    That still sounds like good levels of both to me jaandaw. Yay for everything measuring correctly and still having a heartbeat 🙏 my progesterone is 68 this week, it has also been dropping a bit every week but has slowed down a bit now and dr said its ok. I'm on 3 pessaries too But have not heard of doing rectally? Mine are vaginally.

    So Nurses advised DP to do them rectally as it absorbs better?!? And to be honest we did actually see levels increase when she started doing them that way. In addition to that, DP was using 3 x Crinone and 3 x Pessaries so a bit hard to be using all that vaginally!!!

    I was told to do my pessaries rectally to reduce the risk of infection... Gross but you gotta do what you gotta do

    I was told I could do them rectally, nothing mentioned about infection though? However when I do them rectally it's like a suppository and makes me want to poop!!! (Jeez this convo is getting really gross lol😂) I was told crinone is better to do rectally as I was having issues with it getting stuck the front way and built up like paper mâché!! It was horrible! So FS said, well if you put it up back passage it will all come out in the wash! But eventhough I have boxes of crinone left over I just choose not to use it as I hate the stuff. When I go back to work next week I will probably use again though as you don't have to lie down for it. Here's another TMI for you - when I'm constipated a crinone up the butt works wonders!!😂

    I must be losing the plot, just looked at my previous long post and I did write to you guys!! I am getting serious baby brain (like seriously I have to dole out each dose of tablets into a container before I start taking them as half way through I can't remember what I took, even my hubby is noticing!) so it's not an old wives tale ...yes I will check out your diary Simpson, when I can handle this bloody screen again, headache & nausea city atm...I've written a bigger ranty post about diet experiences which will post when up to it.

    Flowers - yeah it's just the pineapple core I heard too, although didn't know about other part being bad! I just chucked it all in my smoothie, but mostly core. And kiwi fruit.👍

    Hi lovely ladies, Gosh so much to write Lissy: Thanks so much for all your info on the MTHFR, megafol and clexane, I really greatly appreciate it. I am bit confused again (never ends) but will write about that later. Thanks also for being honest about the hospital -I guess being Ongs hospital I should just feel happy and secure in this, but I really appreciate you sharing your experience, such an aweful thing to go through but at least that is behind you now. Hope you infected incision has healed. Actually I haven't disclosed to FS (as I know he would not approved) that I am also consulting Dr M and using the higher pred dose so I am really hoping nothing goes wrong and I don't have to fill FS in. Relieved to hear you and little bear are feeling good now. Take care of yourself when you go back to work - you and little bear are the most important things. Look forward to hearing about the 12 week scan and having you cross this milestone off. I am a bit nervous about clexane - do you think it has contributed to your bleeding or scares at all? Crofty: Sorry I didn't realise you had an ectopic as well at uterus pregnancy? Is that right? That must have been very scary? I hope the ectopic has sorted itself out and all is well with you. Bella: Congratulations on your baby girl!!!!!!!!! Can you post her name at some stage - Im sure you are probably busy enjoying and cuddling bub so no rush. Just good to see another Dr M graduate on here. Hope: Thinking of you and hoping you are doing OK B123: A heartbeat yeah! Congratulations, so special Sweet Lemodade: Congratulations! Scruffy: Hope preganacy is treating you well Time to shine: Awesome Hcg- hope your ms is ok Flowers - good lucky cycle buddy - you are soooo lucky to have a uterus 10 years younger. Like Lissy, I am 32 years but have been told my eggs are more 40 plus (AMH 4.2). All the best for preg test on the 22nd of July. Welsome Samosk, Kerrby and Woody. Someone on here asked about intralipid cost a while ago. I pay $60 at Gold Coast through my FS and it takes 4 hours in hospital but I am guessing you would have to be under his care. Sorry to all that on my computer in bubhub only the enter button doesn't change line so it looks like a jumbled mess that no one probably wants to read. AFM: FET booked for midday tomorrow yeah!!! Am very excited - they are only day 6 blasts so hopefully 1 or even better 2 of the 3 survive the thaw. Have so much enjoyed doing this FET cycle (don't normally get frozens) as opposed to the stress of a fresh cycle. I do have a clexane problem I wanted to put out there: I was due to start Clexane tomorrow under dr M advice but saw a haematologist today (earliest appointment I could get) under fs advice and anyway the haematologist said he wouldn't recommend aspirin or clexane for me which has thrown me into a bit of a spinner as thought I was knew what I was doing. Haematologists opinion was that I have normal homocysteine levels and that is it the homocysteine (not the MTHFR gene) that is associated with increased risk of clotting and that there are small risks with clexane use. Haematologist is meant to be the specialist in this area. I am compound heterozygous which seems controversial - on dr google, some say to treat it the same as homozygous (the more severe form) - so I emailed haematologists opinion to dr M and he still said to start clexane from the day after transfer - so confusing when you get more doctors involved. I guess I am a bit anxious about clexane (have no issue with the stim needles) as I am worried about possibly causing a bleed in the uterus that could cause a miscarriage??? All of you girls seem to use clexane so what do you think? helpful? A few of you do seem to have bleeds and scares? Do you think clexane was involved? It also slightly scares me that you seem to need it for 9 months (haematologist said if I started it he would suggest keeping it going for 9 months rather than changing things) and it seems a painful injection - although definitely worth it for a baby - more just worried about "small risk" of a bleed that could cause harm if I don't need it. The haematologist said he has never had anyone had a mc on clexane so that was good but he has seen some placental and cevix bleeds. Plus the other day I cut my finger and it bled quite a lot (more that normal) and I guess that is just from the Aspirin. Well, sorry to go on and on about this clexane business - its a good outlet here. Any thoughts are always appreciated. At this stage - think Im just going for the clexane as well (but have gone back and forth 10 times in the last hour so who knows). Best wishes to all xx

    Sandy, I am also compound hetero for mthfr. I haven't seen a haematologist, but I also have low homocysteine levels, as tested by my previous fs. She didn't even test for mthfr, just homocysteine so I guess she is of the same opinion as your haematologist. However, the pathology reports from one of my mcs showed clotting in the placenta. I wish that i had known that earlier...For me that is enough to say I want to be on this drug. I have also read on here that dr m also uses clexane for other reasons than just blood thinning, something about healthy placenta development, so it could also be a dual approach. I have full trust in dr m at this stage. Hope you can make the right decision for you xx

    Just a quickie, am on my phone but Sandy I saw your concerns re clexane. I am on the Bondi protocol (predisolone + clexane) and the clexane I have been told is use for its immune suppressor qualities rather than anything else (though I have MTHFR issues so I guess helps with that too) x
