    Good morning, ladies,

    I wanted to introduce your newest moderator of this forum - slyder!

    He is a well known and regular contributor to this thread, and our very first ever active male member of the LT forums. You all know him already, so I'm sure his new role here will be very welcomed. I am incredibly pleased that he's agreed to join the team and help out around here.

    So be gentle everyone (or not! Lol!), but do feel free to contact him with feedback, comments or suggestions, as you would me.

    Welcome Slyder!

    I knew there'd be a way to make him hang around!

    Good news today... 10IU of lucrin has done the trick, and I start stims tomorrow. I'm still in a state of shock that my body has decided to do the normal thing first up for a change. Estimated EPU is Monday 26th of November... work is just going to love it!

    Well its all over for me.

    We got a call at about 3.30 whilst doing some shopping. as soon as i heard it was my specialists voice and not the lab I knew it was bad news. 6 out of our 10 embies fertilised and made it to day three which is great but they all failed the biopsy at the first stage. So no transfer for us this year.

    We have to go back in about 3-4 weeks to discuss our plan of attack. He still wants to do another stim cycle but push me a bit harder to get more eggs...ah well....I guess it wasn't meant to be.

    Sorry for no personals tonight guys, just gonna go bury my head for a while.

    Mel, me too. Really sorry it hasn't worked out this time. I think what your FS is saying is sensible - if you can get more eggs next time (not that this yield was poor by any means) then you'll have a better chance percentage wise.

    I'm not sure what the issue is that has led to your PGD, but genetics are a funny thing. DW's paternal side carries the albinism gene which is an autosomal recessive gene that both parents must carry in order for the offspring to potentially acquire the abnormality. In the case of autosomal recessive, with both parents as carriers, there is a one in four chance of the child acquiring that problem. With her grandparents' three kids, two ended up with albinism and one didn't. Statistically, they should've only had one child with it, or even none. On the other hand, a different couple with the same genetic structure may have not even had the issue arise. So the point I am trying to make is that for each time you do PGD, you may get some statistically wacky results. Next throw of the dice may yield the complete opposite, and it's very unlikely you'll strike the same stats twice. I hope this helps in some small way.

    Slyder, you're starting to sound like a science/maths teacher there! As I'm both, I'm going to give you a gold star for being 100% correct in your explanation of both the science behind the genetics and the maths behind the probability stuff. Yes, I'm in a silly mood today - too much sugar!

    Glad I have your seal of approval, BW!

    Mel, I wanted to add that although I'm definitely no expert in the field, and you probably know a hell of a lot more about genetics than I do, we have been down the genetic diagnosis road and I've read a huge amount of information on a range of genetic abnormalities - both autosomal recessive and autosomal dominant, so if you'd like to bounce any ideas off me I'd be more than happy to listen.

    Oh Mel i am so sorry hun i like the sounds of slyders stats and you definately deserve the dice to roll you way! Im thinking of you and i hope the FS has some answers for you.

    BW & BG - Glad you are both happy with your news and congrats

    Odette - Oh hun i hope these symptoms are a sign of something fantastic!! Good luck and i hope you dont go to insane with KC week (i love that name!)

    Ellie - Hi Hun!! Lol atthe snoring not so good about the snake! Glad to hear everyone is safe and sound.

    Hi Lou, Ann, Holly and anyone i may have missed

    well finally had enough today and close friend rang to tell me she is pregnant and well it kicked my butt into gear ive booked in with FS for tomorrow afternoon to find out what happened with crazy AF! I was sure i had ovulated but oh well CD47 today and ive had enough i want to have another go b4 xmas! So hopefully some answers tomorrow. Sorry for the vent, that crazy ache you get when someone tells you they are pregnant... just never goes away.

    Also had something interesting to share... i also heard today a friend of mine has been TTC #2 via AC and they have decided they cant handle the emotional rollercoaster anymore and have decided her DH is going to have the snip so they know they definately cant have kids and they is no more trying and hoping. I can completely understand this decision.. but was wondering what you ladies thought?

    I'm having an absolute shocker lately. I can't even seem to do a lucrin injection without pain. Tonight's bled heaps and came up into an instant bruise! Massive lump on my belly, which DH is most impressed with. I've only ever got lumps from trigger injections before!

    In contrast, my 300IU injection of puregon went in relatively ok... it at least hasn't left a bruise or a lump, while the 10IU of lucrin did!

    I think I need to go back to injection classes! My tummy is going to look dreadful after all this if it continues!
