Hey Lindy thats great - 16 eggs woohoooo hope you've enjoyed a nice sleepy afternoon looking forward to your news in the morning
Kazza - thanks for asking after me, I'm doing okay.
Today was OTD and I did do a test but I knew the result so felt fine when I actually saw it - I dealt with the dissappointment last week. I was amazed that my OH, his Mum and my best friend actually thought the result was going to be any different! I suppose they were all hanging on to some hope but I knew.
The nurse at the clinic said expect a heavy, painful and longer period and I said well I've already had it!! She said I have to have three bleeds before trying our frozen cycle - so I've had one and so it will be around May when we get to try. I asked if we would have a follow up and she said no unless we requested one so I said I would like to have an opportunity to talk about the transfer because for me it was the worst bit but only because I don't tolerate having a full bladder very well. And because the doctor was gone before I'd even got my knickers on so the experience wasn't as expected. She said she would request an appointment for me and I could ask to be sedated for the next transfer. If this gets the doctors approval I will feel a lot happier about the process. Have to wait and see when the appt comes.
Wallie - we get two goes on the NHS - not sure how long the wait is for us between cycles. Will you do your funded cycle at the same clinic as your NHS cycle?
Samba - hope you're feeling okay hun, sending you lots of
PG - will you opt for a medicated or natural cycle - have you experienced a frozen cycle before?
Just popping back to say that we have an appointment with the Lister on 28 March, so we'll see what they have to say. Having said that, I have had an incredible explosion of awful happen in my life this past week (some expected, some not - details in my journo) so I know that whatever they say, I'm going to need to take some time away before we try again. I just don't think my mental health would survive.
Sophie - I just read your journo Thinking of you loads xxx
Lindy - Congrats on your 16 thats an amazing number!! Good luck for today!
Boofs - Only a couple of months left until your FET!!
Kazza - Not long until your follow up. Do you know how long you will have to wait to go again? I know you have to wait for 3 bleeds but is there a waiting list?
Wallie, Hippie & Please - Hope youre OK
AFM... I have an appointment on Monday with my GP to discuss options and when I spoke to her briefly I asked for Clomid and she seemed quite happy to prescribe it. So will hopefully do a couple of cycles naturally with clomid Almost naturally.... then we have our appointment with the consultant at the OFU on 20th April.... and in the meantime Ive been trying to check Coventrys T&C's for Egg Sharing as is half the price at OFU. But at the OFU if they dont collect more than 8 eggs you get to continue the cycle and keep all your eggs at no extra cost. The nurse at Coventry is off on holiday until next week.
