    Congratulations Petal.

    It's always good to hear it does happen. I was reading the stats in the FS's office yesterday and whilst it is a long shot, it's encouraging to know its possible.

    I heard recently of a lady having an OE baby she conceived at 45 and my cousin's partner is naturally pregnant with first at 44 (15 weeks along and all looking good).

    POAS update: DPO11

    Well, from last night there is still a line, still slightly faint or slightly darker depending on wee dilution. My FMU tends to be quite diluted so I'll wait until SMU before calling today's line if possible. Hopefully it'll start to go one way or the other soon.

    BT is 3 days away.

QGF further requires any patient who creates embryos from oocytes aged less than 35 years and is having her first two embryo transfers with those embryos is only eligible to have a single embryo replaced on those two occasions." ... "This is to reduce the risk of multiple pregnancy".

    In another part it says guidelines suggest SET for women <35 and no more than 2 (DET) for women <40. No mention of us over 40s specifically.
    Sure, that's what it says. The reality is slightly different. I think you'll find that the cutoff for DET is 38, unless there are mitigating circumstances clinically. They really don't want everywoman getting two+ embryos each transfer.

    We can continue arguing the semantics of this, but I'm concerned that what's stated here with such authority is slightly incorrect. As a colleague of Wazza's, I guess I get slightly different information and have been trying to explain this others, but have been rejected.

    Good luck to everyone in their journeys, but please be careful about making decisions based on inaccurate statements of fact (however strongly they are believed) and taking advice from armchair clinicians armed with Dr Google.

    Also - I'd hate to see anything from BH used against Wazza by those who are out to restrict his practice. (Yes! It's true, there are people who don't like him or his methods!). That won't help any of us!

    Merry Christmas.

    @princessrory genuine question (I'm not a patient of his) why do some not like his methods? More than 1 embryo transferred issue?

    Was anyone else told "IVF is more likely to result in identical twins so we only transfer one"?
    My first clinic told me that. I have a friend who got her twins that way but she is the only one I have ever heard of. Wonder what the stats for that is. My accupuncturist told me of a clint with triplets from a TET (over 40) but that must be really rare!

    Things are getting scary for us. Saw the OB after Nuchal scan came back as high risk and he explained our Downs risk ratio was 1:2. Shiiite. The other trisomys were not so bad 1: 58 and1:63. Don't want to tell family or friends until it's confirmed but felt like I needed to tell somebody. Hope it's ok to put it here.

    Go Wazza! Wish we could clone him so we could all get a decent FS. Mine was an arrogant so and so.
