Congratulations Mrs Pump, they are fantastic results!
Thanks Rj, how did your bloods go? x
Aww Mrs Hopeful, that could totally be a pregnant hormone reaction too....I'll keep everything crossed that it is and you get to have a great happy shock also xoxo
Heyside- sorry about your hold up of results, that totally sucks I'm totally hanging for your results ! Have you felt any symptoms? It's hard to know though, I know. Good luck xoxo
How are you girls coping during your TWW Aussiecarla and Karmajane ? I hope your managing to keep busy and positive. Good luck ladies xx.
AFM- my second bloods showed that my hCG has risen nicely to 22,000 but my progesterone has halved down to 30.5 which is how it all went last time ( though my hCG is a lot better this time). All of my symptoms have disappeared apart from my morning sickness is getting worse but I've read that some girls get ms even after they've miscarried so I'm not paying to much attention to that. I had a freak out on Monday evening and ended up driving around town to a late night walk- in drs surgery and then A&E at my local hospital seeing if anyone could scan for the heart beat but no one could help me and probably just thought I was a little nuts. So I called my FS first thing (literally the first minute they were open!) on Tues morning and got my Thursday scan moved to Tuesday arvo. My FS wasn't liking the sound of my symptoms disappearing along with my progesterone dropping so he scanned my right away and...there was a heartbeat! SO relieved and shocked....again. I wasn't imagining things though as bub was 7+1 yesterday but was only measuring at 6+3. So my FS has given me the week off work to relax and take it easy and has booked me for another scan on Monday to see if bub has hung on and grown enough in those six days. I'm on progesterone support now and have booked in for some acupuncture tomorrow to hopefully help bub along. Nothing's easy huh?!

Oh Heyside that's a bummer. It's definitely frustrating. Hope the levels are where they need to be tho.
ELM - that's wonderful! So glad that things are going well. Not long til the 20th hope it goes quick for you.
Thanks girls I know it's still early so I can't be sure it's a failure just yet. I have been so good at being positive and not stressing but today it just came over like a wave. Thank god I was at home so when I burst into tears (on numerous occasions) no one saw lol bloody hormones. Feeling better now after half a block of chocolate ;-)

Oh Ladydee I would've been freaking out too, so glad that you heard your little bub's heartbeat. That's great that your FS got you straight in.
Rest up and take it easy. I'm sure bub just needs a little encouragement and he/she'll keep on growing nicely xx

Mrs hopeful I just want to hug you. On so Manny occasion have I been like it's all over. Esp this time I thought there was no possible way I was cycle day 23 by the time my hubby got home then I had a bit of spotting which must of been implantation. It's hard that you start off so optimistic then it gradually drops off.
Laydee- wooo the heartbeat is fantastic. They say once a heartbeat is obtained the mc rates drop by heaps so that's a major milestone well done and congratulations.
Elm- glad to hear all on track.
Rj85- how far r u now?
I booked into my ob today even tho I told him it's to early he said that he's happy with how my results look n will tell the clinic to keep him in the loop. My scan isn't booked until the 27th gah, slowest two weeks ever haha.

Glad to hear all our newly pregnant ladies are travelling well for the most part! Sending big strong growing vibes to Ladydee's bubba Can't imagine how excruciating the wait is for those of you itching to have your scans...and as for those of you still in the TWW, got everything crossed for you.
AFM: Nothing much going on. Had a crazy hive outbreak yesterday and had to stay home from work. Took some mild antihistamines (which I purchased specifically because they're ok for pregnancy...wishful thinking, lol) which knocked me out for like 2 hours. Think the hives might be stress related as they flare up every few days lately.
Anyway, went to see FS today. Can't really tell us much. He's sending DH for regular bloods and semen samples (every 2-3 weeks) so we can try to see what's happening. He says that if any viable sperm show up we'll freeze a few samples so we can try again. We also asked about donors. Apparently it's BYO donor these days and they recommend a donor related to hubby like his brother or father. NO WAY am I using his dad's sperm and I think I'd be weirded out using his brother's. Something to think about as a back up I guess but donor sperm has to be quarantined for 4 months anyway...so we're no further in sorting this all out but I guess we've at least got a plan.

OMG...WOW so lovely to come back to this thread and see so many BFP since I last checked in so exciting to see this must be the lucky thread.
Sorry I have been mia had a lot going on - new job that I don't like so trying to find something else (long story), moved house, and trying to sell a house overseas talk about stress. TTC kinda has taken a backseat for the last 2 months. It was kinda of nice to just BD when felt like without being told when to.
Been trying to catch up on this thread. I'm loving see all the BFP
RJ85 & ELM - A big Congrads with your IVF blessings hope everything is moving along nicely. Where are you both up to? Do you have your scans soon?
Ladydee - I'm so excited for you when I read your great news your about little miracle. Hope everything is travelling along nicely. Sending big sticky vibes.
Mrs Hopeful - Congrads on your first IVF transfer so exciting how was the procedure itself? Im still considering moving over the IVF. Hope all is travelling well when do you test?
Heyside - The dreaded TWW im glad I have not really noticed it in the last 2 months as was not really trying so was nice to have break does the sanity levels the world of good.To answer your question earlier about feeling when you ovulate after the trigger yes I have expericenced a lot of bloating and pain like a stabbing pain and its pretty spot on 36 hours later it feels awkward to walk and tend to want to lie down its horrible with past cycles i had 2 or 3 follies the one cycle where I had one wasn't too bad. Hope that helps you.
Mrs Pump - Congrads to you too hope everything is going along well for you. Sending big sticky Vibes. I love how you used the last of your injections and didn't tell your clinic I almost did that serval times with my FS as it seemed like he had no idea what was going on. I still have some injections sitting in my fridge and almost decided to do them this month but depending on what the nauthropath says tomorrow i'll decide then im really trying to let the build up of drugs get out of my system before starting up again.
Waving *HI* to Pjk, Karmajane & Aussiecarla - good luck with the injections and those in the TWW.
AFM - DH and I have not really been actively trying but just enjoying not having to take all the injections and scans and monitoring - have been taking the nathruopath tonics that are gag worthy but the upside of them - DH has suddenly go a lot of sex drive sorry *TMI* I know that I ovulated with out the the injections or drugs however ovulated on CD19 of a 30 day cycle and then CD 20 on a 35 day cycle but that was still similar to what was happening on clomid without the trigger shot seems like i can't ovulate on my own at the right time. Clomid did bring my cycle down to around between 27 or 29 days.
Back to the Nauthropath tomorrow for a consultation so will be asking a few questions on what to do next. Still looking into IVF and going to try accupuncture. I think i'll give it one or two more cycles with the eating healthy (organic), nathropath tonics, and just naturally TTC. After that should have enough $$$ saved up to move over to IVF but will be looking into a different FS as I was not happy with the one I was with he never seemed to know where we were up to or what was going we both got the feeling we were paying for his next boat or expensive car or 2nd house we seemed to be just a number.
If anyone has any good recommendations for FS or Accupunctrist in Brisbane please let me know would be much appreciated?

ELM - Great that your levels are all good hun, bet you are so excited for your scan will be lovely for you to see your little bubba.
Ladydee - Oh hun I can understand your panic and drive around town for help, thank goodness your FS got you in quickly for a scan to show you bubbas heart beat. Take this time now to relax and enjoy your pregnancy, forget about work and take the time you need.
Mrs Hopeful - I understand you be emotional hun this whole journey can be so frustrating, the stress of everything we go through really doesn't help us to achieve our goal does it , hope you feel much better today hun.
MrsPump - Great that your ob is happy with your results and sounds like they are keeping a close eye on you which is good.
KarmaJane - Sounds like the stress of everything might be getting to you too hun causing the hives, hope you manage to relax and you get some relief. As I said to MrsHopeful the stress of this whole situation can be so counter productive sometimes can't it, not sure what we can do about that though as I know relaxing is easier said than done. Great that your DH can give regular samples and freeze whatever sperm he produces. As regards the donor sperm are you sure there is no unknown donor bank you can use? Does it not depend on the clinic you use and their individual policies. I am only asking as I know my clinic is pretty big on getting donors from local men, they have a big drive at the moment online and through the radio, apparently its something they strive to do instead of using sperm from overseas. I am not sure where you are located but might be worth looking at other clinics and there policies - just a thought.
Twinkley - Welcome back hun, sounds like you have been very busy with moving house and new job, hope you find another one soon though if you are not happy. Nice that you have been able to relax and enjoy the bd which is something we don't often experience during this whole ttc experience. Thanks for the advice on how you felt with only one follicle as I have apsolutely nothing this cycle and not feeling very positive but we will see you never know. Hope all the naturopath potions work for you hun.
AFM - I ring for my results later, hoping for good news at least that I did ovulate as still feeling nothing at all, good news no sign of af but also no other signs either so that's not good - breasts aren't hurting, no cramps no nothing

frustrated.com, can't get hold of the people I need to speak to for results and to be honest I am over ringing around and then waiting all day for phone calls. Think I am just getting over emotional about it all but just over it, feel like I am just being annoying and perstering everyone

Ok finally got my results from the receptionist at my FS office - seems I was feeling nothing as I didn't ovulate, upset is an understatement I am completely devastated. We have been at this for well over 6 months now and when I look back we have actually only had one good chance at catching a follie out of 3 cycles of injections and the rest of the time has been a complete waste of time. Unsure what to do from here to be honest, I can go to my fertility clinic and decide what to do next with there help or stick with just my fertility specialist as he said he would take over scans from here if I wanted but not sure who to trust from here to be honest. My clinic has let me down on several occasions over the past few months and they get me frustrated, I had lots of trust in my FS (he delivered dd and I think he is great) but in the back of my mind now I am thinking did he even see a follie or did I just pay all that money to ovulate a cyst of some description??? As far as money goes - what an absolute waste, we are struggling generally at the minute anyway with only DH working and definitely haven't been able to afford these last 2 cycles which have just been a waste of time with no chance of conceiving.
