LOLOLOL @ all the gas explotions here and over the big pond!!!
Awww Bambine - stay chilled lovely and keep laughing - you too Katrus and Wishing ((hugs))
Lochy - hope your other 10 get a move on over the weekend!! Come on eggies please.
LOL Springy at your OH being your alarm call! They do come in useful sometimes don't they! Glad your follies are still doing well!!
Reb - any news on when you'll be going in?
Lisa and MM how are you doing?
I've a few bruises from inj - do you lot have any tips to prevent them or is it just luck of the draw? I'm injecting first thing as just following what they told me! I think I'd rather do it at night as I'm not a morning person and find it all a bit of a rush. Glad I have my injecting assistant at the ready though!
Can someone answer a question someone asked me? What makes them decide whether you need to down reg or not? Is it due to any condition you might have or is it down to the clinic? If you do short protocol at what stage of your cycle do you start off?
I still feel fine - a few ovary tweeks here and there, quite tired yesterday and not sleeping too well, apart from that - just want all this to be over with asap!!
Yeah, I just got back from the store with two bottles of my own prunny juice trying to go organic all the way for a couple more weeks until the embies settle in completely. Damn those organic juices are expensive! I choose the ones that are not from concentrate, and I loaded on some more pomegranate, acai, carrot and grapefruite juices. A few days ago got some brazil nuts too, they are not the best tasting, but it's said to have a lot of selenium which helps with implantation. I really really hope my efforts will be paid off!
Reb, I wish B&B had a 'like' button - your last post would be getting a big fat one, made me laugh a lot I feel left out not on prune juice, maybe I should go and buy some just to join in!! Is it just to get things moving or are there other good properties?
Also, is there any such thing as a normal follicles return? Any minimum numbers - I should prob just be pleased I have some eggies on route instead of being hung up on sizes. Positive mental attitude here I go!
I do mine in a morning too Rata and dont have a problem with bruises and you cant even really see the injection spot. I dont know what others are told but i was just told to go in at an angle which works for me coz i barely even feel it (i do have a bit of padding tho lol)
Im not doing too bad hun thanks for asking. I was mega mega bloated yesterday and in a bit of discomfort but AF showed today so im guessing it was that
Lochbride I too have a low amh of 5 and when I went in for my one week follie scan I was disappointed and had to go back mondayonly had 10mm ones. Went back on the monday and had to go for another scan on the wednesday and didnt have ec till friday afternoon so give it time it just takes a bit longer for them to grow but they def will. All those 10mm ones can keep growing. I eventually got 10 eggs, slow and steady, its hard and each day feels like an eternity but stay positive. X x x
On the subject of prune juice, these threads are sooooooo funny, we should be getting commission for all this increase in sales of sunsweet prune juice. Lol
Well, it's not blooming working here! Okay - here's the list.
1 can of prunes;
1 jar prune juice;
1 tin baked beans;
Any more ideas?!
Downregging is usually done - there are a few clinics here in the UK who don't - I think they do a 'natural' cycle, but success is low as they don't have control of your cycle. I think there are also a few medical conditions that preclude downregging. But I'm probably talking out of my backside. Well, nothing else is coming out of it!!! hahahahaha!
Fingers crossed that I don't get my embies put back tomorrow, but can hold off till Tuesday - please, please, embies!
Love to all x
Well ladies I solved my gas problem today with eating small amounts and not having big meals and I used GasX I will be purchasing the prune juice for before retrieval and before my transfer to make sure things are good and clear for both of those procedures!
MrsMax how are ya??
I'm not sure why I haven't bruised ... maybe I have enough fat for the needles to avoid any blood vessels I also have very hard veins to find so I think that my veins etc. are a lot deeper than most peoples so that may also have to do with it. I also am using 30 gauge needles which are SUPER tiny and I inject the 1mL solution really slowly - 10 seconds.
I'm curled up on the couch for the evening with an Easter Creme Egg and The Muppets Movie!!!
Oh - and whether to choose DR or not, my last clinic told me that it is really up to physician preference and what they are comfortable with as there is really no difference in the success rates using a long vs a short and mine is kind of a hybrid of the two. I am not using a true suppression med like a Suprefact or a Lupron but I was suppressed with the BCP and then started on a short protocol. If that makes any sense at all ....
OMG, the joy. Cup of coffee and a run round the park - the old fashioned methods work every time. Oh joy.
Don't get too freaked out, Katrus! I can't watch scary movies!
Hope all are well - who's up next for EC? I've lost track of where everyone is.
Lisa - if AF is here, are you off for your scan soon?
I'm waiting to hear embryologist report this morning. (Biting nails!)
