The news is this – he is fine with me doing the donor egg cycle in Thailand, he is fine with me taking the birth control pill (gosh it has been 8 years since I have had that – those were the days when I was worried about getting pregnant!!), the progynova and the crinone. He is most worried about the travel to Thailand since that was when I had the blood clot before as well as during the pregnancy. So, to mitigate the risk of travel and pregnancy I will be having injections of Clexane daily from the day of travel and right through the pregnancy if I happen to get a positive!!
I have had this Clexane before, indeed I even had to have it on our wedding day because we were going to Thailand the next day. The injections themselves don’t particularly hurt but It is pretty stingy for about 10mins afterwards. The IVF injections seemed very tame in comparison to these ones that I had when travelling – I am hoping that my mind is playing tricks on me and that after the 5 cycles of IVF these won’t be so bad!! The previous times when I had these Clexane injections – I had them for 3 days (the day before the flight, the day of and the day after) on the way there and then 3 days on the way back. The thought of having these daily injections for 9 months is quite daunting – oh well, I am sure that it will be worth it!!
I have emailed this news to the Thai doctor and was hoping for a quick response – seriously, he normally comes back to any of my questions within around half an hour however I got an email from his assistant saying that he is away in China until 7 September so I am back in the waiting zone to hear what the timetable is and what the next steps are **sigh*. We are very happy though, this was a big worry for JourneyMan and I, we were very concerned about the blood clotting so now we can really start planning everything in earnest!!
Great news, people and thanks to Summer, Chelle and Jill for your good wishes, I really appreciate it!! JourneyMan and I are really excited – it is only around 13 weeks away, so exciting!!
