    Ladies a quick question on this goodiest of good Friday's.

    When you say you've done 3 cycles do you mean stim cycles or total stim and fet cycles? Not knowing has me confused in all sorts of ways.

    When I say I've done 4 cycles of IVF I am referring to 4 full stims. I don't count the FET's.

    @Caesardust when I say cycle I mean a full stim cycle too and a FET is just a FET. However I have noticed that some people call FETs a cycle... In the scientific literature they seem to refer to cycles as a full stim and FETs as an embryo transfer.

    Yep...I always refer to full stims as well. FET's I've always classed as "transfers"..not that I ever did any mind you...just how I think of it.

    thanks. yes I think my heart is now bigger & perhaps misshapen with her and the other losses fused to it. my tummy may be empty but my heart is fuller than ever. I've been looking at artists' representations of loss and mc and it's often a part missing - a hole in belly. I think I'd add to the heart too. it's like there's a hole and an extra part at the same time

    thanks @tuxcat and @Blossom74. we've agreed on most of the things - had similar thoughts. I'll keep researching a bit more to start with. usually once we decide we go for it straight away - all my major life decisions have happened like this. there's a turning moment. I'm still grieving Gracie and always will in some way, but I think we need a path forward too as I can't change what happened to her and I'm so grateful to her for all she gave us and especially me during her short time

    Yes @Blossom74 I did make up a word. Do you like it?

    Thanks for the clarification on the cycles lovelies. I feel better somewhat knowing I'm going into my fourth cycle soon.

    I had a new lady do my waxing last night and she was one of those ones who was ttc for years. Moved to ivf and voila. Pregnant on first cycle. 😓😓
