Rio- I have been getting once a month from the OB and once a month from the perinatal. But right now the peri does not see me from week 12-20. After 20w I get monthly and then later every 2w from peri. I thought my monthly from the ob would be a u/s. It wasn't last time. Just a hb check. Which was good...but not nearly as good as having an u/s.

Kamaile- Yes I post a lot on the winter friends cycle. They are great. I keep track of this page, winter friends, and FEB due date on preg after treatment. Winter friends is most active. Not sure if you saw, I thought I posted it somewhere, I will be in Honolulu next weekend! Woo hoo! I finally got on my favorite trip! Virgin lava flows for me at Duke's. Oh and crab wontons...Oh I can't wait!

I hope you are all doing well. Time for me to go to bed. I'm in Amsterdam right now. I gotta get up in 7 hrs for work. ICK!

Kamaile- I'm working a trip to Honolulu. I get in this Friday evening and leave Saturday night on the red eye. So not there for very long. :( Long enough for my favorite food and to buy some chocolate covered macadamia nuts for everyone!

Hi Girls,

Well today I went for my scan and they said I gotta have the beurslin injections and go back to hospital in a weeks time as my lining is still to thick as im bleeding which is normal and have to lose more blood so when they look on the scan my lining should be nice and thin. So my next appointment is Thurs 9th Sep so we will see then what happens then hopefully I will start the patches for 2 weeks and still proceed with injections. Ill keep you informed. Its just so good to be back with all you girls not been back to the sep blog lol you are much better!!! And PA_ FA I think the baby dust on your way over would be good as I need all the luck. And hope this is the one or two lol dont think I can take the negative results again. Just struggling at the mo with work as they havent got an IVF policy so I can have the 2 weeks off. I may have to go off sick its all crap but just found out my supervisor is the maternity co- ordinator so she is on my side at least. And there are only 2 of us going through it who I meet today at work. So not only do I have you wounderfull girls now I have someone to talk to face to face. Its her first time bless her so I just filled her in on what happens. She has done her research about it i told her about this site and about you girls so if you see a girl called Ames on here thats my friend. Right speak to you soon. xxxxxx :P :wink:

Hey everybody

So great to hear all the pregnancies are progressing really well.

Rio - a truck load of baby dust heading your way on the prevailing westerlies - all the way from new zealand! Perhaps we'll end up on the same cycle board again.

Kismet - what fantastic news for you!

Lisa - am thinking about you and wishing you all the very best.

I've been mia for a while. A bit of a mixture of laziness and trying to clear my head of IVF stuff for a while. My body did me proud and miscarried naturally at about 8 1/2 wks -two weeks after I found out the pregnancy was definitely non-viable. I miscarried over about three weeks and then got my AF three days later. HCG had by this stage returned to zero. My RE recommended waiting another month before the FET. A month later and AF has arrived again so all going well FET should be in two to three weeks time. I'm very excited but also a bit nervous about boarding the roller coaster ride again.

Hi Ladies,

Ah your all sweet, well i went back to the hospital for my 1st scan and they found a cyst on my right overy not good :( but went with it as they said it will shrink. I was bleeding with the burslin but they said that was normal and had to wait till my lining was thin as at that time it was thick. I went for scan 2 for today and it went well my cyst has gone and ive started the patches to get my lining nice and thick. I have another scan on the Tues 20th Sep to see how im doing then hopefully 2 - 5 days after I will go in for ET!!! I'll keep you all posted. And its my birthday on Sun 12th sep so ill be a lil older :( .xxxxxxxx

PA_FA- When your over the essex area let me know lol come say hi.

Lisa32-Where exactly is Essex?

Kamaile- I think I have felt the baby 3 times last week. Not sure. I have an OB apt tomorrow. Not sure if they will do a scan using their crappy equipment. My official 20w apt at the perinatal is Sep 29. UGH...I can hardly wait!

Rio- I am so sorry you are delayed more...I guess the Docs know when everything is perfect right? Baby dust sweetie.

AFM- I have just returned from the inlaws house for the weekend. That was after flying for 6 days straight. UGH...I want to sleep for like 20hrs. LOL OB apt tomorrow at 1pm. Not sure if it is just a hb check or what. I just go with the flow now. I never know what is going on. LOL

I hope you are all well. :D

Hello Ladies,

Ive started my patches now changing it every other day which is fine and using the burslin, but just as i am getting used to that on Thurs 16th i have to have a second patch and change it every other day to. When I saw Amsey the other day she suggested to mark them with pen or ill get confused lol oh what fun the things us women have to do lol. I have my scan on the 20th sep to see if im ready for ET!!!! So ill keep you posted. As you see my mate Amesy is on board now give her loads of tlc as she needs it she is a star and i think she is wicked love ya amsey. :) :lol:

Kitty_mom - Thankyou i'm glad im starting again and this time round i feel very ready and hope it works out but if not ill try again and just know i have support from yourself and the other girls.

Tess69 - Thanks a lot just gotta get on with it and if its ment to be it will happen also good luck with you on your next cycle and will be crossing all i can possible.

PA_FA - Well you guys are more fun even though im probably ET at the end of September you girls are better to talk to, and Essex my dear is near London about an hour away. Just wish some of us could all meet up one day but its a bit hard when we are all over the place lol.

Riogirl71 - They said having the cyst is not a problem as its on my right overy, and they do not need it this time round as i have an embryo frozen so no treatment was delayed which is good and lucky it was not there on my second scan.

Speak to you all soon lots of baby dust to you all. :D :P :wink:
