What a good cycle this time @Ivfnewbie! Hope you get your BFP from it!
@lotsathoughts, that must have been a hard text to read. I'm surprised your OB didn't call instead. How are you feeling about that? I imagine it's good to know the cause of your loss, and hopefully you get a few good PGS normal embies on testing. I had 50% of my Day 5 embies test normal.
Hope everyone else is well! I'm just counting down the days til I can start my next attempt at FET. Might call on Friday to see if my FS has decided what protocol to use.
@lotsathoughts thanks for the well wishes.
First cycle I got OHSS and I had an allergic reaction at egg retrieval whilst under anesthetic.
Got 11 eggs, only 2 fertilized and only got one that made it to day 5 and is now frozen.
Given my age decided we would try another cycle in the hope of getting more embryos.
@cookie good luck with your testing. We could end up cycling together.
@Flower78 I'm actually feeling good that we have a result. I think it would be hard to find out the baby was normal as I would feel worse that the baby is not with us still. I think we feel that hopefully through pgs testing we'll get a bit more "control" if you can call it that..? I'm hoping there aren't other issues with me and that it's just a numbers game of finding the right embryo. I actually feel thankful for this knowledge.
Fair enough @mish239 hopefully you get a better fertilisation rate this time. I've had two cycles be completely different before so there's definitely a chance this will be better. Menopur worked well for me as my Estrogen was really low. Hopefully they can find what's holding back the fertilisation. I went from one round getting 15 eggs...two making it to day 4...to 16 eggs...9 making it to day 5. Good luck. Xx
Anyone else here in SA? No power in the whole state! Repromed's generators better last till 12am!!
Not in Adelaide but saw it on the news. Hope you get power back soon!!!
Can I ask how people are with cycles and exercise. I need to lose weight but my FS says I shouldn't do any strenuous exercise and just walk. I know my body and walking doesn't make me lose much weight!!!
She is quite strict on a lot of things, like telling me not to dye my hair - hating the greys but can live with that but really want to start exercising to lose weight.
