Pheonixes Rising

Postby Jeni Babes » Tue Jan 03, 2006 9:42 am

Hi everyone

I am waiting for a consultation to review my BFN of dec '05 then looking at starting tmt later in the year, probably May.

Until then all this waitng around does leave me at a loose end not being part of a thread. I got to thinking that there must be more girls out there in the same boat...what do you think?

As for the name of this thread...I don't like the name limbo, to me it means 'all life, is on hold'...So i chose the name Pheonix Rising, as in rising out of the ashes to fly again. Smita had said something similar to me when i had the result of my BFN so the inspiration is from that. (Thank you Smita.)

So if all this rings a bell and if you wanna join just cut and paste the list and add your name...


hope to here from you all soon :)

love jen

Hi Jeni

What a good idea, I'm not due to see my consultant until Feb/March time and won't be starting treatment until probably March/April.

If it was up to me I would be starting asap, but my consultant wants me to have 2 AF before I start again..!

Once again good idea to start this thread.

Hi Jen, Lucy and Nicki

This is definitely the thread for me. I am also waiting for my consultation on the 17th January after my BFN in Dec 05, then will probably start FET in April / May time.

I am having a break from the IVF for a few months as I feel I need to get fit and healthy again. I had OHSS in the summer and ended up in hospital for 10 days then had FET 3 months later and I now need time to get fit and healthy. I have joined a gym and im determined to lose the weight that the drugs have made me put on. I like your diet Nicky, im sat here drinking me herbal tea, much rather have a glass of wine. :P You should have a bit of cheese on your baked beans, not too much as its high in calories but it does have protein in it.

Ive also booked a week away in March to go to Egypt, so that me and DH have something to look forward to.

Plan to start Accupuncture again Feb / March time, not that I enjoyed it last time :?

Take care

Hi Pheonixes

glad to have you all here...sounds like we are all in the healthy mind body emotions and Spirit phase, with all the healthy eating and drinking tons of water. I too have started healthy eating today.

Lucy- welcome. It is a good idea to give your body time to recover after all that you have been through. It also helps the mind and emotions heal. I have added you to the list...the countdown has started to the next stage...good luck sweetie :)

Nicki- good luck with the diet and healthy eating.Sounds like you have started well. Have you set a time frame and much are you hoping to loose? Have you decided to do IVF or IUI again? let us know how the aromatherapy and reflexology go...oh!!! and good luck with the house move :)


gail- welcome :) . Yeah you have been through some roller coaster honey. Good on you joining the gym. I thought about it but have decided to walk a lot more instead. The fertility drugs are unreal for putting on weight arn't they. I managed to after Julys drugs to get back into shape only to find that in DEc the drugs just piled on more weight. I was trying to eat healthily too!!! Good luck with the gym and healthy eating plan. I too have been avoiding the wine tonight and am drinking peppermint tea or hot water....(I can't stand camomile...yeuk)

Anyway everyone...here's to us... Image
lets all make a BIG wish for all our dreams of pregnancy and babies to come true in 2006!!!

love jen

Hi girls!

Can I please join?? I hope I qualify - although I've not had any tmt yet, I'm in limbo because I'm waiting on dh's testicular biopsy as he is azoospermic - that's in February'06, then I'll be in limbo after that depending on the result and what we decide to do - I've been told it'll be July for tmt so loads more limbo time!!

So far the only thing I've planned is Little Britain in May!! :lol:

Look forward to chatting with you all if you'll have me!! :D :D

Hi Lisa, Don’t you just hate all the waiting around, it doesn’t seem to get any better once you start the treatment bus as long as we all end up with BFP’s that’s what really matters. :D

I went back to work yesterday Jen and it was definately an effort, went to the gym after work and that was even more of an effort, feel really good for it though. I drink a lot of hot water, I think Camomile smells worse than it tastes but its not a favourite of mine :?

Hey Jeni, thanks for adding in my dates - yes this will be our frst icsi or it may be donor iui depending on Feb's result but I'm so uptight about that one already I can't bare to think about a negative result. Was really lucky with the Little Britain thing - all dates were sold out but then dh heard of another date, I couldn't find it on any of their sites but then I phoned ticketmaster on the off chance and hey presto, they had tickets for this extra gig - think someone was taking pity on me :( cos that was only 2 weeks after dh's diagnosis and it so cheered me up!! :lol: :lol:

Gail, yeah already the waiting's killin me and as you say I'm not even on that tmt bus yet for another few months. The wait for dh's biopsy is making me more anxious by the day - I really don't know how I'm going to cope if its a BFN - I want his child so much it hurts.

On a lighter note (sorry about that girls - momentary lapse in the PMA :shock: )I'm also on the green tea (Nicki - 2 cups already so far today) and I'll give you a laugh about all this holisitic well being. Thought I'd look in to acupuncture for dh prior to February (23rd to be exact) - dh looked so worried when I mentioned it because not only does he dislike needles but he thought they were going to be put into his willy and other love accessories!!! :D :roll: :D

Hi all,

can i plz join u 2?

Jen-what a wonderful idea and what a wonderful name u picked.

I would really like to think of a phoenix rising…unfortunately i really am in the limbo at the mo. We might be moving soon, or hubby might go abroad for 9 month. So I don’t even know if we will be able to do another cycle or not. I can’t go looking for work because I don’t even know which country we will end up living in…

All fun and games huh?

Never mind, hopefully we don’t have to wait much longer for decisions to be made by hubbys employer.

Hope all u girls r keeping well.

Hi Ladies

can I be a phoenix too?
I've had my post ectopic review and am now waiting for first post pregnancy AF. Which is taking FOR EVER :evil:
After that I need to have a HSG as they found during the operation that my other evil tube was a bit bleughhh. Can't cycle again, so my guru tells me, until 3 AF's. So given the state of things now I estimate that will be in 2008/9 :D Will also depend i guess on state of Tube of Satan. If its blocked, what to do? Call Dyno-Rod.
Meanwhile, back at the lab..... 14 freezing top graders are getting bored of waiting for rescue to Whombland and are starting to get rowdy. Am afraid of Embryo asbo being administered.

Anyway, positive vibes to us all and may all of our love accessories (great phrase!) have their day in the sun :D Not literally :oops: Unless that floats your yacht of course :wink:

Lots of love

Welcome Sally and Lola,

Sally I think you get the prize for the waiting game if your dh goes away for 9 months. Fingers crossed you find out soon.

Lola - you made me laugh hard you crazy girl - keep it up its therapy!!

Jen doll, I know that feeling so well - today a colleague of mine came in to work full of the joys because her son has just had his first baby born 5 days ago - of course not knowing anything about my siuation she thrust these mega close up pictures in my face of her new born grand daughter still lying in the incubator (was 5 weeks prem), then all my other colleagues came through into the room where we were standing and started oooh ing and ahhhh ing. After a few mins I went back to work and left them chatting making me look like the cold hearted ***** from Hell :twisted: but I couldn't face to stand there and ask interested questions whilst my heart was breaking.

So Gail, I took a leaf out of your book and went to a body pump class which did a fab job of cheering me up!( gym cheering you up - am I mad???....)

Well good night ladies or should I say phoenixes

Hi everyone

I had a letter from my consultant today, my appoitment is on 22nd Feb. I am hoping he will let me cycle in March.

I had time off from work when I miscarried, I am due back on Monday and aren't looking forward to it. A work colleague phoned me today to see how I was (doesn't know my situation) anyway she told me she was expecting, so when I get back I will have to sit with a close team of people all talking babies as another colleague is preg and one ladie has just come back from maternity leave...... So not looking forward to it.

Lisa I know exactly how you feel, it is hard isn't it, I know they don't know our situation so we can't blame them but at the same time we don't want to be aroud them when they are all talking babies and celebrating...

Anyway everyone take Care

Speak soon.
