Hello everyone, how we doing? Last week's thread had some great discussion topics .... any suggestions for this week
So my news is after 6 and a bit weeks af finally arrived at the weekend .....hooray!! and so the clomid rollercoaster begins again. This cycle I will be having a trigger shot to make sure we don't have another repeat performance. This is the third and possibly last cycle of clomid so fingers crossed otherwise we might have to revisit that private IVF discussion again :(
More pregnancy announcements at work this week .... ho hum. Anyway hope everyone is doing ok .....

Hi Diamonds! Woohoo for AF. Really hope clomid plus the trigger make for a better cycle this month. The private IVF must be a big big decision. Why is TTC such a mind whirl!? It really should be simple.
AFM - I'm doing ok. I'm enjoying a little break from work and applying for new positions. On the whole I feel quite chirpy but I am taking a bit of a back seat from this site. I can't stand logging on to the 'I love my bump' type threads, especially when I'm doing so well and keeping perky. This board really needs a make over.

Hi Ducky, glad you are feeling perky. I can understand why you want to step back a bit, as a close friend of mine said the other day this is the one time when you really do need to think about and look after yourself (and she speaks from experience on the dtc front). Good luck with the jobs and remember we are here whenever you need to talk.

Diamonds - Hellooooo AF lol, hopefully the trigger shot + clomid will bring the result needed. If I remeber, (and in a non-stalkerish way) you were looking at booking for you r parents to fly over, did you tell them in the end about the ttc'ing or are they now all booked up?
Ducky - Good to hear your feeling perky, somethimes it is nice just to feel happy and not put too much pressure on yourself.
AFM - I am now waiting for AF to arrive in the next 10 days - 2 weeks to start IVF. Was definately right to delay last month with 16-19 hour days it would have been to much, frustrated dur to the delay being for work but the right move. The prices here are steep (same as yours Diamonds) so if it had failed I would have been kicking myself, can still fail of course but at least given myself a better chance.
We also had a family anouncement too but I guess the positive of living abroad you can turn of the computer and not think about it!
Sounds like I missed some good chat last week :)
I think we need some happy talk this week, so what is you 'win' of the day? Could be anything from getting your nails done to getting an extra 10 mins in bed, just something that made you smile. Mine - my H has decided to go on a diet and therefore not eat dinner in the evening, just something light which means I no longer have to cook dinner until this whim of a diet is finished - happy days! lol
Hello all who come on later.

Hi LC, yes you are right in thinking that my parents were looking at coming out here. However there hasn't been any more talk of actually booking flights and I haven't said anything to them - still putting my head in the sand over it all.
Wow not long to go now for you. Will you take some time off work during the IVF?
Well my win for the day was realising I have just one more day left at work this week and then I have Thurs, Fri, and next Monday off :-) I too could have written your win LC as my H is also trying to cut back and has decided no dinners for him in the evening and no cooking for me either!

Would love your win Diamonds, could do with one like that too!
Not expecting to take much time off, they said egg collection can be quite uncomfortable so maybe then but otherwise will see how is goes. I earned quite a few lieu days recently so decided to save these and use if needed over this time. Told my manager I had some treatment coming up although not life threatening I may not be able to be flexible when I take time which he was ok with and hopefully stays that way. Think he knew better than to ask what it was for.
I think I am more nervous about starting than I admit to myself, I am just focusing on the trip home afterwards which will hopefully take my mind of the waiting to find out if it has worked.
apologies that turned into a bit of ramble!

Hi girls, just a quick one from me.
Glad AF is here for ya diamonds so that you cna start your clomid steps.
Goodluck with your IVF treatmenet Lucky, these 2 weeks will hopefully not drag for you.
Like Ducky, I too am going to take leave for a while. I'm finding things particularly difficult at the moment, and my bloods, the other day, were better than previous but I had hoped they would be more, plus my temperature taking had been getting my hopes up.
I've got another 3 months on clomid but i think i'll throw in a wee break as I have my consultant catch-up on the 1st May (next wednesday) and i'm hoping he will up my dosage.
i'll report back after my consultant meeting. Take care x

LC good that your boss is supporting some time off and being flexible, one less thing to worry about. A trip home could be a good distraction (lucky you, wish I was going home too).
MB sorry to hear you are having a bit of a tough time. Hope you get the results you want next week at your appt with the consultant.
Sounds like its going to be a bit quieter around here for a bit with people taking a step back. Really hope we get some good news and a BFP on here soon!

Diamonds - glad to hear AF arrived and you can try something different this time. Lets hope it works!!
Ducky - I know what you mean. The board all seems baby/pregnancy/mummy focused and all we have is one thread. It's really hard some days but others its not so bad.
Lucky - glad to hear you feel you made the right decision and can now look forward without added stresses you don't need. Nice to hear your boss is being supportive. I wish you so much luck for your ivf keep us updated.
MB - sorry to hear you're a bit down about things but its understandable. Good luck for your appointment I hope he ups the dosage and I hope that works.
AFM - I'm on 2ww I think I ovulated last thurs but ff thinks sat. If ff is right then we didn't dtd on sat or sun so we're probably out! Oh well it's too late now anyway. Just got to wait it out. Loving the nice weather shame it isn't going to last! X

Hello browny - you know your body better than some prog/app so keeping my fingers crossed that you are right and there is a chance. Hope you have things to distract you during the 2ww!
