    I do have a raspberry and white chocolate muffin waiting for me for afterwards. I'll just think about that!

    @Caesardust I'm so sorry about BFN. @Billie2 I'm always on mini-aspirin, so I'd start. Remember 0rgasms are also good for blood flow pre-ET.

    AFM. Had EPU yesterday - got 11 eggs from 20 follies. 7 were mature and 4 have fertalised. Wazza said that the 9 follies that "wouldn't cough" were due to AMA . I'm wondering if I do better when I don't down-reg. Last cycle (which wasn't down-reg - maybe flare?) we got 14 eggs/10 mature/7 fertalised. I'm now worried nothing will make it to day 5, let alone be normal PGD. I haven't really had empty follicles before, but with nearly 50% being duds, I cannot imagine the others are great quality and suspect something was wrong with cycle overall. I also don't know whether to restart DHEA, being a PCOS girl.

    Adding to the choc stats - I've just had some Marvelous Creations and snakes - I don't usually eat sugary foods, but thought I'd try it to combat post-EPU blues... Not working so far and I've hit sugar wall (I need more practice). Are we supposed to fill out questionnaires or is this a qualitative study?

    Thanks @winsor. I know 4 sounds good to many, but I'm a high responder (PCOS) and our embies drop like flies. Then I don't understand in 2 months why I've suddenly got 50% empty follies. AMA is advanced maternal age.

    4 from 7 is pretty bloody good Luv

    I understand why you're anxious about it all. Just have to hope that they're 4 of the best in the dish there!!!

    I've never had empty follicles either but have read about it. I had 7 immature eggs from 9 in my 3rd Cycle instead. Either way, it frucking sux but at least there was 7 eggs for the taking which is better than 0 which does happen to some women.

    Sounds like your last Cycle was a Flare Cycle. It might just be the luck of the draw this time in combination with the AMA. Does Wazza want you to take DHEA?? I'd definitely be taking Melatonin for egg quality.

    Am and sending prayers your embies go the distance to Day 5 and are biopsied!! Anything's possible!!

    P.S....I am rather fond of a snake or 2 myself!!! LOL!!!

    @BlondeinBrisvegas - I had a look at your numbers for your BFP (in signature) and am praying we might replicate them and get our miracle egg. I just don't have a good feeling after yesterday - might just be IVF-fatigue combined with a lurgy. Although we do produce pretty fragile embies as both DH and I have multiple issues.

    I've been in recovery when women have got zero. It's awful. Some have appeared to only be in their 20s. Just devastating. We only got Embryoscope spot yesterday, so whilst we are glad for us, I hope that means somebody's EPU got delayed and wasn't a horrid result. It was early morning so I don't imagine many EPUs had happened.

    I'm on all of Wazza's magical range, plus various PCOS bits and bobs. I double checked DHEA with him (after researching your comments about PCOS), and he said in my case he wants me on it, although he often wouldn't for PCOS. This is cycle 3 with him. For #1 and #2 I hadn't had much DHEA as we started ASAP for #1, so a week or two of DHEA before stopping to stim, and then #2 was back-to-back after TWW, so a day's worth as flare cycle. I'll talk to him about it some more and also flare vs down-reg. I've been on melatonin for 9 months (pre-Wazza).

    I hope one you are feeling better?

    Default IVF over 40 #26

    @Gagingi why thank you for the orgas info prior to ET.. I am about to overshare but we just had to make up for our directed abstinence on Valentines Day, as EPU is Monday. Only couple in Australia banned from having sexy time on Valentines day (apart from other IVF patients booked for EPU Mon). And we couldnt dtd today either with EPU rules. So we had to do next best. 😜💋 Didnt realise how uptight I felt till now! I wilk start baby aspirin Mon. Thanks all for the information. I really appreciate it.
    Congrats on the eggs and fertilised as well @Gagingi Hoping the 4 fertilised are strong and healthy for you. I am measuring with 5 mature at this stage, so I think you did exceptional.

    @Gagingi sorry you didn't get the numbers you were hoping for, I know that disappointment. I had empty follicles and it was a kick in the guts. Especially when you are used to getting good numbers (and then seeing them dwindle down so quickly) yes, lets hope those 4 are good quality, I don't think empty follicles is any indication of that.
    @Billie2 good luck with your 5 follicles, hope your trigger went off smoothly!

    Yes, I finally got the energy to end our 'drought' on friday night. 2 months worth. That's a shocker.

    Have been up since 3am with a vomiting DD (on top of cough/snotty nose)

    Have had to strip both our beds + 3 sets of clothes for her. She threw up all down the front of herself, Ex-DP & the loungeroom floor at 5am

    I bathed her while Ex-DP cleaned himself & the floor up. I called the Home Dr Service at 5.45am but our area is fully booked out so no go with them.

    Another home service don't start until 12 pm today so called a 3rd lot & am on the list though they couldn't tell me when a doctor would come. Said to call back in 4 hrs if he/she hasn't arrived

    DD's asleep on the lounge & I've just hung out my second load of washing. 1 to go. Have just walked down to the servo and back to grab a paper in the interim whilst sculling back a very strong home made percolated on the stove top in my Italian coffee pot skinny latte.

    Am booked in to see our GP tomorrow arvo anyway but don't want to wait that long just in case though DD has no temperature so prob just another virus from frucking DC or maybe the shopping centre yesterday???

    Happy bloody V-Day Everybody!!!

    P.S....On a brighter note, I did buy myself a box of Cadbury Roses yesterday for today and Christ knows it looks like I'm going to need the "sugar hit" to keep me going!!!

    Wish I was Nurse frigging Jackie!!! Would have an arsenal of "uppers" at my disposal then!!!
