Wow Sydney actually got a little warmer over the weekend compared to what we have been having lately, it was lovely.
Quartz: Hope your feeling better hon , I took a break from BH after my MC as well, its easier to forget about it that way. Hope you have been enjoying your time out. We had all the genetic and Karotype testing done and from memory it cost about $1000 for both DH and I and unfortunately we got nothing back from Medicare. Enjoy your break, I must admit it has done me the world of good.
Feliciata: Woo hoo congrats on being PUPO darl, that’s awesome news. It sounds like you have got a good strong little emby on board now. So I am guessing you are going to start POAS shortly? So i will have to think of qosme questions for you to keep you busy in the TWW. i must admit its probably the one time in my IVF that i hate the most!!!!!
Pinkbutterfly: No my FS didn’t do the BT as he said the uterine one is more accurate. I would of liked to have both done but oh well, I am happy he has at least let me do the biopsy. He did make a comment while I was getting it done that he thinks we still have a good chance and it’s a numbers game and its just because the process is so artificial and he thinks I don’t have any big underlying issues blah blah blah. So that was good to hear, still doesn’t explain 4 failed cycles though. Hope your estrogen is starting to rise again for you now babe . It sucks that there is always something with IVF. When is your next BT and scan? Love your terminology – clapped out, you had me laughing hysterically with that one .
Starfish: All the best for your scan honey and so glad to hear your levels are starting to rise like that are supposed to be. My FS prefers to stim for longer as he believes it gives more eggs at the same quality. My issue seems to be doesn’t matter what dose I start out on the moment Orgalutran is added in my levels rise very quickly and I end up with 10 eggs all at different stages and quality. Will the extra days stimming impact on the PGD at all babe?
Lindylou: How’s your trip babe? I am guessing we haven’t heard from you for a few days because you have spent all your money on shopping and can’t afford to pay for internet use. Not long now till your biopsy and some more answers, read my experience below, it’s a breeze and its totally painless so nothing to worry about.
AFM: had biopsy on Friday morning, I took panadeine forte beforehand cause I was worried about the pain of the procedure. And it was perfectly fine, it didn’t hurt at all. My ET's never hurt either and it was pretty much the same thing. When the FS was actually collecting the specimen the feeling was a little like having ice pushed up high in your uterus (not that I have ever had that) but more like a numb kinda feel, but definitely not painful. One thing I was surprised at, I thought the specimen would have been blood (given its from your endomentrium which is made up of blood) but it was more like a yellow orange watery liquid. I asked the FS and a friend who had the same thing and they said it was normal. I have an appointment with FS on 7th June to get results and plan our next cycle. My AF is due tomorrow so I will skip this month (DH and I have decided to go to NZ for a weeks holiday before our next cycle) and then start long down reg next month around beginning of July. I must admit this weekend (2 months into our break) has been the first time I have really started to think about everything and got that feeling of desperation that I really WANT to have a baby. I think it was casue we caught up with 2 pregnant friends over the weekend and they both looked so happy and all we talked about was babies. I had been doing so well up until then too. Oh well its only a minor speed bump in my journey and I will get there eventually .
