Wow its super busy in here at the moment.
Sticky: When is your BT? I personally would save my money, implantation for a day 5 blast is the first 3-4 days after transfer, i think the acupuncture now will only serve to help with stress. All of the medical articles i have read state acupuncture is only proven to aid implantation 12 hours prior to ET and 12 hours post ET.
Lola: so sorry to hear the news hon, if it were me i would wait until Day 5 and see if they catch back up again and if so then Transfer both, if not i would use the last frosty next month. Like Sticky mentioned they grow in 6 hour intervals so hopefully they just checked them too early .
Traveler: Yay for starting , i always have those little milestones to look forward to as well – even though AF has started you are IN the cycle and it’s just a few short weeks until you start jabbing again. As soon as my AF starts i go slightly crazy thinking about all of the “What Ifs”.
Lindylou: Well your getting “knocked up” as i type this email, i have everything crossed honey that your golden egg is currently being put into its new home for the next 8 months . Were you doing 1 or 2 this time? Rest up lovely and happy PUPO.
Angela: That’s totally normal my FS says its absorbed within 30 mins of being inserted so its just the conduit that’s coming out.
TTHC: Oh hon you are truly amazing to come on here and still wish everyone well with their journeys after everything you have been through. I hope you are doing OK and finding support in your loved ones in this horrible time. Thinking of you hon .
PinkB: Oh hon glad the move isn’t rushed, moving house isn’t pleasant at the best of times let along being pregnant and the extra worry with your specialist appointment. Let us know how the appointment goes. If you’re anywhere on the north side and need a hand let me know, i am just hanging out waiting to ovulate .
Starfish: Woo hoo for the final days of OCP, its a terrible drug to have to be on. My biggest side affect was libido, i just felt NOTHING. I can’t wait to hear how your cycle goes, i am so confident with everything for you lovely, you too have been one very patient lady.
Kelbelle & Crofty: How are you two lovely ladies going in the TWW?
AFM: Well O is way off this month, its CD13 today and it looks like it will be around CD18 onwards, my ovaries are still really large and there are lots of follicles still from my OHSS last month – largest follicle is only 8mm and E is 195. My FS is away for two weeks so i will not have him doing my ET, instead i will have Helen Peric, feels really weird i have become so attached to him and am kinda freaking out about it .
Results 1,151 to 1,160 of 1508

TTHC - my heart goes out to you and your angels. You are soooo strong and there are no words to describe this tragedy. All I can say is I'm so sorry for your loss and I hope and pray they are with all the little lost Angels who were too good for this world. I'm so glad you have such a wonderful family who are there to support you, DH and DS through this hard time. I would like to say that you and DH are stronger than me and DH - I often wonder if the reason why in have never seen the 2 lines, ever in my life - is because neither myself or DH could handle going through what you are gipong through - you're both going strong and deserve all the happiness in the world xo

Hi Sydney girls - sorry I've been MIA - haven't been able to post from Iphone for some reason - soooo frustrating!!!!!
I've also been quite exhausted with Jury Duty(finished now) I've been reading everyone's posts in my spare time and keep meaning to reply, just getting around to it today - it gets harder the longer you leave it!!!! Been very tired as well with the cycling as well - BTW, I'm not in the TWW - YET (wish I was that far ahead). Catch you all up at the end of my personals!!!!
G/L today for ET for LindyLou, and Angela - BIG fingers crossed for you both (Angela, what time was ET scheduled for today at WFC? It was like peak hour there this morning!!! I was there for BT and U/S)
Lola - fingers crossed your little embies get to day 5 and you have your well deserved transfer
Hi Traveller - welcome back!!!! Good to hear from you and doesn't sound like it's long til you start jabbing again!!!!!
Paddle - good luck jabbing and welcome back from Perth, did you like it? My mum is from WA so I still have family there, must go visit - just so hard to think about a holiday (when we need one…..) when you're like is consumed with IVF for last 12 months!
EO - how's BT results babe - are you still expecting to transfer on the 18th? If so we'll be in the dreaded TWW together sooner than we know it!!!!!! Hope you're lucky frosty is fighting its way to the front so the scientist can see the big hand wave - yelling out "pick me, pick me" - ahh can just see it now
Starfish - hope you're doing well and your patience isn't wearing thin…. Nearly there, not long now!!!!!
Bella - so sorry for you BFN - G/L with all your tests
Kellbelle - congrats on being PUPO with possible twinnies!!! Hoe many were able to be frozen? Hope you're surviving the dreaded TWW….
Pink B - Hope all is well with bubs and you're not stressing too much (says I ….) just keep thinking positive thoughts!!!! G/L with the house move as well.
Sticky - Congrats on your TWW - how many did you end up transferring? BTW - did you give yourself Pregnyl or did the Fertility Centre (or is Pregnyl given to the embies?????? Now I'm very confused!!!!!! My FS is adding Pregnyl and Passaries (instead of Crinone) for Progesterone support this cycle, I'm also low AMH, and from 4 x stim cycles, haven't got through lueteal support stage, so AF has always shown up on time, hence, no Crinone this time round - time to up the anti….. Also woo hoo on the DTD in the TWW, might hold off on telling DH bout that one - haha.
I hope I've covered everyone - my apologies if I haven't
AFM - well, had U/S today, and from U/S, the FNs had a "round the table conference" and have decided to hold off EPU til Friday this week (was expected Wednesday) as they think I'll have more numbers for Friday - however I could be risking 2 x embies as well. 1 is too big and they classify as a cyst, so as usual, looks like I'm on track to hopefully collect 4 to 5 - hopefully "5" as it is the luck number for the month!!!! For Cycle "5", and with that, hoping to get to a Day "5" transfer, something I've never gotten too before (due to low embryo numbers). So I'm back on Wednesday for another BT to see how things are tracking.
I'll do my best over the next few days to update the roll call - if someone gets to it before me, can you update me to EPU Friday 14th October.

Crofty...Pregnyl are injections. It's basically Hcg that tells your body to produce progesteron
They can't actually do anything for embryos except keeping them in the right media and leave them alone in the dark as much as possible and the right gases apparently.

Oh yes, bloody phone ...
I got 3 eggs only, all fertilized , had one transfered on day 3 and one was frozen at day 6. Hope this works , as my AMH, age and bankaccount all are working against me unfortunately. Very desperate would probably describe my mood at the moment.

Back as promised
Paddlegirl- Of course its fine to update the roll call, we all do it from time to time. Hope you have a great response this cycle!
Starf1sh- So happy that the end is in sight for your pill popping. Those side effects are terrible! I love the GA too, but EPU with the local was bearable. You still get a 'buzz' from it
TTHC- It is so admirable that you're already beginning to heal and remembering the twins with positive thoughts. Its incredible how your inner strength shines through when you need it. I hope your physical healing is swift and you can get back on the horse soon.
PinkB- Hope the house moving goes ahead smoothly. Packing & unpacking are right up there on my most hated list! Good luck for next weeks appointment
Sticky- Interesting how the new study shows that DTD is helpful, DH will be pleased . So close to your BT date, hope your embie has well & truly stuck by now
Traveler- Yay for AF and a new cycle , how exciting!
Lola- I hope there's a miracle and one or both of your embies is back on track at Day 5
EO- We were supposed to transfer 1, but ended up with 2. Will explain below. Funnily enough Dr R is on hols and I had a different FS do my ET today. Bummer that O isn't in sight yet, hopefully just a few more days and you'll be there
Angela- Congrats on being PUPO and getting 4 frozen! Your BT date is the same as mine
Crofty- Its definitely hard to keep up in here at the moment! Got everything crossed for your EPU on Friday
Hi to anyone I've missed
AFM- We went into the clinic expecting a single transfer, but the embryologist ended up thawing both our frosties because the first one only had 70% cell survival. The second was doing better at 80% survival, so that's the one they were going to transfer. When they said the first one would be discarded, we opted to transfer both. No more in the freezer now, so we'll be doing Stim #3 if this doesn't work. On the plus side I'm PUPO with 2 blasties . BT on Fri 21/10.

Congrats to Lindy with twinny PUPO and Angela with being PUPO - double congrats on 4 frosties - way to go
