Hi Carolyn,

Wishing you the best of luck for your test on Monday. You have made it further than ever before...your body is obviously doing something different. Praying that this is the end of your struggle and that big belly days are heading your way!

Much love,

Thank you so much. You are all fab. :lol: :lol: It is amazing now that I think I have had posts on this thread from ladies who I have cycled with on each of my 5 tries!!!!

Well I wrote to IM/Barcelona and asked whether I really had to test on a Monday morning when I will be at work. Which is 16 days post transfer.

They said that my normal test date would be Saturday - they just don't say weekend test date (JB - that answers your question!) as not sure how girls/clinics will be able to accomodate.

So my test is now two days away. Feel nothing at all. But at least that will give me the weekend to get to grips with the result.

Thanks for everything.

Lots of Love
Carolyn

Thanks so much to you all. It would be impossible not to be moved & blown away by the support and kind wishes of so many people that you never ever met. (Jen - the kittens were SO cute)

So the bad news is that I poas (I hear the shouting now :evil: ) and there was no line at all. Just stark white staring back at me. I know that they are buggers but had to do it as did not want my hopes to soar after Day 11 as know that it is the meds stopping the bleed rather than me.

Good news is that I just called my UK clinic. Can get bloods done at 8.30am tomorrow. Usually a 3 hour turn around so 11.30am but she said to plan on getting the call around lunchtime. Just speaking to them brought all the memories of the last cycle back so god knows what I will be like tomorrow??? :shock:

Well I got to test day minus 1. Someone has found some meds that at least sort me out. :roll: 2ww has been a lot less stressful since I knew that I would not bleed. I am really relaxed and resigned to the outcome as feel nothing at all. At least getting the result tomorrow beats Monday morning in work. I can stay in my PJs all weekend & not worry about anything other than X Factor and Strictly Come Dancing!! :wink:

Thanks for everything. Be on here tomorrow as soon as I know.

Love
Carolyn

Girls

You are all fab. :lol: Wish I could give you all good news.

Well poas again first thing. Digital this time and shouted back at me - NOT PREGNANT. :evil: No Xmas pressie for me & my family. No fairytale.

Been to clinic for blood test but the total melt down has started. I feel like I have been hit my a train. :cry: :cry: :cry:

I just cannot believe why we have had 13 embies back (the last 3 from a 21 year old) and none of them want to stick. My tubes have been opened. I have had two hysteroscopies which say that I am normal. My immunes are all normal. My chromosones are ok. My dh had a TESA this time. I have given up booze, caffeinine, taken vitamins, herbs and done acu regularly. Not a vague hint of a positive out of 5 fresh cycles.

I am not sure what else we can do to make this work. Guess that this is getting to the end of the road for us now. Or at least we have to start thinking about that. :roll: Not sure how much more we can take emotionally or financially. I guess that I naively figured if we did enough tries at ivf & worked hard at everything then it would work for us eventually. But may be we are one of those couples for whom even ivf cannot solve our issues. :cry: :cry: :cry:

I'll check in later when they call.

Thanks for listening and being there. Not sure what I would do without all of you.

Lots of Love
Carolyn
