Congratulations hun so happy for you!!! I am currently 4 days past my 3 day transfer. Did you get any symptoms? I feel like it's not working x

I didn't feel anything apart from sore boobs at first. Bit of cramping mid way but convinced myself it was in my head then got some brown discharge at 8dp3dt which stopped after a morning. I dont think you can tell either way. The wait is awful but try not to test early if the hospital could tell before the otd they would xx

So madly happy for you, hun!! This is really a life long journey. We had less of these numbers. And for the most part because we booked all inclusive package. It saved time and our savings definitely. (We passed ivf with donor egg, 2 fresh shots, 2 5-day embies transferred each time).

But all the numbers worth that very BFP. I wish you all the best :)

and a lot of patience! you forgot ;)

PS congratulations! you are amazing too, just having been through all of those isn’t what everyone can endure and still post about it on the internet, casually saying oh I’ve been through tons and tons of injections and pills but whatever I've got myself a BFP!! and you are right, this is the most rewarding thing out of all that can happen to a woman!

i am just gathering forces to contact the clinic, I am not that brave and strong mentally and physically as you are though haha

You'll surprise yourself- honestly if someone told me those numbers before i started id have a fit but just take it one step at a time x

yes, one step at a time!! this is the best idea when it comes to fertility treatment.

i have contacted the clinic and even had a formal start of my stimulation haha, my egg donor is on her way to be stimulated, for now I am only regulating my cycle and waiting for the day when the actual scary stimulation begins.
