That sounds terrible Mish. Hopefully it's a sign of something good? when is your BT? Our embies were actually frozen on day 1. Weird.... We call tomorrow to see if any of the other 6 made it over the weekend.
Hi everyone else!
Posted 15 October 2012 - 09:28 AM
Well Bwok, like you we had 2 more eggs and have now survived to day 3. If they make it to blasts then they'll be frozen, too. Hang in there little guys!
It's gone very quiet in here... Hope you are all ok

Thanks Dadora - I pulled a sickie at work today, just feeling generally crap, sinus and the rest. I am just tired. My blood test is Friday but I should be due on Wednesday. I am trying not to freak myself out too much with symptoms. Congrats on the numbers, I pray they make it for you.

I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling well Mish. glad you pulled a sickie Rest up. You are one day closer!
Posted 16 October 2012 - 09:54 AM
Dadora - how are you eggs going?
MishJ - How are you feeling?
AFM - feels like I'm walking on egg shells emotionally. All the symtpoms I felt last week have all but disappeared, so I don't think it has worked. My BT is Saturday - so I'll know for sure. I'm glad I have 2 weeks off work next week and won't get the call at work.

Hi Bwok - still hanging in there, have had some symptoms like AF is coming but then the pains go away, haven't had any spotting yet, AF is due tomorrow which is Day 14 after O, 12dpt. I have had some nausea and also very emotional and tired. So who knows, it could all be AF.
Dadora - how is it going?
AFM: Thought that I would elaborate on what happened with the clairvoyant last night, we walked in and she pulled out all the cards and said, you have a strong relationship but something is missing and it is hurting you both, at this stage I didn’t say a word and she didn’t ask any questions, she turned the next card over and said its children, she then wrote on a piece of paper and had the number 1 in a box and then the number 2 in a circle. She said the one was my husband’s son and that we didn’t get to see him very often and then she flipped over cards and said to me, its medical intervention isn’t it, I then explained to her that we were doing IVF and she said that she could see it. She said that she could see 2 babies possibility twins, I explained to her that I was supposed to have a double embryo transfer this one but chickened out at the last minute and only one was transferred. She said that this cycle has been very different to the other one and that I was thinking different this time around and ignoring everything like it didn’t exist, which is what I have been doing. She said that she can see babies for us and to not give up, they are coming really soon, either between September to September. But I know not to lead my life by then. Its a little fun.

Mish*J hope you are feeling better. Hope the clairvoyant is right and October is well between the Septembers and you get good news SOON! I used to love going to the clairvoyant, it was a type of therapy - when times were rough or stressful it was what it took to remind me that there would be a future and there would be great moments! I live in Asia at the moment, and all the fortune tellers are into telling you about "money, money, money:" in the future. Hope AF stays well away for you. The nausea is a good sign.
I am taking my oestrogen tablets like a good girl - 4 a day- dont feel anything except an overthinking EVERYTHING- will see the doctor on Friday to see what is happening and hopefully have my transfer next week. Work is asking me to travel and i am thinking of every excuse not to - i could not bear missing another month
Hope everyone else is ok and good news is plastered all over this group next time i visit.
Posted 17 October 2012 - 08:34 AM
Lol Lottie, I have to laugh at the Money, Money, Money......
AFM: Oh my God, this is killing me, BT is Friday and I am scared sh*tless to say the least. I hate going to the toilet. I have mild cramping but nothing too bad and my boobs are killing me but I don't want to read into anything.....arrrggghhhhhh
Posted 17 October 2012 - 09:00 AM
Mish - all of my family and friends know about my journey and I'm taking them step by step through it so they can at least 'try' to understand what it's like - and that it's not a walk in the park like they think.
The best way I could describe it to them was ...
It's like walking on a tight rope! You don't want to look up incase you lose your balance, but you don't don't want to look down either because you can see how big the fall is and it makes you dizzy. So you look straight ahead... but then the rope starts to wobble... *sigh*
Oh and if another person says to me 'stay positive' - I may just bop them on the nose!

Posted 17 October 2012 - 10:39 AM
Bwok - that is a great way to look at it. I think what was hard for us too, was that we had other family members fall PG the first IVF try and everyone just expected for us to do the same and when we didn't they werer like, so what's wrong. Anyway, they understand now.
Posted 17 October 2012 - 04:57 PM
It seems that everyone is in the 2ww! I wish you all the very best and hope your BTs come quickly
Mish that clairvoyant seemed to be very good! It's freaky that they can know stuff about you without even talking to you! Sounds like very good news
AFM I'm feeling really crummy today. Even mild OHSS is a real bummer. I'm still having ovarian pain that is worse when I sit and major bloating Plus I'm feeling rather emotional. I nearly lost it at my last client today who was saying the most horrible condescending comments to me. Grrrr luckily I held it in! Good news though that both of our embies made to day 5 and one was suitable for freezing. Yay! So now we have 4 frosties at different stages and will just wait until AF to appear to start a FET. What a process!!
Posted 17 October 2012 - 07:24 PM
Dadora - hope you start to feel better soon. I started to come good about 5 days after. Rest up...
AFM - started bleeding today, took me by complete suprise and have had a few tears. Spoke to the clinic and they said to keep on using the pessaries and to call them if the bleeding gets heavier or brighter. If it's not one thing, it's another!
Posted 17 October 2012 - 09:07 PM
Has the bleeding settled or changed at all? ...not to be too personal... Hang in there, Hun, it is such a roller coaster isn't it My fingers are crossed for you.
Posted 17 October 2012 - 10:06 PM
It's started to ease off, but I have cramping, and started feeling dizzy and sick.
Posted 18 October 2012 - 08:17 AM
Me too Bwok - sorry to hear that.
Hi Everyone - unfortuntely I have started spotting, so I am out, BT will be just a formality. Thanks for your support.
Posted 18 October 2012 - 08:42 AM
AFM: the bleeding started again this morning, sorry TMI - it's brown blood. I'm thinking I'm out this month - not too sure what happened as I've never had a problem with my LP (with or without drugs)
Posted 18 October 2012 - 09:42 AM
Mine is brown blood too but I am Day 15 with BT tomorrow, so I guess my AF is coming.
Posted 18 October 2012 - 12:00 PM
Girls, not to blow sunshine where it is not required but my first IVF was a success and I had brown spotting just before my test and thought it was all over. my almost 2 year old little lady is proof otherwise. Not sure if you are on progesterone. I was on Crinone suppositories and they thought it may have irritated my cervix and caused the bleeding... so there may be other answers.
Also if symptoms come and go, then that is your body doing the right thing. Your body tries to overcome when all those hormones make it out of balance ... so, all in all, I hope and woudl love to be shown that i am right for you both Mish and Bwok.
That said, each of my FETs started with spotting, and i just knew it was over. So if you are in that position. I am so sorry. I know the heartache. Have you got plan B at the ready? I find that always helps. As does putting a bottle of wine in the fridge!
I am still taking the progynova/oestrogen tablets. Nothing really happening at all. Before i could feel it working, with certain symtoms, but nothing. I am having an US tomorrow for a lining check but its going to be early, just didnt want to ovulate over the weekend and miss another cycle. So will hopefully know by monday when i am having my transfer. Relief. So want to be in the 2WW, even though it makes me crazy!
Thinking of everyone and really hoping there is some great news when i pop by next.
Posted 18 October 2012 - 06:57 PM
Bleeding is getting heavier and a dark red now - BT is tomorrow (was orginally saturday) but it will only be to confirm what I already know.
Posted 18 October 2012 - 07:07 PM
I'm sorry to hear that Bwok and Mish. I've heard so many ladies have bleeding and still get their BFP, just like Lottie. I hope that's the case with both of you!! If not, please look after yourselves and have a glass of wine or something else that makes you feel good. I'm thinking of you both
Posted 18 October 2012 - 07:54 PM
I am in the middle of my first IVF/ICSI cycle. I had EPU on Tuesday. 16 eggs were collected, 15 were mature, and 14 fertilised. We are due for ET on Sunday.
My question to you all is...how sore were you after EPU? I have had some tenderness in my midsection which I assume is my ovaries. It got better yesterday (day after EPU) but I am still quite tender today, and I think I was at my most sore this afternoon. How do you know when it is just expected soreness or something more serious like OHSS?
Am probably going to ph my nurse in the morning if I am still sore but looking for some reassuring words from those who have been through all of this!

Kiwi-girl. Great results on all those embies.
I was a bit tender after EPU and had similar numbers of eggs removed. I had cramping and knew exactly where my Ovs where positioned. I would call. They do always say to guzzle water to avoid OHSS.
Hope you are ok.
Bwok. Am sorry. Hope it's not what you think.
Posted 19 October 2012 - 08:34 AM
Bwok - I am sorry and know exactly how you feel.
Well AF came in full force this mroning, so the BT was just a formality. I can't stop crying and hate what this journey has done to me. I am half the person I used to be and don't know if I can go on with it.
Good luck to all you beautiful ladies and I wish you the very best of everything for this cycle.
Posted 19 October 2012 - 09:12 AM
Oh Mish I'm so sorry honey! xox
Kiwigirl - I had alot of pain after EPU, it was in the bottom section of my stomach. With the bloating I got afterwards (I have PCOS) it was above the belly button and below the ribs. I could barely button my workshirt up. It was about 5 days before I started to feel better. I was told to drink lots and lots of water, have high protein every 2 to 3 hours. I was really uncomfortable and sore.
AFM - I'm about to head off and have my BT.
