@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.
Wow you girls have been chatty today. I cheat and multi quote so I don't forget things so sorry for long posts in advance
AFM nothing really to report here. Waiting out the 2ww (cd 18) but it feels like AF is going to show early (backaches have started & the heaviness down there). Have to get some study in for my math exam as it's 2 weeks today eeek. Submitted my final assignment for my other subject this term. Been keeping myself busy today getting setup my study and work area now I'm working from home permanently. Meet my new bosses tomorrow which is gonna be hard as I was due to go on maternity leave 3-4 weeks after the business got sold (to help transition to the new owners). So just another hurdle and reminder to get through that Charlotte isn't here.
Hi all, hope you don't mind if I join?
So sorry for your losses
My history - I have PCOS (quite severely) and don't ovulate
Dec 2013 egg collection resulted in a freeze all (had 23 collected and 9 frozen)
Jan 2014 FET with progynova resulted in my DS who is turning 2 next week
Apr 2016 FET with progynova BFN
Jun 2016 stim cycle (37.5 Gonal) for FET cancelled around day 20 as follies were too small cycle not progressing
Aug 2016 letrozole 2.5mg on days 2-6 cancelled around day 20 lining was good but follies still too small
I have three more days of provera then wait for AF to arrive - trying letrozole again on days 2-6 but 10mg this time
Wish my body would just comply! 3 women in my mothers group have fallen pregnant naturally after IVF - just doesn't feel fair
Hopefully this will be our lucky month/s!!
mish239, I do pilates 2x week, bellydancing 1x, walk 1x and on the exercise bike 1x week.....all which help with weight loss but are also exercises that you can keep up once pregnant!! Gotta choose something you can keep up! 😉 I find that i put weight on when on treatment and then lose it again afterwards....can't fight the darn hormones 😢
