First lot of meds started on Jan 20th, started second lot tonight. Dealing ok with it so far. Althought Suprecur has given me hot flushes and night sweats (fun). Started menopur tonight. Had a blood test this morning. Starting going back from next weds to have bloods and scans. They expect about 12 days from now they'll be doing the egg collection. Aleja did you have ant time off at egg retrieval or after the embryo's were transferred?
It's been so long. I am glad everyone is well!
MrsG I have to say that I am pretty good myself too! I have focused on lots of exercise and my craft projects. DH is feeling better, too. He has taken up exercise himself and we both follow a very healthy diet. This is the way to go!
Good luck cupcake!
xx to all!
Hi lovely girls I am happy to hear that you are relax mode. It's nice to have a life away from the madness.
MrsP you are almost at the finish line...! When is your due date?
I know what you mean about my long ago bfp... I swear the first trimester has dragged on so much for me and its still not over!!!!
Cupcake that is great you are onto the stims now. Yes the flushes are not fun at all. I also had head aches and my ovaries started feeling very large as it got closer to egg collection . I took about 3 days off for EC but then had an extra day off as I got mild hyperstimulation. I was very bloated and uncomfortable . I recommend taking a couple of days off if you can. For the transfer it is really quick. My FS didn't recommend the whole lying down after transfer so I could have gone straight to work... Luckily my transfer happened on a Saturday of a long weekend so I took it easy
I am keeping my fingers crossed for you- all the monitoring and waiting for news can be stressful but will be well worth it when it works!!
Good luck Cupcake! Menopur stings!! Make sure you ice the spot well, that helps I decided to take a whole week off for EC & ET. My boss knew what was going on and he was very supportive, put it down as sick leave. I ended up having a 3 day transfer so I didn't really need the full week in the end but I'm still glad I took it - it's important to have some time to yourself to relax in the midst of ivf craziness! Definitely make sure you book a day or two off after EC and have your hot water bottle ready! Are you going to do acu on the day of ET? Good luck, keeping everything crossed for you!!
You're nearly put of 1st tri Aleja, not long! I think I was getting yours & broody's BFP's mixed up, it just seems so long since a BFP, but then the thread hasn't really been that active lately it seems a long while since I posted.. it gets me annoyed that everyone else (including my friends on other threads) are still waiting for their BFP's very unfair!
My EDD is 13/3/13 I finish work 3 weeks today & can't wait!
Mrs P you are due on the same day as my work friend :-)
Have you got the nursery set up already?
Yes I am keen to see more bfps on this thread. We have really stuck together for a long time and we all deserve the happy ending
It's good to have you back. I am feeling ok still bloated and nervous. Now waiting for 16 week OB appt when I get to see our bubba again.
