    Hi ladies ive missed so much this morning. Congrats

    @winsor thats a great starting number fx for great fert rates tomorrow

    @leyshoja wow that is really uncool of dh but some mil have alot to answer for. My dh is now really good but when we first met oh he didn't even know how to work an automatic washing machine. No cooking cleaning etc and decided he was a bad husband if i had to work outside the home at all. Hahaha i hadn't studied my *** off for 3 yrs to give it up now. Any way 15yrs later and we are a well oiled machine and the house work and cooking is a 60/40 split which im happy with cause he mows the lawn always

    @Bongley i didn't realise it was only 60% with a pgd tested embryo. Only 4% untested i really didn't realise it was so low. Now im scared of my upcoming cycle i really don't have much chance do i. Ah well at least I will know i did all i could with this cycle even when it does fail

    @Tahli any news yet 25 from 28 perfect little day 3 embryos is my prediction lol

    @winsor that's great fx for great feet rates.

    Well I must have hit the jackpot with my dh. He does all the washing (folding and puts it away), vac, sweeping, dusting, lawns, takes the garbage out, changes the bed and will pick up groceries if needed. I generally decide what we will eat and prepare everything while he is in the shower, then he cooks it while I'm in the shower (this is the only way we eat at a decent hr with both of us working).

    I clean the bathrooms, do menu planning and most of the shopping, I know I have it good!

    Oh and he is renovating our house in the weekends too!

    It was hard for me when he first moved in though, he wasn't working (had just arrived from NZ) and I would come home to find he had, cleaned the windows, rearranged the furniture or once, had vacuumed my cobblestone courtyard! I thought it meant he thought I was dirty, he was thinking he was helping me out by doing stuff so I didn't have to - I told him I had never vacuumed the courtyard, nor would I ever think of doing it!

    Now I rejoice in the fact he does so much to help me out😜

    @infinity888 How old are you again?? I can tell you that the live birth rate (i.e "take home a baby from the hospital" rate) at QFG for a 40yr old woman (which I was at the time) using her OE's were 11 point something %. My FS's personal %'s were a little bit higher than that.

    Even though the odds may be against you, it doesn't automatically mean your Cycle will be a bust!! You make it to transfer, then you're in with a chance

    @Bongley Did you FS say what "red flags"?? I'm just wondering if it's worth ruling those red flags out first before having any more transfers??

    @leyshoja Apologies if I offended you with assuming your DP was a lazy bugger...my bad Totally understand why he's not housetrained

    When it comes to household chores, my DP's only semi trained Although he can cook a few very basic meals, I don't let him near the stove because he ends up using every pot and pan in the house and making a huge bloody mess!!

    He can do the basics like dishes, vacuuming, washing the clothes etc but if I want anything done, I have to ask him to do it usually (though he does take the clothes off the line for me unprompted). Yes, using his initiative to do the "domestic drudgery" just doesn't occur to him.

    If it's something that he has a vested interest in like his garden etc then he's highly motivated!!! I do most of the "domestic drudgery" plus the groceries and he does all the outside stuff plus grows some of our produce for us to eat which kind of makes things a bit more even in my eyes

    Hubbie is pretty good I get cuppa in bed every morning he often gets up to miss in the night and will get her up on the weekends he will often do washing lawns etc outside and some meals at night. He will often clean shower and toilet do the rubbish and on a sunday do shopping list for the week. I often do vacuum washing on my days off and we do food shopping together on a sunday.

    I may have forgotten to mention that I MOW ~!!!! Its a little weird because he actually moved into my house, so kind of feels like it was my responsibility but come on man - give me a break.
    Don't be silly BIB. I make no excuses for him, and if it looks lazy to other people, then too bad so sad DP. His Dad is up him all the time about letting me mow at which point I point my finger at him and say 'I blame you for this!'.

    No, that was my term , I can't remember what he said. Just that if two normal tested embryos didn't make it then there was probably some other issue or problem. I am at the end of the road with this stuff, either one of these three embryos makes it before christmas or I am done. No more energy or money for more potions, pills, scratches, dildocams or appointments. Which I am happy with right now, done one way or the other. Off IVF island for good!

    "See ya stinktown!" to quote one Homer Simpson.
    @infinity888 yeah, I think my clinic was giving me a 10-15% chance at 40. I just remember thinking 1 in 10 wasn't too bad if you could get some cycles under your belt.
