It's a bit hot outside here for sunbathing, esp if you've been told not to swim by a consultant... We are gearing up for summer here. Sorry ;)

maybe that is annoying you have to wait another cycle. At what point would the wedding be? Is there really no way... But either way it won't be long!

beedle no visitors till my parents mud May, when I'd be about 11 weeks I think. But they've known our issues just not when we planned to do ivf, so I think I'll tell family at 6/7 weeks if all goes well. Not sure.

Keep I told my mum at about 7 weeks, she knew we'd got a fertility clinic appt and was doing all sorts of research on PCOS! I took her the letter about my first scan, I asked for her opinion she read it cus she thought it was related to ttc then it took a few mins and she just broke down! She knew it was early days but I'd have needed her strength if anything went wrong!!

<takes cushion off Keeps chair in the grads thread> you will have to stop that sort of posting if you want your cushions when you move in with us wink

I think I was about 8 weeks when I told my mum and brother, my best friend knew just after the bfp (because of that stupid MN/FB stalker)

Boo I seem to remember your nerves too ;)

I just don't want her to worry through this bit too sparks (though I know she's worried now. Mums for you!). Maybe once we've seen a heartbeat. I agree, as I would tell them if sth went wrong too.

Boo I remember that dreadful stalker. Weirdo.

Night all x

Plus, my sister will go crazy with excitement.

JenFreggle Sat 23-Mar-13 20:24:27

That's amazing news Keep!

We've had no snow here, just rain. Today has been dry though so we've spent the day geocaching

Just marking place and still excited for Keep! I have to live vicariously thru you lot now.

Maybe, sorry you have to delay a cycle but I'm brooking no argument that you'll be diffed straight away.

So excited for all the other assisted brookers too. Love and brooking to you all x

Thanks gen and Jen. Will you be rejoining brookers, like musical? Though gen's a bit recent.

Right, I want a list on assisted brooking...
Solars, monitoring cycle next month
Beedle, ivf appointment v soon...
Sweetie, ET in April
Maybe, icsi the cycle after next
Geek, can't remember... But soon
Cupcakes, ivf in next few months, brooking for soon
Scarlett, iui coming up
Cartoon, taking a break

At least that's it in my head? Who did I forget?

keep I need a list of short explainations <thick emoticon> iui, icsi etc? although I have a feeling I may be finding out about some of these soon. actually I think I know the iui don't ihmm

keepitgoing Sun 24-Mar-13 11:31:18

keep's guide to assisted brooking conception:

Iui, squirt sperm up your chuff

Ivf, make lots of eggs if poss, fertilise in a dish, pop an embryo/s back

ET embryo transfer, ie when they put the embryo back. As sweeties using donor eggs she won't do the stimulation part if ivf.

Icsi, like ivf only they inject one sperm into the egg, rather than just swishing them around. Used if male factor issues.

I think it highly unlikely you will need any of these, face, as you get preg easily. They sometimes test the embryos for genetic abnormalities before putting them back, this is called pgd, but I think its unlikely you'll need that, sweetheart. That's normally if you're both a carrier or have a genetic disease.

thanks keep that should help me say the right things and brook properly. ill have to keep re-posting it so I can refer back.
in other news yesterdays pee stick decided I was still pregnant. not sure if it should be negative yet or not really.

Withalittlesparkle Sun 24-Mar-13 16:24:06

Face are you meant to be testing? You may be putting yourself under unnecessary stress

Face I had 3 erpcs and it usually took 6 wk or so to get a -ve, so don't worry. you'll be TTC again soon.

6 wks gen, really didn't think it could take so long. other times I've got my period exactly 4 wks later but I've got a feeling this will be longer.
no sparks but I do it to give me an idea of when my cycle will start up again. bit silly this time really as I'm not ttc right now so it doesn't matter.

I understand why you would want to know where you are in your cycle. Bear in mind it may take a bit longer this time as you were a bit further on. I found that anyway. Hope you're doing ok chuck x

keepitgoing Mon 25-Mar-13 03:47:17

You were much further along, face, and hcg would have been at least 20,000, so it's not surprising if it takes a while to go down. hcg geek alert

I po2s this morning. One was the stupid boots variety I used the other day. Positive, but not as strong as the control. Do not buy boots value. The other was a just-ou-of-date (sigh) one from uk. Positive right away. The second was in the interests of science...

No more now. Blood test on Friday anyway.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. X

Keep I did a couple of tests too one a day for about 2 weeks blush I liked seeing the line get darker grin

Morning Brookers

I hope everyone had a nice weekend. We had a bit of a rubbish one. Some very close friends of ours have lost their baby at 19 weeks. We are so sad for them. We ended up staying at home on Friday & going to the inlaws on Saturday as we went to see our friends instead. I'm so upset for them, this is their second loss (the other was at around 7 weeks). Life seems so very cruel sometimes.

Keep I hope you and DH had a lovely weekend. I'm still so excited for you smile

Oh by the way I will be doing ICSI not IVF

Maybe I'm gutted that you'll have to wait a cycle. Is it because your DBro is getting married abroad? Is it in Italy?

Cartoon hope you are doing ok.

Geek you are putting in some very long hours at work! I hope the end is in sight. How is dink boss doing?!

NoCupcakesOrCocktails Mon 25-Mar-13 09:50:39

Oops pressed send to soon

Sweetie hope you are having a fab holiday

Solars when are you joining DH?

I'm so jealous, I really really want to go on holiday. Hopefully when we have more of an idea when ICSI will be happening we can plan something.

keepitgoing Mon 25-Mar-13 10:42:13

Oh cup how awful for them. sad

JenFreggle Mon 25-Mar-13 11:40:46

Right, you lot. Somebody is hiding AF when she is supposed to be here with me. I'm on cd34 now and am getting fed up of wondering when she is going to turn up. Own up, who has her cos it is my turn?

Cup that's so sad. How are they doing? Yes, it's cos my bro is getting married in Italy. And the risk is I'd me needing collection an transfer when we are away. We are gutted. Just feels like nothing is going our way

Keep I love an experiment. We need a constant update on sensible pee sticks for when we need them. When is your scan?

keepitgoing Mon 25-Mar-13 11:50:45

jen....... Care to join my science experiments?...

maybe I just had to change it, now Saturday morning. It's a bugger about the cycle, but you wouldn't want the extra stress of timing on top of everything else. So when will cd1 of The Cycle be, roughly?

In my experience - go with internet cheapies, then with something more expensive believable after that. I think they're the most sensitive. But I ran out of them, so have never seen how long it takes to get a strong line.

JenFreggle Mon 25-Mar-13 12:17:27

I may have a couple of pee sticks left over from DD but have no plans for using them.

Maybe how lovely that you get a nice trip to Italy for your DB's wedding just before you become pregnant and will therefore be unable to travel so easily. A Feb baby rather than a Jan one hopefully I counted right then gives you that little bit longer after the Christmas rush to get ready for all those sleepless nights, explosive nappies etc smile

Jen you make me grin

You are right. Plus I believe it means prosecco and Campari!

Keep ill he starting on CD21 as I'm in long protocol, so will start jabbing when in in Italy! So end of may. I think that gives me a march baby? Not sure though. If someone would likt to figure that out for me.....
