@Leisylou Oh, FFS's Luv!!! I was so hoping you'd get over the line this time!! I wish it wasn't so hard for you either...for any of you Lovelies, in fact
Yes, PMS just makes things bloody worse sometimes too, sh*t of a thing it is!! I say get stuck into a few vino's and a big, fat bag of Clinkers Luv!! Take a couple of days off the regime and indulge I say!! Farrkk it!!
LOL's about your furbaby!! A wee little dog trapped in a giant's body by the sounds of it!! A big, furry blanket to keep you both warm!! I used to let our furbaby (before he passed away back in late 2010) sleep on the end of the bed with us in winter!! Our bed is really low to the ground and he was a half German Shepherd/Rottweiler (more shepherd looking), and all 50 odd kilo's of him used to sleep on my side, so I had to curl up in the foetal position just so he could fit!!!
Ha!! I remember when DP had to do a sample at home for me to run down to the local Pathology place way back when we were investigating what the problem was. No porn room and beer fridge for him!! Most of them do get off lightly, but at least mine has had a small taste of what it was like for me after having been TESA'd twice!!
Wazza did him the second time and "drilled his balls" (verbatim) multiple times in multiple locations (at my request) looking for swimmers as we didn't quite know where the blockage is that he has, so WDA tried the Epididymis then thought he'd try the Vas Deferens as well just in case!! Suffice to say, it was one sore and sorry DP that was wheeled into recovery that day!!!

OMG BIB!!! Your poor DH!!! He certainly did get a little taste of what we go through! Wazza offered to drill DH's balls if he was too shy to give a sample, so I made him that offer and he nearly died!! I think he'll get over his shyness if that is the only other option
How funny about your big doggie sharing the bed and taking up most of your side! Ours isn't allowed inside much so she makes the most of it when she is - and yep, she doesn't understand that 45kg doesn't fit in our laps!
AFM - Fruck it AF arrived on a 25 day cycle with no notice at all. Oh well, back on the drill - don't even know if I can summon up the energy to bother with clinkers today :-(. I'm so over it, I just want it to work and have that little bubba with my DH... One more month of natural / supplement / juice junkie and then I'll go IVF. Bloody hell, I was hoping it wouldn't come to this. But weren't we all

@Blonde yes, I'm still here. Just been very quiet. Hit absolute rock bottom. With 'suprise' pregnancy announcements popping left to right (at work, etc.), insensitive comments about how happy I should be not worrying about kids stuff. Absolutely mentally exhausted. When I called clinic few weeks back to cancel further cycles coz i needed break, she just told me I need counselling. But counselor won't see me only, has to be both. So not happening.
@Bongley my hat off to you for progressing so fast with DE option. We won't be taking that route... We have agreed to disagree.
@Fudge09 awesome awesome news! You truly deserve it. From yr signature it was a long journey. Little man sign from up there.
@tuxcat few glasses wont matter! May even stick better. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you!
I'm still laughing about the DHs stuff you guys been writing here... Beer fridges...Shyness... Hilarious! Aren't they big sissies!!!!
Hi to everybody else here. Apologies again for not being so proactive. But I'm cheering from sideline!

Oh farrk that Leisy. Sorry it's a bust this month . Think I'll be joining you with a BFN in a few days. Used one of those stupid expensive clear blue digital ov monitors, and got a super early (for me) solid smiley. BD'd heaps around that time and then stopped. Then realised I had flooded the monitor with urine so it was a fruiting false positive. Missed ovulation altogether grrrrrrrrr. Well yeah, ivf is there waiting for you when you're ready.
Hi MaxKat. I hope you're coming back up from rock bottom, not a nice place.
Thinking of all the QLD girls, Leisy, Blonde, Fudge (anyone else) with this crazy weather.
Staying with the theme of wine, think I'm going to have quite a few nice glasses tonight at an expensive wine bar. One of my only comforts is doing things that 'the kidddie people' (the name DH and I use collectively for our friends and my sisters who have kids) can't easily do. Apologies to those of you here who do already have kiddies.

Hello to everyone enduring their cycles.
So, I saw my doctor yesterday and it was a bit depressing. We told him we want to do another stimulated cycle, so he's put me on Dhea for 6 weeks and coq10. We'll do the cycle next next period but the one after.
We'll do growth hormone and the 34 hour trigger.
Good news he said it's ok to do lots of exercise and running etc.
Bad news he said I probably am in perimenopause but the menopause doesn't happen overnight and the start is your period getting irregular.
At the end of the appointment, though he said the outcome is likely to be disappointing. I don't know why he didn't say that at the start but my husband says that it still is the same as a one in five chance or a 20% success rate. He's just being honest.
We'll still give it a shot as hubby reckons I'd regret it if I didn't and we still have a chance. Just not a great one. Then if it doesn't work we have a big break and move on to plan b.
Ah well, life sucks but what can you do! I am very blessed with my boys so here goes the roller coaster and I'm going to go crazy working out!

Good for you Skylar, enjoy that glass of wine on me. There are definitely some benefits not having kids.

@MaxKat Oh Luv... Just what you don't need when you've hit rock bottom (as well as the Preggo announcements) is insensitive pr*cks waxing lyrical and trotting out the usual crap like "you don't know how good you've got it without kids" or my personal favourite that was said to me "there's more to life than kids". Well, that's easy for them to say isn't it Luv when they'll never know what it's like being on the other side of the fence, hence the thoughtless comments!! F/Wits!!!!
I'm surprised and disappointed that the counsellor won't see you on your own...WTF?? Would it be worth going to your GP and getting one of those "Mental Health Plans" that'll give you access to a counsellor/psychologist for a substantially lower price?? Bugger about the DE route being off the table too
I'm not surprised you're mentally exhausted Luv. Hoping the break will do you good and that you'll be back "firing on all fours" as soon as possible. You don't need to apologise for anything either ok?? You just go do what you have to do allright?? I just gave you a shout out to say "I see you" more than anything
@Skyler Well, that's a bloody annoying "Ooops" isn't it Luv?? Are you sure it would've been a false positive?? anyway, because you never freaking know!!!
No need to apologise for squat Luv!! Hope you have a fantabulous night at the wine bar. Tie one on I say!! Have (quite) a few for me too Girl!!!
@Luckyme1 I'm sorry it didn't go quite as well as you hoped That's a real sh*tter about the Peri menopause too, but your FS is right, it usually takes years before the "Big M" happens, so am sure there'll still be eggs for the taking!! At least your FS is being proactive and giving you different things to try with the DHEA and HGH etc.
Of course you're still in with a chance however small and you know yourself the odds can be beaten. I think your DH is right that you'll always be left wondering if you don't give it one last try. I most definitely would if I was in your shoes. You've got a solid Plan B in place as well which is great. I'm you won't need it and you'll get your "lucky last" BFP too

@Leisylou sorry AF made an appearance, it never feels any easier even when you sort of expect it to happen. I hope you got some wine and clinkers in!!
@MaxKat those pregnancy announcements suck, I don't know why but its the pregnancy bit that makes me sad not the baby arrival bit that does. Once the baby is here Im over it! Im always amazed at how easy people can do it all. I cant understand why you cant go solo to counselling, I would question it with them and say that its you that needs to talk to someone. I hope you are feeling somewhat better, its just a real rollercoaster ride, I know I have really down time and then I bounce back being ok. Its always there though, lurking in the back. And thanks for the luck vibes, Im going to need all the luck I can get.
@Skyler a wine bar sounds absolute bliss, we just got an invite to a friends' bday drinks at a great bar on friday and Ive been pondering whether we can go. I usually just don't so that there is no temptation to drink, and this is where I just am so over this ttc thing. I hope you had an awesome night and enjoyed sumptuous amounts of gorgeous wine!!
@Luckyme1 all you can do is try, and move on with your plan B if it doesn't happen.
@leyshoja how are you doing?
@Fudge09 hope you are working things out and feeling good about your bub settling itself in for the next 8 months.
AFM I am feeling much better after being very unwell yesterday. So I was ovulating yesterday morning and boy did I feel terrible. I could hardly move and needed constant heat packs to be able to get up out of bed to go to the loo. I have also developed a flu type thing and so have been having heat attacks and was vomitting last night too. I started to get worried that something was wrong so I called the emergency Dr at the clinic and he basically said he thought it was flu on top of the ovulation pain and to just take panadol. I had also started the clexane and upped the prednisolone plus am taking an antibiotic 3 times a day so I was a bit scared to take panadol! So today has been better, I still felt pretty crap this morning but have now eaten some proper food and am feeling nearly normal so hope that was all just related to the ovulation. I have to say, yesterday I felt so terrible that really started to question how much more of this I can take. I feel like Im stuffing all these drugs and procedures into my body without thinking much about it and just hope that long term it doesn't do me any damage. The things we do when we want a baby are actually quite insane when you think about it. Im just so tired of all this pain and suffering, I really am. I cant even begin to think about what the next steps will be if this doesn't work. urrgggh. Anyway, I am thankful to be feeling human today, after all the egg collections Ive had Ive never felt that bad. Its seems Im better off someone else taking out the eggs rather than my body bursting them out!
hi to all the lovely ladiezzz

Geez Tuxcat, sorry you've had such a rough time of it. That sounds very odd indeed, flu like symptoms and vomiting you poor thing. Could you have had a reaction to any of your medications? After such a stressful week at work it sux that your weekend was so unrelaxing. Just hoping that sperm has met egg .
Good luck for your final roll of the dice Lucky.
Hi to everyone else, hope you've all had a great weekend.
