    It has been awhile thing where very hectic packing and putting stuff into storage and now it's our last night in the Cape. We have had a magical time here and haven't really stopped other than appointments at the clinic and to rest the day of transfer. I had 14 embryo's the day of transfer there where 10 A grade transferred 2 and 8 went into storage then we waited. Blood test last friday confirmed pregnant and today I went in for a scan to see how many before we fly to London. It is twins, now the organizing begins sort of until we get back to Australia.

    We had the good fortune to also have access to the embryoscope.

    Whilst we had a twin pregnancy success story from CFC, and 7 embies still on ice, our story had a bittersweet twist, as I lost one of my boys at 31wks, due to a "true knot" in Twin B's cord.

    I delivered during a planned c-section at 34wks, after having been hospitalized for 3wks leading up to, as I (ironically!) had a complication of Vasa Previa with Twin A.

    Notwithstanding, we view our CFC experience as having been stellar, and intend to go back - just figuring out best timing, as we navigate life with our little boy, as we head into week #7 of parenthood.

    Hope this additional info helps.

    It is such wonderful news that your little boy arrived safely and that he is doing well. I am also terribly sorry for your loss of your other little boy. It must have been a heart wrenching situation to be in - bittersweet sounds like a bit of an understatement. That you managed to deliver a live baby at the end of such a stressful pregnancy sounds little short of a miracle. Congratulations to you all.

    Our donor responded poorly to the process, and so to over compensate for this, Dr Edelstein pumped more drugs through her, resulting in a total over-stimulation.

    This would not have been so bad, had he been honest with us. Instead they falsely led us to believe her eggs, and then resulting embryos were great quality. According to Kimenthra and CFC, none should have been transferred or frozen!

    A lack of experience and honesty were our biggest issues with HART and Dr Edelstein, especially since both his young daughters were IVF babies, and he should have known first-hand what this journey was like.

    Dr Edelstein is ambitious and heavily debted from opening up and establishing HART. I'm not totally surprised he's gone and done a deal with CFC'ers (read: 'stolen' talent!)

    This happens in sport, so we shouldn't be surprised when this approach spills over to medicine ...

    Happy to answer any additional questions others might have.

    Best of luck.

    Thanks for responding, I remember you talking about it back then...
    I don't think the sky is falling at CFC either, I think they were going through a transitional period when some key staff left. Sounds like they are finding their feet again. I'll be going back there in Jan.

    I just read your other update too and I'm so sorry about your loss of one of your twins, that must be terribly hard and also make it bittersweet with the birth of your baby boy too.
    @babywish313 congratulations to you on being up the duff with twins no less.
    @Tahli perhaps you should start up a new roll call to get a better idea of how the stats are tracking.

    For those seeking an ED agency. EggDonationSouthAfrica (EDSA) and CFC are no longer working together. This includes being able to access the past donation histories of EDSA EDs.
    You can still access GiftOvLife, Sunshine, Baby2Mom, Nurture and ABabySA when working with CFC.
