Hi all,

Just a quickie to say I'll be at the Lister around 10.30 tomorrow morning for my consult with the lovely Dr Wren and I'll be wearing my bright ORANGE scoubidou bracelet - no prizes for guessing what that's all about! ;D So if you you're there too (Claire?) and see me, feel free to say ^hello^

Lol
F xx

ps. BTW Sarah, we always park in the Battersea car park too - at £1 an hour it's not a bad price for London, and it's cheaper, easier and safer than the train!

Hi Y'all.....

Sarah + Freddie - hope your apts go ok
Nuala - how did your EC go??
Dianne - I'm rooting for you for tomorrow  ^spot^
Claire - hope your sniffing etc. is going OK. God I hated that stuff....
Natrlie + Spirit - hope you're OK????
Hello to everyone else - Fergie, Sue, Dissyissy, Ange. Hope you are all well????

I'm on for FET on Sat morning. Hoping this one works, otherwise it'll be straight onto a fresh cycle (assuming I'm not an emotional wreck of course).  I've got a consultation with ARGC mid-Sept, but have decided that if this FET doesn't work, I'll stick with Lister for the next one so I don't have to wait around, plus given comments from Dissyissue + Freddie on ARGC, I'm not sure if they're for me.

Dear All

EC yesterday was a much better experence than last time Ange (no delay) went down on time met my consultant Dr Wren before i was put to sleep although meet Jaya Parkih did consent as her list,( she was so lovely) bit of a long time in theatre as had to apply hard pressure on abdomen as mobile left ovary hard to locate to drain follicles (glad i was told this as i would have been wondering why i am sooooo sore today!!!!!!

I was in Starbucks by 2pm as planned drinking my skinny capaccino although the ward sister was reluctant to let me go home alone after GA on train and tube i did not mention i have to drive at the end of the journey
i managed to convince her i will be ok and this is my choice etc will keep quiet next time.

7 eggs collected tel call today 5 fertilised but sperm problems with one ^sperm^( Rugby playing 6ft 3 large muscular frame donor ) i will forgive this one so 4 embryo may have ET tomorrow booked for 1pm but will depend on action over night as may delay until friday

Hope everyone else is ok Hi to Sarah Natrlie, Ange, Caz, Ambar Dissyissy Jake

Hi Everyone,

Tobyleroni:  Good luck for FET Saturday ^dancing spot^ ^fairydust^ 

My EC with Dr. Wren on Monday went very well. I was a little sore but recovered quickly. From 4 follies (2 were too small) they got 4 eggs.  All 4 fertilised ^sperm^  without ICSI which was fab.  Went back yesterday 3/8 for ET.  One little embbie hadn't made it through the night got tired and stopped dividing.  Another was doing well but a bit weak.  The other two went start to the top of the calss with gold stars on ^banana^ ^banana^.  Had all 3 transferred so am now walking around talking to them!!

Dfuller: Glad to hear yesterday went well except you feel like you've been mauled in a rugby tackle :eek:  I know what its like to have to leave hospital on your own and even though you're really brave about it it takes lots of courage so sending you a big hug ^Cuddle^  thinking of you and good luck for the next few days with your ET.

Freddie:  Hope today goes well with the lovely Dr. Wren - she's great.  I also parked in Battersea Park its really easy and there is always space.

Best to all the other Lister girls - I'm now on the 2ww board.

Nuala ^2ww^ ^pompom^ ^pompom^ ^sunny^ ^sunny^

Hi all

Scan was fine today - ovaries quiet - right ovary had one cyst but Jaya said it was just clear fluid apparently, and lining nice and thin so I have started stims today. My dose has been put up since last cycle and now on 3 amps of menopur.

I'm  ^banana^ to be on half-sniffs at last!!

Just got home and did my first injections - felt far more "momentous" this time than the first last time iykwim. Kinda dawns on you that its not only yourself that you're doing this for but the recipient too and that they are counting on you to produce plenty of follies/good eggs. Made it hard to do tonight - bit strange but all done now.

Next scan is on Wednesday to check follies.

Good luck to all the other sniffers and stimmers and to those coming up for e/c and e/t

Babydust to all

Claire xx

Hi ladies

Wow- we have more action round here right now.

Dianne- you really are a quick mover. Well done on the embies, hope they continue to do well and good luck for ET.

Nuala- well done on on having 3 safely on board. Hope the 2WW doesn't drive you too mad.

Tobeyroni - good luck for FET on Sat

Hello to Freddie, Claire, Spirit, Caz, Ambar, DissyIssy, Jake and Natrlie

Well, I had my first scan this morning (at 6+3) and all is well- one little wriggler, 6mm long with a lovely fluttery heartbeat. Another hurdle over. But I don't think I'll start to relax until I get past 12 weeks and the nuchal tests are OK-we lost a baby at 9.5 weeks before, just as I was starting to relax.

Hope you are all doing Ok.

Fergie

Evening ladies
WOW!  You guys have been a busy bunch. Turn my back and look at you lot go!
Fergie-well done for leaping over 1st scan hurdle; but understand 100% of your desire to see that 12 week one. Stay positive!
Freddie - I'll be at Lister tomorrow, but not til 12 o'clock but we might cross paths if I'm early and docs running late??  Will dig out my orange ribbon again, although I'm sure we'lll recognise each other!
Claire - good luck with the stimms and grwoing follies  :)
Dianne - hope tomorrow is the day for you.  I'll send division messages across the airwaves ^reiki^
Nuala - good luck on the 2ww with your bundle
Spirit -  ^Cuddle^
Tobleyroni - wishing you luck for Saturday's transfer ^reiki^
Sarah - welcome to the Lister thread ;)
Caz - hi Caz.  Sorry to hear about the ACA's.  I think they'll suggest aspirin and heparin - I'm still on aspirin but my ACA's returned to normal last cycle so i was spared the heparin (but its really Ok though).  Pleased you had a good holiday.
Ange - hope DH course of antibiotics does the trick.  Spain sounds exciting.
DissyIssy -  ^hello^
Sue - sorry to read your tag note hun.  Hope you're ok?
Jo - glad your bump is growing and you sound glowing.  Still smile when I think f your success ;D

Been busy trying to keep my mind off the obvious but decided that we'd transfer 2 frozen embies from Bourn Hall (from 2003) to have a go at FET with the Lister next week.  YEP!  Next week.  A bit in denial again as our last 4 embies from Bourn in 2003 failed to survive thaw, but decided that we'd go for it before we saved up for our next cycle with the Lister in the autumn.  Been a bit mad as there is quite a bit of liaison, paperwork and phone calls and couriers to organise and that's before I know how I'm doing (find out tomorrow as I am fairly close to ovulation me  thinks!) As I said, we are not getting our hopes up but at least we will not have to pay for their bed and breakfast in Cambridge next year ;D

Love to all

Hi Ladies

Thank you Dianne, Sue, Jake, Fergie and others for your kind thoughts + best wishes.  FET went well today.  #1 didn't survive the thaw, #2 now safely on board + #3 still in the freezer.

Dianne - so glad your ET went well + well done on the orange T-shirt (hope you wear this every day!).  I had on my lucky orange socks, my lucky orange knickers and my lucky orange T-shirt.  Unfortunately the only trousers that were clean were pale pink - believe me, this was not a good look  ;D ;D  - hopefully the ensemble will bring more luck than last time... ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Nuala - hope all's well in your 2ww.  Hoping that we have a spate of positive news on this board soon. 

re: Dianne's problem with her appointment not being in the diary - has anyone else had this problem?  I had both a scan appointment and a Dr consultation which both disappeared.  Don't know if they're just really busy, or have a problem with the system.

Good luck for FET next week Jake - the transfer sounds like a bit of a nightmare

Fergie - such a relief to see the heartbeat.  Know what you mean about not being able to relax yet but try to take it easy.

Hello to Claire, Ange, Spirit, Sarah, Caz, DissyIssy - hope you're all well

Hi Girls

Sending loads of  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ to Dianne, Nuala and Tobyleroni, take it easy.

Jake,  ^afro^ with you FET this week, I have everything crossed for you.

Fergie wonderful news on your first scan  ;D

We are all fine, had first consultation at the hospital, hopefully we are in the process of buying a house as our top floor flat with no lift will be a bit of a struggle!!!

To everyone else, hope you are all well sending  ^fairydust^ to where ever you are.

Take care
Ambar xx
