    OK...have been to Centredump and lodged all the paperwork. I had a lovely lady looking after me and explaining my entitlements (ironically, it was the same woman I got last time I was there a couple months back on a unrelated issue) and such.

    It seems you can live under the one roof when separated for a length of time if needs be. On the forms when it asked how long you expected to live together when separated etc I said "1-4 months" to allow for some breathing space.

    If the specialist team approve my application for "Separated Under One Roof" then I'll receive the above mentioned entitlements the lady informed me about. I've worked out my budget and from the lady's "guesstimation" I'll be able to afford to stay here with DD but it's going to be very, very tight (not that I expect to "live it up" on benefits!!!).

    What I mean is that I'll be able to afford to stay here until the lease is up at the end of the year which is the main thing as I didn't want to have to break it and then find somewhere else to go at short notice plus get the $ together for everything either etc, etc so am relieved I'll at least be able to make it work until then even though I'll virtually be on the bones of my a r s e the whole time.

    If I get approved for some financial assistance for DD that will give me a little wiggle room (mind you there's a good chance I'll be knocked back as they may not consider her/her conditions "disabled enough" to receive assistance) so keep your crossed and send a prayer to the Universe for me please Lovelies that I get approved for both applications in the next few weeks

    @midnite01 we have a fully automatic saeco coffee machine. It takes beans, grinds them and then pours out espresso, long blacks, long coffees etc. manual milk frother on the side. I think we paid about $1500 for it a few years ago, but use it everyday and have no issues with it at all.

    I don't like the pod machines myself, I'd rather go plunger coffee than that! We take a stovetop percolater type pot camping that's how much I hate instant coffee!

    Here is s pic of our machine Attachment 78956[/QUOTE]

    We had this machine .... Loved it. Lasted about nine years. We only updated at Christmas time. Stayed with same brand Saeco. Now we have exprella evo. Love this baby. Love Saeco. They are pricy. But well worth it in the long run

    Hi ladies! I have my Mum and Dad staying here so this might be quick, but I wanted to pop on and update you all.

    Yep, I'm PUPO! Never thought I'd get to this point TBH. I had 3 eggs collected, but one was "Severely abnormal" and the other was immature. The one which did fertilise was "A bit darker than we would have liked" but they also said "That is not unusual for someone of your age."

    It was taken out Wednesday at 9.30am, and put back in on Friday at 8.45am, so I guess that is a 2 day transfer? Or is it classed as a 3 day transfer? Either way, it developed correctly in the given time to arrive at 4 cells before being put in.

    As far as gradings go, it got a 7 out of 10 on one scale, and was graded 2 to 3 on the other. I presume that a '1' would be an 'A' grade emby, so this must have been a B-C. Sounds about right? I am a little hesitant on one hand that it could work, but the tech did say to me not to get too caught up on numbers. She said "Your last one was an 'A' grade, and it didn't work. Maybe a slower one will do the job."

    She said that in their opinion the best place for that emby was "inside Mummy" so we'll go with that.

    I am the proud owner of 14 FRER and had an Ovidrel trigger Monday night at 9.15pm. Not sure when to start testing? Am thinking maybe Monday morning so I can see the trigger fading out?

    Also, I wanted to send @Tahli a HUGE thank you. Not having my computer while I was away was really hard but through @Tahli I still felt connected to you all. On a personal level, your kind words at what have been some worrying and upsetting times has made a massive difference hon. I can't thank you enough.

    One more thing....

    Since our emby was a B-C grade, I have gone with what feels natural, and we shall henceforth refer to him as Baby Cakes

    @winsor, I've missed a lot over the last few days but I did see your post and am sending out massive hugs. As Queen of The Frucked Up Pregnancies I can tell you I got to over 45,000 on my HCG and it meant diddley-squat in the end. BT's are not the be-all and end-all and for pregnancies, for me at least, provided little comfort.

    I know the worry, as many of us do. It's bl00dy hard when your symptoms fade or never develop properly, but the game is different for everyone. Some people with loads of symptoms MC. Some who have none go on to have a beautiful baby. In the end none of it really gives a true indicator of how your pregnancy is progressing.

    I am crossing everything I have that all is well with your little one Monday will come soon enough and one way or the other you will get through it. I always say prepare for the worst, and hope for the best. Take someone with you, not because I'm concerned at all that something is wrong, but more because special moments should be shared. I have faith that everything will be just fine, but I so understand the worry that comes with your wait

    thanks @Blossom74. 2 more sleeps (+ some naps)
    I'm looking forward to hearing how baby cakes progresses. I think the slower ones are better too so
