OMG ladies, I was in bed when I was just checking in with you guys on the iPhone and I absolutely had to reply.
IMHO – WEIGHT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH TTC. I don’t care who says it, what the research says, what education the person has, no FS in the world will ever convince me otherwise. This is bullsh!t. Please explain how an embryo can implant in an overweight lady naturally but we doing IVF have to be thinner?? No way, hose A. I was actually thinking of this before I read your replies and if my new FS is going to go down that path I’m walkin out the door girlfriend. I’m just so angry (not with any of you) but at the thought that weight is a factor in TTC, because it’s not. There’s even a thread here on BH about overweight pregnant ladies, WTF, what do FS’s say about that huh? Another example is Chrissie Swan (you’ve probably seen her on TV), as lovely as she is, she is not thin and has had not 1 but 2 healthy pregnancies, I’d love to know her BMI. Out of spite, I ‘m going to bring in Maccas the next time I’m going to WFC and devour it in front of everyone in the waiting area. Grrrrrrr
Ewawa – welcome to WFC, I’m sorry you’re here but I’m sure you’ll find this is a great support for you whilst on the IVF rollercoaster, these ladies are awesome. You’re absolutely right, there are a few Drs to choose from, that’s one of the things I love about WFC, as I’m currently changing to my 3rd Dr (I obviously have commitment issues). By the sounds of things Dr Smith and Dr Fong are really good. I was with Dr Tong and Dr Melhem, who are also good but for me I’m looking for a Dr who is going to be more proactive in finding answers for me, not just sending me for cycle after cycle. I’m going to see Dr Cerez-Magnaye, mainly because her location is so convenient for me (probably not the best reason, but I do have to consider it with working and taking time off for appointments). Good luck with everything, fingers crossed your journey is short and sweet
Crofty – hope you’re well. I think of you every time I go to Westpoint and pick up another bottle of DHEA, you were so sweet to let me know about it. I’d never even heard of a compounding chemist let alone where to find one. Thank you so so much for the feedback about Dr C-M, that is very reassuring. I have an appointment with her on 30 Aug so hopefully all goes well and I get a good feeling about her. Are you planning on doing another cycle?
Mrsjag – oh no, the flu, it’s nice that your DH is a loving, giving man, but the flu, he could have kept that to himself thank you very much. I know it’s a worry, but I’m confident it shouldn’t impact on implantation. Rest up and take care of yourself
Sharlein – so sorry to hear you’re freaking out, but as Lilly said not everyone gets symptoms when they get their BFP, I’m hoping all is well inside and your emby is finding a nice place to snuggle in. If you’re having Mr Grey withdrawals maybe you should watch a movie with heaps of eye candy, anything with Channing Tatum, Ryan Gosling, etc should do the trick
Lilly – I think I’ll stick to this new Dr. I also have my appointment with my current FS too, but hopefully I can cancel it if everything goes well with the new FS. Yayyyy, EPU on Friday, that has come around quick (well, to me, seems like the other day you started jabbing) I’m so excited for you, good luck, hope all goes well. Yayy for the trigger injection too
Jems – I always try and look into things as a sign, so maybe you’re right about the new FS. I didn’t like that dream you had though, not true hun, I really want it to work for you (and all of us of course), you were probably just nervous. I cracked up when you made DH BD with a bad back, what a trooper he is. I hope you can lose those 5 kilos, I know it’s hard though, my weight is not the best, I’m scared to know what my BMI is. My DH has lost some weight by having diet shakes for lunch and walking, he’s not doing anything too strenuous and it’s helping him. I wish there were answers as to why embryo’s don’t stick, that’s seems to be my biggest problem ( after egg and sperm quality)
Jeannie – it still may be a bit early to POAS, so you just never know. I have silent hope that your disappointing ET will turn into a beautiful BFP, but I can understand how you’re feeling. Can you continue with the progesterone support until you POAS, what if it is a BFP? When are you testing? If it hasn’t worked, taking a break is a great idea, can’t hurt that’s for sure
Hello other WFC chicks
OK, I better go before DH falls asleep
