    When I've been pregnant previously it was all really different as it was in the UK. I had access to an Early Pregnancy Unit where you could walk in for scans. They were also 100% covered by the Medicare equivalent. You just took a number and waited your turn. For some-one like me with a history of repeated miscarriages those early scan were invaluable.
    I'm not used to the blood tests and I think they might be slightly more stress inducing because they're so precisely figures focussed. But maybe that's nothing compared to each scan waiting to see a heartbeat, bawling your eyes out with relief, then either watching it fade out with each scan, or get stronger then stop all together. Or better still, as with DS, keep going and going. I still lay my head on DS's chest and listen to his heartbeat. I never, EVER, take it for granted and he's 4 years old.
    This might help explain why I'm so scared.
    Very understandable. I still remember the time when you'd booked the hospital tour...

    I think we're all the same @Tahli. We want to see the hpt say positive, then we want to see the line darken. After that we want to see a decent hcg number and then we want to see it double. Then it's the scans and heartbeats and tests that are all good. We keep everything crossed for 12 weeks and 20 weeks and hope to get close to viability. It doesn't stop until you hold the baby in your arms. Then a whole new worry begins.

    Ladies....I'm finally PUPO!

    On board I have one beautiful 'textbook' blast

    And in more good news, there are presently THREE other 'textbook' blasts in the freezer.

    Apparently there are other embies they are still watching and there *may* be another to freeze tomorrow. They will ring me to confirm that by the end of the day tomorrow.

    So it's all good in the 'hood. I am relieved. My donor is a superstar. We are thrilled.

    Now...Is it to early to POAS

    Very true @faithandhopellove. One step at a time. There's nothing else I can do other than keep up with the intralipids every 10-12 days. Expensive flying up to Brissy but nothing compared to a new cycle. Not that I have any control over the outcome. I'd just feel less guilty if I lost the pregnancy but I've kept up with the intralipids.
    Oh my, yes, the hospital tour with my Nov chem. Good memory! They want me to book in for a tour next week. No flipping way. Not again. A few more hurdles to jump first!!
    @Rhino I hope you're enjoying your blazing hcg number!! No stress there!!!

    Wooo hooooo @Blossom74!! That's absolutely brilliant news. I'm completely and utterly thrilled for you and DH. Without Pregynl to test out I'm thinking waiting another 4 days might be the way to go. But hey, who am I to judge?!! Enjoy your PUPO-ness gorgeous!! Snuggle in precious little embryo, snuggle in.
    When do you fly home?

    When do you fly home?

    Flying home early Friday morning hon. We're gonna have a fairly quiet day tomorrow, a little shopping and lunch out and that's it.

    Monday I'll be ripping open the FRER

    @gorgeousgeorge - Yes it seems no tests can determine that everything is good there will always be things that can not yet be tested. Swapping the baby making ingredients until they work sounds like a good strategy.
    We basically had the same conversation with Warren at our last appointment. He didn't know why it wasn't working, he said it could be my eggs so we could do donor eggs, he said it could be DH sperm (due to our embryos slowing down day 4) or it basically could be the fact that together we basically make pretty 'crap' embryos. So we could also consider donor sperm or embies. We have discussed this in advance though and if it wasn't for DD we would consider it but we have to consider ourselves lucky. I still hate to hear her begging for a sibling though, when we told her she had a new cousin a while ago her reply was "I don't want a cousin I want a sister to live with us" - breaks my heart ������.
    Haha love your plan for a tribe of babies give it all you have got and see what happens!!!

    I hear ya @Heyside

    my DD also begs me for a brother or sister and can't understand why she can't have one! It is heartbreaking not only for them but for us as mums the chance to be a mother again and watch your children play together. I always thought I'd have a bunch of kids but have been left fighting infertility for an eternity. I know not all siblings get along and I know I fought with mine growing up and still do but as least it's not as lonely being a singleton like DD, at this age you always need to plan play dates so it's hard as soon as they are over they want another one she is in constant need of a companion.
