Thinking this all comes down to the change to menapur, I was willing to try it for a change of protocol though its just not worked. I know people say quality over quantity and I completely agree with that due to our chromosomally crappy embryos (Warren's words) but Warren also said its a false theory that less eggs often means better quality.

    Last cycle we only had 3 embies to test and started with 29 eggs with one normal so can't imagine getting much from this cycle ������.
    @Heyside - strangely I had almost the same number to test regardless of my starting number. Cycle 1 19 collected 1 to test, cycle 2 13 collected 2 to test, cycle 3 21 collected 2 to test, cycle 4 16 collected 2 to test. Every cycle I compared to my others and thought no hope but it's not purely mathematical. Your eggs can't be any more crappy chromosomally than my 43 year old ones, so you have every chance of getting two or three to test.

    Thats really interesting @greenlady that you still had the a similar amount to test in all those cycles. If we got 2 or 3 to test I would be so happy. Thanks hun you have made me feel a little better tonight.

    It would seem not. For years I've only worn one item of jewellery, a pair of small diamond stud earrings. I realised tonight that I lost one of them today. I'm guessing it was during the hurly burly of flying arms while attempting to draw DSs blood. I'll ring the clinics tomorrow to see if they came across it in the chairs. I know it's only a miniscule chance, plus the cleaners would have been in overnight. I feel sad about losing it though.

    A 63 year old Tasmanian woman and her 78 year old husband have just given birth to an (o/s) DE baby at 34 weeks here in Melbourne.

    Oh no Luv!!!

    someone's found it when you call this morning.

    How is DS today?? None worse the wear for his ordeal of having his blood drawn??

    I remember when they had to do DD's the first time (at the start of the year) and they didn't even use the bloody Emla cream prior to numb the area So frucking distressing having to hold her down and then they frucked it up so I had to take her back have it done a second time as they needed to repeat a couple of the tests (as the sample was heamolysed ). Thankfully that time they used the Emla cream to numb her arms prior and got the most competent Paed on duty to draw the sample.

    Anyhoo....you're due for the pendulum to start swinging the other way in your favour now I reckon

    Yep...and I know this view may not make me popular, but as far as I'm concerned, I think they've both made a really selfish choice in doing that. I feel sorry for the child and what he/she will be facing in the years ahead because of this.

    Sorry, but 63 and 78 is pushing the envelope too far IMO. Bloody disgraceful!!

    @BIB I tend to agree. My mum is 59, so she is still in with a chance then . (Besides the hysterectomy she had)!
