IVI Cycle Buddies part 21

Thanks Bianca.  ^hugme^ xxx

I think we would probably remain with IVI for now, as we have already paid for the PGS, which we were told we can use for up to 6 embryos being tested and we have only used it for 1 so far (as that is all that made it to Day 5). So we would only (*only?!) have the IVF to pay for (as well as flights/accommodation obviously).  I am also really happy with Dr Simon, but I am, of course, regretting not having had immunes testing prior to this FET, especially since we only had 1 embie to use - it might have saved us the heartache.  But then again, I've also read that some ladies have immunes testing / treatment and still have failed cycles.  I just assumed that as we had a chromosomally normal embryo, which also happened to be a hatched blastocyst (the best development stage you can get, I think) AND lining was good, that it would most likely work.  But I guess I was naive to think that. 

Oh..and I am glad you will get your ERA results this week, finally! I'm sure it will all be fine this time.  ^reiki^  Hope your doggy is okay, I'm sure he will get plenty of attention from you. :-)

I'll let you know how the call goes.  xxx

    I known "only IVF"  :'( :'( :'(
    I really like doctor Simon too ..I am sure you can discuss a different protocol and see if there are any more test you could do ... if I could I would do all the testing at once ...basically spend a month in the clinic being tested and prodded  :)

    I have now bought Ruben a new cone ..which looks more like plane  neck cushion...anything to make his life easier bless him...i find it so hard when animals are not well..and they look at your with those eyes...
    but cant say anything...

    Good luck with the call my darling and speak later

    hi all
    Bianca I'm doing well thanks first day back so extremely tired

    Nicnik That's good that you have heard from your co-ordinator I was scared about doing donor egg route cause I felt it wouldn't be mine but I am the one who is carrying a child so it would be mine at end of day and if friends have said in the past why are you going down this route and not having my own then I would say it is mine thanks but if you aint ready to go down that route then that's your choice do it when your ready.
    first day back went well thanks I couldn't wait to get back only so much I can take of these four walls

    hope all have had a fab Monday
    speak to you all soon
    Colette

    Nicnik - have you had your call yet? I guess so as I'm coming to this a bit late. How did it go? Did you manage to make a list of questions and get all the answers you need? Re OE/DE - I guess that depends on what's more important to you and if you have any cut off. Eg you may have an age cut off for giving birth (an own personal thought on it) which, if close to that, you might be swayed more towards DE for example. If you don't have that own imposed restriction or even a financial restriction then it may be worth trying again with OE. But if it's a case of only being able to afford one more go, then perhaps DE would be more likely to result in a child. Ultimately it's a hard choice and only one you can make. I find making pros and cons lists. My friend who told me about this site had 7 OE IVF failed cycles; 1 boy from DE and then got pregnant naturally with her daughter. She says she loves them both equally. Good luck!

    Joboby - I can imagine being a nurse does take your mind off it while you're there! 2 more sleeps for me. Yes I've booked an appt weds lunchtime. Have you? I think I'll do the HPT in the morning.

    Bianca - sorry about your dog. Hopefully he'll make a speedy recovery! Not long til your ERA result, right?

    Sfbetts1 - how are you?

    Jane - when's your next scan? All still going well? Did I ask this before, did they tell you the sex of the embryos?

    Morning ladies,

    Nicnik how was your call with the doctor? I fully understand your concerns over DE , we had the same but once we had had 2 failed OEIVF cycles due basically to my old eggs, we took time out. I can honestly say that I don't even think about the eggs being donor, they are my babies that I am carrying, I am feeding them, it's my blood etc, truly it doesn't enter my mind and if for a second it does its in a grateful way nothing else. You will come to a decision that's right for you  ^hugme^

    Hereshoping & JoBoby, how are you both doing? Not long now, really hoping for positive news for you both. JoBoby, we didn't home test until after the HCG, but when we got the news we wanted to see it on a stick  ;D! Btw constipation isn't a bad sign  ;) Hereshoping, in case I can't get on here later, good luck for tomorrow, oh & spotting was a good sign for me, so hopefully for you too   ^hugme^

    Bianca how's little Rubén? We have one of those collars for ours, far more user friendly  :). Should you be getting your ERA today  / tomorrow?

    Collette, I'm a Zita West fan too but I haven't got that book, I use her vitamins. Are you going to chase IVI up about some news for your donor? How long has it been now, is it 2 months?

    Wheezy09 I'm so sorry to hear about the negative result  ^hugme^. I agree with the others with regards to selecting a clinic, Barcelona or Madrid are much easier, IVI have also opened a clinic in London so I hear but not sure what the DE programme is like due to different regulations in the UK.

    I hope everyone else is ok.

    Afm, we had a horrible Sunday with lots of horrible discharge & dull aching so went for a scan yesterday & im extremely relieved to say that both babies are doing well, they have grown massively, they were 2 days behind their age in days at the first scan & now they are 2 days ahead which is fantastic. I think I will have another scan in 2 weeks when we are nearly 10 weeks and then the NHS will kick in. I have an appointment this morning with a specialist in London, my plan is to see her on a monthly basis working alongside the NHS , at least until I am off all of the drugs. Hereshoping, I didn't know that they could tell you the sex of the embryos but apparently with a 4D scan we can find out at 14 weeks.

    Have a good day everyone xxx

    hi all
    Jane I'm on folic acid been taking them since june which my doctor told me to take until I was pregnant I do find the book useful and may try her vitamins when I am at your stage but not yet I'm giving them another week then I'm chasing them I came back 11th February so over a month nearly 2 months so by next week I will be ready to chase them. Not so good that you have been having aches glad everything ok and glad you are having checks regularly until NHS kicks in

    hope everyone else is ok

    Hello everyone.

    Jane - so sorry to hear you've had a tough time, but so very glad it's all ok. I was getting a bit worried when we hadn't heard from you in a couple of days. Has everything calmed down now? What's the date of your next scan? I hope you're taking it easy and not working too hard. Which clinic are you doing your scans with? Good luck with your appt. Let us know how it goes.

    Collette - good idea to chase them up next week. I found them a bit slow to begin with too.

    Joboby - not long to go. My boobs are killing me too. I thought this could also be the drugs.  I keep getting random shooting pains around my body - in my chest/ stomach/ legs etc. That's not too unusual for me but it's freaking me out a little now as I think I'm just more sensitive. I'm going to Harley Street Fertility clinic for the blood test. Basically as I can get there and back (hopefully) in my lunch. I won't get the results until the evening so it's going to be a looooong day. I did pee on a stick this morning and it was positive but I'm not reading too much into it until I hear back from the real doctors tomorrow! (but yes Jane I'm still saying positive mantras ;-)) Joboby - I'll be impressed if you don't give in!

    One question - can I start exercising again? I'm desperate to. Partly as weirdly I have more energy now than I've had in years. I think this might be as I was going through POF but now with all the hormones it's taking me back to how I was at 30! Can I do pilates? Swimming? Aerobics (I was doing insanity - I guess that's too hardcore?)

    Nicnik - how are you doing? I hope that you're coping ok and that when you spoke to the doctor he helped.

    Right, pessary time :-) Sleep well everyone.

    Just a very quick note for now to say best of luck for your blood test today Hereshoping! The fact you've had a positive POA tells me it's going to be very good news for you!  :)

    I'll write back properly later today to everyone else. xxx
