    Desert, congratulation to your great numbers!!! That is a sticky bee now!!! :-)
    also thanks a lot for your updating. What a great job you do here, fantastic!

    i had finally my BT yesterday, so now I w a i t again for the results. My dummy is getting bigger without anything in it and my face is turning slowly into a male one.
    other than that I can't feel any changes from dex.
    I'll have an FS appointment end of October. Was hard to squeeze myself in that one. But then.... I hope I can join your side of happiness too

    Hi ladies, just popping by to welcome all the newcomers and to wish you all luck at whatever point you are in this crazy process. I have been a bit slack with bubhub since joining the Facebook group but will do some personals soon

    Hope

    Just a quick question.. how has everyone found Gwyneth from Dr Matthais office, with getting back to you? Is she the only one that works there? She's lovely but seemed very slap happy about things. Sorry to say that, but just how I found her... a bit of a joker & funny, but 5 days later after receiving my paperwork hadn't looked at it or sent it through to Dr M, just found that a bit surprising. Maybe my expectations is a bit high and my patience low !!

    Hi sooty, I've found her ok but having said that I have been on her back at every stage of my cycle/pregnancy. I would rather be in control and make sure they are doing things on time than just sit here waiting for a call. They are extremely busy, she has on occasion called me back at 9.30pm on a Friday night and was very frazzled so bear that in mind. But if you don't hear back just call again. I think cause I was so annoying she would just get my stuff out of the way each time to stop me calling again and again 😜

    Simpson have fun at your intralipids on Sunday 😃 hope you don't need to do any work this time and can just relax. Take some snacks with you, I found it a struggle after the early dinner with only one little snack until 10.30pm

    Haven't received my surface marker bloods back yet and have been to busy with work this week to chase up gwyneth. Dr ms handwriting on the request was pretty bad so I think they may have posted my results rather than faxing. I will chase them up on Monday and see if/when I need my next intralipids. We also found out this week that we are having a boy! And been feeling bigger and bigger mowvements from bub which is very exciting and a relief as I can now tell that he is ok in there 💙👶

    Hope everyone else is doing well xxx

    Hi Sootymay, there are a number of us who have found Dr M's clinic frustrating with the lack of communication. As my hubby says though, he's the man and in my opinion the only Doctor in Australia that gets to the bottom of immune issues, so try and persevere and just expect that you will be the one who needs to do all the chasing for results etc. I know it shouldn't be like that but I think in part due to this thread he has become super busy and doesn't have the staff necessary to be able to manage all the daily stuff. Gwenyth is lovely, although she is run off her feet. Have you had a chance to get hold of Dr Beer's book ''is your body baby friendly'? if you have read it you will see that Dr M follows his protocols. I am not aware of any other FS that does in Australia, including Dr S, so hang in there, as the many ladies who have got their BFP's will tell you all the frustration with the lack of communication is worth it in the end. I only wish I found him sooner

    Sootymay, definitely don't wait for your calls from Gwyneth :-) She is a nice lady, but I got a bit frustrated too with waiting for some results. Or she says she will call back and doesn't. So now, I just ring and be annoying and she really tries to help. She is very busy. I got calls at 9.15 pm as well. But I have biggest faith in Dr. M's work. Sooo many girls here succeeded, and I rally believe in him. Just a bitty I haven't heart about him earlier. I also got told that he's honest with you, he would say if there is no hope at all.
    So far I'm very happy with them. Busy busy business :-)

    Thank you so much ladies - that's a wonderful response from you all to reply so quickly. OH dear, sounds like this is going to be fun and games...! I always feel on the back foot phoning her, as it makes you feel uncomfortable chasing her. She just seems so blas-aye about everything, making jokes and so on. I've marked on the paperwork that we fly to South Africa 5 November and sent my treatment plan as well so he has everything, and so he knows the dates if I'm required to do anything earlier. Transfer is booked for 16 November (If everything goes according to plan) - so I just really wanted him to be on top of it, should it be required. (PS... Why does Bubhub sometimes not let you put in line spaces?...errrgghhh!!!) --------------- I suggested to her that I was happy to pay the $300 upfront if required before the phone call, so if he wanted to order bloods, maybe I could do that today (ha ha - no I haven't heard back from her)... do you think he gets the paperwork, or does she sit on it? She did say... "I'm sorry I haven't had a chance to look at it, it must be stressful, I'll do it now". Will he definitely call at the arrange time, or at least the arranged day? I assume she's on top of things enough to have booked that it ... I guess I'll just do what you've suggested and keep politely calling her. Thanks again, I really appreciate your honesty, I felt a bit uncomfortable raising it, but thought you would all obviously know

    Just thought I would chime I with my experience of Gwyneth, she is ridiculously busy but has been amazing. Before I discovered I was pregnant the paperwork and the process was slow and yes very frustrating but as soon as i contacted them about my unexpected pregnancy she sorted me out with intralipids in 24hrs mid week in Hurstville. I guess what I am saying is dont stress as she really rises to the occasion and between my initial surprise pregnancy and my bleeding I have felt really comfortable with the level of support especially after going through several years, of the IVF Australia experience where the attitude was let's wait and see and I lost 6 babies. I believe I am in much better hands as Dr M and the overworked Gwyneth have far more experience dealing with immune/high risk pregnancies and although there is only the 2 of them we are all know individually and you just have to read through this board to see their success.

    You can also try emailing her, I found she would respond within minutes most times. She responds on Dr M's email which you can find online, I don't have it on me now.

    Sootymay

    I always got the call the the appointed day. The 300 dollars we all had to pay upfront. After you fill in all there paperwork you will arrange a day for consultation (phone or in person). Dr m will let you know what supplements you and DH should take in the meantime and he did email me my BT's which I just printed and up i went to get it done. This waiting time was the worse for me so fare as the results took 4 weeks. And I really felt already sorry for Gwyneth as I rang nearly every day after 2 weeks. She was very understand-full. After they received my tests, she rang me back to arrange another consultation with dr. M. I got put on steroids which she faxed me to a pharmacy in Melbourne (as I didn't receive it per post fast enough) :-)
    patients is getting proven here!!! :-/ I'm not sure if I ever can get used to it :-)
    next week I should hear back from Gwyneth (but I'm sure I'll ring her first) :-)
