    Thanks Ladies

    My FS said i am reluctant to mention the weight as there are plenty of people bigger than you that can produce great eggs and given how much you have already lost but it may help

    This was our first cycle with him and he is pretty amazing - he will try everything he can to get us our own baby which is why he doesn't even want us to think about donor but in the back of my mind I can't help thinking about it

    Heading to the chemist today to stick up on a variety of vitamins meant to help egg quality and it's back to the gym tonight

    I'm numb and exhausted and just going to try anything

    I wanted to do Fertility yoga but there doesn't appear to be anywhere in Western Sydney that does it

    @Gelati thanks for the resources
    @jeb8303 talk to your fertility specialist about vitamins etc as some actually interfere with IVF. For example a lot of women go to an accupunturist or chinese medicine practitioner and get prescribed vitex or something similar and apparently if you are doing IVF this is to be avoided. Also melatonin is by prescription, the ones you get over the counter for jet lag is not potent enough. About fertility yoga.. you can always check youtube I know what you mean by using donor eggs is at the back of your mind. Try to leave it there and cross one bridge at a time or you can drive yourself crazy digging up info you may never need and if your FS has not suggested it as yet just keep trying with your own eggs. I am glad your FS said something about weight to you as so many people dance around the subject and it's best to be upfront no matter how much it hurts. I completely empathise. xx

    @jeb8303. I also took royal jelly but you can spend loads trying to find the right vitamins - have you tried accupuncture? Please don't give up hope yet!

    @straycat

    Yep, I know that Vitex can counter the effects of IVF as it is actually toxic to an embryo.

    Ah - I won't worry about Melatonin then - I was just going to get the over the counter ones which are meant to help with sleep anyways - though could be a good idea as I sleep pretty poorly

    I will probably just look it up re the yoga - I'm not big on yoga but if it helps me relax

    I lost 30kg in 2013 but the only thing I can now control in my life, is once again, my diet and exercise so I guess that is what I will be controlling.

    Too many do skirt around it but at the same time 150kg+ women are perfectly able to have babies so it shouldn't be the main factor
    @Rarah11 - I've got Royal Jelly on my list to purchase - I did acupuncture this cycle with no change - which has also turned me off it as well.. its an added expense on top of everything else

    I haven't given up hope but it is feeling pretty slim at the moment and I just can't fathom having a child that will never look like me

    Agree @jeb8303, you have plenty of age up your sleeve, as long as you have quantity, eventually you will get quality. I've gone with a donor after a gazillion cycles (ok only 8), but only because I am over 42 now and I have neither quality OR quantity.. Otherwise I would have continued with my own. I honestly never thought I would go this way as if its not mine, its not mine, but it is still DP's and after carrying for 40 weeks, will be mine too. Plus my donor cycle is costing me out of pocket about the same as about 4 epu cycles, or 7 frozen cycles, so very exxy. Not happy about that bit

    AND... I console myself with metagenetics - the fact that my genes will turn on or off certain characteristics in the embie. Someone said on one of these forums ages ago that they see the donor as the architect, DP is the engineer, between them they provide me only with a set of plans, and I'm the builder. The one who does all the work. I like that analogy

    @jeb8303 I used to use an app called Pocket Yoga - it has a nice simple 30 minute yoga class you can do at home that I found was a decent enough workout. It's the Ocean, 30 minute beginner one within the app which i think costs a few dollars.

    Yeah - that's why FS doesn't want me to think about donor eggs at the moment but it is always at the back of mind - especially because I don't have anyone who will donate

    I know I would love the child but still I'm not ready to give up on my own eggs just yet - I just hate that it is one thing after another and constant heartache yet these junky crack heads can pop them out like they are skittles - how can their eggs be healthier than mine?

    That's a nice anaology and ouch about the price
    @ScubaGal - thank you - I will look into it xx

    @jeb8303 don't give up just yet, I know it is still fresh and raw and you are already feeling low but you are quite young and you have a lot of eggs, upping the quality is possible. Don't give up on melatonin and buying over the counter ones is a waste, just ask your FS to write you a script, I often get scripts without having to book in an appointment, it just gets sent to my house. In your case you can just pick it up. CoEnzymeQ10 is also a good one but a high dosage as well. Just call your nurse and ask for a script and dosages from FS. He will be happy to help after delivering such news. If he is unsure what to prescribe maybe get a new FS. I know you think he is great but does he have a good track record? sometimes a 'nice' doctor is not always the best one.
    I am not a fan of accupuncture either but some women swear by it.

    @leyshoja thanks for sharing your story, heart warming xx
    @Gelati good luck with fert rates today xx
    @Ladydee expecting some impressive numbers lovey xx
