    @Tahli, congrats on getting an early appointment, hopefully you will be able to get onto any testing etc quickly after that

    @Precious40. WOW! I can't believe all 12 fertilised! That is just amazeballs. Fingers crossed they all survive the next few days as well


    AFM, I'm off on my last business trip of the year tomorrow but I'll be back Thursday evening to wish you all a Merry Christmas.


    Hugs to all,


    Blossom

    @Tahli I understand. Our son has always asked for a sibling. We started for one when he was 18mths old. He is now 8. As they get older they stop asking. But it was so hard when he was younger. He now calls our french bulldog puppy his sister. Which we all laugh at. The mums at school ask if we have any other kids.. They soon click its NOT a choice. No family have any idea we are actively trying AC. I dream of the day to tell our son the good news. Who'd of thought about a 10yr gap was for us? Hopefully anyway! Of all the people in the world, he is the one we are doing this for. I am the eldest of 5 kids, so I know what he is missing. But, I can see what he has that I could only dream of. Every one if his friends that come over are wide-eyed at what our son has. But, he'd swap it for a brother or sister I know for sure.

    We will get there.
    We all will.
    We have to.
    I cannot see an alternative.
    Too damned stubborn to wave a white flag.

All of his friends have siblings so that's what a family looks like to him. Bless him.

I m even scared to transfer them inside me... have decided to give it a months break and see when we get the results....

    Bongley heartiest congratulations. . U really deserved it hun

    Faithshopeandlove praying that everything gets better very soon

    Precious 40 great results . Good luck...


    Does anyone know of any active surrogacy groups/forums in aus ? I sometimes think I am doing injustice to my embryos by transferring them inside me... so I start thinking on the surrogacy route. Any kind of help or advise would be really appreciated
    Big, BIG ((((Hugs))) for you Luv!!!😦

    I can see why you feel the way you do right at this moment in time. The month's break sounds like it will give you & DH a bit of breathing space to decide where to go from here r.e the surrrogacy route.

    I don't know of any Aussie forums myself though @Bongley has given you a good lead. I'll do a bit of research myself on God forbid....Google!!! & see what I can find out for you.

    I'll also have a look on some other parenting forums that some of my other friends/family are members of & if I discover anything of interest I'll report back asapxoxo

    Congrats on your two little girls I don't think I knew the sex until tahli mentioned it
    No @Bongley I'm not overly concerned. When I feel more like it's actually going to happen and we start planning and buying stuff then it will start. That's just the kind of person I am. I've always been pessimistic as things always seem to go bad or I get let down so I mentally prepare in advance. Pretty screwed up but it seems to work for me. The donor aspect doesn't even cross my mind to be honest and doesn't even come into it. Yes it's probably two girls but I'm still hoping they are wrong as I'd like a little boy for DP, but for myself, I'd be happy with whatever they are. Two of the same sex is probably better for the kids as they would hopefully be closer.

    Yes dr m can request the scans, he mentioned to me that it might be something that should be looked at. He is an obgyn as well as reproductive immune stuff

I think if we decide were def doing DE I will ask her. With the understanding that under NO circumstances is she allowed to feel guilty if she says no. It would resolve so many issues that race around my head. It would mean the child would still be connected to its family and history. It might create another set of issues down the track (ie finding out ur auntie is ur biological mother), but we are very close, so would always be very involved in each other's lives.

    Seeing my niece has def made me feel it's going to be important to at least ask my sister.
    @Charlie74 I hope my comment didn't bring up any previous hurts or tender spots. As I'm fairly new to this forum I wasn't aware that you'd previously discussed asking your sister. I sincerely hope I haven't stirred anything up for you.

    I'm in a similar boat with a much younger half-sister who is an amazing (perfect) young women and we'd probably give up trying for OE if she agreed to be our donor, but I'm still too timid to ask. I don't want to put pressure on her. She is single, wants kids, and has PCOS. I'm hoping if we get to DE stage I can muster the courage to ask, or better still, if I float the idea she might volunteer (maybe she can bank some eggs). I've found when talking to her about IVF that she was much more well informed that I'd expected, really compassionate and very mature. I'd love the family resemblance and I'd love our bub to be able to know their biological heritage, but at the same time that would change our family dynamic forever. It's very hard.

    Wazza gave us a news clipping recently about mums passing on DNA in utero which might be of interest to those considering DE and also those who have DE bubs and notice some resemblances to themselves. http://www.express.co.uk/news/scienc...y-Nick-Macklon. The peer-reviewed article can be found at:
    Vilella, F., Moreno-Moya, J. M., Balaguer, N., Grasso, A., Herrero, M., Martinez, S., ... & Simón, C. (2015). Hsa-miR-30d, secreted by the human endometrium, is taken up by the pre-implantation embryo and might modify its transcriptome. Development, 142(18), 3210-3221. (If you want to read it and cannot download the article please let me know, as I don't know how to attach a PDF here).

    @Tahli, maybe explain that you think he is perfect and perfection takes time, so you want him to have an equally perfect sibling? Just a thought, poor darling (and by that I mean both of you).
