We are hoping to start our first bit of our journey in January.
I have had my AHM levels done, which were high at 52 as i have PCOS, and a pelvic scan. My hubby is having PESA next month, just waiting for the date. I will be having my blood tests taken on the same day. Hopefully i will start the drugs etc by March, depending on when we are matched with another couple as we are hoping to egg share.
The reason we are going down this route as my hubby had a vasectomy 7 years ago after the birth of our last son and i have regretted it for the past 6. Since then i have developed PCOS and have really irregular periods, sometimes going 6 months between them. We were going to go down the reversal way but after chatting to both a VR consultant and an infertility clinic, we were advised that IVF was probably the better chance of a successful pregnancy, so here we are lol

Morning Nicky. Had a full nights sleep, and feeling much better today thanks. I'm feeling quite numb about the whole thing now really. I'm definitely not testing til Sunday morning, which really surprises me as usually I'm terrible for testing early! I felt quite positive last night as had some strange twinges and cramps like you describe, similar to af cramps but diffreent, maybe sharper. Now this morning just feel like af is on the way. I swing between, wow I think I might actually be pregnant and no way, this definitely hasnt worked several times an hour! Going to get a first response tomorrow and use it with fmu Sunday!!
Your weekend away sounds lovely, hope you have a nice relaxing time. We are putting decs up tomorrow and we'll see what Sunday brings, either way will probably be relaxing, christmas films and nice roast beef dinner!

Thanks Claire, I think the only reason is I havent bought any tests, so cant test! If they were sitting in the drawer I think I definitely would have caved by now! Going to buy some tomorrow, so might get a pannicky 'I tested late in the afternoon and got bfn' post tomorrow!

Its completely natural to feel like that. I worried about losing the baby til I was about 30 weeks! I then had pains and the doc said the head was engaged early and he could come at any time, so I worried about that! He was 8 days over due and I worried about being induced as I heard the induction drugs could cause autism, and its only now he's 18 months and a big strong boy that I have stopped checking he's still breathing whenever he sleeps longer than expected!! No one will be offended as we are all in the same boat and completely understand. Put on some happy christmas music and talk to your baby all about the nice christmas food you'll be sending down there in the next few weeks!

FC- not long to go now, been hoping all is okay with you and keeping everything crossed. It's so hard not to obsess or worry about everything and sounds like you had a very stressful day the other day. But I remember you telling me that a bit of stress won't hurt or harm anything and if its going to work its going to work. I know it hard to listen to your own advise but you should really hope you get your BFP. Try and keep calm and carry on and Sunday morning will be here. Really thought you might end up testing tomorrow!! Most of us cave at least a day early!!
Tash how are you feeling?
Nicky I'll pm you back a bit later on - hope you're doing well and if you need to just do nothing- do nothing!!
Hi Claire and everyone else hope you're well and thanks for the good luck messages.
We are home after seeing our wonderful little baby blob with a wonderful heartbeat flashing away soooo happy!! I walked into the room and I was the most nervous I had ever been about anything. I had this overwhelming sense to want to cry just going and sitting in the chair!! She stuck the thing in me and it seemed ages as she was looking around and my heart started beating even faster I thought I was going to faint haha!! She then said 'yep, all is fine. Perfect' Confirmed 7 weeks and 2 days! It's actually 2 days larger than that so measuring 7 weeks and 4 dys. I burst into tears and then couldn't stop laughing (looked a right crazy person!) and te screen went all funny cos of the vibrations so had to force myself to stop laughing so we could see our baby again and see the heart beat flashing away! She let us film the screen and we have a few pics to keep staring at too.
Anyway sorry to waffle on and I really don't mean to seem insensitive to those still waiting for your BFP's. I honestly wish you all the luck in the world for your futures and hope your dreams come true like ours finally has. I'll keep popping on to see how you're all getting on
Lots of love and prayers for you all xxxx
