Wow, what a busy thread this has been!
jfblady72, I hope that DHEA is doing its magic on your eggs - bugger about the side-effects though.
MrsDaisyP, all these tests are very stressful, even when it all turns out okay (as I am sure yours will.) Better though to have all these things cleared up before you start IVF, to make sure you are in the best possible position. Hope that all the results are clear and you are good to start cycling soon,
Starfish, Ahhhh the good old "Hurry Up and Wait" IVF routine! It drives us all nutty, doesn't it??? I hope that it is giving your ovaries time to brew up lots of lovely golden eggs - bubs and spares!
Slinky, DH and I have done the last minute dash to the clinic for IUI - its crazy, isn't it? I don't see why this one doesn't have as much chance as possible - you just never know. Two eggs has got to be a better chance than one! I hope you were still able to head away for the weekend and relax. Will be keeping my fingers crossed for you that this one is the one
Pink, my heart broke to read of all you have been through with your reaction to the anaesthetic and then to have no embryos to show for it. This IVF is a heartbreaking business. I had a similar physical reaction to my laparoscopy and it took quite a while for me to get my body back on track, take care of yourself and rest, and give yourself time to heal. Thinking of you
Millie, you are such a determined IVF warrior, I am hoping and praying that what you are going through will be worth it and that you will get your golden eggs at the end of the process 3 months is a long time to wait, but I hope it will fly by and that those lovely young eggs give you a BFP first go.
Sabah, hope you aren't going too in the 2WW. Sending you lots of sticky babydust
Mum4Nay, hooray for being able to do a short cycle! After your last cancelled downreg, you must be pleased. Thinking of you
DrMummy, so great to hear from you and that bubs is going well.
Spot, you have been through so much, this is hideous. I hope the neurologist is able to give you some reassuring answers. Re IVF, you have had pretty much every possible IVF outcome - surely this time is the time you will get a sticky BFP with a beautiful bubs at the end I'm going to keep everything crossed that this time is your time.
AFM Its been a pretty crazy few days. Saturday morning woke up feeling good, jumped in the shower and .... blood. Bled all morning, mostly brown, so I could think maybe it was okay and then it went red and heavy (sorry TMI). SO very not good. 41 days since my last period, and only 4 days short of my scheduled scan. Then the bleeding stopped on Sunday. I rang the FS totally despondent and asking if there was anything I could do (nothing was the answer) and obviously she said this isn't good, and she'll get me in for an early scan. Anyway, scan today showed a blob ... with a heartbeat!!! I was stunned - totally prepared that it was all over, and trying emotionally to face the prospect of more IVF. Anyway, FS thinks the bleeding might have been the other embryo we implanted coming away for whatever reason (we transferred two embryos this time around) but bubs today was the right size and heartbeat looked good. FS not happy that I have started bleeding lightly again (even though its brown again) and has booked me in for another scan in 10 days. Just hoping and praying that this bubs stays with us for the long run
