ScubaGal my 42 yr old blastocysts really struggle so I knew a morula was very unlikely. Anyway, thanks for the cheering on the side I really appreciate it
I stopped breastfeeding my son when he was 6 months old to start to try conceiving again and I sometimes wonder if I should have tried earlier. My periods have been really erratic since then which has delayed things a fair bit too. Time slips away before you realise it!

@Bongley so true re time. Or you 'underestimate' just how long it'll take to actually achieve your take-home baby.
Wishing you much more success for Nov hun; hope you'll get to see the year out with another bub on board xx

Thank you to @babygirl7 for directing me from the Sept to this Oct thread! I am new to both IVF and bubhub but I feel so much better prepared for my first cycle due to all the frank and honest discussion going on here. So thank you!!
(Expecting AF in the next week or so to start a high dose cycle - due to my low AMH; with ICSI - due to hubby's dodgy sperm....

hi @Topdeck welcome to October!
How was everyone's weekend? some have a long one. I am forced to have a day off today as everyone on my project is in other states with labour day holiday. Maybe will pass the time by catching up on sleep (insomnia)

@Bongley - so sorry Hun I was really hoping you would get that BFP
For the ladies who are PUPO - be kind to yourself and trust your gut. I tried to convince myself my spotting and 4dp5dt was implantation when in my gut I knew it was my period coming and then 6dp5dt it arrived - along with the news my progesterone was only at 30 - trust your guts - if something doesn't feel right call your nurses and demand answers.
To the ladies with their BFP's - congratulations and I hope it is a strong, sticky and healthy 9 months
AFM - had my blood test this morning - just a formality and I wish I didn't have to get up early on a public holiday to go in the clinic where there were all these people just starting their cycles knowing mine was over - we are looking at a December or January cycle.
It's our 5 year wedding anniversary next weekend - certainly never would have imagined 5 years ago we would have gone through everything we have.

Good luck today @babygirl7! Let us know how you go.

@KayzB & Bongley I agree we often underestimate time. When I first looked into IVF at the start of this year I was looking at women's ages and statistics and overall health (eg non smoker) based on that alone I thought it may take me a few cycles to get pregnant. Now that I have done two cycles and I keep finding more and more things 'wrong' with me... everyone is different and some woman get a take home baby first cycle, but when you go through a cycle and see all the different steps and how you can potentially fall down at each stage, you gain info only through experience ... I never read this in the brochure!!!
I am happy I have a FS who tells things to me straight. Throughout this year I have had many appointments and most doctors beat around the bush, I would have preferred someone just say to me. Do IVF. NOW.

@Topdeck I hope you don't mind me asking but I've noticed from your signature that you are unable to proceed with inter country adoption. I'm sorry as we have that as our long term contingency I'd be interested to understand what May have been the road block for you guys? ( Feel free to PM me if you would rather not mention on the thread. ) either way.. Good luck with your first ICSi!
