My nurse will be Sheila, any of you met her? Any thoughts or opinions?
Does Monash give everyone a pick of the embryo?
I meant to ask if they always give you a picture of the embryo...
I agree, MIVF for whatever reason doesn't discuss embryo quality, I don't even think the embryologist is there at the transfer, just a nurse or assistant. I wish I moved on to Monash ages ago. What's the transfer with the camera like?
The embryologist had a picture & I asked for a copy, she was more than happy to get one for me.
You have a FS doing the transfer, nurse doing an ultrasound from outside your tummy & the embryologist in the room during transfer. You see the area where they place it & they talk you through it... I don't like MIVF 'just stick it in' approach
I never knew what we were getting with MIVF. The last embryo put in was grown to day 5 but when I looked at it, it looked nothing like a blasty. We had 3 that didn't make the thaw so I was a disheartened with that news that I didn't question the grading of the one they put in. It's like they put the embies to thaw and leave them and only look at it the day of transfer. I'm hoping the ultrasound with ET will do the trick.
AFM- AF has finally showed her ugly face!! So I have taken my first dose of prednisolone today and start jabbing tomorrow. Nervous and excited!! I had to pull out the gonal f instruction DVD to refresh my memory on what to do as it has been over a year!
Woohoo, Riss78, good luck! When is your first scan?
Martcc, any symptoms yet? Hang in there, two more days AFM, blood test results have been coming in drips and drops, so far no major issues. Having counseling appointment today, then we'll be ready to cycle...
Have a great week everyone
