    @Billie2 Yippee Luv!!!

    Not so good about the P4 levels though!!!!

    I agree about banging the pessaries up the backdoor if you have to

    In fact, I'd be sticking Crinone sticks, pessaries etc and plugging up every orifice available with as much Progesterone as possible!!!

    Wonder if it's too late to do any Pregnyl Booster shots this late in the piece???

    Agree you'll have to go the PIO shots if the pessaries etc aren't going to do the job effectively enough for you. I know some of Wazza's Girls have their P4 pessaries compounded in stronger dosages??? Is that an option??? Probably just as easy to go straight onto the PIO shots

    So at the hospital my partner and I had to speak to a geneticist about some results from an amnio I had (when the doctors were trying to figure out what was wrong with me). We sat down in the busy NICU and he was asking us some questions about our family tree. So one of the first questions was "Are you cousins?" wtf? And then a little while later he asks us with a very hushed tone "I understand you used a donor?" How that warrants a hushed tone but the cousin question doesn't beats me.

    Where are you at? Last I remember you were doing some counseling? Or had it booked in?

    What a fruckwit Luv!!!

    What did he think was going to happen if he said the word "donor" in a normal tone of voice?? It's not like it was going to come as a bloody surprise to you and DP!!!!

    What's with the cousin thing??? Did he even read your frucking file before he came into the room and sat down???? I swear most health professionals don't or they give it the briefest glance and skim over the most important bits!!!

    Thats awesome he's doing so well, hopefully he will be home super soon, sweet little petal

    Im doing great, we have our final counselling session next wednesday, Im on synarel sniffing the happy mist (suppress the adeno) and just patiently waiting for it all to start really. My donor and I both have our nurses appointment 2nd week of August (mines over the phone) and then if all goes to plan starting somewhere around earlyish September. Still hoping to do a fresh transfer but if that doesnt pan out with the syncing of our cycles then it will be frozen in october i guess. But I cant wait til october so September it will be!! Im sick of being patient!!

    Whoot-Whoot!!! On the home stretch now Luv!!!!


    Hang in there....you're about to get off the starting blocks finally!!!

    @Maxwellsmum - Thanks hun, here is hoping all goes to plan for my epu, not feeling much at the moment but that is nothing new.
    Oh my god you brave lady I would had to have moved out, couldn't cope with a snake in my house 😨. As for the meds you sound just like me, I have alarms going off throughout the day telling me to take something it will hopefully all be worth it in the end even the extra weight 😳.
    @Billie2 - wow hun what a roller coaster of a week for you, huge congratulations things are looking positive once again. Hope the extra pessaries do their job and put you back on track. So happy for you xx
    @gorgeousgeorge - I have been in the same place as you too hun googling all the twin stuff. A psychic once told me I was going to have twin boys so when Warren told me I was able to put two embies back I put two and two together and made 50 - this had to be it didnt it??? Lol we all live in hope. Thanks hun yes hoping everything alines for me.
    @Bongley - Great that Alex is doing so well hopefully not long before he is home. That seems like a ridiculous comment from the geneticist you would think they would be in touch with things by now.

    @Billie2

    Well done ! That is very promising , just get that progesterone level up & you will get that embie sticking !!

    I can give you my progesterone levels @138 -Unfortunately ladies no Hcg to go with the good p4 levels darn it !

    I had a glass of champagne this evening as I thought I deserved it 🍾🍾

    The Pio shots although hurting a little seem less messy & faster acting than mucking around with the pessaries - think that would definitely get things going for you & it will be more easily tested in blood tests to .

    My FS in Greece felt that a progesterone level of 60 & above was necessary to keep things in place initially - just thought I'd pass this detail on as it may help to know what the benchmark could be . I have not bled for the first time in an Ivf cycle & suspecting that the progesterone levels where never really monitored properly , & I always had very low levels so a new learning .

    Keep going @Billie2 !! Yipeee
