    Dgl... thanks for your story - I think I'm going to need to keep reading things like that. My EDD is 27 August, but due to the immune drugs I'm taking my immune specialist says she's more likely to come about 38 weeks, so more likely around 13th August.

    Great to hear from you dgl! My little one is 9 months as well. They grow up so fast x

    Bertie I had many panic attacks while pregnant freaking out the my DH wouldn't cope and leave me, that I would resent the baby cause it wasn't 'our' baby and that it would all turn to ****. But everything is fine 😄 I do still think about the donor and one day would love to meet him to thank him for changing our life. In ways we are just like all other parents but still different. It's normally to have all these thoughts I think

    Two Souls.... yes, I'm sure we're going to all be over the moon when she's here. I know that I'll always feel a little different to others who haven't been through what I've been through, but I'm sort of coming to realise that lots of people have lots of things / issues in their life, that this is just "my" thing to deal with and that it will be all alright :-)

    Hi all

    My DD is now 21 months. Where has the time gone? It's hard to imagine when you are pregnant that the donor thing will fade in importance, but it will. In a day to day sense it just isn't even in my thoughts. There has never been any question that she is DH's. To see them together is so great and I couldn't even contemplate having a different child.

    Occasionally I think about it, when people ask who she looks like or comments that she is just like DH, in ways that aren't genetically possible. But really that is rare and not an issue.
    @dgl you are brave. We are absolutely done with 1. No way am I going through another round of IVF or the chance of a pregnancy like that again.

    Good luck with the rest of the pregnancies.

    Default Donor sperm

    Twosouls: u have just spoken my mind. I read positive stories from donor conceived children. But most of them seem to have divorce parents. It makes me wonder if the husband couldn't cope with it in the end. DH was fairly sad when we broke the news to our parents about the donor and the pregnancy recently. He is still sad about not being able to give me a baby.

    I told DH that I am done with stim. I can't imagine myself going through this ever again. The whole process is mentally exhausting. For now, I am just fx the little one keeps growing to term.

    Bb I think we will always be sad about it. It's something that is always there in the back of my mind. I'll always wonder what would of been. I am internally grateful for the family I have and wouldn't change it for the world. I asked my DH if there was a new procedure out tomorrow and he could have his genetic child would he do it? And he said no way. He has a child and wouldn't want his own now.

    I think having another child is very important to me. I want my ds to be able to fully relate to someone. To have someone to talk to about this, to go through this journey with, to compare himself with. I hope I am able to provide this for him. We have talked about maybe fostering children as well.

    But we will wait and see. All talk of cycling again is on hold till they can get my thyroid sorted out. It's very frustrating.

    The 9 months certainly has gone quick! And I didn't think that if want to do it all again either. But I'm exactly like you twosouls - I want my ds to have a sibling exactly like him so that he can relate and they can talk about if and they can have each other's back. I don't know if I'll be able to give him that but I think I'd like to try. My brother and I are really close and I would love for ds to have something like that too.
    As for thinking about the donor - yes it's in the back of my mind. But day to day it really is almost a non-issue. A few days ago DH told me he couldn't love him anymore than he does even if it was biologically his. I think his being comfortable and happy with it has a lot to do with me being happy with our decision...
