Also, whilst CFC is a little more organised in their admin dept, I'd take Wazza's (and Charlotte's) level of dedication and care far superior (yes, it comes with a price tag, but when you fail with yet another trial & error "vanilla" IVF vs a premium care treatment where Waz throws absolutely everything to help you succeed, it'll all worth it in my eyes. Not to mention the emotional drain, stress and strain on your relationship.
If possible, I would strongly recommend your friend see Wazza instead. If it helps, Wazza/Charlotte got me a BFP on my first FET. It may have been fate, but the extreme tuning of my body with all the meds, vitamins, strict instructions for both myself and DH and testing to ensure all was tailored to my scenario immensely put me at ease which is also another big factor.
All Dr Ng prescribed was elevit! Enough said~

@MamaKes@Chyna @Gagingi ... looks like I'm joining the bed rest club too! Freaked out last Thurs due to med-fresh bleed (I swore AF was here!) and when through a mass emotional crash ready to throw the towel (was so depressed, I stopped taking meds that night ... a BIG no-no in hindsight) hence been MIA. Luckily I had a BT the next day (I think same day as Wazza's bday!) and Kate squeezed me in to see Charlotte. If anyone witnessed an absolute mess bawling uncontrollable, that would have been yours truly. Charlotte found a mass of blood in the lining but also a sack that she wasn't expecting to see at 5wks (phew!). That woman is amazing and had me almost back to full sanity within 5 minutes. Got given Cyklokapron to control the bleeding which stopped within 48hrs (plus the lovely valium) and send home for 1 wk bed rest and only allowed out for the intralipids. I baulked until I saw Wazza put you gals up for 2-4 wks! Back for a scan & BT tomorrow and hugs & for everyone!
@Heyside - hope all those side effects have since calmed down, have been thinking of you often and hope all is well!
@mummymaybe - Hows it going on is your result any clearer?
@sumteng - Oh no hun sorry to hear you are going through this. Great all is well though and the sac has been seen, sounds like charlotte was great. Look after yourself and make sure you do rest. Thanks hun yes side effects have calmed down and all is good here x
@Chyna - Great that yiu are having a good week and doing nothing sounds like a good plan. Wow 14w time flies x
Thanks for checking in @Heyside the line is pretty much gone now, can't see it in a photo at all. Looks like Sunday's bloods will be negative.
We'll do another FET straight away with our last emby then it's back to square one.
@sumteng sorry to hear of your scare. It sounds awful. I'm glad you could get in to see Charlotte so quickly - we are blessed to have such awesome and caring FSs. It must have been such a relief to see the sac and great that the meds are working. It is boring being on bedrest, but it's what our little ones need right now. Intralipids become a highlight which is hilarious! Let us know how you go with tomorrow's scan. Big hugs and an extra sprinkling of babydust.
thx @Chyna ... Charlotte may have been a little stunned when I asked if bed rest meant I could still do light chores/cooking, walk stairs etc :P I just can't sit still! I felt like a 2 yr old in a very lovely principal's office being read my rights LOL. Lots of baby dust to you and shall go practice this guilt-free lounging thing
