We've run out of room on Karbea's Jan IVF thread and it is too much fun to stop! We're all getting into comfy clothes and enjoying the side effects and surprises (and occasionally some hand holding).

<<waves>> lost you all for a while.

Had ET last Weds...DS managed to be diagnosed with chickenpox the day before hmm. I have felt fluey since so convinced I have scuppered everything.

When can I feasibly test stupidly early? It was a 5 day blast. OTD Friday...I think. My clinic were wonderfully vague "Oh 14 days" "But it is a 5 day blast" "Ok then, 10 days" "9?" "Yeah OK"...feel I may have talked them in to that grin

Any way, my lining wasn't fab (6.5mm) but my little brrr baby (chose just to defrost 1) was a star. Defrosted 90-100% intact and had started to divide away again.

Been lugging DS around and general unable to relax like last time so worried I may have not given it it's best chance.

Bit glass half empty.

norf it was at 9dpEC my symptoms disappeared. I went to bed feeling wildly hormonal (and horny as hell blush) and woke up the next morning just feeling blank.

valium I'll have everything crossed for you.

vallinnapod Sun 24-Feb-13 21:08:15

PMSL Euro not sure if that was meant for me, and if it was, if it was an autocorrect but valium is highly apt winkgrin

Northey Sun 24-Feb-13 21:17:10

Yeah, it was yesterday that I started feeling blank too, euro, which was 9dpec for me as well.

Vallina, nice to see you back again. I had ET the day before you, and am meant to test on Saturday!

Northey Sun 24-Feb-13 21:18:16

Ooh, val, do you mind me asking what grade your frosted were before freezing and after defrosting?

Sharonbenn Sun 24-Feb-13 21:43:48

Vanilla sorry you are feeling pants but yay for your little embie coming up trumps. A hardy little fellow. hopefully a good sign.

Good luck for your scan Choco fingers crossed for you.

Hope you got home ok Honty.

I'm done in and getting an early night. I'm conserving energy for the task ahead.

Night everyone.


EuroShaggleton Sun 24-Feb-13 21:59:45

Heh val yes, that was an amusing autocorrect! 'll stick to val from now on. grin

honty sorry to read about your car stress.

Hi all

Just been out for a lovely bit of scran with Mr Noks. The red wine monster came to visit again. Bad BAD Noks.

Thanks, euro . Am feeling much better today but after reading your tales of down regging hell, I am really in awe of you and Scarlett and everyone else. I am not the sort of person to say that lightly but I so am. X

Choco - I seem to remember for some strange reason you are down in Dorchester ? My wonderful Grandad was born there and I used to go as a child. Happy memories. Xx

Good luck for all tomorrow's testing, injecting, sniffing and random journeys on the IVF bus.

Noks x

But to answer your question, no, not feeling low particularly, bit grumpy maybe the last couple of days. Low level queasiness, but nothing unmanageable. Sore lower back. Sore boobs. That's it.

I haven't had to change in to larger trousers yet, but I did go shopping on Saturday and it was very frustrating, I have this massive gut hanging out of everything. I lost weight, somehow (nerves probably), but for the love of god I don't know where it came off. My belly is only getting larger, ditto boobs. I have been having a few days where I am ravenous and just eat, but nothing too indulgent. I am going to lay off the chocolate and biscuits though, this is getting ridiculous.

Three more sleeps till scan.

fairypangolin Mon 25-Feb-13 10:34:24

dildals I am absolutely terrified.

Dildals Mon 25-Feb-13 11:18:24

fairy I know, it's almost easier to remain 'not knowing', but you know that signs are looking good!

vallinnapod Mon 25-Feb-13 11:37:30

No idea Northey sorry!

Dildals Mon 25-Feb-13 14:32:49

I can't concentrate at work ... fairy how did the scan go?!

delilahbelle Mon 25-Feb-13 15:12:11

I'm in hospital. Was pregnant, no longer after a rupture and fairly serious bleed and emergency surgery. In the gynae ward to recover for the next few days.

EuroShaggleton Mon 25-Feb-13 15:36:12

Oh delilah. I'm so, so sorry to hear that.

fairypangolin Mon 25-Feb-13 15:38:12

delilah I'm so so sorry, was it a placental rupture? God how awful. Hope they are taking good care of you.

I feel a bit awkward announcing this just after del's sad news but I've just seen one little perfect creature on the scan and its heart thumping away. Just one thank god! So relieved. Now only another 5 weeks until can truly relax... DH and I have celebrated with a very wicked trip through the McDonalds drive in since DS is in school and won't be corrupted.

Sharonbenn Mon 25-Feb-13 15:39:50

Oh my goodness Delilah what a roller coaster. I'm so so sorry. That is terrible news. I dont know what to say. How are you? Sx

Dildals Mon 25-Feb-13 15:41:11

Jezus delilah that's horrible! I have goose bumps. I am so sorry. What happened? Did you start bleeding at work or were you at home? Did you call the ambulance or did you manage to make it in yourself? Does this now mean that you won't be able to get pregnant again?
I have no magic words of advice to offer, take advantage of the painkillers and take each day as it comes. It will get better eventually, it always does. xxx

Sharonbenn Mon 25-Feb-13 15:41:20

Lovely news Fairy. Congratulations x

Dildals Mon 25-Feb-13 15:51:14

fairy Congratulations! I KNEW it was going to be good news for you! Risks of things going wrong dramatically decrease if there's a heartbeat though, so that's good news!

chocoloco1 Mon 25-Feb-13 16:31:17

delilah hugs, so sorry to hear your awful news x x

highlove Mon 25-Feb-13 17:34:19

Oh Delilah I'm so very sorry. I hope for now you are recovering ok physically. After all you've been through, this is just so very unfair.

vallinnapod Mon 25-Feb-13 18:02:32

The highs and lows of this board sad

Delilah how sad and scary - wishing you a speedy recovery.

Fairy {hugs} that is really lovely news smile

EuroShaggleton Mon 25-Feb-13 18:09:15

So many highs and lows on this thread.

Delilah I am thinking of you.

fairy I'm so pleased that the scan was great.

fairypangolin Mon 25-Feb-13 18:30:28

Thank you all. I was so nervous during the scan my legs were trembling too much and the nurse had to stop until I found a new position.

It's all so down to luck isn't it? Life is so precarious.
