We only have 12 days until we finally start at the beginning of our journey. My hubby is having his PESA procedure on the 16th and i am having my blood tests the same day. We are hoping to egg share and i am 35 this year so need to get a move on lol.
Getting excited and nervous. I have managed to lose 10lb so far too, need to lose another stone yet by the time we actually start the treatment

I know busy, hopefully we'll get loads. Good luck for your scan. Xx
Just had a chat with my project manager and boss this morning as they were talking about challenging dates for our project and key milestones around when I'll be ready for egg collection, so had to tell them I won't be able to work stupid hours and will need some time off. I already have the week off where we!d be due for transfer so that should be ok. They were actually quite supportive.

That's good your work are being understanding, takes some pressure off I guess. My o/h's work have been pretty good through out its just a shame he is ending up using all of his holidays for us to do this. Think he has used about 2 weeks worth off his annual leave after this round. I just hope and pray that this one will be successful.
Ttc since December 2007!

Hi ladies, hope you're all doing well at your various stages of treatment!
Quinny and gillym, I just wanted to wish you both luck and I know its easier said than done, but please try to stay positive. I have a friend who has had 3 rounds of ivf between the ages of 38 and 40, the first clinic she went to wouldnt treat her because she would be such a low responder they didnt hold out any hope. She went to a different clinc and only retrieved 4 eggs but got a bfp! She had bfn second time but third time again very low response, I think only 3 eggs and another bfp!! She now has 2 healthy daughters!

Hey nutty, it does take the pressure off. I feel oddly better tonight maybe cos I'm not stressing about work as well. Its a shame having to use hols, there are just so many appointments. Here's hoping u get your bvp this time.
Thanks fc79 for sharing that story, it's good to hear it. I've read a few other similar stories online tonight so feeling a bit more positive. It's seems hard to get right balance of being positive but not getting too carried away.
Hope everyone is doing well on their treatment. Xx

I know what you mean gilly about getting the balance right. Everyone says you have to stay positive, but the last thing you want to do is set yourself up for a fall. I think the best thing is to try and stay as calm as possible and not think about it too much (impossible!) I think really tho it is mostly down to the embryo, if it is healthy and destined to grow into a baby then it will do and there probably isnt an awful lot we can do to influence it either way!

The way im look at it is that so long as i have at least one good egg thats fertilised ill be happy, if it doesnt stick, it doesnt stick....try again, at least i know i got that far. Does that make sense? Im not building myself up in the slightest, think ive managed to keep pretty calm....up to now anyways, be a diff story next week! I dont hope that at least one of us has a BFP this month.....i hope that all of us do!!
