Love that word ...lurking I too am guilty of that. I've messaged a couple of lovely ladies on here over the past 6 months who have helped me feel more calm about the process.
I've had confirmation that CFC have received my deposit but no response from my co-ordinator to say what happens next. Was hoping for early July to fit in with my planned leave but the later it takes to confirm everything it looks like it might push out to August. Trying to stay unconcerned by the no contact is proving to be difficult - I'm a self-confessed control freak.
I think I need a new hobby to keep my mind off of it all
Hi HB13, I'm trying not to be impatient but I'm still checking my emails on my phone every 30 mins. I'm on nightshift at the moment and it's quiet so I don't have anything to distract me. I just wish they would email me with an update. Even if it's just to say thankyou for your hard earned money, we've started the process. So far hearing nothing is just painful and scary. Explaining to my DP that I've sent off the money but don't have a clue as to what is happening right now is not going down so well. Hard to keep someone else calm about it when I'm unsure myself. Hopefully our time in SA will line up and we can meet up.
I would email your agency and get them on to it too, to ensure you get it. As they work with the ladies at the clinic all the time they often have more success at getting the clinic to reply.
If all else fails I found including the doctor, agency contact and nurse coordinator on EVERY email. I found the dr was often the first to reply and obviously would ruffle feathers.
(I'm guessing it may depend on which agency you are working with, ours was very proactive)
@ECM1981 Did you have any luck investigating the girls suggestions of Zoladex or Triptorelin at $40 each? I'm guessing both are effective for one month? Can you inject either of them yourself? Did any of the girls that used these meds get the same side-effects as being on Synarel?
I find it fascinating there's now an option at a fraction of the price of Synarel and so much more convenient too!
@arall I bought my ED items specific to her profile, her favorite perfume etc. I also bought her son a pressie from my home city. I checked this was ok first. I don't think the gift needs to be expensive, just come from the heart. Just remember not to put anything identifying in your thank-you card.
Synarel has an indication for endometriosis & IVF or ART as PBS calls it. It requires an authority to get it for $38.30.
Synarel & Zoladex have very similar side effects because they essentially turn your oestrogen production off. So hot flashes, headaches, mood swing, appetite increase/decrease, nausea & migraine can be pretty standard,
Got a reply from Jenny at CFC today. My request for early July is happening. Looks like we'll be in SA on June 29th for my lining scan. Starting to feel real now. Any tips on when I should book some flights and accommodation? Wow this is actually happening
