@Xxsmileyxx93 Thank you. Yes, my clinic claims to have invented the embryo glue, so it is part of their normal protocol. It's nice to have someone to be on the dreaded 2ww with! When's your BT? Mine is Wednesday 18th but I probably won't get results until the Thursday.

Oh haha fair enough, early on the 18th and I get my results back the same day. It is nice to be doing it with someone hopefully we get BP !
So the lovely embryologist at our clinic (as opposed to the negative one we had for transfer yesterday) rang today with an update of our remaining 5 embryos. 2 had made it to compacting morula stage. Rather than take our chances and hope they made it to day 7 for PGD testing, we made another difficult decision and froze those 2 today. When I asked the embryologist if they've ever had success with freezing day 5 morulas before, she said absolutely and that it was how they always used to do it before PGD was around. Feel relieved to have some frozen. You never know, the remaining 2 that we are leaving to develop until Monday (day 7) might have a turn around. Stranger things have happened right?!
Has anyone else frozen day 5 morulas?
Hi ladies, I have my egg collection booked for 10:30am on Monday but I'm a bit bummed out. This is my second fresh cycle using different drugs. First cycle was Gonal F and this cycle is Menopur and Omnitripe. In the first cycle I was really bloated and they got 14 eggs. This time I don't feel anything at all, no bloating or discomfort. They could see 10 measurable follies on Thursdays ultrasound. I'm worried they won't find any eggs in there because I don't feel anything. Has anyone had a similar experience and produced eggs for collection ?
Annie85 I had this same experience with Menopur. I hd two cancelled cycles on gonal f as I had early stages OHSS and couldn't even stand up straight I was so bloated. Day before my EPU on my menopur cycle I was worried my follicles had shrunk as I didn't feel a thing. I only had two eggs after pick up but it only takes one in the end. I think this whole process of IVF we will always be worrying about something so just trust you FS and your body. Sorry I didn't want to scare you, I'm sure you will get more than me as I didn't have that many follies! Good luck xx

Annie85 Like you, I didn't feel as bloated on Menopur. My ultrasound this time showed 11 follies and I was told that 8 would be the right size. I got 12 eggs and they were all mature. 7 fertilized, compared to round 1 on Gonal, of which only 9 were mature and only 3 fertilized. The embryos also got a lot further with their development than our Gonal round. I think I've said before on this thread... I don't know whether it was thanks to the Menapur or Orgalatron, but we certainly got better results. My FS told me that Menopur is more natural because it contains some real human growth hormone, which could explain why we experience less bloating. I know it's easier said than done, but try not to worry, 10 measurable follies is great and they wouldn't be going ahead with retrieval if they weren't confident you'd get eggs. Hugs! What is your FS putting in place to encourage development post retrieval?
Hi everyone I hope you're having a great weekend. My BT is tomorrow so the TWW is almost over! I've been tracking my progress through home tests and the second line is now darker than the test line. So nervous about tomorrow!! ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1462682069.522836.jpg
