HTML Code:[QUOTE=Milly888;7348960]Thanks Appy, that gives me a bit more hope. This process seems so unpredictable! Even when everything looks perfect (good eggs, fertilisation, good lining, levels, blast...) it still doesn't happen for some reason. It sounds like you're getting close to a BFP! I really hope this is your month. The last couple must have been really difficult ones. We're thinking about asking to put 2 embies back next time. My Dr has always been quite against the idea, but said if it doesn't work in the first couple of cycles she'll consider it.
Milly I am transferring two this time...My FS is not happy about it but he has signed the waiver to do it so we are going ahead with it. From everything I have read I have an understanding that transferring two increases the chances of twins..He said that triplets/ quads are rare but there is a small chance. My main theory is that I have heard that if you transfer two a lot of ladies end up with one healthy baby therefore one implants and one does not. After my last cycle being so close and one almost implanting I am sure if I had of transferred two we might have just got there. FS told me the opposite he said that we would have lost them both. I am scared of ending up with twins but not becasue I couldn't handle them it is more the very real possibility of having complications, but then I also know I am healthy (no issues) I am tall and solid so carrying two babies would be easier for me than if I was a tiny little thing and I have also considered my age 33 turning 34 well they say transfers of 2 are usually preferred for patients over 35 which I am not far off at all so in theory I tick all the boxes (almost). FS also mentioned to me why transfer two when we can transfer one then if that doesn't work, another one ect ect. My thoughts against that are well the heartbreak of BFN cycles, the cost of BFN cycles and also my age once again these cycles take time, alot of time and I am not going back wards in years.
Other things I have heard off that can help are baby asprin (100mg) it is meant to assist wiith implantation. FS did not reccomend it he said that my clinic prefers not to use additional medications unless absolutely necessary. An awesome DR in Brisbane who gets great success rates all the time uses it on all his patients.
I also heard of a herbal supplement called Bromelain - it is made primarily from pineapple core...Perhaps an old wives tale but some women say that eating pineapple core in the 2ww has resulted in a BFP . These supplements will provide the benefits of the pineapple core without actually having to eat it. My only problem with the bromelain is I can't actually find it in any chemists so may have to try a health food shop.
Milly I hope that helped you some what transferring two is a very personal choice you need to weigh up the pro's against the cons. It is your decision though and not the FS' s decision.
Orchids so sorry hun
