Hello everyone,

Currently on 4dpt and feeling a bit stressed today. Been off work and taking it easy at home but getting a bit bored now. Thinking should just go out for a walk or do something. So far today i have sat on the sofa, done some knitting, hung washing out, and sat on sofa some more! Is it good to rest or should i be out and about now? Trouble is i'm technically off work sick, so can't get out and about too much.

Anyone got any advice or tips on not going totally insane? Been getting cramps on and off since transfer but nothing else as i have on all my cycles. I hate this point in the 2ww because i can't help but think that either the embryo/s will have implanted by now or not and it could all be over now anyway - wish we could know.

Hope everyone else okay?

    I've missed a few days where I have been feeling sorry for myself, so I will try my best to catch up.

    Thank you for all your kind words and hugs.  It's awful that we feel like this but it does help to know you're not the only one feeling it, I knew you ladies would understand x

    Summer - congratulations on being PUPO  :)  How are you feeling?  No tips or advice to stop the insanity, I'm afraid that's what happens in the 2ww  :) 

    Macamoo - Hello  :) Good luck to you.  Not familiar with the meds you are on but completely get the emotional wreck, hope you are feeling better now.
    Queenie7 - Hello  :) 21 Frosties! wow!!  Very best of luck to you.  Is it this monday you go back for your scan?
    Star17 - Hello  :) So sorry to hear about your miscarriage, that's heartbreaking  ^hugme^  Wishing you lots of luck for this cycle xx
    Midlands Lass - I hope the job interview went well on Wednesday?
    Hope - Is it transfer day today?  Praying it all goes well for you  ^pray^ xx
    Floss - Did you go again on Monday for another scan?  How is your lining doing?  I'm back again tomorrow to see if mine is any better, it was only 6.6 after 16 days dr.

    Sorry if I have missed anyone
    Good luck to you all xx

    I just lost a big long reply - aggggh!

    Summer13 - I've no tips beyond trying to keep busy - no powerlifting obviously, but general activity is fine I'm sure.  Glad your transfer went well.

    KHH - I hope things are good at your scan tomorrow - are you on oestrogen at the moment?  That should be helping build up your lining or are you still down regging to thin your lining, sorry not sure.  I hear you on the everyone else being pregnant - I know that whilst you are happy for them, you are jealous & sad for yourself. The viagra I am on seems to have helped with the lining - need to go & get some more as have to stay on it till day before transfer.

    As to other people getting pg & bringing home babies, my BIL's wife has had 4 babies since we've been TTC - so close to home, sods law that I have to be related by marriage to the most fertile woman in Ireland!  Whilst I know she is nearly 10 years younger than me, it's a headwreck each time I hear an announcement!

    KHH, Thanks for asking, scan actually went well on monday ( I was away with work so didn't get to posting), lining had thickened up to 10mm & looked much better, not triple lined but even along the length of uterus.  So my bloods showed a LH surge on tuesday & I am absolutely sure I OVd on tuesday evening, clinic rang to say am good to go for next tuesday, however I have an issue with the timing of the FET as that will be almost 7 full days post OV for putting back day 3 embies.  It doesn't seem right, I've queried it with the nurse I spoke to & she assures me it's fine, but I dunno doesn't feel right to me at all. Think am going to email the dr as I have to know this is being done right, my embies are so precious & hard got that to mis-time the transfer would, I think, kill me.

    Hi to everyone else, hope you are all getting on ok.

    Floss - great news from your scan, 10mm sounds excellent.  I'm afraid I really don't know enough about the process to know whether 7 days after ovulation is right or wrong.  I'm sure it will be absolutely fine and they wouldn't do it if it wasn't, but I do think you should email the dr too, just to give you some peace of mind.

    I'm taking 4 progynova a day along with daily suprecur/buserelin - the clinic have not suggested anything else yet.  ( I thought the suprecur was the down regging, have I got that wrong? )  I'm really not very knowledgable about all of this, I just do what the clinic tell me to do  ^idiot^

    My brother in law and his wife also have 4 children!  Each time they have decided to try for another it happens instantly  >:(  Two of them have been born since we've been trying, the youngest was due the same date as ours would have been  :(  I think they've stopped for the time being so hopefully no more announcements from them.

    Hi everyone,

    Don't know why i'm writing this on here but i've just watched a film called 'The Decendants' - big mistake - have been in tears! I cry at 'Neighbours' at the best of times, so what with all the hormones! - what was i thinking. Time to take the dog down the road and get some fresh air i think!

    Oh Summer, hope the walk helped and am sure the dog was delighted.

    KHH, I got response from dr, good job I checked as I was right ( as usual ;-)), so we are going on Sunday instead, that's great as DH will be with me.

    Hello ladies,

    Sorry has been a while! I am so sorryto hear some of u r are havibng a hard time. I have too and not in work the rest of the week.

    KKH i completely understand how upset u were the other day. My sister and 2 sis-in laws and about 14 friends have had babies after we were even trying. Some, inclg my sis-in-law are on second and we were trying before they got pregnant with their first. It is so hard and v difficult when u are put in a surprise situation like u were and u have to out on a brave face.

    Rest assured u r not alone, its ok to feel how u have been.

    Ive got 3 days till test - arghhh!

    Positive vibes 2 u all

    Xx

    Floss - Good job you checked, that's really alarming that the nurse told you it was ok - I would have just blindly believed that they knew what they were doing. I think I might have to double check all my treatment with you from now on.  Great news that transfer will be on Sunday xx

    Angel - How are you coping?  You said you were not in work and having a hard time, I'm sorry to hear that  ^hugme^
    Is OTD Sunday or Monday?  ^reiki^ ^reiki^

    Summer - How are you today?  When is your OTD?  I've not seen the Decendants, but it sounds like one to avoid whilst we're emotional wrecks x

    AFM The clinic have stopped my treatment as this mornings scan showed my lining is not thickening, it's actually reduced back to 4mm (where does it go?)  They think my cyst is taking all the oestrogen (does that sound right) and it's now nearly 6 cm.  I'm surprised I can't feel it.  They will have a meeting on Wednesday and review my treatment and then let me know what happens next.  So, I wait another week.  Does anyone else feel like they live their life on a week to week basis, I feel unable to make plans or think ahead until I know the result of each weeks appointment - it's exhausting  :'(

    KKH - Oh you poor pet, it's so disappointing to have your cycle cancelled, we had the same twice and it is hard to keep going.  But you know that this is for the right reasons as you can't risk your embies, so it's better to sort this out and wait for the next cycle - as much as it is frustrating.  I haven't had a situation with a cyst (amazingly as everything else seems to happen), but I believe that they are pretty straightforward to drain if they don't shrink by themselves.  As to lining I find it amazing, I had a D&C 18 months ago (which I thought would remove all the lining), had pretty much stopped bleeding after it & then I got my period as per my cycle - thought I was starting to heamorage (sp!), but it was my period - bizarre - so God knows how it works!

    As to querying my treatment I suppose after our cycle being cancelled twice, last month due to not being able to pinpoint OV, I had done a lot of research on Dr Google, so knew that the timing of putting back the embies on a natural cycle was very important due to changes to the lining occuring after OV, that's the only reason I knew to ask really, thankfully I did. I presume someone in the clinci will get their ^Booty^ kicked - which is good, but the nurse did check with a doctor & come back to me, so I could well have accepted her as being correct.  On a medicated cycle it's not an issue as there is no OV to contend with causing hormonal changes.  Right better get on, take care

Left nipple tender (?!) , had 10 secs of nausea on 2 occasions - waking DH at 5am to tell him, and a bit dizzy but sometimes get low blood pressure so cud b that. Oh and i cant believebi 4got to take my cyclogest this morning! Called clinic in panic but is ok to miss will just do pm one - phew!

    Floss good on u for challenging and hope next stage goes smoothly.

    Summer - def avoiding that film! Everything i watch or rrread ends up baby related!

    Big hugs to all and carry on being brave xx
