hello ladies

I have created a new home for you all lucky number 7! The other thread is getting a bit long now. Wishing you all lots of luck and happy cycling in Spain.

Lots of baby dust to you all, hoping to see lots more BFPs in the coming weeks and months.

How many days post transfer are you? The most important thing is it doubling.
My clinic test on day 8 post transfer and mine was 67.

I'm 9 days past. But cannot see if it doubled as I fly to Ireland on Saturday for Christmas. The clinic said not to worry that it was optimal.

The starting value isn’t as important as it doubling but if you can’t get repeat bloods then there isn’t much to know.
Maybe when your back get them checked again and roughly work out what they should be. I had my bloods done every 4 days until my viability scan 🤣😂

My previous clinic said over 25 was pregnant on two weeks after egg collection and you need to track how it doubles. Xxx

On both my pregnancies I had a scan at 5+5 just because I was impatient and worried after having a MC at 10wks so I had weekly scans until 12wks (yes I’m a bit neurotic but I own it) 🤣

How are you feeling Bailey?
How’s everyone else I really struggling the time of year doesn’t help.
Can I ask what people did about how many embryos to transfer. I could a DET form to sign from IB yesterday. It’s says to transfer two against medical advice but the doctor has recommended to transfer two. They have come back and said to transfer two puts you at a 30% risk of multiples. I’m confused. I have only one PGS tested and the other 5 are not and a mixture of grades. I’m 40 and been TTC for 8 years so Trying everything! Xx

Bailey..got everything crossed for you that this is the one that sticks  ^pray^ also i did a pg test every other day to see thd lines getting darker so if you can't get bloods done this could help give you a little insight  :)

CMA, i was 43 and requested 2 embryos as i'd 3 failed attempts and multiple miscarriages, they explained the risks and i said was happy to take them. So it's up to you, if you end up with Twins is that an issue for you? If your not wooried about carrying and bringing twins then go for it. My 2 are hard work but we completed our family in one hit so in that sense it has been great (no more ivf)  so really is up to you. Good luck in what route you take and the best of luck.

And Merry Christmas and a mass sprinkle of baby dust to you all, hopefully 2019 will make you all the mummies you deserve to be
😘😘😘😘😘

Merry Christmas everyone . . And to whoever mentioned the under 35 donor stats and normal or abnormal. . Remember what happened to me first baby. Got the same convo about 30 and under and low risk etc. baby turned out very abnormal. Not just a little but 3 markers of abnormal. Fem donor was 30, male donor 27. . Doesn’t mean you will have same outcome but don’t assume everything is alright. It’s a gamble you are playing as you know.
Second baby I had CCS tested and all is good.

Hi all, It's been a while since I've been on so I'm trying to catch up on where everyone has got to.
Bailey I'm so excited to see you get your BFP. Everything is crossed for you that this baby sticks and continues to grow.
Onesock, how exciting you've reached the half way point of your pregnancy!

To all the other ladies old and new, hope you're all doing well and sending you all lots of baby dust! I know this time of year can be really hard for us so I wishing you all lots of strength to get through it.

Hi ladies so I'm back from Ireland and had a lovely Christmas. Did another pregnancy test and it's moved to 2-3 weeks so I'm delighted with that. Only another week to go for our first scan. Hope you are all keeping well and enjoying the holidays. Xxx
