Welcome to the group, Mrs Goode.

How is everybody doing?

Update time from me...

I got my hCG trigger shot (10,000 iu) on the 24th morning, flew to Dubai on the 24th night,"tried" on the 25th, 26th, 27th, and 28th (in my parents' home - ask me how much fun that was :oops: ). The infertility specialist in India said I should get a scan done on the 27th to confirm ovulation, so I read up about this one doctor who specialises in PCOS, and went to see her on the 27th.

Man, do I regret it.

She told us that the treatment I had undergone (Clomid + HMG + hCG trigger and Progynova pills every morning) was/is completely wrong and unnecessary, and that "even if, by some miracle," I get pregnant this cycle, it will most probably (99.5%) end in a miscarriage, because the egg will be over-mature. She told me to "stop taking all medication at once", including Metformin.
She also said that there was no use in doing a scan, and that the only way to confirm ovulation is to do a blood test (to check my Progesterone levels) after a few days (on the 3rd of May).

I'm so upset... I mean...it's not fun to go through all that and then have someone tell you it was all wrong and "not scientific".

My parents and DH think I should consult with someone else, which I will do, definitely, but there is this small part of me that is absolutely crushed. :cry:

I'm 2DPO today and DH decided we should scrap the NTNP haha. So I am hoping to POAS on July 10th or 11th!

How is everyone else?

Oooh...good luck, Kandii! FX for you!

DH and I moved to Canada in May, one day after I found out that I'm pregnant! At my first ultrasound, we saw two heartbeats...looks like we're having twins! :) I've been diagnosed with hyperemesis gravidarum (extreme morning sickness) and am currently on medication.

11 weeks and 5 days today...can't wait for the next ultrasound! :)

Hey ladies! I've been MIA for a while. I'm 2 dpo today. I went for my day 16 ultrasound on Tuesday and got the trigger. So I'm just waiting!

Good luck Kandi!

Kat, I'm so excited for you! Twins! Sorry about the morning sickness. I hope it resolves itself soon. Hopefully the medication is helping you feel better!

Thanks! :)

Canada is great so far. I'm still waiting for my residency paperwork to come through, so I haven't been doing much...just "enjoying" the wonderful morning sickness!

Planning to see the doctor sometime this week to get the results of my latest bloodwork and possibly get an ultrasound schedule.

Good luck with the Femara, Southern! FX for you!
