@StillHopefull congrats on your EPU too. 6 is s great number - fingers crossed one of them is 'the one'!
@leash05 they usually say starting acupuncture before cycle is best but I have only just started mid cycle and acupuncturist said we will just pick up here and that transfer day was the most important to see him on.
As for hubby not listening to you about diet and caffeine I'd hold the needle you need to use each day in his face and say see this I'm doing the hard part and if you can't do this one little thing to improve our chances I'll jab this thing right where it hurts buddy 😝 but I'm hard core haha👼
@Juzzabelle fingers crossed for your embryos and transfer
@octonaut exciting for Monday..... Yay frustrating about the appointments though, you think they'd be a little more understanding about it especially knowing you have flights 😕 I hate when the girls would book me in for a 9 am blood test knowing that I started work at 8am with 1hr 20 travel time to work 😡
@hermia sounds like you had a fab holiday all the best for this cycle.
@MrsChino yay to a 2x transfer👍
@StillHopeful 6 is pretty great we got 8 and my FS was really happy with that.fingers crossed for you. I didn't have any bleeding after EPU but a couple of times when I used the toilet there was a little bit of tissue residue kind of looked like fine coffee granules but was only a little bit.
@Rarah11 welcome I have everything crossed that this is your cycle 😊
@Scootyboots. Thanks so much for your reply! I'll call about ACUPUNTURE tomorrow! In regards to my husband, he's a type 1 diabetic do has been giving himself 4 injections a day for 26 years!! 😁 so don't think that come back would work! Ha ha 😜
Haha yep no leverage with that one then lol
Gosh I've been on holiday for a week and have missed so much! It's taken me awhile to catch up on all the posts.
@leash05 my DH has type 1 diabetes too. Definitely get no sympathy when it comes to jabbing!
Welcome to the newbies and good luck to everyone else who is about to have transfers or are pupo. Hopefully there are lots of little sticky embryos around this month
I had my Day 21 appointment yesterday. It really highlighted the difference between our old clinic and the new one! Old clinic didn't even do day 21 appts, new clinic just feels so much more professional and personalised in comparison. Just waiting for AF to start now, hopefully it will be around Wednesday. Got to go back to the clinic on day 2 of my cycle for a scan as they found a cyst on my left ovary yesterday and they want to make sure it's gone before I start. Anyone else had to have a scan during AF? The idea grosses me out a bit!
Been tracking the forum's progress and good luck to everyone – stimming, prepping for collection, waiting for transfer or in the 2ww!
Ive got a question. Ive been instructed to take a micro dose of my trigger shot over 2 days before taking the remaining full dose. The Ovidrel Pen only comes with 2 needles (and I have 3 shots to take in total).
It’s the same brand and looks exactly the same as the needles I use for Gonal-F.
Q: Can I use one of the spare Gonal-F needles on the Ovidrel pen?
It seemed obvious but Im second guessing everything with this whole process.
Good luck to you with the new clinic and fingers crossed for AF showing up soon. I had to have a hycosy scan which came just after my period and that wasn't too bad grossness- wise. But I agree the idea of one during AF is not appealing.
@besha- yep I had a scan with AF, totally gross. They do them on day 1, 2 or 3 of your period! Good luck. Just think, its only one and then its done And they are used to it lol.
I'm feeling so off today. Very frustrating. We had plans to do things, but it's so hot outside and I am so tired and my stomach is being a pain in the butt. So many cramps/pully pains now. I can't wait for EPU now and getting rid of the follies and eggs!
