Hi Girls,

I am trying to give myself ++ve thoughts and wondered if any of you are going for tx in May?

Maybe I am a bit early with this but I have been waiting so long for this moment to come and in some ways want af ^witch^ to arrive when due on Saturday (those nasty feelings are coming in and I feel groggy)!
My head is spinning! ^spin^

After many tears, feeling very un-well and mixed feelings, we have decided to go ahead and try IUI. ^sperm^ Looks like I will be stabbing around May 2 and I want to be ++ve to feel better in myself.

Love Lainexx

Hi Laine

I'm having another laparscopy next Tuesday and assuming they don't find anything horrible ( well anything else horrible that I don't already know about) then I'll be cycling in May. I think I'm going to do the short protocol this time so would be starting the drugs round about mid May so hopefully we can be cycle buddies ;D

I've started posting on the April/May board because there are more people over there so why don't you join me over there

Hopefully we can both help each other with the positive feelings. I seem to have misplaced mine at the moment!!!

Speak soon

thanks very much for your message. I really appreciate it.

When are you thinking of having another go. I guess we might be cycle buddies if it's May time assuming the surgeon doesn't find anything horrible wrong tomorrow

Speak soon

SueL your posts are always so good and long, you amaze me how you keep up with everyone, I feel like a real slacker latley. Not long till your holiday now, bet you cant wait. If you want any nice bikinis have you looked at Ocean Sports of Hove seafront? I went there on a spending spree on Sunday the bikinis are so gorgous I have chosen my red billabong one for my holiday in June. Yes I am going to Hove for my scans. Dont feel anything about this cycle just flat so I guess we will just see how it goes. I am still bleeding so this could be long and drawn out I feel....... :-\

Morning girls. Its a nice positive sunny one! AF came to visit me on Friday with a vengeance! I kepy crying all day for no reason. Its all this hormonal stuff I suppose. Never mind eh! Only 7 days to go til my first scan. My legs a bit bruised from the stabs but not too bad. Can't wait to get onto the Menopur.

My fridge packed up on Friday too, I've had to throw lots away, its only 15 months old (just outta guarantee). Should be fixed today tho'. Everythings in a cool box at the moment.

Hope everybody had a good bank holiday. Positives to all. ^spot^

Loads of luv. XXXXX

Hello - I'm still here!

Just been a little difficult to post lately - doing this one at work!

Hope you had a lovely Bank Hol! What great weather ^sunny^. Dh & I were invited to BBQs Sat, Sun & Mon, which has been great, no cooking or washing up for 3 days!! ^chuckle^

Like a lot of you Im full of mixed emotions too, weepy ^mercy^, snappy etc etc. Af due by the end of the week - thats the hormones for you! I was very snappy at my sister on Saturday ^furious^, which is not like me at all and felt really bad afterwards. She and my Mum are having an on going spat and I just felt caught in the middle and lashed out, I just dont have the emotional energy to deal with all that at the moment (could bang their heads together at times! ^smash^) as I need it for myself, which is selfish but thats what happens in this game.

Hellen, I have had a go at juicing things too but failed miserably with a carrot and apple zinger as I blended it instead, dont have a juicer at the mo, and it was disgusting yuk yuk ^puke^. Hubby thought I was trying to poison him. I really need to invest in one as I am spending a fortune at the supermarket on the ready-juiced stuff. Dh just thinks ok great another gadget in the kitchen. At this rate I could write a rap like Madonna, I have a blender and a chopper and a steamer and a mixer, ohh and a George Forman fat busting thing....but do you think Im satisfied? No because I need (want) a juicer! ^chuckle^ ^chuckle^

Golightly, many congratulations on your successful job interview! All the best for your scan. ^thumbsup^

Lou, glad to hear you had a lovely weekend. Arundel is a lovely spot to spend the day. Hope you are having great fun in your new wheels, be careful not to get caught trying out your 1.8 engine to it maximum potential, we have had loads of speed cameras put up around here. Got my first speeding fine in 16 years of driving in January doing 80 in a 70 zone, b* ^censored^ds!

Laine,hope that you are not feeling too bruised with all your stabbing, I think its nice that your hubby is involved too. Mine was keen to help but I preferred to do it myself, as I dont think he could have done it when it came to it. He had to sit down at our first scan because he was going to faint ^eyes^bless him, the Dr ended up being more concerned about him than me!

My badminton buddy is a really keen gardener and she has hardly any slugs in her garden because nearly every night in summer for the last 3 years she would be outside with her torch and a plastic bag picking them up, yuk yuk! But it seems to have worked. I think the word has got around in the slug kingdom and they are probably scared to lay even a single slimy trail in her garden!

Clare, welcome to the May pin cushions, look forward to exchanging news with you.

Shelley, hope you are well and had a good long weekend?

Lizzy, nice to hear that you and your Dh had a chilled out Bank Hol, thats the best way to spend them I think! Sending you lots of ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ for the start of your stabs!

Zoe, sorry to hear that your Af is being an old ^witch^. As its been said many times before when you are desperate for it not to appear it does and when you really want it to be here its not, just another ride on the emotional rollercoaster. ^jumpin^

SueL , yes I am at the Chalybeate, lovely bunch of people ^daisy^. All the best for your tx at the Lister (is that London?).

Kas, my Lexus is not an SC430, I wish, as 45 to 50K is a bit outside our price range! I have an IS200 sport, which is very yummy too ^cool^!

Dee,another one with green fingers! I bet your pots and baskets are going to look fab after all your hard work. I must admit we cheat and buy them already planted from the garden centre!

Babyroosta, Your fridge, what a pain in the ^shake^. Particularly on a Bank Hol weekend. My parents in law manage to claim for their ruined food on their home insurance when this happened to them. My MIL had only been shopping the day before and so the freezer was full

Gwyn, sorry that you are no longer with us but I will catch up with your progress on the June thread with Fionalk, Hellen and the rest of the girls. Sending you all lots of
^spot^

I'm really sorry if I have forgotten anybody. ^group^ to everyone!

Love
SamX

Hi
I'm wondering if anyone can shed some light on my situation.  I've just completed my 2nd IUI and today is my test day.  So far now AF hasn't reared its ugly face.
I wasn't aware that I needed to test first thing this morning.  I therefore tested early this afternoon.  I bought a double pack of Clear Blue pregnancy tests.  The first one didn't work properly.  The line that appears in the 'test completed' bit didn't really show, however a really faint line appeared in the result box.  Bing that I wasn't sure I did another test 1/2 hr later.  This too didn't work properly, the ink from the absorbed paper went everywhere. 
I therefore took the tests back to the chemist and replaced them with another lot.  To prove I wasn't going made the lady serving me, said she too could indeed see a faint line.
I couldn't wait to get back home.  Did my normal thing and unfortunately this time round 2 tests later, showed nothing.  Admitedly on each occassion I did wee in a container and not directly onto the stick - is this ok?
I'm also confused as to when my period is actually due.  So far this cycle is 37 days which is very long for me.  When the clinic's give you a test day, is this in fact the day your period is due? or are you due earlier?  A friend of mine once said that your AF is due 14 days after you ovulate - anyone know if this is true.
This cycle is really doing me in, I'm not the most patient person to start off with.  I'm therefore going to leave it tonight and test again in the morning.
I'm now starting to think that maybe I've delayed my AF mentally by thinking about it too much.
So sorry to waffle on but I'm so keen on hearing some friendly advice.  Has anyone else experienced this nightmare with fertility treatment. 
Thanks girls.
Ali.x
