Last night we tested our new outside light in the back garden and it was evident that a cat has been in again; our baby's tree had been dug at! It had knocked our stones aside with our names on them and the little cherub we'd placed with the tree was covered in soil. I tidied it all as best as I could at 11pm and spent the next two hours lying awake researching ways to keep the cats off the garden! So all in all I didn't sleep too well last night... It also began to weigh heavily that this morning we will be back at the clinic for the first time since we were told the baby's heartbeat had stopped about 8 weeks ago. I know I'll relive it again today. To say I have mixed feelings about our appointment this morning is an understatement.
I got a bit emotional but I guess that was inevitable. Overall it was a positive appointment. I'm opting for another endo scratch on cd21 of next cycle (currently cd22 of this one, annoying I could have had one yesterday if I'd booked this appointment sooner lol). The following cycle after the scratch I have opted for a "natural" frozen transfer. I use the term loosely because although I won't down regulate this time, I will have patches to support my lining (same as last time). I just can't put myself through anymore Buserelin headaches this time! If we do get another bfp I will also have to have a daily injection of Lubion alongside the pessaries. And I will have the trigger shot before transfer too. So all in all, although the next cycle will involve more scans (one every 2/3 days from cd10 until transfer) I'm feeling more relieved. We were assured of the great quality of our three remaining frosties so that's another ➕
Frustratingly there still seems to be some confusion over our funding. We told the clinic the ccg had reimbursed us for our last fet and that we should be covered for our remaining three. That we should have been covered for all frozen embryos resulting from our first cycle. I just don't understand the lack of communication between the ccg and our clinic?! It makes a stressful situation that little bit more stressful 😕 xx
