@TheTimeHasCome I have 4 embies on ice from 3 stims. 2x 6 cell one crappy 5 cell and 1x8 cell from my last cycle. I'm not really holding out any hope on any if them except the 8 cell which was grade a. This will be the last stim before pgd I don't want to spend any more $$ on potential crappy eggs!
Bel... congrats on that wonderful news. How lovely to have her here with you. Enjoy every moment.
AFM.... just a quick note, to say that it's all good news :-) The Harmony results from the US came back as low for all three trisomies. I asked if there was a percentage with that, and the secretary said 0.01%, and then said that that equates to 1:10,000 chance. I way like those odds better than last weeks Australian ones of 1:20 risk!! I'm rather relieved, but strangely still not over-the-moon. I feel like I should be, but I just aren't. Also, on the way home I realised that I never asked the sex, but I guess I was just more concerned about the health, and can always find the sex out another time.
Hi Bertie, so pleased to hear your harmony results are low risk. Hope the pregnancy has been going smoothly xx

Thanks Simpson! Glad to hear everyone is going well 😊
Hey Sydney ladies. I'm cycling again with WFC and doing an FET this month if all goes well. Hoping that we actually get to transfer stage, as the last few cycles have all failed/been cancelled. Nice to see some familiar faces & happy updates.
Well, I thought I was going to be coming in here with really exciting news.
We have done 2 FETs since December.
Middle of this month we got a BFP!
But, being the stress heads we are dp was having bi-weekly blood tests to monitor as the BHCG levels were a little low at the start.
By Monday last week the clinic was confident we were UTD.
So dp had a blood test on Thursday. And her levels had dropped. Back to what they were the previous Thursday.
Repeat bloods yesterday confirmed it. BHCG down to 50. Miscarriage imminent.
So now we wait for the inevitable miscarriage, while we take stock of where we are in life and our journey to motherhood.
Dp has 3 frosties and I have 2 of hers as well. But we don't know how much longer we can keep on This path, both emotionally, physically and financially. So far we have used 43 embryos and are out of pocket over $50K.
We have started discussing things like adopting or permanent foster. But have decided not to make any decisions about anything for the next month.
I seem to recall a lady on BubHub, who after a long IVF journey decided to adopt/foster a sibling group. Not sure if that was this thread or another one though.
If it is this one, can anyone remember who she was? TIA.
@bel2466 Wow! Congrats on your baby girl!! So wonderful to hear another happy update. I hope you're enjoying motherhood and adjusting to the night shift.
@catemer I just cannot believe that you are losing another precious bub . So many hugs . To have nothing to show from 43 embies and all that $$ is beyond unfair. All your perseverance and fortitude should have paid off long ago. I hope that you have a sticky bub amongst your remaining frosties.
The lady who fostered was on this thread.
@wishing4 if you're able to pop in it would be lovely to hear from you.
@mrsjaguar best of luck for your FET, I hope this is the winning cycle for you
@Chiefsgirl I too hope you are pleasantly surprised and get more normals than you're expecting. Good luck with the final stim and then the PGD testing.
@MGC Bertie pheeewww!! SO relieved your results were all low risk. How are you feeling and have you been telling everybody? Any sign of a bump yet?
