Sparky, don't panic! Has the clinic got back to you yet? Sorry I've been a bit quiet. I've had my follow up chat at the clinic & the docs have given me a 40% chance of a successful pregnancy with my last two frosties & I get a bonus 5% making it 45% as I've already had a BFP from this "batch". (Doesn't seem right calling my embies that, but couldn't think what else to write). They have also said I could have HRT patches instead of tablets next time in a bid to avoid a repeat performance of the i...

Hi everyone. Hope everyone is well. Sorry I've been q bit quiet recently... 2ww syndrome perhaps. Anyway tomorrow is OTD for me. I've had a few twinges & have felt really tired, but that's about all. I don't remember feeling this tired last time, but I didn't have a toddler then!! Anyway we now just have to wait & see what tomorrow brings. Wish me luck!

Birdii, the leaflet from my clinic says that a positive no matter how faint is still a positive. your clinic says the same. Thinking of you

Ladies, thanks for all your wishes. I am now PUPO!!!!! I had 2 little embies put back, although they had to thaw 3 (was about to type "defrost" but that just sounds so wrong) as number 2 did not continue to develop as they had hoped. ET was interesting as they had to have 2 attempts. When the catheter was checked, one cheeky little embie had decided stay there and play for a bit longer, but came to mummy at the second time of asking. That makes the little thing sound like a toddler, but consider...

Good luck for today, Dee. I've got absolutely everything crossed for you. They says clinics do things differently always interests (& slightly bemuses me). When OTD comes round for me, I will just have to do an HPT (provided by the clinic) & then phone them with the result. I'm also waiting for a call from the clinic today. I went for my lining scan yesterday & it came in at 12.5mm so we are on for ET next week. They are calling me to let me know exactly when. The slightly scary moment was when ...

1st IVF round and acupuncture!

Hi Kate, Like AG, I cannot recommend acupuncture highly enough. I didn't have it with my fresh cycle, but did with my FET & bingo. Don't know what made the tx work, but I certainly felt less stressed. Am having it this time as well. My acupuncturist is a fully registered practician & has done the Zita West acupuncture for fertility courses. I found him through a Google search. Some clinics / midwives may be able to recommend someone. Good luck with your cycle.

Hi everyone, Just to update you, had my DReg appointment yesterday & although the scan suggested that I had not yet achieved DR (lining was still 6mm), the clinic has just phoned to say that the blood test they did as well had confirmed DR, so I can start my HRT on Sunday as originally planned. As for my mum, thank you for all the PMA vibes, but sadly she is really ill. She has secondary liver cancer & the tumour has caused a blockage. Things are not looking too good.

Hi ladies, If anyone has some PMA vibes going spare, could you send them my way? Am feeling a bit stressed as my brother phoned last night to say my mum is in hospital. She's having scans today to work out what the exact problem is. Could be a long day waiting for my brother to phone with the info. Thanks

Hi Tinkerbell, Sorry to hear about the OHSS. I know some ladies have a natural FET, but mine is a medicated one, so the protocol is longer. I don't know which one your clinic will offer. Will a medicated FET, the first bit is DR as you will have done with your ICSI, starting on CD 21. You then go onto HRT for stimms, but this is to thicken the womb lining. You get scans during this time to check how things are progressing. When the lining is thick enough, you start the pessaries until ET and con...

Nursery for 12 month old! Wobbles & don't know what to do!

Snoop, I know how you are feeling. DS is now 27 months old. I returned to work when he was 11 months old. DH & I don't have anyone nearby to help with childcare, so it had to be nursery or childminder. Found a wonderful nursery & took DS for settling in sessions. On his 2nd one, I had to leave him there for 30 mins & when I went back to collect him, I could hear him sobbing even before I had got through the door. I felt like the world's worst mum. It was so bad that when I took him to a local st...

Hi everyone, Just thought I'd give you a quick update. Day 12 of down reg drugs for me & appointment at the clinic on Thursday. If all is going to plan then I should start HRT a week today!
