    @Tahli your prog numbers sound fine/good to me from my readings over the years. I'm very inclined to agree with the notion that you just got a dud bunch of eggs/embryos that batch. Whilst my eggs are old, there is still great variation per cycle and then I had the one cycle where 50% of my follicles were empty - usually they all have eggs. When I asked Wazza about that he thought something was up with the cycle and changed meds about, but I also suspect diet or stress or something came into it. This next cycle was the one we just did and we got 17 eggs from 16 follicles, so there does seem to be a lot of variation.

    LB sounds like a biaitch. Can you get a new FS to see you through?

    Had my 28 week scan, bubs are 2lb11 and 2lb14 (1.2 and 1.3kg) right on target and jumping around like mad things. It's a nice change to have things work in our favour after all these years
    Heads are 7cm in diameter.. I like to use that as a guide to how big they are getting. I reckon a newborns head would be around 11cm across ?

    @Blossom Dr M is Dr Matthias the Reproductive Immunologist up in Sydney. Unfortunately Dr W at CFC can put a stop to me doing a fresh cycle as it's his clinic, but fingers crossed he's happy to take my money!
    Yeah, the hopeless loser feeling sucks, esp when 'excellent' quality B5AA's (the highest grading) and a hatching blast implant but don't progress past 14dpo. And my ED's three other recipient's have babies.
    I didn't go local because I didn't want to be part of a very personal marketing exercise. To have to be chosen. I was too tired. CT was swift and relatively easy I guess. Horses for courses.
    Congrats on your massively productive day! Good luck with the bank!!
    @Gagingi Ta hun. I'd love to blame it on the eggs but I'm not so sure. The only way I'll know is to use a new ED and see if I have a different response. A bl~~dy expensive experiment. I'd actually love to use the same donor as she gifted me 28 eggs.
    And yes, I'm going to have to source a local GP for my CT scripts and lining referrals etc. My GP wouldn't do it.

    Ah, I didn't realise your Doctor here owned the clinic in CT also. Bugger. So I guess it's just going to come down to whether he'll take your money or not. Can't see a problem with it myself, but I suppose it comes down to statistics for him too.

    I'm not sure what the problem is/was but I too suspect the eggs in this case. I'm kind of glad that even though your donor gave you many eggs, she is off the market. If nothing else it will give you a fairly definitive answer if you do another round and it doesn't take. I am crossing everything I have that that doesn't happen though, because as you say it is a bl00dy expensive exercise and a pretty high risk one too.

    How do you think you will proceed from here? Are you leaning towards any of your four options from the other day? It's funny, I clearly remember saying "Once I've given our own eggs one more shot, I'll be happy I've done everything I can, and that will be the end of our journey.

    Meanwhile..... It's bloody hard to concede defeat sometimes!

    (Not that I am saying you should! Just that I 'get it.')

    @winsor I think that is a lovely idea for your Bub. I started watching a repeat of compass this morning where people were making shrouds to remember loved ones. Some were for wrapping, others were made as wall hangings for remembrance. I couldn't watch all of it but I love the idea.

    Please do stay too. Going through IVF is like joining a bikie gang. Once you're in you're in for life. There's no unlearning the heartache of failed cycles or dashed hopes. But we can support and encourage others going through the same. Besides I think your journey hasn't ended yet.

    One of my fave quotes from a time where I had even more terrible things going on than even IVF has thrown at me is this:

    Everything will be Ok in the end.

    If it's not Ok it's not the end.

    @winsor your post was beautiful and thank you sharing your journey and time with Grace with us here. Please don't leave us behind as this thread wouldn't be the same without you. I love the idea that anytime you see that plant you will think of her. Does it have a scent?

    @Tahli I'm sorry to hear about the blood test result. Even though you know it's coming it still burns and it sounds like lb and anyone who works with her has just lost all levels of empathy which is disgusting really. You have a challenging road ahead but if anyone can find a way it's you. Reading about all the options makes my head spin! Im sorry I can't give any advice only encouragement x
