    Mine didn't do the Progesterone needles either but I have pessaries that would get me by and CFC I could use them until I get there. He did my clexane as well and that was only $36.90 to fill out.

    I am with HBF with my phi.

    Ladies, you do not start progesterone until the day of egg collection and as you seem to be on a fresh cycle you will all be in SA at that time and therefore get the progesterone I.e gestone from the clinic. Why do you want to purchase the progesterone from the international pharmacy when you can purchase it from the clinic for way cheaper?

    I was wondering that too Jodie, my paperwork says to get the gestone in SA as it's much cheaper too...

    Hi ladies. Well I have done it again...I have a lot to catch up on.

    Been laying low since getting back from Canberra at Christmas....I came back to 35 plus degree weather, with what felt like 1000% humidity!!!

    I have done a quick scan and a HUGE congratulations to helenmac on twins....fabulous news. Will do a bit of reading tonight.

    AFM...Im nearly 29 weeks. Had our 28 week growth scan last Tuesday. All is going well....bub is still travelling along at about 3 to 4 weeks ahead on growth, which is great except for thinking of the exit point!!!! Our donor is over 6 foot and DP is not exactly small either, so I guess a big baby was always on the cards.

    Still cant tell if bub has cleft palette with the lip. I have had some wonderful support...CleftPals Qld, Australian Breastfeeding Association and a beautiful, wonderful lady in the Cairns area that had a baby with a cleft lip 17 months ago...my Ob put me in touch with her. I have been doing a lot of research and it all seems less scary now.

    Hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend.

    With me my specialist was just saying he doesn't prescribe it, I just gave him the list of what Cfc asked for in meds, he actually doesn't thinks its necessary to inject and thinks pessaries are just as efficient. I will be using the pessaries because I am not in Cape Town for the same time amount as some of you because we are using donor sperm.

    I only mentioned the progesterone as I too gave the medication list to my doctor and he gave me scripts for all except the gestone. In addition I plan on asking the SA doctor if I can substitute the gestone needle for pessaries/tablets as I have an enormous amount of meds that were given to me (paid for as part of my cycle costs) when I completed my last IVF. (We didn't get to transfer so very little of it was used.) Seems a waste not to use it...

    I do have a question for those who have BTDT how did the flying with needles go?
    Hand luggage or not? Were u harassed at airports? Etc. the reason I ask is because we were kind of hoping to add a few days in Singapore /Dubai to the trip to help add to the 'holiday' feel plus my BIL lives and works in the UAE. The only thing that worries me is carrying all the meds.

    Blinky - We carried all meds, needles etc in a carry on bag - there were that many of them coming back, that one bag was filled with them. We didn't even have an eyelid batted at us. I had letters just in case (CFC will write letters too if you ask), saying what I was carrying. We declared some wooden items coming back in to Melbourne and opened up the case that showed all the meds as well, I couldn't believe they didn't even look through it - I was nervous as, nor did they look at the letter, either way (but as everyone else has said in earlier posts, have the letters just incase). We flew via Singapore so had to take that carry on bag of meds back through the x rays when we changed planes - no questions at all. Hope that helps & it's just as easy for you.

    Great news Blinky, I hope things move quickly for you now. When were you originally going over?

    yay blinky, that's awesome. I'm in the process of writing a letter to my donor asking if she will donate for us. Something Sunshine has said isn't compulsory but I thought it would be nice.
