fionaalice - hope all went perfectly with the transfer yesterday afternoon. I know exactly what you mean re mixture of excitement and anxiety. Have everything for you
trying - hope something is busy cookin' up inside And only a few days to go now til you start Synarel. Hope the mental readjustment is happening for you. It's a big aboutface to have to totally change track mid-way through
thanks a million to you both and milliegirl for your good thoughts and lovely words. News as at this morning is that there are two Grade 1 embies at 12 cells each, one Grade 2 at 10 cells and two Grade 2s at 6 cells. Obviously those last two aren't going to make it and hopes pinned now on the two 12-cellers. Of course they really like to see a morula by day 4 so they're not quite there which is a little disheartening, but they are Grade 1 and the embryologist said they are still very nice embies and that they might pick up speed again with their development between now and transfer, which is at 9am tomorrow. So we might still end up with a 5-day blastie to transfer, but if not then hopefully at least a morula. She also confirmed that there appears to be no problem at all with egg quality, which is a big relief - was such an unknown going into this process. So I reckon things are pretty good and with any luck we might even have one to freeze
Will check back in post-transfer tomorrow. Thanks again for all the support. It makes a huge difference

Starfish - sometimes the universe does feel like it's against you . Sorry to hear about your work colleague announcing her news. Just think about the day when you too will be able to make that announcement and shout from the roof tops that you are PG. That day will come honey.

Just a very quick me post. We had an expanded cleaving blastie transferred this morning - apparently this means it's about to hatch out. So one of our 12-cellers came a long way in 24 hours. Sooooo happy, thankful and relieved that we had a great one to transfer - nearly burst into tears on my back when the embryologist told us. None of the others continued to develop after yesterday, so none to freeze, but I wasn't really expecting to and in some ways I would prefer to spend the $$ it would have cost on another fresh cycle if this one doesn't work.
So now it's the good ol' waiting game and psychological tussle between Dr Jekyll (excitement about the potential of being PUPO) and Mr Hyde (keeping expectations low to minimise the height from which to fall if it's BFN). But, it turns out, the waiting won't be for too long. They will first look for HCG on Thurs 10 Feb and then the pregnancy BT is next Saturday, which is 12dp EPU. Surprised it's so short - but obviously happy the agony will be relatively short-lived.
Thanks to all you gorgeous girls for your words of encouragement (it means the world ) and oodles of to everyone and especially to those of you also in the middle of a cycle - fionaalice, tryingfortwo and spot (forgive me if I have forgotten anyone)

Oh Slinky that sounds fantastic, may embie snuggle in for the long haul.
Melk I am day 3 today so have paid for my FET and am just awaiting my scripts. Feeling all cool, calm and cucumber like right now
Was a bit miffed though when MIVF told me that for the transfer they are now categorised as a 'day procedure' ... WTF!!! 10 minutes on a seat with your clacker and a doctor!!!!!!! So they are charging $380 for the privelege of that seat.
Well if that is the case I want that seat for the whole day for a snooze, a cup of tea and some raisin toast like I do after an EPU. Thankfully PHI will pay for it but not really the point.

Slinky, that blastie sounds like the loveliest emby - go cleaving blastie, hatch out and snuggle into Mummy! Hope you are able to relax over the next few days. Take care.

Slinki – Congrats on a lovely embie to transfer – fantastic news, wishing you a smooth TWW! Glad your cycle went well – great news about good egg quality!
Tryingfortwo- what a rollercoaster for you my dear – how frustrating! Glad DH could make it and you could do an IUI. Sounds like you have a good plan for next cycle too (if u need it!) that you don't.
Fiona – hope all went well with transfer. Thinking of you
Starfish – hope you are well. Its about time the universe threw the good news in your direction- NOW please!!! Glad you have a good plan with your next cycle. Its good Dr S is confident that you will have a baby – they don’t say these things lightly. Its true
DrMummy So happy to hear all well with T1 – wonderful news. It must have been hard to see T2 . Hope you are going along OK with preggie symptoms.
Melk – hope all going along well for you!
Spot – good luck for your cycle – I agree for the price they charge for transfer they should include a few “extras”!
Always Hoping – hope you are going well and you and DH are enjoying your time as a couple before your little one arrives. Thinking of you!
Hi to everyone else too
AFM – have been MIA – keeping busy with non-IVF stuff which is always nice – possibly selling our unit and buying a house – and DD started pre-school – very emotional day for mummy!
