hi all,

I just had my day 10 scan done today. There were 2 nice follicles, one was 12, another one was 14, but the lining was only 6mm thick. pretty nurse says lining has to be minimum 8mm thick.

Please, what should I do to increase lining thickness. Please advise!  ??? ???

get a hot water bottle on your belly for defo, also i think milk? might help... not sure but it won't hurt though.

Hope it thickens up for you hun  ^hugme^

I got my wheatbag off the internet.  Try your local Pharmacist as they might stock them.

I also drank gallons of milk and that seemed to help.

All the best

ask your clinic about giving you viagra 25 mgs four times a day- usually clinic remedy, I have had this on my last 3 cycles. aspirin and clexane have also been prescribed

Hi Kitty
Just wondered how you got on - you are the same as me aren't you - off to Leicester for donor sperm (but from Hull/Beverley)? Do you have your scans done in Leicester? It is a nightmare to travel all that way isn't it? I have managed to have scans done in Hull so far.
Interested to hear what your lining was - do they scan you before treatment then? I only had that once due to weekend timing. Hope it went OK - did you have the 2 insems?

hi,  it went well.  My lining had increased to 10.9        follicle 18

I had the scan first then came back an hour later for the DIUI,  we went and got some lunch.

The nurse asked if we were going back tomorrow for another go.  but when we saw Mr Girish he said they dont do 2 anymore as nothing has been proven that it gives a better chance ^idiot^

So I dont know whether we're going back tomorrow or not,  nurse said to ring in the morning.
Ps I was a bit of a wimp :-[ it was uncomfortable  like a really bad af.

Youre right about the nightmare journey  we can do it in 2 hours now and then few mins to get into hospital.

Didnt know you could get scans done in Hull???  are they at the private clinic  and did you arrange or did Leicester?    that would save a lot of time.

Hi
Glad the results were good and it went well. They did 2 for me last time and Mr Davidson said on Saturday that they still do - always feels more positive as surely more little spermies have gone in? Strange. 

I usually find it quite uncomfortable to be honest - not the nicest procedure is it?
Prof Killick kindly does my scans and we pay him privately - he had been really kind to us and was really frustrated he couldn't help us here in Hull - I asked him as a favour to be honest and he said he would -  he does them himself. 

We have always stayed down - it costs more but then when you add up the 4 journeys as opposed to 2 not that much - also has reduced the stress - means I need 2 days off work every time though and being a teacher it is really hard at short notice.
When is test day?  Dreaded 2ww again then? Fingers crossed for you.
