Forgot to say to ivfhopeful! I think the low AMH UTD poster girls have spoken beautifully on that count! Don't be discouraged! Big for your recent MC, unfortunately have been in that place many times myself. Just curious why you are doing an OI this time round?

Hey Everyone. Thank you so much for the comforting words about the AMH results. The doctor said my FSH is excellent so pg this means I will still have good quality eggs left. I do understand that I am older but its hard to hear in real terms. Oh I have never prayed so hard. People think oh you have one why are you so desperate for number two...but number two is for number one! I so desperately want her to have a sibling.
Starfish- Thanks so much for the welcome. My fs said that since I had recently been pregnant he thinks it is unnecessary to go straight back to ivf as he thinks that just getting the eggs will be all it will take. oh I pray he is right. We will only do 3 OI cycles before going back to IVF. I so hope that I do not have to go back there as it is so hard to do with my job as I am a teacher and I can not just take an hour off here and there.
Mum4Nay- thanks too for the warm welcome. I too have just sold our house and bought a new one. Our settlement date is the 11th of November so we had a 6 week settlement date in total. We were taken by surprise as our house was only on the market for two weeks. When is your settlement date?
I am looking forward to getting to know you all better as this cycle continues.
AFM- I triggered ovulation last night so busy for the next few nights. Good luck everyone and thanks again for the welcome xxx ivfhopeful xxx

IVFhopeful - Good luck with the OI!! It would be grand to avoid IVF... not sure how a teacher could possibly do it?? Amazing disappearing acts or excursions to a really interesting place - NOT!!
Congrats on buying and selling... it's stressful business isn't it!! We settle on 3rd Nov. We sold our place in 3 weeks and it's currently under contract - BUT, they did a shocking P + B report that was a disaster so we STRESS that they might pull out or renegotiate!? Yikes!

Ivfhopeful – welcome! So sorry to hear about your recent miscarriage. AMH is depressing but its not everything. Looks like you have been able to get some frosties when cycling and get preggers naturally so thats all good. My AMH was 5.5 at 35 and then dropped to 2.7 just before i got pregnant in june at 37. I definitely think DHEA, coQ10 and royal jelly plus the IVF drugs all helped me. Don’t despair there are so many positive stories with low AMH.
Gardenia – so sorry to hear you have this added worry. What was your obst. Advice? Do you need to rest up and avoid lifting? Great to hear bubs is all well.
Millie – hope ur doing well, when is your next FET?
Mum4nay – great to hear you have bought and sold and will be all moved well before bubs. The kidney problem (hydronephrosis) is a soft marker for downs which has freaked us out. All other markers are ok though. Our obs doesn’t think we need one but has said if we need an amnio he will refer us – but honestly i don’t see the point this late in the pregnancy. Anyway its all very emotional as i am sure you understand!
T42 – hope ur doing well.
Slinky - hope ur doing ok
Starfish – sounds like things are getting close for you!!
Swede – thanks!
AFM – moving house over the next week but fortunately its not too rushed. Feeling emotional about issues with bubs but off to see fetal med expert next week for more info. Thinking of you all and looking forward to the next BFP’s!!!!

PinkB, Just wanted to say I'm thinking of you - I will never forget being told my DS had a problem (in his case, a hypospadias, easily fixed surgically). I hope your little one's issue is equally easily resolved. I think its a rule that everyone is terrified at least once during a pregnancy by a scan result, but the fact is that most times everything turns out just fine. You have so much on your plate right now! I hope that things calm down soon and that the next news you get about bubs is all good.

Pinky - Happy moving Re amnio's - I guess the crux for us was that we were prepared to abort if bubs was definitely downs or another terrible chromosonal abnormality and that's why we decided to do it... otherwise absolutely no point... but you're very late to be doing an amnio? Isn't there a cut off age for safety??

PinkB, I'm sorry you are having such a stressful time with awaiting further info from the specialist and now with the house move (I hope you have found somewhere lovely). It does sound very encouraging there are no other markers and I'm hoping your mind is laid to rest very soon
It seems like quite a few of our gorgeous 35+ mummas to be have been not been having a smooth and worry free ride at the moment, so sending you all more and plenty of to your growing bubbas.

I hope you don't mind me joining in - I've been stalking for a little while now, however was finding the right time to try and catch up where everyone is up too - and finally bitten the bullet as I don't think I have much of a chance catching up everyones history!!! so my apologies in advance
I see some familiar names (from the Sydney girls thread) hi to you al,l in particular Pink B and starfish ) to everyone else, look forward to chatting and providing support, share some highs and lows ( more highs than lows!!!).
AFM - a little bit of my IVF history - as you can see from my signature, both DH and I are 36. DH has low sperm, low motility and just recently I've found out/confirmed I have low AMH, hence am a low responder and been on DHEA for approx 3 months. This is our 5th stim cycle in a 12 month period, I have trigger tonight and EPU on Friday. I'm with WFC (Westmead) and have been advised today in a voicemail from the FC that my Eustrogen Levels are increaing nicely, however Progesterone is high, so they will not transfer this cycle and will need to freeze my eggs, so little worried now (as we usually get 4 eggs from EPU and 2/3 usually fertilise, however none make it to be frosties, so we transfer what we can - either 1 or 2) - mind you, my FS did suggest that she may trial (next cycle if this isn't sucessful) that she actually transfer a frozen embryo as she's been trialing this with a couple of her patients that haven't been sucessful with immediate transfers.
Thats about it from me, hope there is some good news stories for us over 35s group now and into the (not too distant) future and congrats to the new mums (yes, I've read some of th sucess stories on this thread) and hope all the UTD girls are doing well
to you all

Welcome Crofty! It is not quite as hectic over here as the Sydney thread, in part cos we have had such a booming success rate recently on this thread! But I'm still here and so are a few others hoping that our turn will come soon! I'm sorry to hear that your embies will be frozen and there is yet more waiting but hoping this is the one for you! Wishing you all the best for EPU today Let us know how you go!
