Congrats MrsErinR! I am so happy for you!
@mgcbertie, dr m told me to get buscopan (over the counter) to take on transfer day and for 5 days afterwards to relax the uterus. He also prescribed me Valium for transfer and 5 days after.

springRain - Thank you thinking cycle will start July / August hit a bit of a hump so need some more time to get organized $$$ wise.
MrsErinR - Big Congrats on your news.
Biscotti71 - Ive heard the same bout it giving headaches fingerscrossed we don't get headaches with it. I agree my head is about to explode from the IVF rollercoaster caper. PMSL I read that sentence the IVF Rollercoaster Craper. I think now have to wait till July / August to start my cycle due to getting $$$ organized. Ugghhh not what I need just need to get on with the deal feel like don't have time to waste. Good luck with your mega dose and hope your growing some nice follies.
Faithandhopelove - Oh ugghh the headaches with Synarel a lot of people have mentioned. Thank you thinking will start cycle in July / August. Fingers crossed that your eggies are still growing away & they all make it.
Bluewombat - Good luck with your journey looking for egg donor I hope its short and sweet. I have been reading about people going to DE in South Africa and also Greece is really popular as well. There is a whole thread on here about it.
Chiefsgirl - All those vitamins have you noticed a difference taking them? I was thinking I need to take more as im only on Pregancy multi and CQ10 I was taking nathuropath herbs but that was to regulate my cycles and FS to not take that anymore. I'll have to start reading up on what is good to take.
I hope everyone else is travelling along nicely. Has anyone tried accupuncture and do you think it helped? I'm looking at July / August to start my cycle now as have to get some more $$$ organized so need a little longer to get there. At least gives me a bit more of a chance to take in all this information and get better organized.
Update o n transfer day. Strangely after being told only 3 fertilised there were actually 5. Our most developed embie unfortunately showed signs of abnormal growth so we had to go for the two lesser developed ones. They are now on board. The extra 2 were even slower ( maybe that's whý they didnt mention those). In any case it doesnt look like we will be succesful this round. Our FS was very positive though that we should continue with further rounds as our egg numbers are ok.
Faithhope.... congrats on being pupo. If they put in two, then they're obviously happy with them, so they have as good a chance as any transfer, so fingers crossed xx
By the way, I must be one of those women who never had really any symptoms with any drugs, Syranel or others. Just a bit of bloating and sore boobs, so not everyone gets symptoms or side-affects.
Chiefsgirl... yes, I asked Prof I about taking buscopan, but he'd never heard of that either!! I'm sure Dr M will agree to one of those next week.
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.
@Twinkley I drf think it has helped my egg quality, if. Lathing else it focuses me on eating well, drinking 2-3 litres of water a day and exercising.
@mgc Bettie, my clinic wd let me cancel anytime up to the day they thaw the frosties.
So yesterday had ET, it was at Morula stage, would have preferred Blastocyst, but we are you too do, the scientist seemed ok with it. Unfortunately the other one stoped at 7 cells, and the other at 5 cells (which I expected this one too). Am a bit disappointed that we didn't get a frozen one, but am not thinking past this one. I also had acupuncture before and after ET, first time for me, and it wasn't too bad, am going again on Monday. Goodluck faithandhopellove.....look after yourself the next few days, plenty of rest... Goodluck to everyone else....and yes Synarel gave me headaches, but nothing I couldn't handle, I like short cycles better than long, but seems I get more eggs on long.
