    @leyshoja - I still have some frosties left, so will transfer them, and if no luck, then move on to DE.

    It's ok to question the decision.... Many get cold feet before important decisions...questioning important decisions is the mark of a wise person. It's funny, I work with babies all the time, I would happily take any of them home, they are all so warm and smell so good . You sound confident Leyshoja, you might just be grieving the loss of the dream of a genetic child. None of this is easy but be strong, feel the fear and apprehension, yet follow your heart and you will find happiness always.

    And yes, you're carrying the baby of the man you love and without you, he could never have that child, and without you, that child could never exist. It's your womb that gives life. Look at the big picture. I am so happy you found a donor, what an amazing gift for a child that will be loved beyond belief.

    You hit the nail on the head @Butterfly39 - I'm mourning the loss of my genes.
    Here's some positive new though, just got the call - all 5 are good quality, so I'll end up with 4 good frosties as well (tfer 1 today at 11.30)

    @leyshoja

    Yeah, it is the loss of a dream. It does take time to process the 'whys and what ifs'... Life takes some strange twists and turns doesn't it.... Still envious of those people who go down the pub one night and come back home UTD . It's often a huge issue for them too though, oh the irony.

    Well now it looks like you have a bit to play with some promising eggies there and especially with all those frosties! Woo! Excellent news!! Transfer is today? Well then, break a leg honey, the show must go on. Good luck, xxx

    Good luck for transfer today leyshoja, we have a catch up in Melb if youre located here for those up the duff with donor eggs, if you're interested, we figure it will be good for kids conceived in this way to know other kids in the same situation as time goes on

    I think the Brissy girls on the SA thread are talking about doing it too, will keep you posted.

    Hey @emski72, do you ever get to find out who your SA donor is or meet them, or is it completely anonymous forever ?
