I will be there on May 14 for my baseline visit. The staff clinic are awesome. The only thing I wish they had was a support group. I found out about this website at the end of my first cycle. I think that this cycle will be easier with the support of this forum

Can you give me any info on what they do with your first visit, the consultation?

I am a basket case....ha ha trying to gather lots of info any way I can.

 

I know the closest support group for me is Fredericton, but we live in St. Martins just outside of Saint John....we have a lot of travel ahaead.

Ha ha! On my first visit (consultation) they explained all the ivf process in detail. They gave us info sheets. They answered all our questions about the process. They gave us info on price and next steps. Then it's up to the couple if they want to continue the process or not (no pressure from them). I'm from Bathurst but I'm lucky, my mother in law lives in Moncton so I stay there overnight sometimes :)

Thats great & lucky for you! We are from St. Martins, just outside of Saint John....I have a aunt & uncle in Salsbury so we've already asked them if we could stay with them when we begin the process of IVF.

I am so excited and nervous for the consultation that its all I can think about. Who am I kidding, this is all I've been thinking about for the last 3 years.....ha ha

cdgal1981 - where are you from? I was referred to the clinic at the end of July 2013 if I remember correctly and we had our initial app't early September 2013. I remember that about a month after the referral I had call them just to make sure they received the referral. ;)

Hi CDgal1981, I also called the clinic. I called them everyday for three weeks! ha ha They were on the look out for my referal and honestly we got the call three weeks after it was sent because my doctor was late faxing it.....but I also kept calling her office to see when it was going to be sent. I felt we got in really quickly given the length of time we've waited for other appointments.

 

I will post and let you know how we make out on Wednesday. Thanks


Tammy

Thank you all for thinking of me:)

 

Our first visit / consultation was great. They are all very nice and Dr. Robichaud was so reassuring to my husband & I. So when we left all I had to do was phone our nurse Sylie and let her know when was the first day of my cycle....(I was due to start anyday)

So I decided to take a pregnancy test on Thursday because it still hadn't arrived, which I figured was all due to my stress and excitement of the appointment. When I took the HTP,th_abfp.gif  2 pink lines appreared!!!!!!!!!!! My husband & I are still in complete shock!

We are trying to stay calm as we have had previously 1 miscarriage & 1 ectopic, but we are praying this is it.

 

Just so thankful we have the clinic to go to if this doesn't work out, but please, please keep us in your prayers & I will continue to do the same for you all!!! xo

Isn't it great how you can be genuinely happy for someone you've never met :-)

 

I'm glad to hear things are going well Tammy, fingers and toes crossed for your little bean.

 

Baby dust to you Marie Nathalie, hope you are feeling well after your retrieval.

 

Can't wait for updates from both of you.

How is everything?   I am anxious for updates.   My FET will be June 24.


Becky (35)  Unexpectedly widowed in Feb 2013.  The night after my ER.  I was married to an incredible man named Chris.

Son, age 6
TTC #2 (his first) since our wedding in July 2011.

Dec 1, 2011- Found out he has azoospermia (no sperm in SA.)  Totally heartbroken and shocked.
Jan 2012- First consult at fertility clinic.
March 2012- My tests show high LH but everything else was normal. His LH/FSH were high, testosterone was really low. (4.2)
May 17, 2012- Official Dx of testicular failure and non-obstructive azoo. Given the option of mTESE, TESA or using a donor.
June 7, 2012- Urologist is seeing us again per our request. We need him to answer some questions about the procedures and testosterone.  He would not consider Clomid or any hormones for DH.
June 27, 2012- Saw RE and decided to proceed with dIUI. Told we needed one cycle on the BCP because of my high LH.
June 28, 2012- Started BCP for 21 days. Did pre-IUI micro and blood testing on July 3rd. Told they should be in on time for IUI in early August.
July 21, 2012- CD1. Called clinic and found out my cycle was canceled. They messed up and my file wasn't ready. They forgot to draw vit D and some other results are missing.
August 9, 2012- Nurse left message saying they cannot do this cycle either. Now it will take 2-3 MONTHS for DH's blood tests before we can use donor sperm.
August 10, 2012- RE called. DH has a reactive Hepatitis C blood test and they are trying to figure out if he's got an active infection or was exposed in the past.
August 23, 2012- He's Hep C NEGATIVE! Phew!
October 2012- Latest SA results still shows azoo, but we're glad the testosterone looks normal now. dIUI after 21 days on the pill. Clomid for cd3-7, LH is too high (17 and 14.6) and progestone getting too high. Had 3, 13.5mm folliciles and my lining is 8.6. CD13- Lining was good, triple layer at about 9. Now I just have one 17.5mm follicle on my left side.
October 17, 2012- dIUI  canceled. Clomid didn't work, estrogen too low, LH was normal again and progesterone was off too. Now we need an appointment to talk to our RE again to start over.
Dec 2012- Saw RE and we have to do IVF/ICSI, even with a donor. So, we decided to throw in a TESA with donor backup. Bloodwork this cycle, BCP and mock in Jan and hopefully a Feb IVF/ICSI/TESA!
 
IVF #1
Mock done, teaching visit done.  Started Suprefact on Jan 30.  AF arrived on schedule.
Baseline done, starting Gonal-F and Luveris Feb 11.
Stim day 4-  1 follicle at 11mm, 40 more under 10.  My lining is already a triple lining and at 8.6
Stim day 6-  8-9 follices between 11-13mm at least 20 more under 10mm.  This doctor saw my lining at 6.3?   Encouraged to walk because my circulation to my uterus wasn't what they wanted to be this time.  No idea what that means.
Stim day 8-   14 follicles.  All measuring between 11 and 15 with more under 10.   Lining is over 10.  Circulation is good again.   They are letting me skip my day 9 appointment. 
Stim day 10-  TRIGGER tonight!   I have 14 between 15-21mm, a few more at 14 that may catch up.  Lining is over 10.   DH's TESA is tomorrow.
Feb 21-  No sperm found with TESA.   ER tomorrow with donor sperm.
Feb 22-  ER was successful!  Collected 18 eggs.   7 from my right and 8 on my left.  We can skip ICSI because the donor's sperm is great.  Crossing fingers for a good fert report tomorrow.
June 2013- Updating. My husband, Chris, passed away unexpectedly of Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome just hours after my ER on Feb 23.  Had 14 fertilize.  9, 5-day frozen blasts are at the clinic waiting for me to make some decisions. 

 

FET #1

June 2014-  5-day blast.   BFN just in time for what would have been our 3rd anniversary.  

 

FET#2

August 2014.  FET #2 on Aug 25 with another 5-day blast.  BFP!   Had scare with a bleed at 4w5d, but beta is still doubling.  Due May 13, 2015.  Ultrasound on Oct 5.

Oct 5-  8w4d-  Blighted Ovum.  Stopping estrogen and progesterone.  Waiting to miscarry.  Looking forward to moving on with life.

Oct 17- D&C.   Feeling peace about being at the end of the infertility battle.  Looking forward to the next chapter in my life.
