@miissalina how did you go this week? Hope your epu didn't leave you in too much pain.
Nezz79 sounds like you have got a nice lil feeding/sleeping routine happening there hun! I'll have to pick your brain about it all ☺️ 6 hour sleeps is awesome! Do you just feed on demand/when they wake?
My last scan at 31+5 showed bubs weighing 1.9kg & 1.8kg - which is above average apparently, espec for twins. Got another scan next week so will be interesting to see if they've put much more on!
@Rarah11 sorry if I spoiled you announcing yourself I didn't even think I was so happy you got ur bfp!!! When is ur scan? Did you do anything different this time around @Molros thanks cheering me on I love the support on her I prefer it than telling ppl I'm close with as they don't always get it @KayzB I remember you from other threads ur also another lady I have stalked from time to time to see how you are going can't believe how far along you are so happy for you
AFM epu was awful overdosed me on fentanyl and anaesthetic, could keep my eyes open, had the shakes for two days and then exhaustion , even said to myself I will never do this again!!! I'm just one of those ppl that can't tolerate anything it's really annoying. So we got 15 and 11 fertilised 😊 day 3 we had 7x8cell, 3x6cell and 1x4cell and tomoro is the day we find out how many are good for pgd and freezing, my numbers look great but this is what always happens they drop off between day 3-5 so I'm hoping and praying that because we changed clinics and did things differently that won't happen this time
@miissalina hello darling, yes we've had a few cycles together 😊 I also have kept an eye out for your progress. I know you've had many disappointments & setbacks, but you are so amazingly strong to keep soldiering on. I love how, though difficult, you always manage to pick yourself back up & try again. That in itself is something to be so proud of 💖
Sorry to hear you had such a crappy EPU experience, doesn't sound pleasant at all 😕 Well done on great stats so far though! I know it's getting to that nerve-wrecking period in terms of numbers dropping off, but really praying for you that this time will be much different & wonderful xx
Yes @KayzB I demand feed at night and during the day I try to keep to 3-4 hourly but also demand feed if they need it. If I bf they seem to be hungry one hour later if I ff they seem to get to 3 hours before being hungry again. It's so annoying coz I want to bf but it seem like I have to do twice the amount of work as they are just hungry again sooner. I am happy I made it to 8 weeks bf I'm going to try to keep going but I just don't know how much longer I can keep it up.
As for weights I'm pretty sure my 2 were around that weight at 32 weeks. At 36 weeks they were estimated at 2.95 and 2.8kg and a week later came out similar so I think they are pretty accurate.
I look forward to your announcement. Rest up now as much as you can the last few weeks are the hardest and you get tired and the feet really start to swell so keep them up us much as you can. Good luck xx
@Missilina sorry EPU was crappy I'll be thinking of you. FX for good fert rates! And you didn't spoil my announcement to be honest I'm so nervous about it that I try not to think about it (bit hard really) blood test on Tuesday and scan the following Wednesday
@Nezza79 sounds like you are doing really well and have great routine in place - 2 must be hard work but totally worth it! Can I ask what your first hcg was?
@KayzB sounds like all is going well - not long now how exciting!
@miissalina sorry you felt so sh1tty afterwards but hopefully it'll all be worth it I'm crossing everything for you and will be lookimg out for your updates.
@KayzB yes she was six mths last week, have no idea where the time has gone. We didn't find out the sex either...so exciting when you get to look!!
@Rarah11 how are you going hun?
@KayzB thanks so much Hun ur words really made me smile 😊 you were on steroids this bfp weren't you?? @Bongley thanks also Hun you have been a great support and also have shown a lot of strength and determination, if someone was to tell me when I started this id be in this position 18months later I wouldn't have believed them but it's true what they say you don't no how strong you are until being strong is the only option you have, someone said to me last week I don't no how you do it my response was well what choice do I have I no what I want so I either just give up and then what ?? I've just given up on something I want more than well I can't even compare or I just keep putting one foot in front of the other and keeping trying.
It has changed me and I have learnt so so much it's changed me in a good way though I've grown as a person and have learnt a lot about realising that that picture you had about how life was ment to be and the how ur story is ment to go actually isn't how anything will pan out, the fact my parents are on the verge of getting a divorce doesn't help that definitely wasn't how things were ment to go, but I guess four losses and fertility issues weren't ment to be part of my story either.
Just have to be grateful and remind myself of how lucky I am to have the opportunity to actually do fertility treatment some ppl don't have that option or have the funds
HELLO everyone else, once again massive thanks for being so supportive and still hanging around even though you have your little ones safely in ur arms you's are amazing ladies 😊
AFM phone call yesterday told me 1 to biopsy, I completely lost it cried and cried and thought how can I go through so much for one to test but today I was told they had another three to test another hatched yesterday and two more over night. So we have 4 that was biopsied and waiting on results now which takes roughly 3-4 weeks. I've never had 4 hatching blasts before so this clinic change so far has been good , would have liked some more given my age but I'm grateful for 4 😊
