No real advice for you, but I had treatment at Guys and the team are amazing. I cycled with a girl who had PGD as part of her treatment and we both ended up with twins. Very best of luck to you.

Three embryo transfer?!?

You might find some useful information here: One at a time - Risks of IVF -Multiple births - twins- from fertility treatment. I have twins and thank goodness they are now healthy, but they had a rotten start and knowing what I now know I'm not that I would make the same decision if I was starting over again.

Any chance of a natural PG after a failed vasectomy reversal?

Wow! Didn't expect to see this old thread pop up today. How fantastic to see that miracles can happen, although following our happy ICSI ending with twins, my DH would not be best pleased if I got PG again. I hope that you have a safe and happy pregnancy.

Is it tooth decay?

Can you try to change dentists? My girls were so distracted by the magic chair and the other cool stuff the dentist showed them that they didn't even notice when he was checking their teeth. Your dentist sounds dreadful!

New Member seeking some advice

I have heard that the ARGC success rate is linked to the fact that they are selective and pick who they will take as patients to maintain it. If you don't go down the natural route t is worth having a look at the ACU at Guys which is more mainstream and less radical that ARGC and also cheaper.

How many embryos to defrost?

I had the same advice as Net. I would challenge them on the advice you have been given. It doesn't take long for them to defrost (when I turned up for ET they hadn't started yet and sent me off for tea and cake) so they should be able to defrost just one and then another if the first doesn't make it. Good luck!

green mucus poo (sorry!)

I found our GP useless and most GPs are quick to diagnose reflux and know nothing about cows milk protein intolerance (CMPI). I eventually took her privately to a paediatrican who specialises in gastro issues and allergies / intolerances in babies and children. They can't test for CMPI so it is a question of instinct and he sent us off to get a second opinion from another gastro paediatrician before confirming the diagnosis. My LO was put on a special formula where the CMP is already broken so i...

green mucus poo (sorry!)

My LO had cows milk protein intolerance but it never manifested itself as funny coloured poo. She was very unsettled all day and used to constantly grown in pain.

Potty Training Twins

I did mine seperately. One was ready, the other wasn't. DD2 potty trained in August when she was 2 years 4 months, and DD1 over Xmas when she was 2 years, 8 months. DD2 was obviously ready when I trained her and she got it in 3 days. DD1 wasn't the slightest bit bothered that I didn't train her and was clearly not ready as she would only wear the potty on her head. When I finally trained DD1 she was also ready and it again took just 3 days. It was far easier than I expected it to be. Just make a...

When should I be concerned about braxton hicks, 18 weeks pregnant with twins

The midwife you spoke to sounds like an idiot. Although it is unlikely to be pre-term labour, they can monitor you and check the length of your cervix - a shortened cervix is a sign of pre-term labour - and if necessary they can put in a stitch to keep your cervix closed. If you are worried you should insist on a scan and ask to see a consultant.

Does she do it to just wind me up?

Every night I come home to a report from our nanny about how brilliantly my girls have eaten. And all weekend I have to fight to get them to eat. I've decided to stop letting it wind me up on the basis that they eat well for 5 days a week so it won't do them any harm if they choose to go hungry at the weekend!

Tese/ icsi

From the Guy's website it looks like my DH had a general rather than sedation. But he did start off with a local (against the recommendation of our consultant) and had to be knocked out halfway through. It is a painful procedure (but not worse than childbirth!!) so general is probably the way to go.

Tese/ icsi

My husband also had SSR and we have nearly 3 year old twins. We were also at Guys privately and the quality of our treatment was exceptional. With regard to the price differential for a general anaesthetic, there might be some confusion between local, general and sedation which is somewhere in the middle. Local is not advised (my husband insisted on it but had to be knocked out midway through the procedure), general is unnecessary as it is a minor procedure and a general is risky, whereas with s...

Is it safe to fly?

It's absolutely no problem. I flew to Australia when I was 6 weeks pregnant (so 4 weeks after ET). Had my first scan in Sydney - a day I will never forget, celebrated with cupcakes, milkshake and a trip to the Opera.
