    Hi Ladies,

    Well transfer tomorrow. Am nervous and excited -actually probably every emotion I can describe. My little ones are doing well today. 3 are out now, but 7 are at early blastie and 1 is just behind. This is the first time I have had them grown to blastie on a fresh cycle. What so you all think? Do you think there is a chance the 7 will make it to blastie tomorrow? I would be so totally over the moon if this happened. After my 2 get transferred I will have 5 to freeze....couldn't ask for much more than that. The problem with me is that I lose so many in thawing...last time only 1 out of 6 frozen survived the thaw. So I know it sounds unrealistic to want 7 blasties tomorrow, but at least then I know I will get another transfer if needed.

    All my friends I will try to chat later. Am at my parents house and just wanted to check on you all.

    Have a good Sunday afternoon,
    Hugs Bel

    Linda- Thanks so much. Am really happy with the behaviour of the little ones so far. Last time I got a BFP was when they grew one of my frozens to blastie, so for me mentally even, blastie is the way to go. I know there is a lot of discussion on going to blastie and of course its personal, but my results so far indicate that's possibly what is best for us.

    Hope everyone else is having a cruisy night

    Hugs Bel

    JBM that sounds likea great idea I am going to start with that before the next cycle. Realy bad isn't it when I am in the TWW and I have already started thinking about the next cycle because I am sure this is not going to work. Hoping it is just a coping mechanism dont thinkI could deal with the disappointment again.

    Saph and Janet- I cannot recommend acupuncture enough. My 1st cycle I didn't know anything about the benefits of acupuncture and so cruised through without it-BFN. The next cycle I had acup twice a week leading up to transfer, an appointment the day before and then one immediately after...the result- BFP. Unfortunately I lost that little one but I would not go through a cycle now without having it. I swear by it. Also, believe it or not, I hadn't had AF for over 60 days after my first BFN and was beside myself as I wanted to start another cycle. My FS couldn't do anything because of all my levels and I was told I couldn't start til AF came. That day I had my first acupuncture apointment and spilled everything to my acup guru. He asked me "So do you want your period then"....I was like.."Of Course!!". Now I have to tell you if ever there was a sceptic, I was she. BUT...within 30 mins of my treatment ending I had AF. SERIOUSLY!! Then I went back the next week and told him I really had to have AF stop so everything could begin...after that day AF had stopped. This is all true really and I seriously would not do a cycle now without acupuncture. A lot of clinics now is the US won't treat you unless you are having acupuncture.

    The other thing is my acupunture man puts really small needles in my ears that stay there just to help with all the stress.

    I hope this encourages you to at least try it. I just went in with the frame of mind that it couldn't hurt.

    Sorry for my ramble but if I can help anyone to get that much longed for BFP with my story then the ramble is worth it!!

    10 hours til ET and am starting to get nervous... MUST get to bed!!

    Night night all

    Hugs Bel

    Default I think this is where I belong

    I know... I seem to be all over the place at the moment.... back and forth from thread to blog to nothing to thread.... I m leaving I m staying... I m all over the bloody place.... welcome to my head...

    I ve had a bit of a wake up call tonight...... THANK YOU MISS C

    So here I am. Part of me wants to put the whole TTC behind me... just say nooo too old... done my bit... have my 2 teenage sons.... etc... but the more I pushed that thought through the more pain I felt.

    So this is where my head is at now..... I m not ready to do another IVF cycle..... BUT.... i m just not ready to give up either. So I suppose I linger for a while... wait for the herbs to help hubbys swimmers and maybe go with IUI.

    SO I suppose this is my new home..... mind if I bring in a few things to make my stay comfy

    Morning All,

    ET this morning...Bring on the 2 little blasties!!

    Angel Babies- Welcome...bring in as much as you want with you!! Goodness knows I have. I wish you all the best for what you decide. I've told my DH I'll keep going with TTC until I feel I can. I definately won't stop before and I won't keep going when I've just had enough..but until then, I'll keep plodding along. Such a hard decision though. How do you ever stop when what is in your heart is a baby, and for you an addition to the family? It's a really tough call. I think though that to even have the strength to TTC and to be on this website offering and receiving support means that we are strong women and we keep facing hurdles and setbacks to achieve our dream. So all the very best. I'll be here for you too.

    I'll be joining the TWW thread later today..excting but also for me a bit scary, with reminders of the past. BUT will be still lurking round here making sure my friends are doing ok.

    So to all have a good day,

    HUgs Bel

    Hi Ladies,

    Well today went great.. Had 2 little ones put back in. One was a hatched blastie and the other was hatching. I have a really good feeling about this cycle. FS was extremely happy and the embryologists said our embies couldn't have behaved better. AND we have 4 x 6 day blasties to freeze definately, possibly 5. What more could we ask for??

    Smithy- You're an angel..will be seeing you in the TWW thread really soon. Looking forward to it.

    As for the acupuncture, my acup guru says you should have it all the way through pregnancy, usually once a month. Can help with birth as well..great news!

    So to everyone who has supported me in this thread, my most sincerest thanks. I'll still be here but am going to also move over to the TWW thread, which for me is only an 8 day wait...how lucky I am.

    I wish all of us BFP's really soon. Keep strong my friends.

    Hugs Bel
