Sorry for no personals as I'm in the car on the way back home, but I am now officially PUPO. The embryologist said it was a 12 cell this morning (day 4), but would have expected it to be a 16 cell by the time it went in this afternoon, graded 2A, so pretty happy for our first go. We also have at least one other 16 cell to freeze, maybe a second one, but they will have to check on it tomorrow as that one is a bit slow. So pretty excited, my DH is calling it our jellyfish!!
Anyone have any tips on keeping busy during the TWW? I have no idea whether I will POAS or not, my clinic said don't do it, so my DH has hid them, but I don't know if I will be able to hold out!
Congrats @krys1224 !
Sorry, no tips. I generally drive myself crazy and nothing seems to really work. It is just part of the rollercoaster.
I hate POASs (mainly because i've always had negative ones - even when I was pregnant!) so I avoid them. But I suspect if I got good results I would love them
@Precious40 just wanted to pop on and say sorry to hear about the news - such a confusing time for you and not sure what I'd do if I were in your situation as it would be so hard to go off the meds to see what happens. Take care of yourself.
@KayzB: Only one Crinone a day with your fresh cycles? Lucky you? My 2 fresh cycles I was on 1 Crinone, 2 Pessaries & 4 Progynova per day! Guess that kept AF away! With this FET I'm on 1 Crinone, 1 Pessary, Oestrogen and Provera (3/day). Will be interesting to see if I get AF this time (if it's negative of course).
Yay for the BFPs and Hugs to the BFNs.
Lots of for those of us still waiting!
@krys1224 I'd recommend buying a really good addictive page turner if you like to read, that helps with any quiet times.
@nvandmv I am envious of your FET, I wish I could jump straight into another round instead of having to wait weeks and weeks. Always. Waiting. I also hate feeling like I'm wishing my days away, I won't miss that when I get off the IVF 'merry'-go-round.
@katiana sounds promising indeed!
MrsBubbles that's a whole lot of meds ! How many dpt are you? Have/are you going to POAS?

Hi guys ... Had my egg pickup yesterday and got only 4 eggs. All 4 fertilised today which was good news as this time we froze dhs sperm as he was away for work. Hoping for a day 3 transfer of 3 embies, but that might be expecting too much .. But we will see what comes.
precious - sorry ur embie didn't stick, but on the bright side, congrats on having achieved implantation. Hopefully your bubba is not too far away. Do you have any frosties?
