    Morning all. I should be at work but said my dog was needing a vet visit so I could mope a little more this morning and make all the necessary calls to the hospitals and clinics. It's so hard to manage it all at work where there's no privacy. I'll be attempting to head to work in the next half an hour. I feel like I've been hit by a truck today emotionally and physically.

    Hi @Tahli I'm so sorry it didn't work out for you this time. Like everyone else I thought this last transfer was going to be the one.

    I'm wondering whether you have had an endometrial biopsy done as part of your testing with Dr M? From memory I think the biopsy can pick up NK cells that may not necessarily show up at the same level in your blood tests... ie your blood tests can all come back normal but the endometrial biopsy can tell a different story re the presence of nk cells. What dose prednisone were you this cycle?

    Oh, I'm so sorry your fur-baby is sick. I know when mine are under the weather I worry incessantly about them. They are my stand-in babies and the love I have for them is immense, so I feel for you today.

    It is hard to deal with that sort of thing at work too. I remember when my dog was sick with cancer. He did ok for a couple of years and then went down-hill so I ended up having to put him to sleep during my lunch break from work. Needless to say by the time I got back to the office I was a mess, and I lost my shiz in the boss's office and got sent home!

    Hoping your fur-baby makes a swift recovery though, and sending big hugs your way

    Can I get some advice from you girls re weaning off prenisolone please?

    I was on 20mg a day (10mg morning and evening) and when I got my BFN I immediately cut it down to 5mg morning and evening, which I'm still taking.

    I'm thinking of cutting it down to just a single 5mg dose per day from today, doing that for three or four days and then dropping it completely.

    Is that weaning off slow enough? Don't want to make myself sick doing it too quickly!

    I also reckon you've hit the nail on the head with your idea of ex-DH moving out. How can you possibly know how you feel if he is still there living with you? You need your own space to be able to think clearly about what you want and what is best for your LO. You may stay separated, you may get back together in due course. Who knows? But I think therapy, whilst a great idea, can expose a lot of anger and hostility as you try and heal yourself. I applaud that you want to be able to keep that from your DD, and I think you're doing a marvelous job of doing so.
    Thanks Luv😊

    If we do end up working it out in due course believe me when I say I'll be in no hurry to move him back in again either as awful as it sounds😐

    Right now doing the counselling just feels like I'll be going through the motions at this point😐

    I'm at Playgroup with DD. It's the Easter Egg Hunt/break up for the holidays.

    One of my BFF's who I haven't seen for ages is coming over for a catch up & I've baked some vanilla cupcakes for the occasion😊

    Ta @Lolly99. It's just my way of coping, to crack on with planning the next cycle. I was awake from 3.30am to 6.30am weighing up my options. Seeing if I could get the costs down to transfer my final frozen embryo but realistically it's still $3.5k with no guarantee of it thawing or it's quality. Or $12k for a full new cycle with a fresh new ED and SD to see if it makes a difference.
    I've just been doing up lots of costings and timelines. I just can't believe I'm back here again. What in the heck is so wrong with me that I can't get my embryos to stay stuck?!!
    At this point I may have been ready to spend that $3.5k and draw the line...but on the weekend, while I was still pregnant, my DS was snuggled up to me on the sofa gently stroking my tummy. It was as if he sensed his little brother or sister was also snuggling in. (Sh~te. I'm crying. I knew this would happen.) He deserves a sibling to love.
    @Felicity Fox Yep, LB did an endo biopsy and NK cells were present and then that was reconfirmed via a blood tests with Dr M (Sydney). Thanks for the suggestion though. I'll take any help I can get! I moved off Pred this cycle and on to Dexamethasone. I did a few cycles on 10mgs of Pred, then 1 on 25mgs and then moved onto Dex for this cycle.

    @Blossom74 I think the general gist is to wean off 5mg every 5 days.
    @BlondeinBrisvegas I've done counseling and mediation with my ex (DS's Dad) pre and post separation. You'll definitely know in your heart if you're merely going through the motions. I did it so he could move on healthily and and we could co-parent effectively. Going to the sessions really wasn't about me. Good luck! xx

    I was told to drop it every 4 days. If you've been on it for a while, then I'd probably drop to 2.5 as a final dose.

    I had my blood test today. My hcg was 1 and my progesterone was 78. This is my lowest progesterone to date. I wonder if it was because I didn't do the Gestone and Crinone lastnight? I feel rubbish.
