    So Monday was spent on be phone, paperwork etc already for surgery on Tues. had the op, they removed 2 cysts, cut out the endo, did a hysterescopy d and c and did the dye test and separated my ovary from my bladder.

    I'm now resting at home

    Oh gosh hon, what an ordeal. I'm glad it is over and done with for you now though. Take care and rest up

Just a thought hun.
    Ive wanted to cancel my tummy hernia op every day since Warrens apt last Friday because it's just so flipping close to this cycle. But I'm going in to have it tomorrow anyway because I know a pregnancy would stretch my tummy so much I'd be in agony in the first trimester. It's interesting how I'm only choosing to have it done now that I'm with Warren.
    No, he didn't mention that @Tahli Trust me though, the thought has crossed my mind. The thing is, I have to take 4 of these tablets for 4 days, then 4 tablets for 4 days, then 2 tablets for 4 days etc etc. By the time I wean off them I'll be staring down the barrel of a transfer (all being well) and have to start using them again. Not quite sure about that but will discuss it with my FS prior to starting our cycle.

    I think you're doing the right thing getting your op out of the way too hon. I hope it goes smoothly for you and your recovery is short and sweet

    @Twiglets, your post is really interesting. Some of those things I sort of did last time I had my transfer/got my BFP.

    Whilst I didn't 'practise my breathing' per se, I did make a point of taking a garden chair out to the blossom trees and sitting there peacefully for half an hour a day.

    I also went for a gentle walk every afternoon (and sometimes in the mornings too.) I had some back pain at that point but allowed myself to sit on people's fences to regain my composure (not that I was racing around, but I was just exhausted because...well...it was early pregnancy!)

    I ate pretty much what I felt like but omitted the usual nasties - soft cheeses, shellfish, runny yolks etc. And I washed everything (like salad leaves) extra well. The cat litter was a no-go zone, but for the main part I just tried to relax and enjoy the experience. It was such a nice time for me - until it fell to crap. But that's another story.....

    @Blossom74 If I were you I'd ask your FS about it now. There's no point weaning off just to start again. You mention 4 tabs so is that 20mg in total per day? I've done the weaning off for a few weeks just to start again. I realised (for me) it was futile so just stayed on them instead of expecting my body to cope with the variances. Best case scenario when would your transfer be? I'd also ask him what you'd take once pregnant. Because that's exactly what's going to happen.

    @Tinachris What a kind thing to post. Without a partner you don't get to hear the lovely words of encouragement like you've just expressed. I teared up. A little bit of kindness goes a long way. Maybe you could be my Cycle Partner, kind of like a Birthing Partner, to help encourage me. Are you up for the role? It's been vacant for a long time!!

    @Twiglets gosh you have been through the mill, make sure you rest up and take it easy
    @Tahli isn't it funny, I had you down as a brunette as well! Stunning and as pp said, don't look a day over 30!

    @winsor You made a comment a few days ago and I forgot to reply, sorry. Yes, I'm mindful that on Warrens protocol I might have a higher chance of success. Lets see how The Three Amigos thaw and go from there. I might only end up with the B3ab to transfer. Being inseminated with fresh DS as well was just one step too far. But would I consider doing it before transferring my final embryo, possibly. Fingers crossed this is my last transfer and I don't have to consider it. Oh, and also, I might get really sick on Warren's protocol and only be able to do a fraction of it so I can't get ahead of myself. Thanks for being my Cautious Angel sitting on my shoulder. @BlondeinBrisvegas however.....
