Good morning ladies!!! Well i did my first POAS and i got a BFP!!!! I also had a BT and my hcg was 490 which is meant to be good. I can't believe it! I was totally preparing myself for a a BFN because it was my first ET... People said to me that i was doing silly things, like after the ET my DH and I welcomed the embie by drawing pictures on my belly, i also did visual relaxations 2 times a day that i bought off Kerri. I also did a hypno session with one of my friends mums. apparently there are studies that say that hypno and acupuncture both positivly help with IVF. I don't care what others think, i was willing to give everything a go to make sure that it was going to work. I also changed my diet, and ate food that my body was kind of sensative to. This was advice from Kerri.
But in saying that, i know i have still have a long way to go, as all of my mums pregnacies were high risk and she nearly lost my sister in the last trimester. Anyway enough about me...
Welcome Amps! Sounds like a great idea to meet, i can do most days around lunch time as i work Mon- Fri
Im sorry to hear about your BFN the other day. I have also heard lots of good things about CFC thats awesome news that they work around your cycle! and good luck with your next stim cycle in April!
Bellavista and Shazzymoo: I can't believe that about QFG that you have to work your cycle around their days!!! crazy!!! how in the world is that meant to work??? I can't believe that they put that kind of pressure and stress on people when they are already going through so much. So does that mean that if your cycle doesn't fall into their days that they do the ET, you have to do a stim cycle even though you have frosties?? If thats what that means, i understand why people move across to CFC
Shazzymoo: good luck coming to Cairns, hopefully the rain won't block the road for you
Sunny15: I totally agree with you about the pessaries they are horrible!
that is fantastic news about the donor eggs!!! have you heard how they went with the thawing and fertilazation? Good luck on Monday!!!I totally love the acupuncture except on the day of the ET!! But it is meant to work!!! Kerri also told me to keep my feet warm during the ET and after because if they are cold ( i have poor circulation) they cause the uterus to contract. I was getting the ET with socks on, the FS and FN all laughed at me but once again... whatever helps. i also wore my ugg boots around home after the ET, even though my feet were sweating like anything!
Well i hope everyone has a relaxing wet weekend!!!
