    Jules- Fantastic news on 7. Hope you are felling better now. I was really sick after my 3rd cycle. So please rest ok. Had to laugh about trigger. We had the same thing the first time. At least you could ring your clinic. All my triggers were out of clinic hours!
    Fertilise- divided and grow little emby's!

    Anne- bugger bugger bugger. Many hugs to you.

    Jules,

    I think Sheree (Magic) conceived her (now 4yo) DD on a Grade 3 emby. So don't give up hope. I was reading somewhere recently that a high grade, quickly developing embryo is usually a boy, and a slower, lower grade is a girl. Don't know how true it is, but makes it sound loads nicer that it may just be a few girl embryos taking their sweet time, like most women do! Lol!

    Yep, the two embies on my 4th IVF which resulted in a lovely DD were very poor quality. They were the only survivals of 5 embies "thawed" and were transferred because I was low-stimmed and wanted to give it "a go"...

    Jules, that is great news, hoping that everything goes well.

    Well for me more &%&*%%&%.

    Last Wed when I had my pre IVF ultrasound the sonographer told me that I was just about to O. Now 5 days later (today CD39) bloody AF shows up.(1 follie 30mm)

    I have missed our FET for this month, now I have to wait till the end of November.

    This is really pi$$ing me off!!!! Big time!!!

    I had no symptoms of the witch arriving, nothing. What the hell is going on with my body? Why can't my body just do as it is supposed to do?

    I hope everyone is having a better day

    Ann

    Hi Jules - sending heaps and heaps of your way - hoping those two tiny bubs are making themselves at home already.

    Hi ann - so sorry things aren't going to plan. This is a bugger of a road to travel on sometimes. Thinking of you and here's hoping for smooth sailing next cycle. xoxo

    Take care,
    Marg

    Hi Jules. Sending you heaps of Baby glue, so that those two little bubs can stick nice and firmly. Fingers crossed for a big BFP for you on 9 September.

    Update from me--- still no invoice. Will call MIVF tomorrow and find out what is taking so long. Nothing for us will start until we send any money, so would like to get things moving IYKWIM.

    Hey, where's Keen????

    I am actually doing something!

    After reading about Antonia Ruhl, we contacted her today, ordered some tonic bloody expensive, and we are flying down to Melbourne in a few weeks time to do work on our baby making!

    If the mountain wont come to me, by god I'll bloddy well go to her!

    I say thank god for income tax returns, by the time I finish with Antonia I'll be skint, but we've spent a $hitload on IVF with no luck so whats a bit more

    Yah, I'm feeling pretty good

    HI girls
    just sticking my head in to say hi.
    Jules - sending you :bluestick:
    Ann - I'll be really interested to see what you think in Melb. I'd been reading that other thread but thought both the one-time posters were a bit fishy and might have been surreptitious advertisements (not to mention having a very similar writing style) but was glad to see a more established BB member post too. I really really hope you do get a miracle.
