hi @Bubbles1984 I'm afraid I can't help with clinics as we are south but just wanted to say hi and congratulate you on your weight loss, that is no mean feat that has improved your fertility
@MrsTugs So sorry for the outcome. Thinking of you. xo
@MrsTugs I'm in Thornlie, we go to Fertility Specialists South in Applecross... I'm a bit the same with my exams ivf has thrown a bit of a curve ball at my studies. oh well, it is what it is i guess good luck for your one tomorrow
Hi @Bubbles1984 my DH and I have just left joondalup for the same reason - not happy with our doctor (curious if it's the same person? His first name (nickname) is a way to describe the weather...) anyway we've switched to FSWA in claremont and while we won't be cycling til January, I'm so happy with our doctor there already. He's diagnosed me with having hypothyroidism and started me on medication and I feel so much better than I did before and I've only been on the medication for a week! Our old doctor did the same tests, got the same out of range result, but never told me or did anything about it so I'm pretty pee'd off with him! Good luck with the search for a new clinic.
Just got home from my exam, it felt pretty easy, though there were a few sections I had to guess because I just didn't have a clue due to not having read those parts haha.....
Hi everyone! Thank you for the warm welcome back! We are in landsdale and I work in Morley so close to either is good. I can't remember the name of the dr we saw but he was South African that's all I can remember about him! Dh got his referral for the semen test with clinipath so we will see how we go with that before we jump back into the fertility dr. We've got time this time so I want to make the right choice if we need to go this way (which I have a niggling feeling we will). I have my 1 year follow up appointment with my baristiric surgeon Monday. I'm 800 grams away from his goal! I don't think I'll get there lol
BT on Thursday but I'm not feeling very hopeful. The one and only time I was pregnant I had major symptoms by now: most notably boobs so sore I couldn't lay on my tum. I still have everything crossed...
If I'm not preggo I'm giving myself 10 weeks to go from 88kg to 80kg - Dec 1 to Feb 1. I don't believe in crash diets and will try to do it sensibly with 1400 calorie counting and balanced but smaller meals... but desperate times!
Next round we are using my favourite frostie of the final three attempts (I know we are not supposed to have favorites but I do, lol, it's from our first round, its perfect quality and been sitting frozen for years receiving my good vibes and love every time I drive past the clinic) and I will just be so devastated if it doesn't take. I'd like to give it the best chance.
Good luck for BT today @Sharlie
glad to hear exam was easy @MrsTugs was that your last one??
afm, saw FS last night and feeling a bit more upbeat, next cycle we'll do a stimulated FET instead of a natural one and in the mean time I'm having some more tests done just to rule aout any autoimmune disorders. feeling a bit more optimistic now I know there's a few more things we can try. Looking at Jan/Feb for next cycle so will enjoy the festive season and try to lose some weight (should be interesting over holidays!!)
Hope everyone else is travelling well
