Woo hoo!!! Taken so long, but you got there. Well done. Lets pray for an uneventful 9 months. Theia its you and I now. I hope you will receive the happy news soon.

Thank you!!! It’s absolutely crazy, we all wait so long and try so hard but it’s actually scary to be excited because there’s so many other milestones yet to reach!! I think the excitement will kick in if the first scan is all fine!!
This just proves there is hope for everyone though!!
How did you go yesterday, any further updates?
Posted 22 September 2018 - 07:32 AM
Hopefully get 3 to 4 good eggs. trigger tonight at 11.45. Let's hope this new drug, Rekovelle is the key!

Woohoo!! I had a double trigger this round which I’ve not done before. 3 injections, 2 different drugs.
Keep us updated with EPU xx

I'm enjoying a day of no injections and not looking at the clock at 7pm! Don't mind egg collection day. I have the new Lianne moriaty book while I wait.

Well enjoy & relax, I’ll be thinking of you tomorrow!!

Thinking of you today BlueLavendar, hope it goes well today.

2 eggs today so the worst so far. I guess we will wait and see.
Posted 24 September 2018 - 01:29 PM
I'm so sorry BL, hopefully it's a case of quality over quantity.

I did give a quick call to the FS. He said that yes that is a function of age- as when I did it 3 years ago, I consistently got 5 eggs. fsh is still good. Ill wait to see what happens.

It seems to me that there's also a bit of natural variation between cycles too, from 4 cycles I've had 6, 5, 3 and 7. Seems a bit of dumb luck is involved in all of this. Perhaps the new medication had an effect on numbers too? Great news that your fsh is still good so more rounds are still an option. Hoping you get good news on fertilisation tomorrow.

Oh blue lavender I hope you get two little embies tomorrow!! My fingers are crossed for you xx

both have fertilised- so just waiting for the calls on Thursday and Saturday.

Great news blue lavendar, hope the good news continues on thursday.
Posted 27 September 2018 - 10:31 AM
Hope you get a good day 3 report today blue lavendar.
Posted 27 September 2018 - 10:35 AM
Grrrr. One has already fractured. The other ok. Another long 48 hours. I will have an appointment with the fs. We aren't getting to day 5 anymore. I do feel sad as we are coming to an end now.
Posted 27 September 2018 - 11:34 AM
Fingers crossed for the one still going.
It definitely gets harder the closer you get to the end, will you do another round if this one doesn't work?
Posted 27 September 2018 - 05:26 PM
Struggling a little, no doubt in my mind that this transfer has failed so I guess I'll be back stimming next week.
Posted 27 September 2018 - 06:50 PM
Sorry you feel that way. And it's a long weekend. Hopefully we both have some news soon which lifts our mood. I will be taking a break.

Yeah, tested this morning (6dp5dt) and not even the hint of a shadow of a line. Just twiddling my thumbs til tuesdays blood test confirms and then looking forward to putting this month behind me and getting on with the next cycle.
I will be stalking tomorrow for your day 5 results, crossing my fingers for a hatching blast ready for testing.
