    Ann17... big congratulations. That is a clear winning case for using donor eggs - good work to your niece!! I asked my FS on his opinion for trying more with my eggs after this cycle or going to my sister's, and though I should have been prepared he said "there's a lot going for using your sister's eggs." I started to cry (even though I should have expected it), but I think I sort of needed to hear a specialist say, "it's time to move on." so all good. You must be over-the-moon :-))

    Butterfly....My thyroid was "hyper" (overactive) until I had the radioactive treatment to knock it out, then it became "hypo" (underactive), so I also take Thyroxine - 150 Mondays and 100 every other day. Until levels are stable BTs are vital. Some serious side effects if I don't take the meds - Grave's Disease is classed as "life threatening", so dying is pretty serious!! More common symptoms are heart pulpitations, shaking and swollen limbs. Yeah, I'll just take the pills everyday!!

    I have had so many BTs in the past 18 months, that I think I've possibly lost track of what I've had and what I haven't had. I have been tested for some immune things, but others not, hence why demanding them now. I asked my FS on Monday about a endo scratch and he said definitely I should have this next time (but too late to do one now as I was starting jabs straight away).

    I asked my FS ages ago about transferring 2 and he said that it would have risks with my thyroid (but really, how can taking more pills be any more complicated that all these jabs!). I asked him again this Monday about transferring 2 and he said that there are lower take home baby rates with 1 baby from a double transfer, than with 1 baby from a single transfer.

    I have had three transfers out of my five cycles. 1st yes, 2nd no, 3rd yes, 4th no, 5th yes and this is my 6th so I'm a little anxious about it. Hoping to break the pattern that is emerging.

    Thanks for all your knowledge.

    Aawwww.... Tiny thanks yes it's always nice to share stories with dh I do the same. Except sometimes I wld make him nervous !!

    Butterfly- how you going ? Yep. You are so right when I was freaking out not feeling anything and you said you didn't feel much either. I still dont really except on and off cramps, yest I was 11dp or 16 dpo and for couple of different times for a few secs felt light nausea. Do you know what was your beta at 11dp? Mines 595. Ok sorry tmi but what's with the gas??

    Bertie - I know how you feel have your good cry, you need to. But after that pick yourself and move forward, because once that bean implants its yours and you don't feel any different. In fact you will be over joyed. For me I haven't been able to get this far on my own but that doesn't mean I don't believe I don't have a good egg In me, just that how many cycles was I willing to keep on trying and I think 5years is a long time. I have seen many ladies come and go through the threads, most happily graduated and i waited and waited for my turn, disappointment after disappointment. I just wanted my bfp. I know I have a long way to go and so many hurdles to jump but my donor cycle has at least given me that opportunity. As you know I have tried many things like luveris, saizen, menpour, dhea, royal jelly and nothing. Take care and move forward hun, you will get there, you have to, we all have to.

    To all.

    Thanks Bertie, yes you'd better keep taking those pills ! I'm quite happy with them as they don't seem to have side effects and nor should they being a natural hormone thank goodness.


    Your 'pattern' might just be bad luck and false starts.... Sometimes I think this ivf thing is a craps shoot... Just got to do all we can to improve those odds I guess. Hopefully this cycle will work and you won't need your sisters eggs...


    Interesting re your Fs comments. In my case my FS rationale was that much of the info we have about ivf especially re single vs double embryo transfer contain data from mainly women <40. Women over 40 tend to only have one embryo take in this situation so he thinks when you allow for the decreased twinning rate, the numbers show a benefit for the 'healthy take home baby rate' when transferring 2. That's why he changed to double when I hit 40 this year. I thought long and hard because of the cut in my uterus from the fibroid and potential for uterine rupture, but we went with that anyway.


    Either way for me it's too late now My 7wk scan is next wk so I'm hoping for a healthy something, anything. Also, counterintuitively, the rates of complications in over 40 for twins is apparently less. That really surprises me. Unfortunately in my case I don't think it would hold true as I think my horrible blood pressure may bite me in the bottom at some point... My last reading was 150 .


    MGC hope your holiday is fabulous and for everyone else cycling hope you have a wonderful day

    Ann - re gas - all I can say is tell DH to batten down the hatches. It was a 12 gun salute and exotic frog chorus every morning for about a week post BFP. And lots of low grade cramps as ur uterus asks 'hmmm what's going on here I feel like I should be doing something' ?.... Lots of bloating early on, i suspect it was all wind. Did you put back 1 or 2? My first hcg was 90 and was done same day as yours. If you google hcg calculator you can check the doubling time is ok between your first and second level when you have it. The normal range is wide..... So the absolute isolated value is not that meaningful except when considered in relation to other readings. I have had bits and pieces of nausea but nothing to write home about. If not for having grown out of all bras and wearing fat pants I really would not have many symptoms.

    Ann a big congratulations on your BFP. I think you can be safe in knowing that you have a decreased risk of miscarriage with the younger eggs now.
    I had 2 put back and my 16dpo was 471. I have since found out that 2 implanted and one has become a 'vanishing twin'. Ann you may have 2 in there as well.

    My FS warned me several times - he isn't big on double txs, dh said one and the scientist holding the tube staring at my fs, dh and me, saying its 24 yr old eggs.....my poor fs said we have gone through this many times, showed her all the stats...... And dh was like -she is adamant and there's no changing that..... My legs are up in the stirrups - and iam like with my luck.......two in pls! But QFG had now changed the rules and as of Sept only 1 x embryo tx I am not sure (forgot ) I think under 37yr. Iam nervous now, very nervous! I just want a healthy and safe pregnancy, twins or singleton.
