    Chill out on that flight home Emski!

    leyshoja, Dr W was quite definite to us that we were to ring him - his mobile is on his card - if we had any concerns whatsoever. You need to clarify for your own peace of mind. It's too far to go to have them look at you with surprise when you rock up to Reception.

    AFM - have started trawling through profiles again. Have been advised to not use the same donor, which is a shame because she was a good match, eh @Kay2015 !!!!!, except that I think the party in the Petrie dish turned into an all-in-brawl! There's a lot of short donors, pity I'm tall ....

    Actually, I like being tall, it's a pity they're short!

    excellent Leyshoja, now you will sleep better tonight. Good luck next week.

    Good luck looking for a new donor @Jennski. I actually loved that part! I'm a shorty & my ED is a shorty but my SD1 is almost 6.3'. Oh my!! If bubs took after him I've no idea how I'd fit bubs limbs in my tummy. I'm imagining a baby giraffe right now..how very South African!!
    This is a double post. I remember reading something about this topic ages ago. Can any-one help?
    "I just went to buy compression socks for the CT flights as per CFC's instructions (due to clotting issues). But I got confused. Am I meant to buy the knee high ones or the full length ones. I imagine the long haul flight would be flippin' uncomfortable in full length ones."

    Tahli, I wear those 'Sheer Relief' brand ones (the ones that the flight attendants use) to work everyday in the winter, they are warmer and because they are compression they are more smug. I just wore a pair of them with a skirt and ankle boots for the flight. I figured they are compression, and a couple of million flight attendants can't be wrong. They are not expensive either at less than $10 bucks a throw and available at Coles/Woolies. CFC didn't mention compression to me, but I wear them on flights regardless, and always wiggle toes, rock from toes to heels, squeeze calves, thighs and gluts every half hour-ish. I've never had a DVT issue. Those sock things look atrocious, at least the Sheer Relief ones just look like black sheers.

    AFM - I might have found our new donor ... And a 20yr old too, now I look at 27-28yr olds as too old! Haha no wonder my eggs don't work, I've had my 40th so mine are definitely in the nursing home.

    I'm 36 tomorrow. 5 years of trying and 12 miscarriages. No leprechauns for me yet and I'm a little sad about that.

    But I just wanted to say thanks so much to you all for giving me hope again. My donor has just had her first apt and we have tentative dates for dec. So maybe not a leprechaun but a springbok might be in my future.

    Can I ask a question are those percentages of 70% that cfc put forward correct? It just sounds too good to be true.

    @Tahli I'm short @ 5'2 and our donor is 5'4... DH is 6'3.... At 34w4d I can honestly say your description of baby giraffes is very apt 😁
    it definitely does feel like we have two that are all arms and legs!

    Congrats on the tentative dates - always exciting to feel like things are moving along... December will be here before you know it!

    And to answer your question- the percentages quoted by CFC do appear to be fairly right. I think even our own tally on the roll call is fairly close to this too. (Especially when you look at a whole years results - the number has fluctuated through the year. I think the first 3-4 months of this year our roll call actually had our success rates a little higher..)
