    No offense at all. The comment that annoyed me was "only rich people can afford ivf" I wish I hadn't of read that late at night as I had an awful sleep after that. I redrew on our home loan to get the 30k for my donor cycle and I only have enough left to do one FET cycle. It weights on my mind alot how much money/debt we have accrued from IVF and to still be childless. More so than anything I am holding a lot of hope on my first DET cycle transfer been successfully while knowing deep down it might not be 😕

I have mixed feelings on the show so I don't want to comment too much. It was good but of course they could have done a longer show and really explored it all a bit more. Maybe wazza could have commented instead of the FS they had. He was pretty vague and I didn't feel he was honest. Anyways just my opinion! Don't want to cause offense to anyone 😄

    It's a tough one isn't it?

    But it raises an interesting point though. My FS was quite up-front about our poor chances of success, and yet even after my MC (and we're talking two or three days) I got a call from a FN asking what our plans were going forward. There was a definite push (well, by the Nurses anyway) to move onto the next cycle as soon as each cycle ended. That was always a concern for me.

    At the end of the day, most of us will go to the ends of the Earth to have our babies. We will put up with anything - judgement, arrogant doctors, crippling medications, painful procedures. If there is money to be found, we'll scrape it up and send it in - anything for a chance.

    That's how I have always felt, anyway. I told my DH I will never give up on this, and if we can't afford IVF I'll find another bl00dy way to do it. It would be easy for clinics to take advantage of women with the same sort of mentality as me.

    Bahahahah. Rich?! Yeah, right! We've had plenty of occasions where it was a close choice between buying food or paying the car rego/power bill at our place. We're borrowed to the hilt. Our savings are gone. We have no safety net. If DH lost his job we'd starve.

    NKC's can be detected in both BT's and via Uterine Biopsy but you need to have both ways tested Luv. Just because they're not in your blood doesn't mean they're not in your oven creating havoc IYKWIM???

    Clotting disorder = a must for Clexane. You need to have that as that can and will hinder implantation of any embryo for you Luiv.

    Yes, but if I'm on the Pred and Clexane am I not being treated for it anyway? ie: What would be the point of the further investigations, if that makes sense?

    Yes I feel much the same. I am very lucky too my parents paid for two of my stims and they give me money when I go to Brisbane ect to help pay for me travel ect. I don't ask them for or expect hand outs but they are well off and my poor mum wants a baby for me almost as much as I do. PS. you got my link to work I was worried I didn't post it right.

    Sorry BIB, I know very little about these things. But I suspect I am soon to find out a whole lot more....
