@Corbes: That sucks you over stimmed last time, thats my biggest fear! :/
This is my second stim (First one was back in 2010, resulted in DS 3.5 and a BFN on my only frosty). Been such a big break feels like my first time all over again
Am on 10ui of Lucrin and now 150ui of Gonalf, will trigger with 250ui of Ovidrel which is new....last time I did Pregnyl so thinking the pen will be less stressful than mixing vials...well I hope! Day 6 bloods for me on Friday, guessing your Thursday?
Nice to have a buddy! Haha
Welcome @Simsim84! I'm in Melbourne and I see David Wilksinson at City Fertility Centre. It's an incredible clinic, the nurses are so lovely and really helpful. David is just amazing. We are currently 5 weeks pregnant from our first IVF cycle.
@FiBub76 - I start bloods tomorrow so LH rise should be in a few days. Transfer will be five days after that - so should be towards the end of next week which is exciting!
Can't wait to get our little blasty on board!
@Simsim84 - I originally started at city fertility who were great, but did not have any luck there. I agree with A&S - David was my specialist too and he was really friendly and I did like him a lot - he did try his best for Us but I Found out Monash had much better facilities and so moved there.
If you have MFI or recurrent implementation failures or miscarriages, I would strongly recommend dr nick lolatgis. He's not the cheapest or 'warmest' specialist, but he is great at what he does and thinks outside of the box.
Lynn burmeister is supposed to be good for female issues, but has a long wait list from what I hear.
Best of luck with everything!

I don't know how you awesome ladies managed the waiting at every stage I give you all major hi fives ..
It's definitely the busy time of the month. Congratulations to everyone who has gone through EPU & transfer & I hope those in the 2WW are surviving!
AFM, I am now 8DP 2DT & feeling OK. My FS doesn't want me to test until next Monday as it was a 2 day emby he likes a full 14 day wait. Thankfully my DSD is out from the UK & keeping us busy. We've just been camping for the last few days -DD's first camping trip so that was fun. Not so fun, keeping the pessaries in the esky & doing the quick dash from the loos to the tent after insertion 😁Oh well, it's all worth it if it helps!
