Naww, this is a bloody tough journey mummymaybe Three is still two more than you need.... there is still lots of hope! I truly hope that all three keep up the pace over the next couple of days....will you get two transferred?? Try and keep your chin up, big hugs xx
AFM - I'm just not too sure about the Prednisone as I think Warrens usual protocol is 10mg/day of Pred but my current FS had prescribed 25mg/day BUT, he only wanted me to take it for 5 days from pretend "ovulation day" until transfer and then stop. But because I swapped to Wazza's protocol, he mentioned that was a high dose but told me to still start it from the day I saw him (CD2) until a negative or 12 weeks......has anyone else taken 25mg/day??
I keep swapping between hopeful and then thinking it's all over! A teeny bit of a sore lower back tonight which is not usually a good sign for me and my past pregnancies
Digital HPT said 2-3 weeks on Sat, I'll test again tomorrow morning. I've done everything I can....tomorrow will reveal all I guess.....

Mummymaybe - this is such an awful emotional roller coaster ride for you. I know it is hard, but try and stay positive. I have everything crossed for your remaining three embies.
Ladydee - for my DS cycle with Waz, he had me on 20 mg/daily, which I commenced weaning off of at about 8-9 weeks so that I ceased the drug by end of 12 weeks. For my recent unsuccessful o/seas donor egg cycle, he only had me on 10 mg/daily. There are many views as to whether there is a nexus between the prednisone and cleft palate. You will find arguments stating there is a link and equally those that dispute such. A friend of mine also was prescribed a very high dose due to severe morning sickness and thankfully had no issues. I can understand why you are concerned, perhaps mention your worries to Wazza.

How was the progesterone today @Ladydee?
It's looking pretty likely we will have nothing to transfer. Day 5 and we have a 8, 10 and 12 cell. They haven't changed since yesterday. Final check in tomorrow but the nurse didn't even sound a little hopeful. Heartbroken is an understatement.

@mummymaybe, the results yesterday were good and I have Wazza to thank for that with out a doubt. A long way to go as I've miscarried up until 11 weeks but this is a good start.
hCG = 3270
Progesterone = 66
Oh Hun, my heart just dropped reading your post I can't believe it's ending this way when you had such a fantastic start!!! It's so not fair Have you talked to Warren, I'm sure he'd have a new plan of action up his sleeve?? Can they not transfer them earlier just to at least try? There has to be some way around whatever problem went wrong this time! I hope you get a miracle. Big hugs xoxoxoxo

Hi lovely ladies,
I just wanted to say Hi and introduce myself - I got a cancellation appointment with Wazza yesterday and I have to say I am madly in love with him already!
My DH came with me and we had a two hour appointment going over everything and even though the road is going to be difficult - I'm sure one way or another we will end up with a baby - it just may have to be through a donor egg as Wazza believes my eggs are just too old and faulty to work. But as I've been falling pregnant naturally without too much trouble, I do want to see if we can try my own eggs first, so we'll do a medicated cycle and possibly IUI first (maybe in January) and then go straight to IVF with egg screening if that doesn't work.
I at least have a little bit of hope back - my last FS, when I was just 4 weeks pregnant, I sat in his office crying my eyes out asking if we can do something to please save this baby so that I didn't miscarry again. And his answer was "You know your age, you know the statistics" and sent me out of the room still balling. And I lost that little one two weeks later.
At least I know if I fall pregnant Wazza will throw absolutely everything at me to prevent miscarriage if there is any possibility that I do have healthy bub on board. Yesterday at the scan I had two good sized follicles developing, so I'm starting on some low-grade treatment for this cycle - aspirin, DHEA, melatonin - and then we'll move to more assisted stuff early next year if I don't fall pregnant naturally this month.
Such a relief to get in with him and knowing that we don't have to wait for anything now that we're patients. I can see why people rave about him, he is a lovely man and we both really enjoyed his sense of humour. He even gave my DH a gyno lesson during my exam, so now DH wants me to call him Dr DH!! Hilarious!
Look forward to sharing the journey with other Wazza patients.

Welcome @Leisylou, Warren is lovely isn't he.
I hope your journey with him is short and very sweet.
@Ladydee, how are you feeling?
AFM, Nothing to transfer today so our chances for this year are over. Meeting with Warren tomorrow but looks like egg and sperm quality issues. My sister has already offered eggs so we still have options. I must say a drug/stress free Christmas holiday will be nice.

I'm sorry to hear @mummymaybe. Ive been there before and it is horrible to have your cycle stop so abruptly. I trust Wazza's opinion 110%. We did one cycle on our own and he recommended donor eggs on the next one. First donor cycle, first ET and first pregnancy ever :-). We even had our first frosty too.
Donor cycles are daunting at first. I felt like I was just standing on the outside looking in. But once ET day came it felt normal again. My daughter is now 18 months old and although we joke about how much she can look like and act like my sister. She is my daughter. She just has a lot of her aunts qualities (and not all the good ones lol).
Good luck with whichever way you choose to go. With a lot of determination and Wazza's special touch, there will be a baby in your future. Give up is not in his vocabulary. He even told my 55 year old menopausal mother he could get her pregnant if she wanted lol

Mummymaybe - Oh Hun, I am so very sorry. Such an awful emotional ride for you to have endured. This fertility game really makes no sense to me at all.
My last cycle with my own eggs was with the dear Wazza and I too had nothing to transfer and was gutted. I truly dropped my sh!t and needed to speak with the counsellor. My heart goes out to you. Take good care of yourself and be kind to yourself. Much love to you both at this difficult time. Xx
AFM - dear Wazza sent me a letter today sending his regards and expressing his sorrow to learn of our recent BFN. I still haven't made a follow up appointment, as I just can't bring myself to want to give it anymore thought for the moment. I must email them tomorrow so they at the very least don't think I am rude.

@mummymaybe - your news makes me so sad, I just can't believe it What a sh!tty, cr@ppy journey this infertility business can all be Falling pregnant is supposed to be the most easiest, stress-free thing in the world and yet some of us just get hammered with bad news and worst case scenarios over and over and over again. I SO wish it was in my power to change your results! I hope you have lots of support around you and that you and hubby can move forward together, stronger than ever. Xxxx
