    All your thoughts paid off..... after stressing myself to beyond nervousness, the bub was there plain to see. In fact, DH was so excited and kept babbling and babbling to the doctor, and eventually I had to tell him to be quiet for a while so the doctor could do his thing and take measurements. Quite clear to see the sac, the little fuzzy bean-shaped blob measured 15.33mm, and the heartbeat flickering away brightly. I asked the doctor what the heartbeat rate was, but he's just a temp (as my FS is away), but he said it's definitely over 100bpm as he could tell by how fast it was flickering. I was expecting to cry, be emotional and had told DH he would need to hold my hand, but strangely I didn't feel like that at all - it was kind of like an out-of-body experience, rather weird. Very relieved and happy, to say the least, but I so wasn't expecting to feel sort of removed from it. I think it just still doesn't feel real :-)) Thanks everyone for thinking of me, especially those who are still waiting for their BFP.

    That's fantastic news Bertie, I'm sure your feelings will change once you start feeling him/her, don't stress after all this time it's going to take more than a few weeks to get your head around your dream actually coming true

    Ladybug... interestingly, I felt a little icky for a few days from 5w3d, then really icky for three days at the beginning of 6w0d, then back to just feeling a little icky. I've haven't thrown up or anything major like that, but basically just feel icky all day long, sort of in waves. When I put food in my mouth, the ickiness goes away, but 5 seconds later it's back. But otherwise, nothing compared to what I've read or heard about.

    OK ladies,

    Just had a phone consult with Dr M with my HLA results. Basically DH and I have 5 matches (this is the level that Dr Braverman says requires treatment) and DH also has 05:01 on HLA DQB1 which apparently inhibits implantation.

    Dr M has suggested LIT + IVIG which = big dollars and three trips to sydney even before transfer The other option is to stick with previous protocol that produced DS (IVIG + pred, clexane etc) and hope we get an embryo with not many matches?? I have 3 frosties to play with.

    Thoughts???

    PS - I am also concerned about using a therapy that is currently banned in the USA

    @MGC Bertie, let's hope icky is all you get and you've got a nice easy 8 months ahead. I think food is the key to keeping on top of it. Eat eat eat!! I find sour lollies are good too.
    @Scruffy, I really don't know much about the HLA matches so not sure how much I can help. Doesn't Dr Braverman use Neupogen and intralipids/IVIG for matches? Was this an option with Dr M? I would be inclined to try and new protocol. I've never looked into LIT. I'm sure some have had it on here though? Good luck with it all.

    I asked Dr M about neupogen, he said it is very strong and he would prefer to do LIT. Also the LIT lasts for 6 months so would cover me for a few rounds
