I've got Making of a Murderer on the list, but currently we are powering through Masters of Sex, which I'd also recommend (I'm not finding it IVF challenging).
BlondeinBrisvegas you are living dangerously! I can't believe you posted that either!

@Blossom74 - this is probably redundant, but have you checked all your outgoings to see if you can get a better deal on electricity, phone, insurance etc? I know it won't equal $100/week, but every little bit... Plus cash in fly buys. I do that every few years and am amazed at the savings we make.
What sort of work do you do? What interests you? What quals? (Not to pry - just trying to get ideas). Having no idea about above: Research assistant work can be very flexible. The girls that take bloods at my clinic aren't nurses, so I'm not sure what training you need... or reception - Sat/Sun morning shifts? A few friends have done cleaning too - good workout and potentially under the table. Kitchen work at hospitals/nursing homes? Tutoring. Lollypop lady (around kids though). Home cooked meals - some people pay somebody to do fresh cooking for them. Electoral commission will be wanting staff for polling booths with election later this year. Also census year, although ABS is trying to go digital (they'd still be a lot of work though with non-computer savvy residents).
Pet care suggestion was a great one too as that seems to be a booming industry.

@BlondeinBrisvegas just poping in to say hi and sending as much support and hugs i can muster your way. You have be so kind and supportive to me that I couldn't go past your post without saying im thinking of you. Your dd will be more than ok with you as her mumma regardless. Take care.xx
So with my first two FET's I took the estrogen tablets and around day 14, I think, they measured my lining with a scan. Then they start you on progesterone pessarries around day 21 and you have a blood test before transfer to make sure your levels are high enough. No ovulation tracked or anything. I think if you achieve a pregnancy then the tablets are taken for a fair while after that.
With the stimulated FET I had to inject puregon and did regular scans to measure the lead follicle. My dose was increased until I had a lead follicle then was triggered with ovadril (around day 23 it may have been, quite a long time) then I had two booster shots of ovadrel during the TWW, no other support meds other than the immune ones.
Hope that helps.
