Hey Girls! Just checking in to wish everyone a good weekend. JJJake - I would speak to your RE about your work, my job is also fairly physical (I'm a phys ed teacher) and I really believe that going back to work too soon after all bar one of my tmt's contributed to my BFN's. The one that I did stay ...

Hi Anie, So sorry to hear about your m/c - I can totally relate but time does heal. I would say wait a while before you do a FET, if no reason other than to give your body time to heal. FET's are so much easier than IVF, especially if you do a natural one. You have a couple of scans pre ovulation, t...

Hi!

You should look at the Aug/ Sept thread as there are lots of us at various stages of tmt on there - am sure there would be one of us who is close to your schedule.

Hi Girls, Just a quick one as I have to go and teach in a few minutes!! Valerie - in response to your question about sore boobs.

Afternoon Ladies! JHarris - I feel for you, I really do. I definitely support what Valerie says tho, speak to DH and go with what is best for you both. This IVF rollercoaster is hard enough without the added stress of being told one thing but then the clinic doing something else! At least if you dec...

Hi, Just thought I'd let you know that I am having tmt in Sweden this time round (I live in the UK) and I am scheduled to fly back the night of my ET. Apparently they do it all the time and there has never been a problem...they have a 56% success rate as well! Hope that puts your mind at rest? Kate :D
