Re : PE and trying ro conceive again 3+ years

<t>I'm so sorry for the loss of your baby and that you've been on this infertility roller-coaster.<br/> <br/> Like Caryn said, I do believe it's best if you can find an infertility specialist and a perinatologist who will work together with you as a team. My perinatologist told me that some of the f...

Re : Would like to have multiples

<t>Hi Erica,<br/> <br/> I was on clomid for a while when TTC. My OB/GYN told me that it could thin out the uterine lining when pregnant. For some women, it also does have some other serious side effects (as Sheri said). It's something that I would only take under a physician's supervision after some...

Re : Trying again after twins, chances of preeclampsia?

<t>Hi Shelley,<br/> <br/> I'm glad that your boys are healthy. I am in total agreement with doing a preconception consult with a maternal-fetal specialist, one that you are very comfortable with, and who will answer all of your questions patiently and to your satisfaction. He or she can go over "wha...

Re : Chronic hypertension/delivered 2nd baby?

<r>Hi Lee Ann,<br/> <br/> I am so sorry to hear that you lost your first daughter to preeclampsia. <br/> <br/> I had chronic hypertension before my first pregnancy. The twins made it to 38.4 weeks gestational age, and I got preeclampsia postpartum. My second pregnancy was six years later, and the pr...

Re : Question for the IVF ladies

<t>Hi Becky,<br/> <br/> I am so sorry that you had a bad experience with your MFM. If in your shoes, I would do exactly what Sheri said--find another perinatologist. There are great ones out there who not only have the world-class knowledge and expertise to get us through pregnancies successfully, b...

Re : Question for the IVF ladies

<t>Hi Becky,<br/> <br/> I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your daughter.<br/> <br/> Haven't tried refreezing blasts, but when doing this FET, the RE highly recommended that we transfer two, since our two embryos were frozen together (as yours are) and since refreezing after a single embryo tra...

Re : If you've done IVF.....

<t>Hi Becky,<br/> <br/> My BPs went up during my FET cycle with my son. Everything remained under control, though. The key to success in our case was the close collaboration between my RE and perinatologist. The RE eliminated the birth control pill (containing estrogen) from my protocol because my p...

Re : IVF and risk of multiples

<t>We decided to do another IVF/FET cycle after we had post-partum preeclampsia with our twins. The FET did run a risk of multiples (two embryos, frozen together in one vial), and the risk of preeclampsia was still there. What made the difference for my husband and myself was our perinatologist havi...
