    I wanted to buy one for each embryo I lost or didn't take but my husband doesn't approve (yet).

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!!!

    Thanks, 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?

    loo, 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.

    Thanks 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

    Transfers 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.
