    Now onto the important stuff so last night I had a freaking snake in my kitchen and the thing slithered in behind my power points so no catchers will come and get it due to the danger of the electrics. I don't know what it is with me and wild life this week earlier in the week I had a baby kookaburra sit outside my window for two days straight crying at me. Now in hindsight the bloody Kookaburra was probably trying to get to the snake. Oh god how am i going to sleep with a snake in my house

    Don't go starting all that sh!t up again FFS's Luv I beg you!!!

    now that you've cut off all access points back into the house, it will pi$$ off back outside via a gap in the roof somewhere!!!!

    Why can't the snake catcher throw up a steel trap in the roof (like one they use for a possum) and bait it with a bit of food and try to catch it that way???

    Default IVF over 40 #35

    Years ago I lived in a townhouse with a dog door and a goanna got in the house! I was stuck in the backyard until my friend got it out. She is still my hero lol. @Maxwellsmum I would be going around and taping up every gap to keep the snake out! So glad you got rid of it! How frightening!

I am no way, no how doing that as I can't risk a containment fail and it getting loose in my house again. The catcher said if it can't get out it will die in there but I am like "oh well, I tried my hardest".

    I just went and added on a few more layers of duct tape and I swear I heard a hisss. I might call a pest company and some electricians tomorrow.

    Oh goodness @Deskar we have a goanna too that comes and goes outside of the yard and they are vicious things. It always rears up on its hindlegs at my dogs.
    reminds me of why Im a city girl!!

    Thank you for all your well wishes, baby dust and support. Hope you got a surprise @Lucky8 , I know I did. My beta has doubled to 125, but my progesterone has more than halved to 19! Im starting 3 x pessaries a day. My body isn't absorbing the Crinone as its coming out in my blood. My bleeding has eased but still bright red. No more clots.

    I expect and am prepared for the worst, but hoping for a bloody miracle at this point.

    Ive had that brickies back pain all day and my chest is still full and Im tired as hell. No more cramping today. But I wish I knew all this before as I played 18 holes of golf today and took our our pup for a big walk/run. I also skipped crinone this morn as I had given up because it was just falling back out.

    I know its been mentioned on here, but should I put the pessaries up the exit so it doesnt come out with bleeding? Any tips? Please share!! I dont even know what pessaries are.

    Hi everyone, just subbing in, im away for work atm so havent had much time to bubhub, soz. @Billie2 yeah, dont feel stupid, when i had my last round of ivf and was allowed to transfer 2 embies because clearly id failed enough times and my embies were so crappy that nobody, myself included, thought theyd work, i still went home and googled stuff about twin births, how to breastfeed 2 babies and rearranged all my baby names so i had good matching pair names for boy-boy, girl-boy or girl-girl twins. Sigh...so even though i 'knew' neither of the embies would take AND i was already organising donor ivf, i still had a tiny bit of hope and still had dreams. I understand that. I cant imaging what its like to see two lines and then be disappointed. Sometimes i think im lucky to never had a bfp than to get one and have it taken away, so i really feel for you. Sometimes id be lying there, legs up in the stirrups thinking this will never work but then id say to myself, "then why are you here now and why did you pay 5k to do this if you're so sure it wont work. Hope is a b i t c h sometimes. @Heyside still hoping all goes well with dates, epu, pgd and all your dominoes my friend. @Maxwellsmum Snakes in the house OMG!!! Havent had that one happen to me yet. Maybe get a mongoose and get a whole ecosystem- food chain thing going on in your home? Or move to where i am, temps below 5degrees so all the snakes are asleep hibernating.
    P.S. The greeks and Romans considered the snake a powerful symbol of fertility so maybe its a good omen?

    @Billie2 - that's great, there is hope! The pessaries are supposed to be easily absorbed. I only just stopped them this week after my FS advised me I didn't need them anymore. I was on endometrin. The night time pessary is easy because you put it in and then lie down so it doesn't fall out - however the next morning I always got a lot of chalky gooey white discharge. I would try the front exit first and see how you go and then resort to back exit if needed like @Blossom74 would love to do.

    If you still have absorption issues I would ask about progesterone injections.

    @Billie2 that's good news, do some Valium and shove some pessaries up there. @Maxwellsmum that would freak the **** out if me. I hate snakes! And huntsmen! I'm glad you are starting again, why are you on fsh does that help with frozen transfers? @gorgeousgeorge you on camp, how the food? AFM nothing much going on trying to do 10,000 steps a day but only managed 3,500! Grr need to shift ten kg, that I've put in since February. So depressing to be over 100kg now
