Well Minni is finally updating because she hasn't had a computer for nearly 4 weeks. Oooooh I've missed you guys!
Congrats to everyone here at the moment. You are all doing ab fab!
Just a quick note before I take Miss Two down to the park but......


BFP for me as well!!!

Broke my bloody thermometer and decided "What the hey?" So I tried for a cycle without temping. No stress but a lot of fun! And it worked. Think I'm due about 14/4/05 but my cycles are generally shorter so won't know until I've seen the OB. Going to see my GP tomorrow though and my OB in a couple of weeks.
So far the nausea is pretty good but the bb's are sore. I have to pinch myself some days because I can't believe it finally happened and I don't really feel that pg - YET!
Got a few issues with if it will stick etc because I nearly lost Miss Two but so far I haven't even seen one spot this time round.
I'll chat to you all later.

edited to say: That I got my HPT on my 39th birthday last week.

Lastly i had my downreg blood test today and all is good.  We start stimming tomorrow, on our way wink.gif  Now the fun injecting morning and night begins.

Hi to everyone else.  Look forward to reading your updates.  Anyone going to watch the games?  I hope i can wake up and watch the opening ceremony, i love that stuff!

Hi all, sorry been out of action for a bit, works been crazy and crap, the 2 c's.  Well, finally the REAL AF arrived, which now means my tracking can begin. I had BT last week, and have another on Monday. On Tuesday i have to head to the city (Im in WA) for a  dye test thingy, to see if my fallopian tubes are working or if they are fritzed out by blockage. Hmm. Not looking forward to that, funny, when I think tests are going to be a pain (in more ways than one), I read this thread and realise that some of my new friends on here have gone thru heaps more than me!  so THANKS!  Will let you all know more later. Take care all.  Wishing you all stars and BFP for those TTC, and baby stars for the others!

Hi everyone

My 2WW is over  - the results are in - BFN.

I was expecting it as I have had a headache on and of all weekend which is what I always get just before AF arrives.  So she should be here soon - b**ch!

I was just pretending I wasnt in the 2ww all week as it was Georgina's 3rd birthday on Saturday and we had a party for her on Sunday so I wanted to have a happy weekend.  I was just thinking I have been TTC for 2/3 of her life now.  Poor little bugger putting up with such a hormonal mum!

I also received some other bad news in the 2ww my grandma passed away. She reached the ripe old age of 90 and had had a pretty good life but it is still sad to see her go.

Minni big congrats to you. Hope that little one is snuggling in tight.

Mergie Happy Birthday to you

JB Happy Birthday to you hope the stiming is going well

Hope everyone else is well

Oh Jane I'm sorry what a crap couple of days you have had there.  Firstly i'm so sorry to hear about your Grandma and secondly your negative, IT SUCKS, it's not fair ;(  What now?  You have some frosties dont you?  How are you feeling?  In shock or you just sort of expect it now and don't get your hopes up? (sounds like me).  I sure hope things improve for you soon Jane, I bet you need time out just to cope with everything right now.

Wishingstar you probably won't get this time but good luck for your tests tomorrow.  I've had that done but it was under a general anaesthic when they did a lap as well.  Hopefully they won't find anything and it will just clear out the cobwebs (if there are any of course) and make it easier for the little embies to stick original.gif

I turned 41 on the w/e so eggies a yr older wink.gif  I hate the statistics move up even further for decreasing your odds of pregnancy etc but hey what can you do.  We started injecting last friday, twice a day.  Already feeling like 'oh oh'. Last time for sure i could feel my ovaries twinging and tweaking so i knew things were happening, this time nothing - which to my mind means less eggs and i really need more at my age seeing this is the last stim cycle.  Go for my 1st scan this Friday and this will give me an indication of what is happening on the egg front.

Hope everyone else is well and will check by and let us know how youre' doing.
Have a good week.

Afternoon Ladies

Been a busy girl all last week but I'm back just in time to read the fabulous news about Minni, well done!!! I hope the next 8 months are a breeze.

And a big Happy Birthday to you JB!!  I hope the needles didn't distract from having a fab day.

Jane - sorry to hear about the witch.  Try and remember all the wonderful things that happened at your DD's birthday, hopefully this will ease some of the pain.

Kim - What a great updated list, keep up the good work.

Wishingstar - Thinking of you today, hope the tests go well.

As for me, celebrated the 21st anniversary of my 21st on Friday night, a few champers and loads of fun looking through my actual 21st Birthday Album.  God, were there a few shockers in amongst that lot!!!

SSSHHHH!!!  AF hasn't shown yet, she's a day and a half late, don't let her know where I am will you!!!
Load of cramps happening though so I'm more or less thinking, just get it over and done with and show up, don't torture me for 3 days like last cycle you COW!!
Then again, who knows??  I'm not even thinking about testing until at least the weekend if she's not here. I did an aerobics classs yesterday and swimming this morning, in the back of my mind I'm thinking that should have "shook" her out by now. Gee, I hate this waiting and hoping, don't you??

Hi to Tuxbird, Jonaiden, Morgansacre, Mamadom and anyone else I've missed.  

I'll keep you posted on the witch.

Take care

Hello everyone, well what a %&%$ day I have had. Had that dye test thing today.  Well, that was THE most excrushiating (spelling?) thing I have ever gone through.  There I was, in stirups, doc saying, this will be like a period pain, then whammo!  Like a electric shock up the "u know where", and agin, and again, then I black out.  Wake up to nurses saying to me...open your eyes honey, and wiping face with a cold cloth.  had to stay at hospital for 5 hours, and they were reluctant to let me drive home after the 5 hours, but had no one to collect me.  So, there i was in hospital and of course i just lost it, couldnt stop crying like a blubbering idiot.  I kept seeing these ladies undergoing chemo who were getting scans too, and that reminded me of my mum, who lost her battle with breast cancer 2 years ago.  I just wanted my mum then and there, and it was just so so horrible.  Now im home with DB, and still feeling icky in the pelvic area, but will have a good nite sleep and move on.  have to have an ultrasound on the ovaries (i think) on thurs, and pooping myself that the same blacking out thing will happen again.   :quest:
I will send personal messages next time 2 you all, just need to get some rest and a good cuddle from DB.  night all...

Well looks like I didnt hide well enough, the AF b*tch found me in the wee hours this morning.

Id rather she came early than late, at least then you dont get your hopes up like I have these last 2 cycle.

Its back on Clomid this cycle.  I have my PCT booked for 30th August which will be CD13.  I hope the timing is right, Im not sure what they do if its not.

Weve been putting off a ski trip which Im now going to book.  Ive had my life on hold these last few months waiting to see what might happen.  I figure we may as well get out there and have our little holiday in the snow and leave everything up to the baby gods this cycle.

Wishingstar - sounded like you had a dreadful time of it yesterday, hope you're feeling better today.

Hi to everyone else, take care for now...

Oh Wishingstar you poor love that is just terrible and i so feel for you being alone there.  You really needed a loved one there to hold you hand after.  WHen i had those tests done i was under anaesethic as i had a lap done too.  I have heard of other women experiencing pain too who have been awake and others who are fine so i think its a personal thing.  That is really frightening you blacked out and then were reminded of your dear mum.  So sorry you had to go thru that.  Are you feeling any better today?  Now you know why we go under anaesethic to get our eggs taken out for IVF!

Mergie how exciting!!!!  So what's todays news?  SUrely you can't keep us all in suspenders till the w/e???!!!!!  Got everything crossed here for you.  I would love to share a pregnancy with you!

I'm just bloated stimming on injections now.  Go for my 1st scan on friday to check on follicles, fingers crossed i have loads of eggs.

Any other news from anyone?
Better get back to work.

Evening everyone!  Well, I survived the ultrasound..was quite worried after the dye episode!  Thanks JB for your thoughts  and to Mergie and Gummy, I have got my "oomph" back and ready for the next few days!  I was told by the fert clinic to go crazy with BDing last night, so I got all cosy with DB, all romantic like and had a good "session".  Was really funny though, all I could think about was Ian Thorpe, and i was willing the "swimmers" to go like the thorpedo!!  (didnt tell DB that though).  Well, even though I supposed to O last night, didnt happen (had blood test today), so hoping it will be tonight or over the weeeknd.  Would you believe it!  DB is on nightshift, and I missed seeing him this arvo for a "session" coz I got home from work late! AARRRRRGGGHH.  He is a police officer (mmm men in uniforms always do it for me..) so Im thinking of doing ringing up the copshop and saying im in distress...and to send him over..heheheheh.  You can tell im in a better mood than i was last time i posted!  Hopefully he will get home in time before I fall asleep, otherwise the egg and tadpole will not meet!  Tragic!!  Well, heres hoping you all have luck with the "swimmers" in your life, and GO FOR GOLD!!

Hi everyone,
Finally had a chance to get back on and try to catch up on where everyone is at. We have all been sick and Ethan also sprouted his first two teeth so the last few weeks have been a bit of a blur. I hope we are all over it now, we just seemed to be passing it back and forth between us all the time.

Wishingstar, it is good to hear you sounding better after your horrible dye experience. I was cringing as I read your post because it sounded so painful and horrible to go through. I loved your Thorpedo thoughts, LOL! I was thinking similar things last night because we started the BD fest for real last night. It seems so strange to be starting the whole TTC thing again for real. At this stage I am not stressing at all because we are just starting again and I think I have just been too flat out with Ethan and work and everything else to think about it too much, which is probably a good thing. If nothing happens in the next few months I am sure the worry will start to creep in.

Mergi, I am so sorry the Witch found you. It is impossible to not get your hopes up when she is late though isn't it? The ski trip sounds like a great idea. Just go and have fun and have a fabulous time.

JB,hope your scan went well on Friday and that you have loads of eggs. I have my fingers crossed for you.

OOps... Ethan is ready for some breakfast.... better go!

A big hello to everyone else.

Cheers,

Jill

Afternoon Ladies

What fabulous weather we are having here in Melbourne at the moment.  I've been laying out on the grass playing with DS for about an hour and much to my horror we nearly miss New McDonalds Farm!!  DS loves this show so while he's entranced by the tele I thought I'd pop in and say hi.

The ski trip is booked!!  Sunday 5th Sept to Wed 8th Sept.  Can't wait to get away and spend some quality time with the family.  It's great timing as I'll be at around CD20 so no need to worry about ttc while we're away, who knows we might even just BD for the hell of it LOL.

Took my first Clomid last night and already I can feel those ovaries tingling.  One week to go before my PCT, I'm quite looking foward to it to see what the heck is going on in there.

Wishingstar - loved your Ian Thorpe story, way to go.  I can't even muster romance these days, I might have to take your lead and fantasize a little!! LOL

Gummybear - gee you have been having fun lately, hope things are settling down a bit for you now.

Seahorse - ARGHHH teething, what a joy, I hope you and the family are feeling alot better soon.

JB - thanks for all your advise and info.  I'm from the Western Suburbs - Ardeer.

Better get cracking and think about tea.  I really feel like a BBQ tonight!!  It only takes a couple of nice days and all of a sudden I think I'm in the tropics!!  I'm in for a rude shock when I hit the slopes aren't I.

Take care everyone, and HI to all I've missed.

Hi Girlies,
feeling a bit flat.  Went for my 2nd u/s today and who could believe those follies would grow so incredibly fast. My body sux  I went for a scan last Friday and my leading follies were 12mm.  As a rule of thumb your follicles (most will contain eggs) will grow approx 2mm a day and they are around 25mm when picked up.  Except what you don't want is some to race ahead in the race and some to lag behind - which is what has happened to me.  See IVF is never a bloody dull moment is it.  The largest follies i had on friday were 12mm. Today i had a 22 and 20mm follie. The rest were like 1 at 17, 2 x 15 and lower and lower. Had a discussion with my nurse could i just let the 2 large follies go and go the extra day and have Egg Pick Up on Thursday so the middle of the range follies would be mature enough. No, cause if i ovulated EPU would be cancelled as ovulating would effect the quality & size of the rest. She rang me as i was leaving for the accountants to say you have to make your mind up in 10 minutes if you want EPU (egg pick up) on wed or Thursday (i took the day off work today for a quality day with analeise but it didnt turn out that way sad.gif). The reality is i am not sniffing syneral (downregulating so i dont ovulate - as it effects egg quality so my Dr thinks) so it is quite possible i could ovulate tomorrow with those 2 stupid leading follies or i could take the chance and wait a day and allow the others to catch up. stress, stress, pressure, pressure!

I really wanted to wait another day as there is no doubt i would get more eggs - i reckon 10, but the reality is those leading ones are ready to pop and if that happens EPU is cancelled so in the end i agree to wed. We triggered 3hrs ago (this is the final injection which fattens up the eggs and times them to ovulate in exactly 36hrs) . I feel cheated!  I already feel this cycle is lost, i expect my worst EPU ever now, i reckon 5 or 6 eggs, gees after 15 eggs 2 months ago. I KNOW it only takes one, but at my age i need lots of eggs cause like only 1 or tops 2 in 10 will be normal. I shouldnt give up but i just feel mad with my own body for doing that! What can you do eh, so EPU is Wed now. I wonder if i am so run down, working and tired and cycling again so soon has effected this cycle...  Its such a bloody effort to just get pregnant, i'm so tired of this.  Anyway enough whinging from me.

Wishingstar glad to hear you are feeling better now and I like your torpedo story too!

Girolama good to 'see' you and thanks for the updated chart on where everyone is.

Seahorse welcome back and good luck!

Mergie glad you booked a trip, something else to focus on!

Hope I haven't left anyone out but want to get to bed and fatten up these eggs.
Have a good week girls, will check back in after egg pickup.  Think i'll ask them to knock me out for a couple of extra hours so i can catch up on some sleep wink.gif

Hi Guys!
Just a quick pop-in. EDD is 13/4/04.
Thanks for the good wishes but everything isn't really going cruizy. Been spotting on and off for past couple of weeks. Had two HCG blood tests and although my levels are rising, they didn't 'double' as the dr predicted. Had t/v u/s last week and the OB identified a sac but am seeing the OB again today. Hoping this time there will be a heartbeat. I'm 7 weeks tomorrow.
I have all these fears that something is wrong so really would like to know one way or another. My m/s is completely different to my previous pregnancies - I'm only getting queasy for part of the day. Nothing to write home about really. Just hoping that I'm one of these lucky people that is going to cruise it through but the pessimist in me says that isn't going to happen.
Will let you all know what the outcome is.

Congrats to those others of you with BFP's. Hope your pregnancies are wonderful for you.
Mergie - sorry to hear the bad news. Hope it works out for you.
JB - Go enjoy your holiday.
Giro - Hang in there love. Hope this little bub of yours behaves itself and wear ear muffs to muffle the church bells. original.gif

HI Ladies

JB you poor love that just sucks your right there is never a dull moment with IVF.  I would have thought that they could have given you either Orgalutran or Cetratide to delay O by a day and then triggered.  Was that an option???  I know you have already triggered so it doesnt really matter.  Chin up there could be a few extra follies hiding around the back that they couldnt see on the scan and a few of the smaller ones might fatten up nicely.  Sending you lots of positive vibes for EPU.  Good Luck.

Mergie so sorry AF found you.  Your right you cant put you life on hold forever (wish I could take my own advice!!!) enjoy the skiing

Wishingstar what a horrible experience glad you are feeling better now go Thorpies!.

Gummybear good to have you back

Seahorse good luck with the TTC stay as relax as you can for as long as possible

Girolama you take it easy girl bit early for little titch to be popping its head out yet.  Stay put Titch!

As for me AF arrived in full force after my failed cycle and at the same time I ended up with the Flu. So I had stuff coming out everywhere (sorry TMI)  I can truly say that I have not been this sick for a longggg time.  I have had the worst headache, sore throat and fevers and to top things off I have now lost my voice!  Thank god I can still type my only way to communicate at the moment.  Good fun trying to control a 3 year old when you can only whisper!  I have been putting it off but I guess I had better go to the doctor and get some drugs to fix me up.  I was going to head straight into a FET cycle but I think I will put it off for a month given that I have been sick probably not ideal conditions for the little ones.

Hello to everyone else

Hey, Kim I loved your updates. original.gif Little Titch - STAY PUT. Your Mum's tummy is a great place to be.

Funny, the things that happen. Yes, DH has got me off the computer and - well - we BD yesterday at day CD14. We went to my Mum's house last night and she's got a blood pressure moniter - as she's had 2 heart attacks - checked mine - 135/101 (rather high). Went to the doctors this morning 135/99. He was concerned. Took bloods and I've got two 24 hours wee tests to do. Now I don't want to fall pregnant cause if there is anything wrong with me I want it fixed before getting pregnant. I've never (even with my pregnancy with DS) had high blood pressure - always a little low if anything. Sorry, just a little scared here. cool.gifo:

So, the funny thing is we may have 'done it' on the right day but I now don't want to be pregnant, Hope you can understand this. But results will be in soon so hopefully things are OK.

Hi Ladies
Wow - what a roller coaster out there!

Kim - onya for doing another update - but I'm still trying to work out who's doing what and where and when and what's going in what's going out - bugger AF's arriving, Titches wanting to come out early.............. by the way - hope you managed to get some sleeps after little Bec had her time in the park!

Me??  Had OB last week.  All pretty good.  Bloods..... Iron levels have dropped badly so am now on an iron supplement YUK YUK YUK - its an organic liquid - Floradix - so I'm just drinking that twice a day.

Sleep........ what's that??? Mother nature plays cruel games on us I reckon........ my tummy just hurts!!!

DK'H and I are heading up to the Sunshine Coast in early Sept so I CAN'T WAIT FOR THAT! original.gif

Bubba's going out of control - loves the Olympics!!!  So bubba's doing heaps of "dancing" DK'H and I are still doing our "dancing"..... wink.gif He has his moments.  Reckon the antenatal classes are going to freak him out as he'll then realise what sort of support/comfort he'll actually have to do! LOL!

Work - flat chat - OB wants me to cut back to 4 days per week - but coming to some sort of arrangement with my boss to come in a little later and leave earlier - still have builders at home and that's no fun!!!

Gotta get back to it!
Take care all, big hugs, lots of shagging and resting too!

Hi Chicks,

Gosh so much to catch up on, lucky for the fab up-to-date list,
way to go Kim!
I am in the 2WW and worried because I don't seem to have
any imaginary symptoms! What's wrong with me, have I
stopped obsessing? Not sure when AF is due now after the
32 day cycle last time, maybe tomorrow, maybe next week,
maybe on the full moon, but no more hpts for me.

KIM - Ooooh tell that little titch to stop head-butting and stay
snug with mum. Maybe he can imagine the gelato you are
eating? Do you want to swap some of those annoyong
church bells for some screaming Sydney jumbos, hehe?

Minni - So sorry sweetie you are having a hard time with your
pregnancy. I hope you get some reassuring news soon and
can feel more positive. I'm sure ANY morning sickness is a
really good sign. I will cross everything for you.

Wishing star - I hope you get some worthwhile answers after
all those nasty tests.

Mergi - LOL, you Melboune chicks crack me up about the
weather. I am originally from there so I know what you mean
about suddenly getting frisky and feeling tropical just
because the mercury peeked over 15 for a second. I love
ringing people there on x-mas day to hear them say they
have the fire going 'just for effect'. I am so jealous about the
skiing! Happy jooshing snow-bunny. I've heard it's a bumper
season. I have gone from skiing everyday last year to zero
this year. You can see this difference in my very unsvelte
figure too.

JB - Happy birthday for last week. Seems like you can't shake
that drastic decisions karma though. Maybe you need to find
a little idol or saint to chant to for guidance? Cheer up
though. It seems from your stories about IVF that something
that sounds bad news one day can suddenly turn into a lucky
break the next. Sorry, I probably don't know enough about it
to be saying stuff like that. But it is true for all of us that it
really does only take one, it just has to be the right needle in
the haystack. I am not a big believer in odds stacking, the
one you are meant to have will probably be the lucky one,
even if it's only one out of five instead of 15.

Jo - Good luck with the tests. Weird that you would have high
BP all of a sudden.

Gummybear - glad all is ok with the pg. Lucky your m/s is not
too bad dealing with animal gore and cow patties on a daily
basis. I will always imagine you wading around in gumboots
now!

Mazee - Good to hear all is great but busy. Did you know if
you cook in cast iron it gets lots of iron into your food, besides
being a good excuse to buy fancy cookware?

Hi to Jane, Seahorse and anyone else I have missed.

edited to say, yes JB I agree, don't leave the lone ranger out
in the cold (so to speak).

Sigh......never a dull moment with me and IVF.  My nurse rang me at home just before i left for work this morning, she was concerned that those 2 leading eggs may have ovulated which will totally stuff up and cancel my egg pickup.  Something about if they ovulate the fluid from this will run all over the other un-ovulated eggs and damage them and compromise the quality and size, they will be useless sad.gif

Went for blood tests this morning and my hormone levels clearly indicate in am 'in the process' of ovulating as they say.  What exactly does 'in the process mean'?  I mean how long does it take to ovulate?  They are still going ahead with egg pickup tomorrow as we 'triggered' last night at 6.30pm so need too.  When you 'trigger' you take an injection that makes you ovulate those eggs exactly 36hrs later, so even if the lead ones did already, the rest will at that time tomorrow.  My Dr is still holding hope i haven't ovulated yet (as in the eggs bursting out of the follicles).  Can you think eggs, eggs, eggs for me and NO OVULATION!  I feel at this stage i have been thru every friggen IVF scenario there is, but no i always get thrown another challenge and obstacle!  I am coming down with a cold too, not surprised i am so run-down.  

Mamadom i really like your scenario and yes you are right.  Sometimes the worst cycles of IVF turn out to be the winners - however i need eggs to be in the race!!  Will probably take the next 3 days off work to recover.  Here we go again........tomorrow i am going to ask them to knock me out for 2 or 3hrs so i can catch up on some zzzzzzzzz'ssssssss.  They probably won't knock me out that long but i can only ask right!  8.30am it is.  Comeon eggies hang in there.

Oh JB! Sending you eggs eggs eggs vibes and NO OVULATION!

Sorry but it reminds me of that classic cliche!

HE: "Honey! How do you like your eggs in the morning?
SHE: "Unfertilized!"

Only your response would be

"Unovulated thanks!"

Fingers crossed!

Get some Zzzzzzzs

Jen (JB),

Hope you don't mind the barge - but thought I might find you around here. Just wanted to wish you luck for your EPU today.  Sorry to see you've got leading follicles - I've had that before too and its a real pain.  Hope that you at least get 5-6 mature ones and they do well for you.

Afternoon All

Just popping in to give my support to JB, who will of no doubt had her EPU by now.

I have everything crossed for you and hope you get the egg count you want and so much deserve.

Ohh, almost forgot, Thanks Kim for the great list.  I hope Titch is being kind to his/her Mummy these days.

Take care
