One day at a time hon. I know it's hard - it never leaves you. But a day will come when the right path is clear to you
@Charlie74 and @Chiefsgirl Thanks for explaining Dr M's oop expenses, so $650, airfares and a nights accom. Around $1,000...ouch! I'm guessing there's no Medicare rebate on the $650? Can you stay overnight if you have PHI?
Unfortunately there's no way LB would do 2 x 200ml intralipid transfers when she wants me off all extra meds. I doubt she'd even do the 1 x 200ml this time.
So Dex is stronger than Pred. Oh my. Dr M's prescribed 0.5mg x 3 per day, 3 weeks prior to transfer. Do you know how that compares to say, 25mg of Pred? I'm just wondering how hardcore the effects on me would be compared to the Pred. Ta for the Magnesium tip too.
Have any of your immune girls had any feedback on the Diabex? I've never heard if it. I only have to take one per day from CD1. Charlie, he didn't go into too much detail as to why he was prescribing it. Just that there are some recent successes. Nope, I don't have PCOS just boring old NK cells and homo MTHFR.
Thanks for helping out @Chiefsgirl when I know you're having a hard time of it at the moment. Hugs, xx.

@infinity888 its just time I think, you go from being so undone to starting to feel "normal" again in time. For some people it takes a long time and others they just want to jump straight back on the horse and keep trying, I guess its a personal thing. Ive always had long drawn out losses which is excrutiating, either hcg that takes forever to come back down (after weeks of uncertaintity), an ectopic that had me very scarred with anxiety afterwards and then the mmc which only came to the fore at the nuchal scan, even though it hadnt grown from 7 weeks. So I can tell you that its a good thing Im a patient person by nature as otherwise I might have completely lost my sanity in all of it. I always believed that the best way to move forward was to start trying again although I would say that after the ectopic it took a while due to the horrificness of that whole thing. Only you know when you can jump back on again. One step at a time indeed, otherwise anything can seem insurmountable.
How did you go today hon? Any results?
Tahli I believe diabex is a brand name of metformin. I've been taking it while trying to get duffed. I know it is supposed to help with fertility in women who have PCO. It's all tied in to blood sugar levels and insulin resistance. One a day won't affect you too much hopefully. More than that and you might get a bit of nausea/runny bum (I'm on three a day). I've found it very good to help curb appetite. Pretty sure its the only thing that's helped stop me blowing up like a stay puft man.
HCG is 1374. Bloods and ultrasound on Tuesday . Finally
I feel really calm. No more brown when I wipe this last week.
Just happy and calm. Hope I stay like this on Tuesday. Probably have no finger nails left Tuesday morning.
So we wait.......

Sounds great @JulieMalooley! Would you like to email her profile?!! It's a shame you didn't take photos of her in the lift!!!
I just checked an old email from my ED co-ordinator and it says an ED can create 5 donor babies (which she has - 1 x live birth and 2 x ongoing sets of twins) or 5 donations (I was the 5th). I think that presumes the 5th results in a pregnancy. If I don't get pregnant on the March transfer then I'm hoping she can donate again. I know she couldn't donate again if I did fall pregnant. It's interesting that the wording is 'pregnancies' rather than 'live births'. But I'm not sure if Dr W would suggest moving on to a new donor.
I feel sick to my stomach that Dr W may say to stop after the next transfer. I'll be sweating on his email this week. I hope he's happy to take my money and keep popping those embryos back in!!
The Vineyard has just re-instated my booking even though their website was saying it was full so at least I know I'll be relaxed, happy and well fed. Now to swing a massage apt!
