Hi Gang,

 

We're back to being in limbo...our clinic went to the College to seek guidance as to their ability to offer platelet rich plasma and intralipids...the College has advised them they may not do so...as such...the only clinic that I'm aware of offering an immune protocol in Canada is Markham.

 

I think we're going to proceed with the 3rd party cycle and create embryos and then likely consult with Markham as we can always ship the embryos to Markham depending on what they think when they review our cycle.  I may likely start the ball rolling with a referral to Markham in the interim to arrange a consult prior to transferring.

 

I'm very torn.  IVF.  No easy choices.

It was long, awful & hard. We got very lucky and didn't run out of both emotional and financial resources. We saw some of the most beautiful of people in our lowest moments. Baby Girl arrived Apr 10/2018

CHG - I think getting a referral to Markham now is a good place to start.  Wow, I didn't know that Markham is the only place doing immune treatments now.  are you going ahead with the cycle?

 

Hello to EOE!  it's been too quiet around here.  How's everyone doing?

 

AFM - 38 weeks tomorrow.  In the home stretch now!

Congrats CrisBelieve.

 

Hi All,

 

  I have a question, should we bed rest after embryo transfer?  I got mixed information.  Some article said no and back to normal right away.  Some suggests to have 48 - 72 hours bed rest.  Any suggestions? also, anything NOT to do after embryo transfer?  I am waiting for my ERA testing and will do transfer this month.....finger crossed.

 

Thanks

Anyfung - I took it easy on day of transfer. I laid on couch watching tv most of the day, got up to eat, bathe etc. I resumed regular activities the next day but I tried to avoid heavier lifting for a few days. And I didn't work out at all during the 2ww.

Keep us posted on your ERA results.

Hi, I am back.
Had my first cycle with MFC and first IVF cycle. I'm with Dr. Wais and I didn't see her once, she never even did my egg retrieval. Never been at a clinic where you don't actually talk to the doctor you are seeing. I felt like they didn't personalize my care just followed standard protocol. I ended up with no normal embryos which isn't their fault I guess but I think if the protocol was different maybe the outcome would have been different. Not sure if I should move back to my old clinic now, only reason I moved was to get a funded IVF cycle sooner.

Hi ladies hows everyone doing? Cristine wow 38 weeks thats awesome. Good luck soon you will meet your little baby boy. I wish everyone else the best of luck. Sorry i have not been active because i had forgot the password and took forever to reset it. Anyway so much going on and glad this thread is getting more and more active.

I have a question for anyone that might have gone through something similar. A little background story. We are not trying to have a baby now however i have been feeling pregnant for the past couple weeks. Crams nausea sensitivity to perfumes and so many other symptoms in other words symptoms that i feel when im at least 6-7 weeks pregnant. So i did two hpt both negative. Made an appointment with the doctor and she did a urine test there which came back positive. Then she sent me for blood work and that was negative. Did two more hpt this morning negative. Im so confused. I know these are pregnancy symptoms. How come the doctors test was positive and everything else negative??

Thanks CrisBelieve.

 

I just got an email about my ERA test result, it said it's receptive.  However, they are planning to transfer on 7th day of progesterone instead of 6th day like last time.  I am not sure if it will make a difference.  I am just curious how come it didn't work if I am in the receptive window and my embryo got tested. 

 

To all ladies, any tips for after embryo transfer? I know CrisBelieve said do nothing on the first day ..=) and no heavy lifting for a few days....does laptop consider a heavy lifting? sounds dumb..but I have to bring my laptop home if I plan to work from home.

 

CrisBelieve....wish you smooth delivery on your baby boy!!

Cristine - awww, congrats!!!  I can't believe your little guy is almost here!  My how the time has flown.  Hoping you have an easy and wonderful delivery.  Will you be at MFC?  Come back and update us when you get a chance!

 

vmt - I'm sorry that your cycle didn't go as hoped.  My experience is that Dr. V and Dr. Garcia are amazing.  The other REs are newer and while I'm sure they're very good, I'd definitely recommend the two I mentioned above.  Of course, for some people it does take a couple of rounds (unfortunately) to figure out what does/does not work.

 

Kate - very odd.  Hoping that this figure this out for you.  Fingers crossed that it is in fact a viable pregnancy.  Keep us updated :)

 

Anyfung - I don't think it really matters what you do the day of/following transfer.  I always take it easy for the first 24hrs, but that's about it.  I tried not to lift my kids for about a week, but that's easier said that done.  I had a 2 year old jumping on my stomach, bags to pack, stair to climb - I just lived life.  The only 'different' thing that I did (this time, as well as when I got pregnant with my others) was that I didn't eat/drink anything colder than room temperature.  Something I read about maintaining a nice warm environment.  Good luck with your transfer!

 

CHG - sorry your journey continues to be full of bumps.  I'd 100% recommend talking to Dr. V.  He's the champion of immunological interventions and I'm sure he'd be very interested to see what you've tried, what's worked etc.  He's on top of the latest developments and always seems to have a new cutting edge tweak.  Good luck and keep us updated :)

 

AFM - 19 weeks today.  I honestly can't believe that I'm pregnant, and that it's almost half over.  I have my 21 week anatomy scan in two weeks - just hoping that whomever is in there is healthy and happy.

I would love to find out what we're having.  My gut feeling is that it's another girl...which I would be thrilled with.  Of course I would be equally thrilled if it was a boy!  A week and a half to go!  I'll let you know wink.png

Whatever it is is a blessing regardless. I love girls personally especially if you already have a girl because the two sisters will have each other but boys are just as adorable. Im kind of loosing my mind over my baby boy. So cute and cuddly...

Cant wait for you 😊

Hi Everyone!

 

I am new here. I am currently with York Fertility Centre next door to MFC, however I have a complete septum so I have been referred to Dr. Virro to do the hysteroscopy to remove it. It is supposed to happen mid-June (though that may change thanks to COVID)
Has anyone had a hysteroscopy with Dr. Virro? I am pretty nervous...I've never had anesthesia before, and I am also a bit worried about the cytotec (misoprostal) that I would have to take the night before the surgery. Dr. V said that it causes cramping, and in some cases causes severe cramping (Occasionally I get insane cramps and pain on CD1, so I am worried about getting those types of cramps with this). 

I would love to hear some experiences! 


TTC#1 for 1 year

Mild lean PCOS, complete septate uterus, MFI (low count, low morph) Varicocele veins

 

Dec 2019- Complete septate uterus confirmed after SHG and MRI, DH has confirmed varicocele veins after ultrasound

Feb 2020- DH has varicocele embolization

June 2020 (?)- Hysteroscopy to remove septum

Welcome Pixie,

Dr.V removed my septum in Dec 2017. I had zero discomfort or anything with the misoprostol to the point that when I checked into the hospital the next morning I asked to be checked to see if I dilated enough for the surgery because I didn't feel anything.
No one seemed concerned and they proceeded to prep me for the surgery. They started the lines for anesthesia and Dr. V said he would check. The next thing I knew I was in the recovery room. It was all done.
I was extremely tired after due to the anesthesia and slept the majority or the rest of that day and slept really well that night and was fine after that. Nothing significant that I can remember.
One year after my surgery in January 2019 my 1st son was born. And I am due with my 2nd son in the next few weeks.

I have had no issues with my pregnancies in either pregnancy even though there is a risk of preterm birth after the surgery.

If you have other questions let me know.

Thank you so so much for your reply! I am definitely feeling more at ease about the misoprostol now, and the whole procedure itself. Still a little nervous about the anesthesia...I think its because I have no control over 'going to sleep' like I do when I go to bed at night (but I have general anxiety so I think that is where that comes from haha) Do you know if he will deal with any other issues while he is in there if something is discovered during the surgery? 

Also, I know everyone is different, but do you know how long it was after the surgery until you woke up?

 

It is so nice to hear that yours was a success!! And congratulations on both of your pregnancies :)

Hi Desrok - welcome!

 

I was in to see Dr. Virro last week and had a long chat with Helen - they've decided to begin cycles with current patients/patients who were cancelled because of Covid - apparently they were never told to stop, but decided that it was best due to the unfolding/ever-changing advise that was coming out.  So you're one of the lucky ones!

 

Hopefully someone from Markham will jump on here soon - if not, you can join the cycle buddy thread which has ladies from all across the country at the same point in the process as you!

Thanks for the information elephantshoes!

My FET was cancelled due to Covid back in March. After that, they contacted me in May to restart the process to finally telling me 2 days after that they couldnt proceed because of Health Canada New regulations on third party cycle (we have embryos from egg donor). They told me it was on hold and sent a letter to Health Canada on May 4th to ask them if they could restart third party cycle. I understand new regulations for new patients and choosing a donor but not for existing patient that have completed the process and have frozen embryos. I still havent heard back since and trying to get feedback without any answer. I got my son with my first FET and hopefully will be as lucky for the second one but I am 45 years old so time is a challenge now.

Hi All,

 

   I just came back from MFC for my appointment with Dr. Garcia today.  MFC was opened after the pandemic but only doing parental appointments and only if the egg retrieval cycle was completed before they declared pandemic.  

 

   I am the lucky one that I had my embryo transferred the Friday before pandemic However, when I went there 2 weeks later for blood test, they told me Blood work there would be closed and all blood work would be done at LifeLab.  All doctors are rotating to be in the office, meaning only one doctor in the office at a time.  However, doctors who are not scheduled to be in the office are working from home and doing call for patients everyday.

 

   Ultrasound still open but by appointments only and usually just having 2 people in the waiting area.  Spouse and kids are not allowed to go to clinic.  

 

    All patients who go to the clinic need to do pre-screening.  Filling out a form and they take your temperature and we have to wear mask.  I believe they are gradually resuming (I read their website a few weeks ago).  Hope it helps.

 

    I have a question...appreciated if you have any suggestions/recommendations.  I am now 17 weeks pregnant and still having nausea.  I was throwing up everyday from week 7.5 till 16 weeks.  Now, it's improving but still having nausea.  Is it normal?  Any recommended remedies for that? 

 

Thanks all!!

Hi ladies!  It's been so long!

 

elephant - How are you doing?  Did you find out of you are having another girl??  

 

Kate - How are you my friend?

 

Balance - Good luck!  I see you are due with your second boy today!  Update when you can.

 

Pixie - Welcome to Markham...you are in good hands here.  Try not to worry about the surgery.  You will "fall asleep" within seconds and then wake up in recovery.  Dr V will come see you in recovery to let you know how everything went.  Good luck!

 

Desrok - Sorry to hear your FET was not able to proceed.  Did you get the green light now?

 

anyfung - Congrats on your pregnancy!  Are you taking the Diclectin for the nausea?  This was the only thing that helped me in both my pregnancies.  With my twin pregnancy, the nausea was really bad until about 24-25 weeks.  This time it finally went away around 16 weeks.  I hope it passes soon for you!

 

AFM - We welcomed our baby boy on March 9th weighing in at 7lbs 14oz!!  Dr V delivered him via c-section.  I was home 48 hours later!  DS is doing great...he is a happy baby.  Can't believe he's already 3 months old!  The girls love him and can't go anywhere without their "baby brother" which is what they call him.  So cute.  It's been tough being stuck at home during all this Covid craziness and not being able to have family help out but we made it taking care of a newborn and 2 toddlers.  How is everyone doing?  Crazy times!  I had my postpartum appt with Dr V but it on the phone.  Sucks because I wanted to give him a gift in person.  WilI need to go back and see him sometime this summer for a Pap so will give it to him then.  

 

Sorry if I missed anyone!  xoxo

Congrats Cris!!! A little boy! So excited for you! Glad things are going well even with all the pandemic curveballs. Your girls sound like proud big sisters.

I am still pregnant. 40w1d today. I went in for induction last Wednesday and didn't make much progress after 3 days in the hospital so we went home. Back in the hospital this morning to try induction again. Fingers crossed our little boy comes soon! We are anxious to meet him and to bring him home to meet his brother.

Pixie - please try not to worry about the anesthesia. I felt relaxed and very good after waking up all beit very tired but it was a nice a restful feeling. Just leave yourself time to sleep after you get home for that day and maybe the next. Then if I remember correctly I felt back to normal within 2 days. I can't remember how long it took to wake up because for me it felt like no time had passed and I didn't even realize all was done. It wasn't a long time though I think I woke up quickly after getting back into the recovery room and Dr. V came to see me before I went home. I may have stayed in recovery an hour if I remember correctly before they let me leave.

Congrats Cris!

 

Dr. Garcia prescribed me Diclectin yesterday, and will pick up medication soon.   I was taking Groval as that's what they recommended if it's not too bad.  However, I found that I am having nausea everyday after 5 p.m. and Dr. Garcia just prescribed me the medication.

 

My next question is.....Is there any parental class, especially these days? Any helps from hospital or clinic after giving birth in case I don't know how to breastfeed or taking care of the baby? (This is our first baby!)

 

Pixie - don't worry about the anesthesia.  I had polyp removal late August last year.  It was only 30 min. that they put me in "sleep", then I was in the recovery room.  I think the nurse woke me up and a few minutes later, Dr. Garcia came to check out.  I stayed there for an hour or so and I don't really need my husband to come and get me.  Nurse wheeled me to the front entrance and my husband picked me up there.

 

Thanks...
