@BlondeinBrisvegas How was DDs birthday celebration? xx
@Midnite01, sending lots of good luck for your scan today hon
So I have a Prednisolone question for you all.
You might remember a while ago I was complaining about feeling like a Grandma, with aching shoulder and hip joints? My GP put me on Prednisolone as a trial, and I had to take 20mg x 4 days, 15mg x 4 days, 10mg x 4 days, 5mg x 4 days, then 5mg every second day for 4 days, then stop?
Well, I'm now down to my last tablet and whilst I felt amazing on the Prednisolone, the pain is now coming back.
Now...being that I was originally put on it because of the pain, and that my BT's indicated high inflammatory markers, my concern is surrounding transfer. I should definitely be taking Prednisolone, right? I worry that if I don't my high markers might make it difficult for my body to even implant when the time comes, let alone sustain a pregnancy long term...
Not sure of my FS's opinion on this as yet. He isn't aware of my recent joint issues. I think his standard is 10mg a day but I'm not sure how long for. My question to you all, is what dose would you want to be on, and more importantly for how long?
I know there is a slightly elevated risk of cleft palate occurring but my research seems to indicate it is very slight - from 1/1000 to 2/1000?
Hi everyone hope you all had a great weekend,
hi @Jazzabelle13 thx for asking about me, how are you going? Are you planning to cycle again soon?
@Blossom74 I have no idea about the pred, but hope you get some answers
@midnite01 and @Caesardust good luck today
@Billie2 hope everything's ok at your next scan..is your hcg down yet?
@skeeter your line is looking fabulous - bet you can't wait for your blood test?
@Charlie74 and @LillyM thinking of you both in your 2ww, and hope you both get your bfps this week.
afm I think it's a bfn for me this cycle. I've been testing out the pregnyl daily since the last booster and the line is just getting lighter. Assume the line would've been darkening by now (10dp 3dt) ? Anyone else tested it out ? just wanna get off the progesterone now and move forward.
I'm sorry it's not looking so good hon. I've not done Pregnyl myself so I can't really comment. But what I will say is this...Whilst I know it is tempting to stop the meds, I'd hold off until your BT is done and you 'officially' get the all clear. Only because I have heard of people getting their BFP at 14dpo, completely out of the blue. And if nothing else, you don't want any 'what-if's' to deal with down the line. Being that your BT will be due quite soon I'd keep going with everything if you can hon. I'm sorry it's not looking more positive but will hold a candle of hope for you anyway
