Earthpower - I am so sorry. I wish we could all give you a hug. You will be in my thoughts over these next cruel days. I know how sad and difficult they will be.
Perhaps let Dr M know if you haven't already.

Just a quick vent ladies - Dr M was meant to call me for a phone consult yesterday and he didn't call
Pretty sure I won't get hold on him until the New year, how frustrating

Scruffy - As much as I love all the wonderful things Dr. M is doing for us high nk ladies I have to reinforce they are such an unorganised pair. Also Dr. M's treatment plans are never consistant from patient to patient that have identical issues. My advise is do your own research and then push for it as Dr. M seems to be the only Doctor in Australia that roughly follows Beer protocols. Good luck!

High Natural Killer Cells
Thanks Helen, that kind of backs up what I thought. I couldn't understand why he didn't do IVIG the first time when I have high CD 57 uterine cells ( the worst according to Dr Beer). I will push for it this time and keep hassling Gwyneth for another appt!!!

Scruffy, I agree with Helen, do your own research and be assertive. I felt a little leg ache at the same time my hcg was dropping, leg ache usually is a sign for me that nk cell is up...so maybe intralipid is not aggressive for me or should have it with shorter interval....I will never know...
i got my hcg level yesterday, it was 15. So I have stopped all meds and just waiting for af. I never thought chemical can be this hard, I never had this before....anyway, my dh is amazing and our family is really close, looking forward to a Xmas with lots of prawns, hams and champagne now....
best of luck ladies, you are all so amazing with extraordinary strength, I wish you all a very best2013!

Earthpower - I'm thinking of you hun. It's so hard to except especially facing closure. I'm just curious but how was the quality of the embryo? I'm aware it was a FET but was it a top quality embryo to give yourself the best possible chance along with the immune meds? Wishing you well and enjoy those champers! Have a few extra, you deserve it!!! xx

Helen, I had a two blastcysts transferred, one day5 and one day6, I think at least one of them was good quality as it was from 2010 frozen. Yesterday I had a flicker of thought maybe I should be doing another stim cycle given it seems to some extent intralipid did work and maybe I should try again. But again am I kidding myself with the chance of being a 41 year-old going on 42 in Feb the egg quality, am I just wasting my money and energy. Its hard to accept a chemical I now wish I just got a straight BFN... a bit confused right now...
How was your specialist appt? Did they have a straight answer for you?

Earthpower - I feel for you, closure it so hard to except especially if you are not quite ready to let go. I was in your shoes a few years back and I ended up opting for donor eggs through my twin sister. It was the best decision I EVER made as it resulted in my georgous little man. Now I'm going to the extreme and accepting donor eggs from Cape Town due to it being almost impossible to find a local donor! I hope that whatever decision you make you will feel content with and be able to move forward with your life. I'm here if you have any questions or need to vent. Thinking of you
My apointment went well. The 2nd MRI showed normal vascular flow in my uterus and diagnosis was Stage 1 Ashermans Syndrome. The first MRI was misread!! Waiting for AF to start the ball rolling.
April - How are you travelling in your cycle? I have no idea when my next cycle will commence. At this stage I'm STILL waiting for my AF. I stopped the estrogen 10 days ago and AF is supposed to arrive but no show yet.
Hi to all the other ladies

April, sorry have been MIA and just caught up on your cycle and best wishes for the 3 little ones to develop into beautiful strong embies! It must be a nervous wait, I found the days waiting for the calls are most nerve-wrecking, especially all the drugs / meds stropped, you tend to have much time and energy to worry as well….hope this time will soon pass for you.
Helen, thank you hun for the comforting words…Im doing much better now. Time is a miracle drug I guess and help healing…I still don't know what to do yet but maybe I still have a little bit left for a final fight. DH is amazing and said if I want to try again he will be supportive. So have no rush to decide although time is not on my side.
Any encouraging stories that 42 year-old still get a good egg harvest with quality eggs? I guess if I do go through another stim cycle, this would be my biggest concern. I did have my AMH done the year before last and FS said was good as anyone, but again that doesn't give any indication on egg quality does it?
Helen, I can't wait to cheer you on your next cycle.
FG, when do you start your next cycle? Must be close or maybe you have started jabbing already, sending good vibes!
