Or, for the uninitiated, Pregnant Until Proven Otherwise :)

Transfer was relaxed and painless, all over in about five minutes... Needless to say, Kylie and I spent the hours leading up to the transfer trying to find things to do that would make us stop thinking about the, um, transfer :) Didn't work much, we were nervous all the same! Anyway, it's all over now and the waiting game begins. Or, rather, continues :D

So, sticky thoughts from all directions please! We have our first test on Monday, then another on Wednesday. I know myself enough to understand that I won't be able to resist and will probably test on Sunday, even though the chance of getting a positive is minuscule.

In unrelated news, I spent the last four days trying to remember where I lost my wallet, or trying to work out if it indeed was stolen. In the end, yesterday before the transfer Kylie took me to get a new license and I called to get a new credit card, bank card, and medicare card, only to have Ben emerge victoriously from under the dining table this morning clutching the said wallet... little bugger must have taken it there to play with it!! Aaaaargh!!!! Anyway, breathe, breathe, don't strangle the boy...

Will update when I have news.

D Day...


Positive thoughts, positive thoughts, positive thoughts...

Wednesday, 21 September 2011


is next Thursday!!! Hurray, finally!

Damien has just given me the Ovidrel shot, and I have to say that it was a much more pleasant experience than when the nurse did it last time. Not sure about exact timing yet, I'm supposed to give the clinic a call on Friday to find out about our time slot.

Also, Kylie is coming down to Canberra this Sunday and staying until the transfer - yay for that!

We're on the move again - positive thoughts, positive thoughts, positive thoughts...

Close, but not quite there yet

Had a blood test on Saturday and then today as well. Instructions: another blood test and an ultrasound on Wednesday.

I think the dreaded Ovidrel shot is coming up pretty darn soon - at least this time Damien is here to give it to me! I estimate that transfer will be happening early next week. But then, what do I know? Waiting game...

Edit: Now that I'm thinking about it, it's probably going to be mid to late next week... Oh well, hopefully more news tomorrow.

It is happening!

Today is day 4 of a new cycle. I'm going in for the first blood test on Saturday. Based on the timeline from the last cycle, when transfer happened on day 18, D-day is probably about two weeks away...

Can't believe we're on the road again!

All clear

Finally! Test yesterday shows that hCG is still normal, so we have been given the all clear. Day 8 of my next cycle, which should be starting pretty soon, is the first blood test that will start off our second unmedicated FET cycle.

Wish us all luck!
