    Sheree, I reckon just do everything and don't stress about it now. Wait until the time comes and if little spot fires pop up just put them out. I'm like you and worry about everthing way before it happens (and this generally means worry for nothing). Just do it all (unless of course you want to cancel this cycle... :-k ) and deal with it then - you will be completely fine and it will all work (*she says as she gazes into her crystal ball*).

    I must admit it has been years since I've actually purchased chocolate biscuits but Toffee Pops were made by Cadbury and are similar to Caramel Crowns but much much better. I used to eat a whole packet after school...and then not eat my veggies for dinner If only my mum told me back then that I'd be on IVF for the rest of my life if I didn't eat my veggies...

    PS I started Synarel today.

    I'm desperate to get to ET this time, after having 2 ETs cancelled after 2 EPUs really suck --- desperate is probably on the tame side!!!

    I AGREE ! sucks biggest time

    Desperate - is tame ](*,) . Geez Sheree -you are amazing .There are no words that can describe the the pain (physical -ok - emotional ???) you went through and the emptiness and despair you may have been feeling after the outcomes of the last 2 EPU.

    I [-o< this is the month for you.You really deserve it - especially considering EDD for your other Bub (EP) is coming up.

    Sheree, as I've told you before, yes you are amazing.
    Though it is amazing how stubborn we get when we want something also.
    Glad you are powering on, I'm sure everything will just fall into place as time goes by.

    Trish, I feel like I'm banging my head on the wall at the moment too.

    DH wants me to have a break next cycle, but I will try to get it put back to December. I should add in 'if not successful'

    What's the largest dose of Progynova anyone's taken? I'm on 3 x 3mg a day. Got shocker headaches & not sure if that's the cause. Probably because when the lady at the chemist gave them to me she said it's a high dose & wanted to make sure it was right. Sort of dented my feelings a bit.

    Take care

    Tam,

    I LOLed when I read about how the chemist dented your feelings. So familiar that feeling of being ever so slightly 'abnormal'. But don't worry Tam, I like that you're not like anyone else! How boring would that be?

    Sheree, I don't blame you for getting sick of EPUs without transfers. I mean, we're not asking for much here, just one or two normal embryos. Out of three cycles, that's really quite reasonable! Will be watching your cycle and crossing everything for an ET this time.

    Hello all you lovely ladies. At work, phones are ringing off the hook, and here I am on the net! At least I know what my priorites are!

    love

    Thanks Sushee

    Hey Tam, sorry about the chemist, I think that you are probably on the highest dose for what you are doing. Just checked my records and I was on 2mg progynova three times a day.

    What does Progynova do ? increase the lining ?

    Progynova is E2, so when used in the follicular phase it is used to produce endometrium lining in the uterus. So for a HRT FET, you are not relying on your ovaries to ovulate you are using the E2 to create the correct uterine environment for ET

    Hi Tam,

    Last cycle I was on 3x3 Progynova too. I'd never made it through the TWW without AF rearing her ugly head (as early as 10 days after tfr) and last time I did so I guess the increased dose worked. Luckily I didn't get any side effects though (touch wood)

    Good luck on this cycle!

    Bee, does that mean you took them the whole way through or in LP.
    I think I'm on the high dose for increasing my lining & last cycle I had low oestrogen in the build up stage (had to have extra injections).
    I've never had problems with my LP, naturally I have a long cycle, I think I O late but LP is still 2 weeks. Whenever I'm on meds it's 4 week cycle. I'm also on the pessaries as well during LP.

    I've had a couple of early nights/good sleeps but headaches are still there, I'll ask the nurse on Tuesday when I go in for a scan & BT.
    I JUST WANT IT TO WORK THIS TIME!!

    Sheree, how are you feeling now it's all go? Are you feeling positive yourself? We'll be hoping big time for you to get to ET.

    Take care

    Tam - those headaches sound bad, you can take panadol for them, have you? good luck with the scan next week.
    My scan is tomorrow only CD5 but because I'm using an antagonist they've got to monitor me closely to ensure I don't O first

    Tam,

    sorry to hear about the headaches. There something so insidious about headaches, in that no one can the pain you're in. I hope they ease for you soon.

    Sheree, looks like you're going to be spending a lot of time at Concept. Hopefully it will all culminate in a clutch of great embies for you to transfer. Good luck with the scan tomorrow, though will they be able to see how many follies are forming at that stage?

    Almost to the weekend, everyone, and not a moment too soon. Sue, am thinking of you, and the difficult road ahead for you. Bee, Sheree, Tam, Trish et all, many for your cycles. Keen, [-o< muchly for your embies and a BFP at the end.

    love
