@Blossom74 I like your title suggestion! What dosage are the pessaries? What do you currently have left over from other cycles re progesterone support?
@Tahli the Ethinyl Estradiol costed $50 BUT it cost me more like 300 as I went impulsive clothes shopping on the way to get it! ..Like I should be out spending money right now
@Charlie74 I cant believe tomorrows the big day!! Im so hoping this is your time and you won't need the other thread at all
tears and sleeplessness could be a good sign..altho i know you're on a shizload of progesterone so its hard to know whats real.
@BlondeinBrisvegas good luck today with your counselling and enjoy the pampering.
just to add too that I see this thread as a place of support where you are always welcome to vent and cry, I guess its a big part of why we are all on it. So I don't have a problem with feelings being shared, but I understand its hard to hear good news sometimes. I guess in all honesty any of the longer term girls in here I would never feel anything but happy for but when someone new comes along and BAM BFP not long after it can feel a bit cr@ppy. I think Im probably one of the oldest posters in here now that Bongley, Chiefs and Julie have moved on. It feels sad actually. When will my turn come!
Gosh I hope this thing works
LOVE that its the first day of Spring
@Charlie74 Re the tears, it sounds like your progesterone is working fine, that mixed with anxiety. Poor you. Fingers crossed for solid sleep on the weekend. Do you have the pathology slip? You just line up for when they first open!
I've not been told which of the two I will be using or what dosage the pessaries will be. I'm just thinking ahead of time about how much those darn pessaries costs when a box of Crinone is only $38, and wondering if there was a benefit either way. Currently I have a box and a bit of left-over Crinone on hand.
Have you done both previously?
I did Crinone for one cycle but have never done the pessaries. The other concern I have regarding the pessaries is that they will be hard for me to get hold of. Pretty sure the local chemist out in the middle of whoop whoop doesn't stock them! I know Kee tends to prescribe them fairly often though....
@tuxcat I'm still here! Just Mia for a bit. But I made it back on time to be a cheerleader for you @Blossom74 and @Tahli and of course the other ladies I'll get to know who have joined since I was away!
@Charlie74 I hate the tww I have everything crossed for you.
@Blossom74 I am so friggin excited for you, I've missed your baking pics too!
@Tahli in deference to the lovely ladies who are having a tough time I won't go into it too much but dd has been unwell, dr's have been having a go at me, neighbours have been ****s and dh and I nearly split.
I was finding life incredibly hard with no family or close friends to talk to. I am in a better place now though. It just goes to show how valuable having a place to vent is, I was pretty low for a while.
In terms of the new thread, I actually found reading of other people who were struggling at the same time helped me. Too often we put on a brave face when inside we are hurting. Hearing that others were struggling too often helped me talk about how I was feeling.
In regards to crinone vs pessaries - crinone is usually 200mg progesterone whereas pessaries are usually 400mg and higher so you are getting a higher dose of progesterone.
And nice to see this thread is still as active as ever, you are all prolific posters!
