I'm not as good on the stats as some of the other ladies, but I got excited when I saw 400. Shut up negative nelly nurse!
@Billie2 - it sounds like your HCG is doubling quite nicely!! What did the nurse say exactly? Did she deliver your HCG and p4 results in a worrying sort of way? When they ring me to tell me my news, they're always pretending to be sad, even before telling me the **** news! Lucky for them I am armed with thousands of poas, I can tell them exactly when my dip in HCG was and when implantation failed.. Unless they said your levels we're bad, which they're not, I would be enjoying the day!! I always thought they had to double every 2 days.. But then, I only figured out my ovulation pains were due to ovulation like 3 months ago.. I am so clueless, I'm surprised I know how to operate a vag..
@Tahli - I bought two boxes on Saturday.. I feel like going back and buying more. Their $21 sale ends on Sunday, 7 August.. Then they go up to $27.....
@BlondeinBrisvegas - thank you so much for the info. How far along are you in your pregnancy or have you already had the baby?
@Rhino - if these damn men stopped hiding, we would have found them years ago and we would have been on the "I keep falling preggers after sneezing, what do I do?".., sigh.
@gorgeousgeorge - thanks Hun. I think I'm paranoid.. I think cos it's a low cost clinic, they're transferring when they shouldn't cos i paid.. I'm paranoid..
@Grace1 - hey there I just had a second failed cycle. I'm not sure what a boost cycle is, but it sounds like my protocol. For my first cycle, I had synarel twice a day a week before period and then started 300 IU of Gonal f (which I hear is the same as puregon) on day 3. By the time day 9 came along, my LH was low and there were only 4 follies.. So they put me on Luveris and increased Gonal
F to 450. I was on stimms for a further 7 days!! I had 8 follies, but only 2 eggs at EPU. I didn't have crinone, but I was given pregnyl booster shots. My HCG on BT day was 17 and p4 was 45.
Second cycle I did the same, but this time I couldn't handle synarel cos it clogged up my nose badly, so I did lucrin injections instead and started 450 Gonal f and also had saizen. Had 15 follies, but only ten eggs retrieved. All PICSI (my request) and Embryogen. Double transfer and a BFFN. On BT day my HCG was 14 and p4 was 88. Waiting for AF so I can start FET.
I don't know about pregnyl.. I feel it's giving me the false reading of a chemical.... But it did take my p4 at 9dp3dt to 437, e2 to 5,500 and my HCG rose to a measly 39. I'm going to ask for crinone instead this time I do my FET. If I had a chemical, at least I'll know it's NOT from the pregnyl.
Pregnyl did nothing by way of symptoms in first cycle, but in 2nd cycle, it made me fart so badly 50 times a day.. DH was going to move out., the poor guy was gassed with my disgusting fumes.....
Speaking of crinone, I read it's not to be used for women who have clotting issues. I have the mthfr homo a1298c, which means I have an increased risk of miscarriage.. Perhaps that's why they put me on pregnyl., apart from crinone, what other p4 meds can be taken, whether by injection, mouth or bum?
AF arrived!! Yay!!!!!!!!! If it was indeed a chemical, it would have taken longer than to arrive! It was only 2 days late! Yes!! Now I get to call clinic and figure out the FET protocol, which they wouldn't talk to me about until AF arrived!
Pregnant for the first-time?
Not sure where to start? We can help!
