My goodness - you ladies have been busy on here!!!
Yaena - congrats on a baby girl!!! I totally agree with Elation that girls should have a sister I only had a brother and am thrilled that my two girls (5 years apart) have each other. Every day is a joy watching them play together.
Elation - I'm so sorry that you're still suffering with OHSS. Waiting for the next scan can be brutal, but I've honestly found that all of my pregnancies have been a game of next steps - get to 12 weeks, then worry about 20 week anatomy scan - get past that, then worry until week 23 when a baby could survive if born early - get past then, then fret until 27 weeks when a baby is likely to survive if born early. I honestly don't think I relax until about 30 weeks! And just wait until the baby is born! Lol - keep the updates coming! Hope you start to feel better soon
Canadamommy - awesome that your results are all showing low risk - such a relief!
Synchro - I am so jealous of your last scan. My lady wouldn't show me the screen (at 12 weeks). I even asked her if the baby was moving around and she said ( I quote) "relax, I told you everything is fine". I don't think that she understood that I actually just wanted to see the baby move (glad everything was ok though). I got lousy stills that are basically distorted and all black Can't say that I'm thrilled with ultrasound at MFC (skill wise yes, sharing wise no).
Msc - as someone already mentioned, it is illegal to gender select in Canada as well. The only exception is if there is an anomoly/disease/condition that is carried on either the male or female gene (eg. Tay Sachs). I still have my suspicions that the REs here know what each embryo is, they simply don't tell us. I asked my RE point blank and he said 'no'. But, when we were discussing this transfer, he looked at my embryo 'info' and said 'let's see if we can get you a boy'! Hmmm. Ultimately it is the embryologist who choses which embryo to transfer (starting with the best) - the RE has little say. For your research though, my first daughter was a fresh transfer and my second daughter was a FET. So girls both ways for us!
We're currently 13w5d. I had an ultrasound at 12 weeks and my tech didn't tell me anything. I had my follow up at 13 weeks with an RE covering for mine as he's on vacation and it was less than exciting. All I did was dictate medical history and then got to go for a PAP! For both of my girls I at least had a doppler at 12 weeks, but she said no, that it wasn't worth it. I finally asked if everything looked good and she said 'oh yeah, everything looks great'....so that was my anti-climactic visit.
We told both our girls that they have a sibling on the way (I'm almost positive another girl) and my 6 year old is thrilled. She screamed and yelled and ran around which got the almost 2 year old going - it was awesome. DH is freaking out. The next 2 years will be interesting - eek.
