    Yay! :happydance:

    I just wrote in your journal, but how exciting!!

    You've already been to an info evening haven't you? do you learn much? I was just told we will meet all the consultants and nurses, not sure what else to expect! Also was it awkward with there being other couples there, or did you get chatting to anyone? Sorry for all the questions! :haha:

    Yes, we've done ours and I find it really useful. It was very busy, you could ask questions as they went along or you could ask individually at the end. They spent a lot of time explaining the process, when the drugs start, scans and how many etc along with a detailed powerpoint and their brochure. Talked about blastocysts and egg freezing. I found it fascinating and I have a much clearer idea now of what we'll be going through.

    We didn't really talk to other couples, there wasn't really the opportunity. Had a tour of the clinic and went into all the treatment rooms. Met some of the staff.

    I came out feeling a lot better about it all. Not long now for you to wait :dance:

    Hi

    I am hoping to start my second IVF/ICSI cycle in september or October. I got zero fertilisation with my first cycle at the beginning of June so we are more than likely going to be going for ICSI next time round. I have to phone with my August period to organise a start date. I will be on long protocol again so egg collection and embryo (hopefully) will be in October I think. It is such a rollercoaster so it will be good to have some more cycle buddies to talk the process through with xx

    Hi Girlies, I found you! We didn't go to an IVF evening, we went through everything at our consultation instead. Lots about embryo development, our options regarding freezing and transfer, the drugs, amount of appointments, that sort of thing.

    Hi Cvaeh, sorry that your first cycle didn't work. As you've been there before you can probably give us first timers a heads up on what to expect. Hopefully ICSI will give you a good amount of embies. Did they say why they didn't fertilise before?

    I'm hoping that we will start in August, but we find out for definate on Wednesday. Eek!

    Cvaeh, I am sending you some :dust: that your second cycle is successful for you. Fingers crossed that ICSI will give you some fertilised eggs this time.

    Wifey, good luck for Wednesday :hugs: Let us know how you get on! August would be good :) I am so impatient to get started.

    Hi lovely,

    I'm having quite a good day today. Went into work early and did four hours overtime to help swell our savings. Mostly I'm just excited for Wednesday and researching high protein, low potassium diets. Apparently it's meant to help.

    Lol Zowie, my researching reached a new height after our appointment! The fact that it's imminent has pushed me into high gear :rofl:

    Hi! I will be starting in IVF in this timeframe as well. I expect my day 1 to be around Aug 24ish. This will be my first. I have done 1 clomid + IUI and then 1 clomid alone and then 1 injectibles + IUI .... all BFNs. I'm so scared of IVF not working.
    Also I'm not sure how to manage this with my work. I typically travel every week for work, and right now I have no idea what I will be doing or where I will be going in Sept and Oct but I will somehow have to tell them I can't travel during that time without telling them why. I am taking 2 weeks of vacation and I hope to time it for when I really need to be home for tests and procedures, but right now I can't predict when that will be exactly.
    Good luck to everyone!

    :hi::howdy: Samba and AG75

    I know i'll need to make plans when I know when the dates are. Haven't told work about the IVF either so should be interesting trying to work round it all.

    Have you noticed how much of our lives we spend waiting :haha:
