    Default **Calling all Sydney IVF/ART ladies- from limbo land to graduates **#4

    Great results Bertie. Dr M asks for hcg & p4 tests to be done weekly (I think you're still under his care?) so if fs won't do them hassle Gwyn for the request forms so good for peace of mind!
    *edit- weekly til 9-10wks.

    Great results Bertie!! Woo hoo!!
    There is no way I could wait 2-3 weeks for the scan. I got my GP to do a test in between when the clinic didn't want to do it anymore.

    Bella... yes, I was wondering if Dr M would do that, as he's the one prescribing the progesterone pessaries, as my FS didn't think they were necessary. So I think I will ring my clinic up tomorrow and book another BT for Sat, and then Sat afternoon get Dr M to write me BT referrals for then after. Thanks for the heads up. I'll say it again, I have done no research about being pregnant, and am really just learning as I'm going. Is there a nice webiste / page / thread somewhere that I really should be checking out?

    Bertie, I downloaded about 3 pregnancy apps first time around, and grilled my girlfriends with younger kids for info. The big thing is if you plan on having the baby in a private hospital with an obstetrician you need to book in with your preferred ob immediately. Don't wait til 7wk scan or they book out! If you're not sure of OBs call your preferred hospital for a list. So exciting!

    Bella... thanks for all your tips. I have an exercise book now where I'm writing everything down!!

    AFM.... third BT results are in, with Hcg level of 2300 (23dpo). My FS rang himself again with the results, and said it is "bang on where it should be." I'd already done the maths though, and thought if it was doubling from my 2nd BT then it should have been about 4500, so though I am quietly happy that I am still pregnant, I'm still guarded. Going off some googled Hcg tables, I have:
    - 1st BT on 15dpo was 155 (high end of range 17-147)
    - 2nd BT on 18dpo was 780 (high end of range 70-758)
    - 3rd BT on 23dpo is 2300 (range is 506-4660, so slightly above the average 2034)
    Well, I've promised myself now that once a week BTs will be fine, so let's see how I go making it through the next week!!

    Peonies.... thanks for thinking of me. I had another BT last Friday at 29dpo (or 5w6d). My Hcg was 21,000 (slightly more than doubled every 48hrs that week) and progesterone was 140 (slightly dropped since last week, but still good). I've been feeling a bit "icky" last Tues + Wed, nothing major, but had wondered whether I was imagining it, but there you go, it's still there. A part of me says I should be ever so happy, but the realistic part says I still have a long way to go until safe. I was quite icky Thurs, Fri and Sat, but the last couple of days I'm now not really icky at all. Kind of doing my head in. Will have another BT this coming Friday.

    Am interested in knowing if you plan or had a natural birth or C-section, and what the pros and cons, especially if you're on the older end of the scale or had any medical conditions? I know this will be a topic of conversation when I see my ob in two weeks time, so want to have a few ideas ready.

    That's excellent MGC! I found my "symptoms" really came and went with my pregnancies. I really wondered if they were imagined too. I think from memory progesterone production slows as the placenta kicks in and so ur symptoms do to them they ramp up again. Doesn't ease the mind tho.

    I have a friend who tried to fall pregnant for years and when she finally did she was older and decided that she wanted to eliminate any further risk and stress so opted for c-sec and was very happy with her decision. But I have plenty of other "older" friends who laboured naturally with no complications. I always let my OB decide as he was the professional I was trusting (and paying). I loved my OB. Which hospital r u going to? I would highly recommend mine if it's westmead private. He was recommended by prof I which I think was your Dr?

    Traveler.... My closest private hospital is Sydney South West (Liverpool) which is 30 minutes from my house, so I plan to go there. Next closest is Nepean (40mins) and then Westmead (50mins). In the end my OB is going to be my existing immune specialist, Dr Mattias, as he kind of insisted that he be my ob, as I apparently fall into the "high risk immune" category. I had started looking into obs, but am fine going with him, since I don't have to retell my entire medical history to someone new. I'm not sure what Prof I will say, but he's still on holidays, so some other doctor at IVFA is doing my first scan on Tues.

    Other than that,I didn't get Friday's BT on Friday, and won't get the results until tomorrow (Mon) as my immune specialist never rang back (even though I left two messages on Friday and one on Saturday - I think he must still be on holidays) and the GP on-call at my family practice (as my GP is away until Monday too!!) wouldn't tell me the results over the phone, as he said, "I don't know the rest of your history, so I can't interpret the result" so have no idea if I'm safely over the 6 week mark yet or not. What a comment!! I'm sure he could have just told me the silly number!!
