    Micca that is fantastic news! Woohoo!
    Sunny - how interesting to hear about your second opinion. Good on you!! Glad to have you back
    Tens - Im thinking about another cycle mid october. How are you going with the old vitamin and supplements? Which ones are you on?
    Fortitude - how are you finding your yin yang doc? I know they are supposed to be calming but I have found it depends on the doc. Is it expensive?
    Net - good to hear from you. Im taking vitamin D also. I was told that my vitamin D was so low at one point last year that it would have made me infertile. Incredibly FS's dont seem to check these sorts of things.
    Fingers - how are you going? Thinking of you and your partner.

    AFM - Well my FS is away on holidays until mid October. I put on a few kgs last cycle which I am trying to work off. I am still taking my green drink and supplements etc. DH is taking his. We are also going to get a second opinion with another FS - the head of the current clinic we are with - as even though we like our FS I think he may be a bit too conservative. At this point i want the kitchen sink approach as everyone else has mentioned. I am hoping we can start again mid October or November.

    btw - I went to my integrative dr and I was supposed to have acupuncture but she ended up going thru my vitamin and supplement routine in such detail, along with a few other things that we had to reschedule the acupuncture. One thing I can share with everyone (and I am guessing a lot of people may know this) is that if you are taking fats such as vit D, vit E, Evening primrose oil and fish oil, etc its better to take them all together as fats will absorb better that way. She also said that magnesium, chromium can be taken together but to take the zinc at least an hour later and to take these at night as they aid sleep. Better to take almost everything else in the morning after breakfast.

    Hey wannabe- The Chinese Medicine Dr I am seeing just charged me $85 for first consult. It was for an hour- where we discussed medical IVF history, she asked questions to work out my yin/yang levels, then she did some acupunture. After that we discussed diet for IVF- and she wrote me a list of Yin food to eat until EPU then Yang foods for after transfer. Not 100% sure when to swap from Yin to Yang- will ask her Friday. Follow ups are cheaper cause you buy 5 for $325 ($65 per session). She will also talk about herbs etc with me (and if you get the 5 session package herbs are cheaper). She said she won't recommend any herbs during IVF drug treatment. Perhaps she'll suggest some after transfer- does anyone know if that would help? I will ask. So the price seemed alright to me- especially if it helps at all.

    Oh And BTW- Pineapple is a big thing they talk about to help implantation on some sites- BUT it's on the Yin list and not recommended -go figure.

    The bonus was she was recommended by another professional- I had no idea where to go. Her clinic is about 3 minutes walk from my Fertility Clinic.

    fortitude... great news ... I take a herbal sticky mix from my chinese medicine lady whom specialises in fertility... I think it is high in false unicorn root and she also advises me to take deer velvet in the luteal phase as it strengthens the progesterons....
    I found that when I stick to a diet to strengthen my deficiencies which tend to be spleen and kidney I feel much better...

    wanabe.. interesting about the vitamins... I take my magnesium at night and all my oils together...
    Im so glad that you have got some good support herbally
    I hope that your second opinion works out well..I cant wait to hear about it... and if there are any changes... I think that at our age we deserve the kitchen sink approach since we dont have the time to **** around finding what works.

    not much to report... waiting for AF ..should arrive monday... and then start stims on tuesday. The saizen has started so I am nearly on my way..... I think I have put a few kg on already from the prednisone munchies... much more biscuits and chocolate than I usually eat... but Im hoping that this is related to the pill I was on and it is a lot of water weight... I must say I have not been as ravenous today as I was...
    anyway I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend...Im enjoying our public holiday monday...so nice to have a 2 day work week....

    LOL Micca- I seriously am a Junkie ATM- the drugs take up most of a shelf in my fridge and just getting all the doses dialled up (and in the case of pregnyl made up) it took me 10 minutes and 4 needles!! OMG Need my own shooting gallery...

    10s- you sound like you're on HEAPS of vitamins!! Yeah!

    wannabe- what does your Chinese Med Dr say/ do?

    Feeling very up about this cycle.
