Thanks for that Crofty I was getting a lil lost on where everyone was up to & who was still on
Good luck to you, Lite & B123 for your EPU hoping you all get some good numbers!
congrats & good luck to Cheals & Lissyloulou sending you heaps of sticky vibes!
Scruffy how you going?? you should be around 16 weeks now are you starting to show?
Romy - good luck for your 12 week scan (are you booked in for next week?)
Kaaz - how you going?? Hope you're well
AFM - 15 weeks & time feels like its going pretty quick...diet has gone out the window meaning I am eating everything in site & lots of it...I used to be soooo disciplined...
Dr M has only taken me down to 30mg Prednisolone which I'm worried is too high for how far I am along, haven't been told to reduce further yet...still on 3 x pessaries & 40mg clexane..I'll have to hit him up on the 19th to see when he will be doing the next NK marker bloods as I haven had any since falling pregnant ...
Bella how did you ween down & at what weeks and did you have to have any bloods to check your NK levels again?
Hi to all the other ladies hope everyone is doing well whatever stage you're up too!

Looking good Crofty. Hope EC will go well!
Im starting the steroids on the 15th and then day 1 should be on the 22and. Im doing a short cycle (first time) and im very excited about that.
On day 10 im having a endo scraping and E.C. day should be on 3rd of june.
Has anyone tried viagra to thicken there endometrium? Im gona try that for the first time.. My endometrium has been around 8-9,5mm on E.T. day and i want it to be 11-13mm. Also some studies have said that vigra can lower the NK cells activity.
Hope everybody is doing well

Hope ur all well and have a nice weekend ahead
Crofty- yes I am due Nov 26th at this point .. As surreal as it is to type!!
Kiwi- I'm giggling to read that ur diet has gone out the window as when I saw you a few weeks ago you were soo skinny !! I don't believe you hehe
Yes NT scan is this Tuesday.... Excited and anxious ...
The past few days I have definitely felt more energetic and hardly pregnant.. But I have definitely learnt that all throughout this journey there is something to worry about! Sooo after Tuesday I'm going to try adopt a new outlook of trusting my body knows what to do and really being positive
To all the new ladies on here.. I was lucky enough to fall pregnant on my 1 st cycle with Dr M doses of pred and clexane plus intralipid. After MANY IVF transfers ( double digits) ... So my advice is explore every opportunity and don't let traditional FS tell you immunology is rubbish
Me 32 / DH 36
#12 March FET PGD, Bondi Protocol + Intralipid BFP

No news from a blabber mouth like me is usually bad news. Yesterday we got the devastating news that all embryos had stopped growing, only grew by 1 cell each and told not to expect transfer to go ahead. We were in shock. Started researching donor eggs just absolutely beside myself last night, couldn't even bring myself to update you guys. Told to call this morning just to confirm it not going ahead - lo and behold a miracle happened!!!! We have 1 early blastocyst and 1 compacting morula onboard right now!!! I almost fell off my chair when they told me, many tears yesterday and this morn and had to race in for transfer as we were just ready to lay in bed and try to sleep away the pain.
Heading home now for my husband to pamper me while I lay on couch
Still can't believe it, so bloody amazed, just shows nature sometimes has a mind of it's own. Wish me luck!!! And best wishes goes out to cheals with your embies on board too. Crofty not long now for you!!

Hi Lissylou, thats's fantastic news, am very happy for you, enjoy being pampered and try to relax (so hard) over the next 2 weeks. I will definately scan that womens weekly article for you in the next couple of days. Embarrasingly, have to get my husband to show me how the scanner works! 2 in is such good news, especially seeing you havent got to day 5 in the past. I think Menopur cycle is good stuff cause I did alot better on that as well.
I am going for a curette with Dr On on Monday, he prefers to be conservative in case it is in the uterus and scrape here and send to pathology. If there is no pregnancy tissue found in the uterus, I will have to go for a laproscopy later in the week to check the tubes. My gut feeling is that it might be in the right tube as I have some very mild pain on the right side. However, after reading your story Hope I guess it is better to play it safe and try the uterus first even if it will mean two operations as I dont want to lose a tube if it isnt absolutely necessary. I still have two tubes at this stage to answer your question as I had a methotrexate injection the first ectopic (after curette showed in wasnt in the uterus) as that dr didnt feel confident he could find it being so small and surgically remove it.
Crofty - thanks for the roll call - I hadnt realised there was so many people on here Wow! It was good to get an update
B123 - I have used viagra for lining the last 2 cycles - I am not sure if it helped much, maybe a small amount. I have poor lining (6-7mm) with Viagra, it got to 8.5mm but Im not sure if that is directly attributable to the viagra as I also had higher hormones (oestrogen and progesterone) on both those cycles so maybe the viagra helped or maybe my lining was just slightly better anyway - sorry not very helpful and I havent heard of Vigra helping NK cells sorry. It is quite expensive viagra pessaries in australia (roughtly $350 for I think for 60 pessaries) dont know if it expensive for you.
Good luck all x

Hi ladies, g'day from a lurker!
Crofty, Thanks for updating the roll and thanks for including me (a non- Dr M success bfp!) all the best in the cycle.
I do love hearing the batches of bfp stories coming in after Dr M's treatment. Can't wait for the next round 😊
Kiwi I hear you about the diet going out the window. I had been eating my heart away but now I'm going to have glucose test next weekend and am hoping all the Cadbury hazelnut chocolate doesn't come back to bite me.
Lissilou, wonderful news about your embies

Thanks sandy, no rush and you will have a new skill with the scanner! Lol...
We have made it to day 5 before, but last 2 cycles were disasters with emergency transfers on day 2 & 4 being told they may not live to day 5 and it was pretty hopeless, so it would have been 3 in row and serious talk about donor eggs or other options. In a weird way I'm glad we had to face it last night as I know we will do whatever it takes and are open to whatever we need to do to have a family. We were thinking of a mix of donor and adopted and just loving whatever children we are blessed with, just put hat in ring for everything and see what happens. I want our kids to grow up knowing it doesn't matter if they are not genetically linked to me, we are a family and love each other and that's what counts, so for us donor, adopted, it's all going to be the same. (Although unfortunately in this country they make it bloody hard to adopt, which is why we would try donor first if needed - plus we are in with a chance this cycle too which just feels like a huge bonus right now as we had accepted it was over!!)
Really hope dr o finds what he needs to, my thoughts will be with you as it must be such a harrowing procedure. I've never been through anything like it. On phone so can't use emoticons, but would put in big hugs right here!
Just watched the movie Butter... Anyone seen it? Was brilliant. This gorgeous little foster girl in it melted my heart and made me think we could foster too. I'm feeling open to it all right now, which I never thought I genuinely would. Of course I realise real life is not like the movies, but the foster dad said something like they wanted to give an older kid a home cause they always get overlooked for newborns etc and it was so true. Who knows I think we might end up with a big blended family in this home! Even if we got lucky enough to have any which were biologically from the 2 of us. I've totally let go of the notion of the white picket fence/perfect family bs through all this. We just want to give love and receive all the gifts that come with opening your heart. I'm feeling so mushy right now and just can't believe we're even in with a chance right now. Hub has gone to pick up my favourite chicken laksa for dinner! Yay! And another movie planned.
Have a lovely eve girls x

Wow Romy, that's awesome about falling pregnant on 1st cycle with dr m!!! I don't want to put pressure on myself, but oh how I would love to follow in your footsteps. This is my 11th cycle all up (including iui's), 6th stim, 8th transfer.
How many weeks are you now?
11-05-2013 17:59 #889
Thanks for doing rollcall crofty! They always scared me as I have dropped off so many of them, but gotta think positive and hang in here for support either way
Good luck at EPU! Quality not quantity I say, look at me I started with 19 eggs, but it didn't mean I had a better result. Just lucky to still be in the game.
Thanks Kiwi, great to see you motoring along!! when you say 3 x pessaries, is that 3 x 400mg? That's what I'm on now post ET. Did you take pregnyl boosters (hcg) post transfer too?
B123 - I've never tried Viagra or heard of it in regards to fertility treatment either, but whatever it takes hey! I'd try anything too!
