    God bless all the amazing DE's on this planet. What a gift.
    @midnite01 how did you go??
    No not dumb question mate. Ive read about clinics that do 'shared' cycles in the USA. I think they offer that option for people who want to do ivf but cant afford it, so they do the ivf and keep some eggs for their own transfers then give some of the eggs as a donor for other couples and they give you a big discount on the ivf, i.e. its like you get cheap ivf by selling some of your eggs. Dr.n warned me when i was checking overseas clinics, that if i was looking at clinics that were very cheap that you might be 'sharing eggs'. So i think they also have options where people share a donor. Although i dont know how that would work as in, how would they make sure it was fair for both parties?. Like if there ended up being an odd number of eggs how do they divide them up between 2 people? Do they just randomly divide up the eggs straight after epu? So, i think people only do it, if thats the only way they can afford ivf.

    Default IVF over 40#37

You seem to fall pregnant like a 21yr old, but staying pregnant is a huge hurdle. Sorry if you have already answered these questions before. I don't know how you poas to be honest. I stopped as soon as I had an obvious line. Its torture. Thinking of you xx
    Thanks @Billie2 - with each of my previous four natural pregnancies I had no support at all, but P4 levels were good & they miscarried for different reasons - mms, blighted ovum, sub chorionic haematoma & the last one disappeared / reabsorbed at six weeks.

    Following that I did Ivf with no success, but have lots of left over meds which I get into at the first sign of a line. My progesterone this time was 76 naturally which was really good.

    I used a 400mg pessary for support anyway & within 24 hours the line faded out on the pee sticks. That is six times now that I've had a pregnancy seem to start, but after using the pessary it fails within a day. I know it is likely coincidence & just ****ty old eggs, but I let this one go further & watched the line darken over six days & had the blood test to confirm before I started on progesterone & clexane.... & sure enough even with numbers perfectly on track for the start of a pregnancy, it was gone very quickly.

    I wonder if maybe it is something I'm allergic to or react to in the pessaries? Is that even possible? I know I'm clutching at straws but it just seems a little more than coincidence - you know how you notice these things about yourself that just seem off?

    Also while doing progesterone support with every medicated, triggered cycle, I didn't fall pregnant once in over a year of cycles, & now I'm off all meds I'm falling naturally. Makes me wonder if there is something in that particular pessary that inhibits my pregnancies, as I was on it for every single cycle from ovulation for that year...

    Anyway, I didn't think I had my hopes up too much, but I did & now I'm broken again. I know you know that feeling, hugs xxxx

    Question for you ladies...

    Not for me obviously, but out of curiosity what is an 'ideal' progesterone reading for early pregnancy?

    What number would you NOT want your progesterone to go below?

    Thanks

    Over 30 is considered good from my understanding.

    @Grace1, how are u going hun? Have u had your transfer yet? I don't think I've seen an update from u, sorry if I missed it?

    Afm- Epu went well this morning and I got 10 collected. The most I've ever had.
    However, based on last scan, I'm expecting 5x matures best case scenario, since the others were way behind size wise, but who knows...
    Billie's positivism is contagious...


    Thank you for the words of encouragement, so nice to read!

    Whoo-Hoo!!! Way to go Luv!!!!

    and prayers being sent for as many to be mature and to fertilise as possible!!!!
