I just wanted to pop on and say a massive thank you to you all for your kind words at this terribly upsetting time. I am in the 'calm before the storm' stage physically - the small amount of bleeding I had yesterday has ceased (for now) and I've not had any cramping or pain as yet. My clinic did a HCG yesterday and will do another on Monday. They said if my numbers don't drop I will need a D&C as my body won't naturally get rid of everything by itself. Whatever they need to do to move things forward I guess.
I'm not sure what our next step is. We have to re-asses what little finances we have left to see if we can scrape enough cash together for another round in due course. I did some brief research yesterday and as non-supportive as my clinic have been, they are significantly cheaper than the new one my OB wants to refer me to. I am going to do a proper spreadsheet to assess all of the costs - travel, time, procedures, what is and isn't included at each clinic and then decide where we go from there.
Has anyone ever accessed their super early to pay for IVF on compassionate grounds? If so, what was the process for that?
@winsor, I agree with @BIB - I think tomorrow's test will be the turning point for you. I could see the lines clearly on your sticks and it was a close call, but if I was pushed to make a choice I think today's test may have been a smidge darker than yesterdays test. I am that tomorrow is the day when you finally get your 'proper' double pink lines love. I am really hoping and praying with all my heart for you.
@leyshoja/Julie congratulations on the fantastic increase in HCG numbers. You must be so thrilled! I know you like to stay cool as a cucumber, but really - enjoy every minute of it! You have worked so hard to get to this point and you truly deserve to bask in that moment
@Infinity, I am so pleased things are finally underway for you! You must be beside yourself with excitement! Here's hoping this is really your time to shine love
Hello to everyone I've missed and everyone still to come. If you don't mind I might pull up a chair and make myself at home here for a while......
