    Today was transfer day and we were lucky enough to transfer 2 AA with potential of 5 being good to freeze tomorrow. To say we are delighted is an understatement! We start the journey home tomorrow and are praying we have two sticky ones onboard!

    I've been avoiding writing this post, partly because it's so painful & partly because I don't want to dampen others joy with our sadness. Obviously the results were BFN and I am truly heartbroken. It's taken us 5 years and all manner of medical intervention to make it to ET and I foolishly thought this was our time.

    I'm not sure where we go to from here, but I have emailed the clinic in SA to get some more details on bringing the remaining embryos to Australia. The embryologist said before we left that she would be happy to liaise with the transport company in Johannesburg about this, but currently the clinic is closed so we will have to wait until next year.

    But honestly I don't know how much more I can take. It has taken such a toll on our marriage and i feel like I can't make anymore space for this sadness. DH is from a traditional west african family, and won't dare mention our troubles to them for fear they will forced him into taking another wife. So I wonder if all this pressure and expectation in addition to the ED roller coaster will one day break us. Has anyone come back from this kind of hopelessness????Or maybe I should be posting on the childless not by choice? I know I sound utterly pathetic, and all woe is me....but would be really good to hear from someone going through something similar.

    Hugs your not pathetic!!! Your going through a lot and it's a very difficult time!

    Can you take this moment whilst u wait to transport your embies to Australia to breathe and jump off this IVF roller coaster just for a little bit. Take time to be a couple.

    It must be hard your hubby side of family having expectations. I had an Indian friend who had PCOS and his family gave her the deadline of producing a child in one year after 5yrs of trying otherwise he would be made divorce to take another wife. It is hard when other cultures don't quite understand or have expectations.

    Hugs

    Ladies im loking for some recomm of accommodation near the waterfront in capetown. There is sooo many to choose from so would prefer personal reccs if possible. Apartments would be fine.

    Oh Blu it's really hard, I've seen success with donor egg but also two failed rounds with donor cycles too, it's not always a magic bullet and sometimes takes more than one or two attempts. I'm picking myself up for another go after a year away from IVF. It's a really tough road.
    I don't believe you can transport embryos into Australia from overseas, I did enquire with my specialist here a few months ago and was told it's not legal. I do believe you can transfer them into Asia so you may want to contact clinics in Kuala Lumpur as I understand it might be the place to try this, Thailand is very strict since the whole baby Gammy debacle a couple of years ago. Hang in there, regroup, grieve and reassess. Thinking of you x
