Super quickie for anyone who was wondering... I got my 2nd BT yesterday and after a torturous afternoon today waiting for results and calling over 30 times with no answer, the receptionist called me back at 7.30pm! My HCG is 1640, Prog is 97.
So looking great, levels have more than doubled every day. Pressures off till next week now...
Results 1,271 to 1,280 of 1641

nat84u - to me, that hCG still fits better with the twins page of betabase (median hCG 1690 @ 20 dpo) than with the singleton page. (And progesterone still suggesting you ovulated from 2 follicles.)
DH doing "better". Has got the mucous on his lungs moving as it needs to, but that means more stressful times with assisted coughing (I was called in to help him cough from 1:30 am to 5 am one night) and exhaustion/muscle fatigue, while hoping that a mucous plug doesn't block the airways when it moves. After shifting one glob yesterday he got his oxygen saturation up to 100 for the first time in days, but without the oxygen mask on it still quickly dropped below 90, so there's obviously more gunk to shift out of his lungs before it's safe for him to come home.
I enquired at the hospital about obtaining an advocate since we were having difficulty in making the hospital properly understand our concerns. That got some very busy people involved, like the hospital bed manager, and now it seems that almost every department is somewhat aware of the problem (bed manager raised some of our issues at an allied health meeting attended by head of OT and others) and they've mostly come to agree with what I wrote a couple of years ago. ICU doctors are now happy to keep DH in ICU until he's ready to discharge home, and to not make us struggle back in a general ward again. An ICU-to-ward liason nurse doesn't seem to agree, but tough for her. The hospital is also going to develop an ICU-admission-only policy for DH and others in similar circumstances for whom general ward is too dangerous. He received a call button yesterday !! Yay!! That still opens the issue of nurse response times, but it's an important and useful in itself start. I also met Head of ICU Nursing yesterday to sort out better passing on of essential skills/knowledge (assisted coughing technique and dysreflexia awareness) that had been poorly done when nurses change shifts, so that seems to sorted now, and all the bigwig nurses are going to be learning the skills today (and last night) so that they can step up if DH's nurse is away from his bedside when his O2 sats drop.

Catemar - big hugs to you and your DP, i really did believe this was the cycle for you.
Felicita - Good to hear your DH is doing better, and glad to hear the hospital taking notice of you and the requests for DH. I hope he is still improving and will be home soon. I hope your two little bundles are still doing well and that the stress of everything isnt affecting you too much
AFM - I headed to Brisbane yesterday to help my mum look after my dad who just had heart surgery, but I ended up twisting my pelvis out (by sitting down!), so now she is looking after me as well as my dad - feel terrible as was here to help her not add to the work load . I am also 5 - 6 days late which is very unlike me, havent taken a home test as yet as worried it will be a BFN, but for the past week I have had cramps like AF is coming or here but then doesnt arrive. I have spoken to the clinic last week when i picked up everything for the next cycle, and they said if it hasnt arrived by Wed to call them and they will do a blood test on the Thursday to see what is happening. Just wondering if my body is all out of wack still from the surgery, although i have had an AF since then, thoughts anyone??
Big hello to everyone else

Catemar: So sorry about BFN. to you both.
Nat: everything is going good Yay
Felicita: You go girl, glad they finally are taking notice. I hope DH gets better real soon.
Alison I hope you and your dad feel better soon.
Hi to Traveller, TTHC, EO, Peonies, Crofty, Roma and a whole bunch of other ladies that I have missed. I hope everyone is keeping warm and safe.
AFM: My BT results from last week were E2: 1160 Prog: 1.4 and LH 47. Not sure whether this is good or not. Am off tomorrow for my next BT and US to see how I am progressing for FET. I wonder if they will up my dose of Progynova cause they didn't last week. I have had a couple of hot flushes this week , and no swelling or sore boobs this time either. So I am not sure what all this means
Anyway stay safe everyone and I'll be back later in the week.

Well AF still not arrived 6 days late now, booked in for blood test/work up on Friday unless AF arrives before then. Did surrender and do a HPT, an hour or so ago and was BFN not that i expected it to be positive. Being i got a 3 pack might try again tomorrow morning, although the nurse at the IVFA thought it would be pretty accurate, even though I could symptom spot LOL.
Hope everyone is having a good week.

Nattie - yaaaaay!!! So happy for you.
Catemer - so sorry for the BFN. Where to from here?
Alison - wow, 6 days late but BFN. Hmmmm. Perhaps the surgery has just messed up your cycle. Good luck!
AFM: Just waiting for AF now to start jabbing again. Should be within about 2 weeks, as I think I ovulated on Sun or Mon.
I'm feeling I should honour Lindylou & keep the roll call updated, but brain's feeling a bit fuzzy right now. Will get onto it soon. Is anyone else even cycling anytime soon, aside from Alison and myself?

Fingers crossed it works this time. I've got DP drinking Pom juice, eating plenty of cheese and wearing rose quartz! Short of dancing naked in the moonlight on the second tuesday I don't know what more we can do! 😃
