@Charlie74 my AF after I turned 40 was 3 days of moderate and 2 days of spotting. My lining was always around the 9mm mark at the last scan before transfer.
This reminds me when I was talking this stuff through with my counselor she was very reluctant to say 'genetic mother' preferring just 'donor' or 'egg donor' with 'mother' firmly being the woman who raises the child. But when referring to siblings she was quite happy to say 'genetic siblings' I guess that is different to brother or sister. It's all so confusing! Mind you, I think my donor would be horrified to be labelled 'mother' anything, she's admitted she's not terribly maternal.

@Aimee999 fabulous news on your golden lovely. Fx for a smooth transfer. Is it day3 or day5 transfer or are you hoping to pgd. As for your mum its tough when who is supposed to be your greatest allies becomes your weakest link. Like @greenlady said sometimes you learn what not to do. My mother and I live close in location but i see her maybe 3 times a yr at best. Very different people. Always have been. My mil who is stauch catholic and is funny about ivf comes over 4 months ago to tell me all about immune protocols including intralipids that she had researched and offered to pay bless her. Definitely wasnt expecting that. We are here to support you whenever you need. Good luck.
@Tinachris thanx for the ginger tip my symptoms have lessoned all by themselves now. Not sure if this is good or bad. Im having a E2 and P4 level bt on monday so i guess ill know then. I hope you're feeling ok today @Blossom74 how exciting to you. Very deserving of a quick pd. @Charlie74 i got af at 9yo yep super frigging early. Always heavy day 2 to 7 then d I sappear for 2days then return for 3. Post 35 af for 3days go away for 2 return for 3 spotting last 2 days really. Post ivf its about the 3 to 5 days moderate flow and spotting. My lining is always great. Even post scratch and flush which caused quite heavy to moderate flow for 7days then light spotting for 3days and lining was 10mm at trigger day. Hope this helps. @Summer where are you lovely. Are you ok? What did fs say. Thinking of you.
OK, I'm calming the farm now! After the rush of getting ad approval, posting it up, and dealing with the excitement of it all, I think I'm ok!
It was funny, after weeks of nothing all of a sudden I was on full-tilt with it!
Can't wait for the next exciting step I'm starting to feel like this may actually happen for us....
@infinity888 yes mine have settled down too. I have another pregnyl booster due tonight so expecting side affects to start up again following that. What's the blood test for? Does it tell you earlier than tww? I don't know what to do really, mines due on the Monday May Day holiday, so if I wait till Tuesday to get it I'll be out of progesterone and crinone by a day. Don't want to buy it all preempting something then it's a negative and I've just bought all that. Do u reckon they'd let me do a Friday blood test or too early?
these days I get spotting 1-2days prior, then light-mid day1 (full bleed), heavy day2-3, mid day 4, then it's doing like yours - either spotting for day5 and coming back mid-light days 6-7 (where 7 is spotting/very light as it finishes)
so it's changed since I was younger but still consistent in the new-mode now if that makes sense
