HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU ALL

Post by geraldine » Thu Jan 02, 2003 3:30 pm

hello everyone<br> I haven'nt logged on since before xmas as yet again things were not looking to good as i had bleeding for a couple of days about 2/3 days after ET,clinic said it could be down to low hormone level after ET.I was so disapointed as this was my 3rd ivf/icsi attempt and also as 2 blastocysts were transfered which have a much higher success rate,i felt this was never going to work for me,ever.I continued to have the most awful A/F pains and was expecting full flow any minute of every day leadind up to my test{boxing day}even decided to get totally hammered on xmas day,thats how sure i was that i had failed yet again,i had 10 people round for xmas dinner,hating every minute of it but things seemed so much better after my 4th glass of strongbow{funny that},even better after alot more,was even doing the cheeky girls dance with my 7 year old niece{cringe}.So anyway,got up with sore head decided to do test before better half got up to get it over with,as i did with 1st and 2nd time and shock,horror there in front of me were 2 blue lines,suddenly felt very sick and panicky.So to say the least we're both still in shock,5 weeks pregnant and scan on 14th,can't wait....<br> so i'd just like to say there is a light at the of the tunnel after all,even negative people like myself get it wrong sometimes.<br> good luck to everyone for 2003 on the most emotional rollercoaster in the world.<br> love ger xxxx

laura<br> thanks,it was an amazing xmas pressie,but its still early days so i'm keeping my fingers firmly crossed.thought i'd mention i had acupuncture during treatment this time as i had read an article in a mag that it prepares the uterus to accept embryos but most importantly the success rate doubles during acupuncture, as i am a bit of a sceptic i wasn't to sure at first but thought what the hell,so i don't know if it helped this time or if it would have happened anyway,but its definately worth a go,i,m going to go once a month throughout pregnancy as he's taken alot of woman through full term.i'll be glad to answer any questions if anyone is interested.<br> love ger xxxxx
