    Luca - I am literally sitting here typing with tears of joy. What wonderful news. Congratulations on your Springbok(s)/Springbokee(s) . I am thrilled for you both. Oh and NOOOOOO wine for you . Xxx

    Title - I was so wanting to post exactly what your DW suggested, but kept it highbrow and hoped that the fool would nonetheless get the message from my 'sometimes nature fails us' comment which was intended to be read with your DW's sentiments in mind. Xx

    RB - how lovely to have celebrated with the bunny curry. We too were thinking about SA this week. It is two years on the 4th of September that we received the wonderful news of our BFP. I still look at our little man every day and still pinch myself. Hope all is well with you all. Xx

    Hope - we did the online International Money Transfer (IMT) via CBA. It was a tad tricky as the banks auto prompt kept on coming up with different details to the 'main' branch SA bank info, but all went through in the end with a similar approx $20 fee. Be sure to keep copies of all the IMT transfer docs and bring them with you. Medfem (clinic in Joburg) were so bloody disorganised they had no record of our payment. It made for a very stressful morning day of donors EPU, with one of the admin staff eventually ringing a friend at the Bank to get confirmation of the money going through!

    Seahorse - best of luck! Can't wait to hear your stories.

    DW's thoughts and feelings:
    One birthday down and one to go. We have had our third bloodtest yesterday but, as its a weekend, wont get result till tomorrow. The second blood test more than doubled up to 555 so the readings are good, but still, we still arent getting our hopes up. Keep trying to convince myself that 'its OK - its a 23 year old egg' but this is around the time I have lost previous embies in our IVF cycles so really waiting till Tuesday week when we have our first scan (and hopefully see a heartbeat).

    When I first got back I was jetlagged and then the jetlag became constant nausea. Now I get very concerned if I DONT feel that little bit of nausea in the back of my throst......convinced I have lost 'them'.

    I am going up to resign from my weekend job today. Can't keep doing two jobs if this pregnancy is to continue....

    .....Reassurance from others who felt like this is welcome! I think I will stress up to week 30, at which time I feel we have the technology to cope with any issues.....

    Luca: Amazing news. I'm so happy for you (just thinking about it makes me feel a little teary).

    Mrs Tittle: It must be an apprehensive time in light of past experiences but keep thinking positive and good luck at your first scan.

    Rainbowchaser: By law, the clinic have to pass on anything about depression as it could be passed on to the baby. I've emailed to find out a bit more if I can but I don't think it's a reason to pull the pin on this donor (hopefully!) Might ask Dr W's opinion (although not sure if he's allowed to say anything).

    Re payment (sorry, can't remember who asked and if I flip back to the previous page, I'll lose this reply..., I paid by a debit card as I liked the ease and speed. (That said, we did have a few issues with getting the payment through to CFC but agency stepped in to help and it got sorted). I paid a 4% surcharge to the agency but no surcharge for the CFC payment (don't know if that's because it was a debit card?)

    Hope everyone's having a good weekend...lovely weather in Melbourne, Spring is definitely on the way.

    Tittles I'm sure everything is just fine - though I know your anxiety well. I lost a little girl at 15 weeks pregnant so spent a lot of the early part of my Cape Town pregnancy worried over everything you could possibly worry about. One day my boobs hurt, the next they didn't. One day I would feel a little off, the next day I felt fine. Tired some days and not others. My second beta didn't double so I freaked about that. I guess what I'm trying to say is that the worry is normal after what we've all been through but I found comfort in reminding myself that I had super young genes on board :-) It got easier after each scan with bub growing well - then the anxiety ramped up towards the end. I felt like I was so close to the finish line but almost expected my joy to be taken away from me as it had before. IVF plays with your head like nothing else I know. It sounds silly but I had a little mantra I used to say every morning when I would rub my belly "happy healthy baby". I also used to try and visualise the happy end goal. I'll keep everything crossed for you, as I do for everyone on this thread. Coming out the other side and having my beautiful son, doesn't mean you forget the heartache of others still on the journey :-) Happy healthy baby vibes to you all xxx

    Thanks Patsy. I was just reading back and see that your donor had two recent episodes of mild depression. To be honest, I wouldn't worry about that too much. Two recent episodes may suggest a particular trigger or loss that has prompted it, rather than cyclic episodes of depression that are more biologically defined. The DSM which is the "manual" for diagnosis keeps changing and the parameters are so narrow now I think most of us would meet the criteria at some stage (particularly after ivf!!!) I would also be heartened by the fact she was honest about it. :-) I hope the Clinic can reassure you with what they know

    Hi Tittle - I had a relatively easy first trimestor, then halfway through the second came the vomiting .... every case is different - just ride it as best you can - your egg is healthy - you'll be fine

    Luca - what can I say -
