So on CD1 I start on estrogen (to stop ovulation) then roughly around the day I would have ovulated they start me on progesterone then transfer 3 days later for a 3 day embie. They scan me through the cycle to make sure I HAVENT o'd and if I did, they would cancel. Very strict.

Yes Leyshoja, they sound very strict. My clinic are against multiples as well and only allow single embie transfers. They do advise against bd when on stims.
You have a great chance with this next one so fingers crossed for you. At this stage I'd take twins over none at all so I am going to bd before O. Previous FET's I have abstained but there's a good chance this one will be postponed because of our holiday so the bd is our back up plan. Don't want to waste a month.

Yeah, that gets me too. People say 'oh well look at Halle Berry/Sonia Kruger, its still possible'. It certainly does give the wrong impression. @MGC Bertie the thing that worries me the most with the donor egg is that all my close family know and while its all very interesting to them and they are all incredibly excited for me, I can see the conversation coming up over and over again in the future (assuming I'm successful) about looks and personality and doesnt he/she look like daddy and someone slipping when a child is old enough to question why somebody would make those comments. I would hate for them to find out that way. I've got one niece in particular 22yo who loves to discuss it at the top of her voice at family (and friends) events, restaurants etc about how my eggs were too old etc. I've since had to tell her mother, my sister, to tell her to not keep asking me about it anymore. I'll probably clarify that in future and ask her to not talk about it to all and sundry. I really regret having so many people know.

Yes Halle Berry and collette dinningan, who also had Ivf treatment then mysteriously got pregnant naturally at 47.
Although I have just met a lovely lady whose daughter was created with her sisters egg. I knew her before and didn't guess it nor think her any different. She then fell pregnant when her daughter was one naturally at 42. Who'd have thunk it.
AFM all systems go. Doctor says ready to do transfer and my chances of miscarrying are lower than staying pregnant. Meaning if I get pregnant again I should stay pregnant. He also says they only freeze good embryos so not any less likely to get pregnant. Fx fx. Argh, getting battle ready, and telling hubby not to go away when I transfer.

Yes, I just usually say that no woman has achieved a pregnancy over the age of 45 using her own eggs with IVF in australia if people tell me I still have plenty of time. I read that somewhere once, in my many days of trawling the web for info. (I think its still true?) Anyway, that usually shuts people up.
I am very open about doing IVF but if I was to use a donor I don't know how open I would be. I don't think I would want people to know before my own child had a proper understanding of what it meant. So I think I would tell very, very close friends and family and say, its not a dark secret but keep it to yourselves! I'm not sure I would tell my mother at all, she has dementia and is quite seriously mentally ill with other issues. Think it might just confuse the hell out of her.
good luck everyone
@butterfly great result girl!
@leyshoja I'm getting impatient for your next transfer! Come on! I am a lifetime 5 weeks away from next EPU. Ugh.
@mgcbertie SO, so glad everything is going well for you I know with my pregnancy it wasn't a thunderstruck feeling but a gradual dawning. Finding out the sex was a big wonderful milestone. Gosh, I hope you all get to experience that.
@MrsErinR congrats, of course I remember too!
Also can you lot stop talking about burgers!! I am on a major health kick to lose a few kilos and its killing me. God I love junk food.

.......Subbing.....Good luck Lovelies!!!
I'm battening down the hatches personally until this "rain event" passes Today they're predicting 30-100mls for us here in Brissy. It's getting darker and more windy as the day progresses with intermittent showers thus far, but it's only a matter of time

@MGC Bertie hope you're feeling better, rest rest rest
@Bongley yes it's an interesting thing the old donor egg business. My dear Aunt who was a gynaecologist at that time gave birth to a donor egg Ivf bubby at the tender age of 50! She was a gorgeous girl who really enriched my aunt and uncles lives but was tragically cut short when she hit a pole in Bondi on her 21st bday, poor darling, and was killed. I know they would have done it all over again though.

@Butterfly39 Yep..that's a wise choice you've made Luv I'm thinking. They're already talking about flights being delayed/cancelled in the lead up to the onslaught we're going to cop. They're still tipping it to be a Cat 2 when it crosses anywhere between St Lawrence and Bundy early tomorrow morn (some reports say 5am, some 7am..so I'll say between 5-7am lol) but are guesstimating north of Yepoon. Hope your DH will be ok?? No doubt they'll evacuate him if they're really concerned.
I'll bet he didn't sleep through Yasi!! My brother in law and his wife live in Tully and I know how badly they copped it. I was that worried about them I didn't even sleep that night myself!! My DP on the otherhand was snoring like a chainsaw and it's his own bloody brother!!! LOFL!!
P.S. For some reason the emoticons aren't working when I click on them?? WTF?
