And @BlondeinBrisvegas I hope as each day passes you find your feet more and more with DD and your new lives together.
Charlie74 I just went back and checked and my scan was done on day 8 for this cycle (this started as natural then has turned medicated after those initial scans) and day 12 for the previous 2 fets when they didn't understand my lining issues. So I would ask if you could scan earlier knowing your lining. Not sure if that's possible?
Anyhoo...after much discussion we've agreed to maintain the status quo (with him in the spare room & on the proviso he treats me with the dignity & respect I deserve or else he can fruck off) as flatmates until he/we get enough funds together for him to start again which should be 2-3 months tops.
So far...so good. He seems to have settled down for the most part & has finally started moving on from his anger about it all. Grief takes time so we shall see how it goes on a day to day basis as far as I'm concerned.
Most of all...providing he tows the line...DD benefits by having him around longer on a daily basis.
@Tahli it's interesting reading about the changes in the amh. Makes you really wonder about the validity of that test. I suppose there will always be something we can say is the missing link but it's when you're ready to give up that comes from your head and heart rather than a number on a page. I hope you can reach a decisions that sits ok with you. I don't envy you. It's so tough.
Hello to everyone else this evening. Thanks for all the advice about the pregnyl. I think I'm going to revert back to my naive ivf self a year ago and not do any poas and just wait for the bt. I know it will near kill me but the thought of a false positive scares me more. I'm so highly strung at the moment anyway as dp has had a meltdown and can't deal with the house purchase and all of the bank and developer calls and email. I've had to take over but along with the stress and time ivf consumes I also have to manage 8 staff directly who are high maintenance on a daily level. So I'm feeling like I'm fading before I've hit the starting line after all the brilliant work I've done on mind and body for a couple of months. In my life it never rains. It pours it down!!! God please help me find some sanity and peace before Wednesday.
@winsor, congrats on being PUPO love
Unfortunately, no good news on my end.
Lining was only 4.7, which did not surprise me in the slightest considering I am STILL spotting. My period never ended.
I also only made two follies, and they measured 5mm and 3mm respectively.
Very disappointing, but I guess it goes to prove (for me anyway) that less is not more. Less is less
My Nurse tried to talk me into continuing the Gonal-F and seeing if we can grow them up to size. I said that I didn't want to do that, as I wanted the follies to grow to size naturally in the 'normal time frame.' I don't want to waste $5K trying to fertilise 'aged eggs' if that makes sense.
She was very discouraging about that but I stuck to my guns and said I wanted to cancel the cycle and try again next month. She said she would talk to my FS about it and get back to me with what he thought was the best thing to do.
I rang DH and told him. He was in full agreement with me. He said we said originally we wanted three as a minimum for EPU. Even if there were two that were close to size (like 14mm) we could push on for a day or two, but he agreed trying to grow a 3mm folly up to 16mm was ridiculous and we should just try again next month. If it is meant to be it will be.
I have requested my Nurse to tell my Doctor I want to do a cycle with as high a dosage as he can give me that is both within the bounds of 'legal' but not enough to kill me
If that doesn't work I'd like to try a round with drugs we've never tried before, like Menopur (sp?) for example.
I am disappointed in today but I still feel in my gut I have good eggs on board. I am going to keep trying and if my FS won't help (though I suspect he will do another round on a higher dose) then I'll go somewhere else!

sorry to hear Blossom. but it sounds like you're making the right decision. the timing was just out this cycle due to your extended af - that must be affecting the follicle size. I hope everything resets cleanly for next cycle. and your doctor agrees with you
Caesardust - this is all sounding stressful, I hope you can keep calm about it all. sounds like you're used to dealing with the stress so that should kick in. good luck for wednesday
Blossom74 - I'm sorry you didn't get good news. However I think you made the right decision cancelling the cycle. I would do the same. Much better to start a new cycle rather than blasting the two follies with a high fsh dose in an attempt to push them on.
Pregnant for the first-time?
Not sure where to start? We can help!
