Hi everyone!

Rose - How are you keeping in this 2ww?  I'm keeping my fingers crossed for both of us.  It's only 8DPO and I'm already losing hope.  I feel no symptoms which usually means no BFP...I so wish I'm wrong!

Spring - How did your FS appointment go today?  Did you get the answers you were looking for?  If so, do share 'cause I'm very interested in a possible plan of attack should my current FET not work.

CC - thanks for bringing up your query regarding Clexane in the general section...perhaps this is something I too should look into when none of my past attempts resulted in the slightest hint of implantation.

Kimbar - Enjoy your break and hope the new clinic is good for you and that the transfer of records doesn't cause you too much grief.

Hello to Carita, Spock, Meggie, Still and Moi Mwah.

AFM The practice transfer certainly helped a lot.  My FS took the time to do a proper internal scan, noting the exact curves and length of my cervix, then decided on a small catheter called the "TomCat" for insertion.  It was done in less than a minute when he gave it a go!  Previously all transfers took at least 20 minutes if not more.  So, for the real transfer everything went very smoothly and pain free!

Not sure if this is going to help the end result though.  I don't feel any symptoms other than slight cramps, which usually doesn't end well.  sad.gif   I can't help but feel quite depressed at the moment.

kim - i hope the new clinic is a breath of fresh air..i felt like mine was when i changed..a renewed hope..
