Hi<br><br>Update for Beck: EC was Thursday last week and ET yesterday. Despite having 11 follies, only got 6 eggs. One was immature, so they ICSI-ed the other 5. 3 fertilised and they put them all back in yesterday. Am trying to rest but am bored already. Was advised not to go back to work, but don't know if I'll go mad at home!<br><br>Sending positive vibes to all those on 2ww in chatroom on Friday - Jules, Woppa, Fiona!<br><br>Also good luck to Beck and Debs for Tues EC. <br><br>Fingers crossed for all!<br>Love<br>Luce<br><br>

Hi everyone<br><br>Good luck for tom Becky and Debs! Don't forget to keep us posted...<br><br>Thanks for the +ve vibes Luce and well done on your transfer.<br><br>I'm due to (officially) test Friday, but just can't convince myself to think positive at all :( I'm so scared af's going to appear on Thursday (or sooner) as this is what happened to me the day before I was due to test last time. I don't know if it's a subconscious thing my mind's doing to cushion the hurt this time as I was so shocked last time and was soooooo devastated. I know there are no true 'signs' but I am getting all the pre-af symptoms I know my body goes thru (even down to my toilet/tummy behaviour which I won't elaborate on but basically I'm more constipated just before af then once it comes it all loosens up!!)<br><br>I'm now back at work and am dreading what to do if af appears. Last time I went into work the same morning and the day was truly a one from hell. No-one knows there except the one person I can trust who was on holiday, so I had to grin and bear it, then in the staff restaurant at lunch time I opened the doors to be confronted by a pair of baby twins on one of the tables with their mother who I didn't know but had heard through the grape vine had had IVF. Anyway loads of girls were cooing over her gorgeous babies, then I had to sit at the table next to them with my unsuspecting colleagues. I was just wondering whether the day could get any worse when suddenly my bosses boss appeared from nowhere in the seat next to me, who is really hard to talk to, and I had to make small talk with him when I just wanted to run away and die!!! ARRRGHHH!!! Never again!!<br><br>How are you getting on Fiona and Woppa? I hope you're coping better than me!<br><br>Keep me posted<br><br>LOL Julesxxx

Hi Jules,<br>I can totally relate to how you are feeling about work. I am so glad I am off. This cycle we went for councilling and it was all because there is a girl at my work who is pregnant!! She is the first out of us to get pregnant. Everyone knows what we are going through and she still insists in every other word being about her baby. She even asked my advice on what pram and furniture she should get. I'm getting good at walking away now!! I know its me being jealous of her but sometimes I wish she would just shut up. I think I mentioned to you all that although we live in Glasgow we have to travel to Dundee for our treatment(180 mile round trip) . One day she said to me "you would think it would be easier for you to go to a Glasgow hospital wouldnt it ?" So I snapped back at her and walked away " No it would be easier to have a good sh.g " (Excuse my language!!)<br>I felt so much better for saying it!!! <br>Anyway chin up girl and hopefully speak to you tomorrow in the chatroom<br>lol <br>Elaine<br>xxxxxx

Hi all,<br><br>Elaine - what a fantastic reply! Hope that shut her up for a good while.<br><br>Jules, you really are not alone in not coping well, and you could well have been describing the end of my last cycle, except my boss knows about the treatment, and let me leave work. Les cancelled his lessons (he's a driving instructor) and we spent some time together grieving.<br><br>This time I'm not letting that happen, Thats why I'm testing on the morning of day 12, so if its -ve and af arrives that day, I'd have got my crying over and done with (there abouts) before I go to work. I've already mentioned I'm also faced with a pg woman at work who told me that fateful day! <br><br>She now seems to be talking louder than ever when doing the 'babytalk' thing - or maybe its just me being sensitive.<br><br>I also woke up feeling a bit pre-af, but that's gone off again now. I've not mentioned this before, because I'm so scared of getting my hopes up, but I've had mild nausea ever since Monday-last (07/10). When I was briefly pg a long, long time ago (in another life, if you know what I mean), I had the most horrific m/s from really early on.<br><br>Keep resting, Luce and hope Beck and Debs OK after e/c.<br><br>Anyway, looking forward to the chat this eve when we can cheer each other up.<br><br>take care<br><br>Fiona xxxx

Hi Fiona and everyone else on the 2ww. I've been reading how you've all been getting on and am so pleased that you've got each other for support as it really does help you to keep a grip on things.<br><br>I'm off on holiday on Thursday so won't be able to read about your results until I'm back to work on 29th October. I just wanted to wish you all the luck in the world, and I'm keeping everything crossed for a successful result for you.<br><br>Hang in there, you're almost there.<br>Luv to all.<br>Julie x

Can somebody give me some advise.<br>I am on day 4 of 2ww and I have slight back ache and a heavy, blotted feeling in my lower stomach sounds silly but this is the only way to discribe the feeling I have.<br>Anybody know what this could be?<br>Love Debsx

Hi Debs<br><br>I'm sorry to hear about your back ache and heavy bloated feeling but please try not to worry as you are in the early days yet of the 2ww. I had the heavy bloated feeling you describe during the whole of the 2ww – don't forget your body's recovering from all the treatment and drugs so I believe this is quite normal.<br><br>If you are still worried though you have nothing to lose by giving your clinic a call to put your mind at rest, they are the best people to advise you.<br><br>Not sure if this had helped but the best of luck and keep us posted.<br><br>LOL Jules xxx

Hi ladies<br><br>Well it had to be bad news sometime, didn't it?<br><br>Today it has been confirmed that it didn't work for me this time. AF arrived late yesterday, so I tested myself this morning and it was a big fat negative. The clinic are testing anyway but even they think it'll turn up negative. My boobs have deflated and I'm no longer bloated, and they say this is an indication of it not working.<br><br>So, sorry ladies, I won't be joining you on the Pregnant After Treatment board this month. Instead I will be going out tonight to the theatre and enjoying every second of one or two G&Ts!!<br><br>I look like shit, haven't cried this much since I found out my Mum had cancer. I didn't expect it to hit this hard, but it's knocked me for 6.<br><br>Good luck to all those testing in the next week or so. Hope all you +ves are taking it easy and holding on to those sacs with all your might!<br><br>Lots of love<br>Luce<br>xxxx
