antenatal classes for twins - regular classes or ones for multiples?

thanks so much everyone!! Unfortunately, I didn't get my act together in time and can't do an earlier NCT class as the weekend classes were all full, and my DH doesn't get home in time to go to the evening ones, so 31/33 weeks it will have to be. TAMBA also now full and they run so infrequently so I've decided to go ahead with the NCT one, and attend a twins/multiples class at our hospital and hopefully that will cover it in terms of info and meeting a few people too. I'll also try out the local...

High HCG at 15 DPEC

hi hayley firstly congrats on your BFP!! and yes that beta result could well mean twins - mine was 450 at day 15 and I felt queasy already so I suspected twins. low and behold the 6 week scan confirmed 2 little peanuts who are now wriggling away in my tum at 26 weeks. I have everything crossed that you have a happy healthy pregnancy, be it one or two little ones in there xxx

antenatal classes for twins - regular classes or ones for multiples?

hello, I'm almost 26 weeks pregnant with nonID twins and have booked in for regular NCT antenatal classes. They are on 2 Saturdays in July, when I'll be 31 & 33 weeks respectively. I know I'm taking a risk by leaving it quite late but planning for success (i.e. to keep them cooking in my tum for as long as poss). I've just joined TAMBA and we're lucky enough to live in a town where they run antenatal classes for parents expecting multiples, but the next one is on the same day as our already book...

Pregnant and Nearer 40? Anyone?

Hi Peony, Congratulations on your BFP! I was 40 in November and am 7w+4 pregnant with twins, so due around the same time as you. It took a lot of trying and I can't quite believe it but we're v happy. Taking everything one day at a time though. Most of my close friends have had their babes aged 37+ and all are fine, glowing and haven't had too much wrinkle acceleration! And to a woman they're all thinner than before they had kids (got a feeling that I'll be the odd one out there though if I don'...

ARGC

thanks Mavis - am indeed delighted and they continue to do really well so we're aiming for blast transfer on Friday. Nail biting but very exciting too! Hope your little twinnies are doing well - they must be not so little anymore and keeping you VERY busy! hiya kt - looks like I'll be there on Friday for transfer if everything goes to plan in the embryology lab, but prob late morning or afternoon if they don't call me till the morning. Hope all going well with your stims. It's intense but it goe...

ARGC

Quoted from "Mavis" I hope you get that BFP too! Will keep everything crossed for you. Thanks so much Mavis! So far so good and definitely better than any other cycle at this stage. We got 19 eggs, 15 embryos which at day 2 are behaving themsleves and dividing nicely without much fragmentation. ET will either be tomorrow afternoon or Friday (if they get to blast). So I'm even more impressed with ARGC and I know the embryologists are watching over my little ones very closely. Lieselot - there's ...

ARGC

Hi JLC, Just wanted to say hello and welcome to ARGC! I'm in the middle of a cycle with them and have egg collection on Sunday after multiple failed cycles elsewhere. I don't have the same issue as you, but having been through the rather intense experience with ARGC you should feel confident that they'll really look after you, monitor you closely and throw every possible trick they have into your treatment to try and give you your BFP. So I think you're making the right decision to go with them....

5 fertilised but all failed to divide

hi Riley, I'm so sorry - tha's just rubbish news for you to hear and you must be devastated especially after getting a really good number of eggs. We had something similar on cycle 3, when we got 4 eggs collected (all others we got 13-16) and they degraded before the transfer so we didn't have any to transfer. As Rosie says, it's crushing to go through that after going through the rollercoaster of DR and stimms and EC, and it feels like there are no answers. Definitely make a follow up appt to d...

Endometrial cyst and IVF/ICSI

hi Jessta, Fertility docs have differing opinions on whether to remove endometriomas (medical term for chocolate cysts) when you're having IVF/ICSI, especially if they're asymptomatic. I had a laparoscopy in 2007 and had some adhesions removed and my cyst drained. It's gradually grown over the past couple of years and is now about 5cm. My consultant is reluctant to remove it as I am still getting follies from that ovary and he wants to conserve ovarian tissue. I've had 6 rounds of ICSI, all nega...

Woking Nuffield Hospital

Couldn't agree more - I've had a great experience with everyone at the Woking Nuffield. We've had a rough time of it and they've been very supportive along the way and the care is great. Having had cycle #3 elsewhere (QMH Roehampton - waste of space and took us a long time to get over the whole experience), I have something to compare with and very much recommend the Nuffield. Their costs are comparable to most other clinics, and they have higher than average success rates. As you can see, we're...

ACU, Queen Mary's Hospital, Roehampton

Hi there, I had ICSI at the QMH in Nov08 and didn't have a great experience at all . If you have a choice I strongly recommend going elsewhere. This was our NHS funded cycle and at the time we didn't have a choice of clinic even though we'd already had 2 previous ICSIs at Woking my 3rd ICSI. From the beginning I felt they took little notice of our history and instead just put us through their standard protocol - no dose adjustments, no bloods, straight to EC even though response wasn't great and...
