A message of hope

My dh and I were on the infertility and ivf rollercoaster for 7 years. We've done IUI, IVF, ICSI, FETs, we've we've gone crazy in the 2ww, we've POAS'ed, we've had BFPs, miscarriages, and more BFNs than I care to remember. We've had periods of feeling desperately sad, hopeful, disappointed, angry, h...

Re: March/April 2010 Cycle Group

It's a bfn for me. I'm feeling battered and bruised by this whole horrible journey. I don't understand why good things just don't happen to me. I kind of knew this was going to be my result. I had NO symptoms, and sometimes you just know. I'm so happy that the vast majority on this board are getting...

Re: March/April 2010 Cycle Group

Okay I had 7 eggs as of the retrieval yesterday. Today we are down to 4, so I must say I am depressed. :cry: We are doing the transfer Thursday but they don't know if any more will fall off or not. Has anyone had this low of number before and got pregnant? Amanda, Don't be depressed! Firstly, 7 egg...

Re: March/April 2010 Cycle Group

Hi Ladies, Sorry I've been MIA. I've been having a nightmare with my internet connection. Only just got it back this morning, although we still don't have TV or a phone! So much for Swiss efficiency! Franny - I am so so sorry my love to hear about the BFN. I was so so so much hoping that you were go...

Re: March/April 2010 Cycle Group

Is it normal to feel depressed in the 2ww? i need to feel positive :( Franca! It's totally normal! I've been on the verge of howling for a week now. Went for lunch with a work colleague today - was in the middle of a nice salad and a mineral water and suddenly found myself blubbering away to her (t...

Re: March/April 2010 Cycle Group

Hey Dr Boots, Thanks so much for your post. I'm really relieved that you had no symptoms and yet have a whopping great BFP. You're right, 'nothing could mean something' - that's going to be my mantra from now on! Some ladies were talking about 'going to crazytown' before. I don't know where that is ...

Re: March/April 2010 Cycle Group

Beta today was negative. Just wanted to let you all know and to say thanks so much for all of your support. I probably won't be back on. RE says that I have a 10-20% chance since I'm such a poor responder to the meds. I don't see any reason for me to put myself through another round and have to pay...

Re: March/April 2010 Cycle Group

Hi All, Bei - so good that AF finally showed up. Glad she could join us!! You are now on your way..! Paty - so great that you've had a better response to the meds. I guess it shows that with each cycle REs learn and can change things for better results. I'll be thinking of you on Thurs. Hope ER goes...

Thanks Angela. That's really put my mind at rest. Not that I don't trust RE, but you know....
You're a font of information by the way. Have you done loads of research online?
And congrats again Mama! You must be feeling so happy and excited.

Re: March/April 2010 Cycle Group

Kushka, Thank you for replying... I am so sorry about your miscarriage...Stay postitive and believe that the third time is a charm!You are right it is the hands of God! Did you have any bleeding/spotting before you miscarried? With my previous two miscarriages, I never had any bleeding or spotting....
