Well, we haven't been able to see any donor profiles yet so I'm not sure what they tell you about them. They're anonymous though so there wouldn't be any photos. I think it will probably have some basic info like height, ethnicity, age, colouring, medical history, etc.
I'm due to to start jabbing when my AF arrives - it is due on 12th. But it depends on being able to choose a donor before then. We're hopeful not to need to the donor sperm anyway, it is just a backup. But my DH has had no sperm found so far - this time it will be a full micro dissection to see if there's any to be found at all. They'll coordinate that to have his procedure done on the same day they do EPU from me. The specialist for DH reckons there's a 50/50 chance of finding any. The donor sperm is a backup, in case none is found in DH ... then the cycle and eggs are not wasted. Will be an emotional day either way!

Just a quick one today. Had EPU this morning and got 14 eggies We are pretty happy with that as I thought I might only get 6. Pretty sore though.
Hope everyone else is well

Hi girls, I'm going to read and reply properly later to all your posts but I'm logging on for another quick question as I'm a novice @ IVF...
So I pushed the nurse for bt as I thought I might have been ovulating yesterday. She said there was no need but would do it for my piece of mind - anyway she calls me back & says they want me to come in for another test 7am tomorrow as my progesterone levels are quite high, what does this mean?? I didn't think to ask....PLEASE HELP
Luckily I pushed her for a test!

Samarasmum - I'm on ethinyl estradiol tabs, started on 3 tabs, increased to 5 after a week and reduced back to 2 when I started my pessaries 3 days ago
Afm - just spoke to the nurse and she said that my progesterone is quite low, (not sure what numbers) I've been increased from 1 morning & night to 1 at morning & 2 at night. Just wondering if anyone else experienced low progesterone and should I b worried??

Hi lovely ladies!! Hoe everyone is well!!
As this is my first time on the TWW i was wondering if anyone has experienced a low mild cramping/pulling sensation?? It started yesterday and I have felt it all day today. It feels quite icky! Any advise or other experiences??
I had my Pregnyl injection today which as far as I understand is used to help the ovary continue to produce progesterone, which along with the Crinone Progesterone helps to create a comfy lil bed for the embie to snuggle into!
MARTTC - Im glad things are podding along nicely! Hope you get a great EPU later in the week!
Sunshine - How are you feeling?? Our other Embies didn't make it to the Frostyland either! We were disappointed but the nurse told me only 30% of Embies get there!!
Hope2487 - How are you feeling now?? Whats next for you??
Noms & Clementine Grace - Good Luck for you ET in a few days!! xx My best advise is rest for a few days if you can, even if you feel fab the next day! Cos I felt crampy crappola on day 2!
Wewannabub & Elly Star - How are you going?? TWW sux!! lol
Babydust and stickies for all!!!

Gstef - hope for you it's implantation
I'm actually stressing as they think my progesterone levels are to high :-( could be an issue - I'll be devastated if I end up with a cancelled cycle :-(
I asked the doc for a bt on Friday and she said no - I'm going to tell her I'm disappointed tomorrow if there's a problem :-(

so i had my very first ET went well this morning, all 3 of my embies made it, so i had the one that had made it to blast, which im stoked! the other two are only a day away from blast and are going to be frozen. The only thing is after the transfer, i was given an injection at the clinc, i can't remember exactly, but i think it was progestrone to help with the follicals. This has given me a very sore stomach and im struggling to stand up and walk around. Is this normal? If im still like this tomorrow i will call the clinc.

PoppyLoppy 14 eggs that is a great number
Lovebug How are you going?
Sunshine Congratulations on being PUPO. Tip for TWW just take one day at a time and try to keep busy. Just remember it only takes one.
GStef Just remember it only takes one.
MARTTC Try not to stress and take one day at a time. When they reach 18 / 19 they will ask you to take trigger. Crossfingers that everything will be ok with you BT and you have trigger tomorrow night.
Mummyofaddi Yay for AF showing up and the rollercoaster ride begins.
Hubba Goodluck with your scan next week.
Elly_star 5 frosties is great. Good luck with keeping yourself busy with your studies. 16th is a good date as it is my birthday. I am popping progynova 2 pills 3 times a day. The BT and scan is to check my levels and my lining to see if I am ready to start the pessaries.
Kahu and congratulations on being PUPO (Pregnant Until Proven Otherwise)
Capru_12 How was your scan? I hope you get your computer fixed soon.
Misty Good luck with Jabbing tomorrow.
Peoniesarepretty That is great that you are near the top of the donor list. Hopefully you won’t need a donor.
Noms82 I find out on Friday when I start my pessaries and I have them for 5 days before my transfer. I will be starting on 400mg 3 times a day
A Big Jessesgirl, Rice, Dancingbutterfly and everyone else.
AFM I has a lovely weekend down south. The kids loved the beach this morning. I am glad to be home. Getting closer to Friday for BT and scan.
