7 eggs, much better than 3 from last cycle. Off for a nap now.

It pays to go back to back doesn't it? We just have to keep soldiering on. Good work Theia.

Theia- I hope you got a good fertilisation rate. You can have a rest tomorrow, awaiting day 3. My next step is Friday blood test, I hope my oestrogen is rising as it should. Hope you have treated yourself to a nice glass of wine or whatever your fancy is- what a great effort you have put in.

Hi blue lavendar, got the call today and all 7 have fertilised normally, can't ask for more than that! It just amazes me the difference between last cycle and this one, we used all the same doses and such a different result. Unfortunately due to a family emergency I haven't had time to sit back and rest but I'm planning some time off after surgery next month to relax and regroup. Thanks for being here for me, you've definitely helped keep me sane during this crazy process! Here's hoping we both get some good results on friday.

How did your results go BL?

well done Theia. I am so thrilled for you. I found when I was doing this 2 years ago and got a bad result the only thing that kept me going was to go back to back cycles and eventually I got there. So yes oestrogen is the highest its been on day 5,  so far, so good.  The dr did up the bemfola this time, so thats good. I'm thinking that you have past the day 3 update? How is that going. I hope everything is ok with the family emergency. You should take some time out to treat yourself and reflect on your hard work.

How are you Theia.

My EC will probably be next Monday. That means Tuesday wine time.

Sounds like things are progressing well BL, hope you get a few good ones.

From all 7 still going on day 3 (5 "on track"), only one made it to biopsy. Feeling quite down about it all at the moment.

Theia the 8 month old screaming at me for this computer is the only one that made it to biopsy.

I should also add that at the time I only had the 1 to biopsy, I was very disappointed. Since then I have had high FSH levels which have prevented me to start, had none to test by day 5 and had a cycle cancelled. The benchmark for day 5 is so high, so you are in with a very good chance.

Sorry to hear that, how many were you expecting? Will you get a fertilisation report or just wait for day 5?
