Cevapa! It's not really sink in, and at 5 weeks we still have a long way to go before my nerves settle.
That's great to hear that you have a plan. Re: the chromosomal testing, are you doing that blood test that costs $385? It tests from CF, Tay-Sachs and Fragile x? Or is there another one?
Re: PGD, we seriously considered it, and said if our first cycle didn't work, we would do it. I suppose the flip side is that you ideally want to test on a 5d blast, and you have to do ICSI. For us, we did 50% ICSI which was ~10 injected, and of those only ONE made it to 5d. The other 4 were natural. So definitely something to think about.
Wishing you so much luck in January... xxx

Cevapa I'm doing ok. It's been a rough time morning sickness wise and has actually taken me a while to get my head around this pregnancy as I was ready for it not to work and be totally done. I do know I'm very lucky so trying not to complain

Hi ladies. I'm back....
Hi everyone. I've been off trying to sort out my fertility issues.
Congrats to all those with BFP.
I'm all over the place. Been doing chinese herbs and accupuncture and from being a regular 28 day cycle it's jumped to 22 now I currently haven't had a period. And not pregnant either.
I've become irregular. Tried to get into seeing Lynn to see what can be done.
The guy who I'm seeing Richard believes my body has issues.
But they issues weren't there before. Well least I think they weren't.
I ovulated naturally was only using chinese medicine to improve my egg quality plus hubby quality and motility.
Seems like I've screwed up.
Hitting 40 within a couple of monthhs adds to the stress.
Has this happened to anyone who was regular then with TCM and accupunture became irregular?
Not certain if I should stop taking the Chinese herb tea. Confused gutted and going greyer faster than ever. Lol.
Where to from here? 2015 sees me back on the IVF train ride with Lynn of course.
Hope you are all having a better day than myself. xx

Hi ladysexbomb, Lynn does not recommend taking the Chinese herbs or medicines while cycling or preparing for a cycle. I would stop and see if your body comes back. Also fertility drops of very very quickly around 40 so that could be it as well.

@lilypily thanks for replying. I now can understand why.
Only hoping my body re adjusts itself and cycles as she did normally.
I was hoping the tcm with Melatonin 4mg plus vitamin E and royal jelly caps would only improve egg quality.
Things just gone haywire. Will only continue with melatonin and royal jelly and vit E til I can see Lynn again.
Does anyone know what could bring on a period?

Lynn Burmeister Monash IVF-feedback wanted please #4
@lileitak the blood tests we're doing are just bulk billed - some things listed are APCR, anti thrombin, Lepus anticoagulant and anti cardiolipin antibody - it's all jibberish to me.
I'm really torn about the testing - our embryos are 5day blast - we have decided to do ivf till the last of our embryos run out - physically and mentally I won't be able to cope much longer. We will just accept fate

Regarding pgd .. I really don't know what is right or wrong ... AtleAst from my experience... Never thought that the next step lynn would try is with our blasts which came out as inconclusive result .. Then I guess we all take that risk and lynn said that the previous miscarriages that we had with mivf were with day 2 embies and many are abnormal at that stage... Sometimes I think may be pgd weakened my embryos and that's why the normal ones didn't stick as I didnt have implantation problems even with the abnormal ones... Mind is tired by doing a lot of thinking and guess work..
Even we are thinking not do do pgd if we need to do another stimulated cycle.. And just pray for the best like everyone else. I wasted the whole year doing pgd/ waiting for results/ scratch and Fet etc and then with 2 normal embies ones expectations go a little bit higher too.. And accepting a bfn without any reason becomes even harder. I ask myself about choosing from one... Either spending time and money on pgd and then also not 100 percent surety ... Or transferring blasts without pgd and hoping for the best .. And in my mind being prepared ( I know it's very hard .. U can never do it ) ..that if its a BFP.. The pregnancy might not work and there could be a miscarriage.....but I guess then that fear is with everyone and even pgd can't get us away from this fear ..,the only reason why we were doing pgd was that at the week 12 test or the harmony test, it's lesser stress if you get a BFP with a biopsied normal emby...but as u said .. Fate plays a big role in all these things... The only positive thing that I can see from all my ivf journey this year is that AtleAst we can produce normal embryos...( may be if it's only on paper ).....which proves our fs at mivf wrong who said that it's very highly unlikely that you will get normal embies to transfer....
How many frozen embies do u have? Has Lynn suggested a double transfer or a single transfer for you? We have 2 and she is suggesting a double transfer but I am not sure yet.. Have never tried with 2...
We are taking a break too in December.... As too tired of treatments. We are off to Bali for a few days. Will try to relax and start afresh in the new year. .
Good luck to you...

In regards to double transferred I wasted nearly 18 months playing it safe and transferring 1 at a time. I did doubles all year and got many bfn for doubles and this one was a BFP with only 1. Your chance of twins after multiple failed transfers is very low. I say go for double.
