    @Lastround I don't know much about immune issues but I would definitely be looking into further investigations. Sending you hugs and hoping the vodka has kicked in.

    I think the universe owes us a few BFP's on this site. C'mon Baby Cakes.

    Anyone here looked at hiring/buying a doppler? Don't know if I am losing it but I feel like I need that reassurance.

    Hi hon I think it's only understandable that you'd be feeling nervous with everything you're going through ATM. Never had the need for a doppler myself but the one comment I have heard several times over is that unless you really know what you're doing with them they can induce more worry than if you never had one. I think sometimes for the un-experienced hand it can still be difficult to find a HB depending on how bubs is lying. Still, if you think it's a good move and will bring you reassurance, go for it! If you're not entirely sure though I reckon your Doctor would surely prescribe extra scans periodically to ease your mind, especially in light of your circumstances.

I feel though that it's been money down the drain however the FS reckons it's just a numbers game. The new clinic charges a LOT more but will do Pgd and lap which I figure I need at this stage but I'm just so desperate to get going again. I think it's because my brother will be due in June and I just so desperately want to be pregnant by then (and a long time ago too).

    Hmmm, honestly? I reckon I'd wait. Not because you're not getting the numbers or the gradings, but I reckon PGD testing is probably the way to go. I, of all people, should know that an A Grade emby might look lovely on screen but when you get to the core of it may not necessarily be The One. I understand the want/need to get pregnant ASAP, but more importantly than that - you need to get pregnant and be able to hold onto it. PGD testing might bring you that final and most important step.

    Your choice entirely though hon!

    @Blossom74 Insomnia sux Luv!!

    It's something that affects me too due to my "mental health issues"

    Anyhoo...I do hope you've ended up being able to get some more shut-eye!!

    and prayers being sent we start to see Baby Cakes making an appearance on the FRER's from tomorrow onwards!!!

    Today's probably still a wee bit early, but a squinter would still be more than welcome wouldn't it????

    Great news @Tahli. It's great to laugh after transfer too. a bit of release of positive emotions is brilliant and feels so good. My DH had me in hysterics when everyone left us in the little room. Was joking about them delivering a pizza through the little window, etc. Sounds dumb now but at the time was hilarious and felt to so good. Keep up the positive thoughts Hun. Watch something funny on the plane and try to relax. Hoping this is your turn now for bfp.

    It would, but unfortunately whilst I did POAS this morning there was nothing
    to be seen. It is such a long wait after a 2 day transfer, I'm starting to feel the pressure now. Last time after my 5dt I only had to wait 6 days and I had my line. Now I'm 8 days past transfer (10dpo) and nothing! My saner self is trying to tell my crazy self that IT IS NORMAL TO SEE NOTHING YET, and YES, YOU COULD STILL BE PREGNANT!

    (I put that in capitals so I can come back and remind myself later on lol)

Your frosties may be younger than you though and I think the younger you are the more relevant grading probably has on likelihood of success because the chromosome factor doesn't come into it to the same extent.
    What's PGD? Where is Bris is Wazza?

    @faithhopellove I have a doppler from my first BFP. I liked using it but my partner doesn't. It is very difficult to find a heartbeat at times, you'd be surprised at how tricky it is! I agree it may cause more angst... but it might make you feel more secure, it does help me but I don't get too worried if I can't find a heartbeat.
