Hi Ladies I second @Jem70's words of thanks for the support that this thread offers. You ladies are amazing and keep me strong and semi sane.
I had a scan and bloods for my FET this morning, CD14. After a bit of stress about a large cyst on one of my ovaries things are looking good. I had my surge today so am booked in for a FET on Monday. Just so happens to be my RDO so that works perfectly. I am booked in for a massage and facial on Saturday and acupuncture pre and post transfer.
Good luck Littlesparrow
All the best for transfer tomorrow @littlesparrow74! How perfect for you that it's your RDO so you can get to your pre and post acupuncture easily and then go home and relax with your little embie onboard
So Day 2 of jabs for me. Waz has me splitting my Gonal F dose (morning and night) and I'm also injecting clexane, luveris and Scitropin. My next appointment is booked in for Thursday to see how my follies are progressing.
Big wave to everyone and hope you're all doing well
Goodness Penny! What a pincushion you are at the moment you poor thing!
Good luck tomorrow littlesparrow x
Kelly I'm hoping your bells are ringing so loud you can't hear anything else ;-D
@Kelly70 @Vixjc Yeah, I second Vix!! Hope they're going off like Big Ben at New Years!!!!
@LittleSparrow Good Luck Luv!!!
@Penny75 Good stuff Luv!! Aaah yes, like being at a "Dart's Championship" doing one of Wazza's Cycles!! Only thing is you're the dartboard!! Have you ever seen one on tv?? "One hundred and Eeeiggghttty!!" Anyhoo, I never did the Luveris or Scitropin... it does the trick for you Luv!! Oooh, can't wait to see how things are looking at your scan
Hello to all the other Lovelies too...hope all is well in your respective worlds......xoxoxo
Hah, hello lovely girls. No bells ringing as said gentleman cancelled me 3 times in a row and I've now kicked him to the curb.
I'm afraid a new rship prob wouldn't have survived the news I've had this week anyway.. My whole life is upside down. My beloved brother who is also my best mate has been diagnosed this week with incurable follicular non-Hodkgins lymphoma.. He's 39 and a tall, fit tennis coach who is the picture of health. Had an enlarged lymph node that came up a couple months back biopsied and none of us thought anything of it. People get lumps and swellings all the time and they are rarely anything to worry about. The phone call I got from him last Tues is easily the worst moment of my life to date. Two young kids. I'm utterly devastated, as are my parents.
Kelly oh no your poor thing that's devastating about your brother. A second opinion could be valuable. How can they say it's incurable so soon? Wishing you all the strength in the world. Sounds like you're better off without that flakey bloke anyhow.
Thanks @Skyler - it's follicular non-hodgkins for which they have no cure currently.. The slow growing type. They need to do more tests to determine what Stage he is - if it's Stage 1 or localised to the one node, they can often cure it with radiotherapy. However only 20% of ppl present with Stage 1 as it's an insidious evil fracker of a cancer that can sit in your system for years without symptoms, before suddenly showing up as a swollen lymph node and by then it can be all through your lymphatic system, spleen, bone marrow. They can do chemo then but they are unable to get rid of fully at this point which means relapse will occur down the track. I'm just praying that it's localised and if not, that they can send him into remission for 10 years and that by then they'll have a cure. It's rare in young ppl - usually affects over 60.
