Amazing news tryandwish I'm so excited for you!! It will be 4weeks for me on Tuesday 22nd now I'm finding the waiting hard!! Even more so now coz I thought when you get the call it would be all go from then but to have to wait again but I know it's worth the wait and the recipients wait must be so much harder!! My husband dropped forms in the clinic 2weeks ago and it was only the carrier part we were waiting on so fingers crossed it won't be much longer!! I just want to have more of an idea of dates I suppose coz I really want to book a little holiday for just after whenever the TWW will be to either celebrate or take my mind off disappointment! Either way a few days away would be nice after this emotional roller coaster!! Keep us updated!!

Hi g3mz,
Checked the post box this morning and got so excited! Peered into the envelope and it was 6 weeks supply of microgynon contraceptive pill. There was a note saying to start taking it on my next cycle day 2. The excitement faded as I'm now cycle day 8!! means 3 weeks waiting again before I can start and then got to take it for at least 2 weeks and seems maybe up to 6 weeks like you say it will be worth all the waiting but its hard.

A few days away sounds absolutely amazing! Thing of dreams for me though as we have 3 dogs, 7 cats, 6 chickens (soon to be more), 9 ferrets and 3 goats are coming in a few weeks. Hard to get away with all the mouths to be fed every day. But we do live in a really quiet village on a small holding with a river between us and the nearest neighbour so we don't feel the need for time away very often.

Sure you don't need it but good luck for 22nd and hope you get your contraceptive pill with better timing than I did!

Hi girls

I hope you don't mind me posting. We will be looking at egg sharing towards the end of this year/beginning of next if our NHS cycle is unsuccessful this time. I was wondering if I can ask how much it is costing you? Especially the lady in Manchester. If you do not wish to share this I totally understand also can I ask if they charge extra if you need ICSI? Thank you so much girls x

Good luck to you all

Hi Tinks85,

I'm in west Wales (using a clinic in Swansea) and I have had to pay 325 consultation fee, 90 for AMH bloods (had mine done twice!), and I still have 75 to pay for the HFEA license and 750 for the ICSI (which is normally 950 but they knock 250 off for egg sharers.) Hope this helps and good luck for your NHS cycle.

g3mz - Have you heard about your results? Did you have to phone on 22nd or did you have an appointment to go see them? Have you had your microgynon through yet?

Weird that they write, I have never asked my clinic I presumed they phoned! When Im at the clinic I alway look around to see if there is anyone that looks like me!-even though they are unlikely to come on the same day as they don't have to really come in much anyways.

Good idea! I did this too for after the first cycle! couldn't afford it on the 2nd. Think we will be definately need to go away if this 3rd cycle doesn't work....

Yay! same brand as me. bummer for it arriving on cd 8 though, that is so typical!!! So at least 5 weeks til starting then? 1st cyle I took bcp for 2 weeks, 2nd cycle a full strip which is 21 days and this time 5 weeks!!! Grrrr, because egg recipeient is on holiday mid way through due so I now have to stay on bcp for 2 extra weeks! nevermind.

Hi tinks!!! (tinks an I go way back on this other thread thats been going over a year!!!)
Gosh try and wish is paying more than me! no good for you but im at herts and essex and you don't have to pay any consult fees, so its 75 hfea feee and that would be it if you don't need icsi but if you do which we do it 700 I think. We are also having to pay for extras drugs this time aas they and aside from the normal drugs-steroids and heparin which is 40 for 10 injections-need one a day to continue for 12 weeks if I get BFP so that will add up a bit. Princess who you know, only paid 75 quid!!!!!

Schoolteacher - Yea I know now I have to start bcp on cycle day 2. Not much longer to wait now until I can start my bcp. I should start mine not long after you finish yours

G3mz - I start the microgynon somewhere around June 8th as that will be day 28 of this cycle and my cycles are anything from 28 days to 32 so if you start yours on 5th I will be roughly a week behind you and I have to agree with you, I have also never been wanting AF to arrive quicker

Hi god believer I looked up my local IVF clinic online and found the egg share information on there then discussed it further in our initial consultation

Hi schoolteacher wow you got your dates must be so exciting!! I can't wait to find out mine!! Hope il have more of an idea when I ring the clinic this week!!

Hi tryandwish not long now!!

Iv had some bad news this week we live in a rented property and our letting agent came to tell us Thursday that our landlord is going bankrupt so we have to move out no idea on how long we have our agent is hoping another property comes in with him soon for us!! And we are limited because we have pets and need space to park 3 cars and a recovery truck!! We also can't go to far as my daughter attends a local specialist teaching facility and moving her could have dramatic effects.

All this then upset me because just before we started this Ivf journey I went to see a famous psychic. I've seen many psychics in the past some very spot others not so good!! This one was right with a lot of thing like he described my house and even knew the colour I wanted to decorate but he didn't pick up on some major points in my life such as my daughter having disabilities
But he did tell me not to bother decorating because i wouldnt be in our house long and that we will move to a detached property that will have a white garage!! At the end I got to ask a question so I explained we had been struggling to conceive and will we ever have a child together? His answer upset me and also made me very angry!! He said that people were assessed to be given a child and I had to much stress in my life so I wouldn't be given a child while that stress was there!!
Yes my life can be stressful who's isn't? But if that was the case why are people who beat their children or take drugs or have abortions why are they given a child and not us women who are trying so hard to conceive a much wanted and loved child!!! It effected my mood for weeks and that's when we thought lets go for it let's have Ivf and prove him wrong!!
Now if we get a call to view a house like he described I will find it hard to keep the hope!! But one things for sure I'm keeping away from psychics from now on!!
