    That's interesting bib. I don't know the costs of surrogacy in Aus vs overseas but I'm assuming Medicare wouldn't cover the cost of ivf/birth here in Aus so that much compensation might just make it too prohibitive for some?

    @Caesardust I'm so sorry it didn't work out, it's so harsh and gets more and more difficult with each one (well it did with me anyway)

    I understand the principal behind altruistic surrogates and donors but I think the reality is that doing either of these things warrants (in my mind anway) more than token reimbursement. Going through an IVF cycle for someone else is pretty amazing stuff. Going through a pregnancy just blows my mind. I would hate it to become a "I'm just doing it for the money" thing but maybe a bit of moula might help some ladies thinking about it to say "Yes, this is now practical for me to go ahead with". Bug**er the men though. Having a w@nk is worth nothing in my book.

    That's why we were happy going to the US, they get paid an amount as well as being reimbursed for their time and travel. It made the cost higher (especially than SA) but we were happy to pay that, especially when we got the result we did!

    Hi all, I'm back. And I see I've been invited to a threesome with @Bongley and some gorgeous looking donuts. The day gets better and better!

    So, we picked up my little table and it's just perfect. And for $15 - well, you can't go wrong, can you?

    We had lunch out at the local bakery, had a look through all the shops, bought a lovely raspberry and white chocolate muffin to take home for later and picked up some bits and pieces at Aldi, saving us $ off our weekly grocery bill.

    On the way home we stopped for an ice-cream - and I got one which was Snickers flavoured! OMG is was good.

    So happy days! Except DH is now walking around the house talking about having sex. I presume he means with me. Sigh. I really can't be fagged....
