    Hey Butterfly - Jesus that's a lot if crappy news for one week!
    Good luck for the interviews... and the cats. 🐱hehe.
    Re: donors... Mine was 22 and had a 8 month old baby but had not donated before.
    I guess it's a bit catch 22 though as they don't know how they will respond to meds if they haven't donated before so are fairly conservative in their approach.
    We got 12 mature eggs, 6 fertilised, 2 transferred, two frozen this seems to be a fairly standard outcome in SA.
    MrsErinR had a brilliant result with her donor.

    Butterfly hi there! You've got a lot going on. And you sound amazingly positive. Good on you! I'm amazed you can concentrate on job interviews straight after ivf, Hope you ace them! Refresh my memory, are you a nicu nurse?
    It's encouraging that the frosties were trisomies etc rather than complex abnormal. I know it's a bizarre way of thinking but - trisomies contain only one chromosomal mistake so an embie with no mistakes is still possible. If they were all complex abnormal ie multiple mistakes, it would not bode well for ever getting a normal. Yes it's a bugger to go through CGH only to get that random unknown. As I said in my rant earlier, someone around here has to get lucky soon!

    Keep us updated on your DE decision and your travel plans. I'm off on a less exotic holiday than Africa but super excited about it. Byron Bay here we come.

    Leyshoja, hoping you're not too hungover at your transfer lol!

    Petal40, I'm so sorry, that's horrible news. I hope that you can take time to grieve. But I'm also glad you have a plan for the next one and that could be the one. It's hopeful that you got pregnant, we just need one to stick.

    Haha no hangover, I always wonder what effect alcohol has on your lining. If it gets into your blood****** then it must get into pretty much every cell in your body right ?? Who knows...
    Regarding donors, I was pretty stressed when I found out mine (who is 34) had donated once before, got only 3 eggs, and had NO pregnancy resulting from it !! We only got 5 but at least I also got 5 embies from it. They only put her on 125 of Gonal I believe. I couldn't believe they didn't drug the hell out of her knowing the low pickup. Ah well, if it's not successful I'll only have to give them another $18,500 for a donor cycle ( and that was AFTER a $3000 discount !). Wouldn't that be a shame for them..
    Although I definitely won't be doing it again. I'll be too old after another 4 FETs.

    About 8 weeks from when you choose your donor (if she is available at the time you want) I estimated we spent about $14k on the whole cycle with flights/accommodation (4 star), meds, spending money in CPT , eating out (well) every night and a bit of sight seeing. If budgeting I reckon you could do it for $11k.

    Here's hoping you don't need it anyway though right? Are you using reverse psychology on yourself like I do. Even while in Cape Town I was planning my return trip (driving by a cottage to see if it was safe for me to stay on my own etc.) because I was sure it wouldn't have worked!
