Re: Looking for advice-what would you do? Maybe ghost???

gi! thanks for your great info. I called my doc today and really advocated for doing lovenox injections just to cover our bases. We have decided to plan for day three with AH. if for some reason they look terrible, we will put them back in day 2 without AH. After you mentioned the intralipid infusio...

Re: Looking for advice-what would you do? Maybe ghost???

Re: FET--Any hope--GHOST

Brit thanks for the post! We are on our last try....this final try will be IVF #6. I am somewhat upset it took this long to dx me with LAc however I understand that b/c its such a small possibility it was causing my miscarriages that I needed to have indications in order to test me. Knowing this was...

Re: FET--Any hope--GHOST

Just thought I would close the loop. It appears my history was relevant, to my dismay. My three embryo's survived the thaw beautifully and did not lose any cells. They were essentially as good after as before freeze. However, we ended the cycle with another chemical. I did increase my endometrium 3x...

Re: GHOST---should I bother or am I crazy??

sweet pea~ thanks for the post. I have called them but honestly monitoring is an issue. I live in central/northern maine so the drive for appointments would be brutal and nearly impossible.
