    Actually Winsor, this was set up between my OB and myself - nothing to do with my existing FS. I've sought a second opinion from a completely unrelated clinic. Can't hurt to have a second opinion. I won't be telling my existing FS about it though!

    AFM spoke to the FS today and he has given us a tiny bit of flexibility regarding our embies (they are actually all the same grade), so I have a lining scan and bloods Wednesday, Thursday is transfer day. Holy crap. I am now sh1tting bricks that this is finally going to happen and we have at least a shot at getting UTD, this week. Eek!

    Roll on Thursday! I am now researching finding a new short term hobby to pass the dreaded TWW...

    Exciting times @Corbes! I don't really have any hobbies per se that i can recommend. I read a lot. I cook. And then I eat, lol. But I am not crafty at all - well, not in a good way, anyway

    Let's see.....Do you do scrapping? You could make a scrap page for this stage of the IVF journey, and that could become part of a baby journal eventually.

    You could plan and plant out a herb garden.

    You could always sit and google madly like I did, ha ha!

    nice. I'm going to be drawing this week for my assignment, just have to finish artist research first. I think those colouring books are pretty relaxing once you get started and in the zone

    Actually, I have a colouring book already. It was a gift from my sister, and is full of pictures of beautiful birds and animals and butterflies - nothing really 'adult' about it. The problem is that I've deemed it too pretty to be drawn in It's an issue I seem to have - I always save my 'nice stuff' for a 'special occasion' and then it never gets used!

    I'll pass on the tax returns thanks. I'm an accountant by trade, and I don't need any more of them piling up on my desk!

    So... He said my ANA & thyroid antibodies are high, that my NK56 is elevated (but not terribly high), and my NK57 is borderline. He said I definitely have a degree of immune factors that would impact my fertility, but that it's not terribly bad. And he recommends the following:

    Steroid (pred): starting 3 wks before transfer on 15mg, increasing to 20mg on transfer, increasing to 25mg if I get bfp

    Clexane: starting a week before transfer but not on day of transfer (forgot to ask dosage)

    Intrallipid infusions: 1 week before transfer, another if I get a bfp, then monitor from that point on. He said he would recommend a dosage of 400mls (as opposed to usual dose of 200-250mls).

    Higher dosage of progesterone after transfer.

    So he said obviously don't need to do any of this yet bcos were not planning a transfer till jan/feb. Basically I'll call him about a month before we want to do the transfer so he can go they everything with me again & I guess send me scripts for whatever I need?? I think he said something about how he can assist with any of the meds that I need.. Damn.. My brain is a bit foggy!! I'm presuming that he will send me scripts for whatever I need? (Would that be correct @Chiefsgirl? Or anyone else who has been treated by Dr M???)

    Holy cow... I better lose some kilos before I do a transfer.. I thought the weight gain on 10mg of pred was bad enough!! 15-25mg will be horrific for my waistline!! (Not that I'll care if I get a bfp mind you!)


    That's really interesting Charlie. And really exciting that things are starting to fall into place for you.

    You know what? No-one has ever said peep to me about NK Cells or ANA or Immune Issues. It's something I will be raising at my next appointments with both FS's. I am the first to admit I know nothing about any of those, but surely these are things that all FS's would be aware of? I wonder then why nobody had ever mentioned them to me before....
