    @Blossom74 i read somewhere that a normal pgd embie was the same success rates as a younger woman but its harder for us to get to a normal tested embie if that makes sense. I agree pgd testing is the way to go.

    If we go ahead, and I still want to chat with the FS to make sure it's the right thing to do, ideally I'd like to wait until next year. Sometime around late Jan/Feb but I suppose a lot of that depends ion my cycle, so who knows, lol. I guess I'd have to be a bit flexible with that

    ETA: Yep, I'll be taking 3 of the DHEA per day too.

    @Blossom74 I'd check how they pick the ideal sperm as a good looking one can be a dud. We thought we were getting a carefully chosen ideal sperm for cycle 1-4, but it was just one that the scientist thought looked good. I don't usually get annoyed easily, but when I learnt about PICSI I was furious, so now I want everybody to know.

    DHEA I think they recommend 3 months, but FS said he has seen it work faster.

    With 3-day PGD it increases to 20-25% they said - "the clutch and the breaks are also a bit older". I've read with the 5-day though that some doctors claim it equals the chance of a younger woman's embie. The 3-day PGD sucess rate might also be if you transferred/froze it at day-3?
    So excited for you that you have a plan.

    @midnite01 the flights were horrible, all late, exceptionally stressful, qantas don't leave enough time to transfer between flights (just over an hour) leaving you to power walk/skippy run to get to the next terminal/flight. On one occasion I started cramping and had to sit down. My god did I feel guilty.
    Because it was 30c plus on the way back I didn't wear compression stockings and my feet and ankles blew up like a pufferfish. When I noticed all I could think about was DVT. I 'slept' with my feet elevated lastnight and it's helped abit. Anyway, there's not much I can do about it now.
    Before my transfer I asked Dr W how the 2 blasts were looking and he said "good. I'm happy to transfer them" and I said "good?" and he said "ok then, very good". And gave me a look to say, whatever you need to believe that helps you.
    Immediately post transfer he confirmed he doesn't believe in immune issues and there isn't anything that kills off embryos. Also that beside the Progynova for 10 days and Viagra for 3 there isn't anything else that can boost your lining. I asked what would happen if my lining stayed thin and he said the embryos just wouldn't stay implanted. And here's the kicker. He finished that sentiment with "we can only help 90% of woman and the other 10%"...he shrugged his shoulders. So I'm in the 10% of women with thin lining that he can't help.
    Its more than a tad hard to shake his comments.

    @Tahli you poor thing. Flights sounds very stressful and Dr W awful. Has he heard of empathy?!? Do you have an FS here who is a bit more supportive?

    @Blossom74 At least I admit my crazy! I'm surprised you didn't hear the opening of my FRER packet!! I like having this early optimism that the grey shadow line that always comes up on them might turn into something at some point.
    LB quotes 60% success rate for us 40/41 year olds with a PGS normal embryo.

    I think so.

    @Tahli Well, there are a lot of doctors that DO believe in immune issues so *shrug* screw him frankly. I always thought that NK cells was some problem that you caught or was wrong with you but the more I read about it it is a natural condition (the clue is in the name! ) , that just so happens to stop women having so many babies, so if you lower it, you get preggers more easily. Makes sense to me, I guess that's why it is hard to pinpoint it if it's just a natural immune system working. 100 years ago we would have been grateful for not popping out 11 sprogs, now it's not terribly helpful. Damn you evolution for not keeping up with the times.

    Your lining sounded good, I was told a minimum of 6mm and you had that easily

    Those flights sounded horrendous!! Get some rest and I hope the next week or two flies by. When are you back at work?

    @midnite01 - correct and I agree. 20%of eggs at 42 are supposed to be normal apparently but so far I haven't seen my 20%. They must be hiding.
