    May I ask was it brought up as an issue with conception and carrying or only with giving birth?

    Mrsmac I think you should wait till you see your fs for ultrasounds and scans. Try to work on your bmi in the mean time. You may be wasting money having ultrasounds done now and then having to repeat them later on with your specialist. Your specialist may want to take a look inside himself. Who are you seeing?
    by the way nothing wrong with the fertility lubricants. To me they feel safer to use then all those other fancy ones. God knows whats in those! Plus the fertility ones
    don't feel any different to the other ones, don't know what he's complaining about.

    Hi mrsmac, I know I'm just new to the group but wanted to post my 2 cents worth! I agree with team panda about trying to get your bmi down. I managed to scrape through my first cycle with my FS not checking my weight (my bmi was ok for the clinic but over her threshold). That cycle was abysmal. I have since lost some weight and got my bmi right down and my last two cycles were both improvements. So I def think it has an impact, if nothing else it will make you feel good.

    I'd also wait on the us. If your FS wants anything specific he'll just get you to do them anyway, and if you're taking the time to get your bmi under control then you can use the tests as motivation to help you keep going and feel like you're not just waiting, waiting.

    Haha, we just got the fertility lube this month, I'm so over the thought of bd'ing but we still wanted to try for that elusive natural bfp this month!

    Good luck

    Yeh more and more I am thinking I will wait, a month ago it was a case of mannn I gotta wait 2 months just to get there and them to say right lets do these tests before we can start...so I thought I could save time and kill time getting it done..,.but I know now that it prob wont make any diff to starting now. The Fertility Group at Springwood (bris) I am going to start with, I just cant afford to go elsewhere that i know of and get more than 1 cycle...but with the bmi rule of 35 and well these other issues creeping in not sure if they will want me...well jumping the gun I guess...i have never been so motivated to lose weight so its good but its going to take a while..so far its bin ok but today was really hungry....and lazy..

    Thanks for your opinions it makes sense.

    MrsMac, I just wanted to second Panda and Chiefsgirl on the BMI thing. It really is the one thing you can work on. I was really obese after I had my DD, and nothing worked until I got within a few kg of my pre-DD weight (which wasn't thin). It still didn't work then, which was when I was able to get referred see my FS. I managed to lose a couple more kg before I started IVF, and I'm glad I did. My weight has fluctuated since I started cycling, but I've managed to get it back down between times.

    You've done a great job on the weight loss so far. Your FS appointment is 3 weeks away, if you can lose a few more kg between now and then, it might be enough for them to get started with testing at the very least.

    Update girls: so went in for a routine scan on Wed, within a minute (barely) of lying down on the table the techs first words (very causally).....'so there's the sac which is empty...no baby -while iam still trying to digest this next sentence as he glides to the other side 'and no heartbeat for this baby'. Iam utterly shocked mind is racing dh is squeezing my hand speechless.....and then I said....'no it cannot be if I have an empty sac I wld have bled' (I haven't had any bleeds or spotting) to the tech plus I had a scan 10 days ago and there was 2 heartbeats. then within the next min he glides around and on the screen comes a perfect bub wiggling madly (again the tech goes casually oh theres the baby, no bloody kidding you di$%head!) with a heart rate of 171!!!Phew so he is gliding about and I asked him so that's the one you thought was empty right and he replies yes then I say so they both have heartbeats he says yes. So works on twin A then starts on twin B, now twin B has always been very difficult to see from day one normally we need tranvag us and its still hard as its apparently tucked in up and deep. For the longest time he tried (only u/s no transvag) and we cldnt get a clear or clean shot of the baby - very distorted...in the end he says 'no activity' and calls in supervisor, more gliding and pressing, dh and I still cannot see baby clearly in the end the supervisor goes 'no activity and no heart beat Twin B' (infact deformed is what he writes on the report and said that to us too) and neither does he tell us at how many weeks baby succumbed - normally they told you that Iam sorry you are 10 weeks but its seems baby past away x weeks as that's how much it measures....but nothing (and we were too devastated to think straight at the moment ). So I say to the tech but I asked you if they both had heartbeats initially and you said yes!! He blurbs some excuse in front of his supervisor. So now what?? My gut feeling is I hope they are wrong cause honestly we cldnt get a clear shot of Twin B and Twin A sac is overlapping twin B. We are going in for another scan (ahem ) at a different place, prepared for the worst and hoping for the best. DH was devastated and cried that night I was just blank and none accepting. We are so distressed and upset that we honestly didn't have time to enjoy the beautiful madly wiggling baby, that filled the screen with arms and legs and all a far cry from our 8 week scan and we heard the heart beat for the first time, which was really funny cause the tech didn't tell us he was putting the sound on and for a minute I thought it started raining hard on the roof until I realized!!. I think had we known that things weren't looking good, it wld have been easier to digest but the way the whole scanning went it was such a shock to the system. I am sorry for no personals ladies atm but my head isn't quite right will keep youse update after our scan today, which Iam totally dreading . Emski its looking very promising for you, had been holding my breath and was hoping it is going to be a bfp and looks like it is! I am sure it shd tick over 50 since you did test early. until your next bt!

    Ann - I cannot believe how badly those scan people (sonographers?) treated you! So sorry to read your update, but I too would be going for a second opinion scan ASAP. I really hope that it may be ok - but it would be very shocking. When did you manage to get a new scan for?
    Thinking of you and your DH

    Wow...that really really is the most stupid way to "joke" with someone in the first place...let alone someone going through so much. Myself I would have something to say to someone up the chain about them pulling their head in... if not for just blurting out things left right and centre before they have a clue...that is seriously bad for your health. Often when I have had them you cant get them to say anything until its been reviewed afterwards. Sorry ann I hope that the alternate one is a better experience.

    Hey girls unfort I have lost twin b at least this tech was empathetic and gentle with her words and gave my belly a gentle rub with apologies. Dh and I are sad but doing ok we just have to be thankful of what we have and it reminds us just how precious things are. Surviving twin was waving at us wildly. So we have to move past this and think of the little one growing inside me. Iam flying back to Bris with dh fri week so it will be a long time until I get to see my OB who I actually haven't seen yet and will be seeing him following wed for our nt appt. in the meantime I have sent my fs an email. I just hope I don't have a terrible bleed and it mostly gets absorbed.

    MrsMac the one I had removed was over 12cm, was growing on a stalk and hanging into the uterine cavity which would have made pregnancy impossible, as there simply wasn't enough room. That was the only one that required removal. The others are all at the top of the uterus which apparently doesn't impact on implantation, pregnancy or birth - unless they are obstructing the tubes in some way. I'm sure your Dr will be able to give you more personalised guidance though.

    P.S. I am another whose BMI was within my clinic's limits but my Dr had her own (lower) limit that I was slightly over. She commenced my long-cycle on the basis that I was to lose enough weight that I would be within her BMI limit next time around. Well luckily there is no "next time" needed but I do think losing a few kgs while I was on the Pill, before starting stims, probably helped. I certainly felt much fitter and healthier.
