Ah hun that is completely rubbish, I had everything crossed for you that it would be good news :-(  This part ***** doesn't it, I don't know how some woman manage to go on and on, it gets you do down.  But try and stay positive, this time may not have been the right one but who says the next one isnt!  I pray you will be a mummy one day :o) Have you had a womb lining biopsy (just in case as this is what showed my NK cells up).  I would highly recommend it.  Am ok thanks, feeling a bit yuk (having side effects from the prog - wont go into detail lol), and cause I know the time is approaching where implantation may take place, am feeling a little down; like it's not going to happen again.  I feel time is dragging.....xx

Oh no :-(  I so hope it's not your period hun, fingers crossed....it could maybe be some late spotting, old blood so to speak, but I know this won't help you as I think I would be feeling pretty low right now.  Gutted for you...but it's not over yet so try and relax as much as you can (still get up and about though as you need to keep the blood flowing to yout uterus so no bed rest).  Keep me posted.  5 years is a long time, you must be so strong!!  3 years is getting tough enough!  We only get 1 IVF paid on the NHS you're really lucky, we need to pay for IVF next so there goes our savings lol...will be totally worth it though.  Hope you are ok and just remember there are loads of us who do know how you feel hun.  Thinking of you xx

Hi, yeah so it went ok today.  Last time my husband had round cells in his semen sample on the day so they couldn't put the sperm as high as they usually do, but this time all was grand.  We were delayed by an hour, but the nurses insisted this was ok.  I feel really drained today, think lots of it is probably relief that we got this far and all going well so far!  HOw long have you been ttc if you don't mind me asking?  We have been trying since just before our wedding, 3 years almost :-(  It's just horrible isn't it when your body and heart craves something that comes so easily to others....but I do think one day, we will get our little miracle.  How are you today?  Ive not to test until 26th March but we will be on our hols then....I will test the day before and pray for a BFP xx

Thanks :o) I know, I was so pleased.  We only had 1 mature last time with 3 little ones coming up behind so this is much better.

How long down are your pains...not trying to get you excited or anything, and I know every pregnancy is totally different but one of my best mates had a pain down in her pelvis and she had literally only just tested positive!!  It was really low though...so not your hip bone area, more in and down where your knicker line sits at top of leg?!  Who knows....maybe something amazing is happening.

And no brown yuk yet too...all sounds quite promising!!

Fingers crossed for you...loads of babydust your way :o)

Hi, well I have 4 mature follicles :o)  Can't believe it, and they are letting us proceed due to my raised NK cells.  Follies ranged from 16.1mm to 22.7mm.  Taking my pregnyl shot tonight and then back to hospital Friday for the IUI - wish me luck :-)  Lots of babydust to you x

Hey, yeah ICSI is quite different (this is when your the sperm is actually injected into egg and left to divide before the emby's are put back in). IUI is not as intrusive...I take the drugs & injections, go in with my Hubby next Friday morning and he gives his sample to be washed so only the best sperm are put back inside me, and then it's just down to sheer luck I guess whether his sperm meets my egg(s) AND manage to implant This is where my NK cells attack anything trying to do so :-(  I'm not 100% about your cramps, but the timing could possibly be implantation.  I pray its not the other dreaded thing...try taking it easy, eat a low GI diet and dont stretch etc.  Take care & lots of baby dust x

Hey, yeah the scan went fine thanks.  Started my menopur injections last night, and tonight will be the last of my clomid.  Then I have a further injection Saturday and Monday before my day 11 scan on Wednesday.  What is the other drug you are taking?  Just before the actual IUI I will need to use cyclogest pessaries twice a day (progesterone) and prednisolone 20mg (steroids) to try lower these NK cells I have too many of, and if I am extemely lucky and blessed to fall pregnant, then I stay on these last 2 until the 12th week.  So you are playing the waiting fame at the moment :-(  It's horrible isn't it...one of these days it is so going to be worth it.  I can't wait to know and feel a little part of us growing in my belly :-D  Loads of luck with your cycle....mind keep me posted!

Hi there, thank you. That's great your IVF cycle sounds like it's going well so far. It's dreadful waiting isn't it. I was advised by my acupuncturist not to stretch, not to take any hot baths and to eat a low GI diet if this helps. Oh and to drink plenty of water! Very important. Also not to take any caffeine so decaf only (my Hubby and I now drk only decaf) and eek this means no chocolate!!! Unless its 70%+ cocoa dark then you are allowed a square a day if you crave any. Sadly our IVF failed last summer but it was a fab cycle with 16 eggs collected and 14 embryos (none frozen).  This will be down to the amount of NK cells I have so at least now we can start treating these during any IVF/IUI's.  So I've got my day 5 scan today....fingers crossed!  Keep me posted xx
