Bunny I hope so too, any chance any further embryos could form yet? Fab news on development of the ones at present!
Lovely they call with updates too!

Yes I have to call clinic on 9th and all my appointments will be made and I believe that's when I start down reg! I've never wished on AF so badly in my life 😜 It's very exciting but super exciting to hear all about your journeys on here too. Nice to focus on someone else for a change and not feel bitter about it. ( if you know what I mean?) x

It's transfer day today! Two are good quality and one average 😬

Dildoos I know what you mean and I'm glad you are focusing on positive thoughts! It's very strange after hoping af doesn't come for so long now wanting to hurry it! I can't wait for you to start!

Because I had icsi they know the next day whether fertilisation has occurred or not. If it hasn't then it won't. I don't know if it's different with standard ivf.

Go bunny embryos go!! Good implantation of you wouldn't mind embryos !
Hope all goes well and you do some good affirmations and resting of mind and body (well as much as that's possible!)
Are you going to freeze one fab embryo and implant the other two? X

Good luck with transfer day Bunny - how exciting. I didn't realise that they knew so soon with ICSI - so you'll know tomorrow if it worked?! That's crazy.

Dildoos - i know what you mean! The af to be able to start this cycle is the only one I've wanted to come in about 8 years!

I'm currently waiting to down regulate - I'm sniffing twice a day, and it's made me really snotty (sorry tmi!) now I sound like a coke addict!

I have my first scan to check down regulation on 14th, then transfer expected in last week of Feb. It still doesn't feel real. I'm not entirely sure when it'll sink in, even though I'm on my first meds, i think because it's the nasal spray and not injections, I'm still don't feel like I'm having IVF!

Yes I imagine it does feel so surreal, something you e wanted for a long time and so close, I bet you feel like your talking about someone else? It's not long now only about 3 weeks 😡 It's all whizzing by for us all. So lovely having you all to share it with too ☺️

Sorry I meant they know the next day if the eggs have fertilised and become embryos. I won't know if implantation has occurred until 13th Feb. The worst wait of all!

Oh - i see Bunny, i thought 'wow how lucky not having to endure the dreaded two week wait' lol

Did you need to down regulate before you started? Some clinics prescribe injections for down regulating, but i opted to do as few injections as possible and have the nose spray for this bit - but now i feel like I've got a full blown cold Sad but it's a common side effect and hopefully it will pass, I've heard some people get awful side effects like migraines etc, so a cold doesn't sound too bad in the great scheme of things!

Hope your all having a fab weekend!

Bunny - hope your resting how are you feeling? What meds are you having to take now?

Doom - have you managed to fill the forms out for your funding this weekend?

Pink- how's the cold like symptoms?

I am awaiting AF due on Thursday and willing it to hurry hurry hurry, spoke to clinic and get said they are dry busy and work backwards on dates so may have to wait another month before starting but to call when AF arrives to find out so FX I don't have to wait another month as should've started last month but we were awaiting access fertility set up and missed it 😣

Patience is coming too easily at the moment πŸ˜‚

If it's any consolation the wait to take an hpt next Monday seems like forever away!! Still it's quite nice imagining them in there. At least one might get comfortable I hope xx

Well, we've booked a ski holiday today, so that should keep my mind off the waiting for now.
