    (part 2)
    We would like to have our fourth by the end of next year, which would mean cycling around March (this also coincides with our anniversary, good excuse for a family holiday!) I have had the same OB for all three kids and have a good relationship with him (I had to have C sections, due to 4.5kg babies, I also hope this doesn't affect my chances) I'm worried about what he will think about going HT for a girl and hope he supports me. Who did you get to do all your pretesting etc?
    I know your over in the US at the moment and I'm so excited for you wishing you all the very best. So I appreciate your probably very busy and have a lot on your mind, so understand if you don't reply to this, but I was just wondering if you had any words of wisdom or advice you could give me?

    Hi Vickyaust, (part 1)
    I'm just new to this (apologies if i don't quite get the lingo, i am still learning)but find myself looking at forums that you have posted on alot of the topics and questions i have, i think we are somewhat similar, i'm also a nurse! However i am in sydney. I'm just starting out in this journey. I am 30. I have a 5 month old, my third boy, my other two are 3 and a half and 22 months. I fell naturally with all of them, rather quickly. I have contacted Stephanie at HRC, just waiting for her to reply with some consult times. I'm still bf, but I saw that Dr Potter likes you to stop for a few months before cycling. However in the last 4 and a half years I have only had about 5 periods (due to being pregnant or bf) and I think I have a long cycle around 48 days (prior to this I was on the pill and had a regular cycle) I hope this doesn't affect the process. I will need to do message in 2 parts as I wrote to much, sorry!
  3. Thanks for the message. I am trying to arrange to Skype meet with Dr Potter at the moment. Having trouble with Stephanie not getting back to me. I understand they are very busy after the 60 minutes article with 40+ Aussie new patients contacting them.
    I did IVF before my DS2 so I know the process. We have frozen embryos in Melbourne so I was planning on doing a transfer this month. Now we have decided we would prefer to work with Dr P at HRC.
    I mainly chose HRC as I have read SART is not really cheaper and we have family in California we can visit when we are at HRC. I also get the feeling from posts that the SART success rate is not as high as Dr P. I know the Melb IVF success rates are lower but that might reflect embryos not being chromosomally checked. If abnormal they are likely to result in a miscarriage.
    Where are you up to in the process?

    I also have two boys and would so love love love to have a girl.
    I am looking into why HRC rather then SART.
