    Well I finally went and saw an immune specialist this morning. Had seven visals of blood taken ANA etc..... That part was kind of exciting. I can see some answers coming

    Then he wanted to do an ultrasound as I was answering a few questions
    when was last period. Are you regular. Are you pregnant etc
    I was very nervous. I did say I'm having one tomorrow to check everything...
    So I had an ultrasound. Nothing in there. Then he says it maybe be ectopic on the left tube... WTF?? Would I like to book in Thursday to have a lap and he will get
    it out while he's there!!? At this stage my head is spinning. I can't comprehend anything
    Like I said not what I thought was happening today
    I'm even more nervous about tomorrows bloods an ultrasound. If they don't pick up the ectopic I'm to tell them he said.
    I've never seen another FS and now I'm a bit scared....
    My head is all fuzzy atm

    Well I'm confused now...
    I had bloods weekly I think. My estrogen was going up nicely. I remember I was comparing it to a fresh cycle too...
    4 x 2mg progynova daily
    triggered with 400mg x 2 pessies (up the bum)
    last scan was on a Friday. Transfer was on the following Thursday

    I had my DE fresh transfer, so not really a FET. But same protocol

    thanks @Precious40. jeez, that's a bit much for one meeting. I hope they can work out if it's ectopic or not. I'm not sure what's involved. so he could see it in the scan? hugs, this is not what you need now

    Charlie if it's any use, I had 2 BTs for my natural FET before transfer (day10 BT, day12 BT+U/S) & then 1 2 days after transfer (to check P4/progesterone). I'm not sure what they checked on the early ones but the levels were dependent on it going ahead (and why in cycle4 when we tried to use the frostie cycle was canceled due to my levels being out of wack). maybe you could check with them again? or does the medicated FET mean they know you levels already? (I thought they'd need to check)

    Last cycle without the nitrodur & only 8mg of progynova it was 6 on cd14. So the extra crap has made zero difference basically

    So now I wait for a nurse to call me with any further instructions.
    I feel your pain @Charlie74 that stuff seems to make zero impact for me too. It's so weird!! I hope they can just give you more time as it is growing just slowly. Sooo frustrating. Hang in there.

If I can get my lining to 7 I'll accept that Bcos Dr M said on Saturday that it should ideally be at least 7.

    If we cancel this cycle, I feel a bit like I'll be sacrificing the immune treatment for the lining.. Bcos I can't see myself going back next to Sydney next month for another dose prior to a new transfer date.

    from everything I've read, it seems like the effects/benefits of IL range from 1 wk- 5wks.. So I would feel like another transfer next month would require another lot of IL.

    It's almost too much to think about. I feel like I could go round in circles every month hoping my lining improves.

    I think if it's not much more than 6 on Thursday I'm gonna be asking if it can be pushed a bit longer & see what they say. I would definitely try viagra, but I don't think LB will offer it. You can't have the nitro dur patch & viagra together so I'd have to stop the patch (no biggie). But I don't think it'll be an option.

    Dr M has advised to start clexane a week before transfer. Problem is I don't know when transfer will be? I'm not necessarily gonna know 7 days in advance of my transfer.. If they tell me on Thursday that its Tuesday then that's only 5 days before. I'm wondering if I should ring him tomoro and ask Gweneth to ask him whether I should just start taking it now- just incase.. Plus maybe it'll help the lining too I suppose..

    Oh my head... Too. much. thinking.
    I feel like I'm reading my past couple of weeks here. I did all of what the ladies are suggesting. An extra patch, a couple of progynova in the vjayjay and increased oral progynova to 12 tablets a day and I got over the line with 7.3mm. I'd say go for it and see what Thursday scan shows. I also did clexane from day 3 this time as I figured it may help the lining. The problem with waiting for a thicker lining is that it can reduce the quality of the lining as it gets 'old'. So I would do whatever I could to increase it before Thursday imo. Good luck.

    @Precious40 this just seems to get harder and uglier. It must be so difficult to have to make these decisions when it's so raw and also confusing. I hope these fs' can sort it out amongst themselves and guide you cautiously and clearly. Wish you the best tomorrow luv x

    @winsor your second line is all the more amazing now I've heard of its beginnings. So crazy happy for you and got everything double crossed that the line continues to darken. Has anyone ever thought it was weird the line is only ever pink? Always makes me think it's a girl.

    Yep..give him a call tomorrow and while you're at it, you could find out if Dr M would fax over a script for Viagra pessaries to a chemist of your choice??? Do they have to be compounded??

    He might tell you to start the Clexane tomorrow instead Luv. Prob better to start it a few days earlier than later though it goes into your blood ****** right away so no doubt 2 days really wouldn't make a discernible difference I wouldn't have thought???
