HCG was 8. So not happy about that. Doc said to wait another cycle to "try". Waiting to hear from new doc on Tuesday. I was set to try as soon as AF stopped. The rollercoaster seems to never end.

Oh Briss, I am so so sorry about your situation! I really hope you get a miracle, Honey. We're just gonna keep trying. OK?

8? Ugh...so close! I remember the closer I got to zero the slower it went. Took me two weeks to go from 8 to under 5. I waited almost two months after AF for my hcg levels to get low enough, but I couldn't try right away because I needed another surgery to check for D&E scarring and to see if my double uterus needed more trimming (it did). About two months after later, we were allowed to try again.

Roller coaster is right. Way up one day and couldn't be lower the next. *hug*

Little rant here.. I'm Scottish & naturally quite socialist in my thinking... And I believe in equality for all people... BUT..

Today while shopping I had a woman behind me in a queue with 3 kids.. Ages approx 4, 2 & practically newborn. 4 yr old running a muck, 2 yr old in a double buggy screaming his head off, & newborn babe being clutched by mother.. Mother?? Well, she was kind of a state.. Rotten teeth, some of them missing, greasy hair, very very overweight.. And yelling at the 4yr old girl 'Olivia!! Olivia!! Get back here now!!!'.. Over & over..

God... I was trying hard not to be judgemental.. Bcos who am I to say who should or shouldn't have kids- but seriously- I could be snatched that new baby out of her arms & run with it.

God forgive me but I was looking at the mum thinking 'wot a mess, looks very unhealthy, but bcos shes probably 27 or 28 years old shes lucky enough to have three gorgeous little kids.. & simply bcos I'm 38 I'm struggling'

I know it's a terrible way to think.. She's probably a nice person.... But still..

Rant over : )

Trust me - I think like that all the time - especially at supermarkets! I always see rather rougher than rough women screaming at their children and I feel a pang of anger and how unfair it all is........The need to be a mum knows no bounds and it's heartbreaking what we have to witness......

Oh, Juniper, I'm SO with you! I see that sort of thing from time to time and I have the same reaction!

AFM, I had my CD3 check this morning. I was told I have a cyst and can't try this month. I wasn't even surprised. Somehow I knew. I'm disappointed, but I didn't cry and freak out like I did the last time this happened.

Mixed feelings about Princess Kate having her baby today. I'm thrilled for her and William, but it's put the whole baby thing on the front news 24/7 and it's hard not to think about my own situation with all of the royal baby talk going on.

Big hugs to you Kat.....I am really hoping that next month will bring you better news.

Agree on the mixed feeling about the Royal Baby - so happy for the lovely couple but I can't help but feel sad too.......All so fairy tale for other people yet here we are struggling away......Very hard

kat, I am so sorry you cant try this cycle. can you still TTC naturally? Did they tell you why you cant do IUI with a cyst? is it to do with ovarian stimulation?

do not get me started on the royal baby paranoia, I am trying my best to ignore the whole thing but it's just impossible.
