    @Charlie74 amen to that! I'm just on thyroxine at the moment, so good to finally come off the meds although I still startle awake at night convinced I've forgotten to take something.
    @infinity888 its hard work now but will pay off in the future hopefully. I took a full time job I didn't even really want (I used to do freelance digital animation) and it was THE best move I could have made. Regular pay, flexible hours and team bonding have really made my life so much easier.

    So gals, I got some bad news yesterday (not me or the bub)........

    Yesterday I messaged my cousin and brother and sister via facebook to let them know our good news and the whole donor stuff etc. AND.... My sister writes back and says don't expect a reply from our brother (he lives in Canada) as his wife has just been admitted to hospital. Suicide attempt. She took an OD of my brothers heart meds, in front of her teenage daughter. Cardiac arrest 3 times. She's on life support, we've been told to prepare for the worst. I feel so sad, I've known her for 25 years, not closely but I've always got on with her. I'm not sure whats going to happen now. I think we just wait to find out how bad she is.
    It took a while to sink in and I was only teary this morning, I feel so, so bad for my brother and my niece.

    Anyway, sorry to be a downer, just wanted to explain what was going on my end

    Am sorry your lovely news has been overshadowed by something so sad & uncertain. Hugs to you & yours X
    Thanks @Charlie74, yes she has suffered from very bad depression for quite a few years now. She was even doing electro shock therapy recently. It seemed to have started after a full term still birth she had about 18 years ago I'm sorry to say
    Sorry, hope that's not too distressing for anyone.

    Thanks everyone. Im killing time waiting for 1.30pm scan. I got the tv for the day at my bed, being optimistic Im home today. My son has been in for a visit & was happy his mum is feeling good. He was very worried. I just want an answer but they said it might be a 1 in a million freak thing. Something undiagnosed that the scapula hit in transfer. They dont know yet. Im still fasting since 11.30pm last night. I told the gyno that my bowels are actually working today, but i haven't been able to pee properly since ET. Hopefully that tells them something. I can accept a failed cycle, but this is my body and my life. The failed cycle is bottom of the barrel in priority.

    @Billie2 I've heard of complications from the EPU but not from the transfer!! That would be so unlucky. It wasn't an ectopic then, that can cause a lot of bleeding?
    Get better soon, geeze the cr@p we go through

I figure April to July/August is a pretty decent stretch for me to get the benefits if there will be any. I'll probably start the Trental next week on a day off... Am a bit worried about it giving me terrible headaches like the nitro dur patches did. Can't wait for the day when I never have to put another strange medication anywhere near my body or mouth!

    Good idea love. I did that for a month too. It's nice not to have to remember all those pills and injections and what-not. Enjoy the break!

    I'm picturing you straddling a pottery wheel, moulding pots out of clay, a-la-'Ghost.'

    The big question is, though, does your DH look anything like Patrick Swayze

    Oh, how awful for you hon, and how tragic for her family. There is not much anyone could do now other than wait, I expect. It would be lovely to think she will come out of it just fine, but I know these things can be terribly damaging so even 'coming out of it' is not always the best option. Sending you and your family massive hugs at what must be a very distressing time
