mid 30s thread 2 - lesley, notnow, bear, caip etc(95 Posts)
Don't know if you'll all find this or not but wanted to see how you're all doing
lesley how is counselling going?
notnow how was oz? Hope you had a fab time
bear what's the latest with you?
missbrightside if you're there, how are you doing?
I'm good, have got a scan on Thursday to make sure we have a heart beat. I've been feeling nauseous quite a lot which is grotty but a good sign!
Hope you're well. I realise your post was a little while ago but hoping you will see this (although I'm hoping it's not because you're still following the infertility boards).
Yes, I'm so very thankful to say my story does have a happy ending. After 3 years (and probably near enough 40 menstrual cycles of disappointment) I was lucky enough to conceive a little girl through our first Ivf attempt. She's now 8 months old and we still can't believe how lucky we are.
There were many times when we didn't think we would be so lucky especially when everyone around you seem to be getting pregnant. Coming out the other end I realised how bloody hard it was TTC. It could have very easily turned out differently though and not a day goes by when I don't look at my daughter and think that.
I really hope you've had some good news since your post or will very soon
Bear, sorry to hear you didn't have good news on your last post. Hope you've since had more positive news. Would love to hear from you.
Hi everybody! I'm new on any kind of forum and really hoping you ladies are still reading these threads so that I can contact you. More than a year has passed since the last comment and I was hoping that meant that everyone's fallen pregnant and no longer writes? I've been trying for exactly 2 years now with absolutely no support from anyone around me. I don't talk to my husband about it anymore. I don't really see the point. I end up reading these posts which always end abruptly. I never find out if there's a happy ending. Thanks! Xxxx
Congratulations on Baby Caip! Such lovely news xxx
Hi all, I'm ok- just ticking along. Had my first round of IVF with EC yesterday and there were no eggs. I'm a bit mystified as to what happened but we have a follow up appointment in a week and a half. The doctor who did the procedure also said he couldn't find the opening to my cervix so he's referring me to the main hospital again. I'm also confused by this as I've had many smears and examinations from consultants and no one has ever mentioned this before. It's quite gutting to have gone through all of that for nothing, but there's not much else to be done now except wait for the next appointment.
How is everyone else doing?
Congratulations Caip on the birth of your little boy! That's fantastic lovely news. Hope you're both doing well and adapting well to this new adventure.
Do you have a name for the little one?
Congratulations Caip! Sorry to hear that the birth was horrible but he sounds like a beauty. All that effort was worth it. Wonderful news. Xx
Had our gorgeous baby boy at 3am after a really horrible birth (lost a lot if blood) but he is worth.every second! Was 10 days late and 8lb8oz. He's bruised but beautiful
Ah no way! Hopefully it won't be much longer. And will be over nicely and quickly xxx
I'm good thanks, 17 weeks now. Going SO fast!
Bear any news with you?
Hello to anyone else looking in xx
Hi Fabi! Still waiting, am now 3 days overdue!
How are you doing?
Hey Caip, any news on Baby Caip yet?? Hope everything's going ok xxx
Due date's 2 weeks today! How are you feeling?
Just realised one of your other messages you had six weeks to go and that was three weeks ago!
Caip, how are you? Are you at D day yet? Keep us posted!! Xxx
Thanks Caip! Had 12 week scan yesterday and all going ok so far.
Good luck for your last few days in work and hope everything goes ok for d-day! Look forward to hearing what you have xxxx
Fabi, that's brilliant news! Massive congrats!
I've got 3 weeks left at work and we don't know what we're having, will you find out?
I think it's only natural to be terrified after ivf but sounds like you're being well monitored.
Take care if yourself
Wow Caip, that's amazing!!! Can't believe how quickly time is going for you! Do you know what you're having? How long until you finish work (if you haven't already)?
Hope everyone else is well and are having a good 2014 so far.
I am currently 10 weeks pregnant!!! Had first round of IVF over Christmas and egg collection at start of the year and by some fluke of nature, it worked! We had 13 eggs and only 2 fertilised but we've been really lucky that the one they put back has taken. Had scans at 6, 8 and 10 weeks and nervous as hell it's not going to continue but so far so good.
Hi everyone, any of you still around??
I've got 6 weeks to go til my due date - eek!
Hope you're all well and happy xx
Happy new year everyone and all the best for 2014! x
Happy New Year laydees. 2013 can do one - 2014 is going to be the year of good things for all of us. It shall be so.
Hi all, Hi Saznut- nice to meet you. Yep this definitely goes in waves on this thread as Notnow said.
No word from clinic yet for us. Ridiculously today was the first chance I had to ring and there was no answer. Going to try again tomorrow.
Good to hear you're doing well Caip- so exciting for you.
Glad you've got your house Notnow. Here's to new beginnings for you
Hi to everyone else!
feel a bit of a plonk this morn. Did a test when I know I have no symptoms at all and know af isn't due till Wednesday. Just thought it would be nice, but now I just feel a bit of a div. Think my new years treat will be a chat with the gp. wow I really know how to spoil myself.
Was really nice to hear fabi and caip on their journey. well done ladies. xxx
Sorry I have been away for a while. Hope you've all been ok.
Lesley sorry to hear still no joy from DH. But glad the weather is lovely and you'll have a warm Christmas
notnow good luck with the new house, although it is daunting, it will be great to have your own place and you can do whatever the hell you want when you want!!
Bear any news from the clinic yet?
Saznut welcome to the group! Although it sucks you find yourself here after TTC for two years. Have you had any tests yet? Don't be scared about the IVF process, it is a big step to take but anything is worth trying if it means a baby at the end of it. You're right in what you say about this thread helping people. Hopefully there's lots of lurkers out there who are benefiting from what we are writing. All lurkers are welcome to post! We need more people to share their experiences!
caip WOW 5 months already!! That's fantastic news! You planning to find out what you're having?
As for me, I am two weeks into treatment, down regging for last two weeks or so and still got another fortnight before starting stimming, egg collection first week of January (all being well). Trying not to get my hopes up of things working and just taking each day as it comes.
That's great to hear, Caip. You definitely deserve it.
I've just completed on the house but I'm not moving in for a couple of months - there's a lot of work to be done and I think I'm going to need a hard hat, a lot of nerve and every penny I've ever earned to pull it together. It smells disgusting at the moment: damp and also I think mice. I'm trying to channel my inner Sarah Beeney! Mum and dad have said I can stay on here until it's done so it takes the pressure off. I'll pop back every now and then to rant and update on progress.
Have a lovely Christmas everyone. X
Just thought I'd say hello to everyone
I'm pretty much 5 months now and luckily feeling fine. The closer I get the more real it becomes and the 20 week scan and now feeling movement have kind of made it feel like this might actually have a happy ending! I really appreciate how lucky I am too.
notnow - have you exchanged now? It's great that the next phase of your life is starting. Not what you had envisaged I know but a new adventure!
Lesley - how are you doing? Hope you're ok and get some answers soon so you can move forward.
bear - did you hear from the clinic? Fingers crossed for your treatment
fabi - how's your treatment going? Fingers crossed for you too
saznut - good to hear from a newbie but sorry you're here too!
Would love to hear how missbrightside is doing
its really nice to hear about miss brightsides success, the Old link I wad reading stopped so I didn't know. Sorry to hear you're news not now, what I can say is from reading the thread I know you have helped at least 20 people, and that's not including the lurkers, you are an inspiration and thank you because with out even realising it you have helped so much. Best of luck to the ivf ladies, that whole idea scares me sh*tless and until recently I've not even thought about it. I guess in the new year I will bring myself to get checked up. just dreading the outcome. Definitely an ostrich over here!lol.
