My hubby and I are just starting our 3rd ivf cycle (1st 2 failed) and our first cycle of short protocol. Anyone else going through the same thing? Thought I would share my symptoms / stories so far.
Currently on day 7 and off for my first scan tomorrow to see if it is working - will update as I go ;)

Hi Scoops I was just having a browse of other people's stories and came across this thread - massive congratulations to you,I'm so happy you're finally (almost) there!! Hopefully I can be posting the same in the not too distant future smile xx

Not sure if anyone is reading this thread anymore but wanted to share my good news - after 3 failed ivf rounds and being told by my doctor that it was impossible for us to concieve naturally I have just found out I am 4 weeks pregnant - early days but first time I have ever managed to get to 4 weeks with strong lines on the tests - if we can manage it anyone can!!

Raspberry - feel your pain xxx just take your time and reflect and then decide what to do next I am sure it will all work out - in the meantime enjoy your 'practice' with the puppy - they definitely test you in the first few months xx
Knackered- thnks had some time to reflect with our woof and I'll take a deep breath and try again after a long break x

Scoops and Raspberry, I am so very sorry to read your awful news. I have no words to say. It 's crushing when it fails and nothing can make it better. hmm

We have a chocolate labrador. He was such good company throughout our journey to both me and DH.

I am only 30 although will be 31 in December. We haven't booked our consultation appt yet to review everything, just can't face it right now, I feel so utterly horrible.
I'm so glad we are getting puppy. He will definitely be a distraction!

Scoops76 Tue 01-Oct-13 21:13:35

Oh raspberry fab news on dog - we got a choc lab puppy after our first round who is my sanity ;) spoke to my clinic today as we ave no Nhs rounds left. They recommended to see the consultant and see if the Nhs will pay for genetic testing and/ or immunity testing - not sure how old you are but if you are over 35 they might do this for you as well - worth a check xx

Oh scoops I'm so sorry sad tis shit isn't it. One week on today for me, have had a little cry and what not. Aliviated misery slightly on the weekend by putting a deposit down on a gorgeous chocolate cocker spaniel pup smile we can't face thinking about IVF again for a good while so will have out follow up appointment in November then leave it til next summer before we think about it again

Stillhopingstillhere the actual process isn't too bad - I think we all want it do bad we just get on with it - the wait once they put them back is the worst bit - good luck x

Scoops76 Fri 27-Sep-13 22:06:28

All over for me too full bleed while on hols. Not sure what we do now although have been researching immune problems as might be the issue for us ;( big hugs raspberry just remember you have some frostiness so all is not lost xxx

Scoops76 Fri 27-Sep-13 22:04:45

Raspberry so sorry didn't work x had everything crossed for you how are you doing? Xx

RaspberrySnowCone Tue 24-Sep-13 13:33:04

Hey scoops, how you getting on? Game over for me, I've started my period and lots of cramping/upset tummy. Completely devastated xx

I'm hoping for good news for you too.

I'm due to start my first cycle of short protocol Ivf next month and I'm really scared. Was it bad physically? My dh is gong to be away when I start the treatment - I will be on my own for the first week. It's not likely to make me really ill apparently, but I'd still feel better hearing it from people who have been through it themselves.

Thinking of you xx

Hello sorry for delay in replying. I was due to test on a Saturday and tested the Monday before.

With my first successful cycle I waited until the day I was supposed to and had the faintest line.

Also even though my third cycle resulting in the twins I didn't get a strong line on the day I was supposed to test.

It's so hard.

I'm thinking of you x

KnackeredCow Sun 22-Sep-13 07:23:31

It is still early to test so still got my FX for you, Scoops. Enjoy your holiday!

RaspberrySnowCone Sun 22-Sep-13 06:04:59

I think it's to early to test, give it until next weekend at least but the spotting hasnt increased which is a good sign I expect.

I'm doing ok, bit of an emotional wreck but surviving it!

Scoops76 Sun 22-Sep-13 01:23:59

Ok ta - tiny bit of spotting this morning but not much did poas but still neg so still not hopefully but you never know! Off on hols for a week tomorrow so looking forward to chilling out in some sunshine. How are you doing raspberry? Good I hope have everything crossed for ou xxx

RaspberrySnowCone Sat 21-Sep-13 15:58:35

How are you getting on today scoops?

Scoops76 Fri 20-Sep-13 20:15:02

Thanks ;) not due to test until 1st oct!! Has stopped trying not to hope too much that it is implantation bleeding as thought that before so even more devastating when full bleed started ;(
Raspberry hope you are doing ok x

RaspberrySnowCone Fri 20-Sep-13 18:26:17

Scoops everything crossed for it to be implantation bleeding. Hang in there xx

KnackeredCow Fri 20-Sep-13 15:20:12

Try not to worry Scoops. Although I got a TWP at 4dp5dt (BFP 6dp5dt), I had quite a heavy bleed days 7, 8 and 9 past 5dt. They think it was either residual blood from the traumatic EC or implantation bleeding. FX it's the same for you and those blastos are sticky. Good luck!
When are you due to test / planning to test?

Scoops76 Fri 20-Sep-13 06:47:37

Well not good news this morning - had some spotting so might all be over for me ;( both of my previous rounds I had a bleed after 10/11 days with three day transfer and am 6dpt on 5dt so looks like same again ;( holding out a tiny bit of hope that it is just implantation bleeding xxx

Scoops76 Thu 19-Sep-13 21:29:34

Knackercow - thank you sooo much really helps having someone who has been through this and come out the other side with a littlun ;) so hard not to obsess!

KnackeredCow Wed 18-Sep-13 22:06:41

Scoops and Raspberry - I had no symptoms at the stage you 're both at now. Please don't worry. My first noticeable symptom kicked in at 5 weeks and 2 days. I was on annual leave and fell asleep and missed Murray getting through his Wimbledon semi-final in 2012. And then the tiredness was bone-crushing for the next 13 weeks! I can't describe anything like it. But you've both got that to look forward to grin. Oh, and no morning sickness until 6 to 7 weeks. And then it lasted until 20! But it was definitely worth it. So, please don't focus on lack of symptoms. It means nothing.

Scoops76 Wed 18-Sep-13 21:35:08

Wow! Thanks goandplay so good to hear the positive stories - if you don't mind me asking at what point did you eat your positive?
