Morning everyone

Huge congratulations to Ajax, Billie and Aliday!!!! ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

^hello^ to Sweet Kitty. I hope your appointment goes weel on Weds.

SMCC - Good luck with the stabbing!

JessP - Thanks for the tip about L'Arginine. We daren't use it at this stage in case we mess everything up but we'd use it in future. ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ for you - not long now....

^hugme^ for CK6. I am so sorry to hear about your little one. There really isn't anything I can say that will help at such a horrible time but we'ree all here if you need to talk about it.

Starr - Sorry the BMS didn't work this time. You said your DP wants to start IVF again in Feb. Would you rather start sooner?

^hello^ to Liz H, Petal B (thanks for the non-moving follie dance!!!), Jodi (hope you enjoyed your weekend off), Candy, Struthie (good luck with the basting), Debbie B, Murtle, Molly ( ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ), Catwoman ( ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ) and Mizz Gizz.

A bit of good news from us - Moosey's scan today showed six follies which is obviously a huge improvement on the three/four from last week.... They think the egg collection will be Friday or Monday which is inevitable really because I've got my granddad staying all weekend!! Not complaining though cos I'm desperate to get on with it..... :) :)

Lots of love

Victoria

Oh yipppeee  ^clapping^ ^banana^ ^pompom^ ^banana^ ^clapping^- what lovely good news for Ajax, Billie and Aliday - feeling all warm and positive just hearing it. Much love to you all.

Sorry to hear your news CK6 - was only mentioning you to my nurse at jab training last week. I hope your turn for happiness comes round really soon.  ^hugme^

Vil & Moosey - I'm keeping everything crossed for you and will be willing you on for the weekend. VIL - maybe a little follie dance around your COOL cool bag might help?  ^banana^ ;D

Hello Starr - sorry to hear that your break away didn't do the trick. I have to say that now we're only a week away from starting IVF we've sort of mentally given up thinking that we might have a natural miracle. On our hols the other week it was lovely not to have all that BMS pressure. Hope you sort out when you're going to get started soon. Sounds like I'm lecturing you - I not, but as you know i never wanted to go down this road, but its amazing that putting the marker in the ground has really helped sort a few things out and tie them down. Hope we'll see you at the IUI meet - know I'm not looking for a scottish girl now!!  ;D

Jess - nothing to say to you except  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Now we've had jab training we're all ready to start - Octber 20th is the big day!! Sort of can't wait and sort of don't want it to come around - you know what i mean girls, don't you!!

Anyway - big love to everyone i haven't mentioned

:-* Cathy  :-*

Hi girls,

I hope you have all had a good weekend, lots of news been posted while I have been away!
I have been staying at my mothers looking after my younger sister and the house while she is in hospital. She was taken in on Thursday with a suspected stroke so I have not been around much.

Caroline- I am so sorry to read your news, my thoughts are with you xx

Candy- My clinic do test the sperm before freezing but not after thawing. So in the IUI's they do not ever see how it thaws only in the IVF's after it has been put with the eggs which is why we only know now from our IVF in August.
I hope J has swapped his grizzly pants for some calmer quieter pants now :)

Murtle- Like I have just explained to candy ↑ . They have since looked in to the quality of sperm left in storage from that donor and it is all poor quality once thawed. The good news about my eggs being good is all that stopped me cracking up in there I think! :-\

VIL- I agree that the news the clinic gave me about the poor sperm quality has a positive side with the chances of success rising with another donor. This is why we are going for a last IUI before going through IVF again. I hope egg collection went well for you and moosey ^reiki^

Smcc- welcome and good luck with your IVF ^reiki^

Sweet Kitty- Good luck with your IVF ^reiki^

Star- Sorry to hear you have been feeling a bit down, I hope you are feeling a bit better now :-*

CathyA- Not long until you start now, good luck ^reiki^

^BFP^ ^banana^ ^rainbow^ Congratulations To Amanda,Billie and Aliday ^rainbow^ ^banana^ ^BFP^

Hello All,

CONGRATULATIONS BILLIE, AJAX, & ALIDAY - What wonderful news - Wishing you all a happy and healthy PG.

Caroline - So sorry to hear your news - No words will help, just remember we will be here whenever you need us  :-* :-*

News from My end  ::) ::) Could this year get any worse ???

I found out last thursday that my Job is being displaced at the end of november. So although they cant actually displace me until i come back from Mat leave. It then means i have 8 weeks to find a new Job or they will match me to a role of their choosing within a 2 1/2 hr travelling distance. I know its not the end of the world but makes me feel a bit unsettled none the less.

Then .....  Friday night dad was rushed to hospital with a heart attack  :'( :'(  I got a call about 7.30 from dad croaking 'come quick'  When i got there he was so grey, and having cold sweats, etc etc. Ambulance crew were great - couldnt have got dad to hospital any quicker. he then spent nearly 4 hours in Resus, before they would let me see him. He has had a further attack over the weekend but seems stable today, though he is being carefully monitored on a Cardiac ward.

Had mums memorial service this morning, must admit seeing the ashes being scattered was really sad,
But it is what she wanted and i do at least feel that she is finally at rest.

Growth scan last week showed her to be 5lb 5 but a bit on the small side, Cons seemed to think she would be here anytime in the next week or so  :eek: :eek:

Anyway enough of my rambling
Love to Murtle, Starr, Petal, Jane, Lilly, Cathy, VIL, Struthie and anyone else i have rudely forgotten  :-* :-*

Love Looby XXXX

Hey All

A bit happier today....

Looby honey it's really being thrown at you eh sweetheart..... Hope your dad is ok how scary.  I'm sure Cherry is just fine petite is all the rage this year!!  Grrr to your job, please don't let it spoil the magic coming in the next few weeks.  Thinking of you all xxxxxxxxx

Cathy  look at you being all confident eh!!  I know you are right and in a way i'd like to get on but Pete really wants to hang on... I've looked at timing to start earlier but with my cycle we're going to have major events at xmas so i think i'll just leave it now. If we go with Jan's cycle it will be feb before anything needs to happen so i think that'll be ok xx  (i'll see you at the meet.. i;m working on my scottish accent!!)

Vil...i'm ok to wait. Glad things are going well for you now. Fingers crossed e/c goes well this weekend.  BTW does Grandad know about the tx ??

Lilly hope your mum is ok xx

Love to you all xx

Starr xx

Congratulations for all the BFPs!!!! That's fab news!!

VIL & Moosey - wow! Sounds like a fantastic response!  Really hoping you get some nice juicy eggs/embryos out of that little clutch!

I feel so much like AF is about to get me!  Got awful cramps - if I make it to testing on Friday that in itself will be a small miracle!

Anyway, it's a lovely sunny day here in Ipswich & our new garden furniture is being delivered this pm! I know it's a bit late in the year but it was half price!! ;D

Good luck to all of you with a precious load & anyone due to test this week! ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Lots of love,
Jess xxxxxx

Jess,
Hang on sweetie.
Not that I've ever been pregnant, but they do say the symptoms of AF and early pregnancy are almost the same.  Some people swear not, but others....well,

So, hang in there.  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Love Jodi

well had acupunture today very weird, with all of those needles :eek:the doctor told me(well someone else did because he could not speak english ;D)he seemed very good  and knew alot about fertility,he told me that i have a kidney inbalance which can stop people getting pregnant and very low energy levels,also something else that i can't remeber now.and said that acupunture will help this.they did not try and make me but lots of things which i thought was good,just wondering what anyone else was told when they had it done

Hello ladies

Jess - as Petal says - hang on in there.  Just to confirm what Jodie has said, you do get all the AF signs and symptoms and like you, i too was convinced i would not get to test date.  Loads of luck  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^
Looby - really sorry to hear about your dad.  Hope things are getting a bit better.  ^hugme^

Vil&Moosey - Good to hear the follies have improved - good luck for EC and ET next week  ^reiki^

CathyA - Good luck for the 20th!

Billie and Ali - hope all is well with you two!  :)

Murtle - How are you?  Did you get the boiler all sorted out in the end?

Petal - I think there is a lot to be said for alternative therapies and have heard quite a few stories about how it can help where modern medicine cant.  Wishing you lots of luck in the next few weeks.x

Struthie - hope the IUI goes well and that i return to some good news

Caroline - Lots of love to you x

A big hello to anyone else i have missed - do not mean to but my head is all over place at moment!

I am still not packed for tomorrow - we are off to Orlando and New York for nearly 3 weeks.  As some of you may remember i was considering delaying tx until after this trip but was made to see i could not put my life on hold.  All i can do is hope and pray that everything will be fine.  I am not a great flyer at best of times(infact i am bl**dy terrified) but i really do need to try and stay calm this time.  I cant have a vodka IV or any over the counter remedies.  I do have bach's rescue spray and have been trying to figure out how to get the top of so i can down the lot!!LOL 

I hope everyone has a good few weeks and i hope to return to some more good news.

Lots of Love
Amandaxx
P.s Have first scan booked for 31st Oct - please let us get there!

hi all,

Jess  ^roflmao^ at your boobs!!  I can't hear the fat lady singing yet so hang on in there. Your cramps might be everything snuggling down in there!

Petal - how interesting. I haven't tried acupuncture but a friend of mine (who has just had a baby after IVF x2 ) swore by it. She said it made a great difference to her AF etc (sorry TMI!)

Looby Lou - so sorry to hear about your Dad. Hoping he's more comfortable now. and hope your job situation sorts out OK.

Lilly - sorry to hear about your mum too. What a worry.

Ajax - have a good time in the States. You'll be there before you know it. You'll be just fine!

Well I went to the GP today and while I was there he asked me how I was coping with all this TX stuff. i made the mistake of being honest and telling him that I have good days and bad days - you know - like we all do and i told him that I'd found myself crying in Tescos the other day cos it was one of those bad days when every other person is a pg lady/mum with baby/ mum with screaming kid etc etc. he them went on to ask me if I was eating OK, sleeping Ok and had i every considered harming myself!  :eek: Whats more he want to see me again in a week (presumably to make sure that I haven't thrown myself under the wheels of someones trolly in Tescos).

Can't quite believe it and i'm worried that hes got me down as a manic depressive (which if I am, I have been all my life!). I think it just goes to show they don't have a handle on this IF thing at all, do they?

Anyway time to cook some tea - thats if i can be trusted with the potato peeler!  ^confused^
