I hope everything's ok @Green lady. wouldn't it be nice to have a worry free time for once
CAEserdust- lots of hugs and love to you as I think we were in SA around the same time. Its so difficult and beyond words to describe how it feels, may you be strengthened as each day passes. Im still processing and grieving of our recent unsuccessful result, as we had not told anyone about the reason we went to SA. But all the very best with the ladies who are cycling and going through the journey, your commitment and enduring strength gives me hope
Thanks Charlie74 we have not reached safety net yet so will have to contact medicare I think to see how much we get back when we do.
Sorry @greenlady I was about 48 posts behind when I posted and realise @BlondeinBrisvegas already did a welfare check.
@Spazzyp I like you mire now you mentioned wine. I gave up wine during my whole cycle. But there is a precious 5 day gap between egg collection & embryo transfer. In my experience, do what you normally do post egg collection. Even post transfer. A wine will relax you. There is a new tradition I am supporting that @Caesardust started that you show your empty post transfer. You could be a dry sponge on the sink all dried up, tense & twisted, or be like a wet sponge and spread out & relax..
No judgement here 🏻
Gagingi - I did the panorama NIPT . It came back low risk but doesn't give me much comfort since it's only looking for the major/common chromosomal disorders. It also covered 5 of the most common microdeletion syndromes, but again that still leaves 18 other pairs of chromosomes to have a problem, hence why I think I will do an amnio at about 6 weeks.
Pregnant for the first-time?
