    @Billie2 i know, i know, ive been very upbeat lately but only becayse the whole donor egg thing meant that ive had the last 2 months 'on holidays' from ivf. I hated what it did to me too. I can say though, in my experiemce that you can bounce back and the 'original' you is still in there and she will come back one day. You wait mate, when it gets closer to my DE cycle, I'll be freaking out and posting all my worries. You'll be writing to me, saying, "its ok to be worried". After my last OE failed cycle and the pet chicken massacre, i honestly thought that i had been irreversibly broken and damaged and that i would never smile again. I stopped talking, telling stories, joking, laughing, socialising, enjoying sunny days, stopped gardening, basically everything that brought me joy, ceased to do so. But it just takes time. Sometimes you cant see how you'll ever come good again or when that will be which is so exhausting and depressing. BUT it will happen if you just hang in there xox

    You're not being painful Luv so don't apologise ok?? We're all here to help you

    Now..to answer your earlier question: On Cycle 4 my FSH dose was 600IU and on Cycle 5 it was 300IU that was bumped up to 400IU for the last few days of the Cycle prior to EPU to get my follicles up to where Wazza wanted them to be before he gave me the ok to Trigger (which I used Pregnyl on both Cycles to Trigger with).

    Speaking of Pregnyl...I used Pregnyl booster shots on Days 3, 6 and 9 after embryo transfer on both Cycles as well as Crinone, pessaries and Ralovera tablets and well as the other 150 supplements and drugs on Wazza's Pharmacy of Supplements and Drugs list so he does use Pregnyl both for Trigger and after transfer

    Oh...no frucking sh!t Sherlock!!!!!

    The risk of that happens to every embryo that thaws whether it's a Day 2, 3 or 5 embryo FFS's!!!!

    Good point Luv!!!...Totes agree

    Thanks Wazza's Girls. Wax apt booked. LB certainly didn't do one and it only crossed my mind very late in the day that Wazza might. There's nothing like a man seeing your vag within half an hour of meeting!! That wax will take care of next Thursday's surgery too. Two birds, one stone!!

They were angels. It took 3 of us to physically restrain him. I'm sporting two pretty painful bite marks. Mummy got a bandaid too. Another 2 weeks til the next lot of bloods. Boo.
    The local hospital (private) just happens to be the one I wanted to give birth in and the reason I took out PHI. Sure enough we passed a brand new bub and mum in the corridor. I had to bite back the tears. It was like a lightening bolt through my heart. I'll be using my PHI to have a hernia op there next Thursday instead.




    I think you should get stuck into those Mint Slices tonight Luvxo

    @Tinachris thanks for info about CF test. There's definately something wrong then. I'll get more proactive in case he needs to do another one. @Heyside sigh...im so sorry. I was sure youd have heaps of eggs. I feel that my previous post was insensitive now, so id like to genuinely apologise for being jovial when things weren't going ok. I should know that nothings guaranteed to be consistent with ivf. I dont know what else to say except all the usual, you never know, it just takes 1 etc..etc...blah blah blah... but i know thats not gonna help. I know how disappointing it is whenever your cycle is 'worse' than the last one at each particular stage. Big hugs xox
