Can I ask who the doctor is that took over from Dr Baird at crosshouse and what is he/she like?  My gp wrote for an appointment the start of January, still not heard anything.

Hiya girls, I was just thinking i went onto hospital, came out and you'd all done a bunk ;D

Sorry its taken a wee while to get on here, I went in for elective section on 8th Feb. Once they were in there was a problem as my bladder was stuck to my womb and stomach! They had to call for a specialist surgeon who was excellent and Taylor was born at 1524 closely followed by Findlay at 1527. They both came out screaming and healthy and could stay with me after they were dried and weighed.
I got discharged sat lunchtime only to have a massive bleed in the middle of the night and blue light ambulance back to hospital :( The bleeding soon settled and I came home again on monday.

All that aside I am doing quite well and although i'm tired and sore I am loving being a twin mummy. I can't believe my boys are here and spend most of my time just looking at them :)

I hope we find the thread again so I can catch up on all your news and see the messages debbie says have been left for me.

will try to come on again soon

I had posted on the other thread but I think its temporary so I just copied it onto here.

Hope you all find this one.

Ruby - I'm not sure who replaced Dr Baird, it can take a wee while to hear from them to begin with but you could always phone appointments at crosshouse and enquire if you have been appointed. Hope everything goes well for you.

Just a little update, went to see doctor yesterday about trying something diffrent next Fet  after 4 failed attempt to me there's something wrong,so she has adviced us to take clexaine and a high dose of steroids to kill any blood cells that maybe killing our embies - so here's hoping  ^reiki^ have decided to defrost 6 and take them to blast so hope they will be little fighters and get there OK ^pray^
How are you doing silver lining?

Hi Wanabmum - I went for my follow up monday after 3 failed icsi and he has recommended the same, steroids etc. They use them to supress the part of the brain/body that wants to expel any foreign matter eg your partners sperm in the embryo. They say "  Its ok let them stay and implant"!!!!!!!!

He is very confident it will happen for us on this go??!!!! We managed to get to OTD so its hopefully a case of IMPLANT IMPLANT. ;D

Each step of the way they find something, its expensive trial and error.

We will hopefully  ^excercise3^  in the early summer. I think it will be our last go with my eggs but it WILL work. ^pray^

Lots of  ^fairydust^

Thats good he maybe just wanted to play it cool, as if it was no big deal! Injections really are nothing to worry about only really sore once you have been doing it a while and you start to bruise.x

hey girls, I think there are some of us who haven't managed to find this new thread as its very quiet.

I really hope the clexane and steroids work for you Wanabmum and bluebell - the clexane seemed to do the trick for me, don't know anything about steroids though. WHen are you due to start again?

Not long now for you dragonlady - do you have a date to start?

Ruby - did you get through to crosshouse?

Well thats my boys 3 weeks old and i still can't believe they are mine :) . They are doing really well and starting to put on weight. Looking forward to the weekend and spending some time with dh - have really missed him being back at work.

hope to hear everyones updates soon x

well we did have a good idea but dh has cancelled appointment tomorrow to have bloods done as it is going to cost us £30 to get there and now we have to wait on a new appointment for a day in the week so we can use patient transport.  im so frustrated with all this waiting and appointments being changed i just want to get on with it.

How did it go wanabmum - did you get 2 blasts? When is OTD? I really have my fingers and toes crossed for you, it was 5th time lucky for me, i  ^pray^  it is for you too x

Stressful morning for me, both boys wakened and crying for bottles at the same time - need to work out the best way of doing this, they're still too wee to feed them in the bouncy chairs so have to do one at a time. Feel so guilty when i 'm feeding one and the other is crying  :-[

going to grab a cuppa whilst they sleep x

Got a call on Sat to say come in for a transfer - they said 3 looked good and 2 were ok but had to have 5 still going to be allowed to try for blast so got 1 5 cell A/B and 1 6 cell A/B. Otd is the 20th , Had a wee bit of goodish news had to phone today(day 6) to see how the other got on although i have nothing to re freeze the 3rd as she put it  went to some sort of blast! Said inside cells weren't substantial enough but my pupo 2 were better quality so feeling good that they may well have made it this far, plus all these drugs can only help  ^pray^ . Went to get my cards done last night by Sheila curry totally spot on with so much she said and I've not to worry and stop stressing lol, she said there would be a birth in December and could see twin boy's - ^babyface^ even though i've taken it with a pinch of salt it's made me feel so much better.

That's fab news its good to know the one left continued to develop as the other 2 you got put back should get on better as they are where they should be -does that make sense started to waffle there! Hope the wait doesn't go too slowly for you. Are you still at nuffield?

Good afternoon folks,

apologies i have not been on here much but took a wee break from everything to try and relax and get my head sorted. Hope everyone is well and that treatment and pregnancies are all going well for everyone!

Jut thought i would pop on and update you on my latest update - i am being admitted to hospital on 31 march for a bilateral salpingetomy so hopefully after that procedure it should help with my next round of treatment. a little bit scared about it but hey just need to grin and bare it!

Hope all are well and here are some positive vibes for u all xxx    ^reiki^  ^reiki^
