I suspect you will be far happier with your little one than going on that cruise anyway Maybe do that for 41? How soon after #1 are you going to do another FET for #2?

well seeing as my frosties are with my 39 year old eggs I can wait a bit, seeing as its usually the eggs not the cooker thats the problem however I dont want to wait too long, I would have to be done breastfeeding to start the hormones so perhaps 8 months to a year later? also it might take a few transfers to get pregnant again, I will do SET do I have 7 tries.
did you get any frosties? are the twins your first children? this is my first.

oh thats interesting! so it confirms my hard egg belief!
ICSI was only $1200 more so I said do it, and to all. why waste the chance of good eggs going to waste. I had 20 mature eggs and ended up with 10 blastocysts. Im sure it would have been a lot less if we hadnt ICSId them all. they should do it more often, I see lots of people on here who have a bad fertilization rate which could have been improved if they just ICSId at the start.

sarah-I plan on getting or renting a doppler, I forgot, when can you usually pick up the heartbeat on one of those?

it really depends on the model, you would need a sensitive one. my midwife picked up mine at 10 weeks (she said its 50/50 that early) and I heard mine on the rented one at 11 weeks. I rented as I wanted the midwife quality. quite a few of the girls like the sonoline I think its called for purchase.

I bought the sonoline but I think my fattitude is preventing me from hearing it! I've been so frustrated and cried both times I tried. I just wanna hear this bubba's heartbeat but I can't!! I am 10w2days....

Sarah - I wanted to ICSI at least half but I kind of wanted to do some natural to confirm my suspicions about it being an egg/sperm issue. With only 2 of 13 fertilizing that way I suspect we would likely never have gotten a bfp without IVF. As it was only 7 of 13 fertilized with ICSI (2 others were damaged in the process) so our fertilization rates aren't that great even with ICSI. I'm a big advocate of ICSI, especially if you don't have a lot of eggs to work with. Why risk it, ya know?

The twins are my first. We didn't end up with any frosties. 9 fertilized total. We put back 3 and they said 3 more made it to blast but weren't of high enough quality to freeze. Oh well... Guess if we want to try again it will be full IVF. I'm hoping for one of each so there won't be as much pressure to try again though. I've always wanted 3-4 but I can live with 2 rather than risk ohss again. If we do IVF again I'll start at a lower dose. I'd rather have half the eggs or less than repeat the ohss.

Dis3tnd its still very early, my midwife picked mine up at 10 weeks but that was a midwife quality machine and she said 50/50 chance. dont give up! it takes a good 5 minutes for me to find mine as it seems to pick up in a different area each time.

Yea DH says to be patient and we'll eventually find it. He said in practice they never even try it this early, and that yesterday he had a patient at 13 weeks who it took him over 5 minutes to find and even then only got it for a few seconds. I'm having a hard time being patient though - I tried for 10 minutes last night and then gave up.

My midwife wouldn't even attempt to look for HB with the doppler. She said after 12 weeks. I know a lot of women find the HB early with the Sonoline B, but not everybody does.

Also, I know there are different probes for different people and stages.

I plan on getting one, but I keep putting it off.
