    Hi Ladies,

    Sorry for the lack of noise from me lately. The last 5 weeks have kept us really busy. I read all the updates on here but usually on my tablet or phone (and by the time I start to respond the little boss calls for me!)

    Our little boy Benjamin is doing really well. We have been in Emergency twice though. He has since been diagnosed with Silent Refulx and Hayfever. Our donor had noted that she had hay fever as well as her brother and father (and so does my husband) so that explains little Benjamins sneezes since the day he was born. The worry never stops though. I now fret about people coming near him who have a cold or have not been immunised. I never take him to shopping centres. But took him to an outdoor cafe a couple of weeks ago with my parents and bumped into a friend who patted him on the head and then proceeded to tell me that she had just been to see her dad who had gastro! I nearly died and I was so angry. People just don't think when it comes to newborns - don't even get me started on those who choose not to immunise their children. Anyway, after his 3 month injections I will feel a little more relieved as this is when they start to form a bit of an immunity to Whooping Cough.

    Jodie - so sorry to hear of your BFN. I cannot thank you enough for starting this thread as although I did not hear about egg donation in SA from here, it was first thread I found on Google.

    GirlfromSydney - are you with IVF Australia? I cycled with them prior to and following my cycle in SA and they kept me on the pessaries. I was dreading the thought of those injections, but you know what - they were so much easier and less messy than the pessaries and crinone (I used up supplies of both I had remaining from other IVF cycles). TO the person who was asking about the lumps - Elaine told me not to rub them after they were injected even if lumps formed, she advised to just find a different spot. I was lucky, after about a week, I wasn't even sore from them anymore and the bruising disappeared very fast.

    Wish - your little fella is very handsome indeed. I'm so happy for you. I did read your email, so sorry I have not responded as yet. I've been meaning to and then never get around to it. I will do so though! xx

    To the ladies who have had BFN's - I am so sincerely sorry and hope that all of you take extra good care of yourselves. The negatives are so hard to take, but the larger success rate with SA makes it the very best option for most of us. IVF is such a hideous numbers game regardless of the young donors and the best of cycles. I pray that if you decide to go back and try again that your outcome be different. For those of you who choose to walk away from this - do so knowing that you did everything you could and left no stone unturned.

    Congrats to all the ladies who also have BFP's. Hoping that your pregnancies all go well.

    Our little guy is just so handsome and has the most lovely little personality - we couldn't love him more if we tried. He's settled into our family like he's always been here. People often comment how much he looks like me - too funny. I got out our donors profile and he is very much like our donor. I'm just so grateful that the gift she gave to us.

    Lol Rainbow. No rush to reply to my email - I know how busy newborns can make us :-) So sorry to hear Benjamin has silent reflux too. The paediatrician picked up Henry's at 5 weeks and he's on Losec which has made a difference already. A change of formula to Nan Sensitive also worked wonders - no more grunting and straining on waking and fart central LOL Henry also sneezes a lot but paediatrician said its a newborns way of clearing the nose from milk that often goes up there in reflux babies ;-) Henry's cot is also on a 30 degree angle resembling a ski slope. I've had to buy a Safe T Sleep wrap to stop him sliding to the bottom. I hope Benjamin gets some relief soon.

    Rainbowchaser, hope little Benjamin gets healthier every day after all these emergencies.

    I started with ivf australia, but then my donor moved and i went via genea. None of them mentioned that they can manage me from sydney and i can do ivf overseas.

    My first ivf though i did at my country of origin with my cousin, but just because my cousin offered her help back then. It took time to prepare before cycling thats another reason why it did not consider overseas egg donation as i thought i have to be in the country for three month or so, could not afford not to work, we have no savings...

    Lost like 6 years of my time and money and put my life on pause to have kids, i wish i knew about SA option earlier, i even thought it is illegal to use overseas donor eggs as now i am an australian citizen! How stupid of me!

    My both donors were 2 years older then me. And i need to update my signature bloke now as inturned 34 in late May, so you can see how old were my donors.

    i also asked couple of my friends here in Sydney, three of them looked at me like i am a crazy person and two of them strated to avoid any contact with me, which really broke my heart

    Now with confirm pregnancy i pray every day that this one stick for 9 month and finally I can hold a baby of my own in my hands. Thats why i worry about everything and if it means to do progesterone injections/ pessaries till the birth- i am prepared to do so!!!

    xxoo

    MrsErin... wow, that egg fert rate is amazing. Lol - you have enough embryos there for all of us!! When I told my DH a few minutes ago, he said, "we want that donor!". That's definitely the trick to have a nice young donor :-))

    Wishmeluck... your little boy is just so beautiful. I'm sure you treasure every moment, silent reflux or not xx

    Rainbowchaser... I so agree with you, about sick people. I work with a class full of kids who are always sniffly, but I always get annoyed when other people visit or I visit them, and then they say they're sick with something or other - if you're sick, just phone and postpone lunch, not hard!! I can't afford to get sick during all this IVF (already taking enough time off work, without getting colds etc). Thanks for all your lovely sentiments - I had tears in my eyes by the time I got to the end of your post.

    Bertie, a young donor is great but I never expected these numbers. On her previous cycle she got 12 eggs and 6 fertilised. Just shows how different 2 cycles can be, even for a 26 yo.

    I tried to post this question on the IVF Board with no reply, maybe someone here has advice?: Hi everyone, we are about to go to Cape Town for a FET and have started researching travel insurance. Turns out our ANZ Platinum Card with free travel insurance does not cover 'medical procedures' overseas. I called 4 other travel insurance companies including BUPA who said their insurance would be void if we had a 'medical procedure' whilst on holiday. They don't seem to differentiate between a quick embryo transfer and major surgery if you are overseas. I asked the person on the phone if going overseas to get a tooth extracted would void my insurance and she said yes. I would like to know if anyone in our situation just went ahead and didn't tell the insurance company about their treatment overseas. Or us there a specialist company that deals with people travelling overseas for treatment?
