    You're more than welcome Luv Your DP is right...you don't have to rush into anything. Your emby will stay on ice until you both decide what the best course of action is to take. You'll have time to seek further opinions from other FS's who deal with these issues or from a RI like Dr M if that's what you want to do which might help clarify things for you and your DP so you can know which direction you want to go in

    Anyhoo...enjoy your family dinner Luv!!

    @Fudge09 oh no, I am so sorry I don't know what to say, you have been through too much heartache. So unfair of the universe to put you through more.

    Xx

    Fudge... so sorry to hear that. So close but really so far. Just nothing can make the pain go away, but all I can say is just keep trying, change things up a bit, try new or different things and keep moving forward. I never really believed that I would ever see a bub in my arms, and here she is. I've had a number of crying melt-downs since she was born, as I just can't believe that she's really here and ours forever. I'm hoping the pain of three long, expensive, stressful years of IVF will eventually fade away and I can lead a normal life. But then again, that's what has made J extra extra special.

We used the argument that we ideally wanted more than one child and with only one PGD normal embie this statistically only gave us a 40% chance of a pregnancy anyway, and if we had've fallen pregnant from that then my eggs would have been a year older to try for #2 anyway. But the FS did say they would only allow the one additional cycle then we needed to use up the frosties before we could do another stim cycle. When we changed clinics this last week, the new clinic told us we would need to use up the frosties at clinic one before we could cycle there as there were government guidelines that did not allow embie banking unless you had a good reason (ie cancer etc) as it raised moral questions down the road. Having said that, when we probed a bit deeper, new clinic said we could maybe leave one or maybe two in the freezer at clinic one and that would probably be ok. Hope that helps.
    Hi gals, I've heard this a few times now and I am genuinely curious, what is the moral problem with embryo banking?

    @Bongley I'm not sure as I've never been told it, but assuming it's because you have to decide what to do with viable embryo's at the end once you have your family.

    Some could view discarding embryo's the same way as a termination, hence the moral dilemma.

    Got a reply from Dr W at Cape Town over the weekend (!) but its not the reply I was hoping for... I asked if the intralipids 'REALLY' do help or its just theoretical and only 'MAY' help and couldn't I just take the prednisolone and he says:
    "the action of prednisolone and intralipids are very different. Prednisolone suppresses the formation of antibodies and intralipids are supposed to mop up existing antibodies so it is logical to use them in combination."
    What a pain considering how difficult it is going to be to organise. I'm going to talk to my FS and see if I can get blood tests for the next couple of weeks and see if the high dose fish oil makes a dent in the high ANA and if not I guess I need to pursue the intralipids.
    Next question, who is this Wazza ?

    FWIW my highly respected FS (Lynn Burmeister) doesn't prescribe intralipids to any of her paitents, but will support with the prednisolone/clexane/antibiotic route instead. I asked about it for my first SA cycle.
