I'd calculated from an online calculator that I was 6 weeks today (based on FET date), but FS's receptionist counted first 2 weeks as the day I started progesterone (which was 6 days before FET). So that makes tomorrow 6 weeks. Either way your numbers are impressive!
    Then that would make @Molros 6+2 today (and my maths way off earlier as well!!!) based on a 5 day transfer on the 11th.

    yeah thats the same as my clinic. Nerve-wracking times!!! Hows things going with you - do you have much in the way of symptoms?

    It's tough and the rollercoaster just continues. With the embro updates things can change so much as well - we thought it was game over the day before we got our blast that we later found out was PGD normal.

    AFM. I don't really have many symptoms at all - I'd love to have a few more so that it feels more real. I've had a tiny bit of cramping and my bras are tight. That's it. My FS's nurse has said all the numbers look great - second BT, HCG doubled in just over 40 hours and now I need to wait for the scan. I'm too worried to enjoy being pregnant as yet. Nurse was so lovely and she spent quite a long time reassuring me. She said that most of us ladies really struggle between last BT and scan and I know next Thursday I'll be a wreck. I only had 1-2 hours sleep the night before the second BT (and only got any sleep after doing an extra HPT), so goodness knows how I'll be before the scan.

    Virginia Trioli from ABC breakfast got pregnant naturally in her late forties, think she was 47. First child too.

Wonder if she has PCOS to release so many eggs
    It is amazing!!!

    Apparently the oldest verified mother to conceive naturally (listed currently in the Guiness records) is Dawn Brooke from the UK who conceived a son at the age of 59 while taking estrogen!!!

    I do think the Quin's mum had PCOS for some reason???

    Thanks for tracking that down @BIB. Great result, but sounds like it was pretty traumatic getting there. Just imagine having your OB tell you he expected you to miscarry just based on age. I hope things are going well for them now.

    That's great that your HCG is doubling as it should Luv!!! Yay!!!!

    It's really, really difficult not to let your anxiety get the better of you. I know, I was a nervous wreck right up to and including the viability scan @ 7 weeks. I was that sick with nerves on the day that I felt ill!!! I was also on the edge of having an anxiety attack while I was waiting in Wazza's rooms for my appointment with him. I was absolutely petrified of what I might (or might not) see.

    The only thing you can do is try to find ways to calm yourself whether that be downloading some meditation tracks or something like that you can listen to which might help calm you, going and having a pedicure etc done, a nice warm bath, some safe herbal teas you could drink. I went and had regular massages done including the night before my viability scan.

    Do whatever it is you have to do to get you through this time ok?? It's completely natural to worry and the worry is more intense for us ART ladies than it is for most women who naturally conceive. We know far too much and many of you Lovelies have been through far too much before getting your BFFP take home babies which changes things. We don't have that blind trust and faith and dare I say it, naivety that a lot of women have that all will be well once we're pregnant and we can just kick back and enjoy the ride etc, etc.

    Insomnia is also pretty common in the early days too Luv. I had it bad!! The worry doesn't help, of course, but some of it could be early preggo symptoms too. I had barely any early symptoms apart from XXX rated porno dreams, "Lavvy Lurking" 3 or more times a night, insomnia and when I was a little further along, waking up in the middle of the night starving!!!

    Yeah @Gagingi Ive been there too and was also a wreck leading up the scan. I think its just how its going to be for any of us as we do know too much. Totally understandable. BUT you have a normal embie in you so thats totally awesome and must mean the risk of anything happening is massively slim. Blondes advice is good, doing anything you can to help keep your nerves at bay is the only thing you really can do. I always have the insomnia too in the early days plus the raunchy dreams which after a while turned into really bizarre dreams. We'll all be cheering you on when it comes to next friday for your scan.

    I reckon all will go swimmingly and bubs will be here waking you up at nights in no time!

    BIB, what about if I found a donor who was 35? Would I still be in with a chance do you think?

    I think so if maybe her AMH was good but I think some of the other Lovelies who are going down/have gone down the donor path can advise you more appropriately about that.

    If you had a choice I'd tell you to go with eggs 10 yrs younger just to stack the decks a bit more in your favour but younger eggs aren't always great either. I guess you won't really get that choice doing known donor here in Aus... a lot will be older because of the rules & regulations around it.

    I think @Bongleys donor was older???😐
