I swear ur story mirrored mine, except you've been through so much more with the surgeries and the endometriosis.
I hope u catch a break real soon.
Question: will u be away for the full mnth? Or just the 4 day- ish from af to cd3? Because it's only for the few days and depending on where u're going, u could still go ahead this cycle provided u can access a Laverty path lab. U will only need to do cd2 BT and have ur injections with u. The first monitoring BT and Scan will most likely be on CD 7(?)
Don't worry about the long post
I don't know about the others, but I like long posts ..
@ABG79- where have u been hun?! Ah under the doona and doing roley poleys with ur hubby maybe? ;p
I'm doing a FET end of April - most likely the 27th, so I'll be having a 'benched' cycle in May unfortunately hun. I'll have poms poms on hand cheering u ladies on for sure!
Did u have to get extra BT done during ur benched cycle to make sure hormones are back to normal?

Mimimoo, you have had such a full on journey! Hope you get some good results ASAP 😊
@ABG79 Thank You! Yes I'm an IVF virgin-very first cycle 😝 it's been great to read through everyone's experiences on here, will hopefully make everything a little less daunting being our first cycle.....somewhat know what to expect. In saying that I know it's important to expect the unexpected too haha! We are on Antagonist cycle - 225 Gonal F, Orgalutran and Ovidrel 😊

Hello everyone, hope you are all having a fabulous weekend.
@Mimimoo, I agree with @tjuls and @ABG79. If you are only going to be away for a few days, then it might be possible, I think the first BT / scan is Day 5 or so. But you will definitely have to do a BT/Scan on Day 1 of AF full flow. Then you get a text message to ask you to pick the meds up. Then the next BT / scan is usually morning of Day 4 or 5, so if you can get back before that, and have your meds with you, then it might work. After this first BT / scan, I remember I got instructions for the antagonist (second jab).
Either way, it won't be too long until you get going! Once you start, time flies!
@ABG79, I am excited for you! Let us know how it goes. My FS appt was so quick, was basically to sign the consent forms for FET. But I totally forgot to ask about meds / Crinone when I went for my appt, so make sure you get to ask all the Qs you want answers for!
@onedaymaybebaby, you are going to ace this for sure!
@tjuls, 27 April is arriving soon! WOOHOO! Better rest up lots before that.
AFM, I feel tired and sluggish most of the time. I swear it's the progesterone and not the pregnancy though. I am also rather bloated and constipated and I read that progesterone slows down the digestive system. Compared to my previous pregnancy, I am not feeling as hungry, so I am just taking my regular meals and eating smaller portions when I don't feel as hungry. Been trying to eat more fruit and yoghurt to help with the constipation. Other than that, the usual cramps and lower back pain when sitting too long, but no dramas yet. I am trying SO hard not to overthink things or stress out worrying but I am wondering whether I should go to my GP and ask her to order another BT next week to see of HCG / P4 is rising normally.

Any experiences with Primary Ivf? #2
After so many unsuccessful cycles we decided to see a Reproductive Immunologist (Dr M) to check for immune issues, I now have to have a bunch of blood tests checking NKC and depending on the results I may need a biopsy as well. Dr M asked if I have endo or PCOS, no endo that I know of but I do have mild PCOS. Have you been checked for those?
I'll see him again the 3rd week of May, he's a very busy man so I'll keep you posted on the results. He said that our problem, other than my DHs swimmers, is implantation.
You can google "Is my body baby-friendly?" book by Dr A. B eer, is all about immune issues and the inability to get pregnant.

@clucky14, That sounds like an awesome, "you gonna nail this for sure" plan! I hope you enjoy the acupuncture sessions because I very much enjoy mine. It's a nice chill out time for me to just focus on my body. I hope May rolls around for you quickly and that you will enjoy the holidays too in the meantime.
Big hugs @Kookii , I hope the tests will shed some useful information for you.
How are you @hopefulangel1987? I hope you are feeling better now.
@tjuls, how did you BT and scans go? I am quite excited for you! Are you set to start FET next week?
I am having the most boring yet frustrating day at work. And am also suffering from bouts of anxiety and paranoia.

@Kookii- I hope Dr M has some answers for you when you see him in a months time. Gosh the wait for the results must be just as bad as the tww huh?
@clucky14- hope you enjoy your holiday and the acupuncture sessions! come back in all your zen-ness and kick this ivf in the butt first go!!
@VickyP- I was waiting for instructions from nurse before posting .. Sorry I havent been much entertainment this cycle... just a whole heap of waiting again..haha
Anyways- had BT and scan this morning- Results came back and I am due for another BT and scan on Wed. I'm on cd12 today and this time last cycle, I was instructed to trigger.. Which can I say, I havent got answers to as to why ( Must bring this up with Dr SG) but I suspect it has something to do with my E2 levels.
Most of you ladies will know that I'll try ANYTHING ..( as we all)..The craziest being last cycle with the Vacial ( Vagina Steaming).. this cycle is...( queue drum roll....) VITEX
Yup.. I'm defintely sure my E2 level and looking at my lining which was 14.3mm was the culprit- I read a study about high E2 and shorter fertile windows. So this cycle, when af finished, I started taking Vitex to balance out my E2 and Prog levels. And I'm happy that its actually working.. YAY!! Today's lining = 8.78mm
I dont know if this means I'm a little closer to that BFP but, I'm happy its put my mind at ease the E2 and the trigger.
How are you doin my cycle buddy @LillyM? 2 more days til apptment with FS
