Well, my consult with Dr. G. went well. He seemed very nice and down to earth. In fact, there was so much small talk at the front end, I felt myself getting a little irritated and uncomfortable. LOL. Whatever.
I didn’t learn too much more than what I already know about myself and the IVF process. I did learn more about CCRM’s process and also that he lumped me into a category of women who have a 65% success rate with a 30-40% twinning rate. The actual success rate for me may change once they’ve seen me and done the test themselves. I also learned that we could potentially get started right away – meaning as soon as I get my period (which I hope stays away because it would mean that I’m pregnant!) we would make arrangements to fly to CCRM and stay for two nights.
It was interesting that he went over the risks involved very carefully – both the risks to me and also to any resulting baby(ies). None of the other doctors have done so with me. They’re pretty scary though rare…
MH has no idea how our call went other than me sending him a text that it went well and was very interesting. I know that based on the stats alone that he will want us to choose CCRM. I’m probably pretty close to calling it CCRM too but I am pretty nervous about cycling so far away. That’s pretty ridiculous, huh?
I’m also really anxious about flights, travel, how it all works, etc. I need to let it go though, right?!
If you were me: would you go to CCRM or the other (for those of you newly following, the other is Oregon Reproductive Medicine in Portland) with also really great success rates but not as high as CCRM?
On the TWW front, I’m on CD25. I continue to have wacky dreams, extreme exhaustion and tugging/pulling in my uterus/belly. Would you test on or after Thanksgiving Day? I’m usually a pretty regular 26-28 day cycle girl. OR, would a digital test tell me the truth right now and you wouldn’t wait – you would test tomorrow morning? If I’m not pregnant, I would get my period on Thanksgiving Day or on Friday.
What would you do?
Clearly, I’m incapable of making decisions on my own given this post. LOL 🙂
