where are you heading on holiday? eh ours could be quite wild going to magaluf with 3 other couples, very excited just going to totaly have a blow out, got quite alot on up till then so alchohol consumption might be high, i have tryed 3 cycles being very limited and have got me know where so taking another aproach, i dont mean drinking while im having tx or owt like that just leading up to it!! sep seems so far away, im totaly ready to go again but have made my choices now so might as well enjoy them.
where are you having your treatment? did you say its your first?
We're going to America for a few weeks in the sunshine. Can't wait!!!!!! Yep it's our first treatment. DP had the dreaded vasectomy years ago and now we're trying to get around it! Going to the GCRM in Glasgow which seems to be doing well at the moment. Lots of lovely BFPs on Glasgow Girls thread anyway. What about you?
We are hoping to start again around September/October time, but this time we are going to go to IVI Alicante in Spain. As we have a holiday home about 40 minutes away from there. That is where we are going in 5 weeks time for 2 weeks - yippee. I used to be on the March/April Cycle buddies but after my BFN I felt it was no longer for me although I do pop onto the thread now and again to see how they are all doing - majority of them have got their BFP's and are mostly talking about pregnancy symptoms. Which I was getting upset initially as I hoped I would be one of those with the BFP.
Anyway hope to get to know you and others who are going to start their treatment in the months of September/October time.
forgot there i was posting on here ha ha. im at the glasgow royal. where do you stay jj1980? im down in lockerbie so im travelling up all the time. think my car knows its own way!
america sounds nice, id like to add that to my have done list, so you will need to tell me all about it!
hello sonia welcome, nice to meet you. how many cycles have you had chick? i have never had a fresh transfer, have always had medicated transfers. looking at transfer round start of sep, im excited again, dont think i have any tears left just now!
well of to watch big brother, im not sure if im going to be alowed to watch it dh hates it ha
Hoping to start cycling in September and feeling the same way about wanting to be involved. I have a feeling the summer will really drag for me. Just want it to be September and be starting treatment. We are off on holidays next week so that will be a distraction. I have a son who will be 3 in September, from a successful IVF in Dec 2004. We are going to give it another shot before I turn 40 next year and hope for the best. I know we are so very blessed to have ds but the need and longing for another child is still very strong. This will by my third IVF treatment, the first one was negative so dreading the thought of trying to pick myself up again if it isn't successful but think I would regret it more if we didn't try again.
We are starting out third tx cycle in september. DR in August. Am also really keen to start the whole process as we have had a gap in between treatments as the whole IF thing was dominating my life for a while so I went to uni to train to be a midwife (I know that sounds mad!!!) Anyway am at the end of the course now, I finish in a months time and can concentrate on my dream to be a mum again (DD aged 11, concieved naturally - dont know how!!)
I am also planning a holiday before tx starts and am going to let my hair down and relax beofre starting the whole emotional rollercoaster again, this is a completely different approach than I had before. I cant wait to get going and am feeling quite positive this time, although I think all the travelling is going to be tiring as going to a new clinic this time and the clinic quite a distance from home but heard lots of good things about ARGC, so hope its worth it.
Of course you can join the thread!!! You don't need to ask! It's great that there are more people as keen as me to get going and I'm not the only impatient one!
We've got our appointment with urologist tomorrow to discuss surgical sperm retrieval. I am so worried that we might not even get any sperm and then I'll be devastated. At least if we get past that hurdle and our first treatment doesn't work then we can try again but if there's no sperm there we're knackered and our baby dream will be over.
Yay! There are lots of us now!!! We'll need to think of a name for us like some of the other cycle buddies have!
My appointment was ok on thurs. Just a general chat to talk through the options. MESA is looking the best (and unsurprisingly the most expensive!) option so hopefully get that done in August. Got my AMH(?) level blood test done so will get the results next week.
Hello can I join your group? I'm about to start my first ivf and could do with some support but beware while I was on clomid I was
. he he
A little about myself & DH have been together for 7yrs trying for 5 yrs. DH,37yrs is OK,myself 35yrs. during my previous treatment at North Devon I was on clomid and hated it, had loads of issues, bleeding, pain, weight gain, moods I was told my tube were fine, after suffering for over a year I moved to Trelise Hosp were they found I had endo, blocked tubes,large choc cyst and hydrosalpinx, so after having a few ops to sort it out I'm about to start my first ivf journey.
So it would be lovely to share our journeys together, the laughter and tears( hopefully not too many) xxx
Well one week to go until our holiday in Spain for 2 weeks. Just found out my friend who went to menorca a few weeks ago, bought me a fertility quartz and everytime i saw her she kept saying i must bring you that quartz so she put it in her handbag so she wudn't forget and i havent seen her for a short while. Anyway, she texted me saying that the fertility quartz does work, she was a week late with her AF, so she tested and it was positive. I replied congratulations.
I hope there is still some power left in that quartz for me - hey girls.
Thanks Heffalump! Am sure your help will be required at some point!
Sonia - We go on hols a week on Tues. Can't wait!!! Mind you DP just back from a week long golfing trip to Turkey so he's not so fussed. I'm making up for it with my excitement! Hope the quartz works! Maybe I should get me some of that.
Barnstaple - You've had a bit of a hard time so far. Hope things look up for you this cycle.
