Lucy- Don't be nervous, when I was pregnant with my twins I had every color of blood from dark brown, bright red, and even tissue looking and my boys are almost 4. Its actually very normal to bleed in early pregnancy.

Thanks for your optimism! When I was pregnant with my first I had a 'period' and didn't know I was pregnant until morning sickness kicked in at 7 weeks, so I should know myself that bleeding is normal, but I just panic! Haha

Really sorry, Lucy.

Hope the next round is a success!

I had my baseline ultrasound on Tuesday and started Estrace yesterday. Transfer is 2.5 weeks away. Eeek!

Lucy I'm so sorry for your bad news. We are with you Its encouraging that we've had 2 positives recently. IVF really does work miracles, just wish it was the first time every time

Ask, keep us updated on your progress! That step is next for me so I have no idea what to expect What is estrace and are you having side effects?

Update on my 21 eggs: they did half natural fertilization and half ICSI because I was borderline for needing the ICSI at all. Only 2 of 10 natural eggs got fertilized! 9 of 11 ICSI are fertilized. So that answers a lot of questions for us about why we werent getting pregnant. 10 eggs is about a year of trying naturally! We have 11 little embryos growing to day 5. We wont get another update until they freeze them over the weekend. My hubby is very impatient to know how many we get. Does anyone know how the "grade" them at the end?

Emily - that’s great that you did ICSI on half and that it answers some questions for you. We did ICSI too because my clinic requires it when you do PGS testing. We had 22 out of 24 fertilize with ICSI and 16 make it to blasts and biopsy for PGS. The grading is done in 3 parts usually. The first number tells you how expanded the blastocyst is (4=fully expanded), the next is a letter A-C and tells you about the cells in the inner cell mass, and the last is a letter A-C (A is best, B is good, C is fair) that tells you about the cells in the triphectoderm - the outer cells which will eventually form the placenta.

Estrace is estradiol (estrogen). My only side effect right now is headaches. I’ll let you know how it goes! I increase my dose in 3 more days and then 5 days before transfer I’ll start the PIO shots.

Keep us posted! Hoping you get lots of blasts! Are you doing a fresh transfer? Your protocol will be a bit different than mine if that’s the case!

Awesome, thanks Ask! I hope your headaches subside. Maybe Tylenol is allowed? I'm doing frozen, same as you. Transfer is tentatively scheduled for 12/18, which means we may be able to test on Christmas morning!! Oh what a Christmas present that would be...

Aw Lucy, I'm so sorry. Glad you're ready to keep going!

Emily - That's great! It's such a relief to have a whole batch of embryos sitting around. I hope they all keep going strong!

I'm still awaiting a period so we can embark on the next round. My clinic called today to have me go in for bloodwork tomorrow. If my progesterone is low enough, we may move forward without a period. On the one hand, I would like for my body to get back to normal before trying again, but on the other hand, a January cycle would place a lot of the appointments and stuff over winter break for me (I'm a teacher), and that's too good to pass up. So, I hope I get to move forward one way or another.

How's everyone else doing?
