hey kitty my mind hasn't been on my work lately and I've been so emotional at work I thought I should tell him, plus with taking time off I thought I should warn him. We get on really well and he is like a friend.
Not sure what to do, maybe take 1 days holiday and then see if she will sign me off. How long is recovery time?
bunny that was brave! I didn't tell my boss I was having iui, I just said I had a lot of hospital appointments and I'd work extra to cover them. Know you'llp need recovery time though. Will you take time of as sick or annual leave for your ivf?
CD7 here, last clomid tablet was last night. During the 5day course I had a stitch-like pain in my ovaries (mostly right one) but today it's eased up, but I'm phenomenally tired. Kind of wondering if this is a sign to come, if we do have to head to IVF, cause I can't imagine the drug protocol is less daunting
Excellent news on the new meds RP, fx it makes life easier!
barking sounds encouraging about your temp; how does it look compared to past charts? I've fallen off the temping bandwagon bigtime; keep having broken nights' sleep and haven't managed to get & stay asleep for 4 hours before normal wake up time.
Barking if you O you'll get a temp rise, its caused by the progesterone, and provided your pre O temps are below normal cover line (as you said) it would seem your progesterone levels are back to normal. Did you decide what to do about your clomid after all?
Ok then Merk a question for you (and anyone else). I have no idea when to expect AF but thought it might be worth starting temping again? Do you think I'd still get a temp rise as if it were a 'normal' cycle? I've reset FF with CD1 as my first day of mc bleeding. Would anyone care to share some speculation on this?! I had ewcm for 3 or 4 days last week but my temp this morning was comfortably below my normal cover line.
So I spent an hour after work talking to my TA who I was talking to about TTCing after she lost a pg at 20 weeks. Turns out she had her BFP two weeks ago! Poor thing though is just terrified that history will repeat itself. She felt bad that she was feeling so unhappy to be pg knowing what I am going through. Still we had a rant about how TTCing.
sid wasn't it you that got a personalised 'good luck on your clomid cycle' from your private fc? I've just some info about egg sharing along with a good luck with your IUI note with it! I like it! I don't know why but I now have visions of 'good luck on your ivf/IUI/clomid/delete as appropriate' cards being sold in whsmiths. Too much?!
Evening all and hello feather - fellow newbie to the berries - glad we've both found it!
Bunny a delayed reflection on your question... I started TTC expecting it wouldn't happen naturally so I knew I'd be persuading the doc to start formal testing as soon as possible. That in itself has been upsetting because my doc is dreadful and dismissive. I had pelvic inflammatory disease when I was 17 and I was told then (by a very judgemental nurse) that I'd blown my chances of conceiving naturally. That was followed by a diagnosis of endometriosis in my early 20s All of this documented so my doc's insistence I should just be patient makes me
On a cheerful note, I saw 3D scan images of my friend's baby, due in Nov., conceived after a long time TTC including treatment at FC. Made me want to hang on in there.
