@Heyside what time do you leave the coast to get into the city? Must be a long frustrating drive!!!
@Gen72 - Sorry to hear af is late hun, hope it turns up soon as you said it shouldnt be an issue for your donor cycle. Are you just having a blood test then? No sign of my af yet either, it has to be here by 9am tomorrow if I am going Monday otherwise I will have to reshedule.
@Tinachris - My appointment is 5.30 if af shows up so to makesure I get there with traffic I will have to leave at 3.30am 😴. I am usually pretty lucky with traffic at that time as I beat most of it. With any luck I could even be back on the coast to take DD to school lol but that might be pushing it.
@wishing25 - I always get lower back pain when I cycle due to the meds, it took me a long time to link this though. It usually starts with the meds before transfer and continues through to af. I have a cushion in the car with me as I usually get so uncomfortable on the long drive down to Brisbane, it can be so frustrating.
@Gagingi - Hope it is your final scan hun, thats exciting good luck. We made the decision to travel down to Brisbane for treatment after things weren't happening on the coast, I suppose we have to bear with the trip down there. Its a good job I dont work, it just wouldn't be possible if I did.

LOL spoke too soon...looks like I won't need to go in Monday for BT.
That's great news Gen 😊
Good need Gen72 ✨ Personally I don't get a sore back but I do get quite sick on the meds. I usually get nausea, breathlessness ect. One thing I noticed more recently in aching veins in the elbow joints where bloods get taken. I have difficult veins as it is and only experienced nurses can do my bloods. Sometimes they need an ultrasound scanner to locate my veins and a few times they have made massive frucking ups and made me feel like a pin cushion. I have been told that they are quite scarred due to 8 cycles worth of continual bloods. Does anyone else get aches in that same area?
My af its very frustrating and confusing. Yes it has turned up but it is so light (it has been light but this is probably the worst its been) and bright red pure blood like I had in my miscarriage. I am thinking I will count this as CD1 as knowing my history it might stay this way.
I had my scan today but Warren wants to push my cycle back a little so I can lose a little more lining before I start the meds, think that must mean its a little thicker than usual which has to be good. So I will be treating tomorrow as CD1 and start the meds on Wednesday.
Thanks Chyna I am thinking of ringing the nurse though today as af has practically stopped again as usual it has only lasted 2/3 days. So really not sure how we can call today cd1.
