    Did anyone else have to wean in a hurry to do another round.....? I am really trying to wean...it has to be done soon...but I really enjoy breastfeeding so I am my own worst enemy....any tips?
    🤗hi Mr & Mrs Tittle! Wow 11 months already where did that time go ...
    (I guess I shouldn't be surprised our babies are now almost 6 months old 😳)
    Yes I still read along (although don't always post ) DH and I are giving ourselves 12 months to decide if we will head back to SA for a FET. Twins have been a lot of hard work but also extremely rewarding. On the good days we want to head back asap.. On the harder days we think we might be done.

    Can I ask if any ladies have had success with a totally unproven donor? I know we are taking a risk....

    It's my donors' first time donating but with a good AMH and slim, super fit, and 21 years old - I don't know if that makes up for anything??? Nervous...

    Hi @MamaKes, I went with an unproven donor earlier this year and had a fantastic result. 14 eggs retrieved 9 fertilised and 8 blasts. 2 transferred and I am now 10 weeks and 1 day pregnant with a singleton. I have 6 frozen blasts - 4 great quality and 2 good quality. I must admit I was VERY nervous about going with an unproven donor but I just couldn't go past her as she was a really good physical match, and I am so grateful that my gamble has so far paid off. She was 28 and had a good AMH. The donor you have chosen sounds fantastic - I think her age is the key factor. I would probably choose a young unproven donor (assuming everything else checked out) over a proven donor n their 30s. Wishing you all the very best with your donor journey. FF xx

    Mamakes we happily tried an unproven donor for our first ED cycle. For us it wasn't a good result (13 eggs, 7 fertilised. 5 blasts. 2 Tx'd. None frozen and a BFN.)
    However for us we believe this was attributed to our MFI issues not the fact the donor was unproven.
    Your donor has some excellent stats and you should be confident that you will get a good result.
    Even with proven donors they can have an 'off' cycle that doesn't yield good results.

    All proven donors, were unproven once. I think if they're a good match for you and you've done all the investigations you possibly can into their potential for success....AMH etc then it's worth giving them a go.

    Even with a proven donor, you can have a bad cycle and some of the criteria the agencies use for saying someone is proven is a bit dodgy in my opinion.

    @Tahli hon if you're interested please go and take a look at a post on Facebook... On Egg Donation Australia... Post by a lady called Nive Clarke. She is writing about wanting to donate her remaining 5 embryos on ice to someone after completing her family with the birth of her twin boys, now 5 months.

    Hey @Blinky76 ... I too have had a reaction to Gestone. I stopped injecting Gestone after my BFN ... over 3 weeks ago.. however a lump on each butt cheek has appeared...which are red and itchy. Seemed to peak in itchiness and brightness about a week ago. Was this similar to your reaction and what action did you take? I want to plan my next move.. my one and only frostie to transfer...but dont want to if this is likely to hang around for a while. I would like to transfer asap... so hoping the lump doesnt hang around for months.

    Your advice or advice for anyone else would be great.
