Thanks jenice we are on tenderhooks but delighted all the same after 7 yrs to see a positive pregnancy test again is a miracle and makes me emotional.
I thought it was you who posted to ghost, i dont know anything about dominant follies but even if they could retrieve and freeze it would be great. I hope all goes well for you tomorrow and you are not cancelled, i have to admit FET is much easier. Will ck on you tomorrow

Gi, thanks so much for your encouragement I need it. I did ask ghost about cycle and it didn't sound to positive. Maybe I could @ least retrieve the eggs. I'm so happy for you keep thinking positive. The more nausea I had the more I felt it was real when i was pregnant. You have been on a long journey and have found your treasure!!!!!! When do you go for ultrasound? Enjoy every second of it, it is precious :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Gi I haven't been cancelled yet!!!!!!! My follicles are growing slowly increase follistim tonight.bloodwork tomorrow. Some of my follicles are 10mm and around 12.5mm and 13.5mm. What do you think, do you think I have a chance another week of stims left to grow them. How many eggs would they need to retrieve when you did IVF? I have 13 or 14 follicles all together. I'm feeling like I might have a chance :) How are you feelin these days? Talk to you soon.

Jencie thats great news!!! From what i remember your follies are right on track, i took a few extra days on last cycle for them to grow i only had 12 in total in which they got 9 eggs, you have more than i did, i think you need around 3 -4 min. for ec so you are on track. I will do a "grow follies grow" dance for you xxxx

Gi, that's great news! I am keeping everything crossed for you- but this sounds really positive! Lots and lots of baby dust to you for a gorgeous little one of your own! :)

Jenice, best of luck and lots of PMA your way too for growing follies! :)

After thinking I was totally fine after the whole miscarriage, I went into work yesterday to find two of my colleagues who I work quite closely with are both pregnant! And they were showing their scan pics of their babies. I am truly happy for them as it's such an exciting time for any woman, but I can't help but be reminded I am not there myself. I came home and cried to my DH- the first time I've cried since discovering I had miscarried. I guess it's all swings and roundabouts!

Star wishes thanks for your encouragement!! I must say it is very hard to be happy for others when you work harder and desire a baby even more than them.My first tubal pregnancy I had tried for 5months to get pregnant only to find out I was pregnant and had to have surgery.It almost feels as if someone punched you in your gut :( Everyone @ work @ that time was getting pregnant too.Girls with birth control patches and other women who were premenapausal who were 43 years old, I wanted to scream. If you can just walk away when they talk about it in front of you.People used to kid and say it was in the water cause I really mean everyone was pregnant. I really think it is easier to get pregnant after you have been.Just drink alot of H20 @ work . Keep your spirits up :)

Starwishes 1 didnt cry after my d&c for 6 wks but a friends pregnancy triggered it off even though i was delighted for her as she suffers from recurrent m/c i was soo sad. I would love to give you big hug, my partner j is still finding it tough dealing with our loss and is so scared of this pregnancy he is trying not to get excited as last time he was nearly shouting it from rooftops, i am trying to be optimistic for both of us and keep telling myself its a different pregnancy and the embryos were even better quality than last time.

Jenice no real signs yet though i get a bit lighted, still cramping on/off and bb's only slightly tender i am praying for morningsickness!!! I didnt have it last time, it would make it seem real though i took another test today (thats 7 in total :lol: ) and line is very dark, I will take a digital again on Sat to see if the number of wks increase. Hope your little follies are working really hard xxxx

Thank you Gi and Jenice for your kind words of support. You are right Jenice, when you say you just have to walk away from people talking about their pregnancies. I think you have to edit the situation around you and try to not focus on them too much- especially the ones who keep moaning about being pregnant. One girl even said to me that she doesn't know what all the fuss is about and that she thinks pregnancy is really overrated- then asked me if I agree! And she knows I have difficulties... talk about tactless!!

Jenice, that's great you have 9 follies looking strong.I will be willing them on for you! :) x
Gi, I had to giggle at the 7th pg test you have taken - I would be just like you! You have to keep convincing yourself there's something really there!
I can understand how your DH must be caught between being cautious yet so excited. It sounds like a good sign that you're cramping a bit and are a little sore... obviously the little fella is doing that to you!
Anyway am thinking of you and the little one. :) x

Have a nice evening ladies xx

Starwishes- I know it can be very upsetting.I was @ a b-day party and had to over hear a woman complain about how she is pregnant again one after the other.Everyone @ my daughter's b-day party she went to was either pregnant or had a little one in their arms not to mention my friend is pregnant also.I had just got off the phone with the nurse saying they had said they were going to cancel but would talk to the Dr, here I was about to go into the party with tears going down my face my husband hadto go in for me for a little while.I never thought second hand infertility would be so hard.I have to go to these parties and everyone assumes when they see my daughter that I have no infertility problems and seem more willing to ask how come I don't have another.I know they don't mean harm by the questions but then I feel like I have to explain my fertility problems and doin IVF,They look like they put their foot in their mouths and embarrassed .So then we both feel awkward.........Sometimes I enjoy it when they are squirming :) Now preschool will start and will meet new moms who will eventually ask the same questions. I asked my hubby if his co-workers or friends ever ask questions cause it has been years since our daughter.No was the answer, men have it easy :) I think you will have to walk away if your co-workers continue to talk about their pregnancies which I hate to say it but when your pregnant you have tunnel vision and they probably won't even realize how uncomfortable and painful for you to hear about their pregnancies.Just focus on you don't put your energy into something you can't control.Redirect the conversation if they ramble about baby stuff or cut it short.It will take time to heal and you will have to think about where you attend functions.Last year I remember going to a christening I refuse to miss functions but I will not stare @ the baby and my hubby said lets go look @ the baby.I was upset afterwards in the car and it will soccer punch you in the face somedays with the reality of infertility.Just keep on trying and don't let anyone get you down :)

Jenice, thank you for your words of encouragement and your stories to show how hard it is for people like us. I know exactly what you mean how the reality of it all can 'soccer punch you' in the face! I will remember that one when I next have an unexpected crying episode.
Anyway have you definitely had to cancel or are the follies okay? I am thinking of you and keeping fingers crossed for you and also sending lots of thoughts and prayers your way. Keep up the PMA :) x

Gi- I hope all is well with you in the emerald isle and it's not raining too much! I am going over again to see my family in a couple of weeks. I always feel being out in the Irish countryside just puts everything into perspective, especially around where my family live- you can walk for hours without meeting anyone but cows and horses! :D
