Precious40 I'm just tired, I don't even have the sore boobs so don't worry about symptoms too much. I'm wondering what you'll be able to see in a scan at that HCG level, sounds too low to see a heartbeat yet? At least you'll be able to know if its in the right place and if there is a yolk sac and fetal pole (I am guessing)
@Precious40 - I hope you can have a scan soon. You seem like you're dealing with this limbo really well, much better than most of us would be. At least you are busy at work. I'm having a very slow start to the year and it's not helping my extensive consultations with Dr Google.
@Maxwellsmum- I would have had to go and sleep somewhere else. Give me a spider or even a mouse any day over a cockroach. I'm not Australian born and had never seen one until I came to Australia. My dislike of them is pathological.
I really hope it works out for you Precious and you're just a low-level-at-the-start hcg lady. are you on those meds that mask symptoms perhaps?
eww cockroach. when I was a kid we were at a picnic in the bush park and a little bug went in my ear when I had a nap. I haven't slept without hair covering my ear since.
tuxcat, good news for your friend after their ivf journey but yes, it can be hard to hear at first. hugs
I haven't been answering about the meds questions as I don't know about these. I hope you all get the right doses/timing. I too think the lining is the least of our worries and everyone here's lining will be perfect.
It was big and brown if I had a DNA or could PGD it then I swear it was the same one that crawled on me the other week. Looked identical I thought I would have gotten him with the bomb I let off anyway safe to say he is in cocky heaven now after me madly chasing him around my bedroom I finally got him crawling up my curtain. Got hubby to flush him just to be safe. I don't think there is a way to entirely get rid of them I live in a remote area in the bush near the beach so I get all kinds of weird and wonderful friends. Wolf spiders have been found sitting on my pillow, my cat killed a brown snake just before x'mas it was under my car.
@Precious40 you are being so strong! I would be going nuts by now!! Don't stress about symptoms, I only had sore bbs & lots of peeing at that stage. Hang in there lovely xx
DH & I were listening to a radio interview on abc radio national a few months back about ivf. They were generally encouraging women to freeze eggs earlier, because of the decline of egg quality as we age. I'm pretty sure I remember them talking statistics & saying that a women at 38 usually has to go through about 20 eggs to get a pregnancy. The story was really aimed at the ivf industry misleading women about their real chances of having a baby. And aimed at women who found themselves single in their 30s & encouraging to freeze for later use. It was super interesting actually, and there is a podcast if anyone was interested in listening. The story was called "Cold Comfort". They talk to a very interesting ivf researcher named Lord Professor Robert Winston.
saw this article the other week:
"Women Can Make New Eggs After All, Stem-Cell Study Hints"
perhaps one day in the future 'old eggs' won't be as much of a problem
Pregnant for the first-time?
