Yeah, the stupid sticks show up a little tiny second line for the first few minutes and then as it dries the line disappears, so by the 10 min mark there's nothing there, just a stark white screen. It's super cruel!!
I guess it's not the sticks fault. It's my stupid body. And this morning I've woken with a sore throat. A sick son and me on 25mgs of Pred...it was bound to happen.
Exactly @Bongley. Why the feck are they not sticking?? What is wrong with my body?? That's absolutely the question that's upsetting me so much. It feels like going back to CT in Jan is futile. How many women have to go back to CT for a forth trip?!
The only thing I haven't done is consult with Dr M up in Sydney...but I don't think there's much that the immune girls are on that I'm not. I'm almost tempted to drop all of the extra meds and try a transfer with just the basics in place! Nope, I wouldn't have the courage but I just don't know what to try next.
What I do need to do is find a way (God knows how?) to get my lining up. That's the only thing I can think of. I went through my notes from my 5 cycles and it's always around 7mm on the last scan before transfer.
Although 7mm's is ok for your lining, I understand why you want to increase it. So maybe Viagara pessaries up the Vjay Vjay in combination with E2 patches?? They *should* be more effective than the Progynova one would think?? Could always down a few of those too for good measure!!
Hi love, the D&C itself was nothing to worry about. I bled for a week, but didn't need much by way of pain relief. I may have taken a panadol at one point but that was it. I felt very tired though, and that lasted about 3 weeks. Probably the result of not just the physical but also the emotional trauma of it all.
AF didn't return until 5 and a half weeks post D&C. It was a 'normal' period compared to previous months. Normal for me though means exceedingly light bleeding. In fact, I don't even get red blood now days, just a scant brown discharge. Anyway, yes, 5 and a half weeks it took to come back.
I kept taking my pregnancy multivitamins (and am still taking them) as well as my folate. I figure that way all my levels will be good in preparation for the next shot. By the time we do try again it will be about 2 1/2-3 months post D&C. In the 'olden days' they used to say if you MC'd you should wait 3 months before you try and get pregnant again. I know it's very traditional but for me I think that's wise advice. I don't want to risk putting an emby into a pre-traumatised body, and am grateful for the little break to heal myself both physically and emotionally. I know time is of the essence at our age, but I want to do everything in my power to give this the best possible chance.
Hugs to you hon. I'd like to say it gets easier but the truth is that it doesn't. I don't think you ever get over something like this. You just learn better how to live with it. Even now I still have days where I burst into tears at the unfairness of it all.
Re: The budgies. Bob is going great guns, but I think Birdie might be sick. She's sleeping an awful lot during the day, and because I've never owned birds before I don;t know if it's normal. Another thing to worry about!
