My pharmacist has just called me back with most of the prices on Wazza's kitchen sink protocol meds. There were 3 expensive items:
Trental $52 X 50 tablets
Ethinyl Estradoil $65-89 (awaiting accurate pricing)
Viagra $32 X 8
Do these prices seem right?
Please don't stick virtual pins in my eyes. I have a concession card because I'm a single mum. I know it's a complete oxymoron spending thousands on on ivf and getting reduced IVF meds, $6-11 each. I feel guilty.
Afternoon ladies or morning for me. 3 hours til transfer and I'm about to have my tea and toast and pop to the shops for some brandy. I've got the Valium ready to take 30 mins before (x2) and thanks @Tahli for the reminders to get photos and be aware of stirrups. I'm feeling cautiously excited but know it's just another hurdle to cross in the journey.
I'll be joining you soon @Charlie74
@midnite01 things are looking really good for you. I'm so excited xo
@Tahli having a concession card would be amazeballs in this process. The meds cost so much. The trental was $42.70 a box for me which was a lot. Progynova $10.50 estradot $15.70 clexane $38.20 but I think it all depends on the script and the cycle you're doing.
Goodluck @Caesardust not long at all now! Excited butterflies creeping in? Best wishes and enjoy the drugs and alcohol. Thats how a lot of babies are made, so I think you are onto a good thing!
@midnite01 Id be surfing cloud9 with your news.. How are you feeling or you don't stop to realise? I agree you are zooming under the radar.
@Tahli I think you are extra brave doing this as a single mum. Its hard work with a partner, so I admire you and your strength.
@Charlie74 hang in there, you and your ( . )( . ) 's! It clicked with me when I burst into tears watching kids dance on the Ellen show. That was my real only thing, everything else was prog. My chest was heavier I guess, but as heavy as a little set of baby mandarins can be..
How are you @gorgeousgeorge ?
@BIB I am hearing you.. My son was vomiting 2 days out from his party! Suicide squad was perfect for a group of 9yr olds. I loved it! I hope she is ok and welcome to terrible 2's!
Had my scan and its all clear. No leftovers in there and no issues she could see. Back to see FS tomorrow for a WTF appt, I have no questions, I just want to have a break from the magic wand and blood thieves. I pick up my softball uniform this week. I have no idea why Id take up a sport at age 39 that Ive never played before. The attraction is smacking something with a bat. Boy will my IVF be the source of my aggression out there. Oh and the post match beers.. ⚾️
Tahli if all goes as planned and we do donor epu on mon 26th sept, then transfer should be sat 1st october :-) Lol, yeah hubby is my most essential carry on luggage coz he's got sperm. I'll be all like, passport- check, man with sperm- check. All good to go ;-)
@Billie2 hiya:-) yeah im going pretty good, had a busy weekend doing normal people stuff which was nice. I think its great that you're looking forward to softball. Taking an interest in bew things n getting out into the world n doing stuff is good for your mind and body i reckon.
@Tahli dont feel guilty mate. Thats how the system works n im glad you can get the benefits you deserve xox
@BlondeinBrisvegas im sorry your dd's party didnt go as planned- probably a normal child's birthday party really, as ive never been to one that did go to plan and its goid it wasnt perfect coz then all the other mums would be hating on you. Lol im technologically clueless too. I would have put an actual real piece of paper over dd's name, then taken a photo of that. So no help here soz.
@Caesardust thats great news. So i think about 2hrs to go now. I hope you get some great blasts to transfer and some frosties would be nice too!
