Trying to conceive

Afternoon all! Very quiet on here! Well, I'm back after a lovely holiday away & trying to catch up on all the threads. Hope everyone is keeping well.
AFM - CD26, 13DPO but I reckon that's FF being wrong! I reckon I'm only 11 or 12 DPO so expecting AF tomorrow or Wednesday - the cramps and all the usual signs are these so I'm pretty sure I'm out. Have my first fertility referral on Wednesday. Not sure how I feel about it - sad that it's got to this but hopeful that they can (and will) help.
Enjayee - huge hugs for you xxxx

Evening Tayto, glad you had a good holiday x
Good luck on Wednesday, it is horrible that you got this far but positive that hopefully they find a reason which is again so wrong.
AFM, CD24 but only about 6dpo and AF due 6 days according to the apps so gives me a short LP if it turns up then. Trying to stay positive and hope my IC turn up to get testing as I don't take any notice of symptoms since my wierd cycle.

Tayto - Glad you had a lovely holiday. I hope your appointment goes well and you get a plan of action sorted.
MrsT - Fingers crossed for you.
Thinking of our lovely Enjayee and sending lots of love to her, life can be so unfair :-(
Hope everyone else is doing ok.
Nothing to report from me wishing the week away as usual!

Mrs-T - Is a 12 day LP short for you? It's a norm for me and I thought short LP is only defined as under 10? Fingers crossed for you for this cycle xx
Lulu - How's things going with Lucy? Any pics yet? Saw on the other thread you have your app in mid-May - is that the first NHS fertility referral?
Lots of hugs to Enjayee and CC as I know they are both going through some difficult times at the moment - we're all here for you both if you need us xx
AFM - CD1 - onwards to cycle 14. Very busy at work so taking my mind off the horrible cramps I'm currently experiencing. Thanks for all your good vibes for tomorrow!

Tayto - She is good thank you, we love her :-) Yes appointment is NHS refferal, fingers crossed we start getting somewhere now. Sorry it's CD1 hope the cramps ease off soon xx
28/04/2015 at 11:44
Lulu - have you been sent a questionnaire then? One for you and one for H to fill in about all things TTC? We've got ours and I've been holding off filling in the weight bit in case I lose a lb or two :-)
28/04/2015 at 12:33
No wasn't sent anything like that just a letter with our appointment date and time, strange how the NHS do things so differently everywhere. We will be seeing the NHS specialist first at our local hospital so I guess she will go over everything then refer us on to the private clinic, is that what your appointment will be as well?
28/04/2015 at 12:34
Sorry should say, I'm hoping she will refer us to private clinic she might not if she thinks we should try longer and she might want us to have more tests done as well as mine were all done privately.
28/04/2015 at 14:15
For us, we have been referred to the NHS clinic within a private fertility clinic. We have had the initial tests done by our doc and we have to fill out this questionnaire about our ttc efforts.
I do hope the private tests you've hd will be taken into account although I do know they sometimes like to do repeats but I think that's only where something was amiss the first time around.... (I'm expecting they will send my H for another SA)
Like you say, they all do it in different ways - you'd never know they were the one organisation!
28/04/2015 at 18:22
Good luck tomorrow Tayto x
Sorry to hear AF caught up with you :(
Hi Lulu, hope you are well x
AFM, trying to hold out hope no idea what is going on. Feeling rather gas filled but that is no different to AF coming anyway. Had hoped my IC would arrive today but nope so can't even test in the morning :(
28/04/2015 at 19:42
Tayto. Hope your visit tomorrow goes well.
Lulu. Good luck for your appointment in May
Mrs T- hope all' swell
AFM- work trip to Belgium next week- chocolates . Have a training session this Thursday at work on Fertility treatment. One of the doctor's from a nearby clinic coming in. Should be interesting. Only one person at work knows I'm going to have treatment and for now planning on keeping it that way.
So sorry to hear Enjayee's news.

I don't really know where I should be posting at the moment. Thank you all for your support. I've decided to let my thread die now because every time I see the title it reminds me of what I had. I'm still bleeding and am waiting for it to stop. I want to be pregnant again but I don't know whether to try after the bleeding has stopped or wait for my next period so we can wait for IVF: Either way I am terrified. I don't want to wait any more, I waited for 19 months to get a positive test, May will bring me to 20 months and then if IVF doesn't work there's a good chance we'll hit the two year mark. I'm so so scared. So so so so scared. Last night I wrote a letter to my baby to say goodbye which made my husband cry this morning. I haven't been outside since I got back from the clinic on Monday and I've been sitting in the living room with the curtains drawn as I can't face the world going about their business whilst I'm trying to piece my world back together and trying to make sense of it. I was so happy for ten days and now I've just imploded. Well meaning people are telling me to go outside but I'm terrified. I can't be around people yet, I'm not ready. I have my psychologist session this afternoon so I'll be outside for that but I'm scared of being in the bike lanes behind someone who has a kid on a bike. At the weekend I was wondering whether I would put a seat on the back or front of the bike but now I don't have to worry about that and that hurts. I want someone to take this away and I want my baby back, I have never known pain like this before.

Enjayee - post where you feel comfortable, we are all here to help in any way we can. I'm so sorry you're going through this I can't even begin to imagine how you feel. I really wish I had something helpful to say. I do believe it will happen for you and you will go on to have your much wanted baby but I know that won't really help you now. Lots of love xxx
Tayto - I think I will end up needing another HyCoSy at least which is annoying but as mine was inconclusive I'm sure they will want to do it again :-( I hope your appointment goes well.
Mrs T - I hope your IC's arrive soon, when is af due?
Hopeful - Enjoy Belguim yum!! Your training sounds interesting feel free to pass on any new knowledge :-)
AFM - Postive opk yesterday (thanks for those lovely tayto) so ov will be either day 13 or 14 which is good for me as I've had a few cycles of oving earlier than that which my acupuncturist told me could mean I was releasing an egg that wasn't mature enough. Still trying to remain positive that it could still happen naturally even after all this time.
Hi to all who follow x
29/04/2015 at 11:29
Enjayee - Just to echo Lulu - post wherever you feel comfortable & take your time with coming to terms with everything. Look after yourself lovely xxx
Mrs-T - Hope your IC's turn up soon - everything crossed for you x
Hopeful - Enjoy Belgium! Good idea on keeping your IVF plans quiet - I plan to do the same if I need to go down that road.
Lulu - hope the IC's bring you some luck & enjoy the good bit coming up. That's interesting what your acupuncturist said about immature eggs - they don't/can't actually do a test for them, can they?
AFM - CD2 and cramps still pretty bad. Appointment at 4 today. I'm not bothered about it as I'm expecting they will just fob us off (the waiting game again!) but H is all up for it - has a list of questions and all! I will push for a repeat SA for H though and a HSG for me. Might also mention the pain during ov but, again, not expecting much from it.
Hello to all who follow x
29/04/2015 at 13:28
Tayto - I don't think there is a test for quality, I think they can only tell when they collect eggs for IVF. Sorry your cramps are still bad. I hope they don't fob you off, you know your stuff so just ask for the hsg and be persistant lol! Good on your H for having the questions, did he have a 2nd SA or just the one? If he's only had one he will have another I'm sure. Good luck! xx
29/04/2015 at 14:23
Thanks Lulu - I'm just about to leave for the appointment now. H has only had the one so I'm pretty sure they will offer another one - it's almost 3 months so I'm hoping for improvements. Will update when I get back.
29/04/2015 at 16:46
Good luck at your appointment Tayto, hope they don't fob you off x
29/04/2015 at 17:24
How did you go Tayto?
29/04/2015 at 17:43
Thanks for all the vibes ladies. Initially, I was feeling very negative about the whole thing - it didn't feel like anything more than what our GP had already said & he kept pointing us to the 2 year wait. We did push a bit and he has agreed to send me for a HyCoSy and H needs to go back to his doc for another SA so not so bad really. If H's next SA is the same or worse and/or my HyCoSy shows a blockage, he will bring us back for further discussions. If all is well, we need to keep trying until we get to the two year mark.
29/04/2015 at 18:48
Glad it was slightly positive Tayto, hopefully you won't need that 2yr mark x
