Hi bumski
Glad everything is finally working out for you.
I'm going to have 2 embies put back. Clinic is advising I have just one as I have quite a risk of twins. My mother is an identical twin, she has non identical twin cousins and my grandfather (fathers side) was also an identical twin. Reason I am still having 2 embies back anyway is I asked myself one question. What would be worst? 1. falling pregnant with twins (or triplets if both embies stick and one splits) or 2. having only one embie put back and the cycle failing. Of course, the cycle failing would be much much worse and I wouldn't have any problem with twins or triplets. Got family and friends around to help but the only thing that I'm apprehensive about with multiple pregnancy is the birth. I really want a drug free natural birth but of course the is more chance of c-section with multiple pregnancy but it's a chance I'll take to have healthy children.

What about you? How many embies you having put back or have you not decided yet?

Wow bumski! You've had an up an down time recently, how handy about your DHs work shuts down! I have never seen all my mess in one go, I can imagine is quite overwhelming! I'm allowed 1 or 2 as its my 3rd time, had 2 last time and didn't work so will prob have 2 again hopefully. X

G3mz- don't be worried about needles it's funny how quick u get used to it! Though by the end your sick of it too! I'm sorry I never noticed your signature before, 2 lots of twins, wow, and I'm so sorry for your losesyou have had terrible multiples experiences! It does worry me putting two back but I think with me it would be a very low chance of 2 taking... X

Oh dear try and wish still no AF! Where is it?! X

Hi becktoria! Welcome. I just chose a clinic and made an aoiment but took my letter from the Nhs FS saying that we needed ivf. (nhs wouldn't fund us as DH has children(well young adults) from previous marriage).This is my 3rd time egg sharing so any questions just ask! X

Exactly what I'm wondering!
Been recording my cycles since Jan 2010 and I am usually between 28 and 32 days with odd cycles of 26-27 days and one cycle 2 months ago that was 34 days! Its only being another long cycle because I'm waiting for it! But at least with you all starting a little before me I have more of you to learn from and ask for any advice

Anne called me from LWC asking if I have started bcp yet!!! I had to say "Not yet. Hoping for period any day, I'm now CD33 which is unusual for me!" She said that was typical and the recipient is already taking bcp! Everything is just waiting on my period!

WHERE IS IT?? POAS this morn just incase and of course it was negative so starting to get quite grumpy and short tempered today as I'm fed up of the waiting! My temp isn't even dropping yet!

Hi all well i'm going to an open day at LWC Swansea next week - very excited as feel like at long last will get some help and answers.

I'm considering egg sharing too...does it greatly reduce the cost of treatement? does it delay treatment? Gosh sooooo many questions!

Also ladies how are you finding the care at LWC Swansea. I live near Llandeilo so its a 50 min trip for me! All worth it for the BFP tho!

Best of luck to you all!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Try and wish fingers crossed the witch hurries up for you!!!

And at last we have found a new home but with not so great timing we are due to move a week before my egg retrieval and transfer But I suppose time will fly by with being so busy!!
Really feel for you tryandwish! Hope it arrives very soon!!

STILL NO AF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now on CD34 and extremely frustrated and getting pissed off! It must arrive soon as I've had the back ache all day and got the crampy feeling this evening and wanting to eat chocolate. Temp dropped a little this morning so hope it will be lower in the morning.

Thanks for the hug g3mz. Wish I was so busy to make the time fly!

Hi nimbec,
Thank you for the witch wishes
I find LWC great. Never been to another private clinic though so only got NHS to compare them to which doesn't set the bar very high. I first called them and had an info pack sent out to me, then visited them to discuss options, then had to raise funds and got things underway with the initial consultation. The only difficulty I had was the timing. Had to wait 2 weeks for right CD to have AMH bloods done. Then had AMH repeated as it was low first time so that was more waiting for the right CD. But got all the tests done now. All the staff are really kind and easy to speak to.
Egg sharing does reduce the cost. They will tell you more and give you a better idea of prices tailored to your situation but I have paid 325 for initial consultation, 180 for AMH bloods (90 each and usually need only 1 test), 75 HFEA license, and we need ICSI which is 750 for egg sharers (normally 900). The standard IVF fee of 3,025 is not paid for by the egg sharer.
You have a 50 mins trip to LWC. I wish! I live in Moylegrove near Cardigan and it takes almost 2 hours for me to get there (it's 50 mins just for me to get to work in Haverfordwest!). But like you said "All worth it for the BFP tho!"
Let us know how you get on at the open day. X
