Cool cucumber - did they give you a pic?
I'm sure they're fine Caesardust. I think it depends on how early (before the transfer) they unfroze them. day 6 would mean starting to hatch? so they probably wouldn't look like day5s I think. they're puffing up nicely inside you now, I bet. let's hope they hold hands and help each other burrow in
Caesardust They're all shrunk up from the freezing aren't they, they suck all the water out to freeze? I got warned with each FET that they would look a bit odd. Incy was the worst.
A legal document will only work until the kids are 18. So whilst counselling is time consuming and potentially may identify a poor donor-recipient fit, it's really important to clarify roles and expectations.
When are your PGD results due? How are you traveling?
Once the sperm and eggs have mixed the recipients have complete ownership of the embryos. So any legal document I would have thought would be for the donors benefit as all the rights are in the recipients hands from then on. The only thing is, you can't on donate any spare frozen embryos as the number of families donors can donate to is limited. So they'd have to be stored or destroyed or donated to science (which Genea told me that they have too many already)

And I do want to do one or two more cycles just to put my mind at rest that I did do everything possible with my OE. So I think rather than any big discussions, I'll just present the facts to DH without a lot of emotion and just say this is what I want to do, this is the time frame, these are the costs and then it ends because I'll be 45, but I want that opportunity. I can't see him saying no to that, especially as I normally don't produce any more than one egg so it doesn't even get to EPU so our chances of getting two or three are slim.
If we did split I'm not sure whether I'd go the DE/DS single mother path, I guess I could only tell that once I was in that situation and had my life settled again. But I could see myself living out the song "All I want to do is make love to you" - remember that cheesy one where she had a one night stand with a hot guy purposely to fall pregnant?? LOL

Gagingi - my first cycle was pure Gonal f which produced 19 eggs, 17 mature but only 7 fertilised as the rest ' disintegrated' with the ICSI. Given that I've not been keen to do Gonal f again which is why my FS switched me to menopur which I suppose at least has increased my fertilisation rate with the best rate being at 300 does rather than the 225 I was on previously. Still I only got 3 blasts from 12 fertilised and only two of those could be biopsied. If I decide to do another cycle I intend to ask about the alternating Gonal f and menopur option or even Gonal f plus luveris which means you can control the lh dose component.
PGD results are due 12 Feb. I decided not to run around having scans and blood tests to prep for a transfer as I have done this twice which I find just adds false hope and adds to the devastation of getting an abnormal result. I will just wait on the results and if both are abnormal ( again) I will get some information on my two day 6 frozen ones and an opinion from my FS as to whether I should transfer one of them or do one more cycle before I turn 43 in June.
