Always, so wonderful to hear your update on family life with little Zoe, and sorry to hear her entry was so difficult for you both but no doubt completely worth it! to you DH and Zoe.
Millie, all the best with sourcing a local donor angel, and glad to hear you have some alternative options on the table.
Spot, I'm really sorry to hear that your POAS have been negative so far, for a miracle for bt tomorrow. Regardless I think your attitude is amazing, they say peseverance is often the key!
Trying, all the best for EPU Thursday and hoping for a brilliant fert rate and many blastys Ramen and warm sake, yep that's excatly what my acupuncturist prescribed too!
Slinky, with your upcoming IUI. Do you have a start date?
Sabah, Come on AF!!! Amazing how we spend soooo much time praying she won't come and then cursing her when she is late at others! Hoping saizen is working it's magic on those eggies as we speak!
PinkB, have you started jabbing yet?
Sending lots of love and light to Drmummy, Melk, Fiona, Mum4nay, MrsDaisy and anyone else I may have missed
AFM, sorry this is may be a little long but need to share...Had FS appt today and got results from karyotyping of tissue after D&C (following our natural BFP). Found out our baby was a girl with severe chromosomal problems, including 3 sets of chromosomes and uneven chromosomes on 13 and 22.
FS's best guess is that this may have been caused by 2 sperm fertilising the egg, so again likely problems on both sides to get this result He did also say it is a common cause of miscarriage. Hearing the news of the baby's gender has been particularly devastating to me, while I know it could never have been a healthy baby girl I am gutted nonetheless and grieving for a little girl I will never know and who never had a chance.
Our previous cycle plans have been turned on their head as FS has again put PGD on the table to avoid a further miscarriage but suggested with the new array CGH technology rather than FISH (which can screen all chromosomes for abnormalities rather than just a handful with the previous technology). So lots of things to think over. The only other positive I can think of is that I have not yet cycled while I have been taking DHEA and perhaps combined with saizen we might get better quaility embies? I am terrified on one hand of going down the PGD path and finding out all of our embryos may be abnormal, but on the other hand it may help us onto a donor path...
Will be away from this weekend so sending lots of and babydust to all
