    Sadly lots of familiar names in here.

    Stay away from the shops & public spaces ladies.. I didn't realise it's school holidays & had to go to a major shopping centre & also sat in a park for a coffee.. Pregnant bellies, babies & toddlers EVERYWHERE..

    Absolute torture!

    If you don't mind me asking, for those of you who have a DH/Partner, how have they coped during this horrible infertility journey?

    Our friends announced their second pregnancy today & my DH admitted he felt "absolutely gutted" instead of happy when he heard the news.

    It made me stop & think that often I am so caught up in my own misery after each failed cycle & self loathing that my body didn't do what it was suppose to do, that I often overlook how deeply it affects DH as well.

    Mine has been quiet. He is a quiet person anyway but I think because it's me with the infertility he feels like I blame myself, which I do, but it won't help me if he complains out loud like I do. Does that make any sense? He's said "it's our turn next" when our siblings are falling pregnant each year. He's been more optimistic with each failed cycle as I've just fallen apart. I guess he feels like one of us has to be the optimist one, perhaps? Our failed egg donor situation in February has made him say more and more that he's sick of the roller coaster. He has given up and I'm not sure that I have. We both avoid babies and hanging around people with babies. It's tough on both partners and each one handles situations differently.

    We had to do IVF because of MFI, so he has felt very guilty over the whole journey with everything I've had to go through. I just try to make sure I check in with him and actually ask how he's feeling, not making it about myself at all, but giving him the space to talk about how he's going. I've been the one leading the charge with IVF, so it's been a relief to DH when I've shared my doubts and worries that things wouldn't work.

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum. I started my first cycle almost 2 weeks ago. I didn't have HIGH hopes but didn't expect what happened today either. We are going through ivf because we need to do PGD testing on account of my husbands gene which he could pass on, 50/50 chance. Our doctor said everything looked fine for me & that I was above average for my age in terms of egg count etc. I'm 34. We went into this expecting 15 eggs, Dr said. First ultrasound 1 week into cycle showed we could get about 8-10. Second ultrasound confirmed that the next day & also that I would be ready for my trigger the next night. I went in for egg collection today & 1hr before felt a lot of cramping & couldn't stand up right. When I came out, they told me I had ovulated earlier in the day & that we only got 3 eggs. I am so upset & angry. How can they not know when I was going to ovulate? They were closed on Sunday, couldn't they have done a scan that morning to find out more?! Apparently this is VERY rare. I can't believe this happened.

    @Natey08, unfortunately this does happen sometimes. It happened to me one cycle. Next time, your FS will probably put you on the medication that stops ovulation earlier in your cycle - the first one is often a bit of a learning experience unfortunately. Best of luck with your next cycle!

    @Natey08 this also happened to me last year. I was hyperstimulated and they were expecting around 30 eggs! When I woke up I was very disappointed to find out they only got 12, which seems like a great number, but only 7 were mature enough for ICSI and only 2 of those managed to get through to day 3 for freezing. After a couple of months break to avoid bad OHSS I prepared for a FET only to find out the day before transfer that both embryos didn't survive the thaw.

    My FS told me that I had ovulated before EPU, so I lost all my good eggs from the largest follicles and the remaining ones weren't good quality. Basically my body responded too well to the trigger. They try to time it so EPU happens only a few hours before ovulation would occur so the eggs are as mature as possible and it's easy to flush them out. The next cycle they gave me a different trigger and made me first on the list for EPU day so there weren't any delays if they happened to have difficulties with other patients.
