EO- Hooray for AF! I agree, so very typical that she shows on the day of your BT. Used to happen to me all the time with natural TTC, I'd wait, wait, wait til CD 30+ to POAS and then 10 mins after the BFN she would show . Love the train to Duffsville , if only it didn't have to take a detour through Nutsville in the TWW .
Sticky- I know its disappointing when the egg numbers are lower than you'd hoped, but its so important to think quality not quantity here. My EPUs have been relatively low (7 & 6 eggs), but with good fert rates we've had frosties both times. I frequently see on the monthly threads ladies having 12+ eggs at the beginning, but by ET day there's only 1 or 2 good enough to transfer and none to freeze. Chin up darl, all is not lost! You're not likely to see me at Kent St, unless its a weekend or public hol & my regular clinic (Liverpool) is closed. I have been there twice though & its very swish with the big waiting lounge and kitchenette with coffee machine. We don't have that out West!
Bella- sorry to hear of your BFN sweetie . Good on you for getting straight back on the train and joining us in the Oct action. I agree with the others that some prog support is a good idea.
Kelbelle- wow, no major fights in 15 yrs is amazing! You guys must be the perfect match . You are freaking me out with all those 5's , it has be a good sign surely?? Looking forward to hearing your EPU results today, I hope it went well and you're resting up.
Traveler- I had polscope with my first cycle, they use it to locate the spindle of the egg which contains the genetic material, and then when they inject the sperm they make sure the spindle is not damaged in the ICSI process. I had 100% fert, so it certainly didn't do any harm. My 2nd cycle at SIVF was without polscope and I had 50% fert... hmmm interesting! Its great that you've got an extra weapon going into your next cycle, and cycle 5 for TTC #2 is just uncanny!!
Crofty- Yay for moving along to Gonal! Sending good egg growing vibes your way . I've never had the jury duty summons either, but colleagues who've been said its bor-ing. I hope you case was at least a little bit interesting.
Quartz- Third time is still a charm! So exciting that your cycle has started too, bring on the BFP's!
Angela- sorry can't help on the EPU days at WFC. I do hope your E2 levels were great and your ovaries are on their best behaviour. When do you have an US to check the number of follies?
Hi to PinkB, Starf1sh, Nat, Felicita & anyone I've missed
AFM- Going in for 1st BT tomorrow morning (CD 9), but I know nothing will be happening. At least the start of the monitoring feels like something's happening and I'm getting closer to FET
