    @Caesardust - Exciting to be moving forwards hun x
    @pkgjmg - The tww is awful hun the achy pains sound positive hun but as you say it could be the progesterone, its the not knowing which is the wirst part. Hope the rest of your wait goes smoothly x

    Good luck today to all those ladies doing EPU @Grace1, @skeeter and @Angel111 hoping for good numbers for you all x
    @LillyM - Sounds like your fs is really thinking about your individual case pushing you a few days hooe it does the trick and you get good results on Friday x
    @pingc383 - Hun remind me where you are up to in your cycle do you not have transfer on Thursday (sorry loosing track). I think lining scans are best done before ovulation as the progesterone changes things.

    AFM - Not feeling too much in my tww now, this is where my positivity drains away. The cramps can all be put down to the progesterone which was sky high at 780 on Saturday so its not suprising. In my head after this crappy cycle I did want a rest and think its probably needed but this is the point where I just want to get going again I hate waiting so who knows what we will do.

    This is a message that is long overdue! A big to all of those lovely warrior women still on the thread from when I was actively posting, and a huge hello and welcome to the many newbies who likely haven't seen my name before.

    Just a little bit of history for those who are wondering who I am and why I'm gate-crashing the thread I was very active in here for nearly three years, but took a break from BH in about April after a chem that really upset me.

    I've lost five babies between 6 & 10 weeks - (four completely natural pregnancies of five bubbas at ages 42-43) and have had about five chemical pregnancies since as well. No reason has ever been found for my losses as they were all different, but I do have MTHFR, but no other clotting or immune issues have been found.

    After my last pregnancy loss two years ago I decided that natural wasn't going to cut it, so started IVF so that we could PGD and hopefully find a normal embryo. I thought that falling pregnant naturally every few months meant that I was quite fertile and would be a great candidate for IVF. Wrong.

    I saw Wazza and did his whole kitchen sink protocol but found out I am an extremely poor responder and only ever created one egg, so I didn’t feel that it was worth ever going to EPU for a potential one egg. I also got very, very sick on all the meds and it’s taken me nearly a year to recover – I very nearly lost my life over it, and during that whole terrible couple of years I did lose my business, my income, my health, I had many, many friends betray me and turn away from me when I was at my lowest in grief, and I almost, almost lost my marriage as well. So I ended up in the pit of despair and have had to climb back out again – which I’ve done successfully

    After my last chem earlier this year I decided to do one more round of IVF (my sixth) in May – low dose – and after initially seeing four good follies, I ended up at the same place – only one decent follicle at the end so cancelled EPU. I did a pregnyl trigger to see if we could conceive naturally and that was the one that made me very sick. I was bedridden for two weeks and realised that this whole IVF caper was never going to work for me, so I closed that door. DE was the next option, but because of the stress, illness, finances etc my marriage wasn’t great, so I wanted to get that back on track before we decided on DE options.

    In July I went away overseas for work for nearly a month and in that time did a lot of healing work – as did my DH. When I came back it was like we were when we first met and our marriage is now going from strength to strength. I was due to ovulate a couple of days after I came home and with all the “reunion loving” we certainly would have saturated that eggy!

    Then this happened:

    2016-08-15 11.34.50 (2).jpg

    I had a blood test yesterday to confirm and my levels at 3w5d are:
    hCG 28
    Progesterone 76

    So there we go, a totally naturally conceived pregnancy at 45.

    I’ve talked to Wazza’s nurses and he’s calling me today to get me on a support program of prednisone, clexane, baby aspirin and progesterone. I have all but the prednisone here so started with all of that yesterday, and have been on folate for ages etc.

    I know very well that the odds are quite low that this will eventuate into a healthy bubba, but at least today things are on track. We’re not pinning all our hopes on this as we are happy to go to DE, but of course if it does turn out to be a miracle we will gratefully receive him or her with open arms.

    I’ll check in and do some personals a bit later. Lots of love to everyone xxxxx

    @pingc383 my lining scan was done on CD12 and was 11mm thick! ... with our last successful pregnancy in 2009 the lining CD11 was 8.6mm ....

    isn't the cost of the medications we need disgusting! .. it cost us $360 for 15 crinone, 15 pessaries and then the estrogen tablets .. I've had to go this morning and buy MORE pessaries at a cost of $62! next week I'll need more EST tablets so that's another $30! .....

    @Summer that is a very complex story you have with many ups and downs. So happy that you have took some needed time away and it has helped your marriage, sorry to read that you have seen the true colours of other people in your life who were less supportive. Hoping this is it for you hun and the extra support from Wazza helps this baby to grow and becomes your take home bub xxx

    It is expensive its scary!!!! In a fresh cycle you should get an authority script and get your crinone for $38 to get you through the tww after that or in an fet (I think) its full price. I think thats why wazzas nurses have encouraged me to stick to pessaries after the tww as they are cheaper.

    well when we initially seen our FS and he gave us the scripts etc - we'd been down to the IVF clinic first and the nurse said i can fax these to the pharmacy so when you leave here and get up there they should be ready - and we said yes - I automatically thought it was included in the $3,500 for the FET .. and when the lady at the pharmacy said '$357.78' all I could say was WTF? .......... on top of that we'd just paid the FS $320 (got back a lousey $122 rebate) ....

    It sucks especially after doing this time after time after time, I dream about what we could have bought for ourselves over the last 3 years if we could conceive a child naturally like most 'normal' people. Have you thought about just using pesseries instead of the crinone it could save you money in the long run.
