@Blossom74 I loved reading your update on your day. I think sometimes (incredibly understandably) we can get super stuck in this sh*tty ttc rut. But you've mixed it up. You've done something that is not only forward looking but forward 'doing'. Kudos gorgeous! I like your style...and your change in ttc energy!!
Ladies, having never done Progynova before, a quick question for you...So I had AF, did 10 days on The Pill, came off and started bleeding on 21/09 and it's still going. Not much - just some weird clotting mixed with mucous sort of stuff. Am taking 3 x 2mg Progy every day but am crapping bricks my lining won't build up. AF would normally be gone by now but I know this was slightly different.Thoughts?
@gorgeousgeorge, safe travels hon.
@Tahli, glad all is well with you and can't wait to see some POAS action.
@tuxcat, good luck for EPU

Hi everyone, we've made it to sydney 400km later, now just hanging at my nans waiting to go to the airport at 7pm. So this will prob be my last post for a little while. Thank you for all your kind messages, farewell and support. I literally could never have done this without you all. xox
Here's one last story... get to nans n im busting, while im in the loo, i can hear my grandparents asking dh where are we going. He yells out to me, "where are we going again honey?" Athens DH. Athens, Greece. Good lord i hope he doesnt ever get separated from me while we are traveling.
ha you might need to write/print out the hotel address & put it in his wallet
good luck for your trip. I hope it all goes well
going ok thanks @tuxcat. DP has put the stop on local donor. & isn't entertaining o/s yet so I'll see how that goes. good luck for tomorrow & this week. all sounding great for you
@gorgeousgeorge as the Greeks will say, Kalo taxidi! Safe travels and may the fertility gods watch over you.
To the others a quick hello and intro - I'm 40 trying to give my 3 y.o DD a sibling. Took me three rounds of clomid for her. Then from 5/15 had five clomid rounds all BFN. Then natural BFP but chem pregnancy 1/16. Started IVF I've had two stim cycles 5/16: 11 eggs/8 fert/2blasto 1 FET bfn 1 PGD tested but also BFN. 7/16: 11 eggs/7 fert/1 blast - frozen as not able to be PGD tested. Apparently have low count killer cells but enough to warrant clexane/prednisone. Awaiting to do another stim cycle with Dr Burmeister. I'm also on the Greek egg donor thread as that is my plan B if this stim cycle goes no where - In May.
It does feel good being off the mess when not cycling but oddly feel guilty as that time is like a freight train as Christmas approaches.
I notice others who have been on this journey a long time and I find myself (normally resilient) feeling anxious and overwhelmed by time and things out of my control. I'm contemplating anti anxiety meds - does anyone have experience? Or what do you do to not lose yourself completely or find strength to keep it all together?
Really appreciate your thoughts
Hi Phia, and welcome.
I'd love to give you some advice but right now I'm a bit of a basket case in the lead up to my next cycle
FWIW I find that just having a plan can help alleviate stress. I'm always thinking two steps ahead and tend to put contingencies in place for 'what if this bit doesn't work.'
Aside from that, walking helps as well as taking a little time out for myself where I can.
Good to have you on board hon, enjoy your time here
Have a safe & swift trip over Lovely & I'm crossing everything/Babydusting & sending a fruckload of prayers your way for a sticky one or 2 for you!!!! 👏👏👏👍👍👍💚💛💜💙❤xoxo
