Hi all. Have replied to a few posts but not said a first hello! Am also having a wibbly day. I am 44, ttc since getting married in 2014; 3x failed fresh ivf, 1x failed fet. After a pause and some thought, we are now doing first DE cycle w frozen eggs. Am now thickening up lining ready for hopeful transfer in less than 2wks.
Why today's wibble? Hubby has developed flu like illness overnight, temp was 38 this morning! I now have him on reg paracet and ibuprofen in case temp affects the sperm, not to mention cold flannels on his privates despite all protests! (If any protest, I mention my endometrial scratches to him!!) So hope sperm will be ok.. temp now seems a lot better.
AND I have fallen behind with work admin due to feeling poorly on all the progesterone.. I have a day off today which was meant to help with getting relaxed.. and here I am catching up with paperwork.. but at least it helps my stress levels. I have all of next week off which is good.
Anyway, hello everybody, and if there is anyone else out there going through DE, be good to hear from you. Also, this will be our first time for ICSI (they have to do ICSI because of using frozen eggs... should we pay the extra for IMSI? I haven't discussed it with the consultant, going to email her secretary..)
