I'm just waiting for it to be confirmed Ive got to call in with the date of my next AF which is around the 20th March & they Will see if they can fit me in April cycle or it will be May as they first said  ::) Its such a mad rollercoaster of a ride & its only just began  :eek:  So for now I'm not sure what cycle buddies i belong in but if you don't mind i will stay here for now  :)

I should be starting my IVF with ICSI in May... I'm just waiting for it to be confirmed Ive got to call in with the date of my next AF which is around the 20th March & they Will see if they can fit me in April cycle or it will be May as they first said. Ive got a feeling its going to be such a mad rollercoaster of a ride & its only just starting!!!

I will be having my EC at JPH & ET at Bourn Hall Cambridge.

Look forward to getting to know everyone, and Encouraging you through your TX!

Lots of  ^fairydust^ to everyone

Bye for now... Carey x

Thanks Sharry!!

Hi Carey!!

This will be my second cycle of ICSI.  Since my last cycle ended in a BFN blood tests have shown that I have low AMH.  They asked me to do this test as I didn't respond too well to the drugs and only produces 4 follicles.  This cycle they are going to change me to a short protocol (i.e. no down regging) and giving the the max dose of the stims.  Saying that though I did get a good embryo to put back, but alas it wasn't to be....

Depending on the date my AF starts in May, I should be starting on the 8th of May.

Look forward to sharing the journey with you May/June girls xxx

I had decided not to post on here for a bit as its ages until we start tx again but its not, its only 2 months away  :eek: how has that happened so quick?!

Sqwelch - I was a snowdrop yep, and I remember you with such a top nickname  :) Honestly its not long now if you count the weeks. We'll be jabbing away again before you know it .... and for the final time I hope  ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Carey - my weekend was nice. Away with friends, redwine, nice food and scrabble  :) How about you?
Loulah - hopefully the short protocol will do the trick for you  ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Locini - Fingers crossed you join us in May

Michaelaeloise ........ blimey thats a mouthful of a nickname  :) . Its so exciting to be close to starting the adventure isn't it?

^hello^

Great to see we are growing.. Hope everybody is well?

michaelaeloise - Its my first cycle too  ^eyes^ I'm like you i have never wished for a period in my life but i cant wait for this months as it means i will find out the dates of my cycle  ;D cant wait to get started now.

Locini - When will you find out your start date, r u like me & having to wait for next AF to arrive?

Nordickat - I keep thinking the same, that our tx is ages away but like you say it really isn't that long.....  :eek: Sounds like you had a lovely weekend... Nice food & good wine is always a winner in my eyes. Me & DH have decided to give up the booze, Its been 4 weeks so far, we don't drink a great deal anyway but a nice glass of Rose Wine is always good :) at the mo my weekends & week days all roll into one as Ive been off work 3 months tomorrow!! i fell over on the ice in Dec & broke my ankle, resulting in 2 operations to have screws put in to hold it all together... I'm still on not able to walk on it  :( Its all abit of a nightmare to be honest... gives me way to much time to sit here thinking &  ^pray^ it will all work out ok.

Sqwelch - Hope your ok ?

^Heart^ Carey xx

Welcome to all the new girls on this thread!!  Hope everyone is doing ok.  HAPPY FRIDAY!!

I'm heading out tomorrow night with the girls, it's the first time i've felt brave enough to go out and talk about our last TX with them.  Have been avoiding talking about it with them before as although they new were were trying IVF, they just really didn't get exactly what a huge deal it is and how much it can take from you, and I found it difficult to explain it.  I'm hoping if I can explain it a bit better to them, that they will be more of a support next time.  I have to say I felt quite lonely on our last TX, even though hubby was good, you sometimes just need a girl to talk to.  That's why FF is brilliant!!

^pray^ ^pray^ ^pray^  that May/June is lucky for all of us!  One of the nurses said the other day that there is a "slight" increase in BFPs this time of year due to the lighter, brighter days making us feel more positive.  I hope she's right....

Is anyone doing any special diets whilst preparing for this TX?  I starting taking Selenium & Fish Oil supplements a couple of weeks back (as well as Pregnacare) as they are meant to be good for Egg production.  Also trying to eat healthier and really haven't been drinking at all for about 4/5 months now (since before our last TX), although I had a couple last weekend and will have a couple this weekend.  Will cut it out completely again a month or so before the next cycle.

Any diet advice welcomed.

Loulah ♥

loulah - I wish I was brave enough to tell people about our tx because, you are right about being lonely on your own. I´m taking all sorts of wacky supplements this time which is probably out of desperation lol. I haven´t really drunk much alcohol for a while either but I plan on having the odd glass of wine for a few more weeks yet. My last coffee was 2 days ago though which is a killer as I do love going out for a double latte  :) . DH is on a diet and as he is chef I´m being quite healthy. He had lost 4 kg and I have gained 1 kg though so no more treats for me as of todays weigh in.

Eloise - cheating on the nickname I know  ;)  but I love the name eloise  :) . I hope you are having a nice weekend? I live abroad so I´m at a foreign clinic.

Carey - thats rubbish :(  how long until you are mobile again? Too much time for soul searching I guess? You must have read every book going and  watched every movie out by now. I hope you are keeping chirpy though with the thought of your BFP being closer than its ever been before.

:-* to all,
Katxxx

michaelaeloise - I will be having my EC at JPH & ET at Bourn Hall Cambridge... yes all very exciting ;D

Loulah - I hope you had a nice evening out with the girls & they were all understanding & supportive... i have two really close friends who are really supportive & its such a great help. I'm loving what the nurse said to you lets ^pray^ its true & we get lots of BFP :) As for special diets, Ive never been very good at the whole diet thing, I'm OK for a few weeks then it all goes pear shaped ::) but i have started taking folic acid & cutting the coffee out only having decaf now & again also when I'm back on my feet i will get back to the gym, I'm so missing my morning swim :(

Nordickat how lucky are you having a chef as DH, lots of yummy food i bet. Do have a treat now & then, I'm sure you will lose from now on... ^hugme^ I really hope to be more mobile by the beginning of April, i have my first physio on the 29th March so hopefully they will be able to give me a rough idea of how long it is going to take. Your right every book & DVD i can lay my hands on.... friends have been dropping them round by the bag full... lol

Me & hubby were naughty tonight & went to pizza hut... but our eyes where to big for our bellies & we ended up bringing most of it home as we couldn't fit it all in ;D as always my diet will start tomorrow... lol
