@JenniwithanI welcome hun & congrats! Great that you have lots of frosties too for future siblings!
@Rocky27 thanks hunny. I'm hoping when I meet with my OB she'll do another scan.
@lileitak yep you have to pay hun. And unfortunately for you, Crinone costs more than pessaries do. Could you ask Lynn if you could use pessaries instead?
@Essence08 welcome & congrats hun! Yep, BT's are $135 each! I opted not to do the last BT. You could always tell them that you don't want the 3rd BT - and instead just get it done bulk billed through your GP?
@akakura I hear you about being useless at work! I spend my days counting down the seconds til home time!
Have you booked in to do Harmony etc?
@jasminecook85 1 more sleep for you hun, hope you receive some wonderful news tomorrow 😊

Thanks for the input all. That is massively annoying. I kinda feel like we've been duped. I'll have to go back through my paperwork, but I don't recall being told or reading that you're out of pocket once you've reached the first BT. I'd like to say if all goes well with the next BT goes fine, I may skip the third and just wait for the scan. But I probably won't. And I probably won't push Lynn on the Crinone either. Tho I will ask about the pessaries. They must know that if you invest so much already, you're probably not going to push them on the rest.
Hi Girls, thanks for all the welcomes!
Am I crazy??..... but I just did another pregnancy test - a digital one just to be sure and now the test indicates I'm another week along. Hopefully that's a sign of HCG rising!
Regarding payment from here - I'm with Monash IVF Melbourne and was just informed I'll now pay for my bloods and ultrasound from now after my first positive BT.
I guess the costs are to get you pregnant - after that it's treated like a normal pregnancy.
Would love to know thoughts - I've been reading up and at my time of first blood test I should be around 120 HCG. I then read if it's 30-40% higher it could mean multiples? My first BT on Wed at 4 weeks and 1 day was an HCG level of 216. Next BT on Wed.
@JenniwithanI yep the 2 follow up Monash BT's cost almost $300 in total! Such a rip off. You don't Have to have them though hun, so you can always opt not to.
I think quite a few ladies on here @akakura, @TeamCarts & others had high HCG's. But scans showed just the one bub. So doesn't necessarily mean multiples hun, perhaps a strong singleton 😊
Jeniwithanl, my first blood test came back at 1270 HCG I think it was from memory. My nurse told me not to stress & it's still within the normal range. She said the HCG varies from person to person & that it doesn't necessarily mean multiples. How many embies did they put in?
Aargh so $135 each for two blood tests and $170 a fortnight for the next six weeks for crinone plus the initial cycle costs - my goodness this little Bub is already sending me broke . Obviously I'll pay whatever I have to and they know it!!
@layshoja wonder if we'll end up having babies the same day.
