Hi ladies just wanted to pop in & let u know I hav just received confirmation that they hav cancelled my cycle. We were doin an FET but they think I may hav ovulated very early in my cycle which is very unusual for me as I've always had very irregular & long cycles (but then again my body never does anything "normal") so they didn't want to waste a good blastie. So unless by a miracle I've conceived naturally we will be waiting until AF arrives or we may even hang out & wait til next year as it's about to become pretty busy around here, it may even be that long before I get AF as I never know when shes gonna show up original.gif
I'm a lil disappointed as it would hav been the exact same timing we had when we conceived DD 3 years ago...

Anyways how is everyone else doin?
Continuing sticky vibes for u glitterz. How far along are u? When r u havin ur first scan?

Sorry to hear your cycle has been cancelled kelwantsababy. What a bummer! Here's hoping you have a natural miracle.

Not much to report here. Another BT and US Friday. Endometrium is perfect. I don't think there was a lead follicle yet, or that it needed a bit more time. Looking like it might be a Monday transfer.... As long as it is a daycare day. Would prefer not to have to do 6 hours driving with DS if it can be avoided!

Hi mums,

Super quiet in here! How is everyone?

I'm all lined up for my transfer tomorrow. At 1pm as hoped so DS will be going into daycare instead of being dragged to Canberra. Yay!!!

Not the perfect lead up. Got a spew bug and spent all day yesterday yacking. Much better today, just tired and getting hungry. Trying to rest and rehydrate.

I'm working from home rather than celebrating Melbourne Cup though. For the best as beng the organiser it's a fun but stressful day and I don't need it. I told the girls to steal a bottle of the nice pink bubbles I ordered so we can have some when I get back to work. Didn't really think too hard about that statement did I???? LOL. With any luck I will be able to share that bottle with them in 9 months....

Hi Ladies, not sure if this is the right spot for me original.gif. Started my first cycle of IVF recently at fertility first.  38 and single, have a 4yr old DD from a previous relationship and didn't want to wait for MR Right for the second, time not being on my side....

Started on Syneral about a week ago and going in for a scan and BT tomorrow and to find out when I start the injections.  

CIRW good luck with transfer tomorrow, hope it's a quick TWW

Posted 06 November 2012 - 05:49 PM

Hi Cuddlesnkisses. You are in the right spot. Welcome! Good on you for going it alone. That's awesome. We have a friend who will start IVF next year as she is (in fertility terms) getting on and hasn't found The One. I hope your DD gets a sibling very soon.

Thanks for your wishes. I hope it's short too. I'm a bit hopeless in the TWW!

Posted 06 November 2012 - 08:49 PM

Good Luck tomorrow cirw. My transfer is tomorrow as well eeekkk!!! Good luck I will be thinking of you,

Welcome Cuddlesnkisses and good luck with your scan and blood test also

Hi everyone else hope your all doing well

#8 clrw

Posted 07 November 2012 - 08:07 AM

Hi Balla,

We can TWW together! What are you transferring and when will you test? I'm transferring a Blastocyst. My clinic tests early so 12 and 14 nov I think.

#9 ★balla

Posted 07 November 2012 - 11:45 AM

Hi cirw

All went well today I actually just looked at the clock and thought of you original.gif

Im sick of waiting already lol its going to be a long 11 days my test is on the 17th!

TBH Im not 100% but 8 cell Blastocyst sounds familiar! Was by myself today so didn't really take it all in. I got a photo for hubby though hopefully one day we can show a bubba its first pic.

#10 clrw

Posted 07 November 2012 - 02:48 PM

Thanks for thinking of me Balla.

Our first embie wasn't looking good so they thawed a second for transfer. If the original one picks up this afternoon they said they would refreeze but it's probably gone.

Best of luck waiting til the 17th! It's so hard!

#11 halby

Posted 07 November 2012 - 09:57 PM

hay ladies congrats on your transfers. Sending you sticky vibes. Balla are you going to join the Nov 2ww?

Cuddlenkisses dont blame you for not waiting for mr right, us women need to be empowered to take control of our lives and we cant wait around for men........Fingers crossed for a successful cycle.

Kel sorry that they have cancelled your cycle, but I agree with the logic of not wasting nice embryos if it is not perfect. I am one of those people that ovulate early so I always start bloods on cd7-8. This current fet though it meant I was a pin cushion for a week as I ovulated day 13 so go figure, you never can tell.

I havent been in here much I do browse though. I have 2 more days to go in the 2ww, although I think I will poas tomorrow so will see. I went into my fet really confident with 2 beaut looking 8 cell embryos, but this 2ww really sucks the life out of you. It is so hard to remain positive, but I am trying.

Good Luck girls

Hi Halby,

Yeah I have joined just been quite but I am in there original.gif

Have you POAS yet, I think I will be too chicken.

Fingers crossed for you

#13 living_bravely

Posted 14 November 2012 - 08:15 PM

Hi everyone. I was wondering if I might be able to join your group. I have a 17 month old daughter but now TTC #2, fell pregnant first go in Feb but MC at 8 weeks and have now been diagnosed with LOR with AMH of less than 1 and FSH of 9.  I will be starting IVF in the new year, but I'm hoping you don't mind if I hang out here until my IVF.  Even though I am praying for a natural miracle for christmas.  I am so very very new at all of this and never expected to have a problem and I'm feeling really nervous and quite disheartened at my extremely low AMH since I am only 31.

#14 halby

Posted 14 November 2012 - 08:43 PM

Living bravely welcome, although I am sorry to see that you have to be here. Its always such a lot to take in. Have you popped into the low ovarian reserve buddy group to introduce yourself there also. They are a great bunch of ladies and are well informed with LOR, and may also be able to hopefully ease some of those nerves. There is some amazing success stories amongst them which I know will lift your spirits. Also try and keep your chin up, the fact that you conceived while although you sadly miscarried, but you did get implantation so you are on the right track. I know that doesnt help much but hang in there

Hello to everyone else.

afm just waiting to start bloods for my fet. 1st bloods for tracking on Friday and then fingers crossed for the successful thaw and 2ww

#15 living_bravely

Posted 15 November 2012 - 05:56 AM

Haley that actually helps a lot!  I keep trying to remind myself of that while we have our last 2 natural cycles.  We just thought we would prefer to start in the new year just so we have time to let it sink in and also continue with TCM so at least we have good chance with IVF. I have introduced myself in the other group as well.

#16 clrw

Posted 15 November 2012 - 02:59 PM

Welcome living_bravely. The LOR ladies will be a huge wealth of info for you!

Just wanting to say thanks for the support Mums. It was a BFN for me this round. I've passed a message along to my FS's nurses that I'm happy with a Down reg plan rather than relying on my one frostie for a FET next. Given our travel from Sydney to Canberra for a transfer it feels too much of a risk of a cancelled cycle due to the embryo not surviving the flaw. I'll see if he agrees or not.

Either way I'm sure it will be after the New Year before we start up again. I would like to try to stay away from EB and have a proper break from AC & IVF - no guarentees, but I will try.

Best of luck and lots of BFPs to you all!

#17 Cuddlesnkisses

Posted 15 November 2012 - 07:13 PM

Hi Ladies, started my Gonal F injections a few days ago and tonights one stung like a bee sad.gif I'm on 450ui? Which seems like a lot.  The FS must have looked at my ovaries and thought " these buggers are gonna need a lot of help" lol BT Monday and scan next Wednesday.  How many eggs should I expect?

Clrw,  sorry for your BFN.


#18 tryingforanother

Posted 15 November 2012 - 09:10 PM

Hi everyone, hoping you don't mind me joining in! I have a 2 1/2 year DS and will be starting first round of IVF next year in March.

It's such a lot to take in, all the technology to learn about and decisions to be made.  It took us 9 months to conceive DS naturally, but an unrelated surgery has since caused major damage to both tubes and we now cannot have any further kids naturally.  IVF it is then!

In NZ, there is a 3 year waiting period before becoming elligible for publicly funded IVF treatment, and then a wait list of 12 - 18 months!  So we are having to go private as I can't wait that long.  Will stay on the public list anyway, as obviously there are no guarantees of it working the first time round?


Anyone else here have blocked tubes as a factor for needing IVF?


Good luck to those of you who are currently having treatments! I am not looking forward to that 2WW, any advice for passing the time?

#19 aidensmum

Posted 18 November 2012 - 08:37 AM

Been lurking for while and thought I'd join a group this time round. On day 4 of a stim cycle. Feeling feral, PMS symptoms. Think it must be the synarel. DH can't do a thing right and im hiding from my family as I'm being a total b**ch.
We have two children that are 9 & 10. Been trying for another thru IVF for 18 months. Had been trying to decide if we want to transfer one or two embryos This cycle but had a moment of clarity when I saw a young mum with screaming twins at the shopping centre. You could tell she was having to go home and abandon whatever she intended to do. We are now hoping for one little baby to complete our family and fingers crossed there won't be too many moments when we wonder what the heck were we thinking going back for another after 10 years.

#20 Cuddlesnkisses

Posted 21 November 2012 - 10:46 AM

Halby how did you go with the thaw and transfer?

Tryingforanother no blocked tubes here. What does it cost in NZ? My out of pocket will be around 5k, that's with donor sperm.

Aidensmum Im on syranel as well, but and your going to hate me, I feel like a million bucks on it. Taste horrid but no side effects. Very lucky because from what I've read the side effects are bad, similar to menopause.  Hopefully once you start the injections it all settles down.  I haven't had any issue with the injections either.

Had my first scan today and so far 8 follicles, another scan next Monday so I'm hoping the smaller follies ramp up.  Might have to start Luveris as my LH is borderline. Looking at epu mid to late next week, so FX another week on injections increases my number.  I know the whole quality vs quantity but I just want as many as possible lol.


#21 aidensmum

Posted 21 November 2012 - 06:39 PM

Cuddlesnkisses you were right. Feel human again. About day 6 of FSH I came good. On a bit of a high actually. If that's what I'm going to be like after menopause I'm heading for divorce or jail for stabbing my husband with the nearest sharp object. Ovaries are aching nicely. P/U isn't for another week so I'm happy to be feeling ache this early.

#22 Cuddlesnkisses

Posted 21 November 2012 - 06:45 PM

I'm starting to get a bit achy too, looks like we will be in the TWW together.  Had my LH levels checked and they have dropped so started Luveris tonight.  Makes me feel like a junky because it's a "proper" syringe and needs mixing.

I actually don't mind the injections, I'm a control freak so it makes me feel like I'm in control of whats happening.  

What area/ clinic are you going to?

#23 tryingforanother

Posted 21 November 2012 - 07:39 PM

Wow, Cuddlesnkisses, $5K is so cheap compared to NZ, but still a lot of money aye!  We are looking at $11 - $13,000 for a round of private IVF (though some people can access publicly funded IVF for two rounds for free).


I'd heard it was a lot cheaper in Australia!  Good luck with your EPU :-)

#24 Cuddlesnkisses

Posted 21 November 2012 - 08:05 PM

A lot of ours is subsidized by either Medicare or private health insurance.  $11-13k is a lot, but hopefully it works first time and then it's worth every cent and more.


#25 aidensmum

Posted 21 November 2012 - 08:34 PM

Im in QLD.  Waiting for a scan on Friday.  Think my costs are about $4500 for stim cycle and $1650 for a FET.  We had gone back to IVF thinking we would be ok investing $10K and then stop.  We hit $10K in Sept but have decided to keep going until we have success.  Don't want to look back with regret and wish we had spent the money.
