Thanks to everyone for their kind words. Im rooting for all of you and so glad two more of you had good ultrasounds the past few days soso twins thats so exciting.

May I ask those of you that did ivf in Barbados how you picked a clinic and approximately how much does it cost ? Did you monitor at a local clinic and then go there for retreival?

I dont want to answer for the other ladies but I highly considered going there. I talked with the clinic listed as Ivf Barbados Im pretty sure that was the name. We chatted by email and Skype. They were amazing to us. The only reason we stayed in Canada is we found a doc that at that time which was over 5 years ago was able to comparibly match the price for us which I know would be impossible now. We also looked into staying at a condo with a kitchen so we could eat in and it still worked out cheaper. That was for us staying 3 weeks. They said I could do a baseline in Canada if I could find somewhere to agree to that and then start meds and not see them until cycle day 7 or stim day 4.
That was my experience which wasnt the full deal but was great.

Thanks Annababy and Aimee..I actually transfered 2, but the second embryo was not high grade that's why I never expected twins, Especially with so few symptoms.

Hey 36. Thank you. 

I agree with SLF. 

There is one infertility clinic in Barbados. it's called Barbados Fertility Center. They're just amazing. We contacted them in December and we were transfering our embryos in March. They mostly have patients from the US, Canada and England. Most of the doctors are British. Patients go there for their high success rate, their low costs and hey for the vacation. They sent me a list of tests to do. So although the Barbados clinic monitored me and gave me my protocol, I had to find a clinic in Montreal to do the scans and prepare my prescriptions in order for me to buy my medication in Canada. All my medication was covered by my insurance, so it made no sense for me to buy my medication abroad or have the Barbados clinic send them to me. You'll need to take a 2 week vacation, right before retrieval time in your case. If you have other questions, i can answer them privately, or even better, you can contact them, they respond quickly. They have a facebook page too.

I was feeling better yesterday and was hoping I was coming over the edge of the nausea and then today was one of the worst. I slept a lot to avoid feeling sick.

I just saw an article where a lady transferred two embryos and both split so she gave birth to 2 sets of identical twins. Could you imagine?! Thats too much for me. A part of me thought it would be neat if this one split, but Im definitely ok with a singleton.

With both of my other pregnancies Ive had a severe case of pregnancy induced hypertension which squeezes the placenta and tends to make the baby smaller. With my son I also had gestational diabetes was even taking 60 units of insulin a day And yet he was only 6 lbs. 9 oz. when he was born because my PIH got that bad. My daughter was 6 pounds even. So the only thing I can think is that because I have this problem thats why my babies tend to be smaller. Even now my foreign a half year-old is only 39 pounds but hes extremely tall. And yet he was only 6 lbs. 9 oz. when he was born because my pH gets that bad. My daughter was 6 pounds even. So the only thing I can think is its because I have that problem. Even now my four and a half year-old is only 39 pounds but hes very tall and my 15 month baby girl is 17lbs I just tend to have extremely small kids. The funny thing is Im 59 and my husband is 6 foot and everybody in our family is tall and on my side of the family were all big people too. 🤷🏻‍♀

Thanks JYO and Esther. 

SLF- never heard of pregnancy induced hypertension..wow! is there a chance you won't get that with this pregnancy or when you have it once you have it with all pregnancies? 

Aimeehug how are you feeling? any better? 

AFM-I am starting to get nauseous but nothing too strong. I never vomit but i feel uneasy in my stomach, especially when I am hungry. I gained 5 pounds since Barbados. I used to run almost everyday but haven't worked out at all since the transfer. maybe that's why I gained weight. I'll wait till i am 11 or 12 weeks along and start light workouts. How about you? anybody working out?

I didnt throw up for the first time yesterday!!! I still felt a little nauseous but a better day for sure. Hoping I start having more good days.

Ive been a lump on a log. Im worried about the SCH so not exercising at all. I took my dog for a 45 min walk one day and that was the most exercise Id hd in weeks and my calves hurt for two days after :o. I dont think thats good but I know some women go on bedrest for SCHs and I just want to be careful. Got my scan in a few hours. Hope I get to hear the results today.

Good luck today Aimee praying everything goes well.

Soso- yes I think if you have pih for one youll get it for all. I already have it my bp keeps going up so I see my family doc every week but now my on is taking over this week. Theyve already put me on meds and if its anything like before theyll steadily keep increasing them. It makes for a difficult oregnancy with weekly sometimes even daily visits. In the past I had to have u/s every other week and nst every week. I also have to check my own bp 3 times a day and when it reaches a certain level I have to go to the hospital to be checked out.

SLF- that sounds like such a hassle!! Too bad its certain youre going to get it.

Ultrasound seemed to go well. Measuring about the right size and we saw the heartbeat and saw it punching and moving! It looks a little more human like now. They didnt say anything about the abnormalities or SCH, have to follow up with my doc about that, but I assume it cant be too bad if they didnt have to tel me anything right away.

Lots of good scans today it sounds like!

Aimee Congrats on being discharged from the fertility clinic! How far along are you now?

Annababy - thats great news on your ultrasound! What a relief to see that little HB eh?!

SLF - I hope the hypertension is well controlled this time and allows you to have as few appointments and tests as possible.

Soso - hopefully the nausea doesnt pick up anymore! Im feeling similar to you with the working out....I was working out 3-5x/week until transfer and other than trying to get out walking I havent done anything since transfer. It makes me nervous to do anything too intense during the first trimester eventhough I know they say its completely safe!

AFM - I had my 2nd ultrasound today and baby had a HR of 167 and was measuring a day ahead at 8w2d! The clinic said we could discharge today or have one more ultrasound at 10 weeks as reassurance to help with my worries because of our history with recurrent miscarriage in early pregnancy. We opted for another chance to see our wee babe at 10 weeks of course!

Aimeehug - your clinic has you stop both progesterone and estrace at 10 weeks? How much estrace and progesterone do they have you on? My clinic had me half my estrace dose at 8 weeks then stop completely at 9 weeks but continue with my progesterone until 10 weeks (or said I could go until 12 weeks if I wanted). When I asked about why we stop the estrace earlier they said that the baby begins to form its sex parts around 8 weeks and they dont want too much estrogen in my system particularly if our baby is a boy...what does everyone elses clinics have them doing with meds?

Yikes. I hope it doesnt affect anything. I just double checked. Supposed to take same dose all the way till May 3., which will be when Im 10 weeks.
I am still taking prometrium 100mg, 2 capsules three times a day and estrace 2mg twice a day. I wondered why they make me stay on the estrace so long. They never said.

Hi Everyone!

 

I'm still getting caught up on this thread, but I finally feeling cautiously optimistic enough to chime in, since my due date is December 8th. 

 

I had my FET on March 22, in Greece. After a failed round of own-egg IVF in Canada, we moved on to donor eggs and went abroad. This was my second transfer. My first transfer, in January, failed after I didn't absorb progesterone. I was pretty devastated, because I had a feeling that the transfer would have worked otherwise. Sure enough, after switching to PIO, the second transfer has (so far) been a success. We transferred two untested embryos. I initially had both implant, and we saw two strong heartbeats at 6 weeks. But the second twin was much smaller. Last week (week 7), the heartbeat had slowed significantly and growth had stopped. The doctor had predicted that this would be a vanishing twin. It looks like he was right. I felt a ton of sadness, but also a bit of relief. I've been so worried about having one baby. The idea of two is daunting. But it's also sad because this will probably be my only pregnancy and I always wanted to have two children.

 

Looking forward to catching up on the whole thread!

Great news Aimee, JYO and Annababy! I am very happy for you all.

Welcome BengalMom! Really hoping it's a smooth sail for all of us from now on.  smile.png

 

My doctor has me on :

- estrace (10mgs daily) and POI until week 10.

- The Prometrium (400mg) and aspirin (2)  until week 12.

- Started calcium supplements (500mgs a day)

Welcome BengalMom!!

Aimeehug I dont think you have anything to worry about! They had me on a higher dose of estrace than you so maybe they just wanted to lower mine a bit. haha now Im stressed that the clinic is weaning me off my meds too early lol! I guess I just have to trust that they know what they are doing! They had me lowering my estrace at 8 weeks from 2pills 2x/day (8mg/day) to 1pill 2x/day (4mg/day) to stopping the estrace completely at 9 weeks and continuing with progesterone (1ml of PIO every 3rd day and 2 progesterone suppositories daily) until 10 weeks. They said I could start weaning off at 10 weeks and be done by 12 weeks if it made me feel better. Ill stop the PIO at 10 weeks then going down to one suppository/day then stopping altogether at 12weeks. They also have me on daily baby aspirin until 33 weeks.

It can be hard to trust the doctors when there are so many protocols out there. And its be different if I knew you were on a different protocol because of your diagnosis, but its more different clinics have different protocols, so how do you know who to trust? Oh well, were pregnant now, and our clinics have had success before so Im sure its all good regardless

I have a midwife and was planning a hospital birth, but we checked out the birthing center yesterday and it was kind of appealing. We have a health spending account we can use for the cost and my hubbys insurance does cover ambulance rides if needed (hopefully wouldnt be). Its really exciting to start thinking about these things. I had a dream last night I gave birth in the center and had a water birth.
I also meet my midwife for the first time today!
