mummymaybe. We've just done our first FET (half-way through TWW) and I've found it so much easier on the body. I hope you do too. I still look preggars, but am on 25mg pred and Pregnyl boosters, so that would explain that. I've found it less stressful too, it's only now that I'm half-way through TWW that reality is setting in that I've had the transfer and I'm symptom spotting (which is stupid given support drugs).
@mummymaybe - Oh hun it must be so hard going down this road again, huge big hugs. Great that you are ready to go with an FET hin as the girls have said its much easier on the body. Looks like me you and @mrsparso will be cycling together when Warren returns off his break unless you catch that egg you have hun and it can happen.
Hi everyone been a bit quiet as our first attempt at day 5 transfer ended in tears and a trip home after chatting to a very worried Warren. It seems we still only had a morula on day five when they did their 7am check. Fast forward to 11am when I was a crying mess at home and my Vallium had worn off, there was a call to say 3 had rallied to cavitating morulas and the scientists had a little more hope they may make day 6 blasts.
So yesterday off we went again after our Wednesday practice run and had a 5BB transferred, my first ever Wazza transfer xperience complete with brandy and singing and DH and I holding hands and made to humm down the corridor. We also have 2 on ice, two 4BCs. So from nothing to something we are very very grateful. Thanks everyone for your well wishes. Xxx
MamaKes how stressful. On our last stim cycle we were told we'd have nothing 2 times (once due to embryologist communication skills) and eventually two rallied (but only 1 was PGD normal). It was so stressful and lots of tears were spilt. With our transfer there were more dramas as it looked at one point as if they'd have to defrost the embie the day before making it a day 7 and that would likely have killed it. Thank god Warren sorted that out for us. It was all so stressful - I've lived a high stress life, but it drove my cortisol levels sky high. It took a while for me to de-stress afterwards, so please be extra gentle on yourself.
Fingers, toes, and everything crossed for you.
Omg @MamaKes that's so stressful after everything you've gone thru to get those eggs!!!!! You poor thing!! I'm so relieved to hear you got some embies in the end!!! What a stressful time for you xxx I was wondering how you were going after transfer and didn't see anything here.
@MamaKes - Oh hun I was wondering how you went on. It's such a rollercoaster isn't it, we were the same last fresh cycle, I didnt get to the hospital though I rang up a scientist on my way down only to be told very bluntly that there were no blasts and to phone Warren, dont think some of the scientists there have the best sociall skills. Warren was more reassuring and we just had slow starters that made it to blast on day 6. Remember when they checked that st 7am they would not quite be 5 day. I am so glad that you got to transfer hun, rest now and try to have a relaxing tww. Great that you have some in the freezer too x
I decided to ring the nurse and ask about my embie and apparently the scientists have still classified it as day 6. I also asked about my next cycle and Warren wants to do something different due to me having so many eggs last fresh cycles so I will alternate my dose of fsh from 133 to 150 every day. We will also ICSI all the eggs as that's what gave us better results last time. He also wants me to consider not putting my PGD tested embryo back this cycle as results are supposedly better on a frozen cycle 😐. I will have to think about this as if we aren't successful this cycle we will have to have a big break due to travel planned at the beginning of next year plus also I have always had better results on a fresh cycle personally.
