Hi all, just got home from my meet up, my donor wasn't there as she lived about 5 hours away. Was nice to meet some new people and be able to talk freely about IVF stuff, even with the men!
@Rhino I feel your pain sister, I posted a while ago about my cousins "surprise" pregnancy at 38 with some guy she had only just met and made the announcement whist drinking a beer and smoking! I feel apart, I threw a mammoth tantrum when I got home and I still haven't spoken to her ( no great loss)
Here's the link for yummy sausage rolls, they were a big hit today X
Check out this story I found: Chicken sausage rolls http://kitchen.nine.com.au/2016/05/1...-sausage-rolls
@gorgeousgeorge that is interesting. I've never heard of it but I often have coldsores... I wonder if that is another issue that contributes? I did think of asking my FS about intralipids, but chickened out as he'd probably think 'here she goes again'. Would it work if I just ate a lot of cheesecake? Sorry you have a lot of anxious thoughts, no help with that as I do the same thing!
@Maxwellsmum I hear you there... I am really worried about another chem or non viable pregnancy. I hope if I get a BFP the HCG is sky high so I don't have to stress.
Busy sorting out paperwork for Medicare and HBF, geez it's so tricky to keep organised! And then I realised Medicare still hadn't processed a claim from October, which I keep sending them. I've started writing myself sticky notes saying what I've paid, submitted, where to and when, and where to send the receipt when I get it. I've now started using the app which seems to be much quicker so far, but I am cr*ppy at taking photos and have had some sent back.
I think I'm kind, my mum thinks I'm beautiful but I'm definitely not soft spoken! I'm loud and often use swear words to start a sentence, finish a sentence and as a comma!
But I googled miss honey, and I'll take it!
pingc383, I've just done my last cycle with E2 priming indeed, but that was my own initiative based on my own researches.
I'm with Primary Ivf Sydney (low cost clinic) and my FS doesn't believe in E2 priming and know nothing about it.
I actually designed my own protocol and pushed like crazy until she accepts to prescribe it. (Progynova)
Even though we had a terrible fert rate this time (not due to E2 priming) I had the best eggs recruitment so far thanks to it (I'm a poor responder).
I'll def do it again next cycle.
One thing I learned with Ivf: it's YOUR cycle, own it!
No worries hon
And please don't think I'm trying to dismiss your concerns, because they are all quite valid and very similar to my own.
But when I get to a point where I can't see the forest for the trees sometimes, I just remind myself of the Baby Bird analogy....
Momma Bird is up on a high branch with Baby Bird.
Momma Bird says to Baby Bird "OK Baby Bird, now it's time for you to jump."
Baby Bird looks at Momma Bird and says "But Momma, I'm scared! What if I fall?"
And Momma Bird replies "But oh, my dear! What if you fly?"
