Had first FC appointment this week and our consultant says that it's highly unlikely we will get PG naturally and will need ICSI.

A lot to take in, mixed feelings galore! Happy that we have a plan but so sad that it won't happen naturally for us, angry that my body is crap and stressed about the whole idea of IVF!

Would really appreciate any advice, experiences and hand-holding smile

Just wanted to offer some thoughts hubby and I knew we'd struggle as I have pcos but when we were told that IVF was probably the only way to have a baby we were gutted (especially as this was after clomid and injections and a lap and dye with drilling) we had one cycle of IVF which failed and although it was hard we knew we wanted a baby we went for ICSI last September and it worked we now have a beautiful nearly 5 month old as a result

It is hard and it is so important to stay strong and keep communicating with your partner but you will ultimately get through it all with beautiful babies

Good good!

We're you nervous about doing the deed, I was! Worried about catching stitches!

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 18-Oct-13 10:36:19

Yeah I'm ok. Got 6 week app through. Midd of nov.

Tummy button is fine tho scar lower in bikini line has finally closed - was weeping a bit and now have inch long obvious scar

Done the deed with dp grin but not holding out any hope as practically impossible for my to conceive sad

Bunnygirlie Thu 17-Oct-13 22:09:07

blonde how you getting on?

1 week on for me and taken the dressings off, yucky stitches look horrid! So worried about catching the wounds now they have no protection!

Bunnygirlie Mon 14-Oct-13 17:17:34

Fingers crossed that something works for us all very soon!!!

sad anroga - hope ivf works for you but sucks clomid didnt

Hi Blondes and Bunnygirl

Not that it worked for me but the nurse even told me that after I had my hysterosalpingogram upto 3 months after the procedure your likelyhood of getting pregnant is more, its the flushing out of the tubes!

I got my AF yesterday so that was my last cycle of clomid, IVF is the next step for us too.

Bunnygirlie Sat 12-Oct-13 17:18:03

That's what I was told too! Hoping to feel up to it next weekend for my fertile week grin

Have fun!!!

Blondeshavemorefun Sat 12-Oct-13 17:13:51

im still waiting for my 6 week check up app, and been 2 weeks, ie need it in the post for the next month or so

tmi but gonna have serious shagging tom/mon/tue as that's my fertile period and although have been told wont conceive without ivf, I have heard the month after a lap/dye that many people do get preg

maybe the flushing of tubes etc helps ......

if not then lucky dp smile

Bunnygirlie Sat 12-Oct-13 10:09:06

Thanks! smile

Here's praying that it does the job wink

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 11-Oct-13 20:29:03

thats fab news - really pleased for you smile

Bunnygirlie Fri 11-Oct-13 18:21:41

Thanks mrs just had a shower and changed my dressings, yucky stitches!

Will try a mint tea now smile

That is really positive news Bunny. Have a nice brew of mint tea to celebrate.

Bunnygirlie Fri 11-Oct-13 17:31:34

Doctor said my tubes are fine, cleared away some endo and unstuck one ovary. She says I may be more fertile for a few months but still on ivf list.

Now I have to think positive!

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 11-Oct-13 16:46:52

what did op show? good/bad news?

the gas will subside (or with me it did) but as i said the lower cut was the worst for me

Bunnygirlie Fri 11-Oct-13 15:43:32

Still sore and very swollen tum from the gas but guess that will improve in a few days.

Just a very weird experience as never had a general before!

Thanks for asking smile

DF has teen ICSI twins and two younger DCs one ICI and one naturally conceived after more than 10 years of not being careful.

Blondeshavemorefun Fri 11-Oct-13 09:38:37

Bless ya bunny. Why weird and hope all went well and no bad news

Take it easy and rem no bending down

Played crazy golf at weekend with dp and bending to get the ball out I the hole did twinge a bit even after 10days - so made dp keep getting the ball grin

How are you doing Bunny? Not too uncomfy, I hope.

Bunnygirlie Thu 10-Oct-13 18:37:01
