Hello Ladies; 

Got a reply back from Olive for some questions I had. From the email; it looks like all fees charged are the same amount as Genesis. They seem to be still in the discussion phase on a lot of issues. They said at this time they are still discussing if they will use Kelowna as a satellite clinic. I hope they will. This will be a big deciding factor for us as we live in the Kootenays. They didn't answer my questions on how much it would cost to transfer our frozen embryos to Olive from Genesis. I assume that is still in discussion too. 

Good luck to all the ladies going to Olive. I look forward to seeing their updated website when completed and see their stats once they get going.

Hey girls, I am a former Genesis patient moving to Olive as well.  I have decided to stick with Dr. Hitkari as I really like him and makes me feel comfortable and supported.  I have a phone orientation with him next week and praying that we can start IVF right away, I hate waiting!  lol.  I was reading on there Facebook page that the fees are the same as Genesis which I didn't for see any thing different.  And apparently they are ready for IVF in June which I hope is true and not longer.  Thanks for the chat ladies!

Hey ladies - hope everyone is well and enjoying the sunshine!!

 

I just had my WTF appointment at Olive with Dr Y.  I always feels so much better after talking with him - he keeps me thinking positive!  It sounds like so many great things will be happening with the new clinic.  For example each Dr will have their team of nurses and those are the ones we will deal with each time and he said they are trying to paperless and everything (our dosage information, etc) will be on a 'portal' we can check on the computer.

 

Also the fees are the same as Genesis and if you need to bring anything over (we will be packing up our sperm) there is a $500 fee from Genesis and Olive will deduct that from the procedure fee.  As Dr Y said, they don't want to the patients to pay because the drs left.  I am excited for things to start!

 

They will be moving to their new office on June 15th and be ready for IVF June 22nd so I will not be doing it until August.  I have to have another hysteroscopy on CD1 to make sure nothing is left over from my chemical pregnancy and then I can call in on my next cycle day 1 after that.  However my cycles are always wonky so I have no way of forseeing when it will happen!! But to be fair to my husband I will not cycle during our 2 weeks holiday in August.  Every year (minus the one after I just had Jack) I have cycled during holidays.  One year I actually took ferry rides back and forth from Galiano Island to get bloodwork done - and we had to do my injections on the beach, in the campsite, on the side of the road, in the truck....blink.png   I will be patient(ish) this time and not think about myself!  I know DH wants another baby too but I know he also needs a real vacation!

 

On that note - time to each pancakes and get a pedicure!

Thanks for sharing the update on the new clinic breezy! I hope time goes by quickly for you :)

I've been trying to do a natural IUI this cycle but am a bit unsure if I've missed my surge or not so we'll see what happens over the next couple of days. Then my orientation is on Friday so I guess I'll get all my details! Hopefully it will work out for me to still transfer in July but I think it will depend on the protocol as I'm assuming I won't be able to start suppression before the new clinic is up and running (my day 1 in june will likely be a few days before they move). We shall see! Can't believe it is finally almost go time!

Thanks for the update! Dr Y said IVF June 22nd?? On their fb page it says their lab won't be open until July 20th so people can start cycling in July. I've been so upset with the idea of waiting an extra month as my cd1 will be around June 24th. Yes one month in the grand scheme of things is not a big deal but it sure feels that way.

I had my orientation yesterday. Looks like I'll be starting BCP in July with transfer happening in August. My July cycle is about a week too early for me to start BCP in June so that sucks! From what I understand, they won't have anyone starting injections until the lab is ready to go which is July 12 from what I was told. I'm just trying to remember that we want that lab to be 100% ready to go before our embies are there! (but I'm so so so anxious to start too)

I'm also in the 2WW from my first IUI (natural) so I'm having the usual crazies with that! It didn't really go well in that DH's sample was horrible but it is hard to not get my hopes up anyway.

Fx that everyone's cycles cooperate :)

I just got my hysteroscopy booked for Fridy and then a refresher orientation on June 12th. I am excited to get the ball rolling but I wish I knew what my cycle will look like so I have a better idea of when I will start bcps!

My DS is officially on the waitlist for eye muscle surgery. One more thing on my full plate!

Well IUI #1 is officially a bust.  But at least the prometrium extended my cycle enough that a June BCP start might be a possibility!  Hopefully it doesn't mess with my next cycle and I can transfer in July!

I'm so so sorry tonks, but maybe that is a bright side about the transfer in July! (Though it seriously seems to be taking forever to get there). My orientation is coming up in a few weeks. I don't even know about BCPs in the month before, lots to learn..... but I'm hoping if it works out the way I have it in my head I'll be able to do the transfer at the end of July.....

Just thought I'd check in and see how everyone is doing!  Get close to the clinic opening now!

 

izzie - thank you for your comments.  Of course now I may need to push the IVF a month for my own timing but we're still figuring out the best plan of action as far as that is concerned.  So frustrating!

Hey!

When I spoke to Olive today they said the clinic was moving in July, is this correct?
Things sound a bit delayed on their end ??
My IPs have a consult in Late august....
How long from consult to transfer did it take with this team of doctors? Dr Taylor particularly.

Thanks!! .

Was just at Olive on the 12th for an orientation - I can call in Day 1 and start BCP at the end of this month.  They said they will be in the new clinic by then!

 

It was a little unorganized and there was some miscommunication - I felt a little unsure about starting right away (and the nurse was encouraging me to wait).  I am still not sure when I will start - so many things to consider.  I know things will be running smooth once they have moved so I still have faith in them and won't let this last appointment worry me!

I think it was mostly a lot of me having to say "Dr. Y said..." to the nurses and them having to go back to verify.  Because I am getting so close to cycling I am already feeling a little rushed and unorganized myself!  I might be calling in CD1 around the same time as you, Dawn. I am still waiting for a sign to tell me whether or not I should start now or wait....I can't seem to make the official decision!!

That's a tough call Breezy.  I was going to wait but have decided that im tired of waiting and just want to get this ball rolling!  I actually think being in the top few "firsts" is a good thing.  CD1 for me is roughly June 30, so that being the case early August is the estimated egg retrieval.  They say the lab opens July 21st, so I think its enough time to iron out the kinks..:)  Good luck in whatever you decide!

Hi all!

 

So excited to see that Olive has opened its new doors!  I'm so very much done with waiting!! Its time to get this show on the road.  I expect to be starting BCP in about 2 weeks.  I have a feeling July is going to be looooong.  Hopefully I can find lots to do to keep myself busy!

 

Looks like there are a few of us getting going soon! Is everyone doing a fresh cycle?  BCP to start?  Will be nice to have people going through it at the same time!


Me: 34 DH: 41 TTC since Dec 2010 
Nov 2011: MFI diagnosis (borderline low count, low motility and morphology); advised IVF w/ ICSI after weight loss
Apr - Aug 2012: try acupuncture (me), supplements and vitamin shots (DH); no changes
Sept 2012: start losing weight
Jan 2013: new clinic - ready to start talking about treatments
Feb 2013: high FSH (10), low AMH (0.67); still need to lose more weight
Feb 2013: increase CoQ10
Apr 2013: start acupuncture and DHEA; hysteroscopy is clear
May 2013: natural IUI BFN 

IVF # 1 - Jul/Aug 2013
Jul 12 - start BCP
Jul 25 - start Synarel
Aug 8 - start stims - 150 Menopur am and 225 Bravelle pm

So I called in Day 1 on wednesday.....and then cancelled!  It was really hard to make the decision...and once I decided to go ahead with it I knew it wasn't right.  It feels weird....since my life has revolved around IVF for 4 years.  I have only ever taken breaks between cycles (only the minimum) - even doing a FET as soon as I could after having my son.  I will take this time to enjoy myself...have a girls night out finally!!  Wishing all who are cycling and about to start the best of luck!!
