    Laned I have received a few letters like that from Wazza. Each time I bawled like a baby at his sincerity. I haven't called them to tell them about my MC yet. I'll talk to them when I book our next appointment to start again. It probably won't be until April/May next year. We want to sort out some financial stuff out first.

    He's funny like that. I rang from wa at work to tell him about my BFP and that I needed another script. His response " yeah well you got lucky".. Straight shooter.. I was very lucky indeed and he still called it as it was.

    Warren sure is blunt, no guessing where you stand with him.

    We caught up with Warren this week after our failed cycle. This cycle has confirmed we have a significant egg quality issue but luckily he thinks DH sperm are good enough to do the job.

    We have the option of another full stim cycle with growth hormone added but that is the only option to change things. Warren gives this less than 20% chance. He said that we should go into this knowing failure was a real possibility.

    We also discussed in great length donor eggs which he says will give us a 45-65% chance. My sister has offered and meets the criteria.

    I am an anxious person and find cycling a real struggle and we are really starting to think about using donor eggs. Our only reservation is the pressure it would put on my sister however he has witnessed mine and her best friends IVF journey so her offer is not naive.

    While DH feels very strongly about having a child who is biologically his I really don't feel strongly about it. I want a family and how I get it is not a major consideration to me.

    Mummymaybe - the issue of DE took me some time to get my head around, whereas DH was all for it. Having made the decision, I would not look back and if fact should have done it sooner. My body was responsible for growing nurturing and developing the most gorgeous and beautiful little fellow. I felt such a connection to him during my pregnancy, was so very protective of him and delighted in feeling him grow and move. I still have such an intimate connection with him and thank the universe every day for our amazing South African egg donor.

    I found this very apt poster yesterday. It is very prudent to your current considerations.

    Beautiful Laned. I feel the same way having used an ED.

    Mummymaybe: It will be your biological child and you turn on (express) the genetics so it is very much your baby no matter where the egg comes from. It is lovely having a special person help you get there, and makes the whole miracle that much more precious. I am now pregnant with my second child, and both children are from the same egg donor and are full siblings. I had 22 of my own embryos transferred into me before this opportunity came along and am very grateful for my angel egg donor. Wishing you success whatever path you take

    @milliegirl thank you, it is so nice to hear other people having such positive experiences with DE.

    @mummymaybe - wow I have caught up on the happenings and what a tough run. It's such a cruel cruel blow and so close to Christmas. Your sister sounds amazing- does she have kids of her own?
    That is truly the biggest gift. It would be a tough choice though- deciding to try one more cycle or going straight to donor eggs. Did he mention DHEA as well as GH? My specialist has vaguely mentioned egg quality issues for me and last cycle I was put on GH and whilst it didn't boost my egg numbers it did improve percentage fertilisation and it did produce two apparently perfect blasts so it's all food for thought. I'm going to try DHEA now before my Wazza appointment. I only mention it because we are the same age.
    I hope you are okay- this journey is a nightmare- I just want off the infertility rollercoaster.

    Sorry for my delayed response @Ducky01. I'm ok, still some tears and being with my insensitive MIL who has mentioned her desire for grandchildren 5 times in 2 days is unbearable.

    We really don't know what to do, I'm leaning more towards DE but it's hard to know. We are having a week away together once we survive Christmas so we will be able to chat about it and just be a normal couple for a little while.

    What is your next step?
