    Ahhh, I welled up! I'm so thrilled for you @Caesardust. Is that Table Mountain in the background? Details, details?! I can't wait to see your wedding photos...you in a long flowing dress, handsome DH and your prominent baby bump. Forever more, you'll always have an extra special link to Cape Town. Happy days.

    @Blossom74 How many days until your AF is due exactly? As the girls have mentioned, you usually sync up by using the pill.

Have you done a nurses interview with the clinic? We got all this info at ours except that I was already on the synarel as I need to be on it for min 6 weeks

    just to add that the whole idea is that you are a few days ahead of your donor so that any time she is ready to go you will be too. This is for a fresh cycle.

    I just had the phone call from the clinic. My donor had her BT this morning so we'll know where she is at by late this afternoon. My personal opinion is that we are going to have a cycle clash - I am CD16 today and will get AF in around 12 days time. My donor usually stims for 2 weeks but her cycle is not adjustable as she has the Mirena in for PCOS. My cycle IS adjustable but they are talking about doing a freeze-all now because our dates are out of whack.

    Both my donor and I want to avoid a freeze all. For a start, it's an extra cycle cost. It also requires me to fly up twice instead of once. So we are going to push for a fresh cycle even if it means waiting a month or so to synch us up. This is why I called them a week ago - we needed to sort this out, and if they'd responded they could have put me on something then.

    At what stage do you usually start taking Progynova?

    I guess I'll know more after my donor's BT results come in....

    @Blossom, can't remember exact day but usually start prognoyva not long after stopping the pill, Monash staff can a bit lax sometimes, I flipped my lid when they tried to make mine a freeze all cycle.
    They have obviously dropped the ball me thinks,

    Best to speak to Dr Ongs staff ( not Monash) or the practice manager.
    I've had my fair share of issues with Monash, feel free to pm me if needed X

    Ladies I am looking at how much money I will need to save for project sibling next year. The options I am looking at are:
    FET with our untested frosties with Genea
    DE in Aus or
    DE OS.

    DH won't go to SA so that's out and I know what the US costs but what about Greece and Czech republic? I am guessing airfares and accomodation would make it pretty exy?
    Also has anyone done an FET with Genea? I don't want to contact them myself yet because I am not sure that's what I want to do (low chance of success) but may try if it's not going to be too expensive.
    Also, this may be a silly question, but do low cost clinics do donor cycles here? From reading what you ladies have written it seems just as expensive to do DE here as OS. I am just wondering if there is a way around that.

    Thanks hon, will do. I guess the first step is to figure out where our donor is at since she doesn't get traditional cycles. She's with me on this though - we both want to do a fresh cycle so they are going to have to find a way to make it work, even if that does mean a little bit of a delay.

    @Blossom74 Progynova on the first day of your treatment cycle, so the first day of your period, to start building up your lining. Can your ED go on the pill now to sync up with you instead, if she's ahead of you? Just a thought. I guess you'll know this arvo. Exciting!

    Sh!t blossom its pretty crappy that they haven't teed all this up before now, bad form. I was going to say you could do a freeze all, but obviously with having to fly there its not an easy work around. See what they say when the bloods come back.

    @faithandhopellove Genea FET cycle is:
    FROZEN EMBRYO CYCLE ($4155.00)
    Breakdown of above;
    Frozen Embryo cycle fee $3495.00
    Embryo Transfer $660.00 (Depending on private health cover)
    Medicare claimable cycles Rebates –
    Fresh Recipient Cycle/Frozen Embryo cycle $869.40 to $1582.95

    thats copy and pasted from my de cycle info - so i guess if you have phi it'll be around 2-2.5k oop

    @Blossom74 mines slightly different to the progynova, Im doing Ethinyl Estradiol tablets which Im guessing is the same principle. I start them as soon as bloods are baseline and I also stop the synarel at that point. Im guessing you cant start until your hormones are baseline?
