@Billie2 sorry for those long sentences! I'm on my phone so I can only see a few lines at a time. 😶
Hey ladies, do you mind if I join? I'm just booking on today for our first FET since the birth of my daughter. She is 11 months old currently. Just catching up on a bit of the thread, I'm a needle phobe so it was hard doing a full cycle. Thank god this is just an artificial one! 😁😁😁 I used to use emla cream for the orgalutran needles as they hurt like a mofo! But the gonal f wasn't so bad, I didn't use numbin cream for that. Also my hubby did all my needles hehehe
@mrsthomo, good luck for tomorrow i xant wait to hear when your fet is and i so hope you get to give out your cookies for christmas it would be a lovely present for everyone. And thanks about the job im just hoping they start giving me hours next week, i have Christmas shopping to do n bills to pay n ofcourse the ivf.
Welcome to the new ladies i hope your cycles go well n easy for you.
Just wondering guys from day 1 to day 3 or 5 what was the survival rate for your embryos? Just trying to figure it out... I asked the doctor why he didn't get that many eggs when we was so worried about ohss and we only ended up with 7 eggs with 5 being ICSI/IVF... Thought there would be more of a response so just wondering what others responses were
ttc1981 My first EPU a few years ago, I had 29 collected and 7 6day blasts made it to freezer (ohss meant I couldn't do fresh transfer)
September EPU I had 14 collected, 8 fertilised, day 5 I had one fresh transfer and one biopsied and frozen.
The remaining 6 were pushed to the next day because they weren't ready for biopsy yet... Only 1 survived which was biopsied and frozen.
Fresh tfr was BFN, out of the 2 frozen 1 was tested normal, the other had double chromosomes...
I'm PUPO with my one PGD normal and waiting to test... We did PGD as I've had 6mc & one ectopic and only one of the 7 blasts from 2 years ago made it to BFP but failed anyways...
Hope that helps xxx
We have chosen not to do any testing only because the doctor said the only medical condition that could be an issue can't be tested (I have gene clotting disorder but it's known so treatable) I just hope at least 2 survive so we can at least get one back and freeze one x
@ttc1981 - my first epu I only got six eggs .. All six lasted to blasto stage day five .. I transferred two fresh and only one more was able to be frozen on day 6. Am currently pg with my fresh transfers your numbers are fine!!! It's quality not quantity !!!! It only takes one fingers crossed !
