Twinkle - Ohh thats fantastic!!! Great news!! I look forward to your update, make sure you let us know. Wishing you the best and hoping everything works our perfect for you! x

Lizzie - Awwwww Thanks, yeah I really hope so. I mean last time when I had my IVF they did say slow is good, so yeah lets see. haha your comment made me laugh, I was so like that. I had to lose some good weight to even get into IVF treatment and sometimes its just so hard but with help of others and loads of reasearch I managed however I do wish I lost much more weight before this round but Im not going to stress over that now. Iv just been making sure I am eating the right thing.
Do you a goal in mind you are working towards?
Thats good you have your acupuncture sessions booked, yeah I know it would feel like end of May is forever but when the time comes your going to think 'Oh that went fast'
- Just keep yourself busy in doing things, activity, going out with friends etc. those things really help and time just somehow passes. x

Thanks yearning heart. I got my bmi down to 29 from 39 so am fairly happy with what I've achieved although suspect I'll have about 6lbs to lose after this week. It won't be an issue to shift it before my first appointment I'm just a bit annoyed with myself. It's like I can only be good for so long before I find it difficult to ignore cheese and wine! It will be different if I ever get my bfp I don't mean I'd risk that

Twinkle, thats fantastic news, looking forward to today's update, so exciting

Yearningheart, sounds like all going great for you too, update after tomorrows scan, I'm sure this is going to be a lucky thread

Lizzie, I know what you mean, ive been naughty, Fri night I had 3 glasses of wine, was out for dinner for a 21st bday but it made me feel bad, my bmi has been fine last couple times they checked, cant remember what it was, im 5ft 6 and 3 quarters and just over 10 stone so I think I better be careful, I used to be so bloody skinny when I was a teenager, now I have a belly I know I will never get rid of! Not that I'm bothered, all I want is a baby!

Emz, how are you?

Hey girls, hope all is well!
Yearningheart, how did your scan go?
Lizzie, try not to stress about being good or bad, you've done so well already losing weight. I really didn't deprive myself that much this time, other than alcohol and I stopped caffeine all together just before stims. I figured being a saint didn't do me much good for our last 2 cycles, so I wasn't gonna make myself miserable this time. However, DH is downstairs with his brother and dad getting stuck into wine, port and cheese now that he's done his bit lol, and I'm a bit jealous!
AFM, our 6 good eggs fertilised and have gone into the EEVA incubator. We'll get another call from the embryologist tomoro morning with an update on the early footage to see how they're progressing, and hopefully an indication of whether it'll be a 3 or 5 day transfer. Really hoping its gonna be a day 5 as we've never got that far before, and it would just give me that extra bit of hope.
Anyway, night everyone, enjoy the bank holiday! Xo

Lizzie - oh wow that's soo good! Bmi from 39 to 29! How long did it take to lose that much? I lost about 3 bmi and that took forever. Don't worry all this struggle will be worth it x

Star - Awww thanks! Yep I hope it is a lucky tread for us all. X

Twinkle - how are you? Did the embryologist call? Let us know, looking forward to hearing the updates. X

- I'm at my appointment, waiting to be called for a scan. I really hope they see good number of eggs and they give me a date for the egg collection. I'm too excited and want to move on, can't wait to finish the injections. Lol
Anyways I will update after my appointment. How is everyone else? Are you ladies doing anything special this bank holiday?

Twinkle thats great news, cant wait for your updates! I stopped caffeine a couple of months ago, for a week I had bad headaches but ok now, I sleep better and dont miss caffeine at all, even through a night shift it makes no difference not having it which makes me wonder why I ever tho
ght it did lol, I actually sleep better the day after a night shift after not drinking it all night!

Yearningheart, hope the scan went well and u can finish the injections
Were just taking a picnic to a forest and walking the dog, the only exercise I actually do though it is everyday! Hoping the weather stays sunny

Emz and lizzie, how are you both?

Hi everyone, sorry i haven't been about it was Hubbys birthday yesterday & things were a tad hectic.
Well my scan went well on Friday & we counted at least 9 little follicles but there could be more. I am going for egg collection tomorrow at 10.45am but we have to be there by 9.15am which means an earlyish start for us as we are about an hours drive away & in rush hour traffic should be fun.
Thankfully no injections or anything for me today as i did my trigger shot last night. Slightly nervous for tomorrow but I'm sure all will be fine.
I hope everyone else is ok :-) xx

Star - Oh that sounds nice, a walk in the forest. That is something I am trying to do every day, a walk since I cant do too much exercise or great body movement.

emz - Ohhhh thats great news!!!!!! How exciting!! Im so happy for you, hopefully they find loads of excellent quality eggs and everything goes smooth and well. Keep us posted on updates.

Hope everyone is doing well. x

- I had my scan today, the follicles are still not big enough, I have about 3 10mm size follicles. It has to reach at least 18mm size in order to go for egg collection so I have to continue the stims all like normal. I have another scan on Friday (I am assuming that will be that last scan before egg collection) The follicles in my body grow slowly (Apparently those with PCOS that is what happens) That is the same thing that happened during my first IVF, I was on stims for like 14 days, same thing is happening this time. I guess everyones body is different. I had another blood test today because they lost my last blood test sheet! Believe it or every scan I went to, I had to do a blood test! All these injections! Cant wait til its over. Anyhow thats enough of me going on. I am hoping and praying we hear good news from emz and twinkle

xxxx

Sorry you have to wait longer yearningheart but with all the waiting we have to do it will all be worth it in the end, I know what you mean about the blood tests, they seem never ending and I had to repeat alot for the ivf as when I had done them before it was too long ago and they weren't in date enough!
