Blossom74 please don't watch those - that is just pure torture!! Don't do it to yourself hon... I can't even watch movies where there is a pregnant character, very hard to sit through and I usually go sit into another room or turn it off. I always change the channel when there is a baby story on the news or a current affair. Can. Not. Handle. It.
This is SO out of character for him and he swears blind that he wants a family with me but that he's very worried about my health. That's all fine but the way he delivers the message leaves a lot to be desired and I've had enough. Can't even have a nice night out at dinner without me leaving in floods of tears. This is not the relationship I signed up for. That counselor better weave some magic, DH has got a LOT of work in front of him to convince me that we have a future.
@Summer yes doesnt he know you get more bees with honey.? Is it due to recent virus and bells palsy. Was he ever concerned it was a stroke? Etc. Thought he may loose you? I only ask cause they say naturally men tend to save the wife/partner before the children in stress situations its a protective instinct. However women are all about their babies and tend to put ourselves last and our lives at risk without thought.
sorry to hear you had a bad night out, Summer. I hope you two can work it out.
So sorry infinity 888. Please take care of yourself hun . Hugs
Precious 40 good luck for Monday. . Fingers crossed everything will be fine.
Blossom74 please try to avoid watching those videos. I know it hurts big time . Sending u hugs.
Calypso 75 thanks for letting me know information and your views on Ukraine. I will definitely keep in mind all those things you said and be extra careful , but honestly we don't have many choices for egg donation plus surrogacy. And the clinic I am researching about has lots of info on net. Let's see ..
Gagingi .. I m pretty sure Mexico has banned commercial surrogacy as well.
Blondeinbrisvegas how are you going love ?
The Ukraine clinic is showing us the pics of the donor , but we are not able to meet them. Girls who go to SA ... Tahli .. can u please tell me do you meet the donor in person ?
We have made an appointment to see the lawyer as well. And written to the Aus Embassy in Ukraine as to how much time it takes to get the baby's passport etc..hope they should guide me as well.
We had donr all the research work for India .. When it recently banned surrogacy. . Then Ukraine came in to the pic as its totally legal there plus I know Ukraine is not a first world country , but then I think neither was India .. The only difference I think is the geographical location ... Any thoughts ladies ?
Geez the ladies on this thread are such a special, special group. Honestly, it blows my mind every time. Thank you all for being the beautiful souls that you are.
@infinity888 hon I know you are spot on with your train of thought and I thank you so much for putting forward that point of view because it is an important one and very insightful of you. DH's very much loved Mum passed away from a brain tumour and one of the first signs was her vision going. I have no doubt that my Bell's triggered a lot for him with my eye a bit droopy and the fact that Bell's can be caused by a brain tumour. Mine is definitely viral, but it was a few days of tests to confirm. He is absolutely hopeless with anything medical - so yes, I think you are on the right track and maybe I should cut him some slack because I think his reaction is very fear based. He just has to learn to deal with his emotions and communicate them effectively because he's frucking up bigtime with me at the moment.

They look ok. I was under the impression there was only a woman moving in - a teacher apparently - which makes sense as I suppose this is the time of year teachers would be moving for their new tenures. But she had a BF with her, and A DOG! God help me, she better be looking after it because I don't need another round of dog-feeding to contend with. She did have a car - a little white hatch back thingy, which looked in decent condition. Hopefully she is ok. I will, of course, be bailing her up and giving her the run-down when I see her at the mail box....
No, I didn't see that clip. But I'll be off to google it now
Oh @Summer, I''m so sorry you had such a crappy evening. I really sympathise because I can imagine (if I were you) I would be feeling a whole lot of pressure to just GET ON WITH IT and your DH is in constant opposition trying to stall things. I am an impatient person at the best of times and that would really wear thin with me VERY quickly. Hugs to you hon, I don't know how you hold it together as well as you do. That counsellor has his work cut out for him with your DH I think.....
