Hello All -
ejm - At first I also had headaches with Depot and dizzy spells - drank lots of water and they both passed. Then the bloating and gas kicked in and has been coming and going since. Estrogens made it worse too - lots of walking, yoga and prune juice :-) Thanks for the good wishes :-) I imagine if you are delayed for whatever reason they just freeze them till you can get there. Don't worry - all will be well.
BB - it's probably a generational thing - your MIL is from the generation where people made babies by having sex and it happened or it didn't happen. Her heart is in the right place :-) My Mum 78yrs, knows what I'm doing - but doesn't really get it either. Bless them.
Rachel - Have yourself a great, easy, relaxing week and I'll see you in Brno. I definately owe you a glass of red or a herbal tea for all the help and support you've given me as a first timer :-) Will PM you my phone number before I leave on Thurs. This is where I'm staying - http://www.penziondvorakova.cz/
TT - likewise will PM yohttp://www.penziondvorakova.cz/ my number and we can hook up for a coffee. Hope you get away ok and your overnight trip goes ok. I see it's very cold there - wrap up. I read somewhere that DE success was based on 60% Egg Quality, 30% Sperm Quality and 10% uterus quality - good enough for me. Very little work for us to do
MH - OMG how horrendous! 15mins of torture! You poor thing. Hope there is no long term damage. Great that JJ is out there too with you for some company. That restaurant looks good, think I'll check it out too - I'm a fussy veggie who loves her food
JJ - not long for you either. Hope the prep and meds go well.
Lisa - big luck for the 14th
Gina - how long did you eat Brazil nuts for? I'm already on Selenium for a few months but will top up with some BNs!
Searching - any craíc? Scan?
Connie - was thinking of you today! And thinking of my donor and the other 6 young women who are preparing for their EC on Thurs. My own donor, a young 20yr old, is donating for the first time and I'm sure is experiencing a mixture of emotions too. i was very emotional today thinking of all this process and how brave, committed and generous these donors are (in my case donor x 2). I am so grateful there are young women and men out there who are prepared to bring so much hope to women like me! Let's hear it for our donors!!
AFM - apart from my outpouring of love for the world today and feeling incredibly lucky to be able to do what I'm about to do, I'm ready to rock n roll. Leave home 4am Thurs morning. Was watching some injecting videos on youtube and it doesn't seem so daunting now, nevertheless I'm glad it's every 2nd day. I'm in Prague at the weekend if anyone has any recommendations for places to eat - I love my food
