@viletta good luck smile I too have heard good things about the Czech clinic.

Viletta Tue 21-Aug-18 11:28:39

@tikha @cannonball8726 thank you for support! It does mean a lot! Yes, we were thinking of going to Czech I’ve been reading threads with lots of praising for foreign clinics.. might be a good option for us indeed!

tikha Tue 21-Aug-18 00:45:13

@viletta sounds like your DH is depressed as well sad really tough. Big hugs.

cannonball8726 Mon 20-Aug-18 20:31:17

Oh @viletta. That sounds awful. I'm sorry it's so shit. You're both going through a really hard time. The expense of treatment doesn't help sad have you thought of going abroad?


Viletta Mon 20-Aug-18 18:37:45

He also says if I want children I should find someone else. I think feels like he failed me.. but he won’t do anything to help the situation.

Viletta Mon 20-Aug-18 18:36:09

Definitely no from him about donor sperm.. feels like he gave up and considering not having children at all. I know it’s hard for him too.. sorry for being a bit depressed, going through some down time

tikha Mon 20-Aug-18 11:44:42

@Viletta sorry to hear that. Is your DH happy to consider donor sperm? It super challenging financially really.. sad

Viletta Sun 19-Aug-18 21:26:37

Not sure.. we don’t have the money and are in debts.. DH thinks it’s all not worth the hassle .. he thinks his poor sperm will not produce an embryo and doesn’t believe anything will help it.. fatalistic..

@tikha- came on to see how you are doing and found your amazing news! Congrats!!!!! Like you say each stage feels like such a lottery but you might as well enjoy each positive otherwise it will just grind you down. xx

@viletta and @HJ82- hope all going well your side, any thoughts on when you might cycle again? X

Just to say I got a BFP at my beta. Decided to wait till the test. Really feel numb at the moment especially with the multiple failures in the background.. So will wait and see.. Its such a lottery even going forward.

@HJ82 i totally get being far away from home.. I don't really know that many people where I am currently as I have been sent overseas for work. So its nice to be able to speak with people online. Good luck with the next cycle of IVF. It really only takes one. We were only left with that one embie from one egg...

HJ82 Tue 14-Aug-18 09:43:50

@Viletta it was weird, the easiest AF I've had in 3 years. Like my endo scars decided not to flare at all. Which was good! @cannonball8726 I'm ok. Through this whole process you asses your life that's for sure. Ivf takes a good 4 months of natural trying time which is unsettling but we have another round available to us so I'd be mad not to take it. All my family are 13000 miles away and living here has prob made me a bit of an emotional train wreck here and there. It's quite stressful and challenging. Can't be helping my chances. There is nothing really wrong with us fertility wise, we are just unlucky. I think my eggs might be a bit dodgy though. I guess each month that good egg has just failed to come through.

Viletta Tue 14-Aug-18 00:28:39

@HJ82 so sorry for your bfn. mine was very painful, as I was being stabbed. Very heavy, very red but just for 2-3 days, then brown for another 5 and very light. I’ve heard second af after failed cycle can be painful as well. I’m expecting it any day now and again this sharp pain.. also after all the treatment and stress af seems to be irregular. Hope you are not too down, they say failed cycle teaches what to change next time for better result

cannonball8726 Mon 13-Aug-18 10:46:52

Hey @tikha I'm not sure. @tigerlily99 did a FET though x

tikha Mon 13-Aug-18 10:22:15

Question.. when do people test for an FET. My clinic is doing a beta 11 days after... They gave me pregnyl 5000 units on day 1 of transfer so not sure how long that will take to go out of the system and if that will give a false positive. I haven't really tested yet because of the pregnyl.

cannonball8726 Sun 12-Aug-18 17:45:02

Thanks so much @HJ82. I hope you're doing okay. Have you and your partner thought about whether you'll cycle again?

HJ82 Sat 11-Aug-18 15:50:11

@cannonball8726 only during first day a few hrs. Before any flow really. I expected a lot as well as heavy flow with all the drugs making my lining thick. It was normal btw not too thick. Around 9-10mm I'm not surprised by anything my body does now 😂 I was that person who had perfect painless periods until I decided to try for a baby. The universe is doing everything it can to prevent this it seems. Hope you're feeling ok!! Thinking of you all and your scans coming up. Hope everything goes perfectly for you xx

cannonball8726 Sat 11-Aug-18 15:08:38

That is odd. Do you have any cramps?

HJ82 Sat 11-Aug-18 15:00:17

@cannonball8726 it's already been. Very strange. Light a few clots and mainly brown tbh. Not normal at all. But also not as heavy as my usual and only pains for a few hrs. Unless it's coming back then that was it.

cannonball8726 Sat 11-Aug-18 14:54:59

Any sign, @HJ82? How are you doing?

cannonball8726 Fri 10-Aug-18 13:04:07

My clinic said to expect a period within around 7 days after OTD - so it will most likely show its face within the next few days sad I hope it's not too awful. Dark chocolate and hot water bottle for the win xxx

HJ82 Fri 10-Aug-18 12:26:59

I'm wondering whether it's blocked up there. Haha. Can that even happen? If noting comes today I think I'll see dr

HJ82 Fri 10-Aug-18 12:25:29

I was just expecting a mega period. My friend who just froze her eggs said after that her AF was horrendous. I expected mine to be worse than that and I've been growing my lining etc

HJ82 Fri 10-Aug-18 12:23:33

@cannonball8726 yesterday. Nothing today. Zilch.
