    Congratulations Sunnygirl! What a fast track birthing experience you had, sometimes I think that works out better - less time to stress and debate what ifs (mine was similar with our twins).
    Enjoy this newborn stage and getting to know them x
    @maxwell I completely agree. While we did do our cycle (under supervision from the same QFG specialist) in SA - that style of cycle is not for everyone and I'm so pleased their are now options for those who can't facilitate or deal with the logistics of an overseas cycle. I thinks it's great this new format of cycle can also offer SA girls an opportunity to travel and have new experiences, in the same way that their gift gives us the hope and opportunity of a family.

    @ECM1981 I didn't have that side effect I'm afraid but I am glad you don't have your head down the loo! I started back on 500mgs yesterday. I'll do the half dose for a week then bump up to 1000mgs next w.end.
    @arall Congrats on such brilliant numbers!! You must be stoked. I asked who your FS was as I was interested in which one was so unsupportive of an immune protocol. I'm glad your 4 y/o is sleeping better, thus you're more rested. Enjoy your transfer and don't forget to ask for a pic of your embryos pre and post transfer!

    Hello! I'm new here. First time poster, long time reader.

    We just got back from SA last week from my first DE cycle, with a BFN

    Would love to be part of the conversation here. Here's my story.

    I have had autoimmune issues since childhood - managed relatively well with meds over the years, although I have had some painful times. I get to live a (mostly) normal life, have travelled extensively, which is awesome, and most people wouldn't know I have these issues.

    We have been TTC for 4 years, I'm in my late 30s. I was diagnosed with endo 3 years ago - had the symptoms since my teens but like many, it was not diagnosed. Had the surgery, removed a bunch of scar tissue.

    I fell pregnant a couple of months later, but I lost the baby.

    About 6 months after that, we did two cycles of IVF. One of my ovaries doesn't function (possibly to do with the endo), so got few eggs and poor quality embies and none to blast.

    Because of my history, it was an easy decision to seek DE. I'm not that attached to my genes. I don't want my kids to deal with this sh*t. I also think families are bigger than genes.... families are a shared story. Shared love.

    I looked into Czech but felt more comfortable with the program in Cape Town. I also found a donor who was an excellent match to me which sealed the deal for me.

    We flew over there in early April, stayed at the Vineyard Hotel and then an apartment in Camp's Bay for the final few days. We loved CT.

    We got 4 blasts, transferred 2 and froze 2. I has a feeling from the day after the transfer that it wasn't going to work. We got home and got a BFN on Friday.

    I wasn't all that impressed with CFC tbh - I found them a bit blase about it all. I'm not sure I was on the right protocol.

    So anyway, feeling a bit heart sore at the moment. Would love to connect with some of you ladies in the same boat.

    At this stage am planning to return to CT in July for the FET.

    @fleetfox I'm really sorry for your BFN. Have you consulted with Dr Gamal Matthias the Reproductive Immunologist in Sydney yet?

    Fleet, sorry it didn't work out. If you have auto immune issues you definitely need to consukt with Dr M. He is tge man in Aus that deals with immune issues parallel to IVF. There is an immunology thread on hear. As a start you could read the book Is your body baby friendly. I believe his treatment plan got me my twins, oh and younger eggs!
