Thank you everyone for your congratulations.

Aqua, How are they doing your HSG? Wishing you all the best for it and take it easy afterwards. I so want to take DD to see Arthur Christmas but she doesn't really enjoy the cinema :( ;D!!

Bubbs, Enjoy seeing your bean next week and let us know how it was.

Lily, I don't think there is such thing as a saint in life is there??? ;D We all have to have a balance of good vs evil, so long as it's mostly good then we're doing OK. I'm glad your appointment when well despite the specialist's faux pas. ???

Tiggeroo, How did your clinic visit go?

Jack, Keep the faith (in whatever that maybe) as they can happen  ;)

Darls and all else hello.

Like you lily and bubbs I will likely not be back until after Xmas due guests arriving the off visiting throughout the week. I wish you all a very merry Christmas and may we all get what we wish for in 2012 ^pray^ ^reiki^

Hi lovely ladies,

I hope you are all well and had an indulgent Christmas.

We had our scan appointment yesterday and all is well.  We took DS with us so it won't be long until everyone knows our news.

I hope 2012 is THE year for more BFPs on here.  Wishing you all a fantastic New Year and one filled with joy.

Bubbs

Hi Girls.
Just wanted to wish everyone a good 2012. I hope that this is the year we all get our BFP's, and lots of health and happiness.
Bubbs and Jem, glad everything is going well for you both, and the scans were all good.

Keep in touch. I've missed hearing how everyone is getting on the last few weeks.

Happy new year all :) I too hope this year is the best for us all

Bubbs - so pleased the scan went well. Does the whole world know your news now?

Hope everyone had good christmasses!

I'm hoping my health improves as the year goes on as I've done my back in :o I'm currently lying flat on my back trying not to move. I think it's bending down to help dd with her new scooter or my mum's theory is it's because I was jumping like a loon to the xbox kinnect that my brother's nephew brought round... Am feeling better today and am hoping I'll get into work tomorrow.

We're now eating organic, taking our vitamins and once this back is better I'm going to do yoga and swimming. Also next week we pick up the drugs for the madness to start yet again I also need to start acupuncture again as I was enjoying that. Might even see if I could get dh to have a go ;D

Take care like aqua would love to know how you're all getting on

Hi All
Happy New Year to you all. Long time no post or read but we got back from America yesterday and in my haze of jet lag, I am finally catching up on stuff. Firstly, I am so sorry to hear about your news lilyisabel. Absolutely devastating. I know how you feel as that's exactly what happened to us and it is just simply the worst phone call isn't it? Anyway, you are strong and there is time to try again and I am praying that 2012 will be our year.  That goes for all of us.  ^pray^

Welcome tiggeroo. When are you seeing the endocrinologist? Your TSH number sounds high still doesn't it? I remember reading somewhere that until it was below 2, your chances of a successful pregnancy were shortened and my doctor at the time kept telling me he didn't want us to try till my numbers were down and they got to 0.2 and then I got pregnant that month. Having said that, I have kept them low and still no joy    ::)
Excellent news about both your scans Jem and Bubbs.  Such an exciting time for you.  Keep taking good care of yourselves.  :)

Our break in the US was fanatic, always good for me to take DD there so she can spend time with my mum and sisters and all the cousins. I really do miss them when I am here and only wish we could move out there. Life too far from family is a half lived experience for me  :'( my DD just shines when she is near them, I adore seeing it.  And tomorrow, she starts nursery which makes me deeply anxious and then on top of that, AF showed up today which is no surprise but still a depressing surprise if you know what I mean. I am gutted and I know we are planning ICSi at the end of the month but it's openly human to keep hoping isn't it?

Anyway, that's our plan, carry on the healthy living and then start with the drugs again at the end of the month when I am due to start my next cycle.

Good to hear everyone else's news and hope you're all well,
X

Happy New Year Girls!!

I have been without PC whilst DH rebuilt it. My phone keeps crashing on FF so gave up trying :-[. Anyhow, my PC is nice and fast after it's reconditioning :)

Congrats on your scan Bubbs- fantastic news! I was thinking of you loads even though I have not been on. I bet word has spread fast. I was greeted at the school gates today by my DD's friend's asking: 'have you really got the baby in your tummy?'

Hi Aqua, How's things for you my lovely?

Lily, Ouch! Can you move yet? I feel your pain as my back is b*gger*d from all the surgery, nursing career, child hanging off it etc. It just *goes* if i am not a good girl and don't do my pilates. i like the sound of your plan... can you fit a spa day in there :)? I think it would do the world of good ( my personal view is anyone having IVF, it should be included in the cost ;D).

Darls, It's human to keep hoping. I don't think it goes away. I kept hoping i was pregnant even after starting DR. Keep the PMA going. I'm glad you had a lovely holiday. Good luck tomorrow with the first nursery day. Your DD will be fine. She'll make you feel very guilty by leaving her (possibly crying-one or both of you :)) but once you can't see her she be a happy as Larry I'm sure.

Hi Tiggeroo, Jack and anyone else there.

Hi Jem1978 and all

How is everyone.  Just reading your posts.

Wanted to stay in touch, and keep up with your news. No news my end, am waiting for AF to start, its a little late, but am not getting hopes up and being depressed staring at a blank pregnancy test screen wondering if my eyes are playing tricks on me.   The lady at the till when I went shopping gave me a coupon for 50p off Always Ultra sanitory towels.  It could have been anything, why sanitory towels!!!!!??
My DH has told me he will guve up smoking after I have endlessly nagged him to stop, and explained how bad it has been for me with all these drugs, does anyone else have a hubbie who smokes?  It drives me mad, he doesnt smoke a lot but he knows how bad it is for his health and other things!!
Anyway hope this year brings us bumps and morning sickness  ;D, (apparently morning sickness is a sign of a healthy pregnancy) not sure if that is an old wive's tale. Anyway, do hope this year brings happiness to all.

Hello!

I've finally wrestled MY iPad off dh so I can have a write on here :) hope you've all had lovely weekends.

Darls - your holiday sounds lovely, it must be hard being so far away from family. Ours are two hours away and I would love to live nearer but it's just not possible. I've just seen your signature and realised my dd is ten days older than yours! Let's hope their siblings are the same ;)

Jack - has af started? I've now got a supply of tests to bring it on, I found if I did a test af would appear within four hours. My hubby doesn't smoke, except for the very occasional cigar, but he does have at least one drink every night which drives me crazy. He's stopped this since new year and has only had one at the weekend, I'm very proud of him. It's fantastic that your hubby has said he'll give up smoking I can imagine that's far harder than booze. How's he getting on?

Jem - your hubby sounds very talented redoing your pc. Mine can turn it off and on again if anything goes wrong and that's about it. Very sweet you are getting the questions about the baby in your tummy :)

Hello everyone else ^hugme^ tiggeroo - thank you for the positive vibes you sent me

My back is better thank goodness. I had a bad day yesterday, I've had two weeks of trauma trying to get dd a pinafore as she now needs a uniform as she's moved class and it all came to a head with wrong colours being sent to John Lewis an order I'd put in at next not arriving and I was stewing as I found out that someone who was more junior than me at work, had been promoted above me, this is the second time this has happened due to me being off and on my 11th line manager in 4 years. I got home after being out all morning not having accomplished much and just cried and cried on dh. Feel much better today :)

Darls how did your dd get on at nursery? Hope it went well for both of you.

So I pick up the drugs on Tuesday can't quite believe it. I'm just going to focus on trying to be a bit more healthy can't face putting on too much weight again with the awful gonal f.

Hope everyone has good weeks - I'll let you know when the injections are due to start again

Good luck Lily.

Hi everyone else.
Well I'm having a real wobble today and not sure I want to do this (go for ICSI). I think it's because I have the normal pre-AF discharge (sorry TMI), but now I know we have no other road and I'm scared to death. What if it doesn't work etc etc. I'm sure everyone has been there.

What's worse is I sent the clinic a whole batch of questions yesterday (about drugs etc etc) and have had no reply yet. I know I'm one in loads of people, but I'm worried that they won't do things when they need to and it will all go wrong. We are going to a satellite clinic for the bloods and scans, and they just tell us when we need to turn up at the Lister for EC and ET.

The last email exchange I'd had with them was 'give us a call on the first day of your period', but then what? Don't you start drugs on the first day of your period?

I'm sorry for the me rant. I probably don't even make much sense, but thanks for reading if you've got this far.
