@HillDweller So great to hear about your BFP & that your feeling well! I love hearing news like this!
I'm in Perth too. Am I able to ask which clinic your at & which one you shifted from? If you prefer not to say I totally understand.
I'm not sure how I feel about our FS & clinic. I'm considering changing FS. Current FS is really nice, I'm just not convinced he has given our case enough time & investigation.
Since all our initial tests he hasn't done any more & has no intention of more until 5 failed cycles.
Girls does this sound normal?
Maybe I'm just being high maintenance :/
Hi ladies I'm a bit behind but so happy to read all the BFPs!
I trigger tonight. I'm just so happy to get to this stage. It's so frustrating having a cycle cancelled!
I'm expecting to feel pretty rough tomorrow, but I'm excited for EPU on Friday. The clinic are letting my embies bake for an extra day and my ET is Tuesday. I hope this extra day gives them more time to grow strong.
I'm unsure how I will feel Friday. Any recovery advice? Bed rest after EPU? I've also heard lots of protein helps?
Thanks @Muchulu1 No, I don't mind, I was with Pivet and am now with FSWA. I doubt very much whether my FS would have done no further testing until I'd had 5 failed cycles. He had already said to me "We try and learn something from each cycle - granted, sometimes it comes down to luck, but I want to exhaust every lead I can after a failed attempt to try and figure out what might have gone wrong. There's no point just putting back good embryo after embryo and failing because we try nothing new." It was one of the things that made me feel so confident about going with him.
He also doesn't treat me like some silly little girl who's a bit hysterical and shouldn't have any input into her own medical care! That was kind of important to me
Great news @mrsh1984 ! Yep, lots of protein (chicken etc and protein shakes), lots of water and Gatorade. Take your pain killers and laxatives if you feel like you haven't gone for a few days - because that makes it way worse! Oh, and if you feel like you're at risk for OHSS, sleep sitting as upright as possible until your bloating has gone down.
Good luck for your EPU! How exciting!
You sound like your in good hands. I like his philosophy. I'm worried if we stick with our guy we'll be doing the same thing expecting a different result. I don't want to be foolish, waste embryos & a whole bunch of emotional energy. Anyway, food for thought! Thanks for your input
@katt1011 thank you. Feels pretty drained these days, like really tired at the end of day , sore boobs and back and not much else.. No morning sickness as yet.
umm my progesterone dropped from 104 to 78 so my nurse said to do 2dose of progesterone pessaries. One morning and one at night. Hope it'll come back up to the 100s.
Anyone else experience this with hgc rising but progesterone decreasing?
Yes Cooki my prog dropped from 75 to 55 with my DS. Hcg going up nicely. They weren't worried, said no problem unless it's under 30.
