Jenn, I pm'd you my "real name". Bet your kids are getting so big! Lucy is great and I''m feeling pretty good, too. Ready to have this baby in some ways, but smart enough to know that I should enjoy just one kid for as long as I can! Thanks for bumping us up!

Take care all!

oh cool! I thought I had killed the thread - pleased to see some activity

Guess what - I am on my 2ww - had a natural thaw cycle transfer on Monday - unbelieveably my body co-operated and ovulated! I test on Monday 30th!.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Wow Angie that is exciting news! and yes, will you be POASing??

Glad to hear your body co-operated! Mine has been a bit more normal since having Rio, at least I get fairly regular cycles, hoping that bodes well for #2.

gosh i am feeling that I had better get my skates on for #2, I don't know what is holding me back, just has seemed like the right time until now I guess...and I don't want to do IVF again.

well now I will be waiting anxiously for the 30th..

glad to see all of you other girls on FB...

i reckon I might POAS but not til Sat - I don't have any tests in the house and I will try to hold off buying..

It was a fluke that we managed to catch the ovulation - it took over 2 weeks for my LH level to rise properly and we went to NZ in the middle too - I had about 12 blood tests too - so we will see

It's another natural thaw cycle - no drugs at all - this is what did the trick with Amelie so here's hoping..

If not, we will have one more frostie left and then that will be it - have decided won't do another stimulated cycle - just too stressful all around with our busy lives

Hope you are all well - Meg I can't believe 30 weeks - not long to go.

Must go , Amelie is very whingey today - I think her molars are coming through n- not happy at all.

Hi Angie! So are we still on track for a POAS for Saturday??? I have been thinking about you all week and hope all is going well.

I am also really reluctant to do another stim cycle, and am thinking of initially tracking my ovulation and then ummm, having sex at the right time?

I see you did 12 blood tests, how far apart were they??

Good luck! Fee

I POAS on Thursday (way too early) and this morning - both neg. with Amelie the home test was a strong positive 2 days before the blood test so it is not hopeful this time.

Never mind - I just can't imagine doing another cycle as I am now 40 (ouch!) , taking Ams in for scans, juggling work, DH's job is making him work long hours - I can't see it happening.

I am ok with it though - it makes me realise even more what a miracle our little girl is and how incredibly lucky we are too have her - I am giving her even more hugs and kisses than usual this weekend.

She's been so good this afternoon - I dragged her around in her stroller for over 2 hours in crowded Melbourne round all the shops and she didnt whinge once - what a little gem.

Re the blood tests - it was over about 3 weeks while they were tracking the LH surge which started quite high but then didn't go anywhere for a while and then finally did and that's when we had the transfer - also had progesterone checked - all was fine, hence the natural thaw cycle - just looks like the embie itself wasn't upto it.

Had a 2 or 3 scans too - the first with Ams present and she freaked out - completely out of character - didn't like what Dr D was doing to her mummy which made me realise I didn't want to take her to them again...

Hope all well with you - Rio must be 2 now - or is it 3 - I have totally lost count!

Hi to all the other sistas.

Hey Angie

Sorry that the signs are not looking too good this time. Amelie sounds like a great little girl. Rio is hard work when I take him shopping - I usually have to give him lots of Wiggles stuff to look at - we are going to the wiggles tomorrow actually, very excited!

Wow, scans again huh, that's a blast from the past. So not looking forward to that! I will do my blood tests (to check on iron, thyroid and stuff) then go to the clinic early next year I think, may make appointme tomorrow!

Well I certainly hope the official test is positive, otherwise I am glad that you have such a positive outlook - I know I am a lot less desperate now that I have my one lovely baby!

Hi to all the other girls!

Well girls I got a result of 3 - they look for at least 100. So "some implantation" but it's not a goer.

I have to have another blood test on Thursday to check levels not rising as it could indicate an ectopic - I really hope it goes down to 0 ( I have AF so hopefully is ok)

In some ways doing IVF is even harder when you have a little one to look after - AMs has already had to watch me have countless blood tests - but I am drawing the line at taking her to scans - no way.

Fee - I know what you mean about having one lovely baby and enjoy the Wiggles, Rio!

I am so sorry Angie. We will keep our fingers crossed for the "right" thing to happen on Thursday.
I know what you mean about taking your child with you to IVF stuff. My dd had to go with us for the past three. She did pretty good, but it is still stuff you hate her to experience.
I am going to be attempting again this summer, but have changed clinics so that I will be close to my mother and she can help out.

You have such a positive outlook on things. Just give Am's lots of extra hugs:)
