First to post!  :)

Hi girls. Had my second u/s today. Went okay. Had a lady this time which was nicer but the Dr accidentlly looked in the mirror and saw my wobbly bum when I was changing (I could see him) - embarressing! 

Lining: 8.3mm
Right: 26, 23, 16 & 16mm = 4
Left: 28, 17, 15 & 12mm = 4

So eight good follies in total. I have around 4 more small ones. They have moved my ER date to Tuesday now at 12.15 pm (triggering at 15 mins past midnight on Sunday - better set the alarm I think!). Might give the smaller ones a chance to catch up.

Nicky - Wont be seeing you there on Wednesday then as ET will now be Thursday. Hope it all goes well though!

Hi girls, Oh wow we have a new home.... yippeeeeee  ^banana^
I guess the other one was getting a bit long..... too many pages!

Ky - good news about your follies, I'm happy for you babe, I hope all goes well with the egg collection? How have you been finding the injections? Honestly? Do I really need to be getting myself in a state? Do they hurt? Sorry for all the questions, its just that I'm really scared  :-[
Also another question for you... What happens if you have the nasal spray & after sniffing it you then sneeze, does that mean you have to sniff again? I know it may seem a bit of a silly question, but I was sitting thinking about it the other night  ???
Anyway hope you are having a good weekend, hope to hear from you soon, take care, nicky xxx

Rachel - thanks for the new home xx

Hey Nicky  ^wave^

Honestly the injections aren't so bad. Ive done 45 in total (last one tonight to trigger). You wont need so many as you will be sniffing. One of the nurses, Angela, said she had never seen a reaction like mine in ovr 9 years of working there so Im sure you wont have a problem. The shots use teeny needles and you will hardly feel them, promise!

Re: sneezing. I did sneeze once or twice but I pinched my nose when I did just in case. They prefer you not to but it does irritate your nose. Dont worry - they will go over this stuff with you on Wednesday.  ^twitch^

It's DH's birthday tomorrow. He is having to work now as he reschduled his days off for ER and ET and they cant really spare him any more.

I have to come over to E/B in a bit - my mum is taking up my b'maid dress and then we are having dinner with MIL & FIL.

We had some viewings on the house again yesterday but no bites still. Guess I have plenty else to occupy me at the moment anyway  :)

Hi girls. Thanks for thinking of me today!

All eight follies had an egg in them. I feel pretty sore, bloated and tired so this is just a quick post. Tom's count was around 25 million so we are hopeful some will fertilise.

We will find out around 11am tomorrow morning so fingers crossed until then.

Nicky - Have fun at the meeting tomorrow!

Ky xxxx

hi Barts ladies

I am starting icsi treatment at barts in Aug and it will be our first attempt I was hoping you could tell me about the facilities there and what the staff are like. Also what are the bad bits to expect from the treatment? I have looked into it loads but was woundering if you would mind sharing your experinence. sorry for all the questions  ^gossip^ but could use a little advice and reasurrance.

I have also noticed one of you also live in brighton so do I and i have been going to a new support group here which has been fantastic we drink lots of tea eat cake (organic of course) and help each other along but no one in the group is at Barts so any tips would be gratefully recieved.
:)

thanks all and good luck to all of you who are having treatment at the moment  ^reiki^

Morning girls. Good news! We have FIVE embies!!!!!  :)

Im so happy. All eight actually fertilised but three were abnormal (they think two sperm entered). They are putting two back tomorrow and if the other three continue to look good they will freeze them.

We were so emotional this morning - DH was convinced it wouldn't work and just looked so happy and relived when I held up my hand during the call to show how many.
But here we are with five little jelly-blobs sitting in a petri dish in London trying their best to become our babies. God, its so scary and exciting!

We had to tell our families as I can no longer go on my sister's hen weekend on Friday & will be going into cotton-wool mode for a week or so now.  They are going back in tomorrow at 10.30.....  ^daisy^

Frances - I live in Brighton! (Woodingdean actually). Whereabouts are you? The ladies at Barts as soooo nice. Its clean and smart too and although you sometimes have to wait around a bit they have a TV (normally showing This Morning). I really cant fault them.

Hi Girls - Just thought I'd drop in quickly to let you know that the session went well  :)  I start sniffing on Monday  :eek:  I have to go back for baseline scan on the 14th June, so I'm sniffing for about 3 weeks!
Ky- good luck for the egg transfer... Good news on the embies, you must be thrilled?  I am so nervous about starting the sniffing, I know it sounds silly, but I'm worried in case I mess it all up  :-[  Did you feel like that? Or is it just me being silly?
Hope to chat soon, take care, nicky xx

Hi girls - yes Im taking it easy LOL - we have a wireless access laptop :)

So happy today. All five embies are Grade One! We transferred a 4 cell and a 3 cell today and are able to freeze the other three :)

They had to do the transfer twice as the first time one of the embies stayed in the tube (the nurse said that one must be the boy LOL) and when the Dr put it back in again he said ''go in & stay there - for nine months''.

Feel so good about it all. I have two perfect embies in me and three more in the freezer just in case. Life is good. Now the hell of the 2ww.....

Kyla
xxxxx

PS: Nicky - Dont worry about the sniffing. You will get a nasty taste in the back of your throat which lets you know you did it right! Good luck! Not far behind me - would be so cool to be PG together!!!!!!

Evening Ladies, How are we all today?

Ky - I'm so pleased you are feeling good  :)  Its great to hear you have good embies transfered.... I can't wait to get to that stage!!
When I went to the pharmacy to collect my drugs, I only got the synarel as my blood test results were not received from my local hospital  :mad:  Although they did say that I could get them when I go for my baseline scan, so I hope to god that they get the results by then  ??? (its all a big worry)

Anyway Hun you keep me posted on how you are getting on, & I will probably be posting you a lot for help & advice  ;D
take care, nicky xx

HI

I have my first consultation at Barts on 24 Aug, with hopes that IVF starts beg Sept or Oct.

What's it like there?  I have been at the Nuffield Tun Wells, and am worried about getting back on the NHS rollercoaster again.

From my chat with them, they say that they will start completely again and afresh.

we just have to keep playing the waiting game now but time will go so quick hopefuly

Hiya

I am new here and I also attended my information sessions last weds (18th May). I started sniffing today, it was OK, not as bad as I thought it was going to be.

All the staff at Barts and very nice and friendly, although I have had nothing but problems with them since I have been going there (since last Sept - as have had miscarriage in between time). I am hoping that my probelms are a one off, but something always goes wrong each time I visit or give them a call, so I am hoping that all goes well from here on in.

Be good to chat to anyone.

Good luck to all.

Heidi

Hi Girls, hope you are all well?

Kyla - Hope you are feeling OK? I guess you are anxious to get to the end of the 2ww? Hope to chat with you soon Hun, take care xx

Ronnie - Good to hear from you Hun, how are you doing? When do you have your appointment? I can't remember  ^idiot^
Anyway keep us posted xx

Bonniface - welcome to the Bart's chat, good luck with your appointment in August, the time will fly past, it did for me!

Heidi - I also had my info session at Bart's on the 18th, we were probably sitting near each other? How weird is that? I start sniffing tomorrow (Monday) Well by the time you read this I would have already sniffed for the 1st day... How did the sniffing go for you? Nasty taste? I'm really nervous :-[ I will probably be fine once I have that initial sniff! Hope to chat soon xx

Hope you other girls are all doing well, take care xx
