    I don't think so Chiefs unless you're planning on not telling any kids then I think you need to match your own blood type?

    Thanks ladies, we are definitely planning on telling any children we have so good to know it won't be a problem whichever one we choose. I just thought there was a problem with negative mothers and positive fathers?

    Chiefs.... no, I don't think the blood type plays any part like that. The only time it's important is when the mother is rhesus negative (like me), then towards the end of the pregnancy (about 28-30 weeks) then the mother has to have some injections (yah, like I haven't had enough injections already!!). It's something about when the baby is born some of the baby's blood "leaking" into the mother (or vice versa?). Must say, now you've jogged my memory about this, and since I'm almost 21 weeks now, maybe I should research this a bit more!!

    Thanks ladies!

    Another q! I'm looking at donors and they vary in age and whether they have donated. One I'm really drawn to is 30. She is currently in cycle so maybe not avail anyway. Get last two donations gave 15 and 20 eggs. Do you think 30 is too old? I am worried that even tho she might have a few eggs left quality might be waning?

    My next fav is also currently in cycle and then the next two haven't donated before.

    I know someone has to be brave and pick them first tho, so unsure!

    It's another $6kusd to do pgd in Hawaii, so not sure if the extra cost is worth it. Apparently it's not commonly done there.

    Chiefsgirl, I was advised to choose a donor under 27. Do you know if the 30yo's eggs resulted in a successful pregnancy?

    I wouldn't rule out donors who haven't donated before. Not sure if the US is like SA, but I was keen to use a new donor too and I was able to request that her AMH be tested. It cost me $60 or so. That was money well spent as it turned out that her AMH was really low for her age and we chose another donor who then gifted us with our beautiful little girl.

    Also, may be worth understanding the definition of 'proven' too. Does it just mean they've donated before? Or that they had eggs fertilised, or a pregnancy, or a live baby?

    Ok, I'm finally going to jump in to this thread. I didn't even think about asking about number of eggs @Chiefsgirl ! And good tip about the AMH test @MrsErinR. I will definitely request that if I end up choosing a non proven donor. I was wondering about the 'proven' part myself. Yes, they may have provided eggs, but how many pregnancies. I've very much gravitating to the ones with their own children.

    and what do they qualify as a pregnancy? postive BT? Heartbeat at first scan or live birth? Always ask CFC too Leyshoja if/when you choose a donor and ask about past donations... it can sometimes differ to what the agency says.
    My donor was 22 but had a 6 month old baby so that to me is proven. But they wouldn't know how she would respond to meds etc. so we were flying blind a bit in that regard.

    Also be aware that South Africa do not stim their donors like the US - it's very gentle in comparison so it's not uncommon to get 12 eggs, 6 fertilise, 2 to transfer and maybe 2 to freeze. You're not going to get 20+ eggs (unless you have a super donor like Mrserin... ).
    CFC also offer an egg bank back up which is a bit reassuring, should you get to SA and your donor has no eggs at pick up or if they stuff up their meds etc. CFC have a frozen egg bank you can dip into - the proviso is that if you do your cycle and get more than (I think) 15 eggs, you then donate them to the egg bank.
