    We are going well - after our initial dramas (SCH bleeds at week 6 & week 7 ) with forced bedrest for 5 weeks everything settled down.

    We did our NT scan at 13 weeks and came back with very low risk 1:20,000 for both babies.

    We did have another bleed at 14 weeks but I think this SCH was more due to over doing work (repetitive lifting, long hours etc). Was put on bed rest again for a few days.
    Again everything has settled down and we will be 16 weeks tomorrow 😊
    I'm waiting (impatiently..) for our 20 week scan. I am however pleased to say MS has subsided and now it's just fatigue and insomnia that I'm dealing with ..

    Hi all,

    Well we went for our ET yesterday.

    We only ended up with 2 x compacting Morulas on day 5 so Wazza hasn't given us much hope. We only transferred one though so he could see what the other one is doing. Well I called this morning and she said the other one hasn't progressed and will not be frozen. So all we can do now is sit back and wait our two weeks to see if the other one has done anything. I'm not holding up much hope for it though.

    My sister has said this is it for her. So I discussed our options with Wazza and as our other major problem is sperm as well, I asked if it would be worth trying my eggs again with donor sperm from DH brother. He said it would be worth a shot. I think knowing that there is another option has helped me cope.

    I hope you are all doing well. Xx

    Oh I'm sorry things aren't looking good @KtKing . Having options really helps I think but it still hurts.

    I really hope you've got a strong little embie on board!!

    Hi ladies, sorry to crash the thread. I'm looking at doing OI next year but I have no clue about any of this stuff. Any tips or guidance would be much appreciated. Are there long wait lists?

    I've not done OI but I'm sure someone around here has and will be able to offer some guidance.

    Waiting lists for FS vary greatly, the first FS we went to we got an appointment within about 2 weeks my current specialist has a wait of 6 months.

    For simple OI I wouldn't think you would need to track down the "best" (ie long wait time) so you shouldn't have to wait.

    They will probably want to do a few tests which might hold you up but only for a cycle or 2.

    Thank you!! Sounds much less stressful than I was imagining.

    KT hoping you have had a good result despite Wazza's bleak prediction?

    It's good that you have options you can set your sights on.

    I know after our last failed OE cycle with Wazza, it was his suggestion of looking at other options (overseas DE/DS) that certainly gave us hope and made the grief easier to bear.
    Sitting here @22 weeks with twins I am So glad he is one for looking at any possibility and encouraged us down this path.

    Well I'm still living on hope right now.
    My first blood test @ 13dpt was only 68 and my second blood test @ 16 dpt only went up to 98. Kate said it is classed as a non viable pregnancy and I have to go back in a couple of days for another blood test.
    So now it has been 21 dpt and I am showing no signs of this baby giving up. I'm anxious about the blood test. I'm wondering is it possible this baby has fought back despite the odds.
    I'll know for sure on Monday I guess.

    Fx you just have a slow starter. Are they monitoring your progesterone to make sure they are adequate?

    Well they always do on the blood tests but since the diognosis of a non viable pregnancy they have taken me off all of my medication. I keep thinking that I have all the pessaries there so I might just start using them again. Just in case.
