    I mean I totally agree with everything your all saying.. I think sometimes a reminder just helps though doesn't it?? It's good to hear it from others.

    I have to say physically I don't feel too old, I'm in really good health, am fit, active, people think my sister and I are twins when they meet us and she is 34 so I know I don't look my age either. My friend had her DE baby at 50. And she has never regretted it. She's 52, and probably going back for number 2 this year 😊
    Awesome, I love hearing stories like your friend's! Good on her!

    Hi ladies ive been working far too much as usual but trying to follow along. Beautifully written @faithandhopellove. @Charlie74 we all need a boost sometimes.

    AFM i started stims today. Bt says estrogen was 273 and they like it to be under 200. Would progynova effect this as i started those yesterday??? I really don't want this cycle to be a bust already.

    Good afternoon ladies. What lovely words you've been exchanging! It makes my heart warm!!

    How is everyone going in this cycle?

    I had my second scan today. The doc seemed a little disappointed by the results but it was better than my first so I was cautiously happy. Looks like five follicles with a couple of hidden maybes. My lefty is a slippery little b*gger and difficult to see on the scan. EPU Thursday.

    From there the plan is if there are four or more embies two will be transferred day 5. Less than four there will be day 3 transfer of two (if there are two). Does anyone know why they would do this?

    Holy moly, that's something to get excited about. You know this will be the first birth I've heard about since joining The Hub over a year ago?

    So exciting!

    Hi @rockalee
    I asked my FS about transferring on day 3 as on my last DE cycle none made it to day 5. My FS said day 3 transfers are " bull**** science"
    He said if the embryo does not make it to day 5 in the lab it won't result in a pregnancy. I know plenty of people have had success with day 3 transfers but the success rate is 20% less than day 5 transfers.
    He said clinics transfer on day 3 if it looks like none will make it to day 5 so they make more money.
    Maybe just his opinion but worth asking your clinic the evidence for transferring at different days

    I've got everything crossed for you too lovely

    I hope this is the cycle that brings your Golden Egg out from hiding

    Well I think that is a fab result hon! You've done better with 5 follies than I have on all of my stims. And you know what they say - you only need one

    I'm not sure why your FS would be taking that approach but he must have his reasons. My FS always likes to try and pop one back in straight away, but then I don't tend to get many that make it to Day 5 - only the little one I lost last year.

    Wishing you all the very best and I can't wait to hear you're PUPO very, very soon

    Interesting. I'm not 100% convinced either way to be honest. I know my FS has always said that the ideal environment for an emby is inside Momma and well, who can argue with that? It's the way nature intended after all. But I do tend to think that a 'good' emby - that is, a genetically sound one, will make it to Day 5 comfortably in a petri dish just as well as it would inside you.

    The thing with 2 and 3 day transfers (I've had both done) is that you just don't know how they will turn out. You could have a grade C emby put in at Day 3 only to have it perish, or it could adjust well and develop to a Grade B whilst inside you.

    It's just a big betting game I reckon! The universe has a plan and if it's meant to be it will be.

    good luck for your induction/birth @Chiefsgirl - in case it happens quickly and I don't get a chance to say it beforehand. exciting

    exciting for your OB appt & morphology scan too @Bongley
    @faithandhopellove beautiful words. well said
    @Charlie74 I *wish* I was 41, maybe I wouldn't have had to do ivf, who knows. my sister had her first pg at 39 with birth at 40. will never know now, but I didn't meet DP until after I was 42, start ivf tests early 43 & first cycle 43.8, almost 44. so I think you have plenty of time yet


    afm, I had my follow up appt with midwife today for scan. lost it in the u/s waiting room after more & more young pg ladies & one with a cute toddler kept coming in to sit nearby. saw another girl who'd been talking in the initial waiting room about how she was possibly miscarrying - she later walked out in tears so I could tell she was having a bad day like mine a couple of weeks ago. scan was ok but the tech wanted to get the doctor to check something. they didn't answer the page so she did it all again and then we waited for results (DP came too which was good when the tears started). the midwife said it looked like a complete mc but there was some "loculate free fluid on left adnexa" (near a couple of simple cysts that have been there since oct cycle last year). so I have to take results to GP and have another scan in 6 weeks to check the fluid has been absorbed. not really sure what this all means but hoping it's something harmless. she said it could have been from the meds in the cycle but I said I had a natural cycle and no meds since october apart from progesterone. I also spoke to the counselor which was good - not as scary/uncomfortable as I was expecting. we discussed my history, the pg, mc/loss, and donor & how it worked at RPA and other options. she said it was good I was reflecting on some of the issues surrounding it all and said my reactions were all normal. so that was good. have had headaches all afternoon since so rested & took the whole day as a sick day instead of half. was emotionally drained - being back there really hit me this time. I thought I'd been going ok so far
