    hi @SMJ it's about as rollercoastery as it can get, besides the actual thing

    Really sorry to hear you didn't get any frozen embryos. I never used to get any either. After a few cycles I got used to the phone call telling me there weren't any as my expectations had dropped, so in that respect it did get easier.

    Those ones that didn't make it are no reflection of the one on board, it's the best of the bunch and that's what we're all aiming to transfer. The best one. How was it looking on day 5 when it was transferred? My BFP was an early grade 2 blastocyst so nothing to write home about

    Good luck and hope you get through the next few weeks ok. Will you POAS?

    Hi @SMJ and welcome to the roller coaster love! Yep, the IVF journey is full of ups and downs (sadly, probably more downs than ups at our age) but whilst we may have no money left and no sanity, we all still have hope and that's what's most important

    I'm very sorry to hear about the lack of frosties for you this cycle. I only had one myself last cycle, and whilst I did get my BFP, sadly I lost the pregnancy. There is not a woman on here who wouldn't understand what you're feeling love. There's also not a woman on here who wouldn't like that cake recipe either, so please do feel free to post it

    Right now you are PUPO - congratulations! And as the others have said, your little emby, all snuggled in, was the best of the bunch. Remember love, you only need one to make a baby. Let's hope this is the one for you hey. the next two weeks go quickly for you. We all know the torture of the 2WW!

    Good luck love,


    Blossom

    Well, the Christmas cakes are in the oven! they both turn out ok. I was planning giving one to Mum and Dad so I'm hoping they both come out looking beautiful.

    I almost forgot! I have my FS appointment today at 4pm! I'm off to write up a list of questions so I can be prepared....

    @Blossom74 good luck with your cakes although I suspect you dont need it as you seem to be quite the chef i think. I really hope you get to have an informative fs appointment today that leads to your take home baby. Xx

    Welcome @SMJ. I hope the one you have in board is the one for you.

    All the best for this afternoon @Blossom74. I hope you walk out with a bit of hope and can get financial assistance.

    None of our excess embryo's were ever of a good enough quality to freeze either & God it used to pi$$ me off & upset me!!

    Felt like such a waste of potential BFP's not to mention knowing we'd have to go through it all over again & find the $ from somewhere if the Cycle was a bust๐Ÿ˜

    Agree with @Bongley that the one you have on board isn't necessarily a dud just because the others weren't suitable to be frozen. Nor does it mean your excess embryo's were all crap either just because they couldn't be frozen. It just means they weren't of a high enough quality to survive the freezing and/or thawing process.

    The 2WTorture is hell Luv but I'm crossing everything, sending lots of babydust & a prayer the Universe's way that you're heading for a BFFP!!!๐Ÿ˜Š

    What day are you now?? Please do feel free to post that cake recipe as well!! Sounds divine!!๐Ÿ˜Š

    It does annoy me though when some ivf virgins are moaning about only getting 15 eggs or so and only 3-4 blasts for the freezer. That would be an amazing cycle in my books.

    Yep - even getting to EPU with the possibility of two eggs would have been a bonus for me :-( No. EPU. Ever.

    Yup. They just don't realise how hard it gets later on.

    AFM, I've done up my list and thought it might be handy to put together a little backstory so if he asks me about previous cycles I have an answer for him.

    That meant trawling back through Blossom's box for my diary and test results, so as you can probably imagine I've been in tears for the last hour.

    Honestly, I don't know how I'm even going to hold myself together for this interview, let alone ask the appropriate questions. Every time I think about the last cycle I lose my shiz. It doesn't get any easier. Everyone said it would get easier, but it doesn't. You just manage to hide the pain some days better than others.

    Today is not one of those days
