@Charlie74 hoping you get 3 at least. Stalking for updates x
Hi ladies, I've been reading along, but have been so exhausted I just can't reply.
There was some discussion recently about telling bout ivf/de or not. We have told a select few about de. The management team at my work know about de. I have ended so much time off work, so I wanted to be honest with them.
The staff at my office, I told them I had immune issues and had been doing ivf for the last 2.5years - explained my absences and I wanted to be semi honest. And in doing so I had one of the staff come up to me and ask about ivf as he and his wife are about to investigate fertility issues. So I was pleased that I was able to help him out with info, something I didn't have when I started out.
@Tahli I think you asked about vit e? I continued taking it till about 12 weeks then stopped. For no other reason than I am sick of taking pills!
I hear you, the ladies who are struggling, it is so hard to pick yourself up after each bfn. That hopeful feeling that crashes and burns and leaves you in despair that you will ever get your bfp. I know I had to force myself to do each subsequent cycle and truly became a bit manic about researching what was wrong, why wasn't it working. I think it was actually a relief to get the pgd results back that I had no normal embies, I could finally close that chapter and look ahead to something that had hope again. Everyone makes their own decisions about when to end, when to move on to de/donor sperm, and it's always a different reason/catalyst for each of us that gets us there. There is no right or wrong answer to the question of what's next, it's what is best for each of us. I know for me, I have no regrets about de and my bubba is mine, completely.
I had my 19wk scan yesterday and all is doing well and we are having a girl, DH is over the moon, and so am I. Although to be completely honest I wouldn't have cared either way, she is on track and that is all that matters.
I'm going to be offline for a few days, my god mother has passed away and so I'm flying back to NZ for her tangi(funeral) tmw. I won't get to my home town till 3am on Tuesday and the funeral starts at 11am. We will have to get welcomed onto the Marae, so will need to be there by 10am, so it'll be a long day. Flying back Wednesday evening. -fleeting trip and I'm back there in a month for Xmas!
Sorry I haven't been cheering you all on, I have been following though and am here if you ever need me, I'll try and read the daily emails so I don't have 500 posts to catch up on when I get back😜
Don't give up hope ladies, your time will come xxxx
For those who gave seen dr m in sydney ive got his questionaire which i will complete tomorrow. I haven't really had many bt looking at immune issues so I'm assuming i can get him to complete referral for me and get them down here???
Awesome thats what i thought.
For those who have weaned off prednisone, I've been told to cut my 12.5 mg in half for a week then just stop. I thought it had to be much more gradual?
