    Hi @pingc383
    I did get 1 BFN but I think my lining wasn't ready but I pushed for transfer anyway and wasted my last 2 embryos from stim number 5. But mainly I was having MC after MC. When I asked for the kitchen sink I added neupogen which I believe was the key. I also did one IVIG at 9 weeks pregnant at my request because I didn't want to lose another. Prior to my BFP Dr M putvme on DHEA and Melatonin which I was on for just over 3 months, and DH on Menevit. I also believe this helped with our natural BFP making us super fertile I guess.
    Always had an issue with progesterone so that went from 200mg that my fertility clinic recommended to 800mg and then to 1200mg after levels dropped a little.
    I had 3xLIT, dexamethasone changed to predisone 9 weeks, clexan 80mg down to 40mg, low dose asprin for first 10 weeks, intralipids every 4 weeks plus vitamins calcium, vitamin D and a multi vitamin.

So my winning ticket was zoladex 3months prior, neupogen, 3xIVIG, 3xLIT, Dex then pred, 60clexane, intralipid til 24weeks, progesterone 1200 then 800. Dr M treatment & nick lolatgis at Monash ivf too. So everyone please don't give up & do go to Dr M above all others but ask questions & still be proactive with him, he never tested our matches, nick did thank God. Also the adenomyosis was diagnosed by Prof Tremellen in Adelaide. I wish all of you here your hard won baby very very soon xxx
    Wow that's beautiful! Congratulations on the birth of your precious girl. I too have a complete match so this gives me much hope that our little girl will be born without a hitch. We are currently 22+4weeks and I am still worried my body will go into attack mode.
    Xx

    @PreciousHeart huge congrats on the birth of your beautiful Bub!!! What a journey it sounds like you've been on! Can I ask, how did prof tremellen diagnose your adenomyosis? Was it through MRI? My endo specialist believes I have adeno but I had an MRI with another dr and there was no direct mention in the report of adeno (only that my uterus was abnormal - which I already knew). Was the zoladex for the adeno too?

    Thanks @BB77 I know I should more positive but we do my husband is probably worse, get a little anxious, especially now we are decreasing all meds to stop. I feel her kick me and all my fears go away but poor DH doesn't get that relief.
    When did you stop all meds and how did he monitor? I had I blood test about 8 weeks ago and all levels were low.
    How are you and bub doing? Xx

    @Mink yes I got an MRI looking for adeno & had the results sent to Prof Tremellen at Repromed. I then did a $100 phone consult with him & he wrote a letter for my ivf FS & dr M. Call the repromed nurses & ask them to check you've got what he needs re your MRI before spending $ to talk to him. The zoladex was purely for the adeno & my case was very severe despite no pain etc, I'd lost 4 embies before using it despite having IVIG neupogen steroids etc! Went into menopause for about a month of sweats but who cares?! Amazingly I have my baby! Definitely get Tremellen's advice & do the magic zoladex along with what Dr M gives you, take it all... Good luck! X

    I totally understand @Olive79. I stopped everything except clexane by 20-something weeks. Clexane til week before delivery. I was especially anxious about stopping neupogen at 15 weeks. Dr m didn't do that much extra towards the end. I had a couple of extra growth scans, more for my peace of mind than necessity. And I saw him a lot when appointments were fortnightly then weekly, and also monthly ivig. He sensed my anxiety and said, "relax now and start enjoying your pregnancy." I took that to mean that the real worry was over. You're far along enough now that the major risk is in the past. Tell hubby every time she kicks, mine eventually got sick of me I think.
    We're doing good, after 6 months I still can't believe he's here, it's just surreal. Now I'm anxious about things like poop and sleep. Never goes away .
    What's your due date?

    Thank you @BB77 that does make me feel better. Yes stopping neupogen was a big deal for us too we did that around the same time. I see him every 4 weeks atm and also for intralipids on the off every 4 weeks, so quite a bit.
    Wow 6 months! Poop and sleep lol. I am due 15th Feb so less than 18 weeks to go!
    Thank you again, take care! Xx
