@emski I've just been stalking the 'fertility friends' thread about serum in Greece and they have had a dreadful run of bfns there which is a little unnerving ....
Butterfly.... your DH sounds just like mine - he's always optimistic, and is always cheering me up whenever I break down crying (which since the three years we've been married, seems to be every couple of days, thanks to IVF!!) He's happy to try and plan all sorts to have a baby - the only thing he won't let me do is steal one!! (which during a few hysterical crying episodes has been the only option I can think of!!)
Good luck with whichever way you go
Egg pickup went very well for us today. 16 mature eggs from our wonderful donor. Hopefully getting jiggy as I type this. Should hear about fert rates tomorrow.
16 eggs mrs Erin - wow, off to a great start there!!! Woohoo!
@bertie yes I hear ya on the baby stealing vibe - I have to handle babies extensively at work - sometimes I think the parents take a good long look at me as I squeeze them and play peekaboo just a little too long
thats part of what makes me accept donor eggs as an option - Every baby is so beautiful. I always wanted at least 3!
Will do personals later; in a bit of pain. All done;5 eggs & best news is DH's sperm defrosted so no surgery for him. Feeling hopeful; what else can one feel? Xx
Woo Hoo ertgirl! Good result and good news on the sperm too.
Wow this is a roller coaster. I'm afraid it's not great news; they were only able to inject one egg. Will find out if it fertilises tomorrow. Can't stop crying, I guess the pain & the hormones don't help.
ertgirl oh no!!! Far out! I really feel for you because that's just awful news to get after being so up... I really hope your one is the one!
