    @Charlie74 ah jeeze that's a tough decision to make! Can you explain to your FS your dilema and/or can you tell them that you definitely don't want to do a fresh transfer? The risk is that you won't have anything to put back at all. However if embryos aren't good enough to be frozen by day 6 then in all likelihood they wouldn't make it anyway........ Or cop the cost

    @Charlie74 that is a tough question because I think I will be in the same boat soon. I asked Dr M on Monday if I should wait till he has all my blood tests back to do a stim cycle, or if we can do one next month and pgd/freeze embryos. He said it was fine to do a stim next month and he wouldn't recommend a fresh transfer for me anyway as the IVF meds would mess with my immune system and make implantation hard or result in a chemical.

    My husband and I were discussing it and if they aren't good enough to pgd we would ask them to freeze and if we only had one and they wanted to transfer it on day 3, then we would just go ahead and transfer without doing an immune protocol. Like Bongley said, I wonder if the embryo would be any good if it was about to fall over on day 3.

    I am also waiting on my pathology slips for all my blood tests. Either they are using a carrier pigeon to get them from Sydney to Melbourne or they are still sitting on Gwyneth's desk. If they haven't turned up by tomorrow, I am going to phone her to see what's going on.

Also off to get some adult colouring books at lunch time!

    Hope all is well out there this morning with everyone. @Tahli when do you fly out luv?
    Good luck tomorrow @Corbes !! Think sticky thoughts

    @Charlie74, maybe just go on the prednisone and aspirin for now and do the high dose fish oil in lieu of intralipids ?

    @JulieMalooley You're only on a really low dose of Prednisone aren't you?? Lower than what was recommended??

    ETA- High ANA's are a miscarraige risk.

    No not lower, they recommended 10mg and I'm on 12.5 - half a 25. Thats what my FS and CFC (and Dr M) all suggested and they knew about the ANA and weren't particularly concerned about it - other than it being an early indicator of lupus or similar..

    Hi ladies. Bib this what my fn said today which is different from what I'm reading on here. Eeek! Fn-You definitely cannot start crinone till two days after OPU as this directly affects the endometrial lining synchronising with the age of the embryo. The two must be in sync in order for the embryo to implant correctly. You should also only start clexane from embryo transfer day onward, as we do not want to thin your blood before you are having any invasive medical procedures due to the increase risk of bleeding.

    @Caesardust Ok, then go with what she's recommending. The Crinone will be fine starting it 2 days after EPU and the Clexane gets into your system pretty quickly. You can always stay on the aspirin instead and just start the Clexane as per the FN's directive.

    It's up to you Luv, but if in doubt, just go with what your Clinic recommends in regards to both of those things

    So when u say Dr M has u on12.5 of pred, do u mean Dr M in Syd? He has told me 15mg till transfer, then 20mg, then 25mg if bfp. But then I've also got the thyroid antibodies, the high Ana & NKC (although not terrible bad apparently). I guess maybe it depends on how many of the immune issues you have?

    So I wonder if I should just stick with LB's recommendation of 10mg starting day 1 then? Plus aspirin & fish oil like you've suggested..
    No it's dr moorhouse, wazzas offsider in Brisbane. None of the Drs suggested increasing the dose after BFP in fact two of them said stop the pred on a BFP.
    Taking a high dose of fish oil you just need to make sure it's good quality ie no heavy metal buildup, and the one recommended by the chemist was called 'triple strength omega boost' and it has 900mg combined of epa and dha. I'm taking 4 a day plus 1 tablespoon of a liquid (cheaper) fish oil so maybe 4-5000mg? I couldn't find an actual recommended dose anywhere and none of the Drs knew either so I just doubled the max dose roughly.
    I'm not overly worried about the ANA (or at least I wasn't) because they embies are jumping ahead in leaps and bounds and I think if they were being attacked in any way they wouldn't be going so well. Friday's u/s will tell I suppose. If they aren't looking bang on target I might start stressing..
