WOOHOOOOOOOOO @ABG79! Sorry to send the congrats to you late, but wow, those numbers look good! So so happy for you!
Hi @OneOfTheseDays! Welcome to our thread!
I can't commend much about the nurses saying things contrary to agreed protocol with the FS. I have only had 1 IVF and went in cold not knowing much, so I just followed instructions without a lot of the details (alot of which I learnt here from these wonderful and knowledgeable ladies). The only time I scratched my head was when the nurse told me to start on Oripro pessaries when I was still on Crinone (so apparently my FS thought I had finished my script for Crinone but I was on a lower dosage) so I kind of freaked and thought I was told the wrong dosage. The nurse checked with the FS and told me it was correct and to continue as per usual. And then I had the weird Oripro which was twice the dosage of Crinone and again, she said she asked the FS and it's correct so I just followed it. Worked well so far and I think the mix up might be that they are so overworked. Sometimes they rush through things and kind of assume that everyone is on the typical protocol (like Crinone twice a day instead of once a day like me) so when you are the exception, maybe they pass on the wrong instructions.
I think for your case, the red flag would be the one that you had agreed on transferring 2 embryos and not one. But I would have thought this would be on the consent form and also signed by the FS so the nurses can't change that. I do know that Primary has a policy not to do 2 unless you are 40 and above or have had failed IVF cycles, (maybe thats why the nurse thought she should explain) I think this would have been written down somewhere as an instruction for you though if you had spoken with Dr Nick. If you are concerned, see if you speak to Dr Nick or be more assertive when you call and let the nurse know it's been agreed and ask her to check with Dr Nick? I hope Dr Nick is doing the ET for you come next week so you are more assured.
Strange that the nurses at Mel Primary seem to have a lot more say with what happens with their patients. It is certainly not the case in Sydney (they basically check with the FS about everything).
Sorry that I'm not helping much, but hey CONGRATS on those awesome numbers (10!!!! wow!) and have a good rest before ET next week too - keep us posted, we love news during the TWW as you can see!
