This thread moves way too fast... Bindy - So sorry to hear. That happened to us our first two cycles, and I was devastated both times. And my stupid old clinic insisted on putting them back in THE NEXT DAY after EPU, which was incredibly dumb because I never even got to know whether they made it to Day 3, let alone Day 5. Then we moved onto donor sperm at the new clinic and so I was expecting much better fertilisation, but no, we still only ended up with two fertilised! And they were very dodgy embies as well, but I still managed to get implantation from the one transferred, AND the other one ended up frozen. So you just never know what will happen. Fingers crossed your little emby is a fighter.
I'm at Monash with Lynn Burmiester... I did my research & wanted to go with your guy or Lynn, we got in with Lynn & I was too impatient to wait for Luk.... I hear great things about him & I know someone who used him & loves him - she has twin girls
I don't get massive side affects either, just feel my ovaries going crazy
Thankyou girls for all of your support, I love this thread. I am trying to keep positive and saying lots of little prayers for our embie I am busting to hear how the embie is tomorrow. This tww will be torture!lol hearing your stories of success is definitely helping, Thankyou
We decided to make a week of it and we are on holidays with our furry baby (choc lab) at the beach I really have been fine since EPU except for a dull ache where my left kidney would be on my back. Never had this before and taking panadol and heat packs since. No UTI symptoms. We are having a day 3 tf so will ask then
Thinking of you all and hoping that those Bhcg keep rising girls xx
So I have officially become a horrible person. Today a cat at work hissed at me and scratched me and drew blood as i was feeding her and I yelled at her and hissed back and lost the plot ... Poor cat was prob just scared but I have no empathy in me this 2ww is driving me so crazy plus today I did a poas hpt and got a bfn it's 8dp5dt today and really should be starting to show up... Think it's going to be another bfn for me
Girls, Can I ask a question..
When they thaw an embryo and then grow it- can they refreeze it?? I am pretty sure the scientist said they would thaw 4 in march for us. But obviously they wont put 4 in and i know they won't all necessarily make it- but what happens if 2 or 3 do? What happens to them?
Be kind to yourself vetttc! You are in no way a horrible person I'm sure. The 2ww is a constant series of battles to keep your cool. Can't win them all, and you're doing a brilliant job if you can manage to win most. Really hope this one is just a slow hormone releaser.
No idea about the re-freezing of embryos sorry. I have actually been told both yes and no. Not helpful!

Aw Vetttc, that cat had it coming. The 2ww messes with your head big time and I can only imagine how you must be feeling for round 6. I too hope you've just got a slow starter in there!
Beanie I'm not sure -- I would assume yes? Because they often use frozen eggs/ sperm and then freeze embryos that result from them. I did think they would grow your embryos then freeze though, but there must be some reason they fertilised then froze! Maybe call your clinic and ask the reason just so it's not kicking around in your head til March!
VETTC so totally normal.. the cat will be ok! It is so hard all of this!! TWW are really tough. I am assuming much harder when its an IVF TWW.
Cats are full of attitude themselves, so I wouldn't worry about it. I am sure you know this though as I am guessing you work with animals
Thanks safam and betty. I might just call them, Betty. I am also wondering how they time ovulation exactly right with a 3day or 5day transfer. There are seriously so many qs in my head. Like why do they need to wait until ovulation- its not like the egg you ovulate is important, or do they wait til after that egg is gone'?
