    @Tahli Right you are Luv, am making a note for Thursday on the whiteboard!!!


    I don't think it takes all that long to thaw an emby does it?? Oooh...I just found this:

    The cells (embryos in this case) are stored in liquid nitrogen after a controlled freeze by special machinery. Embryo freezing takes several hours while the thaw process takes about 30-45 minutes. Embryos have been successfully thawed after cryopreservation for as many as 13 years.
    Embryo Freezing at the Genetics & IVF Institute


    Soooooo....with that in mind, if you asked for an afternoon transfer, then you'd have the morning to thaw the embryo's out one at a time if you needed to??? If you're going to transfer 2, then they could thaw 2 out in the morning and give them a wee bit of time before transfer to see how they re-expand and then if 1 isn't going so well, they could thaw out the other if you wanted them to couldn't they???

    The other FS I'm seeing has said I should have intrapilids. A month before and the just before transfer. Does this sound right?
    I'm awfully confused

    All these pics of food and talking is making me hungry. But I too am trying to be good.....
    You could ask for Clexane Luv or just get onto the baby aspirin and take that instead if your FS says no.

    No, I haven't been. Just gritting my teeth and going for it!

    Re the Crinone, I take 2 per day morning and evening.

    I just came accross this interesting article about embryo's Lovelies:

    http://www.miracleswaiting.org/factsembryos.html

    A very interesting read indeed!!!


    I used to do 2xCrinone once in the morning and once at night and have a clean out in the shower every 2-3 days.

    @Blossom74 I also used to ice my stomach for about 3-5 minutes prior to doing the Clexane injection. I found it took the sting right out of it and helped minimise bruising for me.

    If it's still feeling a bit ouchy afterwards, just put the ice pack back on for another couple of minutes. I used a bag of frozen peas in a tea towel more often than not!!!

    Thanks @BIB

    And thanks also for the link. I read bits and pieces of it but steered away from the Gradings part, lest it put doubt into my mind about Baby Cakes's chance of survival. I don't need any negativity in my mind about that right now.

    I prefer to think BC stands just as good a chance as any other emby. By today I think he is meant to be a blasto? I think that's right? He was a 2 day transfer on Friday. So by my calculations if all is well (and why shouldn't it be?) he should hatch tomorrow and attach to my lining on Wednesday. I am going to POAS tomorrow and watch my Ovidrel fade away, before (hopefully) I see the lines start to get darker.

    I am also going to be on the lookout from Thursday onwards for implantation bleeding. I know it's not a sure bet but I did have that with Blossom.
