Butterfly - just read your signature and wish to extend my sympathies for your heartbreaking loss. May your little angel watch over you and I wish you the very best in your journey.
Hi Fleur thank you!
I actually had a 2 day! Put back just 1 very average looking embryo that took
Currently just past 24 wks and getting very excited to meet the lil one.

I posted a whole heap of things in a tips thread in the ivf forum but off the top of my head (I know I've missed stuff) I stopped all supplements prior to pick up, prior to transfer I ate Brazil nuts and started pineapple cores. I took 5 days off in total (pick up, day off, transfer then it was the wknd) are Brazil nuts, pineapple cores and drunk warm 100% organic grape juice and avoided chicken and any cold goods including drinks. Relaxed and even did some retail therapy but nothing exhausting - I had a vaporiser that was also great for the 2ww and relaxing after work.
One of the most important things I did was visualise - sounds corny but I used to do this on sports and tried it and just imaged the lil embryo attaching itself and making a home. I also looked at baby pics!
Haha I was so dedicated
My home preg test came up early compared to other women. Please see my signature. Im not sure why mine showed up so early but they say everyone is different.
And today I am 5weeks and 1 day.
What a great thread! Its nice to read others journey's!
I am 30 and a 1st time IVF'er in a same sex relationship using an anonymous donor through Hunter IVF (Newcastle). I am currently on day 4 of my 2WW for my first (and hopefully last) cycle! I had 5 embryo's, 2 fertilised, 1 day 3 transfer. The other embie didnt make it to the freezer unfortunately! So all hopes are on this little one in my belly!
I am telling myself not to POAS but think i will anyway! haha I thought I could pee & put it back in the box & wait till BT to see if it was correct or not? Is that just torturing myself??
Also, is there anywhere I can look up all the abbreviations? Some I am following but others are a bit more difficult!
Looking forward to chatting with you all...
was wondering if anyone had this information for a 2 day transfer... this is what I had 1st IVF cycle (now) due to only having 1 fertilised egg. Would I just deduct a day from the 3 day transfer info ?
