Hi ladies

Milano, sorry AF has arrived.  I hope you enjoyed that glass of wine (or two?).  What is your plan next?

Jane - wishing you lots of luck with your EPU today.  I hope the flare is the right cycle for you.  I"m still waiting for AF to start so that I can start my next cycle.  I've had cycles all over the place in the last 4 months (32, 25, 22 days).  I'm up to 28 days today and think it's on it's way ... almost normal!

Krunchie - hope you have lots of things to take your mind off POAS.

Have a good Monday everyone.

Thanks for the support ladies. I'm not sure what our next step will be. We do have one frostie but we've only ever had one before and that didn't survive the thaw so I'm conscious of that happening again.

Will speak to FS and see what he recommends. Might have a month off and then try again November. I'm getting to the point where it seems like it's never going to work so I'm feeling pretty down about it all.

Best wishes to you all, I'll be reading for your news.

ok, here is a very much TMI question but i hope you dont mind me asking!!!

this morning when I was in the shower i was cleaning out the excess crinone gel with my finger (gross enough!) and noticed 9as i have over a few days now) that my mucus is increasing. ok, all fine there but i also noticed that my vaginal canal seemed to be more open than usual, wider, not as tight! I knwo that sounds weird and prob TMI but just wondered if anyone else experienced anything like this?!

thanks! didnt know who else to ask! DH is away otherwise i would ask him and i would be mortified saying this out loud to a nurse!!

gotta love the internet for this type of thing!!

Krunchie - not sure if this helps but with each of my pg my mucos did increase, so could be a positive sign?!  When is your blood test again?

Magenta - did you test?

Milano - you have been through so much, I can understand you wanting to take a month off before trying again, I think you are a very brave and strong person  bbighug.gif   I hope your frosties thaws ok and is the one for you.

Gordo's Girl - hope af is just around the corner for you so you can start cycling again.

Hi to anyone I have missed.

Well epu went well in that we got 3 egss (only had 3 follies so wasn't expecting any more than that).  Went home full of hope then got the call at 3.30.....they were all immature  cry1.gif   I'm so shattered and heartbroken at the moment.  You think you prepare for the worst but it still hurts so much.  I don't think I can go through anymore so this is it for dh and me  sad.gif  I want to wish you all the very, very best of luck on your journeys and I hope with all my might that you all get that beautiful bfp very soon  hheart.gif

Hi Krunchie, I also did the lovely Crinone cleanout (blurgh!) on the last 2 cycles but didn't notice any changes but then again I did it as quickly as possible and wasn't taking much notice!!!  Only one more sleep until your BT!  Can't wait to hear how you go!

Totally understand needing to think about and discuss what to do next Milano. We were in the same boat on the first cycle (1 transferred which ended in a chem and 1 frozen) and ended up deciding to do another stim cycle to try to get a few more backups.  I'm sure you'll come up with a plan that's right for you and DH.  Take care, thinking of you. hhugs.gif

Jane, I'm so sorry that's so disappointing for you.  I wish there was something I could say to make it better but there just isn't.  Take care and make sure you treat yourself.  We changed to Elonva protocol (long acting antagonist) this cycle and had better response rates.  Perhaps it's worth asking your FS if they can change your protocol to something different or worth seeing another FS?

AFM, POAS yesterday and today and nothing to report.  Still only 6DP5DT so who knows?!?!  DH and I did our tax return yesterday and got a refund which was a relief! (didn't really need any extra bills on top of the IVF ones).

Good luck everyone!

Jane, just wanted to say I'm so sorry.  sad.gif  I know how you must be feeling and it sux. Big hugs to you and I hope you have something nice planned for yourself, massage, hair cut, shopping, dinner out with DH.

Krunchie, good luck for tomorrow! I'll be stalking.

#12 Krunchie29

Posted 17 October 2012 - 11:59 AM

blood taken now just waiting to that phone call!

further to my TMI question before, I think now that its not that its wider, more that its smoother if that makes sense??

Jane - so sorryxxx. Hope you took Milano up on her advice and got a massage!

#13 Gordo's Girl

Posted 17 October 2012 - 12:40 PM

Oh Jane, sending you big hugs.  Really sorry you didn't get anything to transfer.  It sucks doesn't it?  What size were the follies on your last scan?   Take some time out and see how you feel in a couple of weeks.  It's such a rollercoaster - physically, emotionally and financially, and we all have to be prepared to know when to stop.  I find it a bit of an addiction though, and I know this is my last go coming up, but I'm pretty sure I'll be saying "just one more, just one more" but DP will put his foot down.   Thinking of you xx

Krunchie ... can't wait to hear how you get on.  I have everything crossed you get some happy news.

Magenta - hope you're hanging in there ok.  You've just reminded me we haven't done our tax returns yet.

Day 1 for me today - finally (after a 25, then 22 day cycle, I've now had a 30 day one).  I was kind of hoping that some miracle had happened, but no such luck!

Hi to everyone else.

Magenta, how are you going? Good luck with your blood test tomorrow. I've got everything crossed x

We have decided to use our one and only frostie next month so I'll be back in November.

Posted 19 October 2012 - 04:08 PM

Hi fellow LORer'ers!

Well, the good news is that the blood test today came back positive.  HCG is 100 (9 days past 5 day transfer).  Second blood test on Monday to see if it's rising.  As I mentioned in Oct2WW DH and I are very happy but trying to remain calm.  As we all know there's such a long way to go.  So far, Lucky is living up to his name so we're just going to try to go with the flow!

Good on you for getting back into it Milano.  I'm sure you and DH have made the decision that's right for you.  I am so hoping it will be your lucky month!

Any news Krunchie?

Hi to everyone else and thanks so much for all the support and advice!  Will let you know how Monday goes.

Thanks Milano, I really appreciate it.  It's been 5 years of trying so we're hoping this is the one!

Hello Everyone,

Milano - so sorry your cycle didn't result in a BFP. Good to see you have a plan. I found that I coped best when I knew when we would next be cycling. Fingers crossed that a frozen cycle works for you!

Jane23 - I hope that once some time has passed you might reconsider another round of IVF. IVF just blows doesn't it. Such a rollercoaster with no guarantees. Lots of things dor you and DH to consider. If you do decide to keep going I hope you'll come back to this lovely group again. Big hugs.

GG - have you started FSH injections yet? When do you think you'll have your EPU?

Magenta - WOW! So exciting. Let us know how your HCG Levels are rising on Monday!

Krunchie29 - c'mon come and let us know your result! I know you've posted elsewhere but haven't posted here to tell us!

AFM - Well, we got the go ahead from FS to use the Pill to time EPU so that's exciting. EPU about 6/7 December. I've started the Pill 3 days ago and will stop about 25 November. It's game on! Exciting but daunting too! I've started work. It's going OK. Last week I worked 5 days for the first time in over a year. It nearly killed me! I have told them I am available until the end of November so they have a finish date. There maybe another project starting next year which would be fantastic. I'm also on a health
kick for the next 6 weeks so hopefully will lose 5 kgs which will help with conception.

Not sure if you guys have followed fefe76 journey. The link is here. http://www.essentialbaby.com.au/forums/ind...=1028016&hl

Look after yourselves and I'll be checking for news next week!

Thought I had!! Blood was positive but only 42 which sounds very low and hpts aren't getting darker sad.gif

Was also getting cramps and weird pains and a teeny tiny bit of blood type stuff.

But got second blood test tomorrow so trying not to stress till I get results.

All normal symptoms I know but it's scary when you've lost one already as ectopic

Second blood test not good. Levels went from 42 to 5 so assume chemical pregnancy. Just waiting for period to start

#23 Magenta_

Posted 21 October 2012 - 05:31 PM

Oh no Krunchie!!!

I'm so sorry  sad.gif   I had that happen first cycle and it sucks so much to get your hopes up just to have them dashed.  mad.gif   Are you ok?

I hope to see you in here again soon with good news in the near future.  Big hugs.  hhugs.gif

Take care,

Krunchie, I'm so sorry. Hope you are ok. Thinking of you.

Magneta, Good luck for today's BT, I hope your levels have risen nicely!

Causeway, That's great newsre: the timing, it has worked out well so hoping this is your time.

Posted 22 October 2012 - 11:39 AM

Magenta - congrats sweet; I hope your blood test today shows the levels rising nicely for you  original.gif

Krunchie - I'm so sorry you are going through this, it's so heartbreaking and disappointing  sad.gif

Thank you for all your support and kind words.  I'm feeling better each day and have come to accept that IVF isn't going to be the answer we were hoping for.  We are just going to start living life again forget about actively ttc and if we have a "natural" miracle along the way (though I doubt it, I will be turning 41 tomorrow) then so be it. wink.gif   Dh and I are very blessed by what we have and I'm looking forward to just enjoying life again.  Goodluck to you all, I hope you all have your dreams come true.
