Good luck today Sariele xx Thinking of you!
Im just back from follie scan, left ovary playing naughty as usual (only seen on trans abdo scan) - 6 small follies. Right ovary played nice, not quite sure how many on that side, maybe 6 or 8, all diff sizes. Biggest is 16 or 17 mm. So looks like EPU on Wed 6/6.
Sonographer used this new 3d probe, very funky!
Calculated volumes of follies and ovary automatically!
Re the questions about sex before EPU and ET. Ive not been told anything about it before ET, but yes on night of trigger, cause then its within the 2-3 day window for the spermies to be fresh and behaving (if your partner has behaving sperm - mine doesnt !!)
My last clinic was quite directive about when to have sex and when not to, i.e. not after ET until beta HCG, but the new clinic says its fine. Just dont do any heavy lifting for a while or anything that raises your body temp significantly, so no relaxing baths etc!
Take care girlies - everyone!
Im off to do some actual work (report due) and to incubate my eggs for EPU a bit more LOL
Hi all. May I join this group?
I'm currently doing first ever IVF cycle and had EPU today! Currently lying in my bed waiting patiently (not) for 12 when I can take more panadol!!!
Congratulations to all the BFP's! Such exciting news!
Yeah, she mentioned biochemical... What does that mean?
She said its probably just a biochemical pregnancy and the numbers will just go down over the next few days (most likely outcome).
I had orgalutan as my trigger shot and that was 18 days before the test...
Just in case it magically starts doubling I'm going to POAS starting Sunday. Can not wait till Thursday for the BT!
Thanks to everyone for your kind words and support, I really appreciate it. It's been a very difficult 24 hours. Still waiting for our specialist to call us and explain some things, his receptionist wouldn't even let us make an appointment today. Trying to stay strong but think we need some time to digest it all.
Goodlck to everyone else and congrats to the girls with the BFPs.
i had ER yesterday and we got 19 eggs and we got a msg today saying 15 fertilized wow!!
ET is tuesday 5th fx
good luck ladys
Just a quick update - just got home from ET and we had 2 embryos - one at 8 cells and one at 9 cells transferred. Also had a pregnyl shot prior to transfer. Very excited to now be in the two week wait once again.
If any of you are updating the role call, pls move me to TWW - BT on 14th June - thank you : )
Love and prayers and baby dust to everyone xx
To all those who have BFP congrats I'm so happy for u all
To all those with BFN I know there is nothing I can say to make u feel better but I would like to say that this process can b sh!t when it doesn't work.
At the moment I'm in the 2ww - due for my AF on Sun & BT Wed - I just went 2 ta loo & some of the cream that came out was light pink (sorry TMI) - I am at work & trying not 2 cry - the only thing i am holding onto right now is that my (.)(.)'s r still sore & I know that when they stop hurting I get my AF.
I just wish i could go & have a blood test now & find out wot is going on - doesn't help being juiced up on all these hormones!!! sorry just needed to rank as DH not available till 2moro. sorry
