Sorry to be so behind with messages to everyone - I do read every day, but just so busy at school (expecting Ofsted any day!?) that I just don't get time to reply as fully as I would like. Wanted you all to know that I am still here and keeping up with all of your journeys.
Berry - so excited that you are nearly there and that you have held out - way stronger than I have ever been!!! Fingers well and truly crossed for you! xx
Jen - congrats on being PUPO - glad you are (almost!) on your way home and best of luck for the 2ww. Fingers crossed, as always.
Siob - nice to have you on here, it's lovely to see a couple going through this together :-) I don't think I could get DH on here if I paid him! Very refreshing. Thanks to you both for all the useful and insightful info you post. I'm so sorry you didn't get a BFP this time, but I am so impressed with your positivity and think that the Serum trip will really help - it certainly can't do any harm can it. Hi to Andy.
Kaybee - Congrats on almost being at 12 weeks, I bet you just can't wait. Not that the worry will stop there, but personally, I have always dreamed about the day I hit 12 weeks and become a 'normal' pregnant person, rather than always being attached to fertility treatment. I know not everyone will feel like this, but it's very personal to me and always the part that I have been aiming to get to!! Not that I'm saying we're not 'normal' until then - hopefully everyone gets what I mean! :-)
KFC - best of luck for your trip - I hope it all goes smoothly and is plain sailing with a big fat BFP at the end. I have never had a hysteroscopy and am also beginning to wonder if going to get one done might have been a good idea - but too late now I think for me, so we'll just have to plough on, put it out of our minds and hope for the best.
PeaPea - I am sorry you are feeling so rubbish on Yasmin. I am on it now too and have been previous to ttc and never had any problems with it. Funny isn't it how people react differently. Have you spoken to your GP? Perhaps you could change pill for a different one, there can't be much difference between them? When are you going back out to Dogus?
Zedbee - HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I am glad everything has gone well for you - you did so well getting those embies :-) Enjoy (if it's possible) the last few days before OTD. Fingers, toes and everything crossed for good news. Any advice you have for those of us about to go is gratefully received.
SNZK - best of luck for your trip. Keep us updated on everything that happens and also on the weather! Here's for some sunshine for us all!
Welcome Travelinsal and Celadon! It's a great and very busy thread and the ladies (and gents) have always been able to answer all my queries - I think we're the experts really :-)
Cypurs - nice to hear from you again and to have you back. x
Blondie - I was sooooo soooo sorry to hear of your BFN, it's just frustrating isn't it :-( If you don't mind me asking - did AF arrive before OTD? I have never got to OTD before in 4 rounds of IVF so was thinking that if I ever get to OTD it must mean it's worked, but now thinking that a lot of ppl on here don't seem to mention AF starting/spotting etc... but then go on to have a BFN on OTD - just want to prepare myself if this is the case. I'm really glad you're being positive and looking forward. Hard to do, I know. xx
Alicia - when are you going to be at Dogus? We will be there on April 4th - perhaps we'll see you?
Meemee - best of luck for June - hope you stay on the thread until then.
Tarn - looking forward to some lovely good news - hope you are keeping well and the horrible uti is on it's way out, they are so awful at the best of times, you poor thing! :-( xx
Linlou and Nekosimum - how are things? Haven't heard from you in a little while. Hope all is good.
As for us.... I am now on my second pack of Yasmin, Gonapeptyl going in on March 13th and countdown from there really - flying out on 3rd for transfer on 4th. Drugs are here and books and films are bought ready. Haven't had much contact with Julie, trying hard to focus on other things and not think too hard about it all!!?! I have booked a private scan at Liverpool Women's for day 10 to check lining - have to pay £150 - not sure if this is good? Bupa quoted me £271!!!! What't everyone else's experiences of this? It's my brother's wedding next Sat and then I've got a weekend away with a friend, a weekend with our respite child and then 1 free weekend before Cyprus so keeping busy and trying to stay positive without picking baby names and colours for the nursery :-) I asked Blondie a very personal question above and wondered if anyone else had experience of this? It's the main thing on my mind at the moment and would hate to set myself up for a horrible shock! Any advice much appreciated!
Sorry for the world's longest post - I hope I didn't miss anyone, but if I did "Hi"! I hope you are all enjoying your weekends and this relatively sunny weather.
