Hi all,

Feeling let down this morning :'( I have been given rough instructions of what my treatment will consist of this time around as with elevated NK cells, I will be on steroids after egg collection!
Until I was told that maybe starting the steroids on day 5 of the cycle would be much better! I now have try to speak to a DR not my asigned nurse about reviewing my treatment but I feel I may not no enough to be then telling a DR what to do!?!

I paid to see someone privatley at my clinic to find out why the last cycles didnt work. The DR suggested the immune tests NOT the nhs, why not?  :'(

Hope your all doing well today  :-*

    Hi Galadriel,
    Nice to 'see' you here! Thanks to everyone for my welcome!

    What kind of pre IVF diets are you on, if any? I'm a healthy eater but want to know if I should be doing anything else to prepare my body. I'm about a stone overweight with a bmi of 27 so I'm trying to lose a few pounds x

    hey ladies,

    how we all doing? my dear this thread is going to be busy busy busy.

    welcome chops, i hope you find this thread helpful as well as reassuring. in regards to pre-ivf diets, i have cut out caffeine, alcohol and generally eating healthily. i don't believe in all this drink a pint of green juice every morning malarkey, lol .

    hey Vicky, I'm sorry you're feeling a bit let down at the moment, but from what you're saying its a good thing that they are starting steroids earlier right?? maybe i read it wrong. but what do you have to speak to a DR about? sorry bit confused about that!! lol.  i hope you get it sorted and can be reassured once again.

    katys - ooh i love a good wedding lol. awwww no dancing? thats horrendous, you have to dance at a wedding lol. i don't know what to suggest about re diverting the mind lol. hope you have fun anyway lol.

    honeymonster - thank u for the message. I'm great thank you, Ive just had a full body hot Stone massage today. it lasted about 75 minutes and i cleared my mind of ALL troubles and just relaxed. it was brilliant. i feel so much more calm and in control now. on my way home i was actually thinking ... so what if they have to inject me on Monday it doesn't matter lol. i know it'll be a different thought n Monday but hey its not worrying me at the moment.

    galadriel - i haven't tried acupuncture but would you reccommend it? does it hurt at all?

    I think minimal caffeine and alcohol and lots of fruit and veg.
    During Stims I was told lots of protein.

    I was a bit nervous about acu to start with but it doesn't hurt at all. I get shivery when the needles are in but that's all. I would make sure you go to someone experienced in fertility.

    Hi peeps – I’ve been quiet the last couple of days, off visiting friends.  Which was a lovely break from the madness of IVF.  We’ve decided to keep it quiet, as I find the well wishing constant questions a bit wearing at times and it is nice to have a break and be ‘normal’   ;D

    Vicky – hope you are feeling a bit more positive today?  Don’t worry about speaking to the doc, they are not always right first time, and sometimes (dare I say it), it can be a best guess.  If they are half decent they will be prepared to listen and discuss your concerns.

    Stacey – thinking of you tomorrow, and sending lots of  ^reiki^ ^reiki^ ^reiki^

    Damelottie – thanks for the list of all the lovely BFP, really motivating x

    KatyaS – how exciting, you are actually doing something.  It must feel real now.  How are you feeling?

    Can you believe it, after waiting two years for a major op for my DH he finally has a date.  Yup you guessed it the week before I am scheduled for EC!  (he will still be in hospital, and when home will need a lot of looking after).  I phoned the clinic on Friday and they said I could postpone to the New Year.  No thanks.  DH is going to have to produce a frozen sample (well, they will freeze it lol) and I will have to use taxis – there is only the two of us.  Going to try and see if we can postpone DH’s op on Monday, fingers crossed  ^pray^

    Big hugs to everyone  ^hugme^ ^hugme^
