I'm here! Inconceivable and beyond is me! I had 5 natural MCs and 1 DE MC! Here to cheer for everyone unless I can convince the hubby for another round!

Congrats on being PUPO!

Hi Lorna congratulations on being PUPO

we've been trying to conceive for over five years now, I have old eggs & my DH has motility problems. We've now finally ready to go down the donor egg route and I go to Serum in December for my transfer

Hi everyone, great to meet you all

Wow we are all on different parts of this long journey.

Jooba and Crystal hi from downunder Jooba huge congrats always love hearing a positive outcome that is fantastic news. I have to say NZ is not much different from Aussie, you can either wait for a clinic recruited donor which can take up to three years as there are not many out there or go 'hunting' for one. I created a facebook profile which was anonymous asking for a wonderful person to be our ED, at first we received lots of response but that all soon dried up. Then when I signed up to Egg Donors Australia and NZ on facebook there was a wonderful lady on there looking to find another couple to donate to so I approached and well here I am PUPO. She is such a gorgeous person we feel so lucky and praying this works.

I have said we tried for 11 years with 2 m/c and an ectopic along the way. This time last year we had 2 cycles of IVF both producing only cumulus cells and no eggs..that is when our FS said we need an ED. I was also told at this stage I had a low AMH however I have since had it retested and it was more than normal

Anyway enough babbling welcome aboard ladies, look forward to following your stories

Good morning lovely ladies since we've all had cycles just wondering what your clinics recommended for stopping progrsterone?
My Reproductive Immunologist suggests starting to ween at 12 weeks with being off at 16 weeks, this makes me a little uneasy because my placentas should be making all the progesterone by then. I agree with previous losses I should ween but 16 weeks seems excessive... Any thoughts or ideas?

Lorna, when is your test day? Very exciting!!

I do my BT next Wednesday and I will resist temptation to POAS!!

I have been told that I will stop the all the progesterone tablets and pesseries on week 12. There was no mention of weaning!

Crystal I think the concern is with not having enough. Are twins smaller / delayed growth than singleton? If you come off too soon and they aren't making enough that would be worrisome.

Lorna, I've never been told to come off all at once. I've been told to half the dose of everything (estrogen & progesterone) between 10-12 weeks.

Yes in my natural pregnancy 12 weeks and my DE cycle 12 weeks too! Was worried so I weened off it slowly!

Some clinics check progesterone level in the first trimester and some even early second!

Oh ok interesting, 2Have this was for a singleton as well which is what raised my interest. It's always been a. Part of my protocol to start weening at 12 and be done by 16 weeks? I've never had any issues with progesterone and I'm on whopping dose of 1200mgs a day.

Lorna, you have more patience then me I'm a POAS addict lol
