Hi there

I'm due to test on Feb 9th - which as you can tell means I only had embryo transfer on Wednesday and already I'm going completely mad.
I'm going back to work next Wednesday (I'm a secondary school teacher - gulp!) so hopefully that will take my mind off it.

If anyone else is testing then or thereabouts, I'd like to hear from you

hi Poll,
I'm also testing on the 9th feb. I also saw ur post re: OHSS symptoms. I too have them, pain in my stomach and bloating. The clinic said to me I will get these OHSS symptoms coz of the number of follies I had - 20, but if I have any problems pasing urine or shortness of breath to call the emergency number. Other than that I've been told to rest and drink loads 3 litres a day of water. I'm trying to rest. Are u taking paracetmol for pain. My clinic said its safe to.
good luck for the 9th feb. I am a social worker but I don't think I can return to work yet with this pain.
love alimarxxxxx :)

Hurray - someone else who still has plenty of time to go mad with me!

It's so hard not to get paranoid about every aspect of this. My bloating seems less in the morning so...? Also - I don't have a very stable digestion at the best of times so trying not to read too much into it. Re: pain, mine is bearable mostly - just uncomfortable with occasional twinges that seem to pass quite quickly. I've been drinking a lot but that just makes me want to go to loo all the time - still lots there so I think that's okay. I only had 10 eggs but seven of them fertilised normally to become top grade embryos so I was pleased at that point.

I'm now decided that I'm going to stay put here on the sofa for a bit - because I don't feel too bad the temptation was to move too much too soon. I told school I might be off until to Feb 4th so even though I'd thought I'd be back Wednesday I'm going to play it by ear. They are being fabulously understanding. (My husband I think - thinks I should be up and about more but he's not said anything!)

Anyway I'm rambling now - complete inability to think about anything else I guess

Hi, I've just had my first iui and have to test on 9th.  Seems like AGES!  Don't hold out much hope as success rate is minimal, still it works for someone, so why not me?!
I'm a teacher too, primary kids, 5 and 6 year olds.
I'll try one more iui and then will hopefully start ivf, self funded, probably at bourn hall.  Best friend has 2 beautiful ivf children, went through all the heartache with her but have seen the really happy ending. ;)

Hi Poll,

I too have the 9th etched in my brain only mine is as a result awaiting FET of 2 embies which took place on the 23rd.
I haven't had any cyclogest this time as it has taken place during a natural cycle so any symptom's that I've had this time are not due to being full of drug's. I know exactly what you mean by being a nutcase though as I keep telling myself not to read to much into anything as I'll only head for another big fall as me & DH have already gone through 2 negative ICSI attempt's since 2003.
I've had sickness/nausea feeling's early evening a couple of times as well as feeling period like cramps but I seemed to get those for the 3 day's after FET.I've also noticed that when I go to the loo my urine is a very strong yellow shade as well.
I'm undecided at the moment as to wait until the 9th or do a pee stick on the 7th that's if nothing's happened by then because at least that way I think it will soften the blow if it is a negative.
I too am back at work and sorry to tell you but No it doesn't take your mind off it as much as you hope that it will, anyway hang on in there and let's hope that the 2ww is well worth it for us both on the 9th.

Fingers crossed

Lisa. :) :-* ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

Hi Alimar

So sorry to hear you're in pain. I don't feel too bad now - few twinges but nothing more.
Decided not to go back to work until Monday - I know I'd be on my feet all day, having to carry stuff and be horrible to annoying teenagers - just don't think my heart'd be in it until I know the embie(s) has either implanted or not - whilst they're still decided thought I'd be safer here. I don't want to risk a kid running into me around a corner or something either.

So

Take care and I hope you start to feel a bit better. Roll on next week

Hi, i am also a secondary teacher who has just had iui for first time -unexplained infertility.I didnt take time off although really wanted to but one of the members of my dept has been off for 3 months and i have been landed with her exam class of horrible 16 year olds!! More stress!! Doctor said there was no evidence that rest helped with iui. Am due to test on 7th Feb-so nervous. If BFN will try again and definitely rest up next time,

Good luck to all

Hi Irish Eyes
Nice tag!
How have your school been - or have you just said nothing? Mine have been soo amazing - I've only just started at this school (been teaching for years) and but til tell them in interview why I was 'downshifting'. Can't believe the support. Only told acting Head, Deputy Head (male) and my HoD but all have been great.

Best of luck for Mon's test. I'm going back to work on Monday (I figured they would have stuck or not by then) will be culture shock I think.

Anyway - just been finishing off lesson plans and some marking. What joy! Least it takes my mind of the rest of it.

Take care

Pol

Thanks thinkpositive for positive energy!!!  Hope everyone else is managing to keep sane. 
My school have been mega good too, bit hard to keep it quiet in primary, very obvious if you're not with your class, smaller staff too (not height wise of course!).  Had such bad cramps after iui had week off to recover, can't believe how stressed i got over iui, was adamant that i wouldn't become that amd kind of woman - must be the drugs!  Got brilliant head teacher who's used to crazy women!
Not long to go, here's to loads of BFPs!
Take care,
Jess x

Hello
I am on 13dpt on iui with clomid, and not sure when to test. I have no symptons to speak of, slight crampy pains on adn off last few days, a thick white discharge yesterday (sorry !) and a bit light headed.

Anyone else had these?

When would you test?

Lots of luck to you all.

Havent really told anyone in management- have said to two close friends who i know i can trust. Some teachers in school married to those in my husbands so we dont want it all over the show!!

Had intended to start treatment last year and then was made H.O.D which i really wasnt interesred in- not v. ambitious, just want to be a mum!! Then when we tried to start Oct time one of my dept went off sick- felt i had to postpone til last month. Quite stressed out which prob isnt helping.Any positive news??? Mine not here yet but feel it coming!!

Hi Irish Eyes
I did the opposite of you and 'downshifted' to be just a 'normal' teacher which has helped.

I've been told I have OHSS and feel pretty crappy but still returned to school today. I'm knackered now - not to mention bloated and in pain. Year ten were pretty vile as usual - sooo tempted not to go in tomorrow - lots of people (those in the know and not in the know) advised me to stay off some more judging by the way I looked.

ANyway - best of luck for Wednesday everyone.

Wishing you all good luck for testing on Wednesday!!

It's a bit wierd thinking of other people being in exactly the same boat, would be great to hear of a BFP.  Feel v much like AF on way tho. 
Got Parent's Eve tonight til 8.30 so at least won't be thinking about it all evening!

I was "Senior Teacher" in a brand new school but have given it all up as I want as little stress as poss, Head has been really good and will help me with career if I finally end up without kids - trying not to think about that yet tho!

Fingers crossed - it works for someone!

No sign of Af tho, still a bit tender.Jess urs was 24th but u r not testing til 2moro.Maybe mine was a bit early. Good luck anyway.

hi guys,
just did pg test in disabled loo at school!! BFN - gutted, knew i should have waited til i got home but just couldn't. Feel really tearful, just been in staff room where colleague who is 4 months pregnant is discussing her new nursery - made sharp exit to class room for a sob!!
It's crazy, even when you are 99.99999% certain AF is on way it's still heartbreaking to see that neg line.

Hope other people have better luck today, thinking of you all!
