Emski- I've been thinking about you. How did you go today? We're you there this morning. The waiting room was packed I was wondering if you were there. If so I was sitting with my hubby in the bright fluro vest. Couldn't miss us. I hope everything was fine and bubs is where is should be.x
Martcc- wow congrats to getting to 32 weeks! I know how you feel about anxiety and stress. Have you had any counselling? I found it has helped me to talk to someone and learn some techniques to help. Wishing you all the best with the last part or your pregnancy xx
Welcome to sue and kellyk- I wish you all the best with seeing Lynn. We too left melb ivf when we felt like our fs was not doing anything to help out situation. He did not want to test me and just blamed DH. Not one test performed on me!!!! Not even a blood test to check my egg reserve, hormone levels nothing!!! Since we moved to monash I've been pregnant both cycles with Lynn. Love her! Seriously! I want to be her BFF lol
AFM- I saw Lynn this morning and had my 7 week scan and all seems good. Now I'm seeing my OB in 2 weeks plus seeing a perinatal specialist today to get a second opinion on how to go about keeping me and bubs healthy and inside till his/her due date. Xx
Thanks everyone for your well wishes.
Yes Riss, we were in there when you were, I think we went in just before you - we were the dour looking couple against the window! I'm glad to hear everything went really well for you!
It's been such a stressful and horrible weekend for us both. I fully expected to get in there and have surgery scheduled or a shot given to miscarry. But Lynn was like 'congratulations!' and I'm thinking - what have we got to celebrate?
We did a scan and thankfully it's not ectopic which is brilliant news and one less hurdle to overcome. The scan showed a sac and yolk and she said 'that may be a flicker of heartbeat I can see, but it could just be your heartbeat... we'll do another scan in a week and see if it has progressed.' She said when betas do what mine have done (only rising 1000 in 7 days) the outcome is probably not going to be good but 'you never know'. So I'm back to limbo land for another 7 days but thankfully of that awful beta roller coaster. I also found it interesting that she told me I was 6 weeks and 4 days today - whereas the nurse said I was 6 weeks and 4 days last Friday - I'm not sure how far along I am at all!
Anyway - once again thank you all for your support.
Riss so glad to hear your scan went well and that you get to see your OB now... is it one Lynn recommend?
Emski I was so happy to read that it's not ectopic... so happy for you and pray that everything is still going strong in a week xx
So happy it's not ectopic too Em! I think Lynn needs to update her scanning machines. They are not clear at all. I heard them book two ladies to go downstairs for a rescan. I'm 7 weeks today and I think you were two days behind me so I think the scan was right and not the nurse. Go by when you had your egg pick up as day of ovulation on one of those due date online calculators to find out if you like. I know it's hard not to stress and I hope this week flies for you. I'll be thinking of you and DH. I thought it might have been you but didn't want to seem stalkerish hehe
Jb- thanks so much! How are you going? Yes going back to the OB I had a few months ago. Lynn gave me a few recommendations and I picked the one with lots of good reviews on google
What ob's does lynn recommend if you dont mind me asking? Im making a list for future reference
Hi williteverhappen, thanks for the info.. That's so good to here that Lynn comes up with new approaches.. My FS at MIVF only believed in increasing or decreasing the amount of medicine and I never knew that additional drugs can be added to the cycle. It may help my egg quality as well.. All the best for your cycle" how long does it take for Lynn to start the cycle once you see her first time
Hi Riss78 thanks for the reply and congrats for your BFP..I hope Lynn tests us properly and brings out a altogether new approach...
Hi Smootch your story gives so much hop ) we have to hang on there and just be in good hands.... All the best
