Hi lovely lovely ladies
I've been reading your posts from sunny Cape Town, now that our internet connection is working and reading about all of this havign children at our age and twins. I too know exactly what you feel Tiggy, I'm 43 and never had children and sometimes it crosses my mind too, and then I think OMG, whats wrong with me, "you cant think like that.. not after all this" !! But I get it totally. I LOVE my solitude, and I honeslty cannot even begin to imagine what it will be like with a baby - how could I know... I've never had one! I often think, gosh, I cant even get myself out the door, how will I manage, and I guess I have to take bubs everywhere with me... can't leave them at home - so it will be a HUGE HUGE change. I'm trusting it will be natural and I will find it easy, but I am realistic too and know not everyone copes, it's not a walk in the park by any means for every Mum out there.
Thank you for all the well wishes, CT is wonderful, weather has been kind to us 25-28 degrees last 3 days and the people are sooooooooo friendly - and it's cheap !!
We had egg retrieval today - 13 eggs and our ED is doing well. I sent her a message this morning via the agency, saying if they were talking to her (they stay in contact the whole way through) to say we were thinking of her today. The agency also texted us at 1pm today to update us and say she was doing well, resting at home and had the Doctor been in touch to update us.... - so kind of them, our agency are honestly amazing - I couldn't have wished for more, in support and help from them.
Then this evening we rec'd a very moving message through our agency, but from our ED, to tell us how she felt and thank us for the gifts we got her, she said it made her week after an anxious time & was so happy when the Doctor woke her up to tell her how well she had done, she said she had to fight back tears of happiness for us & was glad we had chosen her.
Even though I haven't met her, I feel such a connection and am so happy she is ok and has shared her feelings with us. Its a huge thing for our ED's in what they are doing for others.
Ladies - I have a question about the progesterone !! we are going to do 1 injection per day, and the clinic was happy to give us a box of Crinone as well, so that's what we are going to do. 1 inj/1 Crinone per day.
I'm going to try and order another supply of Gestone, as per recommendations to do so whilst over here due to the cheaper price.
With the Crinone - shall I order more of this here too? I cant remember for the life of me how much it is in Australia? ....
Can someone please have a look at one of their boxes and tell me the cost so I can work it out here, to see if I should get before we leave. (I thought I had that written down on my very large folder of information I brought over with me, but its not there)
..... and I cant really ask our house sitter (who is my colleague - and has no idea why we are here, other than a "wedding") to climb up into the spare bedroom's wardrobe and go behind all the things I hid in front of all my fertility books and medications before I left - so she wouldn't accidentally stumble across them.......... to look at the box and tell me !!
Hi to everyone else, best be off, its nearly 11pm, the latest I've been up since been here, and should be in bed, considering I will probably be up again at 3-4am
Hi to everyone else - sorry I'm not reading over - but so many emails to catch up on.
We're scheduled for transfer Saturday and will be transferring 2. We've come too far not to give it our best shot. On the photo board this morning when we met our Nurse to show us how to do the Gestone injections, were so many twins........ mmmmh
