Thanks @ricecracker, I can take Panadol/panadeine, but haven't wanted to. I've given in today though as they have gotten worse with the start of AF, hormones are through the roof this weekend and it's been a bit of a rough one!
@Kelly70 lucrin is a drug to suppress the ovaries so they don't release the eggs. Essentially at this phase in the cycle it puts you in to a state of menopause-hence the sweats, headaches and general crankiness. It eases when you start fsh to stimulate the eggs to grow. Essentially they want your ovaries to completely shut down so nothing is growing, then stimulate the eggs to grow in the hope that they grow more, and evenly. While it's great to have lots of eggs, of they are all different sizes you run the risk of some 'over cooking' and some being 'undercooked' and won't fertilise.
I think you are incredibly brave to do this on your own. I'm sure once your dad sees the scans and it becomes a reality he will come around. Especially once you have bub in your arms!
At my clinic you have to have bt before 9am. My clinic is 45mins away from home and about 30mins away from work.mi'm there T 645 when they open the doors for my bt and my first scan is at 720am on 11/4 which sounds fine, but they are always running late and I start work at 8.30am , luckily my work know and my boss is super supportive of me coming in late.
