    Hi Girls

    Well this is the 4 Leaf Clover IVF & ICSI thread... hope it will be a successful one filled with :bfp:s and :baby:

    I have called the thread the 4 Leaf Clover IVF thread for this reason
    Four Leaf Clover-is a renown symbol that means good luck to the person who finds one. What do the leaves symbolize?
    One leaf is for FAITH...The second for HOPE... The third for LOVE... And the fourth for LUCK!

    You can add this clover to your signature by going here and copying and pasting code into your signature. http://www.glitter-graphics.com/graphics/728872 and also add this to your signature to add the text
    [*URL=http://www.sparklee.com][*IMG]http://img801.mytextgraphics.com/sparklee/2009/05/30/88175a8122ba2651ddfb5c022383f43b.gif[/*IMG][/url][*img]http://dl5.glitter-graphics.net/pub/1480/1480555ipgpdidffl.gif[/*img][/url*] - take out the stars before pasting.

    So good luck girls.. looking forward to sharing our journeys together

    Hello girls,

    I'm in, loving the siggy and crossing everything we all make it. Will be great to go through this together.

    Tanya - I am a day behind you - and start buserelin injections on the 10th June - so will be coming to you for advice when I am panicking over doing it the first day!
    But you're so lucky you only down reg for 10 days - i dont have my baseline scan till the 25th June - so at least 14 days for me - aden then find out whether I am ready to go onto the gonal F.

    The earliest possble egg collection date for me is approx the 9th July - so you are ahead of me - but we will go through some of the TWW together - and you will be my inspiration when you get your :bfp: first!!!

    Mrs G - have you got any timescales yet?

    Bit about me - I have been TTC for three years now and we are officially unexplained and FS believes IVF our best chance - and we are really fortunate to have three goes under the NHS - and this is number one.
    My only worry is that DH does have poor morphology - 8% at last check - although he has been sooo much healthier since and cut out loads of caffine and takes MACA now so hoping it has improved - but NHS wont recognise this as a problem although the WHO do. I saw a private FS a while back who recommended with his sperm we should have ICSI - but NHS wont do this the first time around. SO my biggest concern going into this (well, one of the hundreds I have...) is that we will go through all the drugs etc and then the eggs wont fertilize dan they will abandon the cycle and say we can have ICSI next tiem - which is what I asked for in the first place. But hey ho - one step at a time - gotta get to the 10th June first and the wait is KILLING me. I have never been a patient person!

    DH and I have been together since we were 16 and I knew the minute I met him and we kissed for the first time that I would be with him for the rest of my life and I would haev given everything up there and then to have his children. But we did the sensible thing and moved to London, worked on our careers, saved up, brought house, had a couple of cats etc etc and then as soon as we decied the time was right - it wouldn't happen. Since then I have turned 30 and the whole world and his dog (literally!) have got pregnant or currently are about to pop. It's been hard - but it has definitely brought us closer together - after a whole lot of fighting and me having to realise that he is never going to be as obsessed about it as me - so thankfully I found BnB to pour out my stresses too and we are much happier.

    :hugs::hugs::hugs:to you all,

    This is great to have all of you ladies to go through this with. I have no real life friends going through any of this. When I spoke with my FS last week he said to give him a call when I start my cycle next and we would start with the meds. That should be around June 12th. I have a class to attend on next week to give further instructions.

    A bit about me and DH. I just turned 40 and DH is 39. We have been together for almost 9 years but only married for 2. We decided when we got married we wanted to try for a baby. I got pg right away but miscarried at 9 wks. That was 2 years ago. No pg since. I have had 2 failed IUI's. The only reason they give me is my age. So we are going to give IVF a try now. We have 2 shots as that is all my insurance will cover. Good luck to everyone.

    Robin

    Hi Bec

    We haven't had a problem with NHS and morphology (that is also our problem). I think it varies so much from area to area. We are starting treatment in July, have got to ring when :witch: arrives which should be round 17th.

    Mendy, when are you starting?

    :hug:

    Good luck Tanya on starting your drugs. I have a teaching appointment this week and will see exactly what I am going to need to do. It is so exciting to be starting this journey. It gives me renewed hope.
