Thanks Chiefsgirl.... not a wine drinker (I have osteoporosis), but consoled myself nicely with charcoal chicken, potato bake and finished with a big piece of homemade chocolate cake covered with Maltesers :-))
Ertgirl.... I've already had my thyroid zapped with nuclear medicine (about 6 years ago). For about 3 years it was up and down. Then for the past three years it's been pretty stable. In fact about 8 months ago my endocrinologist said not to come back to him again, and that just my GP could monitor it, but I definitely need to go back since those numbers in the past month have been all over the shop.

Now I want cake
ertgirl, my e2 was 3400 but by then 11 eggs had declared themselves. You will end up with roughly 500-1000 per mature egg (mine was 8840 by day 12 and I got 9 eggs). If you're too low/not responding, generally they will cancel the cycle, have a rethink, and try again. Every cycle is different. I tend to stimulate well, but they're usually all crap

Hi gals, I got my period today so I'm out. Pleh. I've been thinking of the odds of getting preggers at my (our) age and wondering what to do. Emotions all over the shop from 'lets call it quits now' to 'lets go hell for leather and damn the expense'. (think it will be something in between).
Anyway. Earliest I'll be cycling is in july I think as I'm on the long down reg. I really thought this one was a goer as it seemed the best embie so far. More fool me, I should know by now I'll be speaking to my FS about the next step.
Take it easy everyone and I will be following along.

Bongley, totally understand how u feel... I vacillate between those two options also, I just wonder if I should abandon the fiasco in favour of donor egglets. My fs thinks while I can make blasts I should try... It has just been a year of trying now ... Trying not to ruminate about it to the point that it becomes upsetting for me though. I don't think that achieves anything.
bertie Perhaps I am brave, perhaps impulsive, but also keen to succeed ASAP and yes twins is a risk of that, although it would seem quite unlikely at this point given my age and history. My FS regaled me with horror tales of cerebral palsy babies but since I'm a medico also, he knows I'm fully aware of the risks and prepared to accept them. TET is definitely a calculated risk, and I've transferred 6 blasts and 3 day 3 embies and have only achieved a missed mc in that time. If it doesn't work, I've proven to myself that my eggs are too old ... And its time to put DH in the safari suit (or maybe he wears the tiger onesie and I wear the safari suit haha) and head to Africa!
