    PS: Gagingi, yep, my DH has no swimmers so lots of sex aint helping me I'm afraid! Damn vasectomy, lol.

    PPS: Tahli, thank you for the BFP alert today
    Here's something I found interesting re sex and implantation. Our last 3 cycles we would always DTD the morning before transfer.

    @Sue77 Have you looked into surrogacy in Canada and the USA? Mighty expensive though.

    Lol, well it will certainly be bulky NOW @faithandhopellove ! And yep, I reckon we probably are closer to the halfway point than you think. I reckon my c/s will be at 34-35 weeks due to the velamentous cord insertion in one Bub, but we'll see..
    Afm I've just been googling if I can safely drain my a55 grapes myself - starting with a needle
    I suppose. DP is getting up me, but there's no way in hell in keeping this THING for at least another 6 months ! I've been known to do a bit of self surgery in the past so am certainly keeping it in the back of my mind. I asked today if the dr would consider helping me even tho I'm UTD and still waiting for him to confirm. If no, then self surgery it is.

    Head down between the legs (while I can still bend that far) and a small mirror and needle. They don't usually burn, they scalpel them and drain the clot, then snap an elastic band around the base and it just scars up. Yep I'm hoping and praying I can keep my Monday appt.
    Needless to say I'm stocked up now on pumpkin seeds, almonds, dried fruit, Metamucil and popcorn (!) which is apparently excellent for fibre. And plenty of water. The least I can do is stop it getting worse.

    @Precious40 and @Lolly99 what fabulous news from both of you today. I'm hoping you both have smooth and uneventful pregnancies over the coming months. So happy for you xxx

    There's so many bfps on here at the moment it's hard to keep up! I'm amazed sometimes how life can change in a heartbeat really. I start getting mental images of you all in that moment when you find out and I also wonder a lot how I would react. To a bfp or to a bfp with twins. Surreal really.

    I'm curious about the talk about dtd before the transfer. It's before the transfer right? And if dp has had a vasectomy is there no point or is there? I don't know about the rest of you but ivf along with knowing sex won't get me pregnant has turned me off it big time. I feel guilty even admitting that on here because if I thought it would help I'd be all over it. Shocking eh.

    I had my last blood test today. The fasting homocysteine one that takes over two hours and three bloods taken. Gosh that waiting room was BORING!!

    @JulieMalooley have you had banding done? I had some internal banding a few years ago and it was horrendously painful. I was in agony, the nurses panicked, the anaethatist didn't know what to do and the surgeon wanted to reverse the procedure, but by then 10 hours was down and I just stuck it out. It was only supposed to be a few hours in hospital, so obviously something went wrong, although I've since heard it is usually very painful. I wouldn't want that whilst pregnant... I don't know that I'd have it again - the cure was worse than the problem. Plus they came back pretty quickly (painkillers following accident)...

    My sympathies.

    Hi Ceaserdust! about dtd before transfer I have read/heard that it can help make for a "sticky" and nourishing environment for the embryo to settle in and implant. Don't know if there is truth to it but kind of makes sense? Idk but I did it anyways!
    As we were having donor eggs I was not ovulating but I think some of the other own egg IVF ladies do it also as maybe some of their stimulated eggs were not fully mature at egg collection and had since matured. I think?! I'm no expert certainly, this is my first pregnancy after years of this so idk. To me sometimes it's still a lot of luck and chance but of course do whatever you can do to help increase the odds.
