    Hi @Blossom74 thanks for thinking of me. I've been going along ok, moving on Saturday and a bit overwhelmed with appointments, packing, work, etc. just hanging out for maternity leave.

    I've been reading along daily/hourly but sometimes I get so sad/angry/frustrated when things don't work out for people. I feel a bit guilty I guess. It's not fair when I was in their shoes not so long ago. I know that pain and heartbreak when some idiot announces their pregnancy and guess what they weren't even trying.

    I feel bad for all the amazing ladies who put their bodies through the ringer (@tahli!) and spend what should be a house deposit or a few fantastic holidays on a failed cycle.

    Every one of you here deserve your BFP and I genuinely hope it happens. By some miracle I got lucky I guess and I wish I knew what I did or how I did it and I would make sure to tell you all 😄

    Interesting article @Tahli unless it's just the clinic that won't do it but she did specifically say it was a US law. I'd probably push it more if the embryos weren't Pgd tested normal. Mind you I transferred 2 "normal" embryos last time that didn't stick. Sigh.

    @Charlie74 I've just asked my CFC nurse if I can have my 2nd lining scan the day after I start my Gestone. My 2nd scan really serves no purpose other than seeing if being on estrogen for an extra week has done anything. Last cycle it only boosted it a further .5mm. Anyway I asked what happens to lining once you start on progesterone and this was her responce...
    "No, it shouldn’t shrink the lining, however it changes the composition of the cells for the endometrium. It changes them from being proliferative to secretary."

    She's all good now thanks Luv

    I figured out it was the bloody cheese that was doing it to her. I moved from block to shredded in the packet (same brand) and her tummy can't tolerate it for some reason??

    Anyhoo...it's cheese singles (which I know she can tolerate) all the way from here on in and Soy milk until she's about 3-4 then the Paed said to try cow's milk again to see how she goes as hopefully her digestive system will be more equipped/mature to handle it.

    And here's a shameless copy and paste in plain frucking english for the rest of us!!!

    These are great questions to discuss with your gynecologist in person. The endometrium is the lining of the uterus. It provides a fertile environment for a fetus to implant. Menstruation is the monthly shedding of the old endometrium, so that it can be replaced with a fresh layer that is optimal for a new fetus to have the opportunity to implant. The menstrual cycle consists of two phases. The first phase, under the influence of estrogen, is a proliferative phase. In other words, estrogen stimulates the endometrium to grow and thicken. While under this influence of the estrogen, the endometrium is called "proliferative endometrium," because the cells are multiplying and the tissue is growing. Once ovulation occurs (and an egg is available to be fertilized), your body secretes progesterone, which matures the endometrium and makes it the ideal hospitable environment for the fertilized egg to implant. During this phase, the endometrium is called "secretory endometrium."

    I forgot to mention. On the last day of my last (non ivf) cycle I was reading about 'resting hcg levels' on here and I thought 'I wonder....'. So yep, as insane as it felt, I POAS. I was surprised to see an absolute miniscule hinter of a squinter. I've just relooked at the test now, 12 days later, and it's dried into a second line. Interesting.
