I also didnt know about pred masking symptoms
Its didnt take away my morning sickness... but i didnt start till 5.5 weeks when I found out.
Thinking of you all!!
Ps: no baby news 1 week late
As i really want a water birth, if they induce with drip i cant have that.
We have a penciled day in to start, but they will allow me to push it back slightly
We DH and i also dont like the idea of going past 42 weeks as the placenta can break down.... so either way only a few more days
wow, there is so much info in this thread, I'm very interested in reading all the posts and learning the terminology. I have two healthy kids but I've had 7 miscarriages and an ectopic pregnancy. I've just been referred to Dr Nicole Sides, fertility specialist in ACT. Absolutely loved her. She's enthusiastic and extremely motivated. I learnt more about miscarriage and fertility in an hour appointment with her than I've learnt over all the years of miscarriages. I'm still working out how I feel about it all. I feel I have been brushed off for years with 'oh well you have two healthy kids and there is no real reason for your miscarriages' and I feel a bit stupid for accepting that! You really have to push to be heard.
Anyway the reason I've chosen this thread is because NKC was a hot topic in my appointment with Dr Sides. I'm feeling confident in her. At least someone is FINALLY trying to help me. I'll be following with interest and hopefully learning all I can from you ladies!! Cheers
Well Dr M told me that after I was worried I had no symptoms, maybe he said it for reassurance as I know others have been sick with it. It could also be the cocktail of drugs I was on. But I was happy tgat he justified it like that.
@ange1111 and @pingc383
hubby has blood taken, he thinks it was about 3 vials, just like having blood tests so only in for a couple of minutes. As already said 2 treatments 4 weeks apart. Then you get about 4 injections in your forearm. They stung. But Dr M is very good with it.
I couldn't hold out any longer and have POAS. It's a BFP. Blood test Thursday. This one stays.
back to Neupogen questions.mhow long aft the weekly blood test does Dr M advise if there is a change? Or do I need to contact? I'm sure he said they will just contact via email. Do I assume if no contact there is no change?
