Jems – My FS doesn’t test for NK cells, not sure why, but I’m seeing a reproductive immunologist soon so I’ll get him to test for all that stuff. So sorry to read your weight loss frustration. As Mrsjag said a loss is still a loss, but I know you’ve put in a lot of effort and you’re not seeing the right results
Mrsjag – how have you been doing/feeling, has it sunk in yet? I’m sure you’re little jellybean is having fun inside, growing away. Do you have an estimated date of birth in April? I suppose you don’t have to go to WFC anymore, are you seeing an Ob/gyn?
Kylee – I totally understand taking a break from the hub, and by the look of things so do a lot of us, which is a little sad but necessary at times to regroup and focus on ourselves. How’s the weight loss going? I’m surprised you need to but if that’s what Dr Fong wants then do it. I am truly sad to hear you believe you are at the end of your journey. I know you are about to start your 9th cycle, hope AF arrives on time on Friday and then you will go again in October. I hope that this cycle is your lucky last.
Rosewhite – did you have your FET last Friday??? I hope you did and you’re PUPO by now . Hope all your fluid is gone now. I will check at my upcoming appointment if my FS saw any fluid when I had my surgery. If not, I’ll mention it the next time I have an ultrasound at WFC. I really want the fluid drained, regardless of whether or not it’s harmful, I don’t want it there.
Lilly – I also love to hear about your appointments with Dr Fong, you sound so positive. Wow, I’ve never had an FS call me, she sounds so involved with her patients. I’m going to see a reproductive immunologist soon so I’m not sure if I have any antibodies, or low B12, I can see more blood tests coming up, which is good but not so good with my bad veins. Glad your PCOS and other results came back fine. Have you started your antagonist cycle yet? Good luck.
Andrea – your cycle should start soon, I’m sure you’ll be an expert with injections, once you do the first one you’ll be fine. You can always practice on an orange or a teddy bear before you do your first one. In regards to your question about alcohol, no nurses or FS has ever said not to drink any (and let’s face it, how many girls drink alcohol not knowing they are pregnant, even some that do). Maybe a drink here or there may be harmless but if you can avoid it, it is probably recommended.
Jeannie – hope everything is going well with you
Sharlein – hope you’re doing well and getting prepared for your next cycle in November, it will be here before you know it!
Lynlee – how’s your antagonist cycle going, is EPU soon? Good luck with PICSI. In regards to DHEA it is good to help with egg quality, but hopefully this cycle works for you don’t need it. Did you manage to find an acupuncturist? I’ve also heard good things about Health Dimensions in Bella Vista (and they’re also in Windsor) http://www.healthdimensions.com.au/a/645.html
I hope I haven’t forgotten anyone, I’m so sorry if I have. Take care
