    AFM, I was feeling really fatalistic about ivf last night and it dawned on me that it may never happen for me. Well I must have ESP or a sixth sense because today I got a sh*tty phone call from the embryologist. One 'unknown' result, 1 trisomy 11, 1 trisomy 15. I'm numb and p*ssed off about the 'unknown'. This is why we pay $$$$$$ for PGD, to get an answer and all I have is an 'unknown'. We've made the snap decision to transfer it ASAP and get the misery over and done with sooner rather than later, start blood tests for a FET on Wednesday. Not happy Jan.
    For christs sake u can't make this sh!t up. Gah that REALLY sucks. Although, it's not like they actually found anything wrong with it. I'd transfer it ASAP too.

    Kind of explains why you're not getting pg though if they're all duds? Even if mine are all wonky, that will give me closure on my 'own egg' journey. One door closes, another door opens and all that jazz. Really feel for u, that's hard news to deal with. There could still be a good egg in the tree though and the 'unknown' could be it. Really sorry this happened. Surely some of the pgd cost is offset by the lost time, money and potential emotional dramas you saved by not transferring the trisomys?

    @Skyler that must be frustrating. Fingers crossed the "unknown" is the special egg you've been waiting for x

    AFM I feel like I'm just hanging in limbo. 1 more week until the next scan, and I have these moments of irrational panic that there won't be a heartbeat and that I'm not really pregnant. Then there's the worry of if I get successfully past that appointment, I have all the tests to do to ensure this little bean is healthy. I think it's worse than the 2WW!
    Yeah I think if I got pg I would be a basket case. I feel for u Petal! Best not to panic, get the distractions happening. Gardening chills me out.

    By the way just have to say I met the LOVELIEST lady with the gorgeous Maltese puppy in WDAs today having intralipid. What a doll! She took me back to my hotel after EPU when DH fell asleep after night shift and slept through the recovery phonecall to pick me up. I briefly considered throwing a hissy fit about it when I arrived back but he was so incredibly mortified I didn't have the heart. (Can u believe he did that lol)

    Lady, you were a lifesaver. If you're reading this, thankyou again from both of us. Xxxxx

    Butterfly, stories like that really restore your faith in humanity don't they. It's really nice when a random stranger shows some kindness when there's nothing in it for them. Makes up for all the as£*!€?.

    Luckyme, phew it's great you're moving forward again!

    Petal I understand how waiting on scans and such would be worse that the TWW, I have a feeling everything will be fine for you.

    Thanks all of you for your thoughts re my 'unknown' PGD embie. I suppose it's better than 'abnormal'.

    @Skyler, that really sucks hon, gosh I feel for you - such an effort to get to that point and then have this happen. I'm with everyone else, let's just hope little 'unknown' becomes little baby Skyler.

    @Butterfly39 that is a great egg haul, well done ovaries! Hoping there are some good ones in there for you

    @Petal40 I totally understand your anxiety, I know myself that I've been an absolute wreck in those first few weeks, to the point of one night waking up with a massive panic attack that something was wrong with my baby (I was right) and DH had to try and help me breathe and get through it, but I was hysterical. I've never seen a heartbeat, so for me, an ultrasound is always bad news - goodness knows how I'm going to get through when I fall pregnant again - I think a good supply of valium is in order! (Is that pregnancy safe?) :-) Good luck with keeping the stress at bay, you're doing so well, and all the signs are good, so just keep racking up those awesome milestones as you go.

    AFM I did 6500 of Pregnyl yesterday so that means ovulation at 8pm tonight! Go eggy go!!! (Potentially two or three eggies if all three follicles matured properly!) DH and I have been DTD every night for the last few days and will be at it again the next few nights :-)

    I'm doing OK with the injections - I have a bruise the size of a tennis ball on one side of my belly when I had to do four in one go and must have hit a blood vessel, but I'm just down to Clexane now, and I'm a bit better at that one after googling how to prevent bruising, yesterdays was a lot better.

    Fingers crossed the stars align tonight for eggy and sperm to meet and do their thing

    @Skyler, I really feel for you lovely - just unbelievably frustrating. I've been thinking so much about how things might have been different for me had I tried pgd etc, but there just don't seem to be any clear paths or easy answers in this game. Still, you have one stubborn, mysterious little blastie there, and it may just be the one.

    Diazepam definitely is not safe in pregnancy - it's category D which means its associated with an increased risk of congenital malformations

    @Skyler so sorry, bout the poor but inconclusive outcome, I also had this weird sixth sense about our last one as well, I just didn't "feel" like there were little embies dividing away for me!
    @Fudge09 our first cycle gave us 1 really embie to transfer no frosties but our second cycle was 0 fert, our FS was pretty honest and said that he basically threw everything at that cycle so really nothing else can be added so he said have one more go but if it's the same outcome we would be wasting our money as it's futile! Still not sure how DP feels about DE though

    Actually, valium is safe in pregnancy in small doses as Wazza prescribed it for me for round ligament pain and also to relax the uterus before my CVS procedure. He also prescribes it for his ladies who are having threatened MC's to relax the uterus too. The issue is when you take it in huge doses over a long period of time especially in the 3rd trimester as it can affect the baby's breathing when born not to mention having an addicted bub.

    Yes, I am aware of some specialists using it in very specific situations, to avoid miscarriage is a risk vs benefit situation, therefore the statement that it is 'safe for use in pregnancy' is still false. Under supervision of an FS is one thing, however it has been shown to be associated with an increase in the risk for congenital malformations. Something to avoid at all costs, I would think.

    Leisylou... lol, my DH would be way happy if he was getting all that BD!!! Good luck :-)

    Skyler..... let's hope that's the one. There are plenty of cases of women with one that becomes the one, so it might just be you xx

    AFM.... I went for the 12 week scan this morning (at 12w5d) and such a relief, everything seems to look fine. The technician said that the baby is very active, cheeky and was causing him grief as it was moving around so much!! Amazing to see little fingers and toes, and it even waved at us once (though DH missed that as he was looking elsewhere!!). Heartbeat 153 bpm, and measures 6.3cm. Hope you all get to that stage one day xx I know it sure took us forever!!
