Hiya

Keeping the seat warm ready for u on monday night nurse - good luck and dont let them poke around too much hun.  ^evil^ ^evil^ ^evil^

Kim - i know what you mean about day nurseries  - i work in a nursery school but we dont take babies as the amount of paper work involved doesnt give the staff enough time to look after them and if you get extra staff in to allow for this is makes the care too expensive and parents wont pay that much.  Its great when they get a bit older tho we take children from 2 yrs old and by then they are ready for the company and a bit of stimulation.  ^clapping^ ^clapping^ ^clapping^

Madcath  ^birthday^ ^birthday^ ^birthday^
hope you have a wonderful day hun

Lots of luv  Annie M ^daisy^ ^daisy^ ^daisy^

Positive vibe campaign stratehy...laugh at an aussie

Had the most interesting trip to the supermarket today. My first experience in Northern Ireland by myslef.

1. Asked for a six pack of stubbies. In australia a Stubbie is a small bottle of beer... obviously it means nothing here

2. Asked for a mince pattie...Turns out to be a hamburger... admittedly it may have sounded like a mince paddy which is probably the wrong thing to say over here

3. They said riteuare... no idea but I think it means no worries mate

Giggle how will I go at the Doctors  ::)

Just thought I'd do a post as i haven't posted for ages we got a BFN on our 4th iui this week so we are probably about to move onto IVF in a few months time after having a bit of a break.
Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for their support on this site and  I wish everyone all the love and luck in the world.           
            HOPE ALL YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE

Morning girls from a very worried night nurse!

HELP - I did my hcg jab this morning and I did it subcutaneous like my menpour jabs. However on a website i've just been on it said it should be intramuscualr.  Have I done it wrong?  Is my iui going to be a waste of time now.  I am very worried the nurse never told me it was intra muscular!

Can anyone put my mind at rest?

Hi NightNurse

Have replied to you on Ask A Nurse, but ditto to what Candy said! (Morning Candy - oops it's afternoon already! :eek: )

Just wanted to wish Mad Cath good luck for testing today!  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^
Thinking of you.

Sorry about your BFN Sicknote, good luck with the IVF and pop back sometimes to let us all know how you're doing.

I won't be around next week as going away but will be thinking of you all and suffering severe withdrawal from no FF fixes!
Will try to caatch up when I get back.  Good luck with the basting, stabbing and testing everyone (and the sniffing Candy!)

Love Molly

Hi girls how are you on this rainy Sunday afternoon, I am ok just a bit tired went on the town, with the girls last night for a few beers, it was a good night but I come home early, as you know I haven't felt well all week so pushed myself to go out, it was fun but come home about 1ish the girls stayed out, there were some right weirdo's about, men eyeing you up, I am so glad I'm not on the pull, and I've got DH! was a bit annoyed as I went to the toilet with my mates twin, and she was asking me about my endo, and kids (not a subject I want to be talking about) when I'm suppose to be out having fun, why ask me then!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!sorry girls sounds like I'm having a moan! but why can't people be senstive to all us wanting babies,
Anyway I am on day 23 now, and I haven't got any symtoms of af at all, my cycle is always 28 days, and with endo I usually start getting pain about two weeks before af, but none this month, I am on new tablets that the gynae give me for endo, which you take from day 15 to day 24 to help pain, so they really must be magic pills, but why haven't I had them before? or is wrong to think I could be preg? mind working overtime, sorry! just wishful thinking!!!!!!!!!!!
gOOD LUCK TESTING Madcath and a belated birthday!
hi to everyone else and lots of hugs
Cindyxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

hi all

just a quickie as am off for the first of 3 days induction at the hosp for my new job. think its going to be a bit dull actually as its nothing at all about the job I will do - its just what everyone from the cleaners upwards has to do.....infection control, health and safety, risk management etc etc. still I do get paid for it :)

night nurse, good luck with the big bad baster later

madcath - any news hun?

Starr, wot days ur op? cant remember :p

i had a pretty busy weekend, yesterday there was a big family reunion at my mums. my grandfather was one of 10 brothers and sisters so it was an attempt to get as many descendants of them in one place - we had about 60, which wasnt a bad effort. the last time we did one it was 1986 so people have changed quite a lot. we were thinking if its another 18 yrs till we all meeet again then we will be in our 50's  ^scared^ was very interesting anyway, lots of old photos to look at and different snippets of info. was a bit annoyed by some of the kids that attended, they literally ran riot all over the place, very naughty boys (aged between 7 and 10) who i found 'playing' (for playing read chucking things around) in the garage, the sheds, the coal bunker ;D and upstairs in the bedrooms, also stamping all over the plants and veg in the garden - can you believe the cheek. they were rude to boot, demanding drinks, breaking the plastic beakers on purpose, running thru grabbing handfuls of crisps half of which fell all over the floor, it was never ending.  i think they thought i was a bit of a witch, as i was on their backs all the time,  but their parents didnt seem to notice how awful they were. when they were all black from the coal bunker i wouldnt let them in the house till they were clean (and they were BLACK) if i hadnt seen them and intervened, my mums hoiuse would also be black by now! i sound like a right miss prissy, like i hate kids, and my mums house is certainly used to kids and dirt and mess, but honestly it was unbelievable - if they had been my kids i would have been so embarrassed by them

Rant over ^The End^

:) Happy Monday Everyone  :)

Hey Girlies

Mizz - huge hug for you.  I'm really sorry to hear about your cat.  It's horrible when a pet dies because it leaves a huge hole and the house seems really quiet afterwards.  It sounds like she was very much loved right to the end of her life.  ^Cuddle^ 

Molly's poem made me cry a little bit  :'( which would be fine but I'm at work and had to pretend to read something very close to my face for several minutes... people will thing my eyesight is going!!

Starr - you are so posh going to the Portland!!!  You will have to tell us all about it and try to steal a souvenir!!!

Angus - have you let DH out of the doghouse yet?  ^afro^

NightNurse - I'll be thinking of you at 3.30.  ^spot^

Bun Bun - it sounds like you've had a really hard time.  I hope this next treatment goes well for you.  DP and I are using a donor too and so was another woman on this board who has now got a BFP.  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

Annie - have you just been basted?  ^spot^

Kim - hope the induction isn't too boring.  Are you enjoying the job apart from the paperwork?

Elly - really glad that the babies are okay.  Have you announced your pregnancy to the world yet?  I hope you're getting plenty of rest.

Aussie Meg -  ^roflmao^ at your language barrier probs.  I remember when I was about 13 watching Neighbours (which is obviously an accurate representation of Aussie life!) and hearing them call someone a Spunk.  I was gobsmacked because that's pretty rude over here but a complement Down Under!!!

Sicknote - sorry to hear about your BFN.  How are you feeling about starting IVF?

Also  ^hello^ to Moodle, Candy, Gwen, Cindy, Molly, Purpleal, all the newbies and anyone I have forgotten (sorry).

DP and I went on an 8 mile bike ride yesterday  ^excercise3^ ^excercise3^ .  Okay, okay we did cycle to a pub, drink wine and eat a massive Sunday dinner, and when we got back I may have eaten a biscuit (alright, half a pack of biscuits if you must know) but still......

Massive hugs and big babydust to everyone,

^fairydust^ ^fairydust^ ^fairydust^

Hello Everyone!!

Hoe all you ladies are refreshed after the weekend and ready to face another week!

I have an appointment with the director of my clinic 10:30 am tomorrow morning. He wants to discuss the abandonment of my first and only iui and why they want me to have ivf. I asked him for my medical notes and he said I must not go to anyone else as it will just confuse me if I get a second opinion! How patronising - I think I am old enough to make that decision for myself, thank you very much!!  I am going to drop my registration form at ARGC today and am also considering seeing the Lister, so am feeling alot more positive today!

Have a great day everyone! ^fairydust^


Love Purpleal  ^daisy^

Hi there PurpleAl

Let us know what he says. Hopefully it will give you some further questions to ask your new guy. I can't stand the NHS and many of the doctor's patronising opinions. I went to the GP today to get my referral to the belfast clinic on 18/10. I told him that I had not had my AF since my m/c and that I would like to go somewhere for an ultrasound or have a bloodtest to check my levels and that my ovaries are active as well as my uterine lining as I am bcoming increasing upset and teary. He in his patronising I am a doctor manner advised me to wait that I should only have one specialist look at me and I should wait until 18/10 as it is not very long away. He finished with a patronising lots of women have m/c so you are not any different. After I let the temper cool a bit I said well how many women who ahve m/c after IVF have you treated. he naturally said none. I said I want a referral to go private as I would not dream of using the precious NHS resources that I pay for for my own peace of mind. He said you can't go and get a private ultrascan unless I give you a referral and I will not. So I promptly stood up told him to  f^zombie^k off and walked out slamming the door so that everyone in the surgery has something to talk about for the rest of the day. ^evil^ ^The End^

So the purpose of my little diatribe is to advise you to keep looking as there are some lovely doctors out there....unfortunately you may have to go through a few eejits to find them.

Sorry to bore everyone but I feel better now.

Megan
