    Hi everyone,

    Congrats to all the BFPS recently. I have a bit of reading to do as I have been staying away from Forums and Dr Google!
    I've been MIA as our lead up to CPT (3rd trip) was stressful due to lining issues.. we were due to travel over in April and June with both trips cancelled within hours of departure due to lining issues I was having. Eventually we travelled over in July for 6 days, we had our 12 embryos PGD before arrival and only 3 were viable. This time around we chose to transfer 1 embie and we finally fell pregnant. Currently 14 weeks and still can't believe it!! We haven't told friends as yet as we are still nervous nellies.... For the first 6 weeks I was having weekly blood tests ( going to different doctors!!) and now having scans every couple of weeks for reassurance.

    For those that are heading over to CPT in the coming months good luck..for those that are having to return again, one thing I did before going back was to get my immune system checked out and I have been consulting with Prof Matthias in Sydney who has been fantastic. I believe his protocol got us our positive pregnancy. I am still on some of the immune medication and will be retested in a couple of weeks.

    Laned I bought extra Gestone in CPT, I had read on one of the earlier forums to do this as its cheaper in CPT. I also had to supplement Gestone with extra progesterone pessaries from week 7 when I had a little bleed.

    For those of you heading to CPT in the coming weeks/ months all the very best. You will love CPT! We are so looking forward to returning to CPT one day soon.

    Just a Thot, @seahorse can't you get some of the ladies leaving for CPT from your neck of the woods to get it for you and then post to you on their return? Or would it be too late?
