hugs BiB. the only consolation I can think of is I hope they were used for science to further knowledge on it all. I guess it's something we all think about as we're so attached to our potential bubs.
It's all right for me Luv...I got my happy ending. It's all you other Lovelies still trying that upsets me more nowxo
ETA- I hope they were used for research too. Have got no prob with that if they were.

I asked the research question at my old IVF clinic and was told no way. Human rights and all. Still... I bet some of it goes on.
15 weeks today and I can now feel my uterus which is up at my navel already. Still trying to get excited. Got my first baby gear in the house - I was given a baby hamper at a Xmas party last night yet to open it though..
I've been meaning to thank you BIB - for a comment you made to someone else about dulcolax drops. Omg what a godsend. I've never been bound up like this and that stuff just strips you clean ! Pear juice, fibre, prunes etc all did nothing.
Am sure there is some lovely things in the hamper for them too. A lovely gesture😊 Hope you had a good time at your Xmas party.
Sounds like all is going well for you & the bubs too which is great. Morph scan soon!!😊👍
They're absolutely not used for research without anyone's written permission. Research isn't the main aim of IVF groups - it's money-making. If they get anyone pregnant, that's a bonus.
I don't think the field is evolving as quickly as other parts of medicine and that's what I find very frustrating. In the same period of time, HIV/AIDS has gone from being a life sentence to something almost curable. How far have we really come with ART?
And until women lobby for it, it's not going to change.
Ah, sunshine pee. Yes, familiar with that! Fingers crossed this is the start of something @Bongley! The next few days will be make or break. I am really hoping when I log on tomorrow you will be here saying "OMG! Look at this line!"
I have decided, should I be so lucky as to be able to retrieve and fertilise any eggs this time round, that I will not be PGD testing.
I know it's potentially wasting money implanting embies that may not make it, but I can't bare the thought of not giving each one a chance, or of losing embies along the way.
Is that weird? I'd just rather go through the last cycle with no 'what if's.' It's only money, right?
