    Hi ladies,

    Thanks for the well wishes

    So we left Thursday morning at 8:30am got to airport checked in and find we have a 5 hour delay before we leave, so instead of our 3:30pm arrival we get to hotel at 9:30pm or so.

    Friday we had a great day slowly made our way to concept fertility in Subiaco, so we went in and Dr Ambekar was SOOO lovely, she clearly explained everything involved to DH and I (was really happy that she included DH in the conversation equally), gave us the real facts of what we are up against, and we left with loose weight I need to be under 35 BMI before they will start BUT given how impressed and supportive she was of the fact of me having lost 4kg already and I don't want to do first cycle til Feb Dr Ambekar thinks it won't be hard to loose now I finally have the right dose of metformin working for me.

    DH is really happy about her and waiting til Feb (when I wanted to start) because it means I can loost the weight, he can have 2 weeks or so holidays from work and we can all go down as a family to do it, the FS I spoke to in Darwin over the phone when we first moved back here in July is happy to treat me after loosing 10kg which I am nearly half way to achieving but DH and I think Dr Ambekars manner and abilities are worth the extra work to see her instead regardless of the financial part (paying upfront or afterwards) I was happy with her honesty and supportive manner.

    DH left already planning and finding hotels for our next trip down and feeling positive about it all, we need to get him back on suppliments ASAP the better his numbers and results will determine if ICSI or IVF is used, IUI is unlikely to be enough given his last SA results.

    So all we needed to make our trip perfect was to rewind time and remove the 5 hour delay going down and erase the 10 hour delay in Broome on the way back home .

    Congrats LozzyS and great jump in numbers Samarasmum.

    HI to everyone else

    Hi 2plus3equals6,
    dr Ambeker is my dr too. I come from Sharkbay so we have to drive 10hrs to Perth to see her and stay for 2-3weeks for ivf. We r down to Perth this Saturday for ivf try number 2. Stick with concept. They are lovely. My husband and I couldn't be happier with our plan and treatment by all staff. Receptionists, blood test girls, ultrasound girls, theatre staff, dr Ambeker and nurse coordinators all exceptional. Good luck with it all.

    I'm also at Concept with Dr Ambekar and I couldn't fault them. I've had nothing but positive support from everyone there.

    My first scan is tomorrow which is 7w+4d so I'm really hoping we get to hear a little heartbeat! I think I'll feel more relaxed after that!

    Thanks ladies appreciate the feedback, we will be sticking with Dr Ambekar the way she was with DH was enough to impress me, he is a smart man but processes info slower than others (cause he over thinks things and misses the end of what is being said sometimes) so sometimes needs to ask for things to be said more than once and Dr A was great happily answered him very straight down the line and factually.

    Mrs Jones Good luck with your upcoming trip, we are a 10 hour drive to Darwin from our place so understand how draining that sort of trip is, hope it is successful for you.

    Caketin - will be stalking you for news of how scan goes...

    Hi everyone! I'm new to this thread! Dh an I have been ttc for a year and have just found out he has low sperm count and we may have to go down the fertility path. Can you recommend any specialists to me? I am overweight so need someone who is willing to help!! I've had info from pivet so far but they won't help me. I'm a bit frazzled still. Obviously didn't think we wouldn't be able to conceive naturally!

    Bubble1984 Welcome Hollywood has a max BMI of 35.

    Caketin Goodluck with your scan tomorrow. I hope you hear a nice strong heart beat.

    Mrsjones your next cycle is your lucky one.

    Goodluck to everyone else.

    AFM I have made an appointment with an OB, just a bit concerned as I have not had my scan yet. I think I will be on cloud 9 once I have had my scan and the baby is measuring the correct size. Trying not to stress out. Also found out that my Blood Pressure is up.

    Caketin- good luck for the scan. Hope it goes well. Nice strong heart beat will be gorgeous to see.

    Bubbles1984- I would highly recommend dr ambekar at concept. She told me to lose some weight but was good about it. Im 7kg down, 10kg to go. She was happy to go ahead with ivf if I made the effort to eat well and excercise during the process.

    Samarasmum- good luck with your appointment and scan. Exciting times. Gives the rest of us some hope that it might be us next.

    AFM- Nothing new with me. Jabbing away. Driving down to Perth from Sharkbay Saturday and first ultrasound and bt Monday. Pretty moody this time around. I was fine last time. Love looking at everyone's updates.

    Good luck to everyone.

    I have my fingers crossed! It's exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. I'm hoping to hear a really strong heartbeat but its hard not to think about the bad too.
