    Don't forget your donor will cost you around $1300 from memory

    I'm trying not to be toooo type A throughout this journey but it's a challenge :-)

    We haven't heard anything. I was just re-reading the treatment plan they sent us and only just worked out what the donor is up to! In my world it's all about us ... all the organising that has to be done to get over there. I guess we have the 'easier' part in the whole grand scheme of things.

    Kay2015 - good luck for your lining scan; remember, half an avocado, an egg and 3-4 Brazil nuts each day if you want to thicken it up a bit.

    AFM - Lining scan on Monday. Yay!

    No holidays here Kay, just a quiet spell I guess, it will amp up as people start getting to Cape Town. Everyone seems to recommend Inverdoorn @Kay2015 for Safari, the recommendation seems to be to go pre transfer as it can be quite a rough ride.

Stupid question, it must be I guess if it's written there.. I can't believe how much cheaper it all is over there??? Geez were getting ripped of in Australia aren't we?? We'll have paid around $10k out of pocket for this last cycle.. And that's WITH a Medicare rebate! And I haven't even gotten the anaesthetist fee yet OR done a transfer.. It's amazing that they can do it all for $6648 in SA.. I'm in shock...
    Although Charlie, in SA that is a HUGE amount of money. We are just lucky due to the currency exchange it is more affordable.

    Ladies, I think we are going to go ahead. I still have a few doubts/worries, but I think the regret if we don't try this will be a bigger deal.

    I have seen a potential donor that I like, but she is 33. Do you ladies think that is too old, or would you say it is fine? She has one child, but no previous donations.

    Very exciting to see so many fo you heading over in August!

    Hi Zara, this might sound blunt but if it were me, I wouldn't go near anyone over 28, especially unproven in that she's never stimmed before and they don't know how she will react/respond.
    You want the best odds possible...
    I found you have to kind of detach with choosing a donor and go with the stats/attributes.

    I'm on my way to SA, hope the planning and travel is going well for all the other August ladies.

    Winter hibernation here perhaps ?

    As for a day trip safari - I highly recommend Inverdoorn. We ended up doing an overnight trip and got a personal interaction with a cheetah as well. For a cat lover like me it was awesome!
