    I don't think the field is evolving as quickly as other parts of medicine and that's what I find very frustrating. In the same period of time, HIV/AIDS has gone from being a life sentence to something almost curable. How far have we really come with ART?

    And until women lobby for it, it's not going to change.

    Well despite me saying that the FRERs are consistent they are fluctuating slightly, presumably on concentration of wee. So now it is slightly darker but I held onto my wee for like 6 hours and it was very orange, sorry TMI


    Hope everyone is staying cool.

    Thanks for listening to my craziness.



    Ah, sunshine pee. Yes, familiar with that! Fingers crossed this is the start of something @Bongley! The next few days will be make or break. I am really hoping when I log on tomorrow you will be here saying "OMG! Look at this line!"

    I have decided, should I be so lucky as to be able to retrieve and fertilise any eggs this time round, that I will not be PGD testing.

    I know it's potentially wasting money implanting embies that may not make it, but I can't bare the thought of not giving each one a chance, or of losing embies along the way.

    Is that weird? I'd just rather go through the last cycle with no 'what if's.' It's only money, right?

    Yes me too. Although I don't think I will have anything one way or the other until Tuesday at this rate.

    Thanks for this info BIB. Interestingly the non-implanting normal from this last failed cycle was hatched at just on day 5 (probably end of day 4 actually) so it was ahead, whilst the normal cavitating morula that we have frozen is more on target (when I'd been thinking it was behind). Fingers crossed it thaws okay and keeps growing. It's a bugger the PGD wasn't back as it would have been transferred too . At least we hopefully have a backup and there are more normals in there!

    @Blossom is there a risk that if 2 implant and only one is normal, then the non-normal could put the healthy fetus at risk? Plus the potential trauma of downs etc. My other fear is that a miscarriage takes months away from trying again, although if this really is your last cycle then that doesn't apply... Then the cost of PGD testing (at QFG at least) is actually not much shy of the out-of-pocket for a stim cycle. It's a hard decision.
