Loveabug, very exciting that your FET is well and truly underway!
Frosty, what an incredible scare your little bug has given you! My heart clenched reading it and I can only imagine how horrific it must've been for you SOOOO glad he/she is very secure and you are resting up. Has OB established what the source of the bleeding is? All the best for tomorrow's scan
Lily, haven't hear from you in a while starting to get a little worried? Hope all is progressing beautifully
Haydos, congrats on being PUPO!! You made it and not everyone gets to the transfer stage, so where there is an embie there is definitely hope! Great advice from Frosty re: looking for a pattern to cycles and considering your next move from there. You are also blessed (as I am) to have a sister waiting in the wings although you will be UTD from your current dynamic duo on board. I'm happy to talk further if you do find yourself on this path.
Sorry for the paraphrasing from another post but the info is the same!
EPU is set for Friday. Sis' E2 is climbing beautifully and she has a really nice crop of follies (about 10) ranging from 14-18mm, a couple of big boys we will loose as already in the 20's and then a whole lot of little ones coming up behind. Not surprisingly she is starting to feel pretty average! She arrives tomorrow night so DH and I are looking forward to lavishing lots of TLC on her and I am excited about going to her final scan together on Wednesday.
Surprisingly FS still hasn't canned me yet for a fresh transfer The lining hasn't grown a whole lot, it's at 4.2mm today, but it did have the trilaminar pattern, so the quality is there just not the quantity! I still have about 9 days till transfer but I'm not optimisitic that it will make the grade after all this time. DH and I have agreed he will carry the can of hope and I will carry the can of being realistic!
Have a good week ALL!

Hi Starfish, thanks for asking about me. I'm fine (see below), I've been avoiding BH lately cos there are too many posts that just freak me out and of course I read threads I shouldnt. I'm so excited for you and your sis, with so many follies there has to be a perfect little bub in there for you, I have everything crossed for you - this is your time! Now we just have to get your lining to thicken so - grow lining grow, grow lining grow, grow lining grow, grow lining grow, grow lining grow, grow lining grow, grow lining grow, grow lining grow, grow lining grow, grow lining grow!
Haydos - congratulations on your double ET today. I have everything that this is your lucky cycle.
Frosty - you must be having such a stressful time at the moment, I've been thinking of you and your precious bub and really hope the bleeding eases soon so you can enjoy the rest of your pregnancy. Take care of yourself and rest up hun xxx
So sorry I know I've missed heaps of you, sending lots of to everyone on this thread.
afm, we had our scan today and everything was perfect with our 1 little bub. Heartbeat and size were perfect and we are over the moon and also so relieved. We are only 6 weeks and 2 days but FS wanted to scan early to make sure it wasnt ectopic since I'm on clexane, but luckily all looking great. We both got teary when we saw the flutter and heard the little heart.
I'll try to catch up with everyone I missed in the next few days xxxx

ktp - I know EXACTLY what you mean. I have tried to keep some things to myself as I do not want to deter others. I wish you the very best and hope you feel you can share with us all here as we all know how you are feeling. Thank the heavens for people who do get it I say. My family do not understand sometimes so I just shut my mouth now. I said a small thing about IVF the other day and my Mum said, "I am glad you brought it up as you have been silent for so long". Needless to say I changed the topic. I do not talk about it much of late as they always ramble on about how much they want me to give them a granddaughter and maybe I can't. I am sure I am not alone when I say we are all here to listen and if you need to vent, it is a good thing.
Star - thanks for saying that. I sometimes try and ignore how long it had been. I thought I was happy living in ignorance BUT as you know, that stupid MTV show set me off again. And to think I watched it AGAIN yesterday. You are so right. It takes so little to bring the IVF PTSD flooding back. I too have had meltdowns just by walking into the clinic. I think that is what is holding me back now also. I just cannot stand the thought of facing the unknown again. DH noticed I was a little off tonight and asked why and I said, "I am starting to get scared again".He had no idea what I was talking about so I just said, "I cannot talk about it right now". Truth is, I feel my time ticking away and I am so scared that I will not be able to face IVF again. I just want it to go away. Dr S makes me nervous for some reason and I just do not want to deal with it again. I know all about the meltdowns and if anyone desrves some happy news soon it is you. This thread has been a saviour for me and I am glad someone took the time to start something like this which makes ladies like me feel better. You have made me feel so much more comfortable and I thank you for that. I feel alot less alone and I feel it is okay to say things like this because of you. Thank youXXX

Lily, WOOO HOOOO!!!!! Congratulations honey that is fantastic news! One beautiful bubba coming right up! Looks like YOU will have to start the LTTIVF graduate thread with Frosty...make room I'm hoping to join you soon and so are the other gals here! P.s loved your lining dance!
Jamison, You will know when it is the right time to go back. As lovely as he is, Dr S has had to deliver some of the worst news of my life, so yeah he makes me nervous sometimes too!
Will leave you with this gem I heard recently:
"It all works out in the end. If it hasn't worked out yet, it isn't the end".

Star---Mentally doing the lining dance for you since I'm not game to jiggle at this stage. 9 days is plenty for the lining to grow. I love the quote.
Jamison---Sending you calming vibes.
Lily---Yay for little blobby heartbeat. Another hurdle down.

Hello Ladies, I am a first time IVFer and although I always read in I had popped in today to ask a question. I sincerly apologies if its a bit out of line. I can see that there are much bigger issues to face than measly question. (just thought with your wealth of experince you know best)
Star, I have heard on another forum that warmth can help the lining grow. A lady was using a hot water bottle twice daily from AF to EPU on medicated cycles, there was a dramatic improvement in the lining growth when using the hot water bottle verses not using it... anythings worth a try right?
A couple a quick questions if I may.
1) some suggest using ice prior to injecting others suggest heat before and after injecting.. I am not worried so much by the pain factor (which I believe is why they use ice) I am more interested in the best distribution of meds(which is why I believe they use heat.... any thoughts?
2) if the male has morphology issues do you feel it important to maintain regular ejaculations prior to EPU and over what time frame? the reason I ask is that I have been enjoying a hard earned break while on bc thus no beddng. Last night I panicked as I have stopped the production line. I have 14 days till EPU.. any thoughts on this?
08-11-2011 14:46 #259
Intrigue---I don't think either heat or cold prior to injection helps that much in terms of drug distribution. You're likely to get more bruising if you use heat. One tip is if you have too much adipose tissue in the abdomen is actually injection your thighs instead, so the drug doesn't need to wade through lots of layers of fat to get inside your blood ******. About the ejaculation, which had never applied to us as DH had vasectomy, I've heard that jamming up for too long is actually not good for the sperms, I think the guy needs to do an emptying about 2 days prior. The other ladies might have to confirm this as I have no personal experience.
Star---I just thought of some of Wazza's other tricks for lining. He uses GTN patch (people use it for angina to open up the blood vessels), he also uses testoterone patch and in worse case scenario Viagra pessaries. I personally think it's a bit voodooish, but you know Wazza's reputation, he's a bit crazy like that.
AFM---Just back from the obstetrician, baby is good on scan, cervix is tightly closed, still a clot sitting next to the placenta, so I've been ordered to have another 2 weeks off. If not she'll have to admit me to a hospital bed!

loveabug - thank you so much for that. Sorry if I made anyone teary. I am good at that!! Hope you are well. Hugs to you also.
lilybaby - glad to hear all is well and I understand you wnating to stay a little clear of BH as it can send the "What if" thoughts into overdrive. When are you due?
Frosty - woah...you had me on the edge of my seat in a BAD way but I was relieved to hear all is well. Rest up and no more scares okay?
star - Dr S gives me what he considers "good" news in that there is apparently "nothing" wrong with me but sometimes you want something to be wrong with you so you know what you are dealing with. I am still always so scared about what he is going to say to me so that's why I get nervous around him. You are my twin I have to tell you. I know of that quote and tell EVERYONE who will listen about it. Did you get it from "Guiliana & Bill" ? I know I did. It refers to this IVF game too so that's what made it hit home for me so much. I LOVE it. It is so simple yet is such a strong message to people like us. I really am in awe that you quoted that. That phrase was my new mantra!!!Great minds think alike huh? How are you doing there? Best of luck with that lining! I am willing it to be nice and juicy for you.
Hi to everyone else and I hope you are all okay and nearing the end of this journey XXX
