    How exciting! Fingers crossed there are not too many bidders there to drive up the price.

    I think it's started. cramping heavier and back starting to ache. it's coming & going though over last hour or two - light-af level. I did a digital - was very diluted as I'd only gone half an hour ago but it's back down to 2-3weeks, so I think hcg is falling. so I think bub might have passed yesterday or today. i suspected she might be gone today when I woke so deflated. so I'm glad she got to feel the love from us and our friends and family before she went. will see how things go overnight

    I would appreciate any comments as to what you paid in each scenario.


    ETA: Also, does anyone know if there is a cut-off limit for the age of an egg donor?


    Thanks heaps
    It actually cost me more for the first DE cycle and all I got was 2 X 3 and 4 cell transfers. That's why I'm going to Greece on Sunday. Even with the travel costs it's cheaper and I'm guaranteed blastocysts😀

    For me DE cycle was about $6000 more than OE cycle. My clinic estimated a rebate of $7500 but my rebate ended up being about $600 less. They still can't tell me why.
    I also refused to pay the counsellor fees as their prices were ridiculous and the "counselling" questionable.
    I would strongly suggest, if you have used the same FS for previous cycles requesting a discount and perhaps mention that nowadays it is cheaper to go overseas.
    I personally think they "double dip" for DE cycles and the extra costs are unjustified. Ask for a discount and ask to pay "option b" so you don't have to pay it all upfront just the Medicare gap further down the track.
    Hope that helps a little

    Oh and I think donor cut off age is 36 unless you sign a waiver

    Good luck tomorrow @midnite01 I love looking at houses to buy. Nothing is ever perfect, but I'm sure you can make it a lovely home.
    @Blossom74 I can't help with costs locally as I did my donor cycle overseas. I paid us$27k for the overseas cycle alone and all up have paid aud$10k on immune meds. I did get to choose my donor and it is a semi anonymous (i.e. We have pics and info but can't contact her). We decided to go there because they had a great success rate and they seemed to get more embryo's than some other overseas clinics. It was very $$$$ though and we dipped into the mortgage to pay for it. We were also lucky enough to pay for this in the last financial year where I was able to claim my oop costs in my income tax. So we got about .20c in the dollar back after the initial $2k oop. Everything we have paid since transfer though has been in the new financial year so nothing is claimable.
