    They really put you on the spot telling you the student was pregnant when you got there. Maybe they thought you were more likely to say no if you had more time to think about it. I think that's really poor. More distress to the paying patient.
    You know the best person I have met on this journey so far was a sonographer I had when I went to Newcastle (DH and I were away for a long weekend in the Hunter Valley). She took her time. Talked me through the procedure before she started. Counted all the follies (even the tiny ones) and told me what the measurements meant (how many were ready, what the lining should be etc). She even did a diagram of the follies in the ovaries and wrote all the numbers down for me to keep. I commented about the difference (my clinic had nurses do the scans and they told you very little) and she said she had 2 kids through IVF herself. It makes such a difference when people understand what you're going through. Less of the 'I had no problem getting pregnant and I'm here because the money is good' and more 'I went through this so now I have an interest in this area' students would be good.

    Thanks for the info Skyler. Im with genea so good to know what im up against before we decide which way to go. My only other concern would be that they freeze the eggs whilst waiting for results so if the results are all ok is there a chance the embryo will fail when thawed? Or if its a good embryo there is no chance thawing will make a difference? Your right tho, having a "good embryo" fail would def be hard as your hopes are so high knowing that its a good embryo.

    she sounds great faith. I ask for a printout of the last scans to see the follicle sizes so I can remember them.

    Yay for two eggs @winsor fx they both fertilise for you xxx
    @snickers74 I only started the embry banking for testing when I moved to ivfa last year. I did a cycle in aug/sep and then another in oct/nov. Had dec off and started again at the beg of jan. Because ivfa don't test individual embryo's at lower costs like genea (and that is very new and wasn't avail when I was looking at clinics last year), and because I usually only get 3-4 that fertilise, but only a cpl that are good enough to freeze, we are freezing them and will then test them. If I get normals out of them (please God) then we will transfer one at a time. I won't do any more stims till all the frozen normals are gone. They don't let you keep stimming to test and bank more normals.
    @Skyler I did 5 cycles at westmead in Sydney. My last cycle there was a freeze all because of high progesterone and we did a FET which didn't work. I then changed clinics and started the banking of embryo's. I spent a lot of last year doing lots of investigative testing which has picked up my immune issues, which my FS at westmead didn't believe in.

    I wd def have been upset by the pregnant student! My clinic does general anaesthetic for epu though, so I'd have said bring her in after I'm out so I don't have to see her!

    Good luck @Winson & @Skyler - hope everything goes well over the next few days!

    I am lining up for the idiot award this week :-(

    I have a POAS addiction and even though it's about 7dpo, I still bought a FRER three pack yesterday and of course, couldn't wait until this morning, so POAS late yesterday afterrnoon. And got a squinter of a line. Or an evap.

    So this morning I couldn't wait to pee again with FMU... And nothing. No squinter, totally blank. Couldn't quite believe that, so waited a couple of hours and peed again. Totally, plain as day, BFN.

    So within the space of about 14 hours I've used up a three pack of FRER, got my hopes up, had them dashed, and done the full emotional roller-coaster.

    Frigging genius here.

    So now I've banned myself from buying another pack for a few days because this was just too stupid for words!

    had bad news today. when they looked more closely at the eggs they were actually both immature. 1 became mature over time but failed to fertilize. so we lost both the sizing was a day ahead this time so we triggered 1 day earlier than previous cycles, I wonder if that would have made a difference. maybe to one of them (likely the left one). poor little things

    @winsor Oh sweetie I'm sorry to hear that... Just a kick in the guts to go through the whole process and end up with nothing this time... **** this is a hard road. I hope they learn something from this round and figure it all out better for you next time. Hugs for today, have a cry, a ton of chocolate and a glass of wine. (maybe the wine tonight, not this morning...)

    So sorry to hear that Winsor. Be kind to yourself and try not to dwell. Am thinking of you x

    @winsor - sorry to hear that - yes ive had my questions re triggering time before also. So frustrating.
    @Leisylou - I'm afraid I've done all the same stuff at different times, I'm sure everyone here can relate.
    @McGBertie - how r u feeling?

    Afm, D29 waiting for af with prednisone shakes. Bit nervous - last go here before DE. Think I've said that for the last 4 cycles at least though

    Winsor oh no that's devastating for you and just such a horrible phone call you have had go through. I really feel for you having gone through everything only to get this news. And to probably still be uncomfortable from EPU. It's just horrid. I think it's probably ok to drink wine in the morning under these circumstances!

    Leisylou, that POAS caper is a big trap. I avoid it when I have the strength. Just yesterday I put all my previous BFP FRER's in the bin and it was very cleansing. It sounds gross but I had kept them with their corresponding hcg blood test numbers written on them. Maybe I am a contender for the idiot award, being a positive pee stick hoarder.

    Thanks to all of you lovely ladies for your empathy re the prego medical student!

    Faithandhopellove, that's interesting about the sonographer being so great. I actually live in Newcastle. Were you at 'Newcastle Ultrasound for women' by any chance? My sonographer is an absolute angel. She has offered to come in early for me so I don't have to be late for work and is always so optimistic about my chances when sometimes I lack in that department. But I don't think she went through ivf herself. Maybe Newcastle is just full of great sonographers, aren't we lucky.

    My day 3 update is really good. We have 4 embryos at 8 cells, the correct stage for day 3. The other 4 have fallen behind at 4-5 cells. I'm happy with this. Please I just want one good embryo by day 5.

    Hi Chiefs, Miss Da, Snickers, chillout, MaxKat, Leyshoja, MGC Bertie, luckyme, Butterfly, Blonde, Petal, Fudge- how you going on stims?. And hi to everyone else I may have missed.
