Slinky, great to hear from you Fabulous that all is progressing well with baking your beautiful DD. Good luck with the pack up and the big move. I'm sorry we didn't get the opportunity to catch up in Canberra (We are coming down in early Sept as luck would have it!). Please stay in touch and keep us informed.
Swede, all the best for your scan!
Melk, lovely news on team blue
PinkB, hope all is going well with Isabella
Fiona, lovely to read how enamored you are with Indy.
Mum4nay, lovely to meet and have a cuddle with your little beefcake recently. he certainly is divine! You have certainly made another family deliriously happy with your generous gift.
Millie, August 24th is my sister's b'day a very special date indeed to meet Little Miss!
Nessie, so glad you did start this thread, thank you! There really is a very special group of women who have been drawn here and I feel so fortunate to have been the recipient of so much love and support on the 35+ thread over quite a long period of time. We are going away mid September. Have decided on Sulawesi in Indonesia. Very much looking forward to the break.
3 weeks till Wazza! I heard he is no longer retiring, is that true?
AFM, apologies for the radio silence have fallen into a bit of a black hole since last week. Cycle was cancelled as expected. I threw everything at it and unfortunately nothing worked. FS was great, rang me herself to discuss the situation and she started me on Trental (another medication to improve blood flow) for a couple of months and low dose E2 patches continuously. My AS guru however feels the lining issues are outside the norm of what he would expect and emailed to say that unfortunately he feels I have no option but to have yet another hysteroscopy to see what is going on. Gutted
I am meeting with Prof V on August 14th to discuss what he suspects is lurking inside (?the return of the scarring) and will probably proceed with a final surgery and with the hope for a transfer before the end of the year. If the lining doesn't get it together after this surgery then I feel I have exhausted all options for carrying the baby myself (and I will have endured 4 surgeries this year alone to address the scarring). I don't think I can give it any more than that nor can we keep throwing $$ into a bottomless pit.
Making it harder is that I feel a lot of responsibility towards these beautiful chances at life sitting in the freezer, and without their presence it would be easier to start the process of moving on with life without baby. I think also weighing heavily on my mind this week is I finally sent my letter to the CEO of my former clinic (cc'ed to previous FS) outlining all of my concerns re: the circumstances which led to me acquiring AS and the mismanagement of the symptoms over such a long period of time. Will be interesting to see what response I get!
