    Default Thread crash alert

    Hi ladies, I'm so sorry, I hope you don't mind me crashing your thread (I'm a secret occasional follower/admirer - I suspect you have a few! For some reason I find a lot of solace in this thread as I go thru IVF) ... I just noticed @Tahli commenting about folic acid and MTHFR ... I have the mutation too. My understanding is that the synthetic form (folic acid) actually binds more effectively to the relevant receptors than the active form (folate). This blocks the receptors a little in us who don't metabolise. So it is best to try and steer clear of folic acid. That's what my naturopath advised anyway. I'm sure it's not too big a deal... I suspect it's partly theoretical, I'm not sure how well studied MTHFR is. Good wishes and vibes to you all x

    @Gagingi - it's good for egg quality in the energy sense from what I've read. Full of different types of vit B. I bought some of the 1000mg capsules.

    Thanks Girls... so we hae 2 more that are frozen and being biopsied. . Let's hope they are normal. ... and all the implantation hurdles are also treated with intralipids .. pred etc.. so many hurdles to pass through

    I got late in posting as I had to head to the hospital as I suspected mild ohss.. my stomach got really bloated ... I was looking like 5 months preggo. . But thankfully I didn't have symptoms like shortness of breath or nausea .. so they observed me and I had lots of liquids n I m back home now... they said to come back if anything else different happens...

    This has happened first time with me .. any suggestions ? And does it effect implantation at all ? A bit worried...

    @Sue77 I thought they wouldn't usually do an ET if too worried about OHSS - so I'd have thought they've decided it's okay? That said, I've heard of quite a few girls with severe OHSS who fell pregnant and got their miracles - just a rougher start. I was in hospital for a couple of nights after last EPU - fluids, obs and pain management. They still did 5-day transfer and FS said it wouldn't effect result (as he wouldn't do ET if it would). I had to check with FS before taking boosters, but ended up taking them and whilst the aggravated situation it could be managed at home and is now settling (maybe, a bit) at 6dp5dt. I was told to keep up fluids (3+ litres/day) and to get hospital-grade sustagen from pharmacy and eat plenty of protein (small meals often). Also ensure you keep yourself regular as that will impact bloating and comfort. I find De-gas capsules from the chemist helpful too. I was told to rest, but keep active (no mixed messages there!) - and wear compression stockings. Good luck with TWT and your own well-being.

    2 for testing and the freezer is a wonderful result Luv!!! they come back Normal for you and DH!!!!

    Oh no Luv!!!, that sounded a bit worrying for you!! Am glad that you're ok and it's not full blown OHSS. Believe it or not, I had late onset OHSS on my last Cycle and ended up in the hospital with mild/moderate OHSS I had free flowing fluid in my abdomen, headaches,nausea,excessive thirst, urine output that was dwindling and totally out of proportion to the amount I was drinking plus it turned a darker colour like apple juice, pain in my stomach.

    I went to hospital when I was 17dpo and nearly fell off the bed when the doctor told me (did ultrasound of my abdomen etc) plus my ovaries were blown right up too!! Anyhoo...it obviously wasn't getting 8 eggs at EPU that caused it for me as I'd never had it after EPU on any other Cycle. It was the HCG from both getting a BFP and the Pregnyl shots (although I only took 2 of those after transfer) that set it off.

    As you can see, it didn't affect implantation with me and I don't believe it does in general Luv. Can just make you really, really unwell. The Ladies prone to OHSS (one's who get a high number of eggs at EPU) need to be really vigilant about looking out for symptoms and getting themselves medical help asap if any do develop.

    Just let them know at LB's office what's happened just in case she wants to stop the Pregnyl booster shots etc. And if any other symptoms do develop, go straight back to the hospital

    Other than that Luv...... and prayers being sent your way for a BFFP over the coming days!!!! Am hoping your emby is snuggling in for the long haul right about now!!!

    Grow Emby Grow!!!!


    P.S.. I increased my protein levels and drank Sustagen type drinks (there are some cheaper brands you can get from the chemist) and sports drinks also to help..pretty much the same as @Gagingi.

    Most definitely don't let yourself become constipated!!! Take something for it if it becomes a problem. I personally use Dulcolax drops if the situation becomes desperate (15-20 drops the night before) as I find they're more gentle on the stomach in terms of cramping you can sometimes get with laxatives.

    @JulieMalooley 9.5dpo and stark white negative this morning. As you may remember, on my last cycle, it was later today that I got my squinter.
