    Aquinos my FS didn't want to support me in prescribing meds needed because we were using overseas egg donor and I think it was against their protocol, so I found an ob/gynae who specialised in fertility and also believes in immune issues. Also my gp is very helpful and has written out most of the medications and bloods that CFC wanted me on. I think CFC is the most popular clinic for women on this thread but a few have used different ones but I don't know the names of the other clinics. Good luck x

    @ECM1981, thank you for your post. I was going to contact Dr Ong to prescribe my medication, but since you've mentioned GP, might get him to prescribe. And also am am planning to see Dr M to test any immune issues, as Ive suffered from arthritis, endo, cysts, and have had laporoscopy x3 and hysteroscopy. x2 I have had 9IVF cycles and have not fallen pregnant. So was thinking of trying Dr M's medication protocol in addition with CFC medication protocol as well. All the best with your journey and I believe our dream to be moms will happen soon xo

    Hi @Aquinos77 CFC don't seem to prescribe much out of the ordinary drug wise imo. I just presented the medication list to my FS and asked if he would supply it all and he had no problem with that. He was a bit more cagey about the immune drugs (as he was yet another who didn't believe in it) but still prescribed them as it was low dose. CFC seem to prefer to do only 5 day transfers and would probably only do 3 day if you had a particularly poor response from your donor and had few embies I think.

    Hi, yes I did. This is my second DE pregnancy. We have a daughter already, who is coming up to 15 months old.

    Yes, I've been on immune protocols both times. Meds plus intralipids. Maybe it would have worked without them....I don't know. But given I have elevated NK cells I wasn't going to take the chance.

    Good luck for your c/s tomorrow @Kay2015, hope all goes well.

    Glad to hear your babies are home and well @wazbub, it's so exciting!

    AFM - we hit the 26wks mark on Wed gone. Our twins are 828 and 861 gms (yay!) and laying 'head to foot' and have been since the 6wk scan. They are also laying the length of my torso, instead of horizontally around my torso, so I still don't really look pregnant. I am tall which helps the illusion as well. The only things that have expanded is my ankles, or should I say cankles, in the last week. I think that's where the stretch marks will be!!!!!! I've broken out my trusty pairs of Sheer Relief brand pantyhose that the air hostesses wear, on my Obs suggestion, to support and counteract some of the swelling. Other than that I'm breezing through this journey, with one or two minor niggles (and corresponding whinges to DH) here and there. I'm still wearing all my normal clothes and haven't purchased any maternity clothes yet. Actually we haven't purchased anything at all (baby wise) yet, not even a singlet. I can't help thinking it will jinx us, and if I go unexpectedly DH can pop into Baby Bunting while I'm in hospital and pick up a cot and pram.


    Good luck to every girl that's cycling, or about to, and ECM, this is your time this time, you've been so thorough with your preparation and picking a new donor. I will jump for joy when you get your BFP. Don't forget to get your DH to leave a sample when you are at CFC this time round, it take the pressure off and gives you more options.

    @Kay2015 and @wazbub, I can't believe that we will all be mummy's by the time the first anniversary comes around of that night we were all sitting there eating tapas and talking about our long journeys and our parenthood hope and dreams.

    Big congratulations to those who have just had their precious babies. It's really exciting and gives me hope :-)

    I've finally heard back from the clinic saying my donor has had all her screening done and so far all is good. They are just waiting on one more blood test then I'll get my treatment plan. After a big wait I can't wait to get started and get ready to be over in CT in July.

    I'm looking forward to reading about all those who will be heading over in the next couple of months. Good luck :-)

    Yes congratulations to all the moms and yr beautiful blessings. It definitely gives us hope and excitement. All the best for those who are preparing to go to SA as well.
    Were hoping to be there in July as well, this is wow going into the unknown- but it is reassuring that there are ladies on this site that has experienced it all. @HB13, I am really excited today that I finally reserved my donor and spoke with Kim, she was reluctant for me to reserve my donor too soon without me seeing my new FS yet which is in 2 weeks time. I mentioned to her that I have my results from previous IVF clinic and will send that to CFC next week. Cant wait
