Being able to visit my folks would be a massive bonus as they haven't met my son yet and I just won't be able to afford another OS trip for another few years. Plus a long haul flight with a toddler is not something I want to be doing very often, ha! Otherwise I would LOVE to go to SA.

    Speaking of going down that road, I jokingly asked my partner if I could post an ad for a donor and he said yes! I was totally shocked. We found out two weeks ago his brother is having a second child and that hit him harder than I realised. So ad posted! Excited but also quite wary of how long this next step will take.
    Of course. I didn't mean to talk you out of Prague at all. I have read both threads here and both are very positive. I thought to pick them for the same reason, to go home but after i mentioned ivf to my mum, all hell broke loose. So another reason to go to SA for me. Not there yet for DE, but being pessimistic, it will become the only option next month.

    @MaxKat What happened with your mum!? I won't be telling my mum about DE. She suffers from vascular dementia and schizophrenia so I think it would all be too confusing for her.

    @Bongley i think it must be the age thing. She is 76 and thinks ivf is against nature. She tells me i will have disabled kids, etc. And she told me not to talk about it to family and friends. So i didnt. Nobody except one friend and you guys knows what i been going through. I think she is sort of embarrassed by it. Don't get me wrong, i looove my mum, but get teary not having anybody to talk to. I have mentioned to her that I'm doing last cycle as even second FS doesn't see the point continuing. Every time we speak on the phone she brings it up. Maybe in this case is good we leave so far away.

    @MaxKat oh no, that's awful for you. I just read what dolce and gabbana have said about ivf kids too. Honestly, I don't even know how to respond. My mum and dad are of that generation too, pretty racist and homophobic. I don't really know if they have a problem with ivf and I don't think I want to!

    Know the feeling MaxKat and Bongley. My mum is super supportive about ivf. BUT I can't tell my Dad about it, even though he's been supportive with other things in my life, I know some of the things that go on in ivf would conflict with his religion. When it comes to selecting out trisomy embryo's or terminations later on if results are bad from harmony tests etc I would just not go there with him. It's not worth the conflict. He warned me a couple of years ago I was too old to try and have a baby and questioned me about what I would do about downs syndrome! Think I diverted the conversation somehow. As long as we have some people, friends or siblings to talk to, we'll get through it.

    @Skyler thanks. Yes must be hard for your mum too not being able to share it with him.

    I just wonder how hard it is for people to understand the ache we feel to hold child in our arms. Whether ivf, DE or adoption. We should not be judge but praised for the strength we have to be able to get through all of it. And i understand people got their own reasons.

    Sometimes its better not to say anything. Well that's what i been doing for last 2 years.

    It's crap parents aren't more supportive. I'm from the UK and I think they're quite anti it over there. For whatever reason it's not readily available. (I think archaic NHS), and adoption much easier.

    Feel much better this morning after a long sleep. So glad egg pick up is on a Saturday.

    Lucky, I've totally misunderstood what you're doing this cycle. You've been on clomid right? Now you're getting egg pick up? I wasn't aware there was such a method, well I've learnt something. Good luck with it. For some reason I thought you were doing a FET. And glad you're feeling better.

    I meant to say egg transfer. I'm on Clomid to ensure I ovulate. Not sure why they have to count my follicles yesterday. I guess to ensure I'm ovulating.
