Off topic, but anyone else loving the tennis?
Sorry for so many questions straight up, first timer!! For those on gonal f, how many days of injections did you hv before epu? I'm on day 4, first scan Wednesday.
Hi all, this thread is moving far too fast, but great to hear about all your stories, definitely helps in making my wait go faster :-)
Very exciting to hear that we may have 3 BFP's for MABR, Vetttc and Betty. Congratulations girls, hope your hcg levels keep on rising :-) All this positive news and so far no BFN's, yey maybe this is our lucky month, wishing every one of us a great cycle with lots more BFP's :-)
Since I probably won't be on here for another week, very best wishes to Leala, Clucky and Jilapril for your EPU's this week. Hope you all get lots of good little eggs and more importantly lots of strong little embies all ready to be transferred :-)
Beanie, yey for getting 9 little fertilised embies, that's fantastic :-) Your EPU sounds quite different to what I've experienced, think I must have been sedated differently cause I am usually knocked out completely and don't remember a thing till the Dr comes around to tell me how many eggs. Lucky you that you had no trouble with the drip, they never seem to be able to get it into me and usually have to stab two or three times...ouch! Hope the little wait till your transfer goes super quick :-)
Makiely, welcome :-) Looking forward to hearing how everything goes for you. How lovely that you have been able to find a surrogate and a fs who allows this...not that we've ever had to try surrogacy but I recall that it isn't allowed in some states?? Such a blessing :-) Very best wishes for a great (and hopefully quick) journey :-)
Beatrix sorry to hear your news about your father-in-law, cancer is such an awful disease :-( Hugs to you and your family.
Bindy don't lose hope. We are so very fortunate to have a beautiful 3 year old dd who was an ivf icsi baby. During that cycle (which happened to be our first ever) we had 8 eggs collected, 6 fertilised, and of that our beautiful dd was the only survivor! Proof that it only takes one! Our dd is such a vibrant and strong willed little girl and we put this down to the fight that she had to go through right from the start. Your little embie is strong, it's made it this far, it's a fighter...and that's all you need to get your precious little baby :-) As for transfer day I think our dd was a day 3. Our clinic also says that embies grow better in you rather than in a petrie dish but if we have any suitable for freezing they usually grow them on to day 5, if they can make it that far you know they are really strong then :-) Oh and I feel for you with all the travelling. We live an hour out of Canberra so have a lot of travel to and from our clinic (Canberra fertility clinic), not quite as far as you though. Hope you have the same success that we had with our dd :-)
Afm I have absolutely no news! Taking Progynova pills and have bt and us on wed to hopefully see when our transfer may be :-)
Baby dust to you all :-)
Sorry I really should write on here more than once a week, my post is huge!!
Sent from my GT-I9100T using BubHub
This is my second stim cycle... Between 10 & 13 days but really depends on the person & how you are responding
Have been googling like crazy and thought it might be time to talk to people in the same boat! Brief history of us - we found out that my husband could not have children, completely infertile around 2 years ago, and now we have finally started out stims!We are using an anonymous donor. I am currently on day 3 of my Progesterone (200) evening injections, and have to say I have had pretty much zero side effects (so far)... I will be starting my 0.5ml orgalutran on Monday morning, and maybe start feeling something by then... sounds silly cause i don't want side effects but it feels like nothing is happening!!! Hope everyone is feeling good!!! hope I don't jinx myself haha.
My doctor is Dr luk rombauts at monash IVF, anyone else there??
