    Thanks @Tahli and I'm glad you're slightly better. Did you stop the med today or reduce the dose? Hoping you balance back up again very soon.

    Wazza had me on a lot of stuff, so I'm not quite sure what to take. My new FS said he wanted me on Prednisone, Progesterone and aspirin but wasn't too fussed on the Clexane. At the moment I have 400mg progesterone pessaries that I will use twice a day, I'm taking baby aspirin, and a shi!t load of supplements including 6000mg of fish oil.

    I have some Clexane left over so I could start that if the line is darker tomorrow, and I also have the Nitrodur patches for opening up the blood vessels, so I could put half a patch on tonight, I'm sure it wouldn't hurt. Then I'll go and see my local GP first thing Monday morning and I'm sure she would prescribe Pred. Then I guess I'll see Wazza (I'm still his patient) or my new FS and nut out a proper plan if I have two good blood tests. I feel like I'm really jumping the gun here, but with my chems the line didn't darken at all and even though it is only one day, the line this afternoon is darker than this morning, and darker than yesterday, so right now I'll take that as a good sign and hope it does continue to get stronger.

    @Blossom74 glad that your lurgy has passed now too. Nice that BIB shared her Gastro Diet with you - she's so generous! I'm thinking nice light orange sponge cake with cream and glazed orange segments on top... Yum!

    It sounds like you're a woman with a plan, pregnant @Summer!! I'm sorry that I can't remember, but have you consulted with Dr M too?

    Maybe this is your special little pressie for being such a good DSM.
    PS: Does DH know?
    @Tahli I love your thinking! So glad you pointed that out as now I feel totally justified in buying as many FRERs as I like!

    It's still too early to call it a BFP yet I think, but it is a little promising as my chems never did get any darker like today's did. I knew even with the stress, that I was feeling the healthiest I've been for a long time, and DH is having a totally sober month, so maybe the stars did line up? It would be lovely to think it is a little pressie

    I didn't consult with Dr M. I have the paperwork here to have a consult, but wasn't sure if I needed to do it. I've had a lot of tests and never shown anything significant, and if I do pred, progesterone, clexane, aspirin, and maybe nitrodur hopefully I've covered all bases anyway. I can't do intralipids because I'm allergic to egg, but maybe I'll ask Wazza if there is anything else he'd throw at me - although I have to keep in mind how sick I got before taking so much stuff - but that could have been IVF meds not the above.

    I'll just keep everything crossed this is the start of something, although with my track record it doesn't end well anyway. But at least this would be the first one that has the full miscarriage prevention protocol thrown in.

    ETA: Nope, not told DH yet. Until the line is as dark as the control he won't believe it is a BFP, so no point in saying anything yet! I know it will stress him out as well, as he just thinks pregnant = miscarriage and even more grief, so it won't be easy.

    @BlondeinBrisvegas you can do a sculpture subject online (OUA/Curtin) (it's my next subject (intro). though they seem to teach us making sculptures out of everyday items/objects (& readymades) instead of clay/molding (but I hope to be wrong and hope we get to try some traditional methods too)

    @BlondeinBrisvegas just wanted to say thankyou for your post about what to expect with a hysteroscopy, scratch etc from a couple years ago and the thread by you came up on google and linked here which answered a couple questions I had! As I'm having them in a few weeks. Anyway, thanks 😝 X
