New Home! ;D

Emma - welcome over and good luck!

Zoe - many congrats to you and your hubs on your positive news! ^reiki^ Congrats!!!! ;D Don't worry about keeping your mouth shut, just think it's good news!

Jani - so sorry that it was confirmed as neg today ^Cuddle^ To get the icon's when you click the reply button to the left of where you type in the box is a drop down menu, possibly a picture and then "view all smilies" if you click on the view all smilies you can see them all, click on them and add them to your message! ;D Enjoy the exotic holiday, you deserve it (and you don't have to leave the thread if you don't want to!)

Sarz - so sorry that you've had a hard day today, it's very hard when you get a neg (been there too many times) and you have to try and be "normal" for people when all you want to do is let the tears flow. Just please remember it isn't over until the old witch arrives and fingers crossed she doesn't.

Vonnie - no way was that your af that early! Sorry it's mild ohss (does sound like it) but they are keeping an eye on you and it could be promising news! Have a look at this thread http://www.fertilityfriends.co.uk/*********/index.php?board=27;action=display;threadid=8923 which may explain more to you about OHSS BUT please drink lots of fluids as this will help otherwise your body can become dehydrated.

Clare - sorry the news from your hospital regarding your extra embies wasn't encouraging for you...... AF pains at the stage you are at - are not AF pains - please remember with that many eggies you would have been poked and prodded about and then ET on top all makes things very uncomfy. You're not selfish about your SIL's pgy, we all deal with stuff differently. Is there any way you can get some breathing space from your MIL?

Rachel and Sonia, thinking of you and good luck for your tests!

Hi all
I'm not sure about posting on here, I don't know if its a bad omen, not you, but.............. you know what I mean!!


I had iui on wednesday and am due to test on the 2nd of June!! Thats the first time I have thought about that!!! OMG!!! Maybe I shouldn't have mentioned that, maybe that will be a bad omen too!!! ( here I go again!! sorry!) :-X

I am trying not to think about the 2ww, I have 2 degree assignments to be handed in the day after the test day so I am hoping they will take my mind off waiting, I know I am fooling myself, thats why I am typing this message and not the the assignment!!! :-\

Good luck to all of you
I will pop back if I don't feel like the black cloud is above me!!! (sorry!)
love from
Oink ^pig^

Murtle & Lawra, so sorry it wasn't this time! ^group^ ^group^ take care of yourselves.

Sarz, try not to read into those symptoms (easier said than do). I didn't feel any different and got a BFP. Thre is still hope, honest! take it from me - Ms Paranoid. ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^


Can't believe how many people have posted on here last couple of days. Good luck to all due to test. ^fairydust^ ^fairydust^ ^fairydust^

i'm off to Anglesey for a week, so catch up with you ladies when I get back. Then I might move to the bun in the oven bit.

love anastasia xx

Thanks to everyone for your concern and kind words.

Sue the websites are really helpful as this is my only way of getting info out here.

I now think my hospital are on the ball and taking no chances with OHSS cases, which is very comforting.

Today - no pain, no bleeding. Everything seems back to normal. The feet are now going to stay off the ground as much as possible for the next few days, just in case there still is a chance for me.

Good luck to everyone still waiting. Have a great weekend.

Hi Girls

Thanks for all your lovely messages, I am feeling a lot better now. I had a great birthday, really enjoyed seeing all my friends and having a drink or two.

Not sure what we are going to do next, might get a free go on the NHS but I'm really not sure about staying with our hospital as it hasn't worked so far! I'm worried that we are not giving ourselves the best chance. Anyone got recommendations for London, we found the ARGC very grumpy!! but what the hell, I guess - if it works!!

CONGRATS to all with positives, big hugs to all the girls like me

Ansie xx

Vonnie - glad to hear that the bleeding has stopped now - that is a very good sign ;D Yes rest heaps. Still hoping for the bfp for you :)

I am on Cycle Day 8 (CD8) (Angie this means it is 8 days since I had my IUI) so over half way there. Boobs still very sore but they have been for about 10 days so not taking any notice of that.

Off on hols on Monday so will catch up with you all on my return. Hope to see lots of bfps ;D

All the best

Jenny

Hi 2wwers

Can I climb into the bottom?

After ICSI I had two day 3 embies returned this morning, one 8 call and one 6 cell. I hope they are feeling at home!

I have been given a test date of 2 weeks after egg collection - 2 June. Is that right? Clare25 I see your test date is 3 June but you had ET a couple of days ago. mmmm confused of Bedfordshire.

Anyhow, the sooner the better I say. Wishing us all ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Love Nicnack ;D

Hiya all

Glad ET went well nicknack - good embies ^jumpin^ ^jumpin^ ^clapping^!!

I am confused re:test date as well. Everywhere/one seems to be different ---- i was told 16 :eek: :eek: days after, ET being day 1. I dont want to wait that long, i dont know why they have said that .... maybe to be sure of a true result as i will not be going to the clinic for a blood test, they have send us off with a kit! ^chuckle^ I have got to put 3 drops of wee on the stick with a pipett thing!!

Anyway take it easy and lets hope we have a good couple of weeks without going loopy ^confused^

Ansie - I can recommend the Lister in London - they have excellent results and the consultants are really friendly. I went there after being given the run-around at NHS hospitals - definately worth it!

Good Luck

Hiya

Clare - glad your dh is speaking to his mum ;) should take the pressure off you!

Oink - welcome!!!!!! ;) and good luck with the degree assignments AND the 2ww!

Anastasia - enjoy Anglesey!

Vonnie - glad you found the websites helpful! Just take it easy though.

Ansie - glad you had a good birthday, just hope you are bearing up. Like Ange, I had my tx at the Lister....... totally comfortable there. The good thing with them is that they test for immunology stuff too!

Jennifer - hope you have a wonderful hols! Where you off to?

Nicnack - course you can climb in here! Those embies are brilliant! ;)

Re testing - as a general rule of thumb! ;) You shouldn't test before your test date that you are given as they are normally given for a reason. However, if you are tempted to test early, 10 days past transfer date the hcg shot you have should be out of the system but whether the hpt shows a positive may not be clear at that stage.

With IVF/ICSI when they know that an embryo has been replaced, they generally state 14 days after a 2 or 3 day transfer. If the transfer is a blastocyst transfer some clinics still ask you to wait 14 days but at the clinic I'm at they say 10 days past transfer (the embryo is at a further stage by the time replacement is done, so theoretically implants quicker).

With IUI, it can be 14 days but sometimes 16 to allow for the difference between IVF/ICSI and IUI.

I hope that helps!

Love Sue

Hi there,

I am new to the site & hope you don't mind if I join you all here?

I had my second IUI on 14th May and am due to test on the 28th, so am half way through the 2ww. I feel just the same as last time so one minute I feel quite positive and the next I have convinced myself it hasn't worked...

Just wish I could stop thinking about it & analysing every little twinge.

Hope you don't mind me butting in. Lots of luck to you all.

Minkey - welcome to you ;D I am due to test on the 29th (was supposed to be the 28th but I am on holiday then as I go on holiday to Morecambe Bay on Monday to Friday). Like you I swing from being sure it has worked to being sure it hasn't. The second week of the 2ww is much harder than the first week isn't it. Oh well, this time next week it will all be over for us one way or another :eek:

Best wishes

Jenny

Hi there,

Is it just me, or are other people waking up at the crack of dawn each morning?

Most this week it has been about 5am! I am not in any pain, so why is that?

Hi everyone

Not been on here for a few days. I went for my blood test on the 21st at 8 am and had to wait until after 3pm to get the results. When I got home I started to bleed a bit so thought it was all over and prepared for a negative result. I rang after 3pm and to my surprise they said it was positive. ^spin^

I have to go back tomorrow for another blood test to make sure that everything is still ok. They said to rest over the weekend and that if I am losing it at this early stage it won't make any difference what I do. It hasn't sunk in yet as I'm not wanting to get my hopes up but at least I know I can get preg.

Congratulations to all the other +ives out there and sorry to them who it has not worked for this time.

^banana^ Congratulations Rachael!!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that you get another positive when you test again tomorrow. You and DH must be so pleased. The sun is shining, put your feet up, relax and get DH to pamper you!!

Good Luck!
