    aha, that's making more sense. so the mitochondria is pretty involved in this then. I should have been wolfing down those coq10s! ha. is this happening on fert day or the days3-5 (which is why they often drop off then, & the scientist said these are the toughest days). this is good, now I have more questions for him next time. we made it to fert this time, I hope there was enough energy from me to continue on and spin properly!

    spin, little dna, spin. dance, dance in there
    (can't find a dance, so an exercise and a freaking out as my niece kept saying this last visit)

    Ha you're doing really well this cycle! Well I personally get a big drop off after day 3 as I heard that's when the embryo switches on it's own genome. The fertilisation thing happens on day 0. Others say the sperm has something to do with embryo behaviour after day 3, I don't believe that but hey I am not an embryologist.

    speaking of 'women rule' the same author did write another book where he talks about how the y-chromosome & sperm has been losing it's power over generations, and eventually there'll only be x's. (in many thousands of years) "adam's curse" I think it is. (I preferred the other book)

    ahh, yes I hope they continue to do well going forwards. this is my best cycle so far. not sure if it's the new meds/protocol (even with an extra ~1year age added on?) or after the cleanup post-appendix op. I have a feeling things were messed up for longer than I knew about/could feel pain. everything must be connected in there and it was pretty bad/toxic apparently which may have been building for a while. (guessing) I hope we get a good egg to transfer tomorrow and all being well frostie/s. am worried for the little petals - it's hard not knowing how they're going. I don't seem to have luck with implantation so that's the next major hurdle. a couple of times I think it's worked but it's always dropped off very quickly. so still being realistic - expecting the worst but hoping for the best. it's pretty amazing we created life 5 times, even if for a few days for 1 of them.

    Yeah the only gene on the Y chromosome is the gene for hairy ears!!! Ha ha they are nearly redundant!

    oops. I didn't know that. I just assumed there'd be more.

    Sorry have skipped over the last few posts but a naturopath suggested I take a tablet called bio pqq mitochondrial optimizer to help with egg quality. It didn't help me, but my eggs were duds.

    Also on the prednisolone and defects you need to increase calcium, magnesium and take megafol on top of your pregnancy multi.

    @tuxcat and @winsor all the best with your transfers today and fingers crossed you get some frosties.

    Blonde good luck with the hospital appointment today.

    Skyler and Winsor that was an informative conversation you had. Like you Skyler, I also wonder why people say the sperm takes over from day 3. I had a blighted ovum that was chromosonally normal. I was told it ran out of energy so I started looking into mitochondrial dna. Doesn't make me confident with pgd embies but we were trying to reduce miscarriage.

    Good luck today guys..
    Speaking of 'old eggs', I thought the biggest battle they faced (after chromosomes) is hatching from their thicker, harder shells at day 5 ?
    AFM, I still have really sore breasts 2 days after stopping all drugs. I keep thinking what if I have a reallllly late implanter and am actually UTD. As if. Still.... thinking about getting some more FRER. Somebody slap me.
    I've never been sore after stopping the drugs, in fact they've never been sore unless I've been pregnant. However, CFC do put us on mega doses compared to other clinics, so it could be that?
