Thanks MK. Everyone knows since the 12 week scan (when I was actually 13 weeks.) A couple of people said to me at work today, you'd never know you were pregnant, I was huge at 16 weeks! I'm like, gee thanks, makes me feel a whole lot better, I just grin and bear it

I think the injectables and the progesterone sound like a good idea MK

Mk - injectables with iui sound like a good idea. I've been on progesterone pessaries since my egg retrieval - it's pretty much standard for ivf, suppose it just gives your own levels a boost to help you along. I'm not sure what the dose is - will check when I get home. I find them simple to use but they are a bit messy! I was using panty liners but I found them irritating and last week I felt like I was getting thrush so I've stopped using them now and I feel much better...
We've told our immediate families and some close friends. I would tell more friends but DH wants to wait til after the 6 week scan next week. I don't know how people manage to tell no one at all until 12 weeks - I'm about to burst!! DH was out walking the dogs when I tested so when he came home I just shouted for him to come upstairs and then handed him the test - no clever announcement I'm afraid!!!!

Brassy - my acupuncturist had me working on warming my uterus also - I spent the whole of my ivf treatment with a hot water bottle glued to me!!! It's not hot here though and I'm nearly always cold so I didn't mind!!!

MrsG - yay for iui soon!!!!

Thanks for responding ladies. Hot water bottle eh? Interesting! I've stopped eating salads as that's a no no supposedly. It's cold now in the uk so I don't mind.

MK - If I remember correctly, I'll go in next week 10/9, day 14, for an ultrasound and blood work. Then I'll get the IUI's the next 2 days if all is well. Then a week after that - day 21 - I'll get more bloodwork. And then I wait..............

Thanks for the info. . What tests diagnosed the lp defect? What progesterone dose were you on. I recall the treatment plan suggested by my fs is 200mg pessaries in the morning and the same again at night.

I hope all of us get our bfps this year, I really do.
It was based off my old BBT charts. Before my MC - My LP was consistently 13days. After the MC - it went down to 11 and stayed there for a few months before I brought it up to my OBGYN. Also, my 7dpo P4 tests were on the low end. They even were low when I took 50mg of Clomid - they were only like 13. So they upped my dose to 100mg of Clomid and they were much more normal (in the 20's) for a medicated cycle. I know they can do a test called an Endometrial Biopsy to diagnose you as well with LPD - I did not have it done.

I have been doing 200mg of Prometrium (Progesterone) suppositories each night before bed but since the PG my P4 levels have been dropping each week so they upped me to 200mg around lunch time and then another dose of 200mg before bed...
