@tegs26 - So glad you got you BT! Looking forward to some good numbers from you on Monday! Enjoy your weekend!
@Billie2 - have you been tested for blood disorders that may have contributed to your haemorrhage? I ask because I am borderline for a blood disorder that means I'm a bit of a bleeder ( Von Willebrands Disorder, in the old test I have it but the new 'gold standard' test I don't). I had a haematoma and haemorrhaged for about 4 weeks with pregnancy #9 which ended with missed miscarriage and a d&c. I am at increased risk of it happening again. I also haemorrhaged badly and needed multiple transfusions with DS' ceaser so it is worth knowing if you have an issue so you and your health providers can be prepared. Some disorders or levels within the disorder also require medication. I do acupuncture regularly, there is not much you can do for prevention but acupuncture is supposed to be good for circulation etc and I think it's helped me.
Good luck with your natural cycles! DS was natural conception during a break between OI cycles(Christmas New Year), I was 42.
My results today are:
I have to stay on 3x200mg oripro and the 3 X 5mg prednilisone. They are pleased that it doubled (HCG was 51 on Wednesday) but the result is still below the average range for 19dpo. I have another blood test next Tuesday to see how it's going. I had a migraine yesterday so I think things are happening.
Have a good weekend everyone and thanks for thinking of me!
BlondeinBrisvegas Thank you so much. I'm stressing and so over it woke at 3am and just been sleeping badly in general. I'm not feeling confident, I have all the usual progesterone symptoms so not reading into anything. So nervous about POAS and seeing my usual stark white!! I thought I may Sunday but I have a big family lunch and a 3month old baby will be there so may not be a good move if it's a BFN!
apologies but I am behind with everyone's news as have been trying to distract myself and avoid IVF topics. Not that it's worked! But I just read your sad news @Tahli I'm so very sorry. @Deskar best of luck with the BT
