    Holy sweet mother - Nooooo!!! Please please let some miracle happen to spare at least one. I'm so sorry, i hope there is something they can do!

    Oh @skeeter I really hope they can halt things. A lady with twins in my first DIG had this from 22 weeks, kept bubs in til 27+6 and they're fine now. I hope they can work a miracle

    @skeeter - this is awful. Hoping they can do something to stop it progressing even if you have to lie in bed for the next 1O weeks.

    Default IVF over 40's #43

However I said I wanted to do one more squeezed in before I turned 43 and of course that was the one where I got the one golden egg. FS supported me with the 4th cycle only because I get lots of eggs. He said he wouldn't have if I'd been getting 3 or 4 eggs at retrieval.

    I would definitely have drawn the line at 4 cycles and was at peace with that decision. Im not sure how many OE you've done but you know yourself when to call it a day on OE cycles. Nothing my FS said would have really influenced me as I had to make up my mind for myself.

    Good luck with your decision.
    What an incredible experience!

    I'm glad you followed your gut.

    It has paid off beautifully. PGD normal!

    My FS isn't saying there's a golden egg in there or not, but I don't feel it either.

    Given Ive had a PGD normal not work - I just don't trust they're strong enuff having had a bfn....

    My FS did say that she had someone do DE and then at 45 had a Miracle normal naturally conceived child! Woah!

    I'm so happy for you, wow, I hope I have a golden egg be it mine or Someone else's!

    Thanks... at first they were unwilling to do anything and acted as though they were already gone, even though they both have heartbeats. Since the pain and bleeding have stopped they did consider options this morning, but decided not to do a stitch. My cervix is very shortened and there is too much risk for infection and rupturing of the sac. They will not try to stop labour since I am under 23 weeks. Each day is a wait and see, but they are convinced it is impossible for me to reach viability.

    @skeeter I am so so sorry - how terrifying! You are holding it together and that's a testament to your strength and faith. All I can really say is take each day as it comes.

    Also,

    No offence to your medical team but fruck them! Convinced?

    Right now - you have heart beats - that's a miracle.

    One miracle at a time...

    Have you seen a MFM Specialist Luv (Maternal Fetal Medicine)...if not ask to for a second opinion. If you have please disregard.

    Are they at least willing to do progestetone therapy (i.e more Crinone/pessaries) & complete bedrest to try to stop your cervix shortening any further?? Do something to try to get you to 23 weeks??

    I feel so distressed/angry on your behalf Luv!!! Am sending prayers for you & your babies. as well as much love & hugsxoxo

    ETA- They also use Progesterone Injections as well as the Crinonexo

She wasn't due until Thurs and decided to start making an appearance at 10 pm last night!! WTF??? I occasionally get these mega early AF's outside of my normal 27/28 day Cycles and now I'm getting even older I suspect they'll prob start to become more frequent either way (earlier and later)

    Anyhoo...it sounds like your appointment went well Luv So, she reckons 6 Stim rounds to *maybe* find the Golden Egg at our age?? When $$$ is a consideration as it is for most people, that makes it difficult doesn't it Luv to decide whether to keep going on a *maybe* (which for us at the time DE wasn't an option for many reasons, money the main one, so we kept going on a *maybe* knowing that we only had enough $$$ for 6 Stim Cycles then were going to have to call it quits no matter what) or like what you're doing...transfer your last frostie on a wing and prayer, hoping that it's a good embryo and that with Dr M's immune treatment it gets you over the line to a BFFP!!!

    If not, you've got your Plan B in place Luv DE's with the odds firmly in your favour (especially with an immune protocol in place as well). As for your PGD emby..it's true the odds are 60% success rate...why the other 40% fail..I don't know..I suspect some of that reason would be that they don't have the energy to keep on going to implant..However, it sure as sh!t doesn't help if you do have immune issues that your FS hasn't even bothered testing for FFS's!!! How your FS can then turn around and say"I don't think you have immune issues"....WTF???

    Annnnnd.....he/she would know that how if they haven't even bothered testing for them??? Thank fruck you're going to Dr M is all I can say Luv!!!
    Wow sounds like AF brought her rowdy entourage with her - ouch - you poor luv!!! Mega periods are hideous aren't they! I used to have to do around the clock ponstan before having my DD - otherwise I'd be walking dead groaning from pain. Sometimes it sux being a woman!

    Thank you for your support, BIB, I'm
    Looking forward to receiving some clarity from
    Dr M. Bring it on! X

    Hope you're feeling better
