So firstly, he must be about 61 now (the same age as my Dad!) and if my child wanted to meet him when they turned 18 then he'd be 80 (if he was still alive). So he also has 5 x 21 year old donor children plus 3 x donor sibling teenagers. He also has 2 birth children. Like I said, interesting.


    That is interesting @Tahli. Are you considering him as an option? I can't say much I suppose, as my DH is in his mid 50's.

    Sorry @Blossom74, that wasn't meant to cause offense in any way. It just freaked me out, the thought of creating a baby with a man the same age as my Dad!!
    My son is on holidays with his Dad at the moment so I've called this week 'get my sh*t together week!'. It's where I'm getting some time to just stop, breath and really think things through instead of sprinting from one thing to another.
    In my heart I've always wanted to do another OE cycle...to do the first 10 days of an OE cycle & see if I can produce more than 2 follicles. If I cancel the cycle at that stage I will only be $500 out of pocket.
    So I guess this apt with LB on Wed has spurred me to confront it. I had a good chat with the DS co-ordinator & the finance dept to get the current cycle costs. So it's giving me something to think about.

    @Precious40 I am so sorry to hear your news and know exactly how you feel. @Blossom74 you put into words what I'm sure most of us on here have felt at one time or another along this journey as we say goodbye to little souls that never quite made it. Be kind to yourself hon, have a good cry with the doggies, they are great for that. I hope for a miracle for you as well.

    As a side note.. I know it's a long shot but after reading @anira's post yesterday I suddenly though to check where I am in my cycle and realised I'm due to ovulate tomoro... I haven't paid too much attention to having
    s e x around Ov time in recent months with DP's sperm issues....

    It's only been 3 weeks since he had his procedure but I thought 'what the heck... Maybe we'll get a miracle?!!' And so we did the deed twice today ������ (she says blushing!!)... Gotta be in it to win it I guess???


    Hell yeah you do! If there was any chance at all that DH and I could fall naturally, I'd be all over him like white on rice
