tuxcat We did get it done but yeah, I think it was overkill! Think we were feeling a bit flushed with cash at the time as we'd just remortgaged our unit and had a chunky deposit sitting in our account. (feel skint as all hell now) I wouldn't do it the second time around but having said that its good for extra peace of mind.
@Maxwellsmum ah I'm so sorry, that is really tough and utterly annoying. Vent away. I see so many women struggling with donor eggs too. It breaks my heart when we climb that mountain of deciding to go the DE route, find a way of doing it, practically, emotionally and financially and then it STILL doesn't bloody work. None of my donors recips got it first shot and some are on 3rd try with double transfers. You aren't the only one, not much comfort I know.
@Lucky8 - Good luck for your transfer on Wednesday hun enjoy Greece as much as you can whilst there x
@Maxwellsmum - wazza said to me the studies he had read mentioned a lining of 6.5 really hoping you manage to get your lining there with a change in protocol hun. Sorry to hear you are feeling so down hun, it must be so hard to read that on the threads when you have been through it yourself without success. Vent away hun ivf is so unfair, you seem like a very strong lady to keep yourself going and not giving up yiu deserve your bfp you have worked so hsrd for it. Thinking of your DH too hun as it can be so hard on them too x
@Tinachris - Grow embies grow, do you feel excited for transfer tomorrow?
@Corbes - Congratulations on the arrival of beautiful Grace shes gorgeous. Enjoy your newborn cuddles x
I am awaiting af and its so frustrating as going off past cycles and coming off the provera it should have arrived yesterday and as of yet I haven't experienced any headaches like usual or spotting so it might be a while away! Maybe thats because its straight off a fresh cycle and higher progesterone meds who knows?
