mamabug - hope you are doing ok and are at peace with your decision not to continue ac bbighug.gif

ames - far out your beta isn't too far away now (easy for me to say hey!)  goodluck!!

Does anyone know what happens in december with FS and cycles?? Can you start a stim cyle in december - is there a shut down over xmas, do FS take lots of time off etc  It looks like i'll be doing the fet in early nov (hows that for a bold predicition!) so i'm wondering if i can do a stim cycle in december if it doesn't work. any thoughts/experiences would be appriciated.

undercover - hope your doing ok!

Its very clinic dependent.  Some clinics shut down for an extended period over xmas/new year, others don't shut at all.  The only day my clinic wouldn't do EPU was xmas day!!  The bigger the clinic, the more likely it wont shut or only shut for a few days, but some individual FS may be away over that period, so if you needed EPU or transfer it would be done by another FS, and your cycle may be monitoring by a different FS (ie making decisions re timing of EPU, cancelling etc).  The only way to know is to ring your FN/clinic for the clinic closures and then check with your individual FS.  For clinics that close for more than a few days, they will usually have a cut-off day by which you would need to start a stim cycle.

sqawk - thanks for the info.  I have one frostie left, so when I see my FS to start that cycle I'll ask him what the xmas situation is.  I think if he goes on holidays I may just rest and get going on a stim in the new year.

ames - thinking of you and hoping and crossing everything that all is well.

Hi to anyone else if anyone else is still reading.

HCG (at 16dpo) came in at 706 (and yes only had 1 transferred) and progesterone 100.

So having a repeat blood test Friday morning to check it's increasing and then after that will organise for a scan in a couple of weeks.

I was in complete shock (still am).

Wanted to thank you all for this group - I will everyone the best of luck.

Hi girls,im sorry Ive been MIA for the last few weeks. I have been working 5 days a week and then planning for my DDs 4th birthday party which is now over. I also had my parents stay for 2 weeks. My mum has mental issues and if I leave her on her own for two longs she freaks out so Ive pretty much been at her beck and call when im at home. They have now gone so i can breathe again.

Firstly Mama....Im so sad to hear that your frosties didnt thaw. I hope you are at peace with your decision at this point. I cant remember how old you were but can you pick up in a year or 2 if you are in a better place. Getting to that point must have been hard. Much love to you xxx bbighug.gif

Ames....my FS doesnt recommend the 2 emby transfer either. i guess thats the difference between a responsible FS and some idiot who puts stats before patients. The risk involved with carry twins is so much greater than a single pregnancy. Im guessing you would be past your 2ww as of yesterday so how are things going? Im praying that all will be good hands.gif

Kitty , how are things with you going. Hope youre ok As for transferring etc at xmas time we had our egg pick up and transfer mid december of 05 and found out xmas eve we had our bfp I think they closed down for the standard public holidays but were back up and running before new years.

Hi sqawk....are you doing IVF would be nice if you want to join us wink.gif

As for me aside from my crazy month of having my mum here and working flat out Ive been put on to perm hours so Mon to fri 830 till 1pm great hours. I am just trying to save some money to have our next cycle but the desire to just go and have it done now is overwhelming. I see new born babies and pregnant ladies every day and I so want it to be me. Ive had ds in hospital last week. He suffers from cronic constipation and hes been put on this medication which sees him pooing without any warning so he is back in nappies. A little disappointing as hes quite embarressed about it so hopefully we can get it fixed and he will be ok again. Hope all is going ok for everyone oh and yes you can call me UCF or Deb if you like

ETA OMG that is awesome news Ames cclap.gif  ddance.gif  eexcite.gif Well done Heres praying for a very uneventful 8mths xxxx

ames Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That is so fantastic love those numbers too.  I hope you have a very uneventful pregnancy.

UCF - good to hear from you, I know what you mean about the overwhelming desire to get the cycles going.  I'm still waiting for AF (well it has only been 3 weeks since the d & c but i am not a patient person!) and just can't wait to go again.  I hope your DS feels better soon poor little mite that doesn't sound like much fun at all.

When AF comes I'll probably join the ready set go buddy group.  I'm not sure if its ok to join if you already have had previous success with IVF so i'll have to check that out, but will still be lurking around.

Thanks for the congrats.  Just waiting to get past Friday's repeat blood test before I get too carried away.

Not feeling that great - been to the doctors this morning and have a throat infection.

Thinking of you all.

Great news ames! (Yes, I am still lurking).

UCF - no more tries. Age is not on our side. We will continue to try on our own until the end o the year. We have a couple more chances yet.

Had my follow up blood test yesterday - HCG is up to 3,200.  Booked in for first u/s on 14/10 - just when I thought my 2ww's were over....I still have another one to deal with  wacko.gif

Leez - awww...thanks so much.  Haven't seen you around for ages.  I hope you have success soon.

Mamabug - I've seen you've got EB buzzing with stalkers! lol  Good luck with trying by yourselves and hope you get a lovely surprise.
