    Evening All,

    Maria and Sky, Im so sorry to hear your news! How are you both? do either of you have a plan moving forward? take time lovelies and do what makes you happy!!! :) Be kind to yourselves!!!!

    Wobbly, what lovely news! How are you feeling? Not long to go until your next scan!!!

    How are you doing Tickety in the TWW??

    Good Luck Mouse for tomorrow, keep us posted how it goes!

    Also Leanne, same to you for Friday..... keep us posted! It will be interesting to see when both of your OTD's are, as clinics vary so much don't they!!! I was 13DP for my FET.

    AFM, scan tomorrow to check this lining and ovaries.... hopefully its all calmed down and the lining is thin enough to being stimming on Friday! Does anyone know what they look for in regards to the lining, Im sure mine was at 6.4, 9 days ok.

    Take care x

    @WobblyTulip glad to hear so far so good!
    @Fyfey good luck with your scan tomorrow, unfortunately I can't help about lining, I never knew mine how much it was!

    I'm taking care of myself, had a relaxing bath and trying to think what to do next, got 2 frosties left...I knew it was going to be negative but it's still disappointing after all the efforts!

    HCG blood results show 1.0 IU/L, does anyone knows what it means, implantation failure? At which stage the embryo suppose to stick, immediately or after few days? Trying to understand what it went wrong  :'(

    Hope everyone else is ok x

    Maria - anything that is 5miu/ml HcG is considered as not pregnant, between 5 and 25 is inconclusive and need a retest in 48 hrs and over 25 is pregnant.

    Regarding implantation, I copied the below from another post somewhere on this site. Implantation day post transfer depends on whether itís a 3 or 5 day transfer. Hope this is helpful x

    This is what happens in a 3 day transfer:

    1 day post transfer - embryo is growing and developing
    2  days post transfer - Embryo is now a blastocyst
    3 days post transfer - Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
    4 days post transfer - Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
    5 days post transfer - Implantation begins, as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
    6 days post transfer - Implantation process continues and morula buries deeper in the lining
    7 days post transfer - Morula is completely implanted in the lining and has placenta cells &  fetal cells
    8 days post transfer - Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
    9 days post transfer - More HCG is produced as fetus develops
    10 days post transfer - More HCG is produced as fetus develops
    11 days post transfer - HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on HPT

    This is what happens in a 5 day (blastocyst) transfer:

    1 day post transfer - Blastocyst hatches out of shell on this day
    2 days post transfer - Blastocyst attaches to a site on the uterine lining
    3 days post transfer - Implantation begins, as the blastocyst begins to bury in the lining
    4 days post transfer - Implantation process continues and blastocyst buries deeper in the lining
    5 days post transfer - Blastocyst is completely implanted in the lining and has placenta cells & fetal cells
    6 days post transfer - Placenta cells begin to secret HCG in the blood
    7 days post transfer - More HCG is produced as fetus develops
    8 days post transfer - More HCG is produced as fetus develops
    9 days post transfer - HCG levels are now high enough to be immediately detected on HPT

    Cheers WobblyTulip, very helpful! Basically since mine was a 3 Day transfer, the embryo supposed to implant 5 days post transfer, wondering if it didn't even reach blastocyst stage before then :'(

    Maria - Iím glad your looking after yourself. What Iím not sure of is how they can know it was a failed implantation from hcg levels. All the hcg levels can tell you is whether you are pregnant or not. Well thatís my understanding anyway, Iím not a fertility specialist obviously. Will you have a follow up appointment with them to discuss further?

    Fyfey- i think my lining had to be below 4.5 start. It was 4.3 and day 4 of my cycle (because day 2/3 fell over the weekend) and I remember my nurse saying it was good theyíd scanned me on day 4 as it might not have been thin enough sooner. Good luck today.

    Afm - Iím now 9dp5dt. Iím trying to keep the addiction to POAS in check. I only allowing it every other day. The second line is very much there. All pink and solid so I donít expect to see much progression really. Iím more just checking itís still there. My OTD is Monday so still a way off. Iíve had a little nausea. One of my dogs vomited yesterday and I immediately started heaving whereas normally I could clean it up fine. Boobs arenít as sore as they were at 4/5dp5dt but I figure these things probably fluctuate.

    Xx

    Maria hopefully you can chat it through with your clinic but sometimes even good grades embryos donít implant for lots of reasons. Iím glad you have 2 frosties left.

    Tickety great news the line is still there. Very much agree symptoms fluctuate and it doesnít mean much.

    Leanne good luck with your transfer tomorrow.

    ATM I had my transfer this morning. Took a bit longer as my uterus is so retroverted they couldnít get the catheter round the corner. In the end emptying my bladder was the solution. It had expanded 80% which I think is ok. Now the dreaded wait!

    and Fyfey I hope the scan went ok?

    Mouse congrats on being pupo. hope your taking it easy. Whens your OTD/
    Fyfey - good luck for your scan.
    Wobbly -  How are you doing?
    Ticketyboo - I had a severe POAS addiction with my daughter. I started testing after 4 days after transfer. I just wanted to see that second line with the trigger. Then i tested at least once a day (sometimes more) till i had our heartbeat scan. So one test every other day isnt bad at all and it helps keep your mind at ease.
    Supermaria - hope your doing okay and you get a chance to speak to your clinic soon
    Skyblue - how are you doing?
    Hope everyone else is doing okay
    AFM - Got a call from the embryologist this morning. My transfer appointment is 11;30 tomorrow as long as my embryo survives the thaw. They'll call around 9 to let me know. Just wish i could fast forward to tomorrow now

    Hope it goes well Leanne. Glad they are calling you either way. I spent the whole train journey this morning wondering if I was going to get a call to turn around.

    Think my OTD is next Saturday but I wonít last that long and will likely test on Thursday. I need to make sure I get some medication in ready to go straight into another fresh cycle if this doesnít work.

    Does anyone have any info on frozen blast expansion. Am unsure of whether 80% is good or just ok. Probably doesnít matter too much as what will be will be but just curious.

    Hi

    I would like to join as I am hoping for a transfer on Monday. I had a call today to say 6 out of the 9 eggs had fertilised and fingers crossed an embroyo or two makes it to day 5 or 6.
    All the best  :)
