    Big for you Luv.

    I used to feel that way every, single Cycle and yes, the FSH/Orgalutran etc will fruck with your head Luv as well. I was a crying, hormonal mess at times, then a moody biatch who would "Hulk Out" at the drop of a hat too!!

    I think you just have to take one day at a time and one step of the process at a time and try to be positive about it as best as you can as it really is out of your hands once the stimming starts

    had my first scan today. she measured about 6 on left and 3 on right but the printout's only showing 3L & 1R. the leading one will be left side (which is always my dominant side). but the weird thing is the 3 left sides are 16.7, 29.5, 29.5 so I think there's 2 cysts (or something elses) as these are too big for the follicles. hoping they're ok, not something that needs to be removed before transfer. lining is ok at 10.74 and lead follie is 16.7 so probably a few days off Ov yet. expected to be friday if going from the calendar but it could be a couple of days late going from size (unless they're usually smaller on natural cycles? not sure). waiting on the update call.

    That's all sounding very promising for the most part there Luv!!!

    Yes, the larger measurements wouldn't be follicles I don't think???

    if they are cysts they'll just sit there quietly and let your lead follicle ovulate in peace!!!

    Well done to @Caesardust and @winsor on your great results today!
    @Precious40 I hope you can get resolution this arvo. Fingers crossed a scan is an option for this week. I've had them done in weeks 4 (nothing seen), 5 (basics seen) and 6 (heartbeat seen) without knowing what my hcg was. As has been suggested, I'm sure a hospital emergency dept would do one for you if you dramatized your predicament a bit. Hopefully it doesn't come to that and your FS orders one for you.
    @BlondeinBrisvegas Gosh I feel for you hun. Do you think you're holding it together until DP physically leaves?

    Option 1: Thaw one at a time for single FETs (getting 3 possible single transfers)
    Option 2: Thaw one for a single FET (leaving me 2 embryos for a future double FET)
    Option 3: Thaw two for a double FET (all thaw well, leaving me a single future FET option)
    Option 4: Thaw two for a double FET (1 doesn't thaw well so they thaw the 3rd one)
    Option 5: Thaw all three and transfer the two best looking (although I couldn't discard a perfectly healthy embryo & if the FET is unsuccessful then its $13k for a new donor cycle)

    Note: If I have a single embryo left as my last embryo and start a new donor cycle I can't legally transfer that last frozen embryo in with a new fresh embryo to create a double FET.

    I'm going to reserve my answer until I hear how your appointment with Dr M goes and if there's any issues he's found ok?? Depending on what he says, you could also run the question by him to see what he advises r.e SET/DET whether they be in an OE Cycle with LB or over in CT.



    Also the Pred can cause your cholesterol to rise so I'd chalk it up to that

    Most probably Luv...I did the same thing when Mum was sick/passed away when Preggo with DD out of fear of such intense stress/emotions affecting her, though I must say I have done a fair bit of grieving in the last month since I ended things (I try to do it on my own when DD's not around or at night when she's asleep as I don't want her to see me upset lest it upset and confuse her) and all of last week too while he was away so am slowly working through it in my head/heart.

    I wonder if that means they are only counting the ones they anticipate to come up to size and be ready for pickup? I'm really not sure love. Hopefully your next phone call will clarify things for you. Your lining sounds great though! Well done you!

    Its a tough one @Tahli if you are having implantation issues then maybe you want to give yourself a few shots to get it right. Also once you do get your oven all sorted out if you do put back two then chance of twins would be pretty high. But you know I'm a one at a time gal easy to say when I don't have to fly out to CT per transfer.

    Firstly @Tahli great to have you back. I'm glad your health is ok. But decisions decisions. After friday will you do oe cycle before fet or straight to ct for fet.

    @Blossom74 oh luv you must be so anxious excited and terrified all at once for this cycle i think we are all ivf naive in our first couple cycles however then we become ivf proffessors and unfortunately we then understand our odds. I believe this if blossom can come once he/she can come again. You have genetics on your side luv so hang on in there it will all be ok. Sending lots of prayers and baby dust your way.

    @Bib oh luv you are so amazing to be going through everything and still be on here for everyone. I really hope that everything goes smoothly for you and your lo.

    Afm i called wazza today. We are on the list for august. Im so freaked out. But i need a true 2nd opinion. De vs oe. Pgd testing or not etc etc. Dh and i have decided to see what he says and take it from there. Also on cancelation list. Therefore dh has 6 months to fix his health stuff. Its all lifestyle changes at this stage but his bp is really high as is cholesterol. Liver function isnt great either so big changes for him. Ive been nagging for years so now time is right.

    Also i saw psychic yesterday and i have a little girl waiting for me. Yippee although i was hoping for two so she would have a sister. Is that weird? I feel a little low today as there is only one? I know that sounds greedy and stupid but ive felt two little girls for at least 2 yrs now so i was a bit taken back yesterday. I know she may be full of it but she asked who warren was and told dh and i that he would give her to me with a worried confused look on her face as that is not dh name.Haha we explained ivf and she was so relieved so thats enough of a push for me. Wazza is booked. Now just to find the money

    I've never had it done myself love but I think I've heard others mention that they take some form of pain killers beforehand with the scratch.

    Not sure how long it would take AF to come back after all those procedures, but is 2 weeks a bit of a push?

    Hi tahli can you remind me again how you went with this donors embryos previously? I think you had 2 that implanted and you m/c late? (So sorry) and the second time two implanted and BFFN? I'm not much help as my thoughts are always transfer two and increase chances!! Perhaps wait for all your final results and see if they have indication as too what's best.
    So sorry @Blossom that your having a stressful time today. My therapist person says starting these cycles make us very vulnerable and can bring up very emotional issues. Sounds like you're onto it with being present and mindful. Sometimes easy to say but hard to put into practice. Can you go for long walk? Sometimes that helps me. Big hugs Hun.
