@Fudge09 best wishes with your embies and sorry to hear about the ghastly time you've been having.
Gagingi - I think he is. I don't know what to do. I know if I switch I will have to go on a long wait list and that puts me off changing. I have an untested embie but no doubt it's abnormal - it wasn't hatched enough on morning of day 6 to be biopsied so was behind my other three in development. If two good grade ones turn out abnormal I don't think I've any chance with the untested one. Having said that when I draw a line in the sand I may transfer it rather than die wondering I guess. This time I was on menopur rather than Gonal f and I think on the whole the cycle was better as fertilisation rate was about 10% better.
Its always a relief to have EPU - You just want to get them out physically but for me it's also because of paranoia about ovulating before EPU!
Welcome back fudge. I had a pretty crappy year too but it ended on a good note. I hope yours does too.
Green lady you never know with blasts. Sometimes they look crap but are actually normal. I think I remember Bongley saying her son started off as a poor grade blast.
Well, I've caught up on all the posts I missed while I was away
@Charlie74, congratulations on your three successful embies! That is a fantastic result and you must be so thrilled.
@Gagingi, welcome to the group! I'm sure you will find great support from the lovely ladies here.
@Fudge09, welcome back to you too! Glad you could join us all
@greenlady, I am so very sorry your embies didn't make it. It must be so very disappointing to get such wonderful numbers retrieved, and then to have it come down to nothing. Damn getting older. Sending you big hugs hon
@midnite01, am I right in thinking you have another BT tomorrow love? If so, good luck and I hope it brings you some clarity either way.
Hello to everyone else!
AFM, I'm absolutely knackered. Lots of driving and a full day of work in between has left me feeling drained. Plus as you know it's TTOTM so I'm usually a bit 'meh with that anyway. Will be heading off to bed shortly for a well-earned rest. Mind you, I looked out the window before and it looks almost like a full moon, so that usually doesn't bode well for me. I sleep poorly at the best of times.
Tomorrow I have a few hours of housework to do, followed by an afternoon of paperwork. At least I'll get the weekend off I'll have to do a boat-load of exercise over the weekend to recover from the massive amount of pizza I ate tonight. I kid you not, I really excelled myself. And I've been doing so well with my food until now. Such a shame.....
greenlady Yes, I was just about to chime in. He was a very early blast on day 5. Can't see that it/he would have made it to hatching by day 6. It's a long shot but that's what you're looking for. I used to get good numbers but poor quality embryos. I'd pull 8 to 10 eggs and then 2 blasts with one transferred and the other in the bin usually. Their criteria for freezing (so they told me) was it had to be expanding by day 6.
