@mrsjaguar I’m sorry your cycle’s being so confusing. I hope you get some answers from your BT today.
Hey @Keiko2012 Both times I have used Gonal F I have had an absolute cracker of a headache and some nausea for about the first 48-72 hours but it has gone away after that. For me it’s like a really terrible hangover minus the fun night leading up to it. I can imagine that it wouldn’t have been fun for you on a night shift! Anyway, hoping that it clears up for you too and you feel better soon. With regards to fresh vs frozen, my FS also reckons frozen is preferable. The only challenge for us is actually getting anything to freeze! So it’s fresh all the way until that happens.
@emily3011 My first cycle I didn’t do anything special to prepare, other than my usual exercise (boot camp). I probably only have one alcoholic drink a week max and one coffee per day (which FS said was fine to continue), so didn’t worry too much about either of those things. I kept eating cake That time resulted in a chemical pregnancy. Our second cycle I tried a lot harder with regards to cleaning up my diet, exercising, meditating, cutting out caffeine etc, but that cycle was a bfn. This time it’s more of a mixed bag. I’ve been taking a whole bunch of vitamins and had grand plans of being all like ‘my body is a temple’ lol, but then I had surgery in November and couldn’t exercise for 6 weeks after that, so gained a couple of kilos. I also had an OS holiday over Christmas/New year where I ate and drank All The Things. Not the healthiest time, but probably what DH and I needed after all the stress of 2014. Anyway, this week I’m back into boot camp, and getting back on track diet-wise (trying anyway), so we’ll see what happens.
I’m still sniffing away on the synarel, and started the pill yesterday. I’ll see the FS on Friday to see if I’m properly suppressed. If so, we’ll set a date to start jabbing. Yikes. I’m much more apprehensive about this cycle to be honest. It’s a totally different approach, so I’m a bit worried that it will all be a bust. I swing between being hopeful that this is the one, and being completely convinced that we will fail. It takes such a toll, this IVF business, doesn’t it?
