Mamakes .. I went through sunshine and they were fantastic rikki was genuine caring and honest and we caught up for a coffee when over there. When I chose my donor I contacted cape to get the stats on them. I went for a young and successful donor as well as more personal and medical criteria. Good luck with choosing. My advice don't ponder too long go for it
If I remember from my experience with Sunshine it was 16500 for a proven donor and 14500 for unproven. They also discounted the second donor I was going to go with in January to about 12500 after our first trip in May failed. Rikki said they knew how expensive the process was so gave us the discount for the second attempt - and she was a proven donor as well.
Sounds about right around $1500
I had great things to say about Dr LeR until today. But now his status has been further upgraded after my first u/s that yielded 2 sacs, with 2 babes and 2 heartbeats. Needlesstosay, my DP and I are over the moon and highly recommend him!
@lolly: I too was taking Gestone (have absolutely hated it!) and shortly after receiving confirmation of my BFP, and two successively increasing HCG counts, my Gestone was reduced to every other day, augmented by Prometrium pill balls taken vaginally (an alt form of Progesterone). I'm thrilled to report that I have 5 Gestone shots remaining and then will continue with the Prometrium until end of week 12. I used Crinone during my first ED cycle and found it messy, but certainly anything is better than the Gestone. Best of luck!
