Ann17. I think you said it all with regards to DE. We started out like that. Didn't want to think about or accept the DE option until every other option was exhausted. And that is normal. of course! We are so concentrated and focused on getting our bubbas genetically. It's only natural. But I am in the same boat. ..I have been on this long hard journey for a while now, and it seems, have been beating our heads against a brick wall with a low AMH of possibly 1 at the age of 40. That's the cards we've been dealt. So after one last try with Wazza (current cycle) we have come to the decision that we are good with DE if that's what it takes. Of course, there are so many issues and questions raised that comes with DE. But we're ready for it. And although, don't get me wrong, I am gutted that the bubba won't be half me genetically, I agree with the others that it will be my flesh and blood and upbringing and so many other factors that make that baby ours. My DH is adopted, and his upbringing , morals, mannerisms and even his laugh mirror his adoptive father. He is the most wonderful and kind man too. No genetics there.
So my question may be better suited on another thread, but has anyone on this thread done a donor cycle in Australia? (DE from friend In Australia) I'm trying to get an idea on cost AUS vs SA.
Micca- can you recall during your 2ww how you 'felt' before knowing about the bfp. As in any twinging, cramps, stabbing, tiredness. Did u have a feeling of bfp or no clue? I am in the 2ww and of course am racking my brains trying to recall how I felt on the bfns and even the bfp. Having some twinges similar to af symptoms, but not as 'deep'. ...
