    Sorry to hear that Charlie. I can imagine the numbness you must be feeling.

    I have forgotten the reason why you had one frozen without testing. Was it not hatching enough? It could well be normal but I can understand your trepidation.

    @Charlie74 -I think your plan sounds good. I am also wondering if I should get on Wazzas waiting list now as a back up .

    I understand the feeling hopeless part. I am also at that point and wondering if I'm just pointlessly pushing against my fate which is that I won't achieve a pregnancy at 42. However I don't want to give up yet and will start stimms on 2 Jan.

    Although you feel bad now in a few days you will pick yourself up and want to move ahead with a plan.

    @Tahli Wazza diagnosed me with Adenomyosis between cycle #4 and #5 - dx was based on scan, bloods, and symptoms. He was confident in the diagnosis and didn't want to hold up cycles with a lap and it's not like endo where they can treat it during a lap. I have PCOS and endo as well. Wazza mentioned treatment could include birth control, but at this stage and given my age he didn't want us to spend time on that. So for #5 he increased Clexane from 20 to 60/day, prednisone from 25 to 50, and added intralipids. I think the blood thinners are to help with uterus flexibility/blood flow and there is also thought to be an autoimmune link, hence pred and intralipids. Other post-ET meds are the same as his usual comprehensive regime. My understanding is that Adenomyosis is very common in women 40+. I see it as a variant to endo.

    I'm wondering... With your embies, it's not worth getting them biopsied at this stage? Given you are time poor, the costs and emotional drain I'd wonder about doing that next to ensure you only go if it's worthwhile. Also lets you make an informed decision about the risk of multiples?

    Sorry again you you are in this situation.

    Definitely get on his waiting list gals, it really can't hurt.

    FWIW My close mate is in the same boat, PGD tested came back abnormal and 1 untested in the freezer. I told her that my very early blastocyst that I got my BFP from would never have made it to testing, he was too slow.

    @Charlie74 - sorry to hear your news. I hope your frostie is the one. Statistically I'd have thought it would have a good chance - as we know, it's a % that are good, rather than being a batch and it obviously grew well/is strong. So it's ovary buddies don't mean it's abnormal and they actually increase the odds it could be the one. It's a numbers game.

    We're really happy with Wazza, despite not having our BFP yet. He definitely tries everything and is so well informed. I think his wait-list is 6 months, but there is a cancellation list and I heard of one couple getting in within a week. I wonder if your current FS referred you/consulted with him if that might speed things up (no idea - just wondering)? Are you in Brisbane? It's getting the 90 minute initial consult that is tricky, once that is done, you're underway (with our FS#1 he had a limited number of people he'd have cycling at any one time, whereas Wazza's office is a machine). Wazza is also taking a step back from January - so I'd get on the books (ditto for you @Green lady).

    Thinking of you Charlie.

    @Charlie74 I'm really sorry to hear your news Hun. Massive hugs. You must be feeling shocking. At least you have DHs big strong arms to collapse into tonight. I'm sure breaking the news to him will be very hard. I really feel for you. Are you waiting for any particular reason to transfer your good embryo? I'm sorry if I've missed why.
    Im also sorry your sister is having a rough time in the last couple of days of her pregnancy. I know what it's like to have your cherished sister on the opposite side of the world when pregnant/birthing. It's bl~~dy hard. Which hospital is she in?

    Thanks for all your info on adenomyosis girls. I need to sit down and make some notes. I'm definitely not up for having another lap so if it can be diagnosed via a scan and blood tests that would be brilliant. I don't know if I have it as such, it was just a passing comment from the sonographer that's made me abit nervous. When I ring the nurse in LBs office for my hcg result tomorrow I'll ask about adenomyosis testing.
    I so wish I'd gone with Wazza as my FS but I didn't know he existed until much later. I had to laugh abit at the 90 min consultation. LB's was 10-15mins. I struggled to get the extra minute to tell her I'd had 2 X 10wk miscarriages.
    Thanks for the Pred weaning plan @Bongley. My next FET is booked for the 22nd Jan so I need to work out the maths on the weaning!
    @Gagingi I'd love to have my 3 frozen embryos tested but CFC don't recommend thawing then rethawing embryos. He any-one else re-thawed embryos?
    @Summer you mentioned the word "futile". That's exactly how I feel right now.
    Hi to all the girls, xx.

    We were just waiting to get this 2nd stim done, then the next cycle falls right over Christmas /NY so Feb was the best option.

    Im feeling so angry with myself. I allowed myself to actually believe this might happen. That things have been going well and just MAYBE we'd end up with a baby. But this news today just reminds me that it's all really unlikely. I hate sounding ungrateful. I know we have one embryo that's definitely ok. But I don't know anyone, either in this forum or amongst my real life friends who've done IVF who have gotten pregnant on their first embryo transfer. So it seems highly unlikely that I'll be any different to anyone else. And it seems like that one little embie will probably be the only normal we'll ever get. I was 40.5 when it was created. Everything else now will be older if we stim again.
    @Charlie74 - I could have written your post😥.
