    How bloody annoying & frustrating for you Luv!!😐

    The lead follicle is growing albeit slowly so fingers crossed that's a good sign they won't cancel on you??

    Perhaps they'll increase your FSH dose again??

    I agree there needing to be more research, but having done health research I can imagine the ethics nightmare that would be, and I for one wouldn't sign up for a control group where I may or may not get the treatment, so I don't think it will happen. Thank god for Wazza!
    I also wouldn't necessarily want to be randomised to the control group - UNLESS - being on a trial meant the cycle of IVF was free.

    But the very frustrating point is that the treatment protocols are so carefully documented and the outcomes so obvious, and patients so closely monitored that all the data could be collated across IVF Australia and analysed retrospectively!

    And I don't understand why it isn't!

    @Gagingi -I agree it's strange you weren't offered PICSI before - I was offered the HA ICSI from the start - its an extra, but worth it to me.

    a hatching blast is what you need! Hopefully you will get an early Xmas present!

    Thanks for my boarding call @BlondeinBrisvgas and for the messages of a safe and successful trip girls. All 3 of my flights were delayed and I finally arrived in Cape Town over 3 hours late. The lady who runs the b&b were I'm staying had been waiting for me all that time. She didn't receive my texts updating her. It was an exhausting trip, more so than the others. Different carrier, route & flight times.
    Its daybreak and I'm waiting for everyone to wake so I can start my day. I desperately want to shower but don't want to wake anyone, then a lovely breaky followed by a 1.5hr massage. The massage is my chance to put the lead of the FET behind me and immerse myself in positive affirmations about being ready to receive my 'babies' with love.
    Im laying in the same bed I struggled to get out of to get to the clinic to find out if any of my embryos had fertilised and made it to day 3 back in September. You girls rallied around to support me when I was a shaking single woman of a mess and got me into a taxi and to the clinic.
    And now here I am ready to start on SD2s embryos...the strong ones. Please thaw well tomorrow little poppets. If all goes well transfer will be Monday 8pm (Aus time) then a mad dash to the airport to fly home again.

    Great result @Sue77!
    Hang in there @Bongley and good luck for Tuesday. @Tahli how's CT? Hope you made it ok, we left Johanesberg yesterday just as big storm was coming, we were sitting on the runway looking at lightning in the distance! We were also delayed so maybe that had an effect on all flights going in and out.

    @Bongley what's the aim of the game hun? Does that lead follicle have to be at say, 18mm to proceed to a FET on the same day, or are they looking for your estrogen to hit a certain level. You must be so flipping frustrated at this point.
    I remember when my lead follicle was only growing by .5mm per day, if that, LB wouldn't increase my FSH dose either. On the First cycle I did as I was told. On the second cycle I upped it without LBs knowledge. I seem to recall BiB encouraging from the sidelines. Not that for one minute am I suggesting you do that. You've got too much riding on that one follicle and you're sooooo close. Big hugs.
