View Full Version : Wanted: a 'good egg' with good eggs!
We are a happy, healthy, active and devoted couple in our 40s. Even though we married late, we thought we were still in there with a chance to have children. Conventional or unconventional, you name it we’ve tried it! Headstands to hypnotherapy; acupuncture to Amazonian concoctions; Cambodian blessings to Chinese herbs; ancient Muslim remedies to romantic weekends away. And, of course IUI to many unsuccessful IVF cycles. Despite our best efforts, we are left with an empty nest but a desire to fill it that’s as strong as ever. We are deeply aware of the hugely generous gesture it is to donate your eggs; but, if you are willing and we are successful, the child(ren) would be welcomed into a loving family with strong social values that is ready, willing and able to offer them a great start in life; they would also join a wider community of family and friends equally as excited to welcome them into the world. If you are under 40, have preferably finished having your own family, and are interested in donating your eggs we would be thrilled to hear from you. We will of course cover all related medical and travel expenses. Please PM me or write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org (email@example.com)

We are more than willing to consider a donor from inter-state, and would of course cover necessary travel costs.
Can't wait to hear from you!
Hoping you here from some wonderful woman soon goodegg.
Also about to (I think) start the search for a ED
Welcome to BubHub. I truly wish you all the best in your search for a donor:angel:angel. I have said it before to others, but I will say it again - BubHub is the place where miracles happpen & the most amazing support is provided.
I can truly relate to what you have been through in your efforts to conceive, minus the blessings of course. The closest I got was a tibetan singing bowl for calming, lucky charm bracelet, a fertility spell involving an egg and some seeds:laughing:, frog statues, visualization etc etc,.......but maybe the universe just takes its time and works in very mysterious ways....:yes:
Love your ad, but for a minute I thought I was reading about our journey
I think we could compare stories about Amazon vodka cocktails as well as all the other crazy stuff.
Glad you found your way here,
Best of luck,
Hi Leanne, Deb, and elwoodgal,
Thanks so much for all your messages.
Just when we thought we'd exhausted all options other than ED, along come the frog statues and fertility spells! The things we do... bashing our heads against a brick wall:banghead:
and Leanne - I wonder how many of us there are who have been madly (and dutifully) knocking back shots of vodka with that awful icky powder? There seem to be so many of us leading parallel lives.
Already glad to have found my way to this forum (for which I have baby4me to thank :thumbsup:- spotted a reference by you to bubhub on another forum) and I wish each of you all luck in your journeys.
Wow, I am famous at last - :laughing::laughing::laughing:
Seriously, glad that you found your way here.
Too right, you're famous, baby4me!:yes:
I can already see your cheer squad doing its stuff when the :bfp: comes through for you. There'll be a cast of thousands: :smiliedance::smiliedance::smiliedance::smiliedanc e: (and there'd be more if it weren't for the emoticon limit :-)
Lots of positive vibes to you,
We are such 'desperados' aren't we. I lost count of the well meaning advice I received whilst TTC.
I even had a Dr. (who should have known better) tell me to go home have a glass of wine & relax.
We had tried that for several years with no success.
Drinking those foul Chinese herbs, ugh!
We will try virtually anything b/c we have a dream. For some lucky couples it is a given that they will have children, a house etc.
And they do, excellent for them.
But for us with Infertility it is a struggle to acheive something that as we grew up we assumed was a given. This is what happened. We met someone, we form a relationship, create a home & then have children.
I got a dog.
Goodegg hoping a woman with 'goodeggs' can you assist you with your dream to become a family.
Mum to DD Donor Conceived wanting to do 'it' again b/c I have so much love to give.
Know what you mean. I gave up a stressful job to ttc, and that was several years ago now. And I still get told if I just relax, then it will just happen. One naturopath assured me when I started IVF that she was sure it would work because I was in better nick than anyone else she had treated - that was 3 long years ago... and I now have another naturopath. I know people mean well, and want to be encouraging, but if only they knew the pain of building up hope only to have it dashed on the rocks of a negative pee test.
A couple of friends of mine who have been on the IVF and ED treadmill for a while now want to write a book about all the 'bad' comments that they've encountered from friends and professionals. I reckon there's definitely a book in it.
Anyway, elwoodgal, I'm sure your time will come and so will mine - and all those other women out there who have made 2008 'their year'. Sending you lots of :goodvibes: and :babydust2:,
Hi there goodegg :wave:
I wanted to give you a 'bump'.
I hope you are having a fab weekend.
My DD is sleeping so I am surfing b/w bubhub & AED.
It is a beautiful day here in Melbourne. I have been doing the washing b/c I finally have a washing machine after 3 long weeks waiting for it to be repaired!
I hope you are staying positive.
Hi Goodegg :wave:
A bump from me too. BUMP :yes: There's a few comments we've had too through our IVF journey and I still cringe when I think about them.
Hope goodluck for you soon :wizard:
Thanks elwoodgal and tummymummy30 for the bumps.:yes: Yes, beautiful day here, but haven't done any washing yet. Did a big house clean yesterday, so feeling lazy for that kind of thing today. But have had a lovely swim this morning, and a long and lazy snooze this afternoon after a big dose of the Saturday paper. Staying positive, though meltdown moments creep up from time to time. You learn to live with them, I guess, and let's hope that it's not too long before we're looking back on these old bumps as we look down on our own new bumps:smiliedance:
Good vibes to you both :goodvibes::goodvibes: and to everyone else on the look out for an :angel:
Just thought to drop in and see how you are going. The waiting is really hard and unfortunately there is not much we can do about those melt down moments....boy do I have a lot of them!
Hoping your angel is close.
Take care and remember to be kind to yourself.
Thanks so much for checking in. We had a tough time earlier in the week. We had our last transfer with my eggs recently - I didn't say anything about it here because I was secretly hoping that if I said nothing about it and distracted myself with searching for an :angel: and with life in general, then the little embryo would defy the odds and stick. But not to be.:no: Still, no surprises there so we've picked ourselves up and are soldiering on.
And our fingers are crossed :fingerscrossed::fingerscrossed: that we will have good news on the ED front soon.
Hope all's well with you,
Sorry to here about your little embryo but glad you have picked yourself up, it hard sometimes to understand why things happen and you want to scream why me, but like you said we just keep on going and hoping for the best and that our angel will find us soon.
Wishing you all the very best in your journey.
Yeah, it's always hard to take esp. when you're saying that final goodbye to your own genes. Strange isn't it - we spend too much of our lives being self critical, but when it comes to the crunch, it's hard to let go of them. Still, I think we've already moved well and truly into the ED headspace and feel really excited by the possibility of dramatically increasing our chances to create our much longed for family.
So, together we keep the faith!:smiliedance:
Hang in there and don't lose hope.
Angels do exist:angel:and one will find you soon.
good luck with your quest - I hope you acieve your dream
it sounds so heartbreaking, the right person is out there for you - I hope you find them soon!!
wanted to pop in & say G'day.
I am sorry your last shot with your own eggs did not work. I remember on my last cycle anxiously waiting to see if my last embryo has thawed & survived. It did survive but it stayed at 4 cells & I can still remember my FS saying 'well, it is still alive'. Not very reassuring.
So throughout the 2WW I felt very negative & did not feel it was meant to be.
You can now move on to your next step with donor eggs. You gave it your best shot it did not work & now you need to move on to an option with higher success rates.
Fingers & toes crossed for you that you will find a compatible ED.
Mum to DD Donor Conceived. Looking for an ED to complete my family.
Just checking up on you, and I'm sorry to see you had some bad news last week.
On the other hand, I do hope this gives you some closure to now move forward with ED.
I'm glad to read you are excited with the possibility.
All the best,
Oh damn, I just did a long message to all of you and it vanished from the system...:geek: Got to get myself off to bed, and have a packed few days ahead, so will check in on Sunday/Monday and say hi. Thanks for checking up. Hope all is going well with you all. I'm fine, but life's feeling a bit hectic at the moment.
Hi Goodegg, just popping in to say gidday :wave:
Yes, I've had lots of trouble with my computer lately and wanted to do this to it too. :geek:
Hope you are okay.
Thanks for yours - and hope you're going well. Had a bit of time away from the computer last week, which was quite nice actually. This ttc process can take over your life somewhat, so it's good to stand back from it from time to time.
How are things with you? Sending good :goodvibes: your way,
Sorry to hear your last shot with your own eggs didn't happen :( I can't imagine how tough that was.
Wishing you all the best in your search for an ED - I hope it's a short journey with fantastic results :)
Hi goodie, popped in to give you a bump & to see how you are travelling?
Hi elwoodgal and Buzzy Bee,:wave:
Thanks for your messages. Have been a bit hopeless of late - hols, travel, work, adventures and not much time for checking in on the forum. I've had half any eye out, but am getting a bit frustrated with my dodgy satellite broadband connection:geek: (don't you love this emoticon?! - I think it's my favourite :yes:). Anyway, satellite broadband just ain't the real deal, and I find the detail on this and other forums a lot for my little plodder of a connection to download. Makes things slow, so I sometimes just give up. Hoping to get a better connection soon, which will make life easier.
Anyway, I'm still here and I hope you are all going well.
How frustrating! Nothing worse than when your internet connection plays funny-buggers. Hope u can get it sorted soon.
HI Goodegg, just thought I would drop by and see if you have any news re your Donor hunt? Here is some :babydust2: to help :D
Just dropping by to say hi goodegg,
Hope you get your connection sorted out,
And especially hope you have good news soon,
Hang in there,
Hi Buzzy Bee, Sunshine11, and Leanne,:wave:
Thanks all for your messages. Have been very uncommunicative of late - lots on. Just to update you, we've had a few 'nibbles' in response to our ad. Exciting, scary, daunting and very encouraging all at the same time. We're still in preliminary conversation, but we're staggered by the generosity of the women who have contacted us. Early days yet, and we're definitely keen to 'hasten slowly' - if it works, this is a decision with a lifelong impact and definitely not to be taken lightly from anybody's point of view, however 'truly madly deeply' we just want to get on with it.
Fingers crossed, and will let you know how we get on.
Just wanted to pop in and say good luck Good Egg:fingerscrossed::angel::babydust2:
Sounds very positive goodie. :)
I have my :fingerscrossed: & my toes for a compatible ED for you in the near future.
Fingers crossed Goodegg :fingerscrossed:
Great news you have had some contacts...
Exciting, scary, daunting and very encouraging all at the same timeI know what you mean !
Best wishes, Leanne
Yeah, I'm having this prob :geek: also!
good luck, Goodegg!
Oh that is fantastic news :)
I know you do sometimes get more responses to ads in Melbourne's Child, so hopefully they are potential donors who have been thinking about it for a while and know a bit of what is involved. MC ads sometimes attract a high rate of responses from people who want to help, but balk when they find out what is involved, but hopefully that is not the case this time. :sunshine:
Hi gals, :wave:
Aren't you all lovely!:yes: Will let you know how we get on once we're a bit further down the track.
