Ok so... Firstly hi to all!
We are back on the roller coaster. DP had a scan on Wednesday. Still early days yet. Went to Acupuncture after scan and given DP was day 11 with almost no lining, the Acupuncturist has DP on some little black balls and a ground up seed to help nourish the blood and uterus.
Now when I first convinced DP to go to the acupuncturist I assured DP she wouldn't have to have anything crazy like "Elephant Toenail Tea". Well, this ground up seed is exactly what DP was worried about. So now the running joke at breakfast is "have you had your elephant toenail tea?". We crack ourselves up! Still stabbing away with the gonal. A blood and scan on Monday to check progress, but looking like transfer will be mid next week.
Now, as you all know we have had a grand total of 9 failed attempts (3x IUDI, 3x fresh and 3x frozen). We also have had 1 lot of embies where all 5 died during thaw.
So currently we have 3 embies on ice. Our plan is to have this as our last transfer this year, and if need be, pick up again next year.
So at DP's scan on Monday she discussed with the FS re thawing all 3 and transferring however many survive, even if that's all 3. Given DP's age and history FS has agreed!
We also were really worried that if we only thawed 2 for a transfer of 2 that there was the chance that at the next attempt where there was only 1 frosty it may not survive and that would be another wasted month.
So lookout world! DP will be PUPO with 3! Yay!
