Hi gals, @tuxcat & @emski there used to be an IVF warriors thread here too that died off, I think it has been replaced with this 40+ thread
has anyone heard from @Fudge09? she was due to have a transfer I think?
@Leisylou take a breather, from the sound of it the last cycle knocked you onto your butt, I would have thought wazza would try a more gentle approach but go with his suggestions and if it doesn't work out next time maybe think of changing clinics? Always good to get a second opinion.
As for overweight egg donors I'm really not too concerned, I think its more of an environmental issue. I know it can be genetics but I think the obesity problem is a social one, otherwise the rates would stay the same over the years. I was a bit of a boofer in my student years with bad food and booze and also when I had my kid (for much more understandable reasons!) I put on weight but I've shed back to a good weight now.The only thing I am really concerned about with a donor is any serious mental or physical diseases...and that we have the same values and get on with each other.
AFM Speaking of gambling with donors. I have had another potential donor pop up. A lovely lady from Tasmania. So, we are chatting. She has donated before and the tassie clinic is very (VERY) affordable and she sounds like she will be ready in the next couple of months. So we are chatting. I will call IVF Australia about my other friend tomorrow (the one who won't be able to do it for 3 to 10 months) but the Tassie lady might be the way forward. More hard decisions.. but its so nice to have choices after turning down the NZ lady. I would really recommend anyone to check out 'Egg Donation Australia' website and facebook page, its a whole new community. If I can get some donors interested in me (as I have a kid) then you guys would sh!t it in.... you just have to sound positive, be very chatty and active on the site and I know you can all do that
I don't necessarily mean for you gals that have already planned your way but for anyone reading this thread.
@BlondeinBrisvegas yes, men aren't in the thick of it like us ladies and so we get lumbered with the stress of it all and there is nothing they can do to 'fix it'. Its a strong couple that goes through this sh!te alright.
