Oh @Tahli I can imagine how stressed you must be. I have everything crossed that your squinter shows up very, very soon.
@Faithandhopelove- you need to have the NIPT diagnostic test - the nuchal is a risk ratio that's the problem - in the past I got a 1:2 risk for all trisomies on a nuchal scan - but I wasn't the one and she didn't have any chomosomal problem . Back then they didn't have the NIPT and the cvs and amino was the only option ( I had a cvs ). The NIPT is a great advance in these tests.
@Tahli stalking for updates today
@Maxwellsmum I am so, so sorry. What a terrible day that must have been for you. I hope you get AF as soon as possible.
@faithandhopellove that must be incredibly stressful for you, I hope further testing can ease you fears.
@midnite01 yeah, I think you just lose faith in your own eggs. After 7 failures in a row I thought, even if there is a good one in there somewhere I could go another 7 without finding it. That tipped me over to using an egg donor.
Tense times for everyone at the moment I think.....
Hello to all you lovely ladies. Thanks for keeping me going and not making me feel like a freak online at least 😀
I wanted to say thanks for your kind words of encouragement lastnight girls. It's still a negative this morning at 10.5dpo. @Corbes I hope you're onto something with the solid implanter idea rather than the firecracker of an early start I had last cycle. Like @Bongley 12dpo is my psychological turning point. Only 2 days to go.
I found myself awake for hours lastnight thinking about what to do next. I'll keep testing through til Thursday 14dpo, then go for the 'It's all over Red Rover' blood test on Thursday afternoon while my son is at DC, get the results on Friday and come off the meds.
I have 3 frozen embryos left in CT and have found myself running through all the different scenarios about what to do next...ranging from leaving them and trying with a new egg donor, to thawing 2, to thawing 3 and seeing which 2 are the best, to giving up because after transferring 5 donor embryos I still don't have an ongoing pregnancy.
My next window of opportunity for a CT trip is 26th Jan which fits in cycle wise but most importantly my ex has asked if he can take my son away for the Oz Day long w.end. It would mean using the very last of my savings. Food for thought.
I'm so sorry for the death in your family @Caesardust and for the sadness in your heart. Huge hugs hun.
@midnite01 To me it sounds like you're mentally ready for your donor egg journey. I hope your dh has a shift in mindset earlier for you. Obviously I mean that in the kindest way possible re where your dh is at on his own journey. Have you started looking at ed profiles?
@Maxwellsmum my heart absolutely goes out to you. You must have woken up this morning feeling so awfully sad. Tender hugs.
