Husband just dropped a bombshell on me last night. When we eventually go in for our FET, and if the doctors recommend throwing 2 up in there, he's all for it. Knowing fully well that could mean coming home with a set. OF CHILDREN.

    I threw 5-6 up there each of my 5 ivfs and nothing took... so 2? No big deal. Don't look for trouble (yet) where there isn't any.

I had FET yesterday at 1pm, didn't take antibiotics only Mendrol. I had cramping in the morning. Now I am having heavy cold symptoms: headache, sore body, no fever yet. Is that normal after transfer?

    Sorry you are under the weather. Everyone is different. The antibiotics are used as a precaution sometimes against infection from the procedure, but would not prevent a cold/flu.

    The yucky feeling should pass soon.

    FX for you.

    Thank you, gibasgirl! All the symptoms are nearly gone. Then I start to wonder if the body turned on the "defence" mode and rejected the outsiders including embryo. Never can worry less, sign!

i am freaking i just took my trigger shot 1/2 hour late...does it matter?

    Let your clinic know. You should be ok. Late is probably better than early. The key is to retrieve before the follicles release the eggs.

    All the best to you.

    You can always tell your doctor in the morning, but I don't think it will make any difference. I'm sure I took mine a half an hour or more late, too! Good luck!

    I agree with the others. shouldn't have an impact but let the clinic know just to be safe. They might just adjust times, but probably not.

    quandry does make a good point. I had the worst bleeding and cramping with my last, and only successful PG. if you can bring yourself to do it, wait to see what the bloodwork say. thinking of you.

Belated birth announcement, but we welcomed our son, Charles Xavier, on March 21. What a way to celebrate the first day of Spring, even if the weather doesn't know it yet. Much love and hope to all on this journey. There is light!

Why can't I lose 30 lbs, like, by next week? safely? damn thyroid. Anyone else going grain free before starting another round?

    I have cut down on grains since they are hard for me to digest ( I have Hashimotos). I found that I bloated after eating grains after I did a liver cleanse after my fibroid surgery, especially after eating quinoa. I am not really trying to lose weight but I find eating less grains help my digestive system.

    I forgot to ask what your TSH level is? I dropped 10 pounds very quickly during my DE cycle when my TSH level was around 1

    Ever tried Keto? I did this for 4-5 months at the beginning of 2013 and it did me really well, both weight and fertility wise! Good luck! Thyroids make things so stubborn.

Here's what I learned today from an article in MacLean's magazine: I am a NoMo (the term for childless by circumstance), and a PANK (Professional Aunt No Kids) living in Mom-opia, a world where motherhood is the only natural way to be a woman.
