Best of luck to you zeukko! I've now done 3 cycles at UBC...2 fresh and1frozen. I got pregnant all 3 times but miscarried twins with the FET. Dr Rowe was my Dr. and he was great....as was everyone there. We have one remaining embryo which we may still try some time this summer/fall. Good luck to you!


FuzzyFur: I just wanted to let you know that Dr. Rowe has been my doctor throughout my cycle. Though Dr. Cheung is my physician, I've seen Dr. Rowe everyday except for the first day. He'll also be doing my Egg Retrieval while Dr. Allaire will be doing my transfer. :)

Thought I would jump onto this thread! Been working on and off with this clinic and Dr Rowe for the past 2 years. Really like Dr Rowe and the many nurses!

Hoping to start IVF cycle #2 (#1 got cancelled :() at the end of this month.

Zeukko - when are you planning your FET?

Sorry behopeful. Your post came right around the time of my IVF failure, so I kind of withdrew from all the IF boards at that time. Ugh.

I just started my meds for the FET and am looking at a transfer on May 29th. Hopefully my singleton survives the thaw.

Tina - FX for your SuperOV/IUI round!!!

Zuekko - thanks for the reply. So sorry to hear that the fresh IVF didn't take.
Hoping hoping hoping for a successful FET for you at the end of May!

AFM - I just did my ER this past Weds at UBC and managed to get 3 fertilized which all went back in on Day 3 this past Sat. Dr Williams did both the ER and the ET and she was really really good. Barely had any discomfort which was a blessing. Dr Rowe told us that he would be stalking our results to see how it all goes!

FX for the two of you! :)

I hope you had a great beta number yesterday. I had my FET this morning. DH and I were on pins and needles wondering if our little guy would survive the thaw, and thankfully he did. We only had one to work with. I was so happy to see that Dr. Rowe was the one doing the transfer. He took his time and was very encouraging. :) Love that guy!
