New to all of this

Hiya everyone. I've been reading your posts and I just wanted to say thanks for making me feel like there is hope out there. I have a balanced translocation (5 and 20) and have had 4 miscarriages. My DH and I have just had our first appointment and are about to start PDG. I only have one ovary as well which makes me think that i'll produce less eggs and all the one that fertilise will be affected by the translocation and so it will all be for nothing - did any of you worry that would happen?

Hi Pearl and Scoffs, welcome to our PGD chatter thread, it's always lovely to have new ladies on here.
Welcome to FZ too Scoffs! I hope you feel at home here soon. I'm really sorry to hear about your miscarriages and hope PGD does the trick for you. I too worry that all my embryos will be unbalanced but that is unlikely that all of them will be, and there's only on way to find out!
Bighope, I hope your appointment on Monday goes well, how very exciting!
Christine, hope you're feeling good, any symptoms yet?
Natz, how's your drugs doing?
Tats and Busybee, hello!
My news - I am booked for egg collection on Monday morning 8.30. I have approx 18 follies mostly 17-19mm today. They have told me not to take any more Gonal F and my Ovitrelle HCG trigger shot is tomorrow night at 8.30. I can't believe I'm doing EC again. The EC is the easy bit, it's the waiting to find out how the embies are doing over the next few days which is the hard part, and then I've never had the biopsy stage before ....
Hope you all have a good weekend x

Pearl FZ stands for fertilityzone. Ros that is great news and I wish you all the best for Monday and then the waiting to see what is happening. I'm sure you'll be fine and look at me I only had one embryo and I got a BFP. Welcome Scoffs to FZ and to the PGD thread. My DH is the one with the translocation of 3 and 9 and I have had one mc. I had 8 eggs harvested, 6 of which were fertilised but out of them only three actually fertilised. Out of that three only two were able to be biopsied but one had translocation and the other one didn't. It is very hard every time you phone to hear the number dropping but I'm proof that it does only take one so I hope that this is of some comfort. I feeling fine still only got the sore boobs and I hope it stays that way. I still get tired easy but that's because I'm getting too used to not doing anything. Looking forward to the weekend, my Dad is on his way up from England as he is over from Cyprus. He is staying with us for the weekend and we will be out and about for the next couple of days. Hope everybody else has a great weekend.

Christine xx





Keep happy and healthy xxx

Hey ladies, I hope you've found our new home (I guess you have if you're reading this). Since there are so many of us now we have our own area on FZ, very exciting I think! So there's much more space for us to chatter away :D x

Hi everyone - and welcome Scoffs, nice to have you here. Try and stay positive, it must have been awful having 4 mcs, but now you are doing everything you can, so don't lose heart at the first hurdle. I'm sure it will be worth it in the end. Like Christine says it only takes 1 embryo! - same with us, 9 eggs, 7 fertilised and 2 cells taken from each and biopsied, 5 had the syndrome, 1 inconclusive, leaving 1 emby who fought from day 1 and from the remaining 5 cells on ET day is now a beautiful 9 month-old!

How are you feeling about Monday Ros? Is the biopsy scheduled for Thursday then? and Monday is a big day for you Bighope too - I shall be thinking of you both then.

Hows the DR Nat? and Busybee, not heard from you for a while, hope everything's ok.

I empathise with the sore boobs Christine. Glad no sickness though, maybe you'll be lucky though and sail through without it. Think how much your body is doing without you knowing - you're bound to feel tired, try and rest up as much as poss. It'll be nice to catch up with your dad, bet he's thrilled for you too and looking forward to a new grandchild.

Hi Pearl - how goes it? and Louhoo - how are you? Thank you both for your kind words, they cheered me up when I certainly wasn't feeling strong, in fact this morning I was ready to go to pieces - I've been in contact with someone re education for my DSs and it seems like we've just arrived at the foot of a very large mountain which we've got to climb, when she phoned me this morning with bad news I just burst into tears, but fortunately the day got better and this afternoon went to my DD's school concert and out to tea afterwards with both DDs and my mum and step-dad - a rare treat as usually find it too difficult to take DSs to a restaurant but was able to escape without them today!

Its our village fete tomorrow which I'm manning a stall at (teddy's birth place, sweeties in a jar, hoopla, tattoos etc. - oh joy!) so here's hoping it's hot and sunny and not a complete washout 88)

Enjoy your weekends. Night night x

Thanks everyone for your good wishes :smile:

Ros, glad your scan went well. That is fantastic news! :happy: Looking forward to hearing about your follies growing and EC going well on Monday!

Tats, glad you are feeling better and more positive. They say being a mum is the most challenging job any woman can ever take on and I'm sure you are doing a great job as a mom! Well, it takes someone sooooo special to manage to go through the long and stressful journey of PGD while looking after two special needs kids smile2!!!

Christine, wish you a healthy and easy pregnancy! Hope you have a good time with your dad this weekend!

Nat, hope you are sleeping well and remember to keep the positive visualisation going! Are you still having wheatgrass? I stopped it for a few days and got another bottle yesterday. I've also been trying to be verrrrrry healthy and which is making me feel so good :D

Scoffs, welcome to our PGD thread and hope you start your treatment very soon. Where are you having your tx if you don't mind me asking?

Hi to Louhoo, Pearl and busybee.

Have a nice weekend everyone.

Tats, glad you had a good time this afternoon. Remember you need time for yourself so accept help from others who you feel are close to you. Hope it's nice and sunny tomorrow and good luck with your stall :smile:

Good night everyone.

Evening Ladies :smile:

Well I am very pleased we have our own area on :FZ: We really have made an impact :D :D

Welcome Scoffs to our thread and I hope you feel at home with us ladies :smile:

Ros, good luck with your last injection tonight, I am so excited for you and hopefully I will be having my last injection this time next week preparing for EC on 22 June :happy: I am supposed to be going to the Take That concert next Sat but don't think I`ll be able to if the injection has to be taken in the evening.....oh well this is much more important but feel rotten letting my friend down :innocent:

Bighope, that is fantastic news! I have a big smile on my face for you, you are nearly there :dancing: Exciting!!!

Tats, hope your day went well at the village fete. You got a nice day for it biggrin2

Hope everyone else is having a great weekend....gosh there is so many of us now, personal hellos takes a while :teehee:

Well today was day 5 of the stimm injections and it is getting easier to do. I am a bit bloated but apart from that i`m ok. I was actually thinking that its maybe not working as don't feel anything going on inside like other ladies has spoken about ?(

Glad your stimms injections are easier now Nat. I felt like a pincushion - and by the end struggled to find a non-purple area to stab! I'm sure it will be working, just feel blessed if you're not suffering. Can you not take your injection with you to the concert? What a fantastic opportunity, it'd be a shame to miss it! I was attending the Scout centenary event at the Millenium Dome, sorry O2 arena, when I had to take my last injection, so I just took my cool bag along for the ride (including a ferry trip down the Thames!) - and that was after flying down from Scotland, then taking a train into London, a tube across town and finally the boat - must have been one of the most well-travelled injections ever! Anyway it meant I could go to the event and still inject on time even if it did mean I had to nip off to the loo for some privacy to do it. As long as you take a doctor's letter to explain why you are carrying it I'm sure security won't be a problem if they ask - they were fine checking in on the aeroplane for instance.

Had a great day at the fete - the sun shined and the village were out in force! We did really well on our stall and did our bit in making some money to help keep the hall going a bit longer!

Enjoy your evenings ladies. Bye for now, Tats x

Hey ladies,

I've started a new PGD chatter page for us if anyone else wants to move over there. I thought it would be handy for anyone joining the site.

So I'll put the rest of my post over on there ...

Hi Everyone

Thanks for the warm welcome - you certainly are a lovely bunch - I hope everyone had a lovely weekend.

Having tx at Oxford fertility unit. My first impression is that they seem pretty nice, although we've only met with the consultant so far and that was last week so we have a long way to go yet. I'm sick of miscarriages and dashed hopes etc so we thought that another approach may work (crossed fingers and toes) although am realistic.

How long did it take for permission from HFEA to come through for you guys. Our consultant said it would take a couple of months? Just wondered.

Good luck with tx everyone. Wishing BFP to all!!

Hi Scoffs, I think the other ladies are all using the PGD chatter page now.
I'm not sure about HEFA permission as I didn't go for funding in the end, if you ask on the chatter page one of the other ladies will be able to help. x
