But so nice to get home and into my own bed.
Trying to decide if I'll POAS or not. I was planning to do one on Wednesday but hubby starts a new role at his job on wed so if it's negative don't really want to make his first couple of days bad.
How are you feeling? Did you get any signs before blood test that it had worked for you? Will you be getting a second test to look at doubling times?
yay I just received my treatment plan from CFC. Im not sure which option to choose from in relation to medication. Finding out that the leuprolide and Triptorelin injections are quite expensive.
Just wondering whether to carry out the nasal sprays or injections? I suppose the nasal sprays would be cheaper and less painful? Which option did most choose?
I used the nasal spray due to the uncertainty of when I'd be home. That way I could travel with the spray and start it when instructed. I had no problems with it. Made me a little snotty for a bit but just resisted the urge to blow.
A cold on top of flying home is crappy. I struggled with the jetlag at night - was a bit tired throughout the day from being awake for a big chunk of the night. All good now. Except that we now have a new puppy and he's wanting to play at night and sleep all day
I POAS twice. Blood test was booked for the Friday and by the Wed morning I was beside myself so I POAS. The second line was strong enough for me to feel happy. I then POAS the morning of my test - I new the doc would question me so I gave it another shot. Second line was stronger than the first one so a little more confident. Off to the doc again this arvo. Got my followup treatment plan from CFC so I will need more drugs. I'll ask for another blood test. I go back to work in WA next week so will ask for a third blood test on the Monday before I go to check my levels.
Everyone keeps asking me how I'm feeling. I think they are disappointed that I'm not feeling much different haha. The Progesterone is making my boobs hurt but thats about it. My lower back hurts from the injections...will be stoked when they finish. One day at a time I guess.
I imagine a new puppy is like a newborn! Good practice especially after the night time jet lag.
I'm thinking of sneakily POAS on wed and only telling hubby if it's a positive...will see how well I can hold out...
Good luck for second blood test, you had nice strong levels so imagining they will be fabulous today as well.
Did your boobs only start hurting recently from progesterone or all along? I've not really had any symptoms at all except a bit of cramping and pulling kind of sensations but no sore boobs!
It's funny, when I initially did those butt injections the area was so sore if I leant on it but that only lasted a couple of days then it wasn't sore at all. Since I've been home it's hurting again when I lie or roll onto it at night, but don't know if it is due to the cold/flu where everything hurts more!
My boobs starting getting sore from the start of the injections. Hugs need to be gentle at the moment. Also felt like I pulled a breast muscle the other night rolling over in bed.
My injections hurt a little more after I've been leaning on them for awhile. I think in CT we got up and did stuff everyday. Now that I'm home and back to the real world there's a little more tv time and cups of tea on the couch. Wearing a lot of trackie pants at the moment
Offshore chick congratulations on your bfp. Such great levels.
HB all the best for your blood test on Friday. I think it is sounding positive. We took our 1 yr old to Cape Town in April. She really suffered jetlag when we got back & it took us all a couple of weeks to get back to normal. We don't have her with us this time. Poor little bubbas suffer.
ECM I am sorry this time didn't work for you again. I don't blame you for being frustrated. It's just crap to not work 4 times. I know you are talking about surrogacy & I hope this works for you.
petulia hope one you are going ok.
tittle so great you have picked another donor so quickly. September will be here before you know it.
we have been in Cape Town a few days & loving it again. We haven't stopped as so much to do can't get enough of this beautiful place. My first appt with clinic is on Thursday & transfer booked in on Friday. I finished synarel on Sunday & started gestone yesterday. This is our last trip so thawing all our embies. Fingers crossed they thaw ok.
Lots of news to catch up on the thread ! @Offshorechick Congratulations - great news! @Aquinoss77 I used synarel, no problems except for a stuffy nose sometimes. I had a major snotty cold whilst taking it and still supressed me. I paid $195 aus for it .
Well im off tommorrow solo - leaving my 4.5 year old and hubby here whilst I head back for my FET on Thursday. @Luca i might see you at the clinic thursday - I am in CT till Monday if you are still around at all.
Feeling a bit tired , not sure if thats from prednisone or gestone or just the anticipation of it all again !! I have organised for acupuncture after the transfer , but contemplating one before as well. I have been having treatments once a week at home for about 6 weeks - what are thoughts regarding this?
