Hello all,
I'm back after having a lovely weekend! It was dh birthday Saturday so all went out for a meal...yummy but i can't seem to find treacle sponge on my diet sheet !! ::)
Rach, it's lovely to have you back! So sorry you brought a present back with you!! I think i'd go with Claire's prescription - far cleaner than the yoghurt! ;D
Juliet, you'll have to let us know when you start with the silly voices!! Do you think it has to happen!!! ^idiot^
Sunflower, hope your bloods went well today - when do you hope to start stimms?
Puss, how are you buddy? Still ok on the hrt? I'm now on brown ones morning and night til Sunday, what about you? I think af is meant to come a week on Thursday or thereabouts with our blood tests the following Monday!
How are the rest of you? Are you all at work this week?
Claire, i'll be happy to take that job, definately need to find something!! I'm really worried about your description of me though...am i really that bad!! :-[
Anyway, back at the doctors tomorrow for my shoulder (it's getting better but nowhere near pain free yet!) then on to see my horrid boss after that...deep joy!
Speak to you all soon
love Piper x

Me and my dh have an appt Weds at Care sheffield with paula the nurse to talk about our
treatment we are having IVF/ ICSI and it all sounds really complicated and i have to say
scary specially the needles bit.....
You all sound really supportive of each other and hope you will allow me to join your gang...

Hello everyone

Well – day 3 of the HRT and all’s well so far apart from a bit of a headache, which probably has nothing to do with them! 

Piper – good to hear it’s all ok your end with the tabs, I’m on the brown ones morning and night now until Sunday when it changes again.  Hope the docs appt goes well – tell that dodgy boss not to overload you before your shoulder’s healed properly or your hormonal mates on here will get him! 

Sunflower – hope everything went ok with the bloods today and they’re letting you start the stims on schedule.

Claire – you’re mad!  OK – my DH also has the goatee thing going on – but I really can’t see him as leather man or the sailor – he’ll have to wave a flag or something!

Rach – hello,  nice to meet you!  Def canestan combo not muller corners – those chocolate covered cornflakes will play havoc….

Juliet – how’s freddo doing?    You mentioned Q10 supplements in one of your posts a couple of days ago I think – it’s not one I’d heard of before, what does it do? 

Deb Bee – hello there – nice to meet you!  Paula’s really nice and explains the process really well.  The girls here are also great and you can ask any question you like - you’ll get loads of help and support here

Best go get tea sorted out now – tummy’s rumbling!

Ttfn

hi piper and puss..
glad you both ok on the hrt....at least there some colours in there you both seem to know whats going on..are you expecting any side effects ?

hi puss well the q10 i took for a very good reason but can not remember why so will find out ..my friend got my zita west book and its from there i got it...claire...are you there mi duck if you got time can you look in your book if you got it yet??im seein my friend tomorrow so ill try and get the book back and scan it and send it to you....i like the bit about choc covered cornflakes you know we like chocolate covered anything and much less sensible than the canesten....freddo sort of ok keep getting a bit of indegestion sort of stitch but not sure whether that could be him grabbing or moving...its all scary ...might ring midwife tomorrow just so i can here the heart beat cos now it been nearly 6 weeks since last scan and your sort of in limbo....only two weeks to go to the scan...wishing the days away...

piper um yes there must have been a typing error  on your diet sheet under puddings...anything with custard yummy...glad you had a good weekend and dh had good birthday........as for the sill voices i made a pact to myself i was going to remain me and not turn into one of those women who do your heads in...ive watched my brothers and wifes and friends ...so i been making notes on what not to do rather than what to do..sure it will all going pete tong..
hi deb bee...great you here and we be here along the way for you...and glad you like mad cos theres plenty of it round here...it is scary but exciting paula is very good nurse and i was petrifed about needles but wasnt as bad as i thought...it is an emotional rollercoaster and it takes a lot of strength more than the outside world of ivf realise...its a big waiting game but hopefully with care and lots support you can be on your way to being a mummy....there is lots of books and info and of course all our experineces to help you...puss and piper on short protocol and they be able to tell you all about it...i had ivf icsi and so did some of the girls and just ivf as well....

claire and rach how are you my lovelys

Hiya girls this is just a quickie before i go to work.

Not been around for a while as been suffering with side effects so decided to have a bit of a break from the boards just to try to forget about IVF for a bit, I think it worked, spent the weekend pampering myself and DH took me shopping and out for a meal and I'm now feeling a lot better again, and Yeah we won the ashes back.

Went to care yesterday for bloods and further injection training.  They had written to my previous hospital requesting copies of our HIV, Hep B & C tests and not got anything back, they asked me to chase them up and fax the results through for Wednesday, I was a bit disappointed with the clinic for this because If I'd have known I would have chased up the results ages ago myself.  DH thought it was better if we paid the £100 and have the tests done again as on passed experience it would probably cause me so much stress which I don't need right now. So bloods went OK, injection training OK too so I've to ring on Wednesday and hopefully start stimms on Wednesday night.  :)

Hope everyones OK, and I'll catch up soon.

Love Sunflower x

hi sunflower

glad you had some pampering time...and shopping too even better...i must admit when i did my treatment i looked on the boards but never posted...so think it does you good to have time out ...you know we here for you anyway..

what are care like they usually make sure they have all that stuff before you start your treatment...i think the break of two weeks of them away screws things up in every sense think they should review that better...probably easier to just pay the £100..but like you say you have had lots time to ask for it...anyway see how things go on wednesday and hopefully youll be starting stimming...xx

hi girls how are you all...well my little baileypippin my house bunny for those that dont know is really not well got a tough decision to make today...my mum looks after him and he runs round the house and garden(when i got togther with mark he had springers spaniels and they like bunny just a bit too much)  we all upset ...oh one of them days you dont look forward to in life...
last night was the first time in 5 months that i slept straight through till this morning....feel a bit better for it ...
anyway hope you al doing ok
hey claire must of missed the one about the leathers....mark can do leathers bet hell look like a chubby freddy mercury very camp...although he looks like a scruffy construciton guy most of time...funny thing is im imagiaing him in latex shinny black...oh my god hed go ape if he could read this........oh im still laughing about kingston...sorry i know it old but its one of those classic make you laugh moments that last a lifetime!!
love baileypippin xx

Hi all,

Sorry I haven't been around for a few days. I've been Really tired. Don't know why. Maybe it's the stress of all this IVF malarkey. As some of you know, It's my 1st appointment tomorrow with Dr.Lowe. I feel very nervous and terribly unsure about everything!!
I've even burst into tears at work today but felt silly as I couldn't really tell anyone why  :-[

Thankyou to everyone who welcomed me to the board and who answered my multitude of questions. It's nice to know I'm not alone  :)

Deb Bee - I may see you tomorrow at my appointment - Jusy look out for the terrified one!!! LOL

I'm still trying to work out who every one on the board is and what their treatment is etc. so please bear with me. I still get all flustered when I read the posts!! I'm a wimp.

Baileypippin - Hope all is going well with your pregnancy xx

Much love

Michelle xxxxx

hi mechelle ...
yes it is a big step and it is daunting but when you see the doctor youll feel a lot better cos it gives you hope  and its very positive...when i went for my appointment...in the december they said right start next month...every month i rang and cancelled it cos i was scared...you read so many things and hear so many stories about ivf ...but i think the best thing to do is get all the info you can ...read about people ..read about the treatments the pros and cons...im a great believer in knowledge is power so the more you know i think the less scared youll be...i know you feel like everything is riding on you..... honestly dont leave that room without asking what you really want to ask, the things that are niggling you.....i found mark didnt say a lot...he was more nervous than me but when he came out he said yep lets go for it...itll work for us...he was always convinced it would work first time....so good luck for tomoorw...never apologise for not coming on line everyday...you take it at your own pace..but let us know how things go..and how you feeling

love baileypippin xx
p.s the real baileypippin still around,  my dog gave him big lick today...not stopped running round all day...think a nice cup of regular tea is in line and a dunking biscuit xx

Bailey - Thanks for the supportive words  :) Just what I needed. I'm pleased to hear that bubba is doing good and that he/she is already bonding with your doggy. LOL

Deb Bee - I hope all goes well for you tomorrow. Sounds as if you're a little further up the ladder from me  :) If I see anyone quaking as much as me I'll try and say hi  ;) Good luck hun.

DH is pamering me like mad tonight. He's just been to Morrisons and bought fresh vegetables and a fresh chicken to make a late tea!! Hope he's not 'after anything'  :) Hopefully he's just being nice and supportive 'cos he wants to be and there's no hidden agenda!!!!

Hope this post finds everyone well and in good spirits.

Much Love
Michelle xxxxxxxxx

Hello all,
Good luck Deb Bee and Michelle for tomorrow. I remember at our first appt dh was terrified and didn't have a clue and i just wanted to get on with it. In the end we didn't have our first go till nine months later!! But it was the right time for us as we were both prepared by then :)
The hrt are used as part of the short protocol so that the clinic has some control over our cycle as with short protocol you don't down reg!! Basically we are on hrt for a couple of weeks and then have a blood test. If all ok then we will start suprefact one day and menopur the next. Menopur is the stimulating drug and we will take that for approx 10 days before having egg collection and then transfer! Short protocol is usually used if your fsh is over 10, or you are a poor responder.
Last time i was on long protocol as i'm borderline! With this you down reg for appx 2 weeks by injecting suprefact and then after blood tests you start on the fsh...then same as before egg collection and transfer!!
All will be revealed tomorrow and you will feel a lot more knowledgeable!
Juliet, glad Bailey Pippin doing a bit better - is it old age?
Sunflower good to know you're doing better this week, fingers crossed it's stimms for you on Wednesday!
Hello Cluur, Rach and Puss, hope you're doing ok!
Signed off for another 2 weeks and at physio tomorrow! No petrol in car as all the silly people have bought it all!!!
Love Piper x

Hi there! 

Deb Bee/Michelle - I'm at Care too at 1030 tomorrow for injection training - are either of you ladies likely to be lurking in the waiting room around then? 

Care also seem to use short protocol for "older ladies" (like me!) regardless of our FSH levels,  I think the assumption is that we're unlikely to respond as well to long protocol as spring chicks!  I really hate thinking of myself as old - I don't feel old at all - but apparently I am!  Oh well,  here's to growing old disgracefully!

Hi Piper -  Wow - the doc signed you off for another fortnight - it sounds like you're really in the wars there. I hope the physio appt does some good - they worked wonders in just one session when I did my shoulder in a  couple of years ago.  Still popping the little brown pills this end!

Oops - got to go and set the video for Spooks,  DH will have a fit if I cock it up!

Hello to everyone I've missed!

Puss
