Re: Success stories in early 40s

Thanks ladies. I pointed this ridiculous correlation to 2 REs yesterday. On one breath they tell you that there is a less than 5 per cent chance of success at 43 and in the next breath they tell you that they will not put back more than 2 because of the risk of multiple births. This is a ridiculous ...

Re: Success stories in early 40s

I got my period today so no luck round 2. I think I am better this time....kind of expected it at my age. I am upset, but I am a bit philosophical. I had a glass of wine tonight and I am planning the next steps. I have asked a couple of clinics whether they would consider transferring more than 2 em...

Re: Success stories in early 40s

Thanks Kynlee and you're welcome to crash any time.... I did a POAS this morning at 4.24am because I am a OCD'd masochist who can't control myself. After 3 minutes up came the glaringly black letters and those 2 familiar words: NOT PREGNANT. Sure, it's only 6dp5dt but.... I am getting stomach crampi...

Re: Success stories in early 40s

I was told that there was nothing to freeze today... Seems a bit of a let down. 12 eggs, 9 fertilised. At 3 days I had 3 more than 8 cells, 2 8 cells, 1 7 cell and 1 6 cell. On day 5 I had 2 blasts, 2 almost blasts, 3 compacting morulas.... And today nothing? I suspect that the clinic has certain cr...

Re: Success stories in early 40s

While we were waiting for the transfer DH and I decided that the next step is the USA if this doesnt work. Too many " can't do this, can'...
