Misty love the walking frame comment we call them walkers here
That time frame is normal for hosp discharge - studies show people do way better at home they sleep and eat better. I can't speak for the UK health system but get her to do those exercises the physio teaches her
Pm if you have any question my being a nurse an home care case manage I could help if needed
Afm I'm spotting so af has regulated ( well this cycle). Dh had his appoitment to be referred he should here from the urologist in a few weeks for his consult appoitment
I'm starting to feel ok with it never happening even though I would still love it.
I'm still praying for us all to get that miracle bfp and baby
Misty, I'd say go for it, as butterfly said ewcm is a good sign. I notice that ofton I get ewcm a few days before ovulation, then it lessens to come back at ovulation.
Glad to hear your mum is coming home, althought you do feel its a bit soon. Think its best to get her up and moving about as soon as possible and as pdmc said having her in her home environment is best place for her. Luckily you just live round the corner....
Definatley should bd tonight before you move to your mums.
Keep checking in on us bigger...you have indeed a lot going on.
Think butterfly is spot on with the levels of fsh and Lh. Think its good to have them in a ratio as close to 1:1 at cd 2 or 3.
My tsh is also 4 but none of the fertility spec seem overly concerned....despite reading on all the USA sites that it should be below 2.5.
Thanks for all the well wishes for baseline scan. All went ok and no cysts etc. have given myself 2 injections today so think I'm getting the hang of it.
Have to go back next Monday (Easter monday but clinic is opened briefly in the morning) to check progress. Appointment is a at 7.40am which means I'll need to be up around 6 am on a bank holiday
PDMCD - thank you, i may well call on your expertise. I'm glad to hear your cycle has regulated.
I'm glad to hear you say you "feel ok with it never happening even though I would still love it. still praying for us all to get that miracle bfp". It sums my feelings up too. It's a gentler place to be than that awful crazily desperate one We all know it well.
Butterfly - i think you're right. It's meant to be a better journey for the swimmers if there's EWM. Swim you buggers!
Pippi - glad your scan went well. And well done with your injections! <squeemish here>
6am on a bank holiday - that's dedication ay? lol
AFM - I think my concerns about mum coming home too soon are fueled both by the dogmatic admin staff at her Book In keeping on about how ''everyone is expected to be out within 3 to 5 days as they need beds'' and also by the experiences of my friend when she had her knee replacement (in the same unit) in 2010. She had so many set backs due to accidentally bashing it in the very early days trying to cope at home, straining it and not getting much medical back up, that it has never healed properly Anyway - they're muttering about tomorrow morning as home time now, as she tried crutches yesterday rather than the frame, and she went and bashed the knee with one of them while trying to turn round. Ouch!
As for TTC - we DTD last night Thanks for the advice lovelies. I had to tell DH this is the week. Trying to find excuses to seduce him in my mums shed just wouldn't have worked He'd have thought i'd lost the plot. At least this way he knows we might have to engineer a quiet half hour at home together on Thursday and/or Friday. The things we have to do! So romantic. Not!
Hi everyone....still lurking but no big developments here. On the Pill waiting for first IVF cycle to start. If this is a bust then we are done. I just feel like we are ticking-boxes now so we can say "we tried" and then move on.
Pdmcd...good luck with DHs consult and op and the process of adjusting to what will come next.
Mistyy...hope you can find the time...having the same problem here grrr. DTD to-order is not fun!
Pippi...my fertility specialist is also an endocrinologist. She told us categorically at our consult that implantation is significantly affected at TSH levels over 2.5 and she normally won't proceed with a cycle if it comes back higher. Well...mine came back at 2.7 But she's left me a phone message today saying my follow-up test didn't show an increase and since my other tests were very good she's going to proceed. I could almost hear the "but" in her voice.... sigh.
Can understand now misty why you are reluctant for them to discharge your mum, basically you feel they are doing it to meet targets and to suit themselves rather than putting your mum first.
Maybe you get your mum to play 'weaker/sicker' than she is and they'll have to keep her another day or two. ...
Thanks for the maddy. The uk doctors seem to ignore the USA recommendations and for that matter, recommendations from other continents as I see you are in Australia. Apart from demanding they treat me for something they don't think that is an issue there's noting I can do. I'll print out some relevant science papers and bring them along and confront them next time I have a review consultation. They just say its old eggs.....wish I was a few years younger and at least they could nt use that argument with me.
When do you start your IVF? I feel for us this is the last roll of the dice...
Pippi I know what yu mean by the docs not being interested if you are within 'normal' levels. I have bought a supplement from amazon that I am trying, just search for thyroid supplements if y are interested. I guess it may not be great now that have started ivf anyway. I'll let you know how I get on. My most notable symptom is not being able to get warm ( I sometimes feel like putting gloves on in the house ) so I'm hoping that might change
Well I went to see the FS yesterday - at least she never put the MC down to my age fully she gave me a load of statistics and then some dates for various tests depending on my cycle dates
A blood test CD2 - CD5
A further blood test - CD18
Clotting Blood Tests
Chromosome Blood Test
All of the above is great news and she will be able to see what is going on with my body - she was interested in my charting as well and could see just from glancing how long LP was, cycle, AF etc.
These tests are carried out in another county so looks like I will have to be traveling a lot too
For the next 3 months however until all the tests are back she has recommended protected sex in fact she stressed that abstaining would be even better no chance of an oopsie - of course I will test this month just in case
So ladies I will continue to temp as that at least gives me some indication as to when she will arrive.
And I will continue to pop in here from time to time and cheer you on but at the moment I am feeling very deflated of course I can understand the reasoning behind but............
Very fast post too you ladies let know how going..
AFM: How am I doing on TTC wise? Had a blood draw done on day 5 an the results are in but will call tomorrow an see how my levels look. See how much they changed. Today is CD8 an already been been having FUN.. so will start opk testing this weekend an BD'ng more an when get a Peak on my CBFM call RE office an then go in for IUI..
I'll post what my results is when get them. It maybe a few days before post them but will.
Still been busy but will say had to take my oldest daughter to the ER the other morning due been really sick in stomach. So they changed her antibiotics & found out her doctor was treating her wrong on being sick wise. She don't have a staph infection but a ear infection. For the other stuff it's going OK still teaching potty training for our soon be 2yr.
Our oldest had a competition today and she won 2 ribbons and now she's got another competition coming up next week an if she wins again she'll go state.
Got to run as got stuff to do once again..
Good Luck Ladies an may you get great news soon. I'll try to check it very soon again.
Back from vacation. We were in St. Bart's for a week, no twins and I missed them terribly. First time away from them. I was also super anxious (not about them) and had to wait till I obsessively worried about everything and then I relaxed. We got home late last night. Happy Easter!
