    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???

    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

    I'm not surprised you feel all over the shop Luv!!

    I wonder if there's a chance the sack has been reabsorbed into your body by now??

    It's only a "maybe" about the ectopic, but you can always tell your FS you had an appointment with an immune specialist and he felt that there was a possibility it could be an ectopic on your left tube and you were to let him know.

    It's really none of your FS's business if you want to go and get further testing/opinions done. He doesn't have to "approve" it and you don't have to justify it either. I'm not trying to sound harsh, just saying how it is Luv plus they're two very different specialities so there's no reason your FS should be offended etc IMO.

    I think just put your thoughts on hold about everything that's happened today as best as you can..try to relax somehow..with a nice bath etc and try to distract yourself too as well as get the most restful sleep you can and decide how you're going to deal with it in the morning when you wake up

    Hi @Precious40.

    I'm so sorry you're having to deal with this news on top of what you have already had to go through. I wonder if your Doctor saw something on the scan which has prompted this latest investigation? Either way, if he suspects an ectopic pregnancy (and for the love of God, why your FS didn't look for it earlier is absolutely beyond me) then the sooner you get it sorted the better. Ectopics can get quite nasty so it's not something that should be dragged out.

    I remember when I lost my bub back in October. After the D&C I spent about 2 months (no, I'm not kidding) where I was completely fuzzy-headed. I tried so hard to get back to work but I couldn't sit and read or concentrate on anything as I used to. I think it's part of the grieving process - you sort of go numb for a while in order to be able to cope with it.

    What I am ever-so-not-eloquently trying to say is that what you are feeling is normal love. Sending you massive hugs

    aww thanks @Caesardust. I guess we all have similar stories on this rollercoaster ride. at the time I was saying to DP that the first one was like him, the boy as it was quick off the mark but the second was more like me, (the girl), wanting to check things out first then go forward. so I've just always thought it was a girl. but who knows. I hope we get to find out.

    I was naughty and did another test and it's much lighter. but I had drunk nearly 2L over a few hours before and had gone to the toilet only an hour or so early, so I'm calling it a dilution error/anomaly and trying not to stress. I don't think the real line would've dropped that quickly - last time it happened over a few days. (at least that's what I'm telling myself!!) I still have the other 'symptoms' so that's keeping me calm that it's still there.

    I hope your second line starts getting darker over next few days.
