    @Lastchance75 as @Gagingi said... take Valium about 30-45mins before transfer... swig your Brandy when you come out... then Warren told me to take another one in the afternoon and then another one that night... it was quite blissful I also had never tried Brandy before and asked if I could drink something else... there were a few others that he mentioned... but nothing nice there is something in particular in the Brandy and the other ones he mentioned. Think of it has medicine you're not drinking it for the taste

    Does the hotel you're staying at have a chauffeur type service, thus is safer? The more relaxed your uterus is, the less likely you'll have contractions, the higher chance of success is the theory. But you may have already known that!

    Hi ladies…it’s been awhile. I have been ready all your updates on your journeys…so much going into all your cycles, very exciting and I’m sure that the once you get those BFFP!! All the disappointments and the tears will be worth the hard work you’ve all put in.

    My time has most recently been consumed with house renos, trying to ensure everything was finished so DP and I could move in the next few months and be ready to bring our darling little bundle home. And then busy with our families coming to visit…then I was sick with bronchitis which seemed to go on forever.

    AFM – my donor was back in Australia doing another cycle and we were all set to meet up which we were both looking forward to. Her so she could see how ‘round’ I’ve become and me coz I was so happy to show off what she’d helped us achieve. Then things took at rather different tack so we were unable to meet up.

    On Monday I went ot my GP to check out my cough that was still hanging around, just to be sure that my bronchitis was gone and wasn’t make another appearance…I’ve never had it before and it was ugly. Well turns out that the cough was fine but he was a little concerned about the swelling around my eyes. Then after checking my blood pressure which was high compared to anything he has on file, which was pre-pregnancy…which led him to a urine test that came up with protein and I think his alarm bells started…so phone call to Charlotte who insisted I get to the pregnancy assessment unit at the Mater Mothers. 5hrs later I was given the news that Charlotte wanted me admitted…but as my DP was in transit coming home from WA as his swing had finished they allowed me to go home and take the car so he had it for the next day…as well as get clothes etc.

    Tues I think we were still a little blissfully ignorant that we’d get more tests done and then they would stabilise my blood pressure and I’d be sent home and they would check me regularly. Well that night we were shattered when Charlotte’s first words to us were that I wouldn’t be leaving this luxurious Spa Retreat until our baby has been delivered. Followed by…’and I’m hoping I can keep baby snuggly inside for at least the next few days. These are words you don’t want to hear at 25+4…especially to then find out that best case scenario is we may get to 28wks.

    We are slowly getting our heads around it all and have been bombarded with information about what is the expectations and outcomes for the different gestation/weights that our baby could be born at. It’s pretty overwhelming but they have been very supportive and Charlotte has been great. She organised with the Neonatologist (premmie baby specialist) to come and speak to us which again was pretty confronting as they don’t hold back and are quite frank about the future may hold. They also want us to go and tour the NICU and they’ll show us little baby’s that are of the same gestation as we are…I’m a little worried that this will be the breaking point for both of us as we’ve been able to hold it together (pretty well…well ok in public anyway). But they are definitely about preparing you and ensuring you have all the information you need. Thank you to my lovely friend and support @MamaKes.

    Well I guess I’ve delivered you a novel…sorry, but I don’t think there will be too many over the next few weeks aa I need to try to settle in to this new routine and try to see if I can manage to work from here.

    Take care

    Oh my goodness gracious @Gen72. Massive hugs of support to both you and DH. What a shock. I can't even imagine what you're going through. It sounds like you're surrounded by an amazing team of caring and skilled professionals. Snuggle in sweet little bub for as long as you can, please. My words are inadequate but I'll keep you firmly in my thoughts, xxxxx.

    Take care

    Bloody Pre-eclampsia Luv!!!!

    Hopefully the meds and resting will mean you can keep the little on in there as long as possible Luv but if you can get to 28 weeks that will be a great result!!!!

    I know you're absolutely terrified right now but you're in the best possible hands and bub being born premmie these days from 26 wks onwards would be an almost 100% rate of survival I imagine not to say it wouldn't be without it's challenges (one of my Godchildren was born at 28 weeks) and a long hospital stay...but totally do-able Luv

    Your goal now is to take one day at a time knowing that every day you keep bub in there is another small victory you can claim!!!! Am keeping and sending prayers to the Universe you can stretch it out to 28 weeks...even 30 weeks Luv!!!!

    Will be thinking of you

    @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


    That's great to hear Luv!!!!


    and prayers being sent for a great fertilisation rate for you!!!!
