support me).Massive hugs to you all

Yes I know all too well how that feels to not want to watch any shows or see yet another friend on facebook celebrating... after I lost the pregnancy I couldn't bear any of that stuff, even magazine covers upset me.
So cycle 3 in April, same as me?

I have 3 close friends pregnant at the moment, so happy for them they will make great parents it's just so hard to see constant ultrasound/baby pics. I also have people on there that constantly whinge about there kids so just a bit over it for the time being. Along time ago before I met dh I lost a baby so I understand how u feel too it's so hard, u never forget it's just gets a little easier as time goes on. They r always with us. Yep more than likely April for me, will be good to have a few cycle buddies, hope it's nice and short for u and 1st round is the trick

Hello to all the familiar faces Finger crossed we're all getting bubba's for Xmas. Would make a nice change given I've spent the last 2 miscarrying! I don't watch the baby shows as much any more ... I also don't talk to my girlfriends about what we're doing - bless them, but they just don't get it. As an example, recently by friend who got pregnant naturally said 'my body has failed me' because her natural labour ended with a Caesar. Are you kidding me? Your body conceived and grew a human!!! This little journey gives a whole new perspective, to me, things like conceiving my own child naturally, conceiving my own child with ivf, a natural labour - have all become romantic notions. Now I just want my husband's baby
kelly, the donor and ivf clinic are in Greece but my fs is here in Melbourne. Might not be a bad idea to get a work up - not point leaving potential problems to chance, better to rule them out or manage them before you go through the cost and emotional drain of a failed cycle I reckon!
Sorry no personals - on phone on the train...

My friends all either have kids that are teenagers or are child free by choice. The ones with the teenagers say they would never go through "all that" again now at this age and the child free ones would never even imagine being pregnant ! So no one around to really talk about it LOL.
