Wow this thread moves fast sometimes!
Welcome @KateG! We heading to Greece early Sept to see Dr K
Sorry to hear of the bleeding @kymmymichell but it does seem to be fairly common with DE/IVF ladies doesn't make it any easier though! I'm dreading it.
@wetsetter, with my son I waited til 14 weeks before telling anyone and even then I would have been happy to not tell a soul until he was born - LOL! I felt like I held my breathe the whole 41 weeks.
@laiyabelle Dr K hasn't mentioned anything about sperm donor for us at all, however my DH has had extensive tests on his 'swimmers' to make sure that they not only go in the right direction but they can go the distance - LOL! It cost us around $400 (?) and I can't remember the name but I'm sure someone here would know, it tests the sperm over the course of 5 days for stamina, endurance and DNA fragmentation. Our FS said the results were very good but we do have a lot riding on them (so to speak) because we really want to use his sperm so there is some genetic link to our son.
I do remember someone back on the old thread going over and discovering that her DH sperm was not up to the task so they used did a double donor.
We are still all on track to head over early Sept - I'm so nervous and excited its crazy! My sons passport arrived today and mine should be here in the next 2 days. Still looking at accom but airfares are booked and paid for, time off work booked, time off school booked and I'm trying NOT to start packing - LOL!
