Pjk - that's great news!! Congrats!!
Ladydee - good to start the ball rolling!
Furbabymum - I think she meant well but didn't know how to say it?! She has fallen pregnant really easily twice.
Thank you! I'm 20 weeks along and feeling bub move around. Odd feeling but so so reassuring!

Furbabymum - I can understand you trying to stay away from your friend until you get your bfp, may be the best way to avoid questions and judgement. Great that you have your friend who has gone through IVF for support. Your symptoms sound like a good sign hun fingers crossed this is your cycle. Keep us updated with how you go and your BT results.
ELM13 - Amazing feeling when you feel bub moving around, enjoy every second, it felt very funny when I delivered DD - it was amazing to have her in the world after the long wait to meet her but somehow missed the feeling of her inside me.
AFM - 7dpo today, no symptoms at all so not feeling too positive , I decided to leave my Bt until first thing in the morning as I was due to ovulate at night so technically not 7dpo until this evening - hopefully results tomorrow will show ovulation (I am thinking so).

Well I'm out of the race. AF arrived at work this afternoon and I fell to peices and left work. Hubby is uncontactable on a farm so I went to my parents place and Mum gave me some Baileys Now I might nap until hubby gets home. Here we go again...
I dont know how all you girls do it time after time. This is just my first cycle and facing a 2nd one is hard enough!
Heyside - hang in there

Oh furbabymum so sorry to hear that news this whole thing can be so frustrating big hugs hun . Although you feel very down and emotional at the moment you will find the strength to start another cycle as its the only way we unfortunately have to fulfil our dreams and as you start that next cycle you will be surprised how positive you start to feel again. You will get there, just think as this first cycle as your practice, they will know what dose etc works for you now. Look after yourself tonight though treat yourself in someway, that's how I usually overcome the disappointment.

Oh no, Furbabymum! I really had high hopes for your beginners luck seeing you through! Everything was sounding so positive, I'm so sorry it was a BFN this time I second what Heyside said.... your FS & FN's know exactly what works for you to O so they'll be able to go into your next cycle with all guns blazing. I was blessed with my dd on my second FSH/IUI cycle, you can & will too! Mmmm, a Baileys sounds good in the meantime though! I hope you're in a big tight bear hug from your hubby right now xoxoxo
All the luck goes to you for this cycle now Heyside....it's definitely time for your BFP!!

Just wanted to check in with an update have been super busy.
Sorry if i miss anyone here will catch up as the thread goes on.
Furbabymum - Sorry to hear your out of the race this time. I'm pretty sure I am too. Hang in there and I totally hear you about everyone around you who is getting pregnant and being insensitve about it ive been dealing with for the last few months have tried to avoid everyway I could have gone so far as booking a cruise vacation for when its due and then a trip to the USA for Xmas so I won't have to deal with it. It's my brother and Sister in law and the stories keep changing on it. First they didn't want kids then it just happened then they had spent thousands doing nathuropath things and right before due to go to fertility specialist got pregnant so many inconsitencies and when they are around my husband and I who have been trying for over 2 years now they are now just showing everything off its so hurtful - Mothers day was most awful they are giving everyone presents what do I get nothing so i chirp up with well I guess people who have something with 4 legs and fur aren't worthy let me tell you the dead silence that followed as least it made them stop and think. I even want to cry as im writing this but thats probably AF coming back with her vengence. Cheers from here with my glass of wine. Sorry I can't remember but what kind of cycles are you doing?
Pjk - Thats awesome news Congrats.
Heyside - Good luck with your bt in the morning let us know how you go still in the race have all my fingers crossed for you and sending baby dust.
Ladydee - Glad to hear your back on track and ready to go sending lots of sticky vibes your way.
AFM - Still waiting on AF but i can feel its coming with vengence. The herbs worked but when we changed them up this last round has been nasty have an IVF appointment booked for next weeks so have taken the leap and will see where it leads so nervous and not holding much hope as I dont want to be disappointed i kind just feel numb at the moment and going thru at WTF why me process. Have had many breaking points this week lots of crying and not moving out of bed feel so lost don't have a lot of people ive told about this but have a few i can speak to about it which has helped. Friend at work whispered in my ear today have you started IVF yet im like no she saw the look on my face and her friends been thur it we sat a lunch togehter and she was like your not in a good state im like seriously no im no so lets just talk random **** which we did and was nice to not have to think too deeply about it. Im going to prepare and go in with guns blazing "POSITVITY" thats my new mantra oh and "POWER UP" this is what im telling myself now and to everyone out there find it in you just to keep going so we can all achieve our dream.

Ladydee - Thanks for the luck passed my way hun, not feeling too positive though so far
Twinkley - Sounds like you have gone through some hard times there with your brother and sister in law, you would think they would have some idea about what you are going through since they nearly ended up going down the same route. Big hugs hun hope you feel more positive when you have your IVF appointment next week.
AFM - Still waiting to hear my results from BT, i rang up yesterday and their office must have closed early and today I am waiting for someone to return my call. Not feeling too positive about getting a bfp as have no symptoms at all so far but suppose its not over yet so we will see. We have decided we will try one more injection cycle but we also question what our next step is so we can prepare ourselves. My Fs has previously mentioned doing some sort of exploritory surgery but not really sure how I feel about that

I hope you're travelling ok @furbabymum, I've been thinking about you. I hope you don't even reach that stage but you will find that you somehow dust yourself off and start looking forward to the next cycle faster and faster....maybe it's just because you start jabbing again and don't have time to dwell before you're nearly ready to O again?. You seemed to have a great uncomplicated cycle so I really believe you'll get that magic BFP very very soon xxx
I'm so sorry you've been having an extra hard time of it @Twinkley, this whole journey really really sucks doesn't it?! Big big hugs to you . Any sign of AF? Goodluck with your IVF appointment, let us know how you go! xx
@Heyside.... Anything yet? Having been prego a few times now, my biggest two symptoms are weeing ALOT and sore, achey boobs (at first only at random times throughout the day) but only really noticeable from about 12dpo. I reeeeally want this cycle to be your time. How did your blood results go?
AFM- well, here we go again....I was driving home from work adjusting what I thought was the-bra-from-hell and swearing I was going to throw it straight in the garbage when I got to thinking....and had a bit of a light globe moment. So I did a diluted POAS when I got home and it came up with a bit of a squinty positive! So cd1 was 20/4 and cd12 u/s on 2/5 showed not much happening with my polycystic covered ovaries with the two biggest follies at around 10mm. I noticed a tiiiny bit of CM on the 7/5. We got a bit of bding in there but it was just for fun as my FS said it didn't look as if I might O and I really didn't feel much happening either . So.....I have no idea when I O'd or conceived but I was due to go in for a blood test on Wednesday if AF hadn't showed anyway. If it showed I really didn't o and therefore AF would only come as break-away- bleeding probably a couple of weeks from now (my usual PCOS thing) they could give me something to bring on AF so I could guarantee a nice fresh new lining for my first IVF cycle. My progesterone came back at a pretty good ( for me) 51.8 and my hCG was 46.......46! I've never had one that low and don't know of anyone else who has who has gone on to have a successful pregnancy. Do any of you ladies?? So the mind-(something-that-rhymes-with)-DUCK begins. Any of you ladies who have been on this thread for the last 5 months will no doubt have some idea of what range of emotions I've been feeling, first with a positive in the first place, and then with such a low hCG result. My clinic has told me in the past, they like it over 100. I go for my second bloods on Tuesday which will really be the decider of if I'm going to have my third miscarriage in 5 months or maybe not. I've been crying ALOT (from disbelief and such a strong range of emotions) and feel like I'm going crazy. I think it's guaranteed that I'm going to be a mess wether my next results come back as really bad OR really good. Last time we even got to see what appeared to be a healthy heartbeat and growth on two scans at 7 & 9 weeks and it still ended terrible! I can only hope and pray that this will be my healthy take-home baby.....finally!

@Ladydee- it is amazing isnt it. I fell apart and by the next day I was feeling like "ok can we just get started on the next round already?!" (stil sad but just wanting to ge tthe show on the road!). I also asked the clinic "when do I get to speak to the dr again?" as only seen him once before we did IUI (apart from when he inseminated me lol). They said "after your 3rd IUI or at 7 weeks pregnant". Blow that. I rang and booked in for 2 days after I should know if round 2 fails so I can discuss going to IVF.
@Heyside - are you serious? They took your blood for a preg test and then never called you with results before setting up shop? leaving you to wait all weekend without knowing? I really hope that's not the case because it's hard enough to wait a few hours its torture to put someone through that an entire weekend!!! Can you POAS or might you get a false neg?
@Twinkley - I'm so sorry your family shows off! That's awful!!! I would have thought it is obvious that mothers' day would be painful for someone who is desperate to be a mum! I like your idea of getting away for xmas! Very sensible! Did you just do the one IUI cycle? I'm starting my 2nd IUI cycle now. But I've booked in to see the FS so if this 2nd one doesnt work I can discuss IVF. A work colleague did 3 IUI then 2 IVF. She said "I wish I hadnt wasted time on IUI". I dont want to waste time and money :S It's so hard to know. I do like that IVF has a higher chance of pregnancy! SOunds like a good talk with your FS about your options and prognosis could be helpful

@Ladydee oh honey! BIG HUGS! I cant imagine what you are going through. If I thought fertility treatment was a mindDuck it's nothing compared to what you have been through!!! Can they give you some hormones to help your hcg levels? Is there anythign they can do to help you sustain it?
AFM - so does fertility treatment make you bleed like crazy when AF arrives? I bled so badly at work yesterday I nearly had to leave work. I hope this isn't TMI but I was using a regular pad and a tampon at the same time and both were at capacity in not much over an hour! and please stop reading now if you are squeamish... but I had large blood clots too! It's quite disconcerting when you are at work with clients etc and having to go to the loo every hour! Fortunately, despite getting blood all over the place (the toilet seat, the floor of the toilet, my leg, and through my undies and pants!) it didnt get bad enough that it was visible to anyone else and I didnt stain my chair at work like I was fearful of all day long! Just another difficult part of the treatment I am guessing? I really wished I had been warned as I was lucy that I had enough pads on me at work when I normally dont carry so many!
