MrsErinR, thats great! Start organising your trip! So excited for you.
Esperanza, that was not your time next time for sure! Do you have any frosties left?
Tittle, I sent you the info. I had issues sending it through, let me know if you didn't receive it
Esperanza, I'm so sorry to hear about your result the embies can't be tested unfortunately, they can only be tested before they are fertilised which is a bummer.
Mcbertie was was it you that asked about thyroid issues. Yes they do play havoc with conceiving, your thyroid is part of your hormone work up. In the UK you get your thyroid tablets for free because hormones play a big part in your health.
Hellonwheels, so sorry to hear about your grandfather, what horrible news to receive at the best of times but to receive it whilst your cycling... I can't imagine how you are feeling (hugs)
biba I hope your visa comes through soon
sorry if I have missed anyone
Thank you for the support ladies.
GFS - unfortunately we didn't have any embies make it to freeze so we are back to square one. Sunshine have given me a reduced rate if I want to go with them again, and I haven't heard back from CFC as to whether they will reduce their fees.
Esperanza - I can't remember if you're liaising with a FS for your treatments? If so it might be worth adding in predisolone, the antibiotics and some clexane if you're concerned more is going on. A 'basic' immune protocol.
Your main issue (from your siggie) is POF so it may just be that it was just one of those things (that freaking sucks)... big hugs to you love. Any BFN is hard to take, but after all this effort one on return from SA would be awful.
Thanks emski. I also have hypothyroidism and I have been seeing my RE for that and he suspects it's auto immune. I never really thought about my hypothyroid affecting the transfer as I had it under control with medication. But before we decide to head back again I'll be asking him and doing anything we can that might possibly help.
Oh Esperanza I am so sorry to hear your confirmed BFN. Unfortunately it does not always work first go and there is no clear explanation. I don't know much about Thyroid issues but definitely you should further investigate this and leave no stone unturned. We are all sending you a big hug
Helonweels - so sorry to hear your sad news. Thinking of you
I can see there are a lot of updates for the roll call I will get to it shortly
A truck load of baby dust to all of you
Biba- Unexpected solutions can arise out of "baby dust"! Please don't lose hope!
Girl from Sydney - 6 fertilized! Stay positive! Remember it can happen with one good embie!!!
Cloggy - baby dust and fingers crossed for you. Good luck with your transfer
MGC Bertie- I am so excited for you. 1 in the oven and 3 beautiful embies in the fridge. It couldn't be better.
Helonweels - so sorry about your grandfather. We never know what's coming our way next. Life is so precious. I hope you are able to find peace and some comfort at this time.
Mrs ErinR - I would like suggestions and info on giving a gift to our donor also. I'm not sure if it is crossing the line and what would be appropriate . Congratulations on your treatment plan, you only have ten days left, lots to do but so exciting!!!!
Esperenza- I am so sorry about the BFN Why we have to try so hard I don't know but I already know you are strong and determined and this will lead you to a BFP. I know it. Not giving up is half the battle.
AFM - can anyone tell me what that stands for? (haven't been able to figure it out) I haven't heard back from the CFC if my donor made her rescheduled apt which was Monday. Have sent an email.... Just waiting to hear...

In regards to giving your donor a gift - it's fine as long as the value isn't too high - I think they might have a limit on how expensive the gift can be at CFC - ask your agency or CFC for the guidelines. We just bought our donor an opal pendant and a card written with nothing identifying us. You give it to your co-ordinator on the day of her egg pick up and they pass it on.
Babydreamer, AFM = As for me :-)
