    Unfortunately I got a BFN on a HPT this morning - 9dp5dt. Not entirely surprised, but had soooooo hoped that having my sister's donor eggs was going to be the breakthrough we needed. But it doesn't look like it's meant to be. Very sad, as I now just don't think it will happen for us, since donor eggs didn't work. Will POAS the next two days and then official BT is Monday.

    We still have three of my sister's frosties, so will be looking at everything regarding implantation etc before doing an FET, even though I'm already doing Dr M's immune protocol with Intrallipids, aspirin, prednisolone and clexane (this is the third time using Dr M's protocol). It's obviously my body, rather than my previous "old eggs", which in a way, makes me feel a little more annoyed/sad in that my eggs may have been OK, but my body won't even let it start to implant. Will let you know if there's any exciting change tomorrow - trying to think positive :-)) Otherwise will welcome any thoughts about anything I may not have tried so far, or things I should query.

    Just a quick update.... After two years of my FS saying he doesn't believe in Natural Killer Cells (and me going behind his back to Dr M anyhow!), my FS says today, "We should test you for Natural Killer Cells". I could have fallen off my seat, but just smiled inside! So as I was having a Day 21 endometrial scratch anyhow, he did it there and then. I know that it's not the full NKC biopsy that Dr M does and sends off overseas, but it's certainly a start, especially since I've not been able to have the full one done with Dr M due to timings of IVF cycles in the past 6 months since I've been seeing him.

    I asked my FS some my questions - he will continue with aspiring and clexane, but wouldn't agree to Prednisolone (which I've been taken for the previous 3 cycles anyhow) as he says it can cause cleft palate. I hadn't heard that before, but thought it strange since on my last cycle one of my nurses actually commented about Prednisolone, so obviously some doctors at that clinic are prescribing it, but obviously not mine. When I mentioned Dexamethasane, I thought he was going to have a fit, so that was a "no" from him. Then I mentioned Feldene (Piroxicam) which is meant to stop the uterus contracting during ET, but he'd never heard of it. He looked it up right there and then, but the first study he found (one from 2009) said it didn't work, so a "no" for that too. I kind of gave up at that point, as was planning to ask about Augementin, Doxycycline and Nuprogen, but I think I'll just leave all those, plus the "no's" for Dr M next week, whom I'm likely to get a less biased opinion.

    Good luck with dr m... yes cleft palate is a risk but its a small risk. And the abs should be fine... anyhow your fs sounds like he's only just opening up to the new immune system protocals... its a start... Thank god for dr m.

    Katiana.... yes, I think there's good surgery that can be done now for cleft palate, so it's a risk I probably would take - well, I've been taking it on the previous couple of cycles, so really no different now I know about it.

    AFM.... saw my endocrinologist today and he's happy that he can get my thyroid back to normal before FET in four weeks time. He will do a BT four days before FET, and if not good then he will recommend that we can postpone another month. That all sounds well, but will IVFA let me cancel four days before the FET? I'll have to ring them tomorrow and find out.

    I think you need to make sure you're taking megafol if you are on prednisolone or dex so it ups the folate you are getting. You also need to take caltrate plus and magnesium as it depletes this from your bones and you're high risk for osteo. I also get wicked cramps if I don 't take a lot of magnesium.
