    I remember when my lead follicle was only growing by .5mm per day, if that, LB wouldn't increase my FSH dose either. On the First cycle I did as I was told. On the second cycle I upped it without LBs knowledge. I seem to recall BiB encouraging from the sidelines. Not that for one minute am I suggesting you do that. You've got too much riding on that one follicle and you're sooooo close. Big hugs.
    @Tahli yes, I'm not sure if its the follicle size or the estrogen levels or both. I have already sneaked a few extra units in here and there but it must be looking ok for them not have increased the dose so I'll just have to grin and bear it.

    Glad you got there OK! Get those littlies into you and come on home for a POAS marathon before xmas.
    I'll be a week behind you now at least

    @Tahli What a frucking ordeal to get there Luv by the sounds of it!!😦

    You're there now in one piece which is the main thing & maybe it's fate that you've come back around full circle to be in the same room/bed that you were when it all began!!😊

    I'm taking it as a good omen & a positive sign of things to come (i.e a BFFP!!!) πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

    We're all here with you/for you now Luv as well & are collectively cheering you on from the sidelines😊 We're with you all the way Girl!!😊

    Enjoy that massage!! Clear your mind of all stress/worry as you feel the tension being released from your muscles. Let your mind go blank & allow yourself to just "be" in that moment immersing yourself in those heavenly sensations that a good massage brings!!πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘xoxo

    "HURRY UP!!" Follicle FFS's!!πŸ˜‰πŸ˜

    The silver lining here Luv is that your Cycle hasn't been cancelled & though your follicle is as slow as an old mole getting to the size it needs to, it is thankfully still heading in the right direction!!😁

    You will get there Luv😊

    @Lolly99 are you still holding out til Tuesday before testing? If so, you've got more resolve than all of us combined!
    The largest delay was down to a "mechanic problem". 3 hrs later I overheard staff saying one of the technicians miscalculated something rather than there actually being something literally wrong with the plane.
    I might see if it's possible to go down to Simons Town to see the penguins this afernoon. It's just getting around safely on my own that I find abit tricky. Failing that, I might jump on the red open top bus and go for a super touristy ride. I've not had the time to play a tourist on my two other trips. Gosh I'd love to do a day safari!
    @winsor you just made tears roll down my cheeks. Kindness does that to me!! This is a bl~~dy lonely path to travel on your own.
    Thanks @Sue77. I'm praying like almighty that I can follow in @JulieMalooleys footsteps. @Bongley well done on sneaking a few more units in! If alls looking good for you on Tuesday does that mean they'll transfer on Tuesday? Your precious embie is a day 5 isn't she/he? If so, our day 5 transfers would only be hours apart. We can be neurotic Stick Wh~res together!!

    Hang in there @Bongley and good luck for Tuesday. @Tahli how's CT? Hope you made it ok, we left Johanesberg yesterday just as big storm was coming, we were sitting on the runway looking at lightning in the distance! We were also delayed so maybe that had an effect on all flights going in and out.
    Hope your embies are snuggling in for the long haul Luv!!πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

    Fingers crossed/babydust & prayers being sent the Universe's way for you!!😊

    @Tahli no I have not tested! I'm dying to do a pee stick, however I am too jet legged too go to shops. Feel like a zombie. Am also scared. Think I'm feeling crampy
    the penguins are so cute I loved them! we went there on Wednesday but the road to get there is all dug up and traffic was kind of brutal. The hop on is nice too I think you can go on all the routes if you can fit them in, we went on the red and blue I wanted to do the purple as well on which is the wine farms nearby. You can get off at table mt and go on the cable car that was amazing and you would be safe as its all touristy. I miss it already!! Enjoy and try to do something today it will help get your mind off everything! Not really but it's a bit of distraction!

    @Lolly99 super dooper massively fingers crossed your zombie state is early pregnancy!!
    Thanks for the CT info. I was just researching as you were replying! I think the Table Mountain cable car is going to be the easiest and safest jet lagged afternoon activity for me to do on my own. If I had company I'd jump at the chance to do the cute Penguins but getting to them seems abit tricky without a hire car.
    Ahhh, I understand now @Bongley. I'm just sh~t scared I'm getting ahead of myself with the thoughts of POAS. I'm desperate to get through the thawing stage safely and get my fat Pred legs up in those stirrups for transfer!!
    Btw on 10mgs of Pred I had no increased appetite but on 25mgs I'm an eating machine...and my god have a put on a huge amount of weight this week!!

    Yeah @BlondeinBrisvegas it definitely feels like full circle all right but with my head in a much stronger experienced place. Maybe I'm back in this exact room and at this exact point in time for a good Universe type of reason.
    It also feels like I've exhausted SD1s embryos, grieved the loss of them which was so hard after fighting so desperately to access his sperm and falling pregnant with them, drawn a line as best I can and am now starting afresh with SD2s little poppets.
    Knowing how incredibly blessed I am to have access to this opportunity is not lost on me and I wish I could bring back enough embryos to share with all of the girls....and I would have done so had I not lost almost 20 of them on day 4. From the bottom of my heart, it was certainly my intention.
