I'm so sorry you're going through this, Yomo. And I'm also mad your boss betrayed your trust like that. I don't live in the UK so I don't know how the legal system works, but I think you can get some redress from this. As long as they can not physically prove that your work has suffered, they do not have any basis for this discrimination. Good luck dear. I pray you're able to get justice on this!
Yomo, that is terrible!! It's hard to believe that sort of thing can still happen in this day and age. I think you should lodge a grievance! I'm thinking of you, and hope that you get a resolution on this.
Daisii, it's nice to see you and I'm glad that you and the bean are well and happy!
Zee zee, welcome to the thread! I remember the clomid mood swings well. Hang in there, hopefully it will all be worth it in the end.
Palmer, fingers crossed the witch stays away for you love.
Thanks to all for your votes of confidence about me and my many eggs! One more scan at 8am tomorrow, then hopefully I will know when I can get the little treasures out. They are starting to hurt!!
MrsJA- wow that sounds great...16!!!! I have a good feeling about this for you....
caz - yeah hun that is how I felt also...clomid makes everything else hurt. I recently found out it is because it could make endo flare up more....which of course makes me think even more that I have it.
Yomo - I am so with you....a chore is an understatement. I really hope those people at your work get what they deserve for treating you this way!
zee - welcome hun...I can understand the mood swings...crazy what hormones can do huh!
afm I had a slight temp drop this morning so I am thinking it is heading downwards....we will see what tomorrow brings.
Jess - I'm not familiar with the IVF process so excuse my question if it should be obvious...will they be able to set some of your 16 aside for a subsequent IVF? I imagine they'll only use a few this time. Does that mean you don't have to go through this stimulation & collection process again?
Yomo - I would be in my HR department pronto. If they don't have cause, I can't imagine how they'll get away with it.
I am patiently waiting to ovulate and still enjoying a low pressure cycle. I wish I ovulated a little earlier in my cycle to cut down on the waiting game. Does anyone know if ovulating around CD18 means there could be some issue? I'm trying not to be unexplained!
Thanks everyone for you lovely words as well as your advice. We don't have a HR department which is really difficult. I have seeked advice and they have told me as many of you said I have to raise a grievence. I had an informal chat with my boss today, I asked her to for the reasons why I have been demoted and also asked why I had not been given any warnings. She came out and said that if I appeal it then basically I shall be put through the disaplinary procedure and sacked! I really don't know what to do! I am scared that I am going to end up without a job which normally wouldn't be an issue but my husband was made reduncant 3 weeks ago.
On the plus side I got a positive opk lastnight! I was soooo bloated and very tender around my cervix alot more than last month. My heart was not in it but I still managed to get one in and I used loads of preseed.
