So transfer Plan B wasnt needed. I cant believe I just wrote that. Ive never seen a blastocyst before. Im happy and healthy (despite my cold) and cant ask for more at this point.
    Fantastic news!! Congrats on being pupo, I know what you mean about the relief you feel just getting here, that's how I've always felt! Awesome you've got some frosties too

    congrats on being PUPO @Billie2!! great result

    I hope your kitties start eating more soon @Blossom74, and I hope your health improves too.

    how are you going @Bongley. I hope you're resting up & recovering well. I haven't used the app so am not sure about posting pics from it. can't wait to see Alex though when you get home & can post when you have a spare (!) moment

    good luck for thursday @Lolly99. very exciting!

I figure I can send 5 of my embryos overseas for a surrogate and keep trying with my 11 embryos here. Worst case scenario is I end up with three babies at once, right as in if I get BFP and a surrogate gets BFP (twins). What are your thought on this. Am I sounding slightly insane irrational. Do I need to execute some patience and at least give this the rest of the year

    Originally I was going to try 5 in me then if they all fail try 5 with a surrogate next year or in 2018. It's an insane amount of money but we have come too far to turn back now and like if I can get my paws on my super

    Hmmm. The first thing I would ask is "Would your FS allow you to do both surrogacy and your own FET's at the same time?" I *think* I read somewhere that most clinics like a 6 month break between your own cycles and surrogacy but then again, that may only be when you're doing local surrogacy. It's certainly worth looking into though, anything that gives you another opportunity is a good thing.

    With regard to accessing super, I'm not sure how much surrogacy costs but I believe that early release of super is limited to what is 'reasonable.' Who deems what to be reasonable is anyone's guess, lol. (God knows everything I've paid to date has been pretty bl00dy unreasonable )

    Another thing to consider....I did read recently that women tend to have lining issues after they have been exposed to persistent stims and medications. Forgive me for not remembering, but have you been on a lot of meds this year? I'm just wondering if potentially having a few months free of all medication and starting with a fresh slate might help? At the end of the day it doesn't matter if you carry your own baby or not - but if there is a chance that you could I wouldn't want you to miss out on it.

    I reckon....do a bit of research, and have a bit of a think before you decide which way to go. Big hugs to you hon, I know how long you've waited and suggesting you cool your jets is probably NOT want you want to hear At the end of the day you have to do what you are comfortable with.

    Lining issues after persistent stims and meds. Hmmm I was already starting off not so great and I can safely say the struggle has continued each cycle. I'm petrified I'm doing de and it will get cancelled because of my lining.

    Nonetheless Flights booked for Cape Town on 19/08 and I'm well into the kitchen sink protocol. Donors tests all came back fine and she's agreed to the schedule so it's all go.

    Pray for my lining ladies please xx
