    Good luck to Sunny & Leanne for your appointments today !

    Micca, any news ? Still beta-ing tomorrow ?

    Fortitude, I know it's hard re dildo cam but try not to think about it. Can you imagine how many different sights those FNs & FSs have seen through their careers down the lower end of an examination table ? It's ironic, the other day I wanted to get my breasts checked properly by the GP but I insisted on a female doc. And here I am, I've been at my clinic around over dozen times with my feet in stirrups, bearing it all to my male FS & sometimes male embryologist & anathestiast. (sp)

    Had my US- it's start of day 5 today. Had 3 FSH Gonal 250 injections so far Sat, Sun, Mon- so I guess it's still early days. Not feeling too positive. Actually feel bit anxious.

    US RESULTS:
    Left 11x9 Average 10 + 1 under 10.
    Right 4 x <10.

    Seems like... 6. FS said expect 4-5 eggs. So I guess if all 6 had eggs then it would be good. But they won't right? Will more follicles come up over time?
    Haven't cried yet, but I can feel the tears in there.
    Am worried that I am too old and am wasting my time.
    Off to sulk...

    40tude

    PS Clinic called and said to put the Ginal F up to 275.

    Sunny- Hope your news is good at the FS and you can move forward now.

    Fortitude- that is a great result. My 1 st cycle on 225 gonal I only got 3 eggs from 3-4 follies. Remember the 1st cycle is always going to be test cycle to see how you react. I ended up between 600-900 on final cycles. They say lower doses and less eggs give better quality as less stress on follies.

    Micca - Any POAS? Good luck for beta tomorrow.

    Fortitude
    - Chin up...they are great results.

    Leannep - How did you go today? I hope better than my appt.

    AFM
    I am hugely disappointed and deflated. My appointment this afternoon didnt reveal anything more about my low positive ANA. Apparently it is not a problem and is not affecting the embryos or implantation. My increased numbers on ANA is just a natural thing....could go up or could go down in the future....but the whole jump from 1:60 to 1:640 in a year, is probably due to.....yes, you guessed it, age!!!

    Today's specialist told me exactly the same as my FS....predinisolone and baby aspirin is apparently all I need...clexane isnt going to help me. So I have paid $225 for the same information as what FS told me at my $150 appointment.

    DP has pretty much lost all confidence in FS and I must admit, I am starting to feel the same way. Why did FS want to seek a second opinion for something that was soooo cut and dried. When we got in the lift after the appointment this arvo, DP's comment was "well that was a whole lot of dollars for f**k all".

    Next step is to go back to FS (another $150) for him to suggest a protocol for our next DET....he wouldnt give us our final protocol until after todays appointment. However, he has already stated that he would most likely suggest the same as the last protocol (which has actually been the same for the last two), but with Assisted Hatching. If that happens, Im actually going to say NO...you put the same effort in, the same result comes out!!!

    I am soooo over being told that I have this wrong with me and that wrong with me, which doesnt end up being the case, its so easy to pass things off as being age related!! Plus specialist are not cheap and add that to FS fees, cycling fees, cost of supplements and acupuncture and on top of all that, the cost for donor eggs!!!

    Hey Sunny,
    (((((BIG HUGS!!!)))))
    How terribly frustrating to be told the same thing, I agree with DP and add the sentiment "WTF?". Especially as it is also a waste of $.
    Just a thought, since the confidence is depleating, just putting it out there: have you thought about changing FS? Is it an option? Is there anyone else in your area?

    I posted a long post last night.... but small baby corrupted keys and it was lost... she loves bashing the keyboard...so far I have lost 5 keys..sigh..

    Fortitude... wow that result is excellent... and they always get 2-3 more than what you think so you could get about 10+..most 20yr olds cant get that !!. The first scan is quite hard to count because your ovaries are still not to big.. as the follies enlarge it gets easier to count... also the FS are not great on the accurate count... so I think you have a very nice crop there....just wait until the next scan !!!

    SUnny
    ... what is it with FS/doctors that they think that playing the age card gets them off the hook...
    I would certainly be pushing to cycle with prednisone/aspirin/clexane... and maybe try a medicated FET rather than a HRT...so you have your own estrogen/ progesterone and timing like a natural cycle... I did one and got 2 lovely follicles...
    my protocol... CD3-6 femura 5mg daily CD6-12 gonal F 250-300 I had a great lining, good oestrogen levels and felt great.. also the luteal support is more natural oncee you concieve... I also started aspirin/prednisone 10mg CD1, and clexane CD 6.
    if you are unhappy with your FS then change .... I did that with my precious embies (moved them from sydney to brisbane)... was not a happy camper..they were easily shifted from clinics.. I would seriously give Wazza at QFG a shot at you... he does a lot of donor transfers as well.

    lilbirdy... had to laugh at you bearing your girly privates to the FS without blinking an eye... but get squirmish over a boob check..lol.

    leanne.... has the hangover left the building yet... woohoo for having a real life and remembering what a social outing is like.... I dont think I have had alchohol for ages..


    ok well today is 15dpo... no pregnyl in the system last shot 5 days ago and from previous cycle and using a FResponse test I know it has left after 3 days.
    So I did a FMU POAS test this AM...and..... OMFG !!!! it was positive... a BFP..
    I have been feeling pregnant the last couple of days.. nausea- which is a new thing for me.... ovarian pain (got that with DD) tiredness and the usual uterine pains.... I am absolutely in shock... as you all know I had written this cycle completely off... I mean really a couple of 5 cell 43yr+ embies have any chance of working??? ...well someone is laughing at me.... I must say the 2ww went really quickly since I was in complete denial of it working...
    SO I will do the formal beta tomorrow...but wont get results until after 7pm due to living in the country. Im feeling very very nervous on the levels.. I wont do a second beta until monday... the next time I am in town and the lab.. so it will be a nervous wait after tomorrow if it is truely positive.
    of course being the glorious age of 43.5yr... means that the miscarrage risks is about 50% and the trisomy risk is 1:26 so a few hurdles to pass yet...
    at least I wont have to work on thursday ....so I will either have a sleepless night because the beta was good....or one because of it being bad... at least there is no work..lol..
    so from one of the old crustie reproductive geriatrics.... if I can do it you all can do it !!!

    BOOOO YEAH!!!!!!!! Way to go Micca!!!

    Keeping you in my thoughts for a sticky stayer. Oh and I reckon I know why you got a BFP... you know kids, they like to cramp your style sometimes and those little embies heard you thinking about the ski season. LOL

    PS thanks for the morale boost- I am glad that 6 is GOOD, I thought it was BAD!! With my new higher Gonal maybe I will breed a crop of them? LOL

    OMG Micca, freaken what ????? Arrrgggh, waiting for beta results etc will be torture but just fantastic news !!!!!! Will check back in tomorrow night.

    Fortitude,
    as others said, they are very nice numbers, sit tight and see how your next scan goes.

    Sunny, I'm so sorry the second opinion seems worthless. Maybe a new FS ? I swapped after two cycles to my current one.

    Leanne, hoping you went ok with the FS.
