    yes, I've submitted the form & called about him this week. so I hope they don't give him away. not sure how long he's been there. there seemed to be 2 listings of him at different but nearby shelters so I think he might have moved between shelters.

She told me what the 'issue' was with both (which obviously was double Dutch to me!).. But mentioned chromosome 9 with one of them & the other I can't remember. PGD will obviously also pick up on things like trisomy 21 (downs) which will result in a live birth.


    Interesting. As you know we've never PGD'd before. But hubby was asking me what the test actually picks up.

    As an example, hubby has an inherited condition which affects his nerves and muscles, particularly in the arms and legs. It is genetically passed down through the family. Hubby is relatively 'normal' physically, but he does get leg cramps and numbness in his hands from time to time.

    He was curious as to whether this is the sort of thing PGD picks up, and if so would we then be recommended that our embies were not 'viable' if it was detected? The thought that this would be classed as 'abnormal' was distressing to hubby, who leads a full and active life.

    Again, it's a bit of a non-issue for us anyway, but we are just curious as to the answer...

    I've been trying to think of a name. perhaps Mister Parker. though I tend to call all cats and dogs 'good boy, pup, mister' so it might end up being 'good boy mister parker pup'. Parker for short (after parkers art store near where I do painting classes)
    I love mister Parker! Is that in reference to that book which I have forgotten the name of..a friend I had in Melbourne had a cat called Richard Parker. I haven't read the book nor seen the movie - life of Pi DH just reminded me.

    As as for a fat cat...our tux cat is fat. It's hard to avoid when the are purely inside, but she's happy and well loved and doesn't eat any more than a friends skinny cat but she's little so it's harder I think. I'm so excited for you! Pudding is funny. My friends rescue cat is called spud, and they kept it as it was just so cute

    I'll give the basic version,
    So when she had her bloods done by the clinic yes her levels were fine as it was post progesterone dose but then her levels would drop below acceptable levels. Her levels were basically having massive peaks and then massive drops. So when there where "drops" the levels weren't high enough to sustain an embryo.
    Now she is on supplements from the naturopath her levels are staying consistently above what is therapeutic.
    I'm not usually into alternative therapies but she showed me the data (and probably explained it much better) and I thought it was interesting and maybe valuable info for some of you.
    She may pop on this thread as well and may expand on my version.

    Ps- is there going to be some stick action tomorrow?????
    Mmmm...that's interesting Luv

    Progesterone levels do fluctuate naturally anyway throughout the day but hers must really swing the other way badly???

    Am glad to see she got it sorted out and I reckon you've got nothing to lose giving Alternative Therapies a go when you've tried everything else!!!

    Personally, I believe there's a place for them alongside traditional "Western Medicine"

    yeah I figure indoor cats prob get less exercise, and he's not a kitten any more, though still young. they said he sleeps a lot and doesn't beg to go outside or run out when they open the door so I think he must be an indoor cat. will see. will have to see whether I risk opening the balcony door with him (after he's settled in a bit). might need to get a screen door fitted. DP said he's going to call him Puddin'. it feels too much like fat-shaming a cat so I'm changing his name!

    yeah I thought of richard parker afterwards - that is a great book. and a friend mentioned Lady Penelope's chauffeur in Thunderbirds. I just liked the name of the art store. ha. and thought a 'p' name would match pup/pudding so hopefully sound similar to him.

    do you have a balcony and let her out onto it? does she try jump up onto the railing and over the balcony. there is a cement block running under the balcony the length of the facade, but I'd hate for him to jump off it & get lost or not be able to get back or worst. (like my sis' cat would have done if I let him out, cheeky boy)

    thanks for your suggestions about whippets too @Bongley. I ended up deciding the apartment is too small for a dog. maybe if we move to a house later. then I fell in love with this little man.

Although I plan to finish this cycle I can't see myself feeling ok to do another knowing animals have suffered for me to have the medication. Has anyone else felt this or had a similar situation?

    What do you mean "comes from hamsters" Luv???

    Yes, that does make me sad. I really don't like the thought of animal testing etc either but I know that so many advances in medicine and the like wouldn't have happened without it as well It's very upsetting to me Luv so can understand why it would be distressing to you

    Have added you to the Roll Call

    and prayers being sent this Cycle is the one that gets you over the line!!!

    @winsor we are in a house and ours is inside except for sometimes when we take her out on a long lead in the backyard and let her roam around without "walking" her as such - you can't walk a cat! They just sit and walk when they feel like it and occasionally she runs up the frangipani tree which is fine but we just control how far she goes. She doesn't try to run out but has escaped at times, but because she stays inside she's very cautious if she goes out. It took me quite a while to feel ok about the only inside thing as I grew up with cats who were in and out cats, but after our last girl was killed on the road we made the decision to keep her inside. You could do the lead thing and over time he would know the drill. They are very good with being indoors only, they sleep apparently 16-18 hours a day so they are perfect indoors pets anyway. It also means they don't get fleas, into fights and kill wild life so I think it's a good arrangement.

    Thanks everyone for the warm welcome back. Also thanks BIB for adding me to the roll call. I've had a slight change of plan and as my bloods showed I already ovulated my FET is now Monday morning I was just about the head to the airport when I got the call so I have decided to stay in Brissy for the weekend! Caused some drama for me as I came without my meds and more clothes but luckily got the scripts faxed to a local chemist here so I'm all set. Now I just need to buy some clothes and undies!
