    @midnite01 I don't think you can arrange for a copy to be sent to you directly, but your FS must provide you with a copy of any results/records that you request (right to information). Our FS#2 does give us a copy, but I think that's just him.

    @Precious40, how are you today hon?

    Me...I'm trying to figure out how to make a bit of extra spending money. Currently got some of my unwanted goods up on Buy Swap Sell, but need something a little more definite than that.

    An extra $100 a week would make a huge difference to us right now.

    Any ideas?

    Would becoming Thermomix consultant be an option? I don't know what consultants make, but they are very popular.

    I'm down regging ATM, CD1 next week and predict I'll start stimming 25th/26th... Waiting, waiting, but already bloating from tears of satan.

    I've got Making of a Murderer on the list, but currently we are powering through Masters of Sex, which I'd also recommend (I'm not finding it IVF challenging).

    Congratulations!!!! That is super awesome. I know you still have a long way to go, but that is a great start. I read somewhere that 3 PGD is the magic number.

    @Blossom74 - this is probably redundant, but have you checked all your outgoings to see if you can get a better deal on electricity, phone, insurance etc? I know it won't equal $100/week, but every little bit... Plus cash in fly buys. I do that every few years and am amazed at the savings we make.

    What sort of work do you do? What interests you? What quals? (Not to pry - just trying to get ideas). Having no idea about above: Research assistant work can be very flexible. The girls that take bloods at my clinic aren't nurses, so I'm not sure what training you need... or reception - Sat/Sun morning shifts? A few friends have done cleaning too - good workout and potentially under the table. Kitchen work at hospitals/nursing homes? Tutoring. Lollypop lady (around kids though). Home cooked meals - some people pay somebody to do fresh cooking for them. Electoral commission will be wanting staff for polling booths with election later this year. Also census year, although ABS is trying to go digital (they'd still be a lot of work though with non-computer savvy residents).

    Pet care suggestion was a great one too as that seems to be a booming industry.

    Girls any idea what kind of FET is done most often? Ie unmedicated, medicated.. I've got no clue about this side of things. I feel like after all the crapola u have to do for a stim cycle, that doing nothing except the support drugs like oestrogen, pred, clexane & aspirin seems strange...

    do they just watch ur body, & do scans, looking at what happenin naturally and transfer after they think you've ovulated? But not actually controlling the ovulation at all? How can they be sure that they get the timing right? It's freaking me out thinking about it!

    I can feel my anxiety levels starting to really sky rocket this week.. I know I should be excited about this upcoming FET but I'm not. I'm petrified. Bcos questions keep popping into my head about things I have no control over or that I don't know the answers to. And I keep wondering have I've missed something.. Is something else I should have done.. I feel like I'm going thru the motions already knowing it won't work! So negative. Does everyone feel like this before a transfer? I don't want to say any of this to DP bcos I don't wanna make him as anxious as I'm becoming.

    Thank god my mum is back from London next week. I can lose my shiz with her ������
    My doc would have preferred me to do a natural FET (with a natural ovulation) but my cycles were too long and erratic to monitor.

    So with my first two FET's I took the estrogen tablets and around day 14, I think, they measured my lining with a scan. Then they start you on progesterone pessarries around day 21 and you have a blood test before transfer to make sure your levels are high enough. No ovulation tracked or anything. I think if you achieve a pregnancy then the tablets are taken for a fair while after that.

    With the stimulated FET I had to inject puregon and did regular scans to measure the lead follicle. My dose was increased until I had a lead follicle then was triggered with ovadril (around day 23 it may have been, quite a long time) then I had two booster shots of ovadrel during the TWW, no other support meds other than the immune ones.

    Hope that helps.
