You are lucky that your partner is younger than you, but mine is now 45 and I just don't want him being 48,49,50 with a new baby. I know it happens all the time, but it just doesn't feel right to me. Plus, I really need a holiday and Capetown and a safari or two sounds like just the ticket. It really looks beautiful. What is the turnaround time roughly for an Australian donor ?
    Well, number 1 reason is I'd like to find a known donor. Also its something I can do now, I probably shouldn't while I'm still trying with my OE but the chances of me landing a donor so soon are pretty slim. I've been advertising and chatting people up for a few weeks, figuring this cycle will be a washout. Plus I am ready to jump ship if someone chooses me.
    As for how long, I have no idea. Some people land a donor in a few weeks, others are still looking after a year but looking at the successful profiles it looks like maybe around 6 months?
    I'll try that until I get fed up (in two weeks ) and then probably try the OS option, I've heard some ladies can find donors happy to be known to the child when he/she turns 18. If THAT doesn't work then we will go with anonymous.

    @Bongley and @leyshoja how are your DHs feels about ED? As my cycle was yesterday canceled, again, the only way for us is ED. I know i will go and try again next month but FS said chances are less than 5%. My DH can't get his head around it (including finances). So it could be end of the road for me 😟

    @Luckyme1 Crinone/pessaries never stopped AF for me either. Only Pregnyl has, same as @Chiefsgirl. As the other Girls have said, it does hold it off for some women and not for others.

    @MaxKat Hope you've gotten some good ideas for protocols Luv from the other thread Are you making a plan??
    @Bongley the emby is hatching today Luv!!

    @leyshoja Stop it Luv!! 7dpo indeed!! I'm hoping you get some implantation cramps happening in the next few days (I had them on 10dpo really bad like AF). The "Lavvy Lurking" could be side effects still at this point as it's a bit too early to be doing that just yet @ 7dpo IMO. Bring on the sore boobs and at least a squinter on Friday!!!

    AFM: RE Agent rocked up at 9am and all passed muster for the inspection She took photo's for the owner and is organising a blind for one of the kitchen windows where the sun comes belting through every morning. So frigging hot!! Will be lovely for the few days of winter we have here!! She's also organising to get someone out to give a quote regarding a flooding issue we have under the house. Every time we even get a half decent fall or rain, part of under the house floods FFS's!! We can't utilise the space and have to stack everything or move it when we know rain is coming. I'm also concerned about wha that would mean for home/contents insurance..i.e not getting a pay out if we needed to claim as it's a "pre-existing" thing???

    Told the RE back in Jan about it and have sent photo's to them when the place was in full flood. Owners came out on the Aus day weekend to have a look for themselves at the prob as it was flooded then (we were at my sisters for a family get together) and still nothing's been done despite the fact it's flooded a good 3 or 4 times since and I keep telling them every time!!

    The Property Manager said they didn't know about the issue when they took the house on but she did say the owners did which is what I suspected and told the other RE Agent back in Jan (Property Manager was on holidays) exactly that, the owners must've known about it as it happens every time it rains virtually!! We just want the issue fixed asap!! Not sure what our rights are if they don't fix it??

    Property Manager said the owners didn't think it was a prob that could be fixed which is BS as I'd already spoken to the plumber that came out a couple of months ago to repair the shower head and he told me it can be fixed and what to do to fix it which I relayed to her this morning. Can't be fixed my ar*e!! Anyhoo shall see what the outcome is and how long it takes before this so called quote gets done!!

    Hope you're all having a lovely day thus far Ladies!!
    Yes i read lots of good stuff there. Very informative. I have left msg for FS to reconsider meds if i go next month again. But nurse doesn't think he will. I'm not sure what else to do. This is my second clinic/FS and i font know where else to go for '3rd' opinion.

    @MaxKat Could you afford to come over here and see Wazza?? Get on the cancellation list and get in quicker. He does remote Cycling with his Ladies all the time Luv. Oh no, I hope it's not the end of the road for you

    Why won't your FS at least change your drugs or protocol even a little bit?? What have you just done drug/protocol wise?? FFS's tell him this is your last shot and if you have to walk away you want to do so knowing you tried everything including different meds/protocols!!!

    So sorry @MaxKat my counselor said 5% to me too. I have been priming my partner for about a year. He has come around in just the past few weeks as he has realised that my eggs probably just won't make it. All his siblings are dropping sprogs at the moment too so he is surrounded by newborns at family gatherings. Also, we went to the counselor after xmas and discussed donor eggs and I think that made it a more serious proposition for him.

    @leyshoja yes I hadn't considered the issues with an older partner. That makes it so much harder too There are ladies on the ED forums that are up to 50 yrs old. Good on em I say but it does come down to personal preference (and if you have good knees).

    Oh @maxcat it's hard isn't it... My partner is a bit of a special case. He just wants me to be happy. Of course it will still be his so that makes it easier for him to accept, but he's sad for me I think. If it wasn't his baby genetically he would not be interested because he just doesn't want to have kids that badly. Getting any verbal feelings out of him is like getting blood out of a stone mind you, so I can only deduce from the very few things he's said about it that if its what I want then he's happy to watch porn every so often to help me get it lol. I truly believe that if I carried and gave birth it will be the same as if it were my egg. It will be sad to not see some of my traits but that's just me being selfish. It's a small sacrifice. There are only two options in my mind. 1 don't have a baby. 2 have a baby through whatever means you can. Better to have a baby in a 'non ideal' scenario than to have none at all.

    Hard to imagine being 50 and pregnant. I think you'd need a good back as well as knees. I often wonder if the recovery of your body is much worse as an older mother ie does all the skin eventually shrink back or not even close.

    BTW @maxCat did you know that at this age, even though your chances of successful IVF are around 5%, the chance of falling naturally is about that too. So I've been led to believe. That's why I stopped doing IVF with my own eggs and was going to try naturally while on the donor waiting list.

    This is pretty much what my partner said to me when he agreed to try DE
