Sunnygirl04 I'll have to remember to get dr m to put that on the referral when I see her this Friday. Good luck with your scan !
Ferngirl congratulations on reaching the 12 week mark and thank you for posting your beautiful ultrasound pics, they made me a bit teary (in a good way) this morning.
JulieMalooley thanks for the spreadsheet - it's a big help as there are a few things on there that I hadn't accounted for... and congratulations on your pregnancy and two healthy heartbeats.
Tahli congratulations on your BFP I saw your HPT pic on the over 40s thread and it is a lovely strong 2nd line for 10.5 dpo... maybe more CFC twinnies on the way?
AFM I had my first appt with a new Obgyn on Friday - she will be administering two rounds of Zoladex for me prior to my de cycle to get my adenomyosis under control before transfer and she mentioned she'd had another patient that had been through CFC and that she had managed to get a BFP first time around second time around it was twins... I'll take all the good news stories I can get...
Take care lovely ladies
MamaKes. I'm a newbie also so I can assure you that If you follow the advise of everyone on here from all previous threads you will have it all sorted. DP and I were going around in circles trying to pick our donor until the girls on here told me to focus on the donor by setting up a spreadsheet and not on the agency. Once we did that we quickly got the list down to 4 than that got reduced again by the donors becoming unavailable so in the end the donor really picked us. We tried to find someone we connected with but unfortunately that didn't happen so we just relied on the criteria list.
I was looking at the donor profiles on all agents you have already been told about and have ended up picking a donor from EDSA and 2nd choice is from gift ov life. Both agents have been helpful but of course I've picked a donor from the most expensive agent out of the group. Hoping this extra cost relates to the care and support they give. Guess I'll find out soon.
Good luck with your journey.
JulieMalooley. After all the support you have given everyone on this forum by sharing your experience, it is great to hear your exciting news. I feel as if I am always posting "thank you" to you and all beautiful ladies on here. And again, thank you for the costing. We booked our dates of treatment for January then I saw how much you paid for flights and realised I needed to change our dates to try and get better flight. I'm already seeing flights for $4500 each which is rediculious. So we are looking now to move to feb in hope it will be much less. Only if the donor we have finally reserved is avail. If not we will just have to suck up the expense I guess.

Welcome @ caesardust & @Felicity Fox. You both will be hooked within a week of reading this forum. The sharing of experiences on here is magical. Especially for the newbie like us. Good luck to you both.

Just a reminder for those that are checking flight prices. Don't do repeated searches for the same flights on the one PC. Both the airlines and the flight aggregators (travel agents, Best flights, etc) leave cookies on your PC and the next time you return to the search, it will start eliminating the cheapest available fares so you only see more expensive ones and book them in a panic. If you are PC savvy, clear your cookies before any flight search or just do the searches on various different equipment eg at work, phone, ipad, laptop, DH's equipment etc.
Having said that dec & Jan are peak periods so you are unlikely to get a cheap flight then. Check out say Qantas website for fares and it will clearly show you the different periods then it may be possible to move your travel date a day or 2 into at least shoulder periods and save !
FYI Qantas currently have a sale (ending 11/11) on SA flights for $1398 Sydney to Jo'Burg for flights 22/1/16 to 18/3/16. A connecting flight between Jo'burg and CT is cheap and easy using Mango, BA, SAA.
Good luck everyone.
