@Sue77 fabulous news! Although I understand your reticence, I would get good numbers (though not as good as 20!) and they would shrink down to 1 by day 5.
Lets hope the fall off isn't too sharp Will you get a day3 update?
Buuuut @BlondeinBrisvegas I can't sleep! I couldn't as a kid on Christmas Eve either so I've got no hope now!! My mind's now moved on to what happens if all five embryos don't thaw well and I need to use two embryos from their embryo bank, with 1.5 hrs before I need to be back at the airport! Yep, I'm possibly going a little crazy!!
Grow Sue's embryos grow!!
@midnite01 you did well to absorb that much info while you had your little one with you. I agree with everything BiB said but I just wanted to throw something different into the mix.
You may feel completely differently to me but for me age definitely matters. I'm shattered a lot of the time being a 40 year old mum to a lively almost 4 year old. And I vaguely remember the fog of exhaustion of that first year of having a newborn. This very much impacted on my decision on where to channel my limited energy (and financial resources). I chose to go to CFC because as each 6 months to a year passes I have significantly less Mummy energy...and I need as much of that energy to survive the newborn year and tough toddlerhood years. But that's just me!
Thanks guys hubbie and i would like our kids as close together as possible but i know im extremely lucky to have her so i dont take her for granted. It would be different if i was getting 10 plus eggs but im lucky to get 4. Its the cost that gets me plus the success rates. I might talk to hubbie tonight anout whether we just tell fs we are taking couple of mths off and just head to ct. Ive got a window in feb to go as mum and are off to hk in late march and we would want them to mind little miss. Shes better she has ear infection although not sleeping so finally dropped off in the car.
congrats @Sue77, great numbers still. fingers crossed for your next stage
Tahli, I hope you get a nap in at least so you're rested a bit. I guess you can always sleep through the flight. not long to go now
Corbes, strangely I didn't feel as bad about last cycle too, due to knowing implantation did occur when I hadn't been sure previously. it is some comfort. and hope. good luck to your friend
Deep breathes tahli hun.
It's daybreak, yay!!
@midnite01 you sound like you're making the emotional shift. Maybe if you look at some donor profiles it will help you and hubby to start sifting through the emotional issues that come with using donor eggs. That in itself takes time.
A good few of the donors are uni students so are either away during the school hols or the opposite, are available during the school hols when they're not concentrating on their studies.
Your donor would need to have pre-testing done and that also can take abit of time to get done. So if you chose Feb it would very quickly roll around!
Also I don't know whether you'd choose to go with Dr W whose clinic it is but I know he's away for two months but back around Feb I think.
And yippee for cheap Feb flights and accom, bonus!
PS: you might want to be honest with your FS and keep him on side as you'd need prescriptions such as Synarel and referrals for your lining scan and bloods....unless you have a wonderful GP who can do these for you.

@midnite01 I'm glad you're Ok and moving on from your heartbreaking cycle and are looking at what options are next. It's difficult with not getting many eggs, the costs are huge and the chances are lower. If your DH really wants one more go with your OE then maybe that's the one you draw the line under? Good luck with whatever path you choose to take.
@Tahli, not long now love! I've been stalking the thread and am very excited that you're transferring today! Stick little embie (embies?), stick!
AFM - OMG I just emailed my friend who offered to donate eggs to me a few months ago to find out if she is serious or not. Most awkward email I've ever written in my life. I can't even believe I could ask someone to do such a huge thing for me - I feel guilty at the tiniest things, so I don't know how I am going to handle the possibility of someone donating a potential child to me. But I'm resigned to the fact that I don't think I'm going to ever have a biological child, so if I want a family with my DH, this is the only way it's going to happen. I'm terrified of her response... Even though I've tried not to get my hopes up, she is so perfect and I would love, love, love to have her be a donor for me. This is hard!
