    Hay - Thanks for the info re: the progesterone. I am on the Crinone 2 x daily. I now have enough to last me up to the BT. Should you wean yourself off them? (might sound a pretty dumb question!)

    Ali - Like you I have really really sore BBs.... hope for both of us it is not a side effect of the Crinone. I honestly think that 7dpo IS way to early despite what the tests say - I think you'll just have to wait and test again - no earlier than 10dpo I think (minimum).

    Humphrey - totally understand the desire to jab! It means your on your way again! Good luck tomorrow. FINGERS CROSSED for your little Snowbubs too!

    Blue - Way to go getting right back on the proverbial horse honey! Good luck with the progynova. Have updated your details (lucky for you there were sprinkles!!).



    Sush - Honey you are on the home stretch now! My extra sticky vibes and stuff has worked so far - both Shell & Mel! Hoping that continues!

    Ive had cramps and twinges and OHHH the sorest bbs in the world... and have not succmbed to any POAS (well der only had transfer 4 days ago! - but still...). Desperately hoping to be successful with DH getting more and more excited as the days go on - would especially hate to disappoint him. Want to be able to do this for him SO badly.

    And for me too - of course.

    Ali, i read that only 5% of women get BFP's at 7DPO. Some women don't detect until after AF, it all depends, especially depends on how long until implantation took place. It's still early days yet & as you've seen, some LT TTC'ers haven't had a BFP on a pee stick at all before BT, but are pg. Symptoms sound like a good sign to me, I was getting some symptoms from 7DPO & my first official BFP was late on 10DPO. Everyone's symptoms are different too, but sore BB's sounds like a good sign to me.

    Keen, wow cool, u've got symptoms too, awesome. So u being 4 DPT, does that mean 9 DPO (4 days past transfer + 5 day blasts)?

    Awesome, more BFP's comin for sure.

    Sushee, not long for u now.

    Shell - Um yeah I think thats right 4 dpt + 5 day blast is technically 9dpo. I think actually if you work it out Ali, Sush, you and I would all be due around the same week...

    Im EXCITED! At least one of the three of us has to leave....

    Hi every one hope every one has had a great day ..

    just an update !!

    i took myself off to a herbalist/accupunturist / chinese medicine people today ( i have been to them before about my ****y knee and after i MC last year) basically we talked about my cycles and whether what we did last time had any benefit regarding Ivf this time round thankfully i have charted my cycles since i did IVF last sept so nearly 12 months of charting proved that things are heading on to the up side of norm !!!! they said theat accupunture at this stage would be of no benefit and treated me for stress and did accupunture on my knee and ankle instead then the hearblist put me on mineral salts 3 times a day and i have to go back next week very interesting and i feel so much better about everything

    Hi Ladies,

    Keen - I'm getting excited for you ... it all sounds good!

    Shazz - Glad to hear the session at the herbalist went well. It always feels good to be doing something I think. Anything you can do to take back some mastery over the situation always helps your feelings.

    Janee - You will feel so much better after seeing the specialist because you're on the way to working out what's going on. I felt immediately much better psychologically. I was so relieved that finally something was being done and I didn't have to keep having intercourse at a certain time of the month and hoping for the best. I hope it all works out for you.

    Humphrey - Good luck with this FET! Hope the frosty is a robust little specimen and sticks like glue!

    Hope everyone else is well. Not much happening here. Jeff is looking at old Pusster footage out in the living room so I've taken refuge on BB.

    Talk to you all tomorrow or over the weekend.

    Mel

    Keen, regarding weaning yourself off progesterone....

    whne I was using the Crinone, none of my pregnancies worked (nothing to do with the Crinone tho), so I stopped cold turkey when AF arrived or I had to have a D&C (actually just before the D&C when we found out the pregnancies stopped). But for last pregnancy (Thomas) I was on the pessaries until about my 14th week. I did stop cold turkey, but only after I had HEAPS of reassurance from Nick L that supplementary progesterone later in pregnancy doesn't do anything much as the placenta is making quite enough of it on its own.

    So I guess that as far as weaning yourself off, then no, you don't have to do that, as hopefully the placenta will take over. It seems to be very important for some women - some included in here no doubt and myself included - to have extra progesterone early on in a pg, and that includes when you are not sure that you are pg (after transfer for instance, or following a +ve blood test very early on). I would then stick to the dose you have been prescribed and be religious about it!!!

    Just a comment about Crinone vs pessaries, I'm not sure that one is better than the other in terms of effectiveness, but the pros of the Crinone is that it doesn't leak out but the cons are that it is hideously expensive if you have to buy it yourself. The pros and cons of the pessaries are the reverse. Crinone can also be sent via courier to a chemist, but pessaries are more widely available. But I have no opinion on whether one sustains a pg better than the other. Personal choice (of both the dr and yourself) I guess.

    Hi guys.
    I have been so incredibly tired. The puregon always does that to me, but at this high a dose I feel like I am sleeping or resting 24 hours a day. Had to come and check on you all but there is no way of doing personals as you all post way too much for me to keep track.
    Congrats to all who need it.
    Hang in there and good luck to all 2WW'ers lots of BFP's please

    As for me I had another scan yesterday. I have 8 follies over 11mm and a bunch under 10mm My dose has been upped yet again and Its hitting me hard this morning. Very uncomfortable I am. I will have another scan on monday but the nurse said this would be my last one and my OPU will be next wednesday/thursday and the ET will be friday/saturday.

    I am excited, scared and nervous all rolled into one!!

    Hope everyone is well and will try to check in again this arvo if Im not sleeping!!

    Ooooo it's getting very exciting in here. Keen, Sush and Ali - take care all of you, when does the POAS start? Or are you all being very very good and not tormenting yourselves with that?

    I have a very good vibe about everything in here.

    Take care everyone.

    Ali- "put down the stick"
    Cazz- sounds good for EPU, good luck. So what gonal-f dose are you on?

    I started stimming last night (600IU) and had a crappy sleep. But not sure if it was due to the meds or the virus!!!

    Sushee&Keen- not long now, woohoo

    Sheree - I'm glad you've started stimming again. Sorry you've had a rotten sleep. Maybe a "Nanna nap" during the day is called for. I know I should stop testing but I'm an absolute basket case at the moment. Anyway, surely if if was pg, I would have a BFP by now, wouldn't I???
