Helly & Sarah  ^Cuddle^ so sorry xx

I haven't posted for a while coz I'm still waiting to start.  I had my HSG last thursday which was an experience I would like to repeat but the consultant told me my tubes are clear which is great news.  I'm still waiting for the official report to be sent to our fertility consultant but we are carrying on preparing for TX on my next cycle.  I had the CMV blood test on Wednesday and we spoke to the embryologist.  Our clinic only have 2 sperm donors which are imports from USA and we were told that once these stocks are gone they don't know where they will get anymore.  They're not a perfect match but I guess the way things are we're lucky to have any kind of choice at all.  We have our meeting with the councellor next Saturday and the HSG and CMV results should be available by then too so we are about ready to start.  CD 1 should be next Saturday too but knowing me it will be late just because I'm waiting for it !  DH has been very positive which is great as originally he wasn't keen on the idea of using a donor so all is good with my world.  I can't believe how lucky we are to have sperm available so maybe it's fate who knows.

hope everyone else is doing OK.  Sorry for the me post.  I have to catch up with how everyone is doing
Take Care

Hello all,

Helly - I'm so sorry honey, am sending you big big  ^hugme^. Look after yourself. Thinking of you xxx

Hello to everyone else - please forgive me for not answering all your lovely messages, I will do I promise just not up to it right now.

We're still struggling with appointments and blood tests as my HCG levels are still rising. I had another scan on Wednesay and still there's nothing andno sign of an ectopic. I have now been referred to my GP (which in a way is a relief as I'm finding it too painful to keep going to my cilnic and although they have been wonderful the cost of the extra scan and bloods soon mounts up). I've been to the docs for another set of bloods this morning but seh did mention that there's a tiny chance it could be a molar pregnancy (where the placenta develops but not the baby) so if the levels are still rising today I'll probably have to have more tests next week and maybe a D&C. Needless to say we're finding all of this very hard but I know we will come through it and someway, somehow we will be a Mum and Dad one day.

Please fogive me for not posting personals, know I'm thinking of you all and sending all the  ^reiki^ in the world.

Stay strong my lovely, lovely friends.
I'll post again when we know what's happening but it might not be for a few days.
Lots of love &  :-* to all
Sarah
xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
p.s. Struthie honey, could you add another angels to my never forgotten angels please, I need to remember them both - this time was fresh so DICSI. Thank you honey xxxx

Sarah - I hope everything sorts out quickly. It must be hard enough without all this not knowing what is going on. ^hugme^

Helly - So sorry ^hugme^. I hope you do get another iui. It seems unfair that it counts when you didn't actually get to do the iui.

Ckbe  - How's it going? ^2ww^

Bronte and Suzi - Not long for you two now. ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Dannysgirl - I hope you can get started on your next cycle and that this will be the only one you need.

I've been injecting for a week now and it has been going ok. Unlike previous down reggs I seem to be getting some side effects - tiredness, feeling edgy and feeling very thirsty (I didn't know about the thirsty effect but I checked the leaflet and it says you sometimes get it). AF is due today but I've been told it is likely to be late. DH has been working away during the week for a while but is back today and doesn't have to go away again. We are having our postponed anniversary (it was actually last monday) this weekend.
Hello to everyone else - Ella, Sammn, Going it alone Sam, Sarahjj, Anne, Marie, Wolla, Tamsin , Struthie and anyone else.

Good evening

Helly I am so sorry, these are just for you:
^Cuddle^ ^Cuddle^ ^Cuddle^ ^Cuddle^ ^Cuddle^ ^Cuddle^ ^Cuddle^ ^Cuddle^ ^Cuddle^

Sarah, I hope your GP will be a good help and that you get explanations of what is hapening. And I hope that you will be fine.

Ckbe: how are you coping?

Samm, nice to see you are still here it is a reminder of positive examples and gives me hopes.

Colly, on the road cycling again, let it be the one.

Big hello to everyone else.

Steph and Suzi
Thanks for asking I'm fine thank you!
No more treatment for us,no money left,and now that we have stopped in a way its a relief,although we still would love another we have to be so grateful for the child we have.

I'm keeping busy,was asked to become a mod so any excuse to spend even more time on here!

I'm also going to slimming world and trying to lose the weight that I put on during treatment,I had lost 6 stone before we started but put 2 stone on and I felt awful,getting there now though.

Have been thinking about adoption but its still too early and as I have doubts I'm not going to persue it yet.

Its my birthday on Sunday and DH's on Monday so must get organised with presents for him!

Wishing you all lots of blue lines - good luck all xxx

Hello all,
Sorry I haven't been around much but DH took me to the Yorkshire Dales for the weekend as I was feeling a bit down after the BFN.  Anyway I am feeling MUCH better now (its amazing what a couple of glasses of wine and some TLC can do  ;D ) thank you all for your thoughts and good wishes, it really does help.  Anyway, I have been on to the clinic today and we can have another IUI after all so I am going tomorrow for a scan to see if we can go ahead this month (it would be day 6 so maybe a little too late but we'll see!)

So....I seem to missed quite a bit since Friday......

Sarah - Not really sure what to say apart from that you are in my thoughts a lot hun  :)

Ckbe - so sorry AF arrived for you too - hope you had fun at the wedding and have great fun planning yours - congratulations on that by the way! Have you got a date?

Struthie Good luck with slimming world, a good friend of mine is a consultant but I'm a WeighWatchers girl myself!  Have a lovely birthday.

Steph - Good idea about having xmas and new year to enjoy yourself and a detox before tx - that was going to be my plan if we couldn't have another IUI but hopefully we can get another try in before Xmas  :)

Suzi - When do you start down regging?  Hope this is the one for you  ^reiki^

Colly - Hope the side effects are wearing off a bit now and you are feeling a bit better  :)

Dannysgirl - hope you can get started soon

Ella - Hows things?

Hi to Anne (you'll be getting quite a bump now are you?), Sam, Vic, Marie and Bronte and anyone Ive missed.

love to you all

Hello all

Just a quick update from me (sorry, am not up to posting much at the moment). Have been going for bloods and scans every 2 days as my HCG levels have continued to rise, albeit slowly, and today they found some tissue in my womb so am booked in for a D&C on Friday. Horrid but better to get it sorted. DH & I are just taking 1 day at a time but once we've got through this we;re going to get a holiday sorted and to try to put our lives back on track a bit. We'll make a decision on where we go from here when we feel stronger, right now we just don't feel like we've got anyfight left but I know it will come back eventually...

Helly - so sory honey that you didn't get the news you deserve (((((())))))

Colly - hope those nasty side affects are easing - when do you start stims? Sending you +++

Struthie - well done you. I need to do the same and to try and lose some of this ivf weight gain!

Bronte- great news that you're going again honey! Sending you tons of +++

Marie - happy birthday for yesterday xxx

Ella, CKbe, Sarahjj, Vic and everyone else - how's things with you hope all ok.

Please forgive the lack of personals and my long absences, feel a bit like I'm stuck in a big hole at the moment and hours just pass by without my realising. With all the appointments I haven't gone back to work yet, am planning to go back on Monday - need some kind of normality back! Sorry for being down too.

Am thinking of you all lots of love & xx's
Sarah
xxxxxxxxxx
