    MyHeart, sorry you didn't get the result you were hoping for. I really hope that your one embryo is the golden one, but please remember that if it isn't that is not the end of the road. There are plenty of options for you in SA should you choose to go that way.

    Cloggy, are you back from your trip? I hope things are ok.

    Tittle - Lol....my boss gave Jesse the Qld jersey much to DP's horror. He also received a Blues jersey from a dear friend, however, those photo's are quite blurry.

    Sunny - Absolutely it was a shame I did not find this forum when I was planning my Cape Town trip. It would have been fantastic to catch up with others travelling this same road. I remember at the time during the whole process of planning and going there I felt like I was the only person in the world doing this so it would have been wonderful to have met up with you all...

    Sunflower - I posted about my experience with a twin pregnancy a few pages back in response to Myheart's question so have a look. Of course there is a bit more worry with a twin pregnancy but I had no problems at all. I hope it is the same for you too so do enjoy this most wonderful experience and I look forward to hearing your updates.

    Myheart - Like those earlier, hang in there. Our donor only produced 5 eggs and I felt like the sky had fallen in but we got twins from the only two eggs we got. Fingers crossed for you.

    KLM I do know what vegemite is though I don't like the taste too salty for me! I have actually been to Oz Sydney, Melborne & Tamania and enjoyed all 3

    Sunny adorable thanks for sharing the pic!

    Myheart all it take is one! Fingers crossed for you!

    Sunflower yes I think the donor is very important it seems CFC and most docs there are all good so I think a lot comes down to the donor. I would like someone with good health and my hair/eye color & height or at least some combo of them & prior pregnancies. DH thinks we should focus more on someone with prior pregnancies. He has different hair & eye color from me so who knows what our baby will take on but if we pick someone without either my hair or eye color then its very unlikely the baby will have any of my characteristics....

    To those of you with successes I have a question for you, did you go with a proven donor ie one with prior pregnancies? Tried to look thru the threads to find out the success rates for those using completely new donors versus donors who have been pregnant before but couldn't come up with much. Also any thoughts on Dr. Le Roux versus Dr. Wiswedal? Did you stick with a donor that had your eye & hair color?

    CAmom just a heads up when looking for your donor. After our first failed donor cycle where we chose an unproven donor we became quite certain we wanted a donor who was 'tried and tested'. We ended up asking our agency for recommendations reducing our criteria down to just age (under 25), good health /family health history and proven donor with live birth + extras in the freezer. We had decided our goal was to be parents so made the big decision not to worry about physical features. The profiles we got sent to us were all donors we had ruled out because their profiles hadn't been updated. In our case our new donors profile showed no donations but had intact done 3 very successful ones.
    So my advice to you would be to ask lots of questions of your agencies, they can and do provide a wealth of info, CFC can also back up this info with their own cycle information. The added bonus for us is that our new choice has a resemblance ...

    CAmom, completely understand our donor does have similar hair colouring and height to me. She does have blue eyes and both hubby and I have hazel/brown but both have a parent and sibling with bright blue so we were not too concerned about eyes. Our priority was proven with live births and our donor though a little older, 30 had 3 successful proven cycles out of 5 donations, including a set of twins. The only down side for us was she was a casual smoker but she did agree from when we chose her to stop for the 2-3 months while preparing and cycling. Hubby carries a cystic Fybrosis gene (resulting in his azoospermia, missing vas deferen) so we needed extra tests done to make sure she did not carry any CF variations which thankfully she didn't. Agree with blinky ask the agencies and cfc for there cycle results, they are happy to share. Saying that every cycle does and can vary, our donor actually produced the least amount of eggs in our cycle but I still got 2 perfect blasts (and a positive with twins) and and one to freeze. We also chose dr Le Roux and was extremely happy with him, we both really liked him and found him easy to talk with, very professional, honest and just felt we were in the best hands. I cannot comment on Dr W as we did not meet him.

    Thanks amethyst, I did re read your comments and other than the all day nausea I currently have I do pray the rest goes smoothly like you. I too have read all about the possible difficulties that can be experienced and they are a little scary but I'm currently struggling most with the mental side of things as I miscarried at 10 weeks and I just need to get past this barrier. Taking one week at a time is good advice plus I have to keep telling myself that I cannot compare this pregnancy as from word go everything with this one has been as it should be and of course with proven, good younger eggs.

    Hi ladies
    I did find those comments interesting...i asked baby2mom for any details on previous cycles (after we had already chosen the donor) but she said they are 'not made available'...so we didnt get any info other than what was on her profile 'Good quality donor eggs in previous donation resulting in pregnancy.'

    The clinics wont know who the donor is until she is booked in? Not sure how you get info from them before committing to a donor?
