    Do you use the applicator? With my thyroid we live in an 18 degree house, so maybe mine are Popsicles, like my DH and cat?

    Yes to the applicator but no to the cold house😄. I might try putting them in a cooler place.

    does anyone get light headed/dizzy on the progesterone? I'm on endometrin this time (first time), and today I've been dizzy all day. like my eyes are permanently going cross eyed. I can't even watch the screens scrolling without spinning. it's not really heavy if that makes sense (like passing out dizzy), just feels weird. it says this is a side-effect so I'm not too worried, but it's been lasting longer each day. tues was just once, wed morning & night, today mid-morning onwards. strangely it seems to start after I eat. so maybe low blood sugar too?

    "@Tahli apparently a key finding was about improved blood flow, so might be worth considering chocolate as an alternative to the beetroot juice. "

    Yeah, but the study only involved a "small" chocolate bar. Like what does that equate to? A Milky Way. Pffft. If you want your blood to really circulate you need a large share bag of Flake Bites. It's common knowledge!!

    Usually he allows 90 minutes for the first appointment. Based on our first appointment, he: asked about DH and my medical, medication, and fertility history; he went through all available relevant medical results and also got his team to chase up anything missing (as we were with QFG with previous FS he got lab embryo reports as well as bloods, but if necessary I imagine he'd follow up QML or SN as well); he'll check your thyroid is managed - have you had recent BT with full breakdown? (if not would your GP request that and ask for copy to go to WDA?); he'll scan you and examine partner, then go through options and what he recommends - writing blood tests requests and scripts (if necessary) and scribbling diagrams and cracking jokes as he talks, whilst handing you research papers . You can interrupt him with questions and I don't think he'll mind (I think I've done that), but he'll also check at the end, if not throughout if you have any questions. I make a list of questions for every appointment. The nurses also help with interpretation. If you are definite about IVF/proceeding he'll likely take you into QFG and introduce you to the nurses there and probably get some bloods and then you go back to him and his nurses. By this stage you'll likely feel your head is spinning, but his team are great at interpreting and if you go ahead with a cycle they'll give you nicely typed instructions and check any queries. Wazza will then suggest you go home for a stiff drink, but some people head straight to the pub next door...

    He is a supporter of DE and likes to make sure you are aware of all the options. He knows we all chat on forums and is happy if you ask questions based on what you've read here or on the net. He'll give you his opinion, but then it's up to you with what you want to do. I have a lot of faith in him, but if you want to do something to put your mind at rest, e.g. acupuncture or check some obscure gene with a BT, I suspect he'll indulge you. I'm sure if he totally disagrees he'd let you know that too.

    He is very mindful of the physical, emotional, financial and medical implications of IVF and a wonderful and compassionate man and a very dedicated FS. He will tell you how it is and that can be hard, but that might not apply to you. He's very laid-back, but switched on, so I'd be excited and prepared for a whirlwind whilst knowing you are in safe hands. Hopefully he can work his magic for you.

    @Gagingi I rang today and yes its Aug but on the cancellation list.
    My FS doesnt really change it up although we were going to try Menopur this time.. I was on 450 Gonal F last few times.
    Using Melatonin and CQ10 as supplements.
    The DS is young - with the first round i had non fertilize. But im guessing with the new FS i'll have to change Donor too. @infinity888 love to know how you go with your appointment

    Im not sure @winsor, I have had endometrin pessaries once before with a FET and all I can remember is not feeling much at all actually. They stopped AF and are about the only LP support that does. I guess everyone is different and actually each cycle Ive probably had slightly different symptoms from pregnyl or crinone so I think you're safely in the "crazed TWW symptom spotting - what is real?!" territory!!! Its a bloody minefield isn't it! So you must be 8dpo today yeah? I know for me things start happening if its real at 10dpo but even then its not obvious. So its a head fruck basically! Does the progesterone usually stop AF for you? See my LP is only between 10-12 days long, usually 12 with IVF so my wait isn't as really 2 weeks. Crossing everything for you!!!

    @aimie999 is it the 17th august? That was my only appointment and today I got bumped up to 18th feb.

    @Gagingi thanks so much that sounds so fabulous and helpful. I'm looking forward to spinning as usually its in and out in 15mins and it will be ok. Well it hasnt been ok after 7 cycles im over it. My last clinic were lovely though. Cheap and limited in what they will prescribe etc but everyone is lovely. They did get me my bfp but no take home baby so i recon its time to get serious about it and see the man himself. I will have to redraw on my mortgage but im not getting any younger. Fx i need bucket loads of magic. Thanx so much for your wazza support and advice.

    thanks. yeah I don't think it's a symptom yet as it's still too early. I think it's the progesterone— last cycle there was one dizzy spell on 6 or 7dpo but that's the only time I've had this. yes 8do today. yeah the crinone stopped af until about 2-4 days after I finished it I think. not sure what this one does, hopefully I'll never know
