    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................

    Sounding all very positive Melbutterly, a lap sounds like a very sensible idea also. Good luck with it all!

    Thanks for checking in @Ladydee. I have started stimming, gonal f and luveris. My nausea has settled some and I actually feel better today than I have in weeks. I have my first clexane bruise, this who ivf thing has really made me think about what I put my patients through.

    I catch up with Warren on Tuesday and I'm thinking EPU will be end of the week.

    Your tummy looks so sore, I truly hope all the pain is worth it. Good luck tomorrow.

    Hi mum of one so far, or now I should say three :-) Big congratulations.
    I read your story with interest as I also have seen another specialist and done numerous full cycles as well as the natural therapies stuff and acupuncture. I am on a cancellation list for Waz but don't have an appointment until next June so last week I saw Glen Sterling at Life Fertility. First step he thinks, is I should have a laparoscopy to determine if there are any underlying issues.

    Anyway I was very interested to read what you said about having success with the 6 eggs you had doing an IUI verses full IVF. I also have a low AMH (below 1) but have never done an IUI. I have not heard of other specialists taking this approach and just wondered what drugs you were on for the stimulation to get the six eggs? I am guessing it was more than just Clomid? Anyway, thanks for sharing and congratulations again on your new twins. Mel.

    Thanks @mummymaybe - glad you're feeling better and let me know how you get on with your scan.....hopefully there's a nice bit of action going on Do you know if there's anywhere else I can jab my Clexane by chance?? My FS who doesn't happen know about my Warren boosted cycle told me to finish my Clexane in a few days but Dr WDA definitely said to keep at it until a BFN or 12 weeks of pregnancy......if all goes well, I realised today that he'll see my bruises as he's my Ob! Ahhhhh, this is all a bit stressful with two FS!!

    AFM - thoroughly enjoyed my acupuncture before and after my FET today and it all went nice and smoothly. I've fallen pregnant the last 4 times I've tried to so I wouldn't like to know what the odds are that I'll be that lucky again BUT if I do....pleeeeeeeease be a super-sticky one!!!

    Here's my blasty-bubsicle while it was still defrosting and expanding so, not as pretty as my freshie was but I was told it was just as good.....

    @Ladydee, congratulations on being PUPO. You can give you clexane in your thigh, might be a little more painful but not as bad as going through a bruise. Just divide your upper leg into quarters and use the top outer one ( nearest your hip).

    AFM, the big clexane bruises are pretty sore and I'm a bit tired but otherwise feeling pretty ok. I really hope this works.

    CD 11 today. Scan showed 15 follicles 7.5-10mm and 7.9mm lining so all looking good. I am totally exhausted, I'm tired from the minute I wake up and struggling to get anything done. 5 injections a day is taking it's toll, my entire stomach is bruised and sore. I'm really finding this cycle much harder than any others I've done.

    All sounding good to me! What CD did you start stimming? How is this comparing to your previous cycles? I was verrrrrry exhausted during my stim too (I got 13 mature eggs, 13 fertilised and 10 emby's...1 fresh, 9 frozen). I think it does take a lot out of you so it sucks that you're feeling like that but *hopefully* it's for a good reason and your growing a heap of quality eggies Wowzers, 5 injections per day?! Are they all for IVF or are you battling other medical issues also? Your poor belly, that sure is a lot. Do any of them bruise up as bad as the Clexane? That'd be twice as bad if so! Try to sneak in a few Nanna-naps wherever you can.....your pill box makes you qualify for a few of them, guilt free! When are your next bloods and/or scan? Take care xx
