Down Under

I created this blog to help me as I go through IVF. I feel quite isolated and have found other blogs very helpful. I need somewhere to vent and ramble on, whilst I'm probed and prodded down under.

Amazing

Don't you think it's amazing when lurking on the two week wait board someone posts that they are 14 odd days past a 2/3/5 day transfer that they are spotting? They ask if this is late implantation bleeding and someone gets on and reassures them that it is and they had it and now have quadruplets or something like that. Because it never is for me, it's always my period.

Beta negative and now shooting Gonal-F at 300ml tonight on a good ol' flare cycle. I must need my head read, but I can't let go. Not until my ovaries totally fail, maybe then I'll get the hint. Also rather scared of failing again, I've even lost count of the number of times I've done this. Perhaps the generous funding of Medicare and the no limits on cycles no matter what your age in Australia has it's downside. While there is even a slight chance and we can use my wage to pay for it we feel we have to keep trying. Luckily my first sewing project has been a brown velvet A-line skirt, just in time to hide my Gonal-F thighs over the next 2 weeks.

Cheers!!!

MC I'm so sorry about the negative beta. Glad you are getting right back up, however.

You keep at it if that's what your head and your heart tell you. Stop counting, the number doesn't matter, only the current cycle. If there is a chance, take it!

I'm sorry about the negative beta. Your persistance to have a child is inspiring and I wish you all the strength you need to get what you want.

I'm glad that you are up and at'em again. You will know when you are ready to stop, until then you are the best judge of what the right answer is.

That stuff about implantation bleeding on the boards always gets me, too. If it hasn't implanted by 10 days post a 3 day transfer, it ain't gonna. Although now I know that there can be other kinds of bleeding...
