Hi Folks
Yesterday was day of egg collection so waiting to hear today how many Donor eggs fertilised with hubbies sperm. Fingers crossed. My lining was 9.8 yesterday and I started using the gel. Did anyone get any side effects from the gel? 
I have Dr. Alper Eraslan. Has anyone else had him?

Anyway, it is very quiet over here now. We were the only people in a few restaurants over last few days. The flights in have been cancelled For about a week. Restarting on the 16 Sept. They are just letting two planes in a day to TRNC. Transfer day is the 16th. We fly home on 17th.

Hope to be as lucky as you have all been. I will let you know.

Mommakenny I just had 7 days as from Northern Ireland. They are talking about letting people stay in Airbnb but using a tagging system so they don’t breach quarantine. It is crazy over here due to COVID.

Hi All
Thank you for your good wishes MommaKenny. I am now in the dreaded two week wait - day 8 after Transfer.
We got 13 eggs, 11 were mature and we ended up with 4 grade A embryos. So I transferred two and froze two.
I had very strong cramping after transfer which I am hoping was implantation as I did not experience anything at all with previous IVFs. I have not had a period yet. Fingers crossed it stays that way. Blood tests are booked for 28 and 30 September 2020.

Thanks again for all the baby dust! Good luck VanGn.

SingleMommaBe
What a wonderful Christmas present your lovely baby will be  :).

Hi Folks
I got my BFP :). I have had some light pink staining and cramps since yesterday so a bit worried re:miscarriage. I took second blood test last night so just have to wait until tomorrow to get next HCG result. Dunya have said this will let me know either way if it falls or rises. I am praying that it rises. Now that I am finally pregnant I realise how nerve wracking it is. I don’t think I will be able to relax until the baby is born if I can get that far. Say a wee prayer or positive affirmation for me.

Hi all. My partner and I are looking at undergoing treatment at Dunya, having previously cycled at Dogus the past couple of years. We unfortunately lost twin girls earlier this year due to prematurity, and have decided to use a surrogate this time as my partner has now been diagnosed as having cervical incompetence and we cannot risk the heartbreak of going through another loss.
Has anyone here cycled at Dunya using a surrogate? We have been quoted an extra 1500 euro, for what I can gather seems to just be an administrative cost - it seems rather excessive and is the only thing really stopping us from going ahead!

Sorry for not coming back to forum sooner. My second blood test confirmed the pregnancy. I have an early scan at 7 weeks tomorrow. Ruthannah congratulations to you too. Hope your scan goes well.

LJ82, I also got a quote for 2,250€ more than they state on their website. I don’t know if the prices on the website are not up to date or what is the reason for the discrepancy, but it’s definitely doesn’t give me much encouragement to go ahead not to mention the cost. I was with New Life, and prices were transparent and clear, they were no surprises or unreasonable fees.

Hello everyone
I am also sorry for not returning sooner with an update. But here we go.
So i had a tandem cycle and got 7 very good embryos,(the embryologist wouldn't tell me what grade she said they were the best, well she seemed very pleased so I stopped pushing)
I got 2 put back and 5 are in the freezer.
On day 6 with no symptoms whatsoever i decided to just check so as to cancel the cycle but i was shocked to see those 2 lines without even waiting for a few minutes. so i did a few more to be sure and yep definitely positive.

Confirmed 2 embabies at my 6 week scan but one was like a week behind.
Then following week had a bleed which wasn't bad but had to have a onother scan which showed both babies almost similar gestation days so was pleased with that

Now i am almost 10 weeks and i know i am not in the green yet (you can only cross over when you hold them in your hands that much i know)

I also started a new job which is quite  demanding and am thinking seriously of quitting, with so much we have gone through I am at that point where i am thinking i can always have another job but i have to hold this so dearly.

Anyway i don't want to make it too long but just wanted to give you a quick update now that we are getting into our second lockdown 

I do wish everyone the best and if i can answer any questions about my cycle or dunya please pm me or ask away.
God bless

Ruthannah OmG huge congratulations!

Fenchurcheast My dear so happy for you!  We have lots of wonderful news all around!  Wait I have to read your updates!

LJ82 Hi dear, unfortunately I haven't experienced having a surrogate.  What did your coordinator at Dunya say?  Best you let them explain the entire process to you dear.  I think it has something to do with local laws and laws in your home country.  Where are you from?

Dear Ruth I just love long stories!  Thank you for sharing!  How is your work?  Are you adjusting?  I think work is good too but if you find it too stressful too early in the pregnancy and money is not an issue then maybe another leave would be best.

Hello,

Dropping in. Seems lots of news here, can hardly keep the pace! :) But really so happy for you lovely ladies!

Fenchureast, Ruthannah, huge congratulations dear!

LJ82, haven't tried surrogacy but I can relate. I'm a single mum but I have someone (a doula) staying with me for the duration of the pregnancy.
Meantime I can send you the link from Dunya re surrogacy: https://www.dunyaivf.com/en/surrogacy/

Been a couple of weeks since visiting the board, so thanks to all that replied regarding surrogate costs. Have spoken to our coordinator, and it is due to registration with the ministry apparently.... Didn’t have the additional costs with Dogus, but hey ho, Dunya do seem rather professional which is reassuring.
Our treatment now is on hold until we find out what’s happening with quarantine in the new year, as we can’t expect our surrogate to spend another 7 days locked in a hotel room! If there’s no change we’ll probably have to look at Spain.
Congrats to those with BFPs!!
