    Hellooooo ladies

    Munchkin who is your FS? You were with fertility centre springwood right ?

    Catemer are u still around?

    Skizzy how are u doing?

    Cabbage has AF arrived yet? It's not over until she shows up

    Well... My FS kept consistent with his 50 50 theory. First we did half ivf and half icsi. Then he decided to froze 4 eggs on day 3. I had told him I wanted day 5 blastocyst. Rest he decided to wait till day 5.

    I was so mad at him for doing that but what did I know!! There is a reason he is FS and I am a bank officer.

    On day 5 only one of my emby turned to blastocyst with such a low quality that they decided to change the culture and give it another day! 2 were at early morula and 2 arrested.

    Today only 1 of them made it to blastocyst stage:-( so over all I only have 5 on ice.

    It seems all 10 which got fertilized reached day 3 but things started to go wrong at morula stage. Will discuss with FS next time if it is egg quality or sperm morphology issue.

    Past two days it felt like my babies are dying one by one. I know life doesn't start probably till embryo gets attached and growing in uterus but I can't help feeling sad for them !

    Dancing Queen - I don't understand much about IVF but I think I would feel sad if they were my eggs too I hope the ones you have attach and create the gorgeous baby you want.
    I got a BFN this morning ;( It has made me more sad this time. IUI seems like such a gamble... One that hasn't paid off so far. AF hasn't shown yet but I expect she will... She usually makes an entrance 17 days post ov.
    Best of luck to the 2WW'ers xxx

    Dancing Queen my FS is Scott sailisbury at QFG if I go for ivf I will go to the fertility centre at springwood cause it's so much cheaper!!!!
    5 frosties is still a great number my first round I only got 1 frosty and second round I got none but it's still heart wrenching when one doesn't make it

    Hi Nvyankee

    Welcome to the group.

    I dont understand the code language that well either. For eg i still dont know what MIA and AFM stands for. I have a rough idea that it is Away from Bub Hub and About myself respectively.

    Anyways to answer your question. Was this your first FS (Fertility Specialist) Appt? If yes you and DP may have got loads of test to do to see whats the problem. Depending upon the results a course of treatment will be specified to you.

    Everyone is different. I will tell you my journey so far. I was with different FS before who upon seeing the results just said that i have irregular ovulation and put me on clomid to ovulate me regularly. he didnt monitor me or anything and asked me to see him after 4 months (which i found weird)
    After 2 month of clomid i still didnt get preggo. In my third month my AF got delayed for like 55 days which was my longest cycle. Still my FS refused to see me so i did the right thing and changed my FS.

    My current FS told me that apart from irregular ovulation my hubby also have low morphology problem. his is bang on 4%. Anything lower than that is considered poor morphology. He said clomid alone will never work and put me on IUI.

    I did 3 cycles of IUI all BFN's. I had an option of either doing 4th IUI or go straigh to IVF. I opted doing IVF.

    that was my treatment so for. Depending on your results your treatment will be different. Ask loads of questions to your FS before starting any treatment .

    Hope rest of my buddies are doing fine as well.

    I am 3dp4dt (3 days past 4 day transfer) today and am freeking out. My hubby was talking about baby names last night! he has also started googling things about IVF which is new for him. I am worried that if I dont get BFP this time he will be heartbroken. I am worried for him.

    I go from being positive to being negative like 100 times in a day. This TWW is the hardest so far.

    Hi Nvyankee

    Welcome
    I can try to help with any of the acronyms eg AFM = As for me and MIA = missing in action, TWW = two week wait, TCC = trying to conceive, FS = fertility specialist, IMO = in my opinion, IYKWIM = if you know what I mean, AF = aunty flow
    Anyways I can't think of any other at the top of my head but just ask away

    Dancing queen hit the nail on the head with her explanation it really boils down to what ur infertility is as to what treatment is best for you and making sure you are happy with ur FS

    Hope everyones well

    Hi all!

    Welcome Nvyankee! Good luck with your cycle and feel free to ask anything you are unsure about.

    DQ, yep I'm still here, more stalking than talking though. We are doing good. Trying to focus on more things than just baby making to try and cushion the blow for if it's not a bfp. Sorry you only ended up with 5 bubsicles but at least you know your 5 dayer is strong and a survivor. FX (fingers crossed) that'll be your little sticky one. I've been thinking maybe we need to look at that for next round if we need it.

    Munchkin we are doing well. DP is having some cramping. We are trying to stay positive but trying to prepare for the worst all at the same time. I've had some really stressful days at work so have been a bit of a cranky pants, but DP is still chugging along and forgiving me for being snappy! She really is just the greatest.

    By DP's calculations AF is due tomoro but clinic says 23rd. Bt is in 24th which is our 9 yr anniversary so hopefully it is good news.

    Catemer really really hope this is it for you :-) I can understand all the stress that comes with tww.

    Munchkin r u planning another cycle when AF arrives?

    Chubear glad u r still around. All the best for the scan.

    Hello to all my other stalking buddies :-)

    AFM I don't have any symptoms so far :-( not even light cramping. No implantation bleeding nothing.....

    Has anyone used the horrible crinone 8% cream yet? This is my first time on the cream and not liking it so fat. TMI ALERT !!!!!!

    small chunky stuff comes out like my inside of uterus is melting or something. I called the nurse at qfg in horror today thinking that my embryo is sure to come out if this goes on. She put my mind at ease saying that what comes out is just the left over cream!! I was so relieved after talking to her .
    Just wanted to know if any of you lovely ladies have used this progesterone cream before and had same side effects.


    Sorry again for TMI

    Well I know we have the option between IUI or IVF (as my partners sperm doesn't mature enough to fertilise an egg so we have to use donor sperm) but my FS said to try IUI first seeing as Im young and should be able to fall pregnant easily (hopefully). He's been through this all before as he did IVF with his ex wife but has a memory like a sieve so doesn't remember much so it doesn't really help. Ive researched all of it but its like reading a medical journal I don't know what half the stuff means and my FS just said for me to get blood tests and ultrasound and then shell explain more but I wanna know now haha

    what is BFN and DP Sorry Im completely clueless
