@MisserinR wow, what a roller coaster, yes I remember you saying your donor had hesitated. Thank goodness you found another donor that fits in with all your dates!
Ann... wow only 1 and a bit weeks to go... is that right? How exciting!!
Mrs Erin.... oh, I hadn't heard that end part of your story - how very trying, but s good that you've managed to tee up a different donor to fit into your dates at such short notice. It's so good that the clinics there seem to bend over backwards to help like that. Fingers crossed for you xx
AFM... fertilisation overnight was 8 out of the 9 mature eggs!!! We are all so over-the-moon about such great numbers, except my Mum who's being a little sceptical about it all going so well so far. Mind you, she did say, "can you transfer 4, if 4 are good" hehe!! We never got numbers like this with my eggs, in fact we didn't get much more than that over 8 full stim cycles! I'm feeling rather excited about it all now. Of course a little worried that my body is going to let it all down, and so hope that the intrallipids and other meds for NKCs work their magic this time. Anyhow, there's nothing more I can do, so just have to wait it out. We'll find out on Mon (day 3) what the embryos are doing, and then look for transfer on Wed (day 5). Thanks everyone for thinking about me and all your good wishes.

Oh Bertie I got chills reading your fert rate. Hope the party in the petri dish continues as brilliantly as it's started
Great result Bertie! Congratulations!
EMrsErin, great that it's all fallen into place, hopefully you can get booking on Mon or Tues night!
Ann - I was thinking you must be close now?
Sent from my GT-P5110
Bertie - go u good thing! Wow what a great fert rate!
ann17 - hi! Best of luck for what is to come! X
mrserin - wow what a nail biting episode - honestly this journey has more twists than a bag of pretzels! I don't know what ur doing to keep sane but keep doing it, and all the very best for SA
*questions to the floor for all*
when stimming do you stay on vitamins, melatonin etc and quit EPU date or do you quit for Stims altogether?
Last question - TMI alert - has your hooha ever completely peeled from the crinone?
Thanks ladies !! X

Bertie, that is fantastic. Big congratulations from me! X
Grr, just realised the post I wrote earlier didn't "stick"
Vix, glad to hear you got to see your little bean's heart beating. Hope things have settled, looking forward to hearing more news of him/her.
Em, hope you and your little bean are going well.
Fingers, I'm so sorry to hear about DP's BFN. Such a hard road, hope you both can take some time out to recover.
Bertie, well done to your sis, what a great result grow little embies, grow!!
Bongley, how is your cycle going?
Butterfly, I completely understand about feeling crap on Elonva, I felt rotten during the cycle I used it too. That one was by far the most painful cycle I've done. I have kept up taking melatonin, vitamins, CoQ10 etc right through, but stop before transfer.
Chiefsgirl, how are you going?
GnH hello and welcome.
Luca, MrsMac, Chris, Micca and anyone else reading.
Butterfly.... that's interesting... no-one has ever said to stop taking the vitamins, so I've always continued with them right through. The only thing ever said to me was on cycle #8 at FF, Dr C said not to take Fish Oil while taking Aspirin, but no FS (incl Dr M) had said that before.
MGCBertie - Yay yay yay! I'm so excited for you right now I'm actually quivering and my extremities have no blood left in them cos I have them all crossed so hard. Really hoping this is your time!
MsErinR - wow that's stressful! Awesome that they've been able to get someone esle lined up so quick, but wow. And how awful for that donor! We don't wish this fertility battlefield on anyone hey. Still - I guess she knows now and without you, she might never have found out. Only two weeks till you fly - its getting so close! Good luck!
