Wow, so much happening! Promise I will update the roll call tonight!
I should have got AF yesterday or possibly today but she's not shown. The wait is hoooorrriible!
Joviolet - sorry to hear about your abcess and embryo issues. Fingers crossed some of the embryos pull through. I understand they can grow at different rates. How will the abcess be treated?
AFM - I'm still a bit confused about the news that my cumulus cells were too thick. I did some research and found that these are the cloud like cells that surround the zona. But I can't find any information at all about these cells impacting negatively on fertility. So I'm concerned my FS doesn't actually know why the sperm couldn't penetrate the eggs (could be sperm/egg/chemistry etc) ... I'll ask the embryologist next cycle and see what their take is. A bit disappointing to invest so much in a cycle and not be able to learn as much as possible from it.
Just told my mil about our IVF and can't stop crying. Blah.
Awww Milly that damn crying just happens now and again doesn't it! Hope it was because of the situation you're in and not anything negative with MIL?
Joviolet that is such a rough ride - sending good vibes to your embies. On day 5 we thought our last emby wouldn't make it, but by day 6 it became a blastocyst and was frozen, so good things can still happen.
Sariele 12 eggs is an exciting prospect!
Trying2StayPositive welcome to PUPO. Safam when is your BT?
Oh Ally, I totally feel your pain. I am out this month and am dealing with the potential of being on warfarin and therefore out for another 2 months if this next result isn't better. It really sucks balls that we can't have what we want - and almost had, but for me, once I knew I was def out I put IVF to one side and got on with eating smoked salmon, hot dogs, soft serve ice cream, drinking wine, picking up dog poo etc. I feel like such a pregnancy rebel!! I haven't smoked for 9 years but half considered it the other day (after a few wines) just cause I am feeling like being naughty!!!
If you and DH are really ok with it, put it to one side and enjoy life for a few months. Enjoy not being stressed about every twinge and pain, and remember that a few months is nothing in the bigger scheme of things. I am also trying to check BH less to distance myself from TTC and IVF a bit.
I want to be as physically and emotionally well as I can be for my baby and I am taking this time to concentrate on that (apart from drinking like a camel and eating like a pig!!😄)
Ps. If you do decide to try I wouldn't worry about travelling in early preg. I did many trips to Asia and US in the first trimester with DH and had no problems at all.
Wishing you loads of good luck and speak soon no doubt.
Roll call update for me: Started Synarel today, blood test on the 19th and hope to start FSH on the 20th! Synarel was no way near as bad as what I thought... thank goodness!
Good luck to those in the TWW...
JB we posted at the same time! Will fix yours up. Hope it goes smoothly for you and leads to a BFP!
