Hi everybody,

I'm new on the forum, & new to IVF too. I am 42, no children and this is our first attempt at IVF. Out of 8 eggs 6 fertilised, and I had 2 8 cells & 1 7 cell embryos transferred on day 3. I haveone more week to go before I test and I am going nuts with anxiety, I am finding it so hard to remain possible. It seems almost impossible to get a BFP the first time, particularly in my age group... Is anyone out there in a similar situation?

Hi,
I'm not quite in the same situation except this is my first IVF treatment.  6 fertilised eggs is really good, i keep thinking it wont happen first time but the average is 3 go's so someone's got to do it first time as others take longer.  So why shouldn't it be you!
I had eggs harvested on Friday and hopefully ET on Wed but still feel like i'm sat waiting.  Waiting for a call every morning from the embriologist and hoping they make it to wed.
Good luck hope you get your BFP  ^reiki^
Try to keep positive, it could be you XXXXXX

Susan- thank you for your encouragement and positive vibes, I keep reading your message and try to hold on to it! Let us know how you get on with ET, all this waiting for the next step is nerve wracking isn't it?
All the best of luck xxx

Revols- yes the dreaded 2ww is torture! When do you test? Wishing you lots of luck and a BFP too! xxx

Mandy- good luck on the start of your journey, I know what you mean, once you have decided to do it, you just want to get on with it don't you? Try and use the time to prepare yourself physically and mentally xxx

Hi there my dates 12th Dec, seems like ages! Just glad we had the transfer on Fri before all this snow it would have been extra stress trying to get to the hospital. I also work in a school and its been closed this week due to the weather so Ive had more time to relax ( not that i think I ever do) lol
Hope all is going well with you, not many sleeps no - whats your date? ^hugme^

Hi Revols, yes the 12th of December must feel like ages away, I wish I could say it will go quickly but from my experience so far it doesn't! :(
I'm supposed to test this Sunday, but I don't think I'll even have the courage to do it... My boobs have suddenly stopped hurting and I have read on other forums from people who experienced this have had a BFN, so I'm preparing myself for the worst :(
Take care and keep warm! xxxxx

P.S: I meant to say I am also off work and trying to relax, but finding it near impossible... Maybe try and snuggle in in from of a good DVD if you like movies? I find this helps me to be distracted a little.
And as for lack of sleep, you are right, it's diabolical and I'm regularly awake at 4 am worrying about it all! Despite drinking gallons of chamomile tea, Aaarrgh!

Remember we can read too much! and it can send you mad  ^idiot^ Just try to keep a positive head ^reiki^ Easier said than done I know I talk myself in and out of it about 50 times a day. Its amazing how you find yourself analyzing everything you feel in your body. Good luck for Sunday x
