    I haven't been given any answers to my miscarriages. I was told likely to be chromosomal due to my age. I had the last 3 tested and 2 were normal karyotype. I was then told I have been very unlucky. I am sorry they only picked up your MTHFR issue after your last loss. So frustrating. I was tested for that among a few other things and that was fine. I had an endo biopsy done which I was told was ok and I spoke to Dr M yesterday (I had sent him a copy of my report) and he said my CD56 results were quite high so who knows. He did say a few things to me which made sense and has offered explanations where no-one else has before. He is sending me a slip for some more blood tests. If you like, I could let you know what they are for and you can compare them to what has been done and see if you are missing anything.

    We will be doing IVF with PGD. Have commenced all the background checks and hopefully will be able to start in November. If not, it will need to be January as the clinic we are going with doesn't allow you to cycle in December.
    Thanks @calypso75 I'd appreciate seeing what tests Dr M is ordering for you to make sure I've had them all done - I think I have but maybe something is missing? I think IVF with PGD is a great idea - that's what I would have done this year if I had have had more than one follicle and gotten to EPU. It wasn't meant to be, so I'll just keeping working on my health and see what the next step might be. Good luck!

    Thanks girls. I know this is a problem that needs to be addressed somehow. I'm just such a basket-case at the moment. You know, I still have moments where I'll be sitting here quite fine and then all of a sudden burst into tears. Sometimes it's just all too much, you know?

    It's nice to be around others who understand though.

    Does anyone know how low we need to keep our bodytemp? I know last time about 3d post 5dt my temp went as high as 38 and i felt like my body was attacking itself but i didnt feel sick but obviously no implantation. Im on pred now so this shouldn't happen right? Ive been taking my temp and if it gets to 37 i will take paracetamol? I'm really worried im going to cook it again

    good luck with the POASing

    @infinity888 Just keep it normal body temp. If it goes up outside of the normal temp range take some paracetamol. It's safe to use when Preggo😊

    @Green lady WhooHoo Luv!!! Sounds really promising to me😊👍

    @Blossom74 Yes...weight issues all of my life which has been the bane of my misery!!

    I was born huge FFS's!!! (9Ib 6oz's) I've gone up & down with numbers on the scale like a whor*s drawers!!!😁 I needed professional help in the end with dietician/doctors etc to be able to stay within a healthy BMI range.

    Maybe WW's again?? Their point system is pretty good. Or trying some of the other suggestions the Girls have made is worth a try. If you get really stuck maybe a consult with a dietician might help just to kick start things???

    @Infinity, I was always under the impression that 37 degrees is normal for core body temperature? In fact, my understanding was that that is the average, and that you can actually vary it by 0.5 degrees in either direction and still be classed as normal. So I would think that anywhere between 36.5 to 37.5 and you would be ok? After that, I agree with @BIB - take some panadol, and keeping your fluids up might help as well. Remember that people still conceive in the desert so I reckon in reality the chance of cooking your emby would be pretty low, unless you go and sit in a spa for three hours

    @BIB, thank you for your thoughts. You did make me laugh with your whor*s drawers comment

    I know at the moment taking on a full-on 'diet' is not the answer. I simply don't have the commitment (despite having the desire) to stick to something restrictive. I've been thinking about this all morning and I think I will create my own 'program' (AKA: Not a diet, just a plan.) Something along the following lines:-

    * No more soft drink
    * Cut all meal sizes by 1/3
    * No munching on anything but fruit, nuts, vegies, and healthy snacks during the day (ie: No cake, slices of bread and butter, biscuits, or cold pizza)
    * Bump up water intake dramatically
    * Plan ahead so I don't get caught out eating cr@p when travelling
    * Try and go for a small walk every day, even if I don't want to and am feeling really sad.

    Hopefully that will kick-start things anyway?

    I went shopping this afternoon. And by shopping I mean I tried on everything in the store and walked out with nothing. I needed something to wear to work tomorrow because nothing I own fits anymore. Apparently nothing I don't yet own fits either though. It's like I've changed shape. All of a sudden everything is super baggy on top and tight at the bottom and nothing looks right anymore.

    I've always been a perfect hourglass - my bust and hips have always measured the same and I have a small waist. Now it seems I am like a block. WTF?! And I feel like I'm all bloated and retaining fluid. Is this the Solone or should that be out of my system now I've been off it for a week? Frikkin' IVF - it's made me way fatter than my normal version of fat....

    Looks like I'll be spending the afternoon trying to shape-shift and find something that fits in my existing wardrobe. Failing that, tomorrow is hereby deemed to be International Naked At Work Day.

    PS: Had very unappetising wheat-type crackers with vegemite, a sliver of cheese and no butter for lunch. Feeling sad AND deprived now....

    PS: @greenlady, congratulations on making so many good-sized follies! That would be a classed as a miracle if I ever made that many.

    Well done you, and for retrieval and implantation.

    @Blossom74 I think that's a fantastic plan Luv Not a "diet" as such for the moment, more like "behaviour modification" Still sux though!! If only we all had the metabolism of a Hummingbird (who has the fastest on earth I'm pretty sure)

    A perfect hourglass shape hey?? How lucky are you??? I've got an "apple" shape myself...and not like a lovely little "Jonathon", more like the large "Pink Lady" variety FFS's!!! In saying that, I've still got a few kg's to lose too to get back down to my pre-BFP weight.

    Yes Luv, I think the Solone will be part of the reason as well as the fact you're still recovering from the operation etc too which probably made you retain a bit of fluid as well Hopefully all the bloat etc will have subsided within the next couple of weeks

    Unfortunately it's not a case of "How lucky am I?" but more "How lucky WAS I." Because I can tell you now the hourglass seems to have morphed into a blob of indistinguishable shape, not at all hourglass-y.

    Sigh. It is a problem. And I still have to go for my stupid walk.....

    I wonder how long it will take the Solone to bugger off out of my system. My Dr did say that he suspected I had a belly full of old blood which still needs to be absorbed, perhaps that is contributing to me feeling like a sponge that has soaked up a bucket of water? He said it is definitely the cause of the cramps I've been having, anyway.

    @inifinty888 I think a slight increase in temperature eg 37.8 is an early pregnancy symptom - due I think to all the extra blood moving around at the start of pregnancy, so if you feel a bit warmer that could be expected. obviously treat a high temperature or get it checked as the others have mentioned. when I was madly googling, I used to see lots of posts of ladies who track their temperature (pre-ovulation and then right through to tww)
    @Blossom74, your plan sounds good. I think the walks will help and make you feel better. I use lite'n'easy meals for dinner. I lost a fair bit of weight when I was in hospital and couldn't eat for a week without throwing up and my tummy was clearing out. which isn't a healthy way to lose weight of course. it did feel like a 'reset' though. and the new gut bacteria haven't been as addicted to chocolate as the previous ones. I still eat it, though I don't have the same cravings or even taste for it as I used to, I eat it now out of habit, and much less, sometimes not at all. I'd given up added sugar in everything, and softdrinks, (though drinking coke is my crutch over the past couple of weeks so I have sneaked some in), and drink heaps more water. I've put on some of the weight but not all. I think less sugar really makes a difference - you can see it after a few weeks.
