Thanks ladies for answering. It's all starting to make a lil sense. Annoying a little if the 1st cycle would be a test run, should be at a discounted rate. Ah well. Still feeling positive for a great outcome though. I have a feeling I may not ovulate for another week or so. I am just a wee bit concerned on my hormones, my oesteron and pregestrone were always low, do the FSH injections keep those rising?
@S234 great news about your cyst getting smaller.

Just a quick uodate, so had another scan today because of left ovary was playing hide and seek on fridays, so anyway, right ovary, still has 35 small follies, and lefty came out of hiding and showed us one whopping follie at 20mm!!!! plus 2 additional ones at 10mm and 12mm. nurse was quite impressed with the big follie, and my lining has now gone from 8 to 10. another good sign. my blood have also come back looking great, I have a feeling though because *TMI* moment, I have had an increase of mucus, and the good kind, its been 8 mths since I have seen this slimy friend of mine haha. so I had asked how my oestrogen was going and she said its defiantly nicely up there where it should be.
so I do my pregnyl trigger shot of 5000in tonight at 6pm! the nurse said we need to get jiggy with it as soon as we can, and again tomorrow! I then do top up pregnyl shots of 1500in on the 31st, 3rd, 6th & 9th. Blood test on the 3rd to check ovulation did infact occur and then my bog pregnancy blood test on the 13th! my fave number! haha
how is everyone going

It's all sounding very very promising @thatwldbme! Great sized follie and lining....add in your great Oestrogen and fertile CM and I'd say you're in with a great chance! Best of luck catching that egg Xxx
AFM- I don't see my FS until this Friday and have plenty to talk to him about. I think I've been handling the chemical pretty good but then I was pretty blown away and devastated to find out last Friday that that I can't get PGD testing done on any of my frosties so we can do nothing but cross our fingers that it's not an embryo problem which has caused all of my miscarriages It's taken me 12 months to work through 4 embryos/pregnancies so who knows how long 9 frosties will take?! It's darn scary I'm actually seriously considering having my first TTC break until the new year. I don't want to be miscarrying over another Christmas. The wait will kill me but I dunno, I think I kinda need it......I'll make my mind up after talking to my FS.

Ladydee - I feel your pain hun, I can really understand you needing a break especially over the Christmas period when you had such an emotional time last year. I know it can be so hard waiting around for next date or cycle but have to say this short break I have had has done me the world of good, I seem to have relaxed a lot more, I have only kept up with this thread and stopped stressing over everything trying to stay more positive and focussed. We have both been at this game for so long hun I think we both deserve a break for our sanity. Hopefully when you speak to your FS on Friday though he will have some new action that will encourage you to take the next step more positively. If you do wait until the new year will you leave your current specialist and wait to see Wazza? So what is the reason why they can't do testing on your current embryos is it because they are frozen does it have to be done before that process?
29-10-2014 22:59 #816
Thanks Heyside, I'm glad your enforced break has been a blessing in disguise xx
I'm a bit of a blubbering mess everytime I think about it but the head Embryologist was supposed to ring me to explain how they do PGD testing on frozen embryo's at my clinic and what gets done where (yes it can be done on frosties BUT...). Anyway, the FN who was asking the Embryologist to call me ended up calling me back herself to say sorry, she should've realised that we wouldn't be able get PGD done on any of our embys because we didn't get ICSI! What the?!! Even though I had asked several times about PGD and made it clear that we were seriously considering getting it done, no one.....not my current FS, FC or second opinion FS ever once mentioned or warned us that ICSI was a vital part of the PGD process! I thought I had done quite a bit of research on PGD myself also but I never read.....or it never registered ....that we needed to get ICSI (which we don't need as we don't have sperm issues)
I would really really prefer to go straight to Wazza as I really am think I am losing hope in my current FS but I couldn't get in with him until July and there's no way I could wait until then doing nothing, I'd go nuts!!! If I didn't have any frosties then I thiiiink I would've been able to hold out until then by just trying naturally but, you know how I feel about my frosties. I might change my mind about waiting if I'm faced with a 5th m/c in a row.
I'm not sure what to do as even the great Wazza would not be able to do anything to help us if it's our embys that have problems. It's just *exhausting* constantly trying to think like a FS when I'm clearly not (and don't want to be) and am only juuuust grasping what all of these medical procedures, diagnosis's, possible causes and possible treatments are....I don't even WANT to know any of this, I just want to hand my money to a Specialist and say "help!" ....and then be helped....correctly.
Well, there's a rant for you! Lol If I have a break then I'll concentrate on trying to lose these extra kg's I've put on during this glorious 2014 as they definitely don't help things and just make me feel uncomfortable and gross.

@Ladydee how are you feeling now? My thoughts are with you.
@thatwldbe me how are you going on your TWW?
AFM- scan yesterday showed a 21mm follie! Have two others at 12 and 13mm, so took my menopur last night and will have iui on Monday- just in hope that the smaller two will grow a bit more. I am excited- but realistic last time. I think I got my hopes up too high last time. I know being optimistic is a good thing, but it just seems to make me feel like I crash down twice as hard when things don't go well. So I am taking it all with a little pinch of salt this time.
Sending you you all lots of warm fuzzies-

Ladydee hope your coping well. And heyside, enjoy your break.
I honestly can onky hope and wish the best for you 2 lovely ladies.
@S234 wow! Awesome follies.
My 2WW is a 3WW. FS prefers it this way. My pregnancy blood test is on the 13th. And my ovulation blood test is on Monday.
I have to take the pregnyl injection as top up every 3 days. So took my 1st top up yesterday. I hate them, they give you the classic symptoms of pregnancy. My boobs and nips have never been this sore or sensitive in my life. Hugging people even hurts. Have had really bad lower back pain an nausea every now and again. Wish they were the real symptoms but they wouldn't be as I had my trigger shot in Monday night and probably only ovulated on Tuesday.
Although, I did feel a sharp mild stab in my lower abdomen this morning, wondering if that maybe implantation pain, but again u think it may be too early for that.

Ladydee - Sounds like you have had a lot to deal with and think about hun, so frustrating that it wasn't explained to you that ICSI was needed for the testing to go ahead especially if they knew you were seriously considering it. July is a long wait to see Wazza hun but I really am hoping that now you have gone ahead and made the appointment you are not going to need it that's usually the way isn't it - sods law? I really am hoping you got some amazing answers from your FS yesterday and you have decided how to move forwards from here, it is awful that we have to throw ourselves into researching our own issues and suggesting ways of overcoming our problems almost doing the job of a FS but we are so invested in this process its hard not to. Thinking of you hun x
S234 - Great news on the follie hun, hoping this is the cycle for you and you can move forwards with your bfp.
thatwldbme - What a long wait for you hun 3 weeks, hope you manage to stay sane throughout that time. Presume you cant even test yourself through that time with the pregnyl injections? Good luck hope this is your cycle.
AFM - I now have only a week to wait for my appointment so not long to wait until we find out how we move forwards from here. I have taken steps to prepare myself for this next cycle. I started back at work back in September just before my last IVF cycle and found it very stressful working appointments around everything. The job was only until the middle of December and my next egg pick up is scheduled for the beginning of December so this week I made the decision to finish 2 weeks early giving myself more time to put into this next cycle. My boss wasn't very happy but I decided I had to put myself and my family first we are investing too much into this.

@S234 - great sounding follie!! Wishing you all the best in catching that egg tomorrow for this to be your cycle xx
@thatwldbme - I think that sharp stabbing pain could be a very good sign as I definitely think of that as implantation pain when I've experienced it....it's a very sharp, distinct pain huh?! Good luck Hun, I hope to be celebrating your BFP on your lucky 13th
@Heyside, yay for getting started and double yay for making the tough decision to finish up work earlier, I think that's a really good idea as you absolutely don't need any extra stress whatsoever. Sign me up for the head of your cheer-squad for this up coming cycle, I think we might be TWW'ing close to each other again x
AFM - I had my FS appointment on Friday and after thinking it over for two days, we've decided to cross our fingers and squeeze in one last cycle this year. If it ends in a BFN or another M/C then I will definitely, definitely have a two or probably three month break after that. Unless I hear from Wazza in that time! I'm going to be on a heck of a lot of drugs this cycle so I think my body would appreciate the break after this cycle if it doesn't work.
So if I've understood it all correctly, the plan for my medicated FET with Bondi Protocol is.....
*Start 12 days of Provera from today to bring on AF.
*CD1- Apply 1x50mcg Estradot patch twice weekly
*CD1-CD7 - 3x2mg Progynova tables per day
*CD8 onwards, take 4x2mg Progynova per day
* Once my lining is at least 8mm thick (which will be classed as "Ovulation" day)
- start 600mg Progesterone pessaries per day.
-Also start 1x25mg Prednisolone steroid tablet per day.
-Also start 1x0.4mL Clexane injection per day.
- continue on patches and Progynova
*FET scheduled for 5 days after pretend "ovulation" day.
No idea what I stay on or come off after this but I'm sure someone will tell me. Times sure have changed since I was pregnant with my dd and too scared to take a Panadol or even fill my car up with fuel because of the fumes!
