    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)

    Hmmm, I'll have a crack at it!

    I play quite conservatively. I like Option 1, because it gives you three cracks at trying to get pregnant. I know it is more costly but you've done a few double transfers now and I wonder if you might have better luck with singles?

    I don't like Option 5, purely because you're basically throwing away a potentially good embryo.

    It's really your choice though hon - you have to do what you're comfortable with

    @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
    Who is this psychic Luv???

    She can only see so far into the future so most likely it'll be a case of one bub at a time. Doesn't mean 2 aren't there waiting for you!!😊

    Ooooh....hopefully you'll get a cancellation but the Universe may wait a little until your DH starts getting his health in order which won't take long if he tows the line😊

    ETA- Thanks for the kind words too😊

    You're such a strong woman @BIB. I so admire your tenacity

    You know, I've never ever been 'dumped' by someone. I am always the one to up and leave. Not that I make rash decisions, but past experience suggests that I do spend a considerable amount of time evaluating my relationships and once I actually get around to doing the 'dumping' I have already reconciled it all in my heart. I've only ever felt a sense of relief, not distress, on leaving a relationship.

    Then again, I'm a hard-a$$ as far as relationships go I don't go for all the mushy crap, and I'm terribly independent. Being alone has never been an issue for me. Then again, I've never had a LO to consider either....

    Your situation is so different to any of mine. You and ex DH share a DD so you have so much more to negotiate and consider. Sending you massive hugs hon, as you work your way through all of this

    Thank you everyone for your kind thoughts this morning. I think I am just overwhelmed and emotional and the damn drugs aren't helping.

    I went out and ran a few errands and so far have not cried since I returned home. There are chocolate teddy-bear biscuits handy in case of emergencies

    @Blossom74 - numbers 1-6 in your list absolutely every cycle!

    Its best not to think too far ahead - I try to think of each one of those on your list one at a time rather than thinking about them all at once. Otherwise it becomes totally overwhelming.
    @Caesardust - great news for your lining!

    @Blossom74 - before I started IVF, I didn't know about those either! Even when they go through pre IVF info sessions, nothing they tell you truly conveys these things.

    Thank-you Luv (((Hugs)))

    It's been about 50/50 r.e Dumper/Dumpee stats in my relationships.

    I've had a terrible habit of "hanging on to the bitter end" in the past due to fear/ self esteem issues plus needing to turn over every stone etc before conceding defeat instead of just accepting the writing on the wall.

    This time, although I have held onto the relationship a little longer then I should've of, it was for DD that I did to try to keep her parents/ family unit together if possible.

    It''s not possible & now I'm far too old to be wasting time being in an unhappy union...Ex DP too which I hope he will see in time.

    In this instance...age/experience has given me wisdom & although there is still the fear of the unknown there it's not strong enough to stop me/delay the inevitible anymore.

    "Ain't nobody got time for that!!"😉😁
