Glad to be back posting today. Sorry I haven’t been around just recently to support you all. We’re such a big group now so there must be some BFPs due very soon!!!
BigJ – Noooo, I can’t believe it. AF put a spanner in the works with me just recently too and my endo had always been fine so I can really sympathize there. Not fair that you couldn’t bring your embies home. But they are waiting for you and they’ll be home with you for Christmas! Big hugs xxx
JenB, you are doing such a wonderful job of supporting everyone here. Hope things are not too tough for you with work at the moment. It’s good that you can focus on starting next treatment with your frosties in Jan. Seems you’re gonna have lots of cycle buddies. If my ET doesn’t happen before Christmas, I might be joining you too.
Jen1 – I don’t know you too well but from what I do know, you are going to be an absolutely fab mum, “a natural” like Carolyn says. So no need to worry. Everyone including the social worker has real confidence in you so just take it as it comes and take your time. Glad to hear your Doc is supporting you with the immune testing and is on your side with adoption stuff. Good news!
Rhalloo – how are you doing? Sending you big hugs and hope you have plenty of good things planned for the holidays.
Carolyn – The 2WW seems to get harder each time doesn’t it. Any news from IM? Stay strong and try hard to stay positive. Wishing you and DH all the luck in the world for your dream to come true.
Do keep your tummy warm. Warm soups help too. I try and stock our freezing compartment up with home-made soups and stews around start of treatment. Means you’ve always got some good quality food at hand, even if you don’t have time to cook. Oooh, that makes me sound all organised, doesn’t it?
Kelly – better to stay neutral, I know, but your symptoms are sounding good. Hoping and praying for it to be your time this time. You’re doing so well so just hang on in there.
Gill – hope things are moving forward for you very soon and that you get some news and next steps to focus on. Not long now to your ski trip in Lapland. I’m sure that will do you a world of good and help you regain strength. There’s loads of snow here already but I didn’t feel up to sking this weekend so DH went without me. Hmm. Wish I’d gone now.
Welcome, Judy. Pleased that you’ve found us here. Actually I’m in Germany and am having treatment in Poland so can’t really help you out with advice on clinics but am sure you’ll find lots of information here on this site. I don’t know what I’d do without it. All the best for your decisions.
Chriss – how frustrating it is to be waiting so long for ovulation and not knowing when you can go ahead with treatment. I really feel for you there. Any sign of AF yet? Hope you will be back on track soon.
Rebeccaj – good to hear from you again and glad you are feeling great. Thank you for keeping us updated with your news. It’s helping us all keep the faith…hope more of us will be coming to join you very soon…
My first test went OK, no bacteria found. Next scan to check for cysts is on Thursday. If all goes to plan, I’ll get the go-ahead to start my injections on Saturday (yuk!), which is cycle day 21. Nevertheless I can’t really get so excited this time. It’s the next stage, not knowing how I will react to the meds when it comes to building up my lining, which is making me anxious. Dare I say it… ET could be any time from mid Dec to mid Jan.
At least at work, luck seems to be on my side. The projects have been re-distributed in the department so there’s no overseas travel involved in the near future. Phew! I’m not going to worry about what will happen in January just yet.
A big hello to all I missed this time, I’m thinking of you.
Lots of love to you strong and wonderful women. Thank you for being there!
