Sorry Mother...

... I know you had high hopes, but I can now confirm that spending lots of time creating our own entertainment in our hotel room while we were on holiday has NOT resulted in a miracle pregnancy, despite the fact that we were totally relaxed, I was ovulating and all other environmental factors were as near perfect as they could be. Crappy eggs and sperm are crappy eggs and sperm however relaxed you are.

If AF arrives after noon, my clinic counts CD1 as the following day, so as AF turned up yesterday afternoon, today is CD1. I rang the clinic yesterday and spoke to Nurse Perfect, who booked me in for my baseline scan tomorrow morning. I'm hoping that in 24 hours I'll be germ-free, cyst-free and able to make a start on ICSI #2.

Wish me luck...

  3. I know, it stinks! All the advise you get and the silly little hope it gives in spite of knowing better... I'm pinning my hope on your ICSI, they actually have a HUGE chance of working :-)

  5. I HATE the stupid "relax" advice everyone gives. It doesn't matter how relaxed you are if you have a legitimate infertility problem. Ugh.

    I am glad, however, to hear that it's CD1 and you get to start a new cycle!! Best of luck, you know I am rooting for you!

  7. Oh Hope Springs, THANK GOD I'll have another drug crazed lady to converse with. I feel like i'm going mental here! Looking forward to you joining me as a cycle buddy!
    PS - Parents say the darndest things. My mum said to me (when I told her we were doing IVF for the third time) "Well i hope they get it right this time, they shouldnt keep wasting your money if they don't know what they are doing". Not sure why she can't comprehend that the fact that my eggs are crap is not my clinics fault.
