    My lining on Wed was 14mm. It’s thicker than I wanted but DrW still seems happy with that. The estrogen was up to 8 mg a day. Maybe 6 would have been enough max.
    Started the progesterone. I prefer the poke to the gel. He did put me on 40 mg clexane once a day. They are R100 each here which is pricey I think. I’m not minding it. Transfer is Monday.
    As for Dr. W I liked him a lot. He met me in jeans His nurse is also warm and lovely.
    Not sure what happened with CFC but I detected a bit of derision.
    On a sad note, a lovely lady I had rented from a couple of times was murdered. She was found in the trunk of her burnt BMW. I believe the husband may have been arrested. All so sad������
    Hope all are well on their leg of this journey.
    Oh thats very very sad to hear.
    I hope aside of that you are enjoying your time in SA, i kept on with pio s well the gel is a terrible mess haha.
    Currently 10 wks with twins!
    Good luck for your journey xx

    Default Transfer done

    Have two lovely embies on board now. Into the dreaded 2ww. I’m to remain on clexane for awhile after a BFP. They would like me to switch to the crinone gel as well but it’s so yuk. It seems like you need a sledge hammer to get it out and the dry irritated vagina thing is too much🙄
    DrW seemed to think with embryos of this quality there’s no reason not to get pregnant.
    We have 7 left. I wasn’t like jumping up and down and they were looking at me funny. But when you’ve been in that chair 5x and doing the same scenario you tend to just want to reserve the applause.
    Here’s hoping........
    To all of you lovely diligent mothers to be blessings💋

    @Imbusi 1 I'm on prednisone and have been for the last 2 transfer attempts. Going thru Dr M in Sydney who specialises in immune issues. 2nd transfer has been successful so far but we are still only at 9 weeks so long way to go b4 I am comfortable saying we are pregnant. Started the steroids weeks b4 the transfer and am apparently not coming off them until after 14 weeks maybe longer.

    Thank you for the well wishes. This can be a solitary journey at times. I came alone so didn’t really do much.
    Baby dust for you next month Faith15💋
    I started prednisone 5mg on my own prior to transfer. The low dose is harmless, but the thing to decide is how long to stay on it. Some say a few days after transfer. Just to keep the uterus ‘’quiet ‘’ to assist implantation. But other clinics say from two weeks post BFP to as long as 7 weeks. Of course there are those who need to take higher doses for longer time.
    I threw everything at this cycle:/
    Happy to hear the lovelies who are pregnant are feeling good. Try to relax and enjoy your time☺️

    Have any of you ladies done hysteroscopy?
    I was required by Dr P, done most of the blood test reqd.. I just don’t know what to expect with this test?

    Default Hysteroscopy

    Hi I have done this. They are looking to see if your tubes are blocked, scarred or have fluid in them. It wasn’t distressing. I had some discomfort when they tried to push the dye on a semi blocked tube. Good luck and hope all is well

    Hi ladies, well we lost both other babies over the last week, I started miscarriaging the first one last wednesday and then the second on Saturday I was in that much pain they took me into surgery Monday and now I'm recovering from an infection. It has been the longest and hardest and most traumatic week. I cant imagine how you can be that strong @faith15 to have been through what you have been through. I want so much to try again but am so very scared. I wish everyone heading to Cape town good luck and those that are pregnant may you carry full term and be so blessed with a beautiful baby or babies x
