@Hello, thabk you very much. I have a history of fibroids and endo. Had surgery in 2015 to deal with them. However, recently I started having some tummy ish and went for scan and found out the fibroids were beginning to grow. Endometrioma has always been there too cos the surgeon decided not to treat it during surgery because she didn't want to tamper with my ovaries.

IVF doctors felt since I achieved bfps for the last two FETs then something must be stopping the embryo from continuing which is probably hormones. Also oestrogen feeds fibroids and endo, so they decided to supress the hormones by doing down regulation before the usual hormone pumps. Also I kept complaining of using oestrogen because of my history, I didn't want any issue with fibroids again.
I am blessed beyond measures.

Hi All

After first fresh unsuccessful cycle we had a follow up two weeks ago.

Bambi85 - we asked about baby glue and the doc said we can have next time (which will be end of this month :) ). Can you please tell me when you were taking the aspirin? Doc said that there is no prove that will helps but he said it wont make any harm either - so I want to try.


Now I am on Progynova (3 tablets per day) and baseline scan next week. So much easier and quicker without injections, scans and blood tests to which I still not used to.


We decide to not do that crazy like the first time (special cosmetics, no walking, no work.... ). I think it was too much and caused an additional stress. I am not saying this wasn't good but now I feel differently. just started new job 7 weeks ago which may help me to think about something else that if I am or I am not pregnant.

Im so so happy for you Kums17 xxx

Nikita81 - thats great about the embryo glue, just remind the embryologist the morning they ring the day of your transfer.
I started taking 75mg aspirin (I got it out of Tesco in a wee yellow box) at the very beginning when I started the progynova as I figured if it was gonna affect anything it would be the lining and at least this would be identified prior to transfer at my baseline scan but all was well and I my lining was great, I also took vitamin D3 and omega 3 but the one without the cod liver oil in it. I still take the aspirin, vitd3 & omega3 now along with the multivitamin the midwives give contains folic acid etc.


Definitely agree with just keeping life normal, obviously take it easier and not do anything strenuous but what I have learnt is not to put your life on hold for IVF as what will be will be and nothing you do or don't do will affect it (except for meds etc).

All the best and keep us updated xx

Tthanks so much Nikita. Indeed stories like this gives us hope. I wish you well with your current cycle, I'm glad the doctor agreed with your suggestions, it's good to try something different when the usual doesn't work.

@Bambi, thank you very much :cuddle. I hope you are keeping well? Can I ask when you first saw a midwife and did she call you to contact you? We were given a letter to drop at the gp for the midwife but not sure when and how she will contact me.

I hope everyone else is doing well? Have a blessed week all.

I had made an appointment before my 7 week scan as last time I had group b steep and needed antibiotics and was so worried incase I had it.
My local midwives like you to get in touch as soon as you can so they can give you a booking appointment, id ring them now so you can get everything organised and then a date for your dating/nuchal scan. Ring your gp and they should give you a number for your local midwife, the letter is handy for them as they try to work out your edd by your last period when with us ladies that’s not the case.

I’m keeping pretty well, don’t want to tempt fate but my energy levels are on fire right now along with the heartburn lol!! Have you much symptoms? Xx

Thanks Bambi, thanks for the info. I called GP this morning and the receptionist booked me in for an appt in September.

I have tons of symptoms but they are not bad - increased appetite, changed mouth taste (like someone who has fever) but it doesn't stop me from eating, very bloated tummy as if I have a gas filled tummy, bowel movement and sore nipples once in a while.

It's great you have energy, it helps alot, sorry for the heart burn, I had heart burn yesterday and I didn't find it funny at all.

Have a blessed evening.

September seems so far away, did they say it was your booking appointment? Wont you be like 10 week so or so by then?

Thats great they aren't too bad and I think it would worse to have no symptoms than some mild - crap ones!!

Heartburn is the most under rated thing ever!! I never got heartburn before I was pregnant, well maybe if I ate loads and loads of pastry and rubbish but was very mild.
I lie in my bed every night and I swear I am about to start breathing out fire, its get so hot that even the roof of my mouth burns, then it passes and is mild and comes back every 5-10 mins! My norm is to have a couple of ice pops in bed lol or just get to sleep as early as possible! xx

It is far, but the lady said that's the earliest appt the midwife has. She didn't say the kind of appt it will be, It seems they have just one midwife at the gp, I don't understand how it works. I will be past 11 weeks by then.

@heartburn, not good at all. I'm laughing at the way you described the whole thing. The consolation is, it's for a limited time.

Morning all,

It's lovely to login and see all the happy discussions with midwife etc!

Kums17 I would think the midwife would like to see you before as should be getting your booking in appointment bloods, all this needs done for organising your 12 week scan. Go you have a direct number for midwife? No disrespect to reception staff they sometimes don't actually understand the importance of earlier appointments. Hope you don't mind me joining in. I work within the healthcare setting.

I felt a bit cheated I never got heartburn once

Good morning all,

Thank you so much Hello for you advice and joining in, please feel free to join, you are far ahead of me so can help with pointing us in the right direction. I don't have the midewife's number, but can I contact midwife at the maternity? I felt the date was far but I didn't want to sound bad or desperate to the receptionist. Don't feel cheated at all, heart burn isn't good :) .

I hope everyone is doing well? Have a great day ahead.
I am blessed beyond measures.
