Destined to watch the Jets play badly all year.
NIPT for twins near Hamilton? Anyone have a suggestion where this can be done? I had a very bad prognostic US then had to come to ON for a work trip, looking to get the testing ASAP. Thank you!!!
looThanks, Ladies for all the support! Wen, I've been thinking about you :) Grovehill, the traditional maternal screen doesn't work for twins but there is a NIPT called Harmony (blood test) where they can distinguish the DNA between the twins. I'm thinking this is what you had too. The CVS process scares me a little, how did you find the needle? Manageable?

want2babiesloo, I did cvs on twins. it did hurt, I was shaky afterwards but no other problems. one of my twins had nt of 5.5mm, that's why I did the test. I don't remember why I didn't do harmony, but went ahead with cvs. does harmony give you a definite answer? good luck to you, I know the wait for results is super hard. in a previous pregnancy, I did cvs on another fetus that had nt of 5mm. both babies turned out to be ok. hang in there.

I have already had enough of winter...
amp77I will give you your snow if you take away the freezing cold days, freezing rain, and insane winds. And shovel my driveway heehee

HopefulrealistI'm with amp! I like skiing but not enough to make up for how much I hate cold, wet, icy weather. Gah, I almost wiped out just now...oh winter...

MurriedWishing you wonderful news today.

cj123Thanks everyone! Our clinic let us know today that of our 22 eggs, 20 were mature, and after ICSI 10 have fertilized! Hoping they make it to day five!

kristeen033That's great news!!! Good luck :D
Jan 11 2017 10:15 AM
well i start Lupron on Jan 27th. Start stims on Feb 4th. Retrieval will be approx Feb 14th. Then a long 2 weeks later we will get the results from the PGS. I hope and pray we get at least 2 normal embryos
CdnHockeyGalGood luck! You'll probably want to join the Feb IVF thread. http://ivf.ca/forums/topic/94034-ivf-cycle-buddies-february-2017/

Finally on CD 1 next cycle will start a fresh IVF cycle. Hoping to get some good embryos
MurriedHappy to hear you are pushing forward.
Jan 09 2017 12:46 PM
RenaeThanks Murried Its been really hard. I was only pregnant for 1 week but I've never lost before i think about him/her everyday. I got the start date today that i start Lupron on Jan 27th. MY last IVF i did short protocol this time im going back to a long protocol. Long Protocol is what gave me my son. So hoping it works again. The 2 weeks for the PGS results will be hard
Jan 09 2017 07:03 PM
MurriedTransfers are hard, we have so much hope for what could be that we sometimes are not prepared for a negative result, only time will make it easier. I wish you all the best with this protocol and looking forward to updates.
