It's a bit early to POAS yet then @HillDweller. Leave it a few more days!
@mrsthomo sorry to hear you won't be going ahead with transfer. I hope you fs has a plan for you!
I had my first u/s today and I have about 10 follies, the biggest around 10mm. At this stage it doesn't look like I'll be having my retrieval Monday but we will know more on Friday!
Congratulations @Cooki!! And sorry to hear the sad news @lotsathoughts. @mrsthomo sorry to hear about the OHSS... I was worried I might develop that as I have 16 follicles in my right ovary alone! Feeling super bloated atm.
EPU scheduled for Friday morning. My lucky number is 7, so anything above that and I'll be happy. Over 25 follicles to choose from though so fingers crossed they're good ones!
@lotsathoughts so sorry about your news. It is never easy hearing those results no matter how prepared you think you are.
@mrsthomo sorry about them holding off your transfer. I got OHS as well first time. I feel for you! They collected 29 eggs so I was VERY bloated and sore. Felt like I couldn't breathe! I think it's a good thing to wait and let yourself recover.
So, after about 4 tests all showing a faint positive, today I did a digital and it said 'NO'. Not what I wanted to see that's for sure. I know some digitals aren't as sensitive so will test one more time before bloodtest but I'm pretty sure I'm out yet again.
Sending everyone positive thoughts x
Thanks ladies for your support. You're all so nice and I love being part of these groups. Xx
@Cooki when do you get your next BETA? It's so nerve wracking after you get the positive. You finally have something so amazing and you don't want to lose it. I hope those numbers keep multiplying nicely.
@mrsthomo lucky DH did take Friday off! I'm just sorry it wasn't for the best reason now. You really need to take it easy if they're wanting to see you again soon. Fingers crossed your body is able to recover soon.
AFM my next step is to wait until May 20th for my next appointment with my local fertility specialist. I have already met him but we didn't discuss plans... he told me in that meeting that it would be cheaper to fly to Syd rather than transport my frozen embryo here. But now I actually need to see him and talk about our new protocol for a stim cycle.
After the nurse called m, my FS called and he said he wouldn't change anything with my last stim cycle. My lining was thin but he thinks that's just me! And it did get up to 6.1 this time (an improvement). So we'll see what the new FS says.
Also in that call I took the opportunity to thank him for giving me the greatest gift in the world...my DD. I told him how grateful I was that he had given us the opportunity to be a family. I was walking back from the shops with my DD in the pram as I took this call and after I hung up I was walking down the street crying. I think it was a mixture of sadness and being grateful. I know I'm so lucky. I would eternally be grateful to this man for this reason. I realise so many others are not as lucky as I am. So I appreciate everyone being so kind to me, but I think others have a much tougher journey than I do. I would love to give my DD a sibling...but I also realise how damn lucky I am to have her in the first place.
@mrsthomo I’m really sorry to hear about your OHSS. I hope you recover soon!!
@MrsSMS congrats on being PUPO! That’s awesome that you got to have a little mini-break as well - sounds wonderful
@Cooki congrats on your BFP! What wonderful news!! Yay x a lot
@lotsathoughts even when you know it’s BFN it still sucks getting that phonecall
@HillDweller I am so wishing you to get a BFP and to see the two lines!!
@MusicalMumma good luck for your EPU on Friday. 25 follicles is awesome - I’m sure there’ll be plenty of good eggs in there!
@Sunnysummers I hope you get a better result in a few days. When is your BT?
AFM I am apparently ovulating tomorrow so have a transfer scheduled for Tuesday. Aiming to be as relaxed as possible for transfer, and hoping that it will be in the afternoon so I can just take the rest of the day off (come to think of it, maybe I should just take the whole day off…)
