    @midnite01 the flights were horrible, all late, exceptionally stressful, qantas don't leave enough time to transfer between flights (just over an hour) leaving you to power walk/skippy run to get to the next terminal/flight. On one occasion I started cramping and had to sit down. My god did I feel guilty.
    Because it was 30c plus on the way back I didn't wear compression stockings and my feet and ankles blew up like a pufferfish. When I noticed all I could think about was DVT. I 'slept' with my feet elevated lastnight and it's helped abit. Anyway, there's not much I can do about it now.
    Before my transfer I asked Dr W how the 2 blasts were looking and he said "good. I'm happy to transfer them" and I said "good?" and he said "ok then, very good". And gave me a look to say, whatever you need to believe that helps you.
    Immediately post transfer he confirmed he doesn't believe in immune issues and there isn't anything that kills off embryos. Also that beside the Progynova for 10 days and Viagra for 3 there isn't anything else that can boost your lining. I asked what would happen if my lining stayed thin and he said the embryos just wouldn't stay implanted. And here's the kicker. He finished that sentiment with "we can only help 90% of woman and the other 10%"...he shrugged his shoulders. So I'm in the 10% of women with thin lining that he can't help.
    Its more than a tad hard to shake his comments.

    @Tahli you poor thing. Flights sounds very stressful and Dr W awful. Has he heard of empathy?!? Do you have an FS here who is a bit more supportive?

    @Blossom74 At least I admit my crazy! I'm surprised you didn't hear the opening of my FRER packet!! I like having this early optimism that the grey shadow line that always comes up on them might turn into something at some point.

    I think so.

    @Tahli Well, there are a lot of doctors that DO believe in immune issues so *shrug* screw him frankly. I always thought that NK cells was some problem that you caught or was wrong with you but the more I read about it it is a natural condition (the clue is in the name! ) , that just so happens to stop women having so many babies, so if you lower it, you get preggers more easily. Makes sense to me, I guess that's why it is hard to pinpoint it if it's just a natural immune system working. 100 years ago we would have been grateful for not popping out 11 sprogs, now it's not terribly helpful. Damn you evolution for not keeping up with the times.

    Your lining sounded good, I was told a minimum of 6mm and you had that easily

    Those flights sounded horrendous!! Get some rest and I hope the next week or two flies by. When are you back at work?

    @midnite01 - correct and I agree. 20%of eggs at 42 are supposed to be normal apparently but so far I haven't seen my 20%. They must be hiding.

    How many of u ladies believe in acupuncture pre and post emb transfer ?
    I have done it 4 times with my Fet s with LB... All bfn.. don't know if there's any use or not ?

    Good Luck today Luv!!!!!

    and prayers being sent for a lovely Blasty waiting for you to transfer and at least 3 or more to be sent away for biopsy too!!!!

    Yeah...the Pregnyl booster shots make it hard to POAS though you'd get a pretty good idea a day or 2 before BT!!!

    I've never done acupuncture myself Luv (Wazza never rated it either but was happy if you wanted to try it or do it for relaxation purposes) but I don't see any harm giving it a go. I was going to if we'd had to do another Cycle.
