Sorry to hear about your cancelled cycles Strawbs and Marttc.
Sophie - Welcome! Given what you are doing for your friend you definitely fit in perfectly here. It's probably only women with fertility issues who truly understand how special you are
AFM - US Monday and natural FET next Monday after that. But I've had AF now for 7 days and still quite heavy. Anyone had anything like this when previous AF has been no longer than 4 days? I'm on no meds at all but I am on supplements. Hopefully my uterus is doing a late spring clean to start fresh in 2013!
Kheeki - I found during cycles with any hormone drugs my body cod do weird things, even sometimes after being in drugs - I assumed my body was just messy but to be honest the longest period I had was after my miscarriage... I really just log all this stuff & ask my specialist when I see her
MARTTC, absolutely, everyone should have a chance to have their own bub . They also make it sound like its just so easy to adopt or surrogacy, everything is such a long road . Best wishes to you in your journey
this was our last FE..number 9! The rest of. The rest of the batch didn't even make transfer sadly...plan c is a new doner and a fresh cycle. My IM has battled infertility for 15 years so this is really her last hope. I am learning fast!
Good luck for your ultrasound on Monday Kheeki, I'm surprised they are doing it on a public holiday. I hope AF has left and you have a prefect fresh lining for you FET
Sopie- it's great that you have other options if this cycle fails, I really hope you don't have to use them. You are such a special person xx
Marttc how did you go with your trigger? I ended up triggering Tuesday night. I am not a fan of Crinone, it is possibly the most evil medication I have taken. I feel so tired and depressed, have constant cramps and I can't stop eating, I'll be 5kg heavier at the end of my tww the way I am going!
Thanks Strawbs. AF is still here so US will be interesting. Be very surprised if there's much of a lining. My clinic seems to open every day regardless of holidays. Hopefully I'll be in the TWW with you. No Crinone for me though but I find the depressive days are just as many even without it. Have you fallen pregnant naturally before?
WOW - you must feel the highs & lows too... They can really suck, I stay true to myself & feel what I need to at the time /day & then I try move on... It's hard but we are all here for the same reason & for me I try to think 'eyes on the prize'
Your friend could never express in words what you are putting yourself through for her!
DTD for 3 nights, 4th night failed there was too much pressure though I'm pretty sure I O'd Wednesday (trigger was Monday) my ovaries were going crazy & we DTD till Thursday night.... So now we wait. 3rd night of crinone & I forgot what it was like, I can't sleep, keep feeling like I need to pee, headache & feel nausea not to mention more snappy!
How did you go?
Good luck ladies! It is a lot of pressure for both of you to DTD four nights in a row. I don't think my DH would be able to do that. Yes, the progesterone! I don't miss that at all! But hopefully it will be worth it.
Good luck all!! Wow, I can imagine the pressure while DTD, naw. .
