ST I'm sorry you're up and down, it's good that you're getting some counselling though and it sounds like you have a really good plan for your next cycle too. I found H&E were only really willing to be helpful with extras for my 3rd cycle, by which time I was nhs so they then couldn't be
I am on clexane, is that a heparin? It's ok, one injection a day in my tummy, it causes bruises but looks worse than it feels.
I went to my gynae for my betas, although it's caused more worrying than reassurance....I'm not usually a worrier but H&E told me I *needed* over 30 and that just sort of set me off on the wrong foot really
Yeah it will be clexane, ooh maybe that's what did the trick for you this time! I can't remember if you said you are having anymore betas? Or just waiting for scan? How many days/ weeks are you? I have never heard of it needing to be over 30 before, interesting.
Oh nell I really think this is it for you! After all the time you have waited....xxxx
ST - I'm 6 weeks today and no more betas planned, hoping to just stay sane for my scan at the end of this week. H&E said under 30 is greater risk for non viable pg and ectopic
I had awful ovary pains last night, but trying to just stay balanced. I think what's scarey is that unlike a natural pg the drugs keep AF away, so I wouldn't have any telltale red bleed if things weren't right.
I did pretty much everything different this round, so who knows what help things work really. My lining was 6/7mm only still at trigger, but then for the first time it thickened for transfer and was 16mm, conservatively 13mm, David said - I took different stimm meds, different trigger and progesterone injections so maybe one of those helped sort my lining? I also corrected my vitamin D deficiency, took a long course of AB's for possible uterine infection, on higher steroids, higher clexane, intralipid drips and had an aquascan before the cycle. We just threw everything at it
I've read really good things about the endometrial scratch, fingers crossed it does the trick for you along with the clexane
Hey ST - nice to hear from you again. Sorry you are having a hard time at the moment, I hope that the counselling helps. Lets hope that all these changes that H&E are making will do the trick for all of us xxx
Nell - still keeping my fingers crossed for you and the scan this week xx
Smiledreamer - thanks for the encouraging words xxx
We were hoping to cycle again in may/june so would be joining you ST but have no idea what will happen now. Not sure how long to leave it before trying to chase up what our gp is doing about any appeal letter. It feels like ages already but as its been easter and everthing, she hasnt actually had long. Think we will leave it until the end of the week and try and ring the surgery. Still feel in limbo!
St - i did speak to Sarah she said that there was some sort of mistake but to top it of i wont be starting my treatment now until i get my next AF but im ok waiting now means i can just enjoy time with my DP
and yes i will be having that pipelle thing think they said to me that everyone else is going to be having that now.
Thanks for the info Lisa! Ru having the scratch thing this cycle then, day 21 I think they said to me. I got to have AF , then scratch thing, then starting on AF after that! This all could take forever though as my cycles tend to be long!
Just popping in with a quick AAM update, sorry, i'll pop back in tomorrow to read everyones updates....
Good heartbeat seen
Unfortunately I am measuring behind, shouldn't be a huge surprise with my low HCG, but really you can't be *behind* with IVF too far can you?! . I should be 6weeks+4 today but measure 5w+5, being up to 5 days or ahead or behind is normal, so i'm just outside that normal at 6 days behind. But the sonographer said the heartbeat is the important thing
And no ectopic so I get to go on my holiday too, all be it like a junkie with a heap of syringes and belly bruises
Yay for a heartbeat Nell, thats fantastic!!!!!
Where are you going on holiday?
ST - I worry about having to have the scratch thing too....my cycles get ridiculously long if I am stressed and waiting to ovulate. Th stress of waiting stops it happening so could take forever. My plan of cycling in may/june looks like it wont happen,, have no idea if we will have funding let alone then having to wait for my cycles to do their thing!
