    So much happening in this thread!! I'm so sorry I haven't been able to do personals, I am cheering everyone on from the sidelines though and sending happy thoughts and baby dust by the bucketload. If little bubba's made it by the amount of people wishing it so, then @leyshoja yours would be a certainty - I think it's too early too, so I'll be stalking from afar tomorrow to see if that BFP has come up!

    I stopped all my meds today. I had a healing session here in Bali and realised how sick I've been since going this medical route - I know I had to try it so I'd have no regrets in the future - but it has been a disaster for me.

    With every intervention since December - the clomid, low FSH, high stim cycles and all the supplements and drugs I've never had more than one egg anyway, and my body is now in distress. I don't believe this is going to be the way for me to make a baby. If I'd gotten a few eggs last time or something I might have been more inclined to keep going, but I can't see the point. My FSH went from 5 up to 23 which tells me that the meds are screwing with my system.

    I did manage to fall pregnant naturally all those times, so I'm heading back that direction while we look into DE (or stopping), and if I do fall pregnant again at least I know I have the protocols up my sleeve to try to prevent miscarriage. The idea was to get me pregnant again quickly so we could see if the protocols worked and I could carry to term - but it just hasn't happened. So I'm in a process of grieving as I thought IVF would give me better results that trying naturally and it just hasn't. But also I have relief that I don't have to torture my body any more and I can stop all the nasty drugs and get healthy again.

    Sorry for the downer when so many are at a very hopeful stage! I have my fingers crossed for everyone and am following along even though I can't post very often.

    @Leisylou it's good you are listening to your body, these ivf drugs do knock you around.

    I know quite a few ladies with immune issues that are able to get pregnant naturally it's just they need the meds to keep a hold of the bub, so it may not be over yet xxxx
    @midnite01 I find out feet rates today🙏

    @Leisylou that all makes a lot of sense. You gave it your best shot with ivf. It doesn't sound like it has helped you much. I hope you fall preggers naturally again. (well I hope we all do!)

    @leyshoja I can understand your worries, I hate the way all of the stress is compounded by the cost and hassle. Going through genea is so damn expensive, I'm wondering if I should have swallowed the delay and extra hassle at RPA. I don't think we can afford to do this again but at RPA we could have done a few cycles. I guess I will have a better idea of our chances after next week.....

    Thanks so much BIB! They will call me today with the transfer time but I'm not sure I'll get an update as they don't like to look at them too much. I'll let you guys know later 😊

    @beckymae They will usually check them on Day 2 so just ask how your emby is going when they ph you Luv. 2-4 cells is what they will be hoping to see😊

    @Charlie74 17 follicles is fantastic Luv especially if they are growing pretty evenly😊

    The lining may be a little thin atm but will thicken as your E2 levels rise. It usually grows by 1mm a day @ should be between 8-13mm's preferably for transfer (it will keep growing between EPU @ transfer as well).

    Here's a shameless Copy@ Paste with more info:

    There is some debate about "how thin is too thin", as well as to "how thick is too thick".

    In general, 8-13 mm is good, less than 6 is potentially a problem, and greater than 15 or so might possibly reduce chances for successful pregnancy.

    During IVF treatment, the uterine lining starts at about 3mm thick at the end of the menstrual period. After estrogen levels rise sufficiently, the lining of the uterus thickens by about 1mm each day during IVF.

    There is medication that can help thicken the lining as well like Progynova. My protocol from my FS included taking Vit E for the uterine lining.
