    Tiredness is a good thing....it is a symptom but at the moment, it's probably the drugs causing you that. But let's hope it continues!!!
    Thanks!! I often don't think of these questions when I have my FS around.

    And bedlover I'm not sure what you should do...?? I've never had experience being that far into the tww. You have some convincing arguments for both sides. Good luck xxx

    At my transfer on Sunday as soon as I arrived, the embryologist said he had only 1 good embryo to transfer back, an early blastocyst. He said however, that it was only an early blastocyst because he had checked so early in the morning and he was quite happy with the look of it. He also had another early blastocyst but was not happy with it and will not freeze it.

    Then I prep up and lie in the chair, they ask your name etc. The dr does her thing, prep me up for the transfer, we're all ready and he (embryologist) does the name check again. He then zooms in on the embryo, I watch intently on the tv for the first glimpse of my embryo...and I hear him yelling out from the other room that it has now moved on beautifully!!! I was so hopeful then!!! Fingers crossed to all of us!
    Hi Frenchy,
    Yes! it was very exciting and amazing to hear! I hope its a good sign.
    Good to see it happened to you too!

    No symptoms of anything yet still too early, except have had an awful headache since 3am this morning! could just be the progynova or progesterone, but have been on those for a while already so could just be a simple crappy headache!

    KLM how many days past 3 day transfer are you now?? When's the big day?

    Hi orchids- sorry to hear ur FET didn't work out. It sucks that you got that BFP and then find out its a chem pregnancy...so unfair. But what can we do but soldier on? We really are made of strong stuff....going through infertility and our quest to be blessed with children. Sometimes it's hard, but I find that the only way I could move forward was to PLAN for a way that I could have children. The most heartbreaking thing for me to go through was last October. I just had an ectopic pregnancy (natural OMG!) and my left tube was taken out at the end of August and we found out we were pregnant again in Sept! Then at our 5 week scan, they found the baby in right tube...yep another ectopic. I was devastated....that's not the end of it. They decided to give me methotrexate to "remove" the baby. At 7 weeks, at a scan to see how it was going, we saw the foetal pole. I was shocked and numb! This was not fair, the baby had kept on growing! They did the drugs again.,...and it wasn't until dec that my periods returned and I lost the baby naturally. I felt like the whole world crashed on me, but I moved on and planned for IVF.

    So the moral of ALL that was, go on you all ladies, this is a tough road and we will fall, but we're made out of strong stuff because we'll keep on going!!!

    Tear tear xxxx

I have such conservative friends and even more conservative work colleagues, so I'm trying to come up with a sentence that says it all in one go, before they can say the "that's great". But not worrying too much about that, as I have yet to get a BFP, let alone make it to 12 weeks stage!!

    7liha.... yes, drink lots of water, keep the Panadol up and do literally rest.
    I know bizarre right! It's the same friend (who is really lovely and a relentless optimist) that said "That's awesome!" when I said we were at the stage of having to consider egg donation, and of course it is awesome that there are such generous women who will go through this to help another girl out, but no-one WANTS to give up on having a child that is the bio product of your perfect man, so it's not reall 'awesome'. It's taken me a while but I've sorted out which friends can provide positive support, and which friends despite their lovely sweet intentions- are kryptonite on this stuff!
    That donor conversation is hard - I've thought about it too, people can have such funny ideas on it. If we get a donor egg, we'll tell close friends and family, because we'll tell the little one from the beginning so he/she will spill the beans if we don't ... but I won't tell work, as far as they are concerned I will have gone to Greece for my 40th birthday present and come home UTD. I like Bedlover's suggestion - I'm gonna do it that way! That is, if this cycle doesn't deliver the goods, only one more sleep till my scan and BT - what's the bet they say ... "hmmm there some there but they're really small, we'll give it a few more days" and then I'll be on tenterhooks for even longer! Fingers crossed I've got a couple of eggs growing, I'm feeling twinges, but I get those all the time ...

    Orchids and Jodes- thank you for your kind words....but I think we ALL inspire hope within each other, and we ALL inspire each other to keep on going. Why else do we come on these forums looking for other people's stories and seeking support and help. Because if you think about it, no one KNOWS what exactly we're going through, the drugs, the confusion, trying to make sure you jab yourself with everything you're suppose to, making sure that you do at the right times, freaking out if something small goes wrong, worrying that you didn't do enough.....that's why I try to read what others are going through because it helps me go on. I'm silently trying to see if they are doing the same things as me, and if they do, did they get a BFP? I hope that everyone gets their BFP and when they don't, I feel horrible. I then think about what they are going through, dealing with a BFN.

    With my story, I hope that someone else reading it may find as much support as what THEY write and their stories support me through this process.

    Thank you all for bearing yourselves and your fears. I'm sure we all feel them at one time or another, and we understand and draw strength from each other...
