    I completely agree with continuing to live during TTC (budget permitting) it’s a long Road for many of us and having a holiday or nice meal out to look forward to makes a big difference.

    In advance I would be making sure your relationship is as strong as possible, ours took a real hit from the stress and hormones of IVF.

    [QUOTE=Jurodice;8884277]Frozen eggs generally have a 90-95% thaw rate not 50%. Or maybe I'm thinking of embryos. But otherwise I agree to start sooner than later. The average number of transfers to fall pregnant is 4. We were trying to conceive for 8.5 years (not doing fertility treatments that whole time) before falling pregnant with ivf on the fourth transfer (3 of which were good quality embryos).
    Bub is sure any day now and we've got a 7 day cruise booked for oct for our 10th anniversary. The in laws will be looking after bub while we are gone. We'll likely take her on our next holiday though.[/QUOTE

    @Jurodice :-) Frozen embryos have a much higher thaw rate than frozen eggs. This is because embryos have hundreds of cells by day 5 and everytime you thaw you lose some cells. Embryos can afford to lose a few cells and recover. An egg only has 1 cell therefore they cant survive if that 1 cell is damaged/lost during the thaw. Just to explain a little better. :-)

    Ah right. I was thinking as I wrote that, that it was embryos.
