@Grace1 Great news you have your one on board! It must be a strong one! I'm thinking Friday was a lucky day!
@Heyside and @gorgeousgeorge I also know how you feel about being left behind. I was part of a TTC thread and the people I started cycling with have had their babies. I was so sad of people coming through after me, starting, and moving onto pregnancy threads. I moved to a long term TTC thread, but it's pretty much me and one or two others that don't post much. I still visit the TTC thread occasionally, but it makes me mad and sad. Everyone that was on there when I started has been successful, and the couple that weren't don't post on the board anymore...
@LillyM sorry to hear this... I always thought like your husband, that the strongest get to day 5 and if they don't they wouldn't make a pregnancy. But now I feel that some eggs just don't like the fiddling around. I know now my eggs do not like freezing at all. I have heard stories of day embies recommended to be discarded making pregnancies, but that probably doesn't help. In the end go with what you feel... if it doesn't make it to day 5, will you regret not putting it in at day 3?
@Heyside sorry to hear of the 1 line... I'd like to say there's still hope until the blood test, but I know that won't help...
I looked up the 2 week wait list of what's going on, as I usually have day 5 and wanted to refresh myself on day 3. I read I can POAS from 6 days, which I thought wow, that's not too long. So I checked a calendar to see what day I was... I do not need a calendar because I'm only 1dp3dt... stoopid forgetful brain!
I am wildly swinging between some positivity like my first couple of cycles and the despair of the last ones... I can't make up my mind. It is going to be a long week. In the early morning I was dozing and had a picture in my mind of a toddler boy with chubby cheeks and short brown hair... I don't know who he was or why I was thinking about him. So then I got it in my head that it was like a little premonition... *Sighs*
I would like the orange pie recipe (I forget whose it was) I'd like to try it with lemons. I love lemon meringue but we hardly ever have it as it's too much faffing around...
@Charlie74 thank you so much for such a detailed reply. I found out early this year that I have a double dose of the MTHFR gene mutation so I am interested in trying the intralipids to see if I have better results before cycling again.
i am in Melbourne and in the Northern suburbs @midnite01 can you help with a Dr who would be able to set me up with intralipids?
i have previously been with LB so she might be able to help too, did you say @Charlie74 that she costs through the roof for intralipids in your previous post, it could possibly take a while too as I haven't seen her since last year. I have also been very sick this Winter with viral things so this sounds like it might help getting my immune system a kick?!
@Summer So sorry to hear about your loss, your story is a very complex one but o do think it's amazing that you are naturally getting pregnant. You mentioned in your previous post that you have MTHFR. I too have found out I have a double dose of this gene mutation but I don't know much about it. Did you try intralipids with your IVF cycles?
Yes another good question how often do you have it!
@pingc383 I can't remember, it was on a piece of paper somewhere from Dorevitch all I know is I have the double dose of the gene mutation from mum and dad although my homocysteine levels were normal but I do have a retest slip for that I must get around to doing.
