    Hello everyone

    I am back in Australia and thrilled to say I received a BFP on Wednesday! The beta was 704 (10 day post 5 day transfer) so it could be a strong singleton or twins. I guess only a scan in the next weeks will tell. Second beta today was 1500 so now I can start to believe I am actually pregnant, and can be happy about it. My fingers are crossed my numbers continue to go up and this one is a keeper!
    @Tiger41, we also were very indecisive when selecting a donor, and after the ones we enquired about were not available, we decided to take a step back and reconsider our options. We lost access to the database then. We told the agency the characteristics of the donor we were looking for, and asked to be notified if someone became listed who suited. We also looked into other clinics in the US, and had a phone consultation with one is San Diego. They operated differently to Hawaii, doing PGD on all donor cycles on the fifth day, and transferring on the sixth day. They said their pregnancy rates were over 80% with a 40% chance of twins when two embryos were transferred. Their costs were more than Hawaii, over $50K I think.

    Anyway after about six weeks Adrian contacted me with a new donor who might suit us, who had just been listed. We liked her, locked her in and committed to the cycle. We wanted a Hawaiian based donor as it seemed to work better with availability, scheduling, and they were cheaper (no travel costs). They seem to have more local girls added to the database more frequently as well.
    @Chiefsgirl, regarding swimming I consulted my own doctor and googled the internet a lot about the topic. Everyone seemed to have a differing opinion. So I decided to wait five days after transfer to ensure that implantation had taken place (if it was going to), avoided the beautiful resort swimming pools, and took a daily quick dip in the ocean. I figured infection was far less likely in salt water.
    @emski72, when are you off to SA? It must be so soon now!

    Congrats @jackbenimble! I think there might be two in there too! Yes I was told swimming in the ocean was ok, but not public/hotel pools, due to the chance of infection in the pools. I'll ask my FS here and see what he says. We have decided to do all the water/strenuous walks stuff in the first week and just go for some drives/sightseeing/shopping after et. But staying right on the beach, I'd love to have a swim every day, I love being in the ocean.
    @emski72 yay! Let's hope you are next for the bfp, and keep the luck going on this thread!

    Emski wishing you a safe and successful journey tomorrow. How long will you be away for?

    As we are all travelling long distances for DE how long is recommended to wait before flying after transfer?

    Thanks Tiger, my clinic day one day of 'taking it easy' not bed rest ... I'm flying home the day after transfer.
    How are you going with your donor search?
    Jackbenimble you must have a scan soon to see how many took?

    @Chiefsgirl & @jackbenimble, what clinic in Hawaii are you going through? I'm looking at doing DE in the US if my frosties don't work out. We've been referred to one in California by our FS, which seems very expensive.
