Re: Ghost - Help

Ghost - Thank you so much for your reply. I have been stalking the boards hoping you would respond quickly. And, again you didn't disappoint !! It if funny, I talk to DH about you and he even said - when we get home "ask Ghost's opinion" - so I did. He said you don't believe your RE but you believe ...

Ghost - Help/updated

I just did the ET today and am depressed at the embryo results. I had 3 transfered - 1 was an 8 cell, but the lowest rating of 1 - so pretty much rule that one out. The other 2 were the highest grade of 4 (on a 4 scale), but were at a 10 cell. I always thought that 10 cells were too much for a 3 day...

Re: Massage before ET-Ghost?

Thanks for the reply. My massage therapist knows what we are doing and thinks it OK and my acupuncturist thinks it is OK. I was just want to make sure I am doing anything drastically wrong.

Massage before ET-Ghost?

What are the thoughts on getting a massage the day before ET? Not a deep tissue - just a nice relaxing one.

Anyone - Ghost - opinions please.

Re: Ghost Question

Ghost - just an update. Of the 5 eggs - 4 were mature (the 13 didn't make it like I thought) - and 3 fertilized (guess the 14 was there either). We will be transfering the 3 on Friday. Hope it being Good Friday helps us (the baby we lost at 36 weeks came from 3 eggs being transfered 2 years ago on E...

Re: Ghost Question

Thanks Ghost, It is nice to hear you thoughts. I am glad to hear that triggering at a 17 is good. As for the E2 dropping - I can just hope that a drop of only 9 is not that bad. As for the ganirelix it can't be because of cost because I have 6 shots (got them before our insurance ran out). My LH is ...

Ghost Question-Update

Ghost - I have mroe questions for you. My past cycles my RE had me take ganirelix around day 6/7 of stims and then trigger 2-4 days later (my LH runs high - that is why I was told he gave me ganirelix). This time I did not go on ganirelix and I triggered about 2 days earlier. The concern I have is t...

Re: Show some love for Ghost

I will gladly join the crowd to Thank Ghost. I have learned more then I ever wanted to know by reading his responses. Like it was said before, we may not like the answer, but you provide the truth in a way that makes it easier to accept.

Ghost - Fertilization Update/Question??

Ghost, Thanks for your response about my fertilization question. The update today is that NONE fertilized. The RE admits he has no idea why this happened - with ICSI done on the 5 the next day, there should have been at least something. He said he as never seen this before. After the insemination tr...

Ghost - Fertilization Question??

Ghost, I have a question about fertilization. The first 2 cycles we did ICSI since we only had 6 eggs and 4 eggs. The 3rd cycle we got 10 eggs so the RE did a split with ICSI and insemination. The results were equal 3 fertilized from each method - but the insemination was 3 out of 4 (there was 1 bad...
