    ****e update from me my e2 was only 182 today after 5 days of 450 gonal f injections, so I've been upped to 600 and will have a scan on Friday.

    Chiefsgirl, hope those follies pick themselves up and do some serious growing over the next few days!!

    Angels4me, congratulations, great story

    Faith, those are really good numbers, you must be so pleased

    Kelly, how are things going, have you been given an EPU date yet?

    leyshoja, hope your donor went well in EPU today and is recovering. Hope to hear some good news re fert rates and growth.

    Petal, hope the full feeling means lots of follies

    Bongley, will be thinking of you Friday

    Bertie, will be thinking of you for transfer.

    Nane, Em, me+he &she & anyone else I've forgotten

    Hey girls,

    Day god knows what after a marathon stim: have 7 follies on today's scan - 1x17mm, 2x14mm, 2x11mm (a little 7mm on my right jumped up), 1x10mm and a newie under 10mm. Lining 6mm but they don't seem concerned about that. Another scan Wednesday. Nurse called today and my estrogen is at 3100. She reckons one more scan after Wed, then I'm tipping EPU on the weekend. So hoping the 11mms catch up. After being a one follicle wonder at Melb IVF, I really can't believe what Lynn has achieved on my first cycle with her.

    Chiefs I feel really bummed for you - 5 days though, still time for it all to rise. Mine was about that in the first week of this cycle, then we increased Menopur to 450 and it started to rise. Many follies showing?

    @Chiefsgirl my estrogen flatlined on gonal f - I didn't get anything until I switched to menopur on day 6. Now 2ww after 2 x 2DT... These cycles can sometimes turn on their head if you give them a bit of time. For you!

    Congrats @Angels4me and good luck faith and Bongley. My donor had 5 mature eggs, I find out tomorrow morning how many fertilise, fingers crossed for all 5! I admit I have very mixed feelings about all of this. This morning I felt a bit like I wasn't even involved as donor was in EPU, dp was doing his bit, and I was doing nothing. I'm also feeling a bit down about the whole donor thing. This isn't the way it was meant to be - I never ever was going to do this ivf process unless it was my own bub. Look how things have changed. Yes swelling has improved but I've been walking each dAy which makes it a lot better

    @leyshoja yes, now that you explain it, I can see how you would feel like that for sure. You are giving up your hopes for a biological child with each step. Man, as if this process doesn't do your head in enough.

    Fingers crossed for tomorrow and I hope you get 5 strong embryos.

    Hey girls - just been working insane hours and am quite drained.. Last weekend I worked around 24 hours... So bub hub has been well out of my time management plan! Scan yesterday and lining is thicker than we would have liked but apparently it does not matter if I'm egg banking onl as ovaries are fine. Jabs start today....

    Leyshoja just remember that although the DNA plan for the child is not from you, it is actually 'made' from your cells, sustained by you, and is literally of your body. Also the field of epigenetics and much of what we now know especially about heritability of diseases comes from research that shows that particular Genes are up or down regulated by the mother in utero. Beyond that what we know from the field of psychology and sociology about raising children tells us that unless the parents were criminals (ie had antisocial personality disorder) the child will internalise your values, socialised by your personality, and learn the same way, therefore inheriting your quirks, many of your traits, behaviours etc etc. And obviously the child will mirror your attachment style also. It is therefore my view that you should relax and realise that this is going to be YOUR child and no one else's, literally made of your flesh and blood, and looking to you as mother, its true mother of creation. You willed this child to be created and this is a celebration of new life. And this baby needs it to be so, he or she will need you emotionally to be mother 110%. Really, the child will be a lot like you. Besides, I have a brother who is obviously genetic but he is nothing like any of us! That's the beauty of evolutionary potential, new phenotypes can appear from anywhere! It's a beautiful moment of creation and if successful, you will get a wonderful baby that you will absolutely adore whose only true mother who gave life to it in this vast universe will be you.

    Just reading to catch up on everyone else's news. Xx

    That's so true butterfly. My husbands brothers all share with him particular traits that were not inherited but learned. All have very different careers and one is very artistic even though there are no other artists in the family. Your own genes can produce children that may in no way resemble you and have very different talents. It's the other things that I think are important. I don't care if my kids grow up to be musicians or IT programmers so long as they value people more than money. That I can model and teach no matter if they are my genes or someone elses.
