Sorry I have been MIA, but I have had technical issues logging on.
Starf1sh - I'm so sorry this is happening to you. Another friend of mine is going through a similar trauma (using ED embies too), and has been investigating all sorts of options. An option she found (from an FS) to thicken your lining is to do the first half of a stim cycle using less FSH and not doing the EPU part (saves lots of money as you just use the FSH you have in the fridge and pay of any top-up needed). This 'triggers' your body to go through the whole 'create follies, prepare lining etc', and stops you having to use the other drugs which are more of an artificial out of sinc prompter to build that lining. My friends FS is happy to do this and we have helped her locate the necessary FSH. She starts the first try in January, and will only be charged for her apts with the FS and usual scans. The surgery makes sense too, but I can understand your reservations. It is more invasive but you never know. Wishing you all the best of luck with getting that BFP early in the New Year
Slinky - I had the operation you mentioned and it was really worthwhile as I had a higher than normal level of NK cells (and had 11 embies transferred before it was performed ). It just helped me kick one more obstacle out of my path, and now I have prednisolone and clexane with every transfer (before and after).
Spot - I'm incredibly happy you have twins onboard Your DH has got great intuition, so let us know what he thinks next week Can't wait to see you UTD
'Hi' to everyone else and 'Merry Christmas'. I flew to Brizzy on Tuesday and my last 2 embies thawed successfully. 1 wasn't doing much (a compacting morula who MUST be male), but the other was hatching and reassessed as 'bb' grade as he was prepared for my transfer. I was so grateful to have them on board. It took a year for me to get 1 transfer with Wazza due to the ED process, his overseas holiday and then his back surgery. He was wonderful, and of course, I'm having TWINS I need to book my BT for immediately after Christmas but I will be doing HPTs from tomorrow to see if a line appears and gets darker or lighter. Torture maybe, but I need to prepare myself if its a BFN, and one mechanical phone call 'Address and DOB please' after Christmas isn't going to be enough time to prepare.
Good luck to you all. We have soooo many hurdles, and I can't wait until we all graduate and are complaining about the lack of sleep, and morning sickness
