    welcome back @amie999 & good luck for your cycle too

    I'm sitting out this one & having a break till my af returns and will think about things over the next month or so. I think I need a bit longer to process everything

    @Charlie74 I'm glad you've popped in and I totally understand what you're saying. Sometimes I think all the effort is just not worth it when in my gut I don't think it will ever work. I'm no longer as committed to ivf as I was before and kind of feel like I've already given up but just going through the final motions. How much longer do you have to take the lining drug?

    @CAEsurdust and @Charlie74 exactly how I feel. I'm just not sure i can keep going. However hubby and decided a while ago post mc that we are doing x2 cycles with wazza miracle meds and if it doesn't work then we are walking away. Its really tough though to make that decision.

    @Charlie74 yes I've felt that way too, even going into this de pathway sometimes it just seems too hard. On some levels I wonder whether we should just give up and concentrate on living a fulfilling life just us. I wonder what kind of mother I would make given how much work I love doing and how it will affect our marriage, we never really fight but I imagine kids would change that to some degree. I know that they are normal thoughts for anyone thinking about parenthood. But I think I'm too scared of giving up and all that that would bring, and whether I would look back and regret it. I think that's what keeps me going is that I think I would regret not trying the de thing. But it does seem all too hard as well. I just hope our donor story is positive and short!!

    I hope you can let some of the stress go when you go on your trip and really have a fabulous holiday.

    We went to the meet up today for the EDA group and stayed an hour or so and it was nice to meet some of the others whom I've been chatting too. Sadly bongley was sick and didn't make it but maybe we will meet at another one.

    Good luck to the girls starting this week xx

    @Charlie74 yes, I've felt like this too and am feeling it a bit now. like the universe has given us plenty of signs with the failures, though the positive parts have given me/us hope too. I guess the next part is deciding on/proceeding with the DE or stopping. I hope your lining problem will be overcome soon

    @Maxwellsmum, @Gagini. @CAErsurdust I'm with Monash Qld but because i'm in Victoria i don't really have a lot of contact with the clinic.
    They have sent my pack down and it should arrive Tuesday - when i start with the info on the injections but i dont have the details yet.
    I have been really up and down about doing the cycle at all this time...maybe after a long break it is harder to get the courage up, knowing whats ahead.
    But the thought of not trying hard enough convinces me in the end.
    @tuxcat good luck with your ED journey - is that in Australia ?
    Thanks @winsor

    Has anyone else found it difficult to talk to friends about the process ? I find that people don't really know what to say so they don't really want to talk about it.

    Thanks @Maxwellsmum is that with DrWazza ?
    I'm doing this last cycle with Monash and am on the waiting list for him.
    I have the scan form but that's it until the package arrives.
    I made the decision to go ahead very late so that's why the timing is tight.

    I feel a bit funny about the whole thing because i havent even spoken to Kee for a year, but i'm guessing because we've done it all before they aren't bothered.
    Sometimes i feel like its a bit of a money machine for them, rather than feeling like a patient they are invested in helping.

    @amie999 thanks yes we are looking for a local donor through egg donation australia. It was actually quite nice to talk to people today who know EXACTLY what you are talking about, I don't think Ive ever been in that situation before IRL. Someone actually said "BFP" and I laughed as Ive never actually heard it said! I do have a couple of friends that I talk about it with, they never ask me about it all so I don't feel any pressure to talk, I just bring it up if I feel like it. Its great. Some of my other friends who I don't see that often I feel like its such a big thing in their lives having kids that it makes me feel like they think its all that matters. Those friends i don't discuss it with or try not to see them very much! Yeah, we are the best ones to talk it through with!

    I chose not to talk about IVF with all but my closest friends. Even then I just mentioned that we were going to start and didn't go into the details. I didn't want to put any more pressure on the process by having people ask how we were doing. It turns out I was right. No-one knows about the 6 cycles or how many eggs we got that were duds. I only mentioned the chemical pregnancy months after it happened.
    As you gilrs have said: no-one knows what to say. And when they do say something it's generally not helpful.

    Thanks for asking @Caesardust, I'm doing ok. Still reading along.. Everything 'baby' seems a little foreign to me right now I have to say... I know I've said this before, but I feel like my lining is going to be my Achilles heel & will stop us from ever having a child, either OE or DE. I can't get that thought out of my head.

    Do any of you ever Just feel like even though you want it so badly, maybe u should just accept that it's too late? That u missed that boat and u should just accept it? That's how I'm feeling lately.
    @Tahli if ur reading along, and if ur 6mths in a holding pattern is out of ur own control, then I understand how ur probably feeling luv. It's really really difficult to stay positive or hopeful when you have to wait 6 mths, especially at this age. I feel like I'm in limbo. If u want to chat I'm here X
    @Charlie74, I completely understand how you're feeling. I'm nowhere near as brave as you girls, I've only done two cycles with Genea in Sydney at the end of last year, both were BFNs and it was devastating. I've recently turned 44 and I wonder do I even try again? I desperately want children (being the eldest of 6 you just assume it will happen) but at the same time I think perhaps it's now too late. Infertility is a long lonely road and my friends and family moved in different directions because they had kids and I didn't. It's everyone's personal choice about timing and when to stop, I worry I will regret not having another go and I hope I can make the right decision soon. Maybe DEs are the only option now because I'm sooo old!!! Then I wonder, do I give Wazza a go but by the time I get in I'll be very close to 45!
    Best of luck to everyone cycling, it's exciting to follow along with you, I really hope you're successful in becoming Mummas.
    @Tahli, I've been thinking about you a lot. I hope you are feeling better and are beginning to get some clarity about your movements for the next few months. These girls are very much caring about you, it's lovely to have such a warm group of ladies who are on your team. Take care of you xxx
