Wells - I defo think you should go to the GP. They will refer you to a consultant and get the tests done and hopefully give you a shot of IVF on the NHS. They have to respect that you know what you want. Maybe see a different dr.
Babybell - That is such great news. I can't wait to hear your I love that term PUPO. It must be such a good feeling. So that is really good that they transfered them as blasts. Such a better success rate. Is that what they are doing with everyone? I really can't wait. I have to wait until after easter now to get the ok. I will be willing my cycle away more than ever. Is 2 the most they would put in? could be twins sorry for all the questions.
Quick question: did you stay in a hotel for trigger and EC? If so can you recommend one please?! I'm aware that my trigger and EC are coming up v soon (11 follies and E2 levels of 2000 yesterday - day 7) and I haven't even thought about how to organise things logistically!
Cass they do 3 or 5 day transfers depending on how your embies are doing.
They only recommend putting back 1 blast but I told them I wanted 2
I wanted to give us the best chance of success
Space wow look at you go!!! Really excited for you
We stayed in a hotel for the night of the trigger, the following night and went home after egg collection.
We stayed at the ramada encore which was a bit of a trek away and was ok but I'm sure you can find something nicer closer. Westfield shopping centre is not far from there - make sure you check it out.
The nearest tube to the hospital is 10 mins away so as long as you get a hotel near the tube you can get there in no time
We parked the car up at the hotel and just jumped on and off the tube for a couple of days.
I am not doing so good. I am having cramps and have been spotting pink since last night. Last month I started spotting a week before my period so it's around the same time. I am 3dp5dt
I called the nurse and she didn't really say much just if it gets worse to call them and rest.
I am feeling really pessimistic and feel that it's over before my lil embies have had a chance
Babybell - do not panic - every positive story I have read in the last few months has had some spotting (even full on bleeding) and cramps. If it was AF the progesterone would not be doing its job... which is unlikely. I'm more worried about not having cramps and some spotting - my last natural BFP I had slight spotting.. my BFN on first cycle had no bleeding til 10 days past OTD. Hang in there.
Thanks for the advice - we decided on the Premier Inn in Hammersmith... OH was interested in the "full English" on offer for breakfast!!! I feel sick just thinking about it at the moment!
AFM - Scan on Friday revealed about 16 follies ranging from 9 -20 mm.. they had a bit of a growth spurt and I have 4 over the 17 mm line and a bunch at about 15mm - trigger is tonight! so excited. Am having bloods taken through the night tonight - anyone else had this? Bit spooked at the idea of spending the night at the clinic with no one else around!
Well the spotting and cramps seem to have eased off now. No sign of spotting at the moment so I'm hoping it was a good sign.
It's so hard not to panic.
I did have implantation bleeding last time I had a BFP so hopefully this is the same.
Space you can't go wrong with a premier inn! I love London - do you live far?
Wow that is great I am so excited for you.
So collection on Monday then. You will be first in I imagine as they like to do the kisspeptin study first.
I didn't have bloods through the night. Ali was in a conference and they didn't mention it again to me so we went for dinner with my sis instead.
When we went for the trigger it was literally us and the 2 docs in the unit! They met us outside the ivf bit and took us round to the posh part at the back of the hospital.
Let me know how you get on space. In my case the kisspeptin did a fine job as out of my 11 eggs 10 were mature! So it's definitely doing what they want it too and I had no signs of OHSS either
Hi i am new I have just made an appointment for the trial. I have pcos been trying for 2 years I have a 9 year old son and I am just on my 6th and last round of clomid. Don't think this round will work so hoping I get accepted for the trial
