Have spoken to dh about drinking have decided to let him have four drinks xmas day is this reasonable??
Em75 sorry about yr cyst- nasty things, never had one myself for which I am eternally grateful, january for you then so we could be cycle buddies!
I have picked up a bug I think, had diarrhoea x8 yesterday followed by one episode of vomitting. Felt better after that but lacked energy. Thought I'd feel ok today but no! I now feel dizzy, have lower back ache and have started to feel nauseous again! Hope to be feeling better soon as don't want to be bad for xmas
Hope everyone is ready for xmas as I am not and this bug is just putting me back even further!
Everyone all set for tomorrow? It will be chaos won't it? My wheelie bin is already full without all the wrapping paper to add to it tomorrow.
Have to say my bug is still hanging around in small doses. Just feel queasy on/off at certain times of day and burping a lot. Hoping for a christmas miracle if you know what I mean Knowing my luck it'll be something like a stomach ulcer!
Anyway hope you all have a good chrsitmas and a happy new year.

Im new to this site,I never really know where to post?.My dh and i also have secondary infrtility which is something I never thought would happen to me,you always think these things happen to other people.....,We already have a 6yr old little girl ..concieved without trying.....and have been trying for the past 3 yrs at least,for no 2.
In the past 2 years we have actively sought tx,done tests etc....did 3 iuis with clomid and injectibles all which turned out neg,then decided to move onto ivf,which we did in june 04.Our doc did half ivf and half icsi and none of the ivf fertilised and all of the icsi did...WE had 16 eggs,lost 7 through ivf so left with 9....at least we found the reason we were not getting pregnant!!.
3 day 3 grade a embies were put back and amazingly I got pregnant ,I was on such a high but sadly it wasnt meant to be....after seeing the heart beat at 6 weeks ,my 9 week scan then showed nothing,I was so heart broken ,to be given our dream and then have it taken away ,it felt like a cruel joke and I felt like the world was against me!!!(How do people go through loosing more than one baby)
Since then We have done a F.E.t which was neg and at present I am down regging for my next i.c.s.i and feeling a bit crapy....had scan xmas day to see if I was ready for stims but uterus was still 6mm and he wants it to be 4mm so its now my 3rd week since my decapeptyl inj and starting to get headaches etc.The funny thing is my period has stopped so I dont understand how my lining will get thinner.
Im now beginning to wonder whether we should have waited a little bit longer before doing this icsi as Im feeling so down the whole time and really negative.I know my husband would like another child but I dont feel that he is affected by all of this as much as me..sometimes all I want to do is cry and cry and cry!!Im living abroad and have friends here but know you cant understand unless your going through it ,..the funny thing is, 2 of my friends are pregnant and the other one has just had a baby boy 8 weeks ago,and my sister has just announced shes pregnant....Sometimes I feel like Jumping into a hole and never coming back out.....(Im really feeling sorry for myself arent I).
Just wondering if anyone of ye ever found speaking to an infertility counsellor etc ever helped ??.Sorry to be such a moan !!.
Heres hoping that 2005 will be a better year for all of us
I am new to this thread and hope u don'tmind me butting in
My DH and I are experiencing secondary infertility, or should I say I am. I have a ds who is 10 in march 05 from a previousrelationship. Amazingly I was only 16 when I fell pg without trying .
DH and I have been together for 7 yrs and married for 4 years next October. we decided to try for out 1st but my 2nd almost 2 yrs ago with no joy. I then found out that I have pcos in september 04 (now on 3x500mg metformin a day) and then had h.s.g in November and found out left tube completely blocked and they had a bit of trouble getting fluid through the right one but they did in the end (but they would have liked it to have been more)
So we are waiting for my appointment with my consultant on the 14 Jan to see were we go now. The only good thing that I have had so far is my AF usually come when they want (last natural one was April 04, provera induced Nov 04) but AF arrived by complete surprise on DEC 14th 39 days after Nov AF . so we are hoping that Dr may put me on clomid if this keeps up that is.
well thats my story I wish you all the luck on the world with your TX and I will keep you all informed of progress if that is OK i would love to here form anyone who is in the same boat I thought I was the only one going through s/i
Just a quickie to welcome the new ladies - hope we can offer some support - we're here for you whenever you want to chat,rant,cry, scream, ask for advice..whatever...
Wanted to thank you all for your support over the past year - let's hope all our dreams come true in 2005 eh?
Don't know about the rest of you but I've found this Xmas to be a VERY emotional one - maybe cos I'm so close to my family and the whole lot were here Xmas day, perhaps it's cos my little one is just getting into Xmas and at a very loving stage..but I keep finding myself welling up with love for her and gratitude that I've got her..closely followed by that pit of the stomach longing for a brother or sister for her.
All the very very best to you all - hope you had a wonderful Christmas and hope you all have a very happy, healthy and successful 2005!
Can I join this board?
Hope thats ok.
I have a ten year old son and have been ttc since he was one!
Have been thinking about trying IUI but don't know if I am brave enough,I don't want to live to regret what might have been!
Looking forward to getting to know you all xxx
Great to have you on board. Congratulations on the fab weight loss, if you don't mind me asking, what diet/eating plan did you use and how long did it take you. I am now beginning to accept that my problem is my weight, I think I've always know it, but never wanted to admit to it. I've had unsucesful tx in 2004, and I think that the weight just go in the way. So in 2005 I want to get rid of some of the weight and have have successful tx. Would love to hear the story of your success.
I started on IUI in November but had to abandon due to lack of response (me thinks weight although hossy have not said that), I was scared iniatially mainly because of the injections, but can honestly say after doing the first 2 myself I was fine. So I'd say if its an option go for it.
