    @Tahli it sounds like you have lots of options still but that's what makes it so hard right?!? Sometimes you wish that someone could just tell you which option would yield the best result. Ivf is not that simple god damned it. When the savings are dwindling I would take the option that gives the most second chances. The fs always says to me it's a numbers game which I hold my hope on. Fingers crossed all of this is irrelevant as you have a late implanter x

    A numbers game hey @Caesardust?! That brings me to the option I didn't dare type but was thinking about lastnight...thaw all 3 embryos and transfer them all!! Yep, the frustration is completely and utterly getting to me!!!!!
    @Blossom I hope you're ok Hun. You're awfully quiet. xx

Like @Bongley 12dpo is my psychological turning point. Only 2 days to go.
    I found myself awake for hours lastnight thinking about what to do next. I'll keep testing through til Thursday 14dpo, then go for the 'It's all over Red Rover' blood test on Thursday afternoon while my son is at DC, get the results on Friday and come off the meds.
    I have 3 frozen embryos left in CT and have found myself running through all the different scenarios about what to do next...ranging from leaving them and trying with a new egg donor, to thawing 2, to thawing 3 and seeing which 2 are the best, to giving up because after transferring 5 donor embryos I still don't have an ongoing pregnancy.
    My next window of opportunity for a CT trip is 26th Jan which fits in cycle wise but most importantly my ex has asked if he can take my son away for the Oz Day long w.end. It would mean using the very last of my savings. Food for thought.
    Ahhh @Tahli, you sound exactly like me - planning the next step before the current one is even over. It helps though to have plan b,c,d,or e in place, well in advance. It's a great coping mechanism I believe. I think this is your one though so I'll be stalking !

    @faithandhopellove did you see the risk factor before they adjusted for your age? Also, did you find out what the nuchal fold thickness was? My fingers are crossed for you..

    Maxwellmum sorry to hear abt the death in your family .. I know it can be hard talking abt the baby stuff with extended family.

    Faithshopeandlove I really pray it's just calculating after adjusting the maternal age n all is well with your future teats.

    Tahli fingers crossed love u see a squinted tonight or tomorrow morning. . Yes .. exploring options is also very hard but as JM said.. it is a coping mechanism

    Midnite 01 .. yes even I have those thoughts many times when I just get sick of everything and just want to stop. .. All of us have gone through so much .. it's hard not to be forced to think that way sometimes.

    Caseardust. . Yes monash is bloody expensive. .. April is not too far love ...

    When is your transfer Bongley?

    AM

    Thanks Gagingi and Blondeinbrisvegas for the useful tips abt ohss. I got gaviscon and all other stuff that you said .. and having lots n lots of water...and it has definitely helped. ..... it's not too of bad that I need to go to hospital.. but my tummy is seriously bloated .. just hoping this embi sticks as I am feeling too tired of this journey..

    Thanks everyone for your support. The scan for both twins was borderline but the Dr said given the timing of the scan borderline was ok. The high risk part was my age and the blood test. The blood test was abysmal. One part came in at just 10% of what it should be. Three things ars keeping me going: Firstly the scan alone didn't indicate high risk. Secondly a friend of mine had a crappy blood test for her nuchal and her bub was fine. Finally we had so many bad embies that never made it and these ones did. I feel like that's a good indication that they are ok.

    Hello lovelies!

    @Tahli, thank you for thinking about me. I'm just fine, hubby and I just had a huge weekend!

    Dinner is about to come out of the oven, but I'll pop back and post later this evening. I have at least read through everyone's posts and have a small list of notes

    Hugs to all, I'll be back soon

    Dinner done and dusted - roast chicken with coleslaw and home made potato salad - YUM

    @Gagingi - Congrats on being PUPO and also on the frozen emby! What a wonderful position to be in, you must be thrilled.

    @ Bongley - thank you so much for taking the time (and I bet it took AGES) to put together Roll Call. What a fab job you did

    @Grace0908 - welcome to the group. Wishing you all the best on your journey.

    @Sue77 - Sorry you got caught up in the OHSS and had to go back to hospital. Hope you are feeling better now hon.

    @Caesardust - My sincere condolences love, it's always sad to lose someone close. Hugs to you

    @faithandhopellove - You must have been so worried to get those results. I think the other girls are quite right though - at 'our age' the odds are automatically put against us even if everything else looks fine. I also agree with you when you said that these two embies are obviously strong - they took hold when others previoulsy did not. I reckon you can be fairly confident in moving forward, and I hope the NIPT brings clearer results for you

    @Maxwellsmum - I'm so sorry love, what a shock you must have had. I had my D&C in October at 8w2d after my scan showed an empty sac. Subsequent testing did identify what the Doctors kindly refer to as 'products of conception' - ie: My Baby. The loss is just so heartbreaking and I really feel for you. I had hoped to MC naturally myself but in the end I was told my body was encapsulating my baby - I didn't want to let the baby go. A D&C was the fastest way forward and it was over quickly and relatively painlessly - physically, at least. Big hugs to you hon, I'm just so sorry

    @Tahli - Things could still turn around for you hon, I have everything crossed for you and am sending baby dust your way. Gosh I hope tomorrow brings better news - we need some good strong BFP's around here girls.

    Hello to everyone else of course, and I'm sorry for neglecting you all. DH and I had a night away in a crappy motel so we could attend his work's Christmas party. It was a reasonably good meal and a nice night away.

    When we got home I got a bee in my bonnet about getting some pet budgies, and couldn't let it go. Bob and Birdie are now the newest additions to our family! They are so sweet - singing all day and they are in love! They kiss all the time, it's so sweet to watch. Combined with all that we did a few things around the house so were busy all weekend. All good though

    Blossom
