@gorgeousgeorge that's a really long time ours took a week or so max to get results
How may cycles have you done? You need to have some faith in what your FS is saying and if you don't, I'd look at finding another one. They want you to have success as at the end of the day its a business so they want good figures for pregnancies/live birth rates
Yep @gorgeousgeorge that was me. New Foxtel box is now in situ! Add to lastnight's fire, vomiting and diarrhoea I had to take 4 y/o DS for blood tests today. Emla patch went on one hour prior amongst major tantrum, the first pathology place was an epic and traumatic fail with one woman who was a total b*tch, so onto our local hospital where they have amazing ladies to draw children's blood. They were angels. It took 3 of us to physically restrain him. I'm sporting two pretty painful bite marks. Mummy got a bandaid too. Another 2 weeks til the next lot of bloods. Boo.
The local hospital (private) just happens to be the one I wanted to give birth in and the reason I took out PHI. Sure enough we passed a brand new bub and mum in the corridor. I had to bite back the tears. It was like a lightening bolt through my heart. I'll be using my PHI to have a hernia op there next Thursday instead.
My disaster of a cycle continues I am afraid. I only got 9 eggs from 25 follicles and I know I only need one good one but with my usual huge drop off it doesn't look good. To top it off my meds weren't sent to the hospital so Dh had to run down to Warren's room for scripts and sort it at the chemist only to bring it back to the hospital and its all wrong.
Still at the hospital having intralipids its going to a long day I think.
@Tahli yep he'll do a scan. Awe poor little boy, and poor you so stressful for you both!
@Billie2 i know, i know, ive been very upbeat lately but only becayse the whole donor egg thing meant that ive had the last 2 months 'on holidays' from ivf. I hated what it did to me too. I can say though, in my experiemce that you can bounce back and the 'original' you is still in there and she will come back one day. You wait mate, when it gets closer to my DE cycle, I'll be freaking out and posting all my worries. You'll be writing to me, saying, "its ok to be worried". After my last OE failed cycle and the pet chicken massacre, i honestly thought that i had been irreversibly broken and damaged and that i would never smile again. I stopped talking, telling stories, joking, laughing, socialising, enjoying sunny days, stopped gardening, basically everything that brought me joy, ceased to do so. But it just takes time. Sometimes you cant see how you'll ever come good again or when that will be which is so exhausting and depressing. BUT it will happen if you just hang in there xox
You're not being painful Luv so don't apologise ok?? We're all here to help you
Now..to answer your earlier question: On Cycle 4 my FSH dose was 600IU and on Cycle 5 it was 300IU that was bumped up to 400IU for the last few days of the Cycle prior to EPU to get my follicles up to where Wazza wanted them to be before he gave me the ok to Trigger (which I used Pregnyl on both Cycles to Trigger with).
Speaking of Pregnyl...I used Pregnyl booster shots on Days 3, 6 and 9 after embryo transfer on both Cycles as well as Crinone, pessaries and Ralovera tablets and well as the other 150 supplements and drugs on Wazza's Pharmacy of Supplements and Drugs list so he does use Pregnyl both for Trigger and after transfer
