Yep, ta, I'm back on Aussie soil, at Perth Airport, and desperate for my own bed. I just walked past an Amcal pharmacy and a little wry smile crept onto my face. No of course I didn't. I'm only 6.5dpo. But it's nice to know I can in a few days time.
With my extra enthusiastic hatching blast I got a second line at 9dpo so I'm a day behind that with my expanding blasts. It'd be phenomenal to see any kind of second line, no matter how feint, or grey!, at 10dpo...but for me with 5 day blasts 12dpo is my turning point.
@Blossom74 it's a totally different kettle of fish with a fresh day 2 embryo. Please, please hold onto hope hun.
@Bongley what day did you get your BFP with DS2? Actually he was a hatching blast wasn't he?

@Kookii I did a cpl of cycles at a low cost clinc in conjunction with dr m's protocol. They weren't that happy, but still took my money!
I then did 4 stim cycles at a high cost clinic who do believe in immune issues, but not dr m, I just told them I would follow their instructions for ivf and dr m for immune and if they had an issue I would go elsewhere. Once again they took my money.
I think after a while I just developed a thick skin where I wasn't going to just blindly follow what they said as I felt they all had their own agendas and while me getting pregnant was one of them, it wasn't number one for them-making a profit was. So I took my medical journey into my own hands, did research, tests and spoke to people and made up my own mind and wouldn't take no for an answer.
I followed my gut and insisted on pgd which showed my eggs were duds so moved to donor egg wth immune treatment and I'm due in 4 weeks. - I had the same convo with my ob about seeing dr m and him too!
@tuxcat I second @JulieMalooley about not thinking differently because this baby didn't start with my egg. But she is def mine. And judging by my 3D scan pics it looks like she has my nose and mouth and mannerisms, which if you believe in epigenetics is slightly possible, but not something I thought would happen. But she doesn't appear to look like our donor so you never know!
@Blossom74 I haven't given up hope for you yet!🙏
@JulieMalooley I love the pic of your daughter! I can't believe you're up to the baby shower stage of your pregnancy and I'm still prattling on about tortoises at The Vineyard!! I hope when you go back for your next 3/4d scan you'll get some clearer pics for prosperity. Has anything changed in you since seeing their little little faces and bodies? Did your rock solid DP go with you dressed in a collared shirt? Maybe your babies could buy Daddy a new collared shirt for when he meets them in the delivery room!
Tahli he was fully hatched! I was on ovidrel boosters however so I always had a line, it was a matter of figuring out if it wasn't fading and getting darker which was tricky. I would have been interested to see when the squinter appeared.
@Blossom74 stay strong! I know it's so hard when you get that sinking feeling but I think my first BFP was on DPO12.
@Kookii welcome. I think this thread should be the 'IVF over 40' and blend of the 'long term warrior IVF women' thread that used to be on bub hub.
So sorry about your loss
Tahli, I can't believe you remembered that ! Hehee. No, he did ask me what he should wear though. And no, nothing has changed really as we have already had so many scans and they really still seem like little strangers to me. It's going to be weird having babies shoved into my arms and trying to feel like they're really mine. I still can't imagine or believe it..
Another stark white BFN @BIB.
I think Baby Cakes is not coming
