Hi ladies, no personals this time sorry, just checking in to say 11 of our 14 fertilized. Will get a call tomorrow about their progress. I had a massive run in with one of my FN in regards to ET. Yesterday I was told by my FS that I could transfer two, only to be told today by FN that it won't be happening. They're worried about ohss which I can understand. I just feel ripped off as ET was the only choice in this entire process that was ours and now it's gone. All the positivity and hope I had for this cycle has flown out the window.

Bellavista - hugs x Sorry to hear your news that really sucks I hope you can fet this cycle. Its scary waiting for that defrost. Xx
Racheal - hooray! Great news. Fx those embies behave x
TJ - welcome to this crazy journey. The first cycle is a bit daunting. My recommendations is ask questions and never feel silly! Thats why we pay our drs and clinics the big bucks. Also write everything down... My brain had a few short circuits during my cycle and I kept having to double check info
Gstef - good luck heading into EPU x
Baby+1 - I think its a good sign. Your angel friend can be guiding that little embie home to the mumma ship x Good luck over the next few days x
Peonies - Hi! back again x The bleed must be frustrating... Any scans to see what your lining looks like? We are trying to confirm if my bleed over the weekend was a light AF or just a breakthru. If I get any info will pass on x
Emmylou - Hi! Hope AF plays nice and turns up soon for you. Frustrating waiting for her!
Muzzy - Hi again... This is our month x I am doing accupuncture again although less often as I have used my insurance limit already oops!!! Love the relaxation it gives you!!
Clem - we sure are. Surely this is our month!! How are you? X
Hi everyone else x sorry trying to catch up om this busy thread
Afm - sitting in the waiting room again! FS was meant to call re this cycle but hasnt yet so waiting for confirmation of this cycle and what our plan is.
I want a few more tests done for this round so we can know if anything was missed before we transfer again. Anything I should look at? We have done usual genetic screens, lap surgery and bloods.

Rachel, congrats on a great egg haul! Hope you are feeling better soon.
Bella, so sorry to hear about your m/c You've done enough cycles its not fair really hope that you can go again in July, not too far away.
Franniesplace, god neither sounds like a great option. Have my fingers crossed that it ends up sorting itself out.
Ngaiz, 11 is great! How can the FN make the decision about your transfer? You don't want to end up with OHSS, but can't you freeze and then do a transfer? it sounds like you might get a great batch if you've got a great fertilisation rate.
Dancing, if my next cycle fails, i want some more tests too. I asked to try Clexane this cycle, so hope it gets us over the edge.

Thought I knew most abbreviations but was does DET stand for?
Emmylou – hello and welcome. I’m taking DHEA too and it definitely helped me out on my last cycle, even though it was a BFN. I love taking it, I wonder how it’s worked this time around? With DHEA it is recommended to be on it for 3 months to see results, but I’m sure I’ve read somewhere on BH that a lady took it for less and got her IVF BFP, so who knows??? Good luck with your appointment tomorrow .
Toni – how did your Dr’s appointment go today? Thinking of you .
Clementine – I’m sniffing away and was due to start jabbing as well today, but AF hasn’t arrived so I have no idea what’s going on. The cat on my avatar is the OMG Cat I found from Youtube, it always cracks me up http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_S5cXbXe-4 When I was telling my friend I accidentally showed her the adults only version by mistake http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3pRic1VEsuc I just put in OMG Cat just now and I just saw a new one with the OMG Cat watching the film clip for I’m Sexy and I Know It. Man I love that cat. Anyway, onto more important things, only 16 days until ET for you, yay
Ngaiz – well done, 11 fertilised is great news. How have you been feeling? That sux about not being able to transfer 2, can I ask why not? What does your FS say, surely he/she has the authority not the FNs??? My clinic allows it once you turn 35. So frustrating when the choice is taken away, grrr. Best of luck for ET on Friday .
1babyplease – good luck with your FET on Monday . I’d like to think your friend is looking down on you and giving you some extra help on Monday. I take it as a good sign, even though it is sad your friend passed that day.
Frannie – how did the US go?
Peonies – so sorry you are experiencing more bleeding, I agree, WTF? Can you talk to your FS/FN about it?
Dancingbutterfly – hello and welcome. So sorry you got a BFN yesterday, but welcome to July/August, hope this is the cycle for you. Have you seen your FS yet?
Lackers – thanks for saying I’m strong, I don’t feel that way sometimes though, this damn TTC journey is so unfair to us all
KandP – I love taking DHEA as my egg quality is crap and it helped in my last cycle. Even though I had a small amount of eggs at PU they all fertilised, when the cycle beforehand I had 2 eggs at PU and none fertilised. The only side effect I have is pimples/oily skin, yuk. Anyway, glad to hear AF arrived and you can start your cycle now. How did your appointment go this morning?
Rachael – fantastic news on your EPU, 9 mature, that’s great. I hope your pain has eased. Best wishes on the fert call tomorrow .
Bellavista – hello and welcome. I am so very sorry to hear of your 4th mc, so unfair. I hope all goes well for you on Sunday for your FET .
GStef – good luck with EPU next week (hopefully Monday) .
TJ79 – hello and welcome. Sorry to hear you had surgery but how nice to hear from the surgeon that your ovaries and uterus looked excellent, sounds like a pick up line to me. Best wishes on your upcoming appointment on the 12th.
AFM – Well I have no idea what’s going on. My AF is the biggest biatch in the world . I have all my usual symptons that she’s about to appear and she was due today, which is the day I need to start my injections. As per their schedule, I need to phone my clinic if AF doesn’t arrive. So I phoned this morning hoping that by the time a nurse calls me back she would have arrived. I told them to ring my mobile as I was at work today and didn’t want them to call on the work phone as I didn’t want to discuss my period not arriving to the whole office, especially as I sit near the IT guys. I had my phone near me the whole day, I even took it in with me when I went to the toilet. The only time I left it for not even 10 minutes of course they called, but I rung back within 2 minutes of the missed call and no one called me back. I’ll have to call again in the morning but then I missed today’s injections so I’m very worried now, I hope it hasn’t ruined my chances for cycling this month. Before anyone thinks it’s late because I may be UTD, this is just not possible. I know AF is on her way but she’s just teasing my and making me stress .

Hi mumtochris The appointment went really well, i'm on a bloody cocktail of stuff that I start taking tomorrow:
600iu Gonal F
Then there are all the supplements! We're adding CoQ10 to the mix as it's apparently a great antioxidant and can help with egg quality.
The only concern we have is that EPU might be on a day that my husband is interstate He's starting a new job next week and while he should be able to take a day off for EPU if he's here, he has to travel to Sydney for the corporate induction on the 11/12 July. I"m hoping that with this protocol, if it works out that i would have gone in on that date, Ben can coast me for a couple of extra days
AF was 8 days late for me, this time round - i'd actually called the FN to let her know and she wanted me to go in on Monday if it hadn't arrived so i could get bloods done to test my hormones. It's so frustrating!
emmylou - how did your appointment go? What time were you there? I was early - 6.40 today!
Franniesplace - i just read about your ectopic - I really really really hope it sorts out naturally for you, i can't imagine what you must be feeling right now hon,
Ngaiz - Congrats on a great result - 11 fertilised!! woohoo!
Peonies - More bleeding? That's no good love - i hope it all settles down really soon xo
Bellavista - I'm so very sorry to hear about your mc i have everything crossed for you that your embies thaw.
I'm sorry if i've missed anyone - but i hope/wish/everything that BTs/EPUs/ETs and everything else go brilliantly for you all and that we get some GOOD NEWS in here in the coming couple of months

Peonies, just curious, how long after m/c did it take for your hcg to go to zero? Have you had a normal AF yet? I've now been bleeding nearly 20 days. So frustrating! Especially as I seem to have my libido back... Poor DH is quite worried about the bleeding, keeps saying we should see someone - I've tried to explain that we have, and in fact a FS is about the best possible person to ask about these things and even he's told us its normal and not to worry. But between that and all the BT's I'd be no use to a vampire at the moment.

Franniesplace - sorry to hear about your ectopic. Hope the bleeding stops soon (like IVF isn't hard enough!)
KandP - I added COQ10 and Royal Jelly tablets into the mix this cycle to improve my egg quality since I read so much about them. It will be hard to compare results though as we did natural fert last cycle and PICSI this cycle.
Mumtochris - Hope your AF arrives soon so you can cycle again. It's amazing how much we want AF to arrive after a BFN.
Clementine Grace - Thanks the pain has eased but still tender. Bleeding has slowed but still there. The nurse said the bleeding should stop today otherwise I need to let them know.
Dancingbutterfly - Sorry to hear about your BFN. The next test I would like done is for NK cells. There seems to be quite a bit of talk on these forums about it.
Ngaiz - Congrats on your fert rate! We have requested to transfer 2 if all goes well on Monday. Not sure why your clinic is being difficult. I would push for it or at least they need to give you a good explanation.
TJ79 - Welcome to this thread! You will learn a lot during your first cycle. It's amazing how much stronger you become during the process. Good luck with it all, and if you have any questions the woman here are fabulous.
Gstef - FX your EPU is on Monday. All the best!
1xbabyplease - My ET should be on Monday if all goes well this week so we might be in the 2ww together.
Toni81- sorry that the emb has implanted incorrectly. Hopefully they sort it out and you will be on the road to recovery.
Sorry if I missed anyone, good luck to you too!
AFM - felt sick/stressed waiting for the call this morning for D1 post EPU update. Nurse called nice and early. 12 eggs retrieved and out of the 8 or 9 mature eggs FS confirmed yesterday, we had 10 mature today and 9 fertilised. So far so good, this time last cycle I was in tears but we didn't do PICSI. Next update will be on Sat, this will give us a better indication on the results. FS wants to do a 5DT. FX all goes well and I get through this week!!

Frannie – I am so sorry to read about ur ectopic I really hope ur hcg levels keep dropping & it comes away naturally.
AFM – I had my Dr’s appt yest & got told that I will be going in for surgery Friday & they will be taking the whole left tube as the pregnancy is at the start of my tube near the ovary. I got a little upset in the Dr’s surgery & she said in a nice way that this could be a good thing as there is 1 less place for the FET to go next time & I will still be able to use my ovary with IVF just means I will have a less chance of falling naturally & 2 be honest that hasn’t been working so well in the past. Oh well I guess I once again like all of us I will have to play the hand I have been dealt & try 2 move on. I will keep reading this but prob won’t be posting anything for a lil while. I wish u all the best of luck & hope ur baby dreams come true this month.
