    Congratulations on being PUPO @Blue246
    My fingers are crossed that you get your positive soon. When is your blood test? Do you have any gut feelings?
    Sounds like they've got you covered in the medication department. This one will be your Earthside baby. I can feel it x

    Thanks @Spec,
    I really have no clue this time around....Less preg feelings I think than any other time but maybe that's because I am on a medicated cycle (last cycle was natural for me so can't compare that or to my natural conceptions).
    I also can't test too early this time around cos I took ovidrel boosters last week which means my hcg reading is positive for another week or so regardless of whether there is a baby in there or not. Frustrating! Blood test is friday. So much waiting! Thanks for thinking of me!

    Hey guys.
    I've been MIA for a while. I think i have had 2 transfers since i checked in last. One i finally ended up pregnant but the heartbeat slowed and baby stopped developing at 6w6d. Found at at 8w at my OB appt. Had a D&C and testing came back as Trisomy 8. Had another transfer 2 weeks ago today bloods came back today at a 7 should be 75. I have had 4 transfers (2x 3d & 2x5d) and 8 embryos left. I will be pushing for 2 this time. Prue said i can have a back to back cycle rather than waiting a month like normal but nurses said she would call tomorrow to confirm as i had HCG. I really want to get started ASAP as i dont bleed naturally even after the MC so i need to start provera again. It will likely be our last go this year as finances are tough doing this every 2-3 months for 2 years. Dont even want to think how much i have handed over in those 2 years but i could imagine it's a lot. I think all up i am on cycle 10+ now.

    I have also been on Utrogesten. Its a new vaginal cap rather than the Crinone or Pesseries. To be honest i much prefer it. Prue said its very new out im one of the first at the clinic to use it. It has much less... discharge... and is so much better. However once you fall pregnant it is back up to $100 a box so i assume ill switch back to the pesseries if that happens.

    Has anyone had 2 embryos put back? I have spoken to Prue previously about this so i feel she will be onboard. I figure if i dont get pregnant from two and 4 failed transfers maybe its time for a break. X

    @Blue246 not being able to test at home must be so frustrating. The waiting part sucks big time. Friday is nearly here so I hope you have a few things to distract you in the next few days.
    @ivfstruggle I'm so sorry for your loss. There is absolutely nothing worse than going into an ultrasound only to find your precious baby doesn't have a heartbeat. I'm sorry your most recent transfer hasn't been successful either.

    I'm glad you're finding your new medication better than crinone. Such a shame the price changes after you're pregnant.

    I have no experience with transferring two, but it definitely sounds like it's time to try something different. I have everything crossed for you.

    Hi Girls,
    Unfortunately I'm out this month. I caved and did home tests after all. It's 9d55dt and the line on my preg tests has been getting fainter each day instead of darker....today's just a squinter. So the line was only the ovidrel leaving my body and not a pregnancy. Back to the drawing board.
    Ivf struggle -so sorry to hear you are also having a rubbish time too. I think transferring two could be a good idea for you too.

    I'm not sure if you're still getting these messages, but I hope you're all well.
    I'd love an update on your progress, and hopefully pregnancies.

    Hi everyone. It has been a looong time since I checked in.
    We welcomed our little miracle 3 weeks ago. He has brought us such joy and made the journey worth it. I have never been so happy. My DH and I both have extended leave and have enjoyed being in our own little bubble with our baby.
    I have had a terrible pregnancy since I last checked in here - severe illness, anxiety and prenatal depression. I couldn't ever shake the dread something would go wrong with the pregnancy or birth. It took over my life and I really didn't think I could love my baby due to the fear. Of course I hid my symptoms from everyone I possibly could which explains why I haven't been on here for so long. My DH was amazing and we made it through the pregnancy to our chosen elective c-section. Hats off to my ob who never worried about affecting her "statistics" on her caesarean rates and suggested what was best for my mental health and supported my decisions. I never ever wanted a c-section until I fell apart during the pregnancy. I could barely cope with a normal day and could not cope with anything I couldn't control.
    The weight that lifted off my shoulders when the pregnancy and birth was over and they handed me my baby was amazing. I held him immediately, cleaned him up myself and haven't for a second doubted we loved him.
    IVF is rough. The highs the incredible lows the hormones! There were a lot of factors that contributed to my depression.
    And it was still worth it!
    I can see most of you haven't checked in for quite some time. I hope you are all well and there is lots of pregnancy news here soon!

    Oh @sunny79 I'm so glad to hear from you and that you're little one is finally here

    I'm so sorry to hear that you had an awful pregnancy. It is so cruel that the emotion toll of infertility doesn't end when we become pregnant. I actually found I struggled emotionally for the first few months post baby, and I honestly believe that was because of infertility. For so long I just felt like I was never good enough for our little one and didn't deserve to be so blessed.

    What an amazing OB you have though, I'm so glad you found someone that supported your choices and focussed on your mental health and not just the physical side of things. Too often that side is overlooked.

    Thank you for checking in, enjoy that oxytocin bubble xx
