Ladies who have had intralipids when did you have them? I've had one lot on day 10 and wondering if next is just if I get a bfp? How long does it last in your system. I'm concerned because my transfer is day 23.
Best of luck today tahli and petal40!
Well, I've put in a call to my clinic this morning for a bit of reassurance.
As you know, I started stims on Monday. That was after I had started spotting on Saturday.
If anything, the spotting now (7 days later) is getting heavier, not lighter!
I now have a fair bit of brown 'muck.' No red blood per se, but lots of stringy brown clots.
I'm worried this means that I'm not responding to the stim meds as I should, or that my lining is all being lost.
Shall see what they say. Anyone else have bleeding/clotting whilst on stims before?
Sorry to have been absent ladies, I've had a rough cpl of weeks.
@Twiglet I'm so sorry for your bfn. It truly sucks and doesn't get easier xxxx
I'm so sorry people are finding it tough going, it truly isn't an easy path that we are all going through. And yep the brochures def gloss over it!
Good luck today @Tahli, enjoy the ga! I love the feeling of going off to dreamland! For dr m to put you on that dose of Dex he must think the nk cells are significant enough to cause problems. In my immune group he's only prescribed that to some hard core cases.
I've tried to not weigh in too much about the immune stuff as I think you all know I'm a fan of dr m! But here is my two cents worth. I'd be looking into someone who says the found nk cells as there were conferences in this way back in the 60's in Europe, and numerous dr's who have written papers and created different treatment protocols to combat it.
My first fs said immune issues were hogwash, the second believed in them and apparently created the bondi protocol. Dr m follows dr beer's teachings. Dr nick believes in immune issues and treats them differently to other dr's. Dr wazza believes and treats his way. It sounds like dr Lynne doesn't but goes along with some of it.
In the end I think it all ends up with where we are at in our journey and what we read and believe. The one thing I have found when talking to people about immune issues is that we are way behind the rest of the world when it comes to believing and embracing it.
In saying that, some of these are hard core drugs they are prescribing and if you don't feel 100% comfortable with your dr and the drugs they want to give you then don't do it. It's a hard slog and you need to commit 100% to it.
Fam I have been diagnosed with gestational diabetes and feel very emotional about it. I said to my mum, why me? It's so freakin hard to get pregnant, stay pregnant and now this on top of it all. Why is it always so hard? Sorry to be such a Debbie downer when I know I have so much to be grateful for and I know every single one of you would kill to be in my place. I truly don't mean to offend anyone.
@Precious40 I'm so sorry this is dragging out for you. You've really been truly stoic through this all. I don't know how you've coped.
@Petal40 good luck for your test today. Is it the 2hr test?
@Blossom I truly hope this cycle is it for you. Losing little blossom was so heart wrenching and you have been so supportive of everyone in here while you grieved and then waited for this cycle to start xxxx
