    Hi all

    Did anyone request additional tests for their donor? The "treatment request form" indicates that this is our choice, and I know my husband will want to review in great detail whether we should request something additional! Personally I don't even know what other tests to consider....

    Any input gratefully received,
    Thanks
    Kay

    Great news on the rainbow test Miss Sagi.

    Kay, I didn't ask for any additional tests from EDSA. They provided a good medical history, a keirsey test, handwriting and a drawing. The one thing I did ask for was information on previous cycles (pregnancy rates), which I would do again. I would only use a proven donor as that way CFC knows the medication doses to get the optimal results. (Forgive my expression, I'm on tylenol #3s today).

    Kay2015, for our original donor we requested AMH testing as she had not donated before and we wanted to make sure she had good ovarian reserve, although due to her BMI we had to chose a different donor in the end. As our second donor had donated with success last year we did not need the AMH tested in the end. I would personally only bother with AMH if your donor is unproven or didn't have good results for a previous donation

    I also requested a couple of the genetic tests that wouldn't take too long for the results to come through, just to rule them out (like sickle cell) but this was only because they were the cheaper tests, so I thought why not? If you have concerns I would suggest just to do some research on each of them to compare risk vs cost vs time taken for results.

    We requested AMH and it was money well spent as it turned out that our young donor had a very low ovarian reserve. We moved to another donor and didn't do AMH for her as she'd donated before and that had been successful. I think it cost about $70AUD.

    Hi all, I've been off the radar for a while but have tried to catch up on the threads.

    Canuck, I'm so sorry to her your sad news, stay strong and grieve and once ready, hit the road again! I did and glad I did with two on board now lol!

    Crabby, I experienced bad thoughts and anxiety and I swear I was clinically depressed though not diagnosed...the first two months were awful and just like you said, I wasn't even happy and delighted with such great news of being pregnant. I've been better now for the last 2 weeks since I stopped my tonnes of pills but even then both my DH and I have moments when we totally freak out! Well be having 3 under 3!!!! Its frightening, overwhelming and scary!
    If you wonna PM me re bad thoughts, I'm happy to have a further chat.

    We had our nuchal scan yesterday and we also did the blood test that determins any gene or chromosomal abnormalities as well as sex. Well, we are all good no abnormalities or other nasties and both bubs looked absolutely gorgeous! DH and myself were in tears when looking at these two wriggling. We also know that one is 100% a boy as the test confirmed Y chromosome in my blood. And the other was 70% a girl based on the scan. So one of each for us

    Wishing all the best for the girls heading off to SA soon! And all the strength for other expectant mummies and fresh mummies ! Much love to you all!

    @Devaki, great news on your scan.
    I think everyone goes through emotions at some stage. Interesting that your harmony results confirmed a chromosone for sex. I received my results on paper this morning and it doesn't mention it at all...spewing! Although I had one confirmed as being a boy from the scan.

    Canuck

    So sorry about the miscarriage and whether the illness caused it or not, it couldn't have helped BUT remember, we generally miscarry for a reason. This one just wasn't meant to be.

    Re you being Rh neg. I don't know about bleeding during pregnancy but in terms of the next pregnancy, it should only be an issue if your SD is Rh pos BUT in Australia OB's automatically give any RH- woman what we call an 'Anti-D' immunisation either during first pregnancy, after first birth or after a 1st miscarriage irrespective of the father's blood type. If you haven't been given it yet - ask your OB or FS or at the Hospital when you have the D&C.
