Great news Bambi

Well for me.. I’ve started my FET. My period was about 5 and early so that was nice but now I’m set back... went for a scan and lining is only 5.9mm and they want at least 7mm. So now I’m on 4 ya lets a day and rescanning wednesay. Why can’t anything go right the first time!?! I just hope I get my lining where it needs to be by Wednesday. Feel so helpless! I just want this to work so bad... all the setbacks are so frustrating. And so frustrating since in my two fresh rounds I never had a problem with the lining

Thank you hello and abcgirl!

Good luck for OTD! Fingers crossed xx

Abcgirl - I think it’s better to be on 4 progynova a day as i feel it might support the pregnancy better, I had lining issues last FET as did hello and that extra tablet made all the difference so I’m sure it will all work out!
Really recommend to take 2 in the morning and 2 at night as I took all 4 together and I swear I was almost stoned or just not myself in a daze and felt so weird! I feel with 2 tablets 12 hours a part your keeping your body topped up

Good luck keep us updated xx

Thanks for the tip. I had been doing them all at once and feeling okay. Clinic said it didn’t matter but my husband questioned whether I should be spreading them apart. There’s nothing to loose - I was just more worried about forgetting. But now it’s easy enough to take 2 at a time and plus can take it at the same time as the Progrstoerone when that time comes (hopefully)

Hi ABC

Good luck, I was gutted that my lining wasn't thick enough but as the nurse said one more week to ensure it's thicker plus the extra tablet will support the embryo after transfer. I am hoping it's all good signs for us.

I am trying to remain positive but I am really worried coz if it's not a success it's a fresh full cycle and I don't know if I feel strong enough for it.

I am away to bed to chill xxx

Try to remain positive hello!!

A full fresh cycle does feel a lot and every time I have a failed cycle I feel I don't know where I am going to find the strength to get through it again, but we do! Because we are women! We are determined and if we want something nothing will stop us!!!

If you were NHS funded and a cycle worked and you had a baby, do you then have to for pay your transfers of the remaining frozen embryo's?

Hi bambi85:

Yes once you have a baby you are private our first frozen cycle worked out about £1200 and second £990 I think would have been cheaper but I paid for scratch this time and it's £250 I think for 10 mins I think it's expensive but wanted to give it everything since it's our last frozen embryos.

@Bambi, I have just said thank God again on your behalf. Just as you said may God keep this little one for you, your family, your well wishers and God himself. Wishing you the very best in this journey. Good news at 7 weeks scan.

@Hello, wishing you a bfp on Wednesday, it's very near. I never knew you start paying after you have a baby. So does it mean the three funded cycles are there to mitigate failure? So does it mean you pay for each new cycle (within the 3 funded cycle) after a child birth? So many questions, I know you aren't nhs, so please pardon me.

@abcgirl, wishing you the best. I heard hot water bottle helps but I have not used it for that before, so don't know how true it is. People have also recommended pomegranate and beetroot juice, I used these but linning wasn't as good as first FET but was good enough for FET.

@everyone, hope you are all doing well? Wishing you a great weekend.

Right I see, so if you go for a full fresh cycle you will have to pay for that. Would you stay with Aberdeen or go elsewhere? xx

Thank you Kums17, I really feel like yesterday was a dream. Remaining positive as everything looked as it should xx

Nausea and heartburn started a couple of days ago, got the good old sea bands on.
Start my new job on Monday just hope I can stay looking normal when I feel like this, I don't plan on telling them until after I come back from our holiday in may when then ill be 9-10 weeks, hope I can hide it until then! lol!

Happy weekend everyone xx

They say everyone will get three goes to try for a success but once you get a child any further treatment you need to pay so we could pay privately for FETs until all frozen embryos are used!

I am not sure what we will do hopefully don't need to think about that yet xxx

Morning! What a lovely sunny day!

Three full cycles of IVF is a lot if you do manage to get a few frozen per cycle as well, we have one frozen left then if that failed we would be onto our third cycle which honestly the thought is unbearable!!

17 days until we go to on our wee trip to New York, I'm so excited!

I am needing to rant a little bit.. I am really worried about my sister, she has post natal depression and being in Spain she isn't getting the help she needs and support that she would get here. Her and her husband are at each others throats as she is paranoid he is out to get her as she is fixated about the heating being on and he has his controlling ways, I don't know if he fully understands her condition either as he keeps saying she is just feeling sorry for herself and once she is back to work she won't be bored.. far from it!! Maybe it s a culture thing, I don't know! She is on her own, has had no follow up care after the birth of her daughter no community health etc just her on her own in their remote house, isolated.
I want to get her over here and get her help as I feel they might kill each other and I do believe their marriage I worth saving but she's need to get herself better first.
Any suggestions on making her husband understand a bit better?x

Oh bambi85 you must be worried. Does her husband know she has postnatal depression? Worth getting some info from here and send over there? Would your sister fly over here for a bit and have support from you? And our health services? Has she got friends over there?

I am holding on don't think I can face testing incase it's negative so wanting to leave as long as possible xxx

Im hoping you will get an amazing surprise!

He does know and I have send him links to NHS web pages but I just feel he sees her as feeling sorry for herself and crazy almost as she is going from 1 - 100 in a second! I want her over here but I don't know if she is fit for flying and the long journey, I am trying to persuade her as I feel it really is her only option.

ABCgirl hope your lining is coming on nicely! Good luck for your scan xx

Hi Bambi, I think you could suggest she comes for holiday in the UK and from there, pamper her a bit and get her a good counsellor. If your hubby is able to talk to her hubby you can also use him to help them.

Yes I agree that their marriage is worth saving and the earlier the better.

Another thing you can do in the interim is to regularly keep in touch with her through phone calls, text, and motivational messages.

With respect to flight, maybe you ask her and her hubb to come over and hubby can return while she stays or you go meet her and come back with her to the UK.

If you believe in prayers, please pray for her too. We get amazing results when we pray and believe.

Thanks guys, her husband has arranged a counsellor over there and arranged for the baby to go to a nursery for a few hours, a few days a week to give her a breather too! So hope this helps her x

Hello - thinking of you today, have everything crossed for you xx

Started my new job on Monday, its going really well even with my all day nausea and crazy heartburn! It is unreal! Any tips? I have peptic liquid, gaviscon liquid and the chewy sweets, nothing makes a difference! Im trying not to eat as much during the day and this does help a little but then I suffer big time at night time. xx

I remember once before4 I went to the docs to get bloods done of my own back as I wanted to know if my hug was rising and they said I shouldn't have, but when you have miscarriage after miscarriage you need sometimes to know if its doubling or not! In America they test it early on!

How did you get on? Any results back from doc yet? xx

I no right? Its at our GP anyways so what does it concern them? My GP has always been more than happy to do this and he said they normally confirm a pregnancy with a blood test.

Good luck and keep us informed, are you feeling any different?

I contacted my GP as I honestly have severe heartburn which I think is making me nausea, so I don't think I have 'morning sickness' as such just horrific heartburn 24/7 and god awful like hay fever/sinus symptoms that I only get when I am pregnant, my doctor says it is pregnancy rhinitis, not complaining as such just wish I could get a wee bit of a break or relief from it, he has written me a script for ranitidine to see if that will help balance my stomach. here's hoping!! xx

Hi bambi85

Results came back at 50hcg do getting bloods done on Monday again to check to make sure it's progressing as it should. We aren't getting our hopes up but trying to remain positive as well. My symptoms are coming and going sore boobs, slight nausea but this could be drugs as well xxx

Congratulations Hello and Bambi. I read that hcg levels should always be treated with caution and low numbers often result in healthy pregnancies.
Found out cause of bleeding - a sub chroinic haemorrhage. Things are progressing and hopefully with resolve itself but will take time.
Hope everyone else is well

Congrats Hello

Congratulations to you Hello. Let the positivity continue, some start with low HCG and go on to have very healthy pregnancy and I have read that we shouldn't always go by HCG totally. It was good that you got bloods done, AFC frowns at doing blood, I don't know why. It seems they don't know the mode our bodies are, we are dying to know if everything is okay. Anyway don't let me bore you with talks, please enjoy the moment and keep the positivity.

@Bambi, congrats on your new job once again, I hope you are settling in well? Hoping the heartburn subsides and you can enjoy both pregnancy and new job. Have you had your scan at AFC? With regards to your sister, it's good move what the husband has done, try to keep in touch with her regularly and encourage her when necessary. Let's hope she will come out stronger and triumphant.

@Beattie, that's a great relief to know the cause of the bleeding and that baby is doing well. I wish you a perfect and stress free pregnancy.

@ABCGIRL, how's the lining doing? Have you had transfer? Wishing you the best.

I hope everyone is doing okay and enjoying the sunshine?

Have a great weekend all.

Congratulations Hello and Bambie and again to Beattie!! So many positives recently- I am so happy for you all and hope that everyone else going through IVF get positive outcomes very soon :)

I think that's the same as a haematoma Beattie and everything worked out well for me- hope you are enjoying being pregnant. When is your 12 week scan?

I just had a couple questions for everyone. We still have a blastocyst stored at Aberdeen clinic but I haven't decided if I can go through another FET due to the stress IVF put on me last time :( do you know if we can donate it for someone else's treatment? I'm not even sure if it's great quality- it's from my second round which resulted in 2 miscarriages :( just not sure what to do with it but can't bare the thought of it just being disposed of :( what do you all think we should do?

I also wanted to ask if anyone else has been diagnosed with blocked Fallopian tubes which ended up unblocking? I was diagnosed before we started treatment then had 2 failed rounds then fell pregnant naturally. I got my cycle back 5 weeks postpartum which is strange for BF. I'm now in the situation where I'm experiencing mid cycle bleeding round about the time I would ovulate. I've never had this before and would put it down to dip in estrogen after ovulation if it had happened before. I'm wondering if I can safely say my tubes are unblocked if the small bleed from egg rupturing from ovary is managing to make its way down fallopian? I know this sounds like a very strange question but I can't help but think they must be as I fell pregnant after 4 years trying and I now have this strange monthly bleed. I have made a docs appointment to discuss incase it is anything serious.

Thanks in advance for info and I hope everyone is well xxx
