@veeboo all the best for this month! I'm on day 18 and according to my app this is my most fertile day but I don't believe it lol! Managed to dtd every other day since day 8 and will continue all this week so hopefully we'll have covered all bases 🙏🏻
We've booked a little hol for a few weeks time so got something nice to look forward to 😊 x

veeboo Sun 19-May-19 12:12:55

Well done @squirrelnutkins1 sounds like you've done all you can. Glad you've booked in things to look forward to. We go on holiday in July but that feels too far away!

@veeboo I’m feeling ok had a good sleep but my mood is pretty grim think af should be here soon! That’s ok next Friday I have a scan to check the buserelin I am taking has shut down my ovaries (like a temporary menopause) if they have them I can start taking progynova which is the HRT so is oestrogen I then will have another scan 7/8 days after that and if all is well I can start taking the progestogen pessaries 5 days before transfer all the while I will still be injecting with the buserelin so about another 3weeks before transfer!

Good look for your fertile window fingers crossed for you!

@squirrelbutkins sounds like you’ve had a productive month fingers crossed for you too

Hi everyone, hope you're all having a good weekend.

The escape room was really good fun, we made it out smile wish it was a bit longer with more tasks to do. It was a really good distraction too. We went for a couple of drinks after too, was nice just to do normal stuff. We haven't told the friends we went with about the miscarriage so there was no pressure too.

@squirrelnutkins1 well done for dtd every other day and beyond smile keeping my fingers crossed for you 🤞 we definitely flagged towards the end. Hoping we're in with a shot. Af due sometime next weekend. Kind of resigned to it arriving.

@veeboo happy fertile week smile

@FinallytakingtheplungewithIVF how do you remember everything? I'm panicking that I'm going to miss appointments. Sorry to hear you're having some rough symptoms.

@2fingers22018 I think if I was with my niece and nephew that type of place would be OK. Really struggling with other people's children at the moment, awful as that sounds sad

FinallytakingtheplungewithIVF Sun 19-May-19 19:33:32

@venusstarr glad you enjoyed the escape room I keep meaning to sort another one out! Glad you had a nice time out with no pressure must of been nice x

I think I’m a bit ocd when it comes to the treatment plan I like to know what I’m doing when so I can focus on getting to the next stage rather then looking to far m! Also they do give you your plan so that you know when your doing what and how much to do so you should t need to worry about that! Appointments well haven’t got to many to remember this time just two scans hopefully! Thank you I had a great sleep last night though so maybe it was just a one off!

squirrelnutkins1 Sun 19-May-19 22:42:57

I know what you mean, it does get a bit tiring (and boring) tbh! Positive thoughts to you xxx @VenusStarr

I don't know why I've just done it but just been sat on MN for like an hour looking at loads of 'line eyes' threads. Why!?! No idea why I'm torturing myself!? Crazy behaviour 🙈

veeboo Mon 20-May-19 10:54:53

Oh @squirrelnutkins1 I've been known to lurk on the pregnancy boards daydreaming...totally normal I think but probably not very healthy or productive!

squirrelnutkins1 Mon 20-May-19 11:12:04

@veeboo glad it's not just me blush you're right, totally unhealthy!

How is everyone today? Everyone have a good weekend? We stuffed ourselves silly when we went out 🐷 back on slimming world today lol! No baby questions so that's good!

veeboo Mon 20-May-19 11:52:10

That's good @squirrelnutkins1. I have a hen do coming up on 31st with school friends I dont see regularly. I am dreading the 'are you trying' questions. I'm tempted to just lie and say no!

Mrsmch123 Mon 20-May-19 13:01:59

Hi everyone, tried to phone for husbands sperm results but they refused to give them out over the phone and won't print it either for us to collect!said we have to wait until July when we have our clinic appointment!!

squirrelnutkins1 Mon 20-May-19 13:46:51

@Mrsmch123 has OH tried ringing for the result? It's probably for confidentiality reasons they won't give them to you. I couldn't get my OHs results they had to speak to him directly.

Mrsmch123 Mon 20-May-19 14:05:17

The receptionist said it's by consultation only but will get him to give them a ring and see if they tell him🤦🏻‍♀️It's so frustrating!x

Kelly199 Mon 20-May-19 17:00:45

@VenusStarr hope your appts will come around quickly for you so you can move forward and hope the counselling will help you too.
I'm CD20 today, 8dpo. What cd are you now?
I'm feeling quite crap lately. Just feeling really negative about everything (I know I shouldn't and there's others in worse situations!!) I'm just feeling deflated with everything and just got in my head that clomid isn't going to work. Should be thankful I have options!!
Lol at the wacky warehouse.
How are you anyway? Hope you're doing ok.
Glad you enjoyed the escape room. I've always been in two minds whether to do them or not lol. Should try one, but think I'd panic too much pop (even though I know I'd be let out either way lol). xx

@FinallytakingtheplungewithIVF glad infections are going ok. Has your af arrived yet?
Hope you enjoyed horse riding with your dd xx

@CloudSway I'm also so glad you made this thread!! Hope you'll have a nice hol!! Something exciting to look forward to Xx

@GreyC Sorry af giving you bad headaches!! Hope you're ok now xx

@squirrelnutkins1 Wish you the best of luck for this month!! Hope your hol will be here before you know it so you can have something to enjoy.
I know what you mean with the 'line eyes' threads. I do it too. Why? I don't know either!! 🙈 xx

@Mrsmch123 That's terrible!! Sorry they were like that! It's so different everywhere. Some don't seem fair at all! Yes, worth a try with your oh giving them a call. Hope they will give them to him xx

@2fingers22018 how are you? xx

Kelly199 Mon 20-May-19 17:01:06

Hope everyone else is ok too. Sorry if I've missed anyone! Xx

FinallytakingtheplungewithIVF Mon 20-May-19 17:47:25

@squirrelnutkins your not on your own I do it sometimes too!!

@kelly199 sorry your feeling negative it is hard work trying to be positive all the time. Hugs to you xx no af hasn’t arrived yet have just emailed the clinic to find out if it should be on time or not as I have my scan on friday and as much as I’m sure they’ve seen it all before I’m going to be mortified if it’s cd1 or 2!! Yes we had a really lovely time thankyou!

Hope everyone else is ok xx

2fingers22018 Mon 20-May-19 17:55:37

@Kelly199 hi u should give the escape rooms ago its such a laugh..sorry your feelin down we re always here if you need a rant god knows i do enough ranting for everyone lol we re only human bound to have gd days and bad days x

Kelly199 Mon 20-May-19 18:14:14

@2fingers22018 @FinallytakingtheplungewithIVF thanks ladies! I'm glad to have this thread to come and speak my mind!
@FinallytakingtheplungewithIVF yeah, they prob used to it. I'd be the one to ring and check though too, so don't worry! Xx

@2fingers22018 I will give it a go!! I know, thank you. Nice to have you all XX

2fingers22018 Mon 20-May-19 18:36:00

@Kelly199 i think deep down i was gettin my hopes up that my hycosy would be the answer its hard not to pin your hopes onto the clomid but the gd news is your not out yet x

veeboo Mon 20-May-19 18:36:05

@finallytakingtheplungewithivf if it helps I had an internal ultrasound when I was on. They didn't bat an eye.
@kelly199 I'm sorry you're feeling down. Being in the tww is the most frustrating time. You don't know the clomid hasn't worked until it hasn't. You've got a few more goes. As hard as it is try and not worry about the next bit until you get there. Have you got any nice plans for the weekend?

Kelly199 Mon 20-May-19 18:54:33

@2fingers22018 hard isn't it? I thought the same. Given that I'd had a recent hycosy and on the clomid and everything seems to be working. I know they're not magic pills, but I still felt positive. I know it's only cycle 2 on the clomid, but no symptoms so not very hopeful for this month. I know some people say it's possible to have no symptoms, but then see loads of others have symptoms and bfp by now! Think I'm just having one of those days lol xx

@veeboo thank you. I know, I do still have 4 more months of clomid so hopefully one will be successful (if not this month!!).
Nothing planned for wknd. Have had today and tomorrow off work though, so that's nice.
How are you? Xx

squirrelnutkins1 Mon 20-May-19 19:08:07

@Kelly199 big hugs to you xxx I wish I could wave a magic wand and give us all what we want xxx

2fingers22018 Mon 20-May-19 19:16:58

@Kelly199 its soo hard to stay upbeat all the time ive gave up on that i just let myself feel what im feeling and try to think tomorrows a fresh day @squirrelnutkins1 i know me too ❤if we knew itd happen in so many yrs it wouldnt be soo hard its the not knowing that drives me insane x

2fingers22018 Mon 20-May-19 19:18:41

Im foning the hospital 2morro to see where i am on the waiting list fx its gd news i really need something to keep me going here wish me luck ladies💗

squirrelnutkins1 Mon 20-May-19 19:26:13

@2fingers22018 that's it down to a tee, the not knowing is terrible. Then your mind goes all over the place and I'm thinking I got to be pregnant for a couple of weeks, is that my turn done now? Urgh it awful. Totally agree that you need to let yourself feel what you need to.
Ooh exciting, let us know how you go! Xx

veeboo Mon 20-May-19 19:35:29

That's good advice @2fingers22018.

I'm cd15 now. 2nd day of flashy smiley on clearblue opk. We dtd Saturday and then used the home insemination kit Sunday. Going to break today and then try again for next few days in a row. I think Ovulation will probably be weds. We're going to see a comedy show weds eve and its DP's birthday on the weekend so we've got a nice meal planned.
