Post subject: Update
Its been a while since I've posted anything on here. Been going through a bit of a rollercoster ride but all going ok.
Had egg collection on friday and they managed to collect 3, 2 of which fertised so tranfer is booked for tomorrow.
Feeling really sore after the collection but everyone at the Chaucer is really helpful. Having a very lazy weekend trying to get body and mind ready for tomorrow and then for probably what will be the most stressful 2 weeks of our life.
Whole family has everything crossed and the knitting needles at the ready.
LOL to you all

keeping everything crossed for you Sue...very best of luck tomorrow x
We had our follow up appts on thursday and it has finally been decided that they dont think IVF is the right option for us as my FSH level is too high (julie woo - my GP had done the test as the wrong time of my cycle and thats why they were so different than the hospital ! )
The consultant was very honest and feels Clomid is the best option so im going to give that a try for 3 months and after that time will have a think about progressing to ICSI or IUI instead which is what was recommended. Will have to do some reading up on these as i concentrated on getting info on IVF so lots of reading for me and for the first time in years im now looking fwd to seeing AF so i can get started on the Clomid Having said that i had a little bit of something there today when i wiped so i think i my be getting AF very early - just hope my cycles dont go all over the place with the stress at the moment !
take care all x

why was your cons saying ICSI? Does your OH have problems with his swimmers? ICSI is just IVF with sperm injection. I dont think i would bother with IUI as it has such a low success rate (about 10%).
I Would not be happy with your GP! How awful for you hunny

Post subject: IVF
Hi, I thought that I could do this whole IVF thing on my own, but after 3 weeks of injecting I am realising that instead of getting easier it seems to be getting harder, so tonight I thought I would come into a forum and get some support from all you very brave ladies going through the same thing. I have just read Sues story and realised that she will be doing her pregnancy test in 2 days time. so I really wanted to say all the best to her and that I have everything crossed for you. I too am going through the Chaucer, I have to say they seem to be pretty great and so far I am really pleased with them. I did however get a bit of a panic on, I read way too much and have scared myself with the whole over stimulation thing! I figure everyone goes through this, I just don't know anyone I can chat to that has been through IVF. My OH is very supportive but I have been a bit moody and I feel a bit bad for him really because he must feel so helpless.
Good luck to you all. x

Hi to all,
though I would give aquick update - I remember before I started the IVF process I would hovver watching all the threads for any information to prepare!!
So it is only fair I give back to the community
Well now on day 9 of Buserelin injections and can honestly say they do not hurt - unless like this morning as you doing the injection the cat decides to use you leg as a scratching post (he almost got a toe where the sun don't shine!!)
Side effects are generally not too bad just feeling out of sorts and really impatient especially with the MIL (played on this a little) so hubby said may be wise to not go with him on the visit this weekend (so naughty, but gonna make the most of it )
Only other side effect; AF which is regular is now two days late and boobs and bloated feeling that always get before AF is twice a bad as normal - got baseline scan booked for tueday 17th november so do not know what to do if no sign of AF by weekend? will probably call hospital tomorrow PM for advice.
It would be great to hear from all you other ladies going thorugh it - it strange I would not say I am an emotional person but feel like only person going through is and no one understands the mixed bag of emotions

my AF was 7 days late while i was on the buserelin, so its quite normal. I'm now stimming, got my 1st follie count tmrw and i'm scared i wont have enough
Its such a rollercoaster, and i'm trying to take one step at a time, but its hard. I also suspect i will need another couple of days on the menopur at extra cost.
You will find the menopur injections sting a bit - the buserelin is the easy part (well apart from the PMT)
