Congrats jb2011 thats fantastic!
Thank you everyone.. still in shock and praying everything goes well over the next few weeks and into the next 8 mths!
Riss - I think we are on the same/similar meds with prednisilone and clexane - how long are you / did you take them for?
Also does Lynn do a print out of bubs at the 7 wk scan or at least let us take a photo of the screen?
Yes I just saw her Monday for my 7 week scan and she told me to stop clexane that day and start weaning off prednisolone. This was much earlier than last time which is better. I had bleeding in the first trimester until I stopped clexane at 11 weeks.
Yes she takes some pics of bub and the girls at the front desk put it in a little envelope thingo. Inside she wrote congratulations. Cute touch. But have to say again that her machines are grainy and need an upgrade. Good luck with your next BT and scan. Take it day by day xx
JB – congratulations on your BFP!! Such brilliant news! And you still have 6 frosty siblings, how awesome is that! Can I ask why Lynne did your transfer at day 3 rather than day 5? I love the picks of the POAS!
Riss – congratulations to you too on your 7 week scan and 5 frosty siblings!
Kelly – so glad to see you’re feeling a bit more positive now. Seeing Lynn and hearing about everyone else's successes certainly helps make you feel optimistic doesn't it. And when I feel like I always feel so much better. I’m also taking a break for a couple of months and plan on cycling in January. I’m hoping the melatonin helps with egg quality. I’ve been on DHEA almost 12 months but only on the melatonin since September. Maybe we can be cycle buddies!? You too Flemo!
JJTiger – how many weeks along are you? You must be just heading into your second trimester? Hope you are enjoying sharing your wonderful news with your family and friends.
Em – hope you’re doing ok xx
Sue – when are you cycling next?
Good wishes to everyone on their journeys the thread is flying along!
Smootch- were the last two pregnancies from frozen embryos! Congrats on no. 3! Amazing!
Williteverhappen - when you started taking melatonin were you really drowsy and tired?? I'm not sure if its all the stress I've been under or the fact that I have a cold or if its the melatonin but I'm sooooo sleepy! Yesterday I slept almost all day & night. What dose are you on? I'm on 4mg.
Just curious to see if its just me or its a combination of everything thats going on right now that's making it hard to stay awake!
And yes we could definitely be cycle buddies I'm likely to start around mid jan. am getting my fsh tested next period just to check if its still high. If it is then Lynn said there are also other things we can try to bring it down. Hopefully by jan my eggs will be in good shape and my fsh under 12
Melatonin puts you to sleep. It's the best! A good decent sleep is what they believe and Chinese medicine believe helps all your hormones reboot and in turn help egg quality. It's quite amazing how a naturally occurring chemical can help with fertility. Don't take it too early just half an hour before bedtime. I'm not too sure about being sleepy in the day. Didn't affect me that way. It was nice to be able to fall asleep quickly without thinking about all the ivf stuff. Wish I had it during the tww hehe
Good luck! I hope it's helping to get those eggs in tip top shape.
Thanks Riss. It s nice to go to sleep quickly and sleep well as after my cancelled cycle sleep eluded me & on top of everything else I was completely exhausted which wasn't good. It might just be that I have a cold that's making me so tired so ill just go with it as obviously my body needs it!
You're only taking one tab a bed right? I only say this as Lynn wrote my dosage down wrong the first time and said take 3 times a day! I wouldn't have been able to function.
