    I remember when I gave blood once, I had a bruise from mid forearm right up to my armpit, yellow and black, it was a real doozy, so I suppose this is nothing really! I cringe reading stories like that where they cant get the needle in, it hurts just to read! You're right of course Sue, the hormone levels have to be right for this to have the best chance, I just hate my stupid poor responding body!

    Baby Bliss,

    The clinic soon found out that they could only get blood out of one vein on my right arm and that's where they take blood everytime. After 8 cycles and continued blood tests, I've got what looks like a permenant bruise on my arm, and anyone looking at me would think I was previously a junkie! Lol!

    All the lovely TWWers, I can't wait until next week! So exciting!

    love

    #-o Didn't mean to scare you Kelly!! Sorry. Think of this as a minor speed bump - better to run into one early in the journey. The rest of the trip you'll be cruising.
    Tam and Humphrey - CD1 yet?? I think I kicked :af: out of my street yesterday. [-o< Hope it was enough of a boot to get her to your place
    How are you Racheal?

    Hi again all

    Good luck Shez!!

    Blue, apart from the caffiene in chocolate there are other things in there that can make your uterus contract and cause a miscarriage early in pregnancy. not so much later. I would imagine a little square would not hurt but I would not risk too much.
    I do have an article on it somewhere I will try and hunt it down.

    Ladies as for the bruises............ Hirudoid!! its a haemmoroid cream but it is really great for reducing swelling as well as bruising. Good for blood test areas as well as injection sites!! I swear by it.

    I am doing okay today. Just hyperventilating at the thought of friday's blood test!!!

    :-({|= not whinging Shaz. Just sharing with us - that's why we're all here!!!!!
    What did your dr suggest???
    I'm not taking as much post ET support as you so can only imagine how clogged up you must be feeling! I'm only taking Crinone and having constipation problems.
    I know how frustrating the water thing is. I drink 2L normally. Have been trying to drink more atm but it's bloody impossible.
    Rest up and try to take it easy?

    Shazz- I take cardiprin for ACA/ANA +ve which stops the blood clotting tendency (therefore reduce risk of M/C). So if you are OHSS have they reduced your luteal phase support and will this effect implantation?

    PS what CDs do you use the cardipin on, ie every day from CD1 or everyday from ET?

    Shazz - poor thing -
    1 pregnyl shot as the trigger injection then on days 3 6 and 9 i had luteal support boosters of pregnyl injections as well as progynova tab 1 xdaily provera 3x daily crinone morning pessaries at night and cardiprin and folic acid
    that is a mother load of meds -no wonder -

    Fresh cycle -I didn't have Pregnyl on fresh cycle except for trigger and I after embie transfer , I had crinone gel (in the sticks :roll: ) morning & night and Elevit (for folic acid)

    what does progynova daily DO ?
    provera x 3 daily DO ?

    are you having progesterone pessaries at night ? and crinone morning ? as well or both

    if you have OHSS - like Sheree said what are they doing for you have you seen or spoken to your clinic ?

    If progynova is used in the follicular stage of the cycle then it needs to be continued into the Luteal and then during 1st trimester of PG.-I think
