The only thing I was told by my FS to take was my Elevit, and a Megafol tablet. If you're going to bump up your calcium I'd ask a pharmacist first. If your diet is adequate and you're already taking a multivitamin, I'd want to just check that additional calcium is ok to take.
Yes, hon. That's what my FS and my OB/GP told me to take. The Megafol is just a bumper amount of Folate which is important at 'our age' apparently. I think a lot of the girls on here take it.
If you're using donor eggs though (I'm sorry, I can't remember if you are using DE or OE) then you may not need the Megafol. I'd recommend asking about both when you chat to your FN.
Am feeling VERY excited for you hon Good luck with your BT results
@BlondeinBrisvegas thinking i will probably do scratch and flush in wazza rooms instead of hysteroscopy due to cost and cant get anyone to pick me up from hospital on day of hysteroscopy after GA grrr. So 2 questions 1.can i drive myself home after scratch and flush? 2. I usually get epu done on gas and endone /valium no GA and it really is ok no pain for me so will that combo be enough to get through S&F and will i get through pain. P.s im usually a sooky la la with pain
@Tahli I have everything crossed that this is the one for you hon!!! So excited that your lining looks good, you've had some time between transfers, and you've done some new meds that I'm sure will get you across the line. I hope the next few days are just awesome for you and your little emby snuggles in tight
@Blossom74 goodness it's not long now until you can POAS and confirm that Baby Cakes is in for the long haul!! Good on you for being realistic and not POAS several times a day as I am prone to do when the timing isn't even right yet. Once you get that first line I'm sure you'll have plenty of opportunity for multiple testings per day
to everyone else!
Blossom OE so I will ask if all goes well thx so much
Hi @Lastround I'm not sure if you are taking any corticosteroids like prednisone or prednisoline - lots of ladies take it for immune issues during ivf and pregnancy - then you need to take extra calcium.
