Woohoo!! That gives you a lot of chances for success. Your future baby is most likely one of those embryos! Good luck~ I hope you get your sticky baby sooner rather than later.

Thanks LAR!!! Hopefully our future BABIES are in the bunch...got my day 3 update and all 22 embryos are “dividing beautifully” according to the embryologist!

How are you doing?? Good to hear from you!

That's exciting! And yes, you're right, I should have said babies. How many do you and DH want?

I am doing ok. I thought I had to wait until the end of February to try again, but it is actually the end of January/beginning of February. I am looking forward to trying again! Still haven't decided if I will start mini IVF right away or not.

Forgive me if you already wrote about this. I haven't read all the entries.. how is your sister-in-law doing? And how is DH's job situation going?

OMG I am freaking out. Freaking out. AF is late, I'm on day 30. I've never gone beyond 28 days before (ever). And my spotting fricken stopped. It stopped. I've never had spotting stop before. I can't test till tomorrow. Test was negative on Friday. With the spotting and AF cramps I thought for sure AF was coming. Now I don't know what to think

That’s great LAR! I think you should totally go for mini-IVF if your insurance covers it and you are a candidate. Not that my insurance covered my IVF cycle but if it had we may have gone with it a little sooner.

DH and I are thinking 2 or 3, but who knows! He is 1 of 8 children and always wanted a big family for himself. I think 4 would be my limit. If we are lucky we will end up with 10 or 11 blastocysts to send for PGS testing and half of those will be PGS normal (IF we are lucky)! There is also the risk of losing some as a result of the biopsies, freezing and thawing, but that risk is small. We decided that if we have extra embryos after our family is complete we will donate them to a couple in need. If all goes well we will be doing a FET around mid December.

My sister in law is doing a little better for the time-being. As you know the cancer was progressing even further and her last resort was this brand new first in humans trial drug which she started a few weeks ago. She is already able to be off of oxygen support and said she is feeling pretty good. Fingers crossed her next scan shows stability or even improvement. Thank you for asking!

DH started a new job in August and is very happy there. It’s a much better work environment and he is treated much better. I’m so glad because he was pretty unhappy at his last job but didn’t want to leave until he had no choice.

I just realized I created this thread (well, the original one before we moved it to LTTTC) over a year ago. Crazy! I sure didn’t expect to still be here over a year after starting Clomid but I’m really glad I’ve gotten to know you ladies and that we have been able to support each other through some tough times. Hoping 2018 is our lucky year!

Belle that's very exciting!! finger crossed for you!! I am for sure going to try some of your supplements!!!

Ask sorry to hear about your sister in law - I didn't know she was ill. That trial sounds very encouraging. It's so amazing what they can do nowadays! I think it's really lovely that you are thinking of donating embryos - I am sure that karma knows things like that and will take that into account! You deserve this to work and I really hope it does!

I've finally caved and started a ltttc journal :/ might stop me ranting and rambling everywhere else!!
