Can't remember all the other posts, as I'm still (lost) without my MacBook, so can't do personals on my phone.
For whomever asked though my NT scan is on Friday and I won't get the results till the following Thursday - stupid waiting!!! Really wish my OB took bloods earlier so I could obtain the results on the same day like most people.
Hi to everyone, I heard Syd finally turned on the sun, so I am looking fwd to coming home and seeing it shining brightly on Wed.
Short and sweet because I sent this from my iPhone.

Oh man, I'm struggling to keep up with this thread lately!
Quartz- Oh sweetie, not again . I'm having a WTF moment wondering how the hell you're not pregnant yet when you have such perfect hatching blasties. I know its a long shot, but I hope your BT miraculously found some HCG...
Traveler- Grrr to your DH saying the #1 thing NOT to say to an infertile . Have you thought about a counselling session at your clinic? It could help your DH realise he's way off base with his comments, and also help with the mental/emotional side of coping after your m/c. I never knew how helpful it could be til DH & I had a few sessions.
TTHC- yay for 7 good follies! EPU will be here before you know it. The PGD lab have obviously gotten my telepathic messages to get my samples on the machine . Update below...
Bella- So close to jabbing now! And yay for DH not going away! Interesting that you were told no need for acu post-ET, in all my discussions with Dr K, he's indicated he'll give me the pre- & post-ET treatments. Better clarify when I see him tomorrow. My FET will definitely be rolling with next AF!
Bebe- So pleased that you're having quality time with your DH and feeling normal again. Have a safe trip home and good luck for your NT scan!
Lola- Congrats on your awesome lining, that's 2 for 2 now on the pom juice! Looking forward to hearing how you went with FET today! Which frosty are you using, the one from DS cycle or the new one (or both)? Truckloads of babydust to you! Oh and good luck getting through the IL's visit.
Paddlegirl- we went to Hawks Nest for our camping holiday, and this weekend coming we're off to Lake Lyell (near Lithgow). DH bought an inflatable canoe so we can have a paddle on the lake . Has AF showed yet?
Jen- Well you've certainly had your ups & downs throughout the cycle. Congrats on getting to ET and being PUPO! I know its hard, but try not to analyse & re-analyse every symptom... none of them are 100% indicators of BFN or BFP, so save yourself the mind-screwing (if you can!). Hoping embie has snuggled in tight by now
Peonies- I'm with Genea Liverpool. Thanks for doing the smilies that I couldn't do after Felicita's BFP post, that was spot on! It would've been EO who gave advice about OHSS, she had it on her last cycle. As for acu, I believe its helpful with a therapist who specialises in IVF & infertility. Research wise, there is a proven link between increased IVF success when acupuncture is done a few hours before and after ET.
Angelanathan- nice to see you're still around. Hope all is going well in your pregnancy.
Alison- Welcome to our thread! I also had a cycle where one follie raced ahead of all the others. My FS chose to sacrifice it and stim a few days extra to catch the smaller crop. I hope you'll feel better today after your BT results come through, and that you'll get to EPU with some nice follies intact
EO- I am so so so thrilled at your awesome thaw/FET results, this is your golden embie hun ! Keep googling those prams! Sending lots of good vibes and super sticky babydust for the rest of your TWW
Felicita- are you still pinching yourself?? I am still grinning ear to ear when I think of you . So happy to hear the line is getting darker!
Berecka- I hope the embie(s) you put back have thrived in their proper home unlike their siblings in the dish . You just never know, so keep that hope alive!
Mac8- Hi & welcome! I lost my Mum in March 2009 and find it hard at times, wishing she were here for moral support. I like to think she's helping me from the 'other side'. Its great having the fabulous ladies in this thread to lean on, so you've come to the right place.
Nat- Wow, you are a wedding planner extraordinaire! So glad its all coming together. So what was the verdict on the triple clomid dose? If you O'd, I hope you caught it!
Hi to everyone else, sorry for missing you above.
AFM- My PGD results have come through earlier than expected, yippee! Of our 3 embies, 2 of them are chromosomally normal . I am deliriously happy with that and so excited for FET next month! I was feeling pretty crap over the weekend as I had a job interview for a promotion on Friday & think I flunked badly, but now I don't give a rats about that. I have TWO good embies

Super quick cos I'm at a work function.
All went well. All cells survived defrost and was 3/4 expanded when they popped it back. Have no idea whether it was the one from my DS' cycle or my last cycle. Too much emotions associated with DS cycle if it fails.
Back later to check in on everyone.

Quartz - how did things go today? Hope you're ok xx

Just a real quick one, got my BT results, and all looking good so was stressed and worried for nothing. My levels are doubling as they should, however they are still worried I will O before the other follies have a chance to catch up to the big one, so now on 2 shots a day of the Organtrun (or however you spell it). Back tomorrow for another scan and BT, and hopefully my little 8mm follies are up around 14mm and bloods are still all ok.
Have a great day

Lindy - What awesome news! Will you transfer one or two?
Quartz - I really hope BT showed something different, and you're okay.
Nat - thank goodness o happened. What a relief after all this time.
That's all I can remember on my phone - sorry to everyone else I missed.
AFM - my last post bragging bout my MS being almost gone jinxed me. I've been in bed the last 2 days and I'm still in Perth and have not been able to see my friend and missed DH work dinner last night. So annoying, but again at least I know it's a good sign. Bring on Friday for my scan!

TTHC: Everything sounds fantastic from your scan honey, i have everything crossed that tomorrow’s scan shows lots of lovely follies growing away in there. Try not to worry about your last stim cycle, there really is a pattern on BH that shows so many ladies having a real bummer 2nd stim cycle and then the following cycle is their winning one. So glad to hear your feeling good about it all, it makes the cycles a lot easier. Cmon lil follies grow for yo mumma.
Alison: That’s fantastic news that everything is still on track, bummer about the extra needle but if it saves your little eggies than that’s all that matters.
Quartz: How did your BT go hon?
Lola: Woo hoot thats awesome that it all went so well. I am so happy for your little bubsicle. Welcome to PUPOville, also known as Crazy Town. Hope everything is going OK with your in-laws and they aren’t being too stressful. I can’t believe your FIL said that – not very considerate at all, but i bet he didn’t even realise how upsetting his comment was.
Nat: OMFG, that is great that you O hun, So did you give it a good effort and get busy with your DF?
Felicita: Has it sunk in yet that this IS finally IT hon? How many more HPT’s have you done? Cant wait to hear the news tomorrow from your BT about super high numbers – i wonder if there is one or two in there?
Peonies: So glad to hear your session with the counsellor went so well and what an absolute bonus that you didn’t have to pay for it. I had OHSS on my last stim cycle and my FS only gave me half a trigger shot to try and avoid it however it didn’t work and i still hyperstimualted. It was horrible and my body was out of whack for 3 months after that cycle. Most clinics don’t recommend half a trigger as there is a really large risk that your eggs won’t be mature enough for collection. Maybe your FS is talking about Coasting? It’s where they reduce your FSH for the last few days before trigger to let your Estrogen levels go down to avoid OHSS..
Traveler: Big hugs honey, it’s so hard to move forward when you don’t’ know what your body is doing. My DH says things like this to me all the time about relaxing and it will happen and i get SO angry at him. They of all people should know that’s not what they should be saying to us. I hope the spotting stops soon for you and your AF will show up so you can move to your next cycle.
Lindylou: That’s i so friggin amazing that you have two perfect little blasts waiting to meet their mummy. And with the success rates they quote you will be heading over to the Oct/Nov/Dec Due thread in no time. Hoping you are pleasantly surprised with promotion and your employer realises how fabulous you are at your job.
Bebe: Sounds like you had a great time away with your DH. Yay for your NT scan on Friday – will DH get to go with you or will he be back OS?
Bella: I go to the same acu clinic as Felicita but i use the one in the city. They are fantastic, and all of the documented evidence shows the increased pg rates for a session done just prior to the ET and also just after (so 2 on the same day). All the best for your BT tomorrow and then its off and racing again.
Sorry if i have missed anyone, trying to do personals in a limited 30 min lunch break is hard.
AFM: Sorry i have been MIA i am really struggling at the moment, not feeling positive about this cycle at all. I am trying so hard not to symptom watch as i am on progesterone and that stuff plays nasty tricks on us IVFers. BT is Friday so i am going to do a HPT Thursday night when i get home from work so prepare myself for the horrid call on Friday.
