I figure the timing might work out well anyway, Im assuming it will take some time to find a donor and then if Im that impatient after that we go through genea instead of waiting out the 3 month quarantine period (more friggin waiting!!) at RPA. Thanks for mentioning it tho, Im a pretty patient person by nature but this sh!t has pushed me to my limits! Luckily i have my dream job and can immerse myself in all things creative. If i was still back in that old job Id be close to totally insane by now!!!

    just wish we could have a surprise natural pg and forgo all this other thinking

    good news is that i weighed myself yesterday and haven't gained nor lost any weight after the xmas/new year silly season. I was expecting to have gained some so was a nice surprise. Next goal to have lost as much as I can by my 42nd bday at end of Feb. Ive got 8 kgs to lose to put me in the ideal weight category. It'd be awesome to have achieved that by april for the cycle too.

    ugh.
    Right you are Luv!!!

    and prayers being sent you'll get accross the line on your next Cycle or naturally!!! You never know your luck Luv, you really don't!!!

    P.S...I stacked on over a 1.5 kg's getting too much into the "xmas spirit"!!! Time to be a good girl again (how boring!!) now...until Easter that is!!!

    I see Coles/Woolies have wasted no time in getting the Hot Cross Buns on the shelf as soon as they'd packed up the Xmas sh!t!!! FFS's already people!!!!!

    @Tahli you need to go to laverty pathology centers to get dr m tests done. Specifically the surface markers, no one else knows how to do it ( I went to a Douglas Hanley moir and they had to send the blood to laverty).

    I just googled and they are only in act and NSW. Maybe call Gwyneth and ask her what labs dr m uses interstate?

    Thanks heaps @BlondeinBrisvegas. All of that info is incredibly helpful. I read an old thread months ago and noticed that was your old job!
    I've just been checking out Peregian/Sunshine/Noosa accom options for next week. Ouch! Super pricey!! When I usually stay up in Peregian I rent a big old beach house and only pay $550 for the whole week but naturally enough, being school holidays, it's booked. @Chiefsgirl Thanks as always! You've been such a big help with guiding me re Dr M. When he was on the phone he specifically mentioned Melbourne Pathology so I rang them yesterday and asked if I needed to do any special prep for having the tests done and read out which ones they were. He looked them up in his book and said no special prep but they would take over a week to come back. Dr M said 2-3 wks for the results.
    He requested surface markers 56, 57, 8, 4, 25, 19, 200...no idea what any of them are of course!

    @BlondeinBrisvegas I know and i would like to know who has ever bought hot cross buns in january??!! the thing is they wouldnt do it every year if they didn't sell. FFS people alright!

    I'm very experienced at "boring" ...every january I start saying to people we won't be going out at night as we're avoiding alcohol. what a drag!

    @Petal,I have belly envy! What a beautiful bump, in contrast with my white squishy too-many-donuts empty belly

    @midnite, I am cycling from 25/01 so we're gonna be pretty close love

    @BIB, I saw the Hot Cross Buns today too. There is no stopping the big guns.

    @tuxcat, I have no idea who is eating the HCB's so early in the year. That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

    Me too, don't worry. I have an extra layer all over that was not there prior to ivf and especially prednisone. I've just today developed swollen legs and feet ! With all my a55-grape action I haven't done any exercise at all since Friday or Saturday last week so I've just now broken out a little sweat doing a bit off hill climbing on the treadmill. Its far too hot to walk outside today so I'll just squeeze in a couple of 15 minute exercise breaks while I'm working. I think if I'm starting to swell already I really better get back into it. Ugh I hate exercise, but feel so good after I've done it. Ah well. I'll be thankful after bubs are out and I'm not 15 kg heavier than I should be I suppose.. groannnn.

    @Tahli they are the cd cell markers and give ratios like cd56/cd8 etc. essentially the good and bad nk cell stuff.
