    Yep I have another scan on Saturday to see how things are progressing. But I won't be paying too much attention to follicle number though as last time I had 10 follicles but still only 2 eggs.

    Congrats on your transfer bel! I hope you have a nice relaxing afternoon planned.

    Hi LT TTC, I'm a bit teary still so apologies for the cut and paste..
    yes I'm officially PUPO although the ET didn't exactly go to plan. With my retroverted uterus and multiple surgeries and scar tissue it took them 30mins of digging to try to get access. Anyway, finally got a good looking blasty on board. Am a bit shaken and worse for wear though but hoping this is our special one

    Rocky my FS only let us put one in but that's all hubby wanted anyway ;-)

    Good news that your cycle is travelling along ok Phee

    Sorry to hear it was a difficult transfer bel! I always find transfer a little uncomfortable at the best of times so that must have been awful, you poor thing. At least your embryo is in there now safe and sound!

    Bel.... congrats on being PUPO. I so know how you feel - for one of my ETs I was in such a lot of pain that I pretty much fainted. It was mostly because the clamp thing was not correct from the start and the pain was immense. Thankfully my DH was with me at that one, because as I was starting to faint I was sure I was about to fall off the bed. It was dreadful, and I feared the next ET, but all later ones have been relatively painless - just a 2 second pain for the actually ET. Hopefully that means your TWW will be smooth xx

    Phee.... yes, you can get lots of follicles grow, but only the ones at the correct size - roughly between 18-24mm on the morning of the trigger, are likely to produce mature eggs. So always ask what the sizes are for each follicle. Some FNs kind of rush this part through, but I found just asking point-blank did the trick.

    AFM.... 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.

    Oh no, you lovely ladies are scaring me for me transfer in Sept, lol!! They told me the hard part was over. Do they give you any medication while they do the transfer? I remember my doctor saying it was similar to a Pap smear but I'm not keen on any needles being poked around down there! I was watching a you tube video from the USA about a transfer & they got Valium type of meds to take beforehand.

    Bel, that's good they've transferred one for you When do you test? I have everything crossed for you.

    Phee, that's good they're doing a scan on Sat, I hope it all goes well for you & to plan. I also have everything crossed for you.

    MGC, that's good your FS is doing the scratch now for you. I don't really understand too much about it but I hope it gives you some answers. Sometimes I can't believe how some doctors will overlook things that we've researched & want to do. That's good he's doing it for you now

    Hi Rocky, I think for most it relatively quick and painless (mildly uncomfortable). No needles as such just a tube thing to guide it in.
    I'm testing next sat (10 sleeps!)

    Don't stress Rocky! My first transfer was mildly uncomfortable - exactly like a pap smear really, the second I didn't feel a thing.

    Rocky....yes, normally the transfer is just like a pap smear. Yes, as Bel said there are no needles, and normally the speculum isn't a problem, but it can go in "wonky" and when opened up can cause pinching, hence why all the pain I had. My cervix is introverted, so I wondered if that hindered the process. I would think 95% of times it would be fairly painless.

    Yes, the endometrial scratch is supposed to help implantation (the idea is that a little trauma makes the uterus cells work a bit harder) and is done the month before the FET. So along with the scratch he did the biopsy, to check for natural killer cells.

    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.
