Woohoo Amanda! So happy for you! You had just one embryo put back I presume? (can't remember)

MrsE: thx for the link, have not got round to listening yet, but definitely hope I do so before it goes off line!

    Woohoo - Amanda so pleased with your scan....must have been amazing!

    Thanks for your note Triona....gives us all faith!

    DRUM ROLL PLEASE.....after a lot of faffing about AF has finally showed up today! I spotted yesterday afternoon a tiny tiny bit....so I held off calling clinic and telling BIL - I AM FINALLY ON DAY 1!!!!! Despite me sorting work out for this week, next and the week after it looks as if I'll be filtering over into the week after that for embryo transfer....hey well work will just have to deal with it.

    Now of course I going to have the world's most textbook ICSI cycle and it will ALL go to plan!!

    I'm going to be talking to my ovaries and telling myself that I deserve a baby over and over again. Just like the CD says Kjade!

    My best mate had her 2nd baby on Tuesday - she put a photo on social media of her, her 2 year old and the new little one all cuddling and I sobbed my heart out. I text her and told her that it made me cry....and she offered to take it down, bless her. It was just such a lovely picture. She knows the entire story and has text me a couple of times wanting to know when I start injections.....despite just having given birth herself! I might not be able to have exactly the same picture as may only get 1...but I'm feeling positive!

    absolutley brilliant!
    i bet you cannot wait to tell familiy. they will be thrilled for you!!!


    Triona HELLO ^wave^ ^wave^
    Lovely to hear your news, you had a rough ride i remember. i bet your boys are georgous !

    MrsE yay for AF! Time to get this show on the road.
    i get so jealous of people when they have 2 kids tbh.
    mainly cause i want 2. and right now its a mission getting one... >:(. but i sooo want 2. one of each.  :)

    i didnt book the masage ladies but i will do. hopefully for next week when im off work . i havent had a good couple of days. been getting 5 hours sleep at best. maybe im just not tired enough..but i just feel so anxious all of the time. its a weired feeling, almost like my blood is 'fizzing' if that makes sense
    im off work next week and then taking 2 more days the following week , but im sort of debating maybe getting a sick note and having some time off completely.
    just not sure...
    just wish i could find away to shut my mind off . hot baths really help, but you cant do them on 2ww so ill have to think of something else...

    dh has booked for us to go away for a couple of nights over the weekend so hopefull thatll help
    im just to worried about the effect all this is having on my body. and then that makes me more worried. and makes it worse. aarrggghhhhhh

    Ahh hugs kjade...the mind whirs..its a right pain. I tried the relaxation CD again last night and was properly zoned out....can you give that a go when you feel like your blood is about to fizz up. Hopefully the week off work will see you right and you can take some time out....I suggest you have a sofa day...and watch all the stuff your other half hates. whilst eating chocolate.

    Or if the weather is nice (here's hoping - it is July!) get out for a walk, the hardest bit is stepping foot out of the front door...but stick your iPod in with your most feel good songs and get some vitamin D. It might help you feel more tired too - therefore less time for your mind to play over and over again with the what ifs, and the anxiety.

    When we went away just at the start of our 'delay' I promised myself I wouldn't talk to DH about TTC and Infertility and we had a lovely time...yes the thoughts are still there in the back of my mind, but it does give you a boost of confidence to realise that you still have a lovely relationship behind all of the infertility. Just a thought and might work for you? I hope so - you deserve some peace poor thing!

    AF certainly came with a bang - its the heaviest I have had in a while! Constantly up and down in the night changing! Careful what you wish for hey ladies?!
    First injection of Menopur tonight and scanning appointment booked for Weds next week. Getting real now!

    thanks MrsE. last night wasn't great either tbh. I find myself worrying  over the tinniest of things. like I bet work wont give me the time off for IUI. even though ive already spoken with HR and they have been supportive. just always fretting over nothing really.
    yes I really think the week off will set me right.
    I AM getting that massage. and your right lots of chocolate. I did try a walk the other day with I pod. it defiantly helped.



    omg that play had me balling by the end  :'(
    was actually quite good for emotional release.
    thing is people will now see that couple walking down the street with their LO and have no idea what they've had to go through to become parents. other passers by  in the same position may even scowl at them -damm fertiles with with their kid why's it so easy for them lol !! ;D

    I always wander just how many of us are how their living with these hidden stories , I mean if azoo is 1% of all men then there's probably someone on the same street living with it.
    both our next door neighbours and neighbours living at the end of our very small cul de sac  have non ID twins. so go figure. ..


    exciting for Wednesday. lets hope you have loads of juicy follies!!

    I was literally just typing a post complaining about how my Cryos delivery for home insem just turned up; not in the large tank I paid for but in a standard size one (which might last until I ovulate... or might not) but bless them, they rang me up the instant I emailed them and are sending a backup tank out to me.

    Slightly bemused that the DHL driver just totally decided to go with a whole "So, what are you planning on doing with this TANK OF SPERM?!?!!!!!!!" thing on the doorstep. I don't mind too much that Staples (where I usually drop the tank back for return) have clearly googled it, but it's a bit offputting in full view of all my neighbours!

    MrsE I am SO glad AF finally showed up, and even more happy to read that you are starting into treatment!!! It feels like this has been such a long time coming, finally you can get this show on the road :) woo hoo!!

    KJade - glad to hear you are gong for a massage, the worries that come up in all this are so overwhelming, I hope you have a relaxing weekend.

    Persipan - I am both shocked and offended for you that the driver was so nosy! It is none of his bloody business what your package was for. It sounds like you took it better than I would have, I probably would have straight out put him in his place and reported his inappropriate behaviour.

    AFM- thanks for the support girls! I have been trying to recover from a nasty head cold, and tonight started to feel much better. I am supposed to run a 5km race tomorrow, but will just see how I am feeling in the morning... It may be a run/walk combo.

    Hope you all had a lovely weekend ladies.

    Beattie - I would ask about the long term plan for you. And how long you need to go on with IUI before moving on. Having that in my head made (even though we didn't get to the 3 IUIs) made me feel as if there was a plan in place!

    Persipan - how odd, that the delivery driver said something...what does he think your going to do with sperm?!? Surely its one of those polite things that people notice yet never comment on?

    Menopur injections have gone well so far, I have done 3....and I am having the following symptoms

    Headache, about 30 mins after injection
    Hot flushes
    Tiredness/feeling rough in the afternoon/evening - a bit like I've been for a good night out the night before. The sort of feeling that I need to sleep and eat a dirty burger feeling.
    Bloatedness (not sure about this one though - i might just have had too much to eat!)

    Tonight is the last night for just one injection and then we move onto 2 per night - woo hoo!

    MIL classic coming up....

    So yesterday we had tennis and afternoon tea at our house, as I thought it would be quite a nice way to socialise without drinking. So had family and a few friends over....inc in laws who arrived with some long lost aunty who'd just arrived from Canada. Needless to say the audience was mixed, some knew intimate details of our treatment (BIL for example - our donor) and some know nothing (mate - who's biggest gossip every and manages to turn every crisis into something about her!)
    I had specifically told DH to talk to his Mum and tell her in no uncertain terms that our treatment was not for discussion with this long lost Canadian Aunt, as she is staying with them, and that it is private......he says he hasn't had 'time' to talk to her.....!

    Anyway as she was leaving (in front of everyone)  a big loud....'when do you finish these injections then?'  - What the actual F..... I give up.

    DH is now thinking every time I have a moan at him - its not 'real' its because of the hormones.....so I'm stuck!!!! Was talking to SIL about it (she had numerous IVF cycles years ago) and apparently she never said a word to her....so maybe I have invited this sort of discussion I don't know!? Apparently one of the neighbours did ask her 'how the IVF was going?' as MIL had told her about it in Tescos!

    I give up - bigger things to worry about - like growing lots of eggs!

    Thats the problem Beattie - she's not awful - she's lovely...and only means well and would give her right arm for it all to work.....She just has zero tact and diplomacy and empathy......I'm going to just keep calm and breathe through it.....and then tell DH to sort it out!!!
