@Caesardust obviously you can cut out a fair bit of that. The garmin for example I think cost around $300, which was ridiculous, the shark dive, safari, cheaper accomm, I wouldnt spend the money on an embryoscope again.... If at day 5 you have blasts, that is good enough for me. I loved being able to watch it, but the two identified as the best didnt stick anyway so who knows.
$ 1,618.00 donor $ 6 ,670.00 CFC $ 150.00 drugs $ 460.00 embryoscope $ 450.00 freeze $ 3,683.00 flights $ 99.00 insurance $ 2,270.00 accom $ 535.00 safari $ 550.00 shark dive $ 907.00 car/garmin $ 1,550.00 spending $ 18,942.00 TOTAL

Caesardust, good luck with your investigations, you might try read through these threads as they answer most initial questions ( well it did for me ) it can take a quite though !
I reckon we will be due around the same time if I only get to 37 weeks with twins!

Hi @JulieMalooley I have decided not to do a blood test diagnostic (Harmony etc) due to twins as well. I did the blood test to go with the NT scan this morning and have the scan in a few days. Will be interesting to see how they go with getting images with two in there.
Quick tip for the NT scan (something I didn't know until recently) is not everyone gets a Medicare rebate. There are specific criteria; assisted reproduction is one, high risk (twins) is another. But your OB has to note it on the referral for the scanning place to apply the rebate, you can't just ask for it.
We are planning for delivery at 37 weeks as well but I know the twins can't read a calendar so they may have other ideas.

Sunny, I only had the harmony test because the nuchal fold on one of the twins was a little thick. Don't forget the blood tests will be higher than standard due to double the amount of hormones.
