Kat - how are you going with the drugs? Good luck for this cycle.

 

Shiv - you might have already done this but a lot of specialists have a cancellation list which you can ask to go on. It would only really help if you think you might get your period before your appointment. My clinic also requires you to have up to date reubella vaccination and I think both you and your partner need HIV screening. I found getting started quite slow so you'll probably have plenty of time to get it all done if you haven't already. After the FS signed the IVF paperwork we had to both go to an initial nurse interview where they discussed payment options explained the procedure and showed me how to use the injection pen. All up there was about 6 weeks between signing the paperwork and then actually starting. Part of that time was just waiting for my next cycle so it could be faster for you.

 

MrsPrawn - how did the counselling session go?

 

Pinki - that's such a shame you're missing out again. I have to say you're attitude to it all is amazing.

 

Elsee - I'm wondering if my FS will want to do a lap too. She suggested it once before but changed her mind.

 

Tracey - good luck today. Thinking of you.

 

BabyGame - that's great news. Good luck for some great envies.

 

animal - I hope this is it for you. Fingers crossed.

Thanks vanilla bean.

 

I've been seeing a FS for a few months now, and I have an appointment in 2 weeks to talk about IVF. I don't know whether the ball starts rolling from that point, or if I then get referred to a clinic? Anticipating a bit of a wait to fill paperwork etc, before actually beginning treatment.

Hi ladies, just wondering who u hear from regarding fertilisation results, do u hear from the nurse or from the scientist person? I'm getting mixed messages from my clinic. I'm sure I was told I was to speak to the nurse and it also says this on their website but when I rang they said it's the scientist person, so receptionist said to just wait to hear....more waiting....

Hi All

 

Good news Babygame :) I got updated by the scientists regarding my embys but its probably different at each clinic.

 

Congrats on the transfer Animal - see you over in the 2WW!! I've got everything crossed for both of us this month!!!

 

AFM - Just had my FET and feeling much better than last time, only a minor niggle of discomfort and it all went much more smoothly. Hopefully a sign of things to come... :)

Babygame, fantastic results! Fingers crossed for Monday. :)

 

Tracey, I'm glad the transfer was easier this time. Best of luck with your wait. Hope it is good news for you this time. x

 

Animal, hope the wait goes well for you too with good news at the end!

 

Vanilla, let us know what your FS says after your next appointment. Hope you are doing ok.

 

THESMD, sounds like you had a productive debrief. I used Saizen (growth hormone) last cycle and I don't have low AMH. My FS thought it made a difference to our egg quality. It is hard when different specialists say different things! When do you think you will be able to get going?

 

AFM, lap is on Wednesday. Feeling nervous but hopefully it is a positive step forward either way.

Shiv, is your FS part of a clinic or in their own practice? I would think they'd be connected to a clinic or if not, I guess they would need to refer you.

 

Tracey, glad to hear that your FET went a lot smoother this time. I bet that was a relief!

 

Good luck to those in the 2ww, I hope to join you in a couple of weeks.

 

Elsee, good luck with your lap!

Tracey- that's great your transfer went better than last time. I'm still feeling a bit sore from EPU, how long does it last?? Have needed to take some pain relief to fill it down.

 

THESMD- yes it is disappointing that no one called me like they were suppose to. And when I rang this morning the receptionist was the one that told me what it was, different to yesterday's receptionist. I had originally asked to speak to the nurse but she was with someone so the receptionist told me the results, then the nurse called me later and told me the same results. Anyway I know now

 

Elsee- good luck with the lap, hope it all goes smoothly.

 

AFM- just waiting and hoping we get some good embryos for transfer/freeze and hopefully it will be the one!

Hi ladies,

 

My name is Jess , I hope that i am posting in the right area. I am just about to start IVF, ICSI in about 8 weeks or so , having surgery for the 4th time to deal with my severe endometriosis first in a few weeks and i have to wait at least 6 weeks for healing before i can start with IVF. Cysts have now developed on my ovaries since my last surgery 12 months ago. These have been causing excruciating pain.

 

I guess i just wanted a place to come and talk with women who understand and have exprienced similar thoughts and feelings as i am. My last surgery was a little traumatic , i ended up having to stay a week in hospital due to the extent of the disease and removal of my appendix as the endometriosis had consumed it.

 

I am not looking forward to having surgery again for the 4th time and so close to the last. I will also loose some eggs during the removal ( however i luckily have high AMH levels so the dr thinks its not too concerning) i still find it a litte upsetting to think of loosing some.

 

On top of this there are other personal issues that have been difficult to deal with over the last 6 months. I am in newcastle and going through genea , soon i will be able to access the councilling service there which i am thinking may be of good use :)

 

i look forward to hearing from you all :)

Hi jaeh, welcome. It sounds like you've been through so much already and still have quite a bit ahead of you. You're definitely in the right place here, whether you have questions or just want to stalk/read! I hope your stay here is short and successful. Good luck with your surgery. Be sure to let us know how you go.

Hi Jeah- like TCCC said you are in the right place. Sorry you are here but welcome!

 

Butterfly- welcome and congrats on the awesome fertilization rate. Way to go!

 

Babygame- sending positive vibes your way! Grow embies grow! Keep us posted on transfer dates and growth. It's so exciting!! ( and nerve wracking) but you are on the home stretch!

 

Animal and Tracey- best wishes in the 2 WW!! It's getting a bit crowed in here. Bought time some of you girls move on;)

 

THESMD- glad everything went well with the FS. Sounds like you have a good one. Really hoping this next cycle is the lucky one for you xxx

 

Prima and Kat- hopefully sims is going well and you both are getting close to EPU

 

Elsee- will be thinking of you on wed. Hopefully you will be back on team in no time.

 

Shiv and Mrs P- hope you are both traveling well. Seems like the hardest part of this is all the waiting and more waiting..

 

Vanilla- been thinking about you hon.. Let us know what the next step is. Wishing I had some amazing advice for you but all we can do is keep our chin up and carry on right.. Hope DH is dong ok..

 

Lol just thought that you never see any of those t- shirts that say "keep calm and IVF on" I'd probably punch someone if I did..

 

Sorry must be the cough syrup talking.. Have a bit of a cold and indulging in all the meds.. Probably a good thing I didn't cycle this month. Couldn't imagine stims and the flu..

 

Hopefully I didn't miss anyone here. Always hard with new threads

Hi ladies, just a quick update. Called the lab this morning so day 4, at this stage out of the 8 that fertilized only 1 has made it to morula stage. She said the rest were fragmented. She said to call again tomorrow morning to see how that one is going and hopefully will have something to transfer tomorrow. I'm a bit disappointed at the result but I guess it only takes one! Fingers crossed we get one and that one is the ONE!

Hi ladies.

 

Thanks Pinki and Vanilla.

 

Yup picked up the meds and I start them this week and our pick up is at the end of the month.

 

All is going well except my filling fell out so I am in a little bit of pain until I see the dentist but otherwise we are traveling well...for now.

 

Welcome Jess..I think that counseling would be good to unload any stresses to.

 

Baby I am so sorry but I hope the little one is the one for you.

 

Welcome too to DButterfly, good wishes to you for Wednesday.

Hi all. I've been pretty miserable this weekend. It's weird because I really wasn't as hopeful or excited as I was the first time round but it's hit me a lot harder. A good friend announced her pregnancy yesterday, this will be her third child. I just feel like I'm surrounded by people who have just had a baby or who are pregnant and I feel a little lonely. It's nice to have you all who understand what it's like. My next appointment is not till the 24th but I might get an earlier one. I'm going to try and not think about IVF for a few weeks and try and remember what life was like before I was consumed by the TTC journey.

Vanilla- take all the time you need..I'll still be here when you get back!

 

I had 9 nieces and nephews before my lucky cycle. And most of my friends kids are old enough to babysit mine now. Only perk from infertility

 

Have a nice break and I vote for sushi, wine, hot bubble baths, lots of soft cheese, girls night out, shopping for impractable lingerie and spontaneous BD with DH.. ;)

Oh baby- that must be very disappointing for you. I hope that this one is a strong little fighter and is 'the one' for you!

 

Vanilla- I'd prescribe what Pinki said. It all sounds lovely to me. I hope that you start to feel better soon. I had a mini meltdown last night too. Not sure what set it off. I'm blaming the progesterone!

 

DarkCK- I hope your tooth gets fixed soon. Ouch!

 

Jaeh- I hope your surgery goes well. And if you have lots of questions be sure to ask us all. Everyone here is super supportive and nice.

 

Good luck to everyone xx
