    It's so strange the way the world works! I've heard of so many instances where girls who love kids and couldn't wait to be mums get dealt the hardest cards.
    Growing up, I was always the one playing with the kids in the family and I just loved it. I also had countless dolls, which it played with until high school and loved being a mum to them. My relatives always said how sad it was when they found out about our issues since they thought it was me who should be the one to have a whole tribe of kids. The only other one they've said that to was my mums cousin, who of course was the only other one in my family who had needed Ivf. She used to jump at the chance to change our nappies and bath us growing up and put ribbons in our hair. She also married a man with MFI and had to do many transfers to get their daughter.

    Now that I have my daughter, I spend so much time playing silly little games with her. Whenever people see me with her, they say how they bet this is all I do all day
    I hear so many people who say things like how they like going to work as it gives them time away from the kids and how actual work is easier than being a housewife as gives you a break and adult conversation. I've been back at work 2 days a week, these past few months while my parents are available to watch her and I go to work and smile on the outside but on the inside I'm counting down the hours til I get to see my baby again and miss her like crazy! Sometimes I literally dream of walking out of there so I can stay at home forever and I don't even hate my job. I just hate leaving her. It's only temporary though as once #2 comes along I plan to have a lot longer off and just working a bit now to set us up better for that.

    @Apples1234 ohhh my goodness that's amazing. My clinic charges $8600 for an icsi cycle and then $2500 for frozen. I was so worried if these embryos didn't work out that we'd never have children.
    @Annerley that is so beautiful. ♡ I would love to be a stay at home mummy and have a Family Daycare practice so I can be at home all day taking care of my babies.
    I think I'll be the same. I don't get it when parents say they want to get away from their kids.

    @Apples1234 I think so! I live in QLD.
    Up until last week I didn't know there were other (cheaper) clinics in Brisbane. 😶

    @mrsthomo if that is your out of pocket cost that's very very high!! I know Westmead in Sydney costs about $800!! I didn't know there were cheaper either til I got in here. Our first two cycles were with a different clinic and cost us around $7000 each. Needless to say we are in a lot of debt and no baby yet. But now I've done some research I will be going through Flinders hospital IVF in Adelaide which costs about $1800.

    Also something for you to look into - when you reach the safety net with Medicare (ie spend a certain amount on health costs) you start to get a lot more money back from Medicare. It resets in January. Say you do a cycle next year it will take u well over safety net so any further Medicare appointments (including GP or specialists and IVF you can get a LOT more money back - around 80-90% depending on what it is). I'm still researching it but I realised that our specialist appointment costs $200 and I get $190 back from Medicare now.

    Default Starting the TWW

    Hi all,
    I've never actually posted on a forum before so I apoligise if I'm not doing it right but I've just started a two week wait after a double embryo transfer Yesterday and I'm feeling the stress more than usual! I thought I'd look for some TWW buddies for some sanity.

    Hi @katt1011
    I am so excited! I'm absolutely determined for it to work this time. I really want to be pregnant this Christmas. Last Christmas we bought and decorated our first tree together and I said this time next year we will buy a My First Christmas decoration our baby. Oh well... next year!

    I'm sorry you have to wait til the 25th! Are you having a lining scan before hand? I'm not sure when my transfer will be but if I had to guess it might be on the 16th.
    Fingers crossed this is our cycle! x

    @Apples1234 Yes! I couldn't believe how high! My ICSI cycle was pro bono because I had cancer so I didnt know but my FS is great! I'll be sad if we have to change clinics.
    Yes, thats annoying about the safety net, considering it's now November! Wish we'd started earlier but I'm hoping it won't matter.
    Do you know if PHI gap resets in January or if it's every financial year?

    @apples & @Annerley interesting conversation. My son is 8 and I am one of those mums that has said going to work is a break. I say that because being a mum is bloody hard work. Im also a corporate with a strong career, and being a mum is my proudest achievement. I dont judge those that are sahm's. We are all different and we do what works for us in our situation. Diving into my career helped with our years of infertility. Im not giving up and I cannot wait to be at home full time with a baby, but then returning to work once maternity leave ceases.. 😊
