FET January/February..... Ho ho ho/Happy New Year!
« Reply #120 on: 24/01/20, 19:14 »
Hi Gang

No period.... yet.... Iím still hanging in there.  Crazy dizziness suddenly lifted at 12.10.... so suddenly I just felt ok. Very odd.

Suzie, contractions sound pretty unpleasant... glad people had success stories.

Micg15 I donít know, Iíve never tested early before but Iím so so so tempted
I think 14 hour work days plus looking after a little one would exhaust anyone before you add in the crazy ivf drugs and stress.
Hope the shopping expedition cheers you up a bit!

Bet you looked great in your Disney nightie Suzie.

I had to wear a backless hospital gown... was desperately trying to pull it around me as I walked down the corridor so as not to expose my bum to all the nurses!

Also I utterly forgot to shave my legs, didnít even cross my mind, so a full winter Forest was on show... so embarrassing when the nurse had to strap my legs in to that horrible contraption!!!

Love to you all.
Anyone doing anything nice this weekend to treat themselves and take their minds off the process?
Xxxxx

    Daisy you crack me up, Iím sure it wasnít quite winter forest but what a description 🤣🤣🤣 Pleased your dizziness has gone, what a time youíre having!!

    I donít know if it was vaginal or uterine movements I had as it was in my sleep but the success stories helped ease me.

    Tbf for the nightie I was lucky that it was the wrong size (probs why unflattering) so whilst I didnít have it for the transfer we might have to change it so I can wear it in the house for my daughter (although not sure that would change how flattering it might be 😊🙈😅). Hats off to you for rocking the gown. I ended up in normal pjs and just took the bottoms off when ready 😊

    Weíve my daughters social life of parties and classes this weekend so nothing adulty exciting, hope to rest more Tbf and sort things in house.

    Hope you (and others) have nice distractions planned and get to rest too x x

    :-)
    How old is your daughter Suzie?

    Anyone know how to start a new thread- or even if thatís actually allowed in this crazy site.

    I want to ask peopleís experiences about vaginal/uterine prolapse.  In short, I got this a few weeks after giving birth and despite seeing gynae and specialist physio itís never really improved, so literally havenít been able to do any exercise since my son and only v limited slow walking- or it all falls out (sorry people!!!). In last week itís got worse than ever.  Dunno if itís due to prolapse, poss pregnancy or due to them poking around In there to do the transfer.  Iím getting scared what could happen with it if I am pregnant as how it could affect pregnancy.  Both my gynae and physio did say it was ok to try to get pregnant again .

    Anyway itís very off our topic, just wanted to know if any of you know where or how to post it.

    Thanks xx

    Daisythesnail - Sorry I canít help with help with the prolapse stuff but hope someone can give advice. Hope the dizziness is settling too. Sounds like an awful time with being ill. Can just imagine the winter forest situation! Not long until your test now. Thanks for the advice and reassurance x

    Suzie84 Ė I think I would have been chuffed with the Disney Nighty whatever the size! Iím finding nothing about this process flattering though. Iím not far behind your OTD. Have you got any boxset recommendations?

    Micg15 Ė Thanks for the kind words. No wonder youíre shattered with such long work days on top of home life! Completely relate to your nerves about the 2ww.
     
    HopingToBeAMammyNo2 Ė Glad youíre period arrived so you can move on if not at the best of times. Hope your return to work goes ok but look after yourself. I had a good bit off time off after my miscarriage last year too. I work for NHS but not in such a frontline service as A&E.

    Pritamin Ė Welcome. Hope the down-regulation is going ok.

    Rfairygodmother Ė Welcome to the group. We took a holiday during our last 2ww which helped to pass the time. Hope youíre having a lovely time.
    brooky Ė Glad your clinic could accommodate your late period. I also feel more worried about coping because of my miscarriage too. Thanks for your kind words x

    Hope the rest of you are doing ok x

    AFM Ė Not much to say really. Very slow day pottering around at home following transfer and long journey home yesterday. Got a couple of little things planned for the next few days to help pass the time. Back in work next week but just two days then got more leave booked. Iíll be busy at work so will keep my mind off things but worried about managing to take things slowly there. Trying to just focus on one day at a time.

    Daisy Iím afraid I donít know how to set up another thread but think there might be some help/guidance somewhere. Sorry to hear what youíre going through on top of this too. Fingers crossed you get some reassurance soon and some useful advice on it.

    Hopeful - sounds like youíve a good approach for taking it easy. Iím guessing work donít know if youíre worried about taking it slow there. Not knowing what you do, if they donít know what youíre doing can you make up an excuse about pulling your back or shoulder or something so youíre not as hands on? Or if office work, take things more at a slower pace?

    For box sets.... where to start 😃 Dexter, Prison Break, Breaking Bad, Downton Abbey, The Crown, When They See Us and Big Little Lies..... also been told You and After Life are must seeís. Iím sure thereís loads more Iíve seen but these stand out.

    Happy weekend to everyone x x

    Happy Sunday all!

    Daisy / Suzie / Hopeful - when are your otds? I'm sure you've said it already but my memory is not the best :)

    Nothing much to report for me. I have family visiting for the next 9 days and have a downreg scan tomorrow at the clinic. I keep forgetting to do the shots on time but I think i had the same on my previous successful FET.
    I hope i can reduce the dose from twice a day as I'm steadily putting on weight which is kind of annoying after Christmas :)

    have a lovely rest of the weekend everyone xx

    Hi all

    Protamin- am finding the same thing with downregg I am honestly eating for fun and hate it constantly craving any food or shud I say all fatty foods but hopefully all worth while and continue piling on the pounds with healthy babbas at the end

    Afm am on day 15 of downregg clinic called and says to start taking the estradiol tomorrow along with my downregg injections and go in for a scan on 5th and then transfer on the 10th seems strange as from starting downregg over 2 weeks ago I havenít had any check up with them and straight onto the estradiol tomorrow til 5days before transfer wen I will have a scan anyone else had this?

    Hopingtobe- it does sound a bit odd to start you on estradiol without a scan to see if youíve downregged enough but youíll have a scan 5 days before transfer which is more important as theyíll check if youíre lining is thick enough for a transfer. I am sure they know what theyíre doing xx
    Which clinic are you with?

    Hi ladies

    Nice to be part of busy thread. Sorry if iv missed any questions, I'm going yo keep up looking on daily now as my memory has gone terrible!

    Hoping to be a mummy - my clinic doesn't even do down reg (which I think is y my fets haven't been successful), I also didn't have a scan b4 estradiol just few days b4 transfer.


    Hope everyone is OK. Who is due to test next? I need to buy a test soon for 2nd tho I might test b4 I go on holiday which is 1st so might test 31st Jan.

    Hey Gang,
    Hopeful- I hope you do manage to take it more slowly on your two days at work.

    Suzie- loving your box set advice!

    Pritamin- do you find family visiting for 9 days fun or stressful?  How was your downreg scan?

    Kelly- I can totally empathise with eating for fun!  Exciting that youíve got a transfer date.

    Fairy Godmother, where are you going on holiday?  Exciting buying tests- I ordered mine from Amazon as didnít want to be spotted buying them locally!!

    So Iím next ... my official test date is tomorrow.
    But.... big confession.... Iíve tested early (never done this before.... I think those of you asking if Iím going to rest early have been a bad influence.)

    Itís positive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    IíM PREGNANT!!!!!!!!
