    I go back to see my FS on Tuesday. He is already thinking about changing my protocol. I'm on 225 of Gonal F. Not sure if he wants to go lower. My ovaries are still aching even without the stims. I was too sore to sit at work so walked around all day. Have needed more pain killers plus a hot water bottle when I get home. DH was keen to use the extra follies for a natural cycle this month but I think they need the extra stims to mature.

    So confronting having to be in the maternity ward!
    Could anyone help me with the definition of FFS? I assume it contains one or more four letter words?

    Petal the TWW is the most torturous part of this whole thing. During stims you have something to do every day but during the TWW you just, well, wait..... I know many have said it before but symptom spotting doesn't help although we all do it. Crossing fingers for that BFP or as Blonde would say, that BFFP!

    Leyshoja, hope you don't mind if I chime in late on the one vs two debate. I think all the ladies have made valid points. But, I assume your embryos, being from donor eggs, were created from young eggs not 40+ year old eggs? In this case your age does not affect their chance of success and your risk of twins is higher than it would be with your own eggs. Therefore, I agree with Luckyme, the risk of twins outweighs the benefits. It would be a different story with 40+ year old eggs where I would be saying transfer two. In my own case, even with 42 year old eggs I would never transfer 2 because I would not want to put all my eggs in the one basket. And if your embryos are frozen you're not actually leaving them in the dish, they are there for you whenever you want them in the future. Of course it's your body and your decision but just wanted to add my thoughts. Oh yeah, and there is a theory that a vanishing twin can cause some inflammation that affects the surviving twin long term.

    Winsor, how was your follicle scan today?

    MaxKat, I always write my list of questions down on paper so I don't forget them during the appointment. In regards to giving up, why not pursue this cycle if you can afford it financially. For all of us over 40, time is of the essence. You don't want to quit then regret it next year or further down the track.

    AFM, trigger tonight! It has happened very quickly this time

    Sorry everyone, I have about a week of catchup to do on BH so I've only seen a few messages, probably won't get a chance to catchup on everyone until this weekend, but I hope everyone is going well.
    Yes @Skyler, every other cycle with my eggs they've been only too happy to do 2 embie transfers, but these are 34 year old egg donor embies, so they are pretty set on only 1. My last pregnancy/mc was the first of those donor embies and I just don't want to do another 4 cycles (4 frosties left), but the risks of twins are pretty high I suppose, even tho the first one was a failure. I just don't know what to do.
    Will catch up this weekend with everyone - I promise.

    That's no good for you Faithandhopellove to be in such discomfort. I would be insisting on an ultrasound to see what's going on in there and get to the bottom of it. Put your feet up if you get a chance.

    So Chiefs, from your siggy, it looks like you started banking at stim cycle 5 but b4 that you transferred your embryos?

    To the newbies considering embryo testing, there are a few different ways they can do it. Depends who you are cycling with. Genea does not allow embryo banking. I have to transfer each normal embryo as it arises. They test embryos at 5-6 days every cycle which takes 3 weeks coz they can only run the testing in Sydney. You can not start a new cycle til the results from your previous cycle are known. My advice would be to do some research. In my own situation it has been a God send for cycle 2 but not so beneficial ever since then. It is more beneficial in this system when you produce multiple blastocysts per cycle. And only single transfers are allowed. Day 3 and day 5 testing are very different as well so do your reading. Embryos for day 5-6 testing have to be hatching blastocysts. Anything not hatched can be transferred to the uterus untested if it looks ok under the microscope. So many pros and cons and we are all in such individual situations. And I have to say, having a CGH normal embryo fail was one of the worst experiences of my life.

    Winsor, how did you go today?

    had my EPU today and we got 2 eggs from the 3 follicles - one from each side. was hoping for 3 but 2 is my usual number, so happy with this. they said they looked mature but won't know for sure till tomorrow. bit sore now. when I first stood up after the procedure a ****** of blood came out so they fixed that up. we stopped to get food after leaving and I nearly passed out. might have tried eating too quickly after the anaesthetic. DP was sweet looking after me. he called the nurses to check with them. been ok since resting at home so it's all ok. just woke up from a nap

    faith&hope I hope you feel better soon

    Well done Winsor, it's good you got mature eggs out of those 2 follies. I hope DH continues to wait on you tonight. I did the same thing after pick up the other day, out for brunch afterwards, home to bed. I found a warmed wheat bag on my tummy helped a lot that night. Fingers crossed you get 2 fertilised overnight.

    Oh that's good you have tomorrow to recover as well Winsor.

    No, I don't get day 2 updates so nothing today. I'll get a day 3 update tomorrow. So apprehensive about these updates but trying to just take each day as it comes.

    Quirky story for all you ladies, the day before EPU the nurse rang me to ask my permission for a medical student to be present for EPU and I immediately said yes. I understand sort of what it's like to be in the student's position, they have to learn somehow. BUT!!! When I get there, another nurse tells me the medical student is heavily pregnant and it's ok if I don't want her there. Well I was a bit taken aback, I understand they have to learn but this is a bit 'in your face' having a heavily pregnant medical student in an ivf clinic! I still said yes to her being there because I felt awkward saying no. I understand about workplace discrimination etc but I think they could ask her to swap her rotation til after the birth so as patients aren't forced to have that big prego belly in their faces during sensitive procedures. DH was more confronted by it than me. What would you ladies have done?

    Hi Skyler
    Hope your little ones are dividing nicely!
    In regards to the heavily pregnant student, probaly something they should of mentioned earlier for a start! . But you are the patient and if something makes you uncomfortable you are well within your rights to say so. I work in healthcare and if a patient says they do not want a student present no problem, the students understand, it's about what's best for the patient!
    I was waiting for my BT one day at the FS clinic and all the office girls were talking about their babies and the hassles of cloth nappies blah blah blah on and on it went, ummmmm hello???? I'm sitting right here, infertile, highly emotional woman in the room! I guess the people who even work in the industry just don't understand.
    Hope your feeling okay, I always feel like my insides have put back in wrong post EPU!

    yeah that does sound awkward. I probably would have let her be there, as I lose track of the people in the room during the procedure - trying to watch the screens & listen to the doctor. but it would have been a bit confronting walking into the room, so I understand your feelings. I hope she brought good luck to the room
