    @Green lady - Really hoping that back pain is a good sign hun and its bub snuggling in. Definately use more progesterone it can't do any harm at all. Sorry to let everyone else know in here but I am like you and won't POAS until the day before BT I have done it early in the past and it either sends my mind into overdrive or I have had a couple of cases of false negatives where I have ended up with a bfp at bt (unfortunately they didn't progress).
    @ faithandhopellove - Oh thanks for the acceptance as a 'Warrior Woman' I love that phrase and definitely feel like one. I live the fact your MIL has declared IVF now ok if it will give her grandkids. I have visions of you running around the house madly before there visit for her to announce that. We have very close friends who are very religious and probably wouldn't agree with our IVF journey they don't know about it at the moment but if they ever found out I know they probably wouldn't keep their opinions to there selves and it might even mean the end of our friendship.
    @Charlie74 - Great to hear you are feeling a little better and the cloud is lifting, do anything you need to protect yourself and survive.
    As for the info of the PGD stats they seem very high odds I should take that as a positive for my next transfer but it just makes me feel sad that my last tested embie didn't make it. It makes sense that maybe they still don't have the energy my embies might fall into that category 😳.

    @greenlady have all fingers & toes crossed for you...

    Re the PGD stats. I was told by LB last year that the stats are 60% for a PGD normal embie.. She said it puts u in the same category as a younger woman doing IVF. Not sure I believe that though? Seems like there's an awful lot of PGD normal embies in us over 40's that go nowhere don't u think? I'm inclined to agree with whoever commented that yes they might be 'normal' chromosomally.. But maybe they still just don't have the energy needed to survive? Or does the fact that they are normal mean they have already passed the milestones requiring energy? (Not sure that makes sense the way I've written it.. Sorry ladies! lol)
    I reckon a PGD normal emby from a 40yr old is probably not as promising as one from a 25yr old. But what do I know??

    Speaking of which my mate tested last night at 3AM and got a BFN she'd been crying the whole time by the time she texted me at 6. That was her only PGD normal in 6 cycles. I'd forgotten she does have one untested embryo left, so she's transferring that soon but she's been through so much heartache, its so unfair.

    I have three cousins and two friends (in their 40s) who are childless not by choice. It's so f*cking unfair!

    @greenlady fingers crossed for a BFP for you!

    Hello all the other lovely ladies. Thought I would pop back in to update that I am hopefully having my final OE FET next Friday. Following the last BFN with my TET I thought I would just jump straight in and transfer my little Lone Ranger asap so I can move on. It turns out my 3bb is actually a 4bb so that was some good news for once! I'm not holding out much hope as this will be transfer no. 7 and the 14th embryo but may be its lucky last! It was frozen nearly a year ago and the only blast as all other transfers were done on day 3 and the TET on day 4, so not sure if any of them would have made blasts.
    However, my Plan b is also underway and I have been researching DE and I'm all set to head to Athens in Sep if this fails. I'm focusing on that instead of pinning all my hopes on this last throw of the dice!

    It is unfair. I'm very sorry for your friend

    PGD is a funny thing. Even a PGD tested embryo is no guarantee of success. I think a lot of it just comes down to plain old luck TBH.

    Mum had my sister at 45 naturally. The odds of that happening are just so small. But you never know.

    There are plenty of egg recipients who have put in embies from donated eggs and had them fail. Even from young donors. Again, sadly I just think it comes down to luck if it will work or not. There is only so much we can control...

    ETA: What happens if people try to get pregnant with PGD abnormal embies? I don't want this to sound bad so please excuse my clumsy wording, but are the embies which 'fail' the PGD test inconsistent with a viable pregnancy? Or do they only indicate a potential genetic abnormality - for example, something like Downs Syndrome, where the embryo could indeed result in a live birth?

    Good luck hon. Fingers crossed you don't need to head overseas

    Nice to have a backup plan though

    Oh no Luv!!! Your poor friend!! That's frucking so sad and so frucking unfair!!!


    I reckon you're right about the age difference r.e the PGD embryo's. Perhaps in some cases the embryo's just don't have enough energy to keep on going???
    Granted, that could happen to any embryo no matter what age the egg from which it was conceived, but we know that mitochondria/mitochondrial DNA is affected in older eggs so maybe that has something to do with it too???

    Anyhoo... and prayers being sent for the frostie in the freezer for your friendxoxox
