    As for me, we got home last Wednesday night and on Friday I had an appt with my GP to fill her in. I asked to do a HCG test, just to reassure myself. The Dr called me on Monday and the news was not good. My levels had only gone up by 10,000 in 5 days. She advised me to have a scan ASAP to see what was happening. Well I had a bit of a breakdown and was sent home from work.
    Had the scan on Tuesday and the results as on Tuesday where:
    Baby 1 - measuring 6w6d - heartbeat 147bpm - so that is really good, very happy with that
    Baby 2 - measuring 6w2d - heartbeat 92bpm - not so good.

    The comments on the report states that there is some concern for baby 2.
    I called Dr Kanakas and told him what was happening and he was not phased, he said it will all be ok and not to do any more blood tests as they mean nothing.
    I saw my GP yesterday and she said that it appears that I will most likely miscarry baby 2, so I have to have weekly scans to see what is happening.
    I had an OB I wanted but he cant see me as he says I am too high risk, so I am meeting a new OB in two weeks who deals in high risk cases.

    This might sound bad but two babies was always going to be a blessing for me, but I am over the moon if it is just one, I couldn't deal with it if I where to loose both babies.

    Fingers crossed for me ladies that at least if I don't get two babies out of this, I will definitely get one.
    Its not a good feeling seeing the 2nd baby vanishing, this happened to me with my OE when I had twins, I lost one then lost the other at 9w. After the curette I had them tested for chormosonal abnormalities and they came up positive. This was when I decided to do donor egg, not after trying one more time with my own eggs again. I was such a hard head !..

    You will be fine, you have a young donor egg and it should work out ok. Not much you can do now but pray and hope that the one strong baby will survive! I really hope it does, since I know how it feels to worry and stress. I hope all this anxiety goes away for you soon and everything turns out for the best. Good luck and may the Gods be with you...xx

    I can't even imagine being pregnant with Twins...I'm still in shock... one is a little smaller than the other, so fingers crossed that the little one hangs in there.
    Heart Rates were 136 and 106 bpm.

    @julz1974 such mixed emotions - shock, fear, happiness. HOPE!

    Hang in there, and take it day by day. Sending you vibes that everything will be ok. @Yasna is right - they're young healthy eggs - time to let them do their thing!

    Default Egg Donation in Greece #5

    Spoke to Dr Nick last night - I'm so bloody excited. He was talking about synching the donor. Next time I will call and ask about the donor. Just curious to know a bit about her, occupation, personality.

    This sounds weird... there is a new little girl around 1 year at childcare where my daughter is. She is of the same nationality as me and I look at her, she is adorable, similar features, and I see a familiarity with myself and I wonder if that will be the same for me with the donor baby as we will also be the same nationality (Greek). And I feel happiness at the possibility of that...for me, fir my hubby, for my daughter to have a sibling. Not long to go and I'm turning into excited nervous mush. Gotta pull it together and be measured - can't get my hopes tooo high.

    Thanks @Phia, I'm on thyroxine, prednisolone, plaquenil, progynova, aspirin, melatonin, synarel plus loads of supplements...then will add clexane, progesterone and antibiotics closer to transfer day...I don't even know myself anymore! But yes I definitely am positive that it will pay off, and am relieved to be doing it very differently this time to when I was doing IVF with no immune protocol.

    Exciting that you're getting closer now too! Hearing info about the donor made me so excited, really started to feel real and I think about her everyday and am so grateful! Wishing you all the best xx

    That's very exciting too @Treens73! And nerve wracking! I hope your preparations are all going well. Which clinic are you going to and how long will you be there for? I'm at Iakentro and we're there from 19 April to 2 June, with trips to the islands, UK and maybe Turkey in between visits to the clinic, not that we've planned much of the holiday but yet! Take care and hope it all goes really well for you too xx

    @Mrsl73, wow can only imagine the mixed emotions you must be feeling! I have my for you that it will all work out perfectly! Keep us updated x @julz1974 twins woohooo congratulations! @Yasna glad all is going well :-)
    Wow, a few of us heading over soon! 32 sleeps for me!!!! Starting to get pretty nervous and anxious... so much riding on this trip! It has been over 12 months since I have been on the IVF band wagon and I do not miss the anxiety of all the waiting around for results...
    I have a couple of questions for you ladies, I haven't had a skype apt with Dr N this month as he is super busy and has said all is on track for our arrival.
    Firstly, I know the cash component I have to take but do you know how the balance needs to be paid. Does Dr N accept credit card? Just trying to work out our finances and how we are going to divvy it up between cash/credit/money cards...
    Also, your thoughts on getting a gift for the donor? Did you? If so what?
    Should be a busy couple of months on this thread ladies, fingers crossed for lots of exciting news!!
    I hope everyone is well x

    @bindyboop - the balance can be paid by credit card. Dr N prefers it that way as it shows up on his books. He said that some part, if not all of the balance has to be paid by credit card
