Spain- Instituto Bernabaeu part 7
« Reply #240 on: 4/05/19, 12:37 »
Hi All

Quick message from me. I had a scan on Tue and saw a heartbeat. Baby grew as well so for now we keep on checking things every week. My next scan is on Tue after Bank Holidays.

I dread these so much, they are so scary.

Tpeale - thank you for congratulations. I have followed your story on here and found it inspirational! After my own miscarriage due to chromosomal abnormalities last year - I also decided to always go for PGS tested embies. Good luck for the sibling!

 Have a lovely break everyone!

    Hi all,

    I don't have the time to write often, but I am always checking to see how everyone is doing.

    Maraki, I am really sorry it wasn't a BFP this time. I am glad to hear that you can try again soon and that you are determined to do so. It seems like a learning experience and I don't have much experience as never done any cycle in my life, but I think you are right on questioning every step now, just to make sure you have the best possible chance next time.

    Cma700 & Tajga101; so great to hear that everything is going well, I am new on this thread but  I admire you two for sticking around after your BFP and offering support to everyone.

    Bailey, how is the immune investigation going? What have you decided in the end?

    Onesock, how are you? I hope everything went well on Thursday. ^pray^

    I am trying not to get too anxious about my app on the 28th of June and I am happy that hubby will be able to come with me. I have an important exam in a month time and I am trying to focus on studying for it, but sometimes I have to rely on caffeine to have the energy to study after work. I was never a huge coffee drinker and I don't drink caffeine type of soft drinks, I was never a fan of those not even I was younger.
    So even though I don't drink coffee every day, and when I do is never more than one a day, I am worried and I think I should cut down and not drink any at all. What do you think ladies? Have you stopped with caffeine completely?

    Sending a virtual hug and best wishes to everyone.

    @ Mac78 I have already been investigated for my immunes but Spain don't want me to undergo the immune protocol that the immune specialist has recommended as it is too harsh a treatment. I agree with them and am questioning the immune protocol myself. So during the summer we will get a second opinion from another immune specialist here in London and see what treatment plan he recommends and then make a decision about what we will do for the transfer in September or October. Best of luck with your appointment on the 28th of June. Do you travel to Spain for it or are you doing a Skype call? Have you decided to go to Madrid or Alicante? Also good luck with your exam. I know how hard it is to study when you are constantly distracted by thoughts of iVF treatments. Regards to the coffee I only ever went on to the decaff when I was transferring an embryo. I don't drink that much coffee but do enjoy the odd cup. I don't think you need to worry about the coffee until you have a transfer.
    @ Tajga101 Delighted to hear that you saw the heartbeat and that the baby has grown. Best of luck with your scan on Tuesday but I think it is looking all positive so far. Keep us posted.
    @ CMA700 Very happy to hear that the 20 week scan went well. You have hit the half way mark well done. Keep us updated on how you get on because it's lovely to hear the positive stories as it gives me a lot of hope.
    @ Maraki Thank you for your response and sharing your story. I thought that they liked your endometrial lining to be above 7mm before the transfer. What was your measurement on the day of transfer last time? The medication does need to be taken around the same time each day so that the levels in your system remain the same. If you are able to lie down after taking the progesterone then not as much will leak out but i was told that this was not necessary as your body will absorb it and the excess is what comes out. Did you have your progesterone levels checked on the day of transfer last time? Because on one of my transfers with IB that resulted in a BFN my levels pre-transfer were low and then they very quickly gave me an injection of progesterone and then i  was put on the progesterone injections alongside the pessary. I always ask to have my levels checked before transfer now because when we got the BFN and had our follow up consultation the doctor said that the low progesterone could have been a factor in the lack of implantation of the embryo. Have you had your progesterone levels checked prior to transfer? Keeping everything crossed for you this time will be yours to get BFP.
    @ Tpeale1 Great to hear that all is well with you and Henry. Please God you can work out the finances to go for a sibling for him.
    @ Onesock How are you keeping? Has baby made her appearance yet. I hope you are all cuddled up to her and she had an uneventful arrival into the world. Sending you hugs.

    Baby dust to all. XXX

    ME AGAIN!
    I've decided to make an appointment with my GP to get referred to an NHS recurrent miscarriage clinic. I know that they won't do immunes testing and probably a lot of the other tests i already had them done but they may prescribe the steroids, clexane and progesterone which would save a bit of money on the medication. Also, they tend to monitor you with any subsequent pregnancy and will do a scan at 6 weeks and every 2 weeks until 12 weeks for reassurance. I will still go to the second opinion for the immunes later in the summer. Appointment booked with the GP for the 15th of May. XXX

    Hi ladies,

    Itís been a while since I posted and there is so much news on this board ! Many congratulations to the pregnant ladies ! Bayley, itís good to read that you are not loosing hope and I pray that your next try will be successful xx

    Itís 2 AM in Canada and I am up from feeding my little Liya who is 15 weeks and doing fantastic, I feel blessed :)

    I wanted to address a few subjects I saw here on the board. I too hesitated between travelling to IB Madrid and IB Alicante and did Skype interviews with both clinics. In the end I chose Alicante because the newer clinic in Madrid did not have the EmbryoScope yet, and I thought any little bit of technology would play in our favour, you can read about the EmbryoScope here :
    https://blog.scrcivf.com/new-ivf-technology-what-is-the-embryoscope
    In the end though, we only ended having one good embryo, so I am wondering if the EmbryoScope helped at all, itís still worth discussing with your doctor I think.

    Also, at the time of our egg donation, I was really adamant about having a donor that looked like me. I am biracial and fairly tan, my partner is also from North African and fairly tan and I was concerned about having a baby whose colouring fit in our family. Well my Liya is faired skin, blond-ish and so far her eyes are turning to a pale blue and I could not care less about her colouring and I love her like crazy ! When someone asks me about it I just throw up my hands in the air and say something vague about the mysteries of genetics and people seem content with that answer ! I am definitely in the telling camp and my daughter will know her story but I do not feel obliged to tell every other person the details of our conceiving. Liya is 100 percent my daughter and I will make sure she knows how much she is loved and how much she was desired and how hard we fought to have her. She is our daughter and we were just blessed to have had a kind lady to help out with her starting cells, that is all it is. I already bought her a lovely childrenís book called The pea that was me that explains egg donation to children in very sweet terms.

    I hope all this info can be helpful to any of you, baby dust and hugs to all xxx
