Hi, everybody,
thanks SueL for including me in the waiting list. thanks to everybody who gave me their best wishes...I've always felt like an outcast in the family get-togethers... coz we are the only couple without kids...
Still a bit depressed... Had the answering machine on for several days now and didn't feel like to talk to anybody else except DH.
It's a nice sunny day here in Brisbane... maybe I should cheer up and begin to prepare myself for the next cycle... (if I can drag myself out of the house)
GOOD LUCK to those who are still waiting anxiously for the BFP... ;)

:) Jaki dont worry, remember it only takes one embryo.

Orlando I know what you mean about being an outcast only I feel like that with friends.

I feel terrible but am really jealous of my best friend who is 23 weeks pregnant and of course caught straight away. She is due the week before I would have been had my last ISCI continued (initally positve test but bleed the next day). She is trying to be nice but cant help bubbling over with happiness and it makes me feel like a miserable old witch. She has moved down south now and we speak on the phone which is just about ok as I can pretend she isnt pregnant but she is coming up for the weekend next week and happily informs me she has a lovely bump now and her boobs are really big and the baby is kicking etc. I love her and somewhere inside am pleased for her but it just makes me cry after I talk to her.

It seems all my friends already have babies and now she is pregnant I am the only one left.

I dont want to be the grumpy one next weekend and cant even get drunk and pass the evening in happy oblivion as had ET 2 days ago.

Also I know this is abit gross but I am still worried re progesterone pessaries as it just seems to me they dissolve and come straight out when I use them vaginally. I have taken to getting up early and putting them in then going back to bed so am lying down for a while but how long is enough for them to get into your system. Any one have any advice

Sorry to be stupid but what do the kissing heads and heads with cross mean on the list? (I'm sure this answer was posted earlier but cant find anything)
Thanks

CG - I think the kissing heads are actually hugging - as in a comfort hug after a negative. The cross above the head denotes a plus sign - or a positive....i think. I have a question for you....what does BFN stand for? I guess it means a negative result, but not sure what the letters stand for.....I can make a guess but the only thing I can think of are 2 swear words followed by the word negative - and i dont think that is technically correct!!.......looks like we're both stupid!!!!

Megan,

BFN means Big Fat Negative
BFP means Big Fat Positive

You will soon get used to all the abbreviations,don't worry

Hi, there, CountryGirl,
thanks for anwering my post :D... with regards to progesterone pessaries... did ur doc prescribe 'Crinone' to u too? Mine comes in individual applicators and white creamy stuff... I was told by the nurse to walk around the house for 20 min until sweat (in winter?) so the uterus could absorb the med... but like u mentioned, the gel seemed to come out of my body straight away... Not even sure if the nurse was kidding with me ???... and still confused whether my uterus is actually getting enough dosage from all that dripping (soooory for being gross) :-[

Megan I think I like your version of what BFN stands for. I think that'll be highly appropriate for me if I get a BFN!

Country Girl. Yes I know what you mean. My best friend, whom we recently went on holiday with, spent almost the entire time talking about how she and her husband are starting a family after they get home. She'll fall easily as well because her family are all super-fertile! My neice is sixteen weeks pregnant and her mum (my sister in law) warbles on excitedly about the baby all the time. I sometimes just want them all to bugger off for a bit and leave me alone.
But then I can't be unhappy for them. They're just doing what I'd be doing if fate had dealt me a different hand.

Our time will come. We just have to think positive remember how much more joyful it'll be for us because we tried so much harder for our little miracles.

Welcome Emile and your super douper dividing embies. :D

Hi girls
i'm on the crinone this time as well. my clinic was using some other stuff but couldn't get hol;d of it so started using crinone and kept using it because they got some good results. Was getting on fine with it (compared to other versions of progesterone i've had) until about three days ago... and then it started to find its way back out... but to be honest i'm sure there's still enough left there to be doing the job its supposed to... Interesting how we all get different advice... i've been told to use it just before bedtime.

anyway hope you're enjoying your weekends

Kitty- hope you're OK?

Hi everyone,

Can I join you gals again? I was here last month..time has flown and so I"m back again on another cycle. DH and I just had our 5th IUI cycle. We're hoping for BFP, but not really counting on it (since it is our 5th time). IF this does't work, then the next step will be IVF or a laproscopy test (or something like that). So we'll see what happens when we test on July 1st.

Hope everyone's dreams come true!

Hi, Nic, Mez, and Megan, :D
Just checked my mailbox and found instant messages from u guys... thanks very very much for your kind encouragement *sob*
Family members including my mom have no ideas I am on IVF treatment... they presume me and DH are going to join the so-called 'DINK' gang... sometimes I feel I really need their support but the words get swallowed again... ::)
Nic, I sincerely hope I am as lucky as you are ;)... none of the OHSS symptoms come back so far... and no implantation spotting either~
Mez, another family dinner for me last night... I've learned to act on and put on a brave face... thanks for sharing your experience
Megan, the OBGYN specialist I was referred to (by the GP) runs a private clinic himself. So I went private right from the start and was not sure whether the public hospital offered such treatment ??? Service standards at the private clinic are pretty good... the staffs are really friendly and my appointments have never been cancelled... guess I can only whine about the doc being really busy and he can only talk briefly over the phone when I have questions... but sometimes he rings me back after hours to discuss further....
Sorry for taking up so much space... :p
Wishing everyone here a BFP!!!

Hi girls

Thanks for all your good lucks wishes etc. I tested on Friday and it was a negative. I was of course very very disappointed but was very ready for a neg as we had quite a poor quality fertilisation rate (50%) and the embryos that were transferred weren't high quality. The remaining 4 didn't make it to freezing. DH and I have accepted that this cycle didn't work and know from looking at tables of statistics that is fairly normal but we are a bit worried about the embryo quality issue and the implications for future cycles. My period has just started - a bit of staining although taking a while to get going. Suddenly wondered if it could be a late implantation bleed due to slow embryo development - but think I am clutching at straws - a negative is a negative!!! Sorry for all those others who got negatives - sending lots of good luck to those testing today and tomorrow.

Will probably duck out for a while now - we need to go back for a review consultation in a week or so and then hopefully will be able to start again.

Kx

Kitty, so sorry on your negative, thinking about you.

I am due to test tomorrow, have got to go for a blood test but really want to do a HPT today but DH won't let me. Might do it later without him knowing ;D

Good luck to everyone testing within the next few days ^fairydust^

Love Jill

Hi Gang

Kitty i'm really sorry about your result. Been thinking about you all weekend. Hope your appointment goes well. Take care buddie.

I'm getting increasingly paranoid and knicker checking like crazy. Have been very negative about things all week because my breasts have got less and less tender (presumably effects of the HCG jab prior to EC wearing off) but have started to get very up and down. Half expect AF to rear her ugly head on Tueday because i have a rather difficult video conference meeting scheduled. Have been trying to rearrange it but its then or nothing... will have to wait and see how it goes i guess.

sorry about that moan...

hope everyone else is holding up

take care

Hi y'all

Kitty I'm sorry this wasn't your time. You're sounding pretty pragmatic about it all. I wish I had your strength of character.

Wizz I'm just the same as you. I'm expecting AF to rear her ugly head too like the paranoid little madam that I am. Had AF like pains all day on and off today, but I know it's not AF because I don't normally get AF pain until AF has already made an appearance. Very confused! To add to it, my cat leapt on my tummy this morning and I got a painful paw right on my formerly tender ovary...now I'm all worried he's screwed it up for me.

It's official I. Have. Cracked. ^banana^

Completely climbing the walls. I'm feeling a lot better now after my little brush with OHSS. I never expected it to be like this. I keep thinking next time I'll know what to expect and then chastising myself for being negative and expecting a next time.

So right now I'm completely full of nervous energy. I've spent the entire last two days writing and drawing and doing absolutely anything to take my mind off what might be going on in my belly. I've decided to take the contents of my online journal and edit them together into some kind of book. Should make for some very interesting reading in years to come.

Today I had my first "I want to test now" urge. Yes I know it's totally pointless at this stage and I haven't even bought a test yet because I know I'd have used it by now but I'm simply not rational at the moment.

I think I might go chat to Petri and Chelsea some more.

Good luck for your tests kt1, Jill and Lou.

Hi everyone,

SuelL, thanks for the nice welcome. Good luck to you too.

KittyR, so sorry about your negative result. I know it's so hard. ^group^ You'll feel better once you have your consultation and get going again on another cycle.

Orlando66, that must be so hard going through this only with dh knowing. We have told very few people, but I have told my best friend who has been great. Also, my mother in law and I talk almost every day. She's so great and so supportive. Is there no female that you trust that you're comfortable telling? It really does help.

Wizz, I'm sorry you're not feeling positive about this time. WIth the meds (physical and emotional) this is all such a rollercoaster isn't it? Hang in there ^sunny^

JillAlan, good luck to you!

I'm on day 2 of 2ww. I'll actually be quite busy during the 2ww so I think that will help. Dh and I have even planned a 4 day vacation next weekend. It's our anniversary so we thought it would be good for us to get away.

Sending everyone ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^s

Caz, Wizz, I am with you. Feel very up and down - still got 5 days to go but it is soooo hard.....
