@Loz83 welcome! And all the best for your transfer tmrw!
@LillyM thanks hun, Im currently waiting to see a doctor. Last night was one of the worst, I did not sleep at all. I look like a total mess lol.
I have a feeling the gp wont give me anything because of IVF but we'll see.
Arghh this is so annoying.
Oops posted before I finished writing what I wanted to write..haha
@hopefulangel1987.. sorry to hear you haven't been getting much sleep. I'm not sure if I have useful advice hun. You could put some lavender oil on ur temple to help soothe you to sleep and rub a small amount on ur pillow case as well. There is also acupuncture. Personally I wouldn't be medicated for sleep at the moment esp when ur transfer is coming up.
I know the date of my transfer because I look at my BT results. And having a now regular cycle helps as well.
I hope u get to transfer soon hun.
Son had his party today and im so proud of the cake I made for him, so I'm going to share it with u ladies ( if you don't mind)
Good luck with transfer tomorrow @Billie2 !
@tjuls that cake looks so good, well done !! (im now craving cake thanks lol)
You got your bt results? ☺️ ahh all i got was a text saying next bt on tues lol
Thanks for the lavender tip, ill give that a go tonight.
Well my gp wasnt very helpful, basically put it down to anxiety and said whatever he prescribed could or couldnt affect ovulation etc. I didnt want to risk it so ended up buying Restovit over the counter, pharmacist assured me just taking a quarter of the tablet wont affect anything but I dont know. I think ill just wait a few days before taking it.
Best of luck for transfer @Billie2
@hopefulangel1987..I always get the path labs to fax me a copy of my results to work. For my record and also so I can monitor my hormones.
You can request these with the nurses. Usually they don't disclose BT results.
Yeah GP always err on the side of caution- docs in general.
See how u go with the lavender hun. If it doesn't help, then try the Restavit. At this point, having no sleep is more harmful to ur chances than taking the Restavit.
I saved u a piece of cake

Sorry you're having sleepless nights @hopefulangel1987! I go through patches of insomnia and what has sometimes worked for me was using a calm/meditation app, massage and/or foot massage. All of which could help with your anxiety and give you a nice little mental break from the stress of IVF 😉
Omfg @tjuls - that cake is absolutely amazing. The detail is insane!! Can I commission you to make my son's birthday cake in a few weeks??? Love the birthday message too. Hope your little guy had a great day 😊
Cheering you ladies on @Billie2 and @Loz83! Woohoo!
Omg @tjuls, that's some cake indeed! It looks amazing! Love the pun in the message! I will never be able to make that. Lol. you are such a control freak to have your BT results faxed to you. Ah, the benefits of being in the same med line? Haha! Sat is going to be here in a whiz!
Hope you are feeling better @hopefulangel1987. Sounds like you have had a tough few days. Insomnia is the worst feeling ever. Are you able to take some time off work to rest and recover? Sounds like you need a spa retreat! take care hun!
