tuxcat and just remind yourself how stoked we'd be if we got even 5 eggs. These are young golden eggs so will be perfect blastocysts.
Oh how good is that movie. I loved it. Great distraction for you.
lastchance I took 1 Valium an hour before, brandy just after transfer, another Valium 2 hours after transfer and another that night. I was told by Wazza it had to be brandy and it felt different to other alcohol that I'd tried at earlier transfers. The brandy/Valium combo really relaxes you. Best sleep ever. Good luck.
We're still ok here. Spent the afternoon pinning down everything outside so it doesn't blow away after I saw a warning about 110km per hour wind coming our way. So far there has been some wind but nothing remarkable, and some light showers. Just waiting to see now if a larger storm develops or not....
I have packed all our bags as if we are heading to the airport. The cat's have their stuff packed too, so if by chance the SES rock up to evacuate we are ready to go. It's just a matter of waiting it out now. Those poor people in Adelaide, they really copped it.
Tomorrow is my CD9 lining scan! There's some exciting news! The hospital is just over my back fence so I can swim there if need be! My bleeding has stopped thanks to a little extra Progynova too
Apologies for the quick post. Am thinking of you all in between thinking about the impending storm and IVF cycle, lol
Lolly99 hi :-) i imagine you do have your hands and everything else busy busy haha. I honestly cant imagine double the trouble but double the love, i was just going to mention, even though the synarel is still in date, if its been opened for longer than 30 days (or something like that) its no good anymore, i was gonna use an old one once but my nurse said i had to buy another one if id opened it for the previous cycle. :-)
@Tahli im glad things are looking promising xox Ive somehow missed part of your story of how you ended up with embies from 2 donors. Can you fill me in if you want to simply because im nosey and curious? And no hard feelings whatsoever if youd rather not :-)
@tuxcat im hoping your quartet of embies are doing their thang mate, i reckon 4 good embies at this stage is enough to get a day 5 transfer, i guess we're looking for just 1 or 2 golden ones. Im starting to think the whole idea of lots of frosties from 1 cycle is a bit of a myth, and less realistic. Maybe if you're doing ivf coz dp had a vasectomy and there's no real male or female fertility probs or just coz you need to screen for cystic fibrosis or something, maybe these are the peeps getting lots if frosties, iykwim? I reckon, from what ive seen from bubhub ladies, it seems rare that anyone gets more than maybe 1 or 2 frosties and thats if they're lucky, even with donor eggs and i also think there is such a thing as having too many frosties. So anyway, i was just thinking of you and trying to think of positive things. Ive never heard of anyone having all the eggs collected fertilise and make it to day 5. I think ivf is a selection process and its supposed to be that not all of them make it, and honestly, who wants 10 golden embies anyway, youd be preggers non stop for 10 years if you used them all- and thats cray-cray!
Afm... epu went well and dh sample was all good, so everything has gone as well as can be expected for the stage we are at. I feel blessed and very zen about it all.
Hi to everyone else, i have read all your personal messages and mentions and it really warms my heart to have been so accepted and welcomed and supported. Its lovely to know you're there for me for the good times and if things dont go well in the future, much love xox
