    @Blossom74 One's better than none Luv so you're still in the game with a chance!!!

    No doubt you're worrying about whether your emby will make it until tomorrow but it will, I have no doubt!!! I second getting the ural into you or some Cranberry juice etc and taking it easy today.

    and prayers being sent for a lovely 2-4 cell emby for transfer tomorrow!!!!


    @Tahli Whoot-Whoot!!! You go Girl!!!

    Your lining just keeps getting better and better!! 8.5mm's is beautiful!!!

    Bugger about the vein though!! Hopefully the heat pack opens up the larger one enough for the Nurse to find a spot past the scar tissue to get the drip in. What about the veins in your hand (metacarpal veins) or the cephalic vein (runs along the radial side on the forearm) or the basilic vein (runs along the ulnar side but has a tendency to roll)?????

    Drink a large glass of water etc too to try to open them up more too Luv.

    @Tahli is the vein they are using in your hand? My intralipids were injected through my hand as we're all the other ladies in the room bar one who was in pain so they switched to her arm.

    @Blossom74 oh you poor thing, it is so stressful waiting for the results isn't it. You've got 1 and its what most of us actually end up with anyway so just cross everything you own and we will too. We're all cheering that little bugger on to keep dividing Good luck for transfer and rest up. That pain sounds like it should be looked at too.

    @Tahli yay for the burger and not so yay for the pain!! its making me squirm thinking about veins and pain..ouch! My veins are terrible so I'd hate to think..

    @midnite01 we have a BEAUTIFUL coffee machine called the Otto. Its now called the little guy though as he had to change the name. We love it, its based on an Italian machine from the 60s called the Atomic, so its a piece of beautiful design as well as great coffee They sell them in myer I think these days, it was around $700 when we bought it. At my work they have a nespresso (delonghi) and its ok. I don't think it ever makes the coffee hot enough, but is quick if thats what you want. I also don't like the capsule thing, ours takes real coffee so you can use different types and is probably cheaper because of that. Theres 2 different sized filters so you have to work out what coffee grind works best in each thing. Its awesome and I totally recommend it - we've had ours for 3-4 years and its still going strong. I think the rubber seals need a replacement every so often and it ay need a service at some point but i imagine it will be working for years to come. Also its actually a stove top machine, we have a special induction hot plate that they sell as it sits on it and it turns itself off if you happen to leave it on, which is why we got it as DH kept leaving the gas on by accident so we had to get the seals replaced in it not long after buying it because of it.

    that pic shows the induction plate too

    @Blossom74 yay for your one to transfer tmw, one is all you need!
    @Tahli that's a great lining! Poo about your vein tho! I only have one vein to get blood out of and its becoming ****e now with all the scar tissue!
    @midnite01 we have a fully automatic saeco coffee machine. It takes beans, grinds them and then pours out espresso, long blacks, long coffees etc. manual milk frother on the side. I think we paid about $1500 for it a few years ago, but use it everyday and have no issues with it at all.

    I don't like the pod machines myself, I'd rather go plunger coffee than that! We take a stovetop percolater type pot camping that's how much I hate instant coffee!

    Here is s pic of our machine ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1456986759.935234.jpg

    Hi ladies just sharing something that i hope no one ever uses. Its a pet emergency card kept in your purse/wallet. Says my pet is home alone if i am sick or injured please call this number. Very clever way of looking after our fur babies. I'm sure you all probably know about this but just in case.

    That's a great idea @infinity888 and no I've never heard of it.
    Great news on your lining @Tahli - it's all coming together for you. Except for your slimline veins of course . I hope you eventually got those intralipids in.
    Unless I've missed it, still waiting on a bump shot from @faithandhopellove !

    a question - if hcg was falling, at what rate would it fall? does anyone know?
    I'm getting a bit crazy. I did a digital test and it said 3+ weeks so I *think* thats >2000. if my hcg was falling would you expect it to go 3790 -> less than 2000 in 4.5 days? I thought it would be lower by now (if it was falling). sorry, grasping at straws atm and hoping it's not falling

    good luck for EPU tomorrow @Blossom74. you'll be PUPO, exciting!

    @winsor you poor thing. I don't know the answer to your question, I don't think its simple, and can be different in everyone. Ive had hcg thats taken weeks and weeks to go down after a blighted ovum, it got up to 14000 and still wasn't viable. My IVF pg my only negative signs were a little bit of spotting and cramping at 6 weeks but then nothing. So its not going to tell you anything really either way. The levels can keep going up and its not good news. I feel like the clinics doing more bloods is just torturous to people, because if something doesn't quite add up you just stress out. The only way to tell is the scan unfortunately. Because I never had repeat bloods I couldn't tell you what my numbers were. Its such a hard wait, in all honesty I would be hoping for good news (obviously) but a little prepared for not so good news, make sure you have your DP with you just in case. But its just impossible to know, the worry just continues unfortunately as we saw a HB and then it went pear shaped. And I don't know if RPA now get you to see them after it but if anything isn't exactly as it should be (measuring right on for dates) make sure you call them and ask - I didn't have any follow up with mine and got the report in the mail to say it was measuring 1 week behind (and i FREAKED out) and that i should have a repeat scan, but my GP didn't think it was necessary. It would have been picked up much earlier and caused less grief rather than finding out at the 12 week scan.

    Try and not focus on it (impossible i know) but there really is no way of knowing, all you can do is hope for the best and we are all hoping with you

    thanks @tuxcat. yes, we're hoping for the best but preparing for the worst at the same time. DP is being very supportive which is good. yes, I think I get a letter afterwards. thanks for the follow-up tip. I think you're right - I think I'd prefer not to have had the BT this week as it's been driving me a bit mad, and since there's nothing I could have done this week anyway it might have been nicer to wait for scan - though it has given me some time to prepare for the worst so if it is bad news it wouldn't be a bigger shock on monday. trying to keep busy with work and uni but have been rather distracted.
