Kristy I am so sorry for your BFN hun. We herts and essex ladies didn't have a good run did we - fx for us all for round 2. Are you funded, I hope so

School teacher - I'm short protocol too, not funded though I'm not sure why it failed, I had a 2day transfer of 2 embryos, one of which was grade 1. We did have some fertilization issues though, i got 24eggs but only 2 fertilised - which was a real shock.
Keep us updated on your cycle and good luck

Hey _Nell

Thank you No guess it just wasn't our time Yes I am NHS. So have 2 more fresh cycle tries.

Are you trying anything different this next cycle? I am waiting to hear if I can start in September. I really hope so.

I am starting acupuncture next Saturday and hope that may help a bit. I am not overweight but I would like to lose half a stone at least by end of August.

My eggies fertilised ok as we had ICSI, but the quality of the eggs were not great

Fingers crossed its 2nd time lucky for us xxx

Kristy, I'm not doing anything different really, I have no weight to lose and eat well, take my vits etc. DH is taking vits and cut alcohol.

I'm thinking of acupuncture, I didn't/don't believe in it tbh as the studies show no real evidence - BUT my lining was poor so it's worth a shot! I'm going to ask the clinic if there's one they can recommend/close by - i'm not sure about doing it while stimming/cycling though tbh. I might just try it beforehand and see what I think first.

Kirsty I am so sorry for bfn. Trust me, I know exactly how you feel. Don't worry we will be successful on our round 2.

Nell I'm excited that you are about to start round 2. All the best hun and I am sure you will make it this time round.

Schoolteacher you should be starting soon as they are normally quick in finding a match. They found me one in two days, maybe it's because of my ethnicity

As for me, I'm glad to say goodbye to July!! Its been a rollacoster full of emotions. Honestly I didnt think a failed ivf was going to hit me this bad. On top of it all, I have had 2 family members announce their pregnancies and my best friend announced her pregnancy after trying for 2 weeks!!! I am happy for them but also full of envy that they didn't have to try too had. Within a week of finding out about my failed ivf, my company announced that I was one of the people being made redundant. But they changed their minds a few days ago and I still have a job for now.
I have gone from a person who has a lot of pma to an emotional wimp!!! Hubby has been great bless him, he was considering taking me to Cuba for a holiday but it won't work with ivf round two to contend with.

Now were are we going from here? Well we are going for our follow up in over a weeks time. Hubby and I are hopping to convince the clinic to put more than one embryo back to give us more chances. Hubby and I are looking to go on holiday on the 2ww to help me relax. It's looking that we start our next cycle in September depending on my next af.

Hope everyone is feeling positive for their ivf round xxx

P.S sorry for rambling on!!

Chichi, the BFN is hard isn't it? I felt bad, then better, then now there are days when I feel it hits me all over again.
I think a holiday in the TWW sounds lovely - I know I have to make more plans next time to keep my mind busy but be relaxed.

I might be wrong but I don't believe the clinic will budge on the 1 blasto policy for under 35's - though I too hope they do! I'm not sure if you're NHS funded but I know that restricts them as the NHS insists on only 1 embryo......though i'm private and it still made no difference. It sucks though for what we pay/go through tbh.

Hi Nell,

I know what you mean about the clinic not budging on the one transfer I was going to try my luck. I am doing my first nhs round.

Isn't it silly that the clinic doesn't do betas? I would prefare that to poas as I am tired of seing bfn.......anyway I gusse its all the same.

Nell when do you start down regulating?

I don't down reg Chichi. straight to stimms because of my low reserve.

I've got a week or so to wait for AF and then have my pre-checks (scan and bloods) to make sure i'm cyst free etc. They told me to prepare myself for not being able to cycle this time, as my body may not yet have recovered from IVF 1.

I know I am in shock They have been so great with allowing me time off for IVF and stuff all paid and not out of my holiday time. And now this

Really not my time. I got stuck in the head by a wasp Saturday too

Anyway back to baby stuff... I am going to try and beg H & E to put more than one in. IF more than one makes it. I know the NHS sometime allow it if the chances are very slim. I am waiting to hear how long I have to wait for my 2nd try.
