Hi @Blossom74 the nurse at my current clinic said they do a guided ultrasound to place it in the best spot and to ensure the embryo is not placed to high to reduce the chance of it moving into the fallopian tubes in the early stages and causing an ectopic pregnancy.
So...'Offspring' just got a bit more realistic. Poor Nina :-( She'll probably start posting on this thread now. ;-)

Thank you ladies for your best wishes for tomorrow.
@Tahli, how long were you on Metformin and do you have any tips to share? I was told the side effects may last a week but I have them permanently. I first got nausea and diarrhoea (tmi) and then got severe conscription. Then came zero appetite which stayed along with nausea. I have tried to take it right after meal, in between meal, drinking more fluids etc but nothing has worked in fact the symptoms have gone worse. I particularly think Metformin with Ovidrel has created a really bad combination.
Oh and the nurse called today around 4:30 saying I haven't submitted my PGD consent form when I had given it to them some time ago, they've lost it. She said we won't submit the embies for PGD if we don't have it by tomorrow morning. I felt like screaming. Will now print and sign it all again..
Dotty27 the figures I put up yesterday were with Warren. He also charges for EPU $515 ($265 back from Medicare with full safety net), ET $170 ($83 back from Medicare) and cycle management $215 ($95 back from Medicare). The supplements and medications also add up with him. I'd say it is worth it though as at least it has a chance of working (unless he tells you otherwise).
Mongol I was on Metformin for 9 months. I took it with food, split the dose, and also increased it in increments (I was on 2000, so week 1 was 500 only; then week 2 500 morning and 500 evening; week 3 was 500 morning, noon, and night; then week 4 was 1000 AM and 1000 PM). I think poor @Tahli had an unusually awful reaction to it and if you've tried the above, you might be intolerant of it too?
Pregnant for the first-time?
