Down Under

I created this blog to help me as I go through IVF. I feel quite isolated and have found other blogs very helpful. I need somewhere to vent and ramble on, whilst I'm probed and prodded down under.

Saturday Transfer and M/C mentioned

Today after work I transfered 1 embryo, the last from the batch of 5. Things worked out as it was scheduled for 2.10pm, it was at the Royal Women's (2 blocks from work) and my Dr was only about 15 minutes late. My sister was working with me and was going to come in and look at it on the screen, but we were still busy and she had to stay at the shop. I hope that doesn't sound weird, she wouldn't have gone down the business end or anything like that. It hurt like crazy today, My Dr was finding it difficult to get into my cervix, so there was a fair bit of cramping and a bit of blood. The embryologist said embryo was perfect and doing what it was suppose to be doing. I said thanks and just said in my head "been there done that".

I asked my Dr if we could do PGD in the new year if this one follows the general pattern of the rest and he said ok. I have just had a quick glance at the PGD threads on IVF Connections and I'm in two minds now. I'll have to do more research over the next few weeks.

I'm also on antibiotics at the moment for a sinus infection. My Dr said it was ok to take them and transfer. It's not helping things with all the bushfire smoke around at the moment. We have our dogs' Christmas break up party tomorrow. The weather prediction is hot north winds and about 38, I actually hate getting the sun on me, so I'm not sure if we will go yet. Pity Leo is keen to defend his title as the dog that can eat the fastest. His technique is to not chew anything just swallow it.

My sister also had a Drs appointment today at the Women's. She miscarried 3 weeks ago and went in for a check up and pathology. The problem was trisnomy 13 (spelling?) and we were teary when she came back as she found out it was a girl. She says she is ok and her two little boys keep her busy. It's been good to talk about things with her.

That's all for the moment, hopefully I will catch up with the Melbourne girls soon. Wish I had better news to report.
