    I have been reading through the SA egg donation thread. Wow! Lots of information there. I am actually feeling quite relaxed about our next own egg IVF round. I know it's not the end of our journey now. if it doesn't work we have SA as a back up. We had a post surgery appointment at Concord hospital today and went to IKEA for a wander. DH and I paused at the kids furniture section but didn't linger too long. Maybe next year we will be looking for real.

    Oh I loved the anaesthetic. My favourite part of IVF..hehe. I just woke up feeling so relaxed. Like I'd slept for 24 hours...brilliant stuff!

    I was at a low cost clinic for my first 5 cycles. After the first cycle of the year an ivf cycle was only. 290 oop. If I used lucrin it went up to. 490. They would. It try anything out of the ordinary, you meet with your FS who writes up your protocol, but then you just see nurses, the doctor who does epu is just whomever is on roster, same for et and yes, twilight sedation WAS terrible, I'm looking forward to a ga at the next clinic!

    First appt with Gavin sacks at ivfa tmw. Let's hope he has some ideas!

    I've had 3 GAs and 4 twilights and I'm pretty happy with the twilights. It is cool to just be knocked out but I'd rather save the cash and I really don't find it that uncomfortable. Plus you hear them finding the eggs which is great.

    RPA is $1538 a cycle and they treat ladies over 40. I think I remember reading that they had an age limit but I can't remember what it was. 45 at a guess.
    @Butterfly39 how are you doing?

    @Butterfly39 how are you doing?
    Hi, I'm recovering from some kind of Ebola/cholera like gastro I picked up from a patient. It's been a while since I've exploded from both ends like that, lol. I was so sick I couldn't even bubhub, can you imagine? . DH said it was karma for my manflu jokes. Foiled again! Anyway had thought about cycling again straight off the back of that last one which would have made 3 in a row without breaks. Wda is soon off until Oct so after feeling like death warmed up I decided to wait until after he's back instead of squeezing another in.... He said my ovaries might be a bit sh!t anyway after that many egglets ....so I *suppose* will be sensible for once and start up again on the angry spray (synarel) end of sept or thereabouts.....

    In the meantime I'm going snowboarding in a week - might as well seize the day and bust out of this crazy shell of appointments injections and general Ivf fiasco and have a thorough physical/mental/emotional break with DH., maybe work a bit of half pipe again and change my focus up a bit. I'm really looking forward to it, it's going to be great. And of course DH is silently air punching as I'm off the angry spray/hormones for a break. Stocked up on pain killers today for DH - if the 'slip on ice' video wasn't enough try imagining adding a snowboard. Looks cute in the helmet though. Except if he does anything embarrassing, or has a snow tantie, I usually just ride off.

    hope ur all travelling along well

    Yowza, nasty! I've had two cases of gastro this year, plus bronchitis and a mysterious rash. I wonder if it's anything to do with the endless trips to the hospital this year for BT and US.
    I got to the snow last year, my son was 7 months old and we put him in daycare on the mountain (in NZ), it was great. Been toooo long.

    I was going to say, are you sure you didn't contract the manflu?
    Glad to hear you're feeling better and enjoy your break.
