@BIB, how is your LO going with the dairy intolerance? Any more vomit-attacks or is she better since you altered her diet?
@faithandhopellove I've just spoken with my gorgeous friend. She said if you call the NSW representative they'll put you in contact with the photographer who is linked to your hospital. The photographers have usually experienced loss themselves. She said they'll take beautiful photos and you can look at them when you're ready, or not. The photos are there to help you grieve as well as a keepsake. They may help to take the pressure off you on the day if you're not able to physically be with your little poppet.
@tuxcat I like your 'get this show on the road once and for all' attitude! You go get 'em tiger!! If I can get my lining to 6mm on Monday I fly out on Thur 19th May, so still 15 sleeps to go. You can't get rid of me that easily!
@Blossom74 Speaking of 80's classics. It's a shame there isn't a Perfect Match type of game-show for matching ED's to recipients!!
Don't worry @Maxwellsmum that's me. I go to Hawaii and they're tell me they have a 100% success rate for Aussies at the moment. Of course I am the first to get that bfn! So typical of my luck.
Oh and I asked about transferring 3 next time and they said it is not allowed in the states.
@Lastchance75 This is off the Sher website, so a shameless copy and paste...
"In the U.S.A., where presently there is no legislated limit placed on the number of embryos that can be transferred, the final decision as to how many embryos to transfer (within reason) is up to the fully informed patient/couple to decide. This having been said, the Hippocratic oath that we as physicians have pledged to uphold, compels us at all times to avoid knowingly doing harm to our patients. Thus for us, there should always be a self-imposed limit on the number of embryos we would be willing to transfer (in a given situation), at one time. Heaven knows…if anything positive came out of the outrageous “Octomom” debacle, it is that physicians have a responsibility to practice restraint in this regard."
