    Bbhope... off the top of my head I stopped the progesterone pessaries about 12-13 weeks. I swapped from Dexmethasane at 9 weeks, to Prednisolone and am still on that - 30 from week 9, 25 from week 15, 20 from week 17 and 15 from week 19. Presuming it will continue to go down by 5 every two weeks after that, if it's following the pattern.

    @bbhope I have been abit conservative up until now so I'm starting to get to the point where I'll throw everything at it but the next step is testing our embryos so we probly won't get a transfer until July/August, it feels like forever away but after 6 transfers 3 chemical pregnancies and 1 miscarriage what's an extra few months just to make sure our embryos are healthy.
    Can I ask if you ever had biopsy by dr m? He hasn't done my biopsy only my bloods
    @Miss Sagi yep I'm on clexane but fs also wants me on aspirin on next transfer so I'll be taking both, no blood clotting disorders but I do have a family history or pregnancy loss so maybe that's why. I did read the book maybe I need to get it back out again all the different drugs and protocols gets confusing at times
    @Scruffy the only testing I haven't done with dr m is the Chicago bloods and alpha matchin thing that requires LIT, I figured no point having Chicago bloods because if after 2 pgd tested transfer no earth side baby I'll be moving onto IVIG anyway , unless there's another reason to have Chicago bloods??? I do have appnt with dr m in June so I can ask him then
    @Hope06 that's amazing news I'll definitely shoot them an email, we need more recognition in Australia, would save ppl like us going through fs at the beginning who are against the immune side of reproductive failure until we hit many losses or failures do we start looking for answers on our own.
    @MGC Bertie so happy things are going smoothly for you, I've told so many ppl your story because it truly gives me strength, especially when I get dumb asses asking me when I'm going to give up since it hasn't worked!!! I didn't realise ppl just give up on their dreams so easily but I guess some ppl do.

    Hello to all the other ladies 😊😊

    Not much to report on myself still emotionally sorting my head out after our loss last week.
    Won't be starting anything until next month but at least that gives me a break from the emotional roller coaster and to digest what happened

    Hi all, sorry for lack of personals. @miissalina, I'm so sorry to read your sad news. So unfair and especailly when it would have been such a surprise to have a natural pregnancy. Hang in there, it will happen. You might just need some extra meds to help get you there. @Scruffy, I've looked everywhere and can't find all my notes. I'm nearly 100% sure I was doing 5g/hour. I've done 15, 20 and 25g and the 25g. I can't remember how many grams per ml there is though so you'll have to get the nurse/Dr to work that out. Also, they'll start you off slowly as per redcross(?) guidelines to make sure you don't react. I just got them to stop increasing the rate to even it out to around 5g/hr over the whole time. Sorry this probably makes no sense! Dr M always said, the slower the better! Good luck!

    I am so sorry for your loss. It's really hard to accept this kind of result. Hope you feel better soon. You were so close- I am sure the angle will come next time.

    Edit: sorry bindy111, I came across your other post. I am so sorry for your loss. I have had 2 early loss myself. If you have ANA positive and high, you should be on steroid for sure. Xx
    Thankyou for your kind words, it's so cruel isn't it. Thankyou so much for your advice, you may have potentially saved my pregnancy. I spoke with my endocrinologist and obstetrician today and they agreed that i need to be on prendisalone. The OB said clexane isn't necessary. So I'm truly a big pill bottle! Metformin, aspirin, thyroxine 200mcg, prendisalone 15mg for two weeks, 10mg another two weeks then 5mg until 10 weeks. Do I need to watch out for anything with the steroids?

    Some people take it in the morning so that it's further from sleep time at night due to steroids not helping in the sleep area.

    My Ana was high when tested a few years ago but it was because of the hashimotos showing anti thyroid antibodies out. These are my bloods and levels today: thyroglobulin antibody 980; thyroid peroxidase 534. That is an improvement. My TGA was over 2000 last reading!

    I got full on side effect with prednisolone, fast weight gain (I was in normal bmi before it), elevated glucose level, have to wee all night long (can't be all due to preg especially early on), water retention and stretch mark! I am weaning it once I hit 12w.
