The hot water bottle during stims and Brazil nuts and pineapple core in 2ww they are meant to help with implantation. I don't like pineapple but don't mind Brazil nuts lol...
The reflexologist I go to is in Drummaroad I'm not sure were you are from but pm me and I can fill you in.
First injection was grand I closed my eyes and so did my other half you would think he was injecting himself lol xx

The core of the pineapple is harder than the rest of it but it's still edible. Just takes a bit more chewing! Lol. I did it before when I was ttc and just cut it into slices for each day, then cut each slice into chunks and ate the core first as it's not as nice then the rest. I love pineapple anyway so was easy to do. Don't like Brazil nuts though, couldn't do that!
I'll give the hot water bottle a go too. Anything that might help!

Hi curls I'm on day 3 of Bemfola and still bleeding from period which cane the day before I started which is normal. Did you bleed before you started? If stimming on Bemfola you are meant to have a withdrawal bleed before you start? I know there are so many diff meds and protocols. I'm on Bemfola and still continuing Synarel sprays alongside the injections x

hi everyone

Hi- iam new this forum- thought it would be good to chat to other in the same boat. Unfortunately I'm not new to ICSI. This will be my 6th go.

Little history -

1) private paid RVH (BFN)

2 . 3 & 4) Origin Fresh x 2 (BFN) frozen X 1 (BFN)

5) GCRM Access refund programme - 1st fresh cycle in July 2017 BFP But delivered my dd stillborn in January 2018......so back for 2nd go to GCRM and my 6th ICSI cycle....... fresh starting norethisterone on 15th April as its my day 21........

don't really count my previous goes at RVH & Origin as I don't believe they ever would have worked due to excessive bleeding from polyps and fibroids etc and needing 5 blood transfusions in middle of cycle.... consultant in my hospital said they should never have let me do cycle,,,, but I am where I am and just keep positive that my time will come.

Anyways GCRM seem to be much better and I JUST CANT WAIT TO GET UNDERWAY.......

Be good to get chatting to people at same stage and if I can answer any questions or advice please feel free to ask me.

Thanks sparkle1.

Myself and partner have been trying for 5 years and it really is hard to pick up and go again each time. My partner has 2 kids from a previous partner and had a vasectomy then had it reversed 5 years ago but our issue is his speed is low etc

I must say I had gotten used to the negative tests but it is the hardest thing I have had to do was deliver my daughter.

All being well I start memupor on the 22nd so hopefully I get a few good quality eggs to transfer.

Hopefully things are brewing well for you and maybe a few more days stimms will see you to egg collections. Keep us posted and fingers crossed for you. Xx

Can I ask if you have been doing any accupunture or anything ?

I have been doing it for over a year as think it helped regulate my period and helped with my ongoing bleeding issues... my acupuncturist thinks I am going ahead with this cycle too soon as”I am not ready” but he can’t actually tell me anything more on this?? Clinic said I am ready and I feel ready. I am not wanting to replace my DD either .... just want to get on with things as I just want to be a mummy sooo much. Anyone else had any info from accupunturist who advised them
To wait for treatment? I pay £50 per week so can’t help think he is also just treating me as a business and wanted my continued custom?

Any advice please

Hi Princess,
It sounds like you've had a really tough time. I'm sorry to hear about your dd. It's amazing how strong you are that you can keep going after that. Fingers crossed for your rainbow baby soon
I started norethisterone on Friday there and start injections on 2nd may. This is my first ICSI, I'm nervous but excited at the same time
I don't have any experience of acupuncture but I would say listen to the doctors. If they think you are ready then I'm sure you are. They have more experience than the acupuncturist especially since he can't even give you a reason why he thinks you aren't ready x

HI Janelle,


Thanks for your words. Its hard to believe I have been cycling for 4 years. But I trust in God and hope for the best.

Can I ask if your already on Norethistrone now,,, why is it so long before you start injections? I start Noresthistrone on 15th and then my injections on 27th? I would have thought you were due to start before me if already on? Your making me think I have got something wrong.... I ll have to double check my notes. eeek

what injections are you on? Ill be honest I had no side effects of anything and found the process each time to be ok. I cant complain.
The hard bit for me was up and down to clinic early mornings for scans as could have been up a few days in a row and the clinic is over an hr drive each way for a few minutes scan. My boss doesn't know I am doing this so I kinda of had to make excuses for being over 2 hours late several days xx

Anything I can help with just ask. x

hi princess i just cant imagin how hard that must have been for you delivering your dd xx
i suffered ectopic and miscarriage couple of years ago and i really struggled with that so im sure you had a really tough time, what i went through is nothing in comparison, you should be proud of youself for the strength you have.

ive been having reflexology and find it extremely relaxing, i think it def balances us , even if its just emotionally. i go to a lady who specialises in fertility reflexology.
i really hop things are progressing in there for me as we type. i was a bit gutted not seeing amy eggs on first scan but hopefully there will be a difference on friday xx

Sparkle,

Thank you.

I am a pretty strong person and very black & white so when it happened I just accepted it, Since the delivery it has been confirmed that the blood flow to placenta stopped working so all being well if I am lucky enough to get pregnant again I would be prescribed baby Asprin. Its just sad that on the Thursday DD was perfect and on the Tue at a routine scan she has died.
One positive is that I no I have nothing medically affecting me and that the baby was perfect ,,, just the blood flow.

My partners sperm is so low the doctors said we have no chance of conceiving naturally so hence my journey. I am frustrated it has taken so long but I do blame origin for that as I think they wasted 4 cycles on me knowing I couldn't get pregnant due to bleeding non stop with polyps and fibroids,,,,,(yet when I got them removed it stopped) and origin closed down.

With regards reflexology- I have heard good things especially about it relaxing you, I do acupuncture but hate it THB- I just do it in the hope it helps.

As for no eggs.... give it time they will come. You will be amazed what can happen in a short time. Plus its quality not quantity. I had 14 last time and only 2 made it at grade BB.

I know its easy said but don't focus on that - just do what your told-show up for app and hope for the best xx

I don't know why it's so long before I start injections. I haven't don't it before so I've no clue about any of it. I'm in norethisterone for 18 days then a 7 day break and then start injections. Maybe it's to fit in better with the clinic appointments or something. It's my free go on the nhs so maybe they just need me to fit in with them.
I'm on menopur then after a few days I add in cetrotide as well. Then ovitrelle trigger 36 hours before EC.

origin is based in Belfast. Patients have been handed over to GCRM Belfast if they wished.

During my cycles I kept reporting that I had constant bleeding and it was stalled and stated and stalled and started costing me a fortune. The told me that bleeding can be normal.
One app I asked them to test my blood level which they did, they called me back to say it was half what it should be and told me to buy some iron tablets.

Over the net few weeks I bleed more and eventually when my blood was 2.4 I collapsed and was rushed to hospital..... I was so weak and anomic. This was in the middle of a cycle, I needed 5 blood transfusions and had a d&c and the polyps and fibroids removed.
The consultant at the hospital could not believe I was in the middle of a cycle and ordered me to stop. This actually happened a further time several months later. Because I had been doing a cycle so long the clinic had to do tests again as said mine and partners had expired (think it was HIV etc) and that their protocol was valid for 1 year. I did cause a bit of a fuss about more money so they did do these free of charge in the end/ Anyways the consultant more or less said I couldn't have gotten pregnant as my lining was too thin and shedding.
He said I should ask for a refund. Ill be honest I didn't as I dint want to cause ill feeling with the clinic after all I was relying on them so didn't want them to dislike me or do anything which could affect my chance (even though I know they wouldn't) but I was just so wanting it to work I believed in them and I am were I am.

Since all has cleared up I did my cycle with GCRM which was positive so hopefully I get the same this time. I really do hope this is my time now.

Trust me a lot will have changed between today and Friday and they can always up the dosage a little for a few days, Plus you don't want them to grow too quickly 1-2mm per day I think is good.
I seen this on another post about encouraging follicle growth tips:

"eating a healthy diet with lots of protein (eggs, cheese, milk, lean meat, lentils, beans, nuts, seeds, chick peas (hummous), using a (warm) hot water bottle on my tummy to keep it warm, cutting back my usually intensive exercise programme to a 30 min walk every day (helps blood flow but doesn't take blood flow away from ovaries) . You should also be drinking at least 2 litres of clear liquid (water) and 1 litre of milk a day. I'm not a milk drinker so I upped my cheese and yoghurt consumption to compensate. I also cut out alcohol completely a few weeks before my cycle started"

Ill be honest I didn't do anything special just used my common sense. Big hugs xx

You must have started then on day 1 with the North. I will be starting on day 21 so only on it a week. That explains it, Suppose it all works out the same in the end.

Your lucky you got the free go- I never as partner had a vasectomy with his ex wife so that ruled him out for me and him so we paid reversal and cycles our self.


I am on similar cycle to you then ... we can compare notes ;)

I started on day 21 too. It seems odd that I'm on them for so long and your only on them for 7 days. I'm sure they know what they are doing though. The nurse did say you could only be on them for 24 days or less and that 18 days would be fine. Just be some reason for it x

Yeah that's what I was thinking. I just read an article about it and it said that it controls your cycle and should be taken roughly 6 weeks before egg collection. This is the article if anyone's interested.
The Truth About Norethisterone And IVF | Your IVF Journey
I'm doing ok on the tablets. Tender boobs is about the only thing I've noticed, but I would get that between ovulation and period normally and I think that's kinda what the tablet mimics anyway as it's just progesterone. So far I've remembered to take them all. I'm terrified of forgetting them lol.

hi all

I checked last nite as thought I might have got this wrong. I start North. on cycle day 21 which will be 15th of April for 7 days and then they allow 5 days for period to start. All being well that I have a bleed I start my Injections on 27th April.

Maybe I started late as when I did my starting app I had my period already so maybe that why. Anyway cant complain as the less tabs for me the better.

I haven't had any symptoms previously from the tablets or any of the medications thank god, but I think even if I had I am too stubborn and busy to notice. I tend to just get on with things.
This forum helps me clear my mind though as its just really myself and partner know we have been doing ICSI (NOONE ELSE KNOWS) so its good to talk and share things.

I was just thinking some of us could be sitting in the clinic waiting area together and may not even know it. xx

Hi Princess, you really have been through the mill. I admire your courage and determination. A Dr once told me it’s not if IVF will work it’s when, so fingers crossed this is your time. Wishing you lots of love and luck going forward.

I am now only 2 days away from blood test to find out if we’re BFP or BFN. I am so nervous. Reading into every last symptom I may or may not have.

Hope everyone else feeling good today whatever stage you’re at.

Mewsbabes

thanks for your message.

You had done well to not test already. That's the hard not. Waiting !!

I really hope it works for you as its great to have a positive outcome and know it was worth it. I hope you share your result with us. Positive vibes to you and your wee bean :)

I am just at the beginning starting North on cd21 for 1 week and hopefully bleed then stimms on 27th April... Usually stimm 7-10 days then the rest is history. Its really weird though as my due date is approaching and I really would love a positive result. Not to replace Jude but to offer her a bro or sis would be great. But for me its not about "if" I get a positive but "when" i get my positive. xxxxxx

ps your almost there,,,,,,,,, don't google ........ embrace what's happening and what your experiencing and believe xxxxx

Girls

Question: Does your work knowing your doing treatment?

I have never told anyone and found the scan apps difficult as had to be Belfast first thing and it takes 90 min to get to work from there,. I start at 8:30 so usually means I not getting to work until near 10am and kinda running out of excuses for apps and also as days change for scan at short notice deepening on follicle size etc or do you just take a certain amount of time off work?? My partner keeps telling me to take time off but i am not that sort of person esp working in a school I am usually never off unless extreme reasons (was off 3 days when dd passed) Not that I dint want more time to grieve... just that I am a strong person and get on with things xx

let me know your plans pls

Princess definitely hats of to you, I took off from when I started the injections to after test day. I think it was 4/5 weeks in total. I understand having to work but my attitude was I’m going to give this my whole attention and after all I had the attitude I’m only a number at work and it will still be there when I’m done. In saying that if we do it again I would do things differently I think I would take off from egg collection to test day because you never know if it’s going to be a three day or five day and your right there’s only so many excuses an employer will take and I don’t think mines would appreciate me saying I might be off and I might not do to make things simpler and to take the stress of me iit would just be time off no questions asked. That way I could rest during the two week wait as I found it so exhausting the first time. I think everyone deals with the treatment differently some are able to work the whole way through but when asked after they always say if they had to do it again they would take time off. It also depends on what kind of work you do, for me my job is very stressful.

Thanks Princess. I’m no stranger to IVF myself either. This is no 5 for us. No 1 & 3 worked and gave us two healthy boys which I treasure. My husband is sterile so he has no sperm, we use a donor, same donor for each cycle so my kids are full siblings. We have 3 excellent quality blasts from this cycle frozen and 2 transferred, can only hope 1 has decided to stick!

I did tell my work what was happening and they have been very good, I took 2 weeks off to go through all the procedures. Get the result this Friday and then back to work this Monday.

My manager does know what's going on, but you shouldn't have to tell them. You could just say hospital appointments, without anything more specific. Surely they can't ask? And then if dates change just blame the hospital. My colleagues don't know, so I've always just said hospital appointment, and if I've felt the need to say any more, have thrown in the word 'gynae'. That stops people asking any questions!

I appreciate that and tbh my work has never actually asked too much about the apps but my manager did make the comment "your never here" to which I replied "i lost my baby stillborn and was off 3 days" "perhaps i should have taken my 6 months off" not that i should even have to justify things i really did feel though that i came back to work feeling bad my work loads would have had to be managed without me but at the same time i thought t myself your grumbling over a few app!!! :-( its prob more nosiness on their part.

Your extremely lucky to have 2 children already but that's a good idea using the same donor. Our fertility issue is that my partner spern isn't that great and funny i have asked about a donor but was told we don't need one as the clinic are able to pick the best ones. I suppose its just getting it to stick. Your bound to be sooo nervous to find out esp as only few days.... oh i feel your excitement and nerves xx Cant wait to find out for you xx

I work as an accountant in school. Our year end accounts are due now and filing to the education dept is May etc and I don't think the principal would appreciate me being off but as you say ..... i am only a number. I always have had a great attitude to work and never have days off. Its funny cos I would have been starting my maternity now soon had i not have had dd still born.

I am actually going to call my GP and ask her can she write me something to say I will be having a few test done so will need in and out of work. Cant imagine having a week off though as my nerves would be wrecked. I would prob be testing every hour lol xx

I'm a self employed childminder and my mum, who is also a childminder, is usually able to cover the children i mind when i have appointments. I haven't told any of the parents, just that i have an appointment and that my mum can cover, I've never hand any issue with that thankfully. I won't be taking much time off, maybe just egg collection, as I would rather be busy and my work isn't stressful or any harder than just looking after your own children anyway. Thankfully the royal is only 20-30 mins away from me too so doesn't take too much time out of my day either.

10 days of tablets down, 8 more to go. Can't wait now to just get started on the injections. Feel like I haven't really started yet with just the pills. No really side effects so far, maybe a couple of headaches and a few spots but that could be other things.
How's everyone else getting on?
CQCQ, did I see somewhere that your EC was today? X

Hi Janelle yeah I had EC today!! Got 20 eggs, but they are going to freeze whatever fertilises as I have OHSS and they said it wld be to dangerous and I would become very sick if they proceeded!! I was totally heartbroken earlier but now that I’ve had time to think I know it’s for the best and will hopefully be worth it in the end!! X

Princess, that's great that we will be going through it together. We will definitely keep each other updated along the way.
CQCQ, 20 eggs is amazing! The OHSS is rubbish but it's definitely better to be waiting as you don't want to get sick and your body will before more ready for the embryo if you wait. How long do you need to wait now?

Beginning to feel like I've been on these tablets forever! Think it's because I was just so excited to be started and now it doesn't really feel like I've started at all. Just more waiting. Just taking a tablet 3 times a day and it's not really doing anything (not that I really want side effects but at least then I'd feel like something was happening). Still have 6 more days of tablets and then a week of nothing before even getting to injections. Feel like EC and ET are still so far away. Sorry just feeling like a rant! Lol.
I'm loving reading about everyone else's experiences though, giving me good insight when it eventually comes around for me lol.
