    You and me both hon I actually hold more faith in frozen emby transfers than fresh. I suppose that's only natural for me though as my fresh transfer didn't stick and my frozen one did. Well, for a while, anyway.

    I did Clexane and Prednisolone for a while before my transfer. I can't remember exactly how long but I could look it up for you tomorrow if you like. I never did intralipids because my FS is not a fan of them.

    My FS prefers a natural approach, so whilst I did take a low dose Clomid for 5 days to ensure I made follies, I was not given a trigger to induce ovulation. Instead, I did LH tests and once I saw my surge I called in and had the transfer the next day.

    Other than that all I took was Megafol and a good pregnancy multivitamin.

    I'm really glad you dropped in this evening love. It sounds like you are making plans and in my book plans = hope for the future. Hugs for you

We have questioned it and the clinic says that's how the billing works?
    Is this right?

    I suppose it depends on who you're with hon. My first cycle we got one egg but it failed to fertilise. We were refunded all of our OOP cycle costs with the exception of the day surgery fees, anaesthetist etc. That would be at the discretion of your clinic though. I don't believe there are any rules about having to refund dud cycles. Well, I've not heard of any, anyway. Perhaps others might be able to chime in....

    @MissDa i understand if you dont get to transfer you would pay the full amount minus transfer fee. I think a couple of ladies referred to pulling the pin before epu if low no of follies then theres only a small amount to pay. Grrrh it can all be so confusing.

    Again, that would depend on the clinic's discretion. My FS said I could cancel a cycle if I didn't have enough follies and there would be no charge to me, except for having to buy the drugs again for the following month. It seems it really pays to shop around with clinics!

    Yes, they were poor with emotional support but when it comes to finances they have been AMAZING. I am very glad I stayed with them

    Finally back online after tablet decided to malfunction big time. Had to reset the whole thing. Lost all my passwords but luckily most apps have a "forgot your password?" Email link.

    Firstly regarding having an end in mind for TTC. We definitely had one with regard to OE. 6 cycles is what we decided before we started but the reality was I was emotionally done by number 5. It was the FS who decided we should go through more treatment for adeno/ endo and try again. DH agreed because he had 6 stuck in his head and I went along because I was all out of energy to voice my opposition. Anyhow what I am really trying to say is that the end point is a moveable goal post. You can plan for where you think it will be but it isn't until you get there that you know this is it. My last cycle cost me a piece of my sanity but it did get me my BFP.

    With regard to Aus adoption we ruled it out early on as the number of babies put up for adoption is so low that we felt our chances of being chosen were slim. DH has had significant health issues that might put people off choosing us.
    I know of someone who went for O/S adoption and waited 5 years for their bub but I am sure they would say it was worth the wait. I also know of a couple who have long term custody of a foster bub. Not the same as adoption I know but they get to keep him until he's finished high school. That was our plan C if OE and DE failed. Oh and you get paid for taking on foster bub's. A great option (I thought) when we had gone through all our money on IVF.

    Lastly our harmony test came back ok. I am so bl@@dy relieved but also in a state of shock as I had convinced myself that it was abnormal (the midwife was shocked too. I could tell she thought it was going to to be bad news). Having spent the last week beating myself up for demanding they put the lower quality embie in with the more advanced one... then rehearsing in my head how I would explain it to family and friends (different slants depending on how I thought they would cope with the news) I ended up with itching all over (no physical cause -rash, virus, bites etc) seems it was worrying that caused it. DH was calm but since we got the ok he randomly pops out with phrases like "The babies are ok, they're ok". Wish I could have a glass of champers to celebrate.
