Essentially it is to get my body used to this similar DNa, kinda like a vaccine so my body doesn't go into overdrive and kill the embie.

    I'm also going to be on a drug called neupogen to help with implantation, prednisolone, intralipids and Antibiotics. On BFP I will have a stronger dose of IVIG to help keep the NK cells at bay.

    I hear you on losing your mojo. It has been a long 2.5yrs of IVF for me and this will be my 9th stim. Very over it! I had a bt yesterday (after 5 days of injections) and e2 only 173 so it's going to be a long stim for me too. Last time it was 16 days of injections, I think we might hit 18 this time😩

    Good luck, we are both long overdue our BFP's 😘
    Wow I don't even know all those protocols. I haven't gone down the path of anything different so far with mine. Fling a natural FET cycle now. Will have pessaries from Thursday night. And FET scheduled on sat. Fingers crossed.

    Yes surely it's our time soon

    Thanks @Chiefsgirl and good luck for your epu on Monday. Did some BH stalking and saw you wrote about your epu on Monday. Long cycle of jabbing. Hoping you get quite a few nice mature eggs x

    Thanks @Minib, pity I've got a head cold, but oh well, time to get them out, hopefully it won't matter and they'll go ahead with it.

    Best of luck for tomorrow Chiefsgirl, will be thinking of you! Fingers crossed for lots of eggies for you! I hope you get plenty of rest after EPU so you can recover from your cold also!!

    Congrats on being PUPO Minib, I hope you have lots to keep yourself distracted with. I don't know if you're interested in any ideas but I ate a handful of Brazil nuts (about 6) each day during the 2ww and kept eating them once I got my bfp until I ran out of them. I think I read on the first page of this thread that they can help! Good luck!

    Wow Chiefsgirl!! 8 is awesome and what fantastic news that they are all mature eggs! Such a great result! Fingers crossed for tomorrow for you

    So what happens next- I think I remember you saying that you are getting the embies tested this time and you have some banked up from previous cycles? Do you get to transfer this cycle? I bet you can't wait to get going!!
