⚠️Sensitive Post⚠️ BFP!!!!

OTD should actually be Xmas Day, but as the clinic is closed they moved it to Xmas Eve....

IT’S ONLY A BFP 😆 🎉 The best Xmas present EVER....our little 5BB pumpkin has done us proud!! 😘🎃😘

For today we are just going to enjoy every moment and forget about the weeks to come, as after 7 losses from a combination of natural conception and IVF and this being our 7th transfer and never getting past 8wks I know the weeks ahead are going to be anxious and as much as I want to get to each scan I’m also so worried about them at the same time. I don’t think it’s fully sunk in, as other than noticeable cramping all day 2dpt, having to do lots of number 2’s 🙈 and slightly sore boobs, I had no other symptoms, and yet in the same breath I’m already planning the next 12months in my head!

I had a good feeling about this donor from the day I read her profile. Something just ‘feels’ right this time and I just hope that feeling stays and is a reflection of how the next 8months will be!!

I really think having the ‘Hidden C’ test, followed by hysteroscopy and deep implantation cuts at a clinic in Athen last month has worked its magic and I’m so glad we decided to go and do it and delay treatment for a month. Even my own clinic were shocked at how much scar tissue was in my womb when they saw a copy of the dvd from my procedure!

My clinic have agreed to let me take the meds that Athens also prescribed basically at my own risk, so although I was getting a positive from the evening of 4dpt 🙈 I waited till 8dpt to know it was definately a good positive, so have now increased my clexane from 1x 40ml per day to 2x 40ml per day, along with starting a 30 day course of antibiotics (both these are what Athens advised if a BFP) I’m also taking Lubion, progynova 3 times a day, and steriods....had to get a pill box to put everything in!! along with 3 injections a day! But I’m hoping with having the procedure, increasing the clexane and taking the antibiotics may be the key to our success ❤️❤️🎃 the first rung on the ladder....and plenty more steps ahead, but we are so amazing thankful for our positive.

I’ve also had my hcg levels checked to ease my worries, Day 8 = 91, Day 10 (yesterday) = 359.5, so almost trebled in 2 days which will ease my anxiety for a short time anyway!

Our best Xmas present ever!! 🎄🎃🌈🌟....Roll on next Xmas as hopefully that one should be even better 🙏🏻❤️🧡💛💚💙💜👶🏻🎃🎄🌟

Haha! That actually rhymes!! Lol! I paint mine with normal nail varnish and then pick it all off! Haha!

It’s so hard to enjoy once you’ve experienced a loss, but I’m hoping if I just try to carry on living as normal then the days/weeks will pass by. I’ve stocked up on hair dye spray as going to see how long I can go without having a meltdown over all my grey roots that need doing every 4-5wks! Xx

Oh my love I’m so very happy for you. Congratulations so totally deserved. Best Christmas present ever!!! I know you’ve had such a tough journey. Lovely strong positive tests. Mine showed as 2-3 weeks when I tested day after my missed period ( where as my chemical pregnancy showed as 1-2 weeks same day I’d testing too) & I’m now 17 weeks so think it’s a very good sign. Sign of a strong healthy baby 😍

Happy Christmas too 🎄🎄🎁🎁✨✨❤️❤️xoxo

Congratulations on the bfp! ✨

I understand a lot of the anxieties.. I know you’ll at least enjoy it today.

Ps I’m genuinely interested; why are you taking a double dose of clexane? It’s just that when I spoke to haematology in Birmingham they said that for my weight I’m taking the correct dose (40mg) but I worry about my blood clotting all the time xx

Aw thank Tugs, I know you understand exactly the anxiety issues that follow a bfp after losses. I hope your doing ok, not long for your scan now.

Re the clexane, it’s not something my clinic here do, however the clinic in Athens stated that until I had a bfp to take 1x 40ml per day until bfp and then up to 2. They have suggested this as I suffer with sticky blood and I think it’s because your blood becomes thicker anyway on bring pregnant so that’s why Athens suggest this protocol. It’s taken a lot of back and towing between clinics but thankfully mine have agreed for me to do this as my own risk (not that there seems to be any risks unless I cut myself) I thought I’ve tried everything else so want to give this a go. Who knows what the answers are, but I so have a lot of faith in Athens.

Hope you have a lovely Xmas! Xxx

Reply

Can’t help but worry that I’m not on enough now with my sticky blood condition (lupus anticoagulant) but then again I find something new to worry about every day! I guess I have to just trust what haematology told me 🥴

Merry Christmas to you and congrats again on the bfp xx

Aw you don’t need to worry! But I know is easy too, you are def on the right dose. I used to be on 20ml, but Athens said anyone with sticky blood should def me on 40ml, so take some comfort from that lovely and sounds like you’ve got some good specialists looking after you. Know one really knows the answers and that’s what the frustrating part is!

We’ll both get there 😊 xx

Oh congratulations !!!!!

My goodness I didn't realise you had been through so much - what a wonderful and strong ass BFP!!! Lol long may it continue

It sounds like you're on a really good protocol and similar to mine

Not sure what else we can throw at this thing !

Our OTD was today too although we tested on Friday with a strong positive on PINK frER test. Again today another strong one (although I almost gave myself a heart attack using the clinics official one with very diluted urine and a very faint line!)

Unfortunately the worry doesn't end does it- this is my first bfp ever and it's not going as well as I as hoped

Fingers crossed for all of us this Xmas - it does seem a magical year for a lot of us xx
