    OMG Crystal that makes two of us eeeeekkkkkkkk. It feels a lot more like it's on the way now. It's good that a few of us are doing this, with Alice ahead of us, beacuse it just makes the adventure/endeavour feel more secure and sane etc

    Sooty May let us know as soon you can. Thinking of you!!!

    I have stopped coffee. Cruel!

    Tiggy xxx PS we leave on the 19th, flying qantas via Dublin. We will stop off in Ireland for a week on the way home. OMG is this real???!!!

    I am so grateful for your responses!

    Thanks Alice284 for your detailed reply and support. I have indeed emailed many Czech clinics and started a spreadsheet [I'm a big nerd that way]. So glad to hear you are a successful stat!

    Tiggylig, thank you too for your reply. I am 43, to take away the mystery


    We head off today for the hols and back on 6 January, after which I will be keeping an eye on this thread and having a chat...wishing you all a happy holiday!

    Thanks again.

    Have a fabulous holiday Applepie. No spreadsheeting allowed only lying on the beach plus alcohol in extremely moderate amounts OF COURSE. We will be here when you get back.

    Alice, I hope you don't mind me asking, but do you remember how long after depot comes AF? Mine isn't here yet (three days) and I starting to wonder where it is...

    Have a fab weekend ladies xx Tig

    Tiggy I just got my AF this afternoon, Not sure when your natural cycle is but I was due anyway for mine today so I would have gotten it regardless. I would email Eva and ask her when you need to have it by. Have you emailed to ask if all is on track with your donor? I'm on the fence about it and thinking maybe leave well enough alone but I'm curious as well.

    Hi Crystal, I think AF is on its way today, thank goodness! I hadn't even thought about asking about the donor. I will ask next week. I am one of those people who would like to know as much as possible. I think if you feel curious you can trust those feelings. I don't think the information can hurt, ultimately, even if it makes you a feel a bit funny or awkward. Do you think? On the other hand, you know yourself the best. if it would distress you to know stuff, then maybe not...I am not even sure what we get to know! Sorry to be of no help! Hoping your weekend going well. Not much longer now...

    Oh ladies I am really sorry to sound nuts and neurotic. I don't want to email and ask Eva in case she gets annoyed with me - I know - what am I? Seven years old? Help! I keep hearing about Clexane and other drugs - has Eva forgotten something? Should I be taking Clexane? So far she has only prescribed me the Estrogen tablets. I suspect I am being ridiculous. Maybe it' just getting closer to the time...

    Tiggy, I didn't take clexane (it's a super blood thinner), sometimes people have adjustments made to their protocols taking into account their medical needs etc. Are you going to take baby aspirin (anipoprin? can't remember spelling) this is what is usually on the generic protocol. I had big giant clexane injections in hospital after the twins were born and they thought I had a blood clot, they were horrible, so be thankful you don't need to have it!

    Apple pie - welcome to the nerd club, you are not alone on your spreadsheeting! The real nerd question is, have you inserted formulas into your cells?! I'm a big fan of the SUM=(blahblah) so I can get my totals as I work through the costs!

    Have you heard back from many clinics? Some got back to me almost instantly and others took about a week.

    In other news, we arrived back home safe and not so sound, although the munchkins slept basically all the way home (are all the way over too!) when we got home we were so tired we wanted to crash but they just wanted to play and screamed when we tried to put them to bed! Oh well, you win some, you lose some! I'd rather they cry at home than in the car!

    Also Kheeki, when the weather hit 40 I thought of you and hoped you weren't out camping in it, how hot!!! You'll all have to put your air conditioners on to freezing to start acclimatising!

    Tiggy I have to take Clexane in my cycle and it's what Alice mentioned a blood thinner. I have clotting issues mixed in with my immunity problems.

    Alice glad you made it home safe and sound !!

    Thanks ladies, for explaining. I think it's just me finding things to worry about.

    Alice I totally understand about babies sleeping in transit and then staying awake all night. But you are right, roll with the punches, you win some and lose some.

    This depot is having an impact. Crystal, I don't know how you are faring, but I feel a bit strange. It could be just from doing too much on the weekend, having friends to lunch, drinking champagne, having a heavy AF - I dont' know, but I feel pretty wrecked. It's days like this I think, OMG if I can't handle a depot what am I doing? I freak out a bit - but then, depots don't smile or cuddle or chat. PLus our beloved DS going through some intense toilet training issues. Mastering number ones like a champion but resisting number twos - it's all very intense. He keeps telling me, when I take him to the potty, 'I can't do it! I can't do it!' then moaning about his tummy ache. I keep offering him the nappy, just to ease the pressure, but no go. Poor chappy. My DH tells him all the right things man to man and is most encouraging.

    Sooty May are you okay? I am thinking of you and hope everything is ok with results etc. Sending love x

    Ladies, if I dont get a chance to say it, Happy CHristmas. Take it easy, rest up because we have a big adventure ahead of us. I am away for a week or so, then back on New Years Eve. Love and hugs and good luck for a safe and happy break xxx

    I just wanted to say a special thanks to all of you for your wonderful support this year and a big Merry Christmas

    This forum has been so friendly and has also given me hope, strength and reassured me in difficult times.

    The friends I have made that are going through the same thing and the ones that have personally emailed me and gone out of their way to support me has been of more help than you can imagine. I know it's a online world... something I have never been a part of in the past, but this is special and you have made this journey so much easier for me.

    So from the bottom of my heart I thank you all, and wish you a wonderful Christmas, enjoy this special time - we all strive to join you soon!

    Special thanks to ... Crystal and Tiggy for your lovely emails xx oo

    I hope I haven't missed anyone.

    Lots of Love Sooty
