    Hi, I think the agency asked her about it on Fri so I'm hoping to hear tonight or early this week so I can plan my next steps.

    Does anyone know if cango caves are within driving distance of Cape Town... It looks like a long long way in the map....

    Emski, sorry to hear about the BFN. Kudos for jumping back on the bandwagon.

    Pixel, thank you for sharing your story and wishing you all the best.

    I went on a day trip to Inverdoorn and enjoyed it. The day trip is sufficient. I went with Hank from Ulungele tours and enjoyed the conversation with him as much as the safari. http://www.ulungeletours.co.za I would definitely do it before embryo transfer, probably the day after the scan would be okay.

    Someone a few days back was looking for budget accommodation. I had a really great experience with a B&B close to the clinic, Lavender House: http://www.lavenderhousebnb.co.za

    Quite honestly, the hospitality in Cape Town is outstanding.

    Damn emski, I had my fingers and toes crossed for you. Make sure you allow yourself to be ****ed off. It doesn't matter how many times we get a bfn it still sucks. Xxx

    Leshoja, we went to cape town on our honeymoon and did the garden route from cape town to Port Elizabeth. Part of the route was visiting the cango caves. From memory it was a pretty long way, our 3rd night into the drive, traveling a couple of hours each day and we stayed at oudtshoorn. We actually found the caves very underwhelming as tourist could climb on everything and had been snapping off the stalactites. They'd been completely ruined.

    Hi can I add the drive to Hermanus along the coast is breathtakingly beautiful and leisurely for one day. Hermanus is a seaside escape for holidays and nice for a night or two.

    That would have to be some of the most magnificent views I've seen in the world so I'd recommend that as a fantastic option for those heading over to CT.

    Eek we've already booked inverdoorn for the last day before we come home !! Oh well, if I can shake it out of me, it would probably never have stuck I suppose

    Leyshoja don't worry. I doubt you can shake it out. If it's meant to be a road isn't going to stop it.

    I was really upset in Bali so hot hiking up and down sightseeing boiling hot and yet all was well.

    Emski: Sorry to hear about your BFN but glad you're back on the horse already (as it were) and are planning your next trip. Re accommodation with a child, we stayed in Molteno Cottage in Claremont which was perfect. The owners (now gone, sadly) set a little single bed up for our six-year-old in the main living area which wasn't a problem...we just put him to bed in our room and then swapped him over when we went to bed. But there will be room for a travel cot in the main bedroom. We paid R850 a night (plus a little extra for our son but I doubt they'd charge you extra for a baby).

    Have you heard from your original donor yet?

    Jennski and Ferngirl: Welcome to the thread. You'll find all the info you'll need in all the threads. I am eternally grateful for stumbling across this thread (thanks Google!) as I would never have considered going to SA for DE without it. The support and info is invaluable. I went to CT last November and am now 33 weeks pregnant with a little girl...

    Pixel: Thanks for sharing your story again...it also brought a tear to my eye. Glad all is going well.

    Hello to everyone else at whatever stage of the journey you are on!

    Thanks Patsy, I'd looked at Molento before but I heard they didn't take kids, might enquire again as it's new owners now and I've checked its location out when we were over the first time just in case.
    No word yet from original donor and in the interim donors I like through other agencies are being snapped up... might be time to back away for a month or so and stop looking until we have dates for my husband's travel as we have to work around that anyway... driving myself crazy!
    @Lisaxxx, @Cathy69, @TannyMac how are you all going?

    Em x
