Tracy - hmmm I remember your betas were quite high
but we will wait to see for sure.... Man your ultrasound is killing my patience lol!!! I need to know 😜 how are you for symptoms? Anything much?
Re the gratitude, yesterday it hit me again that my dh has finished all his studies and although we are waiting for business to increase we have made it through the hard bits (he finished 18 months ago lol) it was an amazing feeling. I met him in 2000 he was already a dentist and was halfway through post grad medicine, after that he had an entry exam to get on the surgery training, a first year exam, five years of training and a closing exam (each exam was national and a weeks worth of testing) now our lives are ours and the fact he's not working full time is great - we have time to enjoy living, and just enough cash to get there - who needs more really?
Adie - my ovaries don't ache so much as I'm just aware of them and the fact they're swollen lol! Btw the best thing for me after each ivf cycle, by the time I recover and mostly deflate (like now) I've lost a little weight
that's a happy little bonus!
Radio wave - welcome! Re the medicated iui, I have no problems ovulating on my own either, but they do like for there to be a couple of extra eggs produced for an iui normally - the idea is that it will increase your chances. However if you are more concerned about multiples (and extra stress on your cervix despite the tac) point that out to the doc. Essentially we have all found in varying degrees that we are able to try things more our way if we feel strong about stuff and what we want to try is not crazy or off path, so just make sure your doc understands how you feel. It may mean you have a lower success rate - but it's your money and your sanity. Re the iui hormones - they aren't that bad and typically it's just a 5 day stint - if you need to do it you will cope fine
Good luck and keep us posted!
Xerxella - a little worried that we haven't heard from you, could you let us know how you are?
Alive - how's things?
Oxford - sweety how are you doing? How have you settled down after it all?
Mo - lol I think of you and just feel mellow and happy, I hope that's where you're at gorgeous!
Afm - still riding that happy buzz of being grateful, I can't recommend it more xxx
