@Tahli thinking of you and hope you are managing ok.
Summer, it is a hard road alright. My brother said to me (just before we decided on CT) that we should keep going until we 'couldn't get' any more money. He meant beg, borrow or steal, whatever it takes, because no matter how much, or what it takes to get that money, it is worth it. He has a 4 and 5 year old and has always said that no matter how much it ended up costing us, its worth every cent. Easy for him to say I guess when he has money coming out of every orifice, but I got his point. (Still owe him $18000 for the failed first donor cycles btw - god knows when or if I can pay that back)
Yes DP and I were over the moon after that scare from that half arsed ultrasound last week. At 10.5 weeks, with two babies that have been perfectly on schedule the entire time, I'm comfortable. His father keeps saying we shouldnt rest easy until 14 weeks because his GF had a miscarriage at 14 weeks (decades ago) but FFS man, stop raining on my parade !
And for the record, not only am I incredibly peeved about the crap service I got last week, but my Dr who was off delivering a baby was then going to ring me either on the weekend or Monday to answer the rest of my questions. Well.... do you think I got a phone call ?? Yet again, I just feel like a dollar sign. The only really good service I have ever gotten was from the clinic in Cape Town. Thank god for them and their recommendations or I wouldn't be UTD right now.
@emski72 Do you know if I can get 5-MTHR (the active form of folic acid) from any where in Melbourne, even if it's more costly than Iherb? It's just to get started before an Iherb delivery arrives. Is there an Aussie brand that does it?
I've started very very lightly spotting old blood today so at least I know my body is responding to coming off the POI.
I'm planning to. It's really bothering me that right now I feel like I have no medical support. My old FS is retired, I can't even get a weaning-off plan from this lot, my GP can't help, DP just gets a blank look on his face (lol) and I'm not seeing the hospital for another 3 weeks. I've had so many different opinions on the drugs and when I should have started/stopped them from all the Dr's I've seen that I don't know if I'm Arthur or Martha. If I wasn't on this forum I'd be tearing my hair out with the stress and the uncertainty.
I think it's prescription only... not too sure - if you're anywhere near Malvern East, I have some in the cupboard I can give you a few to get you through - iherb only takes about 6 days though so they are pretty quick.
I have this one http://www.iherb.com/Life-Extension-...ued-Item/18245
