    Hi Donna,
    I didn't get any immunisations. Hep B etc I already had. Depends if you are visiting any malaria areas ie Kruger I think?
    Not sure about extra medicines its a case by case, I think I would avoid any extra if there is no indications for it. Have you asked you FS about it or CTF Dr?

    have a good weekend

    Hi everyone. Just a quick and newsy update after an incredibly long week.

    We have a positive beta of 80 and its only really 8.5dp5dt! So excited...

    I did a HPT yesterday and it was negative so a word of warning to everyone those things are EVIL. It had me in a complete spin and I'd written it off as yet another fail.

    Fingers crossed for our 2nd beta on Monday...

    i hope everyone else is doing well.

    TW

    PS I'm using Crinone not PIO, Metformin, Prednisolone, Clexane, Baby Asprin and will keep on it all till 12 weeks (hopefully!)

    Hi Ladies,
    hope you are all well and happy. I'm really enjoying this rain we are having in Perth!

    Helen - Best wishes for a successful transfer, I think it's all going to be great for you.
    Pixel - I'm glad you are feeling better, the odds with DE get better each time.
    Midnight - that's wonderful news, enjoy
    Donna - I'm going to take the prednisolone and aspirin as per my last IVF treatment cycle. If there's no harm then why not try it. Also you mentioned in one of your posts about a cyst you had, I've also had a cyst that comes and goes. Did the doctor say anything about it with a donor cycle?
    Jennilee - I've sent you a msg.

    Just want to mention that I have been taking the Yasmin pill and in the Marie Claire magazine there was an article about how bad this particular brand of pill is. I've only got another 10 days on it but I'm going to swap for another type. Make sure you ladies don't take this brand!

    Twowhites - Congratulations, fantastic news
    Cartia - Interesting about the Yasmin pill...I will check out the article.
    Crystal - Not long now for donor screening.
    Midnite - How wonderful...must be amazing to see and a relief too.
    Pixel - How are you?
    Jennilee - Sounds like your donor has a perfect AMH level.
    Libelle - I will also give no swabs a go when on clexane again....I wonder how it works!! The clexane bruising was certainly wicked.
    Helenmac - How did your scan go... for a thick lining? I was completely wired when I was on prednisolone...last FET FS had me on 20mg a day...the day I started is the day I said the prednisolone monster moved in! Eat, Eat, Eat..I was starving AND wired!!!
    Laned - Has bub managed to turn....any news on a date?
    Makeba - Any SA news/updates?
    DJ - Im planning on taking clexane/prednisolone/aspirin due to my elevated ANA levels. Vaccinations: Probably best to speak to your doc..I went to mine but he said I didnt need any due to all the ones I had a couple of years ago (Hep, Typhoid, polio vaccine etc) ...he even checked to see if I still had rabies antibodies. He said that its not a developing country, so there shouldnt be any problems. He said that if we were travelling through Kruger for any longer than 4 or 5 days, then he would suggest something for malaria, but for that amount of days, he said wear light coloured clothing and have good repellant and dont hang around outside at dawn and dusk. Okie dokie doc...job done!!!

    Hi everyone,

    wow so much action on the thread.

    update from Cape Town... All is well. We are heading back to CFC for a 5 day transfer. Early night tonight as I'm sure i wont be able to sleep. I am now worried about the next two weeks...
    We have a had a fab time here, spent two days in hermanus. DH did the cage shark dive and loved it.. I had a gorgeous massage/ treatment. I think we have out on a stack of weight from all the good food and wine.

    Twowhites great news!

    I will send through some tips on our experience here when I'm home... Will need plenty of distractions.

    enjoy the weekend.

    cheers

    Hi Ladies,

    Jenilee - Sounds fab those AMH levels. I have a little tip for the clexane. Use the medicated swab but wait until it dry's first. Also while injecting hold the bottom end (near the needle) and don't allow it to push into your tummy or you will get a bruise and just take your time administering it. This way I find it doesn't hurt at all!!

    Crystal - Thank you yes my scan went well my lining is at 9.1mm so I'm happy with that! I also have insomnia on the prednisolone and I'm now on 25mg. On transfer day it increases to 30mg.

    Donna - Thanks for the good luck wishes. I didn't have any immunisations but I had the flu shot. I always seem to pick up a nasty cold on the plane. In terms of taking immune meds in my opinion it doesn't hurt to give it a shot considering you haven't tried it before it could possibly be helpful with implantation as prednisolone removes inflamation. Also clexane is good to take on the plane to prevent the risks of DVT.

    AFM: I had my lining scan which is 9.1mm so all is going well. Every day everything is getting ticked off so my 'to do' list is much shorter. I'm giving my DS a recordable story book and a little gift to open each day while I'm away. OMG I can't believe I leave for Cape Town in 4 days!!!
