    Hi gals, sorry just caught up on the posts. @Summer at first I thought, how dare he!! Then I remembered how very sick you have tbeen, so I can see his point. However I know how much strength we get from making plans and how stressful putting things on hold can be. I hope a counsellor can help you both through this next stage.

    Just got back from the Sydney festival, first time I've been in years. My partner got us tickets as a surprise. Well past my bedtime.

    Xx

    @Summer is it your DH or your doctor saying you are not well enough? I have complex health issues and my other specialists work with my FS to manage it. FS#1 wanted us to get a surrogate. IVF has been hell and I'm sick 90% of the time when I'm cycling, so lots of unpaid leave and working from home as I can - so DH has to pick up the slack at home and it's been a huge financial hit on top of IVF.

    He is petrified of losing me. He often won't make IVF decisions as he doesn't want to put pressure on my body and he doesn't want to push me to do anything which would be about his wish for a child. It took months of "discussions" for this to come out. He feels he cannot ask anything that will put stress on my body. We usually communicate very well (after 13 years of practice), but not on this topic.

    There have been times in the past where DH has thought we wouldn't be able to have kids due to my health and put off discussing it with me as he didn't want to upset me. He married me for me, not to have a child (although he has always wanted them). I on the other hand had discussed it with my doctors and knew it could be managed. We just failed to talk to each other and made assumptions with the best of intentions.

    Do do you think it might be worthwhile your seeing a psychologist to help you process what is going on for you? A lot of people see a psychologist whilst they and their partner see a relationship counsellor.

    Thinking of you.

    @BlondeinBrisvegas my last 2 cycles including my misscarriage was thru the low cost qfg spin off at Springwood they were lovely and so caring. So yes i would definitely go back there to reach threshold then go onto wazza if i do own egg. What do you think my OE chances are. Ive had 7 cycles of ivf with one chemical in cycle 4 and one misscarriage on cycle 7. Had natural pregnancy as well years ago however i do have thyroid issues and low amh of less than 2. Im 38. I know wazza would tell me but since it will be 6 months of hard core overtime before i even see him i just wanted some idea?

    I know someone said DE would be about 60% is that right @Tahli or @JulieMalooley.

    @Blossom74 new neighbors that could be exciting. Hopefully they are better than your last. ������
    Well Luv, I can tell you that the "Live Birth Rate" (i.e take home a baby from the hospital rate which is the only rate that really matters IMO..."Clinical" and "Pregnancy" rates that most Clinics put up on their websites to make themselves look better are very misleading as unfortunately as you and some of the other Lovelies know, that getting Pregnant is one thing, staying pregnant is another, hence my belief in always asking for/looking at the "Live Birth Rate" which shows your true chances IMO) for a 40 yr old at QFG a the time I got my BFFP was 11.something% with OE's. Wazza's individual rates were a little higher.

    It would be a little higher for you due to your age, but according to this article, the latest figures from the Aus/NZ Assisted Reproduction Database shows the Live Birth Rate for your age to be anywhere from 17.4%-25.5% (depending if you use a Day 3/5 embryo). Here's the link:

    http://www.crikey.com.au/2014/05/28/...can-they-last/

    So, I'd be going with those figures Luv. Your AMH only reflects that you may not have as many eggs left as other women of your age nor yield as many at EPU, not the quality of them, so hopefully a good one will pop out on your next "Oocyte Lotto" draw (EPU). You have to also remember that the sperm has to be top notch too to get a viable embryo. It's not just about your eggs on the whole

    @Lolly99 that's natures way for preparing you for when the babies come...dinner at 5pm with babies, into the bath with them because that's the only chance you get, feed them while barely holding your eyes open, then get them to sleep, and crawl into bed yourself. Enjoy the sleeping through to 8am bit while you can. Your body needs it to grow your precious little poppets. I hope you're getting to do some nice things for yourself too.

    Good morning everyone, hope you're all having a nice Sunday morning
    BlondeinBrisvegas I think you had something in your post about sperm quality and with 3 failed OE cycles and a failed DE cycle I personally think my FS needs to look more closely at that. I feel like it always " oh bad eggs" speech, I'm not taking that as an answer this week when I go back but then if he says oh maybe it is the sperm I'll be livid!!

    I was going to request a sperm defragmentation test, DP already had poor count, motility and morphology so it's probable DNA is dodgy as well.
    Does anyone have experience with this test? And if so what supplements were recommended and did they work?
    So much more information available on here than the clinics give you!!!
    😡
