I'm booked for hysteroscopy end of July and hopefully start ICSI tx early August. This will be my second try after a fail attempt 2 yrs ago. I'll be travelling from Tokyo for this tx, originally from Malaysia. It is a long way for me but thought I wanted to give myself the best chance. Gonna cost us a fortune what with travelling and accommodation, but I'm sure it's worth it in the end.
Kate-J -- I'm doing acupuncture too, once a week plus daily heat treatment (moxa) at home. Notice any difference so far? I noticed AF is longer and came earlier than normal.
What I used at home are mini moxa cones with an adhesive side that stick on the specific acupuncture points. Just light it with a lighter and leave it on till the heat fades away. I bought them from my practitioner in Tokyo, cost around 10 quid for a box (180 mini sticks). I dont know where u could buy them in the UK, but I found this site for you to check:
we should be starting around the same time, my 1st ivf tmt failed on the 3rd of june, they say ive got 2 have 3 periods b4 2nd attempt, my 2nd af is due anytime now so i should be starting buserelin around 16th aug.
i hope all goes well 4 you.. just the waiting that does my head in.
Chick - Thanks for the welcome and for putting me on the Angels list, this site seems to make the wait go quicker
Lisae - Having a Cycle Buddy will be great, I didnt have it last time so this will really help. Bening on the site does make the wait go quicker and feels like I am doing something. I am looking forward to my AF for the first time ever!! I am also on the In Betweeners Thread and have left a message for you there. Hope to chat soon
cant wait til we srart all those wonderful injections ouch!!!
when is your af due? mine was almost a week ago, but no sign yet! i had this srrange thought that maybe the test was wrong and i could be preg, chance would be a fine thing! do you feel more hurt when people around u r getting preg? coz i do, i get this awful gut feeling and find myself telling them how happy i am 4 them, when really im thinking... god, that should be me!
ive got this friend who is younger than me, only 19, she wants a baby 2, just as we started our tmt she told me that they were trying but scince i got bfn she seems 2 be going on and on about when she has her baby! shes not even preg yet and has brought almost everything even put a deposit on a pram, sorry 2 go on its just doing my head in.
take care, love lisa xxxxxxx
I know exactly what you mean, everytime I go out or see someone walk past my house pushing a pram I could scream!!!!! I try to not let it get to me, but some days I feel really bitter and that life is so unfair
I work with 5 pregnant girls at the moment and they are driving me mad, one is particularly nasty and has been slagging off IVF treatment and saying it is unnatural!!! She is a complete cow and has no idea. i take great pleasure in the fact she does not look pregnant just FAT!!!
Oh well luckily they all start to leave soon and believe me I will not be putting to their collection
Hopefully we will get our dream one day and become mommies
Im not sure when I will get my AF really because of the last lot of treatment, it should be roughly end of July but we will wait and see
Hi! Can I join you? I am going for first cycle of IVF dr mid august for ec/et early september. Having treatment in Leeds. Excited and terrified. Wish it didn't have to be this way. Have been having japanese acupuncture for last 6 weeks, haven't noticed much change. Had some chinese herbs too. And homeopathy. Still have the occasional half of guiness though. Surely that's allowed?!
Good luck everybody!
I am new to this thread too. It's nice to have somewhere to wait isn't it?? Roll on August I am so sick of waiting. If all goes to plan I should start D/R on my birthday!! (8th Aug)
Joxxii - I have had acupuncture too and only stopped a few weeks ago. Although I didn't notice any huge changes I am sure it must have been beneficial on some level. I haven't heard of Japanese acupuncture though - how is it different from Chinese?
Hi to everyone else. Looking forward to getting to know you better.
