We're great thanks MK! Bump getting much bigger I've bought LOADS! Waited so long for the BFP I bought a few babygrows before my 12 week scan - though I had the 7&9 week scans so I knew everything was in the right place/hb was good etc.. I'm almost done now! We had to be organised though as we're getting a kitchen extension in a few weeks so things will be manic!

Hope everyone is ok & welcome Lily

Wow. Looks like I've missed a lot! Congratulations Sarah and Aleja!! What wonderful news!

Thanks for sharing pic gettingbroody.

Welcome lily!

Mk- I really feel that iui will be successful for you! You expect to start after the new year?

Mrsp- happy to see you progressing well!!

Brassy, good luck on the clomid!

As for me, still in waiting mode and expect to be for months. Most days I don't even think about it and then other days it's all I can think about. Sister in law informed me over the holidays that they'll be looking to ttc #2 in early next year. Of course. It doesn't really bother me. But for a minute I was like grrrrr.

aleja - oooh, ok so the endo wasn't that bad. the SHG I had was the worst pain ever. did you have that and if so did it hurt? I've been thinking I'm really sensitive down there and have somewhat of a low pain tolerance :-S

mk8 - my ob/gyn didn't order the HSG and my fs was really surprised I hadn't have it either. She kept insisting/suggesting I had and I said no, I didn't have any x-ray down there. IDK why. What's it supposed to uncover or rule out? my tubes were SUPER clear thanks to the SHG and the ultra horrible pains I had during it. ouch! they shot the saline up three times bc they wanted to make sure, lol. it was nuts. when the technician asked the dr if she should shoot up more saline, I burst out NO! I was crying on the table. it was fun (not). My gf had iui twice and she said it was very painful. All I remember her saying over and over again is "of course it hurt, they have to go through your cervix". Sadly, neither iui worked for her. they tried it bc her dh has low sperm count and low mobility. they got preggo naturally 7 yrs after starting ttc. baby's healthy. I'm still at the point where I don't believe the pain will actually help me produce a baby. I feel at times like it's impossible for me to get preggo.. :-S GL, hon.

MrsG2010 - hello and thanks! :-)


AFM, I'm cramping at 10dpo. fx I won't have to start cycle monitoring..........

How exciting mrs p! I keep seeing ultra cute outfits for babies and can't wait to buy them! Ooo extension, exciting! Hope it won't be too stressful though!

Mrsg, welcome back! Waiting mode can be tough, but hopefully you're finding time to enjoy life without a bubs for now as I'm confident you will be a mama! In fact, I'm confident all of us will be! I know what you mean about some days being tough tho. At times I just throw my arms up in despair and bawl to my hubby. But I'm trying to stay positive and tell myself that this is making our relationship stronger. Hang in there.

Lily, ahhhh so you had the shg. I've been told that the Hsg is considered the gold standard for checking tube patency. Maybe worth requesting it just to ensure all tests have been covered?

hi mrsG, so glad to see you back hon. sometimes its good to take time out and recuperate. it is hard to keep going when there is no sight in end.

for me I am exhausted after a whole year of ivf related treatments. i am very lucky I got this far now. still find it hard to accept. i got another blood test on Monday then if all good a scan to see if there is a baby (or two!) in there!

Brassy, my DH is soooooo excited already. he is so cute! he is daydreaming of a baby future. whilst me I am feeling a bit negative and sooo nervous. I need to just enjoy the moment but its hard.
I told my mum n dad who told my brother and SIL. I was a bit annoyed as I think its too soon to celebrate just yet. I should have waited a couple of weeks but I couldnt help it!!!!!

mrsP wow you are more than half way. You sound very organised with all your baby stuff.

lily, i didnt have a SLG, only a HSG to check my tubes. I found the hsg the most painful thing so far. I was dying in pain at the time!

Mk, does this mean you will do the IUI early next year? you may not need 3 in a row!!!

hi everyone else

Gosh two Aleja! Imagine! I can imagine after the journey you are feeling nervous. I know it's a million times easier said than done but try to sit back and enjoy. As my mum says, when you have kids, you have a lifetime of worry! My mum cracks me up. I'm really chuffed for you. So cute that hubby's so excited too! Out if curiosity, did you do the test when he was there? How did you tell him etc?

Good luck with your blood test.

Oh and yes, h

Sorry bnb posted my post early and I can't go back to edit... Annoying!

So as I was saying, yup, hopefully 3 iuis aren't required as they're not cheap. Not as pricey as ivf of course and I'm grateful we have the choice to do assisted in this day and age. Here's hoping all if us will be mummies in 2013!

Thanks mk & Aleja. I'm on countdown to my maternity leave now, hopefully 12 weeks today! Don't know where the time is going! So much for 2nd tri being the easiest, my moodswings & emotions are all over the place & I'm so tired & not sleeping very well Baby Bump expanding nicely though. Must post a pic ASAP.

Aleja when do you think the scans likely to be? Sooo exciting possibly twinnies!

Mk sorry I'm sure you've already said but why you not eligible for IUI or IVF on the nhs?

Hey mrsp, because of where we live, we aren't eligible. Only certain primary care trusts allow it. The so called postal ivf lottery! Sigh. I was hugely frustrated and upset at first as hubby and I have worked since uni (and during uni), paid our taxes and we aren't entitled to help. The real kick in the teeth is when we had to pay for certain tests ourselves. That annoyed me massively! I think after seeing our fs, I felt so much better there was a plan. We initially wanted to go for it in jul but then our fs was on leave. Then we said aug but we had to do some more tests. But pushing things back a bit was ok as I felt at least we knew what the next step would be. I also didn't want to rush into it. Back in aug when we got told it was best to make sure all he tests were complete, the clinic thought if be upset or angry. On the contrary I agreed and felt its more important to be emotionally and physically ready for treatment. I also spoke to my mum who told me to try to really relax befire treatment to get the best possible outcome. after all, you gear so many stories where people give up trying then get their bfp or thought "fuck it, i will eat and drink what i want" dyring an ivf cycle as they cant be bothered to obsess. Plus more time to save!

I can't believe it's 12 weeks till mat leave mrs p! Woop!
