    @infinity888 - remember what the psychic told you!
    @Tahli- that's great news about another donor .

    Eva Mendes is pregnant (presumably naturally ) at 42. I'm having a drink. Just sayin.

    @faithlovehope I'm with Monash @Tahli @infinity888 Do you stop melatonin and CQ10 ? I've just kept going with them the whole time - i thought it was just for egg quality so doesn't matter if you continue after EPU and transfer

    I've not so far got any further than a caveating morula at day 5 - even after a lot of googling it still seems a less likely positive. Not impossible though


    Depending on how it goes I'll be looking at DE next. I have a good friend who is adopted and although it's not the same it was interesting to get her take on the process.
    It has taken a good year to get my head around it and I've felt maybe more self conscious about doing it because I'm single now but definitely will be ready to go ahead by the end of the year.
    I had thought finding a DE here would be much harder but it seems really successful

    Food guilt admission - i had a beautiful italian pasta lunch inc Tiramasu and then home to more pasta that my flatmate had made. I might not be pregnant but i'm sure going to look it !

Any ideas about this?

    @Tahli i think coq10 is for egg quality so no need to take it post transfer. Not sure if there is another reason

    Ok...Did a bit of quick research and it seems that 1xCrinone is equal to 400-600mg's of compounded vaginal progesterone...pessaries basically.

    The Crinone is absorbed a bit differently to the pessaries, so the fact it contains 90mg's of P4 vs 200mg's of P4 in the pessaries isn't an issue Luv ok?? Plus you're also going to have the Pregnyl injections as well that is going to make your body produce more progesterone as well as the Ralovera tablets so you're well covered

    If you're worried, get some blood tests done in the 2WW to check that your P4 levels are adequate

    Hi guys hope everyones had a good day. I cant recall who was asking about de and telling etc. Ive mentioned here previously but ive got a 20 yr old son who was openly adopted by my best friends i was very young at the time. In nz open adoptions at the time werent that common and it has worked out well ive always been part of his life and he gets where he belongs and there is none of secrecy or secrets going on. The only issue he had at school was when asked to draw his family tree and grandparents etc he kept saying which ones with 8 sets of gparents and around 40 plus aunties and uncles!! I used to babysit for him regularly when we lived in the same city he stays with his grandparents my parents a lot and i think the openess has really made a huge difference.

    Pred at 10mg is the gentlest, 25mg turned me into a walrus. I was on 10mgs when I got a BFP with the hatching blast with hcg of 100, on 25mgs I got a BFN, changed to Dex and got another BFP (last cycle) but didn't get to registering on hcg blood test. Maybe just the 10mg Pred?
    @JulieMalooley You think I'm insane ditching the full immune protocol don't you??
    Not at all. Go progesterone, preg multi and 10mg of pred I reckon (plus the unavoidables like synarel)

    That's interesting about the crinone. I was going to sell mine (but it is turning out like facebook selling 😉) so I might just keep it if no one commits now that I know this. I always assumed it was only 90 hense my selling it wazza has me on 1200 a day minimum which I thought was = to 13 crinone 😂and there is no way I am doing 13 crinone in one day . Oh my just the thought makes me shudder.
    @infinity888 how's your bowel issue going now better after EPU? Wazza's meds yes it is so hard to remember them all. I write myself a list up with them all and jot am/pm beside each med.
    @Blossom74 is righty feeling any better today luv xo
    @Tahli quality doesn't always matter as others have said average ones can be great too. So when do you fly out? Was in next week or week after?
    Not much to report from today made an egg plant lasagna for dinner. You use egg plant instead of pasta it is delicious.
