    @winsor - glad you found a fitting memorial. When my daughter died my sister bought me an olive tee from a company called growing gifts. It's planted in the garden and still going strong 7 years later.

    @greenlady I hadn't heard of IMSI, but (from googling) it seems like it's just higher magnification and therefore is still very subjective? Personally we've found much better results with PICSI/HA-ICSI. We get a higher fert rate and also more day fives, where sperm is critical to day 3-5 development. When your FS says he heard this stat at a conference, was it from a single study, meta-analysis or Cochrane? Also if there are no MFI, why do ICSI? The thing I like about PICSI is that it brings back natural selection, which ICSI takes away. However if you don't use ICSI then you'll have even more natural selection, which you'd think would be superior?
    @Gagingi - I'm not sure what the study was, I will have to ask at my next appointment. I don't have any MFI but was told I had to do ICSI because I was doing PGD ( some technical reason from memory). Since with HAICSI my fert rates have been pretty bad ( cycles 1 and 2 about 40-45% and cycle 3 70% for some reason), I figure if I didn't do ICSI my fert rates would be even worse. It's hard to know as sometimes eggs don't like being injected but in the other hand I've read ICSI is good for older women as the outer shell of the eggs so to speak tends to be tougher.

    I haven't seen it, and I'm not sure if it's a good idea for me to see it. I'm making a concerted effort to not watch things that will upset me at the moment.

    Most of the time I am ok and function relatively normally, but other times seeing something upsetting can really bring me down.

    I'm not familiar with this woman's story though. Is there a happy ending or does something bad happen?

    Good morning lovely ladies


    I have Telstra coming this morning to install our ADSL line. Should be fun - NOT! DH has basically told me to un-do the top button on my blouse and see if they will install a second line for us.


    We also got a load of wood delivered yesterday evening. We stacked half of it but there is a good tonne still to be moved and stacked. Guess between that and running away from the Telstra man I will get plenty of exercise today!


    How is everyone travelling today? Up to anything interesting?
