Happy to give you any info that helps as I know you will discuss with your doc so I don't feel too much like a mad scientist!
Through all this I have found reserves and resilience in myself i didn't know existed. But rather than me being anything great, you are an inspiration to me Rachel! I am in your corner cheering you on and anytime you need anything, any info (I have way too much of that) or an ear to listen I am all ears. Your strength and perseverance amazed me at a time when I felt I couldn't go on myself

Thank god now onto new fs, new protocol with added growth hormones which seems to have helped so far, and really hope to transfer 2 if we have them on day 5. New fs said to cut it off at pass, as in wait til day 5, and if you have nothing it's better to know they didn't survive than torture ourselves through a hopeless tww. It's harsh but probably needed given past 2 cycles we need to know if our embryos can make it to day 5. all previous cycles they did, but past 2 we had icsi disasters with many eggs bursting and will never use icsi again but that's another story! About to make phone call at 9.30 this morn to see how we are going on day 4, very nervous but things are looking better so far. Hoping for double transfer tomorrow morn. Will keep you posted!

Very sorry to hear of your loss. I've transferred 1, 2 and 3 embroys at once (I believe my doctor is one of the only ones who would let you do 3 at once and she made me promise I wouldn't have triplets!). For me - I've had my best results on 2 embryos being transferred at once but I'm still to reach that elusive goal of a child. It's a very personal choice - I think if you can have an honest conversation with your FS and tell them where you are at then they would be supportive of transferring 2 for you. I know that has certainly been the case with us. I always said that i'd never go past transfer 10 and am just booking on for cycle 15 so I can totally understand your frustration and loss. I hope this last cycle is the one where you get your dreams fulfilled.

I took low dose aspirin for my final FET cycle so it may be different if you're having the EPU as well given it does involve surgery.
I started CD1 all the way to 20 weeks preg.
My FS isn't convinced aspirin helps with anything either (I don't have a blood clotting issue) but he said 'it can't hurt' and helps with forming lining as well.
I almost didn't tell him I was going to take it but then I felt that he has a medical duty of care to ensure my health therefore I should at least run the idea past him first.
Oh hon I really hope you get to cancel your Dr M appt again very soon.

I use baby aspirin from two days after egg collection and then start clexane from a few days after transfer (depends if it's a 2 or 5 day transfer).

I used aspirin like other posters and when I resumed it after et, continued until WELL into pregnancy.
I have not heard any negative things regarding taking it. It is a relatively widely used drug for many reasons.
You need to let doctors know you are on it as it is a blood thinner.
Prednisolone is a more serious drug and is only available with a script.
