    Hi

    Sorry in advance, this is a bit of a me post.

    I picked up my meds today and I feel totally overwhelmed. There is just so much more than my first cycle that was just a basic stim cycle. This one is down reg + Colorado protocol + Natural Killer cell stuff.

    I was so excited and now I'm just freaking out, and feel sad that I have to go through this.

    Have any of you had this same reaction? I hope I will get over it and start to feel excited again.

    How bad did you find the side effects on all these meds?

    MrsErinR - I know what you mean about being overwhelmed with all the drugs!! We are like pill popping machines. One of my friends actually asked what I needed to do for my cycle the other day, I think she almost fell off her chair when I outlined the drug regime - that was even before getting to the pessaries

    Luckily apart from the prednisolone I don't think the others add to the side effects. I try to inject and take all mine first thing so I don't have to worry about it for the rest of the day.
    Good Luck it's amazing what becomes normal after a while

    Default High Natural Killer Cells

    Hahaha- Bella we probably walked into each other when I walked in and you walked out! My appt was at 3.45 bit didn't get to see Dr M until 4.50!!! Running very late today however I must have not seen you as your belly would be poking out now!!!! How ru???

    So i am on a train ride home (uuuggghhh I know I hate trains!!!) but didn't think I'd be this late out - the BTs came back that I Showed positive for imbalance of NK cells and t- regulatory cells and combine with mild MYFHR this can be a factor of implantation failure and an immune issue, so wil be booked in for boost around 11 feb at the day surgery in auburn to get me ready for my next ivf cycle in feb/march (as ill have a long down reg which is about 6 weeks)- sure this makes a lot more sense to you all than it does to me!!!! Hahaa

    I'm good thank you! A lady just sat down as I was paying - she had long fair hair, a bit wavy/curly I think- was that you? I was only his 2nd appt for the afternoon at 2.15 and I didn't get in til after 3! He arrived at 2.30!!

    Glad your BTs showed something at least! It felt reassuring to me when I knew my levels weren't right, something could be done about it. What procedure are you booked for? I haven't heard of a boost.

    Dr M told me my cd 4 & 8 are doing something they shouldn't and I need an intralipid top up so we booked that for 2/2. I have weaned off pessaries and am down to 15mg of pred. Hopefully be able to stop them around 22wks. Currently 17+1 and feeling great.

    Hi everyone else, hope you're all well

    April - do you have BT tomorrow? Good luck, still got my fingers crossed for you that your hpt was wrong.

    Hi Bella and Crofty - I was there this afternoon too! 4.30 appointment and we didn't get in to see Dr M until about 6.15!!

    Got all my blood requests from him including Chicago, so will do all that early next week, so I might hopefully have some answers in a few weeks. I'll have to read back in this thread about coordinating with the courier. Thanks for the tips.

    Also do you have any advice on the follow up appointment? Do you wait for your bloods to come back and then make one, or should I try and make an appointment now? Thanks.

    Hi jones76.

    I'd make your next appt ASAP as he is often booked out 6 weeks in advance these days as word is really getting out about him. I never had the Chicago bloods done so can't help you on that one. Gwyneth should be able to tell you when all your results will come in and can make your appt to suit
