I've got a question for both Bex & Lisa, who both just had BFP.
Bex i noticed from your earlier posts that you had grade 2 and grade 3 embies put back, My clinic grades 1 as the best and 4 as the worst, but i know some clinics grade the other way round. My question is which way does your clinic grade?
Lisa you had a 7 cell & 8 cell put back, have long did you have to wait after EC before ET? my clinic has never given me the option of waiting more than a day.
Well I'm now on day 11pt and all I can say is it doesnt get any easier!!
Still getting a few AF type pains and a bit of backache so still not very optimistic at getting a positive result!
As I've said before my clinic doesnt test until day 20pt but as this falls next Sunday I've got to wait until the Monday (18th April)!!
I'm debating whether to test myself but don't know if I could accept a negative, also not sure when its best to test, I've seen posts on this site where they've tested on day 12pt and got a positive but I wasnt sure if this was too soon to get an accurate result?
Joe to answer your question both times I have had ET they done it on day 3, but I think that is because of good embryo cells - they said I am always a candidate for blastocyst but cos I only get a few eggs they don't chance it. What cells did you get??
Joe and Amanda please don't worry to much about AF symptons I was convinced mine was coming and looks what happened, went to my clinic yesterday to pick up more Cyclogest and the nurse told me that Cyclogest give you AF symptons. So try and stay positve girls I know it's hard!!!
Joe - I had et on thursday, they put one 2 cell and one 4 cell embryos back. Had ec on Tuesday so they only waited for 2 days to put them back. On ec day they said et would be thurs or fri, they obviously chose the earlier day. But they did say they were good quality embryos.
I'm also worried about AF symptoms, I'm only on day 3 pt and have some mild AF type cramps. Do you really think that this is a side effect of the cyclogest? I'm getting quite worried about it but don't want to stress out too much.
Welcome Abbey I think I remember you from my last 2ww.
Laura I'm not too worried about AF pains as I had those with my BFP, but I'm also getting some real shooting pains, Which I dont remember from last time, so that's why I suppose I'm not feeling that confident.
Cyclogest defo has those side effects.
thanks Joe, that's reassuring. I have had shooting pains around the ovaries since last weekend but these were similar to ovulation pains that I normally get each month. They were worse than normal due to the stimming I imagine but have now subsided. I get the odd one now and again.
Just a quickie to say that my horse in the Grand National came 4th today, didnt really win much money, I only put money on it because of the name 'IT TAKES TIME'!! Rather apt for all us girlies don't you think?
