Hi ladies, I have been a bit MIA lately just trying to focus on things. At my scan on Wednesday I was give Ovidrel and had a bit of a discussion and it has been concluded that this will be my last ovulation induction before I move onto IVF. I find out if I am pregnant on the 29th July and then I have an appointment booked to see the specialist to discuss the next step on the 11th. I really hope I dont make the appointment.
Those that have gone down this pathway - did you get your police check before the appointment? I have completed the details just need to post but wondering if I should wait to see if I am pregnant or not IYKWIM?
I have been looking online but I cannot find much on the timeline from seeing specialist and having counselling to being implanted?
I am kind of excited but freaking out at the same time..

I can't believe you have to get police clearance in other states to do IVF. I got mine earlier this year for my TAFE course. Took nearly 3 months to come back to me.

Yes it's pretty s*** considering a smack is can just get knocked up and nothing is required it's so unfair!

Heyside - I'm trying my very best to give you the time you need but please know that you are constantly in my thoughts 😘 I hope with all of my heart that you are cautiously celebrating a surprising BFP............ but if the world just wants to be a little more stab-you-in-heart kinda cruel, then I hope you're coping ok and remembering that I'm/we're right here ready to celebrate with or listen and empathise right with you Xxxxx

@Excited1 - been thinking of you also, drop us a line when you can to let us know all is ok. I sure hope that bleeding has managed to rack off for good now! Have they found where it's coming from yet? When I was having my big bleeds I was talking to another Hubber who was having major pouring-of-blood episodes and she did get a diagnosis of Peri-Gestational bleeds from the edge of the placenta.....she had episodes of leaving puddles of blood on the A&E floor and feeling blood pouring and pooling out of her onto the table while in the middle of a scan where she could see her bub happily wriggling around on the screen! She was my absolute inspiration to try and not give up hope each time I had a bleed. Xxx
@kiki1 - how are you going? Have all of your results come back now? So that was a high NK cell result huh? It's one of those things where you don't want anything to come back out of whack but then again, at least you have something to try and fix/work with for your next cycle....better to be informed than just naively hoping huh?! Going on the Pred/Clexane mix changed everything for me and even though it wasn't easy with all of the bleeds....it helped give us our sticky. Finally!! 😌
@Yolandac31 - have you POAS yet?? Not long to go until your bloods....fingers tightly crossed for you! I'm in QLD so never had to get any police checks. I did have to get one a few years back when I moved to Canada for a couple of years and I don't remember it taking too long though I went to a small station out in the suburbs. Just like OI, I started injecting for IVF from cd2 so it will depend on your cycles when you start. I didn't have cycles (apart from straight after another miscarriage) so I had to take a course of Provera to bring on a cycle, then start my injections from cd2. Best of luck hun x
Hope you're travelling along ok too @allykat111 ☺️
AFM- 7 days until we meet this kid in mah belly

Hi ladies I am back, have read along a little bit over the last week and decided it's about time I rejoined the world of bubhub. Thank-you everyone for your thoughts over these last few weeks love having a place where people understand. My last cycle ended up as a bfn as expected after my embie didn't re-expand.
I spent the last 3 weeks or so preparing myself for another cycle and researching where to go from here. I don't know if this was a good idea or not as somehow I feel too informed now. I watched a series of webinars on the 'Sher institute' website which is an American research centre for ivf. These videos made lots of sense and explained to me why my embryos were of such poor quality. My last stimulated cycle I was at such a high risk of OHSS that I was triggered far too early and I probably only had 2 or 3 eggs that were mature enough. I read a lot of information about coasting and allowing follies to mature whilst the oestrodial drops. I don't think this is something done too much over here in Australia though.
We had a follow up appointment with our Fs last week and he didn't seem very positive about the idea of coasting. He actually laughed at how informed I was and I actually questioned him on a number of things. He suggested an antagonistic cycle using menopur. I had my doubts on this since my research told me menopur contains lh and I have extremely high levels of lh anyway. I said I would have to think about it so we see him again on Friday. I am pleased he is willing to try something new this cycle and that's why I like him as he knows the last protocol didn't work for me. My nurse is also doing more research for me on this. What do you girls think about this protocol?
My appointment with wazza has been moved forward to September but we have decided to try this last cycle with my current Fs in the mean time as we do like him and he is pro active, my old nurse said I am in the right place with him as he is the most proactive in the practice. We decided we couldn't put our self on wazza's cancelation list as its just too difficult with DD with having no family around to help us.
We have found the last few weeks very difficult discussing where to go from here and dh and I have had some heated discussions which is hard. Dh thinks I have done too much research and I should leave all that to the dctrs but I think if he's honest the whole situation just makes him nervous especially as he doesn't really understand what's going on. All this will make us stronger though and we will come out of this on the other side.
Sorry I have gone on a bit, will try and catch up with everyone.

Heyside, I love it!!!! In all of my time in the infertility world (with getting my dd and this bub) as soon as I've seen ladies start getting pro-active in their own cycles and research and NOT just sitting back and blindly following everything that their Drs tell them is when they start getting the results they want!!! I've seen this happen time and time again over the years talking to patients through my work who have other health issues and are not in the infertility world too. The FS's are the experts who we have to trust and respect at the end of the day but I honestly believe it's got to be a balance where even if your own research does nothing but get you to start suggesting things out of the box and asking all of the right questions, then that's perfectly enough to push your FS to the best of their knowledge and expertise and encourage them to keep digging to find out what else (apart from the obvious initial diagnosis) might be going on. You can bet everything you own that if your FS found themselves experiencing a health problem in a field they have no idea about and not getting any results, they would be doing the exact same thing...researching other avenues and getting second, third and even fourth opinions! I can't stand it when some FS's have their patients trying the same darn thing over and over and over again when it's obviously not working and wondering why it's not getting the result they're after?!!....drives me insane!! 😡
Will you get your frosties moved to Warren if need be in Sept?
Hun, I'm so so sorry this last cycle didn't work out, I was so hoping you'd be back reporting a completely different result 😞 It wasn't a wasted cycle though....this is the best "oven" set up you've got yourself to...just need to get yourself a perfect, healthy Bun to go in it! Xxx
Have you looked into Royal Jelly as a supplement for egg quality yet? I took it in tablet form but I've heard the fresh stuff is even better (stop it with your BFP).
