Hi Suz,

 

I am plodding along at 37 weeks anticipating babies arrival. My journey with ivf is near its end and I am thankful to Heartland for facilitating these miracles. I want HL to have success with each and every patient they have and am cheering for that.

 life is going to be so crazy having 4 kids under 4 years old and being over 40!! But what a blessing. My DH and I may run screaming and shouting from each other some day as it's non stop hard work!

 

Again hoping your next cycle brings your second miracle! I will probably be lost in crazy land once the baby is here but love to check back to see how everyone is progressing!

Congrats jojo!  Sounds like there's going to be a lot of joy in your house!


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

Hey everyone how are you all? I haven't really been on this chat since I moved to vfc from HL. Although I had to go to HL for my endo scratch and just went for my baseline ultrasound and bloodwork. HL making money off me! I had to pay $250 for an ultrasound and bloodwork. Crazy! I had this new doctor. He is Chinese and all I know is DR K? Has anyone else seen him? I am just looking for feedback as my friend is currently going through a fresh cycle at HL and has had him all week. Some things are questionable and I really hope she has embryos to retrieve. They stimmed her until her follicles are 21-26. And a few 18. Isn't that too big? That was today and retrieval is Monday.

Congrats to all the positives and hope everyone is well.

Hi Cdnbabe. I have a friend that has been seeing the new doc and she seems to like him.
As for follicles I'm pretty sure that is ok. They like them to at least be 18 and anything bigger is fine I think.... Good luck to your friend!

It's my understanding that typically a clinic will trigger between 18-20. Did she have a couple of big ones and they were just trying to let the little ones catch up?

How many below 18? If she triggered at 18, 21, 24 & 26 I wouldn't be overly concerned...if she had several sort of between 14-17...I could totally see letting the 24 & 26 go to pick up the greater mass under 18? The 18 & 21 should still be decent...24 & 26 will probably be over cooked. ;)

Glad to see some people still on here and having success at Heartland! My little guy turns 1 in December and we are going back for a FET hopefully in January. We have 3 frosties to use. I have to finish breastfeeding first, which I'm in the process of doing right now. I'm excited and nervous at the same time. We were very lucky to get pregnant the very first try with IVF, and can only hope it will be that easy the second time around, but I'm realistic in knowing that may not be the case. Good luck to everyone!
