    Miss Sagi.... I will have an endo scratch in 3 weeks time, then will do the next FET, which I estimate will be about middle of September. It seems absolutely ages away, and I was actually considering not doing the endo scratch (as it hasn't done anything so far!!) in order to get started straight away, but Dr M was quite adamant last Friday at my appointment with him that I should have the scratch, so that's what I will go with. Plus it will allow me to pressure my FS to do the NKC biopsy again during the scratch and actually test the CD57 which he didn't do last time.

    Miss Sagi: I know a bit about chinese herbs. Don't take dong gui when you are pregnant. It will cause miscarriage! Dong gui is usually consumed right after period. It helps to replenish blood.

    Agree with you all about the phone consults. Its crap. Same service.. possibly less than if we walked into his office but no rebate at all.

    Hi Snowy, I had similar bitty bleeding when on the pessaries during early pregnancy as they can irritate everything down there. I also had a large clot of blood fall out and that is what Dr was most concerned about as sign of threatened miscarriage. Just let your Dr know so he can assess. I was out in bedrest for a few weeks.

    AFM, sorry I've been so AWOL on this post. After making it through to 24wks which Dr M said we could breathe sign of relief, I've been traveling back to NZ to set up for birth there but had bad scare as baby hasn't really grown much in last month. Dr said On weekly scans now to assess if baby is out than in each week. Think I jinxed our bub by relaxing a bit that everything was going to be ok. Trying not to stress but its impossible, like not breathing. Dr said growth could be impacted by my stress levels as we've just moved countries and changed jobs etc and me doing too much. So feeling very guilty too. Been ordered to stay off my feet as much as possible.

    Have any of the preggy ladies who've had their bub had similar issues in third trimester?

    I know how lucky I am to have these worries for bub so much love to everyone on here trying xo

    In regard to no medicare rebate for tele-consult. Yes it sucks. The phone consult is always so short. 10mins top for me. It is the problem of medicare system. If we would have done video (skype) consult, it would have been claimable. Geez...the lady at the medicare office just told me not to do teleconsult with DrM anymore. What a nice advice?! It is not like we have a choice. IVFA used to charge about half fee for phone consult by knowing we cant claim. It is nice of them doing that as there is no reason for dr to charge less. But now, they r also charging in full now.

    @kiwi76, sorry no experience with it but just wanted to wish you all the best. Must be terrifying and yes, impossible not to worry and stress. I'm stressing now about pregnancy and not even pregnant (yet!!). Hope you get to put your feet up and relax and bub does some catch up growing. The Nz fresh air and winter food should help with that! Hope your next scan brings reassuring news.

    A quick question: why is there a need of bed rest? I was told to resume normal activity after the transfer. Of course, i also think bed rest is important but when does one need it?

    Bbhope.... I think the bedrest is for women who have some kind of bleeding, as the idea is not to stir anything else up. Yes, resume normal activities after transfer is fine, just don't do anything different or particularly stressful. I always take it easy (e.g. don't lift heavy boxes etc) just so I don't have anything to regret.

    By the way, I received the letter from Dr M's secretary today, which I can take to Medicare, saying that Dr M's consults are nothing to do with IVF. Rather pleased that I only asked for it on Fri and the letter is here already on Tues. Just noticed though, that the letter has on it a nice picture of a stork carrying a baby - lol!!

    Snowy12, I inserted the progesterone pessaries rectally to ensure no unnecessary bleeding on Dr M's advice. The other advantages of this is that there is better absorption, no leakage and you do not need to lie down for any extended time upon insertion. I hope your bleeding stops.
    And to everybody having phone consults with Dr M, you can claim them from Medicare. Just ask Gwyneth to give you the correct receipt.

    THank you so much for the reassurance and advice girls regarding the pink spotting. Good news is my HCG went from 369 to 3600 in 5 days so it went up well. I still have a little pink when I wipe but not often. i swapped to using the pessaries rectally and it did reduce so I hope that's it. Thanks gentay for that info as Dr M didn't tell me that. Good to know they still absorb well up the other end

    Kiwi- I am wishing real hard for you. I was told that bed rest is so all the energy is available for the baby or when there is a cervix issue or bleeding. Yours is obviously being suggested so you stop running around like us women normally do and let the body focus on growing new life :-) bed rest is hard. I knew someone on it from 22 weeks until birth at 38 weeks! Hope you have an iPad for use lying on the couch! Grow little baby!!
