Hi Tayna,
Ya for good news for you to move foward aye:) Fingers crossed your IVF will be a huge success:) I found all that info you said about your tubes a bit over my head - reading between the lines though, i think you said "they are not 100% if they are blocked but think they may be?)

How long till AF due?

Im only about 1 week of AF now - never did i think i would be looking forward to it (always means not preggy:() However this time, means i can get my last lot of tests done and through to the clinic - then the big count down to a scan at Ovulation and then the following Ovulation it should be all go. So exciting to finally have something happening.

Gargy,
How are you? Any news with contacting your KD?
Thinking of you heaps (Was thinking of you this am when i was in the shower - wondering how you are coping).

Keep in touch girls, its so good to share the highs and lows with those that understand.
Its not our ideal way of having a family, but i know its going to be our ideal family.

WOO HOO!!

KD is going in to check his swimmers tomorrow morning - then we move to counselling.

FINALLY we are moving forward (I'd almost given up hope).

Polly,

Brilliant that things are happening so fast for you. May your Af come quickly!

Tanya,
That's great news that they are looking after you financially as well as medically. Thinking of you...

I am so excited for you! It must be so great to be "doing something" I know how that feels and it is a good feeling. At least you feel that things are moving forward and that is great-you must be elated!!!

Polly
I hope that you are doing well I know that you are just sitting there waiting as well.

I hate waiting! I really do. Oh well. Anyhow....I am just hanging out waiting for the next step. We will get out calendar on the 3rd!

I was going to tell you the radiologist said that my tubes were open and then when I got to my RE he said that he didn't believe they were and like you said if they are open it isnt very much and he said that he wouldnt do the IUI until I had a laprascopy to determine what was going on. I decided that I didnt want to do that considering the costs of everything so I decided to just go with IVF because of that. So the long and short of it is really that we dont not know what is going on and the tubes may or may not be open!!!!! I have learned so much more than before I went in for the test! LOL Sorry to be so confusing about it. :)

Hi everyone,

Well KD must have had the test done because we got the bill :roll: I haven't contacted him yet as I'm having a very lazy weekend - I only got out of my PJ's an hour ago (at 3pm!!).

How is everyone else going??

Hi Polly, Hi Tanya, Hi everyone else...

Got a funny DI story to tell that I'm sure you'll appreciate...

I paid for the sperm test for our SD and the IVF clinic told me that I could go to Medicare (public health care system) to get a rebate. So I trotted down to my local centre to do the paperwork.

My number comes up and I am served. Now my SD's name is on the top of the account. The customer service person asked me in an accusing voice (as if I am trying to pull a fast one) "Who is this person?" I said quite matter of factly "Well, actually it's our sperm donor." Of course, this just happens to be the time when there is a break in the general noise in the room, and the lady next to me half turns to listen. That's when I start to go red.

I have never seen someone run so fast to their supervisor as this woman did. The supervisor, who had obviously dealt with this before, just told her what to do. The officer couldn't look me in the face. We both dealt with the paperwork as if I had not said anything. Then I left.

It's amazing what things you never even think will be a problem can floor you! I told this story because I knew you would all understand.

Hope you all have a brilliant Easter!!

Hi Polly, hi Tanya - I'm back!!

Starting to feel like a normal person again although my throat feels like it is full of sharp knives, particularly when I swallow!

Fantastic news for you both having your meds and going through the IUI process - let me know how you are going!!

Hi Gargy,
Welcome back - i hope by the time you read this you are feeling heaps better - knifes in your throat are less than they were or are gone! Not nice aye. At least you can put that all behind you now.

Well we are all waiting now aren't we! I keep thinking about all sorts of things - what does our donor look like - will be have attractive looking children, how can i be so shallow to even think that, has he got any abnormaties in his family, will i be mad that we didn't know that if something happens, why am i having these ungrateful feelings, how is my hubby feeling now its happening,how will i feel with that strangers sperm in me, how will i cope with the driving 5 hours there and then 5 hours home with all this on my mind the whole way, how will hubby feel, what will we talk about, how i will feel if i get my period and it doesn't work about both the potential baby and loss of money, how will i feel if i do get preganant and i MC and on and on and on...........

My mind is working over time.

But........on the upside, life is great, work is busy im keeping busy at home with sewing and gardening and doing things that i enjoy and just letting the time tick by - its hard to believe its nearly May and we are nearly half way though 2007 already!
Its not our ideal way of having a family, but i know its going to be our ideal family.

Hi Polly,

I think what you're describing is what everyone feels - particularly about what your child will look like - however a couple of questions about some of the things you said just in case you can minimize your stress...

1. Did the unknown donor come with some medical information? Ours do, although it was fairly minimal (eg - deafness in the family etc).

2. Do you and DH have a check in system? If I notice DH has started burying himself in the computer more than usual I generally sit him down, have a talk and make sure everything is ok before we continue with anything. My philosophy is I'd rather know upfront rather than be ambushed by something.

3. Can you stay overnight somewhere near the clinic rather than drive there and back? Would you be happier with that or would it be better to come home? DH and I went for a drive to the sea after I'd done both IUI's just to have a bit of a break and acknowledge what had happened before going home.

BTW I just went on a worry rollercoaster about whether I'm going to be a working or SAHM - talk about putting the cart before the horse!!! So you're not alone with the round and round thoughts going through your head.

Let me know how things go.

Tanya, how are things with you??
