    @faithandhopellove My clinic told me that embryos have to be expanded to be frozen. So if they are expanded but not hatching then they wouldn't be able to be tested.

    Yeah, i think it's ok hon. If you were consistently getting low readings, failing to double(ish) on a regular basis, or if your levels went backwards, then I'd be concerned. Being that you are so early in the piece though, I really do think it's normal for things to take a little while to settle in.

    @winsor congratulations on a perfect number!!! You are right smack bang exactly where you need to be

    Just to put your mind at rest as to how teeny tiny the variations in numbers are at this stage with a starting number of 74, increasing by:

    60% = 118
    70% = 126
    75% = 130
    80% = 133
    90% = 141
    100% = 148 (if it doubled in 48 hours)

    So, they wanted 60% and you are pretty much on 75% so that's excellent and is well within the 48-72 hour doubling rate expected in these early days. So you can stop worrying about that number because it is PERFECT!

    Thanks @calypso75, @infinity888 & @Charlie74 - I'm doing OK, just a mini-meltdown and now I'm back to thinking about the plan and what we'll do next. I think I'll see my FS next week if I can and talk to him about the microlut for seven days and then see about a new cycle - the timing would fit in-between travel through March, so that could definitely work. I'll have to find out the exact costs and talk to DH - it might not be that much as I've never gotten to EPU before as I just don't make more than one follicle, but I feel like I have to have one more go before I turn 45. And now that I'm much healthier and have been off all meds for seven months, maybe a low dose cycle might do the trick. It's worth a go and if not, then I can rule a line under that and move to DE.
