Precious40- I had no pregnancy symptoms at all with DS, and didn't really feel pregnant until I could feel him move, a long way in! So no symptoms doesn't = BFN. Hang in there!
Megsarama26: I cried after my first EPU- only got 5 eggs from at least 12 follies. Only 3 fertilised and only got 2 good embies. But you only need one good one! Hang in there. Pretty sure my AMH tested in single digits when we started our journey, so 24's not so bad. for good fertilisation rates for you. Nobody ever tells you you'll spend your whole IVF journey waiting for something. So frustrating. Hang in there!
@Precious40 losing my appetite (especially for meat) was one of my first symptoms, I didn't notice anything before the BT
@justonewish yeah, I have been going gangbusters trying to get fit and lose weight as I know it will be harder when preggers. I will try to lose my final few kilos if this doesn't work too. Speedy 4 days for you.
@frogpossum try not to give up hope, for you
@krys1224 I think because it only improves the rates of the ones that need it. I had ICSI done on my second cycle and the fertilisation rate didn't change so it didn't make sense to pay extra for it.
@seahorse I would have really liked an 8 cell at day 3! You have a good one there
@francesthecat you have had such horrible luck, you are so strong. Yep, they loaded me up on valium it was great. you really deserve a break after all that you have been through
@Rarah congrats on your 5 embies!
@megsarama I so understand, its a let down when you seem to have gone backwards (or even just stayed the same)
did I congratulate you @Willowglen? if not here it is! Congrats!!!
AFM:- Transfer today, there were two contenders left. I have a one on board. A very early blastocyst, (as usual) it had just started to compact. The doc was rough with the speculum > I was hoping for a better blasty or more left but its pretty par for the course for me and I'm not expecting the one left to freeze tomorrow. I'm feeling quite negative, I have since day3 but I am still hopeful at the same time. It might even be good that I don't get my hopes up too much.
Next phase:- POAS starting from Sat!
good luck everyone.
Had my call from the clinic and both our frosties have defrosted successfully- yay! They will transfer the best one tomorrow morning and re-freeze the other one in case this cycle doesn't work (we're planning on stopping at 2 kids).
@Precious40 keep ur hopes up u no they say things happen when u least expect it @justonewish have u POAS yet?? I'm day 2 of my TWW and already POAS twice lol I'm just testing to see when the trigger will be out its crazy it really does drive u insane @Willowglen congratulations wishing u an easy and healthy pregnancy @Rice it's so close 😊😊 FX for a BFP @megsarama that excellent I asked my FS yesterday y mine kinda dropped off I thought by have so many collected 19, I'd have heaps she said less is better it's quality over quantity @frogpossum good luck I hope this one sticks and who knows a change in routine may be what ur embryo needs @krys1224 I asked my FS same thing I swear she must hate appointments with me I ask so many questions normally have them on paper and she said she gets better fertilisation rates with normal IVF , ICSI is better if u have a fertilisation issue because it's overcomes that I was so worried mine wouldn't fertilise I asked for ICSI but she was adamant shell only do it if IVF was poor or didn't work @Seahorse1 welcome to the TWW and GOODLUCK @francesthecat good luck with EPU hope it goes smoothly @Rarah11 that's great news FX they all divide perfectly to day 5 @Bongley woo congrats welcome to the TWW haha must join the POAS addict forum @MrsBubbles good luck with ET tomoro

AFM clinc called and I have two frozen blasts , very happy 😊 we can't exactly afford to go straight into another round if this one doesn't work so it feels good to know they are there just in case so I POAS and triggers still there but I don't think it's out until Saturday anyone the the real fun begins
Me 26, DH 30
Lap done 9/13
4rounds of clomid with BFN
5th cycle of clomid chemical pregnancy
Started IVF jan 2014
1st IVF Jan 2014: @WFC antagonist cycle started, cancelled day 9 due to over stimulation, 60+ follicles.
2ND IVF March 2014: Next generation fertility ,Antagonist cycle
Have been feeling a bit sad the last couple of days. I POAS on Sunday (6dp5dt) and got a BFN . I'm starting to wonder if this will ever happen for us. Although, Willow your story gives me some hope (congratulations by the way. Very happy for you).
This is such a difficult process at times. The physical side of things has actually been easier than I was expecting but the emotional rollercoaster of waiting for so many stages and getting your hopes up each time is so much harder than I thought it would be.
