I'm suppressed!

I went in for my real suppression check yesterday. At my SIS, I was told I was suppressed then, but my clinic wanted a real suppression check to make sure I hadn't broken through. The majority of me expected yesterday to be easy and routine - which it was - but a small part of me (the part of me that has seen my body screw a lot of easy and routine things up) was a little worried.

Luckily, I had nothing to be worried about and I am suppressed!

Hubby and I discussed no longer avoiding my due date and moving forward with the transfer as soon as my lining is ready. We told our nurse that yesterday and - provided all looks good at my lining check on the 19th - we'll be moving forward with our transfer the following week.

I'm feeling good so far. This next phase - growing a lining - is the part that has been hard for my body many a' time. So I am cautiously hopeful the intra-muscular Delestrogen shots will do the trick. And, yes, I will also be on PIO in about two weeks and that's a lot of intra-muscular shots. Ouch.

(I also have a debilitating multi-day Lupron-induced headache - my first - and am going home and into bed to try to get rid of it. Am told the estrogen shots will help.)


  1. Great news!!! I hope it's the first of a line of good news you'll have!

  2. Gotta love the Lupron headaches- they are the worst!! Hopefully it goes away soon....

  3. Hoping your lining gets nice and fluffy.

  4. Your blog is amazing! I'm so happy for you! I'm sure you're inspiring many women out there! Personally I had de ivf in Ukraine. I can’t have kids without medical help. I was diagnosed with Turner syndrome. So my husband and I decided to try de ivf. When we were looking for clinic, the main criteria for us were positive reviews, professional doctors and good service. We've chosen Ukrainian clinic. Our neighbors tried donation there and the procedure was successful. They shared their reviews and thoughts about the clinic and the process with us. Also we've read some reviews of other couples, who were their clients, about good specialists, high rates of successful treatments and fertilization procedures. The clinic has good specialists and high rates of successful treatments and fertilization procedures. I’ve got pregnant from 2nd attempt. Now I have my precious girl. The clinic was just great, much to our relief! Everyone was friendly and helpful. All staff was professional. We had an English interpreter from the clinic with us at all times. She was a lovely girl and any questions were answered fully, no matter how silly you think they are to ask! Communication via email and phone was fantastic. All answers were received straight away. I couldn't hope for more caring and friendly people in so stressful time. I would recommend it to anybody. Now I have my daughter and I'm the happiest mom in the world! Speaking about price, we chose a 'Double' package for €6 900. It includes guarantees up to two attempts. They also have 'Economy' package for €4 900 with one attempt and a package for €9 900 with 5 attempts. In case of last package, the clinic promises to refund money in case of 5 failures. I have no regrets! My daughter is my little copy. The clinic controlled the whole procedure. Our program coordinator was supporting us during whole process and answered all our questions. My biggest dream came true and finally I have a family I was dreaming about for so long time. I wish you and your girls all the best! xx
