    The universe is FRUCKED!

    My two cents for what is worth re transferring in day 3 or day 5, my FS is dead against day 3 transfers, calls it bullsh1t science.
    With my first DE cycle I had 2 embryos on day 3 then none on day 4. (Xmas day I'm sure some of you will remember) I actually regret not transferring on day 3. Sensible me knows that it still would of been a bfn, but clutching at straws me says "well you'll never know now will you"
    I know it wouldn't of hurt any less but at least IVF wouldn't of ruined Xmas!

    The sausage rolls sound divine too!!!!! I looooove me a good sausage roll!!!

    I'm sure you'll make a frucking excellent impression with that lot Luv!!!

    Eat your heart out Margaret Fulton!!!

    Margaret Fulton lol
    Go girl! go get em' tiger Sounds pretty darn impressive to me! I think the meet ups help as the donors apparently talk a lot in their private FB group so putting some faces / personalities to names is helpful for them and just being able to chat about IVF and all this is refreshing when they totally get it. Have fun

    Oh FRUCK IT! Look it could be too early still hon, there is time to turn it around.


    But..considering how crappy everyone's day has been on here today, as Captain of The Stick Whores I am going to take the unprecedented step of declaring a stick amnesty for the day.

    Everyone, STEP AWAY FROM YOUR STICKS!

    Try again tomorrow by all means, but today is clearly a Bad News Day. Let's not tempt things further, shall we?

    Hugs to all

    Thank you so much beautiful ladies. I got blown away by the number of your answers and how fast they arrived on a Saturday!
    I really think we should all get a life!! Ahah kidding.

    Yeah this is me kidding. Enough crying and feeling sorry for myself today. I managed to calm down and think rationally.

    I made my decision and we're sticking to Day5, as we said we would.
    We're both realist ppl and believe in science, so we both understand and agree on the Day5 embie theory.
    I just had a massive breakdown because letting go of a transfer after a harsh 5th fresh cycle is mentally really hard. But that's what is: mental.

    I'd rather save myself from a -ohh how taxing! - TWW which would be pure torture for nothing if our embie doesn't make it till Day5. Now why would I do this to myself on the top of everything else? (@tuxcat spot on!)

    There's no extra cost for a transfer from our Clinic so I couldn't even use that in my decision!
    I know that our chances are tiny and I'm bracing myself for no transfer. Damn! This cycle was looking good...

    I want to be a swamp wallaby.

    This will be my first time trying @Tahli's frozen Mint Slices so will report back with my verdict later on!!!😁

    I don't usually buy choccy bikkies either...just head straight for the blocks of the stuff instead!!!!😁😁😁

    @Heyside I'm so sorry to hear your news today. I was so hoping this was going to be your bfp.
    @LillyM I know exactly how horrible it is to get that call, as you know this was me on Wednesday!!! it's such a shock isn't it when results are much worse than previous cycles....this is also my first cycle with only one fertilizing and as you know I transferred at day 3, (my clinic suggest day 3 with few embryos). I agree with others who said to go with the path of least regret and I admire your strength going to day 5 and it makes sense scientifically...(I just don't have the guts to do it so here I am in the 2W torture)....., Do you get daily updates from your clinic? What does your Fs usually recommend day 3 or day 5?
