    That's great news @Heyside I am so relieved that we finally have a good news story on this thread this month. I was so hoping that at least one of us would get there so we had something to celebrate!

    I dunno what's worse @gorgeousgeorge I reckon they are equally gutting. I always think "at least I can get pregnant" but then I get upset when I think that it's my body that is killing these perfectly good embryos, so what's the point in getting pregnant in the first place. At least this one is early enough that it will just be like a heavy period. I've had 2 D&Cs and didn't want to have any more is case it fracked my lining so I took the pills last time which wasn't pleasant.
    At the end of the day it just all frucked up what we have to go through.

    End of rant. Sorry ladies, I'm still processing.

    @LillyM That must have been such a lot to swallow.. I can understand why you feel so upset.
    I agree with the other ladies though, there are so many FS out there quite happy to just continue taking our money knowing full well the odds are stacked against us. It sometimes felt to me like I was caught in a money making machine, feeding off people's desperation.
    Like @Blossom74, I wish I had given up on the dream of using my own eggs earlier and saved our money for other things. My biggest hesitation with using DE was that we already have a child conceived naturally, and there would be a biological difference. Now I am pregnant with twins on the way and I realise it doesn't matter, these little bubs growing inside me ARE my babies, nobody else's, and I am just so grateful to be expanding our little family. I'm so relieved to be off the hideous roller coaster of IVF.
    I was ready.. but it took a bit to come to this, and well, I'm just glad I did.
    Whatever path you decide to take, you'll have everyone's support here. ❤️

    @LillyM. I feel for you hun. I am same age and haven't been successful with ivf or anything, don't know what future is ahead of me.

    Me and DP started ttc 2 years ago naturally and casually until we watched a ABC four corners prog about IVF. It shows a lot of clinics in Australia do things unethically. They let women try ivf as many time as they want cause their focus is on profit rather than wellbeing of patients. It also talked about age and fertility. That's a wake up call for us. Since then we started taking things very seriously.

    I remember in the prog, it talked about 7 time of failed ivf is prob time to call. I guess that might be Charlotte gave you the suggestion to use DE. Plus Charlotte and Warren are very nice dr they really care about their patients.

    However, I also heard one woman tried over 17 times ivf and eventually got pregnant with her own egg.

    If you really believe ivf with your own egg is still an option, by all means go for it.

    I think we need to have a bottom line or plan B if you like. Me and DP talked about prob use DE from our relatives like cousin or niece if that's the way to go one day.

    Can you get a second opinion from other doctor? Did your precious FS throughly examined the reasons of your failed cycles?

    Sometimes it's like a lottery, hope one day we will be the lucky ones.

    Well done on the sneaky hcg test @Heyside. So glad everything is heading in the right direction for you. I can imagine your little one got bored but it sounds like she wasn't too bad.

    Feel free to vent away @Spazzyp. Did you have genetic testing done with either d&c?
