I'm sure we all have so much advice to give that we could fill novels. My biggest advice would be to just take it one step at a time, I have always tried to focus on the next step instead of the idea of a baby. I think it has made it easier as it is definitely not a fast process and there always seems to be much waiting time between the steps. I found trying to think too far ahead was just a bit overwhelming. Also remember that whatever you go through someone here has probably been through or is going through something similar so feel free to ask lots of questions even if they seem silly, I have learnt so much from reading everyone's posts as it would seem that everyone's experience is different.
Im with Monash too in Brisbane, have found them to be wonderful people.
