@PrinceBsMumma I reckon it's pretty natural to be nervous about the unknown. The staff will look after you though - they have taken so many women through the process they know how to put you at ease. Going for EPU is actually my favourite part of IVF as crazy as that sounds! There are no more needles to do, it's kind of exciting to be at the next stage, and I think drifting off to sleep feels lovely There are so many low points in this journey, I'll take whatever positives I can get!

Once you get into the swing of the process, as weird as it sounds, it does just become part of your daily routine.
I was also really nervous about EPU my first cycle, as it was the first time I had ever been under general anaesthetic - but can I tell you, it was the best sleep I've ever had! everyone guides you through and will take care of you, so you are in great hands.
I think we all have our hurdles and fears, but the great thing about IVF is that you have no choice but to over come them - and you will - and at the end of the day you can feel proud of your strength to get through.
I wish you all the best!

On a separate note, have any of you ladies been tested for high level NK cells or matching DQ alpha genes?

Ladies can I please join? A bit of history
TTC for almost 3 years now
Trying naturally for a long time before doing some tests. MFI. I apparently have no issue.
Stim cycle #1 sep 2013 - bfn
FET cycle dec2013 - cancelled, embryo didn't thaw
Miracle pregnancy dec 2013 - the cycle where my FET was cancelled I got pregnant naturally. Couldn't believe my luck but unfortunately mmc in feb. No HB at 12 week scan. No bleeding. No cramping. Nothing.
Been on acupuncture and tcm for the last 6 months trying to repair my body and hope for another miracle.
Stim cycle #2 nov 2014 - 13 eggs, 8 matured and fertilised. 4 day 5 embryos. One transferred - bfn. 3 frosties
Here I am now. 4dp5dt and I got my af. Way too early right? I can't believe it but it happened with my first stim cycle too. Last time it was 7dp3dt. It's so weird. When I'm not stimming, I have normal 14 days luteal phase. I know cos I've been tracking my bbt for 4 months. It's when I take ivf drugs and my LP becomes so short.
I'm ready to go in dec for a FET but given its Xmas holiday and my ovulation will be around Xmas time, thought its best to have a FET in jan.
Can I join please?
Hoping 2015 is our year. I'm so sick of this! X

Welcome @Gelati and @Minib.
Hope next year is the year for you both.
@Minib so sorry to see you back here - we've cycled together before and while it is nice to see a familiar face, it always makes my heart sink when it happens. Such a tough road, but I hope next year brings us both what we've been chasing for so long! xx

mind if I join in? I will be going through it all again in Jan/Feb. I had an EPU this June, one fresh transfer (CP) and two frosties (both m/c ed at 7 weeks). Just had the last m/c a couple of weeks ago.
FS has suggested we go for PGD next time around. Has anyone else done this?
In the meantime, looking forward to a big Christmas holiday!
Here's to 2015 for all of us!
