    @Tahli I'd be really interested to know how you'd go with an IUI given that you've had a natural pregnancy and baby. The fact that its non invasive when it comes to your eggs I would think could only be a good thing. Maybe you could go on a "holiday" to somewhere outside of Vic and try one through a low cost clinic?

    Ive had 2 FS's tell me they think we should move on to DE. Ive had that sunken feeling to hear that but honestly my response in my head was that they've been wrong the whole time through this so what makes that response any more right. The honest answer is that nobody knows what will happen, they base their responses on statistics. And I've also had that experience where they change their mind the next appointment about something which I think is more a case of them forgetting what they said the last time. Yes I know the reality is they are probably right, we are all aware the chances are low, however we are going for one more go so that I can be satisfied that we have done what we want to do and have not been swayed to stop by someone so that I will regret it later. It took me a while to get to that point but now I realise this is my life not theirs and Im the one that has everything to lose if I don't follow my gut.

    Not deterred at all @Tahli I reckon @BIB's right. Why not try stimming and just seeing what's on offer? You never know, you might get a pleasant surprise. That's what I'm doing ATM, seeing what (if anything) crops up and proceeding from there. Wether that be to EPU or onto another month of stims only time will tell.

    I also wanted to ask everyone's opinion on something. As you know, this is our last shot at the big time. I was talking to DH last night and raised the issue of "If we get to the end with no result, how would you feel about advertising for a sperm donor in our area" and going the self-insemination route.

    Is this an option, do you think?

    Obviously there are certain conditions I would be wanting met - Full STD checks, contracts drawn up removing any of the donor's rights to parent/see the child etc.

    Is it legal to advertise for a sperm donor? Does anyone know how/where you might go about doing that?

    It's a small window of opportunity that otherwise would remain closed to us - natural conception. But maybe worth a shot, so to speak?


    ETA: DH said "We'll see when we get there" which basically means I could talk him into it if I had to!

    Thanks for suggesting a second opinion on my OEs girls. If I was going to seek one it would be with Wazza. But if I'm honest, I don't think I've got the energy for it.
    My absolute inner fear, is if my CT FS says to stop after I've used my last 3 frozen embryos. I'll fall to pieces if that happens.
    I'm interested to get my AMH result in a week or so. 9 months ago it was 3.8.
    So now it's on to re-booking CT. Thankfully I didn't cancel my flights. Hopefully my FS there is still ok with me progressing even though we didn't have my tubes checked for hydrosalpinges. LB saw bubbles yest which she said indicated my tubes were open. @BlondeinBrisvegas I need to draw up a list between LB's 'natural' meds suggestions and Dr M's more medicated option so I can make a decision on that front.
    (Apologies I'm rambling. I'm still woozey from the GE. I didn't get home til 9pm.)

    Wow @Tahli what alot to process and on your own. You are amazing with alot of strength and resilience. Your inspirational. Have you tried putting all your options and outcomes together on a board. Then see which one your drawn to? It sounds bizarre but like @Blossom said gut instinct helps to give clarity on what your heart desires. Thats my 2 cents worth. I know you will make the best decision.

    @Blossom i know its a loaded question but im going to keep asking as with the pressure of last cycle im sure you are on the roller coaster of your life atm. I think DS is a great idea if dh is ok with it. I would call that a plan B. Great thinking. 😀

    @Gangini thanks for the video tip i will have a look today. Also yes chemist is a good idea. Next time i go in i will ask about drug interactions. 😀

    @Blossom74 its not a crazy idea out all. A gf did that in nsw advertised and he responded hes already got a family. He was tested and provided proof of recent bloods and hiv status. They had an agmt for him to provide the goods certain times a month for so many minths. He comes over and she does the deed. She has one ds and one on the way. I reckon give it a go if you need to.

    Thank you love It really is stressful, especially when I look at our finances and assets - there is no last minute 'let's sell something and try again' with us as there is simply nothing left to sell!

    The DS route is sort of a 'last chance at the rodeo' scenario for us. You know, if all else fails... I have no doubt that my local OB/GP would supply Clexane and Prednisolone if I asked for it, so potentially DS could work. There has been nothing revealed in my tests (other than old age, lol) that should prevent me from falling pregnant, so I figure....maybe and option?

    Interesting. Did she use a lawyer to do up the agreement. I think I would follow that path to ensure it was iron-clad and worked in my favour.
