Thank you all so much for your lovely messages (and all so quick too). I am very impressed.
Betty good luck today - I pressume your appointment is this Wednesday. I will have my fingers and toes crossed for you. I hope the nurses are nicer to you this time around. There is nothing worse than when people condescend you. Also I think its ok if you tell them they need to listen to you. I actually did this to Dr Dutt. I told him I needed more information for my own personal clarity and that he should spend more time talking to his patients...... and my gosh he was a different Dr to me after that. I probably had a big warning sticker on my file that siad "be nice to this patient" :O
(I too have done quite a bit of reading and have already done 2 nurse interviews at 2 other IVF clinics so I am not going in blind. Hopefully they understand that).
Goldie, Monash called yesterday and I too have been given Teneka as our nurse - which after reading your post I am very excited about. I spoke to her briefly last week and she sounds great. Thanks for all the info regarding the payment plan and medicare. This is quite different from GFC. There you still pay in 2 installments but you only have 3 days after egg pick and then you can claim it back.
I'll keep you all posted on the day 5 blastocysts. Dr Ong wants to meet my partner next week to discuss this with him. Dr Ong had no trouble convincing me this was best but my DH could be another story, and I guess we have to go with what we are both comfortable with.
So it sounds like there are quite a number of success stories on this thread too which is beautiful. TK and Goldie I hope all your scans go well and your little miracles remain sticky. You guys can be the hope for all of us.
I don't know if anyone believes in the moon and the affects of the planets etc (I'm not really into it but I do pay attention when people tell me).... Anyway the start of next year galaxy wise is suppose to be a great time to start new things when all the stars align. So next year could just be our turn too!
Thanks again x
