 Hi girls,

I passed this on to Babybobadoo to update the EGS attempts sheet, I hope this can be off some help to anyone looking to do a some Blue EGS in the future. x

 

Peachy Keen's EGS Boy sway - It's a Boy!


Did you do MSU or SU? MSU - although it was more of a modified swim down

 

Did you use anything to help the EW float, if so, what did you use?  No additives, but I did my sort in a small syringe because the only way I got the EW to float was by sucking up the sperm first then slowly sucking up the ew and easing it to a downwards 45 degree angle. I could not get the EW to float with swim up but could easily with swim down.

  

What type of incubator did you use?   I used an incubation lamp and thermometer

 

How much of a sample did DH give? He gave about 3ml and I used 2.5ml       

  

How much EW did you use?  2.5ml

         

What was the pH of the EW? 9

          

Did you place the test tube at a 45° angle?  yes (Downwards)

         

Did the temperature hold steady at 99°? It varied between 96-99 but never over

         

How long did you leave the sample to incubate for? 1hr

          

Describe your sort.  Use this information from Tamara to describe it.

 

"The top  5-20% (somewhere in there) of the egg white will be shooting star sperm- these in theory are the super X swimmers.  The next layer of EW is the fast strait swimmers.  Then that layer that touches EW to semen will be mixed (straight and slow).  The semen layer will have slow and circle sperm."

 

My sort was just as Tamara described. I didn't see any super x but majority x in the top layer. I had to take off 10% to get to the majority straight swimmers

Did you do TBM?  Yes I used an instead cup, sat up straight for 2 hours once inserted, than fell asleep for another 5 with it still in.        

Don't forget the add how your sway went (diet, ions, timing etc.)  I feel the rest of my sway went really well not sure if I would have been considered to have done all 7 factors as I did TW diet and unfortunately due to M/C my moons phase was not right but I tried various other methods to change ions.

 Hi Bleushell,

When using the EGS and using IC cup you dont actually DTD as you are collecting the sperm so that you can then do your sort with the egg whites and tempertature control. Then place your selected sort into the IC and then inside cupped around your cervix.

I didnt track minerals as i did the trivers willard diet, but my baking soda and COT schedule wasas follows (rememeber i had day 20 ovulation so you would need to adjust it to your own ov day and then you take a break from the drinks after ovulation).

Day 1 & 2 - 0.5 tsp BS, 1 tsp COT in 200ml filtered water

Day 3 & 4 - 0.5 tsp BS, 1 tsp COT in 200ml filtered water twice a day
Day 5 & 6 - 0.5 tsp BS, 1 tsp COT in 200ml filtered water x3 a day
Day 7 & 8 - 0.5 tsp BS, 1 tsp COT in 200ml filtered water x4 a day
Day 9 & 10 - 0.5 tsp BS, 1 tsp COT in 200ml filtered water x5 a day
Day 11 to 20 - 0.5 tsp BS, 1 tsp COT in 200ml filtered water x 6 a day

I scheduled it out like this as if i drunk too much COT too soon in my cycle I got really bad diaherrea with it Embarrassed

 

I did this aswell as drinking lemon water thoughout the day, taking all the supps,2tsp of robitussin cough syrup twice daily from af-O, i did occasionally drink a sachet of gelatin but i was taking TT so didnt really worry about it for testostrone.

I hope that helps.

Peachy x

Thank you for your quick reply, Peachykeen!! I really like how you spaced the drinks according to your cycle. I think I am following along accordingly so far with VERY much effort!!! Although i am having trouble producing cm in the past two cycles. I dont know if the epo has anything to do with this since i am taking it along with fish oil too. I would really appreciate any tips you ca give me!! my Dh and i will begin practicing with microscope this week.

PeachyKeen,

 Whenever you get a few minutes, just as Blueshell as requested can you give some more details about your swim down attempt as to what equipment. Also, if you have any pictures that would be an icing over the cake.

 We would truly appreciate it.

I am having problems with the egg whites just sinking in the sample so was wondering if I can try swim down.
