Hi guys,

I'm new to all this, so please bear with me if I get it all wrong.

My hubby and I had our egg retrieval on the 19th of December and our embryo transfer on the 21st of December (the lucky last for the year at our clinic).

Our clinic is closed over the Xmas/NYE break until next Monday, but I had to have my pregnancy blood test yesterday and they told me someone would contact me after 4.30pm yesterday with the results as one of the nurses was going in to do just that yesterday afternoon.

It got to 5 and no call, so I called them, and of course, no answer. It got to 6.30 and I thought I was going crazy. By 7.30 I had convinced hubby that I was going to do a home test while he was home because I didn't trust myself to not do it after he'd left for work.

The home test came back positive, 2-3 weeks...... The thing is, I still can't get hold of anyone at our clinic and I'm worried now that it might be a false positive due to the Crinone Gel?

There is an 'urgent' number I can contact at our clinic, but I'm not sure this would be classified as 'urgent' or just 'impatient'.... I really don't want to have to wait until Monday! haha

Any help, advice or just some friendly words would be great, thanks so much

Ahhhh, I know, I'm so worried that the  'urgent' number is for the Specialist though and I don't want to disturb him on his holidays! LOL

ellabella if you don't mind me asking what next? do you have an appointment next week?

Hi Lisags - I spoke to the nurse from our clinic and she said that they'd like me in for a 7 week U/S, but I'm on night shift that week and have to wait until the following week since I have a negative amount of leave at work and I've only been there 6 weeks.

I was on some medication to help kickstart things and get the embryo to 'stick', and I now have to wean off the Prednisilone and stop the Crinone Gel altogether.

Thats about it, so far!

What were you using the prednisolone for?

I had to take 2 x 5mg twice a day starting on the day of the EPU. That's now dropped to 1 x 5mg twice a day until further notice

*EDIT* I think it's to do with suppressing my immune system after the ET so that my body doesn't fight the embryo
