It has been a long time since I was on this thread as once my SA DE twins were born in Jan there seemed to be not enough time funnily enough ! I was recently explaining my TTC journey to a medical professional and I realised just how much we all go through and how important groups like this are. Without this thread in particular I doubt I would have gone down the DE path as it all seemed so hard and tbh, weird. BUT I got my confidence from people like Em and did 2 fresh DE cycles and 1 FET at CFC and voila - I never have to stick another hormone needle in my butt again ! I can't talk more highly of CFC and Dr PLeR - and I also needed a bit of help on the immune front so I had an Aussie Dr involved too (Dr G M) who is also a star in my book.
Good luck everyone cycling and those that are still struggling try to breathe out and look at the next step positively. I am a firm believer that the embryo that becomes your baby is the one that was meant to be. For me, as emotionally devastating as they are, the blighted ovums, early miscarriages and Chem Pregs are just trial runs.
Even though my bubs are here and I don't expect to be going back to SA (I am one of the ahem, older, ladies around here) I might hang around for a while and post occassionally if I have anything to add. Of course if anyone has questions, more than happy to answer. Hope that is OK.
