Earlier? I hadn't considered that. I gave them my preferred dates in a previous email with regards to my annual leave from work. Earlier for me is not an option unless she's talking a week, which I'm pretty sure she's not. I guess I'll find out tomorrow when she replies.
Has this girl donated before/is she a proven donor or is she unproven? The good thing is at least you will see how she responds to donating. Of course if she doesnt donate well it wont put much confidence in to you, but on the flip side sometime the first donation is a bit or trial and error to see how women respond. That what they told me personally when i was using my own eggs. Im wondering were you stand in regards to requesting her first and then having someone else jump in front, it would be different if you had more time to play with. I would be annoyed too.
It will be very cold in the water but i recommend doing the shark cage diving!! My hubby and i did it first time we went over and then he did it again 2nd time which was in July. He said it was way colder but the water was much clearer. Also a safari is a must if you have the funds. I like staying around the V and A waterfront or close to it, sea point or green point because its convenient for those days you dont want to drive too far. You can do robben island, table mountain, botanic gardens, camps bay, aquarium, great markets all near the v&a. Its got a great vibe about it. The city center isnt too far away. The red tour bus was a great way to tour around all the must see parts. We did a great wine tour also out to stellenbosch. There is heaps to do!! We did our overnight safari inbetween egg retreival and day 5 transfer and we let CFC know where we were going incase they needed us to come back earlier. All our tours etc were easily arranged from our hotel reception once we got there. Feel free to PM anytime. Writting down all the things to do is getting me excited. Hope you like eating because the food is great! Especially the meat, dh is very excited about having a steak at balthazaar! I hope it all falls into place for you ☺
I booked Edinburugh Military Tattoo first then all the flights, we land in Cape Town 15th July we leave for London on the 16th August we have 5-6 weeks there then America. I had been up front with the clinic and agencies about travel plans and any changes to that because its such a big holiday. Originally we where going to London first to coincide with a donors availability in September/Oct but that put the flight costs way to high.
My donor is being locked in and its all systems go. I am staying in a hotel at Newlands it looks pretty central to the V&A and the clinic and having the hire car will be great for getting around. I have written down over a page of things from this thread to do so I shall see if I can scan it in or I'll put in word and copy and paste so everyone that's going can have a look.
I'm so excited with my donor and my friends and family are thrilled, my mum if she was alive would have loved the pictures also like my aunties they are amazed that someone on the other side of the world looks like my nan and all of us kids.
Congratulations to everyone on the start of a thrilling ride.
