Re: POLL! Is your clinic. . .

  • Yes. It's a single RE practice. IVF cycle run every month with retrievals the end of the second week of the month. That means that no month has IVF disruptions, but ladies doing IUIs might run into an issue this time of year.
    Married 08.06
    Started TTC 05.08
    Me: Stage II endo, borderline high FSH
    DH: perfect
    1 lap, 5 IUIs = 4 BFNs and 1 c/p
    2 IVFs, 2 FETs = 1 BFN, 1 c/p, 1 ectopic and finally a sticky BFP in May 2011!

    07.22.11 Delivered the most amazing baby boys at 34w2d

    After delivery I ended up having a pulmonary embolism, then was diagnosed with Factor V Leiden and postpartum cardiomyopathy. I was strongly advised never to get pregnant again, as it would most likely be fatal.

    The boys spent 24 hours in the NICU and 18 days in the Special Care Nursery.

    They have been thriving ever since!

  • Yes, mine will be closed on Christmas Eve which is why they moved my beta up by 1 day (12/21) in case I need a 2nd beta (12/23).  They thought it would be too cruel to have to wait ALL holiday weekend.

    This...at least, I'd hope so, considering we go to the same clinic :)
