Nope, April All Stars but Miss was prature so she was born at the beginning of December. When will you do the next treatment?

DH and I not on the same page.

Hey there, as i said on the other thread our babies are the same age and i certainly know how you feel about being broody... Isn't it mad? I positively hated being pregnant and had a complicated one but hells to the now I could start injecting today if money and BMI permitted despite how horrid of a career and life moment it is. Men tend to be less flushed with mind altering hormones 9 months after delivery and it may explain your husband's first reaction. I agree, run with the new indication. G...

TRYING AGAIN - GENERAL CHAT

Hello ladies! Butting in despite not going again till next year. How crazy we want to do it over again and Ravan - I was broody right off the gate too! Kat - good luck! Waiting for test day? Hopeful H - we must have cycled together - Dara is the same age as yours!

Broody - What the *#&S%?!?

Oh Lord, thank you very much, I was starting to proverbially feel like "the only one in the world, etc". Ginger74 - It is preposterous, it must be hormones but then again your baby girl is all grown up now and you're saying it never went away.... Scary. How cruel of God/my destroyed mind/ the Universe to make me, the infertile who didn't enjoy being pregnant and still doesn't believe she has a perfectly okay child want another this very second! MrsJasper - that's very plausible, this long TTCing...

Broody - What the *#&S%?!?

Also apologies, I realize how awfully ungrateful and greedy this may sound to those who haven't gotten number one yet. I know I would have gladly offered to slap the author of this thread if I had read it a while ago, I am simply shocked this is the situation myself!

Broody - What the *#&S%?!?

I never post anymore, I know but between untold stories of general woo with both baby and everyone else in the household and going to work it's been a very eventful last few months. I don't know where else to post this or who else to ask about this.... How utterly abnormal is it that I am so utterly broody a mere 6 weeks from popping our perfect Dara out?!? I should mention I HATED being pregnant, the worry, the tens of pains, everything about it was horrendous and I counted minutes to see her a...

PESSARIES

Thank you for your answer. I have 5 more boxes now and no clue how many I am really allowed to still take. I've been on 3 x 400 a day and maybe I need to go to two a day in week 11 and one in week 12 that would work out to 7 +14 +21 = 42 and I have 60 already. Or maybe I should keep to 3 on week 11 too, then 2 on week 12. Gah, guess I have to pressure a chemist into telling me how many I actually still have left and work it out from there. I read someone saying to someone else on FZ that "Proges...

PESSARIES

Sorry for the hijack but I am having a connected dilemma. My clinic didn't want me to do any progesterone after the BFP so I had to beg and steal to get the prescription. As a result I have no clue when to reduce (not sure how much more I have on file) or any indication when to stop altogether. Is that 12 weeks for you ladies with reasonable clinics? Anyone else terrified to stop it?

MALE FACTOR CHATTER

Loads. 140 lbs. But no worries I put 40 back now! To be 110% honest I am not sure about it helping with the BFP. Between our first consultation and the second we lost 200 lbs between the two of us but that was not the only change we made. We gave up smoking and largely drinking, we went to the gym and after the diet was over with ate Protein Power and even did acupuncture so I had thought they will crop 40 great quality eggs and oodles of Clives and I was in shock to see the measly 10 eggs with ...

Hello Shelly. So sorry, a zero fert cycle must be maddening. If your IVF is private, in your situation with limited amounts of tissue to play with I would get a consultation with Jonathan Ramsey in London. I think he's with CARE but is also having a private practice and from my research he is the best urologist in Eurpe and second best after Shenkel -sp?- at Cornell in the world. Good luck! How is everyone? Thanks for the visits in my diary ladies, you're all stars!

FIRST TRIMESTER CHAT - 2010

Mrs S I know just how you feel. Well not "just" because I'm at a different stage but I've spent the day on the verge or tears that something is wrong. I have reasons too it's not pure paranoia, my tests are not getting darker and my CB digital is still saying 2-3 weeks as it did a week ago, instead of 3+. I am trying to prepare myself for the worst, just have a bad sinking feeling.... But hope we're both wrong! Good luck and let us know as soon as you get back!

FIRST TRIMESTER CHAT - 2010

No worries ladies, no one is as POAS mad as I am! I started testing after the trigger shot and it's 16 days later per two or three tests a day, that's a good what? 48 ICs and then the two digitals that said pregnant 2-3 and the clinic test and the one FRER I have! Not done either, have some 15 more ICs to try it out, another digi to check on Thursday and hope it says 3+ and two awkard ones I got from an obscure internet shop Here's proof of my obsession, the last one is the first one for today b...

FIRST TRIMESTER CHAT - 2010

Emziui - thanks hon! Not Clomid in as far as I'm concerned, I had full blown IVF with ICSI and SSR, sadly no chance of less surgeries and drugs before we can dream to make a baby and even now with the quality of our embryos it is nothing short of a miracle! I don't mind the cramps, I never do cramp more than once or twice before AF so I know these twinges and hurts are not that but the baby/babies burrowing so that's ok. The other symptoms are not pleasant though but I'll gladly put up with 10 t...

FIRST TRIMESTER CHAT - 2010

Hello ladies! I was gonna wait till dipping my toes but Buttercup and Maliah gave me courage. 4w + 1 today. How strange that feels to say after years and years! I was telling someone yesterday that I haven't felt like myself since right after transfer as the symptoms started pretty much right away and today I'm still cramping like mad and nauseated every morning when I wake up. Still very bloated, my boobies still hurt on and off and are still huge. Still intolerably hot as soon as the night com...

Lower Back Pains

I feel silly asking this but here goes. Anyone else had lower back pains a mere 2 days after ET? Really strong too. I had some AF like cramps yesterday after the procedure but I presume those were simply my ovaries recouping after EC but this evening these very low back pain is rather strong -stabbing, comes and goes but not dependent on position - and it feels really awkward. I wouldn't be miscarrying something I may not yet be carrying, right? Any clue what this is about?

With or without me answering you will still feel alone if you will.... The disappointment, the lack of trust in your own mind, the uncertainty, the lack of will for it all.... I know them all and I am sure many here do. And the lonesomeness, it SO feels like even the ones who do get it don't truly, honestly care for anyone but themselves. And to a degree that's true, infertility makes us so damn selfish and lonely and tired. I hope it won't be too late and you won't need to wait, 4 weeks is fore...
