clm- as Jess said we have unexplained secondary infertility which is very frustrating as there is no obvious reason why we arent falling pregnant! We tried naturally for 6 months then saw the FS for blood tests and scans. All came back fine so we went on trying for about another 10 montnhs then started IVF. And here we are over 2 years later
I'm not sure if your AF is within normal range. It does sound like there could be hormonal issues. I'd probably try naturopathy or acupuncture but with someone that specialises in fertility.
Jess yay for AF!! Hopefully it is proper AF. So you will be getting transfer in about 2 weeks? Yay!
I can not remember what else I read in the previous thread..sorry
Saw the FS yesterday and we are set to start the Frozen transfer when AF turns up. Same as Jess basically. AF is due next Wed or Thursday.
FS said my last IVf was text book perfect with a top embryo, and it really should have worked blah blah blah...yes thanks but it's frustrating not knowing why a perfect cycle still didn't work
Jess interestingly we talked about medicated Vs unmedicated FETS and he said he had been at a recent meeting where a US FS was saying they were starting to see reasons to do every transfer froze, natural no drugs cycle. So basically what you have done- have teh egg pick up then freeze everything and then only do FETS, natural cycles. He believed our bodies were betetr off with no drugs ( providing that all natural hormone levels were OK). So odds of FETS are almost as good as fresh transfers. So all natural fo rme too, which will be easier to deal with. I will be going in for blood tests every few days from around CD 7 he thought. Guess yours will be the same.
Also if we don;t get a BFP from that cycle he will try to push me up onhis list for a laparoscopy, which might then happen in May. It's meant to improve chances of natural conception and may even find a reason for the infertility. Now that would be good to know!
I'm going to apply for a new job! I've been in thsi one way too many years and something I've been waitingf or has come up. I have been putting things of for "bad timing", cant do it if UTD. I think I'm better of just getting on with life
Well do some work!

temping and opks definitely won't hurt
And it will give you more info to analyse which I know you love to do lol
Hope you don't keep the mystery virus too long and you don't turn into a monster haha. I doubt it would affect too much, especially with only a 1degree temp shift. But thinking positive its going to be a 2 day virus at most and then you will be fine anyway!mummamajeena
I have called the FS and told them its CD1 and the nurses will be calling me back soon to confirm start and blood dates! Still a bit nervous that they are going to say actually the last nurse got it wrong and you can't start yet.
I had heard a lot of clinics were not phasing out the fresh transfers from stim cycles too to get rid of excess hormones etc. I don't know really I can understand the theory that your better off without the drugs etc, I just want them to develop a 100% foolproof method lol and guarantee the BFPs!
Good on you applying for the job! We have to stop putting things off and just let things happen and work around them when and if we have to! I think its a fantastic idea, especially since you have been waiting for it to come up so fingers crossed you get it!
Hi everyone else!
Called the FS clinic and told them its CD1 and Im ready to start a FET cycle. Just waiting on the nurses to call me back and confirm and tell me what to do from here
Im hoping that they don't call me and tell me actually no its too hard to fit you in, or we have no consents for you so no you can't, or something else.
Posted 22 March 2012 - 12:23 PM
- Thanks for that, I thought it was the cervix making things a little uncomfortable!! Testing? hmm well if Saturday O then cycle will be 1 day shorter so go with the 30th when AF is due thanks. Oh and can you change my details - DH has somehow become a DP so can you make him a DH again! and he's now 34. Thanks
Woo hoo for AF
but trust her to play games with you for a bit. I'll be stalking for updates from the FS's office duck
- glad I didn't miss any news from you! And good idea with the temping and OPKing, more info the better if you're having tests done. Fingers crossed for you and hopefully everything comes back all fine. And boo to the virus
hope you start to feel better soon and like Jess said it's just a two day thing. Yep this cycle has flown by for me, can't believe I'm already 5DPO?!mumma
- great news re the FET so fingers crossed AF cooperates and arrives when she should. But how frustrating your FS saying it was a perfect cycle - doesn't help at all. Good for you for deciding to apply for that job. Totally agree that we shouldn't hold back from doing things for what if's so all the best with your application, I really hope you get it
Hi everyone else AFM
- nothing exciting - just feeling a bit down today. DH and I had another argument this morning about what else but money. People still owing and not paying and us disagreeing on the next step. Anyway I know it will sort itself out eventually but I'd rather it sooner than later given the ATO is about to get nasty with us. So frustrating to know you can pay all your bills if people just paid us.
Sorry, there's my whinge for the day. 5DPO here and absolutely no symptoms so far which is the complete opposite to last month! I think I was already getting sore BB's this time last cycle. Oh well, will find out next Friday one way or another.
Hope you're all having a great day
Posted 22 March 2012 - 12:51 PM
at work so doing a sneaky message... promise to do personals tonight.
ok, i need some advice... this sat is our mothers group joint 2nd birthday for our little ones, was looking forward to seeing everyone, until, i realised that i am the only one who hasn't had a second baby, or is not currently pregnant, now i am not sure if i really want to go as all the chat will be about the latest additions and additions to be. Am i really selfish for feeling this way, should i just bite the bullet and go and stop being so sensitive?? DF will be with me too, so it is not like i will be alone, i am happy for everyone, but just worried about my own emotions?
Also, now i am worried that i will feel guilty if i stop obsessing over TTC as it is what i really want, so if i don't think about it my mind might think that i don't want another one. What the hell is wrong with me lol. Need to destress somehow, was doing really well, up until now!
Posted 22 March 2012 - 01:05 PM
Hi Bex18, I just had to respond to your post as I'm in EXACTLY the same position with my mums group! There's 5 of us in total and 3 have already had their second bubs (eldest about 8-9 months) and the 4th is currently 34 weeks pregnant with twins. And then there's me!
I do find it hard going to mums group but I also love going because they are now some of my really close friends and I adore all of their children as they adore DS. Only last Friday I was holding one of their bubs and whilst a part of me wanted it to be my baby I was holding, the other part remembered that it will be me soon enough.
They were also very supportive when I had my m/c and I know they understand that things aren't always easy for me when I'm with them so they don't go on and on about babies all the time! But I think that's just us in general anyway. We like to use mums group for some adult conversation!!
Completely understand why you might not want to go but my advice - go. You'll have DF there with you. And most importantly you've got you're beautiful DS. I decided that I wasn't going to stop doing things or seeing people because I wasn't pregnant, you just have to keep living with the knowledge that it will happen when it's meant to happen.
Oh and I think you're body will still do it's job if you stop obsessing about TTC! Our minds like to play games with us but our bodies keep functioning! You'll be fine!
Posted 22 March 2012 - 02:12 PM
Arvo girls! Sorry i've been MIA - i've been a bit stressed about saving money and getting ready for our holiday and had fraudulant activity on my CC again and had to deal with that and just you know - life! haha ...
Personals are going to be hard to do now with the new thread having started - I hope you don't mind if I try and do them on the weekend when I have time to go back and read everyone's comments.
For now - i'll do a quick AFM:
Well as you know we are not trying - but that doesn't mean not DTD - haha ... anyway - pretty sure I O'd yesterday or maybe today ... which means i'm in the 2WW now but not really - you know what I mean. We go away in 5 weeks and i'm freaking out. I also had a job interview today and still applying for jobs. Even though I do the fashion work, write my kids books and have a marketing business I still need to find a job because we want to get a mortgage and for that I need a steady income. Isn't a bad thing, financially we'll be better off. Anyway, I really don't think I'll get this job - it's very senior and not in my field but it was nice to be asked for interview. I keep telling myself i'll get the job i'm meant to get. I've applied for a lot - had a lot of interviews etc. DP earns good money so that's ok - but I just had to shell out of $5k in bills - SO ANNOYING after saving all that money to then have to spend it... we had a few things like broken down cars, rego, rent, parking fines, speeding ticket, red light ticket (ok - i was naughty over the summer in my car!!!!). Anyway - it will be fine, but I really really want a job! ARRRRRGH ...
I still need to book accomodation in Paris and Barcelona - but doing that next week ... at the moment I am thinking we won't go to Ibiza, we'll just do Paris, Barcelona and Costa Brava ... that should be nice. DP told me he has something he thinks might blow my mind while we are away ... hmmmm ... i hope he means knock me up! hahaha

Quick update from me
FS nurse called and all is good!! YAY!!
First blood test on Saturday the 31st!
Posted 22 March 2012 - 02:34 PM
bex- it is hard. my DS is 4&1/2 now and everybody in the original Mother's group or friends who had their first at the same time as me have gone on to have their second and a few their 3rd!! SO they have had 2 more babies in the time I have been TTC no.2
But I love hanging out with other Mums and their kids and DS loves it too so it's all good. I do feel that pang of sadness when I find out one of them is UTD again, but I get over it. Just have to remind yourself that your time will come and meanwhile you have a beautiful little one already.
cheri- job hunting is the pits but it's just a matter of time. Something will come up. Trip is getting close Yay!!
andrea sorry you are feeling down. Money is usually the cause of our agruments also.
I think I'm 9 or 10DPO today. Bring on a BFP or AF
Posted 22 March 2012 - 04:31 PM
Oh my goodness a new thread already!Jess
! Far out, finally! I am thinking more and more about the "meant to be" thing (to make myself feel better mostly). So I was thinking maybe my baby (or your baby or whatever) can't come until a certain time so that everything falls into place so he can be in the Olympic swimming team or invent something awesome because he had a certain teacher at school, or he has to meet someone to influence them in some way...you all think I've gone crazy right? For me, I have one more cycle before DD is 2yrs 4 months (to get past being 3) and this cycle they find a cyst so they can't do IVF until that is gone, which finally delays me the last cycle. It's like you getting delayed and delayed and delayed, it's like no matter what you do, this baby isn't coming until it's ready. But let's hope that's bl00dy soon! I'm so excited you're getting your FET soon, cos of your age you have a really high chance of it working (I've been reading all my stats!). There is looking like a light at the end of the tunnel for you.Mummamajeena
FET for you too! How many frosties do you have? Sorry I have only been half keeping up with the last thread. Well if the last one was textbook, then this one should work because they were good eggs. I see so many people pg from FET online. Maybe you need an egg, sperm and a soul to meet all at the right time, and like I said, that baby ain't coming until it's ready. Bring on AF then!Andrea
5dpo you shouldn't be getting any symptoms anyway! Haha, that's the easy week hey, you can start looking for EPS around 8dpo I tell myself is reasonable. Good luck.Cheri
Hope your not trying thing works for you (I could never pull that one off myself!) and if not, you come back UTD from your trip. You'll have to exhaust your DD out in the city and then put her to sleep on the floor or something Bex
The story of my life atm. My friend that had a baby at the same time as me, is having a baby shower at the weekend. I felt terrible but I sent her a msg and told her what I have found out about my fertility and that I couldn't cope with a baby shower right now. She called me (she is one of those really really nice people that I wish I was more like) and said she totally understood because it took her 12 months to fall pg and she hated pg people. She talked to me for ages then called her friend who went through IVF and her friend said I could call her to talk about it. I feel much better for not lying about why I didn't want to go. Lots in my mother's group have second babies too, I guess you just have to decide whether to suck it up or just not put yourself in the situation. For me, I have a major problem and am probably going to have to do IVF so I am an emotional, unpredictable wreck so I decided not to go, I didn't want to be crying at a baby shower. If you tell the girls what you are going through you'll probably find that some of them have been through the same.
AFM - Well where was I up to? Just finishing AF so onto 13th cycle and officially "infertile". I'm not entirely happy with my clinic, she just keeps telling me either "I don't know" or "go read the IVF brochure". I want her to at least say, well we had a lady like you before and this is what we did etc. I have heard so many bad stories about my clinic to get paranoid so I have decided to get a second opinion from a guy who is considered the best fertility gut in Perth. Because he's so good, it takes 9 weeks to get in to see him though. But then I have this cyst that I have to get rid of anyway. My other clinic was going to let me do IVF May/June cycle IF my FSH was below 10 which is unlikely anyway, but if I see him then I'll miss that cycle and we are having people over from overseas and going away for 2 weeks in July so can't do any cycle that overlaps into July so that will put IVF at August/September if I go with the second clinic. I have been going to acupuncture and for some sick reason I quite like it, still going to chiro and going to get yoga organised. I've also started to cut things out of my diet and add in things and the not-Chinese, Chinese Dr is going to get me on some herbs. So hopefully I can get my FSH down by the time I get to the IVF time. IMAGINE having a baby and not having to think about this anymore! Whatever will I think about and google about and talk about? I won't know what to do with myself.
Posted 22 March 2012 - 08:03 PM
Sorry everyone, been MIA as travelling for work. Managed to DTD a few times before I travelled, so I guess I am now in the 2 week wait and maybe 5 DPO. No symptoms for me yet either. And yep, like Bec and andrea, surrounded by pregnancies and little hubs. In a MG of 6, one has had her 2nd, 2 more are pregnant, 2 of us have had m/cs and are ttc,and the final lady is only having one (she had a pretty torrid journey having that one). Plus really void friends, work mates, cousins - heaps pregnant. Bex - as much as it may hurt to hear all the discussion, I would go along if I was you - for your DS. Plus hopefully they'll be sensitive enough to discuss done other things too - like Revenge or Homeland, if the QLD election
Good luck to the ladies with the FET. Must admit I had to Dr Google that. I am learning so much from you ladies. First SMEP, now I know that there is a difference between fresh and frozen. Now I have to go and look up FSH. Jess - is the blood test you refer to a pregnancy hormone test? fingers crossed.
Bellefin - how did you find your acupuncturist and Chinese doctor? We've been ttc for 7 months now, so if no BFP this month, I am thinking I should look into some of this stuff.
Sorry for no more personals, having trouble going back on my phone.
Posted 22 March 2012 - 09:51 PM
Hello all! I'm new to this thread. I've got a beautiful 16 months old little girl, we started TTC in January, I was still breastfeeding then. Got pregnant in mid Feb, first cycle of TTCing, long story short, it turned out to be a blighted ovum, had D&C just over 3 weeks ago, now back at TTCing. I'm using maybe baby saliva tester, not sure how accurate it is, first time using it, I've bought some OPKs on eBay and will be using them in conjunction. I don't know whether what I had about a week ago was my period, we're just BD every second night anyway, so fingers crossed!

Quick update from me
FS nurse called and all is good!! YAY!!
First blood test on Saturday the 31st!
YAY!!! So exciting!! Good luck!!!!!AuroraSleeping:
Hon, what part of Paris did you stay in again! I think i'm changing my mind about where to get accomodation! My friends leant me an amazing book! Did I mention about going to Bofinger for my 40th? Did you go there? Are you in the 2WW? How are you? Oh and did I mention about my music degree? And what did you say the musical was you are doing? Sorry hon if you answered all these questions already - I have been slightly MIA and haven't gone back to the old thread! Mumma,
i know i know i'm so exciting!! I just realised this thread we are the same age - yay ... when is your big bday party? Are you younger than me - am I the matriarch of this thread! hahaha! My mothers group isn't too bad, one of the girls just had her 2nd, and my good friend had her 2nd about a year ago, then there is another girl and me and we are both TTC without success (yet!), there is also another who had a second quite quickly, but moved overseas and another who doesn't come along to our catchups - she has been TTC every since having DD, I think they have given up - which might be why she doesn't come anymore. I just try to keep my chin up and think 'it will happen when it's meant to happen'. So I think you and I have the same thinking there xMyTinyBean
, welcome to the thread, the girls in here are amazing so you'll love it!JuniorGrandR
, good job on DTD before travelling - hope that 2WW isn't too bad and you start getting some nice symptoms!BelleFinn,
I love your thinking about why baby needs to be born! Maybe our kids are going to change the world! I am getting excited about my holiday but also a bit nervous - i still have so much to organised! ARRRRGH! LOL!Andrea79,
how are things, you mentioned you and DP had a fight about money? Isn't it the pits. I manage all our money and give DP an allowance. This means we don't fight about money. Unless he comes to me and wants more and then there is usually a 'please explain' type conversation and usually - well at the moment - me saying 'no - we are saving for our hoilday'. hahaha ... Does anyone else manage the money in their house? I actually love it - but then i'm a business owner and control freak so it probably makes sense!!Bex18,
it is hard when everyone else in Mothers Group is UTD - and I think you don't have to go if you don't want to. Seriously, I used to avoid groups when I was feeling down... when you are strong again - you can go back. I used to also go when I didn't want to and was usually glad I did. Also, I reckon holding new born babies rubs the baby dust off - hahaha - so any chance for that is a good one!AFM:
Had my interview yesterday, don't think I'll get that - it is VERY senior and slightly out of my industry but I have the skills and experience, but it was nice to be interviewed. Have another one coming up ... one that I would love, relates to my degree, experience, I know the people at the place etc. sounds like the perfect fit but you never know - I won't believe I have a job until I am sitting at my desk on the first day thinking 'My Gosh - the last time I was sat like this I was UTD!" hahahahaha ... time to get DD dressed for Kindy! We made a family book for her to take - it's so cute - the kinda asked us to do it for Family week! Anyway Last night DP was reading it to her as a bedtime story and she said 'Daddy, this is soooo boring, read something else'. The cheek of her!!!!!! hahahahahaha ... have a great day everyone x
Posted 23 March 2012 - 10:02 AM
oops sorry no idea why I unmarried you and DH lol. Your married again now and his age has been edited! Sorry!
Grrr Money! All money does it cause problems its so annoying! Especially in your situation with people owing, and knowing you could pay all the bills if people would just pay you! That would drive me insane! I hate that sort of thing
Hope you and DH can find a way to agree on the next step and start getting some of that money back asap!bex18
about your mothers group party, I would go. This party is for your DS too right? I just think it would be a shame to miss out on the party that is for him too. In my mind, Im not just going to stay shut in the house where there are no pregnant people or babies forever just because I don't have my own yet. There are probably mothers in your mothers group that are jealous of you for not being pregnant and uncomfortable, and for getting a better nights sleep without newborn feeds. Thats just my opinion though and obviously if its really going to upset you to go then its probably not worthwhile going mummamajeena
fingers crossed for no AF and a BFP!!Bellefin
I like your theory about the timing and the delays
Its nice to think there would be an actual reason for all the frustration! Did you make an appointment for the second clinic? It doesn't hurt to get a second opinion, and you could always get the second opinion during a cycle with the first clinic I think. You have a lot going on there with the herbs, acupuncture, chiro, yoga! Maybe if you waited for the second clinic it will give that all a bit of time to settle in? I don't know really lol. Im hoping for a surprise BFP for you before then anyway JuniorGandR
the blood test Im talking about is for the frozen cycle
They do blood tests and scans to determine when ovulation happens, then 5 days after ovulation happens they put my 5 day old embryos into the uterus and then just hope for the best. So the blood tests will be just checking hormone levels for a while.
FSH is follicle stimulating hormone, its what stimulates your ovaries to produce a follicle, which is where an egg is released from
Will put you down for testing on the 31st. Good luck!Mytinybean
Welcome to TTC#2! I will add you to our group list, it is kept on page one of the thread and updated regularly with testing dates etc
BDing every second night will cover all your bases so its definitely the safest plan.
Hope your stay here is a short one and you can move out asap with a new shiny BFP!CheriDeMomie
you never know they may offer you the job yet! If you have the skills and experience then you have a chance surely
Oh but then just read about your perfect fit job so fingers crossed thats the one and you get it! Im sure you will end up with something though! So what do you think DP is going to 'blow your mind' with while you are away?? Lol I was thinking one thing..... Maybe you will leave with a DP come back with a DF?
You know, the usual! Waiting waiting waiting. Thats all this TTC game is really, a whole bunch of waiting!
Hope everyone is well!
Posted 23 March 2012 - 10:43 AM
Thanks for the warm welcome girls! I hope everyone get their BFP soon, TTC sucks especially when everyone around you are either preggers or giving birth!Btw, I'm 31, DH is 29
Posted 23 March 2012 - 12:43 PM
Sooooooo.... technically this morning was the earliest I could test to see if I am UTD... So I did.... BFP!!!
So excited!!!! I'm hoping it's a sticky one! I don't know HOW I'm going to keep it quiet but I need to, just in case. So, I'll be in here for a while yet, I'm only 8DPO, though it's a fairly clear line, clearer than when I tested with DS1 and that was on the day AF was supposed to arrive. I'll be waiting until the 8-9 week mark to feel a bit more comfy but til then, I'll try to remain positive. bex
lovely, I would still go. Maybe hang out with the Dads if it's getting a bit much? They don't tend to talk about kids so much!!!
, here's the link to the apartment we stayed in, in the Marais. It was small but really nice, and the guy who owns it was really lovely to us - our bloody plane was cancelled at the last minute and he was totally fine with us checking out later that night rather than earlier in the morning as we had originally asked, didn't ask for any extra money or anything. So, check out all of his places as they seem very trustworthy (plus it all looked just like the pictures on the net, so that's always a good sign). I'd happily go back to one of his places.http://adrianleeds.com/parisapartments/le-charles-v
That's the one we got, just not sure if it'd be fine for 3 people. You'd be able to set up a portacot fine, not sure if they provide that. It's all one room, with a bathroom separate, so if you're fine with that it should be okay. Was close to lots of stuff too.
That's so cool you have a music degree - we should stick together, us creative types!!! We're putting Oliver! on at our school and it looks to be really good!!! Fairly sure when it all happens kids will You Tube it so I'll put a link up when that all happens. Won't be til June though. I've done Annie and The Venetian Twins before, so I know what I'm in for!!!! I'm always glad I do it but I seriously HATE lots of the process as it's such a big job and I have no tiiiiiiiiiiimmmmeee. Seriously worried about being tired now as basically I'll be in the 1st Trimester when it's the craziest time for the musical
And yes, we went to Bofinger!!! It was really nice - remember to ask for the English menu, we sat with the French one for ages trying to work it out!!! They have lovely seafood (you can see the little cart of fresh fish etc outside the restaurant) but do try to get some nice French traditional dishes! DH got a raw meat one, like a raw meatloaf!!! Was really very nice, but we were a bit scared to try it at first! Also, pleeeeeease do me a favour and go to that Breizh Cafe I mentioned - was the book your friend got you called 'Hungry For Paris'? Cuz that book has all the best eating places - ESSENTIAL! Not all places are nice!!!!!! Here's a link describing the cafe (you can look at their website too but it's all in french!):http://www.lebestofparis.com/shhhh/breizh-cafe
Btw LOL at your daughter!!! That's what you get for having a mum who writes books!!! She has very high standards!
Sorry for only a couple of personals, had a small window to post this and then I'm off. Hope everyone else is going well!!!!

Congrats on your BFP!!!! aurora sleeping
how exciting u do realise there's a chance u could have twinsssss if a line came up so early ehehheehehehhe you never know
It's good to know there is someone else waitingggggggggg it's worse then the 2WW it's doing my head in
to everyone just laying low and doing a lot of this
I hope there are more BFPs very very soon
Posted 23 March 2012 - 12:54 PM
GIRLS ... I am scared ... I just started bleeding ... and it's bright pink ... and i'm meant to be ovulating not having a period ... what should I do?
Posted 23 March 2012 - 01:02 PM
The last period I had was kind of weird, light, the one day i considered heavy had old blood like the dark brown, and the next days were more like spotting ... i didn't even bother to test as based on my temp just figured it was normal period but lighter and maybe because of herbs ... i am SHI!!NG myself ... i feel like crying ... i don't know what to do ... this bleeding is like when I lost DDs twin - bright pink and very wet ...
Posted 23 March 2012 - 01:10 PM
Oh no Cheri
- Do you have a HPT handy? I have no idea but i feel your nervousness? Can you get into the dr for some blood tests?
Just looked at your chart again and to me it doesnt look like you ever ovulated last month? Maybe you are having a weird cycle because of the herbs. Ive decided to stay away from natural therapys for a few months to hopefully let my body sort its self out post pill.Aurora
- Congrats love and looks like you might get your girl baby after all. 8 DPO is very early to have a positve test are you sure you didnt ovulate earlier?
