Lining 7.7 which doesn't matter as such but I still like to know what it is in case I ever get the chance to do a transfer.

    So, for the third time I have lots of good sized follies, but just need one of them to have a good egg in it. My FS said again, the only reason he thinks I should do this third cycle is because I get such good numbers for my age, otherwise he would have recommended I pull the pin.
    @Precious40 - stalking for update on bt.

    Yippee!!!! Looking good Luv!!!

    There's bound to be at least a few winners among that lot I reckon!!!

    Funnily enough I can give clexane to patients without a second thought (& they tell me it doesn't hurt!)... But it's different when ur jabbing urself.. I used to be completely needle phobic as a child.. Like catatonic nearly if I had to have an injection! Thank god that's changed otherwise IVF would be like self torture!! ������
    My sister who is a Nurse Educator (so obviously an RN) is bloody petrified of needles!!! She'd never cope with having to do IVF!!!

    But what ordinary couple can afford 9 cycles realistically?
    Especially 9 fully stimulated Cycles plus any FET's if you're lucky enough to get frosties.

    I'm just thankful I didn't have to have SET's as it took 12 embryos as it was to get my BFFP which would've meant potentially and likely 12 stimulated bloody Cycles as we never got any frosties ever and even then who knows how many good embryo's perished in the dish because they weren't good enough to be frozen??

    Ok, in all likelihood and to be fair, almost all of the excess one's we had (that didn't kick the bucket in the dish before Day 5) were probably duds anyway.

    I do remember our @emski72 saying that LB told her for women in our age group it could potentially take 6-8 stimulated cycles to get a BFFP when using OE's I'm pretty sure???

    @Charlie74 Uhm, I'm a little confused by your question. I'm sure I shouldn't be! Because I have PHI the day admission (bed) is 100% covered...which doesn't help you. It was just on that first admission when I had to pay my excess for the one and only time for the year that I had to pay about $350 for the day admission (bed...it's a chair actually) and I always pay $32 for the solution.
    Are you still undecided about Monash's 200mls vs Sydney's 500mls?
    My phone just rang. Yay, I just got a cancelled apt with LB for Wednesday. I'm praying she'll agree to refer me for a HyCoSy under anaesthetic in hospital. I need the procedure done next week.
    I bet when I'm in LBs room I'll want to do another OE cycle. Shame I don't have the $10k sitting there for an OE cycle though.

    Wowee @Green lady - nice work. You are the envy of us all I'm sure !! What I wouldn't have given to get numbers like that !!
    AFM, appt done. All looking good. I asked the Dr to check the heartbeats just to make sure we still had two and he pulled out an ultrasound machine that would have been used in the ice ages and we saw two big jiggling heads, in completely different positions than I expected, but two nonetheless. Looks like there is no mistake - it's twins alright. They are going to put me on a trial for preventing gestational diabetes as long as my BMI is not too low, and have asked me to start iron . Like I need anything else to block me up !!

    @greenlady wow thats fab!! Im also jealous, my record was 9 which yielded 6 eggs. FX theres your take home baby in there

    @Charlie74 I saw that article recently too and thought of my FS who has always quoted the other study that said once you've done such and such amount (cant remember) then the odds go down greatly. My reasoning in my head was that it takes some couples a year to conceive naturally with timed s3x and so wouldnt that be something to consider with IVF too?

    my next transfer will be embryo #9 so hope that number is a good omen!!

    and hope i haven't just jinxed myself!!!

    I wonder if the odds go down because we stuff our bodies up so much with all the hormones and drugs.. ?
