Staceyma- I feel for you and am so sorry it did not work out this time. I read somewhere that if all else is ok, then donor eggs have a 50/50 shot each time. At some point the coin has to flip to the other side and I hope it does so for you next time. Don't lose hope.
Smika - congrats on your success. It is very good to hear.
Deb11-It is a good thread, isn't it. It has certainly helped me along. As for payment I paid CFC in two installments. First I paid by international bank transfer when the donor started seeing the FS (Oct). Since she was immediately available this was within 2 weeks of booking her through the agency. The second was paid by card, face to face when I got to the clinic (Nov/Dec). Best of luck on your journey
