fingers crossed this is a speedy journey! we have already waited too long.
Yes, lots and lots of worry to the side. I'm still over the moon about it and feel so grateful

Yep, had my last stimulating injection today. Have my day 9 scan on Wednesday to see what size my follicles are and make sure there are only 1 or 2. Then they said I'll probably need 1 more scan at the end of the week before they give me a date and time of doing the trigger injection to trigger ovulation and then it's back to the clinic for the DIUI 36 hours later. So excited now. Just praying Wednesday's scan results are as good as they can be.

Great news about being transferred and fingers crossed it's an appointment filled with good news and quick turn-arounds.

Only just saw your post, clarks. I'm guessing all is still going well. Great stuff!

How is everybody else?

I have my first DIUI tomorrow. So excited!

DH and I had a little cry yesterday and a chat about it. I'm so excited at the very real prospect of getting pregnant now, but so sad, sad, sad that it's not my DH's swimmers. But we know this is the only way we'll experience pregnancy and we know that we'll love a child to bits regardless of whose genes it has.

That's so exciting Silverbell. Its all so bittersweet though isn't it. My husband and I have decided on the DS route now and we went for our implication councilling a couple of weeks ago, the whole thing made me and my husband feel sadder than before, how does that figure? We have our injection training next Friday and we've chosen our donor, so as soon as this cycle finishes we are all go.
I hope things went really really well, I'm thinking about you both x x

Yes, stardust, it's very bittersweet indeed. I'm glad you've both decided on the route for you. We actually found the implication counselling made us feel better about things and we found that we were more prepared and happy with our choice than we'd thought we were, which surprised us (and the counsellor!). I guess nothing is the same for any of us at the end of the day - we're all different individuals and couples and we all deal with things differently. Don't get me wrong though - it's a very sad time and bittersweet is exactly the right term to use. We've known about DH's KS since last August though, so we've had longer to come to terms with things and we were warned of a very low success rate for the biopsy he had in January, so we had also been prepared for the zero results for that too.

Good luck with your injection training next Friday. I hope your cycle is soon here and you can start getting excited about TTC again.

Things went very well yesterday and I have 45 million inside me! Praying that it brings a lovely BFP in a couple of weeks. It's all down to nature now.

Hey girls,

I'm so glad things are going well for yall. I know the bittersweet feeling it never really goes away. But I can also say when you pregnant and you both get wrapped up in the process, things change a bit. I almost forget at times I'm not carrying my hubbys dna because I know I am carrying his child. I think sometimes he even forgets. Although it might be a bit different for us cause we felt so close to loosing this lo. I pray you two get successful bfps soon! Update here is we jumped from 866 to 3644 on my hcg levels in a week. (Please don't judge) now I am truly struggling quitting smoking. I had almost quit in the beginning but when I felt like they were just expecting me to mc I basically relapsed. But I'm almost there. Just have to give up the 4 cigs a day I've been smoking. And we get our first ultrasound Tuesday. I'm so excited and scared at the same time.

Blimey, that's a massive jump in HCG levels. Excellent news!

I don't think you have any fear of being judged here

I'm glad to hear you're almost there with the quitting smoking. It's great you're trying your hardest and of course you'll know the benefits to your little one, which will certainly spur you on I imagine! Good luck for Tuesday and please let us know how you get on
