Sorry double post.
Sorry hun just realised you had it last week
Oh @Heyside we've all been there with unpredictable breakdowns but for you it must be so difficult with your DH away. I'm so sorry love. I hate it when you know the outcome and know you have to continue the meds until you get that confirmation. Still, you never know and I always told myself I'd feel worse if I got a miracle BFP and had stopped my meds early. Hold onto that love, and I hope this week goes quickly for you.
Thanks @Keiko2012 and @shelby27. How are you both doing? I hope you're doing as best you can.
I had a dream last night that I had my scan but it was with my old FS and saw the baby with a very healthy heartbeat and it was also starting to look like a baby. It was amazing. Then I wake up to some red spotting this morning 😔. I have been having some difficulties in getting my prog pessaries in and last nights did hurt a little as I practically had to force it in so I'm hoping its localized bleeding from that rather than from my uterus. It's like my cervix has changed shape or something - sorry for the TMI - but I might give my poor cervix a break and go up the back passage as that's what the nurse suggested. 4x pessaries a day for a month might just be taking its toll. I hope that's all it is. I'll keep you posted, the appt isn't until 230.
Oh ree I will be thinking of you.
Travelling ok here, been busy sorting out FIL funeral I feel like I should be taking it more easy, but just can't. Will test on Wednesday FX
Good luck today @Ree888. I’m so excited and nervous for you! I will be thinking of you and stalking the thread for your updates…
@Heyside Oh love, I am only too familiar with those random meltdowns myself. This journey is just so painful and hard. It sounds like you’ve been doing it pretty tough lately. I hope you’re okay? I mean, I know you’re not and that’s totally to be expected, but you know what I mean. Is there someone who can give you a bit of IRL support while your DH is away?
@shelby27 I can only imagine how stressful things are at the moment. I am crossing my fingers that a lovely bfp will bring some happiness to you and your DH at this sad time.
@Keiko2012 How are you going? Have you locked in your follow up appointment yet?
@Ree888 - I think everything will be totally fine, I have a feeling all will be well. Bleeding is so common and you havent had a big enough one to suggest MC. Keep us updated! By the way- I dont think you need to put those pessaries in all the way to your cervix, the less you can irritate it the better. The pessaries are a task arent they- my DH is like 'oh your lying in bed again' - not for fun/relaxation! Its due to pessary duty- having to lie down for 30 mins each time!
@Heyside- im so sorry- I actually had my BFN POAS and called the office and they were fine for me to stop meds and got me into see warren a couple days later- not saying you should do that but just know that it is an option- i was struggling with all the pessaries/tablets/injections and just didnt want to do it anymore plus i was running out of meds and didnt want to have to pay for more! the luteal support for wazza cycles is so hard to manage- no wonder you are having teary moments.
@MrsChino- when is AF due!? Not long now til the ball starts rolling!
@shelby27 - what an awful to have to deal with when cycling, you are very strong indeed.
AFM- had EPU on friday- expected 10-12 eggs, got 22 again. Crazy really. Exact same number as last time, exact same fert rate (14)- 9 still in the running today with the right cell number but grade 2-3 so not the best- below average to average. It kind of just feels like history repeating so its quite hard to deal with. I really wanted less eggs of better quality so I just dont know how I managed to grow 22 again. But oh well. It was a shock to wake up to and I think even he got a big surprise doing the pick up. I guess I just have to think every cycle can be different and on the upside I feel so much better this time- no OHSS yet! Which is amazing as I double triggered with pregnyl! Ive been back at the gym. Probably not a good idea really but I kind of just wanted to because I could. Anyway transfer Weds/Thurs I guess. Can anyone recommend a good acupuncturist? I used to go when we lived interstate and it was $140 for pre and post transfer but it seems very expensive here. Im getting a bit desperate though so will probably just pay in the hope it does something to get me off this rollercoaster!
@Ducky01 wow you are an egg producing machine lady! It's early days for those embies yet so give them a chance - mine weren't looking that great in the early days but picked up over time. I'm so excited you're back to transfer soon and are feeling good with no signs of OHSS. That in itself is a good omen I feel! Yes those bl00dy pessaries - I am so sick of them - I have to say though as gross as it is, back passage has been great for giving my front passage a break! Wish I knew that sooner!
Thank-you for your words of encouragement - thank all of you ladies for your words of encouragement and support it really has meant the world to me!
I do know a good acupuncturist - she is in Toowong so I'm not sure if that's too far for you or not (only about 10-15mins from spring hill/wickham terrace) her name is Kelly Seipel and the clinic is called Ondol. When I was going to her I was paying $85 per visit but that was last year so it may have gone up since then. She specializes in fertility.
