    @MaybeBabyIVF @hopefull29 @Mona424 I'm new to this whole blogging/forum thing, is there a specific group you could invite me to or "tag me" as people go through similar things?

    I'm only sharing what I was told. Others might have heard similar things or other things, it's all worth sharing.

    Good luck with your journey.
    I'm sorry! I didn't mean to discount what your FS told you. I just thought it was an odd percentage. Truly - I didn't mean any offence.

    Sure! Mostly I just wait until things pop up in the feed and that's where I tend to notice things. If I see something I'll tag you for sure!

    I'm also going through Genea in the ACT. My doctor and all the other doctors were so happy with the embryo count and quality and I guess I've got to remember that and also that it can take more than 1 attempt.

    A friend has told me they can give you drugs to help transfer too. I don't care how it happens anymore as long as I get my baby.

    I'll wait to see what happens on Tuesday and go from there. Will call my doctor if needed for some more advice and I'm booked in to speak to the psychologist too. I need management techniques.

    All the best next week!
    Thanks! This pregnancy hasn't been very kind to me unfortunately so I can't wait until next week!

    I went through Genea Canberra, my specialist is Dr Stephen Robson. All the specialists there are fantastic

    Oh and Ps... FET means frozen embryo transfer. There are quite a few abbreviations but ask anytime and someone will be able to help xo

    Good luck for Tuesday, if you feel up to it I hope you can let us know. We are here for support too xo

    Oh Hun I would but I'm not apart of a due in group anymore. I had my bfp back in March and unfortunately our baby girl was born sleeping a month ago tomorrow (still waiting for answers).

    @sickoftrying sorry it takes a bit to get used to all the lingo. FET=frozen embryo transfer.

    I don't think @lileitak meant it to sound nasty. It's a very accurate percentage though, my FS told me 75-85% chance but at the end of the day I don't think the figures really matter that much because as lileitak said it either works or it doesn't. Each FS has their way of working it all out. I hope this cycle you fall into that 62%.

    As far as groups, there's IVF cycle groups. I'm not sure how to send a link though sorry.
    @MaybeBabyIVF so sorry to hear that Hun. I hope you get some answers soon xxx

    @hopefull29 no maybe @lileitak didn't meant to. I guess when you're an emotional mess you can take things a little sensitively.

    That's a fantastic percentage @hopefull29 I wonder how they do come up with these percentages. Main thing to remember is there is a much better chance than trying naturally! How ppl have mistakes (my best friend did) is simply amazing!!

    Pregnancy blood test tomorrow. Eek so nervous!! Keep us updated with your journey. Best wishes xx

    That's okay @lileitak. I'm sure it's just because I'm so new to this and emotional and nervous.

    I only just saw your reply. I really don't know how to reply to these properly. Sometimes j I get email notifications, other times I don't?!

    All my "replies" even when I click submit reply, they come up as a new thread rather than a direct reply?

    @sickoftrying these hormones can really mess with us.
    I honestly have no idea how they work out the figures, I know it goes by age, health ect though. Even with those figures I wasn't lucky with my first transfer that's what I meant by it either works or it doesn't. Once that embryo is in there's nothing else your FS or you can do. Just hope for the best.
    Good luck for tomorrow's BT! Keep us posted. You've done well to not poas!!
