Ann- my nurse told me crinone is really expensive to buy and so gave me a script for the bullet pessaries. If IVFA are doing $72 for 36 pessaries that's really good. Why am I paying $120 for 30. I'm going to try calling some different places for when I runout.
oh Ann, I feel for you having to go through that receptionist every time you need something. I really think under the circumstances they should be obliging. My clinic was happy to give me as many blood tests and ultrasounds as I felt I needed. I understand that progesterone is not up there with the all important hcg levels but its not like you had a low borderline level of progesterone, yours was actually below the level!
Bertie- what a stuff up! As if we dont have enough stress in our lives!
mrs P - my periods have never been the same since starting ivf. I never ever use to spot, but since ivf some periods I've had 4 days of it. Others no spotting. The drugs change everything. In between my cycle 7 and 8 I went to see a doctor about my light and short periods. I remember it was day 11 after my period. He looked at my lining under ultrasound and basically said he had never in his career seen such a screwed up lining. Funny isn't it, that I could then get pregnant in that following cycle, which I started on day 21.
anyway I had my first obstetrician appointment today. All is still going well. Baby at over 2 cm and saw the flickering heart beat. We have progressed a week further than last time!!!
