Had my appt at fertility clinic on Wednesday, so we're starting on a long protocol IVF this cycle. Excited and nervous. Fingers crossed it'll work.

Happy new year and good luck this year with your fertility pathway. May this be the year for all of us.

Jeez Aleja..........I just reviewed your siggy. Even with IVF, you sure did go through quite a journey. I'm sincerely happy for you, because I feel that even if my own road seems rocky, through you and what you've acheived......perhaps there is always hope and things do turn out okay.

So happy for you Cupcake. I think IVF really is the way to go after a long journey. I'm so tired of this. After finishing a few more IUI's (which I know won't work), I can't wait to start IVF. Please keep us informed of your progress, I'm super interested since you're starting out.

For everyone else, Happy New Year!

Update on me: Just finished a natural cycle and yes, AF showed up a few days late. I guess a cycle without Clomid was really screwy. Can you imagine the anxiety of being a few days late? OMG, how there was hope in those few days. But when AF did show, I was okay with it. Now I can start my 3rd IUI.

Hope everyone is having a great day!

Thanks gals.

Lily, treatments on hold basically because of finances. DH and I are moving in the spring. Turns out the new state has better insurance mandates for infertility than the state we live in now. So it makes sense for us to wait. I don't have the money for IvF anyhow. :/

Good luck cupcake and truly!! Fingers crossed!

Hi girls!
Cupcake and trulyoo good luck with treatment!
MrsG...sorry about cycle 24...I am very interested in your theory that bad teeth could cause sperm issues. I think everything that increases the body's inflammation could have detrimental effects on fertility. I had actually read a story here once about a lady would was ttc for a long time and fell preggers immediately after having her bad tooth fixed!

How is everyone else??

I am trying not to obsess about ttc...Have acquired a 'new' old addiction, exercise! I am trying to focus on that and making me as healthy as possible!

Hi ladies,
Hope everyone is well x

Cupcake I'm so happy for you that you have started the IVF cycle. It is very exciting as it can bring a renewed sense of hope. Keep us posted.

Truly you never know about the IUIs. Each cycle is a fresh start and just because the others haven't worked it does not mean this one wont.
Yes I was certainly not one of the lucky girls who got pregnant first go with IVF! However I always hoped that I would fall pregnant within a year, similarly to all the fertile couples who can take up to 12 months. I see IVF as having to start from scratch. Having said that I know of a couple of stories of women who have previously had IUis getting a BFP straight away on IVF - maybe their bodies have accustomed to the meds or something??

Are you using injectibles this round?

Brassy, believe me the obsessing never ends even after you get your BFP (and it will happen!) My TTC obsession has stalled replaced by obsessing about whether I will stay pregnant .
I went for a long walk last Saturday and that night I had a brown 'blob' of mucus (TMI) in my undies. I was so upset. Nothing since then.

I rang the nurse and was told that I had to wait for a scan on Friday to see the bubba but basically there is nothing I can do - if I start bleeding I have to go to ER. I've been resting since and so far no more scares.

Aleja. I know how worrying that is. Brown blood should be nothing to worry about but no matter how many times we hear that I'm not sure we can stop ourselves! Fxd you have no more scares I had brown spotting just before my 6 week scan and have been having it the last 2 days also. Went to the dr and she checked the baby's heartbeat (which was fine) so hopefully it's just one of those things... If it continues for a few more days I'll probably go to ER and ask for a scan (if they'll give me one ) My 20 week apt is next Tues so at least I'll be getting another full check then. Hopefully it'll have stopped today.
