    Speaking of DH the other day we were having a chat about DE for second bub and he mentioned biological differences not being full siblings. I went to great pains to tell him about epigenetics and how this influences Bub's looks, personality etc. Well a couple of hours later he comes back with: "About that metadata stuff..." Took me a couple of seconds to work it out. Metadata... . I have no idea where he got that from. Men.

My mum has offered to help us pay for it which is so great, has taken a huge load off my shoulders so Im just trying to start to get my head around everything.

    If you happen to have that list within copy and paste would you mind posting it otherwise I have the info from Genea its just getting a very realistic look at it. I know you said counselling is extra too. I don't expect you to retype btw only if you had it somewhere!!!

    I also just spoke to RPA and you can transfer your embryos it might just be a matter of waiting out the quarantine period of 3 months before you can use them, Robyn is going to call me tomorrow as she up to speed on it all and wasn't there.
    @winsor - thought this might all be useful for you too when you find your donor and if she is interstate you can transfer back to RPA and go through them.

    The plan is to do the first one through Genea and then if we need more transfers we can go through RPA.
    @tuxcat when I did the EPU with my Aus donor I was told that even if she had top hospital cover it could not be used for an EPU for someone else. It just didn't make sense to me and still doesn't. Whether she is doing it or I was, it's all elective surgery.. Her medicare rebate came off the cycle price though.

    Default IVF over 40 #32

    Hi,

    Sorry I was MIA yesterday, I had a migraine. My hormones may be doing something. Fingers crossed it's good and not bad. I usually get migraines after af.

    BT this morning, hopefully results will be conclusive. I'm having lunch with my friends from work, I'm still on maternity leave so looking forward to seeing some different people. We are having some work done to the front of our house - cement driveway and some landscaping(driveway is dirt). It looks like a bomb site. I'll be so glad hen it's done!

    @tuxcat- sorry your cycle has definitely concluded. I'm glad you have a plan to move forward though. I hope it all goes smoothly from here!
    @Tahli - big hugs on the loss of your fir baby đŸ˜¢
    @apples - the stuff ups with your embies sounds really incompetent. I hope you get to the bottom of it and they fix their issues without stuffing you around further. Fingers crossed for you!

    thanks for that. On the genea price list it has 2 figures, one is with top hospital cover (for the donors IVF cycle) and the other is no/limited cover so I was assuming it does cover something - its 1200 if theres none/limited. Im just going to assume she has none anyway, just frustrating that we've been paying the top cover for a couple of years and get nothing really out of it. Still have to pay a 500 excess. Phi is such a rort

    @Billie2 - have you been tested for blood disorders that may have contributed to your haemorrhage? I ask because I am borderline for a blood disorder that means I'm a bit of a bleeder ( Von Willebrands Disorder, in the old test I have it but the new 'gold standard' test I don't). I had a haematoma and haemorrhaged for about 4 weeks with pregnancy #9 which ended with missed miscarriage and a d&c. I am at increased risk of it happening again. I also haemorrhaged badly and needed multiple transfusions with DS' ceaser so it is worth knowing if you have an issue so you and your health providers can be prepared. Some disorders or levels within the disorder also require medication. I do acupuncture regularly, there is not much you can do for prevention but acupuncture is supposed to be good for circulation etc and I think it's helped me.

    Good luck with your natural cycles! DS was natural conception during a break between OI cycles(Christmas New Year), I was 42.
