    Default Egg Donation in South Africa #9

    Wow congrats to all!
    So much good news 😀😀
    I think CFC are pretty amazing actually.
    Have been following quietly 15 weeks with twins all fine with them - last scan they are already at umbilicus boxing each other and kicking me (I'm short ....)

    Emma Jane our donor was on 5th go and I was concerned - also we wanted her straight after another cycle - I was concerned about her health - picked because she just appealed AND all previous successful donations (and she was short ha hoping for no long legged kickers in utero!) CFC reassured and glad we went ahead she gifted us 15 eggs and have x6 top grade frosties - maybe just go with your gut....be good to know she is ok - will follow up....

    Have serious baby brain and can't remember everyone's name - but congrats again - fun times!

    I had to steer clear of posting for a while (I was lurking) as I can get a bit obsessed with the whole journey and lose focus on my job - as someone else mentioned, this seems like the most important thing and somehow everything else can get trivialized.

    Lisa, Hopefull, Tannymac, Cathy: congratulations!
    Emski: You are my role model for how I want to respond if I don't get a BFP first time.

    I just wanted to share that we are still going mid/late August - donor is having her tests right now so fingers crossed that she "passes". Feels real now that I have started the OCP.

    I'm sending hope and positivity to every one of you!!
    Kay
    Ahhh the ocp! I hate the irony of having to take it, but a means to an end I suppose... I've been on the synarel a week now and back to the dull headaches and night time boiling.... Love it

    Crabby, I'm 22wks and I"ve felt nothing yet. One bub is anterior but the other is posterior so I thought I'd feel that one by now, but nothing.
    PS. I'm short too. 5ft 2

    Miss Sagi I'm 26 weeks Monday. I went overseas at 22 weeks and didn't feel a thing apart from a slight flutter of happiness from bub as I drove back hom from the airport.

    If I ever felt anything then it was a vague fluttery feeling. But about a week after I got home I felt a big thump through my tummy on my arm. Now it's like an alien squirming and no denying it. If the cat curls up next to my tummy and starts purring like a lawnmower she really starts kicking and squirming, which is quite cute. I am the only human cat trusts so the arrival of baby should be quite interesting.

    I'm not too tall either.

    Hi miss sagi

    Felt from12 weeks with my singleton son - may have something to do with it. Also both are hanging out anterior, sort of horizontal on top of each other .... Can defo feel twin bs feet already in left upper quad nearly at my rib - didn't believe it until scan as thought no way that high - and there they were on the scan kicking the probe....worried about dealing with the 'growth', breathing, getting out of a chair already - eyeing up a Lazyboy in a sale .....feel such an old lady....😀

    Hi Everyone, it's been ages since I posted...life has got so busy here with full time work and twin toddlers!
    There is so much activity on this thread at the moment.
    So after a lot of thought and serious talk, we have decided that I will return to Cape Town alone to transfer one more embryo. Our plan would be to thaw all 4 and choose the very best one to transfer. I am mid 40s and feel that it is now or never. To come to this decision was hard. Life has just started to settle down a bit!! When one has the good fortune of having a successful cycle and frozen embryos, the excitement and mayhem of having a family takes centre stage. We have often thought about what to do with the remaining frosties, but actually coming to a decision has been very hard to deal with, and so it's been shoved in the back of our minds for ages as to what to do. Initially we thought we would donate them on, however now we know what they could become, we feel somewhat different. While I would have never been a mum had it not been for our lovely donor, I feel a deep sense that these embryos and their potential belong with us. This must be a very common dilemma. So while we would love a sibling for our boys, if it is unsuccessful, then the door can be closed once and for all on that chapter. I do want to be able to tell the boys at an age appropriate time that we had embryos left and tried again (either successfully or not). I'm not sue how they may feel about 4 potentially full sibs being given away anonymously, so this is why we would thaw all and pick the most developed to transfer, and discard what was left. Anyone else having these thoughts?
    Have a great weekend. WJ

    Wilson Joy - it's such a hard decision to make. I was so excited to have 5 frosties but now our cycle has worked and we are 31 weeks pregnant, my mind keeps wandering what to do with them. I'd love to try them all but this will be our second child and at 45, this pregnancy has not been kind to me at all. My husband will be more than happy with two. Like you I couldn't imagine giving them away or throwing them out without at least trying one more time. I guess I have a while to decide but it's going to be a very hard decision!!

    Hi mardicharli, congratulations on your pregnancy...not long to go now! I regret not getting back on the horse sooner, and basically avoiding dealing with this issue. I was fortunate in that my pregnancy was very easy and I have been blessed with two lovely easy boys. Who knows what another pregnancy would be like?! Having another child will certainly wreak havoc on our lives, but we have plenty of love to share...not so sure about the finances though! I would be off to work within 6 months and my partner would have to stay at home (and probably work on weekends) like he does now!
