    Hi lovelies, have briefly hijacked my sister's laptop to say a massive thank you for your continued support. As @Tahli so kindly relayed, we got 3 eggs. I think the smallest one didn't some up to size in time, being that it was only 13mm on Monday. @Tahli, I can't believe when you and I were discussing things a month ago and I said "I'll be a couple of weeks behind you." And now look at me, I've bl00dy jumped ahead of you!!!

    Have been thinking girls, about last month. You know, how I only made two follies at 3mm and 5mm? Being that I scanned on CD10 I am now wondering if, in fact, I ovulated bigger ones earlier. This time round I scanned on CD9 and they said "You must go for EPU on Wednesday." And the cycle when I was getting ready for my FET I ovulated on CD9 as well. Food for thought

    The clinic staff came and saw me today after EPU too. You will recall I have never ever had Progesterone support (despite pleading for it.) Anyway, lo and behold I have been given Crinone x 2 daily this time round! They said (and I quote) "You were not tagged for Progesterone support last cycle, but..." and then they stopped. And I said "But I miscarried..." "And they said "Yes. Anyway, the Doctor has prescribed some Crinone for you..."

    I know there is a risk of MC anyway, but I'd be really mad if I lost baby Blossom because my progesterone levels dipped, especially since I asked for support and never had a follow up BT for it

    I have read over your posts and I apologise - I'm still groggy from the anaesthetic so I can't remember who said what. But to whom it may concern...I'm sorry your beautiful furbaby had to be sent home today, big hugs....to the pregnant ones, LOVELY belly shots! You are both absolutely beautiful. And to @winsor, I am sending all my positive vibes for a great scan on Monday.

    AFM, I will get a call tomorrow between 9am and 11am with the fate of my embies. If all is well, transfer is scheduled for Friday morning (time TBA.) I have no computer but will keep @Tahli informed of any progress

    Hugs to you all, and thank you so much for your support. You have no idea of the strength I got from knowing you are all behind me xoxox

    Blossom

    Hi to everyone else.

    Here is me last week at 33w. I'm not good at selfies and yep I still look small - so everyone tells me ! I think she's pushing everything around on the inside tho, I'm very uncomfortable!

    You're looking great!!
    I can sympathise. I'm nearly 32 weeks, counting down to finishing up at work next week, swollen ankles & sleeping terribly. My reflux is waking me every night, even though I'm taking ranitidine.
    I don't feel like there's much room left in my tummy, but am told I'm small too! Causes me to worry as I haven't gained any weight for nearly 6 weeks, even losing weight last week. At this point I've only gained about 4.5kg for the whole pregnancy. Baby was on track last visit though, hopefully still gaining at my apt this week. I'm carrying quite high though I think. Definitely counting down, but starting to feel a little anxious about baby's arrival.

    Beautiful bump @Chiefsgirl...
    Afm, that was a hard afternoon. My poor old girl is gone and I'm still blubbering on and off. Will put away and clean up all the dog stuff on the weekend. DP even shed a tear which shocked me ! Maybe because I was putting on the waterworks so badly 😟

    ((((Hugs)))) Luv😭

    Let yourself grieve however you need to & take comfort in the fact she knew how much you loved her & the wonderful, safe & nuturing life she had with you.

    I have no doubt she understood why & was no doubt thankful you made the decision now as opposed to later on when things would've been so much harder & worse for herxo

    P.S....Ex-DP & I have our furbaby in an urn here with us with his photo & collar around it so he'll be with us forever.

    I went through a place called "Pets in Peace" who were fantastic if that's something you're thinking about doing??

    rest up @Blossom74 and good luck for your fert report tomorrow. I'm not sure about the falling progesterone being the (possible) cause - from what I've been googling it seems to be a symptom ie it drops off first then levels drop. but it's unclear as so many different sites say different things so I'm not sure which to believe. (hoping this isn't my case now too) but I think it's great you've got the crinone as support (I can feel symptoms coming back so I think some might be from the prog)

    hugs @JulieMalooley, a tough day for you. your pup is at rest now and no longer in pain. keep thinking of all the good times.

    I am sorry Hun, keep in mind your fur baby was loved and lucky to live with you😢.Congrats @Blossom74 on EPU glad all went well and yes good to see they have pulled out the crinone. Not that crinone is pleasant but good for your baby to be. Massive finger cross here for you. @winsor I hope your scan goes perfect we all worry Hun but I know you will be fine. One hurdle at a time babe. I am sorry I have been dragging my feet a bit and I am so far behind I have had a few things on but meanwhile @cheifgirl you look great. I am bigger than your picture and not pregnant at all. I hope I can lose weight if I get pregnant. Does that even happen? I can't see how I could gain at this point...

    @Blossom74 - congrats on a successful EPU! Fingers crossed re fertilisation. I always feel a bit relieved after EPU and try not to think about fertilisation until the next morning.
