Thanks for all the advice ladies. I think I will book some time off after transfer.

I have been doing acupuncture weekly. I'm not sure if it is doing anything but the acupuncturist said she is working to improve my egg quality. Who knows! I have also cut down drinking to a few glasses on the wknd. I think I will stop all together once the drugs start. Also doing a bit of reflexology. The problem is that in everything else in my life I have so much control. I think I do all these things to try and control this outcome but at the same time it feels so out of my hands.

Wishing you ladies all the best

Ttc - I know cetrotide works well for most people. I think maybe they just avoid it if you already have really poor egg quality as there are other drugs which are kinder to eggs. But if your eggs are ok no need to worry I'm sure.

Astermou, I'm the same, I like to let myself believe I'm controlling things by having a plan and doing things like acupuncture or supplements. I think even if feeling relaxed and in control helps then its worth it really. I had acu and reflexology for a while and enjoyed both and found it so relaxing!

Aster- Oh yes this LTTTC has been such a lesson in control. It has really taught me to let go and allow....It is something I work on daily but it is true. At the end of it all, it is no longer up to us.

Mrs W - Thanks for letting me know.

I have to say I find it a bit of a relief when we do treatment as I am so sick of the ttc every month and it just doesnt happen. This really is our best hope of ever being pregnant again (I have 1 tube and its more than likely blocked once again, our last gynae appointment the consultant said he believes the chances of achieving a natural pregnancy are 0)

As for doing anything in preperation for treatment I am trying to lose some weight and have upped my water intake.
I will be using buserelin, progynova and cyclogest during my FET.

everyone sorry I'm quiet not much to report as just waiting on af please hurry up!!!

I'm doing nothing different just taking a multi vitamin like last time, I don't really drink so don't need to worry about that... I have a toddler this time around so I'm sure there will not be much relaxing like last time

Hope everyone is having a lovely day

Yes I agree, after 6 years of BFN's I feel better during my medicated cycles as it gives me hope.

Yes hurry up AF. Are you using frosties from your previous IVF cycle or are you doing a new IVF cycle?

AFM - I am taking the same vitamins that my Dr prescribed during my IVF cycle. I got rid of the ones that were for egg quality only so I am taking - Vitamin E, L-Arginine, Acai Berry, Fish Oil, and a prenatal. I am also doing a wheatgrass shot.

I am throwing all I can at this! Not sure if they help but they help my sanity LOL.

C&J - I know how you feel, I love doing treatment and can never wait for the cycle as I have given up on any hope of a natural pregnancy and so a treatment cycle feels like a realistic chance to me. Upping water intake is meant to be very important for blood flow so fingers crossed.

scerena - hope af hurries up!! Wear your best white pants, that usually helps!! haha. Yep I have a 3 year old so she keeps me busy!

TTC you are brave, wheatgrass is yuck! Hope it helps though, I am with you if it give you hope its worth trying!

Have a lovely weekend ladies!
