I'm guessing by the sound of it that you are close to London or a major city if you have a choice of clinic. We were lucky enough to like Coventry a lot, which was fortuitous, given that (at 31 miles away) it was our closest option; it was also brand new and purpose built. Travelling into Birmingham would have been such a nightmare.

The staff make or break the whole experience. A good nurse can make a bad day bearable. A bad nurse on a bad day makes you utterly desolate. Good days are sometimes few & far between with IVF! But I am wishing you lots of good days ahead, nevertheless, and a lovely BFP at the end of it.

Not too late to ask for your immune panel results?

Just popping over from my blog to say thank you for the link. I really appreciate it!

Chemistry does count for something, and if you're constantly annoyed while you're dealing with a clinic, then it might not be the right clinic for you. IVF is unpleasant enough.

Good luck dear Thalia! I hope that IVF surprises you this time!

Dear Thalia, you? sound like an idiot? Piffle. I think it does make a lot of sense to listen to your gut, and just not liking a clinic is reason enough not to go there. IVF really is stress enough without that component to deal with. Plus -- aside from that little blog outing episode, and the less said about that the better -- Dr Candour has always seemed to be just right for you, very accommodating, open, knowledgeable and compassionate. As for changes, aren't you doing a slightly different protocol this time, or am I forgetting something?

I'm very curious and hopeful about your scan this morning. Hope it was a good one. XO

I had forgotten than it was TNBR where the pre-Pob scan took place. It sounds like that was just about the only positive thing to have come from your interactions with TNBR -- and that was *despite* them.

Thanks for clearing that up! Let us know how things are moving along when you have a chance...xx

I don't think you sound like an idiot. If the clinic's practices are going to stress you out, that's not helpful. If they aren't forthcoming with test results, that's not helpful. If the doctors aren't accessible, that's not helpful. You clearly can get pregnant, so I think you've made a good choice.

I am a firm believer in going with your gut feeling. IVF is bad enough as it is - then to have to deal with people that annoy you is just too much. I am going to miss Dr. Shoe and Dr. Casual - I am curious who will be the lead actor in this next phase of the reproductive drama :) Wishing you nothing but the best!

I think you know my views on TNBR clinic already....and my affection for the clinic too. Feeling comfortable counts for a lot in my view.

Doesn't sound like the best bedside manner... interesting about their attitude to test results...
