    Girls don't stress about booking flights and accomm. I stressed and carried on with our first try and got nowhere, a big fat BFN. Our 2nd try I had a melancholic 'see what happens' nonchalance about it all, and it worked - I am 6mths pregnant with twins.


    You probably won't get your plan until a couple of weeks out. We got our confirmed treatment plan on 30 Oct and flew into CT on 14 Nov.


    We had only one weekend where we could be in CT for our 2nd try, which gave us a 7 week window, go to whoa, to cycle. Luckily DH left a sample with CFC on our 1st visit, so we could use that instead of physically being there on EPU day. I did my lining scan here and sent it to CFC. We flew in on Saturday morning in case they needed a 3dt (and didn't) went back in on the Monday for 5dt, flew out 6am Tuesday morning. CFC were very accommodating and worked it in around our EDs uni exams and all.


    This may be the 1st time you're doing a cycle, but relax, CFC do hundreds in any one week. They will guide you. Give them a firm date you want/need to be in CT for your 5dt and they will work backwards from there.


    Once you get your plan, just jump onto AirBnB and scope out some cheap accomm. They have ones that are 'instant buy', pick one of those and you are done. We got a lovely apartment in the city for $40AU a night, and a great one a block from the beach in Sea Point for $48AU. Read the reviews to make sure others were happy and you can book with confidence.


    Good luck and baby dust to all.

    A massage at The Vineyard followed by lunch outside in The Courtyard.

    If you haven't been over before you may like to keep in mind that it may take about 3 days before your body clock adjusts. You may crash around 3pm. And then find you're fully awake in the middle of the night. Its always handy to have food with you for those midnight feasts if you've slept through dinner time!

    Ha ha ... thanks

    We have started looking into going to CT for an egg donation. We have just started contacting everyone there (Cape Fertility and some egg donation agencies).

    It's our last chance really...

    I'm a bit concerned about going to South Africa though... and need to know everything I can so I can be confident with our decision.

    Anyone know if they do surrogacy in SA, or any agency that does this?
    Hi i enquired about surrogacy in SA and what Blinky said is correct. You must be a resident there. I have done a little investigating just to suss out options too and the countries i found that can do surrogacy for overseas people like us are Canada and Ukraine. Canada is pricey- they wont give actual costs but i have figured around 100k. Ukraine is affordale at around 40k but i am not so sure about travel to the ukraine? Somedays i feel like im gettig desperate for a baby and will do anything but then i have to make myself snap out of it and be realistic. Is ukraine safe, do they treat the women fairly etc. I have not research enough as there is not much info on the net that i can find. If you dind anything please let me know i think it is possible to get your embryos transferred to other countries if you can find a legal surrogate .

    Thanks ECM, we will hopefully be in Cape Town on 6th June and will look at apartments in V & A. I was thinking that area looked good, safe and easy to get to restaurants etc. Thanks so much for the information.
