Hi

This is my first ivf and i started D/R saturday just gone. Im D/R for a long time due to my clinic not being able to fit me in for EC in march, so have moved it to april.
Wondering if there is anyone else who has their baseline on or around the 24th march to share experience's.

DHC - Hi hun. Hope all is going well, you must of started yesterday, are you injecting or sniffing? good luck  ^reiki^

Footsie - How are you feeling? Are you injecting or sniffing? Nice to have a cycle buddie too. Its nice to not feel so alone is this journey. Where are you having TX?

AFM - Im injecting and im on day 9 of DR. Started AF 2 days ago, its been a bit heavier than normal but no more painfull for me. The only side effect ive really been having is that i keep forgetting to do things or cant remember if i have done things. Example: went to run a bath, put the tap on walked away came back 5 mins later and forgot to put the plug in  ^idiot^  silly things like that!

Michelle, it's next Saturday I start sniffing, got to do that for 3 weeks then hopefully can start stimming. I get a bit forgetful as well when I'm d/r, this will be my 3rd attempt and each time it the side effects have been different.

Thanks Footsie.

To be honest I found most of the side effects bearable with d/regging, it was the stimming that made me feel rough.

Good luck to you both xx

DHC - I am getting hot sometimes, but at the mo im on AF and i get like that during that time anyway. So just have to wait till AF finishes and see how i feel then.

Footsie - Im at Bourn hall colchester. Even tho all friends and family know that i have to have IVF, none of them know that im having it right now. I just dont know how i am going to feel going through this the first time, so didnt really want all the question from everyone, as they would phone every 5 mins to see how im getting on. Its good to talk to poeple who have been or are going though it tho as you all understand.

I would always get the headaches just after doing the nasal spray and they would last for a few hours. Drinking water and having a paracetamol should help to ease them.

Well 4 more days until I start sniffing, I think that's when it will all hit me again, the reality of going through another tx.

Footsie - I know what you mean about wishing the days away. I dont know if having a ticker in my sig helpfull or not, i look at it everyday and get excited that another day has gone but then think anout how many days are left  ^idiot^ 
Can i ask, if you dont mind, why you are DR for so long? xxx

I love your ticker as it shows exactly how many weeks and days to go.

I have no idea why am DR for this long. The clinic just gave me the dates for bloods/scan and I didn't question them why because I was just relieved to get started at long last! My guess is that they didn't have anymore spots for EC at end of March. I was quite unhappy about it at first but now am quite glad because it will be more convenient to take time off work for EC/ET. I have also read (on another forum) that DR for long sometimes is better for some women and the chances of a BFP are higher! hope its true for us

Enjoy your evening

Ohh i hope thats true about DR for longer!
Same reason im DR for such a long time, and also more convenient for me too as i work in school and easter half term is right around EC/ET.

Hi everyone and hello Michelle again  :)

I am DR at the moment on day 2 and so far, no side effects. I am also taking Norethisterone and about an hour after i take it, i feel sick for a bit and have had a thick head all week.

I am also doing DR for 3 weeks (+2days) as baseline scan on the 23rd - again cos my clinic is chocca. I have the 2nd and 3rd week off in April coincidentally so hopefully that will be most of my 2ww, although being at work would have probably made the time past quicker!

Nice to see there are a few of us going through tx at the same time xxx
