    Twiglets, I know what you mean re. wishing your life away! I wish December would be over and done with! I am going a little crazy But i have been reading lots, which has been helping. This morning I've been reading a book about a lady who was told her baby was 'not compatible with life' whilst she was still pregnant. She decided to continue the pregnancy and prayed for a miracle, the baby only survived two hours. Its a beautifully, heart breaking book. I know its not the same as my situation, but I find reading about what others have been through really helpful.

    MrsErin R sounds like we have similar protocols. I am doing a short cycle with a low dose so I don't overstimulate too. Was that enough eggs to go ahead? We have been told if they don't get more than 3 they probably will cancel the cycle. So I am excited to see that you got more than 3!

    We have our nurses appointment tomorrow! So excited for it.. Means that it is getting really close!

    PS everyone- we are almost half way through December!!

    Default January / February IVF cycle buddies: Lucky 2013!

    Hi everyone!

    So I had my nurses appointment yesterday and everything went as expected, except I found out that in our treatment plan our FS recommended we do ICSI based on DH's last SA. I didn't realise that DH's sample wasn't good enough to go through regular IVF so I'm feeling a little bummed at the moment

    I know I should be more positive but I just have this feeling it won't happen for us first time around..

    Beanie87, of our 5 mature eggs, 4 fertilised and 3 made it to blast. The best one was transferred, and sadly the others deteriorated and weren't suitable for freezing.

    So yes, i think you can go ahead with just a few eggs retrieved. I guess your FS will advise you!? They may recommend going for a 3 day transfer if there aren't many.

    I naively thought that I would get loads of eggs due to my high AMH! I guess that they need to tweak the mess to balance getting good eggs against the risk of ohss. I'm hoping to get more next time around though. I'm seeing FS on Monday so I'll let you know the verdict!

    Well af arrived today gosh they are all over the shop last month they arrived the 16th so hoping for around the same date next month to start straight on to injections but knowing my luck next month they will be late,! I'm going insane at the moment really stressed with work and a bit down but on leave from next week so hopefully all will go to plan. I am excited to get started very shortly but also a bit scared too as it's getting closer does anyone else feel this way?!

    Well it's all happening in bedlover land! FS appt yesterday, AF arrives today! So FET will be end Jan!!

    VMuchInLove - don't worry about ICSI vs anything else, at this point it is all about the end result and if ICSI gets you there quicker that is all that matters.

    littlesunflower... I noticed that you wrote that you're having an additional surgeon on the day of EPU. Is that because of DH's TESE procedure? Was wondering if your DH is having micro-dissection as well as TESE, and who with? We're looking at going with either Dr Lok or Dr Golovosky in Feb/Mar, so are trying to get as much info as possible?

    We are having a microdissection, with a urologist in Brisbane. We had an aspiration in June and they diagnosed sperm maturational arrest with no known cause, which basically gives us no chance of finding anything. I tell DH he is one-of-a-kind. We're fully expecting to be going with the donor; it will be a lovely surprise if we don't have to, but unlikely.

    Hi Qloulou

    I have a low AMH (6 last IVF cycle) and my FS doubled my Gonal-F dose on day 4 of injections. I never got to EPU but I had only 4 follicles on the scan. FS was ready to go ahead with that (we didn't due to MFI), but this time I'll be on a dose of 300 from day 1. Which will hopefully be the right balance!

    Hi Little flowers

    My AMH is now 3.2
    It was 4.2 just before I turned 30. So time is not on our side.
    Anyway I'm trying to stay positive and I'm happy we are going to do ivf!
    We are aiming for quality not quantity! One good one is all we need!
    I'm just not expecting to get loads of follicles on our first try but I guess we will see how we go. I have a feeling they will have to up my dose. Good luck with your next cycle!
