Post subject: Can i join you??
Hello - can i join you lovely ladies please? starting IVF in December - was supposed to start in July / August just after we got married but i found out i was pregnant when we got back from honeymoon but unfortunately had another early m/c and have struggled the past few months to build up the strength to be emotionally prepared for IVF - i am terrified!! we have to pay for our treatment as my husband has grown up children from his first marriage. The clinic we are using is doing a buy 2 get one free lol!! so we have paid 7500 for 3 cycles. I am so petrified as i feel like this is really last chance saloon for us, i am only (!) 32 but OH is 53 and he is starting to think he is getting too old now and when he is 55 that has to be our cut off point. I have been signed off work with stress and anxiety since September and i am handing my notice in before xmas so i can have a real stress free shot at IVF - eeek!!! I am so scared Crying or Very sad

thank you that's really lovely. I am glad you feel giving up your job was the best thing to do i have contemplated it for months now not sure what to do but since i was signed off sick in September i have loved being at home and the calmness it brings, i have worked for years and have always had my own money even though OH is older than me and looks after me because he earns a lot i like having my own money and have been worried about feeling totally dependent on him i know am lucky to have the choice to give up work but i hope it will not make me feel worse - yes i worry about everything!! Confused

That's so great to hear, i too think i'll look for a part time job in the new year but only if it is something i can cope with and the hours are very part time. I have also done loads of cooking and now i'm planning some baking ready for xmas!!! i love going to bed a bit later as well without having to worry about getting up really early for work!! My husband loves the change in me too so i think it the good outweighs the bad feelings about being a housewife!!

Hi All, welcome Shelly Smile

Just logged on to see how you were getting on Claire and so so sorry for you hun Sad I really hope that ur blood test shows you a different result. Its good that you get the results so quickly from the clinic, mine was the same, within 2 hours I think. If it's not good news then def break out the vodka and relax, will still have my fingers crossed for you tho x x

Nicky - well done on your fab crop and yay to your eggies and spermies getting jiggy Wink Thats a great number so you'll have lots to put on ice just in case they are needed. Don't worry about ur ET its very very easy compared to everything else! I actually felt ok after EC and am sure the bloating and pain I had was because of the cyclogest which I used up the front. I have heard if you use them in the back they don't cause the bloating so maybe thats why you don't feel in any pain??

Hopeful - not long for you hun Smile

Who was it who asked about when you start your drugs after your period starts? depends on if your doing short protocol or not. I was sp and started on day 2 of my cycle. I don't know what day you start if your on long protocol.

Lou - how's it going hun?

afm - still not got ewcm but have had serious left ovary pains so hoping it won't be long. My DR cancelled our follow-up appointment which was supposed to be today so I haven't been able to ask questions about our failed cycle yet. But it has made me think I don't know if I want to use her again. I had this feeling about my OBGYN in one of my last appointmnts with him before the birth of my son and looking back so regret not going with a different OBGYN so think something is trying to tell me to change IVF Dr!!!

Hi Shelley! I start ivf in December too, I'm looking forward to it but the nerves are setting in now! I just got a letter through today and I'm doing the long protocol...does anyone know what decides this out of interest? It starts 5 days after my first day of my period, I know that's gonna happen Xmas week so have to arrange to go onto one of the wards as the department I need is closed!
Hope everyone is ok tonight, it's Friday tomorrow, the weekend is in sight!! X

Morning ladies clinic just rang omg our 16 from yesterday all survived overnight and 15 of them are grade 1/2 and 1 is grade 2/3.

Is this really good news does it mean my eggs are good quality.

If all same tmrw they will go to blastocyst on monday

Does having a good egg Mean the embryo will be stronger does this mean i have good chance?

As im asking that question i know its out of my hands.i have never been pregnant so who knows if it will implant

I feel like it is all going too well im not unwell or in pain like they anticipated.....all too good to be true which then puts doubt in m mind...god damn ego why cant i just be excited.

Alowicious hi nice to hear from u. I defo have some form of bloating but not as i was thinking.only took 2 painkillers lnite.
Im dreading the ET because when i had the pipelle procedure the clamp and procedure killed me coz i havent had kids my cervix is tight. I would hate to be in pain and stressed while embryo goes in.

Clare what time is your blood test today.....have everything crossed for j..xxx

Hope everyone else is ok today xxx

Whoooo Nicky sounds good, does sound like you got good ones there Smile

Well had my blood test done and its now confirmed negative. Will have a break over christmas and then go again in January, have to hope for 3rd time lucky I suppose.

Faye I did long protocol I think you do that if you havent got any major problems like decreased fertility. Only difference between the 2 is you down regulate first to shut your body down before stimmulating it with long protocol where as with short you dont shut it down you start stimming straight away instead. x

Yes 1 Ivf cycle and one frozen embryo transfer cycle under our belts now to add to the long list of disappointments. Frozen embryo transfer is £1275 without drugs, we will definately be buying the drugs else where next time as we've been making the mistake of getting them at the clinic. Couldnt believe it when I got my last prescription at asda (1 box of cyclogest and 1 box of progynova) it was only £17, where as the clinic charges £24 for cyclogest and another £20 odd for progynova. Luckily theyre arent that many drugs involved in a fet.

Havent bought my vodka yet, will do that tomorrow then sunday will be spent lazing about, watching films and eating junk! Going to go to zumba tonight before I start my period because that always makes me smile. x
