    Do any of you ladies get to the stage where you are over ivf and almost cant be bothered anymore? Maybe thats why im seriously considering the ed cycle overseas.

    Default IVF over 40 #22

The price is 26000 Aus $ but the donors are coming to Australia which means any frozen embryos stay and can be transferred in Aus. I have to speak to my clinic to get further info next week. I am thinking of using my super to pay for it as I am broke now as well. It is a hard call to make but if I can access my super for it then I will do it now while I can still have babies or try to have them with the help of science and I will worry about the super situation and the fact that I spent it all when I am 100 and they allow me to have it. AFM my 8 week scan yesterday showed an empty sack or a blighted ovum I think they call it. I was too upset to call my clinic yesterday and discuss it so I just stopped my meds last night and am hoping to bleed soon by myself but am not feeling it. In fact my b.oobs hurt big time today and I am starting to think I might need to ask about them about a d and c or something to help move things along before we go away for our Christmas holiday.
    I'm so sorry to hear that @Maxwellsmum - good idea to cut the meds yourself and get on with it. It's devastating when you get that far along then get the shock bad news you poor thing. I will send you a copy of the message I sent to Fudge. @midnite01 I only reached that point when I realised that the chances of falling pregnant naturally were about the same as doing an IVF cycle. At that point I was wasting money trying to use my OE. But yep it's a massive mental drain too.

    Thank you for sending it through to me. Yes agreed mentally and physically IVF is draining. I definately could not stim again. Sometimes I want to give up and stop but then I want to be a mum more......I am hoping DE is the key for us. We used donor sperm the last three transfers cause my husbands sperm was bad and we thought it might have helped but now it is pointing at me and my ****ty eggs been a problem as well.

    Don't worry, most of us know 'that' feeling. Age is NOT my friend.

    @midnite01 I was totally over IVF after my 5th cycle. I wanted a THB, no more waiting for scans, or 5 day reports or the 2WW only to get another BFN or chemical. I looked at DE in SA but DH said no to that. The US was expensive (although I found a clinic with a 90% success rate with donor embryo's) so we made that our plan B. We went into our last cycle feeling pretty pessimistic and I was a wreck before EPU. I even told DH I wanted to cancel. I guess it just goes to show that emotional state makes no difference to success.



    As a post script I want to mention that our nuchal scan came back as high risk. I see my OB next week to determine what our next step is. I won't risk losing one or both with amniocentesis so I think it will be NIPT.

    Hi ladies I'm still reading along.

    Thanks for the roll call @Bongley. I'm due 13 April with my princess.

    I did 9 oe stims the last four of which we banked for pgd which all came back abnormal. That was enough for me to decide on de. My dh chose the us clinic as my fs works with them and he thought it would be the easiest for me. We used our line of credit with the mortgage to pay for it as it was $$$$$$$.😜 dh chose that clinic over other overseas ones as they seemed to have a good success rate (80%) and must stim harder as their donors produce more eggs/embryos. We wanted the possibility of a same donor sibling in the future- we ended up with a rugby team, incl a cpl on the bench, in the freezer! When we go back for a fet I will just go thru my gp.

    Re the discussion on pregnancy multi' so got one from Iherb that has the same ingredients as elevit but was only about $18 a btl.
    @faithandhopellove I'm sorry your nuchal came back high risk. Look into which nipt you do as not all work with twins, sending you lots of hugs, it must be so stressful.
    @Tahli I've got everything crossed for you!

    Hi to everyone else 🤗

    @midnite01 Unfortunately no squinter in sight. Just a stark white negative at exactly 10dpo. And yep, like you, totally over it.
