    Ta heaps for the Dr M info @Charlie74. I only have 1.5 weeks til my FET so I think I'll wait & see what the outcome is of this cycle. If it's unsuccessful again then I'll definitely make an apt to see Dr M. I have slightly high NK cells & MTHFR.
    Wow @Chiefsgirl. The E-health deal sounds brilliant. Thanks for the tip. I'll check it out.
    For any girls thinking about doing Intralipids at Epworth Richmond. LB's nurse sends the Intralipids script down to Slades, you collect and pay $32 for the solution. Then you pay for the hospital day admission which for me is covered by PHI.

    @Corbes, I'm another one of those 'don't ask enough questions people' I'm afraid! However as I learn more and more about various treatments and so forth I am getting better at it.

    My first appointment was very much "I want a baby, can you make it happen?!" My next appointment (1 fresh transfer, 1 frozen transfer and 1 MC later) I think I'll be going in with the lead question of "I still don't have a baby. What else can we try?!"

    The girls on this board have been very supportive and made great suggestions. I did ask about progesterone support post transfer, but was told that I didn't need it. Evidently my BT confirmed that I naturally produce plenty of that on my own. However, you might like to ask about it, or at the very least ask to have your levels tested just in case yours are low.

    Possibly also ask about available counselling services offered though whatever clinic you choose to go through. It seems there is no easy way of doing things with IVF and most people have hurdles to overcome along the way - so appropriate support is crucial.

    The other big factor for me was/is the money side of things. Try and get a good overall view of what your real out of pocket costs will be. I was very surprised that Day Surgery fees (for EPU, frozen embryo transfer and sperm extraction), Anaesthetist fees, embryo storage and some of the medications were not included in the overall cost of IVF. (Yep, a rookie mistake on my part!)

    Good luck at your appointment,

    Blossom

    Hi ladies, no pic of bob/bobette today. But he used the Doppler and I heard the HB. First time using the Doppler. Bub was moving around a lot so he found it a little difficult to find HB. But was strong at 153.

    Julie I'm not going to buy a Doppler. I've heard it can stress you out if you can't find the HB using it so I don't want to stress myself out anymore than I need to!

    That's fab news @Chiefsgirl! Super glad for you that all is well

    I have heard the same thing about the dopplers actually. I met a girl at the hospital who had one and she said it was like an obsession for her. And because she was not trained to use it, and her bub was good at 'hiding,' she said it caused her more grief than relief.

    I reckon once your bub starts moving about and you can feel it, that will be all the reassurance you'll need

    Default IVF over 40 #19

    Great news @Chiefsgirl! Yeah good point about the Doppler, I'd be doing exactly that - checking all the time. Might have to rethink..

    @Corbes Yep...I'd be asking what he would do differently for you in terms of protocols, drugs and dosages. Does he believe in using supplements like HGH, Melatonin etc for egg quality or doing things like Endo scratches to try to maximise implantation??

    Is he a firm believer in Day 5 transfers?? Do you have the option of transferring 2 embryo's if that's what you and DH wanted due to age?? How many stimulated Cycles (regardless of transfers whether they be fresh/frozen) is reasonable to do given all the factors before throwing in the towel with your OE's??

    Does he believe in immune issues causing problems?? Will he do all the appropriate testing and implement a basic immune protocol if you want to do one regardless of his beliefs if he doesn't??

    If I think of anymore I'll post them Good Luck with your appointment tomorrow!!!!
