Hope all had a nice long weekend! I've eaten far too much chocolate!
It's only natural to feel anxious, I too go from extreme positivity to feeling certain it won't work. It can be such an emotional roller coaster. Trying to stay positive and not worry too much and hope tht this will be out time.
Started down reg on Saturday, as yet no symptoms so fingers crossed it stays that way.
Serena how are you?
Key, I can't believe they moved your appt, well done for standing your ground though. Really looking forward to heti g what your process is with the fet's.
Tinkerbell, what date is your wedding? Can't be long now.
Monkeyfeet - congrats on starting the downregging again. Fingers crossed the side effects will hold off. Did you have any side effects the first round?
Key - glad you held your own and weren't bullied into moving your appt back. You are cursed when it comes to being postponed! at least the 2 weeks extra wont stop you doing FET this month. completely understand about feeling up and down about all of this. It's easy to swing between being sure it'll work and being sure it wont. I guess we all need to try to stay positive, but sometimes it's easier said than done! As Kazza said once you start again it will help to feel positive as you get caught up in each step of the process.
Kazza - not long now before BCP, how are you feeling?
I've got tons of side effects now! down regging has kicked in full swing since coming off the BCP. Had 1 week of being SO tired & coldy (might have had a cold as well, not sure, but a lot worse when I took the sniffers for about 4 hours and then would wear off a bit) and now the headaches are back with avengence. Had yesterday off I felt so rough. But back at work and counting the minutes until I can go home and go straight to bed. I am actually really looking forward to the injections as they sorted out the headaches last time. Going to ask on Wed if I can have a bigger dose and will see what they say.
Sorry to hear about the headaches serena - i remember that part and it was s**ty! Hopefully not too long until you start injections
Kazza - how exciting not too long until you start bcp and then sniffers
My end no AF yet normally i am between 30 -32 days, now at day 34. Now sure if it is expected that it's late after an ivf cycle, anyone know? Typical it was slightly early last month for my testing month, so i knew before i tested!
have a good rest of week, not long until weekend..
Hope you're all well and all feeling ok. Sorry to hear the side effects of down regging have kicked in Serena, doesn't sound nice at all
Haven't been on much lately as busy with last minute wedding/holiday things, we leave in 10 days and just 17 until the wedding
AF arrived this evening along with horrible cramps which have thankfully calmed down now, feeling slightly excited that the next time she shows up I'll be calling Guys to get started.
Hello everyone, hope you all had a lovely weekend.
Tinkerbell - one week until you leave! Have a great wedding & honeymoon x
Kazza - has AF turned up yet? Are you back on the BCPs? I started BCP on day 5 this round! I think it helped with the sniffer side effects having them cross over at the beginning. Hope you're ok x
Key - Hope AF has turned up. I don't know but I think it's probably normal for your cycles to be a bit irregular after ICSI. Mine have been overly regular and I feel like i've mroe or less had AF non-stop since the last round! Hope it turns up soon if it hasn't already.
Monkeyfeet - how are you getting on?
AFM - Same symptoms as before. The headaches and tiredness are awful and I can't wait until Wed to get back on the injections. They have sent a new Gonal F pen - did any of you have the new one in the last round? Is it easy to use?
My gonal-f pens where white and red too, not sure if that's new style but they were pretty easy to use.
AF came on Sunday (stupidly i was beginning to think maybe there was a chance i could be bfp - i guess i won't learn!!). So now just waiting for meeting next Monday to learn the FET process and go from there
Serena - good luck with your appt tomorrow, will you be starting injections then?
hope everyone else is well and on track. Tinkerbell not long at all until wedding and hols - very jealous
