That's great.  I am sure the intralipid & prednisone will make the difference.  Do you do bed rest after the transfer & acupuncture on the day of transfer?  I tried eating pineapple each day too.  Probably an old wives tale that one, but I was willing to give anything a try!!  All the best with the transfer.  I know you'll have 3 to transfer!  XOXOX

That is a perfect result Kris!  I'm sure there is nothing wrong with your eggs/embryology, so lets hope that yes, intralipid does it's job!!!!  There's got to be an answer as you don't have bad reserve or quality, I'm sure of that!  I'm thinking of you & this cycle & hoping it's the one!!!  You deserve this so much!  XOXOXO ...And thanks for your note!

YAY, I'm so glad you've done the intralipid! When do you start stimming? I really think you're going to have a great number of eggs to work with anyway. All will be fine! Will you update your cycle on MH? I'll be checking in. Your cycles always seem to yeild good embryos. I hear so many great things about intralipid so lets hope it does the trick!  I'm thinking of you & sending positive vibes your way!  You really deserve this. XOXOX

.....sometimes it seems the less eggs collected the better the quality?  I know my clinic prefers to see 6 - 12 eggs collected.  No more than that.  You have a good record with your eggs getting to blastocysts, so lets just hope the intralipid works magic & that quality is still there.  XOX

I definitely wouldn't cancel! I only had 4 follies & my Dr told me not to cancel or convert to IUI as there's no guarantee my next cycle would be better! I got 8 eggs on my previous cycles & when it came to my egg pick-up I was in uncontrollable tears & wanted to cancel, but my RE recommended I didn't. I was lucky I didn't. I only got 4 eggs, 2 embies & 7 & 9 cells transferred on D3. We never know which egg/s will be in each crop! I always had 8-cells transferred but this time I only had a 7 & 9 & thought my chances were shot. Go with it Kris! I really want this for you & your family! It's a annoying cliche, but it does only take one good egg!  And I'm hoping the intralipid will make a big difference too!  Hugs & SSBD to you! XOXOX

It depends how quickly they 'push' it through.  The nurses had trouble getting the needle into my veins most times, which took up more time.  They start with saline.  I would normally get there at 11am, and would leave around 4pm, although last time I was out of there just after 3pm.  They need to do your temp & blood pressure to at regular intervals.  All will go well Kris!!  XOX

The intralipids is totally fine & it's an opportunity to rest! Do you recall my last cycle was my WORST ever? I only got 4 eggs & 2 embies! We never know which cycle will bring success so go with it!  I almost cancelled my cycle, glad I didn't! I'm OK.  Baby measured 3dys behind today which got me fretting but OB said NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT, about 3 times to me!  Morphology scan Feb10. I'm thinking of you. Please update, I'll be checking in on you! Lots of luck Kris XOXOX

...I threw everything at my last cycle as it was to be my final one & that's why I had prednisone & saizon, plus extra supps. But a specialist I went to for a 2nd opinion told me he didn't believe prednisone had any merit. I still used it but since you have probs with it, I wouldn't worry. If anything is going to make a difference, it should be intralipid. When is your 1st bloodtest? God, I hope you have success. I know how hard it is you so wanting to give your beautiful boy a sibling. I'm thinking of you Kris XOXOXO

YAY, I'm so glad to hear from you! I did my 1st intralipid the same day I started stimming. The 2nd lot should be done as soon as you can after you get a BFP. Then, do it 4-5wkly. Because you have NK cells, I'd keep on doing it until at least 20wks. I did my last lot a couple of wks ago. I didn't have any side effects from the intralipid, nothing at all.....

From memory you were taking a break, but I just wanted to wish you all the best for 2012!  I'm nearly 15wks pregnant & hoping with all my heart this goes the distance.  Let me know how you are when you can!  Hugs to you.  There are a few of us long term MH ladies getting pregnant with our own eggs.  I hope it's your turn very soon XOXO

....I spoke to another RE who was prepared to do intralipid for me before my own RE relented & did it for me.  Anyway, this prior RE told me that he didn't believe prednisone was any good at all & that intralipid was all that was needed.  He would have let me take prednisone though & my own RE prescribed me with prednisone.  I'd go for intralipid & prednisone if I was you.  I don't know what you or your RE think of the growth hormone SAIZEN but I insisted my RE add it to my cycle last time & I got a BFP.  It's hard to know whether I would have gotten pregnant without all of these 'extras', but that's something I'll never know, & after so many failures, something different had to be added to the mix.  I'm on holiday 17-24 Dec, so take care & keep me updated!  Hugs & Luck to you XOX

Now, about you.  I never got NK testing because they don't do it here in NZ, only for research.  But, since you definitely have NK cells, intralipid is definitely an option for you.  You would need to do it every 3 - 4 weeks.  I started on it the day I started stimming.  Once I got a BFP, I did another lot.  I'll keep on doing it up until 20 weeks, although I know of some women who continue it right through pregnancy.  It's not harmful at all to you or baby.  I was also on prednisone & only came off it after my seven week scan.  I started on it the day after egg collection.  Prednisone taken after a BFP has been known to cause minor birth defects (cleft pallete), but you would need to look further into that....

I'm feeling totally yuk.  I feel guilty to moan, especially on MH, but every second of the day is torture, even at night.  I have nausea but my worst problem is a terrible taste in my mouth & excess saliva (sorry, totally gross & TMI), & I have to spit out in the basin whenever I can, otherwise I gag.  It's the worst I've ever felt in my pregnancies. I did have the symptoms with my other ones, but never to this extent.  BUT, I know what the alternative is, not being pregnant, or losing this pregnancy, so I have to be strong & get through it.  I'm 12 weeks on Monday, so hopefully all is going OK.  I fret the heart has stopped beating etc, so I can't wait for my nuchal scan on Dec 28......

Hi Kris!!  Wow was I nervous this morning, I couldn't look at the screen until the RE told me there was nothing to worry about & to take a look!!!  The heartbeat was there, limb buds & it was even moving about which is apparently a great sign flor this stage!  I was told it was a great scan & that I should be looking at a 90% chance of a live baby now!!  Goodness, I truly hope so!!  I see my OB on 5 Dec so just pray I get to that date without any problems!  Oh yes, & I was worried it might be twins!  My friend did IVF & is having twins & my HCGs were higher than hers all along.  She was adament I was having twins too. But golly that would have been too much worry, hard work & too much financially!  Hugs to you & thanks!!  XOXO
