Hi everyone I hope you are all ok?
As for me egg collection went ok disappointed that out of all those eggs they are only gonna use 15 so 8 for me and 7 for my recipient but then came the news that OHs sample showed up positive on the M.A.Rs test so our fertilisation rate could be very low, I actually feel full of dread at receiving the call from the clinic tomorrow morning ive convinced myself that none of them will fertilise

Oh Tash, that must be disappointing. Dont give up hope yet tho, wait and see what they say in the morning, hopefully it will be better news than your expecting. Hope you manage to get a good rest tonight.
Hi Louise, congratulations on the wedding! When was it? wont be long til you start, it will come round quick with Christmas inbetween
Hi Nicky, my husband is home for the weekend, we had a very lazy day and managed a rare evening out tonight, which was nice but tiring! Glad your feeling more calm about the whole thing. I'm really hoping these are early symptoms, and I do feel like you describe, almost like Im coming down with something, tired, headache, ache all over. If it helps, this is how I remember feeling last time, so fingers crossed they are good signs for both of us!

Hello ladies, hope you're all doing well.
Not been on line for a bit - Tash I really hope you're doing okay? Hope you've had the call and its good news. Sorry, I hadn't realised it was your EC on Saturday otherwise would have popped on to wish you luck.
Nicky & FC - been thinking about you both. Hope you're both well- not too long to wait now!! Are you going mad trying to symptom spot or is it not too bad? I was obsessed with looking at that time line thing that FC posted when I was in 2ww each time!!
Claire hun hope you're okay and indulging in Christmas goodies to keep your mind off things and just looking forward to January x
Hope everyone else is well
Welcome Louise - January will be here before you know it- good luck

Morning everyone, how are you all on this freezing cold day?
Thank you for all your well wishes I still feel quite tender and sore and constipated lol, we just had our call from the clinic and out of the 8 egg 4 have fertilised so we are in tuesday for transfer and we are going to have 2 put back. Do you think the clinic will call us tomorrow with another update? I totally forgot to ask when they called.
Whats everyone doing today? Im thinkin abvout putting the tree up
Posted: Sun Dec 02, 2012 12:13 pm
Yeah totally, I think if I get one good quality they ill just put one back but if they aren't the best then go for two....my head was in the clouds at most of my consultations hence me asking lots of questions in here lol! We have twins in both sides of our family...would this effect things?! X

Hey, thanks ladies for the welcome i got married November 16th
Faye- i'm doing the short protocol because i have PCOS they want to reduce my risk of oHSS, im due around 29th dec:) so we should be testing around the same time??
Tash hope the ET goes ok
i will try my best to keep track of everything, far from computer literate lol
everyone ready for xmas??

Morning everyone How is everyone? Tash bet youre relieved the egg collection is all over now, not long till youre pupo now If the clinic have already said when transfer will be Im not sure they will call again.
Faye dont beat yourself up about your eating and drinking, Im not the healthiest of people I had a few drinks before we started treatment. Obviously once we got going I cut down to 1 cup of tea a day and tried to limit all the junk and I had good quality eggs etc.
Omg Anna Im so excited for you I think youre doing the right thing and its a nice bit of security if you get frozens out of it too. x
Fc , Nicky I think things are looking promising for you both. I reckon youll both get your bfps x
Afm still waiting for period to disappear completely , am nearly there lol. Want to put 100% into trying this month so am going to make sure I pounce on o/h at ovulation time. Its actually quite an exciting thought of trying naturally lol its been so long of being artificial everything. Went out with the zumba girls saturday night and had a really nice time. Im so excited for christmas now its so exciting x

Morning Clare , nice to hear from you sounds like you are real positive about the future really think it helps having xmas around corner as takes our mind off it all.
hubby wont know whats hit him.... are u able to conceive naturally or you just going to give it your best shot...?
Saturday night sounds like fun too - really nice to let your hair down i bet.
I am still unsure about Wednesday, as i said hardly any symptoms so its gonna go either way, dont have a gut feeling about either to be honest, we had good start but what will be will be. i slept well but havent laid in and im up and about, suppose i do feel tired but could be me thinking so much making me tired LOL. I think i have now got my head around fact that it isnt the end of the world, we have frosties and NHS referal in background.
i am off to asda today to get some preganancy tests - clearblue or first response yeh?
also do u wee in something as i know a lot of my friends had to test twice on test day.... can i just use same wee specimin and different test???
has to be first wee of day doesnt it?
off to make a nice beef casserole for when bf gets home from work.
eeekkk 2 more days..
how is everyone today?
Posted: Mon Dec 03, 2012 8:44 am
Id get the first response Nicky and just pee on the stick, it doesnt have to be first wee of the day. First response are that sensitive its not necessary. I certainly wouldnt test twice a day theres no need for that.
I have 1 tube left Nicky and we arent sure whether its still open or not . I had a laparoscopy in August 2011 and my gynae found it to be blocked at the end it was folded over so there was no chance of it picking up an egg, he managed to fix it but as I say that was 16 months ago and we've not fallen pregnant since. To be honest I dont want to know if its blocked again because if it is the nhs already told me they wouldnt operate again because of my previous surgeries, Id rather not know either way and hope for a miracle. All of our troubles not conceiving are purely down to my tubal problems everything else is fine.

i had a friend doing ivf she tested and got a negative so tested.again within mins and got positive so ill get a.few.
arh i see well theres no harm on trying.our only issue is that i rarely ovulate well not on my own a few times with chlomid but i had a friend who ovulated twice a year.and now has two kids.amazing.
