Its far too hot to walk outside today so I'll just squeeze in a couple of 15 minute exercise breaks while I'm working. I think if I'm starting to swell already I really better get back into it. Ugh I hate exercise, but feel so good after I've done it. Ah well. I'll be thankful after bubs are out and I'm not 15 kg heavier than I should be I suppose.. groannnn.
    Mmm, I feel ya. I've been getting swelling on & off for a bit over a month- depends on the weather I think. I'm on my feet at work all day, than get home & ice my ankles! Good excuse for a lay down I reckon lol

    Thanks @Charlie74. I'd just left a message for Gweneth to confirm that Melb Path could do them but you've just answered my question! I'm not going to even try and interpret the results!! Were they quite costly? And did they take 2-3 wks to get the results?
    In the last 2 wks the Pred has completely changed my body. I now have such a round moon face I cant look at myself in the mirror...and this happened as I was weaning down from the 25mgs rather than when I was on the full 25mgs.
    This is part of the reason why I'm completely over IVF now. And like you, I'll be starting again on it very soon. CFC emailed lastnight saying they want me to start my transfer cycle on 8 Feb at the latest (a good 3 wks earlier than I thought). And all I could think of was, nooo, but I only came off Pred on Tuesday.

    I thought it was going to cost more so that's good @Charlie74. It's just a shame the Safety Net thresh-hold has to start all over again for 2016. Cool, I'll pop a two week reminder in my diary after I have the tests done. Thanks for the tips!

    Gotta start the stupid pred again in 20 days..
    I'm the same. I'm dreading starting the stuff again and will be next week. I didn't wean off it last time as I wasn't told you had to. Oops. Anyway my stomach has been pretty flat my whole life until this dreaded stuff. Not sure about the moon face but I feel gross that's for sure. I'm barely eating and power walk 5kms a day and no change in my weight. Urgh.

    I can't get over my belly flab, I poke in a finger and it sinks to the elbow
    4 more weeks to go until weaning.

    Sadly @Bongley, if you wean while UTD it seems that what bloat you lose is pretty quickly replaced by pregnancy bloat. 😟

    @MamaKes I think it was you that mentioned the Known Donor program in Brisbane and the costs involved? @Maxwellsmum put me onto them and I thought it could be a good DE option, but after speaking to QFG today, the costs are just out of control. The Known Donor people cost about $13K and QFG are about $12K then that doesn't include the management of the donor's cycle as in doctors appointments and scans, or management of my cycle, appointments and scans or the transfer which is another $2300. So it could easily come out at $30K.

    So looking at @JulieMalooleys figures that she generously sent via PM for CapeTown, it is half of that, and even if you were very unlucky and had to go back multiple times for transfers, it's still likely cheaper.

    I haven't heard back from my friend who offered to donate, so I think she's getting cold feet, $$ wise I'd rather an Aussie donor but I know that takes time with the three month cooling off period and I want to pregnant like YESTERDAY!!

    This really sucks. When a natural pregnancy costs zero, to be looking at the costs we have to face it is ridiculous. Not sure what to do now. I have an appointment with my new FS to see if I can start a cycle of my own this month or next month, but I'm out very soon when I turn 45, so really want that next step in place. Why is it so hard?
