    @Butterfly39, our donor was 26. She had donated once before, that resulted in a twin pregnancy and also had two kids of her own. She wasn't our first choice and we had a few false starts with other selected donors. She actually stepped in when our first choice had been found to have a really low amh and hence was probably facing fertility issues herself. She was a first-timer and I had requested they test her AMH.

    The FS over there recommended to keep age at 27 or under. It is still a game of luck but the odds are much better with younger eggs. We fluked upon some fertile goddess who blessed us with 22 blasts. Her previous cycle had had 12 eggs and 6 fertilise. We could have never expected the kind of result we had. We were just incredibly lucky.

    As a new Mum I can tell you that any worries about whether you will love the child the same go out the window when they come into your world.

    Exactly. I must always have a backup plan. It gives me something to focus on when I don't have success. I hate to think how I'll be when I run out of backup plans :0.
    To be honest I keep talking about getting too old but I mainly feel that way because dp is 45 and it's more a case of 'we' are getting too old. If he was younger than me I'd probably keep going and go to SA if need be. He will want to stop trying after these embies are all used up.

    @Petal40 I am so sorry. I hope everything goes smoothly tomorrow and you get some answers from the tests. None of us deserve this.

    We need some better news on this thread.
    @Butterfly39 sounds like it's worth giving it another shot. I've had 1 good one in about 80 eggs so it might still be floating around in you waiting to be plucked out
    South africa sounds like a great option however. I might go down that route one day if I can't find a known donor and if my partner agrees to doing DE. Can I do it without him knowing somehow? On the sly like?

    We are thinking of moving to the 'burbs and I am hoping that I can persuade him to do the DE option when we have so much more space. Thats my plan. Its a crap one but its all I have.

    Bongley my hubby took a while to come around to DE - probably about a year. I just kept talking about it and slipping it into conversation. I outlined the statistics to him - men seem to like percentages. My chances of a positive w/ OE were about 5% with donor eggs about 70% with a double transfer.

    thanks @emski72 I have been slipping it in (so to speak ) for a while. I guess I'm not really pressing him hard in case he says an outright no. So just gently, gently right now while we do one or two last cycles. Whenever it is the three of us and we're having fun and life is easy I think, we'll be fine (and I know we will be) Then we see someone who has a newborn (and there are pa-lenty around at the moment in his family!) or we watch our son playing with his cousins and how he adores them and we both get really clucky again.

    *sigh*
