ZNation was not bad actually, not sure if you watch Walking Dead but it isn't as gruesome as that or as heavy. We also watch Extant and The Strain which aren't to bad. We started watching the 100 but I find that a bit boring and more aimed to a younger crowd. Ha can you tell we watch TV during the week?
Wow BF you were weened early but you did fine, so the placenta must be functioning ok by then
Lorna, cramps are great!!!!! Fx'd they are snuggling in and getting comfy
I liked znation despite brad Pitt, liked extant & the strain, have you seen Survivers? The Walking Dead was hard to get into because of the graphic nature of it but now we're hooked
Doll house was interesting, House of Cards( that one) , Earth, Damages (Glen Close rocks!), Revenge, Breaking Bad, Mad Men, Call the Midwife, and we're currently watching the Scottish based series Outlander on TV. Halloween is coming and The American Horror Story is one of my favourite scary-scary programs, turn you white in fear!!! Netflix has sooo much good stuff and no commercials! We route our computer through a USA server so that we get more content (unblock us.com), Canadians get less than 1/4 of the content available to Americans
Apparently right now netflix is in a huge battle with our TV & Radio regulator (CRTC). They're refusing to acknowledge that the CRTC is a body that should regulate internet content. Once it's found (in court) that the CRTC has the right to regulate internet content it'll set an international precedent allowing taxation to happen of YouTube, netflix and any other service. So other regulators will hop on board with their claims and there you have it, the end of affordable internet content. I'm glad Netflix is challenging the CRTC, they'd have to bump their fees to $150 like TV as opposed to $8/mnth. Families have cancelled TV because it's just outrageous fees (and boring due to the heavy sensorship).
I digress, how's everyone today? You able to avoid ms Jooba & Crystal? Lorna, finding something to pass the time? Just wanted to thank you for creating this thread!
Sienna & Minno where are you guys going next? I thought Sienna was going to Serum? Any closer to getting details sorted?
Hi ladies, lovely to see you all here!
Lorna, thanks for starting this thread. My story is pretty much in my signature, one of the only things I've ever been sure about in my life is the need to have children. Various things prevented that through my thirties and it was hard to watch as one after the other my friends had babies. We finally started trying when I was 40, basic fertility tests at my GP showed all was well with me but it simply didn't happen. We sought help at a fertility clinic after a year or so and by the time they'd done all the tests etc I was approaching 42. However AMH was good and we had 3 back to back cycles of IUI, with no luck. We then moved onto ICSI and my first cycle I had 4 eggs all fertilised, 2 decent quality put back but still no joy. We decided to try another cycle a few months later and this time my response to stims was not great and they felt I could do better so converted to IUI, again no joy. I then tried DHEA for 3 months before one final attempt. Again 4 eggs collected and fertilised and three out back, sadly know happy ending. When I had my AMH retested it was very low (1.9) and my FE said I had less than 5% success rate of success and would be better with DE. So we went in the egg sharing list and edited much longer than wed been told, eventually found what looked like a perfect match for donor and after we'd agreed everything she decided to wait 6 months, so more waiting for us. Eventually we had our first DE cycle a month or so ago and had 2 good quality embryos out back. When I tested negative I was devistated, I somehow thought this would be it and my partner and I had agreed this would be our last shot. My follow up appointment with my FE has recommended testing for NKC and thrombotic tests, so I'm having them done next week. However I don't intend to cycle again with this clinic. The nurses are great but they're stressed and overworked, the dr is ill informed often getting facts about me wrong and is defensive and cold when I ask questions. It really feels like it's all about the money for them (which I guess it is). Anyway, I've managed to persuade DH to try one more time in Czech Rrpublic at Retrofit (they got crystal pregnant!). So I get the test results then feed all the info to them and fingers crossed we go in Jan/feb. We're running out of cash and even the tests are cú1000. So here I am again waiting and hoping. I know deep down that this has to be it, if it doesn't work I have to find a way of moving forward and perhaps think of adoption. But I'll deal with that next year.
Wow that's been a long selfish post, sorry!!
Lorna, fingers crossed for you!
Sienna, I'm UK and got my meds from healthcare at home via the clinic, I also got some from the pharmacy at Asda!!
SciFi is not my bag, so I haven't a clue what your on about with those TV programmes!!
