    thanks, yes it's feeling almost real now

    yeah @Blossom74 love going to Qld so it's all good I just had to double/triple check with the official orgs/teams to make sure there were no problems in future.

    @Maxwellsmum A quick question...what was your final lining measurement and on what day of your cycle? How are you feeling now?

    Congratulations @Caesardust !

    I've been a bit quiet as I've reached the worst part of the 2ww, same time as always. I start to have trouble coping in the last few days. I thought that another chemical was my worst fear, but now I have realised I am more terrified of a BFN. And that is what I have convinced myself that I've got... I had twinges and cramping during my two chems and nothing in my 2 BFN. I've had nothing this time round. I wish I could spend the rest of this time away from everyone, but have to be at work...

    @Caesardust congratulations!!! I missed the photo but assuming you're engaged:-) here's to a shot-gun wedding, i say! @MamaKes hi! I was reading this thread long before i posted and you were one of the first ladies i read about on here doing de. I didnt even really know anything about it, then you mentioned sa thread n then i checked it and slso foundcthe greece thread, whichbis what ive decided to do, so if it wasnt for you, i wouldn't have ever found my way to athens. Thank you so much xox @faithhopeandlove for athens de its about aud 10k for cycle costs (epu, onor meds, transfer, freezing leftover embys), flights about 1500-2000k per person depending on high season/low season variations and 60aud per night for accomodation in apartment, so 600aud for 10 days. I havent been yet but when i get back in october i can give you exact figures. If you check our greek clinics be sure to check their freezing policies. 1 clinic i looked at seemed good but they freeze remaining embies 3 to a vial, so you have to thaw all 3, which i didnt like. My dr there also said to check that cheap clinics arent doing shared cycles (unless thats egat you actually want) Hope that helps a bit. Basically, same $ as capetown, but anonymous donor n dr chooses donor not you (which i actually liked coz it was making me too mental thinking about what to choose/not choose) i actually liked that i didnt have to be involved in choosing and i am a wog, so greece was a good cultural, skin tone match for me. I hope that helps :-)

    So the story goes.....we were in Kirstenbosch gardens at the foot of table mountain sitting on the grass in the sunshine admiring the view and he said 'will you marry me' in Zulu and I said 'what are you saying?' So he showed me his phone with the translation and then he put the ring on my finger. He had been so nervous he felt sick. Perfect location, gorgeous ring and hopefully a good luck charm for this de cycle all rolled into one. It will never be forgotten that's for sure. Picturesque!

    Quick cycle question ladies. Do you ever have a blood test to check levels before the transfer? Today is day 1? (day after Epu) and we are aiming for a day 5 transfer on Monday. They haven't asked me to do anything now until Monday but I wonder if my body is in the best way to receive this embryo. Should I ask them to check anything?

    Today is 9dpo so could start, but earliest I've ever started is 11dpo. I swore I would never do it before work again as during the last chem my positive turned to negative the nexr day and I had a meltdown and couldn't cope with work. When it dried out a positive turned up, but it was too late then. I might POAS saturday but have a lot going on.

    My biggest trouble is I work with toddlers, so cannot put my head down at a desk and work, I have to deal with people and children all day long. It's like my failure is just being thrown in my face constantly and I have to smile and act happy. I just want to be grumpy
