Thanks gorgeous 35+ girls for your support and lovely messages!
Spot, I'm so sorry again for the loss of your furbaby I have thought of you often over the last couple of months and it's so wonderful to hear your FS has every confidence your bub will be safely delivered to you for this cycle!
Slinky, for EPU today and some lovely mature follies. Fate has a funny way of intervening sometimes and taking the decisions out of our hands. Look forward to your update
Pink, just because you're wonderful! Thanks so much for your support here and behind the scenes.
Trying, Mum4nay, Millie and everyone who has popped in recently.
Well, I am struggling to contain my excitement We had 4 blasts today when we arrived for transfer. 3 x A grades and 1 x B grade! All the time I have cycled with IVFA (my 2nd clinic) we have never had an A!!! Dr Illingworth was so warm and lovely. We are really glad we made the trip to Westmead to do the digital high magnification as DH's sample wasn't great, but they were able to pick out the absolute best (95% of the sample had vacuoles! ). He also went through all my previous transfers and pointed out this was the best blasty we had ever had, no fragmentation at all. So I am now PUPO with the best one and now I just that my lining is inviting enough for this little embie to make a home long term Will find tomorrow how many of the other 3 are suitable for freezing...but surely the 2 grade A's??
My sister has delivered us an absolutely amazing cache of embies and a gift which we can never repay ... as a small token we bought her a beautiful piece of jewellery and I did write her a card explaining if she ever needed a kidney I'm her woman!!
Thanks again ALL for your support, it has been 12 months since I 'knowingly' did a 2ww, not sure how I will go!

Starf1sh - (still stalking....) I have said a prayer for you and am sending you heaps and heaps of . Everything is looking A1. Now try to relax and talk to you little embie. I know it sounds weird but I talked to my little Z all the time during the 2ww and when I found out I was PG even more so. Maybe that's why she's such a chatterbox now
You are always in my thoughts and I know you and your DH will be holding your miracle. Your DS is going to be the world's best Aunty. She must be a truly wonderful person to give such a precious gift.....................to be a parent to a very wanted and awaited miracle.

hi beautiful ladies
starfish - YAY for you - and for your fantastic sister! A gorgeous grade A embie on board and hopefully a few more up your sleeve - not that you'll need them. Have absolutely everything crossed that that little one is the golden child . Best of luck surviving the TWW. You have so many of us here on the sidelines cheering you on
tryingfortwo - thank you for your gorgeous post. you write so eloquently - I'm thinking writing must be a core part of your work? You hit the nail on the head in every respect. This process takes a heavy toll. I am hoping that with every passing day you are starting to be able to imagine a life without the burden of that ache. Or at least that you are starting to breathe easier and believe that this pregnancy will bring you that much-desired little bub. Thank you for your lovely thoughts
spot - fantastic to hear from you and that you are in such a good headspace. What a boost, too, going into this next cycle that your FS has great faith all will be well. It is important to have a positive attitude (says she who struggles to find it during cycles - but hey, do as I say and not as I do!!!). Have everything crossed that this one is your time
thanks also to you, (spot), as well as millie, pinkB, swedeendie and starfish of course for your lovely thoughts. EPU today got a haul of 4 mature eggs - the 5th apparently fractured during pick-up, indicating it may have been too mature. 2 of the 4 matured over the several hours after they were collected, so a bit of a nervous time until hearing from the scientist late in the day that those 2 had come good, but good outcome for now. The sperm looked 'sharp' (good morphology etc) and all appeared to go OK with ICSI. So now the wait til fert results tomorrow. So far it's not that different from our last cycle, where we had 5 injected and ended up with 3 embies, all of which became blasts and 2 of which we used. Also had a BT today to check thyroid levels so those results will come in tomorrow. Will be doing acupuncture after ET this time around - what the heck, throw everything at it eh! So for some OK results tomorrow.

Starfish, I have been thinking of you all day, sending you the most positive of vibes - I whispered a little thank you prayer when I heard that the transfer went well and hope that as you receive this message you are relaxing at home with that lovely, perfect little embie snuggling in to become your beautiful, much longed for baby. Relax now and take care of yourself - and don't let the 2WW drive you crazy! Also sending positive vibes to your wonderful sister - what a generous, precious gift she has given to you, I hope she is recovering well from the epu.
Slinky, ahhh the waiting ... it never stops in this TTC game, does it? I hope that EPU went smoothly for you and that you are recovering well - I won't say that I hope you are relaxing, with 2 little ones at home that might be too much to ask ! You will be in my thoughts over the next few days - I hope you get great fertilisation and growing embies
AFM, a great day - I am 15 weeks tomorrow and today I had my regular checkup at the obs. Bubs was dancing around and showing off - even gave us a great profile shot of a beautiful little head and jaw. I just never really believed in my heart that FETs actually ever worked - but saw the proof there on the ultrasound screen today. It still feels like a miracle to me

tryingfortwo - wonderful news I can hear the lightness of tone in your post. Things looking good for you lovely
starfish - hope you're doing lots of relaxing while embie does lots of burrowing
AFM - a morning of great news. All 4 eggs fertilised normally so we have 4 embies Can't ask for better than that. And results from yesterday's thyroid BT show that TSH has come down to 2.5, from the 5.7 it was 2 weeks ago (after me hammering it with medication). Perfect levels are 0.5 - 2, so nearly in the zone. Feeling good so far ladies
