What r arrested embies, I've heard this term a couple of times now? Day 8 of stims, it certainly is a lot to take but your obviously doing well - when's your US due to determine EPU?
[QUOTE=SL1009;6602506]Sometimes rice does work but if you have an iPhone you can go into apple and get a brand new one for $180. My gf dropped hers in the loo and she took it to a little place in the city (Melbourne) who dried it out and it was fine!

Hi sl1009 thanks for the tip. Ph still dead and bathing in rice!
Had a scan yesterday, not ready yet. Another scan Monday, pretty sure epu will be Wed. Hope the little follies are right by then and bigger ones not over done.
Arrested embies really means slow for the day. Last cycle on day 5 we got the news the embies were still 8 cell, so not gd. Seems to be a sperm activation issue. Up to d3 embies development is pretty much all egg, then between d3 and d5 embies undergo major changes to become blast, we just haven't got there
So its a risk of happening again. Most likely because dh sperm is really bad. It's a bit sh*t really and weighs heavily on me, dh is the eternal optimist though. So we really need a blast to happen, or we r headed for donor I think. Cause unlike some on here, I'm getting old!!
Good vibes everyone! I'm off to get a massage! Xxoo
I'm out, AF arrived in full force!
Numb, shattered, sick- I can't even cry!
FIRST CYCLE FEB/MAR 2012
IVF ICSI ANTAGONIST
BFP - but sadly miscarried @ 6 weeks.....
so sorry MARTTC... Aren't you due to test on Sunday?? Hoping its not really the witch - I had a bleed on Tuesday and thought the worst... its not AF!! Even so they say you can still get AF and be BFP - hoping thats the case for you.... xox
MARTTC - so sorry, take good care of yourself and do whatever can possibly help you feel better.
We're having a day 3 transfer (if we have any embies come Monday), so I won't even know if they progress from day 3 or not.
I'm really sorry to hear that MARTTC!!!
I actually feel like I belong on here now... It's all finally happening! We've been trying for 4.5 years, had 12 miscarriages at least (ones that made it past 4 weeks) and finally were diagnosed with my husbabd having balanced translocation.
Nurse just rang following my EPU yesterday, said they actually harvested 11 eggs but only 8 of them were suitable for fertilization. Of these 5 have fertilized!!!! Now they just have to make it to Monday to be biopsied and sent to Melbourne for genetic testing!!!
