I'm still reading along with you all. Triggering tonight. I have three follies after 13 days of stims - gonal-f dose of 300 which is the highest my FS will go. This is my 4th full stim and I only had 4 follies every other cycle (and I'm three years older than the last). FS has made me a bit nervous by asking if I want to switch to IUI, though. We're using donor sperm and it's expensive, so sticking with IVF. I hope it's the right decision!
Btw a good trick for constipation after anaesthetic is pear juice. Sorry @Kathk18 I didn't see your post a few days ago! EPU always knocks me around too. I'm expecting to take things very slowly for a week.
Morning ladies, goodness after my EPU yesterday I've woken up this morning after a 12 hour sleep incredibly stiff and sore all over. My back and all my muscles really are so tight. Has anyone heard of this? Just having some magnesium now and a hot shower.
Numbers update, so I got 8 eggs, 5 inseminated and this morning 4 have fertilised.
7dp5dt. Last time this was the day I got a feint positive (although it ended in a chemical). Tested twice today - nothing even remotely resembling a second line. Also a bit of brown spotting. I'm not feeling confident at all
Hi all hope you are all well. I am feeling bit better after EPU but still constipated and bloated. I'm due to start crinone tonight and wanted to ask whether this needs to be done at the same time every night..? I've been told just before bed but wanted to make sure..
AFM: I'm now onto stimming as I did my first shot yesterday. Was nervous as I hate needles but that was a walk in the park lol. First scan is Friday to see how I'm progressing.
