Hi all, just jumping on this page. Just started my cycle, day 3 so first injection was today.
Fingers crossed I have better luck than my first cycle.
Good luck to us all
Pregnyl trigger shot 10000iu on the 17/9.
How long should it take to be out of system?
Tested this morning and I don't think there was a line there but I did it again a moment ago with 3 hrs hold and super faint line came up I'm 3dp5dt assisted hatching blast.
I've been thinking....dangerous I know!!! 😋
As a woman we are told to stay calm, don't stress and you'll get pregnant....so how do we explain the pregnant women in war zones and camps, those with addictions, those living in traumatic situations, those with serious diseases or health issues.....they are living in horrendous situations with extreme levels of stress....yet they are pregnant! I used to work in child protection and the women were always getting pregnant easily...yet they lived in poverty, with addictions and trauma.
So I wondered if blaming it on stress is another way to put the blame on women? In a medical system that cannot explain the increasing numbers of people having trouble falling pregnant it seems easy to blame the person themselves.
So I did try keeping myself calm and then i felt guilty when I got stressed....now I have decided a new way forward......just be me! If i need to stress....stress....if I feel happy...be happy...run, jump, cry, eat what I want and let myself feel what I need to feel to get through this (hopefully sane!). There's not much I can do to make my embryo stick...but I can be true to me 😊
This is a journey and not an easy one, so all we can do is be true to ourselves and do it our way (think of the song "I did it my way..."). I hope you all find your way xx
PS Don't go into a medicare office!!!! Too much time to sit and think...and post!!!!
Pretty much on the same as last time I think, 300 gonal F, started at 250 last time but after day 6 blood test went up to 450 shots and ended up with OHSS.
We are doing ICSI this time in the hope of getting more than 1 embryo (they got 11 eggs resulting in only 1)
As for other drugs, I'm not sure what they are doing with my allergy. I'm a bit panicked already for retrieval after the scare last time but now we know what I'm allergic to hopefully it will all go a bit smoother.
I'm feeling bloated already and it's only day 2 of injections
AFM I'm wishing the 2ww away (strange I know) but it's our last before doing our frozen cycle next month. I've been temping and OPKing last month and this month. Positive OPK cd12 last month (pretty sure I O'd Cd 14 due to temp dip and rise) and this month I had positive cd 14 evening and cd 15 morning & lunch. Currently CD 17 (had temp dip yesterday morning) Been feeling a little fluish so temps are all over the shop this month so don't know 100%
