@Charlie74 yes thats what Ive learnt. My friends husband has a gene for muscular dystrophy that they specifically went into IVF to eliminate, as their first born son had this. They had no idea the husband had this gene till both were tested after their son's diagnosis. Their IVF journey didn't end with success. It was very hard to 'discard' the embryos that had this gene, knowing how amazing their son was. Huge ethical and personal position to be in. Huge..
We have indoor cats. We have 2. They dont mind now not going outside.
Love the cat @winsor. I like your idea for a name change. Pudding is not a fit name for as dignified a creature as a cat.
My cat acts like a dog too. Phantom is 10kgs and my vet said that big cats are often more like dogs. He follows you around, wants to eat what you eat and even sits of the verandah and waits for you to come home. I love dogs and cats but our yard is too small for a dog.
Infertility seems to be so common now. I have several friends who are struggling to conceive. 2 have 1 child and have all but given up on having a second. They are both younger than me. Another friend has been TTC her first for 5 years. She just turned 40. Bloody heartbreaking stuff.
@40NotOut is there an alternative that you can take if you decide to do further cycles? I remember MCGBertie saying menopur was made from the urine of nuns. I would be happier with that than killing hamsters! This world is damn cruel IMO!
Hi everyone - I'm in Santorini now , mini holiday before we head to Athens to prep up my body for DE transfer . I head to lakentro next Tuesday to check out my lining . I cannot believe I'm in Greece 6 months after being told this was an option ! & my husband thought my plan of a holiday was very cunning , but he's very relaxed & happy which is a good thing
I have to say I feel fabulous even after taking a concoction of meds . Shall keep you updated on progress .
I have thrush! It's not something I regularly suffer from so I'm blaming Menopur. Did menopur give anyone else the itches? bloody nuns!
@Lucky8 Im so jealous!! How amazing is Santorini! It is absolutely a great idea to have an overseas holiday plus a baby Enjoy the warmth and amazing views, not to mention the greek food..yum!
and GOOD LUCK!
@Bradders how exciting for Monday! good luck, this IS the lucky one! Happy shopping too..that worked out well
@40NotOut thats interesting about the hamsters, I guess the reality is that mice and rats are used all the time in scientific research so its maybe not surprising that it goes further than that. Its awful to think about, like many things in this world, if we knew some home truths we would quite possibly make different choices. Its a hard issue, you want to be kind and protect animals from harm but you also want/need to benefit from drugs and where do you draw the line. No wonder the majority of people out there would rather bury their heads in the sand when it comes to stuff like this!!
I guess menopur would be an alternative since its derived from post menopausal women?
Have a great day everyone - thank gawd its the end of the bl00dy election!!
Oooh....getting close now Luv!!! How exciting for you both!!!
