    Imagine that. Years of trying to have one and in one fowl swoop you get 4.

    Carrying twins (at any age) is inherently risky, but DH and I would rather try to mitigate those risks now rather than remain childless for the rest of our lives.

    We've never had a chance to know what raising one child is like, so we won't know the difference, or how hard raising two is. We are a 'take it in our stride' kind of couple, so we are looking forward to meeting our precious little brood.

    Me too. Now. It's finally getting exciting 😄 unfortunately I'm not a taking it in my stride type, but DP is. I've done lots of worry and stressing about EVERYTHING but can now start to move past it with a great morphology scan behind us.

    Just jumping in here from the Czech board, I had twins and had no problems what so ever, carried them to 38 wks and they were 7lb and 7lb 3oz, I realise not everyone is as lucky, but even single pregnancy/births have risks and problems so it's not just a twin pregnancy, I'm going back for a fet in May and will be 49 by then and will be transferring the last 2 and would be happy and blessed to get pregnant with twins again

    Funny thing happened ... Last night I was watching Jamie Oliver on TV and he got some chicken marylands and drizzled some oil on them ... made me go and have a quiet vommie in the loo. DH couldn't believe that just looking at chicken on TV made me sick!!!! So cooking shows are out ... I've lost 5kg since BFP, I'm hoping I can make that back up but watching people cook isn't doing it for me!

    Did/has anyone else dropped weight from their morning sickness?

    Ha jennski, yep just looking made me sick too, bloody steaks did me in, which I normally like med-rare ( though overall didn't have bad morning sickness) I lost 6kg in the first Tri (mostly out of lack of appetite and no alcohol rather than sickness though) and still haven't made it back at 23weeks ( made back 3!)

    I have used EDSA. They seem to have the highest fee which is always just my luck. But I was focused on finding the perfect donor for us so was happy to pay the higher price when we found her. Kinny has stayed in touch with us and even helped with ideas of a gift by calling the donors sister, that I want to take over for her. They were quicker in telling us that our donor had completed her initial testing before CFC did.

    Hi @hopefulmum2016 and good luck. My first piece of advice would be if you don't get success on the first go, do an immune protocol for the second one. Even if you don't have any known issues it will eliminate any unknowns. These should be great quality embies and if you are doing a double transfer your chances are pretty high of getting UTD. So... if it fails, throw the book at it next time. After 17 failed embies, my last two stuck and that was the only cycle I did the prednisone/aspirin/clexane/intralipids on. I know everyone is different and it might not make any difference, but if it doesn't worsen your chances, its worth a try in my opinion.
    Also keep in mind that the stats are somewhere around 60%? of us that go over there end up pregnant with twins lately - really high odds to keep in mind when you are tossing up 1 or 2 embies transferred.

    Hi girls, quick question, I think it was this forum that mentioned travelling donors coming to QLD. My friend is looking into this, do you know if there is a separate forum for this?
    Does anyone know about the FS taking part?
    Just trying to gather info for her.

    PS. Good luck girls going over. You don't go over having 2 embryos put in to expect twins. You put 2 in to give you an extra chance of 1 sticking as we've had so many failures with our own eggs. I had 10 cycles all with 2 embies transferred with no bfps. You'll find in an early SA thread that the chance of twins is only an extra 5% (its not double). The last year has been extraordinary with the number of twin pregnancies, but if you go back previous years it wasn't like this (without addingvthem up it probably was 5% of the bfp's). In saying that I think I would prefer twins than a toddler and a newborn, at least twins are in the same mile stones. Whereas you have a newborn in your arms and another running around causing havoc....I'd rather they did it together.

    Default Re Donors travelling to Brisbane

    Hi Miss Sagi,

    I am new to this forum, planning ED with knowneggdonors.com. I haven't come across a different thread re donors travelling to Brisbane but I am happy to share what I know. The specialist involved is Dr Warren de Ambrosis. We were lucky enough to have an appointment with him yesterday, after a cancellation (my appointment was booked for June!). His colleague Dr Scott Salisbury is helping those that can't get in to see Warren. The donors travel in a small group, and we plan to go ahead with a cycle in early April. There is also a group coming in Feb. Basically we shared some emails with the co-ordinator in SA (Genevieve), then we skyped to ask some more questions. We then selected a donor and have skyped the donor, which went really well.

    I've been feeling pretty comfortable with the process until yesterday. Genevieve quoted me around $13K, excluding my 'personal ivf costs'. Warren said that by the time QFG add in their fees it is going to cost us around $25K. Warren also said that while the Feb group is definitely going ahead there is a questions mark about the March group as QFG wants to be certain that the arrangements are 100% legal and ethical. Now we are wondering whether we should go overseas which Warren says is around half the cost. For me though, I would prefer not to have to travel. We have a three year old, it is hard for me to get time off work and I personally prefer a known donor so that our child can make contact with the donor when they are older if they wish. That's why the knowneggdonors path ticks a lot of boxes for me. Having said that I am open to whatever path opens for us in order to give our daughter a sibling.

    I am keen to share my experience and learn from others as well!
