Thanks Kjade - I am really mad, one sniff of my ovaries aging due to these delays and I am going to get all legal on them!

Apparently the panel sit on 9th June, which should be around about day 2/3 of my next cycle. I have asked them to be specific as to  when I can expect a decision, so just waiting for a response. I have also asked if the decision can be communicated to me and clinic via telephone or email to speed things up. Earliest we will be on is the cycle after that which is late June/early July. I reckon - and thats assuming that all goes to plan and NHS act quickly when writing up notes etc. Hahahahaha excuse me whilst I fall off my chair laughing at the irony of that last sentence.

Wouldn't it be weird Kjade if we ended up cycling again together after all the stress and miscommunications we have both had!?

    MrsE - I am so sorry, that is soooooo frustrating!!

    KJade - your autocorrect story made me laugh

    Sapphire- we also have not told most people. We have shared this with both our parents and my closest friend. We will tell our siblings and closest friends once we are pregnant. I wish I felt more comfortable about telling everyone, but my mother's side of the family love family gossip, and we do not want to be the centre of it... So we will just be selective who we tell. I don't know if this is right or wrong, but oh well.

    Beattie- when is your testing date? Thinking of you!

    Godiva - I am encouraged to hear all your responses have been positive :) how many weeks are you now?

    Sorry if I have missed anyone

    AFM I am on day 24 of my cycle so I expect AF will arrive on Monday... Which means my first ultrasound/bloodwork will be Tuesday and I should start stims on Wednesday. I am grateful to be working tomorrow and then have my parents visiting for the weekend. I definitely want to keep busy for the rest of my cycle!
    Hope you have a good Friday! Xo

    ooh exciting Amanda - what I wouldn't give to be starting soon! You are right keep busy and distracted as best you can!

    I still have no idea if I can have IUI or not. I can't worry about it any more. We are now approaching the anniversary of the 0 sperm analysis result so for my own sanity I simply can't worry about it. The frustration disappointment and downright outrage is not healthy. We just have to enjoy life and each other as best we can.

    Our baby will turn up when its the right time. Whether that right time is delayed by the NHS red tape or not.

    Sending out lots of zen vibes to you all ladies this weekend!

    Hope you get your answer soon (or your AF waits a bit longer) Mrs E...

    Amanda: fingers crossed AF does not let you down!

    I had my 12 w scan today: everything looking fine. According to my (internet) calculations I should be 12+1 today, but I have been promoted to 12+6 based on US (baby looked more like 13 weeks). Strange they change my EDD, when I am absolutely sure of term... Oh well, will discuss with obstetrician. After talking to a couple of obstetricians today decided to go for the NIPT (like harmony in UK), both said straight away that if they were me they would do it. Results in about 2 weeks, but DH can not wait to know sex (still not sure if I want to know...). Good news: weaning off progesteron pessaries can start, last one on Monday :-D. (DH is very happy about that too, as am I)

    MrsE I'm so sorry. I know how u feel though. Today I have really felt at a loss with it all and tempted to throw the towel in completely  but of course I won't
    It really feel so like obstacle after obstacle, I guess u just keep Chipping away until something gives. If I'm meant to be one of those women who has to try for 20years plus so be it

    We are considering going to xytex directly now and paying them ourselves to get things moving quicker. But how do I go about this? Also how much money? It would be for 1 Iui. Anyone know?? Is it complicated?

    Godiva I'm glad scan went well x

    Godiva - congrats on reaching the 12 wk milestone.  So glad your scan went well :) can I ask why you're doing the Harmony test? Did the scan suggest you had risk factors or do you want to do the test just to be sure things are all ok?

    KJade - I looked into using XYtex and it looked quite straightforward.  You should be able to ship direct to your clinic assuming your clinic are on their books.  They re very helpful if you want to contact them direct with questions:

    MrsE - sending hugs - you will get there.  I think you're right, just got to try and enjoy life as much as possible whilst you wait.  I'm so sorry you're having such a frustrating time on the NHS.

    Canadian - best of luck for your forthcoming cycle xx

    Sapphire: at first I thought I would not do the test, but my Belgian fert specialist seemed to think it a good idea. I was not completely convinced so asked the opinion of 2 OB's yesterday, and both asked my age (34, 35th birthday in 2 months): 35 is considered as starting to get into a slightly higher risk categorie. Both replied: "Weeeell, it might not be a bad idea. And it is always better to know there is a problem in first trimester than after 20 weeks..." Apparently ultrasound (and triple test) miss quite a few problems. As I was expecting a "nah, don't bother", or at least a "wait until you have had the scan" answer I decided to go straight for the NIPT (even though scan was fine).
    Yesterday evening, after having seen the scan, DH spent quite some time talking and singing to belly :-). He thinks we should find a lullaby to sing already now, to calm baby afterwards, as it will be soothed by a familiar melody... He is so lovely about whole thing!
