    @leyshoja would meditation help? I contacted a lady in the UK who made me some bespoke tracks that I listened to before I went to Hawaii and they really did help.

    As for the bloat, it ain't gonna end when you get the bfp so you should try and embrace it now😜 I feel like a big fat cow at the moment, the pred has puffed my face, I haven't been to the gym in 2 months and I feel blah, but I wouldn't change it for the world. It will all be worth it when I hold that bubba in my arms. Just keep your eye in the next step - it's a means to getting your bfp. I know it's hard though. And our dh have no idea what to say to us!
    @Charlie74 I am a 28 day cycle girl. Every single cycle after a stim I can blow out to 35 days sometimes, I would feel like af was going to arrive at any minute, but I would be anything up to a week late. Every single time.

    I used the essential baby egg timer to track af, and also had s spreadsheet going so I could track average cycle length and the differences between stim, after stim and natural cycles. But hey I've been doing this for 3.5years and tried everything! Funny thing was, the whole temp thing never worked for me!

    @Krysta74, PGD is pre-implantation genetic diagnosis. Which tests for genetic issues like cystic fibrosis etc.. There's also PGS preimplantation genetic screening which is wot we did. It tests for aneuploidys such as trisomy 21 (Down's syndrome) that may occur due to 'advanced maternal age'... I hate that term.. Makes me feel like I'm 60 yrs old!! Lol!! So we got our results back which told us our Frozen embie is normal. I guess it saves u both time, money & emotional stress to know right off the bat if an embie is no good.[/QUOTE]

    Oh, I see. I wonder why I was not offered that option? Or is it something I should be requesting?

    Either way, I'm so pleased your tests came up positive.

    Krysta

Who knows though, love. It might be a case of lucky last for you - you do hear of that quite often. have a sprinkling of baby dust, on me

    Whilst you (just) trump me on the age card (I'm 41) my DH is winning by a country mile over your DP! He is staring down the barrel of his 52nd birthday, and whilst I suppose he has concerns about his age, he would also know that should we ever be so lucky () his DW would take care of the bulk of the baby-raising quite happily, being over 10 years younger than he is!

    Lol, the reverse will be happening in this household - I'll be racing back off to work asap and DP will be working very part time. I'm the big earner in this household so it makes sense and he will be a much more patient parent than myself anyway. He's a plasterer so its not like his skills will become redundant even if he stopped work for a few years, but I'm in I.T. and we all know how fast that stuff moves !
    I don't actually 'know' that I'm ready to give up yet, and heaven knows I've already picked out donor no. 3, but right now I'm just so over it. DP has already agreed on forking out another $15-20000 for another full donor cycle so who's kidding who, that's what we will be doing groaaaannnnnnnnn....

    @Krysta74 Very, very few women would get a BFP if they tested at 6dpt5dt. If you did, you'd most likely would only see the shadow of a line there.

    If you want to have a go...then try not to drink too much & keep your legs closed for a good 3 hrs or so ( as long as possible).😉😁

    If not...just test first thing in the morn. Bear in mind that a BFP may not show up until Fri/Sat ok??

    Sending lots of Babydust, crossing everything & saying prayers for you Luv!!!😊

    And @Krysta74 I was never offered PGD testing either. They were happier taking all the money off me on those wasted cycles I believe, rather than giving me a helping hand and not wasting the time transferring dud embies.

    PS I'm sooo going to get that recipe app.
    And BiB your CSI comment made me laugh and wake up E.
    PPS - butterfly39 used to call crinone the ***** sticks... I think it's apt for any type of progesterone though.

    The app is $2-$3 but so worth it. I will never be game to throw out my paper copies of recipes though, just in case someday the app is redundant, or no longer works for some reason.

    Krysta I was only offered PGD after we lost our baby at 26 weeks due to Trisomy 13. Also I was 43 years old when I went back for our very last shot at IVF. So our previous history and advancing maternal age (pppfffttttt....) our FS felt we would be wasting our $$$$ by NOT doing it.

    Also I tend to get faint BFP 12dpo so tomorrow should be OK to start testing..... but please use First Response as they are the best.
