    I want in on the robbery too!!! Haha!

    Thanks @soclose. Trying to keep zen but don't think it's working. I've woken up every night the past week with night terrors. Same dream for years where a lady stands over me and I wake up and leap out of bed trying to hit her! Very strange. Anyway off to yoga tonight to try and cultivate some calm!

    Is it just me or does it seem like Dr M is more willing to try the more aggressive treatments earlier and more willingly than before with new patients?!

    Ladybug... I definitely think you're right, but this is true for the FSs too. Mine is now doing things that I've asked time and time again for, and now he just does it as standard!!

    And yes, I'll join you all in robbing a bank. In fact, I've mentioned that (jokingly!) to DH a couple of times before, and only asked him again the other day, but he said he doesn't think he'd actually be any good at robbing a bank!! Lol.

    My FET is booked in now for Friday. Dr M says he wants to me to use progesterone pessaries, but FS said not to. I'm going with Dr M, and ordered them today from a compounding chemist, which is the first time I've bought them myself, as normally they were provided by the clinic. However, I came away wondering, how do I guarantee that there is 400 in each pessaries and not just sawdust?? Would some places be better than others, or should I not worry about this and take it that they're professional?

    @bertie: my advice on progesterone. Get it from the pharmacy that other syd ladies have used. To this date, I am still wondering if the crappy progesterone pessaries that I got were crap and thus the miscarriage. I know ppl think I must be insane to think that. But u do know that not enough progesterone can cause miscarriage! And it happened few days after I switched to the new batch. First, the pharmacy has never made 400mg before. On the way to provide my script, they told me if they couldn't put 400mg in one, they had to split two. I almost wanted to switch pharmacy but because FS always just gave me enough and they needed at least 24 hrs to make them, I ran out of choices but to trust them. So this last cycle, I drove 30 mins each way to get it from a place some other ladies used. L4 nice and high. And i threw away $100 worth pessaries from my first transfer from that particular pharmacy.

    Do you know what your progesterone level is usually like during a cycle? Just curious as there never seems to be much emphasis on p levels but mi e is monitored very closely.

    What a horrible dream! Another question about neupogen lol. How many days before transfer did you start? I'm just interested to see how different all our protocols are. dr M said I am to start one week before et.

    SoClose I'm doing medicated FET with ethinol estrodiol tabs until day 20/21 which is transfer & on day 1 bloods my P4 was 2.5 and at day 10 scan was zero... E2 is under 50. Only have one more bloods 2 days before transfer. So we're on very different protocols? What level do they want your P4 to be before transfer?

    MGC Bertie progesterone is great, why has your FS not wanted you to take it after transfer? I thought it was pretty standard with ivf to get results? Weird! Great you're taking it for this cycle!

    Ladybug wow that's awful having terrors... I did some hypnotherapy with a GP twice after my miscarriages & it helped relax my mind... would that help calm you a bit? Also magnesium powder is awesome to help you sleep, especially if on steroids as they deplete you of it.

    @MGC Bertie, I guess DH not thinking you'd make a good robber is a compliment!! Best of luck for Friday. I'd not worry about the progesterone. Compounding pharmacies in oz are very tightly regulated.
    @soclose, haha fire away with the questions! I started neupogen 6 days before ET, meant to be 7 but I did IVIG day 7 and they can't be done on the same day.
    @PreciousHeart, I did look into hypnosis a couple of cycles ago but it was $350/hour and I just couldn't justify it. Watching a programme on SBS about the placebo effect and thinking I should have splashed out on the hypnosis!! I'll look into the magnesium tomorrow-thanks for that.
    @bbhope, thanks for the chart. Good to know what the ranges should be.

    Had a BIG glass of wine with dinner-jolly better be the last for 9 months!

    Absolutely. I had one fail and he is straight away wanting us to do ivig. No intrallipids at all.
