DH should get results back today from Monash (our second opinion) hopefully!!
Do you mind me asking what % of poor abnormal sperm morphology your DH had? You obviously knew you had PCOS before that lap op?
Apparently I'm in the clear, that's why when DH results were 91% I was a little shocked to be told We had a 1% chance for naturally conceiving....
Has your DH been tested to see if his morphology had improved?
Congratulation on your baby XX
Did you fall pregnant first go??
Enjoy the hot day today!!!! :-D

Yeah I just think financially because we find out pretty much this week if IVF is where we are heading... Just not sure we can afford the extra monthly cost
My sis had her baby public at 27 weeks he was born & re wives amazing care in Monash pulic hospital... The whole sharing a room is annoying but I guess I could deal with that for a couple of days if had too

I have been MIA in a BIG way. I have read some of the threads and it looks like most of you are cruising along nicely. Good luck for aittleray!!
After the miscarriage in early December I went into complete meltdown. I didn't cope at all. Crying all the time, hating my body and was really unhappy for my last two weeks of teaching. I didn't stop crying until I saw a psychologist in early Jan. I got a referral late December but I didn't have the courage to call. Luckily, I was grieving and I am now starting to move forward.
I thought it would get easier but it doesn't. So much pain!
My DH and I got a second opinion today as I felt my FS wasn't being thorough enough. She wasn't even giving me options. When we saw him he was so thorough and told me how it is and what we can do to try for success in the future. As I am going through PGD with my syndrome they cannot test for other abnormalities. The other option was using a donor. We have decided to go down that path as they will do the assisted embryo selection. So we know that the chance of a miscarriage is a lot slimmer. The only person I was able to ask was my sister in law as she has already had children (a requirement). I was so nervous to ask and we were walking to a pizza place. When she said that she would be more than happy I had tears in my eyes. I kept hugging her.
I will make a an extra effort to keep in touch. Off to bed now

Alittleray good luck today Hun xxx
Pippi I had been wondering about you hun and where you were?? I'm glad you got some counciling sometime I wonder if I should be using the councilor as this is such a tough journey What a wonderful sister in law you have to do this for you I'm excited for you
Afm well I'm feeling a bit guilty today I had my birthday dinner last night and had two glasses of champagne without even thinking that had started sniffing!!! I also spent a lot of the day worried that now its been two years of trying and now I'm 42 I will need to look at how long I'm going to keep going oh well better get out of bed as I need to leave for work in 25 mins

Thanks Leannep. I am trying not to get too excited now just in case she backs out..... I want to give her a couple of days to think about it then catch up with her. She is going to England with her family in April so I think it is best not to do the cycle until after the trip. But in the meantime we can get the ball rolling and there is a process involved. Also, it will allow me to get my head in a better space.
Don't worry about the two drinks. I sometimes had a drink while I was sniffing but when I was injecting I stopped as I felt yucky. It won't do you any harm
Have you thought about doing the assisted embryo selection? It cost another 3000 but it checks to see which embryo's have abnormal chromosomes so it reduces risk of miscarriage. It is the 'new' thing now with older females going through IVF.

Hi Pippi, yeah been thinking of you too gal....I can understand the meltdown, it was hard for you. I hope the counselling helps you out dear. It is good to have someone to speak to about all this crap we are put through.
During my appt last fri the FS suggested PGD for us too. I don't understand what you mean by not being able to test all the chromosomes cos you mentioned about only testing one set of chromosome the last time, for the syndrome. is testing one pair of chromosome the same cost as testing all 23 pairs? I understand that to test for 23 pairs it costs about $3k. Can you not test all 23 pairs? The waiting list for PGD is long got to wait till march or April.
Leannep, was it your birthday yesterday? Happy belated birthday! I had my birthday yesterday! I am sure the champagne is fine. It is so hard on us, trying to do our best so we can give the best shots and have a baby.
Littleray, thinking of you Hun.
Afm 4th day of jabbing. I am so excited to be able to cycle again I don't know why. It is just good to be doing something rather than sitting around which i have been doing since the last bfn in nov. how time slips! At the moment feeling pretty relaxed. I know the anxiety will build up as the days go leading up to epu then will get worse before I get the fert result and climax on BT day! I hope I will survive through that.

Mom2OneDS- they only look for the syndrome. As they know specifically what to look for. Maybe they have to take out another cell and it will ruin the embryo??
My FS said that if I keep going down the same path my chances of conceiving is 30% but with a donor and the advanced embryo selection process it jumps to 60%! That kind of made our minds up. My Sister in law is excited and we have had a very long chat about pro's and con's with her eggs and me carrying and raising the child. I am not getting excited until the transfer as anything can happen in the meantime. But we are moving forward with a new plan of attack and new FS at MIVF.
I am now off for a scan on my uterus to check for polyps and irregularities. But FS said that it will most likely come back normal. They put black dye in my uterus which sounds gross!
Have a good weekend everyone!

Alittleray- Hope you're doing OK Have been checking in to see how your 2nd BT went, but I'm assuming you would have jumped on here if it was good news.
Pippi- So glad to hear from you! Sounds like you've found a new doctor who you have confidence with. After my first 3 failed cycles I found having a new doctor gave me the confidence to keep going. Even if it wasn't my first doctors fault that those cycles didn't work, I just needed a new perspective. Wishing you the best of luck with your new plans
Leanne and Mom2oneDS- I've got my fingers crossed that these are your lucky cycles

Hi LadiesJust a quick one as I am heading to bed.Marttc - to answer your questions, yes they tested my tubes after they knew I had PCOS. I think that it was wise to get it done before i started IVF to eliminate any other possible problems. From memory DH had only about 7% of 'good' sperm and they retested a few months later (he tried acupuncture during this time) and it was actually worse I think. Basically the dr said we only had about a 5% chance of conceiving naturally. Willow was conceived on our 5th transfer (no 4 was a m/c at 11wks), but we did 5 transfers btn about April and November so it was a very full on time for me and a relief to finally get pregnant.Pippi - so sorry to hear about the m/c last month, glad to hear that you are feeling better now. When I think back to my m/c, it is interesting as I don't think I gave myself the chance to properly grieve, I think that if my next transfer had not worked, I would have crashed and burnt as the grief would have caught up on me. I was actually thinking about it the other day and it still brings me to tears - it just takes time. Great news that your SIL is helping you out, that is very exciting.Hi to everyone else, off to bed for me.
