Meg: I'm thinking cruel is a good word for it. do you think $500 will do it? If it is $1000, then i could get a pair of bright blue sparkly Manolo Blahniks AND a purse to match (or a custom made, sparkly blue purse sharps container... fab :lol: ).

Mia: Hey, what is this about you being able to cut your PIO in half last cycle??? I am green w/envy! I always end up at the 2cc until my bfn. ahhh, i'm thinking you will have a nice fat beta already on the 4th (how many d'y put in.. 2, right?) and it won't be an issue... and you will have found out a day early to boot! Now if it is neg (which, it won't b/c i am knocking on wood as we speak :wink:), you can always make them repeat it. Sooo, i'm figurin' you are good either way :D.

I'm thinking dh is feeling bad for me... just called and blabbered to him about this... i don't think he understood it at all!!! He just said.... you are talking to your forum friends about this, right? I said "the Sisterhood has been notified". Anyway, he knew i was a bit off kilter tonight, so is taking me out for a fab dinner :D .

Ciao!

sorry Angie... missed you while typing. Yeah, here it is 6:30 pm (West Coast) so i guess that makes us 20 hrs behind? So you are eating lunch at 2:30??? Ah, yes, still wed pm here.. maybe i will just fly down under... monday will come a day sooner :lol: . Yep, doing blasts, we only have 10 days after to wait... 15 days in total. ooo, and haven't you heard, "big chocolate bars" have been shown to do wonders for "foggy synarel head". btw, how is the snorting going? This was a totally disjointed ADD post...

btw, ladies. I think i have my feet back underneath me. I apparently had forgotten the "hold on tight" part of "I am strapping myself in and holding on tight". Grip is back. Don't get me wrong... not a happy camper. But, now snugly buckled in again :wink:. Thanks all!

Ladies, have been lurking but due to constant and inconsiderate interruptions from colleagues and clients have not been able to post! Lovin the new home by the way it is damn fine.

Bloody Hell Sass when will the torment end. I agree your assessment of damages is on the low side we need to be talking at least four figures, maybe five....

Ang it's only a matter of time before you're snorting and shooting up with the best of the twitchiest junkies. By the way, does anyone else have to wear long sleeves in summer to cover their "track marks?" Well done on working out the time difference between us and the US Gals. I couldn't do that even on my good days let alone with brain fog. By the way for you US ladies, I am two hours behind Ang and so it is around midday here....I also thought you were all insomniacs!!

Well just so you ladies know I have a date with dildo cam tomorrow. I will obviously need to tizzy myself up for the occasion. Didn't get to have a pedicure but do have some nail polish to apply (thanks to Sass for lifting the standards around here). I will also try to dig up some undies with no holes in them....Still a bit unsure about the shoe issue, will have to play it by ear I think...

Um, Fee? Is is just me or do the undies really not matter? I mean, they are usually just laying in the bathroom on the chair the whole time the RE is in the room! I have a date with Mr. Dildocam Friday, so I suppose I'd better start thinking about things like that as well. Usually, I leave my socks on so I don't have to paint my nails, but maybe I'll treat the ultrasound technician and do them up nice....hmmmm. Tough decisions!

You're absolutely right about the undies Meg except in my case they just get put on a chair in the same room as the assembled masses. Accordingly whilst they won't be scrutinised on my person, they could well be seen on the chair. I just have a few particularly bad pairs that I need to remember not to wear.....

I thought about going with the socks (as I pondered the shoe issue and other hard questions about IVF), problem is it's gonna be pretty hot tomorrow, i'll be on my way to work after the appointment, and I don't think I can get away with the shoe/sock combo at the office... I'm veering towards sandals at this time...

I think you should give the technician a bit of a treat. Can't imagine their job is an awful lot of fun....

How come you have a date with dildocam anyway??? I always thought that once you were knocked up they just did an external scan??? tell me I'm not wrong or does the horror continue???

Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh, loving our new home!!!!, this thread rocks!!!!!......

Sorry for being MIA today, but the insensitive people at work didn't let me come to write in my favourite forum.............

Fee, good luck at your appointment tomorrow!, I guess you could just hide your undies under your pants on the chair like I do :lol: , that way you don't have to waste time choosing your undies when you should be using it painting your nails as a good member of the sisterhood!!

Sassy, love how your intro for this forum, it came out really good!!!. Sorry about your RE changing the dates around, I guess we could give him some kind of award.....not quite sure which one though, mmmmmmm

Well, I should get going, DH's birthday starts in about a minute, see you guys tomorrow!!!!!

Yep Fee, sorry to break it to you but you still get the joys of the dildocam even after that much wanted positive. It's not so bad, it's actually pretty cool the things you see. This time we have to see the heart, though, or I will officially have a nervous breakdown. I'm really kind of starting to freak out about it, but am trying to keep myself strapped in and holding tight as Sassy so eloquently put it (sorry to steal your words, Sassy, but if you wouldn't use such good ones, I wouldn't be tempted!)

And I'm soooo jealous that you're wearing sandals. It's officially 11 degrees out here right now, so sandals are definitely not an option. I heard Friday it's only going to be a high of 5 all day. Yucky. I'm ready for summer!

Hi Vicky--hope you have a happy DH's birthday!

Well, I'm pretty sure I'm off to bed (of course, I reserve the right to check the boards one or two more times before actually crawling in between the sheets!)

Hope you all have a good day or night or whatever it is where you are!!!! (Seriously, doesn't it sometimes blow your mind that we're all so far away from each other? I mean, we feel so close. I can't think of many people in my life who are closer than you ladies to me right now, yet a lot of you are half way round the world! Crazy!!!!!)

Hello Ladies.... I love the new thread...

Well I am in the office now... I am actually the only one way ahead time wise... now its 9 am (we are +3GMT)...so my replies are late :(

Guess what.... my parents are coming today....Yippy...it has been 6mths i didnt see them.... since she's in lebanon and it was a complete suprise... it couldn't have been a better timing... I am glad she's visiting... I could use some spoiling now...

Sassy I know how hard it is to extend the wait.... its horrible... try to distract urself.... which is even harder!

Meg and Fee good luck with the scan.... the wearing socks thing made me laugh... every time i have a scan i'd have to think the night before what to wear...as if its a date!!!

Vicky...happy birthday for your DH's hope you had a good time... My DH's bday is march 31.... still alot of time i am planning to attend the hourse racing cup... which is a big thing here in Dubai... you know with the big hats and all... ooohh maybe i could wear something to match blue stilletos...

Mia ...the confusion with the tests dates is so annoying...they should keep track...but I am sure things will be fine!!!

Angie...how was lunch and the chocolate bar??? You should see my kitchen....chocolate everywhere....

by the way ladies... how do you think of DH cope with the IVF...tests and all this... I mean we have this lovely home... but what do they have???? I feel bad for them... :?

Hey ladies (if you're still awake). I know what you mean Meg about the distance etc... you guys know more about my IVF experience than even DH (I spare hime some of the more gruesome details). Quite kind of me I think. It's great to have you all here though! I think I may have had a meltdown by now without this place.

I can fully understand your freak out, I would be freaking about everything....I'm sure everything will be fine, really looking forward to hearing how you go (guess I'm gonna have to finally work out how to use the home computer...)

Hey Vicky, hope you are having a great birthday for DH....I'm with you on the insensitive work people. I'm gonna have to start shutting my office door and looking surly so they will back the hell off!

Hi girls... forum is hopping.

I'm w/you, Vicky... my panties go under the pants on the chair... then there are no worries! Enjoy dh bday!

Patie: enjoy your parents' visit!!! oooo, i have heard of the horse races there... very fancy. got your hat all picked out???

Meg: fri, huh? oooo, can't wait to hear about the heartbeat. i, too thought the joys of dildocams ended at bfp... who knew?? oh, and you can steal my words anytime :wink:

Fee: so the dildocams start again. How exciting for you! :? . Yes, i see that the sock/shoe v. sandal controvery is quite the question. Hmmmm. I agree one of the deeper ivf issues. Now, as long as you don't have toenails so long that they curl over the top, i'm thinking sandals are an acceptable choice.

Yeah, i am w/you guys... the whole "chatting w/people on the other side of the world" thing is a bit trippy at times. You guys know FAR more than anyone else in my life re: this whole IVF mess (oh, i mean journey :wink: )

Forgot to tell you that yesterday by Dr called to comfort me and he said that the only way for me to get pregnant is to do it over and over and over again....

Yesterday it hit me that this was my 5th time.... :shock:

Anyway.... Do you think its better to change drs or stick to one??
