    Miss Sagi, KMP, Emski - so EDSA came back to me with a very detailed profile, and I am now extremely happy with this new prospective donor!! So that's a huge relief, and they're now double checking timing with her - fingers crossed.

    But WOW, I am really surprised how much this knocked me off my feet! Have felt terribly fragile, vulnerable, shaky etc. since I found out about my original donor. I think it's a good lesson in how much of a roller coaster this while journey may be.... something you ladies already know! I find I get quite obsessive, and wish I could just 'chill' and take things in my stride more.

    Take care everyone,
    Kay

    Kay mine was found to be bipolar so I had to move very quickly to find a new donor.

    I thought I'd found mine with EDSA then her availability was very different to what her profile said (rather EDSA spreadsheet).

    I had to work with an availability window rather than 'any time' because of my work.

    Fingers crossed for you. Once it's done it's a relief but they have to pass medicals etc.

    Kay be prepared for a lot of uncertainty and worry ahead with hopefully a happy ending. Finding and locking in a donor took a lot of time for us and once that was done things got easier but then there were stresses with how the donor produced whether there would be anything to put back the 2WW etc. I am now 28 and a half week pregnant and being pregnant brings about all kinds of new and different worries so buckle your seatbelt for the long ride ahead!

    Blinky, congratulations on the good scan.
    Kay, best wishes for this new donor. I had no problems with Kimenthra. She was pretty good about communicating with me. I was not required to write a letter to my donor, but did give a heartfelt thank you in my thank you gift.

    AFM, I have been spotting for over a week. I went in for my 6 week scan and one solid heartbeat of 114 beats per minute. The dude came in at 6W1D and I was at 6W0D, so I am breathing a huge sigh of relief. One hurdle down. I am still spotting but my doctor is not too concerned. He could see the bleeding between the uterine wall and placental membrane (subchorionic hematoma), which I understand most of the February women had.
    I am taking it easy. A few people have said I am glowing, and tired. Which is all true.

    Canuck great news and a huge relief for you.

    All set for my morphology scan today....booked according to their requirements then told I'm 2 weeks early....which does not sit well with me. I'm very intolerant of fellow medical people dicking patients around. I also had yo work it out around other commitments and going away....and booked weeks ago. Last time they cancelled my scan half an hour before the appointment. Off to find a new clinic where the staff know what is going on and they at least call me by my name.

    Canuck it's always such a huge relief when you get to see the flicker of the heartbeat. Great to hear it's all on track 😊
    Rest up and I'm sure the SCH will clear up. I asked about ours at our scan the other day and she couldn't see any evidence of it anymore...

    KMP - wow! - id be finding a new place too. Mine asked to change our appointment time but gave us a weeks notice so we could plan for it. They also confirmed 2 days prior..

    Miss Sagi - you are so funny about being short and solid! I have seen all types of pregnant women (I think some people's faces really change shape during pregnancy!) and they are all beautiful. At the end of the day it's a very short 9 months - a drop in the ocean of an entire lifetime.

    In my first pregnancy I broke my leg at 8 months, so was hauling around my enormous belly on crutches - I looked ridiculous and people couldn't help staring. Not to mention the drama of labor with a broken leg...

    AFM, my new donor is locked in for August! I'm very excited and very relieved. In fact, I may even like her *more* than the original donor, so perhaps this whole hiccup was a good thing.

    Who else is aiming for August??

    Kay
