thanks all. yes, 3 more is good. not sure I can take many more after that anyway as they take a lot out of you as you all know. Leisylou, not sure yet about DE. I saw that program too. I've read if you tell the kids about it early on, it's better for them. I'm not sure yet how I feel about it. I guess I have this year to think more. and save up. DP and I only met in 2012, when I was 42 at the end of that year. I think I did have a couple of very early chemical pregnancies naturally prior to starting IVF. I think if we'd met when I was late 30s & trying to conceive ~39/40 we could have had better luck. will never know for sure I guess. and yes, if all these fail, I still have hope for the frostie. I'm glad that last FET cycle was canceled as I don't think it would have survived the post-op/recovery (and possibly even previous cycles could have been at risk, had they been successful too & I was pregnant at the time of the op. at least, there would have been more complications)
Well I had a second blood test last Thursday and HCG was doubling nicely. Jumped from 905 to 19,000 in a week. I had a viability scan today and initially the radiographer couldn't find a heartbeat. She asked about my blood works and said she would have another look and by some miracle hidden way down she found a flicker. heartbeat 110bpm measuring 6wks1day which is 1 day behind. From initially devastation to utter disbelief in the space of four minutes. A tear or two were shed. I saw my FS who was happy with the results and offered me another scan in a couple of weeks just because. (I am going through the bulk billing IVF clinic in Sydney called Primary)
Feeling a little more optimism after today.
Fudge delighted to hear you are pregnant officially,
Killarneygirl - big congratulations, those numbers are great! X
Killarneygirl way to go! Congratulations!
Would have been better had the sonographer kept her comments to herself for a while to save you the initial heart attack!
