    @Blossom74 - it's the AMH test you want ( Anti Mulherin Hormone I think is the full name) for egg reserve. I have had full bloods a couple of times but I can't remember if I ever actually had testosterone levels done as I don't have a copy of any of my results. I have to remember to ask about as I think it's worth doing as if testosterone is low things like DHEA and menopur which contains lh is good but if testosterone is on the higher side from what I've read stimm meds containing lh ( and possibly dhea but not completely sure) are not recommended .

    Didn't you have an outdoor loo when your indoor loo broke down?
    My fur baby is a 12y/o long haired much adored cat who can't hold down any water or food. They shaved a large portion of his fur off his tummy and side to do the ultrasound and now he's walking lop-sided. Bless him. It's such a shame you can't insure pets over 10 years old. Incidentally, he's on 5mgs of Pred. That's half the dose LB suggests for me!
    The blood test you might be referring to is the AMH. $90 not claimable via Medicare. You might want to check liver function.
    @midnite01 I've just had to call Dr M's office 5 times to get my scripts emailed to me. Apparently they're in the mail but I don't know if I'll get them by CD1. So just a tip to stay on top of chasing them.
    I'm still cramping 5 days post hysteroscopy. I assume this is normal? I'm guessing my 'hit by a truck' virus isn't helping. I just want to get well by CD1.

    Yeah, I think beetroot should only be eaten when it's drowned/swimming in balsamic vinegar!
    I bet you can't wait to be hugging both of them. As I mentioned when your little niece was born I've experienced the exact same thing. Sis in Melb and me in London for the births of our babies. It's such a sad longing not being with each other. Not long for you to go though, only 3-4 months! I hope your niece is nice and plump and healthy now.
    Thanks heaps for your PM. I just emailed K asking for the same thing but the script has already been done for the original one. It was worth a try though!

    Oh, THAT loo. That was a Porta-loo, and our real estate agent hired it when the plumbing died. That went back to the hire place once things were fixed. So no outside loo here now. Unless you want to pee in the garden

    Poor Puss cat My old boy had a problem kind of like that. He was diabetic and I used to have to inject him with insulin twice a day. Anyway, he lost the ability to swallow as a side effect of the diabetes, and my options were to put him to sleep or let him starve to death. I did 'the right thing' and ended his suffering. Completely different to your case though love so don't take anything away from that.

    Right, AMH it is. I did have liver function and testosterone checked a few months ago but what the heck, I may as well repeat everything right? Can't hurt. How long do the AMH results take to come through? And what would be considered a 'normal range' for someone of our vintage?

    Re the scripts @Tahli, my clinic will fax scripts direct to my pharmacy so they can get a head start on ordering in my drugs. Being in the middle of nowhere it can take up to 2 weeks for mine to arrive. Normal drugs are easy enough to get - they keep those in stock. But they were scratching their heads at Gonal-F and Orgalutran ha ha. They told me this system would work but by law they needed the original paper script within 7 days of receiving the fax. Anyway, that might be an option if you get close to your date?


    Oh, I have another question. And this is not intended to knock anyone who chooses CT or Greece or wherever for egg donation. But why do people go to other countries for egg donation when we can advertise in Australia for a donor, and get the donations done here at close to the same price as a stim cycle for ourselves? Isn't overseas more pricey? Or are the chances of finding a donor in Australia just really low?

    I have an old weatherboard clad outdoor loo instead! The red back spiders could form an audience at our POAS party!!
    I'm sorry to hear about your fur baby. It's so sad to lose our furry companions like that.
    The AMH takes about 2-3 wks to come back.
    Dr M's scripts have just been faxed to my chemist & I can collect them tomorrow. Now I need to receive LB's in the mail. So much piecing together to get a cycle organised!
    Re CT I'm sure every-one's decision to go there will be motivated by different factors. For me I could get cracking straight away. I like being removed from the ED. I didn't have to 'date' the ED to be a recipient. Lots of fair donors. Transparent process. Lots of other girls had been there with success so it didn't seem dodgy!
