    @pingc383 at my clinic if your doing a natural non medicated fet, then you wouldn't be on progesterone unless of course you've had history of miscarriages. I've had to do medicated fets as my progesterone is always so low.

    @bib when your next updating the roll call could you put me down for a stim cycle OE in Sept please. Ta
    @Maxwellsmum hope hubby is feeling better.

    Talking of usernames and assumptions we make about them. I have always thought @Tinachris was very unusual username, as I thought of it as a shortened version of cantankerous and not Tina and Chris

    Hi hon, that would be all inclusive OOP expenses. So cycle ($15,500), flights from Victoria to QLD and return, car hire, meds for me and my donor, and TESA for the husband We will get a chunk back from medicare after all that, but I basically need roughly $21K up front to get the wheels in motion. I reckon we'll be around $15K OOP once all is done and dusted. If we lived in the same state you could knock $2K off that as well.

    We did change clinics too. We had to in the end because my clinic was in NSW and my donor had already exceeded her family limit there. We are going to use her preferred clinic up in QLD now

    ETA: That cycle cost also includes my first transfer and all hospital/anaesthetist fees as well.

    My clinic didn't generally prescribe progesterone support either hon, but my honest opinion is that anyone of 'our vintage' should be on something for it. You can't have too much progy on board so personally, I'd be putting the foot down and demanding it. I carried on like a pork chop to get some with my third cycle. They refused. After I'd MC and started my final cycle all of a sudden they were suggesting progesterone. They actually said the words to me "After last time..."

    Yeah. After last time, when I'd pleaded for it. After last time when I MC'd.

    I wish I had pushed harder. Do yourself a favour and don't take no for an answer hon

    I think I might give him a go and see what he has to say. I also went to my GP and she wrote me out some scans and BTs my FS should have done, but didn't.
    Thanks so much for your response @Corbes. Can I ask tho, are you normally a good responder or a poor responder to stims? I got 2 eggs then 10 eggs, but on high dose of FSH.
    @pingc383 I saw ML for a second opinion and he seemed very approachable. He recommended immune meds so they do do prednisone intralipids clexane
    It was the same protocol suggested by my FS (AM at Genea/RPA) so I stuck with him. Both my IVF bubs were with him as FS.

    Hi gals, I've lost track of whats going on but I'm catching up now. Bubs is out of hospital and at home. Thus the radio silence!

    I've got a CT scan tomorrow to see if my appendix is still in there or if it was taken out krakatoa style with the abscess explosion. Hopefully it's gone, I've had enough of hospitals!

    Okay thanks lovely @Blossom74 that's great. Thanks for clarifying it for me. I don't know why I thought it was cheaper. Anywho, Was it you saying she has a FB page for you all to connect? I think that's a great idea.

    My heart!

    Gosh! Breathe!

    I just can't believe that in 4 months I've gone from "Well, that was our last cycle ladies, I'm out. There is no way forward." to "Get your motors running, here we go again!"

    My poor brain is having trouble accepting that this time next month it'll be go, go, go! And that in October, a mere 2 months away, I could potentially be.....pregnant!



    Same here (lol, is that a short enough post for you @Tinachris; -) )
