Hi Everyone!

I have been away from the net for the last day, and you have been busy, it takes time to catch up.

Mel: What a great news, I'm so glad for you. With all those follies and all those eggs, no wonder you are feeling sour. You are really going to fill up the freezer. I keep my fingers crossed for you and Tony tomorrow.
When I have been early in a pregnancy I have had a lot of pain in my stomach, going backwards to the lower back. I guess it is a similar type of pain, and the only thing that helped me is a good backrub, So you just put Tony to work. :D

Sue: The orange spot seems to work well, what a good result. I can never go on my own to a scan, Dh is always with me. But I'm terrified for hospitals, so I need to hold hand. :)
I keep my fingers crossed for you tomorrow.

Elaine, Clare, Sal: Hope you all are okay.

Laura: I'm sorry your cycle was cancelled. I hope they find out soon what the problem are. As Jac said you have to trust your instinct and give your little frostys the best environment.

Cathie: Welcome. This is a great place when you need to sort your own feelings out, so don't feel like you are waffling. We all do some times.
It is difficult to talk about these things, especially to someone who gets pregnant easily. My closest friends have IVF babies, and that makes it a little easier to talk.
So it is natural that you feel depressed some times. I hope we can help you when it becomes to heavy.

Nicole: Good luck, it sound good so far.

For me I am going up and down. Don't feel so well, but are very tired since I have spent to days teaching. Have one day tomorrow to, and it is tough to talk for eight hours even when I am feeling good. Yesterday I felt a sleep immediately when I came home.

We went to the clinic and got the pen-instruction for the puregon. It's going to be difficult. I was so terrified I almost fainted. Dh was great, and I don't think I felt so much of it, but the whole situation made me panicking. The worst part was that I couldn't hold Dh:s hand while he did the shot. :)
My hospital phobic is a huge problem, but I'm not going to let it stop us. We start the stimms tomorrow, and the thought terrifies me.
It was when I had to do the surgery after the ectopic that I realised how severe the phobic is. The anaesthetist said he never seen anything like it. They couldn't get me to sleep. I was shivering so hard, so I jumped up and down on the bed in the preparation room. My best friend was with me and she was there all the way into the operation room, and when I woke up. The hospital said they couldn't have managed it without her. After 5-6 hour they send me home, I was in such a terrible shape so the doctor thought it was less risky to have me recover at home then in the hospital.
At least I realised I had to do something about it. I don't want my baby to be terrified for doctors because of it's parents. ???Unfortunately Dh have the same phobic.

It is nice here for the moment. ;D -17 degrees and 30 cm of snow. Dry and nice. It's like walking in sand, just a little bit colder. ;D ;D

Good luck to all of you. ^group^

Love
Lind

Hi Lind sorry about your hospital phobia - that must make tx very stressful. I hope that after a couple of days you will find the puregon pen not so bad. Its the syringes that I find hard to cope with.

Mel good luck for tomorrow with your ET. Then it will be 2ww - everything crossed for you and Tony.

love julie anne xx

Mel and Tony Congratulations this is a fantastic outcome for you both, it couldnt be better could it. Well done both of you especially Mel for impersinating a chicken!!!!! ;D Your poor ovarys, hope they are better today and that glass is full of water.

SueMJ - What a day for you as the others have said. But you have to remember that it really does only take 1 egg. 3 is a great number if I remember rightly they agreed to put 3 back for you anyway so thats perfect! Dont stress too much, as weve seen on the boards anything can happen and 3 follies Im sure is just fine. But hugs anyway!!! ((((((((((((((((HUG)))))))))))))))))) ;D

Love Lou xxxx

Well done Mel and Tony.

Suemj, you are right!!! The three follies will bring joy.


I'm still down regging and now have AF and a reaction with my left leg, it burns then blisters as soon as I have injected. I phoned the nursey today to check it out (right leg doesn't mind it, funny that.


Hope everyone is well.

I too think you have made the right decision. God it's so hard when you have to decide something so important mid tx.

But you only need one as everyone says.

Get your orange spot out now!!!

Mel & Tony - how fantastic, wishing you so much luck for the 2ww.

Good luck to all the January girls!

Love Vicky

Oh Sue. I"m thinking of you today.
I think you made the right decision to go ahead with the EC.
Last night I went for my scan and of the 13 follicles only six looked huge, the other 7 were all too small. The doc felt that if we waited until Monday to do the transfer, we might risk having the big guys rupture. So we are going ahead with the EC tomorrow.
What a let down. But I keep focusing on what all the other girls keep saying which is that it only takes one. That's it. It only takes one. Keep focusing on that. I'm routing for you.

Mel I'm so thrilled for you guys. I"ll be saying my prayers for you during the next while.

Lind I have a lot of experience with Panic and anxiety and used to teach courses on how to cope. Please email me if you want to chat or have some help with coping with your anxiety.
Have a great weekend everyone. Fingers crossed for ALL OF US!!!!
Lots of love
Nicole

Mel & Tony - well done - what a fantastic result - it's looking GOOD ;D ;D ;D

Sue MJ - I'm so sorry you had this disappointment at this stage - it must be so hard. Praying for you that those 3 guys are really good & will give you the +++ you long for. Wishing you every +++ thought I can & thinking of you over the next few days. ((((((HUG)))))))

Nico - I'm sorry for you too that you have had a change of plan which is not really what you were hoping for - try not to worry too much & think +++ - hopefully you will have some beautiful embies waiting for you on Monday morning. (((((((HUG)))))))))

Love to you all

Mel & Tony - Congrats on your ET today! and all your lovely frosties!!!! ;D ;D Take care of each other! :-* :-*

As for me, thanks Carol for posting my news! I'm trying to stay positive but it's really hard - I went to work and burst into tears straight away, infact all day the tears just keep appearing.

I just don't know what I have to do, what I've ever done wrong to deserve so much heartache - I'm so fed up with battling for everything in my life. I know that sounds like real sour grapes and thats just life, but I sure as hell don't think I should have had to deal with so much crap........ thought 2002 was crap, please don't let 2003 be so too..... sorry, :'( again - really am feeling so sorry for myself. I just don't understand it coz I'm so adamant that I am to have my own children, I don't have a single bone in my body that thinks I wont - so I'm confused.

I'm just hoping - each cycle I have had so far has had some blip at a different stage each time - last time was at the very end, having had 13 eggs, none then fertilised. So lets hope this is my blip now and my 3 maybe 4 eggs that I hope I'll get on Monday will fertilise!!!! AAAAAAHhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Bloody Hellllllllll, WHHHHHYYYYYYYYYYYYY????????????????

Sorry sorrry sorry - I'm going on again - and it sounds so daft, coz I'm trying to put down whats racing through my mind, but it doesn't quite come out the same in type.

Anyway, got to get back to my Bob Marley song - Don't Worry, Be Happy, Every little thing's gonna be all right! ;D

Thanks girls for your support, you're all so great......

love,

Sue :'( :-*

Sue MJ

You asked me earlier today if you had made the right decision. You def. have, you talked through your options and you HAVE made the decision and you have to keep orange positive thinking.

^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

This cycle WILL work. This is the crap bit of the cycle that throws crap obstacles in your way. YOU WILL ACHIEVE YOUR DREAM

It takes 2 embs to become twins (well unless 1 splits!!) and your belief is soooooo strong that you will have children. YOU WILL. Keep believing

This weekend it's positive thinking and there will be no slacking on that. No get out clauses allowed.

Lots of Love
Sue

"Dont worry bout a thing, cos every little things gonna be alright"
Come on Mrs SueMj ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ive thoughts.
As i said to you on the phone this morning, the same happened to me, then when they did EC we got 4 eggs they all fertilised and we got Joe.
Now we dont want any more negativity, just positivity, god just swallowed a dictionary.
Seriously i am at the end of the phone whenever you want to chat again. This has to be the one for you.

Mel and Tony I know we spoke but i am so pleased for you both. Just Mr. Tony you make sure you pamper your woman to bits. And Mrs Mel make sure you rest, and enjoy giving jobs to Tony. he may have produced super sperm but thats all he has done, as for offering it :eek: well i will say no more.

Nico Good luck for ET tomorrow hope every thing goes ok for you, i am sure it will.

GOOD LUCK to everyone else on this thread.

Love Kim :-* :-* ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Sue - really sorry to hear that you've had to make such a hard decision today. Definitely think you've made the right decision though. Will keep everything crossed for you for Monday.

Nico - good luck for tomorrow

Lind - sorry to hear that you are finding this so hard. The Puregon pen is really not that bad after the first few days. I actually prefer to do it myself then I'm in control of what is happening. If it hurts a bit then I just stop pressing until it doesn't hurt.

Mel - see you over on the other board! Congrats!

Sophie
