    So we'd be 5 days apart, if all went to plan. I had images of us POAS together up in your outdoor dunny! POAS party style!!
    Is any-one else doing a March transfer?
    @Summer I'm worried about you love. How are things going with DH?
    @BlondeinBrisvegas Are you feeling any better today? I wonder if you'll be under the weather off and on for all of Term 1? It doesn't help down here when it's 31c one day and 18c the next.
    Thanks for being kind re my fur ball. He had an endoscopy, ultrasound, biopsy. So the same as me last Fri but the other end! And his procedure was decidedly more expensive! I get his results on Friday. So all up $3k so far. The equivalent of going back to CT for a FET.
    And also a belated thanks for all the doggie chats a few weeks ago. A Cavoodle is looking like a good choice as a 4 year old boy's companion. So if I can't create a sibling for him, a Cavoodle might be on the cards.

    Oh @Tahli, I didn't realise you had a sick fur-baby. I also didn't realise I had an outside loo, lol, but that's another issue entirely Re: The fur-baby, was this a dog or a cat? And what has led you to treatment for him? What was wrong? I seem to have missed that conversation entirely. Sorry! Re: The POAS-athon, all being well we will definitely be close. And I tell you what, if it came down to POAS party style, I've no doubt I'd be able to do it. There is No. Dignity. Left.

    @Summer, yes, how are you and DH going in the negotiations? I really hope that things will turn a corner for you both. Everything would be SO much easier if you were on the same page.


    As for me....I've just made an impromptu appointment to see my OB/GP at 4pm this afternoon. I want to know how many eggs I have left. Or rather, what my egg reserve is looking like. You all know what I mean, ha ha.

    Anyway, can anyone remind me of the name of the test I need to ask for? And also, while I'm giving out my precious blood, should I ask for any other BT's? I've had all the 'standard' stuff done already - STD checks, iron, hormones, liver function, cholesterol, sugar, that sort of thing. Anything else I need to check that could be of benefit and won't send me too broke?

    @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?
