    And the second is that I ended up in hospital - again - last night at 11.30pm You know how I was banging on about a weird colour in the toilet. Well, there was a miscalculation it seems. My urine has now turned a deep orange/brown colour. And I have been SO TIRED the past three or four days. Tired to the point where I slept 4 hours on the couch yesterday, and I NEVER have afternoon naps. Tired like I am going to faint. So when I did a wee last night and it looked like coca cola I hot-footed it to the hospital.

    One of two options. 1. It's a reaction to my new BP meds, so I've stopped those momentarily until I see my GP or 2. Another bl00dy UTI Blood was present in my urine so I've been prescribes antibiotics by the hospital. And I had my GP appointment moved from tomorrow to 11am this morning.

    Drama, drama, drama.

    Oh FFS's Luv!!!! Can imagine the shock when you looked down and saw that in the bowl!!!

    How did you get on at the GP's???

    Hopefully it's nothing major going on there Luv!!!

    Those biscuits looks delish!!!!!

    @tuxcat is this her first scan? 13 follies is great! Does she have PCOS?
    Yep first scan, it's day 9 today but she's doing nightly injections so it's a bit different to my cycles with timing. Don't think she has pcos but she is on a pretty low dose 150 so maybe

    Just got back from the Doctors. So....high temp (37.9), urine test showed no blood in urine (as opposed to last night's test), and extreme tiredness put down to a combination of side effect from new BP meds (have to stop them and try a new one) and the fact that clearly there is an infection *somewhere* - we're just not sure where. Told to rest. Ah-ha, right. Lets see how that goes, lol.

    Onto more important matters - the biscuits! Yes, I made them. Yes, they are jam drop biscuits, and yes, you can have the recipe. Here 'tis

    250g stick of butter at room temperature
    125g soft icing sugar mixture
    1 teaspoon vanilla essence
    300g plain flour
    70g custard powder
    2 tablespoons of milk
    Jam of your choice
    1/4 cup SR Flour for kneading.

    Use an electric mixer to beat butter and icing sugar until pale and creamy. Add vanilla essence and beat until combined. Add custard powder and milk and beat again. Add the PLAIN FLOUR and use a spatula or spoon to bring together.

    Sprinkle your bench liberally - don't be skimpy! - with the SELF RAISING FLOUR. Tip mixture onto it and bring it together with your hands. You may need to sprinkly extra SR flour on top as it is a VERY sticky mix. Give it a light knead by hand until it is soft but not 'wet'. Wrap in glad wrap and chill for 1/2 hour.

    Roll into 36 balls and place on 3 baking sheets. Press a small hole in the top of each ball and fill carefully with jam.

    Bake at 170 degrees for about 20 minutes until golden. Watch 'em as they can burn easily! Cool, then store in an airtight container.

    @ange1111 Dont ever apologise. Its not all rainbows and baby dust storms on this thread. No one really knows we are doing IVF so this is my only outlet. Im sure alot of others are in the same canoe up poo creek. And you cant rant to DH as he is next to you in the canoe. Don't be hard on yourself. Tomorrow is a new day and maybe the poo river wont be as rough tomorrow.

    Our journey is parallel to Leo in The Revenant I reckon. There is loss, we feel lonely, we are starving for a baby, we are scarred by our fight for survival, we are left behind by others, and this thread is like the gutted horse we take refuge in to keep warm and survive... I reckon there is as much blood in my IVF journey as there was in that movie too. We will do what it takes to get to our end goal..

    IVF has clearly sent me mad!

    Thanks @Blossom74 for the recipe will definitely try them out. Hope they sort out what's going on with you very soon x
    @ange1111 this process does wear anyone down. it's mentally, emotionally and physically exhausting...& you've just done 3 back to back cycles so you're going to be pretty run down I imagine.

    I don't have any advice to help you get out of this rut (coz I'm in it too)!!!, But going to a psychologist is a good idea.
    I don't know if it's just me but I find this whole ivf journey very consuming - it's all I think about from when I wake up in the morning till when I go to bed. For me I'm going to plan a little getaway or holiday to bring some fun back!!
