Blossom74 my fs never got me to take prednisolone until after transfer, if that helps :-)
Wow @Sue77 I'm so sorry to hear of the loss of your babies, it's devastating especially when there is so much hope there with PGD normal and a surrogate. It sounds a bit like you need some time to grieve before you are ready to move on to donor eggs if that's what you decide.
Time is what I would say helped me get there, we were told to consider them after a good lot of IVF cycles that weren't yielding many eggs and my age basically. So at first it was totally devastating, it came out of the blue to me and I left walking through a crowded hospital clinic full of pregnant women in tears, I was so shocked and desperate, I really was. I wasn't ready. So I felt like we needed to keep trying and so we did, and again at the next clinic appointment, it was raised again. By that stage I still wasn't ready but it wasn't as shocking but then after more failed cycles and being pretty exposed to others doing donor eggs in here, I started processing it all. And then we got to Xmas last year and decided we wanted to give it a go. So here we are a week into our first de cycle! Now I'm totally comfortable with it and am excited as it's the only way we will get to have a family so I'm embracing it. I guess there are moments where I think about not passing any of my DNA onto our child but they are fleeting and not often at all actually. I'm just ready to have a baby. All of these things just take time, and being in this group has definitely been a major factor with feeling good about moving on as I have seen lots of others who were already there with it and finally getting their take home babies.
hope that helps xxx
@Sue77 im more than happy to share how i transitioned from oe to de. I will post in about half hour. Its gonna be a long one (sorry to everyone who's heard it before...but maybe it will help anyone who stumbles across this page one day. Be back soon xox
I had a bit of a crappy morning, with some tummy cramps. But on the plus side they are gone now and my fever has gone too. I think I must be fighting it off. TBH I'm not sure if I should mention it or not. My FS is away for the next week and I don't think it's something I want to discuss with the coordinator. Will come down to gut instinct I think.
Grace1, not much explanation.
She was actually happy that we had one embryo making it to perfect blast while I was scratching my head about fertilization rate...
I m doing antagonist Menopur/ Cetrotide.
When are u starting stimming? Do you have a new protocol? X
It does! And yes, that's what my last FS prescribed too. Which is why I kind of want to take my course of AB's once AF arrives tomorrow or the day after (don't want to delay her arrival!) and then start the Pred once I'm done with them. I would still be starting the Pred at least a week prior to EPU...
