    Good idea. Keeping your options open sounds like a plan

    And before anyone says it, I know it's still 'early' and there may be a BFP at 13DPO or 14DPO but the odds are really slipping away and that hatching blastocyst really should have implanted and been pumping out HCG by now. It could also be a late implanter but meh, I've heard that one too many times. Very happy to be wrong this weekend but I think its time to plan for the next one.

    After last months BFN I knew that we were going to be left in this situation of going down to the last embryo Just want it over and done with now so we can move on and stop getting my hopes up only to be ripped away every few weeks. I'll speak to my FS next week and see what he suggests we do, I suspect he will suggest a natural FET cycle. We have very limited funds by now so we just can't throw any more money after it.

    Thanks for listening gals.
    Ah that's crap @Bongley (I'm now seated having intralipids so can read and type) still time I know but you must be getting despondent alright. Have you thought about pred/aspirin/clexane etc when you do your last embie?

    Sorry, somebody asked me, I think it was @Tahli?, about the qty of intralipids and I forgot to reply. CT suggest one a few days prior and one on a BFP and that's it. Wazzas protocol is every 10 days until 12 weeks but I think that's overkill as they seem to throw the kitchen sink at everything. I'm not sure how much they suggest beforehand as it was too late for me by then. I'm going to do it about every 2.5 weeks and am ALSO doing the high dose fish oil so a double whammy. That only means the one before transfer and 3-4 after transfer. My last one will be around 10.5 or 11 weeks so I'll check with dr m if I should do another one after that. @Bongley if you can't get pred I can send you some. I have heaps.

    @infinity888 this must be so hard for you, I've never heard of anyone going ahead with an EPU knowing there is chance that ovulation has already happened, that's got to be doing your head in really, really hope you get your eggs. Let us know how it goes

    @Corbes, your feelings are quite valid and you have every right to be angry. This journey is hard enough without having someone who should be your biggest supporter fighting against you as well.

    IVF places a huge stress on a couple's relationship. I think you either bond together or it breaks you apart.

    None of us are exempt from that. I am lucky in that my DH, who is significantly older than I am, has the patience of a saint. Otherwise I'm sure he would have up and left long ago. I am a fire-y type of gal - thank you, European heritage! - and like nothing more to hash everything out a thousand times over at great volume. He just sits and listens.

    The only thing I can suggest is to try and keep the communication lines open, even if it does mean 'disagreeing' from time to time. The only thing more destructive than fighting, in my humble opinion, is keeping things to yourself and letting them fester - a certain recipe to make a big fireball!

    Perhaps you might be able to get some guidance from a counsellor? I have no idea what your DH is thinking, but maybe he has some fears or worries that need to be addressed before you proceed. Like I said, guys have the strangest thoughts, and you just never know what is going through his mind. And love, if you're questioning your relationship also, then perhaps you might like to talk to someone about your worries too?

    I don't know, I have a history of bad relationships a mile long (excluding the present one, of course.) I am no-one to be giving advice. They do say though that a problem shared is a problem halved, so perhaps counselling might be an option.

    Hugs for you @Corbes. I hope things settle down and you find yourselves on the same path again soon.


    Blossom

In the past my eggs have been obviously awful so this is new ground for me.
    @Corbes why is DH not DTD with you???
    It cost us about $55 to move one embryo about 3 years ago.
    Sorry it's a BFN Bongley it really sucks x
