    @kate124 don't be too hard on yourself! You've been doing far more than most! If you eat bread then you'll be getting folate, and from green leafy veg.
    I'd be directing my frustration on the FN! At every stage of my fertility journey so far, each person has asked if I been taking folate and vitamins!
    Anyway, I agree that not taking vitamins would not have an impact on the HCG level.
    Thinking of you, but I'm sure everything is fine!

    @Butterfly39 good to hear things are tracking along well!
    How many have you previously transferred? xx

    Hi everyone

    Can I join you all? I've been reading along in the background since pg1 but I was waiting to find out if I had the green light to start my 1st cycle in May.

    Which I now know I can! Both excited and nervous.

    Bit of info in my signature, but to bring you up to speed in a nutshell. We were trying for a year naturally & nothing happened. We consulted my GP who has been fantastic & arranged a lot of blood tests, ultrasounds & SA's for DH.
    Things came back fine for me, other than an u/s picking up that I have a bicornuate uterus (Laproscopy & hysteroscopy with our FS showed this wasn't a huge concern and was of no link to our fertility struggle)

    However, DH's SA tests (2 through our GP & one for clarification through our FS) were not so good. Count is low, motility & morphology is poor.

    Got our FS referral early December 2013.

    So our diagnosis is MFI and we'll be going down the ICSI route.

    I'm on an antagonist cycle with 150iu Puregon, then 250iu Orgalutran & trigger is Ovidrel (sp?)
    My first injection is tonight - freaking out a bit already!

    Yep so that's me. Wishing everyone success for May

    Welcome @Calstar! Exciting & hopefully wonderful times ahead for you! 😊 We do ICSI due to MFI too. Good luck with 1st jab tonight hun; going to do it on your own, or get DH to do it? I'm sure it will go smoothly either way! xx

    Kayz & Bertie - I've had quite a few transfers of 2 blasts... And my most recent transfer was of x3 day 3 embies (an eight cell and 2 seven cells)... In QLD there is no maximum legal limit, it's purely up to the specialist when considering the woman's overall prognosis and age.

    In Australia, there are roughly 1000 triple embryo transfers every year. It depends on whether I will get blasts but I will be pushing for 3 again, even if they are blasts, as for me a multiple pregnancy is an acceptable risk of achieving a pregnancy at this point.

    Calstar - welcome - I hope your journey is short and sweet!

    Thank you for the welcome @KayzB
    I'll be doing the jabs myself, DH occasionally goes away on business so I'll need to be able to do them myself.
    He'll probably watch & make sure I'm doing it ok, nothing like some additional pressure hey? Lol

    How is your DH with the MFI diagnosis?
    Mines a closed book, but always has been really. I wish he'd open up a little more!

    @Calstar ahh same here, well my DH does shift work so I do it on my own; can't rely on him - which I like to repeatedly remind him 😜

    Initially DH took it really badly; we always thought it was just me with the issues, so when we found out abt his MFI, it was a big shock & blow to him. And he felt terribly guilty. So my approach was to just try make light of the situation, play it down so that it wasn't such a big deal (I mean in a sensitive way, not as in telling him to get over it lol) And that it was something that can be addressed/'fixed' etc.

    When you try to pry things out of DH, does he just not want to speak about it at all? Have you considered a counselling sesh? Just to 'break the ice' & pave the way for him to be more open with you etc?

    Calstar, like most things, I think the injections are kind of easier if you just do them yourself. I sometimes get my DH to do a mini countdown which is kind of fun . Don't stress about them, you will be jabbing like a pro in no time !

    welcome @Calstar ! Yep, the first jab is a bit weird but hopefully you'll be pleasantly surprised at how little they hurt. Especially if you give your skin a bit of a pinch. The one that freaked me out was the one you had to inject a bubble of air. I was sure I was going to drop dead. (I didn't)

    AFM
    I've posted this in the march thread (I am on about 3 different threads ) :-

    So of the 9 eggs collected yesterday, 3 were immature, so I was hoping for 6 fertilised. However 7 eggs have fertilised overnight which is great.

    The difference in fertilisation rates between my recent cycles as compared to two years ago is pretty amazing. I was getting just over 50% two years ago. I know that Genea have developed a new solution that the eggs fertilise in. I can't believe its anything do to with things improving on my side! (not at 41 anyway)

    Bring on the day 3 update on saturday.
