@ladylee how did you go?
Thanks @jaybu84 - I am pretty sure tomorrow my period will arrive full on - I think it is the progesterone pessaries supressing it.
I almost didn't use it last night after the bright pink/red spotting but I thought nope, you never know I better keep using it.
If we cycle again it won't be until next year - DH put his foot down said we can't afford to go again straight away - even with the Medicare rebate
I honestly don't know if I have the strength to go again - it broke me in 2012 with my 3 failed cycles and I was in a very dark place - I am very scared to end up down that path again
Sending you lots of positive vibes for your blood test today xx
Thanks @TeamCarts - i will definitely give Lemsip a go. I read that even paracetamol is bad, but speaking with my FN this morning she has said it's fine to take every four hours because it's more important to keep fever at bay so yep, Lemsip it is! ☕️
@jaybu84 steam bowl with some eucalyptus in to unblock your sinuses, panadol for the aches and fever (if u have one) and drink lots of water. Ee the pessaries they are a higher dose I think but I find them less messy
@jeb8303 have u told your clinic? They might be able to increase your progesterone support, I had to do that last cycle
@loulabubble - the nurses don't answer the phone until after 11am - and yesterday I got the standard "perfectly normal - call us if it gets redder or heavier"
I always need to call them before they answer the bloody phones - I think I'm just so sad - I have none of my normal angry PMS symptoms, I'm just teary and sad
@jeb8303 I'm so sorry love. It's such an awful roller coaster ride. I know there's a light at the end of the tunnel somewhere but it's hard to see that through this journey. I have my fingers crossed it's breakthrough bleeding - keep going with your progesterone until they tell you not too. Could you try to get an earlier BT?
2009 - 2010 - diagnosed with severe endo - 2 x laps, 1 x laparotomy to remove endo.
2011 - IVF - 1st cycle - chemical pregnancy, FET - BFN, 2nd FET - BFN
2013 - another laparotomy - lost right ovary and tube to a 15cm endometrioma
2014 - July - cycle #2
August - FET BFN
There may still be hope. Though my short pregnancy ended in MC I also spotted well after implantation. I thought I had my period! I was due and when I found out i was pregnant I was 5 weeks, so u never know. Hormones can make u feel all kinds of crazy.
Easier said than done but you would try to relax?! The stress you are feeling can't be helping can u get a massage to even help relax for an hour?
If you would ever consider trying treatment in QLD the clinic I use is very friendly on the pocket and about 1/10 of the price of going through QFG who I used previously. Something to consider.
@Gelati I am so happy to hear you are going better with jabs!! 😃
I am always a bit slow catching up in here but good luck for tests today ladies xx

Yeah I think I am going to try and ask for an earlier BT - it's scheduled for Wednesday 8th - I don't feel like I'm going to make it past the weekend so I'd rather just get it over and done with so I can stop worrying and just grieve
