So you'll be getting your transfer around my test day. It'll prob fly in for you and drag for me lol. I am really glad of this weekend away though to distract me. Its come at the perfect time!

Fingers crossed it's all going well at your scan tomorrow. I'm trying my hardest not to symptom spot but its fairly impossible to not think about every little twinge etc. I've had a few headaches, a couple of very mild left side twinges and my boobs are huge and tender but they've been like that since before egg collection so I think it's just the meds and progesterone. Focusing on just getting through the next 4 days then I'm away for the weekend. 3dp5dt today so 9 days to go until OTD.

OFD is 29th may. I would be a serial tester but hubby wont let me and would kill me if I did it without him so I have to wait. Might try to talk him into a day or two earlier but we'll see. Time has flown until now but its bound to drag from now on, the tww always seems to last forever though I do have few things coming up which will hopefully help take my mind off it. Tomorrow night we're having a Eurovision party with a drinking game but I'll be on the non alcoholic wine (from a normal wine bo...

One healthy looking blastocyst on board! They didnt actually say what quality but the embryologist said he was happy with it. Another looking kinda ok and two that weren't doing so good. I've to ring in Monday to see if they were able to freeze any but not holding my breath.

Awww I'm so sorry to hear that about your father. I do think it's a good idea to keep going since you're this far into your cycle, as you say it might just give a little bit of hope in a difficult time xxx Yeah I have to keep telling myself that 4 is much better than 3, 2, 1 or 0, it was just disappointing after so many eggs but the fact they were all still going strong on day 3 is great. I'm not sure how many they will put back, I dont know that we really get a choice. I've had 2 put back each ...

Just got my review letter

Hey, it really is such a long process. I dont know much about your situation specifically but the first thing they will do is send your partner for a semen analysis test. The results of that may determine what they do next. With me, my hubby's sample showed that he had a blockage and no sperm were getting through so we went straight to ICSI. If there's no issues with his SA then they may go to clomid, IUI or something like that. I have PCOS but do ovulate but very irregularly and they did say th...

Finally! Haven't been able to get on here in ages! Hows everyone getting on? I had egg collection on Sunday morning and we got 16 eggs was so shocked at how many we got. Unfortunately the elation was short lived as only 4 fertilised on Monday. Called again yesterday which was day 3 and the news was better. All 4 were still going strong 3 x 8 cell and 1 x 7 cell which were all good, gopd-excellent or excellent quality so it's in tomorrow morning for day 5 transfer. Fingers crossed all my little e...

Thanks babydream. Sun1979, as babydream has said its normally 4-6 weeks. On day 21 you start on sprays (or sometimes tablets, depends on the protocol) for between 2-4 weeks, depending on the clinics timetables etc. Then injections for 12 days though it can be longer if you're slower to respond like myself this time I'll have been on injections for 15 days. Then you'll have egg collection, transfer will either be 3 days or 5 days after egg collection. Good luck x

Sometimes it's better just to relax a bit, babydream. Obviously it wont really change the outcome but it has to be better for you (and baby) if you are less stressed. Fingers crossed for s happy and healthy pregnancy x Had my final scan this morning. They said its going well still one side better than the other but that's normal for me as I have a cyst on one side. I snuck a peek at the computer this morning and looks like I have 6 follicles on one side and 9 on the other all between 13-15mm whi...

Great news babydream! I'm so pleased for you! Odi, I always do mine in the evening too around 8pm as that's when I'm least busy. You just need to pick the time that's easiest for you really x

Hey ladies, scan yesterday went well. One side wasnt doing great but the other had a good response, first time Ive actually heard a positive reaction at my scans so fingers crossed. Kept me on the 450 for another few days, back in tomorrow again for another scan and hoping for EC on Saturday morning. How'd your scan go baby dream? Congratulations by the way, fingers crossed for positive news today x Odi, how are you getting on? Not long until you start injections x

Yeah I imagine they will keep me on it for a few days longer, they normally do, I've never had egg collection on the day it was actually planned before. Hopefully we'll see an improvement on Tuesday. I do really feel like theres something happening and I never felt anything before but I dunno if it's all in my head lol. The time really does fly in once you get started. Good luck for Friday! How are you getting on Lola? X

Not this high, 300 is the highest I've been in before so fingers crossed it helps. They have upped the dose a lot this time, every other time they upped it by 75, this time they've upped it by 150.

I phoned this afternoon and I do have to up the dose so fingers crossed it'll help and there'll be a bit more going on by my next scan on Tuesday.

Had my first scan today, not much happening unfortunately! The same as it always is at my scans, even though I was convinced I could feel something this time, must all be in my head I've to phone soon to see if they are going to up my dose from 300 to 450. I know what you mean about the pregnancy tests, though my hubby doesn't let me do tests early now. I was addicted when we were ttc naturally though and he didnt know how many I was using lol.

November cycle buddies

Hi fingersandtoes19, I have had 2 previous cycles and neither of them stuck to the schedule, I was on injections for a week extra the first time and got 4 eggs and 4 extra days the second time and got 5 eggs. So its nothing to worry about just sometimes takes a bit longer to grow the eggs. I'm on my 3rd cycle now, on day 6 of my injections and have my first scan on Friday with planned egg collection next Thursday (though with my track record I'm not holding my breath lol). Good luck with your eg...

At least theres some hope for me in that it's not always the same, you've had a small number and a large number of eggs. Fingers crossed I get a few more this time. I do think i feel something starting to happen, I never really felt anything the previous times. What did it feel like for you? Ive been getting kinda like very light cramps and a heavy kinda feeling if that makes sense. I've done 5 injections so far, first scan on Friday. How are you getting on?

Looking cycle buddy’s! Hoping to start April

I got 5 eggs last time and 4 eggs the time before. It's annoying when you hear of ladies getting 10 or 20 eggs. My AMH level is great and they thought I would respond well so on my first cycle they started me on 150 then upped to 225. Second cycle they stared me on 225 and upped to 300. This time I'm starting on 300 which is the highest dose they are allowed to give me because my AMH level is good. Hoping that starting on the higher dose will give me a few more eggs, just want enough be be able ...
