    I don't feel much different with the exception this time my boobs don't hurt but last time did. I've had some strange symptoms though from a gland coming up under my arm (went away in 24hours) and slight dizziness throughout the day. And serious insomnia last few days but wondered if I was just anxious.

    12week scan! Amazing I can't believe you have been pregnant for three months now! how have you gone? Any morning sickness? It will be great to move forward from there.

    @Malak: Good to hear that your DH is feeling better. Hope on Thurs, the urologist can give him a better idea what's going on.
    @JenniwithanI: I hope you sleep better tonight. I don't sleep very well because I've to go to the loo so much at night. I had have the same problem with prednisolone last time so I can't tell if this is steroid or really pregnant effect. Good that your body produces progesterone naturally. DrM is a big believer of support due to immune issue so I have happy to keep it up. I don't know when to wean off, though. It seems to have a huge different in timeline for different women!

    @MGCBertie: Ya, following you on the other thread. Wow, 12 weeks! So fast! YOu mentioned that DrM is your OB but you have been getting scans with a different Dr? I haven't consulted him since last intralipid. Initially, i was planning to have him does all the consultation and have his care. Skip the OB and go public. Since I'm seeing a new Dr to manage the intralipid, I feel like having extra consultations are just waste of effort at this point and could be confusing as you know DrM seems to have very different view sometime. His protocol is like drawing out of a hat! The new Dr is happy to take care of me until 12 weeks anyway. And he is easy to get hold off with phone call. I just got a bill in the mail for intralipid. Ouch. $650 OOP. Look like another monopoly business in perth. Strange, his other patient, who shared a room with me the other day, told me that she only paid $600. Perhaps this is special DrM's patient price. Anyway, no complain, as long as the bub is healthy and growing.

    FX about your scan tomorrow!!!! Would love to hear the update.
    @DeterminedOne: PM you.

    Jenni - the thing about the gland just caught my eye... I had glands under both armpits go up and down constantly during my pregnancy, and they were often quite tender too. I think for me it happened in the second half though, but I can't remember. Anyway, it stopped after I had DS. Random symptom though, hey?

    Jenni...actually the gland under my left arm worried me heaps the first three months, but it's stopped now.

    Bbhope... I've signed off from IVFA now, but had a 7 week u/s with them before I left. Now I am just seeing Dr M as my ob, and had an 8 week u/s with him. This 12 week u/s is a big technical one, and had to be done in a specialised place (not the obs room, and not just the local u/s places).

    The 12 week scan was this morning (at 12w5d) and was such a relief, as everything seems to look fine. The technician said that the baby is very active, cheeky and was causing him grief as it was moving around so much!! Amazing to see little fingers and toes, and it even waved at us once (though DH missed that as he was looking elsewhere!!). Heartbeat 153 bpm, and measures 6.3cm. I asked if he could tell the sex, but he said no, it's too early. I thought I'd read that some people do find out at the 12 week mark - which test is it? Funnily, DH commented afterwards he thinks it's a boy, because he thought he saw "boy bits"!!

    I go back to see Dr M on Friday, but am a bit worried that the official report won't be in, as they said this morning that it usually takes a week. Why didn't they tell me that when I booked it four weeks ago, as I would have made a later appointment with Dr M - too late to change the appointment now, as I've already booked the day off worked, and the school has already contracted the casual teacher. So I asked if they could mark it urgent, so fingers crossed, as otherwise there won't be much to discuss with Dr M expect pay him!!

    Congrats Bertie that's great news! Im so so happy for you xxx you should be able to find out at your 20 week scan if you want to know. I think some people find out earlier if you have the harmony test done.

    I'm still following along with everyone and wishing you guys all the best 😀

    Default Yay

    Congrats JenniwithanI and BBhope! Sounds like things are coming along well, wahoo!

    And Bertie, I am sooo happy everything is looking good for you also.

    Malak, that is a horrible thing for your hubby to go through. Our journey is hard enough as it is without any added stress. I hope your next experience is much more positive.

    Any gals in Brisbane with donor conceived bubs that would be interested in catching up? I would love my bub to know other children who were also donor conceived so they have peers to talk to about it. I have been digging around all the donor conceived pages etc and haven't found any Brisbane meet ups. We have gay friends with donor conceived children but would be even better if it was our same special circumstances. If anyone is interested please PM me. Nothing too regular, maybe once a month even for coffee. Just interested in having the kids know each other so they feel like they can chat if it's ever helpful to them.

    Thinking of you all. x

    @MGC Bertie what a wonderful story and how you have signed off from IVFA that is truly fantastic. The baby sounds happy, healthy and love that it's a cheeky bub! Really happy for you. It certainly goes to show that it really is a miracle and never give up.

    Thank you for the update that you and Sariel had the gland too - mine has gone down now but good to know I wasn't alone. Can I ask - did you feel what I would describe as a pressure almost warm gas across the tummy from time to time. I guess it's mild pain and dissipates quite quickly but I feel it quite regularly especially when lying or sitting. Almost feels like I need to go to the toilet but passes so quickly I don't. Would be great to know if what I have described it's something others have experienced. X

    So we had the appointment with the urologist and at first he said that the only hope to have a child was DS or adoption. That was until I challenged him about mTESE.

    He said that with mTESE they could end up with no testicles and be left on hormone replacements for life. Is there any truth to this?

    The results showed steroli only and does not show baby sperm or anything.

    It is very difficult to be on a train and not cry.

    Sooo girls Skype appointment with DrP went amazing!!!! 😃👏 the fact that he told me my Dr was a waste of time and he didn't know what he was doing was a massive relief (basically called him an idiot and that he has no idea what he is talking about)!!! There are some test that he's requested us to do that the Drs here having done and that are a stand out that should have been done! Inhibit B and cystic fibrosis! I've been tested for AMH (at least they got one test right) which is 21.4 He couldn't believe they had sent me for tests that we clearly didn't need...He wants these test done then we will have another Skype call. He's give DP 50/50 chance on sperm retrieval if the inhibin B comes back normal...he was so disgusted that the dr we where seeing here didn't know about mTESE and wanted us to do a MESA and that it would be timed in with my cycle it is so important if you only have a few sperm! I had such a sigh of relief when he was talking to us!!! Finally some who treats us like we are ppl and not just another number clocking up the stats!! He was straight down the line but comforting. He was happy to answer any questions our consult went for 40mins and to have a joke TODAY MY🌟HOPE🌟HAS BEEN RESTORED 😃 understand that there still a chance that they will find nothing but we will know that we tried everything in our power to get the best possible treatment and specialist. WA are really behind the times!!! Bring on the next stage of the journey 😃

    Thank you so much for all your support 💞 and knowledge!
