Thanks KLM that is super useful to know, and so glad you got your bfp, congrats!
Gives me hope also to hear of other ladies having success with CFC after bfn... this was my first donor cycle and a big part of my was so hopeful that this would be the thing that worked. It's crushing when it doesn't work... so glad to have got some next steps now.
I asked CFC if they keep any stats on when their patients fly after transfer and whether that affects outcomes, but they said no - shame because they are in a unique position to collect those stats to see if it makes any difference to outcomes. Anyway, understand they are just offering the basics.
I find flying can be quite hard on my body - I can't sleep on planes, so it messes me up. I was thinking of staying in j'burg at the airport hotel this time to break up the flights, to be able to crash as soon as I get to SA, then taking a flight to CT the next day. Even though j'burg and CT are close, by the time we went through the airports it added 7 hours to our travel time last time - so tiring.
The other issue is jetlag - does anyone have experience with a shorter stay, is it easier to stay on oz time and avoid jetlag?
Not sure if these issues make a difference or not, but just want to give the next go my best shot. Thanks ladies <3
