    @Corbes love it!!

    They could also have the big needle they suck out the eggs with on the cover - that'd turn a few heads in the waiting room! and some REAL info about the offshoots of using crinone

    love the renaissance painting thing @winsor. Great idea for a contemporary artwork
    @Maxwellsmum yep Im with ya on the number of Drs/nurses that have been to my "downstairs". I don't think I even flinch these days.

    @Charlie74 totally agree. I'm on my own in regards to knowing anyone doing IVF. These forums are "it" for me. Family don't know either. I'd rather not talk to breeders (family or friends) who say that they understand because they struggled for three months ttc. I am a private person, though.

    Me too except my Mum knows, when I had my miscarriage at 8 weeks she told my SIL who who then said to me about 2 days post d and c " well at least you found out early and weren't further along" I sat their silently nodding and did not UTTER a single word. Seriously really that may be true but who the hell says that surely there is a million other things she could have said instead. Even a simple 'I am so sorry" would have been okay. It seems that Breeders also lack any kind of tact.

    @Maxwellsmum that's horrible. The things people say.

    @Maxwellsmum Anything that starts with "At least..." when you have suffered a loss and are grieving is the wrong thing to say.
    No, sometimes there is no silver lining.

    I've just received my phone call from Dr M. The one and only thing the tests revealed were moderate NK cells (17%), which I already knew thanks to LB's biopsy.
    His treatment plan for me is Dexamesthasone 0.5mg x 3 p/d, Diabex 1 p/d , Gestone, Clexane 40mgs, Intralipids 400mls. Really simple.
    I told him about the high cholesterol and reduced liver function and he said they go hand in hand and asked if I drink. I said I don't. He said maybe I should start, as it may reverse the problem. His little joke.
    @Charlie74 He suggested doing LB's 200mls one week, then another 200mls with LB the following week, then 100mls in CT (that's all they offer, 100mls). I don't know if LB would go for it though.

    Btw winsor I love the name Grayson. It was actually the only name ex-DP and I agreed on for our DS. It's just that we couldn't use it with his surname.
    ha no, not round figures. I just meant an oil painting painted in classical style/technique.

    That sounds good plan wise and that is good news as in the results. Can you make LB go for it, like sometimes with my FS I just push for things when I want them because really at the end of the day (or cycle) we are the ones paying them all the money and if it fails they won't refund us or take any of the blame. I say make sure whatever you do eliminate any chance of what if thoughts.

    That's great news on the whole Luv😊👍

    Perhaps the change of medication protocol he's advised will do the trick??😊

    Next stop on "Project Sibling" is getting your oven serviced & tuned then you'll be right to go!!!😀

    Can only ask LB if she'll consider doing the intrallipids that way???😐
