    @Keiko2012 I'm glad you have a plan for what you'll do next. Egg quality is a problem for me too despite still being relatively young. When we first looked at doing ivf, everyone thought it would work so quickly for us because we were so young and healthy. Sigh. Are you doing anything specific to try and improve yours? I'm taking supps, doing TCM/Acupuncture and trying to be generally healthy. God knows whether it has had any effect or not.
    @BecT Fingers crossed things are getting started in there - come on AF!

    Afm, I've been sniffing for a week now and took my last dose of the pill last night. So AF should start in a couple of days and then I'll start jabbing early next week. But I can TOTALLY relate to the fear you ladies were talking about. Although I'm glad to be finally going again, all of a sudden I'm completely consumed by anxiety. I'm worried my scan on Monday will show a cyst, or another endometrioma or some other problem that will stop us going ahead. I'm worried I won't respond as well as I did last time. Or that I'll respond too well, and get OHSS. I'm worried all our embryos will arrest and we'll have nothing to transfer. I'm worried about having another chemical, MC, or heaven forbid, another ectopic. God, it was the most awful experience I have been through. I can't cope with the thought of it happening again. Just worry worry worry! Gah! Oh well, on the plus side, I just started watching Bridget Jones which has got to be one of the best movies ever made. I'm 5 mins in, and am already feeling better.

    Hooray for imminent jabbing @MrsChino! I wish there was a way we could shut off the worry and think like men for a bit (seriously, dh is so flipping rational about things it makes me feel loopy lol). I wanted to watch Bridget Jones but he turned it off. Awwwww. Didn't think about that movie when i named dd Bridgette and so many people asked me about her diary and it had me puzzled. Duh lol.

    AF is here! Still can't do anything this cycle but it is one step closer. Need to try and eat really well etc etc so the next one isn't insanely delayed (which always happens when I need to get it lol)

    Oh yay for AF @BecT! Definitely a big step in the right direction. And I love the name Bridgette - diary or no diary it's a gorgeous name

    Yay glad you get to stop the sniffing soon! And you get to check what's happening at your appt. I know I am also very cautious at every scan. But have my fingers crossed it's all looking good for you.

    I haven't really purposefully done anything for my egg quality as I was hoping that. Wouldn't need to be in this position for a while. But a month ago I've gotten a new cocktail of vitamins ( from what wazza recommends). So now taking megafol, berocca, vit e, coq10, zinc, iron ( found out I was anaemic last week), fish oil and thyroxine for my hypothyroid. Every now and then I take a melatonin but read this is only really important when stimming. Also read somewhere about taking royal jelly? I might need to add this- I am willing to throw everything at it. Feel like I am swallowing a whole pharmacy every morning he he. So fingers crossed it's done something. Also have been having acupuncture since nov and taking Chinese herb tea's but I forget these most days... What's TCM? I know I can't believe I have egg quality issues - hoping it was a once off. We went down the Ivf route due to my DP that's azoo. Never thought I'll be having issues as well. And I've also got PCO. I was also under the belief that you walk into an Ivf clinic and at least after 2 cycles it would've worked. Well I've got cycle 7 on my papers now....

    Hugs @keiko! That was like our first 2 rounds. There was 3 staff pregnant and it was so awkward because they were trying to hide it from me. It was seriously alienating. Fingers crossed it is you next lovely xoxo

      Hi @Keiko2012. Firstly sorry I have been a ghost on the forum for while, it can be hard to keep up. I'm so Sorry to hear about your work experience. It's very hard hearing how easily it is for everyone to fall pregnant BUT US!! And then of course the flippant, ' oh I'm you'll just fall soon, just relax' Infertility is still not recognised as a genuine disease. Disappointing really. Nonetheless, that's what we're here for to keep encouraging each other. Keep us posted on your progress - you are inspiring me I've just transferred across to Sterling so looking forward to our first appt with a new FS ☺️
