infinity888 thanks, I'm getting my thyroid checked next week, hopefully everything is on track. How are you doing besides the insomnia?
I can only speak for myself love, but I had to wait until AF arrived, then from CD5 to CD9 I took 50mg of Clomid once a day. On CD10 I went for a follicle tracking scan, and was told to use my Ovidrel trigger the next day - at 'any time I liked.' I then waitied a few days - I can't remember off the top of my head, maybe it was 7 days from the day of trigger - and then they did the transfer. So essentially my 5 day emby went in 5 days after ovulation. My memory is like I sieve but I think that's right, lol....
You don't have to be as accurate with times doing a FET as opposed to a stim cycle. With the stims they are trying to catch the eggs before they shoot into the ether (obviously) but with FET's they just need you to have ovulated around a certain time, not at an exact time
Ive mainly done medicated fet where i take progynova from day 2 i think then scan around d10 or d12 and embyo plopped in about a week later. I do progest from about 5 days prior to et.
@BlondeinBrisvegas I'm so very sorry you're separating from your hubbie. As much as it's a positive step, to create a wonderful life with DD, I'm sure your heart is also breaking.
As you know I've walked this path with a small poppet, so if you need to lean on me I'm here to prop you up. As I'm sure are the rest of the girls. It sounds like you have wonderful family support too.
I was offline yesterday as I was getting together all of my legal paperwork to see a solicitor to finally do our Financial Agreement and Parenting Plan. My apt is this morning. If you need any basic guidance on that front just sing out & I can try to help. You may have already seen a solicitor though and be way ahead of me. I sought informal legal advice first, then we did mediation and now I just want/need it over, thus employing a city solicitor.
Humungous hugs to all three of you hun. The life you and DD will have together will be so very special.
@Charlie74 Thanks heaps for your hive advice. I thought my head was going to explode off my shoulders like a burning rocket! The Bepanthen helped on my legs but unfortunately the only thing that helped on my face was antihistamine, and double the recommended dose.
I'll stay off the Caltrate and Ubiquinol for a week then re-introduce them one at a time. Is the only reason I'm taking Caltrate to counteract the harmful effects of Pred? If so, I don't need it as I'm not taking Pred anymore. Does that sound right?
Hello to all the girls!!
OMFG what gall !!! Just tell her you can't afford it now that you have a $2100 firey's bill. Thats better than just telling her to pull her head in - although she definitely should. I am gobsmacked. Good luck with your scan on Tuesday. @Sue77 wow 3 x normals - I understand your trepidation but congratulations ! From your caution about your oven/lining I'm guessing there is no way you would transfer 2 ?
AFM - I've started growing sideways now. I was happy when they were stacked double decker but at last scan they are now side by side - hence the new shape. DP told me I was getting huge yesterday yay. Its nice to actually look pregnant.
Re the a55-grapes - I got that sucker well and truly under control and after the explosion it has shrunk down to almost nothing. I'm going to be really careful now about keeping the fibre right up and 4-5 drops of dulcolax every few days when I'm iffy is plenty. That stuff is potent ! HOWEVER I started iron tablets yesterday eeep. I hope they don't 'stuff me up' again and
