Fiona2. I've come to terms with it now, still a BFN today, so no hope at all for the BT tomorrow. I have another FET next month which will be my last go, I have 2 x 6 cell 3 day embies, which is not great, but not terrible either I suppose. Strangely enough, I've had 2 people offer to donate eggs in the last week ! Both people I don't know incredibly well, and both did so without any warning ! A friend of my dp, she is 35 but I think the distance she would have to travel would make it very inconvenient for her as she works full time, and would you believe - my ex-husbands girlfriend ?!?!? How weird would that be ! She's 38 and a nurse so knows exactly whats involved and is happy to drive the distance to my clinic. Despite the weirdness I'm actually thinking that's my fall back plan.. she's right on the verge though, 38 is not ideal. Ex hubby will think its hilarious saying his ex wife is pregnant with his girlfriends baby, and to be honest, I think its a bit of a novelty too. Anyway, at least I have a couple of options. Still debating whether to do another EPU after the next FET, except I only ended up with 1 fertilised emby last time, my cycles now cost around $5000 out of pocket (cos I need to do a EPU followed by FET due to my progesterone levels) and I'll be 42 by then. Aaaaah this stuff will be the death of me..
As for everyone else, I have to apologise, I'm really struggling to keep up with this thread. I only check a couple of times a week and by then there is pages and pages and its a bit overwhelming. I hope everyone on the tww is holding in there and hopefully we'll see some more BFP's this week.

Bongley, I had that with my pregnancy last Aug and apparently its pretty common. You can get a clot near where the embryo implants and it will bleed or release every so often. its only a problem if its above the implanted emby apparently. I had huge bleeding during that pg and had things 'dropping' out of me into the toilet which gave me a heartattack as you can imagine, but they were just large clots of blood. Scary stuff. PS m/c was not related to that at all.
Thanks @Bongley and @nvandmv. I went and saw the clinic nurse this morning to take some blood. As an after thought, she took my temp and it was 38, which you don't get with OHSS. They'll do a full blood count and check for liver and kidney function. She suggested going to the gp to get my oxygen saturation tested, so I'm going to do that this arvo.
All I want to do is lay down, its the only thing that helps with the shortness of breath. You don't realise how easy breathing is until you have trouble! I'm just hoping it won't affect transfer, which is scheduled for Wed.

@VikkiB: Definitely sounds like OHSS. EPUs with more than 10 eggs run a higher risk of OHSS, so if you're scheduled to take stuff like Pregnyl booster shots after EPU, discuss with your doctor, because that will make it worse. Also try to up your protein intake - I ate smaller meals of steaks and tried to drink as much Sustagen (chocolate tastes better) as my stomach would allow me and found it helped.
@furbabymum: Hang in there! You're now one day closer to BT day.
@KayzB: Hope your DH's procedure goes well! I'm just hanging in there and took a followup BT after my Day 8 Pregnyl booster, but had to go to a different office to take it due to it being a Sunday. I asked the nurse for a heat pack, cuz I have some of the crappiest veins, but she scoffed at me and said she'd have a go first. I got soooooo angry (hormonal much?), cuz she then proceeded to try one arm and wriggled the needle under the skin in FOUR directions before giving up to switch to my other arm... which was already bruised from last week's BT. Had she given me a heat pack, she might not have failed at the first go. Now I'm going to bruise on BOTH arms, cuz she thinks she knows my body better than me.
It's official I'm pregnant 5weeks tomorrow.
Had my blood test yesterday and fn call me last night.. to confirm.
Have another BT tomorrow then in 10 days our 1st scan.. )
