    On a side note, I went to Medicare last week and they said I wasn't allowed to claim anything back on one of Dr M appointments, as they said it's "linked" to one of my IVF cycles. I said that "that's not right, since 1) you're allowing me to claim two other appointments with Dr M, and 2) my appointments with Dr M are technically immune issues and doesn't actually have anything to do with my FS at the IVF clinic."

    I then spoke to G at Dr M's rooms, and she said that this has occurred before, and that she would get the "other" secretary to write me a letter to Medicare about it. I first thought she was being funny, and was referring to herself, but no, apparently there is another secretary who works a couple of days a week.

    I haven't got the letter yet, but I was back in Medicare today, and thought I would push them, since it's obviously their problem. After lots of explaining, they said they would look into it, and the lady wondered whether the "head office" knows about the anomoly. Has anyone else come across this? Perhaps double check that all your #105 appointments with Dr M did get paid, as it was lucky that I noticed it on the Medicare receipt originally, as the Medicare lady didn't actually tell me that I was getting nothing for it.

    @MGC Bertie this happened to me when I tried to claim my initial consult with Dr M. Medicare said that it was too similar to a consult claimed from IVF clinic and wouldn't put it through. Medicare also had an issue as Dr M's invoice had 2 claim numbers and only 1 is allowed. I tried to follow it up by it all got too hard.

    I have been having a little bit of red blood when I wipe, mainly inside the white muck that comes out when using pessaries. I hope it's just the pessaries causing it. I would be 5 weeks tomorrow. Had a blood test this afternoon so will know tomorrow if HCG is still adequately rising. I am so over worrying about miscarrying.

    Snowy, lots of women bleed early on in pregnancy, try not to stress too much, it may be irritation from the pessaries.

    Because I have phone consults with Dr M I can't even claim Medicare or private health. I think that sucks as I'm getting the same service as someone who is sitting in front of him, just because I'm not face to face shouldn't make a difference.

    Miss Sagi.... is that true? Don't they still just write 105 down on the receipt, then Medicare wouldn't know any difference?

    Thanks miss sagi. I try to take each day as it comes. It helps that the prednisolone makes me feel chipper. I would normally be really affected by spotting but I feel relatively calm. Odd how good prednisolone makes me feel. My FS is concerned by my dose of clexane. He says 40mg is very high for someone that weighs less than 50kgs. I said I would rather take it and see what happens than see what happens if I don't! He reckons it wouldn't help with the spotting.

    I couldnt claim my phone consult either. It actually says that on the receipt from Dr M.

    MGC Bertie, It's actually typed on the receipt and you can't miss it, smack bang in the middle. "This is not refundable from Medicare or private fund". And there's no code on it either.

    Snowy, i think clexane can make you bleed too. Pred is such an upper, clean the house from top to bottom while you can and good luck sleeping. I found Dex quite different, no highs and no energy like Pred, but on both I ate and put on both 8kgs in 8mths.
