Hi @Jem70, looks like you're doing some good prep for this next cycle starting 28th- best of luck!
(I had to let a giggle out at your move to Paris thoughts - I desire the exact same thing! There is NO substitute for French fromage - ever.)
@Kelly70 AACEP was the trick for me last time and I've read amazing stories. I'm doing it again this time so will be interesting.
@ScubaGal it's agonist / antagonist with estrogen priming - so a LOT of injections.
one week synarel
switch from synarel to daily antagonist injection, until EPU
one week estrogen
5 days gonal f
5 - 8 days menopur
Also stops Lh at start of cycle which is considered bad for older eggs with the antagonist injection starting so early and menopur not introduced until closing to end
@littlesparrow74 - how's your low carb & bone broth eating making you feel?
I've spent some time exercising and not eating as much carb and I've noticed a huge increase in energy and general well being. Plus, the IVF drugs must now have left my system....
@Helsbaby - had an awesome break away from everything, thanks for asking. Was good to "detox" from all things IVF for a while.
You must be so looking forward to meeting your little (above average!!!) bubbsy by now. Not long at all - have you gone nursery crazy? (a girlfriend of mine recently gave birth and in the week prior was on the online baby sites buying up the universe.....!!!)
@Biscotti71 - thanks love, yes tough couple of days lately but moving on now and looking forward to apt with Lynn.
Yes bone broth was mentioned to me by another bub hubber - supposed to be beneficial for eggs, but it's not the most attractive sounding snack is it!! Yum boil up some old bones and get that down ya every day (on top of all the crazy supplements and other stuff we take). Anything is worth a shot I guess.
Feeling guilty about the drinks I had Friday night when out with work friends actually, don't think I'll do that again. Even though it was fun at the time and good to decompress.
AACEP - might mention to Lynn although not sure I'll dare to pipe up in the presence of greatness! I'm pretty sure she advocates low dose protocols in older women.
The bone broth and low carb was making me feel terrific, my head felt clear I had energy and wasn't hungry all the time like I usually am. I have just been in Melbourne for 4 days for a conference and it was hard to make good choices and I did have some drinks at social functions (there would have been too many questions from colleagues) and I feel terrible! Back into it already and already starting to feel better.
...still no symptoms.
Hi gals, starting to get cramps now doc said its braxton hicks far out. Biscotti I have now bought everything, even got the breast pump. You should see this contraption ! Kelly not long now till you see Lynn, it's normal to feel crap after a BFN, I felt it 5 times (including FET). And I did drown put my sorrows with after work yager bombs every time. Scuba, I had zero preggo symptoms until I was about 8 weeks all I felt was period cramps, even up to the 7 week scan that the clinic did and detected the first heartbeat so don't stress on symptoms just yet. The funniest one was "veiny boobs". I was amazed at how many people expected to see those straight after a BFP and stressed because they didn't have them. I didn't notice those until 28 weeks haha.
