Hi Lorraine and Franky : D

Lorraine, hope you're doing ok so far on your meds?

Franky - good luck for next week! I agree with Snoops, have a look at the IUI success rates on the website. I never had IUI (swimmer issues!) but a close friend of mine has had two lots and has two children, worked both times round. I guess it all depends on your and your partners circumstances; no doubt your Dr at the centre will be very thorough and together you can make an informd choice. They're big on their success rates so it's not worth their while to suggest something that is unlikely to work.

Snoops - I'm off to check out your diary hon, sounds like you're having a rough ride. All good so far though so xfingers the bleeding will settle and mini snoops will hang in there :hugs:

Hi All

Thanks for your support girlies, much appreciated. Snoops, how are things? Hope all OK?

Saw the Dr, who is lovely, told us to go for ICSI and we'll see the nurse in approx 10 days to have the planning / dates. I'm lacking in any positive thinking and think it was hearing that actually IUI isn't going to be our option but instead I have a few issues too (as well as hubby) so ICSI is a better option. This will sound totally pathetic and dramatic but I feel like its not going to happen, we won't have children, I'm going to be childless. Totally no hope. I know its probably the shock of the appt going in a different route than I was expecting and that ICSI can work, I think when Dr told me the success rate is 35% and knowing that if it doesn't work first time then we'll have to find £6k to try each time its made me feel low, that it won't happen. I know, I need to think positive and so am going to look at maybe trying some NLP / Hypnotherapy,... I just want this so bad, we'd be wonderful parents and just want something so many people take for granted. Sorry for that...... just had some emotional diarraoah ! Its not fair :(

Love to all the Bristol BCRMers's xx

Franky hon, I felt EXACTLY the same at the same stage. I was expecting to be able to try IUI or something less invasive first and it was a huge decision for us as we never envisaged going through the IVF process. However, we thought we may as well just to draw a line under ttc - and went it to it never expectibg it to work.

We all deal with things in our own way - mine tended to be que sera sera, I carried on as normal - ate healthily, drank tea, the odd glass of wine and accepted that we could not control fate. Others throw themselves into it by using every alternative therapy known to man etc.

Just take one day at a time and do whatever makes it easier for you to get through it :xxx3:

There is hope...!

Hi Franky

You may remember me from a posting a few months back about BCRM. Well, I've been quiet for a few months whilst I get my head round another failure but I am pleased to say that I'm in the middle of my 2 week wait. I had treatment in the end with Institut Marques in Barcelona but I've been having my scans in the UK with a consultant from BCRM who has been brilliant.

I've been on the journey for 18 months so far and can absolutely share your frustration and the emotional rollercoaster. ALL my friends have had babies in the last 6 months and my sister and sister-in-law are currently pregnant. However nice they may be to me, they can never really understand what I'm feeling!

I am keeping everything crossed for you and wishing you lots of luck. xfingers

Oh I agree - it's the longest two weeks in the World and there isn't a single emotion you don't encounter. So hard to keep yourself busy too, but it's the only way to prevent insanity!!

Fingers crossed x

Hi Snoopy! I had a frozen embryo transfer today in Barcelona. We had a frozen batch of 3 and a batch of 2 from our last cycle. They defrosted the batch of 3 and all survived so they recommended we transfer all 3 which we agreed to. There is a much higher chance of twins and a chance of triplets but we thought it was all worth it anyway.

Hope all is well with you?

Franky: sorry to hear of your BFN.....its rubbish isn't it? Keep your fingers crossed for next time.

Hey lovely Bristol ladies

Congrats MrsW and Jo on being PUPO and I hope the 2ww isn't driving you both mad. I will be keeping my fingers crossed for you both

Jo, I'm fine thanks hun. I am 19wks tomorrow following our third cycle of icsi and it still doesn't seem real, apart from the fact I still have morning sickness! I am so grateful to be here and I am starting to believe I'm pregnant! We have our 20wk scan Friday so looking forward that, but slightly anxious too!

I hope the rest of the Bristol ladies are ok

Much love

Hi All

Waiting times at the BCRM seem to be getting longer..........

Snoopy - BIG congratulations to you, wonderful news xxx

Joanne B - which clinic in Barcelona was it and would you recommend? Someone has suggested the CERAM in Marbella. I don't know whether to look at going abroad or look at seeing a private Spire fertility specialist in Bristol. We just had our first unsuccesful ICSI treatment and I've received the follow up appointment to see the Dr to discuss this and its not until the 20 0ctober - thats 10 weeks. It might not sound long but to me it feels like forever, particuarly as I'll then have to wait and wait for investigations or whatever. At what stage did you decide to go abroad? Congrats on your transfer, when are you due to test?

Hi Franky, so sorry to hear your sad news. I know the wait at BCRM is quite long as I tried to get an appointment earlier this year and it was 10 weeks then! As we needed an egg donor, we had been on the egg donor waiting list at BCRM for 2 years with no end in sight and decided to go to Spain instead as there is no waiting list there for any fertility treatment! We decided on Institut Marques in Barcelona as we knew someone who has two children from 2 IVF treatments and they said it was lovely.....which it is.

On the forum 'looking for egg donor buddies', there are many girls who are going to all different clinics and some of them to Marbella. Have a read of their journeys.

I have my scans at the Spire Hospital but they are done by Mr Valentine Akande who is also at BCRM.

Hope you are generally well besides this emotional roller coaster!!

Jo

Hi Lorraine, its good to know there is another BCRM lady out there!! we've been having treatment in Spain recently because we need an egg donor and have been on the waiting list at BCRM for 3.5 years! However, we've recently got to the top of the list so we've got an appointment on 26 October......am looking forward to having treatment down the road rather than catching a flight!! lmao

Good luck with your treatment, do you have a date yet? :angel2:

wow thats a long time hunni bet you have been pulling your hair out, its a bit of a long story with me ive been going to bcrmnow for almost 2 years had 4 operations to sort things, then started our ivf cycle in june this year, and resulting in a bfp but went for my scan and bcrm nurse couldnt find the baby so had to go to the early pregnancy clinic and had test and scans done the baby was alive but in my right tube and it began to rupture so had emergency surgery within 20 minutes of almost callapsing to remove the tube and baby so have been in total shock since, its been 6 weeks this thursday an feels like it was only yesterday, but they have now said i will need my right tube removed in december/january then start ivf again 2 months after so i have another hard 6/7 months ahead then ivf and hopefully it will work again.

Hi All

Not been on here for a while but wanted to say hello. Joanne, I saw in your signature that you had an appt at BCRM today - I hope that went well?

I had 2 x FET two weeks ago and am not due to test for another week but tonight have started to feel like I've got period pain and so my heart has sunk into my shoes :( This infetility crap really does suck :(

Lorraine, I can't believe what you have been through, sorry to hear what happened to you, I wish you lots of love and luck.

Fingers crossed and good wishes to everyone at BCRM. xfingers

Hi ladies

Is there anyone around who's still having treatment at the BCRM or recently referred?

Hubby and I were referred last month, sperm analysis is at the end of November and then consultation should follow shortly after. Pretty nervous and not sure what to expect, the wait is killing me but using the time to prepare my body and lose a little more weight.

We're going to the opening evening on the 29th October, looking forward to seeing the clinic and hopefully settling my mind a little

I hope everythings going well for you!

Hi ladies only just realised there was a thread for the bcrm Im in the middle of a medicated FET I had a successful icsi back in 2009 and now using my embryos from which I had frozen, I must say though I'm not finding the staff at bcrm as nice and helpful as they wer in the past, I've been a bit in the dark about what I'm supposed to be doing and wether I'm doing things right and when I phone for advice it seems like I'm being a nuisance. I've just started taking progynova but other women on here are having lining scans but no1 has said anything to me about going in for one :-(

Hi Steff
I'm in midst of natural FET transfer. Had one frozen embryo which miracously survived the thaw and was transferred today.
With my last failed FET back in 2010 (again one embie but that didn't survive the thaw) I was not offered a lining scan on day of ovulation. It was not mentioned in the written protocol and I was none the wiser. However the protocol I got this time round did mention it and on day I got LH surge rang and got booked in. This time round its been more straightforward as natural cycle and limited clinic contact and they've been pretty good - especially with a sunday scan. Sorry to hear you're having problems. I hope that when you start testing for your LH surge they will mention that you need to have a scan then to check your lining.

Hi kiwimaya thanks for your reply! I phoned the clinic and asked should I be having a scan and she said your not booked in to have one but we have just changed protocol so il book u in for one we didn't used to do them but we thought it was best to rather than just guessing! I wan quite shocked by that I thought they would have had to do it all along. I would be due my scan on Sunday too but she said it would have to be 8.15 on Monday and to carry on with buserelin spray and not start the pessaries until I've had the scan, which made me think ok so that's delayed for a day so does that mean my transfer day is delayed she said no it all really confuses me. Good luck with your transfer what day is it on?

Yep, nearly 2 days post transfer now. Let the paranoia begin! Can't believe our wee frostie survived the thaw.
I was wondering about whether they are changing the protocols. I think they're planning on changing the thaw protocol soon as well as I was given conflicting advice between the sunday and the monday. When I had my consultation in April the Dr asked if I wanted a scan then to see if all was ok as there wouldn't be one otherwise. I decided not to and was pleasantly surprised to get one offered in the protocol.
I can remember feeling confused with drugs and protocols on medicated cycles as there was so much more to coordinate and communication - particularly communication between drs and nurses wasn't always spot on though was also clarified. I can also remember always being paranoid about what they were doing around the ovulation times and that they'd miss it but results show that all was fine.
The scan as you know is to check your lining thickness, think it needs to be 7mm plus. They also had a look at whether follicle was ovulating (on natural anyone not sure about yours). As they don't defrost until at least 48 hours after lh surge your scan the day after should be fine. They'll still be able to judge thickness fine and tweak anything if needs be. Do ring up if your worried about the pessaries question though as it will bug you
Wishing you the best of luck

Thanks jen, i am a little more at ease now, it is stressful being so unsure that its going right, i feel a little more reasured knowing your frosties thawed because thats another worry, i think that would be worse for me if they fidnt thaw than if they did and i got a bfn because at least if u have the transfer and its a bfn you no youve tried everythung if they dont thaw youv taken all the medication and been desperate to get to transfer day and it would feel like it was all for nothing i think if they didnt durvive thaw, thats how im feeling anyway!
You must be feeling that warm fuzzy feeling of having yours inside you but also scared to move the wrong way because its very nerve wracking being desperate for them to implant! I so hope they do for you, give them a little talking to! And yes! Paranoia will soon be kicking in, any little twinge and you might freak out lol, have you already bought your pregnancy test? I have everything crossed for you! : D
Its exciting isnt it

yes - so relieved it survived the thaw. We only had one so were actually expecting it not too. Think for us it was the best way to proceed. Having it survive was such a shock. Trying to rest but being very fortunate to have 2 little boys doesn't make this easy. Already have a stash of pregnancy tests left over from having bought ovulation packs of ebay. Currently fighting the urge to test early and obessing with fet and testing questions on google!
Hope you're feeling more settled. When do you expect to be ready for thaw and transfer?

I hope the thaw went well and you transferred today. I've tested only slightly early yesterday and today but negative so will try again tomorrow. You never know! Hope you're taking it easy

Oh, no. Thats terrible news. I am so sorry. Hope you're taking it easy and being good to yourself. xxx
I'm pretty sure that we're out of the game as well. bfn this morning after 10 days after 4 day old embie transfer. Not even a whiff of a line despite how long I stare at it and what angle I look at it under. Very sad, though we have already been truly blessed.
I wish you all the best with what you go on to decide to do

Thanks Steff. Yes we're fine. Its would have been an amazing thing to have worked but we have the 2 boys and didn't want to destroy the little frostie with out getting it chance. You have to pysch yourself up for either eventuality so though i was prepared for it not to work you also have to let yourself think about how it could be if it did. So letting go of that feeling and for me, (from a v fortunate position), knowing that there will be no more babies is a sad process.
I wish you all the best for any future treatment
