sounds like Greece is cheaper for meds - may have to stock up on a few things (DH Type1 diabetic so maybe we'll get him some things as well!)
@gorgeousgeorge - woohoo!
We're all set - 4 sleeps to go Well DH hasn't looked at anything yet but he can pack last minute and never stresses (I'm practically packed)!
thanks @gorgeousgeorge! Folate always covered - I'd never go a day without my supplements and they've got high dose of folate in them ! They were packed first!
Your list of what to take really helped thanks!
Hi ladies just popping on to see if anyone needs any of the following meds, my girlfriends just had a failed cycle and due to age cut off can't go back, she has 30+ boxes of utrogestan, 10 vials of pio and 6 vials of neupogen, pm me if anyone is interested
Hullo ladies - I've read through a lot of this thread and just want to acknowledge you all for being so open and supportive to one another - and of course for hanging in there. I think you're all incredible. I've read with bated breath through the highs and lows. I have my fingers and toes crossed for you all. I am 40 (41 in Jan) and I am trying for a sibling for my 3 y.o. Most recently IVF with Lyn Burmeister- (she has helped me before to conceive DD with clomid in 2012) I've had two cycles, two failed Tranfers. I have one frozen embryo (that's all I got from the last full stim) but it was not ok to be PGD tested so I'm not sure of the quality. I didn't have it transferred as I've had a chromosomal m/c in the past. Plus I thought I'd bank more of my OE first. I was thinking of going for one more full stim but this thread is making me rethink this or have this as my next step if that fails because I feel the road with my OE is coming to an end. Plus financially my choices will dry up pretty quickly too. Reading this thread has given me hope (and I needed it after all the disappointment!) because each month that passes I can feel 41 staring down the barrel... but you've given me hope and I'm actually excited that the door to project sibling (I like that) doesn't have to shut quite as soon as I thought. Anyway, that's me - I will keep reading in the background and I'm loving the sound of Dr N! I'm pencilling May as the month to be in Greece if stuff w/ my OE fails. Have a super weekend and keep the faith!
Phia hi :-) and welcome... i felt the same as you when i found this thread xox Felt like i was stuck in a pit of despair and the donor option was like someone shone a light and threw a rope down to help me climb out of the hole i was in. Im wishing you the best of luck with your oe cycles and great to hear you're contemplating plan b or c or d.... Happy to help in anyway (i havent been to do a cycle in greece yet but there are many ladies on here who have and they know lots of stuff :-) )
gorgeousgeorge thank you! My heart goes out to you that the universe will provide when it's your time for Greece! I'll be reading along and sending the best vibes! Just realised post sounds pretty "hippy" - but hey whatever helps! 😎
