@Heyside oh no the pred is awful. I haven't been on it myself but see what it does to the kids I work with. Many also end up with 'roid rage' as we call it. Hopefully you'll fee better soon. But I think Ivf makes your generally snappy and in a fowl mood. I noticed the same last year. Poor DP. It's just so emotionally draining.
With the embies id say test them. But it's a hard decision. It'll give you a break in the meantime and who knows might save you another full stim cycle as some might be fine. Good luck with whatever you decide 🙂

Heyside I'm so sorry to hear your BT result and the fact you have to appreciate that it won't drag out
After others advice on here, I would probably test your embies but it's something for you to research and discuss with FS. I just hope you finally get some much deserved luck soon xoxo
Keiko your post had me in tears! You are pregnant!! Us girls know the feeling of thinking we may never hear that, and when you do it's just amazing! I know how you feel regards funds. We are going public and everything has been great so far. The fewer scans are a shame but you only medically need those couple - and then you could just pay for 3d ones for excitement and peace of mind seeing as how much you'd pay for an OB anyway. I expect to be having another scan soon due to bub possibly not being in the right position for birth. But it might be nice to have the fuss of a private OB being your first bub. I have an amazing GP so I don't feel like I'm missing anything, plus I have an idea of what to expect after having DS10 and DD8. And the new Gold Coast hospital is all private rooms and your partner can stay! With all the debt Ivf brought us it was the only option for us. But I'm sure you'll make the right decision for you x
We need a catch up soon ladies! Max Brenner sounds so appealing right now! 😜 x
Tinachris so sorry you too are having a hard time and more waiting. If there was one thing IVF should have taught me - it was patience! But I'm still the least patient person in the world. May some positive news come your way soon x

@Tinachris - I was warned about the side effects of the prednisone being the increased appetite so was prepared for that but this anxiety has really shocked me, will find out if is is the prednisone soon as I drop down to 1/4 dose tomorrow. Thanks for the naturopath info hun, glad its helping you. Just had a friend talking to me about acupuncture this morning, have tried that once before but not sure if I should give it a go again?
@Keiko2012 - Thanks for the info on the pred, at least its reasurring its not all been in my head. Have you decided how you will share your news this weekend hun?
@StillHopeful - Thanks hun yes its awful when we have to find a positive in a negative result.
We have made a decision last night to test our remaining embryos and think about a fresh cycle further down the line if we need it. So will have a few nail biting weeks as we wait for results but at least we will know where we stand.

Good luck @Heyside. I am praying for some good results of your embies. Do you know how long it will take? Does it still take a month or do QFG have the quick turnover? I know one clinic it only takes a few days but I can't remember which? Very daunting process for sure.
Yes the announcement is all in plan... I'm not sure how I feel about it still. I'm not as excited as DP as I'm still terrified it'll end badly. Since Easter is coming up we decided to blow out eggs, spray paint them gold ( the golden egg which I guess is true!) and put a tiny copy of our scan in it. Then get them to crack the egg. Well I haven't done anything- it's all on DP! He's just so so excited. I'm more apprehensive about it all. It still doesn't feel real!

Keiko2012 I love that announcement you have planned, lots of thought gone into that. Enjoy the moment if you can understand you being apprehensive though unfortunately i spent my whole pregnancy like that with DD after infertility, best to take one step at a time.
I was expecting the results of testing to take around 5 weeks but the nurse yesterday says in depends on how busy they are they have been coming back in 3-4 weeks recently so who knows.

@Heyside I don't do acupuncture cause I don't think it works lol!! Mind you there's lots of other alternative stuff that I think does lol!! What's the worst you get out if it - I'm sure you'd be super relaxed after a treatment. I just don't believe it works..says the chick who takes flower essences lol😂
