    Funny you say that Milly, my AF is horrid too. Is that normal after IVF? I guess it makes sense since the meds are supposed to increase the lining. It's just so painful and heavy - yuck!

    Leash... hope your transfer went well. I was thinking of you. What were your final numbers?

    AFM... Yes, I had my transfer this morning. I think the FS was hoping for a bit of a better result for Day 5 - he said they hadn't progressed that much, and though one of the 8 cells has become an "early blast", it didn't look like that any of the others would make it to freezing. Bit disappointing, as I was hoping the other 8 cell one would be good. But at least I had one to transfer. I then asked him, what exactly were the others at today, but he didn't seem to know exactly, and just seemed to want to get on with this one. Where are those scientists when you want one - they know all the numbers!! So I re-phrased, and asked "did they other ones stop growing?", to which he said, "no, they all moved on, but not greatly." I know none of them will be any good, but I am just curious to know that they didn't stop at Day 3, as it's happened in the past. Then as I've got my legs in the air, the scientist appears - not really the right time to be having a discussion!! Hehe. Afterwards, she said she will call tomorrow, to say if there was any to freeze, so I've written myself a post-it to ask her then.

    Anyhow, I've had three transfers in total now from 5 cycles, and I thought I'd share the differences with you:
    - 1st - told to have an empty bladder, just like a pap smear, over and done and out
    - 2nd - told to have an empty bladder, the internal instrument thing hurt massively, so much that I almost fainted on the bed, I was in absolute agony and told the FS so, but he didn't seem worried, once it was out of me, the pain straight away went, I'm sure he had it in wrong, or at the least had pinched some bit of skin
    - 3rd (today) - same FS as 2nd transfer, but told to have a full bladder, just like a pap smear, no pain, but it took two goes, he gives the syringe thing (with the embryo) back to the scientist and she goes back to her room, he gets out the ultrasound, and then gets me, yes me, to hold the ultrasound probe on my tummy, scientist does the checking of name and DOB again, and comes back again. No problem, in it goes, and FS says, "can you see that blob, that's where it is?" Lol. All good. Well the 2WW has begun :-))

    ET complete, 2 frosties maybe but will have to wait till tomorrow to know more. Blood test for BFP is next Friday. The ivf doctor was very happy with everything. And it's back to work for me next Monday. I was thinking of you both MCG Bertie and wishnhope. I am feeling very good about this. 😄

    Congrats MGC Bertie & Wishnhope on being PUPO! Glad to hear your ETs went well today. Leash - hope your ET went well today too

    MGC - fingers crossed the embryologist calls with good news tomorrow about the other embies and that you have some to freeze. Anyways its great you transfered a 5 day embie as you initially hoped to.
    Nurses have always told me to drink a few glasses of water an hour or so beforehand so I have a relatively full bladder for ET.

    I'm not sure Cue but it's happened to me for the last 2 cycles. Yucko exactly. I'm really looking forward to a natural FET after a month off.
    MGC, Wishnhope, Leash - congratulations on being PUPO!! Three lots of heading your way. Keep us updated! MGC - sounds like a unique experience today!
