@Lolly99 they are just perfect. Congratulations mum xo
thanks @Bongley. yeah not sure what we'll end up doing yet. I hope your pain abates soon. I had my appendix out last year and my recovery was horrific - the op was ok but afterwards, what a mess. whole system reset & had to wait for everything inside to flush out. pain at the start as they had a drain still in me. I think they'd mentioned something when I was vague from the painkillers. couldn't sit up as it would pinch inside (or something, felt like that). when you're feeling better, keep sitting up and go for short walks. so you don't risk the fluid on the lungs too like I ended up with. keep those socks on too - they help. do you need a hand with anything?
Tinachris, I'm late in replying, but for what it's worth... I used DHEA and all of Wazza's magical pharmacy including metformin and Inofolic. I found over the six months I was on it all that we got better eggs and embryos. In our first cycle with Wazza when I'd just started on his meds (we started cycling at our first appointment), we got marginally better eggs/embryos and that would have to be attributed to his mix of FSHs and maybe SciTropin. Then each cycle we got better results with our best being about six months post starting meds. If I were cycling again I'd definitely take DHEA.
I slotted you under September as @tuxcat said after I read your post saying that you'd decided to push your Cycle back another month to September or did I misread it??:?
winsor oh you poor thing! Yeah, I had two drains, the last one should come out tomorrow. Dragging them around has been delightful! My partner is doing half days at work, so that helps.
@BlondeinBrisvegas bub is really good, breathing on his own, has a feeding tube. He'll be in for a few weeks. He's so beautiful, I really can't imagine my feelings being stronger if he had my genetics. It seems trivial when you have a little human being in your hands.
