"It's hard to justify going back to CT for one average embie though..
I've always had a feeling you'd end up with twins for some reason".
@JulieMalooley It's really hard to justify it and do you remember where your head was at on your last transfer when you were considering a new ED. That's where mine's at. I'm ready to draw a line under this batch if this transfer is unsuccessful. Coming up with $13k for a new batch of embryos though. Ouch.
I've often wondered if you were financially pushed whether you could buy embryos from their embryo bank for a much smaller sum than a full fresh cycle. I'd like to chose my ED and SD so it's not an option for me but I have wondered.
On the twins front...I've found myself gravitating towards the profiles of ED's who are twins. So maybe you're onto something there.
I just REALLY want this cycle to work so I don't have to go through any of the next step.

@Gagingi I reckon you should save that one for @Blossom74's visual aid, esp if she does a day 3 DET. I have feeling she knows what to do with a rolling pin. I just enjoy the aesthetics of it!!
That's very sweet of your to ask about my furry boy. He has IBD (Inflammatory Bowel Disease) so is on fish and 5mg of Pred for another week, then off for another ultrasound. More worrying it's looking like he has early Small Cell Lymphoma which if caught early can be treated with meds for a long time I think. To absolutely confirm the diagnosis would involve an operation costing $2.2k. I'll get more info next week. I'm hoping for the best and the specialist vet is trying to avoid the costly op for me, bless him. And obviously this all comes into play with what I can afford to do IVF wise.

@Tahli I think transferring 3 would just be walking on the wild side. As soon as you did it you would freak out that it might work I reckon. Transferring two seems like a much better option.
I've never heard about crinone in the back door as to me that doesn't make sense. I have heard of pessaries in there but again I always felt like the stuff needs to be as close to my uterus as possible right? I would put both in there if I felt it worked any better.
I'm currently stressing that the pregnyl is not enough to support my embies. It just feels weird without the crinone or pessaries. I keep feeling like I've forgotten to do something. I'm also thinking ever twinge is something but I think it's just the constipation. I've also had a bit of discharge which is similar to when I'm ovulating. That's bizarre.
Oh I know how to wield a rolling pin FOR SURE !
@Tahli, you should keep in mind too hon that you've just been flushed and scratched and all that jazz. Your uterus might be all warm and welcoming now. The perfect sort of environment, for....oh, I don't know.... THREE embies to settle on in?!
Careful, careful catchee monkey. Or rather, catchee three monkeys
Caesardust, I only had pregnyl last cycle and it was enough to kickstart my natural progesterone production. maybe you make enough on your own from the levels in previous BTs. that cycle did work for a short time so I think it'll be fine
Tahli, sorry to hear about your pup. I hope he's on the mend soon
@Tahli - that is tough with your furry boy. They are so precious too. Our cat has something similar to IBD that we've been managing with pred for about 2 years. Medicating a cat can be tough too - much easier to whack a needle into oneself! They've warned us that a lymphoma could develop at any time. She is doing pretty well, but also has thyroid and renal issues. She's almost 18 and is a bit fragile these days. She is with a specialist vet who has been quite upfront with us that the next serious condition she develops will probably be it. At this time she has a good quality of life - we don't now how we'd get through IVF heartaches without her. I imagine given you lad's age and if he is otherwise in good health you want to do all you can, but with IVF costs that is a huge burden. I know I recoiled at our $350 vet bill on Monday, so cannot imagine finding thousands right now.
