@Butterfly39 I was recommended to read the boom it starts with food by Dallas and Melissa hartwig. I've tried ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1416118242.356794.jpg to upload a copy of the cover (I have it as an ebook). Basically it's the paleo way of eating and follows something called whole30 which you can apparently find on the Internet. I haven't looked for it yet and haven't finished the book. It talks about how the food we eat can give us a hormonal response and an immune response as well as weight gain. I've had a lot of aha moments so far with the book. One lady in the group did the 30 days and lost quite a bit of weight and now follows this eating plan about 80% of the time and says she feels so much better.
I'm at the stage I'll give anything a go!
@Bongley I'm not sure how @Butterfly39's clinic does it, but ivfa freezes on day 3. Then when I am ready to test we will do a final fresh cycle and grow to day 3, they will defrost the frozen and take one cell from each embie and test. The results come back by day 5 and I can then transfer any that are normal and still going strong, and can freeze any left overs. There is a lot of discussion on whether day 5 or day 3 testing is best though and I know of clinics that only do one or the other. It cost $4k and is not rebate able by Medicare or phi so I am trying to get as many embies to test as I can. I'm also trying to get it all done before the end of the financial year as I can claim the oop on my income tax for the last time this financial year.
