Yes, can we get over it! Some IVF babies are fresh, some are frozen, some were SETs and some DETs. I really believe at the end of the day if an embryo is going to become a baby, it will regardless of day or transfer, number of transferred embryos and fresh/frozen status.
For what it's worth, my fresh, 3day single embryo son is healthy as an ox and very very intelligent. He tells me my uterine environment was just fine at transfer!
Totally agree with the last couple of posts! My day 2 fresh transfer daughter was born full term, not low birth weight & is completely happy & healthy 2 year old!
I don't think this thread has anymore space for negativity and it's not fair to scare those doing fresh tranfers, particularly when a lot of those who are doing them are first time ivf'ers.
I'm happy to add that my beautiful and very healthy 17 month old is the result of a fresh transfer. I had a text book pregnancy and birth, no complications. I'm also not against frozen at all since if I have a #2, it will be a from a frozen embryo. I just wanted to reassure our ladies having fresh transfers
@Ruby16 thanks for the info! I just read a discussion online about the book. It sounds really interesting. Did you end up following the immunity protocol the doctor does at his clinic? I wonder if all those tests are available in Australia. Anyway, I'm about to order the book from book depository.
Oh and regarding my stage 5 endo. Well, I've had major "period pain" since I was a teenager so I got really good at taking painkillers and thought it was all normal. The pain did make me bed bound for about 2 days of every month (still does), but because I thought it was normal, I can't say it adversely affected my quality of life. My body used to be so good to me that my periods would only ever show up on a weekend, so I never really lost many work/Uni/school days. So yeah, I think my pain tolerance is pretty high but I understand that your severity of endo does not necessarily correlate with level of pain. You could have stage 2 and be completely keeled over with debilitating pain etc. I hope you're not in that pain category...
Yes please! Enough negativity!! That's not very nice to tell me to go away (@stillfuntryin) please don't speak to me if it's only going to be nasty!!! -That's called bullying.
I just shared research results. I'd ask that people take a step back and come from love not fear. As for my posts from research sites - Everyone may take it in whatever way they may and if that's negative that's your own interpretation. I simple share research to back my opinions were and showing they come from expert advice of my FS. Now you know why.
@mrsthomo very exciting your PUPO. What's your blood test day? I spoke to my clinic yesterday and they said that we can squeeze in another stim cycle this month if this one doesn't work. They apparently can put you on the pill to time it so you get your AF on dec so we r still covered by this yes safety net.
Wishing you all the best. I'm on day 7 on my tww and it's taking forever!

Well 8dp5dt and realistically it is over. I know of a couple who have had a positive at 9dp5dt but that is the minority. Just like ttc1981 my husband has (obstructive) azoospermia. We had an awesome egg haul, great fertilisation rates, 5 Frozen embies. I have now had 2x fet of grade a hatching blastocysts. Now I am extremely upset about wtf is happening. Nothing like Tanej78, I honestly don't know how you have kept going love. Nothing in this journey is set.
I don't know how I can do this to us again. Husband has just left to "go out" with no explanation. I know he is taking it hard. I know we have 3 left. I know that we are very fortunate compared to so many others. I don't even want to use them. I can't do this another 3 times.....
As for me my journey has just hit another rock bottom and I don't know where all the pieces are to put me back together right now. By next week I will be seeking another transfer if there is time before Xmas.
Is anyone here in Melbourne that might have some advice about fs that specialises in immune issues? Wouldn't have a clue if I have any, not tested as we were diagnosed with male infertility. Told we had a fantastic chance of conceiving if we could get the sperm.
I don't want to waste the other embies but at the same time I want them used up so the journey is over one way or another.....
What a downer for a Sunday morning hey!
Please show me your bfp's ladies!!!
Aww I so sorry to read of your dissapointment &sunny79 xx hugs to you. Maybe your hubby is blaming himself and doesn't know how to handle that. I don't really have any advice but just sending hugs your way and hope that the next FET is the one for you xx
@sunny79 I'm so sorry. It's such a hard, challenging journey. Take the time to deal with this cycle (chocolate, wine & crappy movies - think Twilight series - helped me) & when you're ready make your next plans. When are you having your blood test? Big hugs, be kind to yourself, xx
