    @Tahli I am thinking the Zen cycle with the donated embies too. It's tricky because you want to do the right thing by your generous benefactor but the full immune protocol might just be too stressful to organise by your deadline. Plus the extra costs. I also think that your own DE cycle eggs have had some sort of incompatibility with you. Trying eggs from a different donor might just do the trick. If not then you have more money left to go the full everything but the kitchen sink on a fresh DE cycle later this year. I don't know about the triple transfer. Between you and Vix we could be known as the thread with the 2 women who had triplets!

    I'd put all 3 back Luv on a "Zen Cycle" & see what happens if it were me & I didn't want to do a fresh Cycle.

    I'd leave the other frozen emby where it is & either put it with fresh embies from a fresh Cycle or with the frozen excess embies from a fresh Cycle.

    @amie999 I had some large follies and some mid range on my second last cycle. The mid range ones were the ok ones. The large follies were empty (not sure if I ovulated them or they were always empty). Did they tell you what your oestrogen level was? That is sometimes a better indicator of the number of eggs than the follicle numbers are.

    @Tahli that sounds ok to me and at least it lessens the chance of triplets I suppose...? I certainly wouldn't discard them if that's what they are alluding to ? @infinity888 congrats and good luck for a double transfer on Monday !!

    I need to get up the courage to talk to the FN about our frosties grade. I am thinking they are going to be Cr#p and part of me doesn't want to know. But that's for next year. Second cot will have to wait a little longer to be filled. Big Bubba is yet to arrive. The OB is happy with this Bubba's progress so far. Little Bubba is now taking up only 10% of the space.

    @Blossom74 Thank you !.
    They don't give me proper answers just - they were ok or good. No rating. But i am going to really get into it all when i'm up there this time.
    Its far too hard to get any information in depth.
    @faithlovehope Thats giving me a bit of hope ! Was that what ended up being the BFP ?
    Was it a donor cycle or your eggs ?

    I'm feeling a bit defeated at the moment - sure its just a stage.
    I only know that the blood were on track but will ask for actual numbers Monday.

    Booked for Wed egg pick up now and a little bit anxious at the uneven sizes.
    What the ideal folly size ? 18-22 ? Does anyone know what happens if they leave a leading big one ? My Friday scan had one at 27.
    I think that ones supposed to be over mature although im not too sure what that means.
    Hey @amie999, we never get told either, we just get the early/fully expanded etc no actual grades with Im thankful for. I usually find something to stress about anyway so having more information than that would just mean I'd be nervously looking through google trying to find success stories. I guess there are always stories where people have less than ideal embies become babies so its never a guarantee. Just ask though if you want to know.

    I think 18-22 is probably ideal but maybe over 22 is ok too, but maybe 27 is too big. don't know


    Has anyone taken Progynova just before they get AF before? I was just wondering whether it delays AF? I started taking it on tuesday night, twice a day (about 5 days before AF is due) and have definitely been feeling the effects from it and don't feel so much like AF is coming so wondered if that will hold it off at all? Its basically estrogen..

    We got a chemical pregnancy on that cycle. I think it would have worked except that I had a bulky uterus from adenomyosis that needed treatment. Our cycles have all been OE.

    My clinic never gave me specifics on quality either. Are you guys with Genea?

    This is what I am doing now taking progynova 4 per day and provera 1 per day. My understanding is that I am to stop it all next week though just prior to AF when I get my plan next week I will know more. Sorry not overly helpful really.

    On cycle 4 and 6 I had good implantation. The best was cycle 4 with a hatching blast & B5AB and a fairly simple protocol compared to cycle 6 with 2 x B5AAs and a full immune protocol.
    I feel psychologically ready for a chilled out Zen cycle!!
    @Bongley If you have a moment, would you mind posting the details of your successful natural FET. I'm wondering how much of it I could follow.
    @Tahli Halloo! My first BFP in 2012 was a fresh transfer on day 5. He was a grade 2 early blastocyst, nothing special my FS described it after the fact. (so I guess from faiths post he would have been a B2 or something like that)

    For my DE FET in Nov my FS wanted me to do a natural cycle but my cycles are too irregular. So I did two 'programmed' FETs (BFNs) and my BFP was a stimulated cycle (with immune meds). So I stimmed with gonal F and triggered with Ovidrel and put back the DE embryo on day 5.

    Hope that helps!
