Hey :) I'm back, after a weekend away with no internet...

Good luck for your proceedures babycrazy and brownie. I will cross my fingers for you both! It's such a fine line we walk between not wanting to get hopes up too much but feeling hopeful/excited that you are trying something that might very well work.

Happy to discuss my endo lap etc anytime, Pitterpatter - after two years of unsuccessful TTC the specialist sent me for a laproscopy. I have always had bad period pain but it wasn't as bad over the last few years and so it wasn't expected to be very bad endo. My lap ended up being hours longer than expected and they were really thorough at clearing out extensive Stage 4 endo everywhere, except some on my bowel that would have involved a bowel surgeon and ideally my consent as it was very risky. They said I can go back for that once I have had my family if I choose. I can't believe the massive difference having this surgery has made to my energy levels and time of the month. I now have next to no pain at all with periods - just some mild discomfort occassionally on Day 1. I guess I hadn't realised just how much I was actually putting up with that wasn't 'normal'. I have been slimmer around the belly area since surgery too, which is a bonus.

It is 11 months on now though, and still not BFP so that part has been very disappointing

Thanks Reddahlia - am off to be impregnated tomorrow afternoon lol. I have absolutely no expectations this time. I am going to go through the motions and deal with the result in two weeks whatever that may be.

Hope everyone else is hanging in there ok.

I know exactly where you're coming from with the no expectations thing, Babycrazy. You just never know though! Best wishes with it all tomorrow and I hope you are able to relax in the next two weeks

Best of luck for the next two weeks BC Smile

I'm just nearing the end of a cruel-ish cycle. Lots of symptoms, a decent chart (unlike last few months) and a faint line on a test yesterday morning led me to get my hopes up quite a bit! 
But my temp plunged this morning, so I'm thinking it was an evap line- I've had a LOT of those before. I don't often test early or get my hopes up too high nowadays, but this time I did .. gah!

So team here's the latest advice from my nurse at FA - after treatment (iui) go for a walk or exercise and have some sex to stimulate the blood flow to the uterus. She said if it were normal circumstances you'd have a shag then carry on with life none the wiser until AF didn't come. Great philosophy I think! Off for a wee walk I go then into the car and home again.

Hi ladies! I have met of few of you over on the TTC thread.

DH and I have been TTC #1 for just shy of 4 years. We went through 2 funded IVF/ICSI cycles last/this year. Of the 4 embryos replaced I MC 3 times and got a BFN from the last one in January this year.

I had my 3rd laparoscopy for endo in Febuary and DH has such a low count he's considered infertile.

We have an appointment with FA next month after we come back from holiday to discuss our 3rd cycle, which will hopefully take place in the new year when we should have the money.
We are hoping to be doing EC-ET in Auckland with IMSI.

I guess you could say we're 'trying' naturally in the mean time as we don't use protection and haven't for almost 4 years.
I was actually convinced I was naturally PG in May as I got all my normal PG symptoms from 3DPO. But they disappeared 3 days before AF and I got BFN's. the first day of AF was so incredibly painful so it adds to my suspicions of being PG.

I think being apart of this thread will be easier for me. There are times I can't handle new women on the TTC being down that they aren't PG after 2 months then get PG the next month. On my down days seeing people there for such a short time is really heartbreaking for me.

Hi fairylight!! You totally hit the nail on the head with how I've felt from time to time. It's hard - sometimes I loathe being a veteran on here!!

Lol brownie - managed circuit tonight but unsure whether I'll be getting any of the other suggestion! Mentioned to the fella and he wasn't exactly jumping out of his pants about it haha.

Fairylight!!! You def hit the nail on the head! I find it really hard to know how to deal with finding out your friends and family are pregnant even though you love them and are happy, it just sux that we have all been trying for so long and booooom 1 or 2 months and they are pregnant... When will it be our turn as BC says in her sig!?

hahaha Baby C, this made me laugh! good on your for doing your circuit!!! Hope DH managed to jump out of his pants haha then you would have completed all the advice

Hi Ladies,

Ive just joined the Oh Baby! page and decided to give the forums ago.

Myself and my husband have been trying for our first baby for coming up 3 years. A month ago we had our first appointment with Fertility Associates were i found out i have trouble ovulating and have mild pcos. It was abit of a kick in the teeth but we knew something was wrong as we have had no success in such a long time. Both our health is great and my husbands "boys" are in working order, which was a big relief.

I start my first round of Clomiphene on Friday, which is abit of a surprise as we weren't expecting anything for another month as my average cycle is between 40-55days. and it has arrived on day 32.

By reading through the posts above a few of you are trying this method? It would be good to have some people to talk to who are going through it aswell.

I hope i am in the right thread! my apologise if im not, maybe someone can point me in the right direction :)

Welcome Jane. Totally in the right thread. There's also a Clomid thread down in the Coping with Infertility section of the forums, a lot of the girls in there hang out in various places so here's just as good as any.
Sorry its taking so long....finding out something is wrong totally is a kick in the teeth. Hopefully the pills are the trick you need to get a baby!

Hi Fairylight- yup sometimes it's super hard being on here with all the BFP action for newbies as horrible as that sounds. I sometimes avoid the TWW thread for this reason. 

I also find it hard when those who are trying for #2 or more start talking about their other child(ren) and their pregnancy experiences casually even though it's not meant to cause hurt. I know that doesn't happen in this thread but there was a time a couple of weeks ago in another thread where it was making me feel pretty crap! Pretty irrational for me to be like that but hey

Oh and welcome Jane Smile 

My specialist said he might start me on clomid but I don't really know much about it. I seem to be ovulating but is it meant to help you be more regular and have a longer LP?
Cause he didn't say I have PCOS or anything
