    That is truly the biggest gift. It would be a tough choice though- deciding to try one more cycle or going straight to donor eggs. Did he mention DHEA as well as GH? My specialist has vaguely mentioned egg quality issues for me and last cycle I was put on GH and whilst it didn't boost my egg numbers it did improve percentage fertilisation and it did produce two apparently perfect blasts so it's all food for thought. I'm going to try DHEA now before my Wazza appointment. I only mention it because we are the same age.
    I hope you are okay- this journey is a nightmare- I just want off the infertility rollercoaster.
    Sorry for my delayed response @Ducky01. I'm ok, still some tears and being with my insensitive MIL who has mentioned her desire for grandchildren 5 times in 2 days is unbearable.

    We really don't know what to do, I'm leaning more towards DE but it's hard to know. We are having a week away together once we survive Christmas so we will be able to chat about it and just be a normal couple for a little while.

    What is your next step?

    @Ladydee - congrats!!! A heartbeat for Xmas- that's amazing.
    @mummymaybe - I hope you are coping. What on earth is your MIL on?! What planet is she from? How dare she comment. Does she know your story? Our family doesn't know the full extent of ours and I don't want to face them tomorrow and put on a happy face- so can't be bothered. We stopped telling people after the first failed cycle- sharing bad news is too hard. I was supposed to be pregnant by this Xmas so tomorrow will cut deep. I don't know why I make these silly milestones for myself- it just sets me up for disappointment. A week away sounds divine though- are you heading overseas? I guess you can clear your mind. Is your DH keen on donor eggs?
    we are moving up to brissie next week so I'm unsure if I try get things kicked off with another FS or wait til April for my Wazza appointment. Seems ages away. I will start DHEA (my current FS wrote a script) and probably use growth hormone again- I need to persevere with my eggs as I don't have a sister so a donor is a less likely option. Keep yourself sane tomorrow- I plan on taking time outs- if anyone offers me fertility advice or tells me to relax and it will happen I will punch them in the nose.

    @Ducky01, I know exactly how you feel. We were meant to be pregnant by last Christmas then this Christmas so it's such a hard time. Deep breaths and a few glasses of wine lovely. Family can be really insensitive sometimes.

    MIL knows we are doing ivf but regardless of anything we tell her she is just insensitive. She said to me the other day "it's so sad you don't have your baby for Christmas" I was stunned then she went on to tell me she was referring to our dog who is staying with friends while we spend Christmas in Tasmania. She posts me leaflets about infertility, tells me to relax, loose weight and worst of all how disappointed DH must be that I can't give him a baby!!!!

    DH is happy to use donor eggs, but we haven't decided if we want one more go with mine. He is really worried about my health and how hard I found the last cycle both physically and emotionally.

    Yay for moving to Brisbane, you must be excited. Do you have family and friends here? Trust me you won't wait until April to see Warren.

    @mummymaybe - wow how on earth do you deal with that from your MIL?! Isn't your issue mainly MFI too?! Mine was staying with us during the TWW of our first cycle which was a flop but she just avoided the topic completely. That was awkward! Maybe Wazza will try lower doses of the same meds to get you a smaller quantity of better quality eggs? Anyway I'm sure he has ideas. It's a tough call. I'm keen to do the growth hormone again even though its pricey.
    Im from brissie but have been away a while and a few close friends there now have kids so I don't know where I will fit in. I hate that feeling- being out of the mummy circle.
    i love your wine suggestion

    @Ducky01 I just keep reminding myself she is a silly old cow and doesn't know better. Also making sure I'm not alone with her and lots of wine and cider.

    Friends with kids is hard, but meeting people without kids is pretty hard as well. We still have one couple who don't have kids but sadly they are also doing ivf.

    I really hope your day tomorrow has a little bit of joy. DH has gone above and beyond with some thoughtful gifts this year and I feel very special.

    Gah, I'm bleeding It's a first for me as I usually don't start bleeding until after stopping the Progesterone support even after finding out the heartbeat has stopped. I had a gush and then some more since. Annnnd it's a Sunday tomorrow so I have no one to talk to... don't even know if I should inject Clexane tomorrow morning if I don't fully miscarry tonight? This will be my 5th loss in a row this year....I wonder how many more I can go through before completely losing my mind? Over it.

    Hugs ladydee. Not sure what advice to give. Can you go to your ed and get a scan at all. I would continue on with support until you know 100% what is happening
