Re: 2nd Trimester Check-In w/o Oct 22

  • My OB basically said level 2 is the same as an anatomy scan but it is reviewed by a MFM.  Not sure how accurate that is but seems like it could be.

  • Sounds about right. I'm going to MFM for my AS in lieu of my regular OB due to being considered high risk.

    @uterusdreams and @halips lurking in second trimester and saw that you both went to FCI- my main office was Highland Park but did my monitoring in Lindenhurst- Dr Rodgers was my main RE but I  Dr Sipe did my first egg retrieval. 



  • @bpietronicco- we have quite the FCI crowd! I also went to dr rodgers in HP and monitored in Lindenhurst! I just loved dr rodgers and her team so much! I recently shared our journey video with them and she shared it on her blog and personal Facebook page even. 

    @kristimh80- i like the look of the pillow! I think I’m gonna have to try something soon. I’m not even 24 weeks yet by the nights are starting to get uncomfortable fast!

  • @bpietronicco and @halips yay FCI! I really liked everyone there, Dr. Sipe was my main doctor. I did all of my monitoring out of Hinsdale and everyone there was really nice and helpful.
