Hi Floss, I shall keep everything crossed for you, seems like you are due a change in your luck.  I really hope it will be 3rd time lucky  ^pray^

Kristina, Good luck with your NHS appointment next week.  We are NHS and it all happened very quickly, we met with the consultant just before Christmas and started our first cycle on the 31st January!

Hi Janelouise, Good luck with your scan on Wednesday, I hope your lining is thickening nicely! I'm back in on Thursday to see if mine is.

Hi Summer, Good luck for transfer on Friday, keeping everything crossed for you.  I wish the people who tell us to relax would actually tell us how to, like you said, it's easier said than done.

Hope, Happy belated Birthday.  Good luck with your next scan.  Are you on 6 progynova tablets a day?  I was on 3 and they increased it to 4 after my scan.  Sorry your having headaches with it and I hope they clear up soon, I'm just feeling tired.

Hi Libbylou, congratulations to you, you give us all hope.

Hi Esha, Good luck to you too.

Hi to everyone else  :)

    JAnelousie - I'm on CD4, so have started really, the natural cycle is pretty low impact really, I have been prescribed viagra so started that today - we'll see if it has an effect, I usually don't really have a problem with lining thickness but have only managed the triple line the once & that was the cycle when we had to go to freeze, so hopefully it'll do a good job.

    Summer - it's hard to keep the positivity up sometimes, but we gotta believe that it will work out for us, keep the faith!

    Thanks Esha, but I did the OPKs twice a day from CD 13 - 19 & still didn;t see a surge, it did happen as my bloods from CD 16 (I think) showed it had risen, so will just have to do more bloods - can't wait - looked like a complete junkie last time & can only imagine it'll be worse this time round - if only I was skinny to go with the track marks!!  Is great to hear of successes from natural FETs, I'm in Ireland & am not sure that they are so popular over here, so lovely to hear of it working.

    Thanks for the good wishes KKH - yeah I kinda think we are due to a break at this point.

    Hi to everyone else  :)

    Floss, I went to see an acupuncturist after the BFN, it seemed lots of people on the last thread were so I thought I'd try it.  I'm afraid she took one look at me and said we needed to work on other things first.  My anxiety has altered my breathing, sometimes I find it hard to get a full breath, which in turn makes me anxious!!  The first couple of weeks seemed to work really well but it seems worse again since Thursday - which was also the day of my scan where they told me my lining wasn't as thick as they wanted it to be (probably not a coincidence).  I'm back again to see her on Tuesday, but at 45 an appointment I'm not sure it is something I can/will continue with. 

    Is your appointment tomorrow you first one?  I hope it goes well and good luck for your scan on Friday.

    Evening Ladies,

    Hope everyone is having a nice weekend :D

    Oh Floss I hope they pin point it this time!  Junkie look is the truth! My poor arms are full of holes.  I have to get my local Dr's to take my bloods and then post them next day delivery as I live 3 and a half hours from our clinic.  Lucky my friend is a (not sure the spelling is right) flabotamist so she has been taking my blood this weekend.  Checked with OPK's and got a surge this morning so hopefully down on Wed/Thurs for transfer.  We have 4 x 2 day embies so here's hoping we get 2 to put back in.  My clinic are not very pro natural FET either.  I think its because they find it harder to program into thier diarys as no set dates and they are closed for FETs at the weekend.  Medicated gives them more control over timings etc.  But I pushed for it both times. 

    I tried Acu with one of my FET's, found it very relaxing but was over an hours drive to get there so used a local Reflexologest the next time and it was fab.  Hope you enjoy your appointment tomorrow. x x x

    Hope friday will fly in! What stage are you embies at?  I found HRT really hard going.  And I was only on 4 a day I think. x x x

    KKH hope the acu works for you x x x

    Summer - 3rd time lucky!!  Fingers crossed for you.  We shall prob be testing around the same time.  Good luck for friday. x x

    KKh - no not my first acu appointment - have been going for ages - dread to think about how much I;ve spent on it - having said that I was doing acupuncture on all my natural pg, so I do believe it helps.  I suppose if you can manage to keep going for this cycle & you can look at it again - as to your breathing I know if I told you relax you;'d want to take the head off me, maybe yoga or pilates might help as they concentrate on deep breathing which can be useful to practice for times when you are feeling stressed / panicked. 

    Esha - I tried reflexology once but didn;t particularly like the therapist, but my acu man is Zita West affiliated & lovely - poor man has been through it all with me - it's nearly therapy going to him.

    Hi ladies,

    THhinking of u all at our different stages.

    Summer - lots and lots of luck for friday. I have my first FETwednesday and feeling jittery - it would be nice to fast forward 2 weeks!

    Re: acupuncture i did it for 3 years and think it helped relax me more than anything else. I think the power of the mind is a very powerful thing and if u think acu works then that is the main thing. We stopped for financial reasons - if money wasnt an object we'd carry it on.
     I am pampering myself more this time and finding it helps relax me. Never completely tho as u all know!

    I had a meltdown yest and had a nanosecond where i was going to give it all up. Just feel that this has consumed me for so long . But today is a new day and feel more positive. Its that 'nearly there' nerves i think!

    Having a bit of sun down south has definitely helped!

    Xx

    Hi Hope

    I'm on progynova but not buserelin. I have had discomfort/mild cramping in my ovaries although not constantly. I asked the nurse and she said people have differed side effect but it's not uncommon. I've also just started getting bloated and had CM towards the last week. So I would say what you've been experiencing is normal based on what I have been experiencing.

    Angel79- thank you for your reply. It's put me as ease now 😉
    The cramping seems to have gone but it was just the cm that was concerning me.

    Hope you are ok xxx
