Hello All.
well the hospital phoned us this morning to tell us they were taking our 5 embies out today for defrost.They said they would phone us up later this morning if there was any problems with the defrost.Well they didn`t phone back so, hopefully that means they chilled out out ok ^afro^ well i hope so.They also said they will phone us tomorrow morning to tell us how the defrosting went and to tell us what time to come in for et.Well after that it will be the dreaded two week wait we really hope it works,

Paula thanks for your reply.How is your tx going hope its going alright and everything is alright.Let us know how its going.

Hello Paula,
thanks for your messsage.Well we went the hospital yesterday for et.We had 5 embies,3 survived the defrost. they put two back in one was a 2 cell and the other was a 4 cell .the 3rd one they are trying to get to a further stage to try and refreeze it.They will let us know in a few days.Well The et went well apart from they struggled a bit getting the catheter in.jane was bursting with a full bladder and the nurses were trying to make jane laugh,which made jane worse.she thought  she was going to wee herself ;D ;D.One of the nurses said to jane if you did wee your self the speculum would shoot out hit the nurse on the forehead and you would end up weeing on the nurses lap  ;D ;D very funny.the nurseswere brilliant after et,they let jane stay on the  bed for ages afterwards and explained the doos` and donts of the two week wait.Well Thats were we are now the dreaded 2 wk wait.I really hope this time its our turn.Ill let you know how it going.Hope you downregging is going ok all the best for your baseline on tuesday hope it goes well and you can start your stimming. Jane and I wish you all the best for  tuesday  ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Hiya Paula,

sorry about your delay,at least the downregging has worked. ^reiki^ well were just trying to get through the 2wk wait,jane has been getting a bit of tummy ache and feeling dizzy? dont know what that means as we didnt have any drugs this time.Et was 4 days ago so i dont know if its to early for implantation to start? Its all different this time as this is our fet,so we dont really know what is happening.Well we will keep you informed on what happens,hope everything goes well for you were thinking about you.

All the best and good luck.

Carl & Jane

Hi Carl Jayne and Paula,

firstly sorry it took me so long to find this thread, I've been crazy busy this last couple of weeks installing 9 kitchens in 9 days (got another week of mayhem to follow too!) but I'm here now huh!!

Can't believe you're back on the 2ww Carl & Jayne, how quick has the time flown by this year? WOW!! Well, now I've found you you can bank on all the  ^reiki^^fairydust^ in the world coming your way. Angie and I truly hope that this, your first fet, is the tx that works for you and you'll soon be in the 'family way'. Praying for you!!

Paula... hiya, really sorry to hear you've been put back a while with your treatment, but as Carl says, the downregging's worked and that's always positive! Hope all goes well for you!

Things with us are crazy mad as you can imagine. Not gonna throw all things baby at you on this thread as I know what it's like to be where you are right now and sometimes it just doesn't help. Would love you to know that I felt my young man (yes we found out the sex a couple weeks ago) kick for the first time last night.... better feeling than I ever imagined!! Booked a 4d scan for May so looking forward to that and all else is going well (apart from Angie's hormones which are absolutely all over the place! ah well..... that doesn't change from the tx then does it  ;) ).

Looking forward to hearing from you..... what's your test date Carl? Let me know so I can diarize it.

Take care,

Catch

Hey Catch,
Nice hearing from you its been a while.The year is flying by bud.looks like you will be fed up of kitchens soon  ;D hey mate at least you will have your young man to help you in a few years. i bet you was buzzing when you felt the kick, i would of been. im pleased for you and ange that everything seems ok.Well mate our test date is friday,we really hope this time is our turn,after all the pain jane has been through the last time.Jane has been having af type cramps on and off ever since et and feeling sick,she says she normally gets these feelings when she is due,but she has been feeling dizzy alot and she says she never gets dizzy when she is due so we dont know what to think? Its stange this time with it being fet, as jane hasnt had any drugs so we cant put the cramps and aches and pains down to that.We feel really positive this time jane says she feels different this  time, fingers crossed it will work.Like i said we test the 18th so not long to go, really nervous but being ^reiki^ thats the only thing we can be.Its Janes birthday today and we hope we get a belated present on friday,to use a well known saying that would be the icing on the cake ;D ill let you know bud when we have some news. Good luck to you both in may on your scan that should be amazing tet us know how it goes mate.Well mate best get back on the 2wk wait ride when its  finished ill let you know.Keep sending all the dust and vibes mate really appreciate them.

spk to you soon bud

all the best

Hi Peeps....

Paula.... going far too quickly for us, and yet not fast enough if you know what I mean? Still planning on Crannage but will depend on work now, I never know where I am, for example this week I should have had 4 more kitchens at one of my regular sites but found out Friday they're not being delivered until Friday coming. Great that I get 2 or 3 days off this week, but messes up the following weeks work which now has 8 kitchens booked. Hence I sometimes will have to pull in weekends to meet sign off deadlines, just hoping that doesn't happen around April 1st! Any news yet on the tx date?

Carl... sounds like you're in a much more positive mood than in December and that really is a great thing. I truly hope that this is the one for you this time my friend. It's really hard to see friends you've made going through the pains we've all felt and it's such a wonderful feeling when it works for them. As always mate there's truck loads of  ^reiki^^fairydust^ and an extra special prayer for you and Jane this week. Will be thinking of you on Friday and looking forward to seeing that  ^BFP^ banner being posted in here.
Can't wait till I've got my own little apprentice kitchen fitter, but then, I hope to not be doing this for more than a couple more months as I'm working on a project which will keep me working from home perminently!!! (God that would be so good!)

As always...

Catch

Hi Peeps,

Firstly... I love your omen Pauls. Truly hopes this is the one for you and that New Years Eve has an extra special reason to celebrate 2005!!!!
As Carl says keep us posted on your progress.
Sorry Jane, failed to pick up it was your birthday and send belated congrats.... so here they are...... ^birthday^

Angie's doing great, we just went and found a decent outfit for her to wear to a meal we're going to on Saturday (at last - after trawling around Meadowhall with no luck all day Saturday!!). She's really growing now (see piccie I posted in 2nd tri board!) and glowing too! (Just cost me £10 for some stretch mark preventing oil though so watch out for that one Carl!!)

No big secret on the new project really........... but I'm not gonna tell you just yet!!!  ^evil^ ^evil^ ^evil^ ^evil^ ^evil^ ^evil^ ^evil^ ^evil^ ^evil^

Just want to get myself up and running before I let the cat out of the bag... we're a superstitious lot here in Derbyshire!!  ;D

Anyhoo..... speak to you later in the week.... hang on in there Carl & Jane, not long to hold out now!!

^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^fairydust^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

As always...

I was really gutted it did not work. Like i said were going to have a little break from it all,and then come back strong for our next try. Jane needs to have a break from the treatment and our heads need a break.so were going to have a few months off we will still keep coming on ff to speak to everyone as you have all been here for us and we really appreciate all what you have  said to help us through. so good luck to everyone and all the best

Thanks everyone

Hello ladies

Life can be so cruel and unfair this has certainly been a bumpy ride for are 1st time at IVF. its been a long time since we started are 1st cycle back in Feb only to suffer a set back with OHSS after EC and having to freeze are embryos to use at a later date  :( .... and now having a negative makes me soooo sad , angry ,frustrated that my BODY has failed me we cant even have another go at FET as all are embryos didn't survive the thaw except the 2 little darlings we had on board and i couldn't keep them :'(.... what i think is the cruelset thing of all is  ^witch^ has not showed up at all in the 2ww and still get a  ^BFN^ ...but I'm not given up theres allways a next time and maybe it will be the right time :(

very sad Lisa n x

Hi,

I'm new to this board, but have been lurking and reading other peoples posts over the past year or so.

My dh is 49 and I'm 33.  My husband has a very low count and we've been ttc for about 3.5 years now and had our first unsuccessful ICSI treatment in May/June '05.  All went well and all 8 embies fertilized but they just didn't hang around unfortunately.  We have 3 frozen embies waiting and we're having a natural FET in my September cycle.

I've read lots on this subject, but wondered if anyone had any advice on how to make it as successful as possible.  I've heard that taking a childs dose of aspirin helps the embies embed easier, but not sure how far in advance I should take it.  I've also heard that acupuncture helps, I really believe in this but wondered if anyone had any recommendations of particular people who specialise in this area of fertility - I'm in the Buckinghamshire/Bedfordshire area.

Many thanks,
charli brown
