    As a post script I want to mention that our nuchal scan came back as high risk. I see my OB next week to determine what our next step is. I won't risk losing one or both with amniocentesis so I think it will be NIPT.
    Oh sh!t Luv!!! Is that for both of them?? Yes, a NIPT should hopefully tell you.

    Am hoping and praying that all will end up being ok with them both

    Hon, just remember that anyone over 40 is automatically going to be high-risk just because our age makes the numbers come out that way anyway. Do you know what risk factors showed up? I remember going through this conversation with MGCBertie when hers came back high risk as well - most of the numbers were absolutely fine on all the different parameters, but it was the age factor that shot the risk up. So maybe have a look at whether there is anything in the results that looks out of range - post here if you want other opinions. Hang tight.


    Oh @Tahli I can imagine how stressed you must be. I have everything crossed that your squinter shows up very, very soon.

    I hope it's just your age that has made the result high risk. That's why I didn't bother with it & just did the Harmony test. I'm sure it's conclusive results for twins. Hopefully a NIPT will bring you some peace of mind ❤️

    @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.....

    Yes midnite I know this feeling well. I've been following on and keeping up with you all but sadness overcame me this week with a death in the family which then brought everyone together which then meant lots of baby talk from cousins and sister in law. It was excruciating. Ivf makes me feel like a freak that no one wants to be near for fear of saying the wrong thing. I want to stop but I want to be a mother more and I feel like I deserve to be for how hard I've worked at it. I'm now in a holding state for my private health to end their waiting period in April. The fees at Monash and with Pgd are frightening!! Still waiting to hear if my current clinic will transfer my two remaining frosties but they're taking their time. Waiting sucks!!!!

    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.
