Hi, Sorry to hear your news, I had the same thing happen to me - the clinic said it was quite possible for the embie to be 'hidding' as they are still so small. Unfortunately for me that wasn't the case, but there were other girls who had been through the same thing and saw a heartbeat at the next u...

Jen,

Just a quick one - I know you won't see this for a few days but heard the ET went well (Nickie txt me) and thought I'd send you some sticky dust to help the embies stick. Not long now until your BFP!! :D

Hi, I have done numerous FET and they are so much easier than a fresh cycle. In answer to your question I had a couple of scans before the ET to check the thickness of the lining and to make sure I ovulated at the right time. They then gave me an injection to make me ovulate as it wasn't happening a...

Hi, I can't really talk about ARGC personally but a friend of mine went there and really liked it. She had had 5 failed cycles elsewhere and had her final one at ARGC. Unfortunately it didn't result in a BFP but the support and the way she was made to feel was excellent. The only downside was the am...

Nickie, Totally understand how you feel...this rollarcoaster is a bugger!! Think you are doing the right thing about going on the pill, even if it only sorts out the 'am I aren't I' scenario every month. Love the idea about us all meeting up when you get your B & B - you'd better hurry up!! Looking ...

Hi Anie, Think I am going to do the same as you and stick with the Essex clinic, bit further to travel but like you said at least I know them. I am hopefully going to do another fresh cycle in Jan/Feb time - it will depend on my cycle. Not sure how many more I can through before I call it a day. Let...
