    That's cheap compared to mine.... $250 initial plus $3500 management fee. No mention of cost of bloods or ultrasounds. I know they do urine rest each visit too. But it's worth it in my opinion. We spent so much getting to this point I want the best care. Plus I'm dealing with a potential cervix issue which time will tell

    Default IVF babies due June/July/August 2017

    It is expensive @jen8303

    Most of your bloods will be bulk billed except nipt.

    You will get money back on ultrasounds. They have to be done by the ultrasound techs (sonographers) then reported by the Drs (Radiologist). The skill and detail involved takes years and years of training and the radiology clinics have much better machines than the obs. They are looking for very specific things on your NT and morph scans. Where as ob is just looking at heart rate, fluid level and will refer for further imaging if anything looks weird.

    There is also a cost issue, a good ultrasound machine costs over $200k and most obs have more basic machines that cost around $100-150k. They are good but don't offer as much detail.

    Anyway just thought I would explain.

    They do usually have ultrasound but the only usually check for small things, like a heartbeat in early days, and normal looking growth in later... the big ultrasounds are with sonographers who are specialist doctors qualified in interpreting ultrasound images, your OB doesn't have this knowledge so that's why they send you off to a specialist. It does suck having to pay all this money though!
    Thanks that makes complete sense

    I figured it might have been the case for the ultrasounds but man I wish we had a good public hospital and I would go public

    Ah well what's another $4k after spending $60k to get to this point

    May I ask what pregnancy symptoms you ladies experience? So far I've only had slightly sore boobs but that's now gone and I'm worried... I'm 7 weeks today. 2 weeks away for another scan! I'll take the tww any day over this wondering if everything is ok

    I've had sore boobs on and off and heavy feeling too. Blue veins all over them and my stomach and chest too. Nausea comes in waves too. Having said that, with my first I had no symptoms at all so they really don't tell you much.
    I hate the waiting in all this. Still have 9 days til my OB appt where I'll get to see my bubbas. Wish I could sleep through til then lol
