CQCQ if your job isn't stressful or physically heavy work you could prob work through but will have to take off the ET and EC, to be honest I am glad i took off from injections because they knocked me for 6 and I was able to just relax and concentrate on myself not worry about work, I actually won't be going back till I get the ok from my scan because my job is very stressful and heavy and I am so scared to do damage to the baby, I had alot of holidays days so was lucky I had 4 weeks off paid and now it's 3 weeks sick pa but il be back after scan and counting months till maternity lol

I just dnt know when to go off as I dnt want to be off for to long either!! I’m sure you will be lol so do u know yet when your scan is? Do you just go to GP as normal to say your pregnant or what?

Naw the RFC bring you in for a scan and if all is ok at it they basically sign you off and then I make a midwife appointment just like a normal pregnancy then, id take off from the injections missus sure it will only be 4 weeks you will be off sometimes things in life are more important than work, and you really don't want no regrets, I was at my normal doctors the other day and sne9 actually told me it was to early to go back to work because I work in nursing home and she said it wouldn't be worth risking it x

The pregnancy be's calculated from 2 weeks before EC as that is when the egg was fertilized, a normal pregnany is dated from the date of lasg period so they add 2 weeks on to it as that would be an idea of when a normal period would of been in a normal conception of that makes sense, so when you test you will be classified as over 4 weeks pregnant lol it's confusing x

Hi girls, had my PTC yesterday, starting to feel very real now! I’m quite interested to see what drugs everyone was/is on? I don’t have a concrete schedule atm, have to wait until I start my next cycle but my mock schedule is looking like I’ll be on synarel for just over 2 weeks and then Bemfola for 11 days. Hopefully starting end of this month, feeling really excited now!

haha i was just thinking that when i was putting my meds into fridge..i put sme into bags and into bottom drawer to disguise them.. what are we like no one would even have the first clue what they are for lol.
yes i asked nurse today about period she said there is a chance of a small bleed around time of period so dont worry if that happens but yes im sure the hormones will be all over the place by then.
yes at the min im working as normal, im self employed so i could take off when i need too but i cant really take loads of time off if u know what i mean.
im glad we are kind of around the same stage. its a lovely sunny day here its making me feel all positive.
im off fridays so it has been working in well with appointments so far xxx

Since last Wednesday. Apart from the odd twinge I've had nothing. Starting to wonder should I feel something more. I'm on 300 so thought that was a high enough dose. Although I'll be happy enough if I've no side effects. We'll see on weds :)

I am feeling good girls, and better than I was. At the end of last week I felt so bloated. The consultant told me that's normal. Our ovaries are usually the size of a walnut and mine at the moment are the size of a fist! I also felt very fatigued last week but much better now. Have to trigger tonight so it's all getting exciting!

Fifs hope your scan goes well on Wednesday, keep us posted. 300 is a high dose so you will see some progress I'm sure. xx

Hi Ladies

Starting medication at the beginning of april. Looking forward to getting started.

what sort of symptoms did you experience on the nasal sprays? Not sure what to expect!

Also- has anyone got low amh levels? I'll be starting the on 300 of the bemfola injections as my level is a bit low. just wondered if anyone else was in the same boat.

Cant believe it's all starting.

Fingers crossed for everyone.

How'd you get on tansy? I had first scan this morn, all on track. I'm pleased cos I was worried I wasn't feeling any different!! Think about 7 follicles one side and maybe 4 the other.

Marie, I'm on 300 too,, but not sure why. The only side effect I had from the spray was being really warm at night. Touch wood that was it! I'm sure you can't wait to get started!
