    That's what I'm going to the GP for Rainbow. Barbados only require a urine test and that would be it for them. I want numbers and requested that when I made the appt. They have a path lab next door so I should get the result that day. My transfer was 6 December for a 5 day blasty so should have a definite result via urine test anyway. I'm undecided as to whether to do a urine test in the morning or not. I'll wait and see how I feel at the time.

    I'm southside in Perth. Perth is actually a bit of a backwards place at times. My first appt with the FS I was told a caesarean would be automatic as I was over 40. No other reason. There's no intrallipid treatment here, you need to travel interstate. Even NK cell testing is only done by one specialist and he charges thousands as he insists on using a full general anaesthetic, theatre etc. I've worked my way round what I can and other things like the NK cell testing and Intrallipids I let go as too hard to achieve.

    Amazing how many risk factors seem to increase with IVF or other fertility treatment. I will continue with regular breast ultrasounds now as well as thin smears, as I've seen 3 women get breast/uterine cancer (one is waiting to die, one has died) when their babies get to around 2. Graves as well? laned, I wish you all the best.

    2whites, a warm congratulations. What wonderful news. I hope baby number 2, is as easy as pie!

    After a year of lurking on this wonderful thread while DH and I tried to conceive through four miserable rounds of IVF with a spectacular lack of success - just one egg to transfer from all those attempts - we have finally made it to South Africa. And what a holiday destination it is. But importantly tomorrow is transfer day at CFC. After collecting 7 eggs from our donor, five have fertilised and as at today (Day 4) five were still going strong. Hopefully this will be the case tomo, but obviously after a year of reading other people's experiences I am not taking anything for granted. But I am positive none the less. For all those considering travelling to Cape Town and SA, I would recommend it highly. It is a fabulous place to visit and holiday, especially with such a favourable exchange rate, let alone a great place to secure donor eggs. I've found the clinic to be busy, professional, friendly-ish. They failed to call to let us know how many eggs were collected or give us a Day 3 report, as they had said they would. But from the forum I had heard they could be bit hit and miss, and so wasn't too fussed. DH and I both realised we couldn't control the egg numbers or the Day 3 progress so we just did nt stress about. Hoping to remain in this zen-like state for the next 2 weeks - easier said than done. Although with so much to do it's been really easy to forget our real purpose for being here.
    A big thanks to all who have contributed to this forum - we wouldn't be here without you.
    And best wishes and good luck to Net and Helen and all others in the 2ww. Fingers crossed for you all.

    my POAS is negative so no good news from me. The fellow solo Mum, I had been intending to travel to Barbados with, emailed me yesterday to try to be encouraging but then had the lack of tact to tell me how excited she was about her 20 week scan and her dilemma if she had to tell her daughter it was a boy as she wanted a girl. At first I was just shocked at her thoughtlessness but then really wanted to hurt her. This is her 3rd child and I really would just like life to give me a go at motherhood just once.

    It will be 2 years before I can afford to do this again and I'm wondering if I will be too old by then.

    Helen and Feather good luck with the 2Ww. I hope you have better success.

    Oh Net.... I know how you feel.... so sorry to hear that. Its such a huge thing to travel overseas and have so much excitement leading up to it, the underlying hope, and then coming back home to find out its not the news you were wanting. You poor thing, I don't know what to say, as I know how it feels and the initial few weeks and then the weeks ahead of that... it's an up and down roller coaster for sure, or anger, resentment, disappointment and then renewed hope and ways of finding a way to do it again. Theres plenty of women that have got pregnant in their late 40's so you can do it again if you choose to. Maybe you could look at trying to find a donor here if its a little more affordable? However, I understand if that's not an option, as it's not for me, and I did briefly re-visit that idea as well when we recently rec'd our BFN. Thinking of you.

    Feather - thank you so much for your post. Its wonderful that you're sharing with us and especially the new girls going over to CT. It is a wonderful place isn't it. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there, more than we ever thought we would.
    Your #'s are awesome for 4 days, good luck for the 5th day and transfer! And again, thanks for popping in and sharing.

    Helenmac - Whoo hoo... heres everything crossed for you - you deserve it !
