Thanks guys or all your posts re MIL issues! It's going to take DH some time to see its not all in my head so I just need to keep letting him know how I feel. As we girls know a lot of stuff that happens we feel it instinctively so sometimes examples aren't very concrete because they come from our gut. I am confident my DH will support me more when he can see it better. I take some comfort in knowing my MIL has struggled with our relationship because it is the first time another woman has actually truly had her son!
Sorry for the selfish post, will go back and do personals to catch up. I had my appt with FS at Genea today. It was over Skype. So good to not have to travel and have the appt at home! FS was thoroughly realistic about my age but also believes MIVF haven't tried enough different options. She wants me on 4 different supplements before we start stim. I can only remember 2 of them which were Melatonin and L'arginine (forgive spelling). My first and only stim I was on 375 gonal f and got 17 eggs. She felt that was way too high and MIVF should have trialled me lower and got less eggs. They had me on that amount because my FS said due to my age there was no chance of me getting a lot of eggs or overstimming. She said obviously I proved them wrong! Discussed the 2 day transfer compared to Blast. She said for every batch of eggs collected, obviously the quality is the same. The difference with blast is at least you know the transferred one is progressing so you're not paying money to transfer one's which have potentially stopped growing after 2 days and you don't know it. This is a much bigger issue with age, the 2 days have good success rates with younger women.
She said we can do everything in Melb just go up for EPU for a day and either stay or fly back up for transfer. Their embryo culture which so much has been written about lately has increased chances by 26% regardless of age. Of course this means if you only had a 1% chance to begin with it only goes up to a 27% chance. Sounds fine to me!
