    thanks @Chiefsgirl do you mind me also asking if there was anything about the paperwork i.e the contract, consents etc that you felt you needed to amend? I'm a bit overwhelmed by the huge about of paperwork, I know it's there for a reason but would appreciate some help on navigating the pile of paperwork..

    We didn't ask for anything to be changed. We both read everything and wrote down our questions then came back together and went through all the questions - whatever each other couldn't answer we emailed Adrian and she explained it to us. There are a lot of papers, but when you start reading them it becomes quite clear.

    Hi @HopefulSS! Welcome to this thread! I hope you have found it useful and the girls here are so awesome and supportive... Not to mention a wealth of knowledge....everything from the clinic to the process to where to do in Hawaii and , of course, the emotional roller coaster.

    I found Adrian very responsive and the nurses at the clinic incredibly personable. I never once felt like they questioned why I was doing this. They just supported me and made me feel it was the right decision...and it felt genuine.

    The only thing that sucked for me was the crappy aud exchange rate! That was depressing...so I hope it will be better for you!

    I didn't change anything in my contract but did go over it carefully. There is a lot of paperwork. Just read one at a time and next thing you know...all done!

    Good luck!!!!

    Hi @HopefulSS welcome to this thread. Exciting to have more people as there aren't many of us. Honestly it is very over whelming with all the paperwork but it needs to be for legal reasons. No one wants any loop holes for any reason to come back at you or the donor. Personally we don't want any contact with the donor so it works for us.

    You won't regret doing it through conceptions. I'm obviously still here in Hawaii so I don't have an outcome yet but everything looks positive so far.

    Any questions please just ask. When are you looking at going? Have you chosen your donor yet?

    @Lastchance75 @MustRemainPositive @Chiefsgirl - Thanks for the words of encouragement, really appreciate it, it's great to have support on this with people that are going through the same thing...

    i'm yet to chose a donor, and would love your thoughts on the extent to which it is important to select someone who has had a successful cycle in the past with recipient becoming pregnant? or did you select donors regardless of this cycle history? thanks so much, look forward to hearing what you say

    My donor had donated before but there hadn't been a transfer when I chose her (privacy reasons meant I didn't know why). She had 3 children of her own though so I took that to be a proven donor for us. She doesn't really look like me too much, but had a good medical history, was slightly taller (I'm short) and slimmer, so I took that into account as giving bub the best chance possible At a healthy and happy life (I hate being short and on the heavier side). DH is dark hair, dark eyed and 6'2 so chances of our baby being a blue eyed blonde like me we're going to be slim anyway, and if Bub is tall then it's not out of place!

    That being said she had donated 30odd eggs before and then we got 60 from her so we were very lucky with our choice!

    Hi @Chiefsgirl we are doing a double which scares the hell out of me but we have spent so much money to get here we want to make sure we have a good chance. Obviously Pgd tested means we have a good chance but people have transferred normal embies that still haven't taken. As you know nothing is a guarantee in this IVF world.
