@faithandhopellove good luck today at the docs – I’m hanging out for your update. Has your bleeding completely stopped now? @Blossom74 I’m 8 weeks. I have come to the conclusion that this waiting is far, far worse than any tww I have ever been on. The last few years of my life have been flying by, yet these few weeks are taking foreverrrrrr... I just need to get through the next 4 weeks so I can breathe easy. The odds have NEVER worked in my favour so I’m just expecting something to go wrong – especially now that I’ve had some bleeding (which has thankfully stopped). After seeing a HB you have what – a 5% chance of miscarriage? – well I’ve been in that 5% twice now already. At 41 there is maybe a 1% chance of down syndrome – again, I’ve been that 1%. After 8 weeks you have about a 3% chance of miscarriage – well…… hopefully I’m not going to defy the odds again. The sooner these next 4 weeks are over the better. @Corbes, I’m sending you some strength to wait until Sat to poas. Sounds like good symptoms so far though so I have a good feeling for you. @Tahli My two on board now were both B3AA. Regarding 1 or 2, you have been adamant all along about 1 and you’ve seen the stats on the ‘egg donation in CT’ thread – of about 15 pregnancies, aren’t there about 11 sets of twins? I know if I were you I’d be tempted due to the time, effort and money to go with two for a higher chance of success, but how would you go with three children? If you can manage that, then go for it. Also, why couldn’t you leave 1 embie from SD1 and move onto the SD2 embies if it comes to that? If you end up going for a third trip (heaven forbid) you would want to go with the highest chance of success and that is SD2 by the sounds of it. Just my two cents worth - in the end, only you know the answer and either way, it's all a big gamble, so I would ask - do you feel lucky punk? Well? Do ya?
Good luck for transfer !!
@Tahli my ocd would make me transfer two. Finish the year off with a bang. Imo twins would be difficult but not beyond you. And only for the first 2 years then they are actually easier so people tell me. Lol im sure you will know when its time. Not sure how old your ds is but im sure he could help with basics and he might like that.
@Corbes ive got nothing really ive had two nights of night sweats....probably menopause im just praying for no AF tbh. I go from yep this could be it to i need a frucking miracle.
Hi everyone else i hope you all have a fabulous day.
@JulieMalooley thinking of you hope all is well.
infinity888 I don't even know if I'll bother going for a scan this week now. Maybe I should....
Hang in there, not long now until you should be getting your BFP !

@Tahli, the girls have given you fab advice and have presented both sides of the coin for you to ponder. I am going to be a fence sitter on this 1 vs 2 emby debate. My opinion is that you need to listen to your heart. Ask yourself, in a perfect world, what would you have asked for? A baby? Or twins? Throw the logistics out of the equation - travel costs, D1 v D2, time restraints, because they are irrelevant in the big scheme of things. Make your choice based on what you feel in your gut is the right thing do. Instinct is rarely wrong.
@JulieM, this is the thing with IVF. We are forever faced with odds and the stress of them can be quite debilitating. I am reading the most interesting book at the moment called "Misconceptions" and it is changing the way I think about conception and pregnancy. I really recommend it. But moving on, I don't think there is EVER a time I wouldn't be stressing about things if I were pregnant. Once you've lost one baby you lose the joy and innocence of pregnancy. Sad but true. It's nice to think that "When I get to xxx weeks I'll be able to stop worrying" but it just doesn't work that way. Even when you've finally delivered your babies safely into the world, you, like everyone else, will spend night after night staring at them while they sleep to make sure they don't stop breathing! It is the nature of the beast I think! Anyway, for peace of mind I'd be going off for a scan, but that is me and you have every right to make a different choice. I am sure all will be well, either way
@Infinity and @Corbes - are we POAS today lovelies? I am crossing everything and throwing around for the both of you.
@greenlady, any news of fertilisation rates yet love?
A big hello to everyone else. Thinking of you all, of course.
AFM, working from home today, plus I have to call our real estate agents as our sink and toilet are starting to back up. Sigh. At least being in a rental we don't have to pay for the repairs!
The kitten and puppy are doing well. Pup is especially happy as I bought him two marrow bones in an attempt to keep him entertained. I gave him 1 two days ago and he looked at me like I'd shot the Pope - he didn't know what it was, danced around it, and then sat across the yard from it staring at it. This morning I went over and he had eaten every morsel of meat and marrow off it, so he must have figured it out! Anyway, he has another one this morning so he seems happy.
Kitty is very cute. She is a manx - no tail - and still tiny. I picked her up for pats but she wriggles and squirms until I let her go. She is trying to get hold of Pup's bone, lol. Fiesty little fluffy, she is! I am definitely going to have words with the owner when she comes back - I will just have to choose my words carefully. That's hard, because I am fuming mad about it, and when I get mad I tend to let loose. Must control my anger....

Im not working today ive got a couple of appts later on but im childfree so planning on tidying up house and getting things done without a toddler in tow.
@Blossom74 fx your neighbor gets the message loud and clear because its ridiculous how long its been. It breaks my heart. I'm so glad they have you. Im at work today on lite duties its going to drive me nuts. I hate office work. At least im not lifting anything or exposed to any trauma while my little embie burrows in. Lol. I wont poas for a while now i know trigger is gone. Tbh i cant bring myself to do it especially since i have to work all week.
Oh my gosh I miss logging in for a day and there is 132 posts to read!
@JulieMalooley and @faithhopeandlove I was told bed rest and an extra pessary, stop clexane for 2 days when you have a bleed. I had some spitting at about 9 weeks, but mine was part of the second sack coming away. It is really common for bleeding in the early days tho.
I can't remember who was asking about supplements after transfer but dr m told me to stop coq10 after transfer.
@Summer I'm sorry Saturday was tough for you. But know that everything you feel is completely normal. Don't stress about a cpl of glasses of wine and some chocolate, it's nit the end of the world!
@JulieMalooley you used de so your ratio for downs is much lower than if you were to use your own eggs. It didn't stop me from stressing out about it, but when we got the results it was a massive number and nothing to worry about. You just tell the genetic counsellor the age of the donor and they use that instead of your age to calculate the results.
Hi to everyone else, sorry I was awol, I got up to watch the World Cup final and it left me wrecked yesterday so I slept/spent most of the day in bed😜
