I went in for blood and scan today, had 7 follicles at about 14 mm, so no EPU for me on Friday. Day 11 of jabs, and now i have to go up to 175 of the gonal. Back on Friday, hoping like anything the follicles grow and we can do EPU on Monday. Was in the worst mood at work all day, snapped at a couple of ppl, and then was on the verge of tears. Dont know if it was the drugs or the frustration that EPU isn't on Friday. Anyway over it now, tomorrows a new day.
Melissa - I know a lady formerly of this forum who is UTD after only getting 3 eggs. It is definitely quality over quantity!
Thanks for that sariel I really need to hear these great stories xx
sariele, how are you? Any more thoughts re singe or double transfer? I've never been in a position to choose because at Genea they almost always just do one and I was happy to be led by them as they are the experts. It's a personal decision but if it was me and I had good eggs and lots of time, I'd only do one so that I was giving each one the best chance I could.
Qloulou, hope your wee embryos stay strong.
tessagirl & bed lover,yay for being cycle buddies!
bindy, sounds like great levels, hope all confirmed for you on Friday
maggieme, welcome and all the best.
familyinthemaking, good luck.
littlesunflowers, good luck tomorrow.
Cholita, congratulations - a wee miracle!
castle, sorry to hear about the flood, good luck with everything.
4furbabies, hope your wee embryo is a sticky.
makiely I know you've probably heard this a hundred times but it really is all about quality not quantity. When I did my stim cycle I had 14 mature follicles so was expecting a high number of eggs. They only got six so I was gutted. They told me they were all top quality but I was so down and just focused on the number - an easier thing to grasp I suppose. Of those six, we had five fertilise, four make it to day three, two make it to day five blasto - one transferred and one to freeze. The one transferred is our beautiful DD. So don't give up hope, it can and does happen.
I'm apparently very close to ovulating so once that happens we will know when the transfer will be. Clinic says could be Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday but I'm only CD13 and normally have a 30ish day cycle so I would guess Wednesday or even Thursday.
I only got 7, 5 mature but was so lucky that two fertilized and were of great quality and were hatching, one transferred and one frozen, I spent those 5 days before transfer stressing so much praying they would last so i wouldn't get zero IVF is so streassul.always stressing and worrying.I hope you get some good embies to get your little bubba.
Well saw the FS and have decided to keep going even though I only have 2 follicles progressing at the moment, one other may come up who knows. I have heaps of little ones but now big enough. So epu Monday. Hoping and praying for the best.
Do many BFP in the thread, it's great. My heart goes out to the ones that have not got one yet and the ones that have had to cancel or wait a cycle. It's heart breaking.
Hoping to see more BFPs from people take care everyone.
So EPU today, on our way to the hospital now. Little bit nervous really need some good quality eggs this time round.
Good luck to everyone else who has just started, mid way or on the TWW.
Big congratulations to everyone who has got a BFP, fingers crossed this is the one and that little Emby goes on the be an amazing bubba.
Talk to you allow the other side of my anesthetic assisted nap.
