Chyna I'm in the middle of doing a bit of the same. I'm swinging @Gen72 a couple of things an swapping some
Meds with @sumteng but in your pic did I see some Melotonin? Charlotte has prescribed me these now to try and get rid of my insomnia. I didn't have to take them this last cycle due to using donor eggs so have no leftovers
And to anyone else out there - I've got crinone (still in date) to give away from one of my OE cycles from last year - let me know if you need it! Xx
Hey ladies did anyone get bad stomach cramps after the embryo transfer? The last few days I've been getting cramping in my guts. Not lower down in my pelvic area. It's been getting gradually worse and kept me awake last night feeling sick. It comes and goes but it's making me not want to eat which is hard cause i need to eat so i can take my meds!
Rosie8888, some of us girls have started a "grey market" to swap or sell excess drugs so watch this space for any spare Crinone that pops up. I still have to do another check to see if I have any other spare meds. Will let you know once DH comes home and can check all my cupboards and drawers for Crinones. I know @MamaKes said she may have had some Crinone (we did a meds swap just this morning! the best part was meeting a very lovely person to put a face to!!!)
It'll be great if everyone can make use of the sell/swap - as much as The Mill Pharmacy is convenient straight after grabbing your prescription top up and a brainless walk in/walk out visit, anything to help lessen these IVF bills would be a small but great relief for all.
Please keep in mind to check for expiry dates and if unsure, ring the nurses to ask how long it's safe to keep stuff after opening if not brand new (like FSH's) so you know it's safe to pass onto the next person. If in doubt, ask the nurses when you receive the meds just to be double sure!
@Heyside @mrsparso you're both doing great and don't be so hard on yourselves. These hormones and side effects have a great way of finding new and adventurous ways of toying with your head!
@Heyside - I'm always astonished how well you've managed to keep up to date with how everyone is progressing on multiple forum pages! If it wasn't for your regular updates and words of encouragement to all the girls, I'd be very lost most of the time so a big thank you. You have no idea how "sane" if feels when I read your posts and you always make perfect sense, so no idea what "crazies" you're referring to LOL!
Just a thought ... perhaps we could drop the occasional vent/laugh-at-self bomb to share?
Eg ... the other night I cried cos DH ate the last of my seedless green grapes (I was craving!) I was saving the last few for my post clexane reward only to find them all gone. Worse, I saw the Coles docket on the kitchen counter and realised they are no longer in season any my crazy DH had failed to tell me he'd been buying the batches at $8/kg cos it was one of the few things I really craved and keep me happy ... more tears and guilt trip *big fat oopies!*
@mrsparso - The cramps could be a positive sign hun hoping so, hope you get some relief though x
@sumteng - Thanks hun although maybe thats half my trouble I spend too much time on these threads sending myself crazy haha! Oh bless your DH still buying the grapes at such a cost to keep you happy - thats love 💓.
AFM - My mood is getting worse with the progesterone, no stand in my way is all I can say poor DD and DH having to put up with me. No other symptoms either which helping things I hate the tww!!!
Heyside whatever works to get you through the 2ww! Try keep things in perspective and joke at what you can. Keeping positive, light hearted and whatever you can to keep busy so you can be as distracted as you can. I remember spending my 2ww asking you lots of silly questions, being a drama queen and just reading up on random stuff. Maybe plan daily easy but fun stuff to do with DH & DD? You're almost halfway there . Keep it up!!!!!!!!
AFM - I've since switch to oranges LOL! Did a scan with Charlotte this morning and all was good.
