@Petal40 woot woot !! How exciting
@Petal40, that is fantastic, you must be thrilled! Hope you feel better soon, OHSS is not nice
@Butterfly39, @Chiefsgirl & @faithandhopellove, thinking of you three tomorrow morning for EPU. I'm also thinking of nice big (but not too big) numbers for all of you
@Bongley, only a week till EPU, hope you are holding up well. Dragging your meds around on a work trip must have been tough. Are you back home now?
@leyshoja & @McGBertie hope the TWW isn't driving you crazy. I've given up POAS'ing, I'm sick of seeing no second line.
Em, JoJo and anyone else reading along
That's a great fert rate. I hope the luck continues for the Friday girls.

@spring Rain I didn't realise you were in the 2ww... Are you transferring your normal and unknowns? How many at a time? I imagine it's only 1? Have you got frosties left?
@Petal40 that's a great fert rate.
Bertie & & leyshoja, hoping for some good news from you girls
Not looking forward to navigating G20 public transport tomorrow but of course that's how it is. Holed up in the air con right now with the therapy kittens, got to work tonight until around midnight then get up at 4 to catch the plane.... Oh well no rest for the wicked and all that
Good luck for tomorrow chiefs and faith, will be thinking of you. All the very best
Bongley.... yes, sneaking that cooler bag around isn't easy. I never used to take a cooler bag to work, so when I'd pick my drugs up in the morning, I had to just start pretending my lunch was in it. Until the first time I needed the huge esky (lots of drugs!!) and thought that no-one was going to believe that my cheese sandwich needed that much cooling. With a bit of imagination I pretended that I was going to the deli after work to stock up for a special lunch!! The lies I have told in the past three years :-))
Petal... congrats on 6 fertilized embies - that sounds very promosing. Hope there's some nice ones at the end of 5 days.
Butterfly, Chiehfsgirl and Faith... good luck on EPU tomorrow. Will be checking in to see how you all went. Best of luck xx
SpringRain.. thanks for thinking of me. Not POAS actually keeps me sane, as I just do it on the morning of the BT, so I don't fret about it the rest of the time. However, I'm 5dp5dt and like always, I haven't felt a thing, so think this is going to be the same as all the others. I'm actually surprised by the amount of injections (Clexane, Neupogen and Pregnyl), strong meds (Dex) and progesterone pessaries twice a day that I'm taking, that I still don't feel anything different!! You would at least think those things would have some impact, but no!
Hi ladies.. I hope you don't mind me joining your thread.. I can relate my ivf journey to many of you and I was told by someone at another thread that many of the ladies here have done genetic testing of there embryos (CGH or SNP array ). I wanted some answers in relation to that.
My ivf journey
started ivf 2010 at Melbourne ivf did from the first stimulated cycle got pregnNt twice but miscarried due to random chromosomal abnormalities.
Fs advised to do pgd to avoid miscarriages. Did 2 more rounds which created 3 more embryos at day 3 .. Did pgd cgh testing. All abnormal
last year on the advice of many friends , shifted to monash ivf with. Dr lynn Burmeister. She did 2 stimulated cycles which resulted in 4 hatching blastocysts ( we never made it to blastocyst stage earlier) Dr lynn burmeister is really good at testing everything under the sun and trying new things. The 4 blastocysts were sent to the U.S for pgd testing which is called snp array and it's very comprehensive. We got 2 perfectly normal healthy embryos and 2 came back with inconclusive results.
We were very happy to have two normals . In the past 3 months I have had 2 FETs with these normal embryos and unfortunately both have resulted in a bfn. I got my second bfn today. And my doctor also had me on a very aggressive protocol to rule out any implantation issues( which I don't have she said as I have fallen pregnant twice). Just don't know what else can me or my doctor do. In a complete state of shock after hoping for a positive result as the success rate jumps up if you transfer a chromosomally normal embryo. All my bad embies decided to stick and these perfectly normal embies didn't implant. How ironical ! Could there be any other reason? If any of you ladies have had any near to similar experiences , can you please guide me through... Really looking forward for some support and success stories from this lovely group.
Hi @Sue77 I am so sorry for your Bfn today, it totally sucks and I feel your pain.
Do you have any immune issues? Have you been tested for nk cells? There is a thread in bubhub that talks about it, some of us on this thread are on there too.
I truly hope you get your bubba soon xxx
Welcome @Sue77 I'm so sorry you have been trying for 4 years and about your latest BFN that is so hard.
Its not the same as a tested embryo but I had my best looking embie (an expanded blast) on cycle 7 that went nowhere. I was so gutted. All I can say is please keep trying. Some of the wonderful gals here will have some great suggestions I'm sure. Welcome to the 40's thread.
@faithandhopellove & @Butterfly39 & @Chiefsgirl GOOD LUCK TODAY!!
Let us know how you do. I hope you all get some golden sweet quality eggs.
AFM first ultrasound today. I *think* I can feel some jangling in the ovaries but it might just be wishful thinking. Ever since my cancelled cycle the first ultrasound is a bit more anxious than before.
