Laned - thank you so much for your lovely post. We have been on an eventful journey. It was truly amazing to come out with a BFP at the end of it.
I have just had my second blood test and my HCG has gone up to 263 (was 89 on Sat) and Progesterone is 181 - so all good there. They will repeat bloods on Friday and then I just wait for a scan in 3 weeks.
MrsErinR - welcome. You have stumbled across the most amazing forum, filled with women who are just so wonderful and inspirational. Jodie is amazing for starting this thread - as you can see it has led to many successful pregnancies - and a multitude of support from so many women who are on the same path.
Sunny- Wow, you've had your fair share of worry haven't you? Your bleed must have been frightening. How wonderful that your OB was so obliging to see you so quickly. I'm on clexane too (40mg a day). Is it pretty standard to bleed like that on clexane then? I'm guessing I should be prepared in the event it happens to me also?
Pixel/Jodie - Keeping both of you in my thoughts and prayers over the next few days. I have my fingers crossed for both of you xx
Sooty - I went back and found the correspondence I had re PGD testing and I was told by my Dr from the CFC that the don't do PGD testing as it "is not proven to improve the success in egg donation so we do not offer it for this procedure" this was back in May - so maybe things have changed? Not long for you to wait now regardless? I hope you are getting REALLY excited. You've got an awesome adventure in front of you!
I went back to my regular acupuncturist for the first time today since we arrived home from Cape Town. The receptionist burst into tears when I told her I was pregnant. She was actually the first person who told me about South African Egg Donation as she is a midwife and told me that she had a patient come in who was 52 successfully pregnant via SA Egg Donor) I came home and started googling - and found Jodie's thread...
Lots of love and baby dust to all of you xx
