@winsor I'm not surprised you had s headache after that morning! Take care of yourself, you are bound to have good days and bad and sometimes the bad days will be the ones you don't think will be. Just let your feelings be, they are exactly what you should be feeling at that stage xxxx
As for 3/5 day transfers I've done both but was only going to do pgd normal transfers at the end. Unfortunately none were normal, which explains why none of my d3 or d5 worked!

Re the d3 or d5 transfers i dont normally get many embies so isually had d3 transfers. My success pregnancy resulted from a d2 transfer so miracles can happen. Often d5 transfers are done cause if you have numerous embies it is hard at d3 to determine the strong ones.

My FS#1 always put back one on day 3, or if it looked really bad day 2. Some couples get very upset if they have nothing to transfer and at QFG it costs the same (unless you have severe OHSS apparently), so many FSs try to do a transfer. Wazza likes day 5 or even 6, but said to us if you transfer a day 3 and it was going to work as a day 5 it will still work as a day 2 or 3. Wazza's big thing is not to bin any rough embies if possible as he has seen them work - so if a double or triple transfer is an option that might be worth a go. He has also said that in his opinion if it doesn't make it in the petrie dish to day 5, it won't have made it in utero. Also some that aren't strong enough for PGD make beautiful babies too apparently...

Good morning ladies
@Chiefsgirl I am so excited that you are almost there! I think you are the first one from this thread that I've known all the way through from prior to DE to making that decision to following it through and now you are going to have a baby in a week! You are such an inspiration for what can happen when you set a course and just go for it. I know you did a huge amount of things to get here with the intralipids and LIT therapy and all the rest - what a credit to you - it's a been a huge journey for you and I'm so happy that you will have your little girl in your arms any day now
@winsor it sounds like you handled a really difficult day very well and it is such early days that melt-downs are only to be expected. Even now, eighteen months since my last miscarriage something can suddenly trigger the grief out of the blue and I'll be knocked sideways with it. Be gentle with yourself, I'm glad you took the whole day off. And it is good to get that confirmation that your reactions are all normal and that you are doing really well.
@Charlie74 you are still young! Oh my goodness I am turning 45 shortly and I haven't even gotten to any firm DE plans as yet, so if all does go to plan I likely won't be having bubs until I'm 46 and then if it does go OK, then a sibling a couple of years later. I never saw myself as an older parent, but I love what @faithandhopellove wrote about it and I do see it that way too.
@rockalee that sounds very promising and I hope those follies keep developing beautifully for you!
@Maxwellsmum I hope you're going OK too and that your donor is doing well - has she had a scan yet to see how many follies she has?
Blossom74 any news of Tahli as yet? Can you give her a call?

She's going good Luv and is getting there slowly but surely Is still staying with me for the moment. There's been plenty of chocolate, but no wine sadly!!!
My LO is unwell again with the same thing she had a few weeks ago, so best to be keeping my wits about me I think The Ex is banging on again about going to counselling
He's emotionally all over the shop and I must admit I am concerned for his emotional welfare but I can't make him accept the help I'm desperately trying to encourage him to get.

Morning lovely ladies. I'll pop back on properly after I've got things under control here (messy house!) but I just wanted to let you know I've heard from our dear @Tahli and she is ok.
Lucky girl was off at a wedding in the national forest with no phone reception. Can just imagine all the bubbly and cake she had access to that I didn't
So glad to hear she is safe and sound. @Tahli, please do pop in and say hi when you're able to
Back later babes! Off to clean the bomb site

Girls, I'm really sorry I did a post and then ran. I've been down the coast in a national park for my sister's wedding, where I didn't have any phone or internet connection.
To cut a long story short, my ex and I have reached a crux where we need to do our financial settlement asap. Unfortunately this means I won't have access to IVF funds until we've completed the settlement which all up I predict will be 6 months.
Add to this, I've hit an all time low. Severely depressed. I think 4 failed ED transfers totaling 7 embryos has finally hit me. Time for a break.
I wish you all well and @Chiefsgirl a gentle little kiss for your sweet baby girl's forehead. Big love, xx.

First of all hon, WELCOME BACK We have so missed seeing you here
I did suspect that things might have come to a head with your ex regarding the settlement. I think it really sucks that you have to beg and grovel to him in order to try and do something so very personal, and I've really felt for you having to try and negotiate your way through that whilst also trying to keep things civil for your DS's sake. It is a tough road for sure and I think you deserve a bl00dy medal
I really do hope things get sorted well before your 6 month prediction. I know when my DH and his ex split is was very messy and even though he basically handed everything to her on a platter she still didn't want to agree to anything purely out of spite! I am hoping things will be a bit more co-operative for you and your ex and that your financial matters are not so complex that the judge can sort it out for you quickly.
Even if it does take six months - heck, even if it takes a year, it still doesn't rule out another shot for you once things are finalised money-wise. There is still hope hon! And just think how nice it would be to do the whole thing under your own terms. Yes, I am still very confident for you. It's NOT over yet hon.
I am really sorry that you're having a bit of a sad time at the moment though. We are all here to support you. You have certainly given this IVF caper a red-hot go and it's really unfair that it hasn't worked for you so far. However I truly feel in my heart that there is hope. I wonder if you were a bit of a victim of poor circumstance and that those dear little embies were perhaps not meant to stay no matter where they were transferred. It is very sad but I am crossing everything for you and I am pretty confident that a brand new donor will give you your much longed for baby, and it will happen when the time is right.
You have been through so much and I think it is important to allow yourself to feel that. It is ok to grieve and to fall in a heap sometimes. Just know that we are here to carry you when you cannot walk yourself.
Big hugs for you hon.
