    Default IVF over 40#24

    Well, she did have quite a poke about. There was a lady on one of the forums I was reading years back and they discovered a twin around week 24. I'm not kidding and she was called a liar etc but it sounded pretty genuine to me.
    Not really because we were expecting it - and DP and I are the two most unexciteable people I've ever heard of anyway. I was actually surprised when she didn't see two and then just thought 'I was right' when she found the second one. the reality still hasn't sunk in. Seems like it's going to be a very gradual process... Imagine finding out at 24 weeks ! My grandma found out at 35 weeks as I'm sure most people did back then. What a shock that'd be.

    My partner and I are both fairly unemotional too. We had lunch after the scan, gave each other a kiss and a hug then shook hands and said "Well done!"

    Cheeky! I actually think I'd stick to just the one...but lets see how this final OE cycle goes. I might get soooo fed up I say 'chuck all 3 in'!
    I've just reserved my OE sperm donor. It's so very odd to be using sperm that was frozen 22 years ago!!
    I'm going to request a follicle scan this month while I'm not cycling to see how many follicles I produced and what size they are. I'd lay money on them being the same as when I'm on hardcore IVF FSH.

    Well done just can't give it the acclaim it deserves can it? After all the time, effort, drugs, stress, emotional upheaval and physical trauma to our bodies it's actually a massive accomplishment that is hard to put a label on. But well done @Bongley! Persistence is our friend in this crappy game. @Tahli, I wonder if they ever transfer 3......, 😉

    Did you breathe a big sigh of relief when there was only one - or were you secretly a little disappointed ?

    I know one of the CT girls transferred 3 quite recently but the embryos hadn't thawed well, I believe, hence having the final 3 transferred all at once.
    Re singleton/twins...I think it's possible to do both....sigh relief but secretly still be a little bit disappointed. I'd be in that camp.
    @Precious40 I'm thinking of you and your results this arvo.

    @JulieMalooley Big sigh of relief. I'd like to think we could go O/S with two kids, with three........ I would really like to visit my folks in the UK in the next few years as they are both quite ill. If we had twins then that wouldn't have been possible......... I don't have any family over here so any support/relief is babysitters and childcare and we just haven't got that much moolar. If I was Brangelina then I'd have 6 kids too (and 6 nannies)

    Gad dammit! I just missed a call from my clinic, and when I rang back the girl I needed to talk to had gone to lunch.

    Her message was along the lines of "I'm just ringing to discuss the results of our application for a discounted cycle for you...."

    Sh!tting bricks right about now. Anything is better than nothing. Nothing would be pretty catastrophic.

    Wish me luck.
