    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

    Hi to everyone else. Sorry if I've missed anyone there were so many pages to catch up on!

    sorry to hear you have GD @Chiefsgirl and that you've been feeling so unwell. No need to apologise - you're right its one bloody thing after another sometimes isn't it. All you can do is look after yourself the best you can. April will be here in no time at all!
    @Blossom74 I cant help you with those symptoms although I do get spotting for ages after the bulk of AF has gone. I'd say ask the question to the clinic as you don't want to be stressing out. Hope its nothing to worry about

    good luck Tahli & Petal for your tests today. I hope your clinic has some ideas on the spotting, Blossom - I don't recall having any. maybe once whilst on the crinone but that's a later stage. Chiefsgirl, sorry to hear about the GD, just when you've had enough of needles there's more. my sister had this too. it sounds like it's pretty common if that's any comfort. hope you're ok today Twiglets and Precious.

    It's soooooo frucking humid in this Hellhole of a town today!!! We're in for a run of this putrid weather for the next 5-6 days too!!!

    It had better bloody-well storm like they've been crowing about for the last 24 hours or I'm going to lose my shiz!!!

    The aircon is switched on and to hell with the electricity bill!!!


    @Blossom74 That's never happened to me, but being old blood, am hoping that will mean it's just the remnants of last AF working it's way out so a new, thick lush lining can grow

    it's not going to put a spanner in the works Luv.

    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?

    @Blossom74 Hm, I was wracking my brains and remembered I had spotting one cycle a week in. I didn't respond and the cycle was cancelled after the second scan, looking back it was pretty obvious from the first scan. BUT they had put me on a different (short) regulation so they never did that again. Sorry, hope it hasn't worried you too much When is your scan?

    My preliminary scan is on Monday, but I'm meant to keep taking the Gonal-F up until Wednesday and will then most probably re-scan Wednesday morning. This cycle is different as I'm on a lower dose, so not entirely confident!

    The clinic have not called me back yet but I'll be asking their opinion when they do. I suppose if worst comes to worst, and I make no follies, I just try again next month

    Hi to everyone else. Sorry if I've missed anyone there were so many pages to catch up on!
    Yes the 2 hour, done & dusted. Wasn't too bad, but when I got home I had the shakes & was very hot. Just made some scrambled eggs. Now I just have a headache.
    Have you had an appointment with the diabetes educator yet? Hope you are feeling ok x

    I did much better on a lower dose, I hope it's he same for you. I know everyone is different, but I went from getting 2 eggs at EPU to getting 8 on a lower dose x
