@francesthecat - Dr. nick asked me to lose weight too before he started this cycle. I've lost 14 Kgs in the last 4 months from size 16 to 10. He is def not afraid to say it and said it like it is lol
Well done on that amazing weight loss.
Wow babychino that's great. How have you done it? I've been struggling to lose the weight I put on with prednisolone in June! I'm getting there but I've only lost about 5kgs and have another 5kgs to go before I'm back to what I was before!
Yes yes me too need to know. I was going to go on lite and easy for the stimm stage. 1200 calls per day and no more! Please share Babychino !
I gained 6 with first early M/C this year did not loose any of that. For next stimm and for 4 months pregnant gained 10 kilos. So in 5 months gained 16 kilos maybe more stopped weighing myself. To frightened, always had to be careful with my diet but this just floored me.
No no other time in IVF I've not been able to loose the weight between all the looses and stimms. BMI went from 26 to 32 :/ and those have always involved a huge drinking binge for two weekends. Plus all the comfort food I wanted for a few days after the losses.
My gut Dr told me he was on prednisolone for 3 weeks and gained 3 kilos. He is also a weight loss surgeon. I said if I don't loose this after having a baby. I'm having weight loss surgery. He said get the baby first, I yeah well been trying that for years.
grr...internet is not doing well here. It resets itself once i am done typing. @ladybug: i certainly would ask the account people at DrM office to clarify the first trimester managing fee. He is not your OB and I don't see the reason why you have to pay that. As I mentioned, I know a perth lady who did the intralipid throughout her first trimester with DrM without paying such fee. Just consultation and intralipid.
To be honest, his office accounting system has no standard. Some people can claim tele-consult from medicare, some can't. Some people get charged $150 follow up consultation fee, I got charged $200. i also heard a slight variation on the initial consultation fee as well. Because with the bank transfer system, there is no description for them to track who pay what. I once got a phone call asking if it was me paying. I wish they would just let us use credit/debit card but i assume his office doesn't want to absorb the fee.
Ha...speaking of weight. My male colleague who i haven't met for 10 yrs just told me that i put on a lot of weights. Lol...not the first thing you want to hear for the start of a business meeting.
9 embryos now and just got our latest BFN. Boo
oh OperationbabyG I'm so sorry to hear that, how awful, that's a lot of embryos, have you got some left or do you need to do another cycle now? did you get your HCG number, you should ask them so you know if you had a chemical or not... sounds like you need some further testing of some sort... have you tried the scratch at all? I am now going to rant about that... sending you lots of hugs
Thanks for your message PreciousHeart. No embryos. In the last 11 months we've done 4 full stims and one fet, a lap, and two hysteroscopy/biopsies/d&c
My hcg was 2.6 10dpo-pretty much spot on with what it always is. So frustrating-don't really know what's left to try. Really starting to think I'll never be a mother. Nothing in the world I want more.
