@ECM1981 protocol ?! Lol I have no tact... Yes it is a little weird and to be honest I like the anonymity of the whole CT thing.
Thats exactly why I haven't said anything, as I went over there for anonymity as I didn't want the donor in our lives from day 1, but I think you are right, donor siblings are different.
ECM1981 - you make me feel like a celebrity lol
@JulieMalooley i cant believe some people! I have slowly told my girlfriends of the fact we are using a donor and they have so far been ok. My mum says weird things sometimes and still doesnt quite get it, she keeps saying ooh can you use my eggs? Um no mum, your 64, you had infertility, and your my MUM!!! Haha god! But we have not told my husbands family yet. Im afraid of how they will react. Strong catholic family in Ireland. But my sister in law is having a baby in June, the same time we do our next cycle in CT. Im sure we will need to explain why we chose to go to SA for another 'safari' instead of flying to ireland to visit the new baby. I wish they knew how hard we were trying and how much we were spending! I guess they will find out soon. It is going to be hard to be super happy about a new baby when we will be going through the 2ww! Yes you are a celebrity Julie! Wow the feelings you will get holding your bubs!! Amazing!
Thanks for asking how my Tubal Patency went yesterday girls. All healthy which is great of course, but doesn't give me any answers as to why my embryos are implanting, producing hcg, then stopping at 13dpo. Frustrating.
So it'll be onwards and upwards with a new ED and see if that makes a difference.
It wasn't me was it @Miss Sagi? I'd want to know!

ECM1981 for your mum to offer!! I love it. I have not really told anyone about the donor egg situation. I had a girl at work ask and I could sense she was struggling with fertility herself so I told her hoping it would help her and I told my hairdresser as she is turning 40 and single and when I told her I was pregnant she was like oh cool I still have heaps of time I can get pregnant later. Think she was shocked when I told her statistics!! Anyways I agree with juliemalooley just say nothing to no one about going to CT. I didn't even tell my work mates. Just said I'm going on holidays have something personal to attend to. Wonder if anyone worked out the dates when I announced I was pregnant!!
