Thanks @Miss Sagi! Yes, a completely beautiful gesture and one for which I am whole-heartedly thankful for.
Part of me can't believe that with my own ED I still had about 25 embryos going on the afternoon of day 4 and I sat down with my FS and Nurse chatting away about how I could donate my 'spare' 20 embryos to Aussie women. By day 5 I had lost all of my 'spares' to donate.
If The 3 Amigos all survive the thaw I've signed a consent form to transfer all 3. I'm excited about trying a new ED's embryos!
If, god forbid, I have to do a fresh new ED cycle and am successful at some point (!) I wouldn't hesitate to donate my embryos to another Australian woman. I'd love to help if I can and also having a full or half sibling in Australia has become a much higher priority for me now.

Miss Sagi! You're obviously out of the newborn fog!! I'm pretty sure they have embryos too because I had a chat with my nurse about why they had so few embryos in their bank. She said once couples have created their families they're reticent to donate their remaining embryos to the bank because by that point they're full siblings. The majority of couples choose to let their embryos succumb instead. I understand that, and that's why I could only donate to one of the women off here I think.

The sunnybubs are here!Went for a Doppler scan on Wed to check the umbilical cords. At the end of the scan they called my OB then came back in, said go home, get your hospital bag and go straight to hospital.Scan appt at 11:30am, wheeled to theatre at 4:30pm. At 5:14pm twin left was born, he is Robert Charles, 2325gm or 5lb2oz at 46cm. Then at 5:16pm he was joined by twin right, now known as Charlotte Joy, 2020gm or 4lb7oz at 45cm.They are doing relatively well for 36 weeks. No breathing support needed, Robert is now off his IV, Charlotte will probably need IV fluids for another 24hrs. Photos to follow.
Welcome to the world Charlotte and Robert!! Amazingly wonderful news @Sunnygirl04!!! I'm so thrilled for you. I very much look forward to seeing their sweet little faces. Thanks for taking the time to share your happy news with us. You must be shattered after your c-section. Tender hugs for all three of you, xxx.
