    Then u should aim a bit later to do the biopsy. U can always have BT few days before just to make sure u ovulated. Most FS is usually flexible on a procedure like this. For DrM, it was hard as I have to book flight and fly over.

    And to everybody having phone consults with Dr M, you can claim them from Medicare. Just ask Gwyneth to give you the correct receipt.
    Do you know what the correct receipt is? I asked G and she said no you cannot claim from Medicare. She said if you could try wouldn't stamp it with the no refund from Medicare stamp. Thanks.

    Soclose: I got the feeling that the medicare is starting to crack down the teleconsult. The normal consult would have 105 or 106 on it. But with teleconsult, it not claimable. If it is 10599 or 10699, pretend to be video consult, it is claimable. The problem with the latter is that you would need to have initial consult lodged and claimed so they have a record of it. I was on PHI for my first consult so medicare has no record of me so subsequent "video" consult cant be claimed. The rebate is quite little. ~$40. But I know every penny is saving.

    BTW, the medicare website says telehealth financial incentives program ceases on June 30, 2014. This means one cant even claim video consult in the future unless is telehealth MBS items.

    God I hate this. Just because we have issues we get ripped off.

    Hi ladies, re the Medicare rebate for telephone consultations with Dr M, my receipts are marked as item 105, E-telehealth consultation. I am in Melb and there is geographic criteria to be able to claim a rebate from Medicare - you have to live X kms away for the dr. Medicare process it as a 105 and 99 to give you the max rebate. Ordinarily, I get just under $55 back but as I have reached the safety net threshold, I now get just over $165 back on each consult. Originally Medicare did not know how to process this claim and one lady who managed to work it out asked to use my receipt in a team meeting to educate the others so it may be that you need to persist with the person whom you see at the Medicare office to ensure he/she is giving you the correct info and processing your claim correctly. I am yet to claim amounts incurred post 30 June 14 but will do so soon and will let you know whether or not I receive a rebate.

    There is an inconsistency with the person who writes receipts at DrM office. No, it isnt G and i dont seem to be able to talk to this person directly as she/he makes mistake all the time.

    I def rattle!

    Today was a bad day, a lady at work announced her pregnancy (at 9.5 weeks no less) and by her due dates got pregnant during my last fet, I was so gutted I had to go for a drive and cry.

    I get it. My best friend for the last ten years who I haven't seen this year due to been busy and distance ect. Well I learnt from a work colleague who lives near her that she is pregnant, very pregnant. Makes sense as she said she would start trying this year but makes me so mad because she hasn't told me and I had to hear it second hand and she knows my struggles and my pain and she is a nurse so thought she was smarter. I am torn between texting her and telling her off or just acting like I don't know anything if/ when she texts or calls me.

    Whoa sharlee, that sounds like a cowardly friend to not tell you. Am I missing something? Your best friend for 10 years is quite pregnant and hasn't told you and she knows you have been trying? That would really upset me. I would think about what you want to do. Don't rush into having a go at her. She will probably have some excuse about good intentions. They never understand how much they hurt us with their good intentions.

    Chiefs girl- I totally imagined you driving around crying :-( the car is sometimes the best place for letting out the tears isn't it. I do heaps of my crying in the car. I wonder if the person stopped next to me can see the tears ********* down my face. One time I was nearly hysterical (last mc) but afterwards I felt much better. I was actually outside my dogs daycare in the car park sobbing and had to go in and pick him up. Luckily my dog can only make me feel happy. I hope you have lots of things to lighten your day. Thinking of you.

    For me, the last two cycles I have take it, for immune disorder etc. Last cycle I had bio chemical pregnancy. This cycle I'm now 8 weeks pregnant.
    Who knows if that was the difference. But so worth if it can get us a sticky BFP.

    Also I'd like to say thank for to everyone for sharing their journeys. You have helped me find FS who has a clue, and will treat accordingly.

    Hi Frances the cat
