Hi all

thanks for your support...
had a good weekend away lots of talks cuddles shouts cries and :wink: making up!!!! :wink: but eventually came home to a compromise of 1 more cycle.. now the dilema to have our lovely frosties pu back...or to have another go at fresh ....
Can totally see your point Gail...i too dont wanna loose my frosties ( especuially when i got a brief 5wk 4 days bfp but a BFP with the last eggies) The frosties will take less out of my bosy as only 4wks of drugs and no horrible BCpills. But a lower % of taking. A fresh will take more out of my body and system but a higher %.
ah :twisted: @#$#%^ ... so just going t wait and se what the cinic say ans suggest for tests and next steps ...then we will see.

am shattered but more hopeful for the future now in our relationship...bouoght some chrsitmas decorations :? :shock: amazing that i can even think of this now...had a cry at all the baby first christmas baubbles x x beautiful glass ones with hand drawn designs ...thoughgt of our baby pheonixes Katie Mia ( and MIA Diasy) and smiled through the tears. whether we have a baby or not it has been some journey...
i have made so many friends with you pheonixes....my love to you all

Oh jen, my heart goes out to you, I cry with ya... xxx
It's not easy this journey, i know what u mean about frozen verses fresh, you have to go with the best for you and higher % of BFP, however if it was me, i would do FET, and then try another fresh, but its not me its you.... so wait 'n' see what your doc's ssay, and go with it...... what ever you do, you must believe it WILL work, and must think, what if i'd done the other way.......
I cry always about kids, and children and babies etc..... A girl at work is mega broody and wants kids, she's not even married yet, but goes on about wantting kids all day, and i have to pretend i hate 'em, as i just cant face every1 knowing, thats hard for me sometimes......
We wont be trying tmt til 2010..... so i know that, but that the way it is, patience is the key thing, one day it'll happen!! and it will foryou too Jen....

thanks nicki and Julie...you and the pheonixes keep me going....

kate will update the list and add your new cycle to January x x x :D :D gives us all someone to cheer at in the new year..well until Julie drops lazy boy :wink: ( not on the floor mind in the bed )lol x x

IM have contacted me ...ass its our last cycle they eant me to have an investigatib=ve hysteroscopy ( check shape of womb and for polps fibroids etc) and doppler to check lining & blood flow there. I have also asked for immune tests they dont think i need but i want becsaue of MS...so it will add up to about #1500 (pounds) if we go to IM or #4670 if wego to Glasgow privately??? amazing differance in price eh!!! okay we still have flights and hotel to book for IM but hey what a differance.
Am seeing my GP on friday 1st just to check in case we can have it done on nhs ( doubt it but have to coverr all bases eh!!!! well i am Scottish :wink: )so it looks like ( after Christmass for test s jan or feb then FET in march x x x working on this will be our last one is hard x x x but after Gail said katie was a FET, and also kates BFP was a FET i have some hope now on FET !!!! still have 30% the IM doc said better than 3% with own eggies x x x

catch ya all later am so tired and fighting a cough cold so going to chill
love jen

Great news Jen, something positive to look to. We all know we feel better knowing something is being done. The price is great in comparison. You take care and chill before that cold takes hold xx

I have nothing to report - not overdoing things but do have handover stuff to sort for work as finish in two weeks so bit short on net time for personals. Hope all well xxx

Hi all,

Have not been on the board for a few days. Missed everyone.

Jen - Hope your feeling better with the cold. So you have decided to do the FET, 2 perfect embies waiting there, that's what I certainly would do too.. So many people get BFP from frozen cycles, I have a feeling this is the one for you!

Nicki - Sorry about your feeling down sometimes, especially with an insensitive coworker :( There's this older lady at my work who used to ask about when I'm going to have kids constantly. I finally had to tell her we are having fertility problems, and that still didn't shut her up! With the holidays coming, it's easy to feel blue, wondering how the heck another year has passed so quickly. We'll have to cheer up together and look at the bright side: we won't have to get up in the middle of the night and change diapers for a while :)

Julie - take care of yourself and baby. Pretty soon you Will have to get up and change the diapers :)

Hi to everyone else too.

As for us, I'll start the estrace next Monday, and during the next cycle, they'll measure the lining etc at various cycle days. We put an ad in the local university paper for egg donor, and got one response so far (they call our clinic directly, so it's anonymous). We are keeping our fingers crossed. If this doesn't work out, we'll have to with this agency, which costs a lot more.

Judy

Hi Girls :D

Hope you are all well. I am fine - just tired and not enough hours in the day. Time is flying!!! Went for a meal with friends on Saturday to Frankie & Bennys which was nice. Trying to catch up with everyone before I finish work and I can now say "I finish work next week!!!" - Yippee. Need to have a proper spring clean at home...don't have the inclination or the energy at the mo. All tidy and had good clear out and carpet cleaner booked for 18th Dec. Hoping to do a room a day when finish. Nursery finished now - will post pics on photobucket at some stage.


Nikki - Sorry missed you on MSN! Didn't realise until I went to bed - thought I had turned PC off! I feel fine ta. At midwife on Friday for usual check up. Just suffering with my joints - very arthritic when get up in a morning..... Head down last time I went so hope "he" hasn't turned back. As for your concernes re the pill I think I have said before but it is personal choice but I couldn't do it. Never say never is what i say. My AF were a nightmare but something niggled me and I couldn't take the pill on chance. Enjoy Newc xx

Jen - how you feeling? Glad you have managed to come to compromise with Adam - any news from GP appointment on Friday? Hope you had a great time with your sis over the weekend x

Judy - Any news on the donor? Really hope it works out for you. I notice you started yesterday...hope all goes well. Keep us posted.
Gail - Hows you? Have you managed to speak to work yet about not going back?? Hope enjoying your new job and things working out round it.

Hello to everyone else. Looking forward to update from you Lis when you get the opp xx

Hi Girls :D

Have missed you all. Just been trying to catch up with last few pages of posts.

Julie - wow not long now hun! Sounds like you are busy busy. I remember dh doing so much with the house and me cleaning and ironing like mad for some reason! You must be so happy to be finishing work. I know i was ecstatic! How are you feeling abut impending labour? And how does dh feel about it? Dh was scared but turned out to be fantastic support. Take care of you and lazy boy :wink: xx

Jen - what a roller coaster you have had hun. xx So glad you are having another go. If it helps, I have a friend who had 3 fresh ivf's all bfn then went on to have bfp also with a frostie. Glad you and dh had a good chat about it. And you sound like you've got a good Christmas to enjoy too- you deserve it doll. Drink lots of champers as it'll be your last year to enjoy it before the BFp. Hugs xxx

Nicki - buddie! You sound on fine form, miss you too. Will try text more often. Things are starting to get easier. You are so busy with lots of lovely things to look forward to. You will love Edinburgh at Christmas make sure you go to German Market on Princes Street Gardens, so Christmassy. So you've made a decision re cycling again - is that nhs in 2010?? or will it have to be private?? xxxx

Kate - that's great your cycling again in January :D Hope your not burning yourself out with the job. You sound a very busy girl. Hope you can chill over Xmas hols xxx

Gail - wow! Katie is pulling herself up on the furniture, that's quick! You are quite right re the job. That way you can see Katie growing up and always be there for her and save on child care. It must be hard for you to then not having family around. I didn't realise I would have missed mine as much as I do. Look forward to seeing the photos on photo bucket.

Judy - have you had any luck yet with finding a donor? Good luck xx

Lucy - hiya wherever you are! xx

Can't believe Mia is 10 weeks already. She started sleeping through the night 2 weeks ago altho doesn't do it every night. So starting to get more sleep! She also sleeps in her own room now - and yes Gail, looks tiny in her cot bed! She is still a hungry horace and is now almost 13 Ibs - another Ib and she will have doubled her birth weight already!

Still thinking a lot about potentially moving back to the West - Glasgow or Ayrshire. Going to make enquiries in January. Looking at house prices already.

As for Christmas, dh working a lot as in retail. Going to my bruv's on Christmas day and mum coming up for a week so really looking forward to that. And will try not to over eat as just got back into my old jeans (altho they're a bit on the tight side :oops: )

Off to get Mia from her little vibrating chair - she's getting fed up now and starting to cry !)

Love to all xxxx
