    Having trouble with IVF $$? Who isn't! I just found out today there is a new government initiative that allows you to draw superannuation to pay for IVF.
    We are going to try get it for this cycle!!

    Hi ladies,
    just hoping I can join you lovely people here! I know a few of you from the egg donor South Africa threads.
    Im in Cape Town at the moment just had my transfer of two beautiful embryos today. Very emotional day for us, we did 4 IVF cycles 4 years ago with nothing to show for it. Finally we're here and feel like I'm in with a good chance now. Actually of feels so surreal!
    Anyways hope I can be of help to anyone here on there journey and make some new friends
    lolly

    @BlondeinBrisvegas I have everything crossed for at least 7mm. As long as it isn't less which of course could happen. It's my body after all. But my fingers are firmly crossed.
    Yesterday I did some resting ta, simply because I couldn't function, my brain and body just stopped. My son was with his dad so I think my body just collapsed in a heap when it wasn't on auto pilot anymore.
    Now I need to severely swing into gear and get packed/organised for CT. Plus finish the Xmas shopping. Pluuus it's thinking ahead stuff, like bringing in all the heavy boxes of Xmas decorations from the shed now do I don't have to lift heavy boxes when I'm pupo. Best get cracking.
    Yep, transfer is your birthday @Charlie74. Surely that means they'll thaw well?! Do you have something lovely planned for your special day?

    @midnite01 I'm soooo glad you're having a scan on Tuesday. I know they wouldn't scan me until my hcg reached 1000, which of course as you know it didn't come close to, so I'm hoping they can still see what's going on for you. I'm seriously relieved he is helping you earlier. That's great news.

    I'm confused @Tahli (it doesn't take much, lol.)

    If, for example, you are 6 weeks pregnant, you should be able to see a sac at the very least, and probably a fetal pole, yolk sac and potentially a heartbeat too. At least, that is what my FS told me...

    So if your HCG was, say, 700 at 6 weeks, and they scanned and couldn't see anything, wouldn't that mean the pregnancy was non-viable anyway, even though your HCG is under 1000?

    I know with natural conception there can be date discrepancies, but IVF is kind of a sure thing as far as dates go. So I guess my question is, why is there a 'limit' on what your HCG is to be scanned? And would that mean, for example, if your HCG was 900 at 8 weeks gestation, they still wouldn't scan you? Because I would have thought that a pregnancy with 800 HCG at 8 weeks would be non viable?

    Or am I looking at it wrong, lol......

    Help

    I'm pleased your FS has considered doing the scan for you love. I would have thought you would be able to get a definitive answer with that.

    Are you still taking your meds or have you started weaning off them?

    Sending hugs your way
