Your mad you lot,but I love you!! Julie-sorry dont know about results my clinic are sh*t with results so I dont know,but I am sure they will be fine
Well I am sorry but this is gonna be a me me me post....
I am so angry/sad/upset blah blah.I called my cons secretary to pester her on my HSG results and she said that I should have received a letter with an appointment,have I heck as like.So after much begging she looked me up in her diary and my appointment for the results is Nov 3rd and I know that doesnt seem too far away but I am really ****** off as I know I am gonna get my period any day and I really wanted to get my last IUI out the way so we can go to private tx. And cos my cycles are since after the HSG and coming off clomid I will most deffo miss that next cycle too So I will not be having any tx till dec ish so now I am thinking f*ck it,lets just go private,I just dont know what to do anymore and now I am starting to panic thinking my tubes are blocked etc .I even asked for a cancellation appointment but she said no chance as my cons goes away soon till start of nov,so I asked if another cons could see me seeing as I havent seen "my" so called cons for a year but no because I started with him I have to stay with him GGGGGRRRRRRR
Sorry to be so down,I just dont know what to do at the mo-should I wait for the appointment and have tx in dec which I cant stand waiting that long,or should I just go private and crack on with IVF/ICSI and start donating my eggs?
All I have to look forward to now is my af feels like I havent been ttc for ages now,with no proper 2ww etc
Thanks for replying ,I dont know what I would do without you lot I will talk to DH later,problem is he leaves all the deciding to me and I think that puts more pressure on me.I always ask him what he thinks and he always says "whatever makes you happy babe " which I know isnt such a bad thing but sometimes I would like help in deciding
Julie - this is what Zita West ferility guru says about FSH as directed by the clinics:
below 6 v good
11- and over diminished reserve
Our clinic will treat up to 12 though and take a view from there. Some woman have had an FSH of over 20 though and have still been successful! I'm sure you will be fine
Kelly - to your clinic. It's a tricky one though isn't it and I too can understand your frustrations with your DH... My gut feeling is to stick with it as it's the last go and you'll have your HSG results. By the time you get into a private clinic, have their necessary tests that they will want to perform and then chat with consultant about ways forward you're probably going to be looking at an even longer time frame and possibly be at the same point in time, if not longer.... however, if you want to get the ball rolling at the new clinic before the new year then maybe it's good to crack on now BTW thanks for posting the list of who is going to the meet on the other thread - you're a star!
Oh Kelly, what a complete about your clinic. Why is everything for us so complicated all of the time. It's a tough decision to make, but I agree with Julie about waiting for your results first then deciding. Sending you a big old
Julie- good luck this afternoon babe.
Jilly- it's funny Dh and I have been talking along the same lines as you. We`ve decided on three IVF's then thats that. We would both love to adopt- infact it's something we would love to do regardless if we have a baby or not. I think it is so important to have a plan, so good on you, but it'll be ok you'll have that pot of gold in 12 months anyway. I'm psychic you know
Thanks sssooo much you lot,you have really cheered me up and made me see sense .You are all so right,I must wait for the results and if I am lucky my af will not turn up early and then I can do a crafty and book a scan for a couple of days after I get my results and I just might be able to have my last IUI I know I have said it before but "I couldnt do this without all of your help and support" you all deserve a medal-so forgive me if when we meet each other in Nov if I come up and give you all a big squish but do me a favour and wear something orange,I dint wanna be hugging strangers
Another thing has cheered me up,my sis has been sneaking with DH behind my back(NO not an affair)its my birthday on Halloween so she is taking me to the pictures on Fri and then to pizza hut so I am looking forward to that.
OOOHHH bugger,got to go and pick Oli up-Thankyou all so much,I will pop back later
Gutted - progesterone 26 whatever that means. What's the right level? Anyway, not good so have to try next stage. They've suggested Tamoxifen? Anyone know anything about that and what's the difference between that and Clomid?
Feeling sad and just wish I could get something in my body going right!
Tamoxifen is an anti-oestrogen so it works differently to clomid. I was on letrazole which works in the same sort of way. It has less side effects - mood swings, hot flushes etc & you may respond better to it than clomid too. Tamoxifen also doesn't cause any CM problems like clomid, as you might expect it's more expensive thats why most cons don't use it.
With letrazole I hardly knew I was on it! Hope it goes well for you.
Big to all the BFN's, I've been trying to keep up but after 2 weeks away I'm stuggling! Looby, Tomsmummy, Eire, Jilly, Kelly & everyone I've missed I'm thinking of you all & praying for the BFP fairy to visit you all soon
This is a me post, had scan today and cyst still there and has got abit bigger, cons said to wait for my next AF and to go back in 4 weeks, if still there he is going to take it away, feel so down now still haven't got off the starting line, he said when I do start tx he is going to keep me on the same amount of drugs as before although my FSH level was high it was only border line and I had 3 good follies so he is happy.
Hi Prof Waff - thanks so much for info.
I take it you fell pregnant after taking it? Did you also have problems with the progesterone levels?
Anyway have just spoken to the doc - very nice lady - asked her a million questions and she's suggested Tamoxifen for this next cycle, then if there's no improvement we'll go onto injections for the next cycle and I asked her if there's no improvement thereafter, what happens next and she said we'll probably be a knocking on the old IVF door. (worse case scenario)
Am a little less fed up as I feel that although this is yet another hurdle, at least we're making some progress and that if the Tamoxifen works or the injections work - then it's a good thing? Right? And if they don't - well at least there's a vague plan.
Love to you all - sorry no personals - and haven't had a chance to catch up on posts over last couple of days - Too busy doing me, me, me. So there!!!
me post i'm afraid
just got home after a lovely afternoon watching my lovely god daughter geting her 'wings' - ie finishing her air stewardess training, she looked so grown up and beautiful all dolled up in her uniform, was soooo proud of her
unfortunately whilst i was out dh had a letter arrive by courier, as he's still off sick, saying he's been made redundant jeez it never rains when it can pour.....BUT luckily it looks as though he will get quite a good package which means he can take a bit of time looking for the right new job. he's being v brave about it...trying to look for the positives in it and aware that things could be a lot worse. he has to go in on fri to talk to a solicitor, clear the desk and thats it. so i'm gonna have him around for a few weeks which will be nice. I'm really hoping this doesnt impact the adoption thing as they do look at out financial situation, but we'll cross that bridge when it happens...
sorry havent had time to read back much tho i did just see jillyplops message - love your trainers wearing out quote, know just what you mean. in my case i'm buying new ones that will run me on a different road. your post speaks volumes about where your heads are at, and knowing that there has to be an end sometime soon. this stuff takes over soooo much and its only since stopping that i've fully appreciated what it was doing to us...take care hunny, you never know what the next 12 months will bring but at the end you'll know which road your heading down instead of being at a crossroads every flippin month....
sorry not to catch up properly guys, my heads reeling somewhat, hadnt really got over last night yet and didnt really need another spanner
Keemjay - sorry to hear about your DH redundancy, I am sure everything will work out for you both, sending you lots of . I to have been made redundant this year and will be starting a new job on Monday.
Katrinar - sorry to hear about the cyst fingers crossed it will disappear on its own.
Kellydallard - hang on in there your appointment will soon be here, 3 weeks is not that far away and then at least you will have the results of the HSG and you will know which way to you need to go next.
Ericka - How are you today?
Hope everyone else is ok today,
Well I have my next scan tomorrow, which I am quite looking forward to, hoping follie has grown a bit more. Injections are going ok, although I did give myself a little bruise yesterday.... will be better at it again tonight.
Well only 2 days left in my current job, and can't wait to leave. Finally got my contract today for my new job - 4 weeks it has taken and in the end it got sent by courier today! All ok apart from the fact I have to open a bank account with the bank I am going to be working for to have my wages paid into, as they won't pay into another bank.
