[B]Mami2b-[/B] 3 embryos is still a great number. they make it to blast!
[B]Marylander-[/B] Congrats on the a great NT scan report!! I did not even know you can find out the sex during this scan. Congrats on being on team blue!! Any names yet? I wonder if my girl is a boy too lol
[B]Kcarey-[/B] Well that’s good news that they think your tubes have some spillage does this mean its possible to have a miracle nature baby? They prewarned me too of my high risk of ectopic. They said they just have to always do early USs in order to catch it. My ectopic never showed up on the US. If you have any hope that your tubes may work that is a good sign. I am sorry your RE is so pricey for IVF that is how mine was too. I really hope consult #3 is a lot less expensive. Awesome news about the antral follicle count!
[B]Zoey-[/B] Awesome beta! Congrats, any word on US?
[B]Sugar-gilr-[/B] Thank you! a lining of 7 a week after hysteroscopy is great news! Sounds like your FET will be next week!
[B]AFM-[/B] I had my Upenn appt yesterday. I left not feeling awesome lol. We saw Dr. Wang and Dr. Romas. Dr. Wang wanted to do a 3D US to look at the uterus. She said she sees a dip in the inside of the uterus but she feels like its on the side and not the top of the uterus. She said she think I have been misdiagnosed with a heart shaped uterus and she thinks I have adenomyosis. She said this will not effect anything with fertility or pregnancy. My OB said he is not going to be going off of that information. He said he is going off of NHs hysteroscopy. So now I am even more confused about stuff I did not want to be confused about. Then Dr.Romas talked about the Lovenox. She said if you ask an RE about lovenox they would say to stay on it. If you ask a fetal maternal medicine doctor they would say stop it. She said they do not have enough research proving any blood clotting disorders effect pregnancy. She told me that hetro MTHFR they have found to lower risk for gestational diabetes and preeclampsia. Which I am not hetro I am homo so that means nothing to me. She said they do not want me to fall and hurt myself and bleed to death so they would prefer all patients not even take baby aspirin. So basically I felt like that appointment just made things worse. My husband left and said well this is good news we no long have a heart shaped uterus or any concerns. He said to my OB well now we can be taken off high risk bc this doctor said everything we have been told by NH is wrong. My OB laughed and said nope once you have been classified as MTHFR and heart shaped uterus I cannot just ignore it. So it looks like we are back to our jerk fetal maternal medicine doctor locally. I am currently still taking Lovenox.
On a totally random side note. Upenn is ranked really high in PA. I was shocked how disgusting and dirty Upenn was. They had trash all over the hall ways. Trash cans were over flowing everywhere you looked. They had stains all over the walls. The bathroom looked like like a dirty road side gas station bathroom. It was the dirtiest hospital I had even been in. I would never want to stay there lol.[/quote]
E- What a pain! Sorry your still confused by all of this… such mixed theories and opinions your getting! When we had our first OB appointment, she told us that she was happy to continue with the Lovenox because it is such a low dose, and it is being used to prevent… not treat. She said that they will monitor it throughout to see whether or not it needs to be increased and that I will stay on it until we give birth. I couldn’t believe it honestly! If she had disagreed with it, we had decided prior that we would seek out another OB… But I am glad that we won’t have to know. One less complication to deal with! How are you feeling? Still spotting from that darn SCH? I was so glad to read that it is shrinking! Thank god!
Kelly - I am sorry your RE pissed you off. How strange to compare like that! I hope that NH knocks his socks off with the results of the trial and mini-IVF. My previous RE didn’t perform mini either and thought that it was a joke… I am in the same boat as Mami – he also corrected me when I said M/C the first time… He said “what you had was a chemical”. I was so put off by him but we were already in too deep to switch. So finding NH was a blessing, because we had just decided to stop seeing him all together! I hope everything works out well with your new RE though and he DOES get you prego regardless of his attitude. OR better yet, that your consult with CRM is exactly the place for you to be and you choose them! What kind of meds will you need for conventional? Oh & as for the t/v us and putting it in… Honestly, every single tech that I have ever seen has asked me to place it myself… No joke! My RE never did… and neither did NH though.
MMP - I am glad to hear your procedure went well!! That’s funny about the lady next to you and SO rude about the other with the hair comment. I’m glad Dr Luk walked out looking like that too!
Marylander - Congrats on the baby boy! & on the great test results! How exciting!
Kitty - That’s awesome that you passed your GD test I hope all is well!
Jaime - Thinking of you… I hope you’re doing ok <3
Zoey - Great Beta!
Sorry if I left anyone out… I hope everyone else is doing great!
AFM: I have my 11 week appt coming up next week! & I can’t wait to see our LO again! I have since used the doppler again (twice)… and found the HB right away! Both times that I have used it the HR was 180 and fluttering right along! It’s such an amazing thing and seriously makes me feel so much more connected… Which was hard in the beginning since I have had losses in the past. It is still a little surreal though…
& we “officially” announced it on facebook… NOT planned until after my 11 week appointment, but oh well. DH’s grandma of all people… Accidentally called us out on Fb. & we didn’t have the heart to tell her or ask her to take it down! It wasn’t even a post about us… But about her 56th wedding anniversary, and how her husband has been an amazing father, grandfather and great grandfather to there “3 beautiful great grand daughters and one on the way (Congratulations Eric & Amanda)” Ughhhh… We were both dumb founded when we read it. Luckily she has like 30 friends, most of which were related to… But you know how that goes, someone likes it… then their friends can see it and so on! Luckily my sister was able to come over and snap a few pictures quick then we announced it later that day. We were debating on doing it this weekend anyway, today is our 6 year wedding anniversary so oh well… just a week before planned.
Here are a few of our announcement pics…
