    I'm so sorry @Tahli haven't you had enough **** recently?!?! My fur babies are my only babies and I cry into them a lot when they're on my lap. I can't imagine what you are going through, thinking of you xxx

    @Bongley Ive been trying to find that post you did with the breakdown of your cycle costs..too hard!! With the hospital cover for your donor is it whether she has medical cover or is it based on your medical cover? We have top hospital cover but Im guessing that won't even matter if its based on the donor's. My mum has offered to help us pay for it which is so great, has taken a huge load off my shoulders so Im just trying to start to get my head around everything.

    If you happen to have that list within copy and paste would you mind posting it otherwise I have the info from Genea its just getting a very realistic look at it. I know you said counselling is extra too. I don't expect you to retype btw only if you had it somewhere!!!

    I also just spoke to RPA and you can transfer your embryos it might just be a matter of waiting out the quarantine period of 3 months before you can use them, Robyn is going to call me tomorrow as she up to speed on it all and wasn't there.
    @winsor - thought this might all be useful for you too when you find your donor and if she is interstate you can transfer back to RPA and go through them.

    The plan is to do the first one through Genea and then if we need more transfers we can go through RPA.

    @tuxcat funny you ask, I looked it up again myself a few weeks back:-


    initial consult $350?
    genea cycle $5000 oop
    theatre costs $1500?
    counseling $650
    donor expenses $1500

    = $9000

    PLUS

    blood tests for donor $500
    Intralipids $700
    Biopsy $250
    FET x 3 $7500?
    PGD testing $2500? capped (or 700? each)
    embryo freezing $300

    = $11,750

    TOTAL $20,750

    "
    That's not including all the meds and precriptions too, depends on the meds but that could add a few hundred *shudder* I was initially budgeting for 10K too but it blew out (obviously).
    Please triple check the costs with genea though (especially the FETs) as I was half in denial and just paying things then trying my best to forget about it. Also the medicare rebates on the cycles and FETs confused my memory of costings a bit."

    @Bongley awesome thanks!!! Do you know about the hospital cover question? Is it whether the donor has cover or if you do for her egg pickup?

    Hi ladies

    I have a question for any experienced IVFers. Is it possible for an early stage blastocyst to de-evolve overnight back to a compacting embryo?? I've just been told this happened to my embryo. Yesterday it was an early blast I was told by one lab technician. Today she says its not and its a compacting embryo so somehow it's gone backwards in development. I'm very sceptical and I'm concerned as the lab have given us a huge cause for concerns in the past.

    Would really appreciate your knowledge on this.

    Thanks

    Jade
    Ps I'm writing to complain as there were other discrepancies in the results. Told I had a 4AA blast by one technician then today a different technician told me it was a 3AA yesterday.

    Never heard of it reversing, just slowing and stopping 🤔Sounds to me like they are lacking consistency with their grading, and considering they do grading everyday I find that prospect very concerning.

    thanks @tuxcat & Bongley that's really useful. and expensive! ouch

    I'm not sure @Apples1234 - I haven't heard of that happening. but I can't remember what the #cells difference is between those two stages. I thought the blast was when there's the outer cells & inner mass and some liquid/space between them for some/most of the internal diameter. I didn't realise they could lose some space/go back to compacted. perhaps they made a mistake and were looking at another embryo during one of the calls?

And I remember during it feeling like backhanding her whilst I was lying there and hearing her tell me people who sit down for work have very tight muscles around the butt legs/lower back region. Yes I thought, it was like she was punishing me for that fact!!!

    I can give you her number if you like
    I do like the sounds of that. I've ended up with bruising a few days later. I must like pain
    I do enjoy deep tissue
