I've just moved from the Central Coast to Newcastle (NSW) so I'll need to find a good GP here anyway but I think I might just run it past my FS and see how she responds. I think I'd like the reassurance of having the sounding board as you said.
Vixjc, can you remind me which clinic did you use?
I'm actually really excited about it, initially I was on another forum trying to find a local donor but its really all so complicated and drawn out. My biggest concern was (and still is a little) that my child won't ever be able to find his/her 'genetic mother' if she wants to. But I've been reading about epigenetics etc and I'll just have to cross that bridge if and when I get to it!
Will you be taking little Thomas with you? We have a 6yr old son that will have to come with us (grandparents will be touring Australia at the time plus we kinda hate the idea of leaving him behind) - so it may be a bit of a juggle at the clinic but hopefully it will be ok. We're planning on making it a bit of a holiday.
