    tor.t - i tested 10 days after a day 2 transfer and got a bfp. My test date was 16 days after transfer but i couldn't wait that long!! I tested about 8 days after transfer to make sure the hcg trigger shot was out of my system (got a bfn, so it was), that way i knew that if i tested early and it was a bfp then it really was one!
    Best of luck,
    Lisa x

    HELLOOOO!  Newbies to the site here!  :)  We're just starting out on the exciting route of trying to be parents...we've been referred to the local hospital (James Cook Uni Hospital in Middlesbrough), we're trying the NHS route after hearing about several local couple being successful, so fingers crossed!
    We did think about the Darlington LWC and that remains our back-up plan.  Looking forward to chatting/meeting up with others in similar situations  ;)

    Hi Lisa and Rachel

    We are new to this site too. We are going through the LWC Darlington, and are having our first IUI tomorrow.

    We have thought about going through NHS, but my g/f is in her mid 30's and were worried that the longer we have to wait, the less chance she'll have of conceiving.

    Since our first appointment at the clinic, it has taken about 6 weeks to get to the point of having out first treatment. We were notified of a possible donor match on the same day of our initial consultation.

    I can't believe that the process has gone by so quickly...the only down side is that we've now got to pay the bill!!

    Hope all goes well for you both

    Thanks for the warm welcome guys  :)

    Maybe they won't help us at James Cook but we reckoned it was worth a shot since others have been successful!

    Em, we're still getting to grips with the terminology so we may as a few questions here and there - LOL! Sounds like things are really moving for you though which is so exciting!

    6 weeks, HotC?? OMG! That is fab! It's the waiting that will kill us I'm sure but it'll be worth it however it happens  :)

    Winny- the slang takes a bit of getting used to but its easy to pick up.. We didnt even take 6 weeks to get started our intitial consultation was 17th sept and our cycle starts hopefully 27th sept if AF (Period) plays ball!
