    @Skyler AF you biatch!!!! Fkng BOO!! Am sorry Luv As you say, you can get on with organising the other stuff and get the show on the road!! Wonder if there's a specific CD to have the SVG done??

    @Leisylou this month for you Luv!!! Hopefully you won't need to see WDA in June, but better to have the Plan B in place just in case.

    FYI...Although I have online dated in the past (and met one of my great loves that way), I actually met my DP through a fellow co-worker in one of my previous positions My colleague was a friend of DP and he practically set us up!!

    Bugger Skyler :-( was hoping she'd stay away... At least you're moving forward again now. Good luck with it all.

    I just logged onto the site that you went through @emski72 and that you're looking at using @leyshoja and I did one quick search and one donor jumped out at me because her baby pictures and toddler pictures are almost identical to mine! OMG is that a sign? Anyway, I'm not ready yet, but it was a bit freaky that I did a massive double take when I saw her profile. If I did DE I was of the thought that I would want for the child to be able to find their bio-mum oneday if they really wanted to - so I wasn't sure about anonymous. I definitely didn't want a known donor that was in our lives, but just the opportunity for contact at a later date. I think I need to do some research into that before going any further. I'll save my ruminations for the DE threads rather than here :-)

    Wow, that's weird. It'd be interesting to see adult photos, wouldn't it ! None of the donors on any of the sites looked anything like me, but I was a surly little cow of a child so that's probably a good thing lol. I did see several that looked like DP's family members and the lady I chose is one of them.
    That's interesting that a few of you met your other halves using online dating. I've only ever heard horror stories from people and thankfully I have never had to use it. I met my DP when I was drowning my sorrows at the local Leagues club only a couple of weeks after my ex hubby told me it was over. He was just a lovely guy that was nice to talk to and didn't make any moves on me, just told me lots of interesting stories about his life and took my mind off all my woes. It was a big coincidence we even met as I hadn't been there in about 10 years and neither had he and neither of us ever went to those type of places. Even stranger is that we both went to the same primary and high schools but he was 2 yrs above me, and we lived within 3 blocks of each other for almost our entire childhood ! I guess it was meant to be. We finally found each other
    (shame it wasn't a couple of years earlier when I was more fertile...)

    @Leisylou, I saw on some profiles, but I can't remember which donor site, that there was a tick box for them to indicate that they would be receptive to contact down the track. So I guess some of them are not completely anonymous.

    Thats the one I would consider, although I had originally thought staying on the waterfront may be nicer. If we have a car I suppose it won't matter much?

    Yeah Blonde, I was basically set up with DH as well, friend of a friend. And that's the way I have mostly always met ppl. I've never done Internet dating. I don't use face.book or any of the other social media. Bubhub is my only real Internet thing other than online shopping!!!!

    Wow Leyshoja how lucky, the way you met DH. Did you tell him at the time that you were 2 weeks out of a marriage? Obviously it was meant to be. I kick myself because I did actually meet DH when I was young enough to have kids (34) but I never brought up the topic until just before we were engaged because I was worried about frightening him off. I always used to be careful not to push guys for commitment, marriage, babies etc in case they got cold feet. Perhaps I should have been more pushy But god am I glad I did not fall prego to one particular ex creep who cheated on me with a million other women. I would dread keeping in contact with him for life just because I had a child to him.......I often wonder if my blocked tube was caused by an evil std from him.

    @Skyler, yep he knew. I was a misery and me and his two mates discussed all our very recent marriage breakups for quite a while that night. Poor old dp was surrounded by recently dumped miserable people. I actually met them because his mate was trying to crack onto me lol but it became clear pretty quickly that I was broken and he gave up his attempts.
    I was more like 6 weeks out of marriage because my ex broke it to me then went on a four week charity ride, came back and still felt the same I was heartbroken and in no state for a new relationship but he just made me feel good (and not in a naughty way). He's just so calm and nice. I forced it to be a relationship for quite a few months because I was scared to be alone, but grew to love him thankfully.
    I was 40.5 then and told him I had been trying with ex hubby to fall pregnant and was super stressed about never being able to because it was way too soon with him and I was going to be too old later, so I froze eggs. He kept saying, that early in the relationship, not to worry about birth control and if it happened we would be ok but it was too soon. (Dammit hindsight). I was going to freeze a second lot after we had been together only 7 months then we decided we may as well just go for it and fertilise them. At least we've had all this time to be together and get to know each other I suppose but Ive had a gutful of trying now. I want to see him as a father.
    Agree it would be a nightmare to have a kid with someone who ended up being a loser. That life would be hard. Life now always seems better than life used to be I reckon. Every decision we make is the right decision at the time. I've always believed that.
    Enough waffle from me. Two days till poas.

    Yeah, I read about this a while back that one of the SA clinics did this and sent a couple of enquiries to the SA and Prague clinics but didn't they didn't answer my questions directly ie: can I choose from donors that will let their info be known to the kid when s/he turns 18. They just sent some information packs that said it was anonymous. :\

    If you find out any more @Leisylou I'd be interested

    two days and counting @leyshoja!

    Nurture in SA have the option on their profiles for the donor to indicate that should the current laws change would they be open to future contact... But only if the laws change.

    how are you doing @tuxcat? hope you are feeling better and that you are at home
    @Skyler oh bugger AF appearing I am trying to track my natural cycle and it's going to be pretty hit and miss for a few months I think. Thanks for the reminding about my plan B and C, sounds more hopeful when you put it like that Although really they are plan C and D Glad things are moving for you!
    @winsor glad you can get stuck into those 3 cycles, I heard them turning down a lady on the phone once as she was 44 I think and so would have been 45 by the time she got in. I felt sorry for her having to hear that but they did recommend some private clinics to her.

    hi @BlondeinBrisvegas good to hear it still happens in the 'real world' there are so many people who meet on line these days, thank goodness or I'd still be looking!

    No news from PD but its not been long. If she comes round fine, if not, I'm already over it, as @leyshoja says, onwards and upwards.
