The scans and blood tests can be done in Geelong. The nurses will be in touch after the scan as to how things are/ when your egg pick up will be. That was when I was transferred to a Melbourne nurse.
    I am 37, we had 6 embryos tested this cycle - 3 normal and 1 is frozen but untested. 2 abnormal and discarded.
    Of our 5 embryos last cycle with no PGD testing, 2 miscarriages at around 6 weeks.
    How are you @Spec, @rhee1980 @kizmetzing?
    I am hoping to transfer late October early November depending on AF. I am thinking if I can arrange transfer in Melbourne I will do it there (2.5 hr drive for us). I am thinking if the embryos are in Melbourne why risk transporting them? And no doubt it will cost!
    Hi thanks for asking! I'm about 2-3dpo, could only DTD up to Wed night then DS and DP got gastro, so hopefully that was enough! Naturopath gave me some stronger herbals to hopefully 'seal the deal'. If not I see Prue on the 20th which is perfect timing as it'll be about CD1 so we can get started on treatment straight away (I'm imagining she'll suggest clomid or femara as a first option).
    Getting close to transfer for you! So excited for you, hoping the pgd was the last piece of the puzzle.

    @sunny79 doing the transfer there would make sense in more ways than one. Hopefully you can arrange that. If not I'm sure they will take a lot of care transporting your embabies. @rhee1980 the timing sounds pretty good so you definitely have a chance. Hope your family has kicked the nasty bug. Fingers crossed for you!

    Thanks @sunny79. I find your info really helpful. I feel like the IVF appointments are a bit confusing as to when and with who. I'm sure it will become clearer after seeing Moses and then IVF nurse appointment. I am at least a few weeks of starting the injections I'd say. Maybe more as my cycles haven't returned to normal yet after last miscarriage which was 7 weeks ago. Takes my body a while to sort itself out. Fingers are crossed for your transfer.

    Hi Girls,
    @sunny79 can I ask you a question about costs? I'm assuming you've had to pay for the IVF costs already and:
    1. At what point did you have to pay the PGS costs?
    2. Do you also need to pay extra for the first FET as well?
    3. And we don't have private health cover for IVF so will need to pay the day stay surgery in full. Any idea what that was + anethesist in Melb?
    I know it's going to cost an arm and a leg but we are prepared for that just to give it a go. Otherwise we'll always wonder. Just trying to budget. Thanks

    @Blue246
    Good question about costs. I try not to add it up to a final total so I will give you a rough idea!
    The pgd/pgs is billed after the embryos are tested, depends on how many they test. Was about $800 per embryo.
    The epu is around $11,000 + meds + day stay + anaesthetist. Day procedure at hawthorn for hubby (who has private health but not for testicular biopsy) was $660. Anaesthetist still hasn't sent a bill - yet!
    Last cycle after my fresh transfer was cancelled due to OHSS - fet was the same price, no discount. Close to $4,000 per transfer +meds. My understanding is that after pgd there is no discount for the first fet.
    Hope this is relatively accurate and not too scary.!
    As for me - still waiting. Have appointment with Kate 27th October - not sure if AF will hold out until then. If not I might just start my progynova and call the nurses to see if organising a short notice transfer in Melbourne is possible.

    @Blue246 - Not that I've done the day stay in Melbourne, but I did at Geelong Private. Once for an EPU and once for a DnC. The EPU was about $1100 and the DNC was $850. You'd think they were being nice giving me a discounted rate for a DnC right, you know, since I was miscarrying and all...nope. I had the DnC in March and the following Christmas they sent me a bill, saying "Sorry, we undercharged you for that DnC." $387 a week before Christmas. No guessing my response to that.....I rang and told them EXACTLY my feelings on that. Needless to say, I didn't have to pay it and never heard from them again. I was actually super angry at them on behalf of all the people they probably do that to who wouldn't stand up for themselves and would just pay that bill!

    The anaesthetist was always around $300-$400. Usually payable prior to the procedure.

    @rhee1980 - that's brilliant! Congratulations!

    @kizmetzing - that sucks! I'm glad you stuck up for yourself. I had 4 DnC's at Geelong Hospital and all free cos public system and all successful experiences. Definitely recommend going public for that if any of us are unlucky enough to need to do that again. Hopefully not.

    @sunny79 - I had my nurses appointment today and all of what you said was confirmed with them. However the '1st frozen embryo transfer after all frozen or pgd' is only $314.30 out of pocket instead of $1997.05. Check what they charged you last time and this time.

    As for me, everything is in place and just waiting to start now.

    Hi everyone,
    Just wanted to check in and see how everyone is travelling. It's been a while so I've completely lost track of where everyone is in their treatments and pregnancy.
    Hope you're all well xx

    Hi Girls,
    I've been stimming and had ultrasound today. I had one at 18mm, 4 at 17mm, 6 at 15mm and a bunch at 13mm or 14mm. I've been advised to stop FSH and trigger at midnight ready for EC in Melb on Friday. I'm a bit nervy that the 15's won't catch up before ovulation but I guess the experts know what they are doing!
