    Default Dr Warren De Ambrosis - Wazza appreciation thread

    @mummymaybe - oh no Is the Synarel making you nauseous? I was taking a lot of supplements before starting with Wazza but yeah, it sure is something! I call them all "desert" lol. I even resigned to buying a Nanna-vitamin-holder....jumbo-size!!! Ha ha ha. I get super full from all of the water I need to swallow them all, and that's that I'm a big water drinker as it is.

    Here's my belly so-far in its bloated/bruised glory....just a couple of days into Clexane....and they're actually ouchy-bruises too which I didn't expect! The needles aren't as bad as what I've read....seem pretty sharp to me? The actual Clexane stings a little....

    The only thing making me feel crook is my silly Metformin for my PCOS....it's my fault as I always get slack with it after a loss and then I have to start all over again with the side-affects and building up a tolerance....hate the stuff!

    I go for my first scan on CD14 which is next Monday the 24th....hopefully I'll be ready to get my 5 day emby transferred on the Friday or Saturday next week?? Depends if my body has behaved I guess?

    You're on the count down and will be in the thick of your cycle before you know it Hope you've felt better today x

    Oh yes clexane is a killer! The worst comes when you have no tummy left without bruises so you have to inject into a bruise - ouch! Once we got our bfp I had to buy maternity pants the second my pants started getting tight because the waist band would press on the bruises! They can take a while to go away too - 2 weeks after I stopped taking them I was commenting to dh about how faded they were, only to go to my 12 week scan and have the woman scanning me say in a really accusing tone "what are all these bruises on your stomach???" I could still see faint marks at 20 weeks. It's worth it in the end though so stick with it! I think it was the clexane that made the difference for me.

    I managed to get hardly any bruising from clexane. My technique was to numb it down with an ice pack then grad the tiniest pinch of skin and inject. With grabbing a big chunk of fat/skin I found I bruised more and it took blimmin ages to get the needle in! Maybe cos they're pretty blunt

    Thanks! Yep another reason I count my blessings that wazza was in charge. We had planned to transfer 2 but on the day of transfer the scientist said we only had one because the second embryo was "on its way out" and "wasn't going to make it", but wazza told them to put both back anyway and turns out they both stuck!

    @Ladydee, you poor thing. I used to teach patients how to give clexane in my old job and never found a way to always avoid the bruises.

    I think it's the Syneral making me nauseated because it's worse at night which is when I have the higher dose. The Diabex hasn't been a real issue for me which is a small blessing.

    I couldn't find a pill box big enough so resorted to this for our recent holiday, then I was silly enough to put them in my carry on and have to explain myself to airport security. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1416255864.103524.jpg

    @LittleDove - I've read lots of people along the years complain about the blunt needles with the Clexane but I've honestly not found them bad at all?! I can hardly feel the needle go in but once I start injecting, the Clexane really stings!! Thanks, I'll give your method a go tomorrow morning, hopefully it does the trick!

    Wow @phee83, that's so awesome that they both stuck....you guys must've been in such shock when you found out!

    @mummymaybe - oh no about going through the airport, I never thought about that! I got a good jumbo pill box at Chemist Warehouse....not sure if you've got them where you live?? Then I got a smaller one for my morning ones....

    Hi ladies, hope everyone is tracking well TTC or in their pregnancies
    @Melbutterly - hi Hun, just wondering how you're doing and where you're at? Any luck with any cancelation appointments with Warren?? Have you rang them to ask again yet? Are you squeezing in another cycle this year? Xx
    @me+he&she=three - how are you tracking with your cycle? Are you keeping up with all of your sups and meds?? It's like a second dinner huh?! I've only forgotten one pessary so far which my DH had to drop off at work for me but am keeping up with it all apart from that Best of luck
    @mummymaybe - you'd be up to stimming now wouldn't you? How's it all going? Has the nausea settled down? How's your Clexane belly holding up.....the trainer becomes the trainee now huh? Lol I think the last couple of jabs I've done might not bruise-up....just a red spot around the injection site.....maybe my body is getting used to it. Have you had any scans yet or when are they scheduled for? Good luck with it all!

    AFM - Lining looked good at 8/9/10mm on Monday so I'm all booked in for my FET on Sat with acupuncture booked in before and after. I could honestly care less but, you won't be catching me in a bikini this summer....lol.....

    Hey Ladydee, thanks for asking. I have not had any luck getting in to Warren but I did have an appointment with Glen Sterling at Life Fertility.
    He does not think I need to look at donor eggs yet and said 39 year olds get pregnant all the time! You are still getting eggs that convert to embryos. He does think I need to have a laparoscopy though to make sure there are no underlying issues preventing pregnancy and thinks there is no point in doing another round of IVF until this has been done. He would also look at different drug protocol for next cycle and would only do a blastocyst transfer (previously they have done 3 day transfers)
    He said that he and Warren often discuss options for patients even though they are at different clinics and he could call him any time to discuss my case. I thought that was good and he said at the end of the day it's not about Warren or himself but about doing all they can to get me my baby. I quite liked him and the fact he was confident he could help me. Thinking................
