Waiting to exhale (21-11-2015)
Wow its been busy
@GTBB n @Lexy good luck with your little embryos i hope its good news
@MrsSMS yes they kept trying to tell me no as well until i put my foot down n said they are my embryos and im the one paying you haha but yes i did have to sign a waiver cause im going against what they want
@mrsthomo congratulations on being pupo just think you will know if your little one has stuck before i start lol good to hear the acupuncture helped
@Ruby well.....lol im sure its all worth it
Hope the tww and the people awaiting news on there embryos hear good news snd the wait isnt driving you crazy.
Day 3 - 16 eggs are still going strong so 3 have dropped off. She said between day 3-5 is the largest drop off rate do see how we go. What were everyone else's experience with this stage ?
@Tanej78 good on you for getting back in there and giving it yet another go! I hope this one sticks for you. I really appreciate your Ivf knowledge, it sounds like you've been through a lot and whilst you are right that it's different for everyone, I really do like learning from others' experiences.
Wow @Leachpeach sounds like a great scan result, 30mm geez that's a good healthy follies you have there! Good luck for Monday too.
Congrats on being PUPO @mrsthomo, I hope you have a stress free 2ww. As for my ovulation, it's more of a matter of when it happens. It will just be good to get to that point so I have my transfer booked and can then get really excited. Normal for me so is an ovulation on day 16 so I wasn't expecting anything with yesterday being day 11. With the way my last cycle was, ovulation could still be a while away. I've got time to wait but don't want to get impatient. Hoping I'm closer to knowing something in a week's time.
@Billie2 sorry to hear that you've been feeling unwell. This hot weather wouldn't have helped at all so thankfully it's a little cooler today.
Well said @sunny79 I hope you get a positive test real soon. Fingers crossed for you.
Thanks @Ruby16 I had a good laugh at your post. Oh my goodness that would have been cold
@RubyGirl sounds like it could be a possible side effect. Our hormones rule a lot of our body and how we are feeling and everyone reacts different. When I was pregnant with my DD, I used to get so thirsty. I started taking a glass of water to bed as I was sick of getting up and down all night, I'd wake up with such a dry mouth. After a couple of weeks, everything went back to normal. I do remember thinking it was weird that the time.
Hi @Maxwellsmum thanks for posting. I hope you get a clear result soon and let's hope it's the one we are all after!
I hope your embys keep growing well @GTBB sorry not sure if you've said but when are you expecting to transfer?
Good luck today @woof5105 I hope your transfer went well!
@Lexy123 16 is fantastic!! I've heard the same, apparently day 4 is a tough day for embryos. We didn't lose any from day 3- day 5 but we did a fresh transfer on day 5 and when it came to freezing them, they discarded the early blast since it was lagging so we lost that one overall. Good luck!
On a side note, I'm really enjoying reading everyone's perspectives!
I know this journey is different for everyone but I think that overall we've all just recognised that there are so many different ways of doing this that there truly isn't just one answer or a one size fits all approach. Everyone just has to so what they think is best, with the guidance of their specialist. It sounds to me that everyone is confident with their approach (apart from those who haven't felt heard by the FS but it sounds like everyone is overcoming that) so I'd like to think we can all read up on other's views and take whatever we like from it without taking anything to heart since we all know we are doing what is best for us.
We all aren't going to agree, otherwise the world would be a boring place. I just think on the whole it's mostly been a healthy discussion but I'm pretty open with the thoughts of others.
Also as some of you have said, some of us are stressed, frustrated, hormonal and willing this to work and putting more into this than we ever have before. What people have typed can be misconstrued and written not how it's intended. Wherever possible, I'm just trying to read each post with the best intentions as I don't really think anyone is trying to purposely hurt or offend.
We are all here for the same reasons and usually when you join these forums, it means you are happy to discuss all angles. We can all just keep scrolling.
i really just hope that people stick around. I'm not even PUPO yet and I know others who are still cycling would love to gain the support that they have given to others whilst they have been waiting. I for one, hope to be here until we've all had a chance to cycle.
@Ruby16 - hehehe! Thanks for the laugh! I've just changed from pessaries that are kept in the fridge to ones that aren't & I definitely find that the ones not in the fridge are messier! The things we do ...
@Annerley thank you... Xx
